I am on a metered/limited phone hotspot connection most of the time. When Firefox indicates there is a new update available, I need to know how much data transfer it requires. If an update is large, I need to take my laptop to a free WiFi location. Thanks

Hello! I am using firefox on windows10 I am facing problems with my firefox browser, some buttons are not responding where as the same buttons in site work well and good in chromium based ones. This is my first problem

My second problem is that I uninstall firefox completely and install again. I am getting a welcome window saying "Firefox has been installed before. Let's get a new copy". Please help me get an experience as if i am installing firefox for the first ever time on my machine.

Please address them both

I've ran apt remove --purge firefox and completely deleted the ~/.mozilla directory, reinstalled and still get a Mozilla Crash Reporter window.

If I try to run firefox from terminal I get: (Running in safe mode (firefox --safe-mode) makes no difference.)

   [GFX-]: glxtest: libpci missing.  

I haven't made any config or extension changes since it stopped working, and not sure what could be causing this. I don't mind starting from scratch, just need Firefox back. :)

I got a bug, or a hack, or a virus that corrupted my FIREFOX so had to uninstall and re-install.

Have got most of it fixed except I can't get the BOOKMARK "BAR" to display [see pic attached].

If I select "Bookmark" on the top bar, it opens the bookmark window but I want it where it has been for over a decade, between HISTORY AND TOOLS.

I downloaded the current rel 86. My first FIREFOX copy was ~2004/2005 ver 1.0.

Yesterday I updated Big Sur (11.2.2). When I started up Firefox I got a message indicating that I had to update my version of Firefox. I clicked on the link and it sent me to Apple and Apple said it was only supporting IOS. I never could find a link to get the latest version for MACOSX as it seemed that the three places I tried were for IOS. What/where is the URL for MACOSX ? According to FIREFOX I am up to date (86.0) 64 bit

Today I tried to update Firefox through the Help/About Firefox dialog. The update from 85 to 86 appeared to go fine. I got the Click to Restart Firefox and complete Update button, and the application restarted when I clicked the button. However, opening the Help/About Firefox dialog again displays the message "Firefox is being updated by another instance". It is not, so it appears that this update has not completed correctly, and, in this state, I suspect that further updates won't work either. Has anyone else seen this issue?

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.

I just updated Firefox on my Mac to Firefox 86.0 and the app itself became named Firefox 2. When it is running the name on dock is now Firefox 2.

I tried to change it back to plain Firefox (removing the space character and 2 from its name in the Application folder).

When I did that an relaunched it the display looked a bit weird and all of my bookmarks were gone!

Changing it back to Firefox 2 made it well again. I have never, ever seen Firefox do this.

I am unable to download images from Google Drive using FireFox. I've looked through several discussion boards and tried various solutions: managing exceptions in cookies, clearing cookies and site data, signing out of all other google accounts, signing out and signing back in; thus far nothing has worked.

It also seems as though I am perfectly able to download regular text documents.

Other people have received an error message when encountering this problem, I haven't even gotten that far. I click download, a couple loading messages appear in the bottom left, and then nothing happens.

I know that this is solely a problem with my FireFox, as I've just installed Google Chrome and was able to download the image; however, I'm not a fan of Google Chrome and would like to resolve this issue I'm running into with FireFox so that I can continue using it.

Attached is an image of the only message that appears when I attempt to download an image.

When I turned on my computer this morning a message said I needed to download Firefox Update, so I clicked on that link. About a half hour later after it had also updated Windows 10 a page popped up telling me I had been sent a code to my email that I would need to input. I have not received an email or junk mail with any code. However, it looks like I already have Version 86. Please help me with this issue. I am so overwhelmed with computer issues I'm on the verge of tears right now. My last Windows 10 update Did NOT install and I am not the only one with this issue, but NO help from Microsoft. Did Mozilla update Windows 10 to accept the new version of Firefox? I looked at your educated guess, clicked on Show Details, nothing came up. Then I clicked on Troubleshooting Information and Share Data. I don't know if you are able to see this list or not, I don't know what 99% of it means, but I did copy a few things that may be helpful. environmentVariables": {

I already have VERSION 86 according to the information on Firefox. But the message I had this morning specifically asked to download FIREFOX latest version. Please help. Rhonda

Since I am unable to find any forum dedicated to add-ons I'll post my question here and hope for the best. How do I transfer my FVD Speed Dial cells in my old laptop (win 7) to Firefox in my new laptop (win 10). Please don't tell me I'm going to have to redo each one by hand. I did check the Export button on Speed Dial but it doesn't transfer the custom pictures. Is there an easier way to do this? Like maybe moving a specific file(s)? Thank you - Sharon D.
