Dear Devs,

Firefox prevents me from zipping a folder and download it within google drive.

This is regardless my cookies settings as explained here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1312393 and regardless enhanced protection settings as explained here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1305970#answer-1353590.

I will now turn to using google chrome.

Firefox on ChromeOS won't start after install

Hi,

I've tried to install the desktop version of Firefox on my brother's new Chromebook, using the instructions here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos I enabled Linux, installed Flatpak, and installed Firefox. But when clicking the Firefox button nothing happens, a circle on the program icon just keeps rotating endlessly. When in the terminal, using the command flatpak run org.mozilla.firefox (which I got from https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.mozilla.firefox ) I get the following error message: bwrap: Can't mount proc on /newroot/proc: Operation not permitted error: ldconfig failed, exit status 256

I also followed the guide here: https://techpp.com/2021/12/02/install-firefox-on-chromebook/ which is a slight variation of the same procedure, but the same thing happens (circle on icon, error message in terminal).

Did I do something wrong? Is this an error with Flatpak?

I downloaded Firefox on my Chromebook using the instructions found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos However, I have not been able to update it since. It says updates are disabled in Firefox itself, and I have not been able to fine what files I need to update via Terminal to get the most current version. (I have been able to update other files through Terminal). Can someone please point me in the direction of how to update Firefox if installed in the manner described in the link?

Been desperately trying to get Firefox to run on my Acer Chromebook 315 through Linux. The app store version just isn't cutting it. I followed these instructions below as best as I could installing linux and flatpack. I even ran a power wash and tried again.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos

The icon comes up in my dash, but is gray and endlessly loading. Not sure what else I can do. I'm pretty my system is compatible. Is there another way? Am I missing something?

Thank you,

A

I was trying to disable GMX email add-on which seems to be embedded permanently. I have found about every place on my desktop and on Firefox to no avail. Their page keeps coming up as the browser window. In the process, I have lost access to my Firefox browser window. I have followed all the instructions given (btw: Microsoft no longer has the "install any" notation shown on your sample App setting screen). Still no browser screen appearing even though the Firefox is on the preference list both on your site and MS app site. All the browswer files seem to be located under Setting: Applications: Firefox. So I have browser search ability right now without reloading Edge or ???. Your thoughts please. Carolyn Tompkins [email removed from public]

I received a message to upgrade Firefox on my 2011 iMac. When I tried to do that I was told that it could not be installed. Also happening is that I get an error message "Secure Connection Failed" when I try to access some sites (but not all) with Firefox. I can access these sites with Safari.

Has my 2011 computer (like yours truly!) reached a point where it can no longer be upgraded? Any help/insight would be appreciated!

Hi I'm running a Mac - macOS Monterey 12.1 (21C52) and using Firefox 96.0.2 (64-bit).

Yesterday I wiped my Mac and set it up as brand new. I downloaded my saved Bookmarks and Passwords to Safari and then tried to add my Bookmarks and Passwords to Firefox but the option to import "Other Data" is not showing (see attachment).

Anyone know why this is specifically not showing up regardless of whether I try and import from Safari or Chrome?
