Hello, I've followed Firefox's invitation to install and update the browser on my Mac. Unfortunately the new version is not compatible with OS 10 El Capitan, my operating system, so now I can't use Firefox at all. How I do get the old version back?

Thank you, Lars

Older Version Firefox - Blank Screen

Hi, I recently installed Firefox 49.0.2 on my mac which is up to date on OS Monterey. When I opened Firefox the browser screen was completely blank. I can see the URL bar and when I move my mouse I can see that there are links on the page which I can click on, but the screen is blank.

I've tried redownloading Firefox as well as other, older versions and they also show a blank screen. Only the browser screen is blank; if I click on add-ons a new tab opens and I can see that.

The link below has three screenshots showing exactly what I can see. Hopefully this makes sense. Thanks

Hi,

I recently updated Mozilla browser for Mac today (version 99.0.1, 64-Bit on April 13, 2022). And now I can not switch between my Gmail accounts that I am signed into (from the top right icon, switch accounts) all it does is load and bring me back to the default account I have set up. It is a bit frustrating since I have to manually log back in everytime and it was so seamless before.

Any help is appreciated.

Can't restore previous session tabs after Firefox crash using Firefox 95 on Mac

I have consulted https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-restore-my-tabs-last-time. That article says:

-Click on the menu button [three lines at the upper right] to open the menu panel. -Click History. -Click Recently Closed Tabs.

I am using Firefox 95.0.2 for Mac (iOS 10.15.7). There is no "Recently Closed Tabs" option to click after clicking on History per the above instruction. I have saved various files from the time of the crash, in particular "previous.jsonlz4" (a 20.6 MB file, as I had a very large number of tabs open). Is there any way to use this or some other file to restore my old tabs?

Hi,

I cannot find a way to turn off/disable the "AutoFill" setting... it keeps on revealing my email addresses before I've typed them out.

I'm not a fan of these security breeches. Firefox is giving the wrong info online about disabling this feature because each time I try to disable in preferences/privacy... there is no "dropdown menu" whatsoever.

Any help on this matter will be most appreciated.

Hi, I downloaded iMacros 8.9.7 onto an older version of Firefox, but when I click the extension the sidebar is blank. I know the add-on is there because if I move my mouse I can see there are buttons I can click.

I also recently posted a question about my Firefox screen being blank which was resolved.

Thanks
