Since updating Firefox to 78.01 (I haven't updated recently so have skipped a few versions) a basic HTML5 website no longer works, the page based on a Uniflip brouchre doesn't load correctly http://www.tmlcnc.com I have tried safe mode, disabling addons, updating addons etc, but no difference at all.

Website works fine in IE 11.09600

Not had this sort of problem before, websites normally work in FireFox but not IE !

Any ideas ?

Obtaining the full Firefox download from https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ has worked through versions 78.0.1. It is not showing version 78.0.2, which is now available (it still only downloads 78.0.1). The full download from this web site through version 78.0.1 has updated Firefox *AND* the Mozilla Maintenance Service. Downloading the 78.0.2 update via the browser only updates the browser, but not the Mozilla maintenance service. Does it matter anymore? Will this be fixed, perhaps via the migration to Firefox accounts? Maybe this service is no longer required for more recent versions of Firefox?

Up to now I have used the URL https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ to download and test new versions of Firefox on various machines. It is somewhat troubling that this option does not appear to be working. Does anyone know if this is a temporary hiccup or a permanent change?

This may be a question for Mozilla people to answer.

Thanks

Ever since the end of February Firefox has had a habit of crashing on me at random, usually just a tab or so but there's been times where the whole browser just ups and crashes. I am using Firefox 73.0.1 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Professional computer.

1. This mainly occurs when viewing a video (mostly Youtube), scrolling down on pages, or opening or switching to a new tab.

2. Beforehand if there were issues it would take a few seconds to load the tab, now it just instantly crashes.

3. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing, clearing everything, turning off add-ons, and changing options and nothing has worked. At best, I've stopped it from crashing on launch and disabling add-ons.

4. This issue does not happen on other browsers, nor has my computer shown any unusual behavior.

5. It did not start immediately with the new update, which I got the 20th. It started occurring a week or so after.

toolbarbutton[id*="8883111b-4bc8-4a99-b37f-5672f6cf9834"]

Controls an icon added to the toolbar.

What's the syntax for controlling an icon added to the context-menu by an extension?

Example: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/simple-search-google-for/

(It does not have an ID in manifest.json but *I can add it*).

Thank you.

Have Win 7 Pro, using FF 78.0.2. Searches and page displays are normal until I changed Visited Links color. After doing so, search results and other pages show each item in separate boxes. I can't get rid of the boxes unless I do a Refresh of FF. Then I get normal page displays., but I lose change to visited link color (as expected). I tried using Visitedlinkenabler – by Ulf3000 but got the same results. Any ideas on how to change visited link color without getting the boxes? I tried the add-on

Desperately needed help please.

Just upgraded to latest version of Firefox v 78.0.2 (64 bit) and I've lost all my Bookmarks!

All I can find in Bookmarks are the pages I seem to have looked at in this version of Firefox and nothing else. Work my way through various suggestions in the Help section but I still can't find my Bookmarks, I hate to say this but it looks like I've overwritten th bookmarksfile and somehow deleted everything, but I know I didn't consciously do this.

I'd be eternally grateful if anybody could help me with this problem please.

(Troubleshooting information doesn't seem to have worked.)

Thanks in advance.

Gary
