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.

In C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles there is one profile (qanl58lx.default) and my extensions is in the profile folder, but in Firefox options/extensions there are none. This has been going on for some time, but suddently 2 days ago a window for every extension showed up and asked for updating, which was done, and now extensions were shown inOptions/extensoins. But today they are all gone again. I have scanned for malware and there are none.

Whats wrong?

I am getting apparently random redirects to mostly r.svrtrack.com, there has been one other.

I checked my addons and installed programs and can't find anything unexpected.

I have scanned with Malwarebytes and Windows Security and they can't find anything.

I haven't captured a screenshot, will do so next time it happens.

Pls halp, Tim

Firefox says at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-update-add-ons, "Check for Updates: Allows you to check for any updates to your add-ons manually. If there is an update available, you have the option to choose to update it now or later." I don't see that option. I can install all updates now or not. How can I install selectively? And (since Firefox does not seem to reveal the versions of the add-ons I'm using), how can I be sure whether a particular add-on I'm using is already up-to-date?

Hello,

I have a new question. Addons, themes and personas, how to bring them permanently in Firefox? Firefox does not have to connect to the site.

Note that I'm not talking about updates. Before Personas were definitely in Firefox, even if not connected to the Internet, you could change them.

Thank you.

All of my add-ons are disabled each bootup or wake it from sleep and start of Firefox session. Once I decide an add-on is desired, I want it to default to be enabled rather than disabled on statup. I've done my best to set preferences to allow my add-ons by default, but either I'm ignorant of how to do it, or it is not obvious

Example add-ons: 1Password; Adobe Acrobat Create PDF; Disconnect; NoScript: Open With Photoshop; Privacy Badger; Self-Destructing Cookies

I've been a very satisfied Firefox user for years but since about ver. 41 (i'm on v. 41.0.2 now) Firefox has become too inconvenient

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.

Realized recently that all icons from background apps I'm running, like: Privacy Badger, Lightbeam and uBlock Origin, among others, have disappeared completely from my Firefox top toolbar - or, a Firefox top toolbar.

For instance, I have recently fired up a VPN service. I wanted to fire off Lightbeam to see how/if the VPN is working, but the Lightbeam icon is gone, as is the Privacy Badger icon, and the uBlock Origin icon, among others.

As far as I can tell, some, or all, of these installed apps, 'seem' to be still installed and actively running in background mode.

I 'think' uBlock Origin, for example, dynamically blocked a couple of nasty tabs recently.

But I can't get any info on/from/regarding these apps (or some of them, perhaps, at least). I don't even know where these apps are stored and/or whether or not they are still installed and running, although I 'think' they are.

Recent Firefox upgrades have fired up Pocket, which seems/seemed interesting. However, is it possible, perhaps, that Firefox upgrades and/or instantiation of Pocket caused these apps [or at least, the icons for these apps, that appeared to be the equivalent of shortcuts], to have disappeared?!

I hate it when stuff like this changes/happens. Usually, with Microsoft and Windows, here and there, seems like you need to empathize with the OS from the ground up.

Every once in a while - less so, for a while now - it seemed like I would sneeze or wave my hands and I'd have, I dunno, a sidebar menu, for instance where one either didn't exist before or was a horizontal toolbar.

Arrggh...

Have checked most of the postings for: how to customize, add/modify this or that toolbar and several other options, but am totally at sea, as to what might have changed [and when and how] to cause these apps, and the valuable info that they and their icons provide, to disappear.

Help!

Thanks and best,

Dan

http://localhost & https://localhost both have a 60sec delay before loading. This is not a problem on Chrome -or- Safari. I believe this is an issue with Firefox & Firefox Dev Ed. trying to use IP6 not IP4. I believe there is an advanced setting that fixes this annoying issue. Firefox 63 & Firefox Dev Ed. 63 OSX 10.13.6. I've searched this support site to no avail. Please help. This makes FF useless for development for me.

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(?)

Firefox for 63.0.3 (64-bit) for Linux Mint 1.0

Where are extension permissions set?

Bookmark tabs in TreeStyleTabs has error popup, it needs permission to create bookmarks.

The preferences search didn't help... Tree Style Tabs has container permission, nothing about bookmarks, no add button there... no link to anything... just nada.

I also have 'Bookmark Tree for Tree Style Tab' which also has no info about these permissions.

The solution is going to probably be... 1) Another settings page that wasn't included in the search? 2) Firefox updates broke the extension, so... wait?
