after you had that mess with the addons and the missed certificate you made an update

an AGAIN TABS are ON TOP!!!

WHY!?!?!?!?!?!?

why dont you finally recognize that the user wants to decide tabs on top or tabs on bottom himself?!?!?

i have xp here, firefox 59 something and without giving me a notice my tabs are now on top and no way to get them down again

please find a solution for that and please respect users wishes for tabs on bottom

i dont like tabs on top it is not logic, not convienient and i do not care if you think the other is better. if you think that you are free to use it. please let me and millions of users with tabs on bottom go their way

All of a sudden, I get a message that one or more installed add-ons can't be verified & has been disabled. However, they seem to still work. But I get the message shown below every time I launch Firefox. This just started happening last week.

I've shown a picture of some of the "disabled" add-ons. However, I know for sure that Roboform is still working.

How can I get rid of these messages? Thank you in advance!

Since the Friday bug, yeah, half my add-ons disabled. The Mozilla "fix" link is blocked by Firefox. Can't go there. Did all the stuff I need to do, still broken, FireFox blocks numerous sites, add-on, downloads....I have XP-64, and FF 52ESR, for several reasons. One, I'm old, and am familiar with XP...two, cannot afford new computers and the mental anguish of learning a new system (and dealing with MicroSoft tracking telemetry).

Most of the add-ons I have are no longer available anywhere. So I sincerely hope the "fix" for ESR will allow re-enabling, as they cannot be re-loaded.

Images of system exist, I just hope I do not need to do that right now.

What is the status of the ESR fix, and how thorough is it? Why is FF blocking me from going to the "fix" link?

BTW, all FF updates have been turned off for some years, all add-ons have updates turned off. I don't need any programs "updating" outside of my OS.

For many weeks now a weird block has been placed on my computer, initially followed by "Microsoft technicians" with Indian accents calling up and offering to "help," for a fee. I managed to find a way around this block, but today they have "upped the ante" and I can't get around it. Can you help or tell me where to go for help? I suspect this is beyond Comcast help.

I have Firefox ESR 52.4.1. At first that seems perfectly fine. All webpages open perfectly fine, as Firefox ESR 52.4.1 supports the very newest HTML5 standards. All the samples at https://typedesign.netlify.com/consolas.html and https://typedesign.netlify.com/customfont.html work perfectly fine.

But not all extensions are compatible.

The problem is, I can't really update it. Each time I update Firefox, the word "Quantum" appears in the About Firefox dialog, which clearly indicates that this isn't an official version of Firefox. So I have to downgrade to get the proper Firefox experience.

I regularly use the backspace key to go back a page. I have always had about:config for this function set to 0 which is supposed to allow this. But, it seems some websites prevent the backspace key from functioning (it does nothing). I am using the latest available version of Firefox for Vista.

How can this be fixed?

My websites: oldpostofficeantiques.com, chepachetantiques.com and glocesterantiques.com will not load in Firefox. I've had this problem with other WordPress sites in the past. Other sites load fine in Firefox, including another WordPress site I created: https://www.sharp4.co

I've have tried nearly every suggestion identified in you your HELP forums, including but not limited to cleaning malware, clearing cookies and cache, updating Firefox, updating connection, and so on. NO GO - I continue to get an "Unable to connect" message (can't establish a connection, etc.)

Strangely the site loads fine in SeaMonkey. It also loads in Safari, Google and other browsers.

I'm utilizing the latest version of Firefox on an IMac running Sierra 10.13.4

I've had a lot of problems with Firefox lately. It is becoming unusable.

I like to test my web pages as much as possible at home before uploading to a server. I do this by setting up empty drive partitions for my various sites, so that 'root level" access will work similarly on a server or from the hard drive. So, for example, a line on a page like...

<script src="/scripts/siteScripts2.js"> </script>

or

<link rel="stylesheet" type = "text/css" href="/styles/fonts/fonts.css"> <link rel="stylesheet" type = "text/css" href="/styles/spcPageStyles1.css" >

Will reference the files from the root level, as if it was on a server.This works all the time with Chrome and IE, even back to IE-8. So Mozilla Firefox must be blocking file references from local hard Drive root level. If there is a config variable or two I can set to allow it from firefox, I'd appreciate knowing about it. I'm satisfied testing with Chrome and IE, but FF is an important browser to test with.

Thanks in advance!

I am currently on Firefox v52.5.0 ESR and I want to stay there, because the new Quantum is useless to me. Unfortunately, I didn't set my update to never before the latest round of automatic updates. Everytime I bring Firefox up, it starts the update before I can set the update switch to never. I then wind up on v60+, and I do NOT want to be there. How do I go about installing v52.5.0 and having it stay there?
