I updated Firefox last night right before bed, to version 65.0.1. I did not go to any websites after that. This morning, none of my browser history from before today, 2/14, exists any longer. I first noticed this when typing in a website I check daily, but I didn't have any autocomplete suggestions (normally I just type the first 2 letters and get a suggestion of the full site and I am able to just hit enter to go there). Just now, I checked my history folder to find a site I have not visited in the last few months, but with no history before yesterday, I am not sure how to proceed. I believe my bookmarks are intact (I do not typically use bookmarks, but there are a handful present, and I did not create them today, so I believe they are from before last night's update).

I do use an add-on to record my open tabs, and it someone does go back longer than this, so maybe I can find some of the sites I used to have. However, I could really use the history feature, I have some stuff last summer I would like consult ASAP. I can verify that I have not manually erased my history, at least not going back before something I viewed within a given hour (I don't go back and erase things from say, yesterday, last week, last month, last year, etc). Any thoughts?

History doesn't appear after downgrading Firefox

For a really long time I've been using an older version of Firefox (47.0b9, to be precise) because I didn't like the following updates. A week ago I noticed some problems with one website I was using and so thought that maybe it's because I was using outdated browser or something like that. To check this out I updated Firefox to newest (in that moment) version of it, but it wasn't the case, and because I didn't like the changes made to interface and other things I immediately downgraded it back to the version I was using earlier. But then I realized that all my browser history was gone.

I spent last week trying to undo or repair it, and so I found out that my browser history was still there, untouched, but for some reason older Firefox could not "see" it. After updating again to the newest version browser history was back and it showed again.

I tried many things, like System Restore or Firefox Sync, to somehow get the history back in the older version, but it just didn't work.

The thing is, while the history doesn't appear in version 47.0b9, the last session - tabs that I had opened - still showed, and when clicking on "History" button, before going into History window, there was a list of recently visited websites, and the last sites I visited before that whole situation were truly there, so I presume it has to have access to files that contain my browser history.

I am aware that there are supposedly some safety risks that come with using older version of Firefox, but I didn't experience any problems during my long usage of it so I don't see an issue.

I really need my browser history to work again in older version of Firefox, and not only because I don't like how newest version looks, but because of how search bar was changed (that is most crucial to me when it comes to this topic) and the fact that after upgrading the browser it started to work slower than before for some reason, which is quite jarring. Some other applications also started working slower, but it isn't as important as the browser.

I also tried slightly newer version of Firefox, but it seems that anything below 55 doesn't work. I think I've read somewhere that in version 55 any downgrade below started to not be supported anymore.

I'm sure there were some changes made to files that contain browser history and things related to it over the course of time. I think that "places.sqlite" file was actually five times bigger after updating to newest version, but I don't know why is that, I'm not really knowledgeable in that field.

But I wonder if there is anything I can do to make it work again in older version, specifically 47.0b9.

Thank you in advance for any help.

I have had problems with streaming Channel 4 TV UK for many years. I could only get it to work on Windows. Recently I have Dumped Window 10 - so slow - updates take all day. I now am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (using Linux since 2009)

Channel 4 say they Do Not support Linux ?

I have tried to install Adobe Flash Player, but does not seam to work or download. On Ch 4 web page I pressed Allow, but say that I should install Flash Player !

Please could anyone advice me what I can do, or what I have done wrong.

"Password Editor" in add-ons is not compatible with my version of Firefox - Without going crazy - there should be a way - under this setting - "privacy and security" - to Manually add a web-site with login/password. And if not - why not?

I changed a couple names of my bookmarked pages so that it would shorten the pop-up menus and sub-pop-up menus that appear whenever I hover over different folders of "Bookmarks" I've saved. I'm seeing those changes reflected on the device on which I made them but not on my other computer where I'm also signed in to the same Mozilla account.

Any idea why those changes aren't syncing and being reflected across all my devices? Or... how long do such changes typically take to sync?

Thanks! -Nate

Within that same web site the links to its associated PDFs and to other websites work in all browsers, still including Firefox in its latest version, so why the links to other pages within the same site no longer work in the latest version of Firefox when they always did in every other version is a mystery to me. Being non-technical, the obvious work-around of going back to a previous version is something equally mysterious and therefore inaccessible to me. I have never had to think of doing it before, having been a Firefox (default browser) user for eight years, opting always to have auto upgrades to the latest version because of a trouble-free experience of Firefox - until now.

Filling in an online ballot yesterday on a different website, while using Firefox, threw up a very similar problem. When I clicked on 'read candidates' statements', which had a PDF icon next to it, I wasn't taken to a PDF: nothing happened. So I suspect it was a link to a different page of that website, which comprised just a PDF. All very frustrating. I have reported this to the electoral body which provides the secure online ballot for the organisation staging the election, outlining what I describe above, and asking them too to report this to Mozilla.

My work-around, until Firefox fix this issue, which I have reported to them, is simply to use Internet Explorer or Chrome when necessary, resisting the temptation to make one of them my default browser and thus make even more megabucks for their rapacious owners.

Any help would be appreciated, but please don't assume when you kindly respond that I have technical knowledge! Plain English instructions, please. Thank you.
