Hi. Previously I installed Firefox on Ubuntu with command `sudo apt install firefox`. I'm using Firefox 88.0 for Ubuntu. I want to update it to the latest version. When I try following commands: `sudo apt update` `sudo apt install firefox`

It says "firefox is already the newest version (88.0+build2-0ubuntu0.20.04.1)." But I know version 89 and 90 are released.

I attached "About Firefox" window. There is no update button.

I have an old PC desktop which I would like to replace with a newer model. I want to get a used one with Windows 7 on it. I know Windows 7 is no longer supported but I have a lot of old software that I use, some not often, and have no desire to purchase new software. I was told that I could not download Firefox onto a newer PC with Windows 7. Is this true? I do have a laptop with Windows 10 that I use for on line ordering, etc. I like the desktop as it has a decent keyboard and mouse.

Not for the first time, but now on a brand new computer, I suddenly cannot download any files in firefox (from PDFs to wetransfer links etc.). I have followed all the online advice there is. In troubleshoot mode I can download files. However by a process of elimination it is not caused by hardware acceleration, addons or extensions or my avast antivirus. This is really troublesome and I really need to download alot for work.

i got a new browser, was trying to get it to recognize mailto commands. instead it opens a window to go to a profile (tried it in edge does the same thing).

originally it was finding an old profile i made ages ago, but it insists on making a brand new profile.

the thing is, i don't have a profile, all my files are listed in a custom directory i put into the thunderbird directory (to make it portable). and if i try to make a profile it blanks it all out - settings, structure etc. even if i copied the old files into a new directory and focused the new profile with the old files in it.

and now i'm starting to confuse myself.


basically i think what i need is - the ability to create a profile of my current settings, so i can give that to the browsers. i don't remember having this issue with waterfox. but i'm using something else now. is there a way to do this? take what i have, that isn't in an official profile, and just put it into a profile?

thanks.

Firefox Nightly cannot be found in the 'Software' store, so probably the only way to download it is by going to the website and getting a tar.bz2 file. I got that, extrated it and placed it in the/opt folder, made an application shortcut, added an icon, and now it's working like a normal app. The problem arises when it tries to auto-update. Firefox Nightly updates very frequently, sometimes more than once per day, and on windows, I used to get a notification saying that a new update is released, and if i wanted to install it. Clicking yes, Firefox would update and restart within moments, and restore all my tabs and windows seamlessly. Here on Linux, I have to manually download the new tar.bz2 file, extract it, replace it in the specified folder, and launch Firefox Nightly again, and again and again usually once per every alternate day, whenever the new update comes. Is there a solution for this? Will Firefox someday release a .deb file for easy installation and updates? My PC : Dell Optiplex 3070 OS : Zorin OS 16 Core (based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS)

Hi

I recently downloaded Firefox from the main download page https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/ The actual download link was: https://cdn.stubdownloader.services.mozilla.com/builds/firefox-stub/en-US/win/aeb02dfeae750c7fa2abe9c7bc07b48193110ac61e2169456253638270735d21/Firefox%20Installer.exe

I normally check my downloads using https://virusscan.jotti.org or https://virustotal.com before I run them with admin privileges. Anyway when I uploaded to http://www.virustotal.com the first thing I noticed was that it had never seen the hash before! (SHA1 hash is 3a974b7394597de41230f7517c293e4b6386eeab.) Once it was uploaded, it was promptly detected by the Cylance antivirus engine.

Can somebody please get in touch with Cylance? I suppose I could contact them myself; however, I prefer not to report it as a "false positive" on the off-chance that particular download actually is corrupted or I got a man in the middle- after all, it's surprising that VirusTotal has never seen this hash before.

Hi,

I'm trying to download xilinx vivado design suite and cannot. The download fails for both Chrome and Firefox and the web installer fails as well. I've tried using a single file download, removing myself from my family's account and also tried using a download manager. I also deleted

This issue has been happening for about half a year now- I've been able to finish downloads by simply retrying them, but I've never tried to download a file this large (the single file download is roughly 60 GB and I would rather solve this issue than retry the download for a 60gb file).

Any ideas or suggestions why my downloads keep failing? Is this maybe an issue with my ISP?

I have used Startpage with Firefox for quite awhile, with Windows 10. I recently deleted Startpage from my computer, and due to some computer issues, I uninstalled Firefox. When I tried to reinstall Firefox, directly thru Mozilla, it automatically opened up as StartPage. I can't access any Firefox tools to use to get rid of StartPage, as I want to switch to DuckDuck Go as the search engine. I have been trying this for 2 hours and can't find any way to download Firefox without it automatically opening as Start Page. HELP!

First: I delay the weekly useless downloads as long as possible. Everytime I have to download you change things for the worse, and I spend sometimes even hours, like now, trying to get my things back to what they were. I do a lot of research and do not have time to continually have to go back and undo all of the changes to my very carefull set up toolbars at the top. Can I opt out of this madness except for the most truly vital downloads? Secondly: After the latest download, I find a star symbol for bookmarks between my already too short search bar and my address bar. I use that space to lengthen my search bar a little as it does not allow a lot of length. I wish there was a separate place for a long search bar as it never is long enough to make my searches fully visible. I already had 4 symbols for bookmarks in my top toolbars. I don't need a damn star preventing space between the search and address bars. And when I need to clic on one of those bars, the star thing activates and I get bookmarks instead of the address bar, etc. What is the point of these useless changes??? I went to the menu: it had 'customize tool bar' as one of the first options. Now you have to hunt around for it. After wasting time, I found it: you have to go all the way to the bottom of the options where you'll find tools; then click on the forward arrow beside it and that takes you to the customize toolbar menu. But when that comes up the page changes and the star symbol disappears. I have tried to drag the star symbol to some other places but it won't budge. Does anyone know how I can get it off my toolbar? If not, is it ok for me to go back to my former version of ff, and how do I do that? Thank you. Sorry for the rant, but this happens everytime and they never used to have updates all the time like they do now. Everyone I know is aggravated about this..

Hi, I upgrade Firefox to 89.0.2 from the previous version. The installer "locked-up" during the installation process. I am using Win 7 on a Dell Inspiron 64-bit laptop (2017) with plenty of memory. Never had problems before. The installer locks and I have to stop it via Windows Task Manager (setup.exe *32). I have reloaded the "Firefox Setup 89.0.2.exe" file several times, reloaded the previous version... no avail. It locks up. I tried to start the Firefox even if not fully installed, using Firefox.exe It stated that it did not close properly and to "refresh", which I did, the program browser started after saying "success", but then stopped responding (screen locked-up) while showing me the usual Firefox screen (i.e. with all my previous opened tabs, bookmarks...) After having deleted the program manually from its location, reloading it several times - the same issues took place. Can someone help, me? Thank you, Ciao, L

I received an alert about a virus from Firefox. This would have been on Sunday 7/4. I figured it was some sort of a scam and don't remember what exactly I clicked, but it was something to the affect that I did not want it to do whatever it was that it wanted to remove the virus. I uninstalled FireFox and have tried reinstalling it numerous times and it will not launch/open at all, it will "bounce" once and sit in the dock. I have a MacBook running iOS Big Sur. Any help provided needs to be very specific in steps and instructions so I may understand what I need to do to rectify the situation. I need my FireFox back.
