It works on most videos but there are several that won't download properly. Whenever I try it says "0 bytes" and the video won't play with Media Player, Realplayer, or any other program. Does anyone know how to fix this or another Firefox addon for me to try? I also tried downloading the videos with Realplayer's download too but that won't work either.

In the same menu bar adjacent to the favourites star an icon exists that opens with the name 'Supported sites' and it holdds all the history of sites visited (this is not the history folder). I have the site set not to remember history. Down to brass tacks; all I want to do is permantly get rid of this icon (Supported sites) and it's history. I have started Firefox in safe mode and the icon will not be visible. But, as soon as I re-open firefox yes youve guessed it the bloody icon and all it's contents is still their.

I am unable to install the yahoo toolbar and roboform. I used to have those before no problem. I have since got a message telling me that they are not supported on Firefox.

You should add a popup warning, if some addons are not compatible withi new version of firefox, prior to the update:

ie. (Popup Message) Firefox 57.0.2 update: Some of your add-ons are not compatible with the new version, continue with update? YES NO Manage Addons.

This is a serious issue for professional or personal use. Download queues, professional add-ons/readers etc.

This issue must be resolved in next version of Firefox, it has been extremely annoying for years now, as all automatic updating with no meaninfull user prompts.

In any case, an easy way to FALLBACK to previous version of Firefox wew be appreciated, as well.

Thank you in advance, Thank you for developing Mozilla Firefox.

According to my options dialog, Google is my default search engine. However, when I type any text in the address bar, the browser uses Yahoo to perform the search. Every answer I see tells me to go to "options" and change the default to Google, but Google is already set as the default.

I want the address bar default search enfine to be Google.

Help shows up-to-date with v62 but some sites won't work and I have to use Opera.

I tried to follow the update's instructions for Pocket (that I used to use) but somewhere there must be data saying I'm still using FireFox version 18.

Is there anyway to update the "18" to "62", please.

It works fine in chrome, opera, IE. If I google search and then click the google link it works.

It does work if I click the link in this question.

It does not work if I cut and paste or type it into the address bar.

It does not work if I make a new bookmark while on the page and then try using the new bookmark.

Chrome has, and I'm pretty sure FF used to have, the ability to show what folder a bookmark was in when right clicking it from bookmark search results in the bookmarks organizer.

It'd be great to add it back to the right-click menu there and also add it to a right-click menu off bookmark results from searching "* ..." in the awesome bar.
