Just had to rewrite this post because this site inadvertently refreshed screen and lost my content!

I used Firefox 56.0.2 because I NEED to use legacy add-ons that ensure security and safety, these add-ons have no alternative in Quantum and no update. All of my other Add-ons have versions that support this edition of Firefox.

TODAY three of my important Firefox add-on were DISABLED BY FIREFOX, with no warning or caution and without my authority.

The updates were

LASTPASS UBLOCK ORIGIN GHOSTERY

I think it is extremely unlikely that these three companies unilaterally and randomly all decided to stop using the add-ons on the SAME DAY. I might have left those companies reviews expressing my concern by now that they have been disabled I can’t leave a review. So there is this fake positive picture painted of reviews on Mozilla site.

So I can only presume that it was MOZILLA FIREFOX that FORCED this on me, pitting my loyalty of one set of add-ons with another.

I am DISGUSTED by this behaviour from Mozilla, oh yes I am sure they will want to blame the add-on providers but it will be under their suggestion, rules or whatever.

I still can’t update the legacy add-ons (which still work) nor is there any alternative in Quantum.

I was quite happy in my time shell using add-ons I trusted and relied upon, that are secure in their own right, SO WHY IS MOZILLA MESSING WITH ME.

I can guess the responses will be just go ahead an upgrade Firefox, but WHY SHOULD I BE FORCED KICKING AND SCREAMING into a version of Firefox that does not meet my needs.

The bigger question is WHY WOULD I TRUST MOZILLA FIREFOX when they can mess with my productivity and give me this problem at their whim when I can choose Opera, Chrome in all of it’s variants and not have this kind of problem. They may be as bad but they have not hurt me already.

So before I go I have to ask this community if they can help me.

1. Is there a fork of the old firefox that allows the install of legacy versions of add-on, i.e. one that does not have Mozilla poking it’s nose in? 2. Is there a setting in About Config that may enable me to override this disabling of the above add-ons?

I have not listed the legacy add-ons that still work because they are clearly not the problem and I am sure that there are many thousands of users that have different legacy add-ons that face this same problem.

It was bad enough that EVERY time I used firefox I got these “your version of firefox is critically out of date” nagware messages and that even after closing them I got more nagging when I scrolled done.

It is MY computer, MY risk, MY choice, if I can’t TRUST Mozilla to let me work in peace then I really do not think I can risk using a later version of Firefox.

If anyone has any constructive advice THAT ANSWERS MY QUESTIONS ABOVE to get this working again I would appreciate it.

I have Firefox set up to always restore all tabs from my previous session and remember my search history, but all my tabs are gone and my search history has been wiped out. And the Restore Previous Session option is grayed out.

I don't even remember how I found most of the tabs that I have up, and I only have some of them bookmarked. Can you please help me get them back? Thank you.

By the way, I don't have Firefox as my default browser, so trying to download my profile didn't work. Do I need to have Firefox as my default browser to solve this problem?

One more thing: I was having some trouble with my internet connection, so I shut down my computer and rebooted my router. Is that why this happened, and does this mean that my tabs are gone forever?

By the way, I do see a folder icon on my desktop that says "Old Firefox Data," but all the data in there is from 2016, so that's not what I'm looking for.

I really need those tabs back. Thanks!

Firefox crashes about once a week. When it does, it resets as though it were a fresh install. My previous session, my "profile" and my new-tab page all go away. Yet somehow it retains my history and bookmarks.

This is on Windows 10. I can detect no common factors other then that it usually happens on a restart. As in, I shut the computer down and all is well; yet when I boot up next, firefox has reset. However it does NOT do it on every shut down because the system gets shut down every night. It's only once a week-ish.

First of all, I've been having this problem in various forms for years. I stopped using Firefox years ago and switched to Pale Moon because of it, which was possibly a little better, but still had issues. I now use Waterfox and Tor Browser, and both have issues as well. So it seems to be an inherent issue with the browser itself. I had issues on XP years ago, then on 7 for years, and now on 10. Both 7 & 10 were/are 64-bit for both OS and browser. I use a lot of tabs, and currently have ~120 open in Firefox; however, currently only ~40 are actually loaded, so it's really not that many, yet the problem still exists.

