I use 118.0.2 (64-bit) because I do not like the newer versions, but every time I open it I have to decline two consecutive Firefox popups urging me to upgrade to the newest version. Since I open Firefox dozens of times a day, these constant popups are driving me crazy. How can I stop them? Thanks.

Tired of the bullying tactics of Microsoft forcing me to accept Microsoft Edge when all I want is Google Chrome, so I'm thinking of making Mozilla my default browser, but I'm concerned about whether Mozilla will tranfer all my info. I sell the occasional bits on Etsy and Ebay. I had found the perfect tool to edit my photos on Chrome. Now this has gone haywire because I am forced into using Edge, which does not give me anything like the editing choices I have on Chrome. I have followed all the directions given by Microsoft to get off Edge and back into Chrome but they have all failed miserably, so I am trapped in Edge and all my efforts are turning into Groundhog Day ! Also if I return to Firefox, what will happen to all my photos, and the folders they are kept in ? As an 86 year old, I need clear, concise directions on how I can restore everything I need to be able to return to a browser I was completely comfortable with. Please advise.

I usually have two Ff sessions goins; one regular for sites I log on to and a Private for casual browsing.

It would be great if I could set the Private session to always accept cookies and not prompt me, but the two modes don't seem to be separated in the settings.

Is there a work-around (or possibly a plug-in) that could solve this?
