Hi

I recently had to change computers. I was using an older Firefox version which was the highest it could go on my older Mac OS with version 48.0.2

On my new computer I am using version 62.0.3

Can I migrate my saved login information from my older version of Firefox? I have my old hard drive accessible, but I'm not sure how to find the login or point my newer version of Firefox to find the old saved logins.

Thanks

Was dealing with T Rowe Price personnel re: new firefox download and was directed to attempt down load via their provided link. I had already explained that a previous effort on my part had suggested the new firefox (62.0.2) was for Mac OS 10.9 (or higher) and that my OS 10.6.8 was likely a "no-no". After some arm twisting I did the download. The resulting firefox icon (associated with the dmg) is overlaid with the international circle/slash that suggests it is not to be used. Am I correct that this is what this odd icon is intended to convey?

Thanks in advance. Rob Walter

I'm running an old AMD P4 equivalent that doesn't have the SSEE capability I think it's called so I can't upgrade above firefox 48.0.2 which I have. I only use it for web search but occasionally I like to browse youtube but now I can't as I can only go up to flash player 29 and firefox blocks it. I got around it once by uninstalling flash and firefox then re-installing both, but that doesn't work now. Can you help? I'm not worried about security issues on this machine as it's for leisure only with no personal/sensitive data on it.

Thank you in advance

I want to thank you for your support of the little guy for all of this time. I used Firefox exclusively right up til the minute I found I have to upgrade my OS in order to use your browsers. I am running an older mac because that is all I can afford. It will not upgrade to any of your products, so unless you would like to purchase a brand new iMac for to use in my dog sitting business, (my only means of income) this looks like the end of a long and lovely relationship.

Adblock plus removed during a Firefox fix, replaced it with Adblock strict, need to restore plus

Back in February, I updated Firefox on my MacBook Pro, OSX 10.6.8. AdBlock Plus was moved into the Old Firefox Data folder. Not realizing this, I went to Add-ons. The closest description I thought was AdBlock Strict, which I installed.

It has annoyed me ever since. Ads load everywhere. When I click on any live link in an e-mail or a website, the popup asks Allow or Deny, I click Allow and nothing happens. Since every time I do something to this computer, I get it wrong and waste a lot of time, I have let this problem annoy me every day and go to work on another, newer MacBook Pro (without ads and with working links).

I've finally had it! I want to get the old AdBlock Plus back and ditch Strict forever.

i have had selected 'show my windows and tabs from last time' from 'when firefox starts'. There were almost 18 , 20 tabs saved. Yesterday firefox crased and when i restarted, all the tabs were there but they are blanks now. All my saved tabs are replaced by these blank tabs. there is no address in the url bar and they are just like a new tab when you open one. any help would be greatly appreciated as i had precious data on those tabs. Thanks!! (and by the way, my firefox version is 48.0b10)

I was prompted to update by Firebox but the software update window replied with "Unable to Update .. you do not have the system permissions required to install it.

I **know** that I can download the latest version from the website, but it irks me that the software update feature is broken. From reading other threads on this topic, I'm assuming the security issue is that the Firefox app is installed in the **usual** Applications folder, which sits outside of my user folder. However, the other apps I use that do updates outside of the app store update interface do NOT have this problem. The Application folder allows Administrators to Read & Write and my normal user has administrative privileges.

Hello, I like using Firefox & it used to work great with Yahoo mail, until about 6 months ago. I have Mac OS X, 10.6.8. I can use Yahoo mail on Safari, but I want to still use my Yahoo mail on Firefox, where I have all my contacts.

I read some of the Yahoo solutions which are online, but it seems, I have all the correct settings.

Maybe, I have to call Firefox for help.

Thank YOU,

Matthew
