Hi,

I got a McAfee report on the first machine that I tried to deploy this file.

Firefox Setup 89.0.1.exe contains the GenericRXAA-AA!92712AE6AC5F Trojan. Undetermined clean error, OAS denied access and continued. Detected using Scan engine version 6200.9189 DAT version 10008.0000.

I scanned the file with on VirusTotal and verify the hash. It doesn't bring up anything.

Does someone know anything about this?

Thanks.

I downloaded Firefox 89.0.1 via Microsoft Edge from the regular mozilla.org site.

I was redirected to this site after the download started: https://cdn.stubdownloader.services.mozilla.com/builds/firefox-stub/de/win/[...]/Firefox%20Installer.exe

I was confused when I saw, that the sha256 checksum mismatched with the one in the repository. Also after multiply downloads from the mentioned site, I recognized all installation files had different checksums.

Is this a bug or a malicious firefox download? Or smth else?

Thanks in advance.

Hi...for 3 days I've been unable to download anything from Hulu, Amazon Prime, Kanopy or Hoopla. Instead there's the message repeatedly about Firefox installing components to make it possible to download---anything. "Please try again later." I am not happy.

Recently my tabs and tool bar color scheme all turned white. I have gone through Add Ons and Themes and changed/enabled the default, as well as other color themes. The tabs still don't appear properly. They all blend together, whereas previously I could see an outline for each tab. I then wanted to uninstall firefox and then install it again. The problem I am having is that when I go to install it (after downloading it again), it recognizes I previously had it installed and it only allows me to install it again with whatever is left behind from the previous install. My PW, History, Login, etc., are still present on the new install. My question..... How can I install FireFox and have it be complete new? I don't want any previous info on there. Something has messed with my application internally and I don't know how to isolate it and would prefer a completely fresh slate. I believe my PC is operating Windows 10. I have been using the same system and Firefox on this PC for 4 years now, without previous issues. Thank you.

What setting will stop the constant notice "Download the latest version of Firefox." I don't want 20 notices per day. It's like having a child in the backseat "are we there yet?" "are we there yet?" "are we there yet?" How many times do I have to click the "Dismiss" button before this stupid software understands that I do not want updates? I've noticed that this is a common complaint. Stop the bullying by making people choose automatic updates. Many times things get messed up on my computer with updates and it is not worth the aggravation. Candace M.

I've managed multiple profiles, and used the profile manager for years.

Usually, when I want to update/replace a session from one profile to another, these are the files I transfer.

When I launch the profile, it should open to the same tab as in the previous profile, and the tab count should be the same. That is, until today.

No matter what I try with the new profile, the same old session keeps coming up.

I was using Firefox this morning, and the program crashed. When I restarted, I found I had lost all my passwords. I searched for the "Old Firefox Data" folder on my desktop--and everywhere else, and there is no such folder on my computer. I tried importing passwords from Safari and that didn't work at all. I am traveling right now and don't have access to my backup disk.

This is the second time this has happened with FF, and I am about to dump the program because of this.

Any ideas?

Hello, Genius Folks.

As I am using an HP Chromebook 11 G3 with my work and needed to install firefox to use one of our tools, however, I cannot find the right solution to download and install it. I google all the possible ways but there is missing in the steps and I cannot find it in my Chromebook,

There is a step I need to go to Settings >> Advance >> Developers >> Turn on Linux. But my laptop's settings are not showing me any "Developers" option.

Would there be anyone who can help me in this scenario? Or someone who experienced this?

Thanks in advance! Honey,
