Problem can download Firefox, can't get it to open. Please help. Regarding Firefox 91.0.2.dmg. same thing happens with 78.13.0esr.
Please explain the problem in detail. What happens? What is/are the exact error message(s) ?
Macs: Make sure you install Firefox properly and that you do not run Firefox from within the DMG (Disk Images) file. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-download-and-install-firefox-mac
Nothing happens when I click on the downloaded file. I. have tried to find and use an application to open the download and have been unsuccessful. I do not even have a screen shot to send as no error message is received .
Is this with one type of file, several types? Is this with all websites/pages, some, a few?
Can you provide an example?
I do not run .dmg files on a regular basis. Therefore, I do not know.
You can create a new profile as a quick test to see if your current profile is causing the problem.
See "Creating a profile":
If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.
