Just upgraded to version 96. Even thought FF ends normally at startup I get message about if I want to restore sessions. I have tried setting max_resume option to 0. Still ask to restore session. How do I "downgrade" to a previous version of FF?

As the title suggests, I just want firefox to be nice to use again. Since its latest update it is far from nice. Too much stuff is set to darkmode, even though I have googled like crazy and fiddled with most, if not all, about:config options to try and restore it.

I will do whatever it takes, but my firefox theme (abstract firefox) must remain intact. Surely there is something I can do in the userChrome.css or whatever it's called.

It is just so very tiring having to fix mistakes made by firefox, that keeps changing stuff for the worse. Changes that nobody ever asked for. I am giving the browser one more chance for old times sake, since I have been using it for 20 years or thereabouts. So please, firefox... stop trying to force your users into using stuff that your staff team or whatever likes to use. Think of your users.

And please help me out.

Thank you.

Well, even the pulldown is not working here. None of the solutions for the garbled text works for me (and now that pulldown option isn't always working) and I am about to permanently change to Safari after years of being a Firefox advocate and user. Without any way to actually ask an actual person about this question/problem and not being a programmer I am exceedingly frustrated and disappointed. I do have to agree with the commenter who said we shouldn't have to go through this just to get a website to display. I've tried several times to upload an image but frankly I feel like just giving up

SINCE THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN WHEN I SIGN INTO MY LIVE.COM EMAIL WHEN I USE EDGE, MICROSOFT SAYS THAT THIS IS A FIREFOX PROBLEM. MAYBE!

AFTER I ENTER MY LOGIN PASSWORD TO GET INTO MY LIVE.COM EMAIL, I AM RE-DIRECTED TO A WINDOW THAT ASKS IF I WANT TO STAY SIGNED IN (KEEP ME SIGNED IN). THE 2 CHOICES AVAILABLE ARE "NO" AND "DON'T SHOW THIS WINDOW AGAIN". NEITHER OF THESE 2 BUTTONS WORK AS I KEEP GETTING THEM EVERY TIME I LOG INTO MY EMAIL.
ONE THING I HAVE NOTED IS THAT IF I GO BACK 1 PAGE FROM THE "KMSI" PAGE, THIS OFTEN TAKES ME TO MY LIVE.COM EMAIL INBOX. THIS MAKES ME THINK THAT I AM BEING RE-DIRECTED TO THE "KMSI" PAGE! AS STATED EARLIER MS SAYS THIS IS A FIREFOX PROBLEM BECAUSE WHEN I LOG IN USING EDGE, THE BUTTONS WORK AND THE "KMSI" WINDOW DOESN'T RE-APPEAR!

THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON/OFF SINCE 11/18 AND HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET MICROSOFT TO FIX THE PROBLEM SINCE THEN. ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED! SINCERELY, D

My C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp folder fills up with Firefox update folders called "MozillaBackgroundTask{numberletterstring}", a new one of which appears every 7 hours (except when computer is off because I changed the Update setting after this issue started so the "Allow Firefox to automatically install updates" has the "when Firefox is not running" unchecked). Every day I delete the previous day's folders. This is annoying. It started within the last month. I don't use Firefox as my default browser. This only happens on my Windows 7 Pro laptop, not on my Windows 10 laptop. Can anyone tell me why this has started happening and how to stop these files keep accumulating please?

Clicking Print brings up the web page, looks fine. When I click the Print Button (with the Fit to Page Width icon lit) it only prints a much larger image. Only the upper left part of the image shown in the print window is printed. Ctrl-P does the same. This started a week or so ago. If I select the test on the page, then copy it, insert it into my word processor, then Print from the Word Processor it prints fine, correct size.

Ideas?

Hello folks,

I'm looking to upgrade my FF browser as much as possible, but I need to run Mac OS X 10.9.5 (for legacy software) on my older iMac.

Currently running "78.15.0esr (64-bit)" and the "About" window says "Firefox is up to date" and "You are currently running on the esr update channel" (Not sure what that means)

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Windows 10 Proxy Issue with Firefox 96

We run Firefox in a Windows 10 20H2 64-bit business environment and use a proxy to control access to the Internet. Within Windows we enable the system proxy settings found under Start>Settings>Network and Internet>Proxy and we define some local server names that should bypass the proxy.

Some clients have updated to Firefox 96 since yesterday and we are seeing that they can only access the first name found in the list that should bypass the proxy. All others are being sent through the proxy and subsequently blocked as if they aren't in the list. We tested the same local web pages in Edge and they load without issue. Clients with Firefox 95 or lower are not affected.

I've attached a screen snip of the Windows 10 proxy settings found on the client, and I've typed some example names into the exceptions box.

We've tried the obvious computer restart, and we've removed and re-added the local server names(exceptions) from the proxy settings, and the result is the same. It seems as though Firefox is not properly "seeing" the information that is in the Windows/System proxy settings.

The workaround we've used so far is entering the local server name(s) that should bypass the proxy in the field under Firefox in Settings>General>Network Settings>Settings>"No proxy for."

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
