I have already searched for answers, but the solutions I found told me to search for "mousebutton.4th.enabled" in "about:config", and it's not there

Our business website has recently been relaunched, it displays fine on other browsers but is beyond broken on Firefox. I've attached a screenshot of how it looks on Chrome, to see how it looks on Firefox here is our url: https://www.exegetic.biz/.

As you can see it's VASTLY different and VERY frustrating. I've done a fair amount of reading as to what the issue could be but all the suggestions I have found are end user based... For example emptying the cache, clearing cookies, checking the zoom etc. This doesn't really help since I've looked at the site on various devices with FireFox and they all appear the same...

Has anyone else experienced this? Any help would e greatly appreciated!

Hi - please help! I'm running Windows 10 on a Dell Laptop. Firefox won't shut down at all and every morning it asks if I want to restore the previous session. This is causing all sorts of issues. I've followed all the advice in the troubleshooting guide (ie updating windows, stopping fast start up, and everything else in the guide - as well as deleting and reinstalling Firefox) but nothing has worked. It's driving me nuts! Any help would be appreciated.

I am using a PC, Windows 10. I have the latest version of Firefox installed, ie V 62.0.2 (x64 en-US) from Sep 21, 2018. The Mozilla Maintenance Service (MMS) version installed on my PC is V 55.0.3 from Jun 28, 2018. My review and reading of various posts on this site indicates the MMS version should be the same number as the Firefox version. How do I update MMS to 62.0.2? Thank you.

Running Firefox 63.0.3 (64-bit) on Windows 10 ver 1803, I click on "Restart to update Firefox" and get "Firefox is installing your updates and will start in a few moments." But when it does start, nothing has changed: I am still running 63.0.3 and it still says "Restart to update Firefox." I have been round this loop a half dozen times. What next?

this morning, I get the above error message when attempting to open ff. I was able to open ff from the start menu(windows 7 enterprise), but all of my bookmarks have disappeared. I had the system administrator attempt to restore my computer, with no results, then reinstalling ff. upon reinstall, I was able to open ff, but bookmarks were still missing. then, a ff update "esr" was run, and now I get the error msg above trying to open ff from anywhere. I cannot open ff at all to restore defaults or run in safe mode to fix.

Hello to whom it may concern: Two days ago my Firefox Browser was updated for my automatically, to 75.0(64-Bit). But today I need to reboot my computer due to things getting slow. Once I rebooted I had noticed when I had opened Outlook Email in my Firefox Browser the "Junk E-mail Folder" had disappeared. I immediately went to my standby browser on 'Edge' and checked to see if things had also changed on my Outlook E-mail account, it was all good nothing missing or changed. I totally only use Firefox Browser it is the only browser I trust and know that protects me(plus Firefox is so much faster). I do hope this issue can be fixed fast, since I do get important e-mails that end up in my Junk e-mail folder I need to have access to. Kindest regards, Milton

I do use the latest version of FF. but today the older version was wiped out. This seems to happen frequently,, but I've been able to find a version of 52.2.1

Today I can't seem to locate this version.

BTW: The work software requires Silverlight. There's a bug somewhere, as the Silverlight "Can't be found and needs to be installed". But the new version of FF states Silver is already installed.

Yes, I know - the work software is horrible and is the problem!

I do not want Google to know where I am and collect a dossier on my browsing history. I'm not talking about doing this on a smartphone where location is important; this is on a PC.

I did not see it in Preferences, but can it be disabled by entering about:config and changing one of the listed preferences?

hello, just updated to version 62 (x64) and everything become very very slow. It needs at least 18 seconds to open and the same time to open just a new tab

before the update everything was good enough, now I uninstalled it completely with Revo, cleaned the registry with Wise, cleaned the PC with CCleaner, optimize the SSD and installed the previous (working) version (61): SAME SITUATION, IT'S UNBELIEVABLE SLOW.

After the new installation, without any plugin installed: very slow. With the plugins installed: the same

What is FUNNY is that's not happening on a cheaper system! What is FUNNY is that it's not happenyng on just ONE system!

Sys 1: Laptop with Intel i5, 8Gb RAM and SSD Samsung Sys 2: Desktop with Intel i5, 16Gb RAM DDR4 3600MHz, 256Gb SSD Samsung NVMe and Geforge 1080 8Gb

You'll understand that with any of those system in your hands, waiting more than 2 seconds to see the browser open IS ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!

The last update corrupt something, otherwise the previous working version didn't works so badly

Now I'll restore a ghost image, fortunately I have it at least two for each month, in the while I'll test other faster browsers
