Re: this new version of ff does not take notice of exceptions for re-direction nor does it take notice when the allow button is pressed. not impressed
my broswer was set to aumatically update so it was the latest version of firefox. there seems to be a number of problems with it which have been overlooked , not enouigh guidance for putting back personal settings, and then even when applied and restart it fails to take notice. this is only the second time in all the all the years of using ff i have had to fall back to an old vrsion. the lastest version is buggy and needs more work. i know 7 has security issues but the lastest versions blocks you from doing what you want
mozilla really should do more thorough testing before imposing an update
Second, each version undergoes a lot of testing, but because everyone tricks out Firefox in their own way, and it runs on a diversity of systems, there will always be individual problems that were not foreseen at the time of release. This can't be avoided, but the volunteers here help people work through them.
It also sometimes happens that settings files become corrupted during an update. In some cases, it can be fixed with a setting, utility, or add-on, and in other cases, the file needs to be deleted and rebuilt. But no point diving into details until you are on a more recent version.
