Frequently after an upgrade my FF (91.0b7 (64-bit)) on Win 10 reverts to the previous version. I only notice it because I start getting prompts to upgrade.

Frankly, I'm pretty clueless and sick of Windoze but determined to not resort to Chrome or hEdge. ANY suggestions to help figure what's happening (and hopefully how to prevent it) will be greatly appreciated.

When I was using version 88.x, Firefox had not crashed for years. Then all of a sudden, Firefox would crash several times a day. I looked and Firefox had updated me to ver 89.0. But I let it ride. Then Firefox about a month ago, Firefox stsrted to crash EVERY DAY. Then one day it crashed EIGHT TIMES IN A ROW and I mean when I hit RESTART, IT WOULD CRASH. I tried to revert to rel 88 but Mozilla WILL NOT ALLOW US TO REVERT BACK TO A PREVIOUS VERSION. When you do, the PROFILE gives you TWO OPTIONS: 'EXIT or CREATE A NEW PROFILE.' Certainly you do not want to CREATE A NEW PROFILE as you will LOSE, your history, add-ons, Bookmarks, EVERYTHING and you see a WHITE Firefox screen with nothing. So I choose EXIT and tried to put up with the CRAPPY ver 89. BUT FIREFOX KEPT CRASHING. TODAY IT CRASHED SIX TIMES IN A ROW......When I checked the VERSION, YOU HAD UPGRADED TO VER 91.0b6 (64-bit) AND IT IS NO BETTER.

WHAT IN THE HECK IS GOING ON. I DO NOT WANT TO LEARN CHROME OR EDGE AS I HAVE USED FIREFOX SINCE VERSION 1.0.

DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO GO BACK AND KEEP YOUR OLD PROFILE, FLACKY OR NOT AS THAT IS BETTER THAN 'RESTARTING' FIREFOX ALL THE TIME.

MY VERSION 88 NEVER FAILED.

Hello,

I'm not able to get a download popup when I left click to download (anything) - only if I right click and select save file as i'm able to save it and download the file - something prevents the auto download from flowing properly.

if i run on safe mode there is no problem and i can download it - I did all of the explained here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems I also disabled all of the the add-ons or disabled them one by one but it didn't help to locate the problem - still can't download on regular mode.

I refreshed firefox, deleted & reinstalled it and with a new profile its the same as safe mode - no problem. I copied the files from the old profile to the new but the problem returns.

Any suggestions on how to locate the problem?

thanks!

Hello,

We use FireFox MSI file to push out to all my users that I have on my Azure Domain. But constantly I find myself having to download new MSI packages monthly in order for our users to keep there profile intact and to update there Firefox. If I do not do this, users profiles they have on their PC will be wiped cleaned and they will have to start over new and then manually update FireFox. Only to have there dreams crushed when Azure pushes out the older version of FireFox the next day when they attempt to sign-in and sync with the domain.

Is there a way to prevent this manual process from me of uploading new MSI files monthly in order for our users to use FireFox with no issue? Strong pain point for any of my users that prefer to use FireFox, but Google Chrome and Edge does not have this issue.

I have an old PC desktop which I would like to replace with a newer model. I want to get a used one with Windows 7 on it. I know Windows 7 is no longer supported but I have a lot of old software that I use, some not often, and have no desire to purchase new software. I was told that I could not download Firefox onto a newer PC with Windows 7. Is this true? I do have a laptop with Windows 10 that I use for on line ordering, etc. I like the desktop as it has a decent keyboard and mouse.

I tried to read my email today after a few days of not being on my computer. It wasn't working correctly so I shut down the browser to try again. Firefox is no longer on my computer, the shortcut is broken and I can't find it in the list of programs. I tried to reinstall and at the end it said: Hmmm. For some reason, we could not install Firefox. Choose OK to start over." I shut down my computer to try again and get the same result. Help! Is Microsoft blocking Firefox?

My install of Firefox was somehow corrupted. I was instructed by FF tech support to download the latest "Nightly" build, extract it to my "Downloads" folder, and launch it using the following command:

MOZ_ACCELERATED=0 MOZ_WEBRENDER=0 ~/Downloads/firefox/firefox

This opens a working install of "Nightly" (with purple & blue firefox icon), but as soon as I close it, the icon goes away. The program is not recognized as "installed" so it does not appear in a search for installed apps. And if I right-click on its icon while running, "Pin to taskbar" is not an option.

"Nighly" is working (I'm using it to type this) and I even have it Synced to my account, but the ONLY way to launch it is via the Terminal CLI. :(

My broken copy of "Firefox" is still listed as installed, but is unusable.

HELP! TIA

On one computer I have deleted everything from Firefox including the folders within Apps Roaming except for one folder. There in one folder "41A66E7EE5E1" within Profiles which I cannot delete. It holds the files prefs.js and sessionCheckpoints.json which were created at 20/02/2021 and I cannot delete those.

My new installation is dated 24/07/2021.

There is nothing in the properties of those two files to suggest an issue. I do find however that when I seek to change the Property/Security to Administrator (I should be able to do that) I receive a dialog box that "the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable".

Please advise on how I address this.

It says "firefox is already the newest version (88.0+build2-0ubuntu0.20.04.1)." But I know version 89 and 90 are released.

I attached "About Firefox" window. There is no update button.
