For unfortunate reasons too tedious and mundane to discuss here, I am stuck with Mac/OS 10.11.6. I am looking for a version of Firefox that will run under that version of Mac/OS. I did the basic research and was directed Firefox version 78. After that, I was directed to the Extended Support Release. When I downloaded and ran that, I was directed to the Apple App Store where no version of Firefox could be found. Where to next?

Can someone offer me a link to a version of Firefox that I can download and run on Mac/OS 10.11.6? Please.

WebGL has stopped working. I think this has happened with Firefox 91.

For example, http://webglsamples.org/aquarium/aquarium.html gives the error Status: WebGL creation failed: * tryNativeGL () * Exhausted GL driver options. (FEATURE_FAILURE_WEBGL_EXHAUSTED_DRIVERS)

I'm running Firefox on Debian on ChromeOS.

On about:support, WebGL 1 Driver Renderer: Red Hat -- virgl WebGL 2 Driver Rendered: Red Hat -- virgl

There are no WebGL errors in about:support

I've tried the Troubleshoot Mode but that made no difference.

I just refreshed firefox because it was constantly hanging. However, my library icon is now missing. I have the bookmark star in the address bar but I no longer have the Library icon in the ribbon. When I click on the menu bar Bookmarks is shown but Library is not. When I click on Bookmarks I see a list of saved sites, but that's not a convenient way to get to them. Does anyone know how to get the Library icon back?

Thank you

Alright, basically I backed up my PC before I wiped it. Then decided to move from chrome to firefox. But there is an issue, I can't migrate my passwords because google chrome will not read my old LOGIN DATA file and refuses to create a CSV either. So basically I can't import about a decade worth of passwords into firefox because of a flaw in chrome's design, fantastic.

So I thought, well, surely if there are program that let you read SQL files (such as the LOGIN DATA file) if you have the password, firefox must be able to do this to right? Well no. Apparently not.

I am not sure if this is the correct place to formally request a QoL feature but I would really, REALLY, like to be able to import my passwords directly from chrome's LOGIN DATA file, I have the master password.

It was my mistake to back up my files thinking that would be enough, I should have known better and double checked if chrome could not read its own native files. But now im screwed. Help. Please.

Hi all After update 90.0.2 installed on my computer, FIrefox started flickering all the time a new page gets opened. I have never had such a problem before, nor I had any hardware change in the last two months. I tried several proposed solutions concerning flickering like refreshing, disabling hardware acceleration etc. but nothing helps. I wonder what happened in 90.0.2 which caused that. I just installed update 91.0 and the flickering still persists.

I am using Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit on a Dell Vostro 3750 Laptop if that matters. Thank you

When they updated to 89, large spaces were created in between the bookmarked web sites when the window unfolds. So the bookmarks at the bottom don't fit in the window, and to get to the ones I can't see, I have to click the arrow at the bottom. But making it worse, is that if I do go to the bottom, the next time I open the bookmark tab, the list will open at the bottom (it doesn't revert to the top). So I'd have to scroll up to get to the ones at the top.

I list my bookmarks in the order they're in so I can get to the ones I go to most often as fast as possible. So they're at the top - I don't have to scroll far to get to them. I also use the "Other Bookmarks" tab since that's at the top. But sometimes that's hidden and I have to scroll up to get to access that as well.

Also, this update changed the size of the command windows - the copy/paste window, the "open in new tab" window, and the window to get the correct spelling of the word. They're so big, they run from the top of the screen to bottom, instead of a small square. So you'll have to scroll way up to get to the command or word you want.

I can't stand this.

There was a simple work-around. Changing the proton preferences to false. But they removed them with 90. I posted a message on these boards a few weeks ago asking for them not to be removed. Of course it didn't do any good.

There supposedly is a "fix" to this, but it has to do with CSS - whatever the heck that is and I'm not even going to attempt to figure it out. Fixing this should NOT be complicated at all (like the proton preferences). And besides, even that CSS thing won't bring everything back to what is was. So why bother?

More scrolling, bigger command windows, etc., are not that big of a deal, but that's not the point. Why can't they leave well enough alone? What part of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," do they not understand? If I wanted a tedious way to access my bookmarks, I'd use Chrome!

I know it won't happen, but how can we get them to reset the bookmarks and command windows back to the way they were? Is that asking too much? Ask a silly question...

If their objective is to lose Firefox users, congratulations. It just might work.

Is there a way to return to the more slimmed-down tabs and menus design of before? Because the latest update has all my menus double-spaced, and they're so bloated now that it's really hard to find anything with half the information spread out to take double the space.

To fix this, I have tried other users' suggestions of disabling proton, which had worked previously but no longer seems to have any effect as of the latest update. I have also tried the "compact menus" workaround, but that doesn't affect the double-spacing within the drop-down menus themselves.

I use html pages on an internal hard drive that link to pdf documents. For some reason since Version 91.0.2 was installed I can not get the pdf documents to open with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.The new version insist on opening the pdf's in the Firefox web browser. When I click on a pdf link at an external website the files will open in Adobe Acrobat. I used the code below to test the open in Adobe Acrobat execution and it works on the w3School example. When I run it strait from my hard drive the document opens in the Firefox web browser.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Title of the document</title>

  <body>

Please let me know if there is a solution. Thank you,

This issue is with me for some time now I guess 6 to 12 months, I have circumvented it by simply using other browsers that don't have the issue, it is only in Firefox.

I have noticed that it seems to be a reoccurring issue for many people reading through help topics.

At the moment I am using: Mozilla Ubuntu Firefox 91.0

 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:91.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/91.0

Starting Firefox in "Safe mode/Troubleshooting mode" through the "Application menu" -> "Help" -> "Troubleshoot Mode", doesn't fix the problem.

... "Did you check the date/time and time zone on your computer?" (As suggested in an older topic)

Automatic synchronization with an Internet time server, is set to "ON"
My "Time Zone" is set manually set to the correct "Time Zone"

Since the issue is only in Firefox and not in Chrome, Chromium or Opera, there is something that Firefox is doing that Cloudflare doesn't like or visa versa....

I have noticed in other posts that the blame is simply shifted to Cloudflare, but why do other browsers then not have this problem ?

Opening the no longer existing website (from another help topic here about the same issue), that is still known by Cloudflare, shows the problem if you got it too -> http://animedao.com/

See my uploaded screenshot to see it is only in Firefox.
