Can anyone point me to the firefox version 28 exe file fore windows?

I can find this link " https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/ " but it lists a number for version 28s (28.0, .0b1/2/3.../9) and the sub-directories there are a mess of stuff that I have no idea where to go and what to get.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I updated to 29 and the GUI change is too much for me, so I installed a really old version of ff and am looking to update back to 28 until I feel like I want to adjust to 29.

Enter key or Paste+Go don't work in my Firefox address bar. I have searched, uninstalled, deleted Firefox folders and reloaded Firefox twice, turned off my add-ons, created a new profile, ran in Firefox safe mode, refreshed Firefox, scanned for malware using multiple tools and found no malware, deleted all matter of search bars, etc. Nothing resolves the address bar non-functionality.

No, I can't type "about:config" in the address bar and press enter to forward a file.

My wife says she loaded a Java update that didn't work as intended. Wonderful. I unloaded all things Java and still no good.

Thankfully, my homepage is set to Google and I can search in Google and click the links to navigate.

I appreciate any help that you can provide. Thanks.

Is there a way to do this. Many legitimate downloads are blocked by this behaviour.

Why isn't the download stopped the moment it is initiated? (spend hours downloading legitimate files and documents only to realize firefox deletes them without any user intervention) and why is there no option to recover the download?


So far the only way to fix this issue seems to be:

a) use a different browser b) systematically lower the security settings for the browser to download a file then re-enable the options (browser.safebrowsing.enabled and browser.safebrowsing.malware.enabled)

Thank you for your time.

Just installed Adblock Plus on both IE8 and Firefox 37 – got successful messages on both. Checked on IE8, ABP is working great. Went onto Firefox and its not working.

Went to Windows add/remove programs… found the IE version BUT the Firefox version is not present. Went back and tried to install Adblock Plus again and got the following message:

“Adblock Plus could not be installed because Firefox could not modify the needed file”

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?

WHAT CAN I DO TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM?

PS: I fully removed Firefox 36 with Revo and reinstalled version 37 – same problem.

Using firefox 45.8.0 ESR on Windows.

Trying to load https://secure.scheduleonce.com/dana

The page doesn't load, and in the network panel I see a crossed padlock icon instead of green padlock icon for this request: OPTIONS https://cfproxy.scheduleonce.com/get-data/GetLandingPageLayout

on Chrome / Safari / IE and even more recent version of FF this page loads fine without any problems.

Is there any way to debug what's wrong with that reques to resource exactly ? FF doesn't give me any information as to what went wrong.

I suspect it might be related to the fact it's a preflight CORS request (the requested domain is different than that hosted page domain).

Please help.

Thanks.

Flash player can't be user anymore, and updating flash player doesn't work either anymore. Only get a white screen on the adobe website.

I downgraded to 35.0 and tried the same thing. No Problem! Moved back to 35.0.1 , Problem! Moved back again, no Problem!

I read in the forums and googled it that tons of people have this Problem but Firefox says were are all dumb asses who don't know squad.

Since I really never ever have a problem, as sys admin I know my way around virtually any software and even write my own, I can confirm this is a problem caused by firefox, so please fix it and stop saying your users are simply not smart enough!

Fact is, smart or not, a plugin should simply work, without a user taking action or not, so, regardless of his her intelligence.

My husband has been using a reliable medical site for years...suddenly the message popped up "untrusted site." We contacted the site--they connected us to their tech support--he tried everything with us over the phone (cleaning cookies, downloading latest version of firefox) but the only way to solve it was to give firefox the go-ahead to ignore their warning. We then got the site. Today, the same message popped up on another site he uses regularly. Any ideas why this should suddenly happen on reliable sites used successfully for years?

I have the "flash cookie remover" installed. I recently rebooted my router, giving me a new IP address. Then I opened Firefox in Private Browsing mode. When I searched youtube for "replace radiator" it auto-suggested "jeep cherokee" (my car) and "honda civic" (my parents car, which I occasionally work on).

