Hello there. I tried to update Firefox to 58.01, but since updating my antivirus appears to block the firefox.exe.

I uninstalled Firefox completely, then tried to reinstall it but again my antivirus blocked it before I could open firefox.exe

I reinstalled Firefox again, this time disabling my antivirus and Firefox.exe appeared to work again, I was browsing and redownloading my addons. Once the antivirus enabled itself again after 10 minutes, the same problem happened. Firefox shortcuts couldn't find the Firefox.exe, and in the main Mozilla folder, firefox.exe had become firefox.exe.sig

When trying to uninstall it after this happens, I can't uninstall it through normal procedures unless I rename firefox.exe.sig to firefox.exe (which is also unable to run, says it isn't the proper version when it is)

Would appreciate some help here, thank you

I turned on Firefox this morning (after a Microsoft update/shut down last night). Heading to my usual pages where my logins/passwords come up automatically, I discovered the boxes were empty - they are usually filled by autofill; these are login pages to my blog, Amazon, eBay etc. I had also been logged out of my Firefox account, so I logged back in (I had remembered that password, luckily) Checking Options/security - show saved logins, I found absolutely no list of saved logins at all. (Horror!) I synced Firefox - still no list of saved logins Where have they gone and how do I get them back?

Hoping someone can help 'cos it's about five years' worth of saved logins.

I'm using firefox developers edition, and after one of the updates (unsure which one) it does not restarted after updating. After I click on Firefox icon I can see two firefox processes in task manager, but after some time they just quit, without showing any window or even error message. I tried to enter safe mode by pressing "shift" while starting firefox - no result, processes quit before even showing dialog about entering safe mode. I tried to uninstall & install firefox back - still the same result. I removed profiles in "cd %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\" - still the same. There are two records in windows logs upon each start attempt:

I don't even have idea where to start looking for the actual reason.

Totally freezes my PCs "(Not Responding)" in title bar, but not Mac CAUSE: Trend Micro antivirus

I've used Thunderbird probably for as long as it's existed and I have never found another email client that I like better or even as well. But it freezes on my PCs. This started a couple years ago and I thought it was my computer (desktop PC). Then it also began on my PC Laptop. I wondered if the problem happened after an update, but was unable to target the exact date to try to link it to an update. 2 years ago I added a Mac Air to my computers, installed Thunderbird and it has worked without a hitch...same email accounts, same settings, same everything. It gets so bad on my PCs that it freezes everything on the computer and I have to walk away until it unfreezes, then I go to online access for my email accounts...which I don't like.

Why OK on Mac but not PCs?

Why does junk detector permanently delete suspicious mail rather than send it to the Junk folder? SOLVED caused by McAfee spam controls

Recently, starting about a month ago or so, when I open Thunderbird and it connects to my ISP to download new emails, any emails that the Junk Detector "thinks" might be spam, those emails are immediately permanently deleted instead of being moved into my JUNK folder, as I have instructed Thunderbird in all the options on how to handle junk mail. I know that there have been some emails that have been sent to me for the first time by a new friend or colleague whom I have not yet put into my contacts folder. In fact, I know of one email in particular when someone was sending me their email address in the email that just got permanently deleted. So if anyone knows what is going on here and what I can do to stop this behavior, I would be most grateful any assistance. Right now, to monitor activity, I am logging on to my email account through my ISP so I can examine what is in the Inbox ready to be downloaded into Thunderbird before I launch Thunderbird. It is a nuisance, but is the only way I know for the moment to monitor all my incoming mail. Thank you!

I have Firefox Version 38.05 on Windows 7 and have refreshed, tried enabling a new HTTP cache.checked out the add-ons and still having the same problems The above statement about slow loading on my Firefox occurs on my desktop , but not on my laptop Windows 7. I Have tried all the recommended solutions and so far nothing works. Is there a possibility that some other programs could be in conflict with Firefox? This problem has been ongoing for several months and my patience is wearing thin. Any suggestions, fixes or advice? Thank you

I have uninstalled Firefox 40, deleted the profiles folder, reinstalled Firefox, restored Firefox 40 and profiles from a backup and I am still getting this message. I even downgraded to a previous version and restored the profiles for that version and still this nasty error crops up on anything I try to do. I cannot find any info on where other files files are stored that I am not restoring or changing that are still lingering. I have never seen anything like this.This is after spending 3 weeks completely updating and changing Firefox to suit my needs and dumping Chrome,this is what I get. It appears I will have to move back to chrome as I need a browser that works. I have tried everything I can find regarding this to no avail. I am really upset over this especially after all the time spent moving from Chrome to Firefox. I really need an answer or I will have to delete Firefox and move back to Chrome as much as I hate to do that. It still works!! Anyone have an answer for this? Is their no one at Mozilla to help with this? Help!
