I realize that you all don't support the older version. Yet it's also the case that Apple won't update this El Capitan on my 2008 model (terrible, a crying shame, I know).

I've also tried to install your Extended Support Release. Will that work? I'm an independent research scholar, not currently associated with either Oxford or Stanford.

So I really need to have your Firefox back — I had it until this morning, when I needed to trash it (b/c of a bug), and then re-install. Yet I've not been able to re-install so far.

Hence, I'm seeking your help!

Thank you, Davy

Installing root CA certificates

I'm stetting up a testing environment. It's a closed environment with no access to the Internet when it's in use.

The environment is launched from AWS and consists of an Ubuntu 18 desktop and a Ubuntu Server running Apache. The desktop is able to successfully load the website, but with a cert error that the certificate isn't trusted.

When the Ubuntu Desktop launches, it has a fresh install of Firefox, and therefore all the directories in the users home folder are not yet setup for Firefox, including the database where the root CAs are stored.

I'm am able to add the Root CA certificate into the Firefox cert database AFTER the machine fully boots and I run Firefox for the first time. I'm using the 'certutil' package to do this. After I load Firefox, then add the root CA certificate using certutil, I'm able to load the website without error.

I need to add this certificate to the database with the startup shell script for the machine.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Here's the commands I'm using:

  1. copy the CA cert into firefox

export ffcerts=`ls /home/testuser/.mozilla/firefox/ | grep default-release` sudo certutil -A -n "testcert" -t "TC,," -i /home/testuser/certificates/testcertCA.pem -d sql:/home/testuser/.mozilla/firefox/$ffcerts

These commands work perfectly after Firefox is run for the first time. I've even tried adding 'Firefox' (with several different switches) into my startup script without success.

52.9.0esr is claimed to be the last version for XP. Unfortunately it is not quite true. It is for XP SP2 ONLY. Trying to install on SP3 ends with the message that SP2 is required. IMO the installer is simply too strict on demanding exact version of SP ! https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/52.9.0/system-requirements/

I went through the list of versions (thanks Mozilla that they all are still available!) and found that the last version I can install is... version... 12.0b6. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/12.0/system-requirements/

And indeed I installed 12.0b6 successfully but I would like to install 52.9.

Starting today, I went to download a .pdf file to open automatically with Adobe Acrobat as I usually do. However, this time I got a pop-up from Microsoft Word stating, "Word will now convert your PDF to an editable Word document. This may take a while. The resulting Word document will be optimized to allow you to edit the text, so it might not look exactly like the original PDF, especially if the original file contained lots of graphics."

I went to Settings - General - Applications, went down Contents list to Portable Document Format (PDF), and tried the various settings under the Action column, to include "Save File," "Always Ask," "Use Acrobat Adobe 2020." None of these worked or made any difference. I open numerous .pdf files every day and I need to be able to just click on them in the website and have them open in my Adobe Acrobat program - as they have up until today. What do I have to do to fix this? I am using Version 102.0.1 (64-bit).

I'm buying a new computer and I'm wondering is there a method/procedure that I can use to transfer the entire FF browser including settings, extensions, bookmarks, and passwords without having to reinstall all those items individually? I know I can save and import bookmarks but what about everything else? I look forward to anyone comments. Thanks

Dear community,

As I use a few self-made unsigned add-ons, for several years now I have been using the Firefox unbranded builds on Linux with great joy. In the past these became available for download shortly after a regular Firefox was released. Lately though things have changed. The current latest release for unbranded is stalling at version 107. So it's getting further and further away from the official Firefox, which is at 109 at the time of writing.

Obviously I'm concerned my unbranded Firefox is not getting the same security updates any longer. I do realize there's alternatives for supporting unsigned add-ons. Running a Firefox nightly or developer-edition is something I'd want to avoid, so for me these aren't real alternatives. I've also tried tracking unbranded info on bugzilla.mozilla.org, but couldn't find anything relating to this 'lag'.

Where can I find more info on this topic? Are these unbranded builds being discontinuated?

Thanks for reading, keep well!

Every time I come across a file and click the link to either open or save the file, Firefox just downloads the file -- THEN it asks me if I want to open it or save it..? It's bugged and an obscene security threat if the browser is so easily willing to download files against my intention.

Before I'm asked, I have gone through the settings multiple times to ensure 'Always ask you where to save files' and 'Ask whether to open or save files" are checked. Behavior does not change according to settings.

Example 1. Click link for a PDF with the intention to open, read, and forget 2. Firefox automatically downloads the file to my download folder 3. Firefox prompts me if I want to save the file or open it

If I click 'open', the file stays in the saved location even though I don't want it to exist.

I've always used the "Always ask you where to save files" option when downloading. Recently (beginning of April 2022), files go directly to the Downloads folder. The "Always ask" option is still selected in Settings.

