Why did Firefox Quantum stop supporting the Weather Channel website's hourly forecast pulldowns, while Edge still supports them?

When I'm on the US Weather Channel's website (I use the URL of "https://weather.com/weather/today/l/USMA0518:1:US" ) for the "Hourly" forecast pulldown menus for where I live in New England. When I click on the "Next 8 Hours" text at the bottom of the basic list while browsing with the latest version of Firefox Quantum (v.62, in 64-bit version) to view the next eight hours' worth of hourly forecasts, NOTHING happens to reveal the hourly forecast updates; while on the version of Microsoft Edge (currently dated for May 21, 2018) clicking on the "Next 8 Hours" actually reveals "the next 8 hours" of weather forecasts, like Firefox Quantum USED to.

I use the latest "v.1803" version of Windows 10 X64 for my operating system, and so far, where I'm someone who DOES need to check the Weather Channel for such forecasts as a "matter of routine"...should I simply drop Firefox Quantum 64-bit for MS Edge, or can the strictly 64-bit Waterfox browser be a better choice (AND still allow me to use that "Next 8 Hours" pulldown, as Edge still does)?

Thanks in advance for any help or advice!

I'm using a variant called Waterfox Portable, it was behaving just fine until I changed my GFX card, I can still use it but I had to enable my menu bar at which point the whole window paints just above the screen (about -50px), if I don't enable the menu bar the address bar gets cut off instead from being painted yet the whole GUI behaves as though it is painted as a result I have to click below what I want to get what I want. Is there anyone who knows how to potentially fix this?

Firefox self-updated to ESR 60 this morning, without warning me that I would lose most of my add-ons and configurations. I understand that FF 52 has a limited life, but this is not a good week for me to have to deal with this because I am on deadline. I need access to my add-ons that I had last night so I can finish my project.

I would add that I did indeed click on the "about this update" link, but it goes to a "not found" page.

None of the links on the Mozilla website to the old versions allow me to download ESR 52. Even the link that says "download older versions" only gives access to ESR 60.

How can I go back to what I had an hour ago?

MOZILLA: This is absolutely unacceptable. You need to warn your users about what a huge update this is before it is applied, and you need to give people a window and not just force it all of a sudden. I had heard this was coming, but I had no idea that this was it.

Chugging along just fine as usual, in the early part of today(using Firefox several times). With Firefox closed, I went to open it and it took ages to open fully. When it did open, the familiar toolbars were there, including my Bookmarks toolbar. The Bookmarks toolbar is showing the icons of sites that I have put there, and it is showing my self-created folders on it (containing various website shortcuts etc). The only difference is that the folders are grey instead of yellow. However, nothing is actually HAPPENING. No matter what I click on, I am not reaching any website whatsoever. I cannot actually go anywhere at all with Firefox. My internet connection is working just fine. I can open email software and I can open (and use) Internet Explorer. Why has my Firefox just stopped functioning on my Windows 7 PC? It is Firefox Quantum ESR 60.2.0esr. I am typing this support request on my Windows 10 laptop where Firefox Quantum 62.0 is working ok!

I know this question has already been asked on the Mozilla Support Forums, but it's always better for there to be multiple answers to questions about Firefox since there's two sides to every story. I still am very much looking forward to reinstalling Firefox Stable on my 15.6" full HD Dell Inspiron 7558 after I reset it and cleaned the drive a few days ago after numerous bug reports being sent to Mozilla and Microsoft about Firefox and Windows 10 build 17134, respectively. I'm also looking forward to the complete rollout of all of the major improvements to loading webpages in Firefox Stable, to be completed by Tuesday, January 29, 2019 when Firefox 65.0 Stable gets released to Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android. At that point in time, I'll be able to read and bookmark articles seamlessly and with much greater reliability than I do here today, September 5, 2018! Lastly, I'm very much looking forward to each and every one of the planned reliability improvements and new features coming in the Windows 10 October 2018 update which will be released next month. I always love Microsoft's concerted efforts to act upon the bug reports users worldwide send to Microsoft to make Windows better every second Tuesday of every month and when a new build of Windows 10 is released about once every six months! I'll comment on how Firefox Stable is working for me on my Dell Inspiron 7558 every four weeks beginning October 30. I'll also donate $5.00 to Mozilla every first and fifteenth of each month to ensure I always get timely updates to the bugs in Firefox Stable. Now more than ever, it's very important my experience with Firefox Stable, my much preferred web browser, is as seamless and reliable as it can be every day when I read all kinds of articles on the World Wide Web, especially about what there is to explore in the United States, Canada, and Mexico! My sister very much enjoyed Cancun after she became a registered nurse and I expect to have a substantially similar experience with her once I find a career that I very much enjoy working to help, not just support myself!

