It's all in the question, all of my 3rd party add ons via xpi files, were disabled and I have no idea how to re-enable them. I'm running on the beta, so that might be why it happened, but something like this is really shit of them to do, because I'm careful for my add ons and know which ones are installed, and they're add ons not featured in their addon page. So I'm really mad and pissed off now, so much so that if there isnt a fix, I'm just switching over to chrome

after the new update I can't open a new tab to my homepage. I don't want all the tile crap or suggestions I just want my Google home page to open. It's now made my work process twice as long to do because of the stupid forcing me to have what the company wants me to use instead of having it the way I want it like I could before.

My firefox just updated and I have been inundated with this 'New Tab Controls' Experience which seems to have disabled my set custom home page for new tab opens. I still the page I want to open set in browser.newtab.url in about:config, but the "New Tab Controls" experience is overriding it, showing me a blank page with a toolbar on the right allowing me to choose either a blank page or showing my top sites.

Hello,

Let me begin by saying that I adore Firefox and have great respect for the Mozilla Team and its minions.

However, I am a little upset that three add-ons that I use regularly and have for some time suddenly could not be verified by Firefox and so were summarily disabled all in the name of security. To be specific, these add-ons are: Advanced SystemCare Surfing Protection, Avast Online Security, and LastPass. I have no idea what chaged overnight to cause these particular add-ons to now be perceived as a threat, but I surmise that whatever blacklist you all are using has suddenly included these add-ons.

But what has me REALLY incensed is the fact that a means to allow these add-ons in spite of whatever security risk they may pose is not made immediately available for those of us who are willing to accept the risk of using an add-on that hasn't met your entirely arbitrary signing policy.

I don't really expect anyone to take any action to solve this problem even though I think you ought to. I hope you will let us know when the pissing contest is over.

Last Pass. E-Web, and XMarks add-ons disabled on my PC using windows 10. My Mac uses Last Pass, E-Weband XMarks and it is still working. Why are these add ons disabled on the PC and not the MAC. I used these everyday and if Firefox will continue to disable these three very important add-ons I will use another browser.

Just refreshed and now have the latest "tab" format in place... but I don't like it!

I get the whole "tile" concept, but can I please turn back to opening a NewTab directly to about:home? I'm a shortcut junkie, and having to open a new tab, then select a tile is going to be a pain.

And before you ask, YES, I have previously made the about:config changes manually, and YES, I did verify that it still shows the value for newtab = about:home.

Help!

Firefox will not open. At all. Not in FF Safemode, not in PC Safemode, not after complete uninstall and reinstall.

I am a student IT for large group of PCs at a college office. Recently (yesterday) a user reported no being able to open Firefox. I followed all the online suggestions here and elsewhere. I created a new Firefox profile. (This is the only Firefox feature that appears to be working.) I attempted to start Firefox in Firefox's Safemode, did not open. I restarted the PC in Safemode and attempted to open - it did not. I uninstalled Firefox completely and reinstalled.

Firefox will not open at all. Even in administrator mode. I am unable to do any resolution that involves clicking the three bars in the top right or typing into the address bar. The only Firefox process or service that is running is the Maintenance Service.

Today, more users have reported the issue. I haven't added any new software of configurations to the PCs in question. Firefox is just suddenly not working.

IE9, 10, and 11 and Chrome are working. The PCs have network and internet connectivity. I ran a suite of Anti-virus software on them.

The PCs in question are all HPs in the Z2## line with 64bit Windows 7. One is 32bit.

Any suggestions or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

My LastPass add-on could not be verified by Fire Fox and no longer works. I trust this software and want to continue using it. None of the Fire Fox help articles tell me how to re-enable it without having to edit the computer's brain, which would be more dangerous than any malware.

I'm currently on Beta 41.0b1. If I "downgrade/install" v 40.0.2, will my the open tabs on each of my 3 sessions disappear? Will my favorites still exist?

Sudden loss of reliability. Firefox is slowing down my entire system, even though I haven't opened more tabs or done anything else on/with my PC. Also, whenever I close my Firefox tabs it results in a "crash report/crash recovery prompt".

With all the nasty stuff that's out there dead set on ruining computers, why on earth did they do this? Do I need to be wary of my previously beloved Firefox as well?