Basically, one of two things happens, or both: after anywhere from less than a day to several days, the browser will slow down or it will crash. When it slows down, even small things take forever. For example, hovering over a tab will take a few to several seconds for the tab to change color indicating it's being hovered over (which also means clicking on a tab to switch to it takes as long), clicking checkboxes in my email is slow and unresponsive, and typing will freeze every few to several characters. When it gets real bad, the browser will say "Not Responding" and even fade out until it comes back, doing this very, very frequently, until it eventually just crashes.

It also doesn't seem like it could be a hardware issue, considering I've experienced this across multiple computers, and I just had Waterfox slow down with the "small" number of tabs open on my current computer (64GB RAM, Samsung 960 Evo) whereas I've had 500+ tabs open on my older computer (32GB RAM, 850 Evo). In fact, when it just happened, I checked the memory usage and it was using ~10GB, with only ~42% of my total memory being used, so it's not like the system was running low causing paging (not that that should make that much difference with my drive). And Windows and all other programs are fine whenever it happens; it's always just isolated to Firefox/Waterfox/Tor/Pale Moon. I did a garbage collection and a cycle collection, neither of which changed the memory usage or made any improvement, so I then did "minimize memory usage," which may have. I say may because the memory usage is now down to 8GB and Firefox is working well again, but I'm not sure if that's what did it. I have e10s set to 7 processes, which I understand makes it use more memory (though 8-10GB seems awfully high) but, as I said, I have more than enough. It almost seems like when the browsers reach a certain memory use, which seems to vary based on the browser and has nothing to do with the amount of memory available, they start having issues. Tor Browser seems to slow down and crash around 3-3.5GB, for example.

Also, it's doubtful it's add-ons, since I've used different ones over the years and with different browsers, I have almost all disabled in Waterfox, and I'm using even less in Tor, and only NoScript is common between them. I'm convinced the core of the browser is just not coded well enough to handle more than a small handful of tabs, but I'm hopeful somebody can provide some guidance to fix the issue, because otherwise I just don't know if I can stay with *fox, as I need stability in a browser.

Hello , What happens to my current bookmarks & folders I already have saved on my home computer if I sync my Firefox work account to my home Firefox browser as I don't want to lose any of my home computer bookmarks and folders?

Wondering if it will override everything removing what I have already bookmarked or if it will just add my work bookmarks to my home account where I will see both?

Also will everything I have bookmarked on my home account be added after the sync to my work account? Which bookmarks will supersede? Will my home bookmarks get added to my work account?

This is really important as there are some home bookmarks I don't want to lose and that I also don't want synced to my work account? Thanks in advance and I don't see any details anywhere on this but it is really important for someone to know before syncing a work and home account.

Please do not bother telling me about updating my account as the new Firefox does not work for my work flow at all and this should not be related to sync question at all as syncing has been there since that version was created. I hate the square tabs as I have to move my window around often and not having the big tabs pinned in 5 rows of 5 where they are 2" by 2" squares are absolutely necessary as I hate the new tab pinning option where the pins are super small and you get all the other stuff below that now that is not needed and lose rows of pins. I could go on but until they have options I will be staying on my current version which would not affect the sync outcomes.

Hi I was using an older version of firefox but had to change my OS from win7 to Win10. I used Password exporter to save all the passwords to a back up file. I installed the latest Firefox but had no way to import my saved passwords as Password exporter no longer works on later versions, which resulted in installing Firefox 56.0b2 (64bt). Installed password exporter and imported my passwords. On a number of ocasions, I had to open password exporter to see what the password was when I went to a imported bookmark, but once entered, the auto fill worked and opened the site. This worked fine for about a week when, for no apparent reason, the bookmark star dissapeared and the menu bar - bookmark this page had stopped working. I would like to run the latest Firefox but dont know how to import from the password exporter back up file as the latest version doesn't allow password exporter??? Hope someone can help? :)

Why did the "hotfix" disable most addons in FF 56.0.2 when I have all updates for 56.0.2 turned off.

