I'm running Firefox 68.9.0 ESR, and it keeps whining about an update being available. I don't care, because every time I update, one of the extensions I use every day is disabled without my permission. How do I get firefox to shut up about it once and for all? In other words, where is the "do not check for updates" command hidden, or, how else can I shut this thing up? I have, in the past, liked firefox, but it has, over the last few years, supported less and less of features I use daily, at a minimum, many times/day for most.

So how do I shut these annoying alerts about an update I have NO intention of installing off? "You can't" is not a valid answer. Nor is "just upgrade and lose half of the stuff (again) that you use all the time." Sorry if I sound angry, but these constant annoyances (and Thunderbird is doing the same---so same question for it here) are really getting on my nerves.

I have Firefox almost working the way it should. Still can't click in a bookmark toolbar bookmark and then click on "add bookmark here" like I could. That was one of those I used about 10--30 times per day, depending on what I was working on.

Thanks.

Having a lot of trouble with LastPass extension. It will go dead -- cannot log in through browser extension, nothing happens, I have to log in at LastPass.com to see my passwords.

Used to be, I could turn the extension on and off in Firefox and it would go live again. This stopped working maybe a month or so ago. (It became difficult to turn extensions off and on, the little button just wouldn't stay in the Off position. Just refreshed to Firefox 77 and now it's even harder to turn extensions off and on.)

Then I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the LastPass extension a few times. This would work for maybe a few days, then the extension would go dead again.

I refreshed Firefox yesterday to address this problem (and Firefox's own frequent crashes); the LastPass extension worked after install but went dead overnight. Turning it off and on does not revive it.

LastPass support has been no help. Despite similar complaints from others on different OS platforms, LastPass claims it cannot replicate the problem.

It is possible LastPass just doesn't work in Firefox any more?

For about a year, Firefox tabs have been crashing fairly frequently (I laugh every time I send a crash report to Mozilla). Recently, these became more frequent: The tab crashes occurred several times a day, and the entire browser would crash several times a week.

(Firefox push updates sometimes crashed not only the browser but my entire Mac.)

Yesterday, I refreshed Firefox. It installed version 77. I have had some difficulty reinstalling 3 of my browser extensions, v. 77 doesn't seem to want them and I need to go through the install routine several times. It's difficult to turn the extensions on and off, too.

But that's not why I'm here. I'm here because after refreshing Firefox yesterday, yes, a Firefox tab crashed this morning.

I'm just about done spending any time troubleshooting Firefox. I don't want to go to Chrome but Firefox has become so unreliable, I may not have a choice. Mac OS 10.12.6 Sierra, Mac mini.

I am running a 2008 Imac on OS 10.11.6, and using Firefox 77.0.1 (64 bit).

Much of my work is online with one website, which I log onto daily. Today, I was unable to login because I received a "Did Not Connect. Potential Security Issue." I restarted, made sure Firefox was up to date, etc. The problem repeated.

Then I tried the website in Chrome. I got the same thing. I tried it in Safari. I got the same thing.

I called the company and spoke with tech support. He was unable to recreate my problem on his PC or his Mac. He confirmed that there was no certificate issue at the company and that they were not getting any other similar complaints or problems.

I then tried it on a Mac running 10.15, and was able to access the website easily, with no error messages.

My question is: is the problem my computer, and not the browsers or connections? Is there anything I can do short of buying a new computer?

Thanks for the help. Greg

Address autofill is a great feature, and I find it very useful. Is there a way to prevent data from being added to the list of addresses though? It has made 4 different copies of my home address with varying capitalization, with and without "St," the zip+4, and the country code on my phone number. I can't tell the entries apart when I'm filling in a form, so I end up having to change it manually, totally defeating the purpose.

Somehow it keeps adding my old address where I haven't lived in 18 months, and my parents' address, even though I haven't ordered anything for them since last summer, and I haven't lived there in a decade. I also did some ecommerce testing for work last week, and now I have to delete 30 fake addresses.

There has to be a way to say, "These are all the addresses I want to autofill; don't add to this list anymore." My password manager asks me before it fills itself with garbage. Is there any way to use autofill and not add new addresses?

I would like to have in next version of Firefox a checkbox, when I click on a text field which has saved username, then I would only see saved usernames for this current website. Now I see saved usernames for all websites.

So when I click on a checkbox, the saved usernames in blue reactangle on picture below, won't be shown. I will only see usernames "From this website".

This can be useful, when there are many saved usernames for many websites.

Hi,

I had applied the settings to disable the new urlbar features, but as of version 77 these no longer work.

I absolutely hate this change; it does nothing useful, it interferes with viewing the page, and it very much feels to me like change for the sake of change.

If someone can pass this on to whoever makes these unilateral decisions :

Don't make changes to the user interface that are not optional. How do they not understand that changing the UI for hundreds of millions of people is not a good idea?

So my question is, how do I disable the new urlbar "features" and return to a plain static one?

This is not a practical question (I'm sorry). I'd just like to understand.

A few years ago, it was necessary to install a plugin in order to playback a video (for instance the VLC-web-plugin). Nowadays, plugins are not necessary. You can just assign an application such as VLC player to a specific file type (In Firefox -> Options -> General -> Applications you can choose which file type is opened with which application). But whats the technical difference between VLC installed on operating system level and VLC as a web-plugin of Firefox? Both are external programs (locally installed) started from within the browser.

I know, that it is the goal of web2.0 to get rid of the plugins, as they are security risks and not user-friendly. However, what is the difference if I can assign an external program to render the file? Is it maybe, that only the plugins such as flash and shockwave can change the html-code on the client side and make the website interactive (and more insecure)?
