Hello there. I tried to update Firefox to 58.01, but since updating my antivirus appears to block the firefox.exe.

I uninstalled Firefox completely, then tried to reinstall it but again my antivirus blocked it before I could open firefox.exe

I reinstalled Firefox again, this time disabling my antivirus and Firefox.exe appeared to work again, I was browsing and redownloading my addons. Once the antivirus enabled itself again after 10 minutes, the same problem happened. Firefox shortcuts couldn't find the Firefox.exe, and in the main Mozilla folder, firefox.exe had become firefox.exe.sig

When trying to uninstall it after this happens, I can't uninstall it through normal procedures unless I rename firefox.exe.sig to firefox.exe (which is also unable to run, says it isn't the proper version when it is)

Would appreciate some help here, thank you

I have Firefox Version 38.05 on Windows 7 and have refreshed, tried enabling a new HTTP cache.checked out the add-ons and still having the same problems The above statement about slow loading on my Firefox occurs on my desktop , but not on my laptop Windows 7. I Have tried all the recommended solutions and so far nothing works. Is there a possibility that some other programs could be in conflict with Firefox? This problem has been ongoing for several months and my patience is wearing thin. Any suggestions, fixes or advice? Thank you

I turned on Firefox this morning (after a Microsoft update/shut down last night). Heading to my usual pages where my logins/passwords come up automatically, I discovered the boxes were empty - they are usually filled by autofill; these are login pages to my blog, Amazon, eBay etc. I had also been logged out of my Firefox account, so I logged back in (I had remembered that password, luckily) Checking Options/security - show saved logins, I found absolutely no list of saved logins at all. (Horror!) I synced Firefox - still no list of saved logins Where have they gone and how do I get them back?

Hoping someone can help 'cos it's about five years' worth of saved logins.

I'm using firefox developers edition, and after one of the updates (unsure which one) it does not restarted after updating. After I click on Firefox icon I can see two firefox processes in task manager, but after some time they just quit, without showing any window or even error message. I tried to enter safe mode by pressing "shift" while starting firefox - no result, processes quit before even showing dialog about entering safe mode. I tried to uninstall & install firefox back - still the same result. I removed profiles in "cd %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\" - still the same. There are two records in windows logs upon each start attempt:

Chugging along just fine as usual, in the early part of today(using Firefox several times). With Firefox closed, I went to open it and it took ages to open fully. When it did open, the familiar toolbars were there, including my Bookmarks toolbar. The Bookmarks toolbar is showing the icons of sites that I have put there, and it is showing my self-created folders on it (containing various website shortcuts etc). The only difference is that the folders are grey instead of yellow. However, nothing is actually HAPPENING. No matter what I click on, I am not reaching any website whatsoever. I cannot actually go anywhere at all with Firefox. My internet connection is working just fine. I can open email software and I can open (and use) Internet Explorer. Why has my Firefox just stopped functioning on my Windows 7 PC? It is Firefox Quantum ESR 60.2.0esr. I am typing this support request on my Windows 10 laptop where Firefox Quantum 62.0 is working ok!

I'm running into some problems with accessing Hotmail as for some reason it will insist on adding a OWA like so https://outlook.live.com/owa/ and I'm being blocked from accessing Microsoft support at as Firefox Claims that Microsoft support at https://support.microsoft.com/ hasn't configured their website correctly which I find hard to believe. Can this be switched off or bypassed as I need to know what's going on with the Hotmail account?

I have uninstalled Firefox 40, deleted the profiles folder, reinstalled Firefox, restored Firefox 40 and profiles from a backup and I am still getting this message. I even downgraded to a previous version and restored the profiles for that version and still this nasty error crops up on anything I try to do. I cannot find any info on where other files files are stored that I am not restoring or changing that are still lingering. I have never seen anything like this.This is after spending 3 weeks completely updating and changing Firefox to suit my needs and dumping Chrome,this is what I get. It appears I will have to move back to chrome as I need a browser that works. I have tried everything I can find regarding this to no avail. I am really upset over this especially after all the time spent moving from Chrome to Firefox. I really need an answer or I will have to delete Firefox and move back to Chrome as much as I hate to do that. It still works!! Anyone have an answer for this? Is their no one at Mozilla to help with this? Help!

Firefox just did an automatic update to version 65.0 (Firefox Quantum, 32 bit) and ALL of my websites are blocked with the message, "Your connection is not secure".

This is what I get back when I try to access Google: "The owner of www.google.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website."

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox may only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.


Even your own website is stopped with this message: "The owner of qsurvey.mozilla.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website."

...and Firefox will NOT allow me to bypass this warning, making the browser useless. I'm using Chrome to send you this message.

Since today (6/10/2020) I can't run Firefox on Windows 10. Windows says it can't find the route to access, but even if I go to the path and double-click the .exe file, it still says it can't find it. I'm using Windows 10 in spanish, so there's some sort of alias for C:\Program Files\, but it should still work when executing the .exe directly. I've tried reinstalling, uninstalling and reinstalling and uninstalling, deleting my profiles and reinstalling, all to no avail.
