NOTE: I'm posting this from a different machine to the one which has the problem because, well, I can't run Firefox any more :-D

Hello,

The latest beta channel version (installed on 2nd June 2020 at 16:00 UTC+2) of Firefox for x86-64bit Linux now requires GLIBC 2.18 (for libxul.so it says). This was not the case a couple of weeks ago when I last updated the Linux machine's Firefox.

Unfortunately, the highest version of GLIBC available on Redhat Enterprise Linux 7, through the usual yum channel for our servers, is GLIBC 2.17.

Anyone else stumble upon this? Any solutions (except upgrading to RHEL 8 ;-) )? At worst, I could downgrade Firefox to a previous beta or stable version.

Sorry for the probably noob-ish question. Error message when trying to run firefox:

XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/local/firefox/libxul.so: /lib64/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.18' not found (required by /usr/local/firefox/libxul.so) Couldn't load XPCOM.

Restore old version of Firefox and profile

I was running just "regular" Firefox on my Windows laptop. Yesterday my help desk had me upgrade to Firefox Extended Support Release to install a corporate email security certificate. I did not know when I installed this version of Firefox that it would overwrite my existing browser, and when it did, I lost all of my add-ins, extensions, bookmarks, etc. I'm hoping to be able to restore my old profile with all of the existing data I had. If I have to "downgrade" to regular Firefox I think that's fine since I just needed the ESR to install the security cert and that's complete now.

I looked on the about:profiles page and I have two other profiles, default and june19 (I presume the latter is from June 2019?), but I don't know how to determine which one is the preferred one. When I clicked Launch profile in new browser, it instructed me to create a new profile to protect my information and I hesitated to do that because I'm trying to restore an old profile, not create a new one. In case you can't tell, I'm not an advanced software user, so give instructions like you would to a 5-year-old or your grandma... lol. Thanks in advance!

I teach at James Madison University and must download zip and jpg files for instruction. Sometime within the last 48 hours, Firefox would not download any jpg or zip files. For years now, this has never been an issue. The tab indicates connecting, the grey shadow passes through the tab and then nothing. I have tried this at different academic sites and the same happens. There is no problem downloading zip or jpg files using Chrome. What happened and how to fix it?

Hello, I am trying to figure out how to prevent the dialog box from prompting me each time I open a pdf attachment. Under applications for PDF I have selected the action to Use Nitro Pro. However, each time I try to open a pdf attachment from my email, I still receive the dialog box; What should Firefox do with the file? Nitro Pro is the default under open with and the "Do this automatically..." is checked. I cannot figure out why the file isn't opening into Nitro without the prompt? Does someone know how to set the options so the pdf opens into the application without being prompted by the dialog box?

Thanks so much, Candie
