The Add-On feature no longer works. When I click on it in the about:addons address, it just gives a paragraph of what add-ons are and the rest is just a white, blank page. Has been working just fine (several years) until just a couple days ago. I found this out when I had to re-install a couple legacy apps due to a FF foul-up (tried to upgrade even though I refused). I still use FF 55.0.3 because that is the last version that the Tabs Groups will work with. This single feature is far more helpful to me than all the other features of FF combined, so you can see why I want to keep it.

How can I get Add-Ons to actually let me add on again?

I have always kept my Mozilla Firefox to Firefox 55.0. However, even though I have my Update set to never, when I opened my browser this morning it updated to 72.something or other. That version was missing all of my bookmarks and my saved passwords. After reinstalling 55.0 I found my bookmarks and got them reinstalled but even with all of the so-called help articles I cannot find any of my passwords, and I had a lot of them! All I can tell is that under the about:profiles there is only one listed and that's the current one. Can anyone help me find and reinstall my passwords?

FireFox has disabled several add-ons that I like due to "add-on signing" and not being verified. As far as I can tell there is no way to override this. I DO NOT appreciate FireFox taking away options and treating its users like children. Which was the last FireFox before this "add-on signing" crapola?

Since the bug-outbreak thing happened a few days ago, all or most of my addons have stopped working, forcing me to use them as temporary ones. I understand that there was a fix rolled out for the latest version of FireFox but I sadly cannot that version. This whole thing confuses me deeply. I've got into about:config, disabled the need to have them signed, used the addon going around that adds the fix, tried a bunch of methods I saw all over the place but nothing seems to be working. I sadly do need the use of the old addon methods. (Not to mention some other changes visually were just flat out ugly with no fix in sight.)

I'm told all of the past version fixes only work on the 'ESR' versions. Where I'm stuck on FireFox 55.

Is there no way to just force addons to stay on even if not signed in the first place? Or auto-load temporary addons upon FireFox launching?

Add-ons/Extension Update: FireFox Extension Fixes Released! Updates for Versions 47-thru-65!

Updates – Last updated 14:35 PST May 14, 2019. We expect this to be our final update.

  • If you are running Firefox versions 61 – 65 and 1) did not receive the deployed fix and 2) do not want to update to the current version (which includes the permanent fix): Install This Extension to resolve the expired security certificate issue and re-enable extensions and themes.
  • If you are running Firefox versions 57 – 60: Install This Extension to resolve the expired security certificate issue and re-enable extensions and themes.
  • If you are running Firefox versions 47 – 56: install This Extension to resolve the expired security certificate issue and re-enable extensions and themes.



Updates – Last Updated: 17:04 EDT May 9, 2019

A less technical blog post about the outage is also available. If you enabled telemetry to get the initial fix, we’re deleting all data collected since May 4. (May 9, 17:04 EDT)

Mozilla CTO Eric Rescorla posted a blog on the technical details of what went wrong last weekend.



Updates – Last Updated: 19:28 EDT May 8 2019

We’ve released Firefox 66.0.5 for Desktop and Android, and Firefox ESR 60.6.3, which include the permanent fix for re-enabling add-ons that were disabled starting on May 3rd. The initial, temporary fix that was deployed May 4th through the Studies system is replaced by these updates, and we recommend updating as soon as possible. Users who enabled Studies to receive the temporary fix, and have updated to the permanent fix, can now disable Studies if they desire.

For users who cannot update to the latest version of Firefox or Firefox ESR, we plan to distribute an update that automatically applies the fix to versions 52 through 60. This fix will also be available as a user-installable extension. For anyone still experiencing issues in versions 61 through 65, we plan to distribute a fix through a user-installable extension. These extensions will not require users to enable Studies, and we’ll provide an update when they are available.



"Updates – Last Updated: 11:51 EDT May 8 2019 (From Mozilla Blog)

Firefox 66.0.5 has been released, and we recommend that people update to that version if they continue to experience problems with extensions being disabled. You’ll get an update notification within 24 hours, or you can initiate an update manually.
An update to ESR 60.6.3 is also available as of May 8th. We’re continuing to work on a fix for older versions of Firefox, and will update this post and on social media as we have more information."



