How can I switch from the beta version of Firefox to the regular one without uninstalling or installing anything to keep from losing my addons and preferences?

Web site decision makers:

If an upper case letter and a number and eight characters are arbitrarily REQUIRED for a password in order to create an account, then SAY SO in the first place. Don't say that the password "should" include them, when obviously it SHOULD NOT have any requirement at all. Don't wait till I make a correct, usable password in spite of your stupid suggestions, and then tell me you changed your mind and I am now forced to make a useless temporary password after I have already memorized the usable one.

The user of the account should be the one who decides what the password will be, NOT some geek who has obviously has not ever lived a single moment of real life. If you can't at least emulate the thought processes of a normal person, you should not make decisions about requirements that will be inflicted on normal people.

Best solution: Allow people to ask questions without having to "create accounts" in the first place. I don't want to marry you or have your children. I just want to solve problems caused by your broken software.

Thanks.

I watch a lot of youtube videos and i open a lot of them in a short time. Not so long ago Firefox implemented this feature where when i opened a video in a new tab the video wouldn't start until i clicked on the new tab. The site would still load and all but the video would only start if i clicked on the tab. ("Load on tab select"-addon is not for me ) If i open a video in my current tab i want it to start right away just like normal. ("media.autoplay.enabled" option is not for me) Now (Jan. 2017) this wonderful function Firefox had is gone. What happened? I'm pretty sure i changed no settings. How get this function back?

I exported my bookmarks in .html before reinstalling my system. Now i can't import them by import and backup > import bookmarks from html. Nothing happens, they aren't even imported all in 1 folder which has happened before. I also tried to replace the .json file in "bookmarksbackup" folder in the "profiles" folder and then deleted the places.sqlite file and then started firefox again, but that didnt fix it either. When i open the .html file in the browser, it shows all the links properly and i can click on them all. I should also mention that the file is fairly large, around 37 000 kb.

Intermittently throughout the day one of my tabs goes to this screen. Windows Defender is up to date and finds no spam. Firefox is up to date. I use only a zoom plugin, and firebug.

It's obviously spam, but I have no idea how to remove it. I believe the URL is the same each time this happens.

Here's the URL: https://johphblogger-hints-and-tips.org/3741102690684/b948933059dbdadbd309290dc9643b16/94272f1a1bcce04dd866c0e350504ccc.html

Screenshot also included.

51.0 default to Bing and I wanted to change it back to Google. Changing the setting for Search to Google didn't help it automatically switches to Bing! I even deleted firefox made sure nothing was left behind and reinstalled but same issue. I don't care for Microsoft so my assumption here is that Microsoft is paying Mozilla for Bing to be the default search engine?

I get an error message to send you a crash report every time I try to open Firefox. I can't even re-install because the .exe immediately fails. I tried to add a screenshot image of the pop-up below, but it wouldn't load. Sadly, I had to switch to IE (yuck), so for now I have lost all of my bookmarks, too.