I've tried un-selecting and re-selecting, restarting Firefox, restarting my computer - basically every iteration of 'turn it off and on again' that I can think of.

Hi there.

This is my first post so bare with me.  :-)

We are deploying the 32-bit version of the Firefox Browser to 4 700 clients and the 64-bit version to only 8 clients; all clients on a 64-bit Windows 10 environment. We will migrate to Windows 11 22H2 this year. The manager for the 8 clients says he wants the 64-bits version just because it's...64-bits. No other reason.

I've read that the 64-bit version can not handle Java, Media Players like VLC and mayby some other plugins. Is that still so?

What is the main reason TODAY for using 64-bit Firefox Browser instead of 32-bit, except for the use of 4 GB+ RAM?

Why has this started up again? Pdf files are automatically downloading to my computer when all I want to do is look at the file. So many files that now need to be trashed after looking at them. This problem has happened in the past, but was resolved, only now I am finding it happen again. I do not want to have files saved unless I want to save them, not Firefox deciding that any file I open should be saved. I have Windows 11 & Firefox Version 113.0.1. Is there a way to revert to an older version of Firefox?

I'm trying to move to Firefox from Microsoft Edge on Linux. When I go to import data from another browser Edge is not an option. I have a CSV file that I exported from Edge. How can I import this CSV file? I found something on reddit that said to change security.allow_eval_in_parent_process to true, but that no longer works. How can I get my passwords imported without having to install another browser and import to that and then import to firefox?

How do I uninstall the Firefox icon from the taskbar? The standard article on the Firefox Support website is `How to pin and unpin Firefox from the taskbar on Windows 10 and Windows 11', but it seems to be out of date. It says to right-click on the icon and click on `Unpin from taskbar', but there is no such item in the right-click menu any more.

I know that it became difficult to unpin the Firefox icon about a year ago. I got a new PC recently and installed Firefox, but I could not remove the icon. Then realised that I should have done this during installation, by using 'Custom installation' and unticking the 'Icon on taskbar' option. I searched the web for clues and found none, so I uninstalled and reinstalled, which was a nuisance.

Some months later, I have just installed the new version 110.0.1, but I forgot to use 'Custom install', with the result that the icon is back on the taskbar. Again I have searched the web, and again no success. I tried reinstalling V110.0.1 on top, using 'custom install' this time --- I could switch off the 'Icon on taskbar', but the icon is still there.

I don't want to uninstall-reinstall this time because I have now configured Firefox as I want it, so that would waste a lot of time --- and I will probably forget again sometime in the future.

I am sure that Firefox has not done this deliberately, because they are always so much on the user's side.

QUESTION: How do I unpin the Firefox icon from the taskbar without uninstalling? I have an idea that there is a registry hack that will achieve this.

Hi. I was suddenly having unexpected problems to log in in a site (https://www.lanacion.com.ar/). So I updated FF but the problem persists. Then, I uninstalled FF, downloaded it again from the repository and installed again, but the problem persists. Then, I downloaded directly rom the Mozilla site, expand it in the desktop and double click the program icon. The program opened and I was able to log into the site I was trying to. Interesting enough, the browser opens a lot faster than when installed. My question is: everywhere on the web the response is "you have to install the program" or "the program is already installed in your distro", which is true in my case, but one day stopped to work properly. BUT I'm not installing it, and it works apparently well... ¿how can it be? Thanks in advance for your reply. -Enrique.

I am currently running Firefox on High Sierra 10.13.6 and have been advised that that OS will soon no longer be supported. I did have an option to do an update to ESR 115.1 in my Firefox app, however I was not home for a few days and when I returned planning to do the update it was no longer available. Now it just says my Firefox is up to date with 115.0.2... how can I get the update to the ESR 115.1? Thanks!

Hi. I'm trying to download an installer .msi file from a valid link. If I do this in Chrome it simply pops it into the Downloads folder as it should. In Firefox, it downloads and then displays as a text page of garbage. It seems the file is wrongly defined as text/plain on the server rather than as a binary.

However, I've looked into my Firefox settings to see if I can define the handling behaviour of that file type. I can't! Amazingly to me, the .msi file type can not be added to the list manually. There is no "Add File Type" functionality in there. It seems as though I have to handle the file in Firefox for it to see that that type exists and then it will let me add it to the Downloads/Applications area of settings.

I can right click on the link and choose Save File As which gets round it, but then I still cannot see the .msi file type to add it to the Applications list. Can anyone tell me what I am missing here?

Hello. I use developer's version of ff for a few weeks (currently on 107.0b2). I recently decided to switch back to stable version 106. However, when I run it it says

``` Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox. ```

So, how do I move from developer's version back to stable without losing anything?

(OS: debian 11, if it matters)
