I lost access to add-ons like others. I updated FF and they showed up for one evening. Now, they are not showing up at the top right of my browser window. I tried to add a pic but could not - the Browse button accepted the pic but then just spun. I tried that 2 times.

Firefox has gotten worse and worse. I updated FF and can't view all of my Facebook pages because I need to activate Javascript but FF doesn't allow it, making FB useless on Firefox. What a waste!

I had a system crash, probably with Firefox opened.

After restarting PC and starting Firefox, most of the addons I have had lost all of their settings and were reset to default - Tampermonkey lost all the scripts I had installed, uBlock lost all settings and rules, etc. Weirdly some extensions kept portions of their settings, like TreeTabs saved tree structure despite also getting reset to default.

Additionally Firefox also got its own settings reset to default, while the tabs from my session and bookmarks were saved.

Is there any way to recover addon and Firefox settings, is there any backup of them?

I can go to https://account.microsoft.com and log in successfully and visit other Microsoft sites like outlook.com. However, when I go to bing.com it shows "Sign in" and when clicked I am briefly taken to login.live.com and then back to bing.com without actually being logged in. I have tried restarting with add-ons disabled, content blocking setting is at Standard. I have cleared cookies/web data and tried adding both URLs to Exceptions Cookies and Site Data. However, nothing seems to work.

Running Firefox 63.0 on my Mac OS 10.10.5. Have Bitdefender installed. Receiving "Your connection is not secure" when trying to get to most web sites. I found instructions on Scan SSL feature when using Windows, but cannot find instructions for Mac. Nor can I figure out how or where to turn on or off Scan SSL. How can I correct this so I can use Firefox with Bitdefender?