A Firefox release has been pushed — version 66.0.4 on Desktop and Android, and version 60.6.2 for ESR. This release repairs the certificate chain to re-enable web extensions, themes, search engines, and language packs that had been disabled (Bug 1549061).

There are remaining issues that we are actively working to resolve, but we wanted to get this fix out before Monday to lessen the impact of disabled add-ons before the start of the week. More information about the remaining issues can be found by clicking on the links to the release notes above. (May 5, 16:25 EDT)



"Last Updated: 00:54 EDT May 5 2019

Updates:

Some users are reporting that they do not have the “hotfix-update-xpi-signing-intermediate-bug-1548973” study active in “about:studies”.

Rather than using work-arounds, which can lead to issues later on, we strongly recommend that you continue to wait. If it’s possible for you to receive the hotfix, you should get it by 6am EDT, 24 hours after it was first released.

For everyone else, we are working to ship a more permanent solution. (May 5, 00:54 EDT)

There are a number of work-arounds being discussed in the community. These are not recommended as they may conflict with fixes we are deploying. We’ll let you know when further updates are available that we recommend, and appreciate your patience. (May 4, 15:01 EDT)"

I back-up my files off-site daily and I've noticed quite a few unknown type files such as "https+++" among others. Some of these are quite large adding to the back-up time and I'm sure most of them are not needed.

So, my question is: If my computer was damaged beyond repair or stolen, which files/folders would I need to get me back to the last time I used Firefox?

I'm still using Firefox v. 55.0.3 as the later updates do not allow me to use the "Manage Tabs" add-on and that is the best feature by far for me. W/o that add-on I may as well be using Chrome.

I have autosaved my username and password for a banking website and my pocket wifi login page. I want to remove it so I can't automatically sign in. I went to Options, Security, Saved Logins and removed the websites. However, the two websites are both still autofilling the login details. They no longer appear under Saved Logins. I've also tried adding the websites as an 'Exception' but this hasn't worked either. I've tried closing Firefox and restarting but it hasn't fixed the problem.

I tried going into the about:config, but the only entries under "print.print_" were only for Epson; Brother doesn't even show up. My new printer is a Brother, but a quick search turned up nothing with "brother" in it, even though it does show up as the non-default printer in the drop-down window. I want to have the Brother printer come up as the default printer, but can't find anyway to do it. I have checked the support pages and searched, but found nothing that seemed to apply. I'm still using Firefox 55.0.3 as the later versions don't support the "open tabs from last time" add-on and that is a great time-saver and organizer for me. I am using Windows 7. Thanks! Wolfgang P.s.: I have the Brother printer set up as the default in my Windows Control Panel. I also tried restarting the computer.

Since Firefox v64, I can't resize an attached graphic when creating or editing a PM or Thread Post on a Invision Forum ( v4.3.5 ).

I access an Invision Forum v4.3.5 and I am able to Resize an attached graphic in a Personal Message or in a Thread Post. That is until Today.

I can't resize the graphic in FF v64.02 So I went to my notebook where I still use FF v55.03. I had no problem editing the size of a GIF . I click once on the graphic where I get the ability to stretch the graphic size either larger or smaller.

So I tried to downgrade FF. I went from v64.0.2 to 64.0 with no difference. I then downgraded again to v60.0.2 but that was unstable and crashed FF on every launch

So I am back on FF v64.0.2 on my desktop. If I click on the graphic to the right, I can not "stretch" or "compress" its size. If I double-click on it I get a dialogue. I can decrease ( compress ) its size but I can not increase ( stretch ) its size past its default pixel size.

Therefore I did a test on a Virgin PC ( Win8.1/64 but tested using only Firefox Win32 installers )

I installed Firefox v56 and tested the resize capability and I incrementally upgraded and tested Firefox 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62 and v63 and all were able to be Resize a given graphic.

It was when I installed Firefox v64 that the ability to Resize a graphic failed. 

I guess I never noticed it on my Desktop until Today when I updated it to v64.02 and tried it.
