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!

Inconsistent Firefox Instances When Started As User vs System

I'm running Firefox Portable on Windows 10. There is only one executable file in one location.

When I open Firefox as a user, by clicking the icon, I get a different instance of Firefox than if the system opens Firefox [for example, if I click on a link in a different program that opens in a browser]

How do I stop this from happening? I've attached a screenshot to illustrate the differences between the two instances:

1a/1b - User instance does not have pinned tabs, while system instance does. 2a/2b - Despite being logged in to the same Firefox Account/Profile, the toolbar is ordered differently between the two instances. 3a/3b - They're both using the same installed OneTab extension, but they have different numbers of pages stored. 4a/4b - They have a discrepancy in pages and dates for stored items.

I don't seem to have a way of selecting which instance I get manually. If I had pages pinned or saved in OneTab in a System invoked instance, without being aware it is a System instance, and my laptop restarts, I can't resume that instance and recover those pages without using another program or app to invoke it. No matter how many times I open, close, restart, whatever, Firefox myself, I won't be able to get those pages or pins back.

It caused for a lot of frustration, and doubts about my sanity, before I finally realized what was happening, and now I'd very much like to know how to make it stop and operate a unified instance no matter how it is invoked.

Dear all,

I've installed an add-on, "Telephone Number Detection" by "CTI-Telephony", that enables to detect phone numbers on any web page and to trigger a phone app ( ex : Aircall) using the phone numbers detected/clicked.

It works but Firefox always asks me to authorize the use of the phone app (Aircall) so as to open the link produced when clicking on the phone number "Allow this site to open the callto link with Aircall.exe?"

This step is useless since I've already authorized the opening via this application.

Do you any idea oh what options to tag/un-tag so as to avoid this step ?

Best regards,

ET

So I live in India and out here there is a c**t of an ISP called BSNL that provides broadband and landline service. When I browse, I tend to open a lot of Firefox tabs via Google, and some of them could be HTTP tabs. Often I could be reading a bunch of tutorials like this one: http://denethor.wlu.ca/ltspice/ which is quite long and involved. Which means that sometimes I shutdown my browser without having finished with this website/tutorial.

When I restart my browser, I hover over the Tab or scroll them to get back to what I was doing and this is where these unmitigated BSNL b@st@rds come into the picture.

They redirect all HTTP requests to https://fuptopup.bsnl.co.in/dailyFupPlanRedirection.do and I lose my Tab! I can firewall that IP by dropping its packets and that slows things down giving me enough time to hit Esc and cancel what's going on.. or what I usually do is log everything to /tmp and then poke around in log to find my URL by grepping for http://

It's still very annoying - what do I do? I would like to murder the person responsible very very slowly or at least roast their cursed toes over hot coals but besides wishful thinking - what do I do?

(they also do other village idiot type things like redirect HTTP to ads and spyware but I've not noticed that recently, after I complained to the Swedish government, about the Swedish server hosting these gross turds)

A Firefox solution would be ideal since this affects security - the random redirecting of HTTP to places unknown by unscrupulous ISPs run by the local village idiot/DSLAM. (please forgive the rude words but I'm hoping that name sticks in peoples minds - BSNL - Bharath Sanchar Nigam Limited - may the world, punitively, never hire these rotten scumbags)
