After entering some data such as the receipt date and time on the initial screen, then I continue to the 2nd screen which states "To complete this survey you need to have cookies enabled on your browser." However, I do have them enabled. Upon examining Options and then Privacy, I have the following "Accept third-party cookies: Always" AND "Keep until: they expire". Currently using Firefox 52.9.0 (32 bit). I did NOT have this problem a month ago. Any advice would be helpful.

Since Friday 25/5/2018 Firefox Developer Toolbar (SHIFT + F2) shows me hundreds if not thousands of errors on every page I visit, but if I click on the counter it'll show the Developer Console with 0 or almost 0 errors.

Just to make an example on this page it's showing me 663 errors, but if I open the console it only shows 2(3) warnings and 1 error. On some pages after a few minutes it reached 4k+ errors.

Firefox ESR 52.8.0. Yes I tried to launch firefox in safe mode and in fact I'm using the safe mode right now to write this post, but nothing really changes.

The functionality of MultiFox is something I've been needing for awhile in order to log into multiple accounts on the same site simultaneously. However, due to the fact that I also still regularly need Java for certain tasks, I'm currently stuck using FireFox ESR 52.8.0

Is there a similar add-on that works with FireFox ESR? I've tried using a compatible version of "FireFox Multi-Account Containers" but it appears to be broken too.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Trying to allow a manufacturers' system scan after suffering longstanding desktop issues but before this can happen I have to download their support assist launcher. So the problem is, the download is blocked after the run/save window with another saying unknown publisher and so refuses to start downloading. The manufacturer says check internet connection. It's fine Now I've allowed the name of the support launcher in firewall via exceptions but it still won't load. Even tried it with firewall turned off. The download Icon TzsetupSfx, is shown in the downloads folder along with its file version 1.2.0.715 and name of publisher. So what can I do to get the download accepted by Firefox. I'm running 52.7 in win XP 3 pro. The manufacturers' URL is a www.

We have a client that used to run on local computers running the latest ESR version, they recently changed to a terminal server environment and during the setup 59.0.1 made it onto their new setup. Multiple issues have arisen that were not present on the old system and we need to move them back to the ESR version on the terminal server environment. I read online that you cannot just directly import any profile versions 55.0 and up to earlier versions so I am asking if I can instead use a mozilla account to sync over their data instead without causing a catastrophe, and if anyone happens to know what I might expect afterwards if this could potentially work.

I'm running XP64 pro. The scripts on Yahoo will stall FF after a few minutes. Often I get the popup message that a plugin script has stalled and asks if I want to prevent seeing this again from the site. That's nice but every page on Yahoo is unique. So the stall happens on every page that isn't closed after a short while. The more stalls I get the slower my computer runs even though I use task manager to kill stalled processes. Then I have to reboot to clear out the FF remnants. Is there a way to kill remnants of stalled scripts without rebooting? Often FF crashes and asks me to send a report to Mozilla. Seems to me you guys should have a feature to enable extended logging for inclusion in crash reports. I have sent many requests to fix the problem. If you guys can't fix the root cause of the problem then can you at least provide a decent workaround so the memory doesn't get cluttered up with orphaned threads sucking up all my CPU power?

Thanks for your help with a stubborn problem. I have an Asus N750 notebook, running Windows 8.1, 64 bit. I reported this problem about 1 week ago and was helped temporarily by reinstalling an updated Nvidia GeForce N750 graphics display driver. However , the problem has recurred. I have tried many approaches, including uninstalling and reinstalling different versions of Firefox, including 58.0b7 and currently version 52.5.0,ESR using Profile Manager to create a new profile, checking RAM memory, using sfc.exe, and finally a newer version still of an Nvidia Game Ready version 388.00 display driver. I have enabled crash data to be sent, but not sure if this is reaching you before the crash occurs. Crash ID: bp-750d516e-1705-44fd-be90-1a4961171117 from 17/11/2017, the last successfully submitted one? Yours sincerely, Philip

Hello,

Maybe a month ago my online banking (https://ib.swedbank.lt/private/d2d/start) links stopped working with Firefox 52. I can login, but when I press any link nothing happens. Then if I try to reload the page I get this confirmation message "To display this page, Firefox must send information that will repeat any action (such as a search or order confirmation) that was performed earlier." After I press Resend button, previously pressed link opens. OS on this PC is XP.

I have also tested this issue on another computer with Win7 and Firefox 56 and it also had this problem. But after the last upgrade on this version it works fine again.

Thanks in advance

Hello, Pasted below is the report/details I get from Mozilla Crash Reporter. Is there any information in the report to help me fix the problem with my install? Thank you very much.

Clicking to launch Firefox immediately causes it to crash with the Mozilla Crash Report appearing. Even that doesn't work properly as I get a message reading, "There was a problem submitting your report."

I am connected, using IE to submit this request for help (the machine is XP). Below is the pasted Mozilla crash report information.

Thank you very much.

Firefox version 52 ESR Win XP OS. Silverlight plug-in stopped working just yesterday on Netflix and my Win XP Pro OS. I have uninstalled the older version and downloaded the correct version I need 5.1.4.1.2 and it is installed but still doesn't work with Netflix. I cannot find in the registry Netflix and Silverlight permission to run the plug in. This is a problem and needs to be fixed. I don't have the money or means to upgrade my OS at this time. I have no tv either. I have been in contact with Microsoft and Netflix and they determined that the problem lies with Mozilla. I cannot use any other browser as Chrome does not work with Netflix and Win XP either due to unable to update WidevineCdm on XP.
