Recently Firefox always has the error "failed to check for update". I have tried restarting my pc and running as admin. I am on windows 10.

I have been able to manually install the latest version by installing it over the top of my current install, how can I fix the error to be sure that my browser will auto update?

Thanks

Hey, so, I've seen this question a couple times when I searched, but (a) there didn't seem to be any solution and (b) they were all regarding Macs and I'm on Windows 11 v 23H2. I keep getting bubbles saying that Firefox wasn't able to check for updates- not that it couldn't download or install updates, but it couldn't search for one. I also did the "about Firefox" thing and it gives me the same message. Both of these have been going on for a couple days and I have attempted restarting Firefox multiple times and did a manual update [125.0.1 (64-bit)] just in case there was a problem there. Now, I've tried the tips from the other threads (turning off the proxy, checking any anti-update policies, and checking the add.update.url in the config settings) with no luck. So in an effort to either bump the question or get any Windows oriented answers... Thanks muchly

Recent issue, April 2024. Had version 124 Firefox on Win10 computer and went to Help - > About to have Firefox check for updates. This has worked just fine up until now. The message "Failed to check for updates." is shown in the About screen. I have uninstalled and re-installed Firefox with the same results. Have also un-installed Firefox, un-installed Mozilla Maintenance, then removed Firefox data from App Data folder in user directory, then re-installed with the same results. Also, now when I access a local media server, I keep getting the message "Firefox is installing components needed" and that never goes away. Any ideas?

Hello,

When I go to update Firefox through the settings > general > firefox updates > check for updates, I am getting the error in the title. I can manually download the app installer and update to the most current version which is what I did for version 125.0.1, yesterday.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox, installing the beta branch, refreshing firefox, running in troubleshooting mode, completely deleting all user firefox files, and I still get the error. No DNS resolver issues to the update server. No firewall issues. No network blocking (tested with other devices).

This issue started after March update to 124.0.1 and continues to current stable release 125.0.1.

This issue also seems to extend to checking for extension updates.

Below are browser logs for when i try to check for update or update extensions.

For the past week, my browser does not auto-update. I have to download the update and re-download the browser.

I went into the settings and found the update section and when I clicked "Check for Updates", it kept saying "failed to check for updates". I tried with my proxy-settings on with VPN on, proxy-settings on with VPN off, proxy-settings off with VPN on, proxy-settings on, with VPN off.

This is in my personal laptop, where I am the only and admin profile.

My Firefox used to to auto-update but now it keeps saying I need to download the update, but my browser can't even tell if I have the most current version or not.

When I click on the link for Hyperallergic Magazine, the page doesn't load. I don't have it blocked in Notifications. I have allowed pop-up windows for it. I can't figure out what else might be preventing it from loading. It is free. I don't have this problem with any other website that I know of. I'm running the latest version of Firefox & have Windows 11 on a one-year-old PC. I didn't have this problem in my old computer, which ran Windows 7. Please help. Thanks.

1. Web pages load in gibberish, they aren't legible. 2. Web pages load with neon green blocks. 3. Firefox isn't allowing me to download an entirely new download.

I understand the gibberish could be a font problem but when I use right click for inspection options, I can't find any font info anywhere. Even if I could, what would I do then? Green blocks, have no idea. I used to use Firefox and have just now started again but would prefer a brand clean copy. Mozilla isn't giving me that option. Thanks.

As of an hour ago suddenly all of the usual suggestions and autofill with bookmarks in my address bar are wrong and out of order. I didn't close out of or update Firefox, I was just browsing online. I didn't change anything in my settings or have opened that up in days at the minimum. I cannot figure out how to either revert back or tell Firefox to not show me these choices so I can get my old ones.

I'll give an example: When I typed in "ma" it would show me mangadex.com, which I often go to. Now when I do it not only is 5th on the list it shows up and fills in "https://www.manticgames.com/", which I don't have that specific page bookmarked. I have "https://www.manticgames.com/games/kings-of-war/" bookmarked, but not that homepage. But now all of a sudden it is showing me the homepage of that site when I begin to type in "ma".

This is incredibly irritating and I have no idea why it's doing this at me out of nowhere. I don't want about anything showing up besides my bookmarks and specifically only the pages I bookmarked.

Hello, sadly I have the problem since a few days that firefox opens a new tab with the same error every time I google something or click on a new page/subpage etc. The URL on the error page is all the time "https://0.0.0.1/" mentention of course a page loading error. I don't know why firefox keeps oppening new tabs with this URL. I allrady tried to use the clearing function and even reinstalled the software, nothing worked. Maybe somebody can help me solving this problem, it is very annoying to have multiple new error-tabs per minute in a normal work flow. Thanks and best regards, Thomas

I just installed Firefox v125.0.1 on my new desktop and I am constantly being harassed by Firefox suggesting "tips" to me that I don't want nor did I ask for.

Such as this example below, see screenshot. I am browsing the web and needed to open a new tab, and immediately Firefox thinks it is okay to harass me with something that I OBVIOUSLY already know...... searching google from the address bar.

So now I have to stop what I am doing to click the "Okay, Got It" button to proceed. But, that won't stop Firefox from harassing me with the EXACT same tip in a few minutes from now.....

This isn't the only "tip" it harasses me with. It's just the only one I have managed to get a screenshot of for now.

How do I permanently disable this crap?

I have been using the internet and web browsers for 30ish years now. I'm pretty sure I know how to use an address bar by now Firefox.....

I also don't appreciate being harassed by things at all. Since this does the same "tips" repeatedly and they never stop it is absolutely harassment. Why are you showing me ANY tip more than once?????
