Hi Friends,

I have read the other posts on this questions.

I have a very unique use case. My grandfather is 101 and still going strong. He loves his computer and regularly has in-depth questions that he calls me with.

The firefox (latest version) updates are causing him serious problems though. It seems like they are very regular - I know this is good, but in this case, being 101, I just want him to be able to use his computer without being bothered with the updates. I am aware of the different options, but unfortunately there is not a "turn off" option (why!). I did read something about modifying a .json file though. On a side note, I'm a computer guy and have been involved with IT for over 30 years. The firefox updates are a "bother" for other people I work with as well.

Does somebody have the code they can share to turn off these updates? When this stupid covid is over I will be seeing him regularly and will perform the updates myself.

Thank you.

Hello.

I've just enabled browser.ssb.enabled and tried using it in a random website. So I noticed a few things, which I would like to confirm, and found an issue I would like some help with:

1) Is the SSB a different, clean profile?

2) Is there any way to enable specific add-ons in a specific SSB?

I had trouble with a cookies issue: the website requires logging in, but it opens a separate link in a new tab, and Firefox is opening that link as a regular new tab in my main window and not making any link between that new tab and the open SSB, so even after I successfully log-in, the SSB is clueless and remain un-logged. So:

3) Is there a way to solve that?

4) Is there a way I can list which addresses (domains, subdomains...) Firefox should include in an SSB (as opposed to opening in a new tab in the main window)?

5) Where can I find documentation on how 'Firefox as SSB' works, how to customize, etc.?

Thanks.

Ever since the latest update, FF is super slow, with more than 5-8tabs open it will force my disk to run at 100%, rendering my system which isn't crap useless. 3ghz CPU, 8GB RAM, Nvidia 4GB GPU, never had a problem before this FF 80 update...

Don't want to remove my extensions -Https everywhere, disconnect, Facebook container, WebRTC, Adblock ultimate, Ghostery, cookie auto delete and Magic actions....Otherwise nothing else running...no junk!

I use a good VPN only to connect to the net, and again never had an problems before this update...no other updates have taken place on my system for a month or way more!

I refuse to use Google, and am at a loss as I love Mozilla.....Web pages are also crashing and saying no server now, yet I check my net speed and it's rapid as always?!

Much love and thanks for all the help in advance.

After a recent FireFox update, I am now having a problem downloading Outlook.com webmail attachments. The download process appears to initiate, but when asked via popup "What should FireFox do with this file", the "OK" button remains 'grayed out' regardless as to whether the "Open . . " or "Save . . " option is selected. BTW: Using FF v79.0 w/ Win 8.1 and not having same issue using either Chrome or IE and issue does not appear to be file-type specific. Assistance would be MUCH appreciated as FF is my preferred browser.

Hi! This may sound silly, but I don't know if the programs need each other to operate correctly, like a build-on situation.

I was uninstalling programs today and see that I have, Mozilla Firefox 71, Mozilla Firefox 78.0.2, and Mozilla Firefox 80.0.1.

I'm good to uninstall the 71 and 78 right? Not sure why Mozilla didn't do it automatically when it updated; which adds to my hesitation to do it without asking.

Thanks!
