I have an older version of FF (V. 55) and am trying to find a way to transfer all my windows/tabs that I accumulated using the old "Tab Groups". Any help on this one also greatly appreciated.

None of the screens that I see re. "Strict Tracking"in the support pages work when I try them on my version. I want to change my tracking to "strict", but cannot find out how. Also, I see hundreds of trackers esp. every time when I have to use Google since that is the only one w/ which a few sites can deal. I am attaching a screenshot of the daily Adaware tracking cookie search that I schedule. If I had gone to Google, the difference would be that there would be hundreds, even from a short single visit w/ Google in the file name.

Any help re. either of these these two matters would be greatly appreciated. Wolfgang

Windows 11 keeps trying to change my browser from FF to their Edge spyware/virus (it asks EVERY time I start FF). I managed to get it stopped once - difficult and time-consuming, but the next Windows update re-installed it. I have used FF for 15 - 20 years and it works superbly for my needs and nothing from MS ever seems to work.

How can I stop this?

Thanks, Wolfgang

Does anyone out there know of a replacement for the Tab Groups replacement app? I have not updated Firefox past the v.55 only because I don't think it would work w/ any newer versions. I have found this to be the very best app I have ever used as I need to do a lot of research online and need something that will show all the windows and tabs on one page so I can easily go back and forth to a particular group quickly. Without this, I would have to spend hours finding the info and would only have one window in which to work. Ideally, a replacement would be able to use all the window/tab info I now have. Is there some way I could use this in some sort of legacy mode? I have several legacy apps, but can't readily recall how to do so. I think I tried this w/ the Tab Groups app and it didn't work, but am not certain. Suggestions much appreciated! Thanks, Wolfgang

I'm running an old combo linux & firefox: 14.04 & 55.0.2 Lately some sites appear as white screens, some load then turn white, some say 'old version' then white screen, and a few seem to load but buttons can't be pushed. Config probs? Are the sites doing it, or has HTML outpaced the old firefox? Happens in both normal and private mode.

Oddly, I've tried to install newer firefoxes, but couldn't install. Old linux?

Has only been a minor problem until lately.

A linux reinstall is still too big a hassle for the moment.

Thank you all.

My FF seems to believe that I am running Windows 8, esp. when I try to use hide details (below), search & support, but I have been using Windows 11, 64-bit for some time and cannot figure out how to change this. Any suggestions on how to get FF to accept this? Thanks, Wolfgang
