Up until a few days ago I was using download helper to download various files to my PC. Yesterday I noticed it wasn't working. The file I want to download shows up in the log, I click on it, a Windows Explorer window pops up with the file name. I click on save as usual, the pop up closes and then nothing happens. No files are downloading. I don't even get a 0 byte file.

Anybody else have this problem and if so, is there a solution?

Thank you, ~k

My Firefox has just automatically updated itself to version 42. The extention page under add-ons does not show the extensions I have installed. The plug in page shows the plug ins I have installed. How do I fix this? This happened on my Windows 7 64 bit partition. I installed the ' Classic Add-On' extension to see if it would fix the issue. Sadly it did not. I have a screenshot. I am unsure if I am permitted to upload it to the media gallery. I also use Linux but I have not done an upgrade therein yet.

The "about:addons" page will not load, more specifically the page layout loads however it is stuck at "Loading [moving wheel]". The other pages such as "Appearance" and "Plugins" will load, only the "Get Add-ons" tab will not. If I click "Check for Updates" (located in the [cog] drop down menu in top right) it instantly returns no updates available.

I have tried setting the theme to Default and loading Firefox in Safe Mode with addons disabled. This has not fixed the problem.

I have attempted to attach a screenshot however it is not uploading, here is a mirror: http://imgur.com/EkyFc1X Similarly, the troubleshooting plugin installed but did nothing; I used the manual copy text method however it appears to provide no usable information.

finding my way around the firefox website has gotten impossible. Just to get to the add-on's section took 15 minutes. You have made it more complicated than it's worth. However, I can no longer add any add-ons to my list of favorites nor can i add any to a collection. Yes, i have signed in and my firefox account is valid. What happened to the little red heart that i could click in the past to add any particular add-on to my personal list of favorites? Why can I no longer create collections? Where did these functions go? I am using the latest, most up to date version of Firefox...

It just floats there until I close it, button upper left of console. I am not a developer but I followed the instructions to fix this, as posted in here a year ago (almost exactly). The instruction to "right click" is irrelevant ... what to click? there is a list of hundreds of entries, some default, many modified. I haven't modified anything, I swear. Started about a week ago, update before last (last was within last 36 hours).

I have added https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/gfycat-click-to-gif/

It shows up in the Extensions section under "about:addons" and it is enabled. However in my toolbar, there is no icon for it and therefore I cannot use it. I've tried using the "Customize" feature but none of my extensions show up there, so I cannot drag them to the toolbar.

I would attach screenshots, but even that isn't working on this support page form.

You Tube seems to be the only site affected. However i was able to download Wednesday with no problem. DH works normally, I select a download option, it starts and finishes quickly with a 0 mb result. I tried changing the download location, the name and/or extension of the file, and still the same thing.

I suspect that something needs to be enabled but what?

Thanks

Why does rebooting between Windows and Linux disable all of my extensions? (ESR 38.x.x worked, ESR 45.2.0 doesn't)

Ever since installing Firefox 45.2.0ESR, rebooting between Windows and Linux and running Firefox with the same profile between them disables all of my extensions (in add-ons). In this previous ESR, this did not happen. How can I prevent this behavior? Specifically, I have a profile which I share between my partitions. It is hosted on the Windows partition. A symbolic link is created to it from my Linux /home partition. This setup worked perfectly with all previous ESR's. But now when I reboot between Firefox installs of the same ESR version, all of my extensions are disabled, and I must manually step through re-enabling each one of them.

(And no, I don't want to use any online synchronization services to work around this issue.)
