As of about firefox 63, it will no longer be possible to prevent firefox from checking for updates as the preference (option) to do so is being removed. In the past, it was simply a matter of setting the option to never check for updates. This is important in an organization as you want everyone to be at the same level. In such organizations, the latest firefox would be obtained once, checked out, then rolled out to the organization from it's support system team/person. Is there going to be a way to prevent the message "an update is available, please install?"

In prior versions of Firefox, the Properties Box used to include a large text "Description" box where I could put login information and other details for that bookmark. Now, in version 62.0, that text box no longer exists. Old bookmarks that I have no longer have this information either.

I used this text box extensively and Firefox was the one browser that had this box. Now it appears to have been removed. Can I get this Description box back? Or do I switch to a different browser?

Thanks, Macbel

On my laptop, when scrolling fast through a question I asked on mozilla support community website (the question is mentioned in the screenshot below), a very small portion in the right side suddenly turned to red... I don't know what portion it was exactly, but I definitely saw something in red there.. & the thing is, when i scroll slowly, there's nothing in red colour there.. so a portion suddenly turned to red when only scrolled fast. It could only be a graphics glitch or something wrong with the website right? and nothing else right?

We are migrating from firefox Version 61 to Version 62. after sucessfull installation i am seeing an error your connection is not secure. If i import the certification manually and if the launch the firefox it works as expected and i am able to launch all the websites.

I have tried to copy the files(cert9.db and key4.db) from my profile to others. It is not working for others.

But if i manually import it works for them.

Is there any way i can silently automate them to import?

Thanks

Loading http://localhost or https://localhost is slow as hell. There is a 60sec delay on initial load. This happens with Firefox (63) and Firefox Dev Ed (63). I believe it something to do with advanced IP4 IP6 settings but can't find any useful info on this site about this. This makes FF bloody useless for in a dev environment. How do I fix? Which advanced setting fixes this?
