My older mac was on the fritz and just got it back from repair. It was rest to an older version of Firefox so I've downloaded latest version but when I try to install it says 'Unable to Update' ' A recommended security and stability update is available but you do not have the system permissions required to install it. Please contact your systems admin, or try again from the account that has permission to install software on this computer'.

What do I need to change in my settings?

thank you!

I had to restore my operating system. I was able to recover places.sqlite to restore bookmarks (good!). I was able to find a key3.db (dated July 2013) that file won't be complete or up to date, but at least it puts me somewhere ahead.

I read that I need a signon3.txt file to go with the key3. I don't have one. I did find a signons.sqlite file dated Sept 2014. I moved both these files to my profiles folder but I don't get my old passwords back.

Is it possible for me to use the old key3? Do the key3 and signons have to be dated the same? Is there a way to recreate the signons.txt?

I do have the master password.

Thanks for help.

Hi I can't open some https websites like https://openssl.org/ I get this error message:

Secure Connection Failed

The connection to openssl.org was interrupted while the page was loading.

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

This only happens on my default profile and other profiles are OK. I started firefox in safe mode (Add-ons disabled) and the problem still exist. I'm using firefox 39.0.3 on windows 7 and I don't want to update to a newer version.

i have Pentium d 925 3ghz dual core, GeForce 210, Windows 10 Pro, and a good internet connection. Recently i started to lag really hard on youtube videos, playing at 720. I always watched videos in 720pp, on windows xp, vista, 7 ultimate, and even after the upgrade, i didn't had any lag. Now i lag like hell, after the first 3 seconds the cpu goes insane, firefox is consuming 95% of cpu power. I had to downgrade to firefox 39 and install html5 disablers just to watch a video... here is some info about my firefox: Application Basics

I have Ubuntu 10.1 and want to install a new version of Firefox. I have downloaded the tar bz2 file from their website. I have it in my Downloads folder along with an extracted file folder Firefox. I guess I can remove the old version in Terminal with: sudo apt-get remove firefox. My question is, what Terminal command string do I use to install the new tar file? I guess it will have to point to the extracted folder or the tar file in my download folder.

I can run the new Firefox from the download firefox folder but it will not save any of my bookmarks when closed.

btw none of the older links work for install.

Firefox was too large for my monitor screen. So, I typed about:config in the address bar. Then I went to layout.css.devPixelsPerPx. I then made the terrible mistake of putting 2.0 in the box and the text went so small I can't do a thing in Firefox. I can't see anything on the screen even with a magnify glass. I am using my laptop right now. The problem is on my desktop. Vista Home premium 32 bit. I just downloaded Firefox yesterday. I did have Chrome on. They stopped supporting Vista so I thought I would use Mozilla. Remember, I can't see anything on the screen to be able to fix it. Help ,someone please!!

I have many bookmark folders. I'd like a way to easily and quickly add the current page to one of those folders.

I use the Add Bookmark Here 2 extension, but I find that adding bookmarks to deeply nested folders is frustrating, because if you accidentally mouse out of the menu or sub-menu, the entire thing closes.

What I would like is to press a hotkey and to be presented with a text box where I can enter a portion of the folder's name, which will show auto-complete options, and then I can select one of those folders and have the bookmark immediately added there.

Does such an extension exist?

After enabling tracking protection in the current beta (39), via about:config, I tried loading a target.com search page, and only half the graphics for their products load. This happened with two different searches. Disabling tracking protection, then reloading the page showed all the graphics.

Is there a place to report bugs (if in fact this is a bug, and not a problem with target) for this tracking protection feature? Or should I just go to bugzilla?
