How to make update settings stick (FF 90.0.2, running on Win 7 Pro)

Whenever I check "about Firefox" under the Help menu, if there are updates, FF automatically downloads and installs them. This is not my preferred method of installing updates. When I go to the Tools/Settings and type in "Updates", I find that the "Automatically install updates (recommended)" button is selected. Of course, I immediately change this to the "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" setting, which lasts until I (manually) install the next update. At that point, the new update setting defaults back to "Automatically install updates (recommended)".

Is there a way to make my update selection stick?

I've noticed I've had a number of new Firefox updates recently. I've also noticed it takes much longer to load my initial web site when I log into Firefox. That web site is my head page, MSN. It now takes much longer to load that site than before. Is it possible these updates have caused the problem? How can I see what is causing the lengthy wait time for my head page to appear. It takes much longer than it used to. Appreciate input into the issue. Thank you.

his question has been asked AND IGNORED repeatedly all the way back to 2019 so I am not really expecting any difference now but this will be the subject of many social media posts about how Firefox pretends to be different from the other browsers but in actuality is exactly the same!

When I bring up the Firefox browser the page has macro blocking as best as I can describe it on the home page, and also when I bring up website pages. Portions of the page block out periodically during all sessions, the update didn't fix anything with my experience. I've turned off hardware acceleration, turned off all extensions as was prescribed and the problem persists and I don't know what else I can do. I have stopped using Firefox as my default browser for the reasons stated and I haven't found any solutions on the forums.

It's really dumb that one can close own Main window without warning that too many tabs are closed or there is another window still running! And that's what happened to me: i had Private window in back, closed Main window thinking that i'm closing browser, and then surprisingly saw Private window is still there. As any ordinary user who already lost tabs in past i panicked and closed the Private window too. Started Firefox once again hoping for restore, but it opened with clear window and obviously there was no "Restore session" button in Menu, as i have "Auto restore" ON in settings.

I started to search for manual way, found descriptions with manual renaming/coping backups from sessionstore-backup folder. Like these= https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1275314 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1310742 But however i tried to copy and rename - each start Firefox ignores that, clears backup folder and again clear window. Lucky i thought about coping those recover. and previous. files from sessionstore-backup folder after first browser close, so they are safe. And i'm sure my tabs are still there = checked it with https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html.

So yeah, i have at least some way to get back tabs, but i'm really angry and curious to know WHAT is forbidding me to restore that file after manual rename??!

Previously inspecting the page info (Ctrl + I) and going to the media tab, I could select an image and download it in its original file size. This has changed to where the image is now downsized, even when opening the direct link in a new tab. The image comes out squished and distorted.

Is there a fix for this? I've tried clearing all cookies & cache which has worked in the past but not anymore.

Firefox does not respond to a search request. After closing, a restart is answered by an error message - "Firefox is already running. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window." When this is done, another instance of Firefox displays. It appears that two instances of Firefox have opened when only one was requested and the second has somehow disabled the search request, either manual (direct) or from a separate application/link. I have completed a Refresh without any change in behaviour. What can I do now? Thank you Graham Garden

Since yesterday's update on my Windows 7, today I first got error messages on pages I usually visit, my home page and the Google signin page among my Favorites. The browser crashed when I tried to bring up Settings. Subsequently I could not open it again. I just shut down that computer in case repowering it solves the problem later. This is Mac Catalina. Firefox just updated here. I hope on this computer the problem does not surface.

Hello,

   About a week or two ago Firefox started asking me for my master password about every ten minutes or so even though the browser has been running all along. I understand that it asks for it when I start up the browser and when looking at saved passwords but this is happening all day long even with the browser just being open all day. I don't typically close it unless I turn my computer off (which I rarely do)

Thank you for your input!

There are no more borders around the tabs except the active one. It is hard to click click fast to change to another tab - special with pinned tabs with some icons blured with the theme I love. Also the theme-icons got deactivated and there is now the lower bar empty without the tabs. They went up into a new bar higher added. How can I fix that with boardred tabs located downwards and the intuitiv easier clickable icons back?

Hello,

every single time I wake up my Windows 7 Firefox refuses to load any website. It is a Firefox defect, because Windows's Internet icon shows that Internet is available. DNS is also working, while Firefox refuses to load a web. I need to wait 10-15 seconds until Firefox condescendingly loads the web I am trying to access. This bug is very annoying as it happens a few times each day :(
