I'm running Firefox 68.9.0 ESR, and it keeps whining about an update being available. I don't care, because every time I update, one of the extensions I use every day is disabled without my permission. How do I get firefox to shut up about it once and for all? In other words, where is the "do not check for updates" command hidden, or, how else can I shut this thing up? I have, in the past, liked firefox, but it has, over the last few years, supported less and less of features I use daily, at a minimum, many times/day for most.

So how do I shut these annoying alerts about an update I have NO intention of installing off? "You can't" is not a valid answer. Nor is "just upgrade and lose half of the stuff (again) that you use all the time." Sorry if I sound angry, but these constant annoyances (and Thunderbird is doing the same---so same question for it here) are really getting on my nerves.

I have Firefox almost working the way it should. Still can't click in a bookmark toolbar bookmark and then click on "add bookmark here" like I could. That was one of those I used about 10--30 times per day, depending on what I was working on.

Thanks.

Hi, Until recently the right click, 'save image as' method of saving a site image has worked flawlessly, now it goes into a death spiral & crashes Firefox. See image attached.

Am running Win10, 64 bit. Win is up to date. Firefox is 77.0.1 (64 bit)

Have run the diagnostics/help files suggested in the help files to no effect. Have similarly run Brave which is also doing the same thing whereas Edge doesn't seem to be affected.

Have deleted & re-installed both Firefox & Brave without change.

What am I not doing right?

Thanks

I am using Firefox Browser Version 76.01. (64-bit). When logged in to google account through Mozilla Firefox, I cannot log out of by clicking on the profile picture, as the click does not open the log out menu. And when using google image search, when an image is clicked it is unresponsive and the picture I clicked doesn't load. What can I DO? I tried many options which are there in various forums, but none of it solves the problem. Desperately thinking of abandoning using Firefox.

Ever since Firefox automatically updated to version 77, I see a blank page on startup instead of it loading up my homepage. I have to hit the homepage button to load it up now. I had not changed any preferences, so it wasn't caused by anything I did.

FYI, I noticed that if I open a second Firefox window, it does load the homepage up automatically.

Based on past questions about similar issue, I checked to make sure about:config browser.startup.page was set to 1, and it was.

Hello,

I'm having some problems with cookies exceptions. When I add cookies exceptions from Settings > Privacy & Security > Exceptions they do not work. When I add exceptions from that page - Page info > Permissions they work. I think there is something wrong with the Exceptions in the settings area or some hidden setting I don't see...

By default I am using private mode and blocking all cookies.

On attached image you can see first entry I added in the settings page and second from permissions menu in page info.

Would appreciate your help.

Thank you.

I've had no problems for years when using PayPal to pay for Ebay items, but suddenly 14/02/2020 the PayPal pop-up window just sits there with the spinning circle. Paying by credit/debit card works fine, but I want the payment to come straight out from my bank account. Followed the simple instructions like disabling AdBlocker and checking Pop-ups are allowed, as given in other answers. Still stuck for a solution, saw elsewhere a reference to user_pref file but that just confused me as I'm not that technically minded. Any help would be gratefully received.

My office recently adopted SharePoint to replace our VM Ware servers for storing shared data. My colleagues are able to drag and drop email attachments and files from FileExplorer into SharePoint, but I cannot. Finally I realized they use Chrome, Edge, Explorer and other browsers and this functionality works fine. It's only Firefox where it does not. Is there an add on, extension or setting to address the shortcoming. I love Firefox, but if it cannot drag and drop to SharePoint like every other browser does, I will be compelled to (reluctantly and regrettably) make a switch. Please help!

Firefox was hanging up. I got frustrated and I ended the session using task manager. On restart my windows came back, but the tabs were missing the page information. I ended the firefox session again, and did a restart of windows for good measure, hoping to get everything restored.

Then, when windows restarted, I restarted firefox, and I was presented two options - SAFE MODE, or REFRESH. I did SAFE MODE. Things looked ok, so I ended that session, and tried restarting again, hoping to restart normally, without SAFE MODE on. I got the same two options again - SAFE MODE or REFRESH. So, I thought REFRESH would get me back to my prior session. Nope. That reloaded a bunch of things, like bookmarks, etc. and gave me a new session.

So, I looked under the three line menu. No ability to RESTORE PREVIOUS SESSION!

I also looked in my profile as found in ABOUT:SUPPORT - PROFILE FOLDER, and in my SESSIONSTORE-BACKUPS folder in my profile folder my RECOVERY.baklz4, and my RECOVERY.jsonlz4 have todays date as DATE MODIFIED, but only are 33kb each - way to small for the hundreds of tabs I had open in multiple windows - I believe.

So, do I have any other recovery session folders available that I might be able to use?
