My download library window used to display files well over a year old, everything I have saved since the last time I deleted all browser history. Recently, everything older than six months was no longer displayed. The files are still there, I just have to search for them. Now it no longer shows anything older than 4 months. "Show all history" does not work. Is there a way to restore that list?

You have until Saturday morning, January 19 to get this fixed. There are to many other browsing options to be putting up with this.

In the 'new and improved' release of FF, when I open a new tab, instead of getting my home page which is which is the obvious starting point for ANY new tab, I get some god awful splash page with all kinds of thumbnails of various pages I have visited. This is 100% totally useless to me. How do I get this fixed so a new tab works the way it is supposed to? I tried installing a plug in but it disabled itself immediately and had an orange bar nest to it in the add on list.

I REALLY do appreciate the hard work that developers put into projects like this. I just wish they would quit fixing things that are not broken just to be able to say they have a 'new nd improved' release!

In FF version 43 you took the drop down arrow (right next to the refresh arrow) and made it invisible. The only way to make it appear is to hover your mouse in the URL box and the only way to make it work it to hover over it directly.

Can we just have the arrow visible all the time. I don't like having to hunt for it.

Also if someone is using FF for the first time, they'll never even know the arrow is there.

Why is it hidden now (kind of stupid)?

Hey, I have en-GB version of Firefox installed, but when I look at Language Settings, there's English (United States) under the default UK one. It seems like the US one can't be removed since the remove button is greyed out for it. I specifically installed the en-GB version of Firefox, just to be clear. Why is Mozilla forcing US English like this?

Thank you.

Release 43.0.1 turned my search bar into a little mess with a bunch of buttons instead of a dropdown. And I have to re-select my search engine every time.

This happened before, and I reset it to the functional old version with a boolean in the about:config about "one-off search buttons".

That doesn't work anymore.

I'm not using the browser with this search function. What's the setting to revert it?

I just typed about.config into the address bar, and it said it couldn't be found. Where has it gone?

I am visually impaired and can't use another browser such as IE or Chrome because the former is not secure, and the latter isn't accessible to people with low vision.

When setting up colours in Firefox I can't use the browser based preferences, because my colours wouldn't accessible until I've changed them. Catch 22 situation. I therefore have no choice but to go to the browser.preferences.inContent option in about.config, so that I can get the old 'pop-up style' preferences to make my colour changes. That old 'pop-up' preferences window uses my Windows colour scheme, so I can see that without a problem.

I therefore need about.config to allow me to use Firefox.

when media starts playing on my computer without my consent, this should be considered a cybercime.

The only way for a video to start playing should be `right click -> play`

cut the nonsense with the *media.autoplay.enabled* switch. it doesnt work and it never will. as soon as the website uses any kind of scripting, this switch is ineffective.


which extension do i need to install to stop this autoplay nightmare forever?

Foxit Reader is my favourite PDF program. To be able to save and print from the preview window in Firefox (on the left hand upper side) I use the ESR channel. Till version 59.9 at the bottom of the preview window a toolbar appeared with which I could save or print the document. Since the upgrade to version 60.2, this toolbar does not appear (which was the fact when I used the standard version of Firefox). I want to downgrade to ESR 59.9 (though Mozilla does not recommend this) in order to have back the toolbar, but if I choose for this version (in the download history under 'options') the latest version remains. Secondly: Is there a way to retrieve the mentioned toolbar in ESR version 60.2?

Just had to rewrite this post because this site inadvertently refreshed screen and lost my content!

I used Firefox 56.0.2 because I NEED to use legacy add-ons that ensure security and safety, these add-ons have no alternative in Quantum and no update. All of my other Add-ons have versions that support this edition of Firefox.

TODAY three of my important Firefox add-on were DISABLED BY FIREFOX, with no warning or caution and without my authority.

The updates were

LASTPASS UBLOCK ORIGIN GHOSTERY

I think it is extremely unlikely that these three companies unilaterally and randomly all decided to stop using the add-ons on the SAME DAY. I might have left those companies reviews expressing my concern by now that they have been disabled I can’t leave a review. So there is this fake positive picture painted of reviews on Mozilla site.

So I can only presume that it was MOZILLA FIREFOX that FORCED this on me, pitting my loyalty of one set of add-ons with another.

I am DISGUSTED by this behaviour from Mozilla, oh yes I am sure they will want to blame the add-on providers but it will be under their suggestion, rules or whatever.

I still can’t update the legacy add-ons (which still work) nor is there any alternative in Quantum.

I was quite happy in my time shell using add-ons I trusted and relied upon, that are secure in their own right, SO WHY IS MOZILLA MESSING WITH ME.

I can guess the responses will be just go ahead an upgrade Firefox, but WHY SHOULD I BE FORCED KICKING AND SCREAMING into a version of Firefox that does not meet my needs.

The bigger question is WHY WOULD I TRUST MOZILLA FIREFOX when they can mess with my productivity and give me this problem at their whim when I can choose Opera, Chrome in all of it’s variants and not have this kind of problem. They may be as bad but they have not hurt me already.

So before I go I have to ask this community if they can help me.

1. Is there a fork of the old firefox that allows the install of legacy versions of add-on, i.e. one that does not have Mozilla poking it’s nose in? 2. Is there a setting in About Config that may enable me to override this disabling of the above add-ons?

I have not listed the legacy add-ons that still work because they are clearly not the problem and I am sure that there are many thousands of users that have different legacy add-ons that face this same problem.

It was bad enough that EVERY time I used firefox I got these “your version of firefox is critically out of date” nagware messages and that even after closing them I got more nagging when I scrolled done.

It is MY computer, MY risk, MY choice, if I can’t TRUST Mozilla to let me work in peace then I really do not think I can risk using a later version of Firefox.

If anyone has any constructive advice THAT ANSWERS MY QUESTIONS ABOVE to get this working again I would appreciate it.
