Trying to install firefox on Mac, drag it to applications folder and stuck on "preparing to copy"
Firefox was not responding so I dragged to the trash and downloaded the latest version. Followed instructions to drag it to Applications folder and it stuck on "preparing to copy to Applications." After hours I had to relaunch Finder to get rid of this window. Repeated with same result.
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/13.0.2 Safari/605.1.15
Firefox always shows "Update Ready to Install" MAC Only SOLUTION: Remove /Users/<name>/Library/Caches/Mozilla/ which contained the directory /updates/Applications/Firefox/updates/
I did that and tried to install again (drag Firefox to Applications folder) and same result: "Preparing to copy to Applications." I did not do a total uninstall of Firefox because I was hoping to recover bookmarks.
