A search of Mozilla Help only throws up mentions in passing of Mozbackup by people who have used it. So what is it? And why doesn't it appear as part of installing Firefox, instead of me having to hunt for it  ?

I gather it may be be needed for Firefox and Thunderbird backups since proprietary backup programs somehow fail to deal with them successfully. Is this really the case ? And how would it work combining  two different back-ups ? (scratches tiny head)

Thanks for your help

P.S. running W7 ultimate but OS and indeed system not really an issue.

I recently upgraded to Firefox 24.0. I use Windows 7

It used to be that any time I clicked on a link to download anything, I would be given the chance to choose where I wanted to save whatever I was downloading. The item would also be saved in the download file or directory.

But now, when I click a link to download anything, it just automatically saves to the download directory without giving me the chance to save it somewhere else. So if I want the file somewhere else, I have to open the download directory and move it where to where I want it.

How do I set Firefox so it is like it was before, so that it gives me a choice of where I want to save a download before it starts downloading it? Thanks.

I don't know how to add a new website to the New Tab page in FF. All I have are a bunch of blank windows. The FF instructions page tells me to hit a Pin-icon in the top-left corner of a site to pin it to the New Tab window, except I don't see any pin. Any suggestions?

The support topic on this question says to look for a "pin" icon in the upper left corner of the browser. I do not show one. Firefox used to just automatically populate my new tabs page with the thumbnails, but it is no longer doing that, and I don't know how to fix it. I downloaded some freeware that changed a number of browsing options (default browser, added Bing bar without my full knowledge, etc.). Got that all removed but then Firefox wasn't working well, so I had to uninstall/reinstall the program. Now my thumbnails are gone and I can neither get them back nor create new ones. Help! Cheers, Dolly

Is there any way to disable Firefox from updating my browser?

I have been an ardent Firefox user ever since Firefox began, having created innumerable Firefox users through the effusive enthusiasm in which I have promoted Firefox to others. But the manner in which Firefox has been demonstrating its total disdain for its loyal cadre of users like myself has me infuriated to no end, to the point of dumping Firefox altogether out of sheer frustration, anger with Firefox's absolute disregard to the requests of its users, who have pleaded to have a mechanism in which the all-too frequent updates wreaks havoc with our lives, livelihood.

The worst aspect of Firefox's dictatorial approach is the manner in which truth is the first casualty in having a process to disable the update process which is very much akin to the manner in which Foie gras is produced. I have been given all sorts of advice, guidance on how to disable the update process none of which have done a wit to fulfill my request of the specific needs of a browser that serves my interest and purpose, one in which is very much entwined with the work I do online as what I do for a living.

The insults Firefox perpetuates against users like me in providing phony approaches that in the end turn out to be just another dead end is nothing short of nefarious. My attempt for the umpteenth time in trying to put a stop to these updates is a terrible business practice, doing the worst sort of harm, to those who have been most loyal to the Firefox cause.

Just today, despite applying every sort of suggestion to stop these infernal updates, Firefox has once again found a new way to bring me closer to becoming forever alienated.

This morning I noticed browsers all on five computers updated when I specifically had in place every contingency for disabling these updates and so once again, I deleted every last remnant of Firefox off of my computer and started anew with a browser from Old Apps.com after going through my checklist of steps to insure the updates will never cross my path again.

But despite doing everything to stop it, checking never to be updated, having extensions applied manually and a host of other faux approaches to disable the updates, I nearly lost it when noticing that all computers were displaying the latest updates.

After today's latest debacle with the game you play with us users, it came to me like a ton of bricks falling loose right on top of me, how on a smaller scale,you, your tactics, your total obliviousness to the requests needs of our users, reminded me of Microsoft in its heyday.

That's a very sad,tragic legacy to be reminiscent of.

Okay - for YEARS now I've used ONLY Firefox - it had the best extensions and add-ons of any other browser out there. Add to it, it was safe and very quick. So it was my default browser.

This week I logged into my DeviantArt site and odd advertisements started showing up in the lower left and right corners of the browser, unlike anything I'd ever seen before. Add to it, they were very inappropriate! So I assumed that something was wrong, and went through three, as in 3, programs to find out if I had any 'bugs' causing the problems. And of course, there was some kind of nasty bug in Firefox causing all kinds of issues.

So, following the suggestions of the fixer, plus the suggestions here, I deinstalled Firefox (21) then reinstalled the newer version, 23. At first, I thought, "Wow, that is really fast!". When I opened Firefox it didn't go to my home page, it went to the Firefox startup page, along with opening tabs for EVERY add-on and extension!

So, opened Tools, Options and reset the home page to my home page, https://www.google.com

Simple, and something I've done before. I'm a computer geek and have worked on my own additions. So, set up my home page, was working in Firefox, went to youtube to download a video and it wouldn't! So went to DLhelper, read their comments, changed one of the strings, and voila! No problems!

So I thought it was fixed and I was happy. That was last night. This morning I boot the puter and the first thing I do is open Firefox . And what happens? Oh, yes, that's right, NOTHING THAT I WOULD HAVE WANTED! It's back to the Firefox startup page, and it opens tabs for EVERY SINGLE ADD-ON!

Holy carp, getting tired now. So I research from 8 this morning until about an hour ago, so just over 5 hours I keep trying to fix it based on Firefox instructions. Go into about:config, work on the strings, change the home page info, etc. Save it. Go back to Tools, Options and there's my home page. Close Firefox and open it, and what the heck? Again, back to where it was, opening as if I just uploaded this browser. Now I've spent literally HOURS trying to fix this and I'm so frustrated that I'm just about ready to de-install it! My one complaint is that I searched all over to try and find this same problem and cannot find it. Is that true, I'm the only one with this bizarre problem???
