Why does the new Firefox return an unreliable source error even for mozilla.com on this WIN8.1 computer?

I updated to the new Firefox. When I try to load a page, I get an "untrusted" source error, even for sites such as support.mozilla.com (any mozilla.com site I have tried) and other sites that I have previously used regularly. The message actually says, "This connection is untrusted." Right now, even google search is untrusted. I can click "I understand the risks" and get an ominous warning. I can also get the "Uh-oh, something went wrong! Error Code 404" when I try one of my standard web sites, including my normal home page. Interestingly, the bottom of the screen informs me that Firefox is automatically sending data to improve my experience.

When I tried to download the new Firefox again, It went to all but the last .1 (3 seconds remaining) and stalled several times.

I have Windows 8.1 and am posting this on a different browser.

Where can I download Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR 52) for Windows in order to continue using the Session Manager extension? It's extremely important and vital that I am able to restore my historical sessions and also save multiple sessions going forward.

When I try to download it, I can see it will be 60 version instead.

Unfortunately I mistakenly updated my ESR 52 version today without realizing I'd lose that extension. This is very frustrating, so to alleviate the issue, I'd just like to have the older version and stick with it. Thank you.

I have a clean basic install of Windows 7 64 bit Pro. It is completely up to date. New install of Firefox 49.

When going to Netflix I get the message

"Firefox is installing components needed to play audio or video..."

but never completes. If I try to run a netflix video my pc crashes, won't reboot until I do a power off.

The desired videos play on Netflix in IE fine.

I have NO antivirus running, FF is set to auto update.

Any ideas ?

I run Ubuntu 10.10 LTSP server/client network and DO NOT want to upgrade Ubuntu... too much trouble, nobody can guarantee it will not hammer my LTSP install and besides, Unity is awful. I need newer Firefox due to some frequently used web pages, so I need an install procedure that will not hammer anything. It's a mission critical user environment. If anybody has positive experience with Firefox upgrade in similar environment please advise.

I'm getting a new (Windows 8.1) computer. I want to be able to use Firefox and Thunderbird just as I left them on the old (Windows 7) computer. Is this the right way to do it:

1. Backup both (to a removable disk) on the old computer with Mozbackup. 2. Download and install both on the new computer. Download and install Mozbackup of the new computer. 3. Restore from the removable disk using Mozbackup on the new computer.

Is this the right idea?

I got a very official looking red screen with the Firefox logo titled "Urgent Firefox update". It had the normal looking opening file box asking me if I wanted to save the file: firefox-patch.exe, a binary file from https://ahghointernetno.net . I closed the window and started researching if this was real. I did make a print screen copy to WordPad but was unable to upload it here do to unsupported file type.

Why is Firefox v36 asking "Do you want the application 'Firefox.app' to accept incoming network connections"? It never did before, so what should I say?

I'm on a Mac OS X 10.6.8 Have just upgraded Firefox from v35 to v36. Every few minutes I get a message "Do you want the application 'Firefox.app' to accept incoming network connections?" It's never done that before, so why now (v36) and what should I say? The message goes on, "Clicking Deny may limit the application's behavior. This setting can be changed in the Firewall panel of security preferences." The other option button is Allow. The computer has always had Firewall switched on. Is Firefox suggesting I now switch Firewall off? What has changed since v35? Has Mozilla offered any information about this? Thank you.

Hello,

I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox and already, I have had problems. I downloaded Firefox and opened it when the download was finished and tried to sign into my Google account, when a lot of random adverts appeard, and my anti-virus popped up blocking whatever it was. At this point I was really concerned as I had just completed a full system scan before changing browsers, and the scan was clean. I then looked at the Add-Ons, which I found two that I had never heard of. I'm not sure whether they were on my computer already or had been added as I downloaded Firefox. I'm confused as I have never seen the two Add-Ons before, not even in Chrome.

Both Add-Ons are disabled and deleted and as far as I'm aware, everything is running as it should be. However, I would like to know if anyone else has experienced this problem before, and if so, what should be done about it. I'm usually very careful when online, so I really don't know where these Add-Ons came from, or if they could be harmful.

Any help with this would be great!

Trying to sync FF to new computer (from Windows 7 to 8.1). I get the 12 dig code from the new computer and enter it on the old one. Nothing happens. Step 5 in the Sync instructions ("When the code is accepted you will see a Device Connected message and your device will immediately begin syncing. Click Finish to close the setup window. ") doesn't happen. I do not see "Device connected". All that happens is that the box returns to the Welcome! text and asks if I want to set up an account or if I have one already.

On the new computer, nothing changes. The "Next" button under the generated code does not light up.
