How do I stop using beta?

I Googled about stopping using Firefox beta and transition to release version but none of the pages I found in this forum talks about an error message about user profile that only gives me the option to Create a New Profile (therefore losing all my add-ons, cookies, settings and everything) or Exit.

I tried manually googling "download Firefox" and downloaded the release version and after installing it, I get the warning message above. This thread here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1224888 has a link to the rapid release version but I end up in the same warning message.

Since the beta will necessarily always be a newer version than a release version, how do I transition from beta to a release version but preserve all my settings, add-ons and everything if Firefox will tell me that it won't let me use my existing profile in an older version, the release version?

My motivation to leave the beta version is that Firefox started having a bug since 27-Oct-2020 in Google meetings where either a shared screen or the camera image of the person in a meeting appears very zoomed in in the top left corner so it doesn't show the rest of the image.

Hello: FF dev build 83.0b5 64bit, w10p. A new odd issue to me. Using ActBlue (political PAC) I sometimes use my regular credit card to make small political contribution. As of 28oct20, this FF stops completing the transaction. I hit the "donate" button, & nothing happens. I have seen a "processing" type msg from the vendor us. promptly - but again, the current page just sits there, the "processing"action & pg don't happen. On 28th eve, I checked my bank acct to see if somehow the donation had been made (I would see the deduction taken), and no, it hadn't. No prior nightly build type update had shown this behavior. I have no other FF on this w10 (no stable, nada anything else for FF). I have made no changes to extensions, plugins or otherwise. I had to go to stable chrome to complete the donation, and chrome did it right the 1st time. So, this is just an FYI, I don't know where else to post nor may I have the rights to post elsewhere. Tx.

Hey there guys,

For a week now am trying to login to my FF account within Firefox in order to sync data. Now when I enter my email and password I get greeted with a message that my account it locked. "Sorry. We’ve locked your account. The confirmation email we sent to <email here> was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data."

Now read along the web that I need to wait 24h (already had) before I retry or that I need to submit a ticket to mozilla bug platform (that I also had but got no reply yet - for 4 days). Not sure what to do next... Trying my luck with writing a message here as maybe someone will take note of my issue. Before anyone asks, I have access to my email that the account is registered with. Also I can access my account from the desktop browser from Windows where am already logged in, but feel that if I need to maybe reinstall FF, will not be able to login again.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Good evening, I downloaded firefox developer and I must say that I was very amazed by the wonderful browser you have created, the only problem is that when I want to go to view the credentials, any person can view the password (I use a window login password) .

I ask you to enter if it is possible to verify (if it exists) to enter the login window password so as to have even more security!

I have a Bookmarklet that draws a red border on all elements in the web page.

` (function(){

   var e = document.querySelectorAll('*');
   var el = e.length;
   for (let i = 0; i < el; i++) {
           setTimeout(() => {
               e[i].style.border="1px solid red";
           }, 100);
   }

})(); `

This works fine on Chromium-based browser, but when I run this in Firefox it starts drawing borders and then all of the sudden a number gets written on the page. Everything is gone and a number appears.

I don't know why this happens, every other Bookmarklet works fine. It might be the script I wrote but I doubt it because it works completely okay on Chrome.

Running this snippet directly inside the console works fine.

Using Firefox 85.0b2 (64 bit) Windows 10. Both Firefox and Windows 10 updated themselves in past couple of days.

Previously Firefox played videos on YouTube. Now it does not. (still image appears, and spinning circle but nothing further; and then YouTube suggests try restarting my device).

Videos still play OK in MS Edge.

I have tried all advice I can find, including clearing Cache, clearing cookies, and resetting Firefox. Starting Firefox in Safe mode. Restarting Windows and Firefox multiple times. Nothing has made any difference.

Can anyone suggest anything else to try??

I could not log in with previous TOTP any more so I used a backup recovery code to gain access to the account. Disabled non-working TOTP and now I am trying to re-enable 2FA, but every time I successfully go through the process (there is a green bar on top of the screen that says "Two-step authentication enabled"), the end result is that 2FA is still disabled and not required when logging in to the firefox account.

Hello,

this knowledge base article (Remove the Other Bookmarks folder from the Bookmarks Toolbar) claims that you can display the Other Bookmarks folder on the toolbar since Firefox 85 but it seems to be a lie.

How can I display the Other Bookmarks folder on the toolbar in Firefox? Thanks for your help!
