This one thing makes we simply switch to a different browser. Firefox, downloads and installs updates in the background. OK. It needs a browser restart to be able to setup the update. Not great but OK. But suddenly it would completely disable the user from not using the browser until an update is performed (See Image). But why? Not OK!

I am totally fine with the browser needing a restart to finish update. But why wouldn't Firefox not let me decide when I want that. Until I am ready let me use the browser. I really wish they don't freeze the browser like that.

Is there someone looking to address this issue in a future version? Is this only happening to me?

I manage hundreds computers. Many of which are not tied to a specific user (think, library, or school). I recently noticed that many of them are behind a version for firefox (as of writing this, firefox is as 73, and the computer labs are at 72). we do not enforce a policy through GPO or policy.jason. we do no use ESR release. but even with the ESR release. I am seeing the same issue. I could not find any significant detail on the nature of the automatic update process for firefox (how it runs, when it runs, how to tell if it ran or not, logs, etc.. ). I also cannot find anyway I can kick it off programmatically. It seems that it needs to be done while a user is logged in. For me, I need this to update without the user. Can I initiate a update in the background ? can I configure when the update kicks off? where can I look to see logs of when this happens?

I used a RAM disk program (not sure of the name) for the 30 day trial but was not interested in buying it. So I uninstalled the program. Afterwards, Firefox would not even start.

I'm pretty sure the RAM disk was storing some of Firefox's setting files. But even though the RAM disk is gone, I THINK Firefox is still looking for those files where the RAM disk stored them. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox but it still won't start.

Thanks,

Steve

I am very disappointed by your all new browser. Why could you not have kept the look and feel.of the old one? Why is there no "downloads" tab in the menu. This use to be one of the key things that interested me in Firefox. I am quite honestly not even interested in using your browser anymore. I have spent some time downloading other browsers today.

Ok so this really has me pulling my hair out. My old laptop died the other day and so I bought a new one and put my old drive in an enclosure. I had my Firefox heavily customised (over the past eight years) and I don't know how to transfer it over. It used to be that I would just copy the users over and everything would be cool (XP to W7 didn't give me this problem) but it's not working this time. My guess is that it's because my old laptop used Windows 7 Ultimate x64. My desktop monster uses Windows 10 Pro but this new laptop uses Windows 10 Home (which is just awful compared to Pro) so there's probably an issue with how the user profiles are handled. I didn't have a Firefox account because I didn't want every machine I use to have the same Firefox setup. This was because my desktop and laptop are used for different purposes entirely.

Does anyone know how to import the settings from a Windows 7 profile to a Windows 10 profile? So far, I've had no luck whatsoever. Thanks!

Update to the most recent Firefox Browser Version unsuccessful. 'Automatic update' option is active, but I receive a failure message like "... could not be updated to the newest version". I'm stuck at version 69 or so. Manual update equally unsuccessful - I tried the commonly known tips already. Windows 8 PC, active user profile is not 'administrator' (this was not a problem in the past). P.S.: I'm sending thsi message from a different PC (... wher updating Firefox no problem) - so educated guesses below may be misleading

Firefox on Debian Linux (Ubuntu 20.04 LTS): Cannot import data from Chromium Browser

Hi! I'm currently running Firefox on Ubuntu. Since, 90% of my saved passwords were done on Chrome browser on my smartphone, I wish to import it to Firefox. To do so, I downloaded Chromium browser and logged in with my Google account so my saved passwords could be synced to it. Now, when I run the import wizard on Firefox, I get the message No program that contain bookmarks, history or password data could be found. This basically means that either Firefox's import wizard cannot find Chromium on Linux or Chromium isn't supported. It could also mean a technical issue I'm not aware of.

Kindly assist. Thanks!

Starting yesterday, I can no longer download .pdf datasheets from the regular firms that I have been dealing with. When I click on the datasheet link, the page that I was on is returned, instead of the datasheet. I am using Windoz 7. Is this caused by changes in Firefox? Can this be fixed?

Thank you for your assistance in this matter. Johnski

I've been using Google Chrome forever, but I've had Firefox for a while installed on my computer and used it off and on for other users, etc... I finally had enough of Chrome, so I decided to switch to Firefox, it's not going very well, in fact I'm about to give up on that idea, unless I get some help! Even after I removed/re-installed and wiped the appdata stuff, still what the Mozilla help articles say, DO NOT show up in my browser. Two articles, neither agree w/what I see, or can do. NO such thing as "see all bookmarks", no such thing of Firefox telling me let migrate.... I CANNOT migrate my bookmarks from Google Chrome to Firefox. So, if ANYONE can offer some help, I'd like very much to switch! Thank you in advance for your help. Goodnight & I'll check tomorrow! PS: I even have the xml file of all my bookmarks from Chrome.

Just installed the update to v79 (64 bit) on Win 10 v2004 (64 bit). I when Firefox reopened, I went to YouTube to watch a video and play would not work. You get the "thumbnail" pic of video and then the screen goes black and an error message appears saying the video cannot be played. I turned off the Hardware Accelerator, rebooted, same issue. Restarted in Safe Mode, same issue. Updated all Plug-Ins and Extensions, same problem. I can play YouTube videos in Chrome and Edge without issues.

I can log in but when I want to start a movie or play some music it says that Firefox is installing components to play sound and video - but nothing happens. I have been using Firefox for many years and the programs have always worked - until yesterday after I installed the new version. I'm on a PC using windows. Any tips on how to proceed?

I recently transitioned from windows 10 to elementary os. My preferred download option is to ask me where to save each file. And so when I download something, the file manager opens. BUT when I hover my mouse over the navigation bar (to quickly get out of nested windows or make a new folder), the file manager automatically closes.

what gives? this does not happen in chrome.
