I have a brand new laptop with Windows 8 that came equipped with Simplepass 6.0, I'm assuming is the newest version of Simplepass. I downloaded the most recent copy of Firefox, version 17, and Simplepass does not work. If I can't get this to work, I'll use Internet Explorer because I want to use the fingerprint scanner. If this can't be fixed, is there a somewhat recent copy of Firefox that will work with Simplepass 6.0?

So For The 3rd TIME WHEN I'VE PLEADINGLY ASKED NOT TO UPDATED Why Does FF Update My Browser?

You see, I've asked this same question twice before, because Firefox has once again for the third time updated by browser DESPITE MY PLEADING REQUEST TWICE BEFORE NOT TO DO SO. but now I have a platform to make Firefox's DISHONESY public, putting them to task for specifically defying a very adamant request, NOT TO UPDATE MY BROWSER, CIRCUMSTANCES THAT have consistently, repeatedly occurred throughout all the years I've been with Firefox since 2005.

Why is it that Firefox deliberately continues to defy, ignore the wishes of its most loyal customers inflame me beyond words, when I've repeatedly made it KNOWN QUITE WELL NOT TO HAVE MY BROWSER UPDATED.

BUT NOW AFTER ALL THIS TIME, TOGETHER WITH THE INSIGHT I HAVE ACCRUED AS AN IT INDUSTRY SPECIALIST I do very well know why Firefox CONTINUES THIS PRACTICE WITH ABANDON.

1.They don't like anyone fooling around with the about:config (then why did you ever include it in the first place) the way I do.

2. They don't like anyone making incompatible add-ons extensions COMPATIBLE again the way I do.

3. They don't like anyone tampering with Firefox the way I do.

And all Firefox has to do to nullify all the meticulous hard work I spend changing about:config. configurations to accommodate my own and my company's needs and all the hard work. spending time enabling newly incompatible extensions I need to work as efficiently and effectively as possibleamong other things that I've tweaked, WHICH I EXACTLY WHAT YOU DO FOR THE REASONS I GAVE. YOU DO IT deliberately, spitefully so. And that is the definitive reason for YOUR total defiance in disregarding a customer's request. Additionally, YOU, fIREFOX feel that since YOU wrote the code, and own the code, YOU can insist USERS follow the Firefox protocols exactly as YOU demand.

Another example of YOUR dictatorial approach to browsing the web is that that YOU feel no one should dare take a gander at content that is not up to the standards of WHAT YOU BELIEVE IS purity AND ANY OTHER CONTENT CORRUPTING THE MORALS OF OUR YOUTH.

In one of the instances in which my browser was updated despite my adamant position against it, SOMEONE IN YOUR ORGANIZATION deleted several STRICTLY STRAIGHT adult sites from my bookmarks.

SO NOW, NOT ONLY DO you HAVE AN INTRUSIVE BIG BROTHER ATTITUDE THAT NO ONE DARE DEVIATE FROM THE OFFICIAL FIREFOX BROWSING PROTOCOLS BUT NOW YOU'VE IMPLEMENTED A CENSORING CAMPAIGN ON WHAT YOU CAN READ, LOOK AT OR SIMPLY BOOKMARK.

BUT IT GETS WORSE, MUCH WORSE.THE LAST TWO TIMES YOU UPDATED MY BROWSER AGAINST MY WISHES, YOU GAVE ME THE LAMEST MOST ASININE, INSULTING, MORONIC REASON WHY YOU UPDATED IT TWICE BEFORE AS IF THEY WERE MERELY EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES THAT OTHERWISE WOULD NEVER HAVE VIOLATED YOUR CUSTOMER'S PRIVACY AS WELL AS BEING DEFIANT, ARROGANT AND JUST PLAIN TERRIBLE BUSINESS PRACTICES. BUT NOW IN ADDITION TO PROVING YOURSELVES TO BEING SOCIOPATH MEGALOMANIACS YOU'VE ALSO REVEALED YOURSELVES TO BEING ABSOLUTE CHRONIC LIARS.

AND THAT IS BECAUSE I'M IN CHARGE OF MY COMPANY'S IT DEPARTMENT AND HAVE MANY COMPUTERS UNDER MY CONTROL AND SUPERVISION. I'VE ONLY RECENTLY SWITCHED OVER SOME OF OUR COMPUTERS FROM IE TO FIREFOX AS A TEST AND I AM PRIVY TO WHAT HAS BEEN GOING ON AMONG THE COMPUTERS THAT HAVE BEEN USING FIREFOX AS A TEST STUDY.

AND WHILE THE TRUTH BEING WHAT IT IS, YOU MADE SURE NOT TO MESS WITH MY BROWSER, AS IT IS CLEARLY CONFIGURED NOT TO BE UPDATED, WHICH TO YOUR CREDIT, YOU HAD GIVEN IT A WIDE BERTH, BUT YOU DID SINISTERLY UPDATE SIX COMPUTERS THAT WERE PART OF OUR TEST STUDY THAT HAD THE SAME BROWSER CONFIGURATION REQUEST NOT TO BE UPDATED BUT WHICH YOU UPDATED NEVERTHELESS. THESE COMPUTERS WERE PART OF A PRODUCTIVITY STUDY WHICH BY UPDATING IT SET THE ENTIRE LITTLE EXPERIMENT OF OURS BACK A BIT.

SO, WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH YOU? I REALLY HAVE TO THINK LONG AND HARD ABOUT HOW I RESPOND TO AN ORGANIZATION THAT HAS SHOWN NOTHING BUT THE WORST SORT OF APATHY, DISHONEST BUSINESS PRACTICES I'VE SEEN SINCE BEING IN THE IT INDUSTRY.

FF was behaving strangely - I couldn't see images on websites. I checked all my updates and it was all good, FF was the most recent, Flashplayer was the most recent, so I restarted FF - no luck. So I restarted my Mac - I still couldn't get images when I went to websites so I decided to uninstall and reinstall FF. I have app trap and it asked if I wanted to delete all associated files when I deleted FF from my applications, I clicked yes. Then when I reinstalled FF 17 and opened it there was absolutely zero history. My trash hasn't been emptied, is there anyway I can find the files with my bookmarks, history, passwords, etc?

I'm on OS 10.7.5 and was reinstalling FF 17.0.1

Before I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8, I synced my firefox. I performed a clean install of Windows 8, meaning I wiped my C: drive. After the install of Windows 8, I was unable to retrieve my personal data from the Mozilla server. The browser is telling me to sync my stuff with another device but I saw, when syncing for the first time, the browser said something along the lines of "Backing up your data to Mozilla servers." How do I retrieve my data from those servers?
