I installed addons (e.g. adblock lite, ad killer) and when I shutdown Windows and start it again, the addons disappeared in Firefox. I'm using Firefox 40.0.3 non of addons will stay. I restored Firefox to its original state, installed everything again, also did the Malware scan as suggested on a post and the problem stays. So every time I start Firefox, have to install the add ons which is a bit hectic.


Please help me with some solution.

Every few days I suddenly start seeing all the ads that should be blocked, so I check the add on manager and find they've been disabled!! Sometimes it even completely un-installs them! I asked about this before and was told to remove the entries in the configuration. This didn't work.... all it did was cause me to have to re-configure FF from the start. I continue to have the problem.

This has been going on for some time, but suddently 2 days ago a window for every extension showed up and asked for updating, which was done, and now extensions were shown inOptions/extensoins. But today they are all gone again. I have scanned for malware and there are none.

Whats wrong?

All of my add-ons are disabled each bootup or wake it from sleep and start of Firefox session. Once I decide an add-on is desired, I want it to default to be enabled rather than disabled on statup. I've done my best to set preferences to allow my add-ons by default, but either I'm ignorant of how to do it, or it is not obvious

Example add-ons: 1Password; Adobe Acrobat Create PDF; Disconnect; NoScript: Open With Photoshop; Privacy Badger; Self-Destructing Cookies

I've been a very satisfied Firefox user for years but since about ver. 41 (i'm on v. 41.0.2 now) Firefox has become too inconvenient

Where can I download Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR 52) for Windows in order to continue using the Session Manager extension? It's extremely important and vital that I am able to restore my historical sessions and also save multiple sessions going forward.

When I try to download it, I can see it will be 60 version instead.

Unfortunately I mistakenly updated my ESR 52 version today without realizing I'd lose that extension. This is very frustrating, so to alleviate the issue, I'd just like to have the older version and stick with it. Thank you.

Session restore after crash used to work, but during my recent crashes, I get about:blank instead of about:sessionrestore.

Additionally, a problem Mozilla Firefox is having for more than a decade: Session recovery failure.

They have made it worse by adding a layer of bulk (euphemism: “lz4”), which does more bad than good. (if it ain't broken, don't “fix” it).


My question is: What exactly causes Firefox to fail recovering the session?

I know about Session Manager (only for Firefox pre-Q**nt*m) and TabSessionManager (for Q*a**um), but the latter one unfortunately is close to useless.

Reviews state: “WHY CAN'T THE OLD SESSION MANAGER BE UPDATED TO WORK ON THE NEW FIREFOX??” (user 79323d, 6 days ago via https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/tab-session-manager/reviews/) Another review: “Literally nobody asked for IndexedDB. The legacy way (storage.local API) worked perfectly fine. No need for GarbageDB!” (by user e3fa12, 19 days ago)


I am using Windows 8.1 at the moment. I have not experienced the session recovery failure on Linux so far, and it used to work fine for Windows 8.1, even with 500+ tabs. But somehow, recently, it stopped working.

Greetings,

I've tried all avenues that normally resolves the issue of unsaved passwords, including cleaning out caches, running in safe mode etc. In fact, I tried two different MacOSX machines, one running running 10.13.8, the other 10.14.1. Nothing works, Firefox does not offer to save credentials. I thought there might be some new HTML trick to disable login saving I'm not aware of but Safari had no problem saving the password. Any suggestions are appreciated.

If there is an update available, you have the option to choose to update it now or later." I don't see that option. I can install all updates now or not. How can I install selectively? And (since Firefox does not seem to reveal the versions of the add-ons I'm using), how can I be sure whether a particular add-on I'm using is already up-to-date?

since Firefox 41.0.2, all my addons are gone. I've patiently strictly followed all the offered advices (refresh, trouble shooting, new profile, completely un- +new install) and reinstall my 30 addons >40 times without any success, the addons came back 2-4 time after restarting, gave me FALSE hope and disappeared again.

A side catastrophe is, "firefox.ex -p or -ProfileManager" only opened a new firefox start page, but no more leads me to the Profile Manager, like at the 1st time. Is there any other way to open the file manager?

I guess many successful pp do get the same problems again & again after a while like me?? Is it a bug problem of Firefox 41.0.2 without any fix? Should we keep losing time making effort or better wait for a newer version? I need my old addons back for my job asap, I'm very thankful for any help

My firefox add-ons keep getting removed/deleted.

Earlier today, I loaded up a fresh session and firefox loaded with about 7 tabs asking for permission to install certain add-ons. Some of these permissions were from my AV software (Avast) I noticed that two of them were add-ons I'd previously installed.

I closed all the tabs then checked my add-on page to find they've all gone.

I've seen the same reply to this problem posted a couple of times, but I'm asking afresh as the asker's problem didn't seem to be fully resolved in any of the instances.

As it says in the title, I can't seem to download anything in Firefox anymore, aside from photos apparently. Zips files, videos, and program files always fail without even attempting to download. The download arrow pops up and that's about it. Add-ons just say that there was an error downloading and nothing else, except try again. Refresh Firefox doesn't work and neither does safe mode. Clean installs work, but only during the initial opening of the browser. If you close it and open it back up, it goes back to failing again.
