My other computer uses Win7 and every time Firefox updates, I loose LastPass and AdBlock+. I have to open 'add-ons', click 'disable', then click 'enable' and close and reopen Firefox. today I open Firefox, it tells me all about the wonderfulness of version 67, but the add-ons are marked as 'Legacy'. When I click to get more info, it shows nothing and I have to click 'extensions' again. If I click 'disable' and close the browser, the next time it shows a button to 'enable'. But clicking and restarting the browser does no good. I tried to get help, but without LastPass, which Mozilla recommends, I can't even ask the questions.

Others have asked similar questions but for different platforms and none of the suggestions have either worked, been appropriate for the setup or understood by me (a non programmer!). I am operating High Sierra 10.13.6 and after migrating to Firefox 67 have lost everything to do with previous setup.

When trying to set a previous profile as default I get the error message about launching an older version of Firefox and gives me a quit or new profile option only which is not satisfactory.

Is there not a simple solution to this unasked for level of complication that allows me to restore my existing bookmarks and passwords without delving deep into processes I don't understand and inputting lots of lines of code? It feels like I've taken my car in to fill up the tank and been told to rebuild the engine to get my car going again.

Im inputting this using Chrome because almost every attempt to use firefox causes a crash

All help gratefully received.

Firefox won't keep me signed in to anything, even though I've selected to remain signed in via websites' preferences and it has always kept me signed in before. Every time I relaunch Firefox, I have to sign in to my two homepages (Yahoo and Fark), even though the passwords are stored in Firefox, and they auto-fill in the appropriate slots. This happens with all other pages I've tried, even the Firefox help forum itself.

I've reset Firefox, I've cleared all my passwords (and re-entered a few of them) to make sure they are correct, and still no luck. I removed u-Block origins, thinking maybe it was causing it, but it's still happening even without u-Block installed.

Hi folks,

Just had the last update. Like last time, starting Firefox after installing I get a new tab instead of the login page of gmail. The setting in Options is still correct for gmail. With the previous update it took 2 days before it remembered suddenly... It's not the end of the world, of course... but kind of irritating :-)

Anybody an idea what is going wrong there?

I have Firefoxes with alomst identical default profile, lets say they are two Firefoxes on different machines. Perhaps their profile is a bit different, but mostly default settings

When I change preferences like on screen in one browser I don't see shield near url in address bar, but in another browser with THIS preferences I do see shield with both two checkboxes on or off. (Checkboxes for "Trackers" and "Cookies")

Which behavior is "default" or "normal" or "correct" for current Firefox version?

default checkbox's values were changing in different releases

I have been using an application called YTD (YouTube Downloader), for some years now, and recently it has started to not download certain videos on YouTube anymore.... Specifically, it will not download any music videos of songs anymore, but it will still download any other videos that are not music.... This seems to be a new thing, as I recently upgrade from High Sierra to Mojave, and a bunch of old apps. that I use no longer function correctly.... Does anyone else use YTD downloader application, and if so, is there a fix for the Mojave opersating system that will let it work correctly?? Thanks in advance!!

Hi,

I have a problem with Firefox Developer Edition (FDE) and profile management. The problem started since firefox FDE v68 beta 6. The browser asks me to create a new profile after a while I'm using it without any reason. I tried to create a fresh profile as suggested and sync it. However, it continuously asks to create a new profile.

Whenever I want to search something or type anything in Firefox it will automatically click what ever my cursor is over. This only happens when I press the A key though. I've tested it and it only happens on Firefox, and it doesn't matter what it is that the cursor is hovering over, as long as I press the A key it will register as a click. Is there a way to disable this as It's incredibly frustrating when I'm trying to search something and I end up "clicking" some random Youtube video or link.

For the last week or so items in History are showing the Facebook icon, not their own, appropriate ones. This strikes me as creepy, wondering if Facebook is trying to meddle with browsing here. I've installed the Facebook Container add-on, but this has not had any effect. I have tried to upload a screenshot of this, but it just hangs.

Flash player is either screwed up or something else - or Firefox is blocking videos. Having experienced problems (videos just sit there or won't load at all) I've just uninstalled Flash Player and am attempting to reinstall a new version - but it won't let me. Seemingly there's another version being loaded - but no way can I find that or know what's happening, so I'm stuck.

The whole thing stems from my inability to watch any videos on Firefox - not even YouTube, BBCi LiveLeak clips or even porn. Yesterday everything went well but today I can't even see gifs on Imgur. What the hell is happening? Why is Firefox blocking me?

Upon upgrading Firefox to v67.0.1 (Arch Linux Package), I get borders around all web pages I open. This does not happen on the "Firefox Home" page. The border is purple because I am in "Private Browsing Mode". I don't know what's causing this, I've looked around a bit, but have neither found a solution nor a post describing a similar problem. This does not happen when using Firefox v66.0.5. Till now, I've stayed on v66.0.5.

Thanks in advance.
