Isithangami Sabeseki

Lolu chungechunge lwabekwa kunqolobane. Uyacelwa ubuze umbuzo omusha uma udinga usizo.

Frequent updates to latest version, non-beta, require enabling all add-ons. Help me keep my Firefox browser!

Kuphostiwe

Every day, multiple times a day, every time I open Firefox (latest updated version 45., non-Beta), multiple tabs open for every single one of my add-ons, prompting me to manually update them. For each update, I must go through a two- or three-step process, pushing a button twice if no restart is required, three times if it is. To say the least, this is driving me up the wall. Sadly, I have yet to find a solution on the support forum. I am a long-time Mozilla devotee. I believe in Mozilla and Firefox, and prefer this non-profit, community-driven product to any commercially-driven alternative -- hands-down. But this constant updating of add-ons is making my Firefox browsing life simply untenable. I cannot continue to do this. Can anyone give me guidance on a way out? I would so love to NOT have to switch to a different browser. Many thanks in advance to this amazing global community.

Impendulo Ewusizo

You might be able to save some time by not restarting until after completing all the other clicks you have to complete to enable your extensions. If you accidentally close all tabs that mention having to restart, there will be links above the relevant extensions on the Add-ons page, and any one of them will do. Either:

  • Ctrl+Shift+a
  • "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons

In the left column, click Extensions.


If Fred's suggestion doesn't help, have you noticed any other settings problems? Sometimes after Windows updates, Firefox doesn't get full permissions and all sorts of settings problems can arise. Shutting down and restarting Windows usually cures that if it is the problem.

Thank you to both FredMcD and jscher2000 for the suggestions. It took me a while to implement and test. I can safely say that, since implementing FredMcD's suggestions above for deleting and then updating the corrupted extension files, things have been updating without multiple tabs opening for update confirmation for about two weeks now. jscher2000's suggestions and the keyboard shortcut were very helpful for getting through it all.

Thank you once again to this wonderful community!
