Hi,

I have a fresh installation of my Macbook OS, and a fresh Mozilla Firefox installation. I would like to re-import my old passwords and log ins, but it seems that the new version of the browser doesn't have that option unfortunately. I can see only Import from Other Platforms options, but not import from file or similar.

I have .csv file, but no option of how to import in into my browser.

I would appreciate help on this one. Thank you in advance.

I have had this issue before and uninstalling and reinstalling has fixed it in the past. Today when I opened firefox it prompted me to update , which I did without thinking. Subsequently, it stopped working. I have tried: restarting my PC, running in troubleshooting mode( it wouldn't even open when I tried this), uninstalling and reinstalling using the internet installer, uninstalling and reinstalling using the offline installer ( tried on multiple hard drives, so I don't think hardware failure is the issue), installing an older version of fire fox, and installing the 32 bit version instead of the 64 bit version. The attached images show what displays upon trying to launch firefox. nothing loads, not typing an address into the search bar, not clicking on a bookmark, the only UI element that will display is the 3 horizontal line setting menu.

When I try to open any PDF file, I have to Browse to find my pdf viewer (Flexipdf). I do that and also check your "Save this for future" option. Every time I try to open a pdf after that I still have to go through all the Browse steps. I also set up Flexipdf in your Settings and it just gets ignored.

What setting will stop the constant notice "Download the latest version of Firefox." I don't want 20 notices per day. It's like having a child in the backseat "are we there yet?" "are we there yet?" "are we there yet?" How many times do I have to click the "Dismiss" button before this stupid software understands that I do not want updates? I've noticed that this is a common complaint. Stop the bullying by making people choose automatic updates. Many times things get messed up on my computer with updates and it is not worth the aggravation. Candace M.

i wish there was a "Comments" section on https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/mac/ so i could tell people "NEVER use this!!"

i tried last week, downloaded and installed. The installation process, after unpacking the download, tried to install a "helper application". Popped up a dialog box asking for an admin userid+passwd. (even though i was obviously already running as an admin user... because i was in the middle of doing the install.) This was not an iOS dialog box from Apple, and it didn't have an option for scanning my fingerprint; this was something the "helper app" was doing on its own. Well i gave it my userid+password, and it went on to say the installation failed, and bombed out with no Firefox installed on my machine. Now, for all i know, my credentials are out there, God only knows where. So i had to go change my passwd on all of my machines.  :(

Windows 10 - Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon This fall after an update attempt, Firefox started trying to update every time it was started. Deleted Update files in Program Data. FF would restart normally one time. Update data files were always replaced and the update on every startup continued - over and over and over. Tried refreshing FF- same thing. Uninstalled FF this AM and tried to reinstall when I get the following error:

XULRunner Error: Platform version "94.0.2" is not compatible with minVersion >= 94.0.1 maxVersion <= 94.0.1

I naively tried to update my Firefox software, but then when I tried to open it, I got a message saying my system is too old. I have OS X El Capitan Version 10.11.6. I gather you can download an older version of Firefox, but the directory is rather confusing, I don't know which option I need. Any help would be gratefully received, thank you!

Hello. Before reinstalling windows i clicked sync on my firefox browser and closed it some moments after. After reinstalling windows i connected my account but my saved bookmarks, settings and passwords are gone. This is very annoying and it was the main reason i quit firefox (because it happened before). I have a backup on another drive but i can't boot into that drive and i tried with places.sqlite , key4.db , logins.json but i still can't get my settings. What can i do? I tried multiple sync and i even tried starting from that backup but all was for nothing because i don't have my settings anymore.

Few days ago, I was going to update my browser to 94.0.1 when I decided to check first "what's new".

To my shock and horror, I read: "On Windows, there will now be fewer interruptions because Firefox won’t prompt you for updates. Instead, a background agent will download and install updates even if Firefox is closed".

Seriously?... this is not an "improvement". This is just a nice way to say "we are taking over the control of Firefox updates and remove all user choice in this regard".

What is the rationale for this change?

I don't allow any programs to download and install to my PC without my knowledge and permission (including Windows Updates and even Wordpress and plugin updates on my website). I decide if and when anything gets updated to avoid crashes and other computer issues, as well as to prevent installation of something I simply don't want. This includes browser updates.

Secondly, I finally managed to reduce the space between bookmark lines in menus with a workaround in the about: settings after months of struggling with the settings created for iphone users which are unworkable on my PC (the only device I ever use the browser on).

Could someone in the know confirm please that (1) this workaround will continue to work in 94.0.1 (as the release notes are suspiciously silent on this) and (2) that this option will be permanently reinstated in the browser settings with the next update.

I am not updating my browser until I get more information about the issues I have raised, using Chrome in the meantime and...indefinitely.

thanks
