Session backup open windows and tabs BEFORE Update?

Hello,

I am currently running FF 59.0.1. The reason that I am still at this level is that the last update to to this level WIPED ALL my open windows and tabs forcing me to loose MANY hours of work. Being so burned I turned off FF automatic updates.

Now being hit with the loss of all of my add-ons due to the latest catastrophe it looks like I will have to upgrade to make them work once again. Neither the "xpinstall.signatures.required" hack or the now completed "study" did anything to fix the add-on issue.

So now I need a way to backup my open windows and tabs before updating FF. Obviously whatever method is used MUST be restorable to the current version in the case that it is needed.

Thanks, Steve

After reinstalling Firefox I now cant use hyperlinks in a document (although I can from an email) to open a browser page

I now can't use hyperlinks in a document (although I can from an email) to open a browser page. Instead I get the message "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator."

This wasn't happening before we uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox a few days ago to fix another problem. There have been Windows 10 updates recently, but they did not cause this problem. It started after we reinstalled Firefox.

I don't have a "system administrator" and I don't know what to do about it. Any suggestions?  This is the first time I have come across this problem. I don't use any other browser except IE occasionally.

I can't login to my former firefox account after a 'break' (deleting the Firefoxbrowser from my computer), then installed it again a while later. I have to admit I'm not totally sure where in Firefox I created my former login, if there is more than one place in the Firefox-webbrowser you can create an account so to say.. ? Also now I have some form of an account, created for to put this question, the one I used before was more about making Firefox more personalised as I recall it.

Thank you

Hi, recently my Windows 10 Pro 64 computer crashed and had to be reinstalled. At the time of the crash Firefox 32 bit was installed and during the reinstall I upgraded to Firefox 64. Since all my settings were saved in the 32 bit version is there any way to migrate those settings and saved addons, backgrounds, etc. into the new Firefox 64? If so please tell me the process and no I was not using Synch at the time of the crash... If not how do I get into Firefox my old addons and settings? I do have a backup of them from an older backup program "MozBackup" that i have been using for years...

Thanks.

Bookmarks: "new folder" selection closes prior to naming

When I Bookmark a page, I got to Bookmarks Menu/Choose/New Folder......as soon as "New Folder" shows, it closes and retains the name "New Folder" without allowing me time to name it. I have to go back to Bookmarks tab/Show All Bookmarks, and delete all of the New Folder folders created, go back and try it again. If I'm really quick, I can get one letter in before the option closes so I end up with a folder titled "r"......go back to Show All Bookmarks and rename "r" folder to the name I want. EXTREMELY time consuming and annoying.....this doesn't happen on my Win7 Desktop version, only my new Win10 Laptop. Please help!!
