Yesterday, my Firefox History browser stopped saving almost all pages. The only pages it does save are ones like this: Firefox pages. I have no idea why it's doing this; I haven't been doing anything differently. I'm using an old Macbook - Mac OS X 10.6.8 - if that's relevant. I'm like a 95-year-old from the early 90s when it comes to technology, so please dumb it way down. Thanks.

About a week ago I could no longer open firefox (my standard browser)

I could not find what causes the problem. Firefox would appear in 'task manager' but not on the screen to start using it.

I came across an old version of firefox in my downloads and installed this.

I now have found out that the latest working version for me is 48.0.2. I also tried the nightly version 52 but it didn't work neither. Currently I am running 48.0.2 after the auto-update I will no longer be able to use firefox and will have to reinstall 48.0.2

I am using a desktop version of Windows 10 Pro / 64-bit / Dutch version On: i5-4670 cpu @ 3.4Ghz / 8Gb RAM

When a bookmark is added to the Bookmarks Toolbar, Mozilla puts it at the bottom of the Toolbar list. The user wants a new bookmark added to the top almost always, NEVER to the bottom. Not only is the default wrong, but users are not given a preference setting for this that I can find on the Firefox site. Did I overlook it, or is this something we can hope to see in a future update?

My unsorted bookmarks used to appear in the library window in a folder called Unsorted Bookmarks but now there is no folder by that name. They only appear in the toolbar, not the library. There is nothing in the "Other Bookmarks" folder. I'd like to be able to organize them in mass in the library window. Working in 48.02 and old Mac OS10.6.8. Not really sure whether this happened in an upgrade. Thanks!

Yesterday I played my online MSN games. A tiny video screen popped up; went to Options to block pop-ups; somehow I clicked a button that was like DRT or something and it said it would disable videos - didn't snap that it meant my games -:) I have tried re-tracing my steps and can find that anywhere. I desperately need to get the videos to work on Firefox so I can enjoy my games. The game screen comes up, click on Jigsaw and it comes up but you can not see the jigsaw puzzles.

Any suggestions - other than to tell me to stay out of the Options!!  :) :)

Re: Recently saw memory-key address in new line at bottom of FireFox's History Drop-down-menu. (June 2019.) Re: After memory-key displays in FireFox-History menu, from "must add Extension," I can No Longer Connect to one of my financial websites; could connect in early June to same website prior to this extension install, (and as late as July 3 '19 to other financial websites) Re: Firefox Browser (FrFx), ver 48.0.2, latest ver. that could be installed on OSX 10.6.8, Mac Mini early '09 Re: Currently, haven't time to purchase, learn to use newer ver. OSX and Internet (INet) Security on/for it.

1. "Must add extension to Firefox (FrFx) Browser" Pop-Up occurred immediately after update to my Internet (INet) Security program, and gives 'Certificate Authentication; I.D. Errors' -> No Connection > Clear Browser History, Restart, ShutDown, and Start. But, disabling my INet Security, gives same "No Connection" results at that financial website's server. (Therefore, Add-in Not from INet Security program Update.)

2. Checking for unfamiliar- Extensions, -Plug-Ins, -Add-Ons, in all my browsers shows none related to Firefox Browser. So where was the Pop-Up FrFx 'extension installed? Previous Extensions I'd installed all still present.

3a. Using secure https://www.[financial website].com in URL line, yields 'Security Warning Code' notice re: website/server certificate NOT authenticated + can't connect to server.

 b. Using non-secure http://www.[financial website].com as URL, gives same can't authenticate + not connect warnings, since both Google and that financial website automatically switch to secure https:// type of connection!

4a. Even using Chrome browser -> Google always converts to https:// in URL line > "Broken HTTPS," plus 'website id not verified,' but at Green-around-padlock: Your connection to www.[financial website].com is encrypted using an obsolete cipher suite. The connection uses TLS 1.2. The connection is encrypted using AES_256_CBC, with ……..1 for message authentication and RAS as the key exchange mechanism." "Your INet connection is blocked," but I have already added 'Chrome://' to my INet Security program's Firewall, and to its 'allowed cookies' list, twice.

 b. ***Did that questionable-"must add Firefox Extension" change the encryption method used by Firefox browser to AES……, since that older version of FrFx had just been connecting to that financial website's server just fine.***   

5a.Tech. Support department at [financial website] 1st: told me they had made NO Changes to encryption on their server, and 2nd: they have AntiVirus + Internet Security on their server that most likely rejects my older computer (even with up-to-date INet Security definitions).

 b. A Mac shop cleaned malware from my Mac, but found NONE.  They suggested that some websites are now requiring one of 'only the 3 most recent versions of an O.S.,' which is supported by updates from its manufacturer, in order to connect to their server.

6a. I can't find any items in my Mac's hard drive relating to a FrFx/Mozilla Extension, as that folder won't open, even with administrative rights. (But Can't Log-In as Admin.-User with missing Password.) Can any ....plist s be removed safely and v. 48.0.2 function well?

 b. ****How can one find + remove the added extension,, or whatever, at that memory-key stated in the FrFx-History-Menu?*****
 c. Is there a newer ver. of Firefox browser which can now be installed safely on OSX 10.6.8?

Input and suggestions will be appreciated to solve this problem.

On the morning of October 1st, 2016 I was trying to move April's webhistory into September's Webhistory by tricking my computer into thinking it was still September 30th, so that I wouldn't have to randomly search through the massive category of "older than 6 months" eventually Firefox refused to continue loading pages or even access older pages on my tabhistory. I restarted my computer & allowed an update to Firefox to activate, however when I reactivated Firefox it took a lot longer to load than normal, only for it to show a crash message after about 1 minute each time I tried to start it, safe mode & restarting my PC made no difference.

    Eventually I had the insane idea to copy all of my firefox information onto a flashdrive then completely refresh it on my main computer, however even then there was no difference. In frustration I decided to start using the vastly inferior browser known as internet explorer, I looked into Mozilla support using it. I got this computer in late July 2013, & was extremely careful with it, there were no virus threats or anything on this computer & I'm still using Windows 8.
    This is my most recent crash Crash ID: bp-c995142e-114e-4ae4-a013-4dd1a2161003
    This is probably the oldest Firefox restart crash in the chain Crash ID: bp-f9bd6bcf-f99b-4276-9ac3-e790f2161001

Hopefully this information helps some.

So basically I've been using Firefox for quite some time now, I have a load of bookmarks and I frequently have upwards of 50> tabs usually <100. I use an old OS - Vista.

I have found Firefox to be stable until recently, as it is really unstable. I am almost crashing a lot of the time. What I mean by almost crashing, is that the browser stop registering my clicks and the page(s) I am viewing go cloudy and the browser goes in a 'not responding mode'. However, it rarely actually closes Firefox and crashes properly to desktop. But I usually have to wait a good 10-30 seconds for it to respond and return to normal. Sadly, this happens often and it is quite common for a 'not responding' problem to be followed by another immediately after.

I have sometimes lost old 'restore sessions', so I may have edited a few things in my directory - but I don't see why that would affect the stability of the browser in this way.

Again, the problem is not that Firefox crashes full on to desktop; it's that it goes into a 'Not Responding Mode' more than frequently.


Any help would be appreciated.


Many thanks,

Rich
