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 updated to Firefox 84 on my macOS Catalina 10.15.7 system. At the end of the update process to Firefox 84, when Firefox restarted, a pop-up appeared that some files where suspected to be ransomware. I choose some "quarantine" button, but then the restart stopped and macOS showed a notification "The program "Firefox.app" cannot be opened" (My translation from german).

This message appears if I try to start Firefox from Finder or from Dock. Launching Firefox from the Profile Manager (via Terminal) works. Firefox is executed with my profile.

The following actions I took were not helpful: - Re-installing the Firefox-App and my profile from a Time Machine backup - Un-installing and re-installing Firefox from the Mozilla site. - Starting Firefox with a freshly created profile - Re-installing Catalina from macOS recovery mode

In the system preferences' security tab Firefox is not considered as beeing harmful.

I'd be very grateful for some hints where to look for further actions. Thanks, Ingo

My TWO questions concern this web page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-print-web-pages-firefox

1) The web page mentions a new print menu in Firefox version 82. I have version 84.02 installed. The web page above shows "this improved print menu" under the heading "Print a web page." PLEASE NOTE: the "improved print menu" shown does NOT have a Simplify Page option. That option was on the old print menu. What happened to the Simplify Page option?

2) I have tried the "alternative instructions" shown on the web page above but that alternative does NOT give me the old "Print preview settings" shown. Instead, carefully following the "alternative instructions" gives me the same "improved print menu" mentioned above. Why does following the "alternative instructions" give me the new print menu and not the old print menu (which DOES have the Simplify Page option)?

Thank you.

Hi all,

Currently running Firefox 3.5.5 on Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04

Have not been able to find a way to update to an even slightly newer version of the Firefox browser. Upgrading the OS to a supported Linux distribution is impossible with this device.

With this, what can be done to improve the browsing experience of the currently installed Firefox version, 3.5.5? 90% of websites are inaccessible due to SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP, and the sites that do connect will have breakages.

Thanks

Using current Firefox (84.0.2) on an iMac desk computer. Since Apple put out their recent upgrade to OS Big Sur (2019 ~Nov?), Firefox keeps dropping its internet connection. Works for a session, but when I come back a few hours later I see "Unable to connect..." Restarting always gets it back to start another session. But rebooting several times every day gets old. When Firefox is on the blink, Safari browser works fine, no problem. Connection is there. But my fullest set of bookmarks is in Firefox, so I'd rather use Firefox. Even more strange: Safari and Firefox both continue to work on my wife's desktop same iMac, no problem, just not Firefox on mine. Found help article "Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can" (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can), went through every step to troubleshoot. No go, still drops. Contacted Apple support and they were flummoxed. Any ideas?

Bug 513418 suggests that private browsing windows are meant to use a dark theme, like Chrome, but this doesn't appear to be the case. Without this it's hard for me to quickly tell the difference between a normal window and a private window.

Is this an intentional change, or is a bug preventing private windows from using a dark theme?

Listen, the only reason I'm typing this here is because there's no live chat/support email for me to send this to. I don't care for help, I don't even care if there's an easy solution to my problem, the fact that it exists is insane. This browser, if left unclosed for a few hours, uses WHATEVER left over space is left on my ram sticks. I have 32gb of ddr4 ram, this means that if I have 18gb/s of ram available in my machine FIREFOX RUNS AT 18/gb A DANG SECOND. That is sinfully high, I know for a fact it's just taking up whatever space is left because if it ran at even a fraction of that memory usage it would be completely useless on almost every computer in the entire world. I'd also like to point out that if you google my exact problem you will find many people like me complaining about firefox using 1-2gb/s AS THAT IS A VERY HIGH NUMBER....mine is running at 9x that number, so either I have a very special version of firefox or this browser just likes to say "oh you have enough ram to run about 100 instances of a normal web browser at the same time, how about now?". Like I said please do not offer me a solution to my problem. Please instead figure out why your web browser, which is one of the big three and has been around for well over a decade, is completely filling people's ram decks regardless of how much ram they have for no discernable reason. I should not have restart firefox or change the settings or delete a system file or run a powershell script or any other half baked "my cousin made this app for his senior thesis" style solution for your web browser used by TENS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE to work on my $2000 computer. Reeeeeediculous my friends, absolutely ridiculous.

Hello

There is a website that won't go off my URL bar suggestion. I have tried everything I came across searching about this problem : - choosing the entry with the arrows and clicking on the DELETE button (holding SHIFT or not) - removing the website from my history - clicking on "forget this website" in the history - some other things I don't exactly remember

None of this has worked... The website isn't even bookmarked ! When I type "rs" on the search bar, I want rs-online.com and not rs-particuliers.com to appear. You can see the problem is this video : https://youtu.be/Vq5dUpkf534

This is driving me crazy... I use this website (rs-online) every day, and I never use the other one... I want it to get OFF my computer... Sorry if this isn't the right place !! Ask me anything you need to know !

I'm using Mac OS Big Sur and my setup has an external display. When using any other application on my mac, I can use Window > Move to <display name> to move windows to my external display and back. Because I can map a keyboard shortcut to this function, I use this all the time to move my windows around so I don't have to take my hands off my keyboard.

Firefox however seems to be the only application that doesn't implement this for some reason. Has any other Mac user found a way around this?

Hello. I am the user of Firefox browser. My main browser is firefox for recent years. I've been using it very well. I am very satisfied with the customization of Firefox. But today, Firefox stop several times when i use youtube and google. Some youtube videos are not start, and scroll is stop end Firefox says "No response" when i am searching in google. Some of the youtube didn't run at Firefox, so I played them in Chrome and it worked well. And it was not an Internet problem. Because other online programs such as messenger worked well. I bought a new desktop and formatted it a month ago, and I installed the latest versions of Windows and Firefox. This is why I think Firefox is a problem. Please check why Firefox stop today.
