My favorite add-ons aren't available with this newest version. I while ago I had prevented the update so that I could help using them. Now I've gotten a new ANDROID device and I don't know what version I need. I do know that I was able to look for add-ons unlike this version that appears to just show me some I can pick if I want, but there's no add-on browsing page likes there was.

So after wiping my system for a fresh windows install, I pulled out the backup.json4 and recovery.json4 from my backup drive and plopped it in place of sessionstore.json4

And all of my tabs and windows came back! So far so good!

But then after closing some tabs and moving things around, when I close the session out again, it doesn't update the sessionstore file, or any of the stuff in the backup folder to reflect those changes.

When I open firefox again it starts as a session with all my windows/tabs after the file-replace.

I use firefox for managing tutorial videos, which involves separating them into different windows/tab arrangements, so any tips on how to resolve this issue and get firefox to start updating the sessionstore would be appreciated.

Thank you!

I mean I guess it was most likely part of the developer teams goal of completely ruining Firefox mobile, but in case it wasn't. Why WHY in the name of all that is holy is this not a feature? If i want the desktop site, and set's it manually it usually loads just fine. But if i sneeze or think about changing tabs or clicking a link, it reverts to the crappy mobile version... I want it to default to the desktop site.....

I'm currently in my vacation home and I don't have home internet here. I'm connecting through my mobile phone using limited mobile data. and I selected not to download updates because it keeps updating itself like twice in a week and every MB counts in limited data plans especially if it's just 4 GB total for each month.

But now every time I open the firefox it showing download latest update popup like an annoying virus on the top right corner where 3 horizontal lines are located.

I checked the internet and previously this was an option in it's settings. Then this option removed and only hidden behind the about:config . and now it's completely removed from about:config either.

The only reason I switched from chrome to firefox was because google became an absolute dictator lately and all it's changes was to limit down my accessibility. I switched to firefox becuse it doesn't backstab it's users and they give the choice to it's users rather than dictating it like dictators. So did I make a mistake switching to firefox? Is firefox becoming just like chrome now? or is there (hoping so much) and option given us to turn off the notifications as well?

Hello, I have a mailing list with many members. I would like to create a very similar list which would include most of the members, but add a few, and remove a few from the original list.

Is it possible to make a copy of an existing mailing list, and then modify the new copy, without manually recreating the new list?

Thank you

This problem is fairly old, yet it doesn’t seem to have been addressed. I’m just bringing it up again to see if anyone from Mozilla has any insights on how that bug might be fixed.

It is clearly a bug as it has happened to a number of people on all Apple devices for well over a year. I’m afraid restarts, data clearing, etc. are not the answers.

I'm trying to completely turn off the address search bar function in Firefox. It' so annoying! I go to google. Start to type in the search bar on the page but all my typing ends up in the address bar. So frustrating! If I wanted to search from the address bar I wouldn't have gone to Google to do it. I DON'T want to search from the address bar EVER! So please don't say 'why don't you just..x,y or z'. I've managed to turn off all the address bar suggestions and whatnot with about a dozen different setting which is ridiculous. Turning off the rich results should fix everything but it doesn't. No mater what I try I cannot get text to appear in the Google search bar. So basically Firefox has stolen the functionality of the Google webpage for me. I've been using Firefox for a long time but lately I'm been questioning why a lot. Anyway, any suggestions to stop Firefox from hijacking my search would be appreciated.
