Is there an easy way to downgrade from Firefox 49.0.1 to 44? Or, do I need to remove Firefox and download again? I've been reading that the issues I'm having with the Selenium firefox webdriver work better with the version 44.

Programming in PHP. kind of a form (actually it is not a form but it uses form elements - js is used to submit.) When submitting, data is stored in session variable, and the page is reloaded, same form is shown, with data modified (formattet different). This shows data the way the user typed them - not the way PHP formats them.

Useless.

And yes, I have verified, with a different display section, that PHP is actually doing what it's supposed to - but firefox does not display data in input lines, the way they are programmed - they do not display the programmed value, but the value the user typed last time.

Likewise the web tool, does not show the actual sourcecode, but a modified version of it. Selecting "View Source" does not give the same source as "Inspect element"....

A site I am working on and had no problem loading in the past month suddenly displayed the following error after I loaded a cookie acceptance script in my backend. Tried clearing cache and all history but doesn't work. As this is a commercial site, I need it to work on all browsers. Please advise.

"The page isn’t redirecting properly. Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

When using the certificate import manager in Firefox it doesn't read the pfx files.

When I checked this morning, one of my WordPress sites only displayed a few of its images in Firefox, although they all display fine in Chrome, Internet Explorer and Vivaldi. I've tried disabling all add-ons, which didn't help. So I backed up my profile and updated to Firefox 49.0.2, which seemed to fix it. But after about 15-20 minutes, I saw that the problem returned. And there aren't even place-holders displaying... the images just aren't there. Also, when I go to the media library, NONE of those images display there, although their descriptions are all present when I click on them. And if I snag their URLs and enter them directly into my address bar, Firefox displays them fine. I had a friend check with FF too, and everything loaded fine. I'd really appreciate any ideas on where this problem might exist. It seems to only be a problem when FF goes to my pages, because the images will load independently. This has me thoroughly stumped! The site is http://topshelfcopy.com/ and the two large images beneath the nav bar are http://topshelfcopy.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Surf1-cropped.jpg and http://topshelfcopy.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/banner2a.gif

I use StartSSL to generate free certificates for my personal sites. Occasionally firefox has a heart attack because it can't verify a signature or whatever. I really, really, really don't care, and I would like to disable all OCSP checking in my browser. I've tried toggling the option under Options->Advanced->Certificates for "Query OCSP responder servers to confirm the current validity of certificates" but that doesn't seem to make any difference. I know that my certificate is valid, as it was working just fine for the past week and is valid until 2019. It also works in every other browser on my computer, just not FF. How can I just completely stop OCSP from doing any checks, since that option doesn't fix the problem? Is there something in about:config I can toggle or set?

for search engine purposes, since I couldn't find a answer to this exact question using these search terms:

OCSP response has an invalid signature. Error code: SEC_ERROR_OCSP_BAD_SIGNATURE

I had a major update of Windows10 automatically, a few days ago since then my battery dies very quickly when I looked up laptopmag.com/articles/battery-saver-windows-10> I eventually found where I could look at what was using the battery up. It stated that firefox is using 49% of battery each time the laptop is turned on. Could someone tell me how I fix this please. Never had any problems before the Windows10 update.

I have the Firefox 49.o.1 and Windows 7 OS and Adobe Acrobat XI Standard.

I have tried switching the add-ons between the built-in extensions and Adobe's extension.

Any ideas?

Hey all,

What I want to ask is in the title. Customize does not allow this and neither does dragging. I can put the add-ons button somewhere else but I want to get a specific extension to show up on my toolbar (left of the options hamburger menu). How do I do this? I thought there may not have been enough space at first so I removed another extension, but I still can't put it where I want it.

The extension I mean is called "Close other tabs", basically I want it to be clickable and that once clicked, it closes all tabs that aren't my currently active one. I use something like this in chrome and it's really useful. Since I switched to Firefox I want the same thing, but it seems this extension only allows using hotkeys, which is a bit annoying (my brain can only take so many hotkeys and a click-and-fix solution is better for what I want to accomplish here I think)

Have a nice day,