I know I threw a lot at you this morning. This long description of how I feel at 10:26 AM EDT is evidence that I'm very compassionate about the active development of Firefox. On top of a $5.00 donation every first and fifteenth of each month, I might become a beta tester of Firefox and report any performance issue, real or perceived, to Mozilla as soon as I take notice of any that may be present!

Hello. I am running Linux Mint 19 Tara, and have been running Firefox without incident up until today. Every time I try to launch Firefox, I am greeted with a dialog box: "Profile Missing: ! Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."

This pretty swiftly led me to the following help page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-run-firefox-when-profile-missing-inaccessible

Which recommended that I delete and re-create the profiles.ini file in ~/.mozilla/firefox, and it would be automatically re-created upon launch. The behavior does not change, error still occurs.

Here are some basic commands I ran through after this (tvaz is my username):

tvaz@tvaz-linux ~ $ firefox Error: Access was denied while trying to open files in your profile directory. tvaz@tvaz-linux ~ $ sudo firefox Running Firefox as root in a regular user's session is not supported. ($HOME is /home/tvaz which is owned by tvaz.) tvaz@tvaz-linux ~ $ firefox -safe-mode Error: Access was denied while trying to open files in your profile directory. tvaz@tvaz-linux ~ $ firefox -no-remote -safe-mode Error: Access was denied while trying to open files in your profile directory. tvaz@tvaz-linux ~ $ firefox -ProfileManager Error: Access was denied while trying to open files in your profile directory.

      1. !!! [Parent][RunMessage] Error: Channel closing: too late to send/recv, messages will be lost


tvaz@tvaz-linux ~ $ firefox -noremote -ProfileManager Error: Access was denied while trying to open files in your profile directory.

      1. !!! [Parent][RunMessage] Error: Channel closing: too late to send/recv, messages will be lost

tvaz@tvaz-linux ~ $

Each time that the "Error: Access was denied" message came up again, I want to note that I got the same dialog box again saying that the profile was missing.

At this point I tried making sure that the permissions were set correctly on my .mozilla directory with a chown, but the permissions appeared to be set correctly to my user. I tried deleting the .mozilla directory, removing and reinstalling the firefox package, and doing a full purge as detailed in the first answer on this question: https://askubuntu.com/questions/16758/removing-firefox-in-ubuntu-with-all-add-ons-like-it-never-existed

Upon reinstall the issue continues to persist. I am typing this from Chrome. Any ideas?

Thanks, tvaz

Hi all,

I tried everything but nothing seems to work. Yesterday when I opened my computer all bookmarks and history were gone.

      • I received this msg "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." ***

Hence I tried with all of the following options and nothing has worked yet.

-I tried the "places.sqlite" file solution multiple times (renaming, deleting, etc.). Did not work. -I tried refreshing Firefox solution (completely new profile). Did not work. -I tried deleting & reinstalling Firefox. Did not work. -I also try restoring bookmarks from library and a new error message shows: "Unable to process the backup file." -I tried to export my back-up HTML bookmarks that I saved from 3 months ago. Guess what? Did not work. -I tried to get the bookmarks from other browser (chrome) and it did not work either.

Can any of you help me recovering the bookmarks please? Thanks in advance.

Where can I download Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR 52) for Windows in order to continue using the Session Manager extension? It's extremely important and vital that I am able to restore my historical sessions and also save multiple sessions going forward.

When I try to download it, I can see it will be 60 version instead.

Unfortunately I mistakenly updated my ESR 52 version today without realizing I'd lose that extension. This is very frustrating, so to alleviate the issue, I'd just like to have the older version and stick with it. Thank you.

This happens on only 1 of my Win 7 machines. It occurs with both a USB kbd and a wireless kbd. Only CTRL held down continuously reduces the window Zoom. No other key needs to be pressed. Thus, can't use CTRL-+ to restore zoom, though I can click in address bar or use Zoom in the hamburger menu. Another thing that happens is when a Print box gets to the point where it displays the printer name, it cycles rapidly through the list of printers, and it is impossible to change back to any other than the last on the list. It's behaving as if some key were chronically on, but it is the same with the two different kbds. Things work fine in Microsoft applications. Just upgraded today to 62.0. Tried re-loading the installer and doing a fresh install, as well as trying the Refresh suggested in Troubleshooting, but neither of these produced any change. It's as if some kind of crazy kbd shortcut was installed without my knowing it, but I can't find anything that seems that it would behave this way. Sorry, but there's no screen shot that can show this thing. It's possible that I hit some kind of 3-key rollover thing that changed this behavior, but I have no idea what this would be, much less how to fix it.
