Please oh please diminish the number of updates for firefox developer edition ....

we used to have an update every other month or even once and forever But now it seems firefox is nagging me over updates almost on every time I launch it...

I can understand security patches needd to be installed asap. I do feel however that most updates are little more than bugfixes most of them not even important for me...

please allow me to choose not install those "bugfixes" every single time... or to have it check less often...

I had Firefox but once it was replaced with the new version, it didn't work on my Macbook pro. I need to have Firefox on my old laptop, but its OS (10.11.6) will no longer update, and a new Firefox download won't take. When I go to the download site, it keeps downloading the latest version. How I download an earlier compatible version?

For the last week or two I have had an issue with Firefox closing my email (yahoo business mail) tab automatically, every time I download a file from an email.

After opening emial I click to download the file, i have the settings set to ask where I want it saved, and then either while I'm selecting the destination and labeling it, or right after the tab automatically closes. It happens both ways which suggests to me it's occurring after a specified amount of time, not based on completion of an action. And it's happening every time.

MacBook Pro Firefox 102.0.1

Any idea how to stop this?

From a Mozilla Support page, " Firefox lets you import login information from a .csv (##..##) file. This feature is available starting in Firefox Version 80." I have the .csv file for my logins and passwords thru the export function. I can not get the drop down menu where I can select the "import from a file..." per the instruction in the support example because I am running Version 79. Many attempts to update to the latest version stops at 79. My help page for version states that I have the latest update --v79. SO--- any suggestions as to were I can go to download version 80. I am trying to transfer my logins from laptop 1 to laptop 2 without going thru the laborious task of entering each login by hand.

Firefox is ready to go.

Your add-ons and customisations have been removed and your browser settings have been restored to their defaults. If this didn't fix your issue, learn more about what you can do. Restore all windows & tabs Restore only the ones you want

It did this all by itself without me asking it or clicking anything
