I just upgraded to the newest version of Firefox for Android however the downloader does not work for certain sites such as Brighton.com. not one video downloader that Mozilla offers works for Android not one I've tried all of them. So I downloaded an exe file so I can download some videos to watch offline and lo and behold Firefox won't let me open it this is ridiculous and I realize you guys are volunteers if you know anybody and supervisory positions and Mozilla let's start a position to fire every one of them and get somebody in there that's confident that can run a website where you can do things that you normally used to do this is ridiculous they offer add-ons that don't work and then they block you from putting the exe files on your phone so you can download a video. I give up to hell with Firefox Google all of them I'm going to Linux this is ridiculous ever since Firefox merged with Google they have become just as big a tyrant as Google y'all have a wonderful day and thanks for letting me vent you know time is a precious commodity you can never get it back only God can give time and I've wasted over an hour tonight trying to download one damn video and Firefox blocks me every way they can I'm done good riddance Mozilla

Hi,

I receive your emails on security (How to avoid wire fraud, spot spyware, smash spam and more) and my concern is holding all my passwords in Firefox Lockwise on my Windows devices which are synched. If someone or some process gains access to one of my PC's they would also I presume gain access to all my passwords. Is this true? If so, can I implement password access to my Firefox Lockwise passwords on Windows machines?

Thanks for your thoughts and hopefully reply.

best regards, Terry

Firefox asks me to download an update multiple times a day. When I click to initiate the update I am taken to a marketing page headed with the VPN and no download happens. It has become very irritating. How do I complete the download and stop the constant interruptions?

Tried to reply to your email. It has not return. Here is a copy of report you requested. It is different from what you sent me.

> Task: invalidateCaches - Unable to invalidate caches > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

I still have no bookmarks. I have restarted the computer a number of times. I also renamed the places.sqlite adding a 1 after places as it said in other directions. I have also refreshed.

Yesterday, I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled after receipt of your response. It said all cookies, history, bookmarks etc transferred successfully. However, I keep getting the message “ and Bookmarks and history systems will not be functional because one of Firefox’s file is in use by another application. Some security software can cause the problem. I use McAfee, I’ve always used it. I have not changed it.

I did not do anything with favicon file as I don’t know what to do, I understand you can delete that. If there is a list of more than one, then what do I do.

As I indicated, I an NOT a technical person.

Please advise.

Thanks.

I've been trying all day to get to Amazon. No go. I've checked here, and found old threads about this problem. I've tried what was suggested in them, but still not able to open Amazon. There was another site that I could not open, also, with the same error message, but I cannot now recall what that site was.

Please help! I need to check on an order from Amazon that I placed just yesterday.

FireFox 93 will not work on many sweepstakes sites like uwinit.com, winloot.com. We are sorry but it appears that the page you are trying to reach is currently unavailable. Please try again later. Chrome is working on same sites. I use FireFox to enter sweeps and it is mostly useless to me now. I am using Windows 10, Norton SafeWeb, "Cookies are not important to me", Roboform. Can I revert to a usable version of FireFox, or can you tell me how to fix it?

Today Firefox opened with my account disconnected. No passwords. I reset my account password but still no passwords. The logins file shows a .corrupt extension. I rename this and nothing happens. Every time I re-open FF (v 93.0) the .corrupt is added and I can't get to my passwords. I have hundreds.
