It appears that Firefox has blocked windows explorer. I use Vista business but want to upgrade to windows 7. I also get messages that say that I need to install Apple application support but cannot do this either. I have deleted I tunes as a temporary measure because I know this will be a necessary action before upgrading Windows. Thanks for any help.

This has been an ongoing problem for many years. It just doesn't work. Export bookmarks to HTML. Comes the time to import them, just doesn't work. Have loaded up Opera. That worked. Loaded up Edge. Yep, that worked as well. Firefox...not a chance.

Почему не приходят от вас письма на мэйл ру? Что делать в этом случае и возможно ли разблокировать эккаунт оперативно, чтобы я мог синхронизировать все данные на новом устройстве? Возможно ли поменять "вручную" адрес почты, если ваши письма не доходят на старую? или подтвердить по номеру телефона например?

Hi: I am trying to decide do I just totally give up on Firefox after all these years and move to Chrome or is there some logical path for addons planned/in process that I do not know about.

It is like Firefox Management Team/Committee team made this technical decision with little understanding on the impact to the developers that had put in hard yards for years, or users who had been using these addons. I am at a loss when I try to understand why would they jeopardise so much.

Since Firefox went to that "new firefox", sorry I dont know the technical lingo, most of the addons I use became unavailable. I have since written to each developer to ask, will they be upgrading their addon and the answer is NO. So basically Firefox is only useful to me if

  • I stay in the old version on Mac Sierra OSX (55.0.3).
  • For the new windows 10 brand new laptop I tried also to create using the new Firefox and it was very unsuccessful as there are no addons even close to what I was using.

For the Cookies controller there are some close but nothing as good as this addon in terms of how I used it -- manually removed cookies.

On my Mac Firefox 55.0.3, I have the following addons (all these have the LEGACY yellow highlight tag in the list)

1 Cookie Controller

2 Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar

3 Session Manager

4 New Add On Bar

5 Add Bookmarks Here

6 Change Bookmark Recent Folder List Length

7 Open Bookmarks in New Tab

8 Download Status Bar

9 AutoPin Tab

10 Close Tab Button

11 Tab Open/Close Control

12 and uBlock Origin I cannot update as it says on its webpage, with this technical change, it is not supported, so not upgrade it.

Any practical advice?

I have 2 computers, both running Win7 SP1 (32 bit).

Computer 1 has been running FF 56.0b12 for a long time.

I installed the same version on computer 2, but cannot install the "TabMixPlus" extension.

I tried to copy over the profile located in C:\users\Mark\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\672nu82s.default.

This did appear to place the extensions in the add-ons list, but the extension does not work.

Since these are identical Win7 versions, and also identical FF versions, how can I solve this issue?

I'd like to copy over FF entirely from computer 1 to computer 2 including all extensions and permissions so as to get TabMix Plus to work?

Thanks, Mark.

I run a computer on Windows XP. I have been hesitant to update my version of Firefox because of this problem. My last, fully functional, version of Firefox was version 42.0.x and I have just updated to version 52.9.0 (32-bit). if you need further information about my computer or anything else related to this issue please do not hesitate to ask.

My bookmarks menu drops down just fine, I have links in my Bookmarks Toolbar, and all links are very functional. I click on my Bookmarks menu and go to any link saved in my favorites then click the link nothing happens. The same thing goes for the links in my Bookmarks Toolbar. The only way I can get any links to work is to click and drag them into a new tab. This is not how a web browser should function. Can anyone please help me?

Accustomed to using 52.9.0 (64-bit) ESR with OSX El Capitan. Installed FF 64 on new computer running OSX Sierra. So massive differences, annoying.

This page says Javascript needs to be enabled to open the TV schedule: https://metv2.com/program-schedule/

The addon Javascript Toggle On and Off says its ENABLED

This page says its DISABLED: tools.addon.com/check-javascript.html#javascript-url

The new version of NoScript is much less functional. Can only toggle groups of types of scripts, I cannot select from individual scripts anymore. Sad. Why did they reduce its usefulness that way? Site is Temporarily Trusted

The FF "green padlock" doesn't indicate any blockable content This would be a convenient place from which to toggle Javascript !!!

I find a lot of sites that use text color from fairly light to medium gray, on white or light gray background which doesn't show up well. Some have so little contrast, it's like they're ashamed of the content.

The problem I expect from using a blanket statement in userContent.css, even if it mostly worked, is there will be some background colors that won't contrast well with black text; trading one problem for another.

If I try to set all backgrounds one color & all body or paragraph text to another, there will be other elements on pages that won't show up. One example - in Preferences / Colors, when "Override the colors specified by the page with your selections above - Always" is checked, it makes addon's UIs totally unreadable. Clearly, that won't work for pages with elements besides text. Elements on some sites just disappear. I'm not sure what type of sites today would work using override all colors with black & white or where any 2 fixed colors would work on most sites.

Is there a way to detect when sites use background / foreground colors with contrast below a certain value and only then change text to black? That would assume the background was a light color. If a dark background was detected, light text would be needed. It may be that sites have so many different types of elements / graphics, something like this would be impossible.

I am using the current version of Firefox and when using a particular website (Microsoft CRM Online) I get frequent popup dialogs . The issue I have is Firefox will ask me (in a dialog) if I want to "prevent this website from creating additional dialogs". I understand the reasoning behind this, but I don't want it. I would prefer that the dialogs behave in the same way they do in other browsers.

Can I disable this feature either at the browser

Is there a way to limit the version of Firefox ESR that will be received? For example, lock only the minors updates. Or hang a specific update.

I would like to receive updates normally through the browser, but I can not make them available at the same time that they are available to the public.

There is this setting in Google Chrome.
