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.

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?

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.

Hi. Previously I installed Firefox on Ubuntu with command `sudo apt install firefox`. I'm using Firefox 88.0 for Ubuntu. I want to update it to the latest version. When I try following commands: `sudo apt update` `sudo apt install firefox`

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.

Does the "Update Available" popup screen shown in the uploaded image come from Firefox? It keeps coming back it seems every time I open Firefox. I clicked "Update" a few times, but Firefox never got updated, as far as I can tell. I tried turning off NordVPN but that does not allow an update to occur. Now I just click "Dismiss" if I need to see what's behind the popup. You have to click either "Update" or Dismiss" to get it to go away. There is no "x" at the upper right on the popup screen, which would allow you to close the screen without clicking either "Update" or "Dismiss". I worry that by clicking on either I am downloading some malware. William F Briel

I got a new Lenovo Laptop and cant get Firefox to load a webpage. Here's what happens and what I've done 1. I install Firefox and during install get error below, VCRUNTIME140_1.dll Not Found. I then click OK and Firefox Installs but when I load it no webpages will come up just a black screen no indications it is even trying to load the page, no error message. It does nothing. Cant even open Google.com 2. I looked in MS forums and they say to install Visual C++. Did every x86 and X64 version I could find. Still have the problem even after uninstalling Firefox and reboot. 3 Have McAfee, and took Firefox off the Safe list then put it back on. 4. Went to try and find the file but can't on a reputable website. So I looked for this file on my Dell Laptop and Asus Desktop. Both have Firefox installed and it works fine. Get this, NONE of my other two computers have that exact file name anywhere. VCRUNTIME140_1.DLL! They have 140.DLL and a few other 140.dll with different variation but no 140_1.dll? So how does Firefox run on 2 other computers without this DLL but not on this new one? They are all Windows 10 Would appreciate any help. Seems to be a Firefox or Lenovo Issue just not sure. If anyone know how to get the DLL from MS let me know.
