Firefox 40.0.2 for Mac says that it can not install a security patch because my account does not have permission. I only have one account on my Mac, and it is authorized to install software. Firefox said to contact my System Administrator, but I do not have a System Administrator account. I recently replaced the hard drive on my MacBook laptop, and I went to an Apple Store to get an O/S installed. I have O/S 10.7.5.

Private windows should leave no record of previous usage in the computer, right? When using a private windows, autocomplete is offering options, and moreover options of fills I have never used. For example, when trying to login to an email account, I get the options for accounts that are not mine (nor of any friend that has ever used my computer).

Is this ok (if so, why? shouldn't there be no info stored at all) or should I be worrying about my computer/network being compromised??

Android 5.1 Firefox How to save on sdcard

Hello, In the past, on a stock android 4.3 (before the sdcard policy) I had success with saving on my microSD with the browser.download.dir option. I am currently trying out a cyanogenmod version of android 5.1.1 with root access, but pointing the variable to an sdcard path and chosing the firefox download does nothing other than displaying a toast "download started". As soon as I change it to a custom folder in internal memory, everything works again. I suspect this is about write permissions? Firefox never asks me for superuser rights, nor have I seen any in its manifest. How would I grant access? Alternatively, is there a way to handle downloads with a third party app, eg the ES explorer download utility? Thank you for any assistance.

Every time when I click option, Firefox create a new tab of about;preference and stops to responds. Also the same thing happens when I downloads something. I would add an image but it turns out that clicking "browse" image to add to this question crashes it too. I have re-installed(completely uninstall and install again) and refreshed Firefox and its the same.

Recently with the release of Firefox 40. I have been plagued with an issue of Windows Vista freezing. No response from the operating system at all. The only time this happens is while Firefox is online and on a website. None of the websites are bad. It even locked up on Microsoft's Website as well as Mozilla's website. No mouse or keyboard activity. Hard shutdown is needed to regain control. I may be wrong looking at Firefox as a possible suspect in this. Just curious if anyone else with Windows Vista have the same issue lately. I prefer Firefox over all others. But currently about to test an alternate browser to keep the system off IE! Reformat of the OS, then a test of the RAM passed the memory check software. The system is not getting hot. When Firefox is left running, perhaps even minimized, it freezes. Windows Log reads COM+ error, Kernel Errors and multiple other errors. All on a fresh install of the OS. No virus or malware in the system either. I cannot locate a valid reason for this. Any ideas?
