I have accidentally deleted download list by pressing clear downloads and I know it does not deletes my original downloaded files but just the memory. But for me those information are very important I must have a record of what and when I have downloaded. I using Firefox maybe more than eight years.

Upgrade to Firefox68 from Firefox54 - lost tab bar & address bar options; customization doesn't help

So, I finally bit the bullet and installed Firefox68. But nothing works as expected and I can't find anything in the options to help me.

Main problems at the moment: My address bar in Firefox54 shows lots of options. They disappeared when I upgraded. In Firefox54, when I open multiple tabs, they open on their own "line". In Firefox68, all I see is a "floater" with one tab. I want all my tabs to show at the "bottom". (I use tabmixplus).

I have tried to upload images but it just "circles and circles"

So let me try to describe Firefox54: Top line: oldstyle menu (File, Edit .....Help) Next line: address bar search bar pocket googleoptions home ...... Next line: bookmarks Next line: Prefbar Bottom line: open tabs

Firefox68: Top line: old style menu (File, Edit, View, ...) Next Line: address bar & search bar and that silly 3bars to show the menu. (everything else has disappeared) Next Line: bookmarks (all OK)

That's it. Even when I load multiple tabs, all I see is a tab that "floats" over the address bar & if I open multiple tabs, they seem to partially "hide" behind the menu area so I can vaguely see them behind the bookmarks & address bar - which is very disconcerting

I am on an interactive web page. It asks me to go to my e-mail (aol) to get some information such as a password then to return to the web page to continue. I do not know how to do this without losing the web page. Currently I go to another computer to read the mail and then go back to the first computer. Or I minimize Firefox browser, load another browser to read mail, then maximize Firefox. I am looking for a simpler way of doing this. (If I close tab it goes back to desktop) George

I went to options general language and colors then picked new colors. Colors remained the same. white text on black background on menu bar on top. However, in the options it started by saying that I have black text on white background. Which is opposite of what is actually happening. The white text on black background is very difficult to read. The version I use is 64.0.4 for win10 I read related topics did not quite understand the instructions.I need step by step instructions. Could you please help me. Thanks George

Hi all, Regarding the known Issue from 4th May where Add-Ons stopped working, I wanted to ask if a fix is planned to be deployed for the older versions (ex. 54.0.1.). I read, that first a fix through "Study" has been released, after that, the newest version 66.0.4 should fix this. https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2019/05/04/update-regarding-add-ons-in-firefox/ https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-ons-disabled-or-fail-to-install-firefox Back then, when updating to a newer version from 54.0.1. I got the message, that some extensions like Adobe Flash / Macromedia Flash were dangerous and are permanently disabled, which made me stay on version 54.0.1. I only use Addblock Plus to get rid of some malicious Adds (the benign Adds stay) and Norton Security to stay protected. Will there be a fix for older Firefox Versions sothat I can continue using the Addons and continue using Firefox?

Thank you.

Clicked on a random tab and it said something like "Congrats! Every Saturday, Firefox picks 7 lucky users to spin a wheel and get a chance to win a great prize! I won an iphone apparently... but thinking it's probably a scam of course. It did have comments from other "users" probably fake of course, saying "this works! Got my gift as promised" but still think it's a scam. Thanks!

why does cert store contain *multiple* copies same Intermediate SSL Cert?

Hello,

Two questions I hope you all can help us with:

1. What are the circumstances under which a server would fail to provide the Intermediate to the browser? One can say "misconfigured server," but do others have experience with some typical cases where Firefox can't get the Intermediate from a server and figured out why. In researching this issue of "missing Intermediate" (not sending down the Chain or Intermediate). We think the problem is on the server side and we have asked the application developer will look into why his app isn't sending down the Intermediate. But with their development deadlines, they may not get to it soon. I thought some on this forum might have seen past examples or conditions under which Firefox was not given the Intermediate by the server. So this is a little general, but if you have past examples, I'd love to know.

2. From working on the above issue, we came up with a question that is the kind of the opposite: how does it come to pass that on some of our workstations the FireFox certificate store sometimes contains multiple copies of the below (and other) Intermediate Certs:

                                     "Entrust Certification Authority - L1K                     Software Security Device"

We'd like to understand the mechanism by which multiple (2-3) identical lines / copies of the L1K Intermediate SSL Cert end up in Certificate Manager. Why are there the duplicates? If I understand correctly, if a Software Security Device (Intermediate SSL Cert) is not in the Cert store, the server will provide the chain (or is it just the intermediate?) to FireFox and Firefox will install that Intermediate (since it already has the Root, which for this L1K intermediate cert is Entrust G2, and thus can trust L1K). On maybe 20-30% of the Firefox installs we checked, they have more than one line entry for L1K. They don't seem to be causing any problem, we are mainly curious to know the whys of the appearnce/installation of multiple copies of the same SSL Intermediate Cert.

For both we tested on a bunch of Windows 10 (some Win 7) workstations running mostly between FFox 56-60, with some very few on FFox 48 or older. The "not getting an Intermediate SSL cert" issue does not seem to depend upon the version of the Windows workstation or of FireFox, we think it is server side hence my request for the experiences of others where this happened to them, under what case/situations.

thank you,

Alain

I set up sync with 4 user profiles on one user account on my computer. Firefox 57, 54, ESR, and Waterfox. Because of the compatibility issues, I only sync passwords, history, and bookmarks.

Everything synced when I first set this up. But since then, nothing. How often does sync sync? Is there a manual way to trigger it?
