And I was only to re-enable three. This happened with NO changes to my browser or extensions; nothing was updated, and I didn't tweak any settings. One of the ones I can't enable is by the same creator as the ones I can (TrendMicro; others I can't re-enable include RealPlayer and Yahoo toolbar). I'm a bit concerned as it is a security measure I can't re-enable. While the one I'm most concerned is a Tumblr add-on/extension (XKit, The Extension Framework For Tumblr), because I don't want to install 500 new extensions to deal with one problem at a time, when I had a perfectly good extension that deals with all of them and already has my settings saved (including some important things archived). From what I've seen, the creator has to get the extension "signed" or whatever, which presents a problem as the last available xkit update I saw was from last year (2014). Is there ANYTHING that can be done to fix this???

Over the years I have frequently had problems with the Latest BBC News Add-on after a Firefox update (hence my previous questions on the same topic), but after this morning's latest update I just don't know what to do. The BBC icon that was previously on the add-on bar in the lower right-hand corner of the screen has disappeared. The add-on bar is visible, and the BBC icon has not ended up somewhere else, such us on the customization menu or on the tools menu. This add-on is 'signed', and so I cannot understand why the icon is no longer present on the screen. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the add-on several times, but to no avail. Until late last night, it was working perfectly. Can someone please help me?

I can no longer visit local town sites where I read news, and I can't view most sites where I read about science or weather. In example, this site will not load on Firefox claiming it does not exist but I can see it on Explorer: augmentinforce.50webs.com

Whatever is happening is a change that just bam occurred. I am sick of it.

In the same menu bar adjacent to the favourites star an icon exists that opens with the name 'Supported sites' and it holdds all the history of sites visited (this is not the history folder). I have the site set not to remember history. Down to brass tacks; all I want to do is permantly get rid of this icon (Supported sites) and it's history. I have started Firefox in safe mode and the icon will not be visible. But, as soon as I re-open firefox yes youve guessed it the bloody icon and all it's contents is still their.

I did the update online thru Firefox, however have no way of determining whether or not it was successful. Noted that Web of Trust has an update of 12--8-15, however when I click on the icon "check for updates" , nothing happens. The icon for the WOT is there on the upper right portion of the tool bar.

How do I know I have the updated version of WOT?    What does the "refresh" link do?

finding my way around the firefox website has gotten impossible. Just to get to the add-on's section took 15 minutes. You have made it more complicated than it's worth. However, I can no longer add any add-ons to my list of favorites nor can i add any to a collection. Yes, i have signed in and my firefox account is valid. What happened to the little red heart that i could click in the past to add any particular add-on to my personal list of favorites? Why can I no longer create collections? Where did these functions go? I am using the latest, most up to date version of Firefox...

Hi.

Before version 63.0 I could load my own custom web page into the bookmark sidebar. This no longer happens.

Is there a way of getting this function back or do I have to revert to an earlier version of Firefox?

It just floats there until I close it, button upper left of console. I am not a developer but I followed the instructions to fix this, as posted in here a year ago (almost exactly). The instruction to "right click" is irrelevant ... what to click? there is a list of hundreds of entries, some default, many modified. I haven't modified anything, I swear. Started about a week ago, update before last (last was within last 36 hours).

My Firefox has just automatically updated itself to version 42. The extention page under add-ons does not show the extensions I have installed. The plug in page shows the plug ins I have installed. How do I fix this? This happened on my Windows 7 64 bit partition. I installed the ' Classic Add-On' extension to see if it would fix the issue. Sadly it did not. I have a screenshot. I am unsure if I am permitted to upload it to the media gallery. I also use Linux but I have not done an upgrade therein yet.
