Why did Mozilla remove the disabled add-on fixes for older Firefox versions & where are they now?

Mozilla created them, made them available, advertised them & their location but after a short while removed them!! WTF?!?!?

In particular I'm looking for the disabled-add-on-fix-52-56. Please put all three of them back online for Firefox users ASAP.

Thanks.

I get the Error code: 2S119/1 when I want to sign up to the Briskoda website after putting in my username and password. This error code did not come up in FF 52 ESR and it also does not come up in Waterfox.

Does anyone know what is different or has changed from FF 52 to FF 56 that FF 56 throws up this error?

As I understand it, FF will soon start updating regardless of my settings. I have my update set to "Never", but it sounds as if I will no longer have say in all of this mess.

The most important feature for me is the old Tab Groups V. 2.1.4. It by far the biggest time-saver I have. Without this, I would have a heck of a time manually bringing up various tabs all the time and it would entirely foul up my schedule.

How do I keep TB from automatically updating?

Anyone know a replacement for the Tab Groups that could just take my existing tabs (over 100) and use them w/o doing it manually?

Thanks!

It seems that there isn't an add on out there for Firefox that mimics the download status bar like in Chrome-based browsers. Not one of them are able to open files from the status bar. All of them open a window for what ever reason. Is it because bad coding on the add on dev part, or is this a limitation of Firefox itself. If it is the former, where can I start and work backwards to make one myself. If it is the later, will this ever be a feature?

I have an urgent problem. I am about to loose access to my existing primary and secondary emails, as i have been forced to try to change to a new email provider. I set up with Gmail and it was working fine until I updated windows on the 20th. Now I cannot log in I get the following error massage:

Corrupted Content Error The site at https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?pli=1 has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the data transmission was detected. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I have searched online and deleted my google cookies and cleared my cache without effect. I am getting desperate to get this fixed. My new ISP does not provide email addresses but I need two of them one for myself and one for my mother. I have been told that my existing emails my be deleted as early as 30th March 2021. I have been trying to get these new emails in place for nearly three months and I feel like this is the last straw.

I know I am using an old version of Firefox, but I need to keep my old style extensions as I use them to help me with my visual disability.

Yours Desperately, Kaelkitty

Generally, my Waterfox browser is great. Except when browsing Facebook pages. I'm at that site a lot, and if I'm uploading pictures, and roaming from page to page, after awhile the browser will slow down, or not respond at all > Task manager > Close browser > Restart > Repeat (a half hour or so later). I have absolutely no problems with any other sites I visit with this browser, just Facebook (and no problems with Facebook using Chrome or Edge). Thoughts and/or suggestions gratefully accepted. Thank you.

I was transferring my data from an older version of Firefox to the new version and always have enabled Firefox sync.

While setting up the new browser, I uninstalled an extension that had my settings from the new browser and it was automatically uninstalled from the older browser too.

Since I use Firefox sync, I want to know if it's possible to restore a restore the extension data from a specific time (before I deleted it). Trying to sync only restores it after the extension was deleted.
