One of the reasons I'm still using 56 is that the start page preference and home page preference are separate. I can set the browser to start with a blank page, but then if I wish to quickly go to my home page I can just click on the icon in the address bar. Don't know why this feature was downgraded in the new versions, but I'd like to update - so how can I make this be so in the new version of Firefox? I want to set the start page different from the home page like 56.

I am a developer of Firefox extensions and have had a Mozilla developer account for over 15 years. For some reason, I can no longer login to that account. When attempting to login, I get a message to "Confirm your account". The displayed email address is correct, but I never receive the conformation email. I've check my junk and trash folders and even have a filter setup to accept all emails from "accounts@firefox.com", but I still never get the conformation email. I tried setting up a new account and that works, but I cannot access my developer dashboard with the new account.

Tab Mix + allowed old Firefox to support multi-row tabs. I need it absolutely to upgrade. I googled it, found plenty of solutions that changed at every release, none worked with 70. PS: I asking using Waterfox, but Waterfox 2019 killed most legacy add-ons, so I'm looking to to back to Firefox. I solved almost all my problems, except this one which is crucial. I often have 30 opened, having to scroll is unbearable.

Why have most addons been disabled for FF 56.0.2 when updating of FF 56.0.2 is turned off

Why did the "hotfix" disable most addons in FF 56.0.2 when I have all updates for 56.0.2 turned off.

I DO NOT want to "Upgrade" FF because the non-functional "Web Extensions" will not perform the same "Addons" functions, which I have used for years, Most "Web Extensions" are now useless.

I realize that later versions of FF "provides more security" - However, the "Web Extensions" are unusable as they now have very little, if any, to even do simple things like remembering the last directory used, that FF 56.0.2 addons perform flawlessly.

So, back to my original question, when will my addons be re-enabled for FF 56.0.2?

They should not have been effected by this "hotfix" when my browser is set to "Never check for updates (not recommended)".

Respectable Mozilla Forum I want to make a question:

Till now I have used the version of Mozilla 56.02 because it was the only one that was compatible with all my addons. Today I have noticed that even this version has stopped functioning and if I try to download an addon it tells that it is impossible and that I must control my internet connection. Now i don't know the reason of this error and if there is a solution to this problem. It seems so strange that a great program as Firefox has all these problems.
Thank to all that want to answer to my question , waiting for a gently response, I salute all the Community.

Is there a fix for Firefox version 56.02 which would allow me to recover the usage of all my extensions and add-ons, INCLUDING Reminderfox?

I kept Firefox version 56.02 (on both my Win 10 laptop & Win 7 desktop) so I could still use Reminderfox, one of the features which made me prefer Firefox to other browsers. With the current issues over Mozilla's blocking of extensions/add-ons, and the only fix I'm aware of involving upgrading to the latest Firefox version, it doesn't seem there is any way forward that would allow me to continue with Firefox + Reminderfox.

I have Firefox set up to always restore all tabs from my previous session and remember my search history, but all my tabs are gone and my search history has been wiped out. And the Restore Previous Session option is grayed out.

I don't even remember how I found most of the tabs that I have up, and I only have some of them bookmarked. Can you please help me get them back? Thank you.

By the way, I don't have Firefox as my default browser, so trying to download my profile didn't work. Do I need to have Firefox as my default browser to solve this problem?

One more thing: I was having some trouble with my internet connection, so I shut down my computer and rebooted my router. Is that why this happened, and does this mean that my tabs are gone forever?

By the way, I do see a folder icon on my desktop that says "Old Firefox Data," but all the data in there is from 2016, so that's not what I'm looking for.

I really need those tabs back. Thanks!

I have an older browser, which I DO NOT want to update, as it's the last one that works with all my add-ons and bookmarks. But, even though I went in and checked the boxes to allow Studies, I am getting no information at all when I go to the about: studies page. I only see a box with, "What's this? Firefox may install and run studies from time to time. Learn more".

This has been going on for hours. No fix is showing up, much less installing, and my browser is utterly borked. Can I get the studies manually somewhere? Help would be appreciated.
