I've been using Firefox 63.0 for quite some time and had dozens of websites open. I referred to these websites frequently. After checking some emails this morning, I decided to RESTART my laptop. It turned out this was a HUGE mistake!! When I went to "Recent Items" as I usually do to find the Firefox link, the only version available was 70.0.1. Not only was 63.0 NOT in "Recent Items" I could no longer find it in my Download logs. I had chosen NOT to begin using version 70.0 because there was no mechanism to move my open site from 63.0 to 70.0. HOW DO I FIND AND OPEN 63.0 OR, ALTERNATIVELY, GET 70.0 TO FIND AND RETAIN THOSE SITES I HAD ON MY 63.0? I should note that ALL MY PASSWORDS where required were stored on the 63.0 browser and are NOT present when I use the 70.0 version!!

I have the download setting to "Always ask you where to save files". Unfortunately, Firefox keeps changing the setting back to the default. I understand that, unfortunately, whenever Firefox does an update it changes all my settings back to the defaults (but that's a different issue).

I have 'Firefox updates' set to only install when I okay the install. Unfortunately something is changing even when I have not run an update.

Why might my download settings be reverting back to the default setting?

Every time I want to download i get offidocs that wants to open the document. How to remove offidocs ? I do NOT WANT IT !!! I have libreoffice what is doing a fine job, I do not want a browser with applications on a server. SECURITY. VUNERABLE. SLOW. And I do not want an complicated way to save a text.

Is there a way to permanently disable checking for updates? I don't want to update (and I don't care what people think about that), but every 5 minutes an update notification pops up that needs to be closed, and it is getting really annoying. Again i don't want to update and there is no option to disable checking for updates, only to automatically update whenever firefox wants to ruin my day or to bother me until I allow them to ruin it.

I didn't like the new functions of the firefox update from 17-11-2020 so I tried to use an older version. This however removed my history and bookmarks. Is there any way to get those back? I didn't have a firefox account until I asked this question.

Hello, is this the standard behavior for downloading the FF by using some different web browsers? I am talking still about the same version of 64bit FF for Win10 offline installer US but downloading this in different web browsers... The (final) downloaded file has exactly the same size of file but "slightly" different content - this is happening only when downloading FF. If I download different browser in various browsers then the size and content is exactly the same - but not in case of FF. Is it OK (some adjustemnt..) please or could it be virus? Thank you in advance for your respond. Jiri
