Firefox breaks all my important add-ons. Without these add-ons, Firefox is not worth using, at least not to me. The add-ons I use are:

 (1) Add Bookmark Here ^2
 (2) All Tabs Helper
 (3) FlashGot
 (4) Session Manager

I am currently using Firefox 55.0.3 (64-bit).

Yes, I know it's not secure. I don't care.

Yes, I have looked for replacements for each of these these add-ons. I found none.

Yes, I turned off updates. Yes, I turned off "Use a background service to install updates". Firefox still updated to 56.

I have replaced the Firefox utility "updater.exe" with a program that does nothing. Will that stop updates from occurring? If not, what else can I do?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

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 have Firefox set never to remember cookies except for a few select sites and to erase cookies and internet history upon closing the browser. Indeed, the sites outside my whitelist have always acted as if cookies are disabled for them (giving "you must enable cookies" if I attempt to log in, etc.). I also am required to re-log in to whitelisted sites after relaunching the browser, of course.

However, I just ran CCleaner, and its deletion log listed over 1400 Firefox cookies, a great many from sites I haven't visited in months. Apparently, Firefox's "never store cookies" option either isn't working due to a glitch or just doesn't work period, appearing to the user not to store cookies but just storing and not deleting them anyway.

1. Does Firefox just save cookies anyhow no matter your preferences, or is this a glitch? If it is a glitch, how do I resolve it? 2. Where is the age-old cookie information that CCleaner deleted stored, so I can delete it manually in the future?

(Note: Yes, I know about CCleaner's privacy concerns, but that's beside this particular point.)

Thanks in advance for any help.

I'm trying to connect to a miniature secure web server which has a self-signed certificate, but for some reason in https mode Firefox displays the entire raw HTTP result as the website content.

If I turn off the secure layer (so it's sending the HTTP response in cleartext) then it works and the webpage gets rendered as expected.

It seems like only Firefox is affected. I have tested two other browsers and there the HTTP protocol gets parsed, and the page displays as intended.

changing icons for quantum

New versions of Firefox regularly break things. Whether it's Netflix/Stan/Pronto or other streaming services, add-ons, re-invent the UI, some websites just stop working properly with the newer version or a number of other things.

I have 10 PCs here. We are using 55.0.3 because it was the last version with a UI that we were all familiar with, worked with all the services we use, supported all the add-ons and more. It's very outdated but I want to keep all PCs on a known working environment.

So I'm currently testing 61.0.2 (Not 62.0 because it's a zero release, which always have issues). I've managed to find solutions for most annoyances regarding add ons and using Photon-Australis to get back the curved tabs (The square look is just plain disgusting). I've got the reload icon back in the address bar, and hidden the 3 dots with a 30 second timeout so I will likely never have to be annoyed by it. I've got rid of the wasted spaces on the address bar too.

I use a space theme (Earth from space). It uses a cyan font. On the white tabs it's all but invisible. Using the dark theme fixes that, but I'd like to have the tabs the same color as the background of the address bar as in v55. Reading through the userchrome.css file I just get lost.

The other thing I'd like to preserve are the icons for home, download and bookmarks, Is there a way to preserve the icons that are used in v55 rather than the uglier ones use in v61?

I'm sorry for coming across so negatively, it' just I don't get why developers keep changing UIs that are working. Change for the sake of change, which just adds frustration. Firefox is not the only program. Windows is probably the worst. So please don't be offended.

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.

Hi all,

Firefox has been updating itself successfully over the past year, but today when I followed the most recent update (I think I had version 60.8 prior to the update), it didn't restart. When I tried running it using the command line, I got the error message:

firefox: symbol lookup error: libxul.so: undefined symbol: dbus_validate_bus_name

For now, I reverted back to an old version (55).

Any tips on how to resolve this problem?

I'm using firefox on linux 32bit with Fedora 17
