Multiple downloads fails
Summary of my current relevant software/hardware:
FireFox (UK): 113.0.2 (64-bit) Windows 10 Pro(UK): Vers.: 22H2 Installed on: 2021-01-23 OS build: 19045-2965 Lenovo (laptop): ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 3 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-10750H CPU @ 2.60GHz 2.59 GHz Installed RAM: 32.0 GB (31.8 GB usable) System Type: 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
My problems with FireFox 113.0.2 started when I began to download some Affinity V2 videos. Some of these were rather large (over 500MB) and I noticed that several were being downloaded at the same time (which was no surprise). However, after sometime I noticed that only one of the videos was completely downloaded and the others were just stopped. Then, when I looked at the task manager the number of FireFox instances was increasing: ...,5,6,...18,..
Of course, I thought I could fix the download process but all my efforts failed; e.g. after a restart of windows and execution of FireFox the same videos were still in a "hold" state and many instances of FireFox were being executed. After a frustating night of failures I finally decided to restore an older FireFox using my Acronis backup/recovery software. My last Aronis backup of my entire system was made on 2023/04/07 with the most recent version of FireFox at the time which worked fine when downloading several large video files at the same time.
I only included the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox' in the restore since I have installed a rather large number of new apps and updates after 2023/04/07. This also failed -- my add-ons, bookmarks, etc. in this restored version were all missing and before I could stop the recovery process, the restored FireFox was updated to the latest as of today (2023/06/01). And of course the problem had not be fixed.
So finally to my request: What directories, files do I need to restore, from the 2023/04/27 backup with all of its features at that time -- this is important, and how do I stop it from upgrading to a newer version?
I would be glad to provide additional information if needed :-)