Private Browsing isn't private! How do I protect myself from being uniquely identified by companies?

Hello all, For reasons of privacy, I want to be able to change the OS identifier in the user-agent string that is sent with every http request. I remember with older versions of firefox this could be accomplished in about:config and changing the useragent string, but this doesn't seem to be an option with newer versions. I have tried on both firefox for FreeBSD and Windows 8.1, to no avail.

If it is assigned at build time, could you please direct me to the area of code where this is handled so I can fork the code, change it locally, and build it for personal use?

This is the string I am trying to change: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; FreeBSD amd64; rv:53.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/53.0

I suspect it may be stored in one of the files in the ~/.mozilla directory, and while I wait for a response, I will be picking through there.

Thanks in advance,

Bookmarks sync problems: Bookmarks keep rearranging themselves in the bookmarks toolbar, and do not sync completely on Windows and Android.

My setup

I'm using Firefox 47.0 on Fedora (64-bit GNU/Linux) with GNOME shell, and on Windows 10 (64-bit). I also have Firefox Sync on an Android tablet, but I don't do as much web browsing on my tablet, so I haven't needed to look at the bookmarks there...


The problem(s)

On Fedora, the bookmarks in the Firefox bookmarks toolbar rearrange themselves. The bookmarks in one folder shift from the bottom to the top, and some bookmarks in the toolbar shift from left to right. I arrange my bookmarks by loose priority, so this annoying. Whenever I notice the bookmarks being out of order, I drag them back to where they were, but they always move themselves again later. This has been an ongoing issue for a couple months; I've only seriously attempted to troubleshoot the issue over the past week or so, and I'm not having any luck.

I don't think I've ever noticed the bookmarks moving themselves in the middle of a session, so I believe it's actually happening when I close or launch Firefox. However, reproducing this issue has been tricky, since the bookmarks do not *always* shuffle themselves every time I launch Firefox. Depending on how often I open/close the application, I may notice the bookmarks moving themselves once every other day, or a couple times in a single day.

This may be a separate issue, but I noticed it around the same time: On Windows 10, my bookmarks do not sync at all. There three or four bookmarks in the toolbar, but these do not get updated when I change them on my Linux machine, and none of the other bookmarks have synced to the Windows machine.


Things that I've already tried

I've tried reverting my bookmarks to a recent automatic backup (Library > Import and Backup > Restore). No change.

I've tried disabling all addons. No change.

I tried refreshing Firefox, to "reset to factory defaults". No change.

I tried deleting the file `xulstore.json` in my Firefox profile. No change.

I tried installing and running the Places Maintenance extension. I didn't entirely understand all the text output it generated while running, but I don't think it found any real errors. Anyway, no change.

I tried backing up my exports to a JSON file, then closing Firefox, then deleting the places.sqlite file, then restarting Firefox, and importing the bookmarks JSON file. No change.

Bookmarks still rearrange themselves on Linux and do not sync at all on Windows  :(

Firefox will not go to any URL typed into the location bar. Nor will it search for anything typed into the search bar. I have tried opening Firefox in Safe Mode, unchecking the compatibility options, clearing my recent history (the history icon doesn't even appear in the Firefox toolbar anymore), setting all Add-Ons to "Always activate," rebooting the computer, and uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, and nothing so far has work. The uninstall function must not completely uninstall Firefox because it does not delete my bookmarks which are all still present. The first symptom of a problem was an error message and the first fix I tried was reinstalling Firefox without uninstalling first. Now the error message no longer appears and I do not remember what it was.

This is a follow-up to an earlier question I asked, viz. Stop Search Suggestions in the Awesome Bar. The solution presented in that question worked for a while, but now the ugly problem has returned.

I made sure to turn off Search Suggestions for Google search (indeed, for all included search engines), and I inserted the URL described in the answer. It did no good - Search Suggestions are back.

I am able to turn off Search Suggestions in Google Chrome. I am also able to turn off Google Instant, something else I can't (yet) do in Firefox.
