Is there any way to temporarily disable Firefox (and Thunderbird) update reminders? Mozilla seems to be updating its software so often that I'm getting too many reminders and it's interfering with my work flow. I understand the need to keep software up to date as often as possible but this has now got ridiculous, and I am on the verge of changing my default browser from Firefox to Safari, Chrome or Vivaldi. Please stop forcing every little tiny update onto your users!

Or is there some sneaky little way I haven't noticed under Preferences which already does enable me to do this?

I have been trying to install Firefox on a Windows computer running Windows 10 Pro. I have two users on the computer. I have installed Firefox successfully on the main user but every time I try to install for the second user, it does not install. it says it failed and leaves a strange icon on the desktop which, when I click, it deletes the file. I am not sure why. I have installed the same on 11 other computers with two users and no problem with those ones.

No matter what version of FireFox i use it constantly lock`s up , freezes. Nothing works to resolve the issue, restarting the desktop, refreshing the desktop. The only thing i can do is kill the process or reboot but the problem just keeps coming back without fail. I`m using deb 10.6 with a dell i5 4th, gen with plenty of ram and hdd space, it`s a new install at that only about a week old. I have noticed this has been a problem with FF ever since i started using it many years ago.\ The others are all the same, it seems that people and companies don`t take much pride in their work anymore. You see this everywhere not just with FF.

I also noticed that when "Share Data" is checked Wikipedia is mentioned, this site is so subjective it is not allowed to be used by any University student for research so why it it doing being used here ? The other problem is if plugin info can be seen and recorded why are extensions allowed in the store that supposedly block this info from being collected when they don`t work, this feature proves it, if it's supposed to be blocked then it would not be published in the form even after clicking "Share Data" clicking anything is irreverent it should be blocked no matter what.

Firefox unexpectedly quit, open tabs lost when MacBook Pro's charge died. After charging, did restart since Menu button to access History was missing (only menu bar visible). It returned, but unable to restore closed tabs (as I've done in the past) - History shows it to be "empty." I've spent hours searching Mozilla Support...can anyone please help? These 8-10 tabs must be somewhere!

I am inquiring what can be done to overcome this freeze on functionality. If the only folder that still functions is "Important", sending and receiving messages becomes largely impossible, or means sending extra messages, phone calls, or whatever else can be invented. Is this a general problem, I wonder? Any proposed swolutions will be much appreciated.

I can no longer stream CBS All Access. They are saying that I have some kind of ad blocking problem in my software therefore they cannot play movies with their ads. Firefox recently did a download on Nov. 18. It was 78.5 Oesr. Could that be the problem? Does 78.5 Oesr have some kind of an ad blocker? If so, how can I uninstall it?

Amazon prime video will no longer play on Firefox. This started on 11/15/2020. Amazon Prime store and other features work fine, but when you select a video, the Amazon page and Firefox screen freezes in that the cursor travels over the screen and page but no matter where you click you get no response. You have to refresh the page and reload Amazon to get functionality back. I can stream video on Safari, but not on Firefox, and Firefox is my browser of choice as it is more content feature rich than Safari. I need to get my Amazon video streaming working again. Two additional issues, this is now happening with YouTube too. You can watch YouTube videos, but they take a great deal, sometimes over a minute or two, to load. Finally, I get a message on my Firefox page when I try to load Coinbase that I have to use Chrome, an idea that I detest, using any Google product. Please provide me with some answers and solutions. I have posed a number of questions regarding loss of use and features on the version of Firefox in the last week, and not one of them has been responded too, or answered, which really disappoints me as far as my opinion of the support you offer, volunteer or not. Not trying to bust your chops, but some support would be better than none. Thanks for your input. PLEASE give me a solution so I can continue to use Firefox. BTW when I clicked the " share data" button below, it erased over 30 minutes of work I did in this field and answer, and I had to start again from scratch, so I have over an hour invested in trying to contact you and get some support.

Hello,

Foreword: i already had problem with FF browsing session when i had two windows open and somehow the secondary with not important tabs was closed as the last one and then there was problem to restore the main one.

Question: So in short i have important session open and two browser windows and i want to make a quick backup of the main one or of the both sessions and be able to restore all the opened tabs from this backup easily.

What is the best approach to do it?

Related FAQ: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles#w_backing-up-your-profile But it is about profile, not just opened tabs and it is manual task, not some built in GUI function.

My OS and findings: I am on Linux and i have found this: $ cd ~/.mozilla/firefox/; ls -l $ cd myprofilename/sessionstore-backups;ls -lt recovery.jsonlz4 recovery.baklz4 previous.jsonlz4 upgrade.jsonlz4-202010... ... Do i have to quit FF, then backup the sessionstore-backups and then after i want restore, do the same but only replace the folder? Is there more simple, better way?

This exact same problem as question : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1286412

I was changing my banking password and Firefox offered to generate the password which I clicked on. The password was changed successfully but I was NOT asked if I want to save it or not. It seems the password change was done through an AJAX call which firefox didn't handle.

My question is: How do I get that password back?

Hi there,

Every time Firefox updates it crashes the work that I am doing on my websites and I have to restart again. In occassions, it makes my extension to stop working properly, which is more annoying cause Firefox is just a tool and the extensions are the only reason why I stay in Firefox and I do not switch to Chrome.

In the past, you could select when to update, that is I updated when I wanted and I had time and not in the middle of a process or line of daily tasks.

I have Ubuntu, and I select the repositories that I want to update everytime. It is time consuming, but I do not want to risk that Lastpass stop working and I have to look for other ways to findout my passwords.

Is there anyway to disable update in Firefox as it was in the past and made me very happy?

This post https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1199816 opted as solution "There is no reason to use an old version of Firefox"... well, congratulations for not thinking on your clients, that is a terrible response cause to take the power of your users to update whenever they want and take it for yourself.

Anyway, I will switch to Chrome as it does not autoupdate unless I want. Thanks

Thanks,

                Carlos
