Win 10/FF I reinstalled FF after automatically downloading 73.0 and I had a terrible day on computer yesterday. SLOW. It was fine today, for some reason, so there are no issues I can detect. Because I have an old laptop, should I download the 32-bit version? I spent a lot of time restoring FF, even though I thought everything would rollover. Can I do the change w/o reinstalling everything???

Thank you.

If you remove the Firefox folder, the user profiles would not be affected.

CiaoBella1 said

I always uninstall FF before reinstalling.
Must I always uninstall first?

When you run the installer, it should overwrite what is in the program folder. On rare occasions, this causes problems, so we have the user do a full, clean reinstall. Meaning all program folders are manually removed.

Note: Firefox comes in three or more folders on all computers. They are;

Maintenance: (Programs Folder) <Windows Only> Firefox itself: (Programs Folder) And two folders in the profile of each user on the computer for each Firefox profile for that user.

If you remove the Firefox folder, the user profiles would not be affected.

Okay.

In your comment, 'If you remove the Firefox folder, the user profiles would not be affected.' I thought you were telling me to remove the folder.

Two question: what is the difference between MSI and not version? Okay - MSI is the installer...


I always uninstall FF before reinstalling. Must I always uninstall first? Do I now?

Thank you.

It won't install on top - the program keeps closing.

So if I uninstall and reinstall, do I have to reload everything? (Either I prepare this time or I don't.)

Thank you.

The profile is separate and should not be affected. The new install should be able to find it.

I found the version in CP. After installing it, I was momentarily terrified. Figured I would deal with it in the morning.

Ahh! Great relief, and without breaking a sweat or having to create and sync FF accounts. All is well with profile. Unsure about behavior, yet.

Thank you very much!
