Anyone here tried Firefox 67.0?

It automatically downloaded this afternoon, and all my bookmarks and other settings were gone. Found an older version from the Fall of 2018 (64.0) I had saved on a flash drive, so I'm using that and Safari until I can figure out what's happened with the latest update. Any ideas would be helpful.

1. It downloaded for me too... No problems yet with bookmarks, but I've had issues

over about the past dozen updates with some content not rendering at all. I keep EDGE on my laptop for that purpose, though I don't really like it. Chrome is ok, but staying away from more Google crap, given their lack of regard for privacy.

4. I keep FF locked in my update manager so I can

decide when or if it should be updated. I don't do auto updates of anything for that matter but FF is locked solid. I've had issues in the past where they've removed things I didn't want removed.

Edit: I just noticed this is Apple users group. I donít know if you can do that with apple. I'm Linux here. Apple and Linux are basically the same system wise so I'd imagine you can.

6. I imported bookmarks from Safari and got most of the old ones on 67.0

I also went into preferences and put an end to Firefox automatic updates. They also ruined add-ons, themes, extensions and some other features. Will probably still use the older Firefox until they get this mess sorted out.

7. Happened to my roommate,

all her history is gone, pinned tabs, a few other things.

I hate when FF does that. I have reset to ASK me before you update.

8. Pisses you off, doesn't it.

I had a nice, lazy Saturday afternoon going watching baseball, and freaking Mozilla ruins the day.

9. Don't even get me started....

I have had some serious meltdowns since I got online in 1993, using AOL as the gateway, and enduring all the browser mishaps that disappeared important places that I went.

Once you are hooked, small things become major catastrophes, on the Web.

10. WTH, now they have an update out to 67.01.

Just as I finally get 67.0 update working decent, they come out with a new one. Think I will put updating off a couple weeks until there is some feedback.
