When I click below link in Chrome it downloads, BUT in Firefox it just refreshes page...

This occurs on 2 machines I have, HP Win 8.1 and new Lenovo Win 10

Link as an example-Chrome will download like normal, Firefox, must right click and open new tab to get it.

I want to install Firefox 80 to an empty custom folder I made called C:\Internet\Firefox. Upon clicking the installer, it states that I've already installed Firefox (picture 1) and I'm not given a choice on where to install it. I'm not 100% sure where that installation installed but I found a Firefox 80 install in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox. I don't want it there, I want it in C:\Internet\FIrefox. How do I custom install when the Installer won't give me any choices and very little information?

Dear Mozilla Community,

I was browsing on the Internet, when Firefox showed up a download window for f.txt. I then clicked away that window. I could not find a f.txt and my antivirus did not complain. If someone could tell me what this is it would be very kind. Also what I should do next.

Logins and passwords not imported in Version 81

To start off, I've never used the sync feature. Not that I think it won't work, I just haven't trusted the cloud enough yet. That being said, I know my logins and passwords are stored in the "profile" in the appdata of mozilla firefox, on this local computer. To my knowledge, this information is stored in the "logins.json" file located in my default profile. Up until now, I have had no issues retrieving the information I need. However, after this morning, when Version 81 was installed, I visited a website where I needed a particular login. I normally have Firefox automatically populate this information, on this particular site. However, since that did not happen this time, I checked my "logins and passwords" page, only to find "No logins found" on the sidebar, and "No synced logins found" in the main space, with instructions on how to sync from other devices or import from other browsers. Since I have not had a login before (for Firefox), I created an account to see if I could import the information from a previous version. However, only other browsers were listed, and I can't sync from another device, as the information is stored on this machine. Creating an account has also allowed me to post here...

I have opened the logins.json file with notepad, and the logins-backup.json file, and both are full of information. Of course it's not plain text, but the information is there. I can also open these files with Firefox, however, it doesn't recognize the file as the "logins and passwords" file, it just displays the encrypted information in a different (html?) format.

Any advice on how I can import these 55+ logins and passwords without re-creating or changing each one of them? Thanks.

I just got a new Mac. I've had Firefox on my old Mac for years.

During installation on the new machine, I must have made a mistake/been too hasty.

In the first instance, I dragged the Firefox icon into my Apps folder, but since it didn't appear in my list of applications, I tried to run it from the .dmg package directly.

Since then, I realised I'm not supposed to do this. So I've deleted everything Firefox from my computer and restarted it several times.

However, each time I now re-download the Firefox installer and go through the steps to instal it, the same thing happens: it only ever runs from the .dmg package. Whenever I delete the .dmg from my computer Firefox stops running.

Can someone help? Thank you!

I want to download/update to Firefox v.80.01 for Windows 64-bit, but every time I try to download anything at all, Firefox pushes 81.0 on me (just released today), which I do NOT want. I'm running the latest "Extended Support" release (79.0 64-bit). I'm 80 and do NOT want to test software. Do I have to keep running v.79 if I don't want v.81, or can I download the version I want?

How can I get Firefox v.80.01?

Thanx, Anne F.

I have been getting notification to update Firefox but every time I try, it won't work. I have tried from the menu. I have tried updating from mozilla.org. I have tried downloading a new copy. Either the download doesn't work or the execution doesn't work. I temporarily disabled my virus protection and firewall just in case, but that didn't help. My next thought was to delete the Firefox copy I have. But what if I continue to not be able to install? Can anyone help with something other than what the website suggests? Thank you!

Today i opened mozilla, a troubleshooting message in english (my browser is set in italian) popped up, and then it asked me to Refresh Firefox (I had no idea it meant "back to factory settings")

Nothing difficult, i've re-installed mozilla last week after formatting HDD without a problem.

Now, instead, there's nothing.

Logged in, synced, nothing. Mozilla is brand new.

Tried to copy datas and paste them in the profile folder: nothing. Tried to copy the folder (the one inside the Old Firefox Data folder) into the profile folder: nothing.

Wouldn't be a huge mess, wasn't for the hundreds of password i've saved.

Thanks for the help! =)
