Have been using a script (.uc.js) in my profile/chrome folder to enable new-tab homepages via local files. After updating firefox ( 68.0b6, but I believe it appeared on b5) this functionality is gone. Instead it simply loads about:blank, seemingly showing that the script is not running at all.

Edit: upon further searching this seems to be to a change in Firefox 68 as a whole. Is there absolutely any way to regain this functionality?

Add ons are installed but do not show an icon or work

I have 2 add ons installed-adblock plus and Roboform. Both show in add ons and show no error. I can disable or remove them. I can re-download and add them without error. … (read more)

I have 2 add ons installed-adblock plus and Roboform. Both show in add ons and show no error. I can disable or remove them. I can re-download and add them without error. But-neither show the icon on top, nor do they work. This does not appear to be the issue that occurred on 4 May. I'm stumped. When I check browser integration in Roboform, there are none listed, meaning that Roboform has not been integrated with FF, but add ons in FF show that it is and it is enabled. Nothing to check on add block plus, but there is no icon, so it is not doing anything. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using Firefox Developer Edition. I love Firefox. But when I change some CSS property colors on developer tools, it does not work instantly. For example, if I choose background-color it takes a little bit of time to show on web page. I'm front-end developer and sometimes I need to test different colors on my screens.

since v67 firefox uses separate profiles for stable, beta and nightly builds. that's a huge step in the right direction. running versions side-by-side was mentioned in a nightly blog post: https://blog.nightly.mozilla.org/2019/01/14/moving-to-a-profile-per-install-architecture/ KB-document: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/dedicated-profiles-firefox-installation

But how would I run stable and beta side-by-side?

Problems I am facing:

- both stable and beta released versions are called "Firefox.app" on macOS. So I can't have both in the programs folder

- If I rename Firefox.app (beta) to Firefox_beta.app macOS complains that signatures for that app are invalid (which is expected, so that's not a solution)

It would be awesome to run those versions in parallel. But how would that be done?

I have used 1Password/Firefox for years. With this version of Firefox, I cannot add its extension the normal way even though 1PW shows in add-ons and the icon is in the menu bar. When 1PW is invoked, I get a window opening and a message asking me to add 1PW extension to Firefox. I select Firefox but the Firefox accept dialog never appears. I am using Firefox V 68 beta 10. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Some time ago, the submissions from Firefox Feedback (the happy/sad faces) were visible at input.mozilla.org. It was interesting and useful to get a feel of whether one's issue was something isolated or common. Where did that dashboard go? ... and why? And, is our feedback still used for something, or does it go to some server that stopped working long ago?

I have several desktop shortcuts to various frequently used websites. I don't know why more than 3 of the desktop icons keep coming up with the Firefox icon instead of the website's icon; i.e. Yahoo has a purple icon with a large letter Y. Firefox takes over and gives me a Firefox icon of a foxtail. This gets confusing when so many of my desktop icons look the same.

Before these changes, when I opened Firefox, I could pull down a menu and see my bookmarks. I can't now and I can't figure out what to do from looking at the articles. I loved having my bookmarks like that and I don't know where they are. Or how to get them back. I use an iMac OS X 10.11.6

Please help! I'd prefer to remain with Firefox but not if I can't make it work.
