Where can I download Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR 52) for Windows in order to continue using the Session Manager extension? It's extremely important and vital that I am able to restore my historical sessions and also save multiple sessions going forward.

When I try to download it, I can see it will be 60 version instead.

Unfortunately I mistakenly updated my ESR 52 version today without realizing I'd lose that extension. This is very frustrating, so to alleviate the issue, I'd just like to have the older version and stick with it. Thank you.

Using Firefox Video Downloadhelper; can I simply Right Click the video and 'Save Link As...', in order to navigate the video to a folder of my own choosing? I do not like the video going into a specially secreted folder videohelper sees fit to put it in. I do not know why they started to do it this way(?)

In my capacity as the world's #1 computer dummy, it seemed to me that my above question would be self explanatory but I'll try to elaborate further: I received a pop-up message on my screen that an update was available for Adobe Reader so I opened the Firefox add-on page where I clicked on the the reader update button. While that update was in process I noticed that an update was also available for an extension entitled "open about:permissions" and having never noticed or encountered this item previously, I clicked on the link to open the related home page as I most always do in such cases in order to increase my knowledge (which I admit is pretty limited) and found the page to be written in Polish or some other eastern european language which stopped me short. I then looked on my menu bar for the the translate icon which used to be there but had disappeared somewhere along the line which again stopped me short. To avoid clicking my way down another dead end road, I did what I thought was the obvious thing and posted the above question. I'd like to get some information about what that extension is used for and either keep it updated or else delete it if I have no use for it since this computer is already slow enough without loading it with useless junk. I'd also like to reinstall a translate program if you can recommend a good one that won't uninstall itself when I'm not looking. If I remember correctly, the one I used to have installed just sat there quietly keeping an eye on the incoming data and automatically translated into English anything incoming in a foreign language.

Thanks Much to anyone who feels like helping

Every few days I suddenly start seeing all the ads that should be blocked, so I check the add on manager and find they've been disabled!! Sometimes it even completely un-installs them! I asked about this before and was told to remove the entries in the configuration. This didn't work.... all it did was cause me to have to re-configure FF from the start. I continue to have the problem.

Using Firefox Portable (call it ONE), just updated to 74. T T blinks about every 2 seconds, and the groups are not shown. Tree Style Tabs works okay, but there is no toolbar or groups on T S T. I uninstalled T T and re-installed, no change. A firefox update and a windows 10 update happened just before I noticed this, don't know if they are related.

Downloaded another portable installation file (call it it TWO), and added T T. No Blinking, and toolbar and groups are there. Any ideas on how I can make it work in ONE? All help appreciated. Thanks!

I installed addons (e.g. adblock lite, ad killer) and when I shutdown Windows and start it again, the addons disappeared in Firefox. I'm using Firefox 40.0.3 non of addons will stay. I restored Firefox to its original state, installed everything again, also did the Malware scan as suggested on a post and the problem stays. So every time I start Firefox, have to install the add ons which is a bit hectic.


Please help me with some solution.

I am an it admin and want to install an extension globally, but placing the .xpi file in C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\browser\extensions\ or C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\plugins and restarting the browser does not prompt to install the plugin. I noticed that the cli tags have been depreciated so i did not give that a shot. The computers are windows 7 64 bit and firefox version is 35.

I noticed that recently, several of my machines (all logged into the same FF account) are experiencing pretty extreme performance penalties, and when on battery, the battery drains very quickly. Within the Windows Task Manager, I see that FF is often taking up 50%+ CPU even though I'm using fewer tabs than usual. Within `about:performance`, I see that Multi-Account Containers is the resource hog.

On another machine where I am not logged in, FF performance is pretty good. On the affected machines, Edge runs very fast with low CPU/memory use, so there's definitely an issue with FF on these machines.

About:config shows that extensions.experiments.enabled=false, and the Containers plugin hasn't been updated in 2.5 months.

I would prefer to not uninstall containers since they're so useful. I could clobber and reinstall them for testing, but is there a known issue or a quick fix for this?

I recently input "Firefox restart" as an add-on which added this option to my Firefox drop-down file menu. However when I select it, nothing happens. Further, when I added restart to my add-ons, the restart button did not appear. However, I found it under Firefox "Customize" and dragged it to my tool bar. But it also doesn't work. How can I activate this tool?

recently ever since upgrading to Firefox Quantum i have noticed a huge RAM issue and after looming around forums for many months gathering different viewpoints on this problem i feel like the issue is most likely being caused by the new addon handling protocols, once you disable every single addon you will notice firefox uses about 80% less ram, the problem isnt that i have too many addons even with a single addon enabled the RAM usage dramatically increases i personally only use an adblocker and google translator very lightweight addons for any other version of firefox until it hits Quantum, and no i dont use 100 tabs in a single session... i normally use like 2-3 tabs and have only about 8 tabs only max, but if that doesn't convince you at mozilla that Quantum has horrible addon handling take this into your figures Quantum without addons idles on a fresh restart at about 400mb RAM usage but once you enable an addon that number jumps up to about 500-600mb and every addon enabled after that compounds the usage issue

this wasn't a problem with firefox until quantum was introduced, and from what i hear about the firefox quantum the addon handling was changed to disallow addons access to specific browser system files that some addons were using that caused firefox to crash,

feel free to correct me if i'm wrong but “Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” iv eliminated all the other probable causes and the changes to the addon handling is all that remains
