I am using Opensuse 15.0 and also 15.1. Haven't made a complete move over yet. There is a recurring situation when 4GB rx and 4GB tx movement that I cannot account for hits my 15.0 about once a month. Today it happened again. Using vnstat, I found it happened between 10.00 - 11.00. :

h  rx (MiB)   tx (MiB)      h  rx (MiB)   tx (MiB)      h  rx (MiB)   tx (MiB)

Searched the cookies, one site i cannot recognize came out; "consensu.org". Did a search, there were several, example: https://cmp.teads.mgr.consensu.org/index.html, that served blank pages in firefox. Is there anything odd here? Is there a way I can extract all the cookies with date & time so that I can check against previous occurrences of the 4GB data movements (I have a few records).

I've had a lot of crashes, some just firefox, some the whole computer. In process of migrating to new machine so wasn't overly concerned. But after a restart today, I found I could not get firefox to open at all. After finding the system searching for firefox.com, I checked program files\mozilla firefox and firefox.exe is not there. A search showed it not to be anywhere. Not ready to stop using this machine just yet. Any way to get firefox.exe reloaded without losing all my related stuff??

Had Aurora about 6 weeks, Firefox Aurora about 2 weeks and was working very well. Then starting about a few days ago, unable to update and also unable to download latest version from the your site.

Only other browser I use is Opera. won't use Chrome, or Explorer. Firefox is no better, and Firefox works on my system, no better and I like being on Aurora and getting latest ....until now..since it won't update.

Again, I only use Opera and Firefox Aurora, no other browsers. Was going to try Safari, but the agreement language for Windows PC's from Apple, was very user unfriendly.

Started w/FF 29 something.on Win XP (Home) SP3

Verified w/Task manager and PS that there is no other instance of FF. Occurs only in my profile, administrator and other users do not get this message.

The fix I used last time (uninstalling completely and reinstalling in Safe Mode) ***did not work in this instance***.

Firefox now version 33.1.1, all seems up to date but I still get that message. When I open Help > About it says I am at version 33.1.1 and to restart to upgrade...

Any ideas greatly appreciated.

(Had to create a new forum account to get back on here). Anyway, my Firefox add-ons said that my Adobe Reader 9 was out of date and should be upgraded. So I've downloaded the adobe install helper but the wretched thing won't execute. Just says this program has "stopped working" then Windows fails to find a solution. I should now explain that I've recently upgraded my Dell Vostro 410 computer from WinXP to Windows 7 Pro (32 bit). Most things are running fine, but not this Adobe installer. Anyone got any thoughts, it must have happened to others as well. (Going off to start the Christmas dinner now!).

My firefox browser will not open, so I can not try most of the solutions recommended. I do not want to lose stored information such as bookmarks and pass codes so would unstalling and reinstalling cause me to lose that information? I need to speak to a person to help with this, but do not know how to go about it. Should I be contacting Norton or Mozilla?

Hi,

I want the users to be able to update Firefox themselves. right now it says "Update failed. download the latest version" but when I do that that doesn't work either.

I already unblocked https://aus3.mozilla.org and ^.*mozilla.*$, but that doesn't work. From where do the updates come from? Can I get the update.xml myself?

The web filter we use is Websense Triton.

https://aus3.mozilla.org/update/3/Firefox/33.0.2/20141027150301/WINNT_x86-msvc/en-US/release/Windows_NT/update.xml this URL doesn't work.

shockwave flash 16.0.0.235 installed, it is a security risk, cannot update it

There is an outdated page on the Adobe Flash web site being blocked by Firefox 35.0.1 on Windows 7. Version 16..0.0.235 of Flash is labeled a security risk, "Always activate" is greyed out. I was on the Plugins page, and there I clicked the update now linktext. I was advised that all older versions of Flash in the version 11 range are blocked. Nowhere to go from there. (My screenshot has a piece off the Plugins page above the resulting page when I clicked on the indicated link.)

The outdated page being blocked was allowed and I was able to run through the download procedure, but in the end I had an error. I repeatedly tried downloading install_flashplayer16x32_mssd_aaa_aih.exe, which downloads OK, and when I run it it downloads and installs Adobe Flash, then says Finish and "There was an error."

Glary Utilities software updater updated Internet Explorer's Flash, said nothing of Firefox, now I know why. This is a mess.

I opened up firefox -p and went to the new blank profile I had created sometime back. It was happily running a fully-enabled version 11 of Flash (I bet that wouldn't last long as my browser bites me in the butt and disables it).

Firefox -p and I created a new profile today. It has this crippled version 16.0.0.235 of Flash.

It appears that Mozilla has an outdated page telling me that all old versions in the range of version 11 are blocked. No word there about the more recent versions.

From what else I've read, others are turning to other browsers and coming up with a bad Flash, too. I only have Firefox (well, Internet Exploder, which I discounted as a piece of rubbish ever since they came out with IE 7).

Any advice? Thank you.

I stupidly installed the "Update Firefox" virus. I used System Restore to get back most functionality, BUT: I lost all Bookmarks (incl. Backup), and there is something running in the background (moving circle) that I can't get rid of. I can use most programs, but that Circle is always in the background. I have run Malware Bytes, and Norton, both before and after the system restore . NEITHER RECOGNIZED THE VIRUS.

As it says in the title, I can't seem to download anything in Firefox anymore, aside from photos apparently. Zips files, videos, and program files always fail without even attempting to download. The download arrow pops up and that's about it. Add-ons just say that there was an error downloading and nothing else, except try again. Refresh Firefox doesn't work and neither does safe mode. Clean installs work, but only during the initial opening of the browser. If you close it and open it back up, it goes back to failing again.
