I think I'm about to give up with this 'get help' thingy...everytime I press Enter/return carriage it disappears!

I don't like update 89. If you want a detailed reason from me then let's just say I have old eyes and I agree with all the complaints I've read so far. So, as I always make a recovery point before updating, I've rolled back my computer to 88 and will be staying there, thank you.

Now I would like a way to stop the annoying update notice. Please don't tell me to make files and scripts and mess with the registry...I mean, for goodness sakes, where's the button or the "opt out" thingy?

I will not be updating again until I read that I can keep the look I had without having to 'add-on' or try themes or heaven forbid make my own.

If security changes were Firefox's reasons for updating fair enough...but how did the look of a piece of software become a security issue? If this is 'new fresh' I don't want it, I'll just stay old and stale thanks.

To help test some bugs in Firefox I installed Nightly a while ago alongside the regular Firefox.

Today when starting Nightly, it used the profile I use in the normal release Firefox, for work mostly. I exited almost immediately, but when I try to run the profile with regular Firefox, I get a warning that I'm using an older version of Firefox. See attached screenshot.

Is there a way to recover the profile?

Current FF version I have is 90.0.2 on Windows 64 bit.

POST action turns into a GET, which is incorrect.

Using Apache2 to serve web pages.

Debian Linux 5.10.0-8-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.46-2 (2021-07-20) x86_64 GNU/Linux

The following appears in the access.log:-

127.0.0.1 - - [28/Jul/2021:15:17:42 +1000] "POST /scripts_php/memb_login.php HTTP/1.1" 302 314 "http://dev.webtest.info/htmlpages/login.html" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0" 127.0.0.1 - - [28/Jul/2021:15:17:42 +1000] "GET /scripts_php/memb_login.php HTTP/1.1" 200 499 "http://dev.webtest.info/htmlpages/login.html" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0"

The form method is POST and the action is to call a PHP script which expects a POST array. The "302 314" appears to be correct, but, a GET is returned immediately.

According to w3.org:-

Note: RFC 1945 and RFC 2068 specify that the client is not allowed

     to change the method on the redirected request.  However, most
     existing user agent implementations treat 302 as if it were a 303
     response, performing a GET on the Location field-value regardless
     of the original request method. The status codes 303 and 307 have
     been added for servers that wish to make unambiguously clear which
     kind of reaction is expected of the client.

This has just started to occur after a recent upgrade to Firefox. It might be caused by the browser but there might be some other explanation or configuration setting that needs tweaking. Could somebody please help.

Thanks.

I receive excel files to my outlook email in which I open or download them to my desktop. For some reason out of the blue I am unable to save these attachments. The option screen to save does not appear. Every time I hit the download button, firefox quickly opens up a new tab but then it instantly closes. And the file doesn't appear on my desktop, which is my saved files location. When I attempt this on google chrome, it works just fine. Anyone know what could be causing this? I am up to date on my Firefox version.

Every time I switch on my laptop, I found that it was heating up without opening anything. I open the task manager and I see that Firefox is running and using a huge amount of the CPU and apparently consuming a lot of the battery as well. Firefox is not there in my startup list. I have reinstalled and installed multiple times. I have tried changing toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart to false. I have tried changing browser.tabs.remote.autostart to false.

If I do open Firefox now, without ending the task that is already running, and then close it later, it is still running in the background. Only way to stop this task running is to end task and I have to do it every time I switch on my Laptop.

I hope I have described the problem well, please let me know what other details I can provide. I am putting a screenshot of the task running as well. Thanks in advance

I can no longer log into my vudu.com account using my Firefox Browser, can this be fixed, or do I have to use Edge now? There are other websites that I could never log into with Firefox, but I consider those sites that I don't have to use, but I have a movie library on vudu.com, I pretty much have to use vudu.com. I never had a problem logging into vudu.com before, it has to be one of the last couple of Firefox updates.

Previously inspecting the page info (Ctrl + I) and going to the media tab, I could select an image and download it in its original file size. This has changed to where the image is now downsized, even when opening the direct link in a new tab. The image comes out squished and distorted.

Is there a fix for this? I've tried clearing all cookies & cache which has worked in the past but not anymore.
