No reply necessary: starting yesterday, all of my extensions (Firefox Containers, Newsguard) are listed as outdated and to be replaced. Going to the Firefox Containers download page and clicking the download link signals an error about a download failure. Looks like this could be related to a change to how extensions are applied (or not) in private windows.

I (appear to have) solved this by just starting up with a fresh profile in Firefox, not a huge deal, but this may affect others as well...

Hello,

I have some add-ons enabled. Frequently like in some weeks or a month, all the add-ons get automatically removed and the message that 'your added add-ons aren't supported anymore' appears. Then I go to the addons website and I see that the same add-ons are already added and just 'remove' option appears for the same add-ons.

But then when I go to my add-ons list, the same addons don't appear. After a day or restarting browser/PC, the addons then automatically appear. This time it's been a day, and I don't remember all of my old-addons. But the addons aren't appearing and it's really been a very annoying issue.

Any help on it?

Firefox for Android v. 66.0.5 properly highlighted all "find" matches on a page. I updated to v. 67 and this no longer works.

Since you have an option to upload an image, I grabbed a screenshot with the find text "csp". This actually occurs three times in the same sentence on the sample webpage.

Also, it looks like you did not detect much info about my system, so I'm including the copied raw/json data from about:support. Sorry if a paste bin would have been preferable.

The following is not important to me, but I did find the issue so I thought I should report it. BTW, the preference "findbar.modalHighlight" also does not work but this is not a feature that I use. I tested this preference in both v. 66.0.5 and 67 and also with "findbar.highlightAll" on and off.

I like starting firefox with a blank page. Instead of a blank page I now get:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/67.0/whatsnew/?oldversion=66.0.5

I have tried closing the page (and firefox) and restarting, didnt fix it. I tried that multiple times. I tried reboot pc, didnt fix problem.

I get it, the update is new and sparkley and full of happy luck joy, but, I just want a blank page and I DO NOT want to read "https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/67.0/whatsnew/?oldversion=66.0.5" every time I start firefox.

How do I fix this?

I have been receiving (more than a dozen daily) spam notifications (links to advertising) from a site from which I downloaded music (1337x.com). You must allow it to open a pop-up window and allow notifications for the music to DL. The pop-up window opens in a new tab the 1st time you click the 'DL' link. If you revert to the original tab and click 'DL' again, you begin DLing. The pop-up tab contains ads, and again prompts to allow notifications. I stupidly clicked 'allow on the prompt from the pop-up. I need to undo that action.

Hi,

I'm using Firefox on a couple of Macs and Windows 10 machines for quite some time now. And I keep tabs and bookmarks in sync with Firefox Sync. Has been working great for quite some time.

Since somewhere last week, it started giving me headaches. It started with requiring me to log into sync again on one of the machines (can't quite remember wether it was Win10 or Mac). My password (complex 35 characters, managed by LastPass password manager) did not work. Que? OK, so I reset the password with a recovery key (2FA enabled) and was able to log in again.

Then another machine gave me exactly the same: log in again, password wrong, only way in was to reset password, etc.

It seems I can get either all macOS Firefoxes to sync -or- the Win10 Firefoxes to sync, but not both. I tried completely starting over with sync (deleting my account, setting it up from scratch). But still the same problem...

I'm at my wits end with this... Anyone else having this problem? Was not able to find a reference on google or the support forums ;-(.

I guess it started with Firefox 67.0 (which has an update as I check just now).

Any hints or help most welcome :-D

Best regards, Donald
