Upon the last update (v.83), my favourite Flash golf game "World Golf Tour" ceased to work.

The makers of the game have already taken steps to move to a different platform on January 1st ... but the existing Flash version still works perfectly ... until YOU came along!

Your so-called "update" made it impossible to even load World Golf Tour's menu screen - I heard the music, but the graphics were frozen.

I'm no Sherlock - but this problem only occurred when Firefox updated.

It took me ages to downgrade back to v.82.3 - but WGT loaded perfectly when I did it.

Proving that it's YOUR fault! So don't give me this "most problems are caused by other peoples' software" stock answer crap.

I WILL upgrade to the latest version of Firefox on January 1st, not one second before.

Is there any way I can turn off the "Download Firefox Update Reminder" until then?

It's really annoying.

I was trying to switch between channels by changing the value in prefs.js

I guess some of the paths are not fully supported. Like from nightly into release it is downloading and restarting the browser but update fails and starts all over again leading to a vicious infinite loop.

I recently switched over to Firefox and am loving it. However, every time I either restart or turn off and on my computer, firefox "re-installs." It does not save my chosen theme, nor does it show my bookmarks. I have to re-log in to every website because my history is deleted. I don't save many passwords, but usually it remembers my log in to things like my email and drive which I need for work. It's become quite cumbersome because I don't want to leave my computer on or in sleep mode 24/7. Is there something I can do about this? I'm on an updated Mac laptop.

win RT8.1 (SURF2, 32 GB, 2 GIG RAM W/ 16 GB DISK OPEN) stops install of FF and Directs me to the win store for an approved app. I cannot find the way to get '''''''''''the install anyway''''''''''' option like in win 10 where I down loaded FF on this laptop. Need the pathway/steps in win RT8.1 to bypass the MS store dictate to complete download and install of FF.

Hi

I just did a fresh windows install and when I signed in to my firefox profile it sync the current status, the empty one, instead of downloading tabs and bookmarks from the previous session. I did make a copy of the profiles folder located in appdata before reinstalling but I haven't been able to use it so far. Are all my data lost?

After a reboot, clicked to open firefox. Message said it already open. Tried another computer reboot. Tried uninstall and was stopped by message saying firefox open and must be closed to uninstall. Downloaded both install packages and neither worked. The small package was stopped with a message, "Humm, ...did not work... try again...". the Big package just hung at about 90% saying "A little housekeeping".

Am baffled, and hope someone can help.

Thanks,

Bill BAne
