All of a sudden after one of firefox's MANY "updates" I am now getting this error when trying to download to my Desktop which is where I want my downloads to go:

"C:\Users\*********\Desktop\***** could not be saved, because you cannot change the contents of that folder."

I haven't changed anything, downloaded any useless plugins that just slow down firefox slower than it already is, and I haven't done anything to warrant this error. I refuse to set another folder because my desktop is where I want my downloads to go. They are easy to delete because they are right there and I don't have to open multiple folders to delete files.

I have been using Firefox as my browser for at least a couple years. I no long ever use IE9. Should I uninstall it? If I do, are there other programs on my PC that will be affected? If I should dump it, what is the best way to do it? Win 7 64-bit is my OS.

I have a mac powerbook G4 OSX 10.5.8 I USED to have a Firefox browser, but I got sucked in by an invitation to update, didn't realize that the circle with a line through it meant, "don't try to put this in your computer" but it must mean something like that because even tho I later tried to load a different update for a Firefox browser that said for mac osx10.5 or later, and that came up with a circle with a line through it too. How do I find the Firefox version that is compatible with my laptop? The old one was working just fine until I tried the update!!! Please advise.

My email downloads, mainly the small pictures, 350 KB or less will download fast just as usual. Recently though the large picture files, 1 MG or larger will show slow download speeds and will not fully download. Using GoDaddy for email, checked with teck support and trouble was not on their servers. When opening the file only about 15% of the picture will download and the remaining percentage appears a grey tone. Cleaned up old download files, downloaded most recent updates, Firefox 17. Still no luck with the larger downloads. Anywhere I can adjust the download speeds of my larger email files? Any clues as to what is going on?

Thanks, Redfield

I'm SO sick and tired and completely fed up with Mozilla's BRAINDEAD BRAINDEAD BRAINDEAD update policy for Firefox, and I want to get out of this madness NOW -- so, is there an easy and straight-forward way to "downgrade" (well, kind of) Firefox 17 Desktop to 10.0.11 ESR, so that all settings and customizations and add-ons remain functional? Does simply installing the ESR package over the installed desktop release work? Did anybody try already?

Impossible to uninstall v16. Automatically re-installs with wrong language (afrikaans) despite manual uninstall of rem Moreover keeps freezing windows explorer.

I Downloaded and installed v17 beta on my desktop (W7/64). OK I noticed later that the version had changed without doing anything (moved back to v16.0.2, and displayed in Afrikaans).

Note that a second drawer is installed under Program files X86 (Mozilla maintenance service)

I uninstalled both drawers (Firefox & mozilla maintenance service) several times through windows control panel. Every times remain some leftovers (e.g desktop icon, and the drawers listed above , but they are generally empty) I tried cleaning registry afterwards (Tuneup utilities, Ccleaner) and even reboot the machine)

And it's always the same story: Firefox icon re-appears on my desktop, and can be normally opened . The software is always displayed in afrikaan language .

Moreover, I noticed (when I try to open the drawer (program files X86) that windows explorer freezes.

I had same problems on 2 windows 7 partitions, same computer. But never under windows 8

I really could do with a bit of help. It looks as though this piece of software is corrupt, and I really don't understand how it can manage to reappear a couple of minutes after being uninstalled . Otherwise it's not a genuine Firefox version ?

Best regards

Philippe cante

I made screenshots of unistall/cleaning/opening process if that's of any interest to you But I can't attach a file!

Trying to update flash via the browser since that seems to be the only way now. But it refuses. The last 2 updates, every time I have tried, the Download is immediately canceled and no matter what I do it will not download. Last update I had to get a friend to send me the file directly.

I recently had my PC service to remove severe malware. I had Firefox installed prior to service but when I got my machine back the icon looked different & I couldn't open Firefox. I downloaded Firefox again & it appeard to go thru the installation process but when I tried to open I received a dialog block that says location not found. I tried to uninstall Mozilla but am unable to do so. I am running Vista & IE9 (which apparently does not have a safe mode. The kicker is, I can't back up to a earlier time as the back ups were wiped while removing the malware.

I never use beta. First thing I always do is disable autoupdate, and download but let me know and all that stuff. I have Never check for updates, checked. I was just using my browser on a website and it started downloading, I couldn't find a way to stop it. I clicked my Help/About Firefox toolbar to see what version I am running, it says 16.01 so this has happened before, because it should be, old like Version 10. It also says "Restart to update". Under that it says, "You are currently on the release update channel". I went to about:config after searching for a solution and looked at a few app.update things they seem to be proper like false. First I want to know can I delete the update before I close and restart, or after I close and before I restart so it does not update ? I like my current version, well actually I HATE updates, they always mess my junk up. Let alone this wants to do it by itself even though It should be set not to. Second What do I need to change or look at to force it not to update or download or any of that ? My update history goes back to version 11, says new version 11 installed April 25th, 2012. (I have used FF for many years.) All the others, 12.0, 15.0.1, 16.0.1 and now 17.0 are security updates. Although I have created a few new profiles this year, BUT the first thing I do is tell it no updating and of course go through ALL the settings.
