I'd like to update my mac's firefox, but not to the latest version. I know about the directory of releases, but I can't seem to find advice on what to do once I download the file. I don't want to create a separate profile, or risk messing up the profile/settings I have currently. So, any thoughts? Thank you in advance for the help.

This 'feature' annoys me so much. One, because its has no benefit and two, after FF75 it's not possible to disable it.

I like to discuss why someone thinks one click select all is useful. It's more common to edit your url/search input instead of type a complete new one. Selecting a part of your input or just input the cursor at a specific location gets really disturb by this 'feature'. In 30 years i use computers, this behavior have never been useful and when needed to select all, the click-swipe-release action is even as easy. Beside this, the decades old CTRL-A function is even as fast and useful.

More and more of this behavior is pushed at users on the web and i really don't see why. Can someone tell me why this behavior is invented? And how to disable it in newer FF versions?

Hi Everyone,

I run Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 and Firefox version 72.0.2, with DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials and search engine, and New Tab version 1 by Leigh Brenecki.

All works well, other than, having opened Firefox with the first "Tab" available, when I click the "+" sign for a New Tab, the error message "Blocked by Content Security Policy" and "An error occurred during a connection to duckduckgo.com" is displayed.

However, if I click on the Firefox Home Page "House" icon, or select any of my Bookmarks Toolbar icons, the message goes away and all works well again -- at least until I try opening another New Tab when the cycle starts again.

I realise this might be a "New Tab" or "DuckDuckGo" problem, and will seek their support accordingly - I just wondered if anyone on here had experienced the same?

Thank you,

Ian

Hi Everyone, For personal reasons I run FF version 72.0.2. I have a subscription to Britbox (UK) which has run without difficulty for two years now --- until recently, when it stopped for no apparent reason and displayed the error message shown in the attached image. Britbox Tech Support is, to say the least - useless, and I have been unable to extract anything useful from them for the past few weeks. Today, however, I got a (speculative) message saying that if I upgraded my FF version to the latest - things would be fine again. Strange, as they have been insisting I change to Chrome until today. Can anyone support their advice? i.e. Is there anything in version upgrades from 72.0.2 which might have affected viewing? Thank you. Ian

Firefox won't play any video, on any website at all. I get different error messages on different sites, such as: The video playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the video used features your browser did not support OR Sorry, we're having trouble with playing this video. I've tried following some of the advice in the forums here, so I cleared the cache and the cookies, I ensured DRM content is enabled, and I unchecked the 'Use hardware acceleration when possible' option under preferences. None of this has made any difference. I also restarted firefox and installed an adobe flash player add on. Still no success. Any advice?

OK, I was using a very old version of firefox previously and restore previous session worked perfectly. If my computer crashed, when I rebooted it, the "trouble finding pages" message came up, click to restore session, and everything came back.

Then.... I upgraded to version 72.0.2 (64 bit)

Session restore no longer works, or at least not the way it should be working.

If I had say 20 windows open when the computer crashed, when I finish a reboot and start Firefox, I get the "trouble finding pages" message, and I click to restore session as before.

Anywhere from 2 to maybe 5 windows will restore. The rest are gone.

I suspect it has to do with the fact that there were now multiple "instances" of firefox running in the task manager, and what's happening is that it's restoring the windows in ONE of those previous instances, but not all of them.

It gives me the impression that the session restore function isn't tracking all the windows open in all those separate instances, but rather it's only tracking one instance.


Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hi Everyone, When I try to access a particular website, there is no real graphical display - simply text scattered everywhere.

I visit loads of different sites each day, and this is the only one where this problem occurs.

The website Owner thinks it might be something to do with a CSS file(?) but, as I do not have the problem elsewhere, I am unsure.

If anyone can help on this, I'd be very grateful.

Thank you.

what is it so hard to disable updates and stop your releases and keep my profile and addons. I had enough of your browser as with every update more things go wrong, missing or disabled. I just want to use the internet with the old addons I donw want any of your new features crap. With 8GB or ram your last browser fails to stop freezing my computer with your ram usage and process limit. I use basically the same addons and scripts as with FIrefox 52 and everything fails to work now. I hope someone can make a usable browser that does the simple things that I want and not have to deal with this again.

I got the notification recommend me to refresh my firefox at the bottom, which only states that it will make my firefox run faster. But it didn't mention it will delete all my add-ons, reset my layouts, mess up my about:config settings. Which lead to unwanted automatic update download and installation. This is completely BS.

As soon as I start the Firefox Browser, it is connecting to multiple IP addresses. Any idea why it is doing so? Is there a way to stop it? Is it a privacy and security issue?

I have already changed most of the setting as mentioned in the following article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections

Some of the IP connections have stopped after making those changes. But there are still few connections. They are: - 35.244.181.201 (This is Google LLC) - 13.227.142.108 (This is Amazon) - 117.18.237.29 (This appears to be Verizon Media) - 54.70.109.38 (This is Amazon) - 52.38.31.225 (This is Amazon)

It will be great if someone could shed some light on this issue. Thanks in advance.

That should display a menu with an option to export. In my case, when I click on the three dots I get only these options: Preferences, Help, Lockwise for Android, Lockwise for iPhone/iPad. There is no option to export anywhere on the page. How can I backup and logins so that I can load them on my new computer? As above, Firefox version is 72.0.2 and I am using Linux Mint 19.3.
