why does firefox keep downgrading

I upgraded to v 47.0.2. Verified that I was now on the correct version. Later, It says that there is an update available, and it is v 47.0.2. I check and I'm on v 45.0.1.

This has happened a few times now. At first I thought, I thought I did that, must have been confused. Then, must have been on the other machine.

Now, I'm very sure that I was on v 47.0.2 yesterday. Today It says I'm on v 45.0.1 again. This time it was immediately after FF crashed. I can't verify that was true the other times.

I want to return to version 28. Version 29's interface is hideous. I installed the add-on which supposedly makes it look like version 28, but it doesn't.

I have downloaded version 28. All I need to know is: Do I uninstall version 29 before installing version 28, or can I install version 28 over version 29 without uninstalling it first? I want to keep all my bookmarks.

I have already turned off automatic updates.

For the last few days my Firefox does not display the downloads window. I have tried to follow the suggestion set out in Firefox Help ie Tools --> Options --> General

Any suggestions on how I can get to --> Downloads the option to check the box "Show the Downloads window when downloading a file".

Thank you in anticipation

After updating to 61.0 (64 bit) my Home Content options disappeared, leaving a blank page when opening new tabs. From research, I see there should be a Firefox Home Content section in about:preferences#home . Mine has no Firefox Home Content options listed, just options for New Windows and Tabs (see screenshot). I have tried disabling all addons and closing/reopening Firefox but it made no difference.

How do I get my Home Content options back?

I would like to be able to have web search in the home page (not the address bar) and my top sites pinnable there, like it was before the 61.0 update, instead of the blank home page I am now seeing when opening new tabs.

I have had this issue since version 43. I am now running version 46.01 on a Mac OS Yosemite and when I reinstall version 46.01 after a few days I get a message that a a newer version already exists. Firefox reports 46.01 and at the time of this comment June-3-2016 there is no newer version. If I reinstall say the next day I don't get the newer version message.

What is changing in Firefox that makes reinstalling the same version believe it is installing over a newer version?

There are several posts on this site regarding uninstalling Firefox. I am running current Firefox on current W10 64bit 1903 desktop PC using Ethernet with Spectrum as my ISP. I am having a couple of problems in Firefox that are not happening in current Chrome. 1. Page-not-found 2-8 times a day that resolve every time by simply clicking the "retry" (or something close to that) button. I reset my router to "factory" and installed most current router firmware but that did not help. Netgear Support has been unable to help. 2. In current LastPass addon, I have to re-login to LastPass every time I start Firefox - did not used to do that (a year ago), and in Chrome or Edge that does not happen. I have re-installed the LastPass add-on. I have upgraded Firefox many times and have cleared history/cache many times. So now I want to COMPLETELY remove Firefox, reboot, and then install Firefox from scratch. Can someone please point me to the web page that tells me how to properly remove all of Firefox so that I can re-download/install it from the beginning? I do not care about retaining my Firefox settings or other from my current Firefox install.

im not sure i can live with this. i need my original firefox back. this version is no good. how do i get the previous theme with my orange firefox button and grey top ?

im am positive that i did not say to update. it just did it on its own. now its gay blue. whats worse is there is a gradient into the gay blue. horrible and i need help to get rid of it.

it wouldve made more sense to put the icons on the left. and leave the search on the right where it belongs.

if i redownload 28, how do i stop it from updating again?

My Firefox won't update automatically anymore. Even if I check on Help --> About Firefox, it runs for a while and then it says it is updated. I have another FF installation on my work laptop, and it correctly picks up updates, this version on pc doesn't.

Please, I have already tried manually updating to the latest firefox a few weeks ago: I am now running version 42 here. Yet, today my work pc got updated to 43.0.2, and this one doesn't.

I would not like to completely remove FF in order not to loose my add-ons, could you please guide me to reinstate normal auto-update feature?

Thanks

I just noticed that I have an old (63.0.3) and a new (66.0.3) version of Firefox on my computer. I have no idea when or how this happened. Seems to work fine at the moment.

One is Mozilla Firefox 63.0.3 (x64 en-US) (170 MB). One is Mozilla Firefox 66.0.3 (x64 en-US) (175 MB). So my guess is this happened a while ago.

Both show up when I look at Apps & Features. Both are listed in Revo uninstaller.

There are two identical Firefox icons.

If I open one and check the version number in the program, it does show a different number depending on which icon I clicked to open the program. So there are definitely two versions.

They are sharing information. They open the same pages in several tabs that I had open when I closed the the program the last time.

I want to get rid of one but don't want to lose my many settings, bookmarks, etc. I don't want to risk everything by just Uninstalling the old version, unless I can be sure that it is safe.

Everything on my HP-PC is up to date.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hello, my Laptop Lenovo T420 Pentium 64Bit 4GB Ram Installed fresh Windows 10 1809 plus Firefox 64Bit. In order to use my profile I copied the Profile from my old laptop. Because I am not familiare with this process, I got problems to get the new Firefox to recognize my tranfered profile. Tried using the profilemanager to enter the new Firefox. Hit Windows-Symbol plus R to open command window, entered firefox.exe -p and got following Message:

Die Verbindung mit dem Server www.xn--p-5gn.com schlug fehl. (e.g. connection failed).

Searched entire sytem and registry, no match found. Did also check the system using program Malwarebytes. The Firefox itself is working correctly and the profile of the old Firefox has been correctly imported. I am concerned how (reproduceable) this site is called instead of the profilemanager. Regards Joe

Long time user (15-20 yrs?), I have been avoiding the "next" upgrade for several years for various reasons (hate change, fave add-ons go away, hate change, not broke-don't fix, hate change...). But I am now running into a few websites that won't permit this browser, so it may be time to move on. With heavy adblocking and tracker-blocking and my benign web browsing habits, I've not been concerned about security (never had a virus in 20 years - knock wood). It's just full functionality and slowness at this point. At this point, I see even my Classic Theme Restorer is no longer available, so I'll just have to bite the bullet on aesthetics and deal with a modern browser. However, a couple of things are unclear:

1. does 20 years of bookmark history (and remembered history) affect memory footprint. I only refer to existing bookmarks occasionally these days and may consider a full purge. Partial purge would probably be too time-consuming. Maybe even a full profile purge might be worthwhile for a true clean slate. Maybe FF has come a long way and old extensions and settings won't be necessary. I also have several about: settings that I may (or may not?) miss.

2. Are automatic updates unavoidable in newer versions? I read about "manual" but it sounded temporary.

3. The permissions on many potential add-ons I've looked at are quite unnerving... e.g many of them require full access to ALL my data (usernames and passwords!!!) and I know the function has no need for such. Who has time to investigate these fully for safety? Is there any anti-malware vetting required for add-ons to be available?

4. I know newer is generally faster, but FF has a history of growing and slowing down after upgrades. My hardware isn't getting any newer (although its more than ample for my current needs), but software tends to be developed on latest and greatest hardware. How does latest FF compare to circa V41 in memory usage?


In any case, I thought I would give the latest vesion a whirl on my old Vista laptop (which is currently at V43) and check it out before plunging in on my W7 work PC or home PC. Any answers or insight into such a big jump are much appreciated.
