I have been using FVD Speed dial for several years. A couple weeks ago, I upgraded my EverHelper/Nimbus web account to paid so that I could sync and keep all my bookmarks since I lost them when my laptop crashed two weeks ago.

Today, I get a message from Firefox that FVD Speedial has been permanently disabled. I need my Speed dials back, and I need refund from somebody if I can't use the add-on anymore. It would be nice if Firefox would notify users ahead of time before unceremoniously blocking something as critical as this. I need to be able to access my speed dials so I can at least import them to some other app/add-on if necessary. I'd also like to know how to contact Nimbus if I need a refund.

I've been using FVD Speed Dial Addon, plus its Everhelper Sync, to manage my Bookmarks: apparently, they're no longer supported by Firefox (last Update by Nimbus 2 years ago)! FVD was really convenient for Syncing & Saving my Bookmarks: what do you suggest I do, now? I don't want to lose all my Bookmarks!

Hi, I would like to ask a question about one of the add-on's for Mozilla browser, it's about FVD Speed Dial. I did not save any speed dials I did have. it worked normally all day, and suddenly I cannot use it nor save my settings to import to another speed dial because it's disabled by Mozilla for security reasons I will attach a screenshot. Is there any way I can recover my speed dial? Are they located on my PC by any chance, I cannot find them in any Mozilla folders? Would be really great if you could help me with this.

Thank you. Violeta

What setting will stop the constant notice "Download the latest version of Firefox." I don't want 20 notices per day. It's like having a child in the backseat "are we there yet?" "are we there yet?" "are we there yet?" How many times do I have to click the "Dismiss" button before this stupid software understands that I do not want updates? I've noticed that this is a common complaint. Stop the bullying by making people choose automatic updates. Many times things get messed up on my computer with updates and it is not worth the aggravation. Candace M.

Hello! I am in a work environment and I am trying to determine if there is something in our security systems that is preventing Firefox from running properly. Once Firefox is installed, it works the rest of the day with no issue but almost daily the morning after, it will start to open then instantly crash. When I check the crash logs, it shows in most of them: Modules - Filename: umppc14210.dll Version: 6.28.14210.0 Debug Identifier: B9143DE260194C88AB48EFD6782C9EAF1 Debug File Name: umppc.pdb Signed By: Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher

The Module xul.dll listed is almost always first in the list multiple times. Crashing Thread (0), Name: GeckoMain Frame 0 Module xul.dll Signature GetDoubleWrappedJSObject(XPCCallContext&, XPCWrappedNative*) Source js/xpconnect/src/XPCWrappedNativeJSOps.cpp:222 Trust context

When using the dark theme from Firefox, Google searching seems to break completely as well as some pages will not load which may be related to this.

I have already tried uninstalling Firefox, deleting all of the folders, then reinstalling with a freshly downloaded installer (Even tried the beta one) with same results. It seems potentially MAYBE related to how long ago I closed Firefox before I shut down (Like Firefox is trying to save something to a secure location and times out, then it will work but if it hasn't timed out, then it crashes... or this is my guess)

The Signature seems to change randomly for the crash between crashes.

I really am tired of constantly reinstalling Firefox but I do not want to use Chrome or Edge unless websites require it.

My firefox suddenly and without warning blocked my start page, the FVD speed-dial addon. I honestly do not care why it did, but how do I get my pages back? I mean I would have appreciated a warning so I can save my pages and links, FFS! And speed-dial also synchronizes these pages across my laptops and mobile, so I lost everything everywhere, because Firefox is an ass??? How do I get the addon back along with my pages and links?

And sure, I don't have to use Firefox if it behaves likes this, blocking my addons without a warning first!

Damn.

The Start Page add-on that I was using blocked with the following message. Because the add-on blocked without warning I can't access website links that I bookmarked within said add-on. I understand it was due to security reasons, but that doesn't recover my lost links.

"Speed Dial [FVD] New Tab Page, 3D Start Page, Sync has been blocked for your protection. Why was it blocked?

This add-on violates Mozilla's Add-on Policies.

This add-on violates Mozilla's policies as search functionality provided or loaded by the add-on must not collect search terms or intercept searches that are going to a third-party search provider. The add-on has repeatedly violated these terms despite Mozilla explicitly pointing them out. What does this mean?

The problematic add-on or plugin will be automatically disabled and no longer usable.

When Mozilla becomes aware of add-ons, plugins, or other third-party software that seriously compromises Firefox security, stability, or performance and meets certain criteria, the software may be blocked from general use. For more information, please read this support article.

Versions blocked: all versions. Blocked on Nov 23, 2021."
