I have to access a legacy, Agency-wide software application that uses Java in its interface operations. The previous Firefox esr version allowed the activation of Java for trusted sites. Firefox 60.2 esr appears to have done away with this option . . . and best of all it installed itself without my intervention or choice. Now, I am locked out of our timekeeping software.

I accidentally deleted all my saved passwords in Firefox while intending to delete only one password.

I have Firefox version 52, with Windows XP. All of the solutions I have found online so far only apply to later versions of Windows (7 and beyond). I understand that my logins.json file is the one which needs to be restored to its earlier condition, but I cannot find any way to do this in Windows XP.

Immediate help requested. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Firefox Version 63.0 (64-bit) Home build PC, 480GB SSD, 2 x 2TB HD's, 8GB Ram.

I have had problems with streaming Channel 4 TV UK for many years. I could only get it to work on Windows. Recently I have Dumped Window 10 - so slow - updates take all day. I now am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (using Linux since 2009)

Channel 4 say they Do Not support Linux ?

I have tried to install Adobe Flash Player, but does not seam to work or download. On Ch 4 web page I pressed Allow, but say that I should install Flash Player !

Please could anyone advice me what I can do, or what I have done wrong.

Regards, Richard.

Hey all.

As some of you may know from some older questions, I have two machines. One a Windows XP desktop running Firefox 28, as it was the last version I knew that supported Windows XP, and the other a Windows 10 Laptop that is on the current version of Firefox.

Sadly, my post is about the XP version of Firefox tonight. Please don't judge. The computer still runs, so I haven't seen a reason to get rid of it, and I split my time between the two machines.

I'll get right to the point. Up till tonight, Version 28 on Windows XP had worked perfectly with Youtube— Or at least as near to it as the old machine could get— as it typically played every video more or less with no issues via the HTML5 video player that Youtube supposedly uses. However tonight, I have been getting very hit or miss responses on youtube, as the HTML5 player does not always come up, and when it does not, I get an image of static with text saying that my browser is not recognizing any of the available formats. When I check youtube.com/html5, it is showing that it recognizes some of the formats— apparently only two so far, and HTML5 itself isn't even listed among them, though there is a checked box saying that the HTML5 player is used when possible— so I'm just wondering, what the hell happened here? As I said, Up till basically last night, everything worked more or less fine on Youtube, with there being only a handful of times the issue of a video format not being recognized came up. In fact Firefox 28 is still somehow pulling up the classic version of youtube, rather than the new version, which I have no explanation for.

Did Youtube stop supporting HTML5 in favor of a new video format, or is something else going on here?

If there is a later version of Firefox that still worked for Windows XP ( I think I remember someone suggesting that 43 would work, but half of the extensions no longer seem to exist for it that I use, including classic theme restorer— though I think someone at waterfox said they may have archived that extension, however I have no idea how to access or use archived extensions— but any port in a storm at this stage) that supports whatever Youtube is using, that would be welcome information, despite my attachment to version 28. Hell, if I could make sense out of how to set up multiple profiles for Firefox, I'd run the classic 28 and whatever later version might run with whatever Youtube is doing so I wouldn't have to give up my preferred version on this old machine. Again though, sometimes the HTML5 player works, and sometimes it doesn't. So I dunno what the issue is here and if there's a fix I can find for Firefox 28, as it is the last version I knew worked for the older machine.

Thankfully, this issue doesn't come up on the Windows 10 laptop, so this is not repeating itself there, Thankfully. But is there a way to fix this, or am I just stuck with considering Youtube a partial, if not complete loss on the XP machine? It's one of only three sites I even still use the browser for. The other two being fanfiction.net and wikipedia.org

And if there IS a later version of Firefox that still actually works with XP, does anyone have a basic 'here's how even an idiot can fix it so you can run two versions on the same machine' explanation of how to set that up? I am NOT a technical person, and going into excessive detail does me no favors. I just need simple, point by point instructions that are, in effect such that a three year old could read and understand them if there is a way to have two versions of the program running.

Though this does also make me wonder if I can install the browser in my second internal hard drive rather than the primary C drive and still have it work properly.

Anyway, sorry for the rambling. If anyone could help me address these issues, that would be much appreciated. :)

How do you get rid of all types of auto completion when typing in an address in the address bar?

The search bar setting is set to "Use the address bar for search and navigation", I don't want to use "Add search bar in toolbar", because I don't want to have the extra search field in the top part of the browser, and if I go to customize, and remove it, it just changes the setting back to "Use the address bar for search and navigation".

I've already disabled the default search engine: "Provide search suggestions", and Address Bar: "Browsing history", "Bookmarks", and "Open tabs" options.

I want to be able to type an address in the address bar, without having any kind of auto completion options, but right now when I try to type and address like google for example, it still shows two lines with visit and search options, and it says "search for google with:", then shows icons for a bunch of different search engines.

I used to use firefox but stopped using it a while ago when they made ridiculous changes to it, and I'd like to use it again, but I don't know how to disable the address bar auto completion settings completely. Is there a way to fix that? Thanks.

The more tabs I open, the narrower they are to fit in window, right? Right.

But it used to work the way that when I close multiple of them, they stayed the same size for a second or so which meant closing multiple of them in a row was much easier (just click in the same place multiple times), right?

Well, it used to (work that way) because it doesn't anymore. Tabs are resizing instantly which is annoying. Here's my question: is there a setting in about:config that got resetted or something or FF70 doesn't have this function anymore? Thanks!

I recently updated the newest Firefox version, at least I think so. I watched the Video about creating and accessing bookmarks. Before the latest version I created many folders and placed websites of many non-profit organizations and other arts resources. Now, when I click the star the follow occurs: Star turns blue and moves to clip board? icon. First option: View bookmark side bar; Second: Show All Bookmarks; Third: View Pocket List (I don't use Pocket); Forth: Bookmarks Toolbar; Fifth: Other Bookmarks; Sixth: Show all Bookmarks. These are fewer options than listed on the Firefox bookmarks video. When I click: Show all Bookmarks a grey and white empty box appears with the the top title Library. When I click Show All Bookmarks, nothing occurs. What's also odd is that when I bring up a website like nypl.org the star turns blue. But I can't find that bookmark, only listed, without a name, of 157

I have trouble accessing a certain app via the internet. When I point firefox to it there are many files downloaded and many MBytes. The app partially loads then hangs and does not do anything more. I have already spent a huge amount of time trying to troubleshoot and have ruled out the usual kind of trouble such as memory issues etc. I have followed many support articles on this mozilla website.

By looking at technical info and logs I see that firefox sends out many HTTP requests rapidly. Sends many out before receiving a response to one. I think what happens is there are so many responses coming rapidly from the servers that some get dropped in the local internet due to limits on the amount of traffic (congestion). My local internet is known to have limitations.

So I want to try throttling firefox, that is make it send out HTTP requests slowly or wait for a reply before sending the next request. How can I do that?

Again I want to emphasize I have already pursued many tips on this mozilla website so you don't need to suggest any of those.

Problem appeared 5-6 days ago.Runing windows 8.01,Kaspersky internet security(for several years had no problem with it). In Google Chrome and on i Phone,that issue does not exist (yet). Other web pages still have no souch problem(to be precise I'm not having that kind of problem :ONLY WITH gmail.com  ! )

What might be the cause , and how to solve it. Did Google change something,so that earlier versions of firefox do not work with gmail anymore (keeping the 56.0.2 because of Ant video downloader)

THANK YOU FOR THE ANSWER AND HELP IN ADVANCE !!!
