There are several posts on this site regarding uninstalling Firefox. I am running current Firefox on current W10 64bit 1903 desktop PC using Ethernet with Spectrum as my ISP. I am having a couple of problems in Firefox that are not happening in current Chrome. 1. Page-not-found 2-8 times a day that resolve every time by simply clicking the "retry" (or something close to that) button. I reset my router to "factory" and installed most current router firmware but that did not help. Netgear Support has been unable to help. 2. In current LastPass addon, I have to re-login to LastPass every time I start Firefox - did not used to do that (a year ago), and in Chrome or Edge that does not happen. I have re-installed the LastPass add-on. I have upgraded Firefox many times and have cleared history/cache many times. So now I want to COMPLETELY remove Firefox, reboot, and then install Firefox from scratch. Can someone please point me to the web page that tells me how to properly remove all of Firefox so that I can re-download/install it from the beginning? I do not care about retaining my Firefox settings or other from my current Firefox install.

I'm still using an older version of firefox to keep essential add-ons that Quantum no longer had. I'm having problems on a windows 7 computer with the version I have on it, and would like advice on the best way to proceed.
I had copied over my profile from a different computer where I'd been using FF55. I'd had some problems with 55, so I installed 52 on this computer, but using that profile. It's not working very well as I can't get vertical tabs or vertical tabs reloaded to work, it's also crashing fairly often for no apparent reason, etc. Now even the "+" symbol to add a new tab has disappeared from the tab bar, and I don't have a clue why or how to get it back!). For what it's worth, this isn't a malware/virus problem - I'm running McAfee and also periodically malwarebytes etc., and scans aren't finding problems. Computer has been restarted several times and so on, and I'm still having the problems. Could this be because the profile was from a firefox 55 version and it's being used on a FF52 version? Or would that not cause this sort of problem?
I don't want to go to 56 because I gather it won't be able to access my older saved sessions (I use Session Manager and those are the sessions I'm concerned about - so if this is NOT a problem, please let me know). I'm concerned about this because wiki says: "...Another change was the introduction of the mozlz4 format, a proprietary variant of the lz4 compression format (.mozlz4 and .jsonlz4 file extensions instead of .json.lz4 as per unix/linux standard). Session data is stored in the lz4 format instead of plain text. Firefox 56 can not recognize the legacy plain text session files, only the lz4-encoded ones...."
So I'm wondering if I should go to 55 on this computer, or 52ESR? I gather the ESR would have better security - but want to know if there's a difference in add-on compatibility or other features since 52ESR is, I gather, based on older code than 55?
If someone could talk me thru the pros and cons of using 55 versus 52ESR I'd sure appreciate it!!!
Also, I would be VERY grateful if folks could point me towards: 1. a reasonably safe site where we can search and install legacy add-ons 2. any webpage which has a good information showing which legacy add-ons now have reasonable replacements in the current FF version.
Installing unverified add-on Firefox 70.0.1 (already refered old answers which doesn't help in my scenario)

With respect to an (archived) question here : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1134589
Scenario: I am an SDET, I am required to automate a test which requires an addon to be installed on firefox browser.
Even After setting xpinstall.signatures.required as false, I was not able to load the addon, upon seeing the above thread The possible solution left was to use firefox-developer edition. But I need to mimic the behaviour of addon as an enduser would do. (End users use stable version). Also, as an automation engineer, I am using an unsigned addon in the staging environment and NOT production environment.
So, What is the way to load the unsigned addon in firefox stable (not developer edition) ?

I have FF 68.2.0ESR 32bit on Win7. I now want to move to a different machine, using Linux (RHEL8) with FF 68.1.0 ESR 64Bit. I transferred the profile from the Windows machine to the Linux machine and everything came over perfectly. But the passwords are not offered after selecting a login. Example: There is a page with "login" and "password". I have two accounts for this page. I click into "login" and both login-names are offered by firefox. I select one account. Now I'd expect that the password is filled automatically. But it isn't. Even if I click also into the "password" field. The same with pages where I have only one account.
I found some threads where key3.db is mentioned. I searched in my profile folder and didn't find a key3.db but a key4.db. I created a copy of key4.db and named it key3.db. No success. The permissions of the files where 600 (rw-------). Ich changed them to 644. -> No success.
What might be missing here?

I have Firefox 70.0.1 64bit on a Windows 7 PC, I want to use Firefox with the same profile on a new Windows 10 PC. What I did: 1) I copied the profile folder xxxxxx.default to a stick 2) Installed Firefox on the Windows 10 PC 3) Located the "default" Profile folder 4) Copied the content of my old profile folder to that "default" Profile folder, overwriting files
On 1st start, Firefox looked fine, restoring all my tabs. On 2nd start, I had no tabs, no bookmarks, nothing
What can I do?

I would like a simple answer to getting my passwords and logins back , or revert to an older versiob of FF. I am V 70 something and on Windoze 10 In the future how do I save older versions so that when I run into a problem after an update, ( about one in three) I can dump the update until someone puts the FU right. I looked at replacing key3. V70 has Key4 and I am extremely pissed off about this. Why oh why do the updated keep rolling out so often without being bug checked?????
Yahoo mail doesn't work w/Firefox. I can't log in unless I delete all cookies, EVERY TIME. Then the date/time stamp is incorrect. But all works fine in Chrome.
Since updating to Firefox 70, I can't access the ATT log in page. Or rather, I CAN access the page, but the login form (user name/password) quickly disappears. So I can't…
Since updating to Firefox 70, I can't access the ATT log in page. Or rather, I CAN access the page, but the login form (user name/password) quickly disappears. So I can't log in. Which means I can't access my emails. After poking around, I read that the solution is to delete all cookies, cache, etc. But I have to do this EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. This is uniquely a Firefox issue, and a new issue. I can easily log into and access my ATT/Yahoo email with Chrome and on my iPhone,
Once I do log in (after deleting all cookies), starting yesterday, the email time stamp is wrong. It's 8 hours ahead. My ATT account settings are correct. And my emails on Chrome show the correct date and time. So this again is a Firefox issue.
How can I fix this? Or is this a bug with the latest version of Firefox?

I deleted the FF download I had been using because I was having an issue where my bookmarks bar wouldn't show up, the max/min/close buttons on the window wouldn't appear, and nothing I typed would appear in the address bar. This was a clean download where I deleted FF from the applications folder.
The new download works fine if I double click the application directly in the download window (where it prompts you to drag it into the applications folder) and then sync my account to get the bookmarks and extensions back. Once I do drag the application into the applications folder and then try to open it from there, I am stuck with the same issues described above with an unresponsive address bar and no min/max/close buttons.
I've attached a screencap of the problem window and the "download window" in case either of those things were not clear.
