Yesterday, my Firefox History browser stopped saving almost all pages. The only pages it does save are ones like this: Firefox pages. I have no idea why it's doing this; I haven't been doing anything differently. I'm using an old Macbook - Mac OS X 10.6.8 - if that's relevant. I'm like a 95-year-old from the early 90s when it comes to technology, so please dumb it way down. Thanks.

About a week ago I could no longer open firefox (my standard browser)

I could not find what causes the problem. Firefox would appear in 'task manager' but not on the screen to start using it.

I came across an old version of firefox in my downloads and installed this.

I now have found out that the latest working version for me is 48.0.2. I also tried the nightly version 52 but it didn't work neither. Currently I am running 48.0.2 after the auto-update I will no longer be able to use firefox and will have to reinstall 48.0.2

I am using a desktop version of Windows 10 Pro / 64-bit / Dutch version On: i5-4670 cpu @ 3.4Ghz / 8Gb RAM

My unsorted bookmarks used to appear in the library window in a folder called Unsorted Bookmarks but now there is no folder by that name. They only appear in the toolbar, not the library. There is nothing in the "Other Bookmarks" folder. I'd like to be able to organize them in mass in the library window. Working in 48.02 and old Mac OS10.6.8. Not really sure whether this happened in an upgrade. Thanks!

When a bookmark is added to the Bookmarks Toolbar, Mozilla puts it at the bottom of the Toolbar list. The user wants a new bookmark added to the top almost always, NEVER to the bottom. Not only is the default wrong, but users are not given a preference setting for this that I can find on the Firefox site. Did I overlook it, or is this something we can hope to see in a future update?

Yesterday I played my online MSN games. A tiny video screen popped up; went to Options to block pop-ups; somehow I clicked a button that was like DRT or something and it said it would disable videos - didn't snap that it meant my games -:) I have tried re-tracing my steps and can find that anywhere. I desperately need to get the videos to work on Firefox so I can enjoy my games. The game screen comes up, click on Jigsaw and it comes up but you can not see the jigsaw puzzles.

Any suggestions - other than to tell me to stay out of the Options!!  :) :)

However, we received a "thank you for your generous contribution" of $100 (8:02 EST--we are on the west coast) just after this. Has my information been compromised?

Firefox crashes

On the morning of October 1st, 2016 I was trying to move April's webhistory into September's Webhistory by tricking my computer into thinking it was still September 30th, so that I wouldn't have to randomly search through the massive category of "older than 6 months" eventually Firefox refused to continue loading pages or even access older pages on my tabhistory. I restarted my computer & allowed an update to Firefox to activate, however when I reactivated Firefox it took a lot longer to load than normal, only for it to show a crash message after about 1 minute each time I tried to start it, safe mode & restarting my PC made no difference.

    Eventually I had the insane idea to copy all of my firefox information onto a flashdrive then completely refresh it on my main computer, however even then there was no difference. In frustration I decided to start using the vastly inferior browser known as internet explorer, I looked into Mozilla support using it. I got this computer in late July 2013, & was extremely careful with it, there were no virus threats or anything on this computer & I'm still using Windows 8.
    This is my most recent crash Crash ID: bp-c995142e-114e-4ae4-a013-4dd1a2161003
    This is probably the oldest Firefox restart crash in the chain Crash ID: bp-f9bd6bcf-f99b-4276-9ac3-e790f2161001

Hopefully this information helps some.

Using Windows 10

I've read many forums and it seems the issue has still NOT been resolved. I am using v48. Unless I KNOW for certain that this issue of NOT BE ABLE TO MOVE THE PROGRAM WINDOW ON THE DESKTOP has benn resolved in v49, what point is there to move to v49?

I've have change extensions or added new ones in years. When will this fixed? It may NOT seems important. but it is. I do NOT want the Firefox program window stuck in place on my desktop.

And what is with that silly thing (it changes color based on the tab) where there no real titlebar at the top, that actually seems to PREVENT the user from even attempting to move the window at all?

Why do you think it's good to force me to upgrade my operating system so that I can have the upgraded firefox? I will lose the use of programs that are important to me and CANNOT be replaced! There is NO free alternative to MPEG Streamclip. CopyPaste is no longer available. I use these, and other perfectly functional programs on my dinosaur Mac OX 10.8.5. The upgrades do not provide me with discernable added value. As you can see, this is a rant.
