Hi: I am trying to decide do I just totally give up on Firefox after all these years and move to Chrome or is there some logical path for addons planned/in process that I do not know about.

It is like Firefox Management Team/Committee team made this technical decision with little understanding on the impact to the developers that had put in hard yards for years, or users who had been using these addons. I am at a loss when I try to understand why would they jeopardise so much.

Since Firefox went to that "new firefox", sorry I dont know the technical lingo, most of the addons I use became unavailable. I have since written to each developer to ask, will they be upgrading their addon and the answer is NO. So basically Firefox is only useful to me if

  • I stay in the old version on Mac Sierra OSX (55.0.3).
  • For the new windows 10 brand new laptop I tried also to create using the new Firefox and it was very unsuccessful as there are no addons even close to what I was using.

For the Cookies controller there are some close but nothing as good as this addon in terms of how I used it -- manually removed cookies.

On my Mac Firefox 55.0.3, I have the following addons (all these have the LEGACY yellow highlight tag in the list)

1 Cookie Controller

2 Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar

3 Session Manager

4 New Add On Bar

5 Add Bookmarks Here

6 Change Bookmark Recent Folder List Length

7 Open Bookmarks in New Tab

8 Download Status Bar

9 AutoPin Tab

10 Close Tab Button

11 Tab Open/Close Control

12 and uBlock Origin I cannot update as it says on its webpage, with this technical change, it is not supported, so not upgrade it.

Any practical advice?

I have 2 computers, both running Win7 SP1 (32 bit).

Computer 1 has been running FF 56.0b12 for a long time.

I installed the same version on computer 2, but cannot install the "TabMixPlus" extension.

I tried to copy over the profile located in C:\users\Mark\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\672nu82s.default.

This did appear to place the extensions in the add-ons list, but the extension does not work.

Since these are identical Win7 versions, and also identical FF versions, how can I solve this issue?

I'd like to copy over FF entirely from computer 1 to computer 2 including all extensions and permissions so as to get TabMix Plus to work?

Thanks, Mark.

Почему не приходят от вас письма на мэйл ру? Что делать в этом случае и возможно ли разблокировать эккаунт оперативно, чтобы я мог синхронизировать все данные на новом устройстве? Возможно ли поменять "вручную" адрес почты, если ваши письма не доходят на старую? или подтвердить по номеру телефона например?

It appears that Firefox has blocked windows explorer. I use Vista business but want to upgrade to windows 7. I also get messages that say that I need to install Apple application support but cannot do this either. I have deleted I tunes as a temporary measure because I know this will be a necessary action before upgrading Windows. Thanks for any help.

Is there a way to limit the version of Firefox ESR that will be received? For example, lock only the minors updates. Or hang a specific update.

I would like to receive updates normally through the browser, but I can not make them available at the same time that they are available to the public.

There is this setting in Google Chrome.
