1. My ebay search add-on defaults to ebay UK while I'm in the US. Ebay US search is not listed in add-ons. How can I change to the ebay US?

2. Recently google pop-up "sign in with g" started appearing on many websites. I tried turning them off in g settings and set it to block pop-ups, but they still pop up! No blockers work in FF while the same pages in Brave are g-free. How can I block g once and for all?

Nearly all addons stop working after restart. How to fix?

Submitted by masterton on November 23, 2022 - 10:12am

1. Nearly all addons stop working every time I restart Firefox.
I have to manually disable and re-enable each addon to make them working again.

It takes considerably long time the first time I load the first website after I restart Firefox.
Also it may suddenly hang after using for a long time.

What's up? How could I fix them?

2. I would like to transfer all settings, cookies/local storage, addons (settings and files etc.) to a fresh copy of Firefox portable, to see if those issues would be fixed. What should I do? Which files do I need to backup?

FF 102.3.0esr (64-bit) Doesn't update

Submitted by Norbert01 on November 21, 2022 - 12:10am

FF 102.3.0esr (64-bit) says 'You are currently on the update channel' but doesn't update. I see 102.5.0 is available. Originally said policies managed by organization. Enterprises Policies. I Deleted [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox]. Enterprises Policies now gone, but message hasn't changed nor can I update.
Using Win 10

I looked at customizing Firefox Using policies.json, but I could be there for weeks solving my issue

If you used one of a handful of versions of Firefox Portable, it may have created a local shortcut for Firefox Private Browsing. This was fixed in Firefox Portable 106.0.3 Rev 2. To remove the shortcut from your local PC, you can use the Remove Firefox Private Browsing Shortcuts utility.

You can also manually delete it: right-click on it in your Start Menu, select More, and then Open File Location. You can then delete the shortcut from there.

[Fixed] Firefox Portable 106.0.3 Adds Firefox Private Browsing to the Start Menu

Submitted by jb28147 on November 1, 2022 - 3:06am

After updating to and running v106.0.3, it adds a Firefox Private Browsing entry to the start menu. The previous version didn't add the entry to the start menu. I don't have Firefox installed on the system and I updated it with the updater from the platform.

OS: Win 10 64-bit

How do I start my copy of Firefox Portable in 32bit mode?

Submitted by Astrologeos on October 31, 2022 - 3:44pm

Hey, what's up. I've been using the 64bit portable build of Firefox obtained from this page for a while, and I can tell Mozilla has never addresses the problem with RAM on low RAM systems. 64bit copies of Firefox just increasingly consume RAM slowly over time and there's no way to deal with it other than to restart the full browser.

This is annoying, so I'd like to use the 32bit build which has worked for me well in the past. I can see its files are there in the App\Firefox folder, but how can I boot it up in Portable mode?

I got a 404 attempting to download the English version of 106.0.1 from the link at the top of the page ( I don't know if the link or the subsequent redirect has an error, or if the file is missing from the target location.
