incorrect checksums of downloaded Firefox

Every time I download a new release of Firefox (win64 german), I check the downloaded file at virustotal and check the hashes published under http://releases.mozilla.org/… (læs mere)

Every time I download a new release of Firefox (win64 german), I check the downloaded file at virustotal and check the hashes published under http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/<Version>, e.g. http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.0.1/SHA256SUMS Up until release 77.0 the hashes matched but for 77.0.1 and also the current release 78.0.1 the hashes do not match, neither SHA256 nor SHA512. For "win64/de/Firefox Setup 78.0.1.exe" the SHA256 hash should be 56cff68e3f0cb76a6404d675f7e1bacc40ebaba7bbb5cadcb4950378656ab0a6 but the calculated hash is 8e69755f257aba44b6bbe5079e17f3bff8b62ddc27de9e1c479686e9ad871dfb When checking at virustotal, the file is recognized as scanned before and the displayed hash is the one I calculated, so at least my downloaded file is equal to the file other persons downloaded. Could it be that since v77.0.1 the published hashes are incorrect?

I run Firefox on a number of systems and two of my work computers seem to be unable to check in with the Firefox update servers to get updates. See image for the exact error message.

"Firefox can't update to the latest version. Download a fresh copy of Firefox and we'll help you to install it."

My suspicion is my network team is blocking my browsers from getting to the Firefox update servers but I don't know how to test it. One of my browsers is 77.0, the other is 77.0.1. Both of them give me the error in the image. Both of them insist I'm on the latest version of Firefox when I use 'Help/About Firefox' to check.

If anyone knows what data I should collect to get this figured out I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

Tried to download and install the Firefox browser, 64 bit. While processing, said "cannot continue, cannot find VCRUNTIME140_1.dll. I know that I did remove the Visual C re-distributable file or from the windows system but have been trying to re-install. Downloaded and executed visual c, to no effect, did not re-install the driver or whatever Firefox is looking for during the install. At a total loss on how to re-instate the VCRUNTIME140_1.DLL so that I can use Firefox, HELP!!! P.S. the help provided on-line tells one how to re-install the driver but so "poluted" with other programs wanting you to download their programs that impossible to find the correct tools to use. Anyway, your help will be appreciated. I do like Firefox and have been enticed to use Microsoft Ecge but do not want to if I can help!

What are the best ways to copy existing settings to a new profile?

Hi,

I've encountered my fair share of bugs. I'm also disabled, so I need a lot of safety and accessibility fixes to use any browser.

Debugging advice often involves ""safe" mode," which disables some safety and accessibility tools, or "refresh Firefox," or otherwise using new profiles, which require me to set up the safety and accessibility tools before I can do anything. (For example, by default Firefox uses blinking cursors, autoscroll, and smooth scrolling, all of which trigger my migraines.)

In the past I've sometimes copied specific items, or cleared out a new profile folder and copied everything from an already-set-up profile folder.

Are there better or worse ways to copy bookmarks, saved passwords, about:config settings, user css, add-ons, and add-on settings?

(The previous time I asked this, I somehow got diverted to the wrong forum.)

I need to install Firefox NEW on an XP laptop. I need the (newest) old version that will install on the XP downloaded to THIS (Windows 10) computer and "Sneaker-netted" to the XP. Then I presume I will be able to download the NEWEST version that will run under XP and do the upgrade. What I received was indistinguishable from the most current version, when I tried to get 43.0.1. Help?

I need to be able to save downloads to different selected locations. For example: to the Desktop or to a file called "Invoices". I have selected the option within "General" that requires that I be asked where to save, but neither "Invoices" nor Desktop appear as an option when the list appears. I have created a file called "Invoices", but do not know why it is not appearing as a choice. Desktop is also not a choice.

Due to runing Windows 7 and Microsoft no longer supporting this, I purchased a new Laptop, this came with windows 10 s installed, although I can switch to Windows 10, apparently it is not recommended and switching back would be impossible, but with Windows 10 s installed, you can not load Firefox or bookmarks, as Firefox has not been approved by Windows. If anyone can give any information or advice, it would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hi,

I have a new computer and installed Firefox as my web browser. I have also Firefox on my old computer and could by signing in to my Firefox accounts get all my settings and bookmarks in the Firefox on the new computer. On my old computer after opening Firefox there is a bar at the top with from left to right, File, Edit, History, Bookmarks, Tools, and Help. After opening Firefox on my new computer, that bar is not there. Can you please tell me how to get that bar also on my new computer in Firefox.

Thanks, Bert Schmitz

Microsoft will not let me use Opera without having to reinstall it every time Windows updates. I've been using Opera for 4 years and all my data and bookmarks are there. Firefox does not give the option to import from OPERA!!! "Other browsers" never includes Opera. Help? Anyone know how to import from the browser I've been using for years?
