At some time in the past I installed regular Firefox and updated throughout the years. But for the past maybe year or so, the updates have been Firefox ESR. I don't recall ever having installed the ESR version. Why am I only getting Firefox ESR updates?

I have to start from scratch each time I want to log in to Firefox. I am asked for user name and password, then I am taken to a screen that says "getting started with Firefox" as if I've not set it up already. How can I access Firefox without having to go through this process?

I turned on my computer today and when I went to speed dial 2, it wasn't working. Restarting Firefox didn't help. I checked my extensions and found that it had been automatically disabled. The challenge I'm facing is ... there were specific links that I 'need' that I cannot access. Is there a way to recover said data?

MacBook Pro, Mojave 10.14.3; Recently updated Firefox to 83.0, and now my fonts on other sites are messed up (particularly Yahoo mail; See screen shot). I've tried re-starting with add-ons disabled and it does fix the problem, but I need my add-ons enabled. I also tried a Firefox refresh, but still does not fix the problem. I've also tried checking and unchecking the box "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above," in Firefox preferences, but that doesn't help either. Hopefully someone has figured out how to fix this?

TIA - Beth

I recently installed Firefox on my new computer. I used Firefox on my previous desktop, and have an existing account. Every time I launch Firefox on my new computer, I get the "Let's Get Started" splash screen. I log on to my account, and I have to set up my screen with the bookmarks toolbar, etc. every single time I open the application. Why does it not remember me and retain these settings? On my old computer, I stayed logged on even when I quit the application. Help?

I'm writing this on the 6th of December in 2020 using Firefox 83 on MacOS 10.15.5 Catalina.

I think it would add a lot to the browsing experience if I was to add an image as the background of Firefox's new tab homepage. This has come up a few times on support.mozilla but they all appear to be either dated or neglect MacOS and only consider Windows or Linux. They all involve going to about:support and opening what people say is listed as the profile directory and creating a folder called chrome. Then creating a .css and pasting/writing certain code. There's a few more small steps and then you're supposed to restart Firefox and it's ostensibly there. Can somebody suggest a method that works in 2020 on MacOS Catalina with Firefox 83? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

This link use to show the image itself to allow me to do some customization and so forth. But lately it keeps saying connection not secure and images aren't showing. No matter what method I try, nothing works to get this link back to what it use to be. Someone help me fix this.

For the last couple of days I have been having trouble with my Garagesale ebay listings. The images will not download when I start a Garagesale listing. The problem is specific to Firefox, as the same listings display correctly on Safari, with all images in place. Is there a security or other preference that might stop the images loading from the Garagesale server? I also get an error message when trying to access some other pages on the garagesale website (see attached image). Any help or possible solutions would be very welcome. I've tried all the usual cache emptying, refresh Firefox, restarts, etc, without any luck.

Thanks in advance.

Firefox won't play any video, on any website at all. I get different error messages on different sites, such as: The video playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the video used features your browser did not support OR Sorry, we're having trouble with playing this video. I've tried following some of the advice in the forums here, so I cleared the cache and the cookies, I ensured DRM content is enabled, and I unchecked the 'Use hardware acceleration when possible' option under preferences. None of this has made any difference. I also restarted firefox and installed an adobe flash player add on. Still no success. Any advice?

Hi all. I have been looking for some time for an extension or method that will help me sort the extensions that end up in the Overflow Menu. It becomes impossible to find anything with them all shoved in there with no rhyme or reason, and I def do not want to have to put them in alpha order (or maintain them that way).
