I didn't download any updated Mozilla Firefox startup site. I click revert to previous and it changes but keeps changing back. I ddon't understand nor like the new updated site and don't wish to delete Firefox but I'm exasperated. Should I delete Firefox and try reloading in the former website?

I missed this crucial changeover to Accounts, so is the old Firefox Synch key still operational or can it be destroyed?

I've been a Firefox user for many, many years and got a big shock when I pressed the 'Synched tabs' button on the Open Tabs bar - and found this 'NO syncronised tabs... yet' message. So will the old information be carried forward? And... I now have a new laptop!

First, I have nothing against Firefox, its a great web browser, but there are two issues with Firefox which I cannot resolve, these two issues have caused me to switch to Google Chrome. That stated here are my two problem(s).

In Google Chrome as in Firefox you have the *Settings* or *Options* aspect to the particular web browser. In Chrome there is an *Advanced Setting* part where the user, me, can click two setting that make the web experience not just faster, but lets the web browser become less bogged down when loading web pages. In Chrome one can select - *Do not show any images* and *Do not allow any site to run JavaScript*. These two setting provide a smoother transition in web browsing. Chrome also permits the used to *grant permission* on these two setting per every web site he/she visits. I gives the user, me, greater control on what I *want to see* and be bothered with when visiting a web site.

I have looked everywhere on Firefox for these two setting as I can't stand being forced to view pictures which I may not want to see. I don't have any children under 18 in my house hold so pictures NSFW is not a problem, its a PERSONAL choice. These choices also are less junk in the browser cache. Certain web sites, such as financial institutions MUST have both setting set to *yes* and for me I do that per individual web site. But generally speaking I NEVER want images or JavaScript running unless I desire it. Once I am finished, I got into Chrome *Advanced Setting* and again restrict the web site I just visited, then clean the cache and browser history.

My question: Does Firefox have that ability, to restrict both images and JavaScript on their browser?

Thank you for your time, Jose H Naber

Firefox browser 50.1.0. I have the latest Flash Player version (24.0 r0). In Flash control panel (access via IE/Edge), I have set to not use Hardware acceleration. In Flash options (F/Fox), I have disabled Protected Mode. In F/Fox, I have disabled "Use hardware acceleration when available". I have an NVIDIA GTX 970 graphics card, using the latest drivers (376.33). I've uninstalled & re-installed the graphics drivers. Windows 10 (64-bit) Professional - new installation (only a couple of weeks old).

Yet... every time I attempt to access a site, any site, that uses Flash, the player crashes before displaying any video at all. When visiting the same sites in IE or Edge - all works fine. Any clues?
