I have to use version 51 so that I can use Java to open Oracle (I refuse to use IE). I have checked the box to never check for updates, Mozilla updated anyway. I deleted everything I could find on my computer Mozilla related, re-installed version 51, checked the box to not update and checked daily to make sure that there were no pending updates. I ran it for about a week just fine, but then it crashed and when it restarted, it was on version 53. I deleted everything Mozilla again, re-installed v51, told it not to install the sneaky background service, checked the never update box, went into the about:config and made sure the setting really said not to update, then went into the prefs.js file to triple check that it really really wouldn't be set to sneak in an update, and then went and double checked that the sneaky background service wasn't installed, then made sure it didn't have any pending updates anywhere. Ran it fine for a day, it crashed, and when I restarted it, surprise, surprise I'm on v54. It shouldn't be this hard to just stay on the version I want to use. What in God's name do I have to do to keep it from updating? Does Mozilla just ignore what the user actually tells it to do and does what it wants anyway or is my version of Mozilla just trying to start the Skynet revolution? I'm pretty close to just writing a vb script to just delete everything Mozilla off my computer and re-install v51 it everyday at midnight so I can just not have to deal with it anymore, but I figured I'd ask for help here first. If I can't get help here, I'll probably just go under my desk and cry while eating glue and rocking back and forth until they either fire me or have me committed.

When I press CTR +SHIFT+B, I don't see any of my bookmarks or anything to left or right, its all white I can see the top headings though.

When I click Bookmarks (up top next to History, and Tools) I can see all my bookmarks, there are quite a lot. The problem happened after I had to power off at the electrical outlet and I didn't shut down Windows 8.1, and Firefox, because my computer had stalled overnight.

I need to see my bookmarks again when I press CTR + Shift +B

My eyes get sore and I get epilectic symptoms from white background. I'm not only one on this and most of people don't even know they have the same problem. I can manage 6 hours staring white but after that I will get serious twitches and heart feelings when trying to fall in sleep. I use no drugs or alcohol. I tried find such a addon last time about 2 years ago with no success. I guess it is very difficult task...because dynamic nature of web pages. Is there any addon that is capable to switch text background color to light grey on ALL occasions?

My firefox browser has all but quit working. Sometimes it won't even open. Other times the site just seems to keep loading all kinds of other site stuff down in the in the lower left hand corner that I have never seen before. Then other times I will click on a bookmarked site and instead of opening it just keeps running the same stuff down in the bottom. I have tried several system restores. But it just keeps going back to doing the same thing after a few hours. Slamming the computer down by holding the power button down will get firefox going again but not for long.

Since a security update on 1-24-17 I have been receiving a "Bad news first: This tab has crashed" error. Following troubleshooting tips I refreshed FF. Same error. I created a new profile, same error. I uninstalled FF, and reinstalled FF, same error. I finally uninstalled FF and deleted the Mozilla folder to start with a clean slate. I downloaded the current FF and ended with the same error. I haven't made any changes to my system in the last several days. I even did a system restore prior to the 1-24 update. Same problem. I have a up to date ATI Radeon graphics. There are no crashes reported in the crash log.

Please help as I love FF.

Hi!

Since an FF update, I receive more and more push notification popups ('Would you like to receive notifications...'). It asks to en/disable it for a specific website but than it comes on another one. I don't want this feature and I never have asked for it.

How can I disable this pop up once and forever? I tried dom.webnotifications.serviceworker.enabled to false and dom.webnotifications.enabled to false, but the notification popups contnue to disturb me. I simply don't want to be asked.

I run v51.0.1 DELIBERATELY because you keep making changes that I canNOT undo! Today half my ad-ons that I have been using for YEARS became disabled. I don't care WHO thinks they are "old" or "unsafe" - THIS is why I have stayed on v51 so I can work with what I need instead of what you THINK I need. I need the config parameters to turn OFF ANY and ALL of your "protections" that I do not need You have 15 versions of defective software now, you had 14 until you screwed with mine. A "feature" without an OFF switch is a defect and I want this defect corrected. I do NOT want to update to 65 - I lose too many features I want to keep and the add-ons I want to keep will not work in v57+ - Hence I stayed at v51. --Kindly tell me how to repair my now-defective browser and then please tell your developers, as politely as you choose, to STOP ADDING DEFECTS! A "feature" without an OFF switch is a defect.

Thank you Richard Hill

As of 1/26/2017 I started having problems going to websites directly from desktop. Sometimes it works and other times it does not. (going to the same site) I power up or restart computer and it works for a couple ot times and thereafter it just sits at the home page which in my case is 'about blank'. I can get to all the websites if I just type the name in or use the bookmark Also if I exit from site ( click on X on top) and try to load another copy of firefox it sometimes says that it is still running ( sure enough I see it on the task bar although I have exited it by clicking on X. My platform is win10 (64 bit) Firefox version is 51.0.1 (32 bit) I re-installed it. Made no difference. I cannot test this without the addons as I would already be on the homepage. What should I try next? This used to work since the beginning of time. Thanks George

It's always running into problems. It cannot load weather.com at all. Now Google Chrome handles those websites without problems. What's the difference? Why is FF so lousy with certain websites? Thanks in advance for your help or tips.

My master password and all my stored password disappeared in Firefox 53. In security setting tab of setting the "use master password" checkbox is disabled and if I try to enable it a pop up error window is opened. Rolling back to Firefox 52 the situation returns to normal status and the master password appears again. What's happening? Is there an undocumented incompatibility? How can I use my stored password under Firefox 53?

Upgrading both Flash and Firefox has not resolved my problem. YouTube video plays about 15 minutes, then hangs. I click on the progress line, and it will start playing again. I use XP, SP3 for desk top. I bought a notebook with Win 10, and it hangs. When I right click to open in a new window, I often get " media not supported." I installed Google Chrome, and it never hangs.

Have been using Firefox for years now, and want to keep it as my main browser.

I was on Mozilla plug-in page that said I was using an older version and to update. I normally update from a different area where I click on a question mark and it takes me right to the update box that said it was up to date, My Avast program said the same thing for up-to-date software. But I updated it anyway and it wasn't until it installed that it said 51.0 (32-bit). Now my updates, that I remember, never said what *bit* it was before. I have a 64-bit operating system (Windows 8.1). Have all the updates been 32 bits? Because I read where 32 bits do not hold enough ram. I don't want things to slow down, especially movies I watch. I couldn't find the last version I had to go back to it since I'm worried I may have installed the wrong thing. Though I read on a Mozilla support page that Only Flash plug-ins and Silverlight plug-ins work with 64-bit. If that's the case then maybe all my installs have been 32 bits since I have Flash, Adobe Reader, Java and a few other plug-ins that work with certain systems installed in my computer and so far all those plug-ins work. So I'm just a little confused. I did go to the What's New section where I update and was able to click on a list for all Firefox releases but they only have the recent version that I just downloaded, not the last one I had in case I need to go back to it. If that's the case I need also to find out how to go back to that latest version. I'll be going to work soon and see what happens there to see what our computers update too. Thanks to anyone that can clear this up for me.
