Running v68.4.1 esr. Have set app.update.auto to false (interesting this pref shows twice in about:config). Have removed the update URL Firefox is still trying to update. Many updates break something, so I want to manage the 10 PCs on Firefox on my schedule. I test all updates and resolve any issues before I roll out updates - the whole point of an ESR release. What am I missing?

Now that an update has been detected, once I block update, how do I get rid of the notification? If I back up my profile folder, uninstall and reinstall Firefox, then copy back my profile is it simply going to put it back to the state it's in now... wanting to update?

I'm trying to do a clean install of Firefox to return to 100% default settings. I don't want any of my old data, bookmarks, cookies, or browsing history, but every time I uninstall and reinstall Firefox, all of my previous bookmarks along with my browsing history are imported into Firefox.

How do I do an actual clean install, that allows me to start over without importing any previous data?

  • edit

I've also deleted my Firefox account and opened a new one multiple times, which I would assume would delete my old data. But even after deleting my account my old data is still imported to Firefox after uninstalling and re-installing it.

I had to reinstall win 7 on a new HD. Before I removed the old HD I copied my entire firefox profile. I then re-named it to my 'new' firefox profile - in hopes that everything would transfer. My bookmarks are there, but my passwords are not. Although the files key4.db and logins.json are both present in the new profile - they do not contain my old passwords. file size is also the same - very odd. I have access to all data on my old HD - how do I recover/transfer all my old passwords - there are >150 of them - I'm not going to type them all in

thanks so much

I found the directory with all the older versions of FF. but how do I download an executable file? I did a recent new install of FF on a new HD and now my passwords are gone - despite restoring the backup files. the new FF I downloaded uses lockwise; while my older version did not. I am hoping if I download and reinstall a slightly older version of FF - where I can restore my passwords and history and bookmarks and it actually Works - then if I update FF - all my 'stuff' will carry with the newer version.

Unless you have another idea of how to get my old FF back! yes I made a backup of my old profile.

thanks

I used profile manager and copied my profile (C drive) to a different directory (D). Profile even has same name. And is same size. Yet all bookmarks and add ons are gone. They remain in original C drive profile and that works fine if I default to it. But if I make the D Drive profile the default it looks like a new profile with no existing bookmarks/add ons. Why doesn't this data move across to?

DuckDuckGo has bad habit of every now and then asking me to Download privacy essentials again. It's a big ugly add. Couldn't stand to see it. So I uninstalled DuckDuckGo as search engine. Selected Bing as search engine. Shut down my computer. Restarted. And DuckDuckGo still appears as search engine, even though in Options/Search I have clicked Bing as my search engine. How do I get rid of DuckDuckGo once and for all?

Firefox initially popped open a window stating that I already had another copy open and so wouldn't open. After some investigating, I found a fix and followed the steps to delete profiles - possibly the cause of the errors. (I had applied this solution once months ago and it had worked then.) Subsequent to this attempt, I was unable to open Firefox - even with the creation of new profile(s). Given the situation, I deleted Firefox entirely by dragging into Trash and emptying the trash and re-logging in. Downloaded a clean new install from the Mozilla website. Although the DMG file downloaded fine, when I attempt to copy app to Applications folder, the system hangs. So now there is no way to re-install Firefox?!

This link /post seems to reflect my condition: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1240427 However at the given location on my computer, I only had a FB video plugin - even after i deleted that, there is no change, i.e. remain unable to implement a fresh new install of Firefox.

Suggestions? Thanks! RT12

p.s. Using a different computer to post this. When I get a chance, I'll go back to the one with this issue and see if I can post the "troubleshooting information".

I read the recommended articles for this problem on the Firefox website and deleted the files: Delete the following files: extensions.sqlite , extensions.sqlite-journal , extensions.ini , extensions.json and Restarted Firefox. That didn't work. I also turned everything in Bitdefender off and tried to install the update, but that didn't work either. The Notice says: Firefox update Important Firefox update available. Click "Install" to continue. Program firefox.exe Verified Publisher: Flash Player Necessary measures: Now click on “Continue to Installation ” and then on “Add” to complete the process. See attached screeshot When I click on Install a window comes up that says: "Allow newsoftware-update.com to install an add-on?" When I click on "Continue to Installation" the window that says "The add-on could not be downloaded because of a connection failure" appears. See attached screenshot. So far I have not been able to get past that. Please help. Thanks

duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1278992

New update has completely ruined my browsing. Completely changed everything and removed all my saved data, a lot of links to websites, saved passwords and everything else just gone after an update I didn’t accept or get asked for. How the hell do I get my old information back. I don’t even know if my account was through this accounts email or not. It’s really pissed me off

Usually when i clicked on pdf files, they would open in a new tab where i could view them. More recently, it would always ask what to do with the pdf file. Today when i clicked on a pdf file, it asked me again, but when i clicked to open with firefox it just started to open 90+ new blank tabs, untill i forcefully shut down firefox. Up untill today i didn't change the my firefox options, but it just started changing the way it reacts with pdf files. Today i tried changing the files and aplications options to preview in firefox (i read in some firefox articles that this option was suposed to be the one i used to have), but it would still ask what to do with the file, but when i clicked to open in firefox, it would also download. I then changed to open with firefox in the options, but it would just open 90+ new blank tabs. If i tried to always ask (which i find very annoying, considering i spent +1 year without it always asking), it would also download even if i specified not to download but instead open in firefox. When all failed i tried to reset all firefox options, but thje same problems still happened, after that i updated firefox (something i did for the first time), but still the same.

Firefox did an automatic update and totalled my old Firefox, or so I thought. I deleted Old Firefox. I downloaded new Firefox. Old Firefox reappeared with bookmarks, but New Firefox also appeared without bookmarks. I am completely mystified as to what I should do. Delete new Firefox and continue to use old Firefox? Or is there some way to install new Firefox and keep my old bookmarks on which I rely? I find this unfortunate migration disturbing and am wondering what went wrong and what else is wrong with new Firefox and the migration process. Thanks to anyone who can help me on this.

Every morning, when I first turn on my computer, I a have to spend the first 5 minutes setting up my Firefox again because of a "new profile". I have to re-enable all of my add-ons and configure them as well. Why does this happen every single day and is there a way to prevent it? If not, then I'm done with this browser...such a colossal waste of time for something that I shouldn't have to do. I don't have to completely set up Chrome or Edge if they do an update...all of the pertinent stuff is brought forward.
