I used to have Firefox update itself using automatic updates, and occasionally I would manually trigger an update by checking the HELP>ABOUT menu. For some time now, I am getting an error message inside the ABOUT pop-up window. The current message is "Unable to check for updates due to internal error".

I've un-installed and re-installed several times. It doesn't happen on other computers I own where updates work just fine.

I tried searching, but couldn't find anything relevant

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks !

Since the update a few days ago, Firefox is crashing and some sites such as Trust Pilot, do not work at all on Firefox. I know it is Firefox because it works fine with Chrome. Even Google Search does not work right.

What is the problem?

There exists a problem, or at least I think it is, that I have with the New Tab page. If I have a website I visit on a daily basis like Discord and Twitch, and want to get rid of it from my New Tab page by clicking on the "Delete from History" button, I expect it to disappear within a single click although it doesn't happen in that way. Instead, I need to repeat the process by many tens of times just for it to be gone, and it frustrates me. Looking for alternatives that I don't fundamentally understand, mainly found in the settings, also don't do any good.

So what's the issue? My best solution is just to keep on what I was doing until it's gone.

Hello, I've noticed a change since the last update and don't understand why?

When opening the bookmarks tab I would get the drop down of a long list of links I have saved. I sometimes bunch them into groups so when looking down the long list, I can see the link I want better when more than one are from the same website.

But my issue is that when I went through the list and found that group of links, I could click onto one to open the page. In the past before the update I could click on the bookmarks drop down again, and still see the same area of links I had just clicked on.

Now when the bookmarks drop down closes it defaults to the top of the list and I need to scan down to find the links I was looking at again. Why? Yes when I closed the browser off and reopened it the bookmarks list would start at the top again. But if left opened I could click on the bookmarks tab and it would open to the same link area I clicked onto last.

Is there a way in settings I can reverse this annoying, unnecessary change.

A word to the Firefox workers that like changing things for no reason. I use Firefox because I like the things your browser has that the others don't. Keep taking the little things away that people like, which you seem to keep doing, then my favourite browser will just become "The same old s#*@" like all the others.

This has happened to me several times and I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, but then it happens again weeks, months later. It says to contact Mozilla for a correct certificate but how do I do that. There's no instructions on how to do this. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

Hello, how can I rearrange the icons in the overhang menu to the left? Since yesterday the icons are centered in the middle of the overhang menu. If you make the Firefox window smaller now, the icons on the right are no longer displayed. I am using version 110 on a Windows 7 system. Thanks a lot for the help.

Almost daily I get an intrusive update notice which is invasive and unacceptable.

If your browser is so flawed that updates are done daily (during most weeks) then you should just plain GIVE UP!

At least have the courtesy and brains to schedule this ever 2 to 4 weeks at most. Stop invading my privacy and get your act together!!!!

I have been running firefox on my macbook air for years. I just recently upgraded my O.S. to Catalina. I did this primarily because my old firefox would no longer update. I did the upgrade to Catalina then downloaded "new" firefox. I have both "versions" of firefox available. the old one with all my bookmarks etc. and the new one with nothing. I hit move bookmarks on the new version but the only options were from chrome or safari. How can I move over the bookmarks to the new one. Thanks
