Firefox is just not working for me. It's not reading the stylesheets on my website, tabs are disappearing but the websites are still open. It seems the installation may have become corrupt. If I uninstall and reinstall what data will I lose if any?

I use to click on PDF files and they would open and not download to my download folder. Well now every time i click on a PDF file it downloads it. I have tried every option in settings/general/apps and they still download in a folder. So I thought I would try MS edge and it does the same thing. Is it not the browser and was it in a MS update? It has never done this before. I don't want all these PDF files downloaded!

Firefox v.100 won't work on MacOS El Capitaine

Invited by your recent email, I downloaded and installed Firefox v.100 onto my old but still very trusty MacBook Pro laptop, which can't reliably run anything later than El Capitaine. It downloaded and installed ok, but then refused to work, with a message that v.100 needs at least High Sierra to operate. There was no warning of this prior to installation. I searched the disc with Disk Drill, hoping to resurrect the older version of Firefox. However, it seems that v.100 has overwritten the previous version rather than deleted it, since Disk Drill could find no trace of any version, deleted or otherwise, other than v.100.

I note that you retain backnumbers of Firefox on your website - so my question is "Which one should I download that will reliably work on El Capitaine?" I'm currently forced to use an old version of Safari as a browser on the laptop which I dislike intensely. I'm submitting this question from my desktop machine running High Sierra, on which v.100 works very well.

Many thanks in advance for your assistance. Gareth Bennett

I am currently encountering a deeply frustrating issue with Firefox. I develop video games; I am attempting to download a zip file from Steam Workshop containing a player-created mod. I have this file on my other computer--it is not malicious. It contains nothing more than XML files and a jpg. Every time I attempt to download this file using Firefox, Firefox blocks the download as a potential security risk. I then click the download manager and tell it to download anyway; Firefox then pretends to complete the download, but in actuality the file remains at 0 bytes and a "part" file is created containing what I can only assume is the actual data.

Its not really a migration question but can be helpful to those who wish to mange their stuff without the use of other people's computers(the cloud).

I would like to turn all my addons into a text or html file of links or names. Why? The addons are going wonky again a few folders seem to be walmare but not reporting to be malware, its a huge pita to , manually write down each one. Basically, I need to nuke my install and reinstall it all fresh then reinstall all my addons. This is no easy feat when you use 20+ addons. And yes this seems to happen regularly after a couple of years.

Another question, If I sync'd just the addons would it let give me the addons fresh from the file repository without anything extra folders/files or will it just save my current addon folder corrupt files and all?

Also if I just synced addons it won't mess with my bookmarks or settings, will it?

PLEASE help me find a way around this 'so called' improvement of auto downloading any attachment or file to my Downloads folder without any choice from me. I have checked the 'always ask' in General settings - this functionality DOES NOT WORK - IT IS A waste of time. When prompt asks what you want to do, it auto downloads IN THE BACKGROUND even if you say open and do NOT check save option. This is a MAJOR frustration, makes extra work for me to have to remember to go back to Downloads to delete all these files that just pile up, where I separately saved-off the file as usual to my other, separate intended directory. We should have the right to make that decision on whether or not we want to save it to our computers and take up space. PLEASE REVERSE THAT FUNCTIONALITY TO WHAT IS WAS BEFORE. THANK YOU>

I have just installed V.100 and have come across a small problem. I can't sign into 'The Canberra Times' site. The option to sign in is missing from their home page. It is there using MS Edge or Chrome and I can login to the site on those two browsers. This does not seem to be a problem with other websites that I have tried since the new version!

I can't even begin to imagine what might be going on with a situation like this! Thanks.
