I am having trouble with the amazon website. I recently installed firefox and for some reason I cant' look for any kind of product in amazon.com . I tried to see if it would work without any extensions or in safe mode, but no luck. If I click on a product from a link it will work, but for reason it wont work in any other way.

I just received the notice that my system is too old to update Firefox, yet down the page a bit, my system is listed as a supported OS. Why is this? And what can I do that does not require taking a month or six to understand a new OS? ( ps: I'm old, too ) Also, my system is Windows Home 7, NOT Vista.

Problem:

Unable to disable/modify default Quick Find keybindings (the apostrophe key and the forward slash key).

Attempted (and Failed) Solutions:

(1) Not able to use Murphy's solution (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1215667), because there is no 'Options' subheading in my 3-bar drop-down menu and I am otherwise unable to find a 'Browsing' subheading.

(2) Not able to use cor-el's solution (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/984845), because the modification suggested is no longer supported by my version of Firefox (61.0.1 (64-bit) on Linux Xenial).

(3) Not able to use suggestion at https://techdows.com/2018/06/disable-quick-find-firefox.html, because ‘accessibility.typeaheadfind.manual‘ preference is not listed. Toggling value of 'accessibility.typeaheadfind', 'accessibility.typeaheadfind.flashBar', and 'accessibility.typeaheadfind.linksonly' did not disable Quick Find after restarting Firefox.

(4) I also tried adding the preference 'searchkeys.disable.all' to 'about:config' and setting its boolean value to 'true' (I am unable to recall source of this suggestion), but it also did not work.

Your help is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance for your time and effort!

All of a sudden, when I reboot my computer I get a message once I access Firefox saying my version of Firefox is out of date, but I can't download the current version because Firefox no longer supports Windows XP, which is the OS I use. Since I can't afford to upgrade my entire OS, how can I stop this message from appearing every time I reboot?

All official Portuguese government Customs and Export websites user java based forms. All updated versions have stopped working with those websites.

If I go to the ESR webpage and try to download the 52 version, the link automatically downloads the v60.

Help is appreciated.

Firefox 63.0b3 (64-bit) OS: MacOS 10.13.6

History: Setting "Always use private browsing mode" is enabled.

Tracking Protection: Use Tracking Protection to block known trackers: Always

Problem: there's no way to add a site to list of exceptions in "Tracking protection" section.

Enabling setting "Disable blocking temporarily" just disables tracking protection for one session (browser restart) but does not add the site to the list of exceptions.

Help shows up-to-date with v62 but some sites won't work and I have to use Opera.

I tried to follow the update's instructions for Pocket (that I used to use) but somewhere there must be data saying I'm still using FireFox version 18.

Is there anyway to update the "18" to "62", please.

Hi all,

Recently GMail has stopped working properly. When entering a search query + hitting enter, nothing happens. Even the autocomplete does not kick in. The Online Contacts (lower left) is also showing jumbled text, and the far right hand Side Panel is also not showing properly (although the buttons are there when I mouse hover over them). Firefox is completely up-to-date, Win 10 setup.
