I have a heavily customised FF v42 setup I am happy with but my Firefox version is seriously out of date and it's time to upgrade. I suspect a lot of things will no longer work on the latest version (particularly some of my old addons).

To ease the transition I want to be able to run my old version (temporarily for say a few weeks) and the latest one simultaneously so I can customise the new one the same standard and find solutions for anything that is no longer supported and still use my old install/addons until that transition is completed.

I found this thread:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1061740

but the solution pointed to has links that no longer work. I couldn't find anything recent on the web or youtube that covers the Mac.

I understand the principles will be to:

1. Install current version in a different location. Is that just dragging the FF .app file to somewhere other than the Applications folder or is it asked as part of the install?

2. Use a different profile for each install. Not sure the sequence of doing this so that I don't lose my current (old) profile. I'm guessing it's create a new profile, switch to the new profile and then install current version which will "take over" the new profile. Then I can switch back to the old one when I run my my old FF?

Any help greatly appreciated.

For the last couple of days now every time I open a youtube page it will ask me to choose my language in a big blue bar across top of page. This will happen when moving to a video to watch, or returning to the main youtube page. Nothing changes. I have tried deleting cookies, clearing cache which doesn't help. The playback options also do not save. Annotations and captions can be turned off once but move to another video or main page and they have not been saved and those options go back to default. Also the autorun button on the bottom right of the video screen will not stay turned off, go to a new video or back to main page and that resets as well.

I am not sure if this is a youtube problem or a firefox problem. A community page for this problem has been opened on youtube as well, here"

Any options or suggestions to help fix this problem would be appreciated

Hello,

I have been using Firefox for several years and until about a week or so ago it always kept me logged when I wanted it to. However, all of a sudden it won't do that for my yahoo account. I have the "keep me signed in" check box checked and I have white listed all the yahoo addresses involved with this.

Firefox 42 won't keep me logged in there any more. I have changed nothing (literally nothing). It just happened all of a sudden.

I have Win 10

Can someone help?

Regards kk

Using an older AMD system with windows XP Pro. Set it to be a POSready system via the registry, so security and updates should be current. Firefox version is 42.0. Few weeks ago, amazon.com web site changed from full-featured display with images & graphics to a text only display. I believe this to be mobile mode. No other web site gives this problem. Using the amazon fullsite URL (http://www.amazon.com/?force-full-site=1) brings-up the splash screen correctly, but using any link to leave the splash page returns the display to text only mode. This seems only to occur on the amazon.com domain. Text only mode seems to appear whenever the URL contains "amazon.com", whether or not I am logged in. Leads me to believe that this is a FF issue, as opposed to an Amazon issue. Other systems with FF 42.0 work fine. Only this one machine malfunctions. (The one where I spend 6-7 hours a day sitting.)

When I try to display details of an item in Amazon eg a book, I get an error saying Problem loading page. The page isn't redirecting properly Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

An example of the URL causing this problem is https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0692394028?redirect=true&redirect=true&redirect=true&redirect=true&redirect=true&redirect=true&redirect=true&redirect=true&redirect=true&ref_=gb1h_img_m-3_4447_e77918ec&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE


I've tried a refresh of Firefox, I've tried removing it and re-installing it. I've tried deleting cache and cookies but I still keep getting the same problem. I'm using v42.0.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I am accessing a remote Windows 10 desktop PC using Real VNC, TeamViewer, NoMachine and others.

The point is Firefox and Chrome appear as a white / blank windows when opened, a thing that it doesn't happen to the native Internet browser = Microsoft Internet Explorer and MIcrosoft Edge, that both behave normal. That obliges me to use Microsoft's browsers instead of my loved Firefox.

Could anybody tell me why FF and Chrome are not broadcasted and instead I receive a blank, white window that I can do nothing more than to close it?

Thanks. PS: My client machine is a Windows 8.1 and the remote one with the browsers is a Windows 10's.

For the last couple of months (late 2015) Firefox has returned a "secure connection failed" error when I try to access my account at a major health insurance provider. The site worked fine in Firefox for years and works fine with Microsoft Edge, but I prefer to use Firefox. The "more info" link in the error message says the message indicates the site uses outdated TLS security and that I should contact the owners to tell them to update it. I tried that and failed; Blue Cross makes it even harder to "contact us" than Mozilla does.

Why is there no "I trust this site - go there anyway" option? I'm experienced enough to make my own security decisions.
