I recently had my hard drive fail, necessitating a new hard drive being put into my computer. When I went to reinstall Firefox version 52, I noticed that Classic Theme Restorer is not coming up in the extension and add on searches. Was this removed for some reason? And if so, is it possible to restore it?

There are still thousands of innocent Firefox 52.9.0 (32-bit) ESR users who are still left hanging in the wind. Some of us simply cannot afford to run out and buy a new computer because you guys rolled out an errant hotfix.

Please folks, be fair and do the right thing. If I were able to replace this old Vista machine, I would. But the simple fact is, those of us living on a fixed income shouldn't have to suffer financially for the keystrokes of errant progress.

You see, for us, the few worldwide still on Firefox 52.9.0 (32-bit) ESR, without the use of add-on's such as UBO and ABP, we simply can no longer use this browser to browse the Internet due to the massive number of ads from page to page. And while Opera does afford some internal relief, nothing works as well as my trusty old FF 52 with uBlock Origin in place which allows an hour of smooth use before needing to restart.

Please folks, do the right thing for us. This current state is nothing short of a true and realistic hardship for many of us who simply aren't able to update at the current time - or even at all, for that matter.

Firefox 52.9.0 (32-bit) ESR users need you. Don't throw us away.

I refer to the discussion at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/973320.

The result of the discussion is that by adding 2 new boolean preferences to the about:config page, and then deleting the contents of the thumbnails folder in the profile, I am referring to: browser.pagethumbnails.capturing_disabled (true) and to pageThumbs.enabled (false).

By creating those boolean preferences, it is possible to stop Firefox from showing tiles of previously visited pages in the new tab page, but having done that the new tab page still shows captions of previously visited pages - the images have gone but the web addresses are still shown. This is reported in the discussion at the address noted above.

It is not clear whether Firefox will continue to record the data in the captions as new pages are visited, but even though the thumbnails folder has been cleaned, the data in the captions is still stored somewhere.

It amazes me that having provided for cleaning of history etc for the sake of security, Firefox has been designed to make a record of the history of visited pages, and that there is no obvious way to delete it or perhaps even prevent further such data being stored. Of course, you can customise the new tab page not to show the captions, but you can easily reverse that customisation, upon doing which it is apparent that the data is still there.

Firstly, how can I stop further captions being recorded and stored, or do the new boolean preferences on th about config page achieve that? Secondly, where is the captions data stored in Firefox, and how may it be deleted? If I could not stop it from being collected and stored, I could perhaps set up a custom deletion in privacy software periodically to delete the records. I am aware that the tiles can be deleted individually, but there appears to be an endless supply of them, and so I need to delete them all together, and also automate the process of deleting furhter captions if I cannot stop Firefox from storing this data.

IIRC the default on this menus says "addons" which brings up the Mozilla page with the newest stuff. So that's what isn't loading. Probably a stuck script.

I have an Asus G60JX Laptop with Windows 10 LTSB that I'm currently running FF 52.0.1 32bit. This version allows me to run JAVA and the only reason I need Java, is so I can deposit checks online at my bank. When running Windows 7 I was able to run the latest FF 64bit version with not much issues, but with W 10 the latest version runs for a few minutes while my cooling fan scrolls up and then the PC goes into thermal shut down. I changed an MS thermal driver to an ASUS one and while that did a lot of good I still have this issue. Is there a way to limit the latest FF resource or hardware needs to allow it to run without it driving my Laptop in to thermal shut down?

PROBLEM: Accessing a site I've always used with ease, and siumilar others, login pages no longer show the Captcha "I'm not a robot." that uses the images "Click on the street signs", or "cars" or... etcetera. Yet, Chrome displays it fine, as does IE.

TESTS: - Tried to access with add-ons at normal. FF has, as always, has Adobe products blocked. FF refuses to let me use it anyway, refuses to let me upgrade it because the FF "Upgrade" link just opena a Moz wall of geekinese attempting to explain that FF is protecting me - but no update. I fought FF and was still able to update Adobe stuff.

- Tried with all addons disabled.

