Hi.

In Firefox 63 the option to never check for updates was removed. The release notes suggest to create a policies.json to disable updates. This does not result in similar behaviour! It does indeed stop the checks for updates, but it also disables the option of manually checking for updates. So this is not the same!

I'd like to know how I can disable the auto checking for updates, but keep the option to manually check and update.

I found this thread regarding a beta version of Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1232918 but that does not give an answer to my question.

I typically check for updates every few days, but I do not want Firefox to check automatically and/or install without my express permission. I seem to be left with renaming the policies file every time I want to check for updates. Cumbersome and very user unfriendly.

I would like to get back to the behaviour I have used for many years. To wit: I click on 'About Firefox' and I can see the version number without any checks or updates starting without my consent. I am presented with a button to check for updates. If I click it, I am presented with either a message stating I am up to date, or an option to update without it automatically doing so. And only if I then click to confirm that I indeed want to update, it starts downloading said update and installing it. This is what I want back please. How do I make that happen? Thanks.

I wonder why this very important field is removed. I have over 10 years of information recorded in this field for reference. This seems completely unneccessary to remove it. At least, could you provide an import tools so that user can move those description into some other field in the bookmark?

I saw many people asked this question, and no solution works for me. By exporting the information to a html is not enough, because I need to manually handle over 10 years of description information, which is foolish.

Hello, Ive got Quantum 63.01 running on macbook pro. Yahoo barging in as the 'default search engine'. I go to my preference page I delete it, google is back to being my default search engine. A few days later, boom- there is yahoo again showing up as the default. This goes on several times a week, and its driving me nuts. If I didnt like yahoo before, I really hate them now. Ive gone through all of your solutions, there is nothing in my extensions or add-ons that shouldnt be there. So why does this continue to happen? I need to get rid of yahoo now. I even ran yahoo through the finder and there is nothing on my laptop for yahoo. Isnt there a script I can look for in firefox that can be deleted or something?? Any and all help is truly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I've always been able to have several videos playing at once in separate tabs.

Since a few days ago, as soon as I start the 2nd video, the first video's audio continues but the video freezes. To get the video moving again I have to turn it off and back on. Then it will start moving again, but the other's video instantly stops.

I've been able to have multiple videos playing always, until now.

On Firefox and Google Chrome, whenever I try to access Imgur, the page states that it is not redirecting properly, and that an error has occurred whilst trying to connect.

Online solutions always tell me to keep clearing my cookies, download history, and browsing history. I've done all of those things and yet none of those have worked. Another website told me that deleting the cookies.sqlite folder in Firefox's profile folder would fix the issue, and yet it hasn't

The redirect error stops me from accessing Imgur, which is a shame because it basically stops me from using the website to upload images anymore. Is there a proper, working solution to this? I've tried all the solutions online and yet none of them seem to work.

Since the latest updates, I now am experiencing lockup issues when accessing secure sites which I previously was able to load. Firefox shows it is busy but totally locks up and I have to use task Manager to force Firefox to close. Typically occurring during the login or verification when entering the sites.

I have used Firefox since its creation and this is the first time I have had issues of this nature. It is my default browser.

Hi all -

I logged in to my web based email via Firefox and there was a file attachment, which I viewed in the webmail application.

It looked like all the form data was removed from the letter, so I downloaded the word file to my desktop.

Upon opening the document in Microsoft Word 2016, all the data was there!

Can someone point to the cause and how I can correct this?

Is it Office 2016?

I'm a bit mystified. Never seen anything quite like it. No malware.

TIA :)

Dear experts,

I'm trying to restore a .json bookmarks backup produced on a 60.0 firefox installation. When trying to restore it, I select the file, confirm the replace dialog and press OK. All the existing bookmarks are deleted but no bookmarks are imported. No error message is issued and no bookmarks are imported. No Firefox activity can be seen (no CPU consumption, no network or disk I/O, no increase in RAM used by Firefox). I have even waited 24h just in case, but still does nothing. I do *NOT* receive an "Unable to process backup file message.

