I noticed during a firmware download with the file extension .DAT that Firefox removed the extension. The file was not recognizable during an attempted firmware upgrade afterward. This is a new issue occurring sometime in the past several months, since last firmware update. Firefox preferences are set to download .DAT files. No other settings are listed for that file extension. I verified the issue points toward Firefox by checking the download with another web browser which completed the download with the extension.

Tried uninstall, update, troubleshoot mode, restart, clear cache, malware detect, task mgr, etc. Windows 10 software, drivers, firewall, hardware, memory, etc are ok.

Firefox hangs, no rhyme or reason, random pages, every hour or so.

Am I the only one having issue?

I can only install Firefox by downloading from the google play store. When I do that it installs something but it is not a real version of Firefox. If I download firefox from Firefox web site I get it to install but Google will not list it under browser. I have to use it by clicking on the Firefox icon which is totally separate from Google.This is aggravating. Is there a fix to make it part of Google's browsers? I am using a Samsung Notebook that is Goggle driven. I have the same issue on my desktop computer. Google will not let real firefox as part of Google. Thank you .My email address associated with Firefox is no longer working.

Hello, I upgraded my windows 8.1 system with firefox on it to windows 10. The windows 10 upgrade saved my windows 8.1 files. I installed firefox on windows 10. I deleted the files created by the install in the folder 'profiles'. When I copy my old firefox profile contents into that firefox profile folder, firefox does not pickup my bookmarks and extensions as I had hoped. Is it possible to get firefox to recognize my old profile contents? Thanks, Doug

I resort to "Logins & Passwords" fairly often and would like my old default setting back: before one of the recent updates, I used to simply find my choice, that is "sort by last modification", coherently conserved upon each launch.

Your updates should be consolidated every 2 or 3 months, and not ask us for updates every few days or weeks. It might seem important to you, but it's super annoying, especially when your automatic updates don't work well anymore. I keep getting a "updates are available" pop-up at the menu bar, and then clicking on it brings me to the download page. I have to download and install every time you bring in a minor update! Also, the school I work in works behind a firewall. Your descriptions and updates always fail their safety precautions, and I have to get the administrator to unlock every time for minor updates! Please organize your updates a little more better.

This last update for Firefox was a bust! It has totally rerouted where my downloads go, changed all my settings! How do I go back to the prior version of Firefox? This has really affected my productivity. I need someone from support to answer this question, and I see I'm not the only one with issues.

'Why am I still seeing blinking ads on firefox pages? I thought you totally solved this problem ? I have been using firefox ad blockers for months with great success; but suddenly they stopped functioning efficiently. Since firefox took them OUT OF MY UPPER TOOLBAR SEVERAL WEEKS AGO . 'Thus I have no idea if they are working or not.' There was no announcement of changers or any update that I know of.

Otherwise with no help from firefox, the last resort will be switching to an independent vpn to resolve firefox ad issues... For years I had no issues with firefox or even ad blocking problems; but now ads and firefox's constant need to take TOTAL control of everything has become a major issue.

If all fails, the last hope will be turning to Express VPN...Thanx for any help you can give...rjk

Hello, there is the note for FF 102 Release:While Bug 1771084 does not represent a specific vulnerability that was fixed, we recommend anyone rebasing patches to include it. 102 branch

Patch 1 and 2. 91 Branch: Patch 1 and 2 (Despite saying Parts 2 and 3, there is no Part 1). To clarify, so the current 102 release of FF does not 'contain any patch for that bug 1771084, and it's recommended manually to install these patches? Or they are already incorporated in the release?

For at least a year, the Healthline site stopped working in FireFox. This was finally corrected a few weeks ago. Now, for the last couple of weeks Reddit no longer works. Both of the above sites have always worked in Brave and Opera. A work around for Healthline was to run it in a private window but this does not work for Reddit. This has become very annoying to the point I am ready to give up on FF. Any suggestions?
