Hello. I have Firefox set to notify me of new updates but though I always download them I don't immediately install them. My current version is 88.0.1.

Today I downloaded what I now know to be the all-new complete revamp version. But I don't want to install it on my main PC until I've looked into a little more and perhaps tried it out on a laptop.With it in

Is there a way of removing the downloaded version? With it in place, if I restart Firefox or reboot the computer it will automatically be installed, and I don't want that to happen just yet.

I'm running Windows 7 on a desktop PC.

Many thanks.

Every time I try to open Firefox it asks me for permission to install Firefox Software Updater. I then say no and Firefox opens with a notification to update to the latest version. I opted out from updates but the only option available is for the Firefox to ask before updating, there is no option to opt out definitively. Is there any solution to stop notifications and installing attempts?

Thanks in advance

I do like the ability to customize web pages using usercontent.css. I wonder whether this capability still exists in FF 89. I may become a crotchety old guy and stay on 88 if that feature has gone away.

If I open a new tab the whole application will freeze but video will still play in the background so the actual browser hasn't crashed, so to speak. Everything else on my terminal is fine, I can open everything no problem and continue with my business. Sometimes it will solve itself and sometimes I need to kill the application. It's nothing to do with resources. I've recently upgraded my laptop and I did not experience it on my old one. I have an i711 so the CPU is more than quick enough to handle the processes and 16GB of RAM, so memory is not the problem either. As far as I can see, it is do with Firefox. The add ons I have are all approved by Mozilla so I would assume they're not the problem either.

This hiccup only occurs when I open a new tab and it is not consistent and difficult to predict when it will happen. It's like the laptop doesn't have the available resources to open up the new tab- but it does, more than enough.

I had a look through the help articles and couldn't find one that applies to my situation. I will try to capture it the next time it happens and post the screenshot.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi,

Am I the only one plagued with an issue about the option "View" > "Toolbars" > "Bookmarks Toolbar" > "Only Show on new Tab" ?

It finally used to work until version 88

(prior to that I had to use custom css tricks)

With 89, it does not work anymore

Hi, I accidentally DLed FF88 without checking the details w/r/t functionality.

Several of the changes severely compromise my ability to use FF for my job.

Examples are the 'view image' which is now gone from right-click and replaced with 'open image in new tab' --this disrupts my work flow. And 'save image to pocket' etc is not useful for me, but happens to be right where I normally click on another function.

Is there a relatively seamless way to undo the FF88 'upgrade' ? TIA

Hello, I have one page on my website which is not loading. You keep on seeing the loading dot. I asked other people to check on their Firefox to check and also their is does not load. On other browsers (Safari, Chrome) it works. I downloaded Firefox on my iPad and there it works.

I recently updated FireFox to it's new version and added add-ons. Usually, when an add-on gets added, it shows immediately on the top left on the toolbar. (in videos and articles). However it doesn't display on mine. I did some research and found another method: customize toolbar -> drag the add-on to the toolbar. That didn't work either because no add-ons displays when i enter customize toolbar. Instead, there's an add-ons icon to drag. Dragging it on the toolbar and clicking on it doesn't do anything. I also read that if the toolbar is full there would be a + icon and when i click on it add-ons shows up. (my toolbar is actually empty and i don't have a + icon). So yeah, i'm left with no solutions. Appreciate some help and suggestions.

When viewing a job on Indeed, whether on a pane or a separate tab, the application menu fails to load when I click 'Apply Now'. The connection times out after a while. It even takes an awful time to go back (reload) to the page!

When I reported this Indeed Support, they recommended using Google Chrome as their site "tends to work best on it". I can now confirm that the issue does not arise with Chrome.

I have tried pretty much everything on this page: Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can

I even reinstalled Firefox but it is so smart, it realized the fact and prompted me to refresh and now we are back where we left off.

I have a Windows XP machine kept solely to run those applications that wont run under Windows 10, and there are several.

It has a hardware switch that removes access to my network and is only connected briefly to print to my network printer then disconnected as the default. It does allow access to the Internet but that is only ever to one particular site, nominally once per year.

One program requires a yearly update to an internal text file from its parent organization. Previously all I had to do was briefly connect to my network access that file from that organization using the Firefox version on the XP machine to download that file directly to the program that needs it.

I tried that this week May 2021 only to receive an error message from somewhere to "Try Internet Explorer".

I have a workaround solution involving my W10 machine and a thumb drive to transfer that 1K text file manually, but the process of direct transfer to the XP machine used to work, and is much more convenient.

What has changed, such that the Firefox version on the XP machine no longer works?

Ideas please.

Hi, I need to use alt+scroll to zoom in and out on a website I use regularly. However, often, I will use alt+scroll to zoom out and end up leaving the session as firefox backs out to the previous page. This means that I have to spend a long time logging back in and loading my page.

I have tried shortkeys, but it doesn't seem to support modifying shortcuts using the scroll wheel.

How can I disable this shortcut?

Thank you.
