I am using Firefox Nightly. It receives updates every day, but most of the time I cannot restart Firefox as soon as update is available. I want to delay it till next natural restart (ex.: night), however, Firefox shows notification about the available update. It's a minor issue, but seeing notification every day and having it to close every time gets annoying very quickly. I want to disable update notification but keep automatic updates. How can I do this?

i've already tried all of the fixes stated here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files and i've tried logging out my mozilla account and downloading, i've tried starting firefox in safe mode without any add-ons, i've tried pretty much everything i can think of. no matter what the download fails and a 0kb file is created instead. when i try to download a webpage i get a 0kb html file and a folder containing all the contents of the html file, also i can download images perfectly fine even though it says they fail. i've tried downloading multiple types of files and it's not just webpages, .zip files fail, .exe files fail, everything that isn't a photo fails. the only other thing i can think of is .pdf files do a similar thing to html files, where a 0kb .pdf is created and a .pdf.part file is created the size of the actual pdf. also i've tried downloading using other browsers (excluding chrome, because it crashes my pc on startup) and they've worked perfectly fine, firefox and firefox nightly are the only programs having this issue.

I am using Firefox Browser V81.0 (64-bit) on MacOS Catalina and I'm experiencing issues with downloading files specifically from Google Drive. I can download other files using Firefox, but it doesn't work when using GDrive. I know it's an issue with Firefox because I've tried downloading the GDrive files using Safari and it's fine.

What happens is I'll click download and then there is no prompt that asks me if I'd like to download the file.

I also looked at this thread and followed the troubleshooting measures (including clearing the browser cache and starting Firefox in Safe Mode), but it did not solve the problem: [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1157677]

I've also tried un-installing/re-installing Firefox. And I have my adblocker disabled for Google Drive.

Any suggestions for how to resolve the problem?

When I view databases through Firefox, the date/day format is set at month, day, year (US style), whereas I need day, month, year, I work in the UK and the "wrong" format is VERY confusing and could lead to errors/mistakes. IE has that format but I don't want to revert to using that.

sw os microsoft xp sp3 v2002 ff v16.0.2 (not upgradable not to v18 nor v20) several plugins (few classics, see below) and addtional components (noscript, etc.)

problems 1)can't upgrade from v16 to v18 or any other higher version; downloading and installing v18 and restarting ff does not make any change, if not resetting all options and settings; i've tried several times within months; 2) although automatic check of new versions is unticked, at launching it often starts in default modus (all resets, history deleted, default starting page, etc.) as if made an autonomous upgrade/renewal to a higher version;

couldn't find any literature or contribution, if not the one of v12-13 for xp sp1 or 2;

theory could it be that ff 16.0.2 is the real last working version for ms xp sp3?

solution what are the solutions? if above mentioned theory is true, what can i do? at what stage is ff OS?

thanks to all foxes

Since updating to Firefox 67, myself and my clients either have a **.default or a **.default-release profile. This is despite the fact that we only have one version of Firefox installed and some computers have the -release profile whereas others don't for some reason.

I am aware that a number of people have reported this. However, it's not clear if this is a bug where there is only one version of Firefox installed or intended result.

My main question is going forward will Firefox be using the -release format or the .default profile? In other words, was there a bug in a Firefox version causing it to create a -release profile even if there if there was only one Firefox version installed or is it just a case of some computers have not phased in the new profile name yet. This would explain the inconsistencies between computers.

The reason that this is a problem is because I use a script to install ublock origin and also to copy a user.js preferences file to configure Firefox. I am now having to copy to both -release and .default profiles on every computer and I have designed the script to install ublock to a -release profile.

I would prefer to have one profile moving forward, but need to know whether this will be .default-release or simply .default. Thank you

The main use of the PC in my living room is as a media center. My GUI (Plex) runs in the browser and plays videos with VLC via a custom addon. Currently it is also used for browsing from time to time and I need to keep that part of it secure. As Mozilla is about to break all my addons as well as force me onto 64 bit, I've no choice but to stop updating Firefox on that PC.

I found a old post (3 years old) about running two different versions of Firefox at the same time. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/974208

Is it still possible to do this? Does the same methods still work?

I want to freeze my current 32 bit Firefox at v54.0.1 and use it only for local content. (I've already disabled updates on it)

Then I want to then install a second 64 bit Firefox v55, use it for internet, and allow it to update normally.

If this isn't possible I'll just have to switch to a different browser.

A couple versions back, I started getting this pop-up message each morning, "Firefox can't update to the latest version". I downloaded a newer version and upgraded manually a couple times, now up to 70.0, and the pop-up keeps happening. I see a couple other people have reported a similar problem, one here was blown off because they were, supposedly, running a beta version. I'm not running beta. The other one I found was fixed by doing something to the registry, but I'm on Linux, not MS Windows so there's no registry (at least none that I know about).

The one other symptom I've noticed is that when I bring up the "About Firefox" window, it takes a really long time to figure out that "Firefox is up to date". And it always says it's up to date (if I wait long enough) even when there's a newer version available.

It would be greatly helpful if that pop-up would say *why* it couldn't update itself but it does not give any useful information.

Thanks for any help on this.

My present iMac is failing rapidly and I will be replacing it with a new Mac very. I do not have a Time Machine backup. The only info I really need is how to copy off, to an external drive, all the bookmarks and bookmark structure), extensions, and add-ons I have added to Firefox, and then add them to Firefox on my future Mac.

Do I just copy the Firefox app to the external drive? I looked in the Macs' base system Library and Preferences, and in my User files, but I do not see anything related to Firefox.

My old (current) and failing Mac is running the latest version of Catalina,

Thanks for any info!

When I used to click on a link a box opened up - "you have chosen to open:" and asked what Firefox should do with the file giving me a choice of "open with" or "save file". I would click "OK" on "open with" Microsoft Word and it would open. Now it does not do that. It just goes directly to the download icon and when i click on that it says its downloading the link. I've been able to go from there and get to the file and open it but most of the time it wont. Regardless, I would like it to open immediately like it did originally. I think i must have accidentally changed something somewhere but I have no clue. I'm very computer illiterate. I appreciate any help I get on this!
