Need help reverting to Firefox 108. I can install it no problem, but don't understand how to get all my settings back that 109 removed.

Firefox 109 is horrible and I am trying to revert to 108. I have the "Old Firefox Data" file, but have no idea how to get ALL that info back into 108. I am so very upset and frustrated right now! So much wasted time. I cannot believe Mozilla did this to us with no warning!!!!!!!! I have seen some articles on how to get the info back, but I don't really understand them. I am relatively computer-savvy, but I definitely do not understand how all this works. Some "Firefox for Dummies" at this point would be greatly appreciated. I am on a PC using Windows 10 professional 64-bit with automatic updates so it's current.

Hallo,

is it possible to automatically perform downloads in the library one after the other?

I have about 30 or 40 downloads in the list (videos), 2 to 5 GB in size, which of course take time to download. I have to start every single download individually and sit next to it.

Although I have a fast line (230 MBit per second), it still takes a few minutes for each file.

Is it possible that firefox or an addon is monitoring this list and after completing the first one downloads the next one and then gradually all the other starts?

Thanks

Roland

Firefox 52.0.2 autmatically updates to 60.x even though I have selected Don't Update

Hi all!

I am forced to use a specific version of Firefox to use a particular site. The version is 52.0.2 (yeah, I know - don't start). The site also needs a specific version of Java (JRE8 - Update 161). I am on Windows 11 (64 bit) and I also have a regular version of Firefox installed (fully updated to 109.0).

I have successfully installed (multiple times) and I am starting that version of Firefox with it's own shortcut which is configured as

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox Foo\firefox.exe" -p Foo -no-remote

In the first session, I go to Tools->Options-Advanced-Updates and set it to never download updates. If I now exit and start again, Firefox installs updates and upgrades to a new version namely 60.x.x

How can I prevent this behavior?

A few months ago when I updated to the latest version, as I always do, the bookmarks were not carried over. I restored to an earlier time to retrieve them and have been using an old version. Every time that I go to the program and when asked to update, I click "no." I am finding now that several websites will not accept Firefox. After 20 years of saving, I do not want to recreate, as I would have had to do at that time. Do I now upgrade to newest version and pray that my bookmarks are there?

How to extract only installable part after building Firefox from source?

After downloading about 10 GiB of source code and then building another 15 GiB, to install Firefox you need to use `./mach install` or more correctly: alias install='sudo sh -c "export MOZBUILD_STATE_PATH=$HOME/.mozbuild; ./mach install"'

But to re-install Nightly Firefox on the freshly installed (even the same) OS I will have to either save 25 GiB of source+build (+.mozbuild and other stuff) or to redo everything from scratch (needs at least 1h 20m). I'm having a hard time understanding all the abstractions and redirections from `./mach install` (and Makefile from ./obj-*/ which is automatically generated) to reconstruct a minimal set of things to install Firefox.

I need a bundle of files+dirs which is enough to install everything system-wide for Firefox to work properly. Maybe even simply run `./mach install` in this "minimal build installation" (if possible).

P.S. I'm using Debian based distro(s).

Tenable scans are showing multiple versions of Firefox on the same host. I was going to push updates to the devices, which i would assume would udpate the "Program Files" copy, but what about user's personal copies? how do i get them to pull updated copies from Program Files or from the internet, especially if they are older versions.

Example:

Path  : C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox

 Installed version : 106.0.1
 Path              : C:\Users\Davidl.wine\AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox
 Installed version : 89.0.1
