Does Mozilla know this is happening or is this some kind of virus?

Liebes Mozilla-Team, ich schreibe auf Deutsch, da Muttersprache. In case of misunderstanding please contact me. Bis vor wenigen Monaten erschien automatisch bei Firefox-Start der Hinweis "letzte Sitzung wiederherstellen" mit allen zuletzt geöffneten Seiten. Das hab ich nun nicht mehr. Das Help-Tool ist leider unzureichend. Erstens scheint dieser Button https://support.mozilla.org/de/kb/sitzungswiederherstellung#w_wenn-sie-azvorherige-sitzung-wiederherstellenay-aus-dem-firefox-menak-wachlen in meiner Menüleiste nicht auf. Zudem habe ich bereits in meinen Einstellungen schrittweise nach Hilfetool alles korrekt vorgenommen. Hat es etwas mit anderen Einstellungen zu tun? Wo ich versehentlich etwas angehakt habe und es deshalb die Wiederherstellung sperrt? Bitte um Hilfe. DANKE.

For now I have disabled auto-updates and found the downgrade to 59.0 (64bit) and all is working okay.

I don't know how to trouble shoot this further, this is what I have done.

Allowed auto-updates and it went to 61.0.2 from ??? not sure what version. Lockups in Windows 7 Pro 64 bit began soon after. Most times Ctrl+Alt+Del would not work. Once in a while I could stop Firefox and it's processes running but eventually it would crash the Windows to a point where I would have to force a shutdown. (power off). My Wife's computer started the exact same thing.

In trying to fix this... We both uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Issues are the same. I installed the Beta Version 62.0b9. Issues are the same. I then backed-up my profile data and installed. 59.0 (64 bit) and appears to be well.

I assume there are some kind of error logs or something generated I can post to give better detail on what is happening. I feel confident I can switch back and forth between these versions if needed.

What more information can I give or things to test to help?

The default color purple for 'Visited links' is too close to the default blue for 'Unvisited links' and the difference is visible on my screen only at certain angles and certain intensities of ambient light. Changing the 'Visited links' color takes effect only when 'Override the colors specified by the page with your selections above' is set to 'Always'. But then the colors for 'Text', 'Background' and 'Unvisited links' are also changed, which results also in pictures not being shown. How can I change to color of 'Visited links' only, without changing anything else?

Current Version: Firefox 59.0.2

I had been using the solution provided by https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1212735 for a while, but now I've had a case where in spite of putting an apostrophe before a search term, Firefox still predicted a url and added www. and .net to the search term, leading to a nonexistent website instead of searching. This is, once again, ignoring browser.fixup.alternate.enabled.

I think the screenshot feature is pretty useful, so I'd like to keep it. However, as someone who uses the Developer Tools a lot, it is fairly frustrating to me that the FF Screenshots feature is added to the bottom of the context menu.

My question: Is it possible to remove FF Screenshots from the context menu, while keeping the feature itself active?

Is this "critical update" JUST about security or does it make half of the add-ons useless again?

Each time I update firefox, it seems useful add-ons like adblockers etc suddently are no longer compatible. No warning, no "undo" option - just "this doesn't work anymore".

There doesn't seem to be any way of working out how much damage each update causes - can you not give SOME guidance to help us work out whether we need to download - and for example if we need to export out password list with an add-on before you make sure it will never work again.

Just think the odd "Update Info" with a little blurb about what is involved and what is likely to stop working would be very helpful. As it is, it seems that if you need to use add-ons, people are increasingly suggesting Chrome.

Pity, I have been with FF for years - but it does seem other browsers don't seem to have the same amount of issues with add-ons suddenly failing after an update.
