Hello,

It started last night: Firefox stopped working.

I've been trying to reinstall it for 4 hours now and each time I do so, it crashes first "hmm for some reason blabla" then I have to install it another way from the same website and it says "your download was interrupted"

I can see the firefox logo on my desktop after i install it but a blue circle just goes round and round.

I ve uninstalled and reinstalled it 50 times, it changes nothing. cleared the caches also.

the other weird thing is that windows doesnt detect when i uninstall firefox. the picture is still there an hour after the fact as if the uninstalling was still happening

Please help me, i dont want to be stuck with google chrome for ever !

for some reason i cant interact with firefox. the mouse cant click on it. it freezes.

Is there a pocket-free build of firefox available for download? Before you say, you can just disable it, I already have. In addition to that I've blocked the update/api url as well. I want it removed completely, I strong feel mozilla should make it opt-in or provide a pocket free build.

I was thinking perhaps there is a regulatory constraint on of the builds here that I could install, then change back to english?

Any help would be appreciated.

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! =)

Every day I get a Firefox popup that says, "Firefox cannot download the latest version. Download the latest version and we will help you install it". Sometimes the popup appears immediately after I open my browesr, and sometimes it appears after I've been using the browser for several hours.

I've been doing the daily download and install, but I want to know what's causing this. I'm using a Late 2015 21.5" iMac running macOS Catalina Version 10.15.7. Firefox is Version 82.0b4, set as default browser with automatic updates turned on. I've been running Beta versions of Firefox for >2 years and have not had problems with updates before this. Thanks for any suggestions and solutions!

September 22, 2020 Firefox, I recently allow an update of the Firefox browser. It was the worst decision I have ever made regarding my computer. Will you PLEASE give directions to reverse it back to the way it was? The thought has occurred to me that maybe I got a fake Firefox update. That surprises me if I did. I all ways check for another confirmation before do anything. I have considered going to a previous date but I my lose even more data doing that. Has Firefox had any recent updates? Please respond to this email and advise me what I can do if it indeed a fake update. Is it possible to delete the update? I feel that I lost the computer I was so satisfied with while I was using Firefox. A long time Firefox fan, Charles Shaw

Downloading from the site Puzzle Society is incorrect. Image is grossly enlarged and showing only a fraction of the puzzle. The minimization button will allow zooming out but only zoom out the whole content box not the interior box itself. The contents of the box again is enlarged and only partially represents the crossword puzzle.

Firefox download location error

I have been facing this problem for quite sometimes. I have set the download location of Firefox browser to the Download folder of my laptop /home/inferni/Downloads. But sometimes when I download any file the file gets downloaded to a different location of my laptop /tmp/mozilla_inferni0/<filename> . This gets really annoying when I have to work on the file and it is nowhere to be found in the download location of my laptop and then I have to open the browser and track the file via the download section.

I tried to reset the download location and even reinstalled the browser but of no use. Earlier I used to work on ubuntu 18.04 LTS and then I switched to Fedora 32 but still the problem persists.

Thank you!

I've exported/imported firefox settings before (bookmarks, etc) but this time I didn't get a chance to export before my computer blew up. So when I logged on to Firefox on my new computer, I didn't have my password. It forced me to reset my password....but then none of my bookmarks transferred over. I thought they would be tied to my login and I could still recover them without the files from my old hard drive. That doesn't seem right to me, what am I missing? How do I recover the bookmarks saved on my Firefox login? I had soooo many....

thanks in advance!

Hello I currently have firefox installed in my C drive. I want to move it to my SSD but I cant seem to find a way to do so. I tried uninstalling it to give me the option to select where I want to install it but whenever I launch the installer the only option it gives me is to re-install firefox and it does so in my C drive, no option to install it into my SSD.
