How do I install Firefox on a new Windows 10 PC?

I have an older PC that I have been using with Win 7 as its OS. It's still there on one of the three HDDs that's in the PC. I have since added a fourth drive, which is a WD Blue SSD which is 560 MB/s big, and has Windows 10 installed and running on it, when I start up this PC.

How do I go about replacing the Microsoft software with Firefox and Thunderbird? The Win 10 software is different than Win 7 so I don't know how to use very well. And the Win 10 instructions don't exactly match up with the Win 10 that is installed on my PC, so if some-body could list some of the steps that are more accurate than what MS has given, I would appreciate it.

Hello, When they said (in swedish) You have one step more before you installation is finished and that is to connect another device so I tried to connect my mobile and I think I succeeded. But, on the computer it seems that I can't find the application. It isn't there so I have tried to download it again but that must be wrong because than I must do everything all over again and I guess it than isn't compatible with my mobile. Why is it so very hard to download?? What must I do? Yours, Marie

Hello, this is getting annoying, i already reinstalled Firefox and again i get this message in top right corner: "Firefox can't update". I have checked in setting: automatically install updates. However i disabled background service. I don't want to use it. And automatic updates are still enabled, so there shouldn't be reason for it - to not work. Thanks for answer.

I had to reinstall my Firefox web browser because of the XPCom error I kept receiving. For one of my jobs that I work remotely, I had my information saved on my old Firefox web browser. Now that I had to reinstall the web browser, my information is lost and I do not know how to retrieve. My question is, once a password is saved, you guys on the backend have the ability to retrieve it? Please let me know as this would be greatly helpful for my job.

I downloaded the new improved Firefox and all my pictures posted this year are gone. I asked Mozilla for help and of course like I thought an effing robot must have answered me. This is because Mozilla washed their hands of the problem and the robot (obviously uneducated) gave me a song and dance about how this is MY fault and Mozilla is completely blameless. Mozilla is using the old operator error routine we hear so often when a company can’t be bothered to help a customer. Now I am faced with $50 an hour to have a TRUSTED computer repair person to sort this out. Don’t ever ask Mozilla for help, their uneducated robot will just say it’s your problem. Perhaps I should have just stayed with Google Chrome, at least they tried to give an intelligent answer and not give up on their customer and blame the customer for the problem. I think this is on page 35 of the Mozilla customer service manual. When you don’t know the answer just blame the user and move on to a simpler question. An uneducated answer is better than no answer at all. Let the user pay someone to fix the problem caused by Mozilla. Good luck if you ask them anything, best not to waste your time and go to someone private or a grade 9 student that knows more about Mozilla and computers than Mozilla itself does.

I should have mentioned that the uneducated answer provided could not even be replied to. A good way for the uneducated robot to hide, you get one try and that’s it. Then as I said they moved on to something easy and that does not require any brain power. Mozilla might be around for a while longer, however if this is the way they want to treat clients they may not last too long.

Dear Colleague,

  I am on a Surface Pro 3 running Windows 10 64-bit.     I have been running Firefox for 15 years without a problem. So,  I saw that there was an upgrade to Firefox, and I downloaded it and started installing.    I have completed this process many times in the past.
  When I started running the upgrade, I received the following error,  XUI Runner window that says  "Error Platform version '78.0.2' is not compatible with minVersion>=78.0.1 maxVersion <=78.0.1.  I checked the wiki and the bug list but did not see any bugs.    
  I have not uninstalled and reinstalled yet because I do not want to lose my bookmarks, history, etc. if I can help it.  
  Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you Marj

I'm using Firefox 78.0.2 and i keep getting notices to upgrade. But the last time I upgraded, Firefox changed the locations of my tabs from below the address bar to above the address bar and also changed the behavior of the address bar. It took me a couple of weeks to find the answers and get things back the way they were. I don't want to upgrade Firefox because I have no idea what it might change this time. Is there a way to keep Firefox from sending me upgrade notices when I don't want them?
