Yesterday, I encountered a problem in which I was unable to delete bookmarks in Firefox 48.0.2. Prior to encountering this problem, I did change my Cached Web Content to Limit cache to 256 mb of space. I do not know if this is what caused the problem. Since first encountering the problem yesterday, each time thereafter that I tried to delete a bookmark, a spinning wheel appears, spins for a few seconds, and then the spinning wheel disappears and the bookmark is still there, not deleted.

Please advise as soon as possible.

Thank you for your help. Cmill

Many times I just shut down due to frustration at the multiplicity of crashes. I have work interviews coming up and don't want the system crashing in the midst. Please, I have sent remarks on several crash reports along with my email address an have heard nothing in response. Please educate me on what I may do to keep this from happening. HELP PLEASE?!?!? and Thank you!

I was wondering how I can revert to my old version of firefox. When I downloaded the new version (57.0.2) it created an "Old Firefox Data" which has all of my bookmarks and account info (which I no longer have access to). I am no longer interested in this version because it is not compatible with my software.

Thank you for your assistance.

Hi all.

This has probably been asked ad nauseum, so I am sorry to ask this again, I did not find this problem or solution in a search on the forum.

I visit many websites a day, following bloggers, companies of all kinds. I am assaulted, constantly, by pop-up email subscription windows; you know the kind I am speaking of, the site wants you to sign up for their email, follow them on Facebook, etc. You start to read something of interest, and then BAM! Right in your face, a big window pops up to follow them, blocking what you were doing, until you click out of it. It is so annoying!

I have tried different tools in the past with no luck in blocking them at all. It seems these pop-up windows are created in such a way that they are like a puzzle: made of many pieces, so it is impossible to block them with one click of Ad-blocker.

Have there been any progress made, to once and for all, block these bothersome pop-up windows? Any new tools/add-ons I can try to try to block them?

Thank you, for any help you can give me :)

Hi my system crashed a couple nights ago and when I went to restart it, the system told me I needed to update it. Upon updating it it completely cleared out ALL of my tabs that I had open that I was saving and it has deleted every single one of my bookmarks! I need this information as I work from home on my computer. I'm furious that the system did this and made me lose everything! What can I do to recover this??

I am on Mac OS 10.7.5. I was sourcing a map and was asked to download an application to access it. Now when I open a new web page, that provider's search page opens up instead of my home page (still unaffected) or the Firefox "favourite links" page. Clicking "Open new web pages with my home page" in Firefox preferences does not change this.

I'm REALLY frustrated at the fact that I have to be forced to upgrade my computer or operating system just to upload my videos on Facebook as my videos do not load, the post buttons do not appear and everywhere I look it says I have to be on the LATEST version of my browser! Now, I along with countless MILLIONS of other Macintosh users are on OS Versions such as Lion & Mountain Lion and THEY all deserve respect as well.... I implore you all at Mozilla to PLEASE try and repair the Firefox Browsers so they can all be used universally regardless of whether you're on Leopard or El Capitan or any other OS in the spectrum...

To the one in charge: Hi, good afternoon, I am writing to ask about the Two-factor Authenticator. I have installed it on the browser, but when I tried to use it to decipher a QR Code with either the scan and the 'Add screen shot' option, nothing happened.

If you could give me some advice how to use it in order to get the 2FA code to verify an account, I will greatly appreciate it.

Hoped to upgrade Firefox, my favorite internet browser for years, but my 2009 Mac Pro won't take Apple's OS X beyond 10.7.5, and Firefox doesn't allow me to upgrade after v48.2. I came across the ESR version 45.9, downloaded it, and now don't know which version I should actually use - 48.2 or the ESR version. Halp! Thanks.

My MacPro (note: not MacBookPro) is 10.7.5. Therefore, (according to your instructions where I first started to try updating my Firefox) I cannot update my Firefox (because updating is not available for 10.7.5 but only for 10.9 and up) but must install (I quote) " a secure version of Firefox." Unfortunately, your instructions do not tell me where I can find a secure version of Firefox. I'll keep looking but a hint would be welcome. Thanks in advance.

I keep getting a script error on only one particular web site. The script errors have increased to the point it is difficult for me to use this web site service. The web site is Feedly.com, the RSS reader I use. I started having this issue a few months ago, very little. It has since increased to the point of being constant or multiply times a day. I tried to get help from Feedly. They told me to clear the browser cache. That did nothing. They said to start the browser in incognito with add-ons disabled...no change.

If I click on a link in the feed to go to a particular article on a web site, that web site also takes forever to load. If I use the Chrome browser, it does not take as long to load. If I use Safari, it is slow too, but not as bad as Firefox.

Do you have any other suggestions?

My current system: iMac 10.7 version (yes, I know, not updated yet) Firefox 48 (since I have not updated my OS yet, I can't update Firefox)
