Maff add-on will NOT open any maff file saved previous to the latest update of version 41.0 of Firefox.

The latest version of Firefox is NOT backward compatible - WHY??

Troubleshooting information below shows Firefox version 40 because I had to uninstall version 41 and re-install 40 to be able to view my previous maff saved pages.

When can I expect a fix for this Firefox maff failure??

Or do you suggest I use another browser??

Hello Firefox team,

When i start Ff teh browser starts with 20 tabs ( all addons who needs to be switched on) when i do that in the addon menulist by klicking on switch-on at all the 20 addons and restart. Ff works normally.. Like previous versions..

I'ts not a big thing, but more unhandy, Ff use to be work easy for me but this is quit odd..

Please advice, many Thanks..

Hi,

Over the past few days, I've been having a problem with Firefox (on Windows desltop). It has recently stopped saving add ons I install, even those which I previously had installed and were saved.

An example is "Awesome Screenshot" which I have used had installed previously.

I have not installed any new software, or updating anything in the last couple of weeks so I can't see how that is the cause.

I have tried restoring firefox, but this has not solved the problem.

Anyone able to assist please (as its driving me crazy having to accept the installation of each ad on, every time I open a session of Firefox) ?

Many thanks.

I am using a specific addon called Pwdhash that is critical for me and the security of my passwords (by making sure I don't share them on multiple sites, without needing to carry around a password manager).

I updated to Firefox 42 yesterday and at first the addon was working fine. When I visited the Addons settings of Firefox however, there was the message "Pwdhash will be deactivated when you restart Firefox" as if I had personally decided to disable the addon, but clicking "Undo" didn't result in this message going away. And just as it said, upon the next start of FF the Addon was disabled, with no way whatsoever to turn it back on.

The fact that Firefox 42 works just fine with the addon until the first restart proves that FF 42 is in fact functionally compatible with the addon. Something weird must be happening that is preventing the addon to keep being installed. On the Mozilla page for the addon at https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/pwdhash/ it even says that Mozilla has specifically marked the addon as incompatible. That makes no sense to me, again, it was working just fine. I didn't get any of the usual prompts about addons that are disabled because they are outdated after updating to Firefox 42, this is a different case (clearly exhibited by the fact that in those cases, the outdated addons are immediately disabled on the *first* start of the new FF version).

So what can I do to fix this? I really want to update my other computers to Firefox 42 as well, but this bug makes me defer the update for now.

after I updated windows10 to build.10568, firefox add-ons are removed themselves everytime I reboot my pc.

this never happened for several years since I started using firefox. (from win7, 8.1 to 10, on 4 different PCs)

I tried turning on w10's administrator account, formatting system partition and clean installing the OS, using latest beta version of firefox.

Nothing changed.

is there any clue?

I have a number of Add-ons, and the icons on some of them take up a lot of room. So the navigation bar is crammed full. I added the Add-on bar that shows up at the bottom of the screen. However, I haven't figured out how to get the Add-on icons moved to the bar at the bottom. I'm sure it's something very simple but I haven't found the magic combination to do that yet.

I would appreciate any help/suggestions you can give me. Thanks for your help.

I don't know if it's relevant but I'm using two Toshiba laptops running Windows 7 and the other is Windows 10. Both are 64-bit. And it's is Firefox 42.0.

I have set up latest version firefox V42.0 as enterprise wide software running on windows.

I want to have the Markdown Viewer add-in (markdownviewer@thiht.fr.xpi) available and active for all users.

I have used the CCK2 add-in (cck2wizard@kaply.com.xpi) to specify all the details. Everything works fine for my account when accessing firefox, but new users recieve the following message

  • * *

[Exception... "AddonManager is not initialized" nsresult: "0xc1f30001 (NS_ERROR_NOT_INITIALIZED)" location: "JS frame :: resource://gre/modules/AddonManager.jsm :: AMI_getInstallForURL :: line 1897" data: no]

AMI_getInstallForURL@resource://gre/modules/AddonManager.jsm:1897:1 AM_getInstallForURL@resource://gre/modules/AddonManager.jsm:3014:1 observe@resource://cck2/CCK2.jsm:847:15

  • * *

The add-in isn't copied from the firefox install folder (which is a read-only mapped drive on an external server) to %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles.


Question: What should I be doing so that new users can use firefox and apart from the "importing settings" type dialog everything is seamless and the markdown viewer add-on works?

I always have to tick mark "Allow this installation" to make all the Add-ons work. I have to do this every time i restart my Laptop for some important updates or other reasons.

Can a Feasible Solution be provided for this issue?

Invisible Hand appeared to stop working, so I re-loaded it and re-booted my PC, to no avail. I disabled Adblock Plus in case that was the cause, but all that did was slow everything down and produce loads of adverts. I then tried Price Goblin, again re-booting, but that doesn't work either. These are the only three add-ons I have installed. Can anyone suggest a cure please?
