why do my add-ons keep getting disabled?

ff keeps disabling add-ons that i have used for years and even keep a v. 5 to use the older add-ons and use the latest ff developer to use w/ more modern websites. ff even disables add-ons that worked perfectly well in ff developer and does not even give me the opportunity to re-enable them like i could before.

is there any way to force my old version to let ME decide what i want disabled/enabled?

Hi!


This is an old question, but now over the time i can be more specific with this problem. What i know now in windows 10: - with firefox ESR sandboxie works fine all the time (now I use v 115.8.0); - with current firefox (v123) what happens is, after install current version, every time i open firefox, it works fine, but if i select "pause forcing programs", to change something in firefox, this means open firefox without sandboxie, now the first time i open firefox again sandboxie, it´s freeze, and can´t use for this moment now firefox sandboxie. Only works without sandboxie.

Thanks in advance.

Highlighting with the mouse is full of glitches. It never works right. It either stops highlighting or highlights opposite the direction I'm moving the mouse.

I need to summarize a recent medical encounter; the hospital's 234 pages are out of temporal order and have many repeats. I want to put it in time order and delete the repeats. It's a PDF, and since I can't use Acrobat anymore, I read PDFs in Firefox.

Not once have I been able to mark a section of text properly. There seem to be some forbidden areas: I highlight what I can, transfer it, then go back for the rest, but it won't highlight.

Ctl-A highlights it. I often do that and delete the excess, but that's inconvenient.

I can open the same file in xpdf and mark without trouble, but I don't like xpdf.

For this doc, I converted the PDF to text with pdf2text, but it's harder to read. I identify target text in Firefox, then find it in the text version, use emacs to copy from the original to my summary.

I've tried a fresh battery in the mouse. Every other app works.

I usually have firefox running. Sometimes I want to display a file on my computer in firefox. Until today (don't know what happened today) I could; firefox would add a new tab for display of that file. Now it gives me an error, reports, 'Firefox is already running, but not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile'. This is inconvenient.

I have refreshed Firefox several times and it works for a while. If I use MS Edge it works fine every time. I really don't want to switch over to MS edge. Please help.

I noticed that after the recent updates, the pop-up notification for blocked pop-ups has changed from yellow to white.. This makes it very difficult to see and I almost missed it. Is there a way to revert this change using userChrome.css?

I don't understand why this unnecessary change was made. I already have my own userChrome style for the entire Firefox because it was frustrating to constantly change it back after each update.

I would appreciate any information on how to revert this change.

Thanks.
