A piece of software I need to use for work requires an older version of Firefox (Firefox 68.4.2 ESR) to run, so in the past, I've had to delete Firefox and re-download the older version which has worked fine. However, I recently got a new Mac and now when I try the same thing it's not working. Whenever I first open Firefox after downloading it, it opens as the correct (older) version, however it does not seem to be able to connect to the internet and I get the spinning wheel that never ends, and then whenever I close out of Firefox and reopen it, it automatically updates to the newest version. I have multiple times gone into the settings on Firefox and changed my preferences to check with me before installing updates and I've gone into the settings of the App Store to make sure it's not automatically updating any apps or programs. My computer is currently running OS version 11.1 (Big Sur) and I'm wondering if maybe this version is too new to be compatible with Firefox 68 ESR? Any help, ideas, or advice is greatly appreciated!

This is an i7 4500U, Intel HD 4400 (Intel Graphics Family). Drops approximately 5% of the frames resulting in video stutter. Running on a (tested) 200mbps connection. Like I said in the title, Edge plays fine. I remember a few versions ago (can't pinpoint now), Firefox used to play theses videos without any issues. Examples: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79ImZE0K7xc And https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IeZeINA1ts0

I spent the last morning trying every solution I found on the Internet, Reddit and Mozilla forums. Disabling stuff in the about:config, webgl stuff, doublebuffer, etc, etc. Tried downgrading to V77, disabling enabling 3D acc., etc.

Thanks.

I have been invited to renew the Norton protection on my desktop computer in 5 days. The increase in the cost is approximately 20% on last year's subscription with the advice that it will treble at the following renewal. This has made me wonder whether, or to what degree, the protection provided by Norton Lifelock may be unnecessary due to my using Firefox for my browsing.

I have Ublock, Enhancer For Youtube, Facebook Container & Ghoshtery icons on my toolbar.

I am not very computer literate, so if anyone is able to suggest an alternative way of protecting my computer, please take this into consideration.

I accept that due to my limited knowledge of computers some people may on balance think that it is best that I renew with Norton rather than risk compromising my computer security due to my lack of computer expertise - and if that is what people think it would still be good to receive the reassurance that I am probably already using the best product for me.

Last year I let the subsription lapse rather than pay at the invited amount that I think was over £60. A few days later I received another email inviting me to subscribe at circa £20.

Thank you.

I run Firefox in portable mode in Windows 10. It works wonderfully. However, when i click on web links outside of FF, it loads Chrome. So in FF I go to options and set it as a default. In "default apps" it shows up there. But Because I am running FF portable, by setting it as default browser, it creates a new profile on c:\users\username . And loads a whole new instance of FF. That is not what I would like to happen.

Is there a way to set it up so that when I click a link in an email, it will load the FF from the portable instance? using the profile within the portable directory. Usually I always have FF open. It is never closed.

Hi, My other Windows tablet had problems and I had to reinstall Windows and therefore Firefox. I lost all of my add ons and speed dial tabs etc and want to sync with other devices, but on that tablet when I click 'Sign in or Register' I'm taken to a 'Create account' page. When I put in my email address, I'd expect it to say there's already an account with that email address, but it doesn't. Then, when I put in my current password, the first bar takes the password without problem, but when I fill in the 'Repeat password' bar, the first two characters are entered but the rest of the password jumps to the first bar!

This already the second installation of Firefox as the first version didn't work and the Firefox page in Explorer said something had gone wrong and gave another download link...

Do you have any ideas? This is taking a crazy amount of time, just going around in circles...

Thank you.
