Firefox v.39 (Mac 10.10.4) has mysteriously disabled my Alert for gMail which has been in use for a long time. Settings window says “browser disabled alerts“ which I didn’t do, and there’s no apparent way to restore the app.

I installed the umatrix add-on, but it doesn't show in the top right with the rest of them. It is clearly installed, and it also shows in the sidebar, but I can not use it properly from there. I would like to know how i put the icon back to the top right corner, so I can access it from there. It has been there before, but it suddenly disappeared. I can't remember doing anything thats related with add-ons around the time it disappeared. so I have no clue what caused this.

Kind regards

All my extensions were randomly disabled even though they all worked fine two hours ago.

And I was only to re-enable three. This happened with NO changes to my browser or extensions; nothing was updated, and I didn't tweak any settings. One of the ones I can't enable is by the same creator as the ones I can (TrendMicro; others I can't re-enable include RealPlayer and Yahoo toolbar). I'm a bit concerned as it is a security measure I can't re-enable. While the one I'm most concerned is a Tumblr add-on/extension (XKit, The Extension Framework For Tumblr), because I don't want to install 500 new extensions to deal with one problem at a time, when I had a perfectly good extension that deals with all of them and already has my settings saved (including some important things archived). From what I've seen, the creator has to get the extension "signed" or whatever, which presents a problem as the last available xkit update I saw was from last year (2014). Is there ANYTHING that can be done to fix this???

The Reminderfox add-on is in my profile, (Users\AppData|Roaming) but it is not in my add-on or extentions list. I lost it during the day, while I haven't updated anything or closed Firefox. One minute the add-on was there, the next it was gone.

Just a thought. I had a Complete Theme that I really liked called Silvermel. With the latest updates it is no longer compatible with Firefox. I went to Complete Themes in Firefox Addons to see if I could find something else I liked and found that 95% of them are not compatible. It isn't as bad with my other addons as with Complete Themes but I still loose the use of 1 or 2 addons when Firefox is updated.

Firefox is always talking about how customizable they are and then their advances render it less so. Improving things to the point where you are dis-improving them it is counterproductive. Would you ask the Firefox developers not the change the things that addons need to be usable? If they can't do that then they shouldn't update it. Thank you!

Whenever I want to search something or type anything in Firefox it will automatically click what ever my cursor is over. This only happens when I press the A key though. I've tested it and it only happens on Firefox, and it doesn't matter what it is that the cursor is hovering over, as long as I press the A key it will register as a click. Is there a way to disable this as It's incredibly frustrating when I'm trying to search something and I end up "clicking" some random Youtube video or link.

I have been an avid user of firefox since it's inception, I enjoy it's accessability, user friendsliness and have never had a use for customer support (until now). All of my downloaded firefox themes work, switching between them is no problem. I can add and remove add-ons with no problems aswell, but the moment I close firefox and start a new session (sorry, let me back track a tad, I customize my toolbar on a regular bases, I like the functionality and it makes it more personal). Ever since the mid February update every time I close firefox and reopen it my my add-ons in the toolbar are invisible and unusable. There isn't even an information pop-up when hovering over where they should be (technically they are still there). I'm running Windows 10 (fully updated just like all my programs). I took a snap shot of this message to illistrate my point, both my Ad-Blocker and Flash Downloader add-ons appear ro be missing and yet I know they are next to the library button.

Why does rebooting between Windows and Linux disable all of my extensions? (ESR 38.x.x worked, ESR 45.2.0 doesn't)

Ever since installing Firefox 45.2.0ESR, rebooting between Windows and Linux and running Firefox with the same profile between them disables all of my extensions (in add-ons). In this previous ESR, this did not happen. How can I prevent this behavior? Specifically, I have a profile which I share between my partitions. It is hosted on the Windows partition. A symbolic link is created to it from my Linux /home partition. This setup worked perfectly with all previous ESR's. But now when I reboot between Firefox installs of the same ESR version, all of my extensions are disabled, and I must manually step through re-enabling each one of them.

(And no, I don't want to use any online synchronization services to work around this issue.)

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.
