FF crashes at least once a week. For at least the past 4 weeks, when I re-open it and try to restore session, all the pages open as "blank". In History, "restore session" is grayed out. I've looked through the articles here about restore session, and looked at the suggested solutions and tried the ones that are relevant. Nothing worked. I suspect the problem lies in the profile but I can't find a step-by-step answer how to fix the profile saving the session correctly. I don't even know if this is the problem, but every other solution was wrong.

Hi everyone,

Is there an add-on or way to firefox to show all open tabs in a drop down menu? Many many years ago in the tool or view menu I think, this function use to exist. Its difficult to hone in on one tab when you have multiple tabs open quickly.

Is Firefox-- or Waterfox-- still compatible with Windows XP past version 42? Plus multiple instances of Firefox

Hey all,

I recently acquired a windows 10 laptop (yay me!), so I finally have an up to date machine, and recently tried to update to version 43. For whatever reason, the classic theme restorer refused to install on it, so I tried the licensed Waterfox variant. That seems to work fine. However I have been very cautious about upgrading the Firefox version I have on my old XP machine as now that 10 is out, I don't know if you guys (or Waterfox) are still supporting XP at all, so I figured I would ask, as apparently some people have posted questions recently about issues with Firefox on XP. So, is it still supported on the older system? I mainly use the laptop for a mix of gaming and computing on the go, but at some point I'll be using the laptop full time when/if the desktop dies. Can anyone clarify this?

In addition, I recently asked about how to do multiple versions of Firefox on the same machine, and while I got an answer, it wasn't one I entirely understood, as I am not tech savvy, nor programming savvy or anything like that. Can I get a clear, concise and, if I'm honest, really simple and straightforward explanation on this? I do not understand a lot of the steps explained very well in the answer I did get on how to do this, so that leaves me unsure how to proceed and frustrated as all hell. I'd like to upgrade to the current edition of Firefox on the XP machine (if it's still supported) as well as keep the older version in case the new version has some kind of issue that requires a fix, and also be able to run both Firefox and Waterfox on the new machine for much the same reason, as I don't know what sites, if any, might not be compatible with the newer versions of the browsers. I realize that is an unlikely scenario, but I do recall someone mentioning in the past that they keep older instances of the browser on hand because this very situation has come up.

I'm curious. On my Windows XP desktop, right up till Thursday, April 16 2016, I had no issue updating Microsoft Security Essentials. When an issue came up, I attempted to download an installer produced by Microsoft specifically for the program that would force updates through in the case of issues with the actual updating system for MSE. However when I attempted the download, I didn't get all of it. The file is a 111mb file, but Firefox was only getting 110 of it, which rendered it useless. I haven't gotten around to updating from version 28.0 on my XP machine for two reasons; 1) I'm working on backing up all my stuff to migrate to a windows 10 laptop in case this old monster of mine crashes and burns and, 2) I have still yet to learn how to move the data over to my new machine so that I can have the older version of Firefox be separate from the more updated versions on it (or the variants, such as Waterfox) despite my best attempts to learn how to do so via links recommended here. Does anyone know if having an older version of Firefox has somehow affected MSE's ability to update somehow, and/or if the older version also somehow affects downloads?

I have recently acquired a Windows 10 Laptop, and I have firefox on the device. However I still use my windows XP machine, and do some web browsing on it. I am curious as to when and if firefox will stop getting updates for XP, ad I believe I saw a recent note somewhere that a specific version would be the last that would work on XP service pack 2, but I cannot remember which version. Furthermore, as I have service Pack 3, I'm wondering what the final version that will work on that will be.


Incidentally, I was also curious about the Waterfox variant of the Firefox browser. What exactly is it, and does it work on XP at all or no?

Hi folks,

I have searched an read and tried the following, but the problem keeps coming back.

After "some" period of time in a browser session, Google bookmarked pages and searches just stop responding. They look like they try to connect, but fail after timing out in a minute or two. Bing, Yahoo, etc all work. ONLY Google. No other website I can find has this issue.

-Sometimes, after a few minutes they work again without any intervention from me.

-Sometimes, restarting the browser clears the problem.

-Most often deleting cookies clears the issue for an extended period, but it comes back.

-Sometime clearing he cache clears the problem for a shorter period.

-It is not an extension or add on issue.

-Disabling IPV6 did not help.

-It does not happen in IE or Pale Moon so not a system issue.

Any ideas what to try? I may have tried more that I am not recalling. Happy to play until this is found. It is annoying.

Thanks.

~Bob

When I open a history entry, it's automatically moves to the top of the list and scroll me there. Not only this scrolls away from the place in the (very long) history list I was looking at, It screws up the browsing history.

Can I force FF to copy the entries rather than move them and not autoscroll to the top?

I tried to upgrade from Firefox 28 many times but I keep getting the same problem with the search engines, today it was with Firefox 40.0.3 [for mac].

Basically, when I try to switch the search engine at the top of the browser the display shows me the icon of the new one, but the search results are stuck on a single site [Wiki US] that is not even the default search engine [google]. I tried to switch to several engines and the display shows them but the search results keep coming from wiki US.

I didn't find any other person talking about this problem so I guess there must be some conflict with my settings/plugins/preferences or something. I tried to upgrade to 34 and 40 but they both had the same problem. since I search several sites all the time, I'm stuck with Firefox 28 that thankfully does what it's told, but I'd like to upgrade.

I want to make the navigation toolbar buttons size bigger because they are now too small. I tried this code with Stylish but it didn't work:

  1. nav-bar {iconsize='large'}

Also, in the DOM inspector, for the nav-bar id, there is Node Name "iconsize" and the Node Value for it is "small". If i change the Node Value from "small" to "large" the navigation bar icons appear in the size i want, but after restarting Firefox the Node Value resets again to "small". Is it possible to save the changes that i make in DOM inspector?
