How do I roll back to a previous version of Firefox - I am on 49.0.1

I thought the last version was locking up too much but now that I have the "updated" version, I long for the lockups I was having.

Now I can't even scroll down a page smoothly most of the time [or up the page] - I sometimes have to refresh the page just to get further down the screen. And often just WAIT for the browser to catch up to the last dozen keys that were hit -- if it actually catches up.

What is going on? Why are you turning Firefox into the patchy mess that Explorer devolved into? Firefox Update after update after update - within days of each other, and all that seems to be happening, is that there are an increasing amount of slow-downs, lockups, and crashes. If it gets degraded much more, then it will be more difficult and cumbersome to use than Explorer. It is actually really close to that point now.

Plugincontainer is getting more intrusive and resource hogging than ever before. It usually runs in the neighborhood of 50% of the CPU time --50%!!!!

These attached images show the scrolling issue -- and please note that unless I hit F5 [refresh], the display will remain like this - I hit print screen,, pasted that into a paint file and posted here - and that page is STILL like that!!

How do I revert to a working version of Firefox? Something is massively wrong with this one.

I have got Cameras installing at my work place. Earlier I have got no problem with downloading the plug-in and opening the site to see all the cameras. However yesterday I reinstall windows and firefox again. Now I try clicking on the link to download the plug-in but nothing happen at all. (As of the picture below, normally when I click on "Please click here to download and install the plug-in. Close the browser when installing the plug-in." the plug-in should be downloaded)

However nothing happen now.

I try using other browser to download and install then in "Plugin", I choose "install add on from file", it said "This addon cannot be install because it appear to be corrupt" Below is the picture of the addon I downloaded (I try twice)

https://postimg.org/image/52oo56wqr/

What must I do? PS. I try using "add images" below but it kept loading non stop for over 15 minutes already, so I try posting image in image hosting instead.

When moving windows between my laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad P50) to my secondary monitor (Dell...can't find any model number on it but have had it a few years), Firefox goes black. If I move it back to my laptop window, it is restored. I'm running Windows10 and this is brand new laptop and I'm finding all sorts of graphics challenges using Windows10 in general (fonts too large, fonts too small, etc., with various programs) so I'm sure it is graphics related. Closing Firefox and reopening (on the secondary screen) fixes the problem.

I have you tried disabling the protected mode feature of the Flash player plugin to no avail. I reenabled it.

Now, running only 1 live stream, it is not crashing.

Thank you. Robert Allen Leeper

I would like to always open a cached offline version of a bookmarked page that I open in Firefox.

Rationale:

Viewing an offline copy of my favourite (bookmarked) websites is sufficient for me and makes it needless to fetch it again from the server, thus conserving energy.

Hello!

When opening links to HTML5 videos, I can watch them as they load but as soon as the video is fully buffered/downloaded, it either dissapears or shows a "unloaded image placeholder"-icon, depening on source. This issue doesn't seem to happen on sites such as Youtube - I've only ever seen it on sites hosting gif-esque HTML5 videos, such as the following: http://i.imgur.com/u9oX1hD.gifv .

Whenever this playback issue happens, a message from Mozilla shows on the top of the page, reading "To improve video quality, you may need to install Microsoft's Media Feature Pack", and a link to this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-video-audio-problems-firefox-windows?as=u&utm_source=inproduct . This all started to happen after the Anniversary update.

My version of Windows 10 is an N-version, meaning the media features of the default windows are not preinstalled. The issue is that I HAVE installed the Media Feature Pack already, and if I try to download the latest and install again it says that it's already up-to-date.

I can't seem to find any other threads about this particular issue. I can provide further details I have not been clear enough about my issue, or if there's any kinds of test you'd like me to do.

Thanks, Towkin

Since I upgraded to the latest version of Firefox and the latest Flash plugin on my Windows 8 laptop I can't see video on espn.com or espnfc.com. It just displays white and I can only hear the audio. I have no issues with playing videos on other sites.

I turned off my Adblock to see if it was the problem. The ad played just fine but then I get white for the video and only hear audio. Therefore I don't think that's the problem. Any thoughts?

I heard about multiprocess support (Electrolysis) when Firefox 48 came out and was hoping to be able to use it, but it kept telling me that it was disabled by addons. Being as it was just rolling out, I decided to wait until the next big update before trying to enable it again.

When the Firefox 49 update came out today I made sure that all my addons were supported and then updated. However, even now it still says disabled by addons, even in Safe Mode.

Is there something else I have to switch on in about:config? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Although I want to leave history, and other tracking features active, there are times when I would like to use the Private Browsing mode. In windows there is a shortcut menu to start Firefox in Private Browsing mode. Since I cannot locate such a similar shortcut in my current Ubuntu Mate Environment, I would like to create a launcher item to start directly in Private Browsing mode without having to open a regular window in the first place.

I am guessing it should be a simple matter of finding the appropriate command line switch to start Firefox in such a mode.
