Firefox auto update has stopped working for me. Neither of the settings, see attached screenshot do anything, all I get is a popup saying a new version of firefox is available with a link to https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/ I recently did a clean install of Win 10 pro x64 and this problem may have started then. I have another PC on the same network where auto download of updates are still working. Hopefully someone can point me to a way to get this working again.

Hi,

Even though I live in Czech Republic, I set up Firefox to use English. After reading some help here I had to reinstall it using different (EN) installer. That's a bit odd but OK, it worked them.

But when Firefox installed an update, it was again in CZ. :/

Thanks for fixing that.

April 10, 2021 Hello, I created my GMAIL account on Mozilla (last version 78.9.1 (32 bits)).

When I try to send a mail I receive error messages (see "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG").

When I cancel these messages, a page opens (see "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla '02.JPG").

When I validate my Gmail account address (see "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla '03'.JPG"), the previous page is displayed again. It is impossible for me to validate and enter my password.

If I send a message from another account, the message goes out well, it is not mentioned as undelivered but it is not displayed in the 'Gmail incoming mail' and I cannot force the reception of messages.

When I want to leave Gmail, I get this message "ERROR TO QUIT GMAIL.JPG". I waited 2 hours without success. When I connect to Gmail via the Internet, I find the message sent by another account in my incoming mail.

The image "Param IMAP Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG" shows my IMAP settings in Mozilla. The image "Param SMTP Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG" shows my SMTP settings in Mozilla.

How to fix this problem? Thanks in advance. for your cooperation. ONE WHO KNOWS IS BETTER THAN TEN WHO ARE LOOKING. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

Le 10 avril 2021 Bonjour, J'ai créé mon compte GMAIL sur Mozilla (dernière version 78.9.1 (32 bits)).

Lorsque j'essaie d'envoyer un mail je reçois des messages d'erreurs (voir "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG").

Lorsque j'annule ces messages, une page s'ouvre (voir "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla 02.JPG").

Lorsque je valide mon adresse de compte Gmail (voir "Error sending msg from Gmail Mozilla '03'.JPG"), la page précédente s"affiche à nouveau. Il m'est impossible de valider et de pouvoir entrer mon mot de passe.

Si j'envoie un message depuis un autre compte, le message part bien, n'est pas mentionné comme non délivré mais ne s'affiche pas dans le 'Courrier entrant de Gmail' et je ne peux pas forcer la réception de messages.

Lorsque je veux quitter Gmail, je reçois ce message "ERROR TO QUIT GMAIL.JPG". J'ai attendu 2 heures sans succès.

Lorsque je me connecte sur Gmail via Internet, je retrouve le message envoyé par un autre compte dans mon courrier reçu.

L'image "Param IMAP Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG" indique mes paramètres IMAP dans Mozilla. L'image "Param SMTP Gmail Mozilla 01.JPG" indique mes paramètres SMTP dans Mozilla.

Comment régler ce problème ?

Merci par avance. UN QUI SAIT VAUT MIEUX QUE DIX QUI CHERCHENT.

I downloaded and installed the firefox app and nothing happens. No menu. No tabs. The word "firefox" appears in the upper left corner of my screen and a "." appears under the app, indicating that it is open. The screen "blinked" momentarily when I opened the app. I am a longtime user of Firefox and this same thing happened this morning when I opened the app, which I uninstalled, and then downloaded and installed this new app. Same problem.

Whenever I open Firefox I'm asked to download impression.link. It's keeps popping up even though I cancel. I've tried saving it to make it go away but each new tab I open in Firefox browser I get the same all over again. Impression.link pops up and asks whether I want to save or run it. I've never had this before and it's extremely annoying as I don't know if it's a threat. Do you know what this is and how do I stop it.

Either I'm a dork or the instructions that I have found are not very clear. I have been trying for several days to transfer my settings from my desktop to a new laptop. I have gone to the %appdata%\mozilla\firefox\profiles page until I'm blue in the face. I transferred a directory called "m80s2e9e.default" from the profiles directory on the desktop to the %appdata%\mozilla\firefox\profiles directory on the laptop but keep getting "Firefox profile cannot be loaded" error. What am I doing wrong? Thanks, Dale Webb

Firefox is making itself a "pain..." again. It is now unhappy I am using an OLD PROFILE and wants me to use/go to a new one.

Your advice? Of course I hesitate as going to rel 87.0 got me into this trouble in the first place by losing EVERYTHING and forcing me to create a new profile, while "hiding" everything and started me from scratch. So now again, "I hesitate". I am almost 84 yo and I cant keep trying to recover FIREFOX bookmarks, add-ons...history.. keeps losing with every release.

Your advice? TRY to get at least, the bookmarks I recovered to a "new" profile or ignore FIREFOX and keep using my old working profile? Anyone find a way to "recover" lost ONETAB URL's?

I have a virtual w10x64 machine which I need to play old flash content on a specific (trusted) website which is the only one allowed in mms.cfg and which does not use https. With the latest update to 78.9 FF does not open the flash content and the pages anymore. So I reverted to 78.8 but the auto-update always intercepts.

How can I disable the auto-updates for good? Is there possibly a policy for this?

I think the FF programmers need better imagination on specific scenarios before they impose so called "security features" on the users and break their processes.
