1. почему мой браузер, сам, самопроизвольно обновляется до последней версии? меня это нервирует. При Условии, что в настройках стоит запрет на обновление. Никогда не проверять на обновления. Почему? 2. дальше. при условии что даже стоит последняя версия. как убрать эту табличку? https://support.mozilla.org/ru/kb/chto-znachit-oshibka-pri-ustanovlenii-zashishyonno 3. недолго пользовался последней версией. и скажу что на последней версии, в вк, видео и трансляции лагают, плохо отображаются. в то время как старая версия 50.1.0 с видео в вк всё нормально. не лагает, и нормально всё идёт. и той таблички нет. так что для меня преимущество в старой версии, чем в новой.. табличка мешается, не выводит списки.. видео лагает, трансляции лагают.. тьфу, лучше уж старую.

жду ответа от тех. поддержки.

А НЕ ОТ ПОЛЬЗОВАТЕЛЕЙ.

I work in video editing, and find this to be a constant issue. I am often times showing new cuts to colleges, watching videos for research, editing video, or even just trying to relax, and it will pop-up regardless of what is happening.

I don't want it to update in the background without permission. I don't necessarily always want the newest version. I don't always have time to run the instillation while running my work stuff on my computer. I don't mind having to dig through menus when/if I need to update it, but I will do that on my own.

I have really liked using Firefox, but this is becoming more spam-y then some websites for me (and those even won't go over playing video). Is there a just, "Don't show this again" checkbox that I am not seeing or something?

I will have to switch to another browser because of the interrupted workflow problems with it, which is not ideal for me. I really hope there is just a simple solution that I don't know about.

Thanks!

Hi Firefox support, I am having trouble with Firefox,on my Windows 8.1 64 bit; was using version 53.0.3 and occasionally crashing, then would not even start in safe mode. Upgrading to a later version 54.0.1and an then earlier version 50.0.1 did not help- crashing just the same on startup. I have kept antiviral software and scans up to date. Also tried Windows Repair System Files with sfc.exe. Here is the crash report ID: bp-750d516e-1705-44fd-be90-1a4961171117 Thank you for your help, In appreciation, Philip

I have been a loyal and dedicated Firefox user as long as I can remember.

What always made Firefox the best for me was the same thing that made Windows beat other rivals and the same thing that made the iPhone a success, THE APPS.

Now it seems that Firefox is moving in a direction I cannot follow, V58 or whatever they are calling it.

So with each new release I am finding Firefox more and more unstable, runaway memory leaks that take just 5 minutes to use all memory on my system and then crash Firefox and worse than anything my trusted firefox extensions are stoppong working.

Well I can't take anymore, Either I freeze Firefox and keep all my extensions in a relatively stable environment or I use a fork of Firefox.

I would rather stay with Firefox I must prepare for the alternative because it seems to me that the powers that be seem determined to wreck it with this directional change.

So can anyone advise which forks are worth considering?

Do any of them support the existing extension platform?

I am sorry this is not considered an appropriate question, if it is deleted I will ask it elsewhere on other forums, I have considered even writing a blog about the demise of Firefox.

It makes me really sad to see it ruined in this way.

I have taken and uploaded a screenshot to Firefox Screenshots tool, then I downloaded the image to my computer. I then decided I wanted it deleted because it had sensitive data on it that could violate my privacy (seeing it is accessible by someone who can link to it - AKA access is public for those with a link). When I attempted to delete it, I received error message "Error deleting shot." The same occurred with attempting to save expiration date to 10 minutes for example, "Error saving expiration." I cannot even view the screenshot in list of "My Shots." Therefore, I have no choice but to let it stay on the server for 12 days more of time it has left or can someone help me have it deleted immediately? I really need to have that deleted.

What I'm Trying to Do: import bookmarks (from an HTML file) from my old PC's Firefox to my new PC's Firefox. The Problem: whenever I attempt this (following the steps outlined in this site's article, "Import Bookmarks from an HTML file"), Firefox's Library window won't close, and trying to close it causes Firefox to stop responding. What I've Tried: creating a new version of my bookmarks file; restarting. (Neither worked.)

Note: my only goal here is to import my bookmarks; if this can be done from something other than an HTML file, or via another method, that's fine (I just used this one because I'd done it successfully in the past, and the process seemed relatively simple).

Also, my tech skills are modest at best, so newbie-level solutions would be much appreciated.

Thanks for your assistance.

All pull-down items get disabled a while after FireFox starts (55 (64bit) Windows 7)

Probably after upgrading FF to 55 (64bit) on Windows 7, all pull-down items get disabled a while after FF is started.

The affected items include not only the web page pull-down menus but also FF's own menu bar items, tab browser (the tiny downward triangle far right to the tabs), "Open menu" button (the three thick horizontal bars rightmost in the tool bar), etc., almost everything. Some web page pull-down items still work, but they are probably in different CSS/JS/HTML coding. The menu bar shortcuts (e.g. alt-T for Tools) become unresponsive, too.

Everything works fine right after FF is started, but, a while after, varying from a few minutes to a few hours, all FF windows start suffering this symptom simultaneously. Restarting FF resumes the good, but the symptom returns a while after. Starting FF in Safe Mode makes no difference; neither does restarting OS. User activity on FF (e.g. typing and clicking into FF) does not seem to affect the symptom; leaving FF untouched at all for a while after starting FF also leads to the symptom. No other applications running concurrently on the same PC suffer this.

55 (64bit) on Windows 10 works fine.

For many years, I've been using the great feature "zoom" to view websites, it was simply amazing that firefox would remember the zoom level of each individual site, so when I re-visited the sites would instantly appear great on my monitor.

Unfortunately, this worked up until firefox 54, once I upgraded to firefox 56, the zoom feature no longer remembers each websites zoom level :( now I have to manually re-zoom each site over and over again.

I know that there are plugins out there to do simulate this feature, but I don't trust 3rd-party plugins and I would prefer to have this feature native in firefox like before.

Thank you.


PS: I'm using Fedora 26 Linux, the affected package is: firefox-56.0-2.fc26.x86_64 and browser.zoom.siteSpecific is set to true (the default).

Firefox keeps telling me there is an updated version (I currently have version 50.0.2) on my Mac (OS Sierra Version 10.12.6). It's not automatically updating, and when I try to manually update it, it says I don't have permission to do it. This is my home personal computer, and I'm entering the correct Administrator password, but it still won't download the update.
