How do I pause/halt/stop/freeze javascript on a webpage in Firefox? For example, this page. Using either console / keyboard shortcuts / extensions / plugins?

Last week, I had to re-installed OS X 10.8.5 (Mountain Lion) on my iMac because of lightening bolt surge. And, after doing so, I then had to re-install the Waterfox browser app. to gain better access to my email account (because the old version of Safari that came with the vintage OS re-installation is no longer viable)

My questions are: 1. Do my former bookmarks (or the Waterfox profile that they were stored in) still exist somewhere? and 2. Is it possible to retrieve them to replace (and/or add them to) the new profiled bookmarks created with the updated Waterfox app.?

I've already tried following some of the suggested help from the forum questions that I read here, but have been disheartened because no backups for my years of bookmarking seem to exist. Sadly, I never knew that there was a way to back up bookmarks prior to this recent investigation.

I recently migrated all of my files and applications from a 2013 macbook retina pro that had FF 56.0.2 to a 2020 macbook retina pro. The application transferred over with no problems with one exception. I have a blog on livejournal.com and now cannot post or reply to comments on the blog. FF just hangs and freezes. I can't even quit the page unless I quit FF totally and then restart. I can still access livejournal from Safari w/no problems. I checked my extensions (only have two) and disabled hardware acceleration but nothing has helped. Does anyone have any suggestion? I'm not crazy about safari and would like to continue to use FF. Thanks so much for any help!

I have an urgent problem. I am about to loose access to my existing primary and secondary emails, as i have been forced to try to change to a new email provider. I set up with Gmail and it was working fine until I updated windows on the 20th. Now I cannot log in I get the following error massage:

Corrupted Content Error The site at https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?pli=1 has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the data transmission was detected. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I have searched online and deleted my google cookies and cleared my cache without effect. I am getting desperate to get this fixed. My new ISP does not provide email addresses but I need two of them one for myself and one for my mother. I have been told that my existing emails my be deleted as early as 30th March 2021. I have been trying to get these new emails in place for nearly three months and I feel like this is the last straw.

I know I am using an old version of Firefox, but I need to keep my old style extensions as I use them to help me with my visual disability.

Yours Desperately, Kaelkitty

I was transferring my data from an older version of Firefox to the new version and always have enabled Firefox sync.

While setting up the new browser, I uninstalled an extension that had my settings from the new browser and it was automatically uninstalled from the older browser too.

Since I use Firefox sync, I want to know if it's possible to restore a restore the extension data from a specific time (before I deleted it). Trying to sync only restores it after the extension was deleted.

I'm running FF 56.0b9 (64 bit) on Windows 10. It got really slow and laggy. Like multiple seconds of latency after I type to see the letters and tabbing fields. I cleared the cache hoping it would fix but still the same.

Then I couldn't comment on Youtube or open the drop down under my Youtube account icon. It would just show a blank section with a spinning wheel. So I gave up and decided to reset FF.

After I reset FF, I went to look for my extensions and addons to reinstall them and when I click on the Addons puzzle piece icon in FF, it opens up a new tab with a blank page (see attached) with the addons menu items on the left (Addons, Extensions, Appearance, Plugins, Services) and a white main page with a grey box that says What are addons? After explaining what they are, at the bottom it says "when you are connected to the internet, this pane will feature the best addons for you to try out."

When I click the Extensions menu item on the left, it takes me to another blank page (screenshot attached) that says "You don't have any addons of this type installed" with a button that says "Learn more about addons". When I click that, it takes me to the previous page.

The search box in the upper right yields no results no matter what I type in there.

How can I get to that page that shows all the different addons and extensions where I can search for the ones that I need so I can install them?

Thanks.

My old PC died, luckily, I had a new (secondhand) one ready to go.

I am using a pre-quantum version of Firefox.

Where can I get legacy versions of extensions that I need?

Yes, they've all been updated and maintained, but, there are several whose functions are severaly depreciated - including one where I would now have to actually PAY MONEY to do what I used to be able to do with ease on the legacy version.

Urgently seeking legacy versions that all worked fine before my old PC hit the dust last week.

One of the reasons I'm still using 56 is that the start page preference and home page preference are separate. I can set the browser to start with a blank page, but then if I wish to quickly go to my home page I can just click on the icon in the address bar. Don't know why this feature was downgraded in the new versions, but I'd like to update - so how can I make this be so in the new version of Firefox? I want to set the start page different from the home page like 56.

It seems that there isn't an add on out there for Firefox that mimics the download status bar like in Chrome-based browsers. Not one of them are able to open files from the status bar. All of them open a window for what ever reason. Is it because bad coding on the add on dev part, or is this a limitation of Firefox itself. If it is the former, where can I start and work backwards to make one myself. If it is the later, will this ever be a feature?

Hello,

First I might not be using the right terminology/words/terms. So forgive my layman mistakes.

I am trying to clean up places.sqlite using a 3rd party software/plugin as it is much faster. I am having issues creating the SQLite script.

I would like to do two things:

1) Remove all items from the table moz_places that contain certain words in the URL and also remove it's corresponding/linked rows in moz_historyvisits

2) (MORE IMPORTANT) Remove all moz_histroyvisits that do not have corresponding rows in moz_places

I truly hate the "new & improved" FF but am feeling forced to move in that direction. Can I keep my 56.0 separate from a new, clean install and maintain the older version as my default, yet have a separate icon for the new version?

I am still using the good old Firefox v56.0.2 because of its awesome addons that NEVER got replaced in new Firefox.

I installed now as a test Firefox v78 in order to test the functionality and what i STRONGLY miss are:

a) When i hover with the mouse(and NOT click into it) to a tab for a specific amount of time I can set, then tab is being selected. That can be done with the powerful Tab Mix Plus addon in old Firefox.

b) When i right click in the page i had the option to save all images of this tab/of all tabs in the left or right and saving them in ANY FOLDER of my preference. I can do that with the Save Images 1.3.0 addon in old Firefox.

c) There was a display closed tabs list button that if you click it ONCE it makes the most recently closed tab to load and when you click the tiny ↓near it, you had a list of recently closed tabs you could choose anyone to reload.

d) How to make buttons more customizable(bigger) and with colors and themes? That minimalist design sucks for my taste and i want it to be fully configurable. I am using the beaufitul Noia theme for buttons etc in my old Firefox.


WIthout these features i cannot live with the new Firefox and i will uninstall it. Old Firefox was so much more beautiful and handy. Unless there are solutions to these.
