53 will not start

upgraded 52.0.1 to 53, FF would not start. Won't stay resident. Tried the 53.0.2 rev. 2, same thing.

It was an incompatibility

It was an incompatibility with Startup Master, which throws up a password box before it will let FF start.

I disabled SM before installing 53, then it started ok, I updated my add-ons - including SM - and restarted, enabled SM and all is good.

going back to 52.0.1 ???

how does one go back to 52.0.1 after an auto-update to 53? have a major problem with 53, need to go back for a while and wait untill they sort it out. where do i find a 52-PAF file? or is there any other way?

SourceForge

You can download the 52.1.0 release here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/portableapps/files/Mozilla%20Firefox%2C...

Note that using it on public sites is not recommended as it has known security issues, as do all releases prior to 53.0.2 (or the ESR branch): https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox/#fi...

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

no choice

tks john, worked fine, got the ESR release, and am back to 'normal'.

i have little choice but to be careful where i surf and what i do, but i am
using an addon (lazarus) that is vital for what i do and how - and have
found no good alternatives. but supposedly somebody is working on it ...

strange enough, lazarus works under CHROME, any version, 90%.

greetings - heinz -
