No matter what version of FireFox i use it constantly lock`s up , freezes. Nothing works to resolve the issue, restarting the desktop, refreshing the desktop. The only thing i can do is kill the process or reboot but the problem just keeps coming back without fail. I`m using deb 10.6 with a dell i5 4th, gen with plenty of ram and hdd space, it`s a new install at that only about a week old. I have noticed this has been a problem with FF ever since i started using it many years ago.\ The others are all the same, it seems that people and companies don`t take much pride in their work anymore. You see this everywhere not just with FF.

I also noticed that when "Share Data" is checked Wikipedia is mentioned, this site is so subjective it is not allowed to be used by any University student for research so why it it doing being used here ? The other problem is if plugin info can be seen and recorded why are extensions allowed in the store that supposedly block this info from being collected when they don`t work, this feature proves it, if it's supposed to be blocked then it would not be published in the form even after clicking "Share Data" clicking anything is irreverent it should be blocked no matter what.

Firefox unexpectedly quit, open tabs lost when MacBook Pro's charge died. After charging, did restart since Menu button to access History was missing (only menu bar visible). It returned, but unable to restore closed tabs (as I've done in the past) - History shows it to be "empty." I've spent hours searching Mozilla Support...can anyone please help? These 8-10 tabs must be somewhere!

I can no longer stream CBS All Access. They are saying that I have some kind of ad blocking problem in my software therefore they cannot play movies with their ads. Firefox recently did a download on Nov. 18. It was 78.5 Oesr. Could that be the problem? Does 78.5 Oesr have some kind of an ad blocker? If so, how can I uninstall it?

Hi there,

Every time Firefox updates it crashes the work that I am doing on my websites and I have to restart again. In occassions, it makes my extension to stop working properly, which is more annoying cause Firefox is just a tool and the extensions are the only reason why I stay in Firefox and I do not switch to Chrome.

In the past, you could select when to update, that is I updated when I wanted and I had time and not in the middle of a process or line of daily tasks.

I have Ubuntu, and I select the repositories that I want to update everytime. It is time consuming, but I do not want to risk that Lastpass stop working and I have to look for other ways to findout my passwords.

Is there anyway to disable update in Firefox as it was in the past and made me very happy?

This post https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1199816 opted as solution "There is no reason to use an old version of Firefox"... well, congratulations for not thinking on your clients, that is a terrible response cause to take the power of your users to update whenever they want and take it for yourself.

Anyway, I will switch to Chrome as it does not autoupdate unless I want. Thanks

Thanks,

                Carlos

I've recently encountered a problem that apparently appeared in the past for other users but not for me. It happens in youtube and not always. Back button plays the same video instead of previous one.

(Most but not all) steps to repro: 1. Open a video on youtube. 2. Play some of it then go to another video on that page. 3. Play a bit then depress browser back button.

Expected outcome: A. Browser displays previous address of video in the address bar. B. Browser displays the page (video) corresponding to previous address.

Actual outcome: A. Browser displays previous address of video in the address bar. B. Browser displays the same page (video), i.e. of current address. C. The "history" stack in the back button is updated as if it had worked.

I have FF 81.0.2 running on a PC I'm replacing. I prefer ESR, since not so many upgrades. Installed 78.4.0ESR on the new PC & tried copying the contents of the 81 profile folder into the ESR profile folder, deleting all the content of the ESR profile folder 1st. When I try opening the ESR install, it tells me "profile contains old content, set up new profile." For the PW's, I tried copying & replacing key4.db, signons.sqlite & logins.json in the ESR profile, still no PW's or logins in the ESR. All I really need in the ESR from the 81 are the bookmarks (thousands) & passwords (about 400). There MUST be some way to do this! Thanks in advance!

I am the IT manager for a small company. I have a standard Firefox Profile that I update to users about once a year. During that time of course they change, but should mostly be bookmarks.

I have one user who has recently been having issues with Intuit\QuickBooks Online recently. For reasons that I can not figure out she is getting security challenges (Pick all the crosswalks) and being required to login in to sites that I can open just with (her) saved credentials on my PC using the exact same URL.

I am looking to understand if there are any settings that might impact this behavior.
