My Scroll-To-Top is not working anymore since the last update was installed. STT is 4.9.1 and I am using FF56.0.2 64 bit. I configure STT and it says saved at the top, but when FF reopens nothing was saved. Can anyone point me to the xpi download of a previous version please.

I have kept FF v. 56.0.2 because of certain add-ons that I have come to rely upon. That version is shared by all users. However, I would like to add the newest version for a second user. How can I install the current version for only the second user without affecting v 56.0.2 for the primary user?

Each new version will not work on my machine. I'm forced to stick with version 56.0.2

I (and most of my coworkers) use a Windows 7 laptop. Any version of Firefox after 56.0.2 simply will not open. We must either use 56.0.2 (which is a security risk, per the Mozilla website) or we have to switch to Chrome or IE. For many years, I have used Firefox (and use the latest version on my home computers), so all my bookmarks and processes are based on this browser. Every posted solution either requires me to make changes to the latest update (which won't open, so I can't change it) or it goes to a technical level that I can't handle. I've seen many posts about this problem (or similar), but apparently, it's not something that mozilla can fix, since I've loaded each new version as they come out, with the same result and have to reinstall the 56.0.2 version. Rather than losing a growing group of customers, if someone has a fix for this, let me know and more importantly, let mozilla know, so they can update the next version and bring us back!

You are asking people to support Mozilla Firefox by joining and donating but when you indicate to me how to use it to install it and what you say doesn't coincide with what you have on your page, it is frustrating to say the least. In your instructions it says clearly to Go to Menu, press Help, but, alas, there is no Help on the Menu! I think I will uninstall Firefox and go back to what I had before. Your technical support doesn't help me at all. Why don't you change your program to avoid these problems?

I can't decide if this is a Firefox problem or not, but I'm starting here because it makes the most sense to me. I do not allow any cookies to be stored except by the exception list . But when cleaning up my PC at end of day, I notice all these cookies in my CCleaner that should not be there I do have other browsers installed, but never use them & their privacy settings are set to block all cookies as well. Anyone have any clues as to what is going on? Thanks in advance.

I could not seem to be able to add any images so I hope this works... [img]https://farm1.staticflickr.com/874/40451042655_b73d92d928.jpg/img [img]https://farm1.staticflickr.com/879/41346455381_a10b096127.jpg/img

Please, no body is ret**d enough to not know what he's doing in such pity case. I heard a legend there is about:config setting to get rid of that question.

Security should never think for the user. It should give option atleast like ("NEVER AGAIN"). Bad thing is that security treats every user as bunch of id**ts.

PS: I was seeking the support by Google search engine so I'm sure there was no solution for that.

Thanks for your support.

SO I AM STUCK WITH HAVING A BROWSER THAT RIPS AWAY THE VERY FOUNDATION OF MY LIFE ON MY COMPUTER. FAST DIAL IS REPLACEABLE; I DONT LIKE ALL THE OTHER 'FAST DIAL WANNABEES' BUT THEY ARE ADEQUATE. QUICKFOX NOTES IS ANOTHER MATTER ENTIRELY: NOT ONE OF THE HUNDREDS OF 'NOTES' [AND IT SEEMS I HAVE TRIED EVERY ONE] THAT ALL SHOUT ABOUT THEIR GREAT FEATURES AND EASE OF USE, [NOT ONE] COME ANYWHERE CLOSE TO SERVING AS AN ADEQUATE REPLACEMENT FOR QUICKFOX NOTES [EXCEPT ONE]. SO WE COME TO MY WOE, BECAUSE THE ONLY REPLACEMENT I WANT FOR QUICKFOX IS "OPENOTE"!!! NO, I DID NOT SAY ONENOTE" AND THERES THE RUB. I HAVE SPENT HOURS SEARCHING AND GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES TRYING TO FIND OPENOTE THE SECOND TIME. I HAD IT BUT I LOST IT AND I DO NOT UNDERSTAND ENUF COMPUTER TALK IN ORDER TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO GET IT BACK FROM MY COMPUTER WHERE IT HAS HIDDEN IT FROM ME. PLEASE HELP. AND THANK U VERY MUCH FOR READING MY TALE OF WOE.

If you are asked to debug a program by someone in an email and get a notice that an incoming request was detected from Client endpoint 127.0.0.1:65323 server endpoint 127.0.0.1:6080, is that from your own system or from someone on the net.? There is a warning the browser could be taken in control by remote client. Is the person connecting to one of the ports and using the other to access your pc. Or is it all on your own network?

Hello, I 'm amongst the people that reverted back to Firefox 56 after the Quantum update for the add-ons alone. (mainly Classic Theme Restorer and NoScript) I would like to know if there is a way to install Quantum along with v56 on the same windows 10 PC.

Having both versions installed will allow me to continue using my favorite add-ons, while monitoring Quantum for new updates and add-ons , trying to customize it to my liking and hopefully stick with it at some point.

Thanks in advance.
