Why does Firefox keep doing this? Why do they think they will impose their way of doing things and not lose a dwindling support base? Updated to v89, tabs had disappeared, briefly appeared at the bottom of the window (I had configured to be below the address... clearly, something FF developers don't like me having things my way)... Downgraded to v88.01... fortunately, I had run a back up to it this morning, so was able to restore the previous [profile with all my tabs, history etc....

Why doesn't FF understand, MOST people don't want to be futzing around with install, MOST don't like surprises, MOST don't like being forced into something they didn't even ask for, regardless of how cutsey FF developers their pride and joy looks...MOST people are happy to have updates for security purposes THAT DON'T MEAN THEY HAVE TO RE-LEARN WHERE EVERYTHING IS, MOST people just want to get on with their work with a fairly familiar environment... This update v89 just increased agitation and grrrrrrrrrrr factor to make me seriously ask: why am I even bothering with such a tool of a tool? NOT HAPPY... AT ALL!

After automatic update all my saved bookmarks is gone. All web page in istoric is gone - this is not ok

Dupa actualizarea automata am un program proaspat instalat, nu o actualizare - si nu mi se pare ok. Toate link-urile din bara de adrese au disparut si tot istoricul a fost sters - de ce?????? Aveam niste pagini salvate care acum le-am pierdut - parole care acum s-au dus si trebuie sa recuperez totul din aduceri aminte. Din start actualizarile nu ar trebui sa stearga ce aveai si sa instaleze un program "pe curat". Este a doua oara cand patesc asa ceva. Cred ca o sa renunt la browserul dvs.

translate with google translate: After the automatic update I have a freshly installed program, not an update - and I don't think it's ok. All links in the address bar have disappeared and all history has been deleted - why ?????? I had some saved pages that I now lost - passwords that are now gone and I have to recover everything from memories. From the start, the "updates" should not delete what you had and install a "clean" program. This is the second time I've suffered something like this. I think I will give up your browser.

Why does Firefox keep screwing up my computer? I converted to version 88, and this morning Firefox has changed things again!! It is 89.0, again, even though I said "do not upgrade without my permission". The colors of the tabs are white again this morning, but at least I can see which tabs are playing. And my "Show Side Bars" and "View History" icons are back. It appears the visual problems in the web pages that I use are fixed; I can see that I have "Liked" comments in Facebook, and I can see likes in Rumble. I am grateful for those things.

But I hate the white Tabs bar at the top of the screen. And in this mess I lost all my previously open tabs. How do I get my previously open tabs back?

Hi, I upgrade Firefox to 89.0.2 from the previous version. The installer "locked-up" during the installation process. I am using Win 7 on a Dell Inspiron 64-bit laptop (2017) with plenty of memory. Never had problems before. The installer locks and I have to stop it via Windows Task Manager (setup.exe *32). I have reloaded the "Firefox Setup 89.0.2.exe" file several times, reloaded the previous version... no avail. It locks up. I tried to start the Firefox even if not fully installed, using Firefox.exe It stated that it did not close properly and to "refresh", which I did, the program browser started after saying "success", but then stopped responding (screen locked-up) while showing me the usual Firefox screen (i.e. with all my previous opened tabs, bookmarks...) After having deleted the program manually from its location, reloading it several times - the same issues took place. Can someone help, me? Thank you, Ciao, L

Frequently after an upgrade my FF (91.0b7 (64-bit)) on Win 10 reverts to the previous version. I only notice it because I start getting prompts to upgrade.

Frankly, I'm pretty clueless and sick of Windoze but determined to not resort to Chrome or hEdge. ANY suggestions to help figure what's happening (and hopefully how to prevent it) will be greatly appreciated.

I am resigning with Firefox after an hiatus. I am trying to not use Windows (10) my LT.

Firefox seems to be in tandem with Windows. If any I would rather tandem with Google. But trying to get away from both (CONTROLLING MY DEVICES).

How can I set up Firefox to not use my Windows apps?

TY Stew.

cannot completely install firefox - either "regular" or ESR Version

I have a HP laptop 15-BA009DX with a Firefox problem. I noticed that the newest Firefox release takes one of my backed up bookmarks that I restore - causing the folders to "leak" the bookmarks out of the folders. The result is a list at the bottom of the bookmarks menu containing several hundred bookmarks. It seems to only happen when you restore a bookmark .json file. I Loaded the Extended Support Release (ESR) version on my laptop and discoveredf that it doesn't have this bookmark "leak" problem.

I tried to install the ESR version on my other (standby) laptop in place of the "regular" version to fix this bookmark folder "leaking" but the ESR version appears to not completely install. I can't go to any web page and I can't access the Tools > Options page. When I select the "Options" choice, it doesn't do anything. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall both the ESR version and the "regular" version several times with the same result. I frequently get an install error message similar to "VCRuntime140_1.dll not found - Reinstall can fix this".

I am familiar with computers but I'm not a techie. Installing this should be a no-brainer, but I am baffled why it won't correctly install and work.

Any Idea what is causing this problem? Thanks for your kind reply.
