When I started Firefox today, neither Twitter or Reddit would load. Totally white pages without even an error message. I tried various solutions, including: 1. Disabling UBlock Origin 2. Staring Firefox in Safe Mode 3. Deleting all cookies/site data/password saved for these sites, restarting, and logging in.

The third solution worked. However now when I run Firefox in normal mode none of my extensions (RES, UBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, etc) work. They appear to be working (their icons in the taskbar, they are 'enabled' in settings) but they aren't doing anything and when I click on their icons they don't have any data/info on the current site.

I tried running the storage test here (https://firefox-storage-test.glitch.me/) and it returned errors seen in the attachment.

Also I'm running Firefox version 77.0.1 and Windows 7 despite this troubleshooting page and others automatically detecting a different versions (says 68.0 and Windows 10 here)

I find that I dislike many of the standard installation configurations. I'm a tech and install Firefox to get users away from those "other" browsers. But there's too much I don't like and it takes me too long to reconfigure each new installation.

So... I'd love to have a configuration script or something that could be run with the Firefox installer, full one if necessary, that would do all the tweaks I do after a new installation.

Examples. Remove all the extra stuff in the area to the right of the address bar. Leave and change download arrow to NOT hide when not currently used. (Who thought of that should be fired). Put old bookmarks icon back in place of other one. Remove the blank spaces on each side of the address bar.

And configure non-default options such as ask where to download instead of default to downloads, load previous tabs on startup, set default home page, disable password remembering, etc.

And, ideally allow installation of add-ons I always utilize like Bitwarden password manager (much preferred to Firefox's storing them), and Adblock Plus.

Any chance of any of this becoming available? Really don't want to use one of the screen recording/macro programs to do it.

Thanks.

In the good old days of Dial-up/Serial Comms links, and even today with Telnet, it's possible to get the Terminal to send periodic "no-ops" to the far end to keep the session open/ stop it from timing out with extended gaps between activity. Is it possible to get Firefox to do this too please? I wounder if it's possible to send some form of periodic auto-mouseclick in a set area of the webpage? I'm not looking to circumvent lack of activity session termination entirely as I only want to arrange a slightly prolong the gap.
