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 community, would anyone kindly help me with this issue I'm facing? How do I export Logins and Passwords on Firefox running 78.10.1esr (64-bit) on a Mac. The export funtion is not available here and I know the this option is only available on 79 and after, but I'm using a mid 2012 Mac Pro running 78.10.1esr. Is there any way I could still export the logins?

Thank you kindly.

A week ago, a bad update download trashed Windows 10. I had the operating system reloaded but have been unable to recover my Firefox profiles. (Nor my Thunderbird profiles either.) I downloaded the older profiles from my Carbonite account, but even tho they are in the Profiles directory, the Firefox profiles manager does not recognize them (i.e. they don't show up in the listing of profiles.) It's really frustrating since I need my bookmarks for work. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

I downloaded and installed the firefox app and nothing happens. No menu. No tabs. The word "firefox" appears in the upper left corner of my screen and a "." appears under the app, indicating that it is open. The screen "blinked" momentarily when I opened the app. I am a longtime user of Firefox and this same thing happened this morning when I opened the app, which I uninstalled, and then downloaded and installed this new app. Same problem.

I have 88.0.1 installed in c:/program_files/mozilla and in users/myname/appdata/local/mozilla. Don't know how that happened but how do I resolve this. When I go into Win 10 apps to delete the installations and order a new one for custom install, I am not given an option to remove, only to refresh. And also one installation shows in Win 10, not two. The exe files are in both these locations. I understand the profiles are in the appdata area, so it seems I need to delete the files in the other location, somehow.

I'm trying to migrate my Firefox from a very old 42.0 version (where I was stuck due to valuable plugins discontinuity) to some actual version (Mac OS). Attempt to just install the latest version doesn't work because it cannot properly convert stored passwords and the places database.

From the support article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/lockwise-losing-login-information-firefox-update, I know that for passwords I should at least visit the intermediate version 68, which should be able to convert older passwords database.

What other upgrade points should I visit to successfully overcome the gap?
