My company has x32 and x64 machines. It's VERY, VERY inconvenient when both installation files have the same name. All other well-known software developers release their installation files with DIFFERENT name. It has became GOOD PRACTICE, and what's more - THE SIGN OF A GOOD FORM to give corresponding name to different platform installators:

Google Chrome Browser: GoogleChromeStandaloneEnterprise.msi GoogleChromeStandaloneEnterprise64.msi

Firebird SQL Server: Firebird-3.0.0.32483_2_Win32.exe Firebird-3.0.0.32483_2_x64.exe

7Zip File Archiver: 7z1600.exe 7z1600-x64.exe

The Bat Mail Client: thebat_32_7-1-18.msi thebat_64_7-1-18.msi

And a lot of others. I have read the typical noncommittal answer from Firefox contributor: "Our installators are uploaded at different servers, so you can download x32 and x64 files in your different folders". It's not an answer. It's just rubbish.

PLEASE GIVE DIFFERENT NAME FOR x32 and x64 installators!!!

I went to this website which claimed that if you share a link to it every time someone clicks you get a point and say 8 clicks could get you a voucher for steam or roblox or something like that, this is a link to the site https://EpicCodes.com/ ?ref=853127 basically my malware states that it is a virus and that i need to pay them 65 dollars to get it fixed, i was wondering if someone at firefox could remove the site and any messages on the internet with the link to it, help remove my virus, and tell the other major browsers, thank you.

Upon opening firefox a few days ago,the entire screen was different with no arrows, buttons, etc to move around so I hard closed it. The next time I tried to open firefox it would not respond. I did a system restore which did not work so I went back to an earlier restore point and now my computer states that it has found an error and needs to reboot which is is stuck in a loop doing over and over. At the bottem it states "critical system error found" and says to look into when the computer comes back up which it never does. What kind of program/virus was unleashed? I probably will have to wipe my hard drive and reinstall Windows and all the other programs I had. I am NOT a happy camper to say the least. What did you do, or what did some hacker of your system do? I am using a friend's computer as if the reinstallation does not work I will need to take it in to be repaired so I cannot take a picture of the blue screen that I get.

After some extremely bad customer service encounters with Tripadvisor yesterday (they gave me an unsolicited spam phone call, so I pulled up their site to complain and found that they have no customer service contact address), I discovered today that to add insult to injury, the *$%^-ing Tripadvisor pop-unders have caused Firefox to forget my saved session of 60+ tabs! I searched for how to block pop-unders, but all I found was how to block pop-ups, which I'm already doing according to Tools > Options. Can anyone here please tell me how I get rid of these wretched pop-unders and stop that ever happening again? Thanks.

Your browser reported a badly-formed HTTP header. This could be caused by an error, a bug in your browser or the settings on your proxy/firewall Try Again

Since I don't run proxies or firewalls, this lands right square in you folks' lap. Recently (last 2 months or so) Firefox refuses to go to some sites, runs slowly on others, halfway loads others.

Aside from destroying the ability to use some very valid, very useful, very much used add-ons, the "new" Firefox (which is quickly working itself onto our "total garbage" list) trespasses on my right to free will. If I want to go to a site that has mis-configured credentials, a warning is good enough and I can proceed at my own risk. I do not recognize your authority to make that decision for me. Just becasue Internet Explorer is no longer in production, Netscape was buried long ago, Chrome is akin to spyware and Safari is for Apple freaks, doesn't mean you have free reign to fuck with us the way you are.

I've created a website in php5. During development I used Firefox 46.0.1 on Ubuntu 14.04LTS. The session variables are nicely stored en can be read.

Now I'm starting to test on different browsers, my Windows 10 pc with Firefox 46.0.1 doesn't store the session variables. Chrome and Edge do store the session variables on my Windows 10 pc. Also on a win 8.1 pc with Firefox 46.0.1 the session variables are not stored.

Any idea what could be the cause?

What I typically do in a php script:

?>

In order to reload the page, I use javascript. "location.reload();" When commenting that line out and refresh the page, the session variables are available.

Any idea on how to solve this issue?

I have used the same css and js for all the browsers. There is no browser specific coding done. Also i tried adding the normalization code. But this did not help. i read this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/962979 . Now i know that changing the value of 'layout.css.devPixelsPerPx' manually will help. But this will solve the problem only in that particular system. I have many users accessing my site from many systems. How do i make sure they have the same look and feel without going to about:config and changing the value of 'layout.css.devPixelsPerPx' manually. PLease help. Thanks

I use a Macbook Pro. I have scoured the internet for answers to this adware problem. I have cleared the two add-ons I had on Firefox (I don't like too have too many - one was speed dial and one was the add-to-speeddial button). I have reset Firefox, and then when that option disappeared from the menu (I'm fairly sure that shouldn't happen?), I refreshed it instead, as that was the only choice left to me. I have uninstalled Firefox and re-installed it. I have updated it to the latest version. I have created a new profile, in fact more than one, since it keeps asking me to do this. The Adware is still there -it doesn't appear on all web pages I visit, just most of them. HELP ME SOMEONE?!! LOL It's driving me nuts!

Recently starting up Firefox after an update to 46, the software acted as if I had never used it before and I had to 'log in'. My sync information has regressed back to a way it was years ago. My bookmarks are stale and new ones missing. I have two other computers I log into with firefox browsing. I'm afraid to check with those to see that they have crashed too.

Can someone explain what went down and why the browser has lost the most recent configuration I had been using?

I'm stuck with Firefox version 36 with no options to change. I need to be able to send a config file or batch file to multiple users that will update the popups exceptions list with a specific site while leaving popup blocker enabled. I'm also running Windows XP (also stuck to this with no option of upgrade). I've tried using a hostperm.1 file with this line in it: "host popup 1 mysite.com" and this doesn't work. I've also tried adding it to the auto config file with this line: "pref("xpinstall.whitelist.add", "mysite.com");" but this doesn't work either. Is there a command line that will do this for me? Or another config file that will accomplish this?

Thanks, John
