I had a system crash, probably with Firefox opened.

After restarting PC and starting Firefox, most of the addons I have had lost all of their settings and were reset to default - Tampermonkey lost all the scripts I had installed, uBlock lost all settings and rules, etc. Weirdly some extensions kept portions of their settings, like TreeTabs saved tree structure despite also getting reset to default.

Additionally Firefox also got its own settings reset to default, while the tabs from my session and bookmarks were saved.

Is there any way to recover addon and Firefox settings, is there any backup of them?

I keep getting "Warning: unresponsive add-on script" and can't find any way to stop it

Windows 7 Professional Firefox 64 bit stable, up to date

Its is running on a 10 year old slow computer, the add-on script is unresponsive because it is running on a slow computer.

I had a similar problem with "Warning: Unresponsive script" but was able to get rid of those annoying notices by setting dom.max_script_run_time to zero.

I do not want to stop the script, the add-on adds security. I just do not want to ever see one of these notices on that computer ever again. I have to deal with them dozens of times each day and only use the computer for a few hours. Each time it interrupts what I'm doing to take me to a different tab to slowly deal with the problem.

The problem isn't the add-on script being slow, its the computer being slow. And the fact that the warning gives me no way to disable it so I keep getting it time after time after time...

Thanks

Search for the addon on mozilla addons.

Locate UBlock Origin and click install. The popup is displayed to 'accept' permissions. Click accept and nothing happens. In the addons 'extensions' tab, the ublock entry row shows, but it never starts to download (and therefore never installs).

Tried to do it by saving the xpi to local and installing from there, but exactly same thing occurs.

Firefox 60.x ESR on Linux (slackware).

Is there anything else I might try please ?

Stop addons being disabled when PC has the wrong date

Hello, whenever I change the date on my PC ( which I do several times per week for experiments), all my addons get disabled, as the browser decides they are unsigned (as visible in the screenshot)

And there is no way to re-enable them - I have to search for them again, go to the download site, and download them again. Yet the browser knows perfectly well that the date is wrong - so it should not be very hard to stop him from disabling addons during a period of wrong date.

Furthermore - there should be an option to re-check the validity of (all) addons which were disabled with 1 click, without having to re-download them.

I try to install add-on for Firefox through Windows Registry entry. In this article: "https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/Distribution_options/Add-ons_in_the_enterprise" - described that I should specify the location of the xpi-file. For exemple, instal "uBlock Origin" by CMD script:

reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Firefox\Extensions /v uBlock0@raymondhill.net /d D:\Download\ublock_origin-1.18.6-an+fx.xpi

If I want instal add-on from URL? I try do this by CMD script:

reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Firefox\Extensions /v uBlock0@raymondhill.net /d https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/1709472/ublock_origin-1.18.6-an+fx.xpi

But, nothing work! Is it possible to install add-on by downloading xpi-file from URL (AMO domain)?

Some add-on information was lost after a crash

So a while ago I accidentally put my PC into hibernate mode, after waking it back up the PC proceeded to crash. (This has been a problem with my PC since I got it. Still don't know why it can't go into hibernate mode without it crashing but this is not the issue right now.)

Anyway after the crash, I log back in and everything for the most part is fine, except Firefox. I had firefox open when it crashed, so I expected it to be effected, but for some reason a lot of my add-on data just disappeared. For instance, a lot of tabs opened up as if I got the add-on for the first time, which can't be right. Stylish lost its webpage edits, Reddit Enhancement Suite's setting information got reset, the theme I was using wasn't active and I had to turn it back on, and the toolbar(not sure what you call it) had reset back to the default appearance with the flexible space and what not. I want to get back the firefox information before the crash. I would think firefox sync would fix this but it didn't. I'm very confused on why this happened.
