The recent updates over the last couple weeks have completely destroyed FF. Of course I thought simple, I'd just roll back and un-update FF. Nope, no provision whatsoever.

After the updates, paypal wouldn't work and there were several more problems.

This really sucks and is only the second time in MANY years of using FF that I'm sitting here considering what other browswer I may consider using. Gee, miserable and intrusive Google Chrome and Edge is installed and for whatever reasons, I have a bit more faith that they won't ever torpedo me like this and almost to the point I don't care if they hand everything I do to anyone's government.

The worst series of UPDATES ever and there have been some pretty cruddy ones before.

Firefox works for me.  :-)

Perhaps you simply need to reset to factory conditions!

Hit those three parallel bars in the top right hand corner and work from there!

Good luck!

They already stated they resorted to the last ditch effort of resetting Firefox and lost saved passwords.

Might be they weren't saved in Firefox, but another password manager. Probably an extension, which are easy to recover by going to the Old FIrefox Data folder created on the desktop, and copying the extensions folder into the repaired profile.

Go Bucs and Pens!
