I'm still on 45.0.2 and 38.6.0 for TB.  Probably during Christmas 
holiday period  I'll upgrade everything including formatting the HD 
(upgrade some hardware if necessary) and reinstall Windows 10;  This is 
my way of doing the maintenance work.  Once every year.

I used to do that with Win 7 every 6 mos.  I play with it too much and 
add/remove so much that I think it gets messy.  Personal opinion with no 
supported technical info.   With 8.1 I only did it once a year too.  But 
with 10 I've never done it.
Most of this is since I have stopped playing and screwing around with 
things.   That, and I've learned about using a VM to screw things up. :-)

That's how computers should be used.  People mess around quite a lot and 
this messes up everything including the security of the machine itself.

Computers are designed to do serious work; not to play around and 
changing things every other day.

This laptop was recently reformatted and it has relatively latest FF 
(53.0.2) and TB (52.1.0).  Works great so don't fix anything on it!!

Does "anything" include also the (security) updates for Windows?

3 days later and my Android tablet is still on 54. G-Play says 'No 
updates'

Wife's Win 10 laptop also still on 54. 'About' says 'up to date'

Is this just the effect of the limitation on the number of downloads per 
day? Is it co-incidence that it affects both? 

Even OpenSUSE's repo has it ;)

Why you shouldn't use repo builds IMHO.

REF:

My suspicion is they are spinning a 55.0.2 release and updates are still 
throttled.

I did not notice any of the problems mentioned when using the 55.0 betas 
or release candidates.

Thx. Hadn't seen that.
SUSE build of 55.0.1 working fine AFAICS, including bookmarks commands.
(Even with ABP development build.)

Well, now that I think about it.

I did see the problem with my 54.0 on Ubuntu, after I accidentally 
opened the browser, while having 56.0a1 Nightly running, realized my 
mistake, closed 54, closed Nightly, then started 54 again.

My Weather folder on the Bookmarks Toolbar showed Empty, Firefox hung 
and other problems.

Doing a Refresh Firefox fixed it, and I'm much more careful now.

Tip: Use separate profiles for each version installed and don't 
accidentally start a version while another one is running.

>From comments in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1388584 it 
appears that problems this bug is addressing is caused by someone having 
a single quote (') somewhere in the profile path. (See Comment 64 in 
that bug report.)

I am not going to suggest just downloading and installing 55.0.1 if one 
is on 54, even after checking that the profile path has no ' because 
there might be other characters in the path that might cause problems 
that they have to look for.


This is separate from problems one has when one opens a 55 or later 
Firefox using a pre-55 profile, and then attempts to run a pre-55 
Firefox. _That_ problem is that in 55 a number of changes have been made 
in persistent storage in the profiles, not just the favicons moved out 
of places.sqlite and moved into a new favicons.sqlite. The pre-55 code 
knows nothing about the changes and can fail in various ways (not just 
missing favicons). In https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=
1357428#c4 it's suggested that if one had downgraded Firefox the "easy" 
solution is to use the downgraded Firefox to "refresh" the profile 
(which will drop the extensions and their storage, but preserve 
bookmarks and history, though probably in this case without preserving 
favicons).
