My old PC died, luckily, I had a new (secondhand) one ready to go.

I am using a pre-quantum version of Firefox.

Where can I get legacy versions of extensions that I need?

Yes, they've all been updated and maintained, but, there are several whose functions are severaly depreciated - including one where I would now have to actually PAY MONEY to do what I used to be able to do with ease on the legacy version.

Urgently seeking legacy versions that all worked fine before my old PC hit the dust last week.

New change?? No longer different PDF handling for in-browser vs. Download panela

On FF v78.0.2 (Win 10/64-bit), it used to be that I could open PDF links within a website using FF's built-in PDF Viewer. However, after saving them to disk, when I opened the PDF from the Downloads panel, it would open in my preferred 3rd party app. This was desired and worked perfectly.

But this seems to have changed! I either have to commit to the built-in always, or an external app always, irrespective of whether I am opening from a browser link or the download panel.

This is a terrible behavior. FF should open PDFs in the download handler (like ALL other file types there) with the OS's preferred PDF handler, which, in my case, is not FF's built-in Viewer.

If open a PDF in the built-in Viewer and save it from there, why would I want to re-open it in the built-in PDF viewer when opening from the download panel?

FF's built-in Viewer is great for a quick view of a PDF, I quite like it. But if I take the time to save it, I typically want more advanced functionality, like highlighting, filling in forms, etc. It worked perfectly before, please revert and stop fixing things that aren't broken. Or at least differentiate between the download panel and website links. Is there any hope in submitting a bug report?

Viewing a national newspaper site today, Firefox popped up an odd message Continue to installation of Flash player. It then loads (tries) https://performintenselyquickapplication.icu and an ID string. I think I can run Flash already on my browser so why do I have to do this?

The URL worries me, it may be genuine but would like confirmation it is. As mentioned I can already see/use Flash so why the message?

Search for https://performintenselyquickapplication.icu returns nothing other than an Alexa position. Thanks in advance. McP/

Is there any setting option for video playback in mozilla firefox app? I try to find it but couldn't. I have problems playing YouTube video in firefox app in full screen. Whenever i tap on the icon for full screen the video goes to full screen but also crops most of the upper and lower part of the video. So I'm not able to view 100% video in full screen mode. Does anyone have solution for this. (*Please don't suggest watching videos in YouTube app because i am trying YouTube app alternatives just for one reason."I can't auto trun off captions in YouTube app even though it's turn off in YouTube app setting as well as on web in YouTube playback and performance setting. So every time i click on new video i have to manually select setting and turn off caption."

Since I upgraded to Thunderbird 78.3.2 (32-bit), any subject line I enter for a mail merge gets completely ignored and messages with blank subject lines are produced.

I have tried uninstalling the Mail Merge addon and then re-installing it, all to no avail.

Operating system is Widows 10. No other add-ons are installed but Enigmail was installed on the previous major release.

Any suggestions as to how to resolve this would be really appreciated.

Had a problem with an add-on that resulted in all add-ons being deleted. As I wasn't sure what caused the problem, I deleted Firefox and reinstalled it. After the reinstall no add-ons were present. I added back 1 that I could remember, but the second one is gone. I do not remember the name of the add-on but found it very useful in managing pop-ups, videos automatically playing, etc. Would really like to get it back. By any chance, does Firefox store add-on information so that I might be able to find the missing add-on?

Why does Firefox keep changing my default search engine to Yahoo? I only want to use Google. I go into the preferences, I delete "BrowserDefault," and have it so only Google is shown as a search engine (see screenshot) and everything works fine. But a day or two later--and this has happened a dozen times now--the "BrowserDefault" is back and Yahoo is once again my default search engine. This happens over and over and over again, and I just want Yahoo deleted and gone forever.

Why is Firefox making these changes without my permission?

After an update done on October 13, the button that I clicked on to see the menu list that showed selections like "show all bookmarks' and "other bookmarks" to see my bookmarks suddenly disappeared. The button used to be on the top right hand corner of the page, to the left of the one that is titled 'view history, etc". Now I cannot find the bookmarks. Help. Thanks in advance.

PS - When I changed/edited the post, and redisplayed the question, it did not show my changes but when clicked the "edit this question" link, the edit box contained the changes. That is confusing.

Hi, running Thunderbird 78.3.2 (whoever implemented office365 oauth2 integration, thank you so much!).

What I'd like is for every new email to be immediately downloaded into the local maildir folders. If I switch to Thunderbird, I can see it's recognised new mail, but it's only when I click on the folder that it will download the contents. There are so many flags in config that seem relevant but I haven't yet found the exact combination that will always do this without interacting with the UI. Is this possible, and if so, any ideas on the exact config settings I need for this?

I have each folder marked as check for new mail and marked for offline use but this is not enough. It seems to always work for the IMAP INBOX but not other folders.

Is there a setting or add on or way I can get Thunderbird Automatic filters to operate on my gmail "All Mail" folder instead of my gmail "Inbox folder" ?

Explaining why: When I am at my PC I use Thunderbird to view and sort my emails but when away I use gmail on my Ipad. So in gmail I have a variety of filters that move email to various gmail folders to make them easy to read. I like to retain a copy of all my mail on a Thunderbird Local drive and to save having to remember to do it I would like use a thunderbird automatic filter. However because I pre filter my emails; to get a copy of all of them; I have to do a manual message filter of the "All Mail" folder. As well as the obvious advantage of not having to do it manually it also often creates duplicates that then have to be removed.
