Apologies for asking this here, but I've done the Google and can't find an answer.

Background: I keep 2-3 Firefox versions and profiles on my computer. The software is in, for example, directories FFox82, FFox84, FFox86 The profiles are in, for example, directories Firefox82, Firefox84, Firefox86 (The software and profiles are on different drives.)

When I do an upgrade, I copy the newest software to a new directory and rename it (e.g., FFox92 - so now there are 4 sw directories) Then I copy the newest profile directory and give it a corresponding name (e.g., Firefox92 - so now there are 4 profile directories). I install the new version to its directory and thenlaunch with a -p option. Then I create a new profile and point it to the corresponding folder. Then I launch the new version with the -p option pointing to the new profile directory.

This has worked for decades.

But I just tried it with Firefox 90 and Firefox 92 and NO GO. It acts as if I've never used Firefox before. No apps, no toolbars, no bookmarks, nothing.

What is going on? Am I stuck on Firefox86 for the rest of the century?

And, please, don't tell me how wonderful these new versions are and I should simply accept the change. I have a virtual lifetime invested in the toolbars, extensions and bookmarks on my computer.

I simply want to know if there is a fix and, if so, what it is.

Two days ago (9/10/2021) I updated to version 92.0 on my laptop. When I attempt to scroll/drag through the bookmarks menu, the cursor, at normal speed, stays far ahead of the active bookmark. This "lag" is also noticeable when dragging the cursor through an active page/window. This was not the case before the update.

I am looking for the last version of Firefox that allows plugins. I have several older Foscam IP cameras and they work best with the browser plugin. However, Firefox doesn't allow this anymore and I really don't like any of the viewer clients. What I would like to do is download a portable version and possibly run it in a virtual machine so I can still use the latest version on the same machine. But this would allow me to use the old plugins and view my cameras.

Any ideas? Many thanks! Randall

Hi there

I have just updated Firefox Browser from 91.0.2 (32-bit) to 92.0 (64-bit)

The following website now gives a "Server Error" splash as soon as any search operation is attempted and of course, no results are found: https://isrc.soundexchange.com/#!/search

Firefox Browser vers 91.0.2 (32-bit) still works perfectly, but 92.0 (64-bit) gives 'Server Error'

I have tried safe mode, cleared the cache and checked all Privacy and Security settings. The only way to "fix" this problem is to go back to 91.0.2 (32-bit).

Please see images attached First showing 92.0 (64-bit) with Server Error Second, Working. Same site using Vers 91.0.2 (32-bit)

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

The setting Restore previous session, on settings, general, is marked. History is kept, and the previous tabs are on the history menu (no restore session option is available, however).

Things I tried: Started on safe mode. Deleted startup cache. Refreshed the profile. Turned off add-ons.

So far, nothing works. When I close the browser with tabs open and I open it again, it starts with my homepage only.

I have Windows 8.1 Firefox 92.0 64-bit.

Now with this latest version of Firefox, when I click on a Folder on my Bookmarks Toolbar, the bookmarks are displayed in rows that seem to be double-spaced, so I only see about half as many bookmarks as I used to before I have to scroll down. Now I spend a lot more time scrolling up and down, and I hate it.

Is there a config setting that I can change or a value in about:config that I can set that will give me my old bookmark display setting back? Thanks for any help you give.

First off, I have to create an account in order to ask a question? Yea, that in itself is enough for me to leave...

Secondly, who is the idiot that thought it would be a great idea to make the spaces for bookmarks BIGGER? I installed the latest update and it never warned me that my browser layout would become more difficult because I now have to click the down arrow to see all of my bookmarks in the folders... FIRE THAT IDIOT!

Other than that, I'll be back when you decide to keep things the way they are instead of changing things. No one wants "a new look" if we did, we'd use Google or Netscape (yea, that's right...).

Unhappy.

Can I safely delete the old browser and other Microsoft products from my computer to make more room? Can I delete Internet Explorer and so many other Microsoft products that I never use? I don't use gaming, I don't use the computer for video or movies. I use my computer for documents, pictures and to connect with my truck computer for real time information. What can I delete? I am low on resources and have other computers.

Thank you for your knowledge and time to help out!
