Running FF 67.0.3 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. When I go to certain web pages (Amazon, My Music) I get an intrusive pop-up saying my version of FF is no longer supported and I should upgrade. The pop-up cannot be dismissed, and the only option is 'update now'. (And FWIW, the Amazon page behind it is "out of focus" ) The 'update now' takes me to a page telling me to open the 'help - about' and it will automatically start downloading. Only it doesn't start downloading . And other pages say FF is supposed to update automatically, without any intervention on my part. So I'm stuck.

Trying to bring bookmarks from Safari to Firefox, I've carefully followed the instructions provided by folks in this forum with no success.

Using "Import data from another browser" I get "From Safari" folders but they turn up empty; see screenshot. Using "Import bookmarks from HTML" and selecting the bookmark file I exported from Safari, I get an "Export Complete" message but nothing shows up in Firefox. Not even empty folders.

I've tried repeatedly. Quit browsers, rebooted, opened browsers, nothing works.

(sorry if this is a duplicate question; I put it in the wrong place earlier)

Help?

I want to use Firefox as my default browser and have it installed on my laptop. My current default browser is Chrome. When I click on Firefox in the start menu, the user account control window pops up and asks if I want to allow Firefox to make changes to my computer. Click yes, and it just continues to ask if I want to make changes but never opens.

I am running Windows 10 Pro which was recently upgraded from Windows 7 Pro.

Any help would be appreciated. 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.

Given that Firefox Developer Edition isn't typically packaged by distros, the only way to install it is manually unpacking the tarball from Mozilla to some suitable location and manually write a .desktop entry. But now that the main Firefox build is available as a Flatpak, are there any plans for publishing Developer Edition that way as well?
