Sorry if this has been said, i haven't been able to find it using the words i know. First of all, i'm newbie in general so if anything is missing in the explanation just let me know. My computer uses Linux ( Ubuntu 17.10).

The problems are several and are connected, i believe. Some years ago, when updating the firefox browser throught the "official app store", the name of which i only know in catalan, "programari" and haven't been able to find the analogous name right now. The update was actually an installation of firefox quantum that duplicated my Firefox browsers ( at least in icons, i had both ) as i now had the updated one and the old one, which i simply stopped using. Several problems arose in using this format , for example when i try to open from terminal Jupyter lab i needed to have already open the quantum version, otherwise it would simply open it in the old browser and that was a problem for other things not interesting here maybe. There came a moment where this new so called quantum browser stopped working, i.e. it crashed in completly white screen, while not being able to close it, and, furthermore, without being able to uninstall it, again from this app store, as everytime i tried it the app store window would just show me that it was working ( i pressed uninstall and the "cercle around" dynamic icon showed), but no matter the time i left it to finish it never did/does. Now i'm trying to, again, update the OLD firefox browser i had because it is so old ( version 61 ) that many webs can't even be used ( Netflix for example). HOWEVER, i have to say that any of the official helps to download/update firefox has been of no use for the moment. That is, the "update firefox to latest release"( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-release) page assumes that the update will take place by just going to << Help->About firefox>>, but it doesn't; and the alternative method, using "Choose which Firefox Browser to download in your language" page ( https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release) downloads me a compressed file ( in concrete firefox-88.0.tar.bz2). What is the problem with this? i haven't found a single word saying what to do after this download... i'm a newbie i only see a whole bunch of archives and files within but i don't have the Icon to press( yes, there is the firefox executable program that if you press appears the browser, but how can i place, and use, this outside the file( when i move it outside it stops working)) and so be able to use access the browser without having to go all into the downloaded file?

I know this is extremely long and i apologize for it. Here in the following i'll simply summarize the questions mentioned in hope that someone has any answer: 1) Why Firefox quantum, installed from the official app store in Linux ( it is/was the only Firefox appearing there as if it was the older version), didn't update the last version i previously had and made instead a duplicated, conflicting sometimes with the older ( Jupyter lab problem mentioned ), version. 2) Why has this Quantum browser suddenly crashed in my computer and why i can't even un-install it. 3) What is to be done with the update-downloading compressed file ( coming from https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release ) as to end up with the nice-looking, usually found, firefox browser icon in the screen, instead of having to go inside the file to use it.

Many thanks to anyone being able to help this troubled-guy in his proces of not going back to google chrome and windows.

My old computer crashed. I lost all my passwords. However, I had signed up for a firefox account and told it to save all my pasword and bookmarks.

Now I'm on another computer, I can log into firefox but I can see no place whatsoever to sync the online data I saved from the old computer to this one.

How is this done? None of the articles online even remotely match what I am seeing.

I accidentally deleted a single bookmark in a folder in my Toolbar.

So I created a restore point just in case, and then used the restore feature.

So when I restored my bookmarks, it froze firefox.

So I restarted and it restore everything except the toolbar.

The Bookmarks Toolbar is there, it's just empty, and all my extremely important bookmarks in the toolbar just don't exist. I even confirmed that they're gone by adding new things to the Bookmarks Toolbar, every bookmark in it is gone, with all the folders.

I am a designer and these were super important to me, please help, all my internet searches are extremely unhelpful, since they just say to restore, or check if the toolbar is being displayed(it is), the specific bookmarks in the toolbar are gone...

Starting two days ago screenshots just stopped working. Now whenever I try a page with a sad bear opens and closes within a second and a message in the corner says "Out of Order. Sorry!

I have done clean install of Firefox 70.x after following *all* the help articles I can find here in these forums relating to low laggy Firefox. This is with no add-ons, etc. Basic Clean install of 70.x The issue remains. I still use Flash on a couple of sites so I have it installed after troubleshooting. I did have the install for 68?? and it has the issue too, after clean install. Not sure of the exact number but closer to the newer 70.x

Loading all sites is just slow! Tried from 3 different ISPs. Usually it shows the TSL Handshake lag but not always. Disabling the antivirus fixes the issue BUT I have tried Avast, AVG and E-Set. All have the same allergic reaction with Firefox while Google Chrome remains fast to load no matter how "heavy" of an Internet Security I use.

I am at a loss and hate have to go back to 61.x to fix this issue. It is fast and smooth with any Internet Security available. 62.x just loads like NOW. No delay... :( Hours of uninstalling and reinstalling different software to prove to myself that the newer FireFox is very slow if you use any Internet Security.

I cleared out my History, Form, cookies, and cache a week ago and ever since I have one webpage, and ONLY one, that simply keeps giving me this error:

The connection has timed out

The server at www.consumercellular.com is taking too long to respond.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Now, the site simply can't be temporarily unavailable for over a week, especially since I have no trouble opening and logging into it using the Chrome browser on my tablet. However, even IE on my desktop gets this same message. As mentioned earlier in this message this is the only webpage that does this. All of my other ones work just fine and dandy. And I know it's not my firewall, since even with it turned off I get the same thing. Now, I really need to be able to access that website so if anyone can help me get this cleared up I would appreciate it. Just know that I'm not the most computer literate person around so any explanations need to be easy to follow!

This is the second time in this week that my browser has been Hijaaked by Mozilla. I am running a pre v57 (v51.0.1) version of Mozilla DELIBERATELY so you guys will keep your hands OFF my browser- Yet here we are again with your fingers in my configuration. I am using 51.0.1. I have disabled upgrades. I have disabled xpi checks. I have set my whitelist to ALL. I have changed the reported version in use to keep you from forcing an upgrade ... WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF MY CONFIGS!

I will decide whether an extension i have used for YEARS is a problem! I not you. Please give me a config property for v51.0.1 that will prevent you from doing ANYTHING without my active agreement and participation. I depend on the add-ons I have installed. I use them and they work. This is twice you guys have screwed me in one week. WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF MY CONFIGS! I know I can set all Mozilla files to read-only but that requires me to cycle on and off to perform some tasks and I can just see those greedy fingers looking for a hole to meddle into

I repeat from my last complaint: A feature without an OFF switch is a defect.

Please tell me how to fix this DEFECT and keep your fingers OFF of my desktop

This morning a significant number of my installed addons failed their signature test. Among these addons were uBlock Origin, Honey, Tampermonkey and Reddit Enhancement Suite. All of these addons are well known, so why have their signature tests failed? Furthermore, I seem completely unable to reinstall these extensions, despite them being available on the addon store.

The real problem is this: Why was this failure instant? This is unacceptable behaviour, a cooldown period needs to be available to allow someone to prepare a solution. I.E - a warning that "x addon does not meet standards and will be disabled in x days". Simply halting those addons and telling the end user after the fact is poor, poor behaviour - and was why I moved from Chrome to Firefox in the first place.

Furthermore, why is no workaround available on the stable channel? I'm astounded that a UX design this poor is a product of Mozilla.