- The "About Mozilla Firefox" screen that cannot be copied and pasted here on barely visible, very light gray font "Firefox is up to date". 52.1.2 (32-bit) Apparently, it is now called Firefox ESR. What ever that means.

I've attached an image showing both versions. The working one by the Stalker - Chrome, and the one that quit by Firefox.

Firefox also works slower compared to Opera... Does anybody have an idea what the problem could be and how to solve it?

My computer crashed recently and I had to reload Firefox... had no problem right up till I switched off last night.

This morning I went to go online and I got a "Firefox is already running" which I thought was odd as I only just started the computer. So I hit the "close Firefox" dialog box and tried again...same thing. I have turned the laptop off waited a couple of minutes and switched on again, same thing. I also get that my profile is missing or damaged and cant be loaded...

I uninstalled it and reinstalled it and tried again, same thing.

I went to troubleshooting and it tells me to go to the Firefox file in Appdata to find the profile, mine doesnt have one. I ran a search for anything Firefox related, nothing

I cleaned my cache and cookies last night, so I dont think its an issue with that, I am just dead in the water and have no idea how to get back

For information, I was running the latest version and have Windows 8.2 64 bit

For the last couple of weeks (possibly since Firefox 52.4.0 was released) the CPU usage has been 90-99% when browsing. Sometimes when I open another tab I get a second version of Firefox showing in processes in task manager. I have had the high CPU usage before but it went away. I'm using Windows XP service pack 3. I did read about Firefox stopping plug-ins from v52 - I still have the following plug-ins: OpenH264 video codec Shockwave Flash 27.0 Adobe Acrobat 11.0.8 (showing as 'vulnerable and should be updated') Microsoft DRM (2 of these - Netscape plugin and network object) canon image gateway mycamera plug-in windows media player plug-in dynamic link library windows presentation foundation for mozilla. I'm not sure what most of these do or if they're needed! I'm using Sky Broadband speed approx 7mb which is what it's always been. Also Panda free anti-virus. Any ideas gratefully received as this is driving us mad!

I use Firefox as my main browser (new install of the latest version on Windows XP) but this is happening in Chrome, I.E. and Opera as well. I suspect it's a bigger problem than simply an issue with Firefox. I hope someone can help.

Sometimes Firefox launches just fine but then it crashes when I open a new tab. Especially if I click a link to open in a new tab, then it freezes up completely. Once that happens, I get a Not Responding message in Task Manager. I kill the process but then I can't get Firefox to open again, nor will Chrome, Opera, I.E. etc. launch. It helps if I restart the computer, but not always.

Other times I click the icon to launch Firefox and nothing seems to happen at all. When I look in Task Manager it seems like something is blocking Firefox from loading. It "chokes" at 4556kb, 7872kb, 8016kb, or sometimes as much as 8020kb. Then it stops. (A healthy instance of Firefox is 250,000kb or more, depending on how long I have been using it.) So it never fully loads the program.

I get similar results with other browsers. Chrome stops loading at 9540kb, I.E. stops at 6620kb, and so on.

This started yesterday and I've been trying to solve the problem ever since. With breaks for sleep and food I've been spending all day troubleshooting. I can't even remember all the fixes I've tried at this point.

The thing that keeps stumping me is why would it affect other browsers? If Firefox is corrupt I can reinstall it and fix the problem.

Also, I can't get Adobe Acrobat Reader to launch. I uninstalled that but haven't re-installed it yet. (Adobe's site is down.)

Can anyone think of a connection between different browsers? Or between Firefox and Adobe Reader? Is there some piece of Windows code that's common to all of these? It's a mystery!

I've been using Password Exporter by Justin Scott for some years now, and with the release of Quantum is completely breaks the addon. I don't know if Justin is working on it anymore, but there's been no sign of any update or update info from him.

I actually downgraded back to the last known version that worked with his addon because there's nothing like it anywhere (that I can find) on the addon marketplace. Same goes for a few of my other addons, but those are not as detrimental as the Password Exporter. The level of usefulness and intuitiveness has not been matched by anything else. So while I hope that Justin does update it, I am not holding my breath.

Does anyone know of a alternative to this addon that works with Quantum?

Thanks!