I am able to convert the JSON to HTML using https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/bookbackreader.html, but it does not preserve neither the tags nor the folder structure and without the tags to locate the bookmarks they are all but useless.

I'm trying to restore in a laptop running Windows 10 and for the time being, I have no access to any other computer with a different Operating System.

I have tried different Firefox releases including the latest and the 60.3.0esr both 32 and 64 bits editions.

The disk of the PC where the Firefox which produced the backup is broken, so restoring the places.sqlite file or producing another backup or a bookmark export is not an option.

Do you know how can I get this backup restored?

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Jon

When viewing a picture in Firefox, it used to display the picture itself as a bookmark/favicon in its tab. That was super useful for anyone working with multiple tabs of pictures. But it stopped working somewhere between versions 62 and 63. Now it won't show anything or, at best, just the website's favicon if it's an online picture (please refer to the attached picture). How can I get that feature working again?

Note: "browser.chrome.favicons" doesn't exist in "about:config" in current version. So I guess solutions involving it won't work.

I tried Firefox in safe mode and it made no difference.

I no longer see ads when I read email, look at a magazine or newspaper article etc. Some sites don't like this and won't let me view what's on them because I am blocking ads. I have looked at Options>Privacy and Security>Tracking Protection and it is not turned on. It is only on when I use a privacy window which I am not using. I have no idea where to look to be able to modify this. I have cookies enabled.

I will admit I have far fewer crashes now that the ads do not display in email and I am happy about that but when a site I belong to won't let me read there because ads are blocked that becomes a problem. Do I have any control over this feature? I only use Firefox on my pc that runs Win 7 Professional and I use version 60.3 esr 32 bit because I still run into situations where Java is required and it was explained in an earlier question that I should use Firefox esr because of this.

Hello,

Firefox is very slow connecting to web pages. Everytime I click a link there is a 5-10s loading time (wheel spinning) before the web page starts to load. Once it starts, the page loads very quickly and runs normally. I'm not seeing this issue on internet explorer or chrome. I am on Win10 Enterprise.

I don't recall having this issue on the first install, I think it started in the last month. I tried reinstalling firefox and disabling all add-ins.

Any thoughts on a solution? I love Firefox but I've been forced to switch to Chrome until I resolve this issue :(

I'm posting this from my XP machine since I don't want to do anything more on my Windows 7 laptop (where the issue exists) that might cause me untold grief. I had seen the message to "Restart Firefox to Update" for several days but was busy doing 'stuff' so I held off. Was also getting messages that Adobe Acrobat Reader had been updated successfully and that I should restart for the update to take effect. Finally, since I wanted to replace my AVG Free AV with ZoneAlarm Internet Security, I decided it was time to close all my active programs, including Firefox, remove AVG Free AV, download and install ZoneAlarm Internet Security and then shut down my laptop in order to install any Windows 7 updates. In order to shut down Firefox while maintaining all my Windows and Tabs, I typically just pull-down the Menu and select 'Exit'. When I open Firefox again, I select 'Restore previous session", my Windows all come up and my tabs are all there and I'm off to the races! However, when I tried that this time, I received a warning that I had 8 Windows open and 441??? tabs (I have a lot but it is nowhere near that number [150 maybe]) in use and they would all be closed if I chose to exit. Since this is my way of remembering all of the things that I am working on at any given time, I DEFINITELY DIDN'T WANT TO DO THAT!! So, the only choice I had seemed to be to click on the "Restart Firefox to Update" button in the "Help" --> "About Firefox" dialog box. However, I did that about 6 hours ago and the little blue 'circle' just keeps 'spinning' and the hard drive access light flashes periodically (more so, within the first 30 minutes or so after clicking on the 'Restart' button) but the 'Restart' has not completed. I guess I will have to abort the update somehow but I don't want to do that part way through a 'Restart' and I DEFINITELY DON'T WANT TO LOSE MY OPEN TABS!!! What should I do to be able to get back to productive work using Firefox?!
