OS: Windows 7 on notebook

Firefox automatically updated to version 88 After restarting the computer it says that FF88 is not compatible with the current version of OS. = Why did the update start under Win7 if it is not compatible with Win7? = How can I downgrade to a Win7 compatible version without losing any logins?

with unhappy regards

Since the start of the day, Firefox has been constantly crashing constantly. Usually when I try to click / open / load a new tab or page, but sometimes just leaving it open causes a crash. I've tried to reinstall twice, but no luck. Safe Mode also did not help, so I assume it has nothing to do with add-ons. I also did a "Refresh" but, again, nothing. I did a full system scan (BitDefender, if it matters) but it did not detect any malware. Lastly, I restarted the computer and Firefox still constantly crashes.

Here are the crash report logs:

The website, Radio Garden, doesn't even allow you to register, much less input passwords or credit cards. If any, the creator of this site only collects data for analysis reasons, that's really about it. Radio Garden is a site that lets you listen to radio stations around the world without the need of ever registering at all (and through mobile, users can pay a small fee to rid of intrusive ads, but not actual, radio station ads in which they have no control of). Can the guys at Firefox know that Radio Garden is NOT an illegitimate site and flag it as secure and safe instead? Thanks.

And yes, there have been sites that are flagged as false positive because Firefox, along with other browsers, like to get incredibly touchy for no apparent reason.

Firefox doesn't work correctly with Kaspersky Safe Money function but Edge and Chrome do!

I am currently running Windows 10 and Firefox 88.0.1 (64-bit) and Kaspersky Internet Security 21.3.10.391(b).

I have discovered an anomaly unique to Firefox which causes issues when using the Kaspersky Safe Money function for more than one website.

If you do not add the Kaspersky Protection add-on to both the Firefox normal browser window that you use for all browsing AND also to the Protected Browser window, when you try to open 2 or more websites that should have protected browers, you get a Run error when you try to open the 2nd website!

If you do add the Kaspersky Protection add-on to only the Firefox normal browser window, you still get a Run error when you try to open the 2nd website!

The reason this is unique to Firefox is that you do NOT need to add the Kaspersky Protection add-on/extension to either Chrome or Edge to make the Safe Money function work correctly for more than 1 website.

If you do add the Kaspersky Protection add-on/extension to Edge or Chrome, you only need to add it once, to the normal browser window, you do NOT need to add it to the protected browser window.

Surely this is a fault in Firefox and should be investigated and corrected or can someone explain why this happens with Firefox but not the other browsers.

I look forward to any information, advice etc that will help.

I posted this question before, and it got escalated, but there wasn't a resolution or fix suggested. I am hoping with more crash reports I can get some help finding a solution! Firefox is now crashing routinely - as in, many times each day. I am at my wits end! It's not profile-related as I sync my browser profiles and have no issues on my other computer. I did a clean install, and the crash frequently slowed for a while, but now I'm back to tearing my hair out. Please help!

Hi.

Why would you remove FTP? It's not obsolete, I use it for work, and a good one third of my browsing is easily ftp sites such as NetBSD.org, ftp.gnu.org and others. FTP is still used heavily.

I really really dislike that it's gone. I'd gladly spend 30-40$ a year for a paid version.

I've been using you guys back to Mozilla, Firebird, Netscape and even earlier ..possibly related was NCSA Mosaic. C'mon guys.. which Millenial decided FTP was obsolete and uncool because it was old? It's how most of the Open Source projects and distributions still move data around. :~( This is the first time since I started using Netscape/Mozilla/etc that you've ever done something I don't like. The last thing I want to do is be forced to use Chrome or some other garbage. Please.. bring it back or some sort of external module we can pay for to get browsing back. Please! I beg you. (Trying hard to be really civil and nice here ..truely baffled that it'd be removed).

Recently I have noticed that where there are drop down lists on websites I visit the drop down function no longer works properly if I am using the Firefox browser. If I click on the arrow in a drop down list box the list briefly appears then disappears almost immediately making impossible to select an option from that list. I don't have this problem if I use any other browser like Safari and the drop down list function used to work on Firefox, so presumably this is a bug unless there is something in preferences that needs changing. I am using v88.0.1 on mac OS Sierra 10.12.6. Any help wud be appreciated

I downloaded Scribus, an open source free page layout design application from https://www.scribus.net/

I can't open this application because I get a message that says: "'Scribus.app' can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer. Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the Mac App Store and identified developers.

I searched the Mac App Store and it does not have Scribus. I can't afford to subscribe to Adobe Creative Cloud and I need to be able to create page layout designs, which Scribus can do.

How can I verify that https://www.scribus.net/ is a secure application site? How can I open the application if it is a secure link?

Hey!

So I want to watch livestreams on YouTube (Overwatch League to be more precise). The problem is, that the stream starts to lag really hard when I watch it on 1080p or higher. I don't have that problem with videos, just with livestreams and my PC is not bad, my CPU, RAM or GPU are not even close to their limit as far as I can tell. Still, it doesn't work in Firefox but it does in Microsoft Edge. I definitely prefer Firefox over Edge but right now I have to use Edge to watch streams in HD+. I already came across a solution from 2019 where it said I need to install an addon, which would fix the problem but limits the quality to 1080p (https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1245735). However I thought maybe two years later there is a solution that allows me to watch streams in 2K and I mean Edge makes it possible too so I figured I'd just ask.

Thanks for your time Noah
