Firefox installs updates without my permission and then deletes everything - logins, cookies, bookmarks, view settings, all history.

Now this has happened 3 times in less than a month. And it seems to happen randomly. It is likely related to a new update. I get alerts for updates and this time when the alert pop up showed up I declined by clicking "not now". I had also changed my preferences to only install updates with my permission. That is ignored by Firefox. Instead this morning I walked away from my computer for a few minutes and when I returned every this was gone the "this is embarrassing" screen was there but the only restore choice was to "search Marquis".

There is some type of conflict going on and I can't figure it out. I am using a MacBook running 10.12.6 and I have used Firefox for years. The most recent change was to a different internet provider. But the problem with Firefox deleting my info started before that. Something seems to crash within Firefox and it may automatically restart and then install an new update that deletes everything. That is just my guess. I don't really understand a lot of this and don't want to spend hours learning about browsers. The last time it happened I spent a long time trying to follow the suggestions for getting my history and everything else back but none of that worked. So I've given up on retrieving anything and apparently even having a history because it's always going to be randomly delete by Firefox.

Maybe Firefox is not the right browser for me anymore? What are the requirements?

Thanks for any suggestions as to what might be causing this.

MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 Firefox 88.0.1 (64-bit)

All recent Firefox versions have killer bugs.

A new one was actually trying to login here. The error message said 'Cookies must be enabled' and I couldn't get further. Cookies *were* enabled! I shut down Firefox, and re-opened, and all was then OK.

. Web pages with scripts are often completely blank. . Pop-ups are often blank. If not they often don't work, like (critically) Ebay login. . View source (CMD U) works for new pages. However doesn't update if the source page changes.

 I do use <CMD U> from the changed front page.

A silly one is that the keypress to 'Copy Link' was deviously 'A', but not shown. It has now changed to 'L' and still not shown. Why? I very much prefer Firefox, and all the many shortcuts are memorised (well bar 'L' (8-)# )

However I so often now have to use Safari or Chrome to get around the bugs. This is a pain as the interfaces are different, and specifically 'View Source' never has a shortcut key. They also have their own bugs!

This glitch happens since I've started using Firefox several years ago: every time I start Firefox it extends its vertical size by adding some pixels to its top and bottom.

How can I stop it? Restore xulstore.json each time I want to restore the FF window size doesn't look like a good idea.

Attached are screenshots of xulstore.json (colored is the current and black is the backup ones) to show the glitch clearly.

I'm currently using Windows 10 Pro.

I used to play RealBridge with Firefox 86 and previous versions by using a simple USB WebCam; when I udpdated Firefox to 88.0, RealBridge did not open properly the same USB2 Webcam. I had to recover back my Window 7 professional in order to obtain back the Firefox 86.01, then my USB WebCam turned back to work. Now I locked the Firefox autoupdate. I did not change any other set-up, what can I do ? I solved the problem by uninstalling Firefox and then by doing a new clean reinstall.

Recently (a few days), I have noticed that math formulas are displayed as plain Latex code in a Moodle-based course viewed on my windows Firefox browser. There is no problem with other browsers and android devices. It seems to be related to the automatic update to the version 88 of the Firefox browser. Is any one else facing this problem? Does anybody know a solution?

Is there anything else I can do, or is all lost? 1200 is a lot, and those tabs hold great value to me. So I'm kind of desperate right now. Any help would be immensely valued!
