When trying to install addons from Firefox addons management menu (tab 'about:addons'), they not downloads. and Firefox says 'addon can not be loaded because connection problem'.

When trying open 'https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/' have 'PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR'.

I am thinking the reason of this errors is blocking requests to 'addons.mozilla.org' by my internet provider (Beeline Kazakhstan). Because when I trying to connet to 'addons.mozilla.org' using VPN or proxy I have no problems described above.

I have no idea why this internet provider or goverment needs to block host 'addons.mozilla.org' (they love to block various website just fo fun). May you help me bypass this problem? May be you know the way how to install VPN addon offline for Mozilla Firefox whithout acces to addons webpage.

Sorry for my English and thank you for reading (:

Please don't interfere with websites by "warning" me about white supremacy or facts. I don't need or want your input. I'd hate to abandon Firefox after all these years.

I read an article stating Mozilla management is actually considering jumping on virtue signaling bandwagon by "warning" me about their opinion on sites they decide aren't trustworthy. For the record, I'm an independent that shares both left and right views. I loathe the idea of "safety" or 'the children" BS arguments to fiddle with my data or have you inject your opinion in any way.

If it happens, goodbye forever and I'll cheer on whatever replaces you if they do it right.

I shouldn't have any idea about the political views for a service like this. Shame on you all for not having the discipline to just do the job. Hope it's worth the cost.

A piece of software I need to use for work requires an older version of Firefox (Firefox 68.4.2 ESR) to run, so in the past, I've had to delete Firefox and re-download the older version which has worked fine. However, I recently got a new Mac and now when I try the same thing it's not working. Whenever I first open Firefox after downloading it, it opens as the correct (older) version, however it does not seem to be able to connect to the internet and I get the spinning wheel that never ends, and then whenever I close out of Firefox and reopen it, it automatically updates to the newest version. I have multiple times gone into the settings on Firefox and changed my preferences to check with me before installing updates and I've gone into the settings of the App Store to make sure it's not automatically updating any apps or programs. My computer is currently running OS version 11.1 (Big Sur) and I'm wondering if maybe this version is too new to be compatible with Firefox 68 ESR? Any help, ideas, or advice is greatly appreciated!

Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

The following is a screenshot of my Firefox browser. Included is a BULLSHIT "Other Bookmarks" tab that has displaced existing custom bookmarks. This is >NOT< helpful. I want this crap gone, and control of my toolbar returned to ME. How do I remove this tab from the toolbar? And don't tell me it's an upgrade to the browsing experience. If I wanted to group items with a shortcut on the toolbar I would have done so. Note that I already have two groups on the toolbar. I know what I'm about. Give my back my toolbar with the custom bookmarks that >I< require.

Hi there,

Occasionally (every half hour or so) I will notice there are two Firefox browsers open (I use nightly), one which I am using and another that fills half the screen but is stuck as if it were trying to load up. It cannot be closed or minimized unless the 'Firefox has crashed' message pops up, I was wondering if this is an issue faced before and can be fixed or something new?

Thanks

I noticed when I try to click on a link to print something the printing dialogue will be kind of out of focus (hidden) so I can't do anything but press ESC to get out of it. When I scale the Firefox window to a smaller size it works as intended. On my 2560x1440 screen it works in all window sizes. Only on my 3840x2160 screen this happens when the window is maximized. Would be nice if somebody could fix this! Thank you! Firefox 84.0.2 (64-Bit) Win 10.

When viewing for example the Guardian international site , there is always a kind of a slideshow in the most important topic. Today for example Biden und a bunch of pictures Trump leaving. Sometimes i like to have a closer look on one of pictures. There is no copy/save image than. I like to have a kind of pause button to interrupt the playing. Im running linux/ubuntu, but on win10 the same. So I use the Print button to make a hardcopy, but this is not very "elegant". Any suggestions ? It's not a kind of blocking a popup.

Firefox slows down or even freezes for a longer time when I am typing in text in forms (like new GMAIL messages, search boxes, etc). Especially when I make mistakes and delete some.

I have Refreshed Firefox and removed the Adblocker add-on, which I thought might cause the problem, but the problem persists.
