Why have you reenable that bad sites can spam infinite amount of dialogs leaving the user the only option to close FF from the task manager including all the tabs? You had this fixed for years and now it's not working any more. Why even use OS dialogs in the tabs. Layers of stupidity. And you know about redirects? You can't count per url or domain. And it doesn't matter how you count. It's completly flawed. Fix this. This it really annoying.

I want to thank you for your support of the little guy for all of this time. I used Firefox exclusively right up til the minute I found I have to upgrade my OS in order to use your browsers. I am running an older mac because that is all I can afford. It will not upgrade to any of your products, so unless you would like to purchase a brand new iMac for to use in my dog sitting business, (my only means of income) this looks like the end of a long and lovely relationship.

NOTE: This forum is quite bogus as it doesn't allow me to register just to reply to existing threads. So now you get yet another question for this topic that you're dodging all time, mozilla. Why are you behaving LAME like the rest of the internet? Now the actual issue. I am using Firefox 52 ESR due to the horrible npapi plugin for java. I am completely aware of all the security issues and so are my users. We are waiting for the developers to use something else than java. I run a Linux environment and I cannot run either Explorer or Safari. Recently Firefox ESR 52 started updating for no reason, even with updater disabled.

I resolved by removing the updater binary and the updater.ini files in the Firefox ESR distribution. At least it seems it's not doing it automatically anymore. We will see how it works, since developers are behaving like apple developers in this forum, instead of disclosing technology they hide it. That S U C K S! Regards, bjaast (Florido Paganelli)

After the last couple of updates, Firefox now gets stuck when I try to watch a video withing an article on the nytimes.com web site; I just get a little arrow going around in an endless circle. In the past, videos would play o.k.

So in order to view a video, I must copy and paste the link into a Chrome browser, where the video plays immediately.

When I asked the NYTimes web support tech about it, he replied, "Certain browsers have issues supporting the NYT. We recommend using Google Chrome to view the NYT content if possible."

Why does Chrome play videos perfectly and Firefox not at all on this important site?

I have no problems with Firefox playing videos at other sites.

Here's an example page. No show with Firefox, o.k. with Chrome.

I have both Firefox developer edition and the standard firefox on my system. Never had an issue with this in the past. Re-synced the developer edition. It wiped the entire current profile from the standard version with only making a backup for the developer which had nothing on it.

Brilliant work there. They are two different browsers not sharing the same space they shouldn't effect one another in that manor. If they do you should at least back both of their data up not just one. If the person who wrote this garbage worked for my company he would be fired instantly.

I'll also need to warn the rest of my friends in the development community of this. Guess I'm back to chrome. Can't risk this type of garbage.

...boatload of time-wasting "solution" to fix problems with YOUR software. I run companies and do not have time to waste fixing problems you created. Give me a one-button solution that makes Firefox perform as it should, instead of like a latter-day Titanic, and maybe I'll return to it. But for now, I'm done with Firefox and will NOT recommend it to any of my over 400,000 weekly readers... (I write). Your long list of "solutions" was arrogant and puerile at the same time...

It started with the mozilla team sneaking in google safebrowsing a malware google service that is slowing down our browsers then they added telemetry and a feature called geo wifi now they are removing the ability that makes firefox unique aka the extensions support with project quantum . They are losing userbase and are still releasing this incomplete software . Is Greed that good? accepting google money and turn firefox into a pile of garbage? remember the old days http://toastytech.com/evil/ieisevilstory.html microsoft did it by locking windows to IE now google is doing it with firefox steadily bloating it down by giving the mozilla team their insane addons that go to about:config and leave a memory footprint in the already chynky codebase . Why is greed that important were the mozilla devs bankrubt or what?

Version: 62.0.2 (64-bit)

Drag and drop will not work in Firefox but works in all other browsers I have installed. Tried in safe mode but it still won't work. This is getting ridiculous now as there are so many things that you can't now do in Firefox that it's becoming useless ... you HAVE to give users some room to set their own restrictions otherwise the paranoia will turn the browser into a worthless piece of junk

Firefox hangs when I open a new tab or new webpage. It's really annoying!

Everytime I do the automatic updates this shit happens. I used to go to one of the articles where it gave me instructions on how to reset my preferences, but that thread has since been modified, it now says to delete my pref.js, but that doesn't fix the issue anymore.

So i'm resorting to actually making a god damn account and asking why this shit keeps happening. I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed aswell, but it saved some of my data which I kinda need (bookmarks). That doesn't help.

I know that resetting my preferences back to default every update used to fix it, but I forget how now. Thanks...

Can someone just tell me how to fix it so I can update without having to do all this shit again.

I have only one extension and that is adblockerplus. Not likely the cause as it does this aswell without.

Why firefox force updates itself without the consent of the user from version 42 to 62. It has been a long time between 42 and 62. Yet, firefox is so clumsy not to ask the user of updates. A user cannot keep track of his changes for 2.5 years. In this case firefox should have the courtesy to ask the customer to ins tall updates but it does not. Slyness. Including google.