I DO NOT want to "Upgrade" FF because the non-functional "Web Extensions" will not perform the same "Addons" functions, which I have used for years, Most "Web Extensions" are now useless.

I realize that later versions of FF "provides more security" - However, the "Web Extensions" are unusable as they now have very little, if any, to even do simple things like remembering the last directory used, that FF 56.0.2 addons perform flawlessly.

So, back to my original question, when will my addons be re-enabled for FF 56.0.2?

They should not have been effected by this "hotfix" when my browser is set to "Never check for updates (not recommended)".

I am currently having issues with Youtube, Netflix, and vrv.co, all video streaming sites over on Firefox, though only in full screen mode, and only on those particular video streaming sites, and I don't know why. As everything else works perfectly fine on my computer otherwise. Though curiously, running the browser in safe mode seems to remove those issues. However, I suspect this is some kind of glitch in the browser, as when I checked Waterfox Classic (The only version I could see offered when I went to check the site to get the browser) to see if those problems followed to it, I learned it did not. However for some reason, Waterfox does not have access to the same extensions I normally use in Firefox. Is there a reason behind this? I am planning to downgrade to the immediate preceeding version of Firefox I have to see if that fixes the issues there but I somehow doubt it. In the meantime, is there a way to get my Noscript, Adblock Plus, and Webroot Filtering extensions to work on Waterfox so that I can use it in the without worrying about ads or potentially malicious scripts until I can figure out what the devil happened to Firefox?

I've recently noticed lots of error-sync logs in the %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<My Profile>\weave\logs folder. My sync is set up to handle Bookmarks and History only.

I have 4 devices, 2 PCs - both Firefox 56.0.2 32-bit and 2 Android devices (latest Firefox, not sure of version). All 4 were previously set to sync together, Bookmarks/History.

One of the PCs (Windows 7 x64) - has the logs, but I've read numerous articles online on how to fix Sync myself or correct a corrupted places.sqlite database as that's what the error log seems to be suggesting is wrong.

Running check integrity against places.sqlite gives me this:

> Task: checkIntegrity - Unable to check database integrity > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

I have tried to repeat the process in safe mode and with a clear (new) profile - the issue persists. I have deleted places.sqlite (after making a backup) to see if sync suddenly starts working - but the bookmark related issue simply returns.

I have signed out on all devices, changed my sync password and logged in on just the PCs (for now until the problem is resolved). I have deleted all bookmarks on the 'problem' PC, then re-imported them from Internet Explorer on the other PC, then reactivated sync - this seems to initially work but once the 'problem' PC has the bookmarks, it tries to sync them and the errors return.

The error in question appears to be this:

1527797240532 Sync.Engine.Bookmarks WARN Error while backing up bookmarks, but continuing with sync: Error: Error(s) encountered during statement execution: database disk image is malformed (resource://gre/modules/Sqlite.jsm:823:25) JS Stack trace: handleCompletion@Sqlite.jsm:823:25 1527797240534 Sync.BrowserIDManager DEBUG _ensureValidToken already has one 1527797240543 Sync.Engine.Bookmarks DEBUG Successfully wrote previousFailed.

I can supply the entire file if required or put it on pastebin.

The only real issue I'm having is that I simply want my history/bookmarks (but nothing else) shared between all my devices that use Firefox, be it quantum or 56.0.2.

I have not tried Firefox Quantum (as numerous add-ons I use are unsupported and I didn't want to simply switch without a road back). I did try Firefox 52.0.8 ESR but the first thing it did was delete my places.sqlite so I wasn't able to reproduce the problem I'm having as I don't want to lose my history data (bookmarks are stored primarily in IE for convenience and simply imported when I need them as I use 'PlainOldFavorites' extension).

This looks like a bug with firefox sync or a corrupt file, but since I've cleared places.sqlite and let FF recreate it, I'm at a loss. If you need any further information to help solve this, I'm happy to provide as much as possible.

Thanks for any suggestions you can offer :)
