For unfortunate reasons too tedious and mundane to discuss here, I am stuck with Mac/OS 10.11.6. I am looking for a version of Firefox that will run under that version of Mac/OS. I did the basic research and was directed Firefox version 78. After that, I was directed to the Extended Support Release. When I downloaded and ran that, I was directed to the Apple App Store where no version of Firefox could be found. Where to next?

Can someone offer me a link to a version of Firefox that I can download and run on Mac/OS 10.11.6? Please.

WebGL has stopped working. I think this has happened with Firefox 91.

For example, http://webglsamples.org/aquarium/aquarium.html gives the error Status: WebGL creation failed: * tryNativeGL () * Exhausted GL driver options. (FEATURE_FAILURE_WEBGL_EXHAUSTED_DRIVERS)

I'm running Firefox on Debian on ChromeOS.

On about:support, WebGL 1 Driver Renderer: Red Hat -- virgl WebGL 2 Driver Rendered: Red Hat -- virgl

There are no WebGL errors in about:support

I've tried the Troubleshoot Mode but that made no difference.

Hi all After update 90.0.2 installed on my computer, FIrefox started flickering all the time a new page gets opened. I have never had such a problem before, nor I had any hardware change in the last two months. I tried several proposed solutions concerning flickering like refreshing, disabling hardware acceleration etc. but nothing helps. I wonder what happened in 90.0.2 which caused that. I just installed update 91.0 and the flickering still persists.

I am using Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit on a Dell Vostro 3750 Laptop if that matters. Thank you

I just refreshed firefox because it was constantly hanging. However, my library icon is now missing. I have the bookmark star in the address bar but I no longer have the Library icon in the ribbon. When I click on the menu bar Bookmarks is shown but Library is not. When I click on Bookmarks I see a list of saved sites, but that's not a convenient way to get to them. Does anyone know how to get the Library icon back?

Thank you

I use html pages on an internal hard drive that link to pdf documents. For some reason since Version 91.0.2 was installed I can not get the pdf documents to open with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.The new version insist on opening the pdf's in the Firefox web browser. When I click on a pdf link at an external website the files will open in Adobe Acrobat. I used the code below to test the open in Adobe Acrobat execution and it works on the w3School example.

Alright, basically I backed up my PC before I wiped it. Then decided to move from chrome to firefox. But there is an issue, I can't migrate my passwords because google chrome will not read my old LOGIN DATA file and refuses to create a CSV either. So basically I can't import about a decade worth of passwords into firefox because of a flaw in chrome's design, fantastic.

So I thought, well, surely if there are program that let you read SQL files (such as the LOGIN DATA file) if you have the password, firefox must be able to do this to right? Well no. Apparently not.

I am not sure if this is the correct place to formally request a QoL feature but I would really, REALLY, like to be able to import my passwords directly from chrome's LOGIN DATA file, I have the master password.

It was my mistake to back up my files thinking that would be enough, I should have known better and double checked if chrome could not read its own native files. But now im screwed. Help. Please.

Is there a way to return to the more slimmed-down tabs and menus design of before? Because the latest update has all my menus double-spaced, and they're so bloated now that it's really hard to find anything with half the information spread out to take double the space.

To fix this, I have tried other users' suggestions of disabling proton, which had worked previously but no longer seems to have any effect as of the latest update. I have also tried the "compact menus" workaround, but that doesn't affect the double-spacing within the drop-down menus themselves.

Ich weiß nicht warum Mozillia uns unbedingt Proton aufzwingen möchte, warum kann man nicht 2 gleisig fahren. Ich finde diese Oberfläche sehr störend. Nach dem update auf Firefox 91 ist der Abstand zwischen den Lesezeichen wieder vergrößert, obwoh ich alle Einstellungmit Proton in der config deaktiviert habe.

Gibt es eine Möglichkeit, die auch für "nichtprogrammierer" umzusetzen ist, den "alten Zustand" wieder herzustellen oder zwingt uns Mozilla nach jahrerlanger zufriedenheit einen neuen Browser zu suchen?

Danke für die Hilfe
