I have a LOT of plugins/addons across 3 machines and installing the new version of firefox breaks them all. I don't want the new version and have turned off auto-update. The update notification is constantly popping up and I can't turn it off. How do I make it so I don't see this notice?

Each new version will not work on my machine. I'm forced to stick with version 56.0.2

I (and most of my coworkers) use a Windows 7 laptop. Any version of Firefox after 56.0.2 simply will not open. We must either use 56.0.2 (which is a security risk, per the Mozilla website) or we have to switch to Chrome or IE. For many years, I have used Firefox (and use the latest version on my home computers), so all my bookmarks and processes are based on this browser. Every posted solution either requires me to make changes to the latest update (which won't open, so I can't change it) or it goes to a technical level that I can't handle. I've seen many posts about this problem (or similar), but apparently, it's not something that mozilla can fix, since I've loaded each new version as they come out, with the same result and have to reinstall the 56.0.2 version. Rather than losing a growing group of customers, if someone has a fix for this, let me know and more importantly, let mozilla know, so they can update the next version and bring us back!

You are asking people to support Mozilla Firefox by joining and donating but when you indicate to me how to use it to install it and what you say doesn't coincide with what you have on your page, it is frustrating to say the least. In your instructions it says clearly to Go to Menu, press Help, but, alas, there is no Help on the Menu! I think I will uninstall Firefox and go back to what I had before. Your technical support doesn't help me at all. Why don't you change your program to avoid these problems?

Please, no body is ret**d enough to not know what he's doing in such pity case. I heard a legend there is about:config setting to get rid of that question.

Security should never think for the user. It should give option atleast like ("NEVER AGAIN"). Bad thing is that security treats every user as bunch of id**ts.

PS: I was seeking the support by Google search engine so I'm sure there was no solution for that.

Thanks for your support.

QUICKFOX NOTES IS ANOTHER MATTER ENTIRELY: NOT ONE OF THE HUNDREDS OF 'NOTES' [AND IT SEEMS I HAVE TRIED EVERY ONE] THAT ALL SHOUT ABOUT THEIR GREAT FEATURES AND EASE OF USE, [NOT ONE] COME ANYWHERE CLOSE TO SERVING AS AN ADEQUATE REPLACEMENT FOR QUICKFOX NOTES [EXCEPT ONE]. SO WE COME TO MY WOE, BECAUSE THE ONLY REPLACEMENT I WANT FOR QUICKFOX IS "OPENOTE"!!! NO, I DID NOT SAY ONENOTE" AND THERES THE RUB. I HAVE SPENT HOURS SEARCHING AND GOING AROUND IN CIRCLES TRYING TO FIND OPENOTE THE SECOND TIME.

Hello, I 'm amongst the people that reverted back to Firefox 56 after the Quantum update for the add-ons alone. (mainly Classic Theme Restorer and NoScript) I would like to know if there is a way to install Quantum along with v56 on the same windows 10 PC.

Having both versions installed will allow me to continue using my favorite add-ons, while monitoring Quantum for new updates and add-ons , trying to customize it to my liking and hopefully stick with it at some point.

Thanks in advance.

An earlier discussion of how to do Tabs on Bottom under the new Firefox included suggestions that were too complicated for me. Has any progress occurred since then to make Tabs on Bottom easier now?

Note: My current browser is FF 56.0.2; my operating system is Windows 10.

I’ve always used Tabs on Bottom, which to my mind is much easier than having to search on top, farther away from the main screen. Firefox has once again stymied me and many others by bringing on a new version which, among other things, does not allow for Tabs on Bottom, nor does Classic Restorer work for this. So I’ve been using version 56 since then, but I know it’s not a good idea to avoid updates for too long.

The earlier discussion basically advised to just live with it. If I have to have Tabs on Top, then maybe I’ll just switch to Chrome, which I’ve heard is better in other respects, at least since I have an Android phone. However, even though Firefox hasn’t treated me very well, I have used it for a number of years and like it a lot in the past.

PS: It seems to be harder to Ask the Community than it used to. I posted this question first on what appeared afterward to be a developer forum. Maybe this is the same site, in which case i've posted a duplicate, but I'm not sure. It seems to me that FF is getting less and less user-friendly.

How do I find the current height of the tab bar (#TabsToolbar)? I know, for example, that there are properties --tab-min-height, but my tab bar is in a few rows, so I need to know either the number of rows or just its current height. In addition, this height can change when I add or remove tabs. How can I catch this event and recalculate the parameters I need? Thank you very much for your help, I'm a beginner ...

Windows 7pro is my operating system.

I have ~ 1mb of Bookmarks organized and saved in v.56; however, v.57+ as far as I can tell will destroy my organization.

Why should I destroy 20+ years of organization based on the requirements of my work?

And why can't Mozilla provide the option of maintaining older versions of Bookmarks and the Toolbar?

Seems like you've destroyed a wonderful product to cater to the game-playing millennials and sacrifice those of use you do real work!!

ps: I learned to program using Assembler, Fortran II on 4k, 8k and 16k computers. I do not surf the net nor belong to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or any of the other data-steeling trash websites.

Life is fine using DuckDuckGo, Ghoastery, https everywhere and common sense!!!
