Hello firefox community

Im hoping you can help with this request, here goes my issue is as following: we need firefox version 6.0.1 64bit that wont auto update, as we have some products where the webinterface only works with this browser and this version and early.

Is there a way to ensure this version wont update? like when you run the setup you can use a -noupdate command etc.

Thanks in advance

FYI, we cannot change the interface so this is the only way to ensure access to these products.

I have updated FF every time a new version comes out. I'm on FF 76.0.1 for MacOS.

Several websites "warn" me that I'm on an unsupported version of FF, and to update to the newest version. Some sites won't even let me continue, but only give me the option to close the tab, or go to the Mozilla site to download the newest version.

I've seen the response to a Windows user with the similar problem, and have gone through all the steps of checking general.useragent.compatMode.firefox and it's set to "false" and none of the settings needed to be changed. I also checked the privacy.resistFingerprinting and it is set to "false".

I'm tired of websites thinking I'm using FF 56, when I'm using FF 76.0.1!! MacBook Pro mid-2014, OSX 10.14.6 Mojave, 16 GB RAM DDR3, 2.8GHz Intel Core i7, Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit).

Installed plugins include Shockwave Flash as noted, but there are a few websites I use for work that stubbornly still require Flash :(

When I try to update my firefox installation on ubuntu, if just downloads a .bz2 file, but there is no application to open it with. How do I open it ? Do I use the archiver in ubuntu ? Is there any particular script in the archive that I should run for update rather than for fresh install ?

For 3 days I have been trying to install Firefox. Firefox dowloads and starts installing. I have set Firefox as my default browser and turned off antivirus to not interfere with the install. It appears to install and then gives an error message that the address of the download file is incorrect (see attached JPG). I sometimes get a message about a file being corrupted (roughly one time in each five tries) also shown in the JPG. I have tried clean installs at least a dozen times (delete the programfiles/mozilla node and then do a fresh download. After clicking download have selected both run and save multiple times. I always get the error message about a bad address. Any help would be greatly apprediated. Thanks.

When downloading a file I always have to open it from the browser, unless it will appear as damaged. For example, after downloading a document "Study.doc" and NOT opening it from Firefox I always have two files in the Downloads folder — "Study.doc" which size is 0 kb and "Study.doc.part" which is exactly the size of the document. Therefore I cannot move it without first opening it even if I don't want to.

I live in Mountain View and use Google WiFi which is provided by Google for the City of Mountain View. For the past few months, they have been having a BIG problem with the corruption of downloads. Even teensy tiny ones. Perhaps you've heard about it since you're also in Mountain View. They have not responded to repeated posts from the forum... I have an iMac running Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and I haven't been able to update my software. I go to Lane Medical Library at Stanford to use the Windows machines there. I load whatever standalone software that I can onto a jump drive and install it at home. Unfortunately, some sites (like Apple and maybe even Mozilla!) recognize the computer you're on and only allow you to download software compatible with the machine that you are actually sitting at. This means that I can't reinstall Safari because I can't get a copy of it. And it looks like I might not be able to install Firefox 17.0 either. At least, that's what I'm trying to find out. "We've made some educated guesses about your current browser and operating system." See what I mean? So when I go to the library, will I be able to download a copy of Firefox 17.0 for the Mac and install it on my computer at home? Thanks!

My Macbook Pro is running 10.7.5 I got an update notice in Firefox and tried to update to v. 17.

I. When I try to move the download to the Applications folder:

(1) If I choose "Replace," I get the error message: "The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access some of the items."

(2) If I choose "Keep Both Files," I get the error message: "The operation can’t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code 0)."

II. Version 16 no longer works:

1. If I try to open it now, I get the error message: "You can't open the application Firefox.app because it may be damaged or incomplete."

2. If I try to throw out the damaged app, I get the error message: "The operation can’t be completed because the item “Firefox.app” is locked."

Can someone help me with this? Thanks!
