I'd like to use the firefox default downloader because of its convenience - one click downloads for most of the sites I use.

The default downloader also works wonders with some of the extensions I'm using.

The problem is that it 'always' downloads at about 20% of what my internet is capale of, regardless of which site I'm downloading from. I'm using free download manager to counter act this issue, but it makes the download process tedious because I have to change the file name of each download (it doesnt pick up the name for some downloads), and it involves copying and pasting the download link each time there is a firefox update, since the free dowload manager plugin for firefox takes long to be updated each time.

My home network is fairly standard, I'm not using any proxies, no VPNs, just plain old adsl and wifi. I'm having this issue on all my devices at home by the way. Some do go a bit faster, but almost never above 180KB/s

Is there any setting in options or even in the config (about:config) that I can change to try and fix this?

In ff57, the newtab page changed. There was a workaround. In ff60, it no longer works.

You said this (attached), not long ago. It doesn't work w/ ff60. I will not upgrade until/unless you tell me how to do this in ff60 -- I don't give a **** how much more secure it is (deck chairs on the Titanic, y'know...).

You broke it -- you fix it.

(This isn't fun for you, either -- I know! Why!!!???)

Even though my bookmarks are sorted alphabetically, when I view them in the bookmarks sidebar filtered by a tag, they're not in alphabetical order anymore.

I want the bookmarks sidebar to display bookmarks alphabetically, AFTER I've filtered them by a tag. I've sorted my bookmarks, and when I don't filter them by a tag, they appear alphabetically in the sidebar. However, if I filter them by a tag I've assigned to some bookmarks (by typing the tag into the text box at the top of the bookmarks sidebar) the tagged bookmarks appear in what appears to be an arbitrary order. Since displaying them in alphabetical order would be the easiest thing to do -- since the bookmarks are already alphabetized! -- why is there extra work done to scramble the bookmarks when filtered by a tag? Thanks in advance.

With 4 different user accounts on our Windows 7 PC, we need each user to have their own chosen version of Firefox. One wants to stay with an older version, another wants the latest all the time.

There must be a way to install and make each FF version available only to the user currently on the computer. Each user has their own AppData folder after all.

And, no, not interested in the profiles nonsense. Want different versions of FF installed but each version only available to the user who installed it.

I've been using ImageBlocker 0.0.6, to globally block images over a certain size (with a host whitelist), which is crude but mostly works. Unfortunately I discovered that it permanently (?) disables the Yet Another Remove-It Permanently addon, which I use even more. Are there currently any other solutions? There can't be just one? I am using FF 55.0 EME-free with Windows. Thanks for any advice.

I am required to purchase and install a particular certificates in order to get onto a government website. I am using version 55 and am not allowed to update the version because I have to keep the version that I originally installed the certificate under. Recently my certificates have disappeared. When I view "Your Certificates" the box is blank. I completely uninstalled Firefox, reinstalled version 55, and redownloaded my certificate and the certificate worked and was showing in the "Your certificates". However, when I closed out the browser and opened it back up later, my certificates are blank again. Do you know what's causing this?

Hi: I am trying to decide do I just totally give up on Firefox after all these years and move to Chrome or is there some logical path for addons planned/in process that I do not know about.

It is like Firefox Management Team/Committee team made this technical decision with little understanding on the impact to the developers that had put in hard yards for years, or users who had been using these addons. I am at a loss when I try to understand why would they jeopardise so much.

Since Firefox went to that "new firefox", sorry I dont know the technical lingo, most of the addons I use became unavailable. I have since written to each developer to ask, will they be upgrading their addon and the answer is NO. So basically Firefox is only useful to me if

  • I stay in the old version on Mac Sierra OSX (55.0.3).
  • For the new windows 10 brand new laptop I tried also to create using the new Firefox and it was very unsuccessful as there are no addons even close to what I was using.

For the Cookies controller there are some close but nothing as good as this addon in terms of how I used it -- manually removed cookies.

On my Mac Firefox 55.0.3, I have the following addons (all these have the LEGACY yellow highlight tag in the list)

1 Cookie Controller

2 Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar

3 Session Manager

4 New Add On Bar

5 Add Bookmarks Here

6 Change Bookmark Recent Folder List Length

7 Open Bookmarks in New Tab

8 Download Status Bar

9 AutoPin Tab

10 Close Tab Button

11 Tab Open/Close Control

12 and uBlock Origin I cannot update as it says on its webpage, with this technical change, it is not supported, so not upgrade it.

Any practical advice?

Hi

I installed the new Firefox on Windows 10 and after install the first thing I see it asking me for email... when I look closer it relates to Sync. This is most concerning to me.

As it encourages newbies to sign up to Sync WITHOUT realising the risk of using sync. Please correct me if I am wrong, my understanding is - Firefox still has not made a notifier that sync is being used, when it is being used. - In firefox we have no ability to turn OFF sync forever. Require a passcode to turn it ON.

It is easier for someone to hack a computer and activate sync wihtout you knowing. It happened to me and I only realised when they tried to access my gmail account. And upon investigation I discovered they had turned Firefox Sync on. So I dont want to use Firefox Sync ever.

It happened to a few of my friends and they told me it was reported to firefox. But i dont see any evidence their feedback was taken on.

Please advise.

Thankyou kindly for your time.

This has been bothering me for ages. Would somebody mind visiting the above web site, clicking the heading for a news article with at least several comments, then scrolling down to those comments and clicking Reply on a few of them? What's supposed to happen is that the comments form that normally appears at the end of the comments jumps up and appears indented under the Reply button. I assume it works normally for you? Here, at most, the page scrolls a little but the form never appears.

The bigger problem is that this happens with every browser on this Windows 7 PC, not just Firefox, suggesting that a script or something is being blocked system-wide...but that doesn't appear to be the case. Launching Firefox's debug tools, all requested files either load (i.e. show a byte count) or list "cached". Opera Mini, running in the MicroEmulator Java console does work, BTW. I often block domains in the HOSTS file, but switch this off during testing, and it makes no difference. There is actually no antivirus or other software currently installed, but I do run MalWareBytes manually sometimes.

I am not looking for interactive problem-solving, as I'm very tech savvy and that's likely beyond the scope of this site anyway. I was hoping, though, that somebody more savvy with Javascript would take a quick look at the code and note the script files involved. I see most of the processing is in comment-reply.js. I used to be fair with Javascript but haven't touched it in nearly 10 years, and am still understanding IDE-style debugging.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I back-up my files off-site daily and I've noticed quite a few unknown type files such as "https+++" among others. Some of these are quite large adding to the back-up time and I'm sure most of them are not needed.

So, my question is: If my computer was damaged beyond repair or stolen, which files/folders would I need to get me back to the last time I used Firefox?

I'm still using Firefox v. 55.0.3 as the later updates do not allow me to use the "Manage Tabs" add-on and that is the best feature by far for me. W/o that add-on I may as well be using Chrome.
