why have my add-ons been disabled in firefox 55.0.3? i have not updated firefox because i would lose several of the most useful add-ons. using windows 7 w/ the latest updates. THE LOSS OF MY TAB GROUPINGS AND SAVED PASSWORD EDITOR IS AN UNMITIGATED DISASTER! I might as well use the crap from microsoft. they also have the "big brother" attitude - i.e. WE will decide what you want and don't and there's not a g.d. thing you can do about it, ha, ha! PLEASE don't keep this condensing attitude! i need something to help, not hinder, my every move online.

New versions of Firefox regularly break things. Whether it's Netflix/Stan/Pronto or other streaming services, add-ons, re-invent the UI, some websites just stop working properly with the newer version or a number of other things.

I have 10 PCs here. We are using 55.0.3 because it was the last version with a UI that we were all familiar with, worked with all the services we use, supported all the add-ons and more. It's very outdated but I want to keep all PCs on a known working environment.

So I'm currently testing 61.0.2 (Not 62.0 because it's a zero release, which always have issues). I've managed to find solutions for most annoyances regarding add ons and using Photon-Australis to get back the curved tabs (The square look is just plain disgusting). I've got the reload icon back in the address bar, and hidden the 3 dots with a 30 second timeout so I will likely never have to be annoyed by it. I've got rid of the wasted spaces on the address bar too.

I use a space theme (Earth from space). It uses a cyan font. On the white tabs it's all but invisible. Using the dark theme fixes that, but I'd like to have the tabs the same color as the background of the address bar as in v55. Reading through the userchrome.css file I just get lost.

The other thing I'd like to preserve are the icons for home, download and bookmarks, Is there a way to preserve the icons that are used in v55 rather than the uglier ones use in v61?

I'm sorry for coming across so negatively, it' just I don't get why developers keep changing UIs that are working. Change for the sake of change, which just adds frustration. Firefox is not the only program. Windows is probably the worst. So please don't be offended.

Firefox breaks all my important add-ons. Without these add-ons, Firefox is not worth using, at least not to me. The add-ons I use are:

 (1) Add Bookmark Here ^2
 (2) All Tabs Helper
 (3) FlashGot
 (4) Session Manager

I am currently using Firefox 55.0.3 (64-bit).

Yes, I know it's not secure. I don't care.

Yes, I have looked for replacements for each of these these add-ons. I found none.

Yes, I turned off updates. Yes, I turned off "Use a background service to install updates". Firefox still updated to 56.

I have replaced the Firefox utility "updater.exe" with a program that does nothing. Will that stop updates from occurring? If not, what else can I do?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Hi: I am trying to decide do I just totally give up on Firefox after all these years and move to Chrome or is there some logical path for addons planned/in process that I do not know about.

It is like Firefox Management Team/Committee team made this technical decision with little understanding on the impact to the developers that had put in hard yards for years, or users who had been using these addons. I am at a loss when I try to understand why would they jeopardise so much.

Since Firefox went to that "new firefox", sorry I dont know the technical lingo, most of the addons I use became unavailable. I have since written to each developer to ask, will they be upgrading their addon and the answer is NO. So basically Firefox is only useful to me if

  • I stay in the old version on Mac Sierra OSX (55.0.3).
  • For the new windows 10 brand new laptop I tried also to create using the new Firefox and it was very unsuccessful as there are no addons even close to what I was using.

For the Cookies controller there are some close but nothing as good as this addon in terms of how I used it -- manually removed cookies.

On my Mac Firefox 55.0.3, I have the following addons (all these have the LEGACY yellow highlight tag in the list)

1 Cookie Controller

2 Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar

3 Session Manager

4 New Add On Bar

5 Add Bookmarks Here

6 Change Bookmark Recent Folder List Length

7 Open Bookmarks in New Tab

8 Download Status Bar

9 AutoPin Tab

10 Close Tab Button

11 Tab Open/Close Control

12 and uBlock Origin I cannot update as it says on its webpage, with this technical change, it is not supported, so not upgrade it.

