I had to reinstall firefox 33.1. Pls don't ask to update it, it's not the point. Upon starting the reinstalled Firefox all bookmarks disappeared. I go to unsorted bookmarks and go to restore. it shows a list with recent backups but after clicking it says it cannot restore them. I then go to import from HTML I had saved and after clicking it nothing happens. In addition I cannot make any new bookmark. Can you pls help? thank you.

I get a message bar across the top of Facebook to update my browser or change to original format. My browser updates itself and I don't want to change to original format. I love Firefox on Facebook and am now having to use other browser. Also, sending or receiving messages in Facebook, I can only see a few words of my own messages and the same with the incoming messages. I did not upgrate to windows 10 or want to. So far, problem seems to be with Facebook and Firefox.

I've tried just about every anti-spyware and nothing is getting rid of ads and new tabs opening signed "ads by info". I believe that it goes by the name of superfish sometimes. I successfully removed it from Chrome but Firefox is still screwed.

Please don't tell me to look through my extensions. It's not there and I'm not a moron.

I stabilized on Firefox 33 some time ago, because it was stable and the rate-of-change of new releases was too fast (which caused me to lose productivity).

I want to migrate towards Firefox 64-bit.

Should I ... A. Upgrade from v33 to the current 32-bit release in one jump? (Is that even possible?) or... B. Upgrade from 33 to 34, 34 to 35, etc. over time - which means I'll get the "opportunity to experience" :( whatever bugs exist in all the incremental versions... and it will consume a lot of precious time. Are those intermediary versions even available?

"Where" (in the big-picture of that process) would you recommend I make the jump to 64-bit Firefox, with the least "upgrade pain?"

Non-obvious considerations: 1. I have a dozen add-ons, so path (B) will be very tedious as I need to implement and test each add-on on each version. 2. Is there a matrix available, to show which add-on versions work reliably with which Firefox versions? 3. NoScript is very important; I'm currently at release 2.9.0.3 ... which is also not current (2.9.0.11), but probably more-current than Firefox 33. I'm in touch with Giorgio, the developer, about that.

This question is *provoked* by... a sudden failure of Firefox 33 to work (after behaving reliably for years). The symptom was, I suddenly couldn't login use either Yahoo Mail or Facebook (and -only- those two sites)... Facebook would accept the login but do literally nothing beyond that (requiring me to externally kill the process); Yahoo would not even accept the login.

So, I created a new profile with no add-ons (which works fine on both those sites) and I'm gradually re-introducing add-ons to that profile, to see which one "breaks" them.

OR... is there perhaps a "Do Not Use" list somewhere, already, documenting which add-on versions are known to NOT work with specific Firefox releases?

Last but not least... 4. Would there be any value in running the broken Firefox 33 profile, and sending you the "Troubleshooting information" via the link below?

One of the reasons why I have come to HATE Firefox is every time it updates, it erases all my settings, preferences and forces its choices on me. I end up wasting a bunch of time each-and-every-time it updates putting things back how I want instead of all the crap it wants to force on me. I hate this about Firefox. How can I get it to stop erasing my settings and forcing their choices instead???

Several months ago, the news websites started re-loading their home page. This is very annoying, as when it comes back, it doesn't return to where you were reading. As a result, a lot of scrolling is needed to go back and continue. I've contacted them, without a relevant reply. (Clear your cache) Is there a way to stop the auto-reload through the Firefox settings? (Using Win 10 & XP).

I want to know how to stop FF loading ONLY a particular image (while image download is still happening) on a webpage without affecting the other images downloading.This is because during the downloading preview I might realise that the image is not what I wanted and I can stop it loading and thereby save myself some precious bandwidth.Heartfelt thanks in advance to all who reply to my question.

Hello:

I recently changed to Mac OS X Version 10.9.5 and came with it Firefox 33.1.1. Now the 720p and higher resolution options are no longer available for Youtube videos. What should I do to access those options?

(Meanwhile, the Safari Version 7.1.7 (9537.85.16.12) on the machine has all the options.)

I'd appreciate it if you'd kindly tell what I should do.

Thank you,

R.
