My old PC died, luckily, I had a new (secondhand) one ready to go.

I am using a pre-quantum version of Firefox.

Where can I get legacy versions of extensions that I need?

Yes, they've all been updated and maintained, but, there are several whose functions are severaly depreciated - including one where I would now have to actually PAY MONEY to do what I used to be able to do with ease on the legacy version.

Urgently seeking legacy versions that all worked fine before my old PC hit the dust last week.

Viewing a national newspaper site today, Firefox popped up an odd message Continue to installation of Flash player. It then loads (tries) https://performintenselyquickapplication.icu and an ID string. I think I can run Flash already on my browser so why do I have to do this?

The URL worries me, it may be genuine but would like confirmation it is. As mentioned I can already see/use Flash so why the message?

Search for https://performintenselyquickapplication.icu returns nothing other than an Alexa position. Thanks in advance. McP/

Hello, i trying actually to create an add on for firefox (for my personnal using for the moment), my idea is : An Lo-Fi radio addon who plays in the background the sound of a live youtube lofi, so I made sure that when I click on the extension it opens an html file containing the live video, my problem is that : if I close the addon, or I change tab, the sound stops, how to make so that the sound plays continuously without having to keep the extension "open", to summarize I try to achieve a result similar to the extension "Nook ", I send screenshots of my code below

The good old option that existed in the Settings to turn off images doesn't seem to exist anymore. I used it occasionally to speed-up page loading when my network is slow and it really worked. Even Chrome, Brave and Edge are still providing that option. Really sad to see Firefox doing this.

PS: I know it still can be changed inside about:config. But that isn't convenient and can't be done for per-site basis.

Whenever I do a general search on the internet most websites I get are Spanish ones. How/where do I change that so I only get English-language websites? My version of Firefox is 81.0.2 (64-bits). I reside in Spain.

Had a problem with an add-on that resulted in all add-ons being deleted. As I wasn't sure what caused the problem, I deleted Firefox and reinstalled it. After the reinstall no add-ons were present. I added back 1 that I could remember, but the second one is gone. I do not remember the name of the add-on but found it very useful in managing pop-ups, videos automatically playing, etc. Would really like to get it back. By any chance, does Firefox store add-on information so that I might be able to find the missing add-on?

Why does Firefox keep changing my default search engine to Yahoo? I only want to use Google. I go into the preferences, I delete "BrowserDefault," and have it so only Google is shown as a search engine (see screenshot) and everything works fine. But a day or two later--and this has happened a dozen times now--the "BrowserDefault" is back and Yahoo is once again my default search engine. This happens over and over and over again, and I just want Yahoo deleted and gone forever.

Why is Firefox making these changes without my permission?

After an update done on October 13, the button that I clicked on to see the menu list that showed selections like "show all bookmarks' and "other bookmarks" to see my bookmarks suddenly disappeared. The button used to be on the top right hand corner of the page, to the left of the one that is titled 'view history, etc". Now I cannot find the bookmarks. Help. Thanks in advance.

PS - When I changed/edited the post, and redisplayed the question, it did not show my changes but when clicked the "edit this question" link, the edit box contained the changes. That is confusing.

This morning I got a window that stated support for Adobe Flash Player (FP) was ending DEC 2020. It asked me to either delay or uninstall, I chose to delay. After researching, it appears FP is going away. What happens when I uninstall FP? Do websites stop working? Is there a compatible replacement? I'm unable to find a definitive answer. In several web articles about the subject there is just a general, yep it's ending but nothing moving forward.
