A piece of software I need to use for work requires an older version of Firefox (Firefox 68.4.2 ESR) to run, so in the past, I've had to delete Firefox and re-download the older version which has worked fine. However, I recently got a new Mac and now when I try the same thing it's not working. Whenever I first open Firefox after downloading it, it opens as the correct (older) version, however it does not seem to be able to connect to the internet and I get the spinning wheel that never ends, and then whenever I close out of Firefox and reopen it, it automatically updates to the newest version. I have multiple times gone into the settings on Firefox and changed my preferences to check with me before installing updates and I've gone into the settings of the App Store to make sure it's not automatically updating any apps or programs. My computer is currently running OS version 11.1 (Big Sur) and I'm wondering if maybe this version is too new to be compatible with Firefox 68 ESR? Any help, ideas, or advice is greatly appreciated!

Bug 513418 suggests that private browsing windows are meant to use a dark theme, like Chrome, but this doesn't appear to be the case. Without this it's hard for me to quickly tell the difference between a normal window and a private window.

Is this an intentional change, or is a bug preventing private windows from using a dark theme?

In Wordpress, the editor tool menu at the top of the screen normally sticks to the top of the page. But in Firefox, it will disappear or scroll up with the rest of the page. This is not supposed to happen and doesn't in any other browser we've tested.

Resizing and refreshing the page may temporarily work, but the problem returns.

Similar to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1257374 NZ cell phone numbers have 8 to 10 digits (no country code, first two digits are 02). Firefox only accepts 10 digits for some crazy reason. Such a stupid restriction: Just accept any number, including country code. My number has 9 digits. What do I do now?

The justification "we do it because it was the easiest to implement w/o trying to iterate through the list of countries to find a possible match. It was the easiest path forward to getting the feature shipped." in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1468338 is weak at best.

Listen, the only reason I'm typing this here is because there's no live chat/support email for me to send this to. I don't care for help, I don't even care if there's an easy solution to my problem, the fact that it exists is insane. This browser, if left unclosed for a few hours, uses WHATEVER left over space is left on my ram sticks. I have 32gb of ddr4 ram, this means that if I have 18gb/s of ram available in my machine FIREFOX RUNS AT 18/gb A DANG SECOND. That is sinfully high, I know for a fact it's just taking up whatever space is left because if it ran at even a fraction of that memory usage it would be completely useless on almost every computer in the entire world. I'd also like to point out that if you google my exact problem you will find many people like me complaining about firefox using 1-2gb/s AS THAT IS A VERY HIGH NUMBER....mine is running at 9x that number, so either I have a very special version of firefox or this browser just likes to say "oh you have enough ram to run about 100 instances of a normal web browser at the same time, how about now?". Like I said please do not offer me a solution to my problem. Please instead figure out why your web browser, which is one of the big three and has been around for well over a decade, is completely filling people's ram decks regardless of how much ram they have for no discernable reason. I should not have restart firefox or change the settings or delete a system file or run a powershell script or any other half baked "my cousin made this app for his senior thesis" style solution for your web browser used by TENS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE to work on my $2000 computer. Reeeeeediculous my friends, absolutely ridiculous.

Running Firefox 84.0.1 on Mac Catalina 10.15.7. Consistently cannot load BBC.co.uk and Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com with this error message "Unable to connect Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at www.bbc.co.uk. The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.

I have tried many times and it's not the site is busy. Loads fine on my iPad. My browser runs no proxy. Browser works fine with other https sites. I have cleared history and cache. Running out of things to try!

I have FF on Linux laptop and connected to my FF account to sync. All works fine. However after closing down laptop, restarting, open FF I do not auto reconnect to FF account and sync. What settings do I need so that I auto sync when opening FF? I DO NOT want FF to save site passwords i.e. BBC, TED, etc.

FF 84.0.2(64bit) for Linux Mint - 1.0

This is being sent / monitored from a Windows 10 computer and not the Linux laptop

Not sure if part of this posted as had an internet issue previously that took some time to resolve.

Hello

There is a website that won't go off my URL bar suggestion. I have tried everything I came across searching about this problem : - choosing the entry with the arrows and clicking on the DELETE button (holding SHIFT or not) - removing the website from my history - clicking on "forget this website" in the history - some other things I don't exactly remember

None of this has worked... The website isn't even bookmarked ! When I type "rs" on the search bar, I want rs-online.com and not rs-particuliers.com to appear. You can see the problem is this video : https://youtu.be/Vq5dUpkf534

This is driving me crazy... I use this website (rs-online) every day, and I never use the other one... I want it to get OFF my computer... Sorry if this isn't the right place !! Ask me anything you need to know !

Have a great day

I'm using Mac OS Big Sur and my setup has an external display. When using any other application on my mac, I can use Window > Move to <display name> to move windows to my external display and back. Because I can map a keyboard shortcut to this function, I use this all the time to move my windows around so I don't have to take my hands off my keyboard.

Firefox however seems to be the only application that doesn't implement this for some reason. Has any other Mac user found a way around this?

Hello. I am the user of Firefox browser. My main browser is firefox for recent years. I've been using it very well. I am very satisfied with the customization of Firefox. But today, Firefox stop several times when i use youtube and google. Some youtube videos are not start, and scroll is stop end Firefox says "No response" when i am searching in google. Some of the youtube didn't run at Firefox, so I played them in Chrome and it worked well. And it was not an Internet problem. Because other online programs such as messenger worked well. I bought a new desktop and formatted it a month ago, and I installed the latest versions of Windows and Firefox. This is why I think Firefox is a problem. Please check why Firefox stop today. Thank you.
