A piece of software I need to use for work requires an older version of Firefox (Firefox 68.4.2 ESR) to run, so in the past, I've had to delete Firefox and re-download the older version which has worked fine. However, I recently got a new Mac and now when I try the same thing it's not working. Whenever I first open Firefox after downloading it, it opens as the correct (older) version, however it does not seem to be able to connect to the internet and I get the spinning wheel that never ends, and then whenever I close out of Firefox and reopen it, it automatically updates to the newest version. I have multiple times gone into the settings on Firefox and changed my preferences to check with me before installing updates and I've gone into the settings of the App Store to make sure it's not automatically updating any apps or programs. My computer is currently running OS version 11.1 (Big Sur) and I'm wondering if maybe this version is too new to be compatible with Firefox 68 ESR? Any help, ideas, or advice is greatly appreciated!

I was not able to check my bank account in Firefox browser because, there are two pages to login through, one is for username, the second for password, but after entering password, and clicking submit, it does not load the page, it just sits there doing nothing at all.... I then tried it in Chrome browser, but it did the same thing, so I thought maybe the site was having problems, but a quick Google search for isitdownnow showed that the site was up and running fine. Next, I tried it in Safari browser, and it worked. After that I opened Firefox again, and tried again, but it worked this time. Can anyone explain this to me?? Thanks in advance!!

I have a new laptop with Firefox 84.0.2 installed, but every bookmark is grey. So difficult to look at. Would prefer the old yellow colour.

I have been asking for this since 2017 i think.

We need a fix to turn off forever the splash notification after taken a screenshot. I have been using the temporary solution of turning on "Pause notifications until Firefox restarts" but we need a definite solution on how to turn that notification off forever.

Hello.

Flash files stopped being supported on January 12th. I am a user of a site where "mini chat" uses swf files as the sound of a new message. Since firefox does not play these files, is there any option to notify (e.g. beep sound) that a site has tried to play such a file? maybe some kind of addon?

Or is there a way to make swf files work only on this page?

I have used Thunderbird for almost 20 years and I love it. I have not had basically any problems with it until this fall when I started to direct my gmails through it too. Before that, I only directed the emails from my university's server.

My computer's OS (C:) memory started to run out. The Storage claimes that my Apps & Features tool 189 GB although I did not have a lot of different kinds of programs there. I just found out that the reason is the hidden files under Users/...../AppData Properties/Roaming/Thunderbird/Profiles/..../ImapMail/imap.gmail.com/[Gmail].sbd takes 143 GB!!!

I do not understand how this is possible and how to solve this problem. Can I safely remove the folders under [Gmail].sbd? If not, how to solve this problem? My computer is soon dysfunctional because the OS memory is running out.

Thank you for your help.

Every time a link is clicked or the page is refreshed, the Reload/Stop button plays an animation of the reload arrow morphing into an X and then back into a reload arrow.

This is very distracting. How can the user disable this animation?

Help guides from 2017 say to change the following about:config prefs: browser.stopReloadAnimation.enabled toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled But these do not exist anymore.

I wanted to transfer my logins and password from one Computer to another and I managed to do so by copying the logins and Key4 files stored in the profile folder. Now, I am concerned about how easy this process was. Does it mean if my computer is hacked and those 2 files stolen, anyone will be able to access all the websites where I am registered?

Thank you

Hello,

This problem just started with the last update or two from firefox, and the other browsers CHROME or EDGE loads the site just fine. To view how the twitter feed should look, just load in those browsers and you will see it styled.

MY SITE https://www61.myfantasyleague.com/2020/home/15387#0

You notice the lower left twitter feed, it is not being styled by css through js. I get a console error that reads. DOMException: Permission denied to access property "frameElement" on cross-origin object

I am not sure how to fix this with a setting turned off or on maybe, or if firefox can fix in the browser, as i really dont want to use Chrome.

Thank you Dean
