I just uploaded the new beta version of Firefox that arrived today and stupidly replaced the old version with the beta in my applications folder. When I tried to open the new version I received an error message that the new version is not supported by my computer's architecture. I should have known better, as my computer is still operating with Mac OS 10.4.11, as it is a G5 Power PC G5. I have no idea which version of Firefox I was previously using and how to find it again on the Firefox website. Can anyone help -- please???

Thanks very much!

Every time I open Firefox, a javascript from IcelandSue.com tries to connect to the internet. I've refreshed Firefox, cleared the cache, used NoScript to block this script, but it always remains. I've found the site listed as a Data Miner and would like to delete it from where ever it has installed itself inside of Firefox. Thank you, jason

Hi, I just updated to Firefox Developer 83.0b4 and the two-finger scroll sensitivity has been drastically reduced with no clear way to reconfigure it. I've spent the past 30 mins tweaking scroll settings in `about:config` (restarting FF after each value change) to no avail. In fact, it doesn't even appear that enabling/disabling `general.smoothScroll` or `general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel` have any noticeable effect, let alone the many other options listed. Are there any pages that describe the myriad options in `about:config` so that I can take a more measured approach to troubleshooting this issue?

What changed? And why? Chrome did this same thing at v68 without ever providing any way to configure it and FF has been my main browser since. I'm just trying to understand how such a significant input change can happen overnight without any explanation or any way to fix it.

I set up two Windows accounts on my Windows 10 and synced the passwords and settings in only one account. To my surprise, when I login in the second account, every login and password was there without the master password. This means that any one using that account can see my password.

I think this is a really serious security hole and Firefox should fix it as soon as possible.

I Googled about stopping using Firefox beta and transition to release version but none of the pages I found in this forum talks about an error message about user profile that only gives me the option to Create a New Profile (therefore losing all my add-ons, cookies, settings and everything) or Exit.

I tried manually googling "download Firefox" and downloaded the release version and after installing it, I get the warning message above. This thread here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1224888 has a link to the rapid release version but I end up in the same warning message.

Since the beta will necessarily always be a newer version than a release version, how do I transition from beta to a release version but preserve all my settings, add-ons and everything if Firefox will tell me that it won't let me use my existing profile in an older version, the release version?

My motivation to leave the beta version is that Firefox started having a bug since 27-Oct-2020 in Google meetings where either a shared screen or the camera image of the person in a meeting appears very zoomed in in the top left corner so it doesn't show the rest of the image.

Hello: FF dev build 83.0b5 64bit, w10p. A new odd issue to me. Using ActBlue (political PAC) I sometimes use my regular credit card to make small political contribution. As of 28oct20, this FF stops completing the transaction. I hit the "donate" button, & nothing happens. I have seen a "processing" type msg from the vendor us. promptly - but again, the current page just sits there, the "processing"action & pg don't happen. On 28th eve, I checked my bank acct to see if somehow the donation had been made (I would see the deduction taken), and no, it hadn't. No prior nightly build type update had shown this behavior. I have no other FF on this w10 (no stable, nada anything else for FF). I have made no changes to extensions, plugins or otherwise. I had to go to stable chrome to complete the donation, and chrome did it right the 1st time. So, this is just an FYI, I don't know where else to post nor may I have the rights to post elsewhere. Tx.

I will never understand how this machine behaves and why the matters addressed always requires some kind of technical approach that always misses the very matter at hand.

This time an obviously necessary function disappeared. The "back"- function has to be presented as it was, since the pages visited does not always allow backing. When giving feedback, the "submit"- button did not work.

I am exposed to large amounts of text that makes no real sense, as if the internet preceeded the playing of a real musical instrument, or as if the standards for typewriters suddenly had become obsolete.

The information given is either requiring the understanding of principles never really mentioned, or "user friendly" in a manner that suposes that I have no idea on how a "power on- off"- button works and the like.

Never heard of a "technical retard"? That's me, and you!

The question[1], rather more a problem that I need help with. .

Is that one window of my browser, with all of my precious tabs will not show up anywhere but the taskbar.[2] I know that the windows have loaded, yet they remain stuck.[3] This I theorize is the doing of a single page --a single tab-- among the 30+ of other tabs.[4] This same thing has happened before, but very rarely. .

I was wondering if there was anyway to resolve this while still getting my very important tabs back? Thanks. .

[1] I already once before wrote this question out entirely, yet it has disappeared after I registered my email. . so once again, rewriting.

[2] I can still bring up new windows, and new tabs within those windows, however, the other window, with all of the other pages are stuck.

[3] Because it prompts me with a download, or plays some video from nowhere upon start up.

[4] Might not be the case, who knows. . This has happened before, before ever switching to beta.

While it may seem like a good idea to auto detect the OS/application/version (e.g., Mac/Firefox/9) and generate support content specific to the combination, there should be a option (link) on the page to look at other or all combinations.

I find it frustrating to have to use User Agent Switcher to get information for a different OS/application/version when helping folks on Mozillazine where I'm a moderator. Most of those needing help are on Win and I'm on a Mac so I initially get info for the Mac OS.
