Dear Friends, Why don't the Firefox ESR updates install on my computer anymore - it won't go past 102.5? I keep hitting the download, then install the file and restart Firefox and even the computer sometimes, but it will NOT install the new versions.

Why?

It always has in the past. Now I can't access my online banking due to their security measures. Very upset!

Please help me. Thank you.

I was updating Firefox on my on my computer, Mac OS 10.11.6( I know, I know…). Now The current version of FF won’t run and I am unable to upgrade the operating system because it so old. Is there a way to figure out which version of FF I had? Its slightly overwhelming to look at the choices of older versions to download. Any help is appreciated. Been a FF supporter forever and love it!

Hi, I just paid $99.00 for the update to microsoft office on my macbook pro. The download will not open due to the message: "Microsoft_Office_16.67.22111300_Installer.pkg” cannot be opened because it is from an unidentified developer. It cannot verify this app is free from malware."

It is a purchase from the microsoft website. Is there a way to set up firefox to allow opening this installer? Thanks.

Version 102.5.0esr installed. About Firefox indicates it is up to date. Bank website indicates the browser is out of date. Downloaded 107.0.1 and no data such, as bookmarks, was transferred. How do I transfer or import bookmarks, home page, etc. from 102.5.0esr to 107.0.1?

I prefer to update Firefox manually, so in my Firefox settings, I have it set to: "Check for updates but let you choose to install them".

So I sometimes get a message when I launch Firefox saying "Update available. Download the latest version of Firefox." and I click "Dismiss"

Today, I launched Firefox (v107.0), got this update message, and clicked "Dismiss". However, when I go to About Firefox, it says "Firefox is being updated by another instance".

Why is Firefox ignoring my preference?

I had an issue with Macbook Pro. Apple support had to wipe and reinstall hard drive. Firefox is my default browser and I was signed in. When we reinstalled Firefox on my new hard drive, I signed in and there's nothing there -- no booksmarks, history toolbar, etc.

Can i still get back that information?

Greetings everyone,

Firefox is my preferred browser and I really prefer the Firefox Engine over Chromium that most other browsers use.

I want to install a backup browser that runs the Firefox Engine in case my Firefox browser has a problem.

I searched a lot and I thought installing this would be the best option: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/developer/

However, I’m worried that installing the Firefox developer edition will change my Firefox installation…

I am currently having problems with my Firefox browser. For example often if I type something into the google search box at the right of the address bar and hit return nothing happens until I go down and select Bing instead of the google setting. Also in hotmail (I am on a desktop) if I go to reply, the original is now ether twice. This does not happen if I use Google browser. But I prefer Firefox as I have used it for years.

My concern is if I delete Firefox and reinstall it, I may lose some of the settings or bookmarks that I have set over the years.

Any suggestions? Please simple as i am old and not computer savvy.

Your help would be so appreciated. I am currently on Firefox 107.0 (64 bit)

Thanks, Anthony

The solution of physically copying the Profiles folder seems to be officially endorsed by Mozilla but when I tried it, FF failed to start up displaying an error message that it could not find my profile and closing. I am trying to set up a new PC for my wife's exclusive use, so the Profiles folder in question was from a shared PC with both of us having our own user accounts. The new PC doesn't have multiple user accounts, so I wondered if this might be something to do with it?

I can provide copies of the two Profiles folders but the original is quite big!

Thanks in advance, Simon

I've been experiencing weird downloads whenever I startup firefox. My antivirus prevents the download, and says that firefox.exe is the application responsible. I will include an image of the antivirus(Kaspersky) report. Deleting and reinstalling firefox seemed to fix the problem, but it returned after sometime; even when I just used youtube on firefox(I've tried this atleast 3 different times now). I am not sure if this is caused by one of my extensions, or if there is something else I've done to cause this. I'd just like to know if there is a way to fix it?

I am on Firefox version 102. It assures me I am up to date. My credit union insists I must be on version 107 to log in. I was able to download and install version 107, but it gives me a different icon and none of my bookmarks are there. It is like I installed it new rather than upgraded. I have no bookmarks, setting, etc.

So, after years of higher-than-normal security in Firefox (64-bit, Win 7) and accompanying problems in loading some pages, I decided to refresh (hoping to reset and have most/all pages load and display fully).

Well, tried refreshing and didn't see the bookmarks saved. Read about "Old Firefox Data" folder and thought I could retrieve anything I needed later. Deleting and reinstalling Firefox has resulted in the "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." windowed message.

Repeated uninstalls and reinstalls failed. Tried copying the "ng0ledtz.default-##########" from the "Old Firefox Data" folder into the C:\Users\username\Appdata\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles folder with no success.

Please help.
