Ark extracted Version 119 files into /home/Downloads/Firefox/Firefox. I tried ./update from the BASH command line, but didn't know which argument(s) to add to that command. I'm hoping to update Firefox 78.14 ESR to a recent version, whether ESR or not. Thanks for your help.

Hi,

I cannot download & installed any add-ons or themes. After clicking the install button, I always get a red bar saying "Download failed. Please check your connection.". This happens on Firefox, Firefox beta and Firefox nightly.

I did some googling and found similar posts from a few years ago. These seem to suggest I don't have the correct certificate used to verify extension signatures:

I checked my certificates and I don't have anything from "Mozilla Corporation - signingca1.addons.mozilla.org" (there's a screenshot of this cert in the first forum link above), so I think this is indeed the issue? I've attached a screenshot of my cert list where the Mozilla cert should be.

Please note I am on an M3 Pro macbook pro. It's a work laptop and I thought maybe our network settings were interfering with things, but my previous work laptop (Intel) could install add-ons just fine.

Would appreciate some help!

P.S. I found a workaround where I copied over all extension JSON and XPI files from my old laptop. So I am using my previous extensions just fine but still cannot download any new ones. Also I don't have access to my old laptop anymore so can't copy over any new ones.

Firefox is my longstanding browser (on Windows 10). I wish to make use of the Firefox PDF viewer, but have been unable to gain access to it. If for the purposes of an attachment I click on "Open with", Firefox does not appear among the viewers offered. I'm not tech savvy, so a step by step (idiot's) guide as how I can gain access to and then make use of the Firefox as my default PDF viewer will be greatly appreciated, please.

I wish to install and use the Firefox browser on my old 64bit Windows 7 laptop.

I believe the last v115 will be the last Windows 7 compatible version of Firefox, if this is correct where can I find this or the correct version of Firefox to download and install on my Windows 7 laptop?

The Firefox website only seems to provide v119 now.

Thanks, Graham

i do not want the new update of firefox, and theres no way to shut off the updates. i can only switch to ask me when to install and manually install, not that i do NOT want to EVER install the latest firefox, because it truly SUCKS. it screwed up all the fonts everywhere on the web, somethings are huge and others are too small to read. i woke up a couple of days ago to an unreadable internet. i had to reinstall the last update before this one, start from scratch with all my passwords and a lot of hours of messing with my computer just to have it bearable and able to read my emails. now it keeps prompting me to install the latest. like every few hours i get an annoying pop up to install the latest. then to get it to go away i had to click on something, that downloaded it even though i dont want it. i seriously may have to switch browsers and abanadon you all completely because thats how bad your latest update is, and thats how much it sucks to not be able to stop it form harassing me every few hours to instal it....with no way to turn it off completely that i do not ever want the latest crap update.

The Debian Firefox packages available are only 115.6. Thought it would be nice to have the latest. Grabbed all the dependencies according to the Mozilla web site.

Installed Firefox 121.0 as root and placed folder into /opt, as instructed. Went through all the settings and imported my bookmarks.

Now there is a 121.0.1 upgrade available but my browser won't automagically install the upgrade. Says click here to download. So I do. I get the entire tar.bz2 bundle, which creates a full directory structure, as if I was starting over.

Can I just move a few files from that into the existing /opt/firefox directory to get the upgrade? If so, which ones?

Or, can I move few files from the existing directory into the new version, and replace the whole lot? If so, which ones?

Thanks in advance.

New to me Surface3 pro tablet. Have FF on my desktop, want it on the tablet and synced with the desktop. Download and install were fine up until i went to log in on the tablet. I mis spelled the email address and did not notice until the codes never arrived. I cant find a way to get FF to "forget" what i entered. I uninstalled hoping that would do it and deleted the FF old data file it saved on the screen, but no matter what i do it keeps coming back to the old misspelled entry and does not let me log out or change it. What to do! Tablet is running W10 Pro Send this from my desktop also running W10Pro

Hi

I tried moving the firefox profile from my old windows 10 laptop to my new windows 11 laptop but the migration wasn't successful.

I tried the below steps:

Clicked the firefox three bars at the top right corner of the browser->then the help button->then more troubleshooting information->then clicked the open folder button next to the profile folder->then copied the profile to an external USB ->then took this firefox profile and copied it to the existing firefox profile in the new windows 11 laptop via the same location.

However, the data: cookies, bookmarks & history from the prior firefox profile (windows 10) are missing once restarting up the firefox browser in the (windows 11)

Any ideas if there may be something I'm missing.

Thanks,

Chris
