I updated my Firefox to version 88 as soon as it came out. Continued working and browsing as usual.

3 days in, browser won't connect > close and restart > error Firefox still running in background > wait for processes to close > re-open Firefox > "You've launched an older version of Firefox - please create a new profile / Exit"

Follow the instructions, setup my profile from scratch again, login to all my accounts and proceed to get back to work. Few hours later - Firefox notifies me a newer version is released and i need to update my browser.

Not too long after, Firefox is downgraded to 87 by itself and I repeat the same process over and over again.

I tried:

  • Full uninstall / clean re-install
  • Deleting all profiles and all Mozilla folders and reinstalling
  • Some fix that's supposed to allow me to use my ver.88 profile on ver.87

Something is making Firefox downgrade to 87 by itself - This happens while I am browsing/using Firefox and causes all connections to drop and the browser to Crash soon after.

Any thoughts?

Preamble: All program updates are accepted when proposed on any of my 2 PCs, Linux or Firefox and other programs.

Situation:

  • Many multiple instances of Firefox are launched but can't be completed on my old (11 years old) tower PC (Linux based),
  • seems to saturate video card with multiple instances of screens (1 or 2 minutes at most) until it prevents other programs (eg Open office) to run
  • Tower PC works well for other programs (open office) if Firefox in not launched
  • while it works well when Firefox and other programs are launched) on my light PC ASUS (also with Linux) 3 years old.

Do I miss required minimal memory size on hard disk or on RAM, or is this an issue on Firefox, or...?

Can anyone please help and advise? Regards

I've been getting a lot of crashes on a website I'm developing - for example bp-b1597aaa-c596-4641-ad9b-a9dea0210503 . It's at the stage now where every time I open the site (or a clone of it) it crashes.

This appears to be reported at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1706429 but has severity and priority of P3, perhaps based on 39 reports when the ticket was raised. But there are now 614 of them: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/signature/?product=Firefox&signature=js%3A%3Afrontend%3A%3AGeneralParser%3CT%3E%3A%3AprimaryExpr&date=%3E%3D2021-04-27T17%3A01%3A00.000Z&date=%3C2021-05-04T17%3A01%3A00.000Z&_columns=date&_columns=product&_columns=version&_columns=build_id&_columns=platform&_columns=reason&_columns=address&_columns=install_time&_columns=startup_crash&_sort=-date&page=1#reports

This is really annoying because I'm having to do my website development in Chrome.

Once again, the Top Sites that I have chosen on the the FF Home Page have shifted, or been removed. When I add them back on (and PIN) the site shortcut is there, but now I can't get the ICON that represents the Short Cut to appear and I have no idea how to find the URL for the ShortCuts, ie., the Twitter Bird that used to appear automatically, as an example.

I tried to take a Screen Shot, but the Screen Shot does not work on the FF Home Page.

Would it be too difficult to put a "Lock" button, similar to the Windows Lock for the Task Bar. PIN does NOT work.

I have not added any extensions or made any other changes that would affect this. Please advise how to correct this, and I don't want to have to follow directions that take me all over the place like go to file such and such and check such and such. That never works and usually ends up screwing up other issues. It worked once, I don't see why it doesn't work now.

Thank you for you time and I look forward to a SIMPLE solution.
