I have always kept my Mozilla Firefox to Firefox 55.0. However, even though I have my Update set to never, when I opened my browser this morning it updated to 72.something or other. That version was missing all of my bookmarks and my saved passwords. After reinstalling 55.0 I found my bookmarks and got them reinstalled but even with all of the so-called help articles I cannot find any of my passwords, and I had a lot of them! All I can tell is that under the about:profiles there is only one listed and that's the current one. Can anyone help me find and reinstall my passwords?

FireFox has disabled several add-ons that I like due to "add-on signing" and not being verified. As far as I can tell there is no way to override this. I DO NOT appreciate FireFox taking away options and treating its users like children. Which was the last FireFox before this "add-on signing" crapola?

Since the bug-outbreak thing happened a few days ago, all or most of my addons have stopped working, forcing me to use them as temporary ones. I understand that there was a fix rolled out for the latest version of FireFox but I sadly cannot that version. This whole thing confuses me deeply. I've got into about:config, disabled the need to have them signed, used the addon going around that adds the fix, tried a bunch of methods I saw all over the place but nothing seems to be working. I sadly do need the use of the old addon methods. (Not to mention some other changes visually were just flat out ugly with no fix in sight.)

I'm told all of the past version fixes only work on the 'ESR' versions. Where I'm stuck on FireFox 55.

Is there no way to just force addons to stay on even if not signed in the first place? Or auto-load temporary addons upon FireFox launching?

Add-ons/Extension Update: FireFox Extension Fixes Released! Updates for Versions 47-thru-65!

Updates – Last updated 14:35 PST May 14, 2019. We expect this to be our final update.

  • If you are running Firefox versions 61 – 65 and 1) did not receive the deployed fix and 2) do not want to update to the current version (which includes the permanent fix): Install This Extension to resolve the expired security certificate issue and re-enable extensions and themes.
  • If you are running Firefox versions 57 – 60: Install This Extension to resolve the expired security certificate issue and re-enable extensions and themes.
  • If you are running Firefox versions 47 – 56: install This Extension to resolve the expired security certificate issue and re-enable extensions and themes.



Updates – Last Updated: 17:04 EDT May 9, 2019

A less technical blog post about the outage is also available. If you enabled telemetry to get the initial fix, we’re deleting all data collected since May 4. (May 9, 17:04 EDT)

Mozilla CTO Eric Rescorla posted a blog on the technical details of what went wrong last weekend.



Updates – Last Updated: 19:28 EDT May 8 2019

We’ve released Firefox 66.0.5 for Desktop and Android, and Firefox ESR 60.6.3, which include the permanent fix for re-enabling add-ons that were disabled starting on May 3rd. The initial, temporary fix that was deployed May 4th through the Studies system is replaced by these updates, and we recommend updating as soon as possible. Users who enabled Studies to receive the temporary fix, and have updated to the permanent fix, can now disable Studies if they desire.

For users who cannot update to the latest version of Firefox or Firefox ESR, we plan to distribute an update that automatically applies the fix to versions 52 through 60. This fix will also be available as a user-installable extension. For anyone still experiencing issues in versions 61 through 65, we plan to distribute a fix through a user-installable extension. These extensions will not require users to enable Studies, and we’ll provide an update when they are available.



"Updates – Last Updated: 11:51 EDT May 8 2019 (From Mozilla Blog)

Firefox 66.0.5 has been released, and we recommend that people update to that version if they continue to experience problems with extensions being disabled. You’ll get an update notification within 24 hours, or you can initiate an update manually.
An update to ESR 60.6.3 is also available as of May 8th. We’re continuing to work on a fix for older versions of Firefox, and will update this post and on social media as we have more information."



A Firefox release has been pushed — version 66.0.4 on Desktop and Android, and version 60.6.2 for ESR. This release repairs the certificate chain to re-enable web extensions, themes, search engines, and language packs that had been disabled (Bug 1549061).

There are remaining issues that we are actively working to resolve, but we wanted to get this fix out before Monday to lessen the impact of disabled add-ons before the start of the week. More information about the remaining issues can be found by clicking on the links to the release notes above. (May 5, 16:25 EDT)



"Last Updated: 00:54 EDT May 5 2019

Updates:

Some users are reporting that they do not have the “hotfix-update-xpi-signing-intermediate-bug-1548973” study active in “about:studies”.

Rather than using work-arounds, which can lead to issues later on, we strongly recommend that you continue to wait. If it’s possible for you to receive the hotfix, you should get it by 6am EDT, 24 hours after it was first released.

For everyone else, we are working to ship a more permanent solution. (May 5, 00:54 EDT)

There are a number of work-arounds being discussed in the community. These are not recommended as they may conflict with fixes we are deploying. We’ll let you know when further updates are available that we recommend, and appreciate your patience. (May 4, 15:01 EDT)"

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.

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.

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.

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?

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?

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.

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.
