How to stop a pending update on the (personal use) ESR channel? The "About Firefox" box has the "Restart to Update Firefox" button highlighted. I think the "An update to Firefox is available" message box automatically appeared and was accidentally selected. What about:config or other file can be edited to stop this pending update? I intend to update when I have converted all the data I have to be compatible. Still so much to convert! I must disable the update from downloading and being applied. What to edit? tia

After this problem started, I changed advanced update prefs to not check and not update in background. I should have learned to do this earlier - I would not be in this mess. I realize this won't help for this event, only future ones. I wonder if disabling internet and restarting Firefox will stop my problem, but I am doubtful. I would like to avoid copying and swapping Firefox files and folders, and hope there is a simple switch that can be reset to stop the update. Thank you.

So, this began a few years ago. Apparently connected to the codec issues surrounding XP and YouTube's choice to change how their videos play back, namely to the exclusion of flash. I can get the flash player going but that lacks the nice video quality of 1080x720. So not much point there.

It happens at any quality setting. Videos stop at 25:21, or in other cases 23:18. The sound keeps playing, the video freezes. Moving the timeline will allow the video to play for another 25/23 minutes. This of course does not happen in Chrome, but the reason I don't watch videos in chrome is a different color saturation issue; the videos are washed out there and I suppose that is a separate thread on another forum.

Here's some evidence that this is widespread.

I'm guessing I will get more attention complaining about Chrome's color saturation, but my preference is to resolve this issue in Firefox.

On one forum that I use all the time, when I have the list of "Unread topics" up all of a sudden now when I hit the back button it goes back to the top of the list instead of where I was. This is only happening on one site. It was suggested I try a different browser which I did and had no issue with the different browser. This just suddenly started happening a couple days ago. I've cleared all history except cookies as was suggested by a friend. Doesn't happen with my other PC's running FireFox either.

Today my system updated my firefox from 52 to 60. I'm a heavy addon user and 3/4 of them were disabled as incompatible with the new version. A well configured browser of mine got entirely thrashed....happens. I quickly reverted the installation. Started firefox....it's thrashed still. Went to addons - they are disabled. But they don't have 'enable' buttons even though they are compatible with the firefox version that I run now.

Yes, I know, I should find replacements for them. Seriously, I expect it to take at least another year before replacements for the most critical parts are available but hey, it's good time to check. However I can't do it now because my browser is thrashed!

How do I get my extensions back?

Furthermore, I suggest that firefox asks the users for consent before destroying their profiles.

There are many websites that I can't get to & give me error messages, even if I use Safe Mode. For some reason, even when I tried to login to Mozilla support, I got messages that "the username is inactive", "you answered the question wrong (it asked how many letters in Mozilla & I said 7)". I can't get to any Microsoft KB articles & can't login to Lastpass.

I thought it might be one of the useragent values, so I posted that here. I can't use the latest Firefox because it doesn't allow toolbars & I use Roboform toolbar.

So my questions are: 1) Is it the useragent values that I posted below that need to be changed & if so, how? 2) Is there anything else that could cause this? 3. If not, & I uninstall Firefox completely, then:

     A.  How can I save my bookmarks & add-ins?
     B.  Can you show me the link to re download Firefox 52.8?

I'd appreciate any advice. Thank you in advance!!

On June 11, 2018 I used the Troubleshoot menu and selected "REFRESH" to clear my browser which had been hijacked by a rogue search engine so that only that one would appear when using the Search bar (to the right of the URL box). I am running Vista and Firefox 52.8.1 32 bit. The refresh removed the rogue search engine problem and I was able to get my browser looking like it did before except the TAB bar has no tabs shown in it. When I try to exit Firefox it gives me the typical warning box that I am about to close X amount of tabs but there are no tabs visible. What is going on? Here are things I have tried so far: - Uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled from the website. - Went to the about:config page and tried changing the item about displaying tabs in the title bar. That just cleared out the title bar but still no tabs are shown. Changed it back to False and my title bar returned. - Scanned computer and browser for malware, none found by AVG. - Googled this problem and posted it on a different forum, no good answers found.

Below is a screen shot showing the Tab bar with no tabs in it and also showing the right-click menu that appears when right-clicking the bar. All answers will be appreciated.

The "Mobile Bookmarks" part of my bookmarks, doesn't show in the drop down menu's. Only in "Sidebar" and "Library". This makes it a TRUE HASSLE to try to access "Mobile Bookmarks" in my day to day browsing. The menubar's "Bookmarks" menu item, and the "Bookmark" dropdown menu on the customize toolbar has the same problem.

This is best described by my SCREENSHOT IMAGE (see attachment).

PS:* Its a newly installed browser, (Firefox 52.8.1 ESR) with a brand new and empty user-profile, and this is connected to a phone (via Firefox Sync) that also had a fresh install of the Android Firefox App (ver 60.something). Also the SYNC firefox account was deleted, and then recreated, to EMPTY it of all previous activity. So, everything is freshly installed (on my Android phone, and on my Windows XP Pro machine. (The machine is updated with drivers, and windows updates as of Jun2018)

So why this very strange bug? The menu showing at 50% of where it should show up...?

Anyone with any idea's ??

PS: I did delete the "standard links" that FF puts into the "mobile bookmarks" favorite-folder, on my PC, and as I deleted the last ff-link in that folder, the folder itself was removed (deleted) from the Bookmarks menu, so I went over to my phone, and added a few pages to bookmarks there, waited for sync, and then the "Mobile Bookmarks" showed up again on the PC. But after this, the 50% display (no dropdown bookmarks menu's) problem started..

How can I possible fix this (without reinstalling/deleting sync/recreate sync/and so on* (*the process mentioned above). And also without losing all the newly added bookmarks (takes a lot of time to manually add 50+ bookmarks to FF).

Anyone?

The Image uploader seemed to LAG / STOP so an additional link for the screenshot is this: alexdata.com/FORUMPOSTS/FIREFOX/FirefoxMenuBug.jpg

I'm using Firefox 52.8.0 esr and I need to keep it until some of my add-ons get updated for the latest Firefox.

I have over a thousand tabs and that's fine normally because I have Firefox set to load those tabs when I open it but it only actively opens one of those tab's web pages - the one I was on when I closed Firefox last time. So to see any other tab contents I then have to press that tab and it loads the web page for it. For all the other tabs I can see what the web page is from the tab but they aren't loaded.

Now, for reasons that are too long to go into, I am reinstalling Firefox and the only way I can transfer all those tabs is to bookmark them all and import these bookmarks to the new install. I can then open all bookmarks in tabs. The problem is that it literally tries to open and load the web pages of all thousand-plus tabs. Not surprisingly Firefox ultimately crashes due to lack of memory.

So, is there any way to open all those thousand bookmarks as tabs and, in the way that Firefox normally does it on opening, load all tabs but only actively open one tab's web page?

Thanks for any help.
