Hello. I use developer's version of ff for a few weeks (currently on 107.0b2). I recently decided to switch back to stable version 106. However, when I run it it says

``` Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox. ```

So, how do I move from developer's version back to stable without losing anything?

(OS: debian 11, if it matters)

A required site I need to use for work has a popup dialog box that never works right in Firefox, the popup dialog shows up as a blank box or doesn't popup at all in Firefox. I must print what is supposed to be there in that dialog box. It's been like this for a couple of years now. I've tried everything imaginable and searched high and low for the fix. I have had this particular site set as an exception to popups blocking, and then I also set it to have all popups unblocked. Still doesn't work either way. I have to use the site in Brave instead, and it's the only way I can get what I need done. I used to love Firefox SO much, I used it exclusively. But it has undergone some unpleasant changes recently, such as hiding my open tabs on my iphone. Because of these issues I find myself using other browsers more and more.

Hi Today I updated Firefox to version 106.0 and I can't get rid of the "arrow button" from top right (screenshot attached - near the minimize button, I marked it). The function of this button is clear for me - tabs management. But I can manage my tabs without special button for it. I want to remove it. I tried right clicking on it, but the "remove from toolbar" option is unavailable. I tried to customize toolbar, but it won't work either (I can't take it from te toolbar).

How to remove this button?

Firefox just updated itself to v106 (x64). Opening Microsoft outlook web mail (https://outlook.office.com/mail/) gives me the opening envelope between 5 & 10 times, then an error screen that says "multiple redirects detected". Hitting the 'refresh' link works fine, and no trouble after that, so maybe a sign in issue? Seems to be a new problem; didn't happen yesterday.

I first realized an issue with downloading PDFs through the Firefox viewer - I cannot. The download button does nothing, there is no prompt, no popup, and no file downloaded. I have also tried to print to pdf, that also seems to fail.

Today I realized I also cannot attach any files to an email through Gmail in Firefox, which is now leading me to believe that the software is unable to interface with my files at all.

Things I've tried include: - Turning off popup blocker - Refreshing Firefox in the ->Help->More Troubleshooting Information Menu - Starting Firefox in safe mode - Reinstalling through snap

The only way I can currently download files is through wget, and the only way I can send attachments is by installing Google Chrome, which is kind of a last resort for me.

I am running Ubuntu 22.04, this is on Firefox 106.0, though it didn't work last update either.

Thanks for any help


Edit: I have been googling for answers but after posting this question a similar thread popped up, the solution is to install the following packages:

xdg-desktop-portal xdg-desktop-portal-gtk

On my laptop, I run FDE as my daily driver, with the release version to handle my webmail. I also use portable firefox (from portableapps.com) as a browser to use while at work, from a thumb drive. While using that portable verison, I usually just go to google image search, and a work site that would definitely be secure.

My question: I don't like to update the installation on my thumb drive very often, and occasionally work computers are very slow anyways. So if I were to update it no more often than once a month, which version of firefox would be most secure: Release, Beta, or Nightly?

If doing this is just dumb, then which version gets updated less often--it would be Release, correct?

When Firefox asks if I want to download an update and I agree, soon after that but not right away it stops working - on every new page it says "We need to restart to finish updating" <- This last bit is VERY annoying. Is there a way to keep FF working in such situation? I usually have 3 FF profiles running, about 10-20 tabs each and when it suddenly does this - I can restart them all but when it is suitable for me.

The only solution I can see so far is disabling updates via group policies (which is not well documented, where do i put this policies.json on Fedora? need to google that).

Any other ways to keep updates and FF running until I decide when to restart? Thanks.
