I went to 'About'and was told I am on version 41. I pressed the button to search for updates but was told none were available... I believe the latest version is at least 59, so why can't I get it? I'm running Android Lollipop (5.2 or maybe 5.3).

Firefox no longer appears in Google Play Store; in either Updates, Installed or Library.

I received a new laptop at work with the latest version of Firefox installed, 58.0.2 . In order for an add on for prefabs we use to work. We need to use version 41.0 or lower, most peers are on 38.0.2 . I have uninstalled 58.0.2 and installed the previous versions with no issue and able to get the add on we use installed and that works fine. When it comes to adding bookmarks they will not be displayed in my Toolbar or in the Bookmarks tab but if I visit the site the page shows as bookmarked. I have done all different ways to display them and it will not work. Uninstalling the older version and moving back to the latest version all my bookmarks appear as they did before as well as every bookmark I added from the old version.

I have tried syncing on the latest version with all my bookmarks to be synced with the older version, it doesn't work and sync error continues to display. Exporting the bookmarks and tried Importing to the older version, they will not show or be displayed. At this point I am lost and no one knows or has seen this before. Working at Rackspace I have asked around and no one can find a solution to this. Many other co-workers get new laptops and are able to downgrade back to the older version of Firefox to use the prefabs with no issues. Its been a week now that I have been reading forums and trying various things and cannot get anything to work.

Flash Player is not working after update. I keep seeing all at least 5 different variations on how to fix this issue. Is anyone at all on the same page here? It was rather simple to install the Firefox update that disabled Flash Player. But it's certainly not easy to re-enable it. If I can't have a solution as easy as it was to install the upgrade, I am asking for a new update to correct the issue since your the tech savvy people not me, I can't determine which of the numerous solutions that were posted.

For several reasons, mostly add-on compatibility, I need to use V41 I have gone to the Options area and then to Advanced and have checked "Never check for updates " so it should NOT automatically update itself. However, it IS updating itself to V43 - and of course some of my Add-ons are not compatible.

Am I missing something??

Any help would be appreciated.

I have following HTML code which creates a dialog box when clicking the button.

On first click there is a horizontal scrollbar, however text is still readable, however if you click the button second time, the text is hidden under scrollbar.

How do you fix this?


<script type="text/javascript"> function clicker() { alert('SomeLongMessageWithoutSpacesInIt_SomeLongMessageWithoutSpacesInItSomeLongMessageWithoutSpacesInIt_SomeLongMessageWithoutSpacesInIt\n' + 'SomeLongMessageWithoutSpacesInIt_SomeLongMessageWithoutSpacesInItSomeLongMessageWithoutSpacesInIt_SomeLongMessageWithoutSpacesInIt\n' ) } </script> <input onclick="clicker()" type="button" value="click">

My problem is simple!

I Just upgraded my firefox 41 to firefox 47 to some security HOLES that fixed in it. However, as usual Firefox team takes their users as granted and while fixing issues, bundling some features that they think their users will love it while most of us hate it to the bones!

Most of the times there are no options to disable these features and enabled by default.

One very annoying and obvious upgrade is search!

You can see in the screenshot this is my search bar.

1- Why I would want to see some empty buttons in there?!!! 2- Why I would want to add Mozilla support to my search engines? 3- And why would I want to see change search settings in menu? 4- And why should I need to install a plugin to disable this stupid search popup with the one that existed before? 5- Why firefox devs don't make their new search style a plugin so those who love the new look go and download it? 6- or even better, make it a pre-installed plugin so I that hate it, can go there and remove it?!

In version 41 there was an option to disable this new search bar which is also disabled after 43!

Is there a way to restore classic search in firefox 47 without using a plugin? or in other words make search that looks like picture 2 now change back to what it looks like in picture 1
