Up until just a few days ago I could download pdfs from websites through Firefox. As far as I know I did not upgrade or change anything. I followed all of the tutorials, the Troubleshooting Information tips, deleted profile.ind files, added the PDF viewer 0.6.39 and that does not work.

I am on a Mac, OS 10.6.8

Firefox 17

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.

I downloaded version 17 today- -i checked it several times-and tried unpacking it 3 different times--thinking it shorted out somewhere and didn't tell me Facebook has been telling me for weeks that I have an older version of the browser that doesn't support FB and I should upgrade. Tried to add a persona and get this message This Persona requires Firefox 3.6. You are currently using Firefox 3.5.7..

Please help! I can't watch your videos because dial up is so basic. I am home with health problems so going out now to coffee shops, etc not possible. Thank you!

Website automatically downloaded Firefox while I was looking for information. I think full computer version may have downloaded into iPhone5. although website shows App folder for installation process, in the iPhone5 the screen instructions say to open the file with Evernote. Enote says the file is too large to download. No App folder shows on the screen. When i open usual App folder, nothing there. So, Firefox appears downloaded but not installed, I think. How do I get this large file out of my phone? File does not show in the iPhone5 program list, probably because it has not been opened, so the usual delete process will not work. Please help.

I have installed the latest version of Firefox on my windows XP Pro 32 bit box 3 times and uninstalled 3 times to fix the message that the Profile is missing and your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible. I am admin on the box and I can install the download and remove it all day long but I can't get the profile.ini to be created. I've looked at all the forums and they don't address the missing profile at all or that it never gets created. I really need this to work as IE won't work for me.

I have an up to date Firefox 17.0 on my PC running Windows 7. I have a problem in that I had cleaned out all my bookmarks in IE and want to import the new ones into Firefox. I could not do that so I decided to uninstall Firefox. Went to Programs and it was listed but when I went to uninstall, it said it had already been uninstalled (???) So - I just updated Firefox and no bookmarks appeared at all. When I imported them, it only brought in about 8 bookmarks and there are perhaps 30 or so. What did I do wrong? I am rather frustrated and would actually love to uninstall and do a clean reinstall but can't! HELP!

I used to be able to download files between 108 and 116MB without any problem. Lately, When I try to save files of this size, my download stops at exactly 60.0MB. I get the 'download completed' message and the scan for viruses starts, even though it saw that the file was 108MB. When I try to unzip the downloaded file, my computer won't allow me to because the file is 'corrupted'.

Is there a setting in Firefox, or maybe in Windows that is causing this?

I have a mandate to update Firefox across every machine in my enterprise within 48 hours of a new release. I have been doing this with intranet distribution tools (SCCM, etc.) but because of the frequency of Firefox updates this has become laborious.

I've been looking at the about:config settings in the "app.update" category (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Category:Preferences) and some of those seem promising. As a test, I set "app.update.silent" to TRUE and "app.update.interval" to 60 (seconds) on a legacy version of Firefox. I restarted the browser, let it sit for a few minutes then restarted it again expecting the latest update to apply, but nothing happened.

How can I script or automate via Firefox's internal settings the same update process that is triggered when users manually go to Help > About?
