I've tried in vain to restore my missing history from 1st May 2011 to 14th December 2011. Can Mozilla send me these dates' history?

I have no history before 15th December 2011. I was told this should be due to a Firefox update deleting every bit of older history for security reasons.

I also have another question. Can Mozilla send me every single bookmark and history link that I've deleted? I'd like this for all the years I've been using this PC: from 2008 until now.

Thank you in advance. Any reply will be highly appreciated.

I've been recently developing/playing around with JavaScript. Two days ago I discovered a leak (my first!) in my script. I ran it for about a minute before shutting it off and creating a heap. The heap was only ~23 MB, however, Gecko runs at a snails pace after opening it (by "snail's pace" I mean >20 second click lag) I thought my script might be the cause, but it still lags when opening the heap file in an empty tab. My system monitor is showing only moderate amounts of RAM used, however one core is always at 100% when processing a click. The "unresponsive script" dialog has popped up (script is chrome://browser/content/browser.xul:1) Totally new to advanced JS debugging, so I don't have the slightest idea what is going on. I'm using the built-in Gecko, and Firefox 42 (yes I know that is ancient)

My problem: Nearly any website that I try to visit (including mozilla.org), is blocked with a "This Connection is Untrusted" error. Some sites allow for me to fix it by adding an exception under the "I understand the risks" option, but some, such as google.com, don't. I have the same problem on IE, and I don't have chrome. I thought that it might be a network proxy error, but I've selected "No Proxy" and still had the problem, and I don't have the problem on another laptop connected to the same network.

My stats: I'm running Firefox 42.0, on a Dell Vostro 1720, which is running Windows 7.

I have a heavily customised FF v42 setup I am happy with but my Firefox version is seriously out of date and it's time to upgrade. I suspect a lot of things will no longer work on the latest version (particularly some of my old addons).

To ease the transition I want to be able to run my old version (temporarily for say a few weeks) and the latest one simultaneously so I can customise the new one the same standard and find solutions for anything that is no longer supported and still use my old install/addons until that transition is completed.

I found this thread:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1061740

but the solution pointed to has links that no longer work. I couldn't find anything recent on the web or youtube that covers the Mac.

I understand the principles will be to:

1. Install current version in a different location. Is that just dragging the FF .app file to somewhere other than the Applications folder or is it asked as part of the install?

2. Use a different profile for each install. Not sure the sequence of doing this so that I don't lose my current (old) profile. I'm guessing it's create a new profile, switch to the new profile and then install current version which will "take over" the new profile. Then I can switch back to the old one when I run my my old FF?

Any help greatly appreciated.
