I have read and applied all the fixes from previous responses to this problem and nothing works. Scrolling through Facebook is a nightmare with the page re-loading every 10 seconds, and creating a visual disturbance on screen. Please advise a permanent fix. Thanks

Where can I download Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR 52) for Windows in order to continue using the Session Manager extension? It's extremely important and vital that I am able to restore my historical sessions and also save multiple sessions going forward.

When I try to download it, I can see it will be 60 version instead.

Unfortunately I mistakenly updated my ESR 52 version today without realizing I'd lose that extension. This is very frustrating, so to alleviate the issue, I'd just like to have the older version and stick with it. Thank you.

This was my original question that has now been archived. "Today is November 14th and I allowed The download of the promised new and improved Firefox. I HATE IT ALREADY. I have lost 75% of my add-ons. I have lost the extra toolbars where just one extra positionable toolbar would help. There is hardly any options in customizing. I checked the help section where it was suggested it wasn't safe to go back so is it just a case of wait and see if the older add-ons are updated or what. It has been rendered impossible for me to use this for everyday use and I did prefer Firefox over everybody else. "

I received a few different solutions but after trying it for a couple of weeks I decided to wait for updates, that haven't materialized, so now I want to go back. I was given conflicting advice from 'Don't do it' to how to.

I am 70 years old and not completely computer literate and this scares me a little. I'm afraid of losing my add-ons and bookmarks. Could somebody please describe the steps I need to take in plain English. I did get this help last time but it was just gobble-gook to me. Thank you.

Something I do at work fairly regularly is copy and paste an entire page from Chrome to MS Word, by selecting all with Ctrl+A and then pasting. When doing this in chrome, the page text, text colors, and background formatting and colors are copied. When I do the same thing in Firefox, only the plain text is copied. Is there a way to make Firefox mimic this behavior? The two screenshots I have attached demonstrate what I mean. If needed, I can provide more info, or additional screenshots!!!

Thanks in advance!

I definitely love your browser, but there is one problem that make me sad. I regularly use the Yandex.Music service. And Firefox does not support Web Audio API on this site. This leads to the fact that the equalizer does not work on the site. All other browsers I used before (Edge, Chrome, Opera) support this API. The above problem is the only reason I can't use Firefox all the time and with pleasure.

In Firefox 60 when I go to delete individual cookies I can no longer use the "delete" key on the keyboard. This was always useful for quickly deleting any unwanted cookies, scroll using the arrow then delete. Now I have to ctrl+click, scroll and click remove. One mis-click and they all get unselected and you have to start again. How to re-enable the delete key?

Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at http://gensokyoradio.net:8000/1/. (Reason: CORS header ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ missing).

I have already set "security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy" to false I have already opened "http://gensokyoradio.net:8000/1/" in another tab, but Firefox did not ask me to add a certificate.

This may be helpful, a warning that appeared before the one above: "Loading mixed (insecure) display content “http://gensokyoradio.net:8000/1/” on a secure page"

I RECENTLY MADE FIREFOX MY DEFAULT BROWSER AGAIN. NOW WHEN SOMEONE SENDS ME A UTUBE VIDEO, I CAN'T OPEN IT DUE TO "RESTRICTIONS ON MY COMPUTER", AND THE DIALOGUE BOX REFERS ME TO THE ADMINISTRATOR (WHICH IS ME). I'VE NEVER PUT ANY RESTRICTIONS OF ANY SORT (PARENTAL OR OTHERWISE) ON MY COMPUTER, ESPECIALLY CONCERNING UTUBE. I BELIEVE I'VE RECENTLY RECEIVED SOME UPDATES TO FIREFOX. DOES FIREFOX BLOCK EMAILED UTUBE LINKS? COULD THAT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT?

Как решить эту проблему ?

" В вашем браузере отключено локальное хранилище Indexed DB Для полноценной работы Mate Translate необходимо, чтобы в вашем браузере было включено локальное хранилище Indexed DB (база данных, в которой сохраняются все ваши переводы и разговорники).

Скорее всего, ваш браузер сейчас работает в режиме Приватного просмотра, во время которого Indexed DB не работает (это известная ошибка #781982 Firefox).

Вы можете попробовать в настройках истории браузера about:preferences#privacy отметить опцию "Firefox будет запоминать историю". Однако это не гарантирует того, что Indexed DB заработает. Или же вы можете связаться с Mozilla и попросить их как можно скорее исправить эту ошибку.

Мы очень сожалеем о предоставляемых вам неудобствах, однако мы ничего не можем с этим поделать. "

I normally have a lot of tabs open and I am quite tired of how Firefox jumps wildly all over the place whenever I:

• Make a new tab

• Open a link in a new tab

• Close a tab

I would just like Firefox to behave like browsers have always behaved: new tabs appear immediately to the right. And when a tab is closed, focus goes to the tab immediately left.

I don't remember when Firefox started behaving differently but these days it seems to remember the order the tabs were opened or viewed, which causes it to jump all over the place when you simply open or close tabs.

I really think it's about time that Firefox allowed customization of these settings.

For the record, in my about: config, I have browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent set to true, but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

I've also tried installing the add-on "Open Tabs Next To Current" but it behaves quite erratically with new tabs, and doesn't have any affect at all on links opened in new tabs.

This happens on multiple machines. As soon as I click the menu button in firefox it freezes up for 20-30 seconds. This makes it next to impossible to navigate any of the bookmarks or firefox settings as I have to wait 20-30 seconds for each individual click in the menu to register.

With all the news about websites setting up invisible boxes to harvest logins & passwords, I only want to be signed in to my master when I want to sync my tabs or enter a password for a specific site; and then I want to be signed out again, without having to quit FF.

Is this possible? And if not, it SHOULD BE!