Any practical advice?

Since the bug-outbreak thing happened a few days ago, all or most of my addons have stopped working, forcing me to use them as temporary ones. I understand that there was a fix rolled out for the latest version of FireFox but I sadly cannot that version. This whole thing confuses me deeply. I've got into about:config, disabled the need to have them signed, used the addon going around that adds the fix, tried a bunch of methods I saw all over the place but nothing seems to be working. I sadly do need the use of the old addon methods. (Not to mention some other changes visually were just flat out ugly with no fix in sight.)

I'm told all of the past version fixes only work on the 'ESR' versions. Where I'm stuck on FireFox 55.

Is there no way to just force addons to stay on even if not signed in the first place? Or auto-load temporary addons upon FireFox launching?

With 4 different user accounts on our Windows 7 PC, we need each user to have their own chosen version of Firefox. One wants to stay with an older version, another wants the latest all the time.

There must be a way to install and make each FF version available only to the user currently on the computer. Each user has their own AppData folder after all.

And, no, not interested in the profiles nonsense. Want different versions of FF installed but each version only available to the user who installed it.

I have Firefox set never to remember cookies except for a few select sites and to erase cookies and internet history upon closing the browser. Indeed, the sites outside my whitelist have always acted as if cookies are disabled for them (giving "you must enable cookies" if I attempt to log in, etc.). I also am required to re-log in to whitelisted sites after relaunching the browser, of course.

However, I just ran CCleaner, and its deletion log listed over 1400 Firefox cookies, a great many from sites I haven't visited in months. Apparently, Firefox's "never store cookies" option either isn't working due to a glitch or just doesn't work period, appearing to the user not to store cookies but just storing and not deleting them anyway.

1. Does Firefox just save cookies anyhow no matter your preferences, or is this a glitch? If it is a glitch, how do I resolve it? 2. Where is the age-old cookie information that CCleaner deleted stored, so I can delete it manually in the future?

(Note: Yes, I know about CCleaner's privacy concerns, but that's beside this particular point.)

Thanks in advance for any help.

I have autosaved my username and password for a banking website and my pocket wifi login page. I want to remove it so I can't automatically sign in. I went to Options, Security, Saved Logins and removed the websites. However, the two websites are both still autofilling the login details. They no longer appear under Saved Logins. I've also tried adding the websites as an 'Exception' but this hasn't worked either. I've tried closing Firefox and restarting but it hasn't fixed the problem.

I am well aware that the Firefox version on the dozen or so PCs here are out of date. Problem is, Firefox updates regularly break things, or the UI changes. We have been seeing "Your Firefox is critically out of date" prompts every time we use Firefox.

One person clicked on the update and it broke several things such as bookmarks, a online game and a couple of addons. Fortunately I take backup images of PCs every night so we were able to restore the system.

I only have one test PC here. I am already working on several major projects and just don't have time to test, resolve issues and update Firefox at this time.

In the mean time, is there a way to stop this incessant nag that our browsers are critically out of date.

I'd rather not get into an argument about why the update is required, or how or why it breaks things. They are what they are. All I want to do is stop the nag.

thanks

I tried going into the about:config, but the only entries under "print.print_" were only for Epson; Brother doesn't even show up. My new printer is a Brother, but a quick search turned up nothing with "brother" in it, even though it does show up as the non-default printer in the drop-down window. I want to have the Brother printer come up as the default printer, but can't find anyway to do it. I have checked the support pages and searched, but found nothing that seemed to apply. I'm still using Firefox 55.0.3 as the later versions don't support the "open tabs from last time" add-on and that is a great time-saver and organizer for me. I am using Windows 7. Thanks! Wolfgang P.s.: I have the Brother printer set up as the default in my Windows Control Panel. I also tried restarting the computer.
