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!

Hello

There is a website that won't go off my URL bar suggestion. I have tried everything I came across searching about this problem : - choosing the entry with the arrows and clicking on the DELETE button (holding SHIFT or not) - removing the website from my history - clicking on "forget this website" in the history - some other things I don't exactly remember

None of this has worked... The website isn't even bookmarked ! When I type "rs" on the search bar, I want rs-online.com and not rs-particuliers.com to appear. You can see the problem is this video : https://youtu.be/Vq5dUpkf534

This is driving me crazy... I use this website (rs-online) every day, and I never use the other one... I want it to get OFF my computer... Sorry if this isn't the right place !! Ask me anything you need to know !

Have a great day

I'm using Mac OS Big Sur and my setup has an external display. When using any other application on my mac, I can use Window > Move to <display name> to move windows to my external display and back. Because I can map a keyboard shortcut to this function, I use this all the time to move my windows around so I don't have to take my hands off my keyboard.

Firefox however seems to be the only application that doesn't implement this for some reason. Has any other Mac user found a way around this?

Hello. I am the user of Firefox browser. My main browser is firefox for recent years. I've been using it very well. I am very satisfied with the customization of Firefox. But today, Firefox stop several times when i use youtube and google. Some youtube videos are not start, and scroll is stop end Firefox says "No response" when i am searching in google. Some of the youtube didn't run at Firefox, so I played them in Chrome and it worked well. And it was not an Internet problem. Because other online programs such as messenger worked well. I bought a new desktop and formatted it a month ago, and I installed the latest versions of Windows and Firefox. This is why I think Firefox is a problem. Please check why Firefox stop today. Thank you.

Before when using Firefox, if I wanted to print, I could select - from the File drop down menu - either Print or Print Preview. Now Print Preview seems to have disappeared! All I get is Print and then a selection menu makes me manually select custom to list the page or pages I want, and then select the size of the printed page - all VERY inconvenient and VERY difficult to use. What happened? Was that an update to Firefox recently. If so, VERY poor decision and programmer that decided on this change should be fired.

For nearly half a year I've had a very strange issue with a tab that simply vanishes. It's taken a while to notice and then figure out the pattern, and here's how it seems to go...

I launch Firefox, which already has many open tabs; it's set to reopen my previous session. Typically I then open a new tab to check my email, do a DuckDuckGo search, or something else (but the activity/website doesn't seem to matter). Then something in my email or my search will inspire me to open a second new tab. All of a sudden when I do that, the first new tab of the session is gone. So for example if I was checking my email and saw something I wanted to research, I'd open a new tab and all of a sudden the email tab is gone.

At least a few times I've then opened a *third* tab to go back to the website I just lost, and suddenly the vanished tab will reappear, and I'd then have duplicate tabs on the same website.

Much more often the vanished tab does not return until *later.* That is, I eventually close Firefox and eventually reopen it, and suddenly there it is again. I believe, but I'm not certain, that this *always* causes the vanished tab to reappear. It's a pain to rely on this fix, though, especially since it can take something like 20 seconds to reload all those tabs.

I think this strange behavior only happens when I first launch Firefox -- in other words, only once per session. I've never noticed it hapening a second time in the same session. I can freely open new tabs without fear of losing another (at least none that are in the visible part of the tab row).

Anyone else have this issue? Or can you recreate it?

This may be messy, sorry. I hated the new FireFox appearance, so stuck with 78 on MacOS 9. I never approved the update, but somehow, my FireFox upgraded after a crash. Of course, it gives me the constant :

Error code: SEC_ERROR_LIBRARY_FAILURE

I want to go back to 78. (I am aware of security considerations, I use other browsers for that.)

I tried reading the forums, but do not see this question.

I am hoping if I can log in to FireFox 82 to my account somehow, it will save the active tabs. (there are 100 active tabs yes, because of end of year issues) FireFox 82 cannot log in.

I saved my profile, ran 78 and it lets me log in, but with a new profile, so I cannot open previously open tabs.

So my question is: How can I import the active tabs and all bookmarks into FireFix 82? (assuming I need to do a reset?) How can I get the active tabs into FireFix 78? (preferred, as I do not like the new look in 79+)


thanks!!!
