Some websites report that I have an old outdated version of firefox. But this is not true. I always use the latest version in 64bit under Windows 7. One of these websites says I use Firefox 57.

I cannot get access to these sites. What may be the reason? I read this could be an outdated version of wordpress that these websites are using.

When I click on "show details" below, it also reports Firefox 57 but it is 76.0.1. What's wrong?

Background: I just had to rebuild my Linux system partition from backup.

After doing this I discovered that although most websites behave perfectly with Firefox, there is one website which now never appears in the history though I have visited the pages with no problem.

This is a problem because I use the change in color of links to the website to keep track of which pages I have visited. I have looked to see if Firefox has a list of sites which are not tracked but have been unable to find it.

PS, after the restore all my old history was restored including visits to the website which is now causing a problem.

First, I just had a major system crash, had to re-install Linux Mint and through my own stupidity, relied on the wrong backups for my firefox configuration. So I lost my Firefox 52 install with all of my extensions (that still worked). Now, I'm running v. 57 Quantum, and a few things aren't working correctly.

First, the MAJOR problem: when I open a link from a bookmark, it's clobbering an existing tab that I was using (that's why it was open, obviously). That is completely unsat and can not be allowed to continue. How do I correct this? I can't find the option under settings-->tabs to fix this problem.

Second issue (major annoyance): I can no longer create a bookmark directly in a bookmark folder on the bookmark toolbar. I used to be able to open that bookmark folder, and the first option was to bookmark the currently open tab. That option has vanished, and i use that all the time. How do I restore that?

Actually, one more issue: I have two tabs that are pinned and are supposed to be protected (i.e., nothing can clobber them, and I can't close them without deliberately turning the protection off (context menu right-clicking on tab). I need that back, because for some reason, firefox thinks it's ok to open a bookmark in those tabs, too, when it most definitely is NOT ok.

Thanks, Jim Graham

I have Ubuntu 17.04, and my current FF is 57. I have tried updating several times without success, and now have tried the following:-

  • Downloaded FF66, and from Terminal tried to run the "updater" script, which fails with "./updater: error while loading shared libraries: libmozsqlite3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
  • I tried running the firefox from the same directory, and a FF 57 browser window appears.
  • Looked at software updater, and it showed that FF66 is installed, and when I clicked the "Launch" button, nothing happened.

I have looked for help online without success, and now hope someone will be able to help me get it running. Many thanks,

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)"

From that time point , session restore tabs never shows up. Close firefox by kill process, the size of Recovery.jsonlz4 increased accordingly,

Why do more and more apps continue to disappear after each upgrade? There are so many apps that I love that are no longer available or not compatible? And often no replacements, this is what made Firefox so awesome was the apps. Now I have virtually nothing of the apps that I use and there are some where I have all kinds of files with information from them I cannot get to and I REALLY wan! For example 'scrapbook'. for example; I will have to go into thousands and thousands of files one at a time to get them. I hate the upgrades that you are doing more and more than I like them. I find myself either downgrading in frustration or using Chrome. You either have to stop upgrading so fast, make it so more apps are still compatible, or have a downgraded version before Quantum available. (easiest- offer a pre Quantum version.) If Firefox is for the people, than make it what the people want.

I would like to have a conversation with the developer who had the brilliant idea of applying LZ4 to the formerly plain text session backup files that were used since the beginning and worked perfectly fine.

What is the name of the person whose idea it was to add a “feature” to Firefox that made recovering lost sessions so much easier and saving 3 MB of my disk space for wasting over 100 minutes of my time figuring out how to handle LZ4 works and how to get the plain text that would normally be written directly to the disk after Firefox failed to recover the session after a crash and after file system readability problems?

And did the community explicitly ask for LZ4? Were there users of Mozilla Firefox that recommended LZ4? Who exactly had the idea of implementing LZ4?

Will places.sqlitelz4 (or “places.sqlite.lz4”) become the next victim of lz4?

Thanks in advance.

Note that I'm NOT asking about address-bar suggestions, but the address bar itself. There's a little info icon with a green lock followed by the url. Some websites (ex. the Washington Post) display a title (also in green) next to the lock and before the URL. It can be quite long, and makes the address bar inaccessible --- even for not-so-narrow windows. When this happens, there is no typeable area or visible text area to select. The only way to enter a new URL is to first navigate away using the back button (or open a new tab/window). I assume this either is very obnoxious marketing or bad configuration on the website's part. Is there a way to disable the display of anything but the lock itself? Again, to be clear, I am speaking solely of the address bar itself --- not the drop down suggestions or any other part of the browser window.

I tried disabling favicons and site icons (I figured it could be some sort of big icon), but that didn't work. Disabling extensions had no effect either --- so it's clearly firefox proper. FF 57.0.1.

Any help would be appreciated!

Cheers, Ken
