Recently Firefox always has the error "failed to check for update". I have tried restarting my pc and running as admin. I am on windows 10.

I have been able to manually install the latest version by installing it over the top of my current install, how can I fix the error to be sure that my browser will auto update?

Thanks

I am not sure when exactly problem started but for few months I have problem with automatic update of firefox. It properly detects update and downloads it but when I click to restart browser and apply update (this should close browser and display update install bar) nothing happens - browser simply closes. When I launch it again and go into "about firefox" again I see spinning circle next to "installing update". Of course this update never installs. When I close it for 2nd time and go into "about firefox" it goes back to "update ready to install, click to restart" - and again, when I click it browser simply closes without restarting and installing update. I tried removing my profile, using safe mode, disabling antivirus. Issue seems to be related to firefox itself. I also tried removing mozilla maintenance service but it did not help. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this? For now only way for me to update firefox is manually download full installer from website and then it installs latest version without any problems - until next month comes and I have to update it again.

Hello,

I've set up Firefox to ask before updating, so I was taken aback by the fact that today, an update was automatically installed without Firefox asking me... (I was updated from 97.x to 98.0)

It is especially frustrating, as the mandatory "Restart" screen is broken when using several profiles, at least under Debian.

Let me know if you need more information.

Best regards,

Adonis

Support page indicated e-mail migration from Outlook had to be in Version 31.8, then allow Thunderbird to automatically update to latest version. Successfully completed migration to version 31.8, however the About Thunderbird window states that "Thunderbird is up to date" and "You are currently on the release update channel." It does not automatically update to anything.

Alternatively tried changing profile pointing, also moving Local Folders mail to profile folder for updated version 91.4.1 also installed on computer without success.

Any way to convince 31.8 to update?

Basically, a requested relaunch blanked my profile and I can't get it back.

I have a lengthy workaround that will take over an hour to fix from backups, before this incident, but I'd really like to understand what's going on. How can my add-ons, bookmarks, history, logins, etc. be gone? If I did a refresh on purpose, why would my shortcuts remain intact? And, I started by backing up my profile folder to a neutral spot, so why isn't replacing it reversing the changes?

As background: The "about:profiles/Restart With Add-ons disabled" button brings up a small button dialogue to choose "refresh" or default "open." I selected "open" because I didn't want to fix my profile and assumed I would relaunch with only add-ons disabled, so this was a potential point of screw-up. I assume selecting "refresh" would reset application defaults and make a mess exactly like I find myself in now. Shouldn't "Restart with Add-ons disabled/Open" relaunch a temporary and reversible state? Doesn't "refresh" prompt a new default profile?

Considering evidence only, it appears I did something to roast my profile before I backed it up, but that's strange and really out in the weeds, and I'm assuming I wrecked it with my current activity.

The default profile name and path are correct. My shortcut links and labels that I use for a home page are intact but with icons missing, the same appearance as if I deleted the cache; is this detail part of application settings and not profile?

Hello,

So, my company want to trash their Exchange server for Gmail accounts. Welp, OK... but Thunderbird (last version) doesn't cooperate.

I tried to add a new account with the correct information. I set the IMAP/SMTP of Google as this is an other domain, SSL connection and OAUTH2 on both servers as needed. The Google window appeared, login and password is fine, I clicked on Authorize.

But Thunderbird doesn't want to create the account because of a sudden login/password issue.

The login/password is fine, I tried it on the browser and I did succeed the OAUTH2 process so this is not the issue. The Google account states that Thunderbird is indeed authorized.

Cookies are authorized.

I tried to change the password for something more stupid.

Heck, I even recreated a new profile without changing anything. In desperation, I even tried using the standard password method after activating the Less Secure Application in the Google account.

Thunderbird still refuses to connect to this account, with the same login/password error.

I don't get it.

Does someone have a solution before I shoot this retarded bird ?

Cordialy,
