General Preferences seems to believe that I don't have container tabs enabled. It says that Facebook Container "requires container tabs" and suggests I disable it. (See first image). However, the add-on seems to be working - the tab has a black underline (see second image)
I only noticed this message today, so I have no idea how long it's been around. I've tried many things, including
- making sure Firefox is up-to-date - restarting Firefox (many times, including in Safe Mode) - removing and reinstalling Facebook Container - disabling all add-ons except Facebook Container - closing and re-opening Preferences after each and every change
I even installed a system update and re-started my computer.
I'd appreciate all and any help.

Add a column to the bookmark library that indicates the folder where the bookmark is located. For example, in the screen shot (bookmark1), for the last bookmark, have a column that will show the location (NOT URL) of which folder(s) that bookmark is in. Based on the second screenshot (bookmark2), the folder is 'Home\Time Wasters\'. 'Home\Time Wasters\' would be in the 'Bookmark Folder' column, that would need to be added. See bookmark3.

Oracle Linux 7, FF 68.2 ESR, recent update to Flash 126.96.36.1993, I check in Addons that newest Flash is there (had issues a few weeks ago where I had to remove pluginreg.dat as 188.8.131.520 wouldn't get noticed and FF thought it was 184.108.40.206 still, complaining I had an out-of-date version), and surprise - both Flash and IcedTea aren't there.
So I confidently close FF, remove pluginreg.dat, fire FF up again - but no dice.
Check contents of pluginreg.dat, and here they are:

[HEADER] Version:0.19t:$ Arch:x86_64-gcc3:$
Funny, so I try downgrading Flash via YUM, which can't be done as Adobe promptly removes old versions from its repos. OK, so I just YUM erase Flash, only to achieve an INVALID IcedTea plugin. What?
Did I perhaps use FF 68.2 for 2 weeks without noticing the issue? Well if that's the case a downgrade to 68.1 will fix things, right? So I re-add via YUM the latest Flash plugin, but alas 68.1 still thinks that and IcedTea are INVALID.
Mumble. Well let me get the big hammer and further downgrade to FF 60.9, remove pluginreg.dat, fire FF up again and... oh. Still INVALID. Now I'm 100% sure there's something weird - but what is it?
Long story short, even creating an entirely new UNIX user and firing up FF which obviously created a new profile from scratch, it gets the same pluginreg.dat right off the bat with Flash and IcedTea plugins marked as INVALID.
So, what are the further debugging steps here as I guess I'm out of options?

I know this has been asked before. And solutions included clearing browser cookies, disabling add-ons, resetting the browser, & coping urls and pasting into address bar. The problem is Firefox, not corrupted files. I've completely uninstalled Firefox and deleted all firefox data, profiles, user folders, etc. from my computer. Then used a freshly downloaded installer to reinstall Firefox, with a completely clean profile and no add-ons. I still get this error. I've even tried this with Firefox ESR (Extended support release). This issue needs solved Mozilla! You need to learn to play nice. I hate having to dump my favorite browser, again. This is the third situation since I started using Firefox this type of situation has forced me to dump Firefox completely. Just when I get comfortable with Firefox, it goes back to not working and making users think they are doing something wrong, or the other company has issues. It is usually just Firefox that is broken.
With that realization, I'll have to go with something like Google Chrome, which I hate. At least a virus can be wiped from the hard drive. But Firefox issues are a lost cause.

Window 7 sp1 I checked '%LOCALAPPDATA%\Mozilla\updates' and the folder is EMPTY. I was on v67.0.x and it would have updated to the brand new v70. Tried installing v68.0.2I had the installer for and it opened in a new window without my favorites, saved logons, etc. I clicked on the firefox icon pinned to the lower taskbar and it opened v68.0.2 with all my favorites, logons, etc. Only seems to be one firefox application in Program Files. I Pasted 'about:profiles' into both and attached is the screen grab. Need to endup running v68.0.2 or v69 but NOT the just released v70. Why does an install or update always change my preferences to automatically install updates??

Mac OS X High Sierra 10.13.6
Here's the routine with FF on this machine: If FF 68.0.2 is running, after a while I will try to open a new tab and be told "Sorry we need to do one small thing to keep going, FF has been updated in the background, Restart FF" I do so. It opens up a new, clean profile in a new window (About FF now says 68.0.1 in this version of FF, and it downloads 68.0.2 and prompts to Restart FF (again)). At which point it runs "a new helper tool" and re-updates FF to 68.0.2. I then have to mess with about:profiles to go back to my profile. Things then run routinely for a few hours or a day, before the whole routine starts over again.
Alternately, if FF 68.0.2 is not running, if I open it (after opening and closing it several times without issue), I will get a message that "You've launched an older version of FF, Create New Profile or Quit". Create New Profile leads me through the routine above.
Versions of the above routine have happened not just between 68.0.2 and 68.0.1, but also between earlier version updates. That is, this has been going on for months. It does seem in the last couple of weeks that the interval of time has shortened and I'm having to do this routine everyday or even multiple times a day. I have no problems like this with FF on any other machine.
Trashing FF and re-dl'ing from Mozilla. No dice. Trashing FF, trashing Library/Cache/Mozilla and Firefox folders. No dice. Trashing FF, trashing Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles (and re-signing in to retrieve my existing bookmarks etc and re-setting up View and other Preferences). No dice.
If anyone has any ideas, I'll be grateful, thanks in advance.
