I am running Windows 7 64 bit. I was told on September 7 of this year that 42.0 would be released on November 3 and it would be available in a 64 bit version. I was prompted today (11/4) to upgrade to 42.0 with no option for a 64 bit version given. I assume by choosing to update my current 32 bit version of FF will be updated to 32 bit 42.0.

How do I obtain the Windows 64 bit version of FF and migrate to it from the 32 bit version I am currently running?

On one internet site, when I go to it, up in the left hand corner, a pop-up for flow player comes up, and it does not allow the site content to display. I have run my anti-virus program, as well as the anti-malware program, and nothing came up. It only occurs when I try to access the drudge report site. Upper left hand corner of page gets the small video window, and it blocks everything else on that page from coming up. Page works fine with Internet Explorer. I have put the Shockwave plug in on NEVER USE to no effect.

Had to reinstall Firefox after downloaded a 'make Firefox faster' option appeared from Mozilla as it completely crashed my internet accessibility. Message kept repeating I needed a proxy server address as Firefox connects via a proxy server. Had to finally resort to ATT to get me reconnected as update had changed my settings in Lan: all checked. Now if I try to download an add on it says it is installed, but is not - 41 acceptable add on - and if I click on tools> options Firefox crashes wi/no crash report window appearing; have to re click icon. Ditto options in menu. And will not accept click on options in customize, a hand appears and zero happens. Don't have ability to set my preferences, obviously. None of the sidebar options appear any more. I have no ad blocking evne after downloading and running ad block for 41. Firefox also crashes repeatedly. Have tried restart in Safe Mode, no difference. I am using XP and as many others have no interest in changing to 7 or 8 as long as laptop continues to function.

I have lost or chosen to fix FF in the past (Refresh). Today, something else is going on. I did a system restore to fix my DESKTOP only,

I also had a FF update (41.0.2). After I restored everything, some of my FF tools had to be installed. That shouldn't have anything to do with Microsoft Outlook. So, what I had to restore was Saved Password Manager, which is not Firefox. Even when I reinstalled this addon, my passwords came back, but not this time.

Do I have to do a refresh - or can I just install passwords, even though they are not saved in the FF manager?

I didn't attempt this, because I am exhausted, cannot see straight, and can't follow directions, because I'm too tired. And especially because nothing else is NOT working. Why would an update kick off ah addon? It's still compatible.

Thank you.

I have a personal webpage hosted by IPage - lynnesgenealogy.com. I receive monthly visitor statistics on that page. For the last two months I have received a shockingly large number of hits (over 20,000) on my website from Asia (most IP addresses trace to China and Japan but not all). When raising this issue with IPage I discovered that I can no longer print the statistics page as I have in the past. I have cleared all cookies, caches, history, etc, etc. In Explorer I can only print one page (the report is several pages long) at a time - but in Firefox I only get a blank page. What's the story?

Since I upgraded my Mac OS X to El Capitan, Firefox crashes every time I try to print from it. This happens in both safe mode and normal mode. I can print with no problem, however, from Safari. I have already tried refreshing Firefox, but this does not help. I also read in a forum that I should open my preference file and delete any lines beginning with "print_", but there are no such lines in my file.

Here are the last few crash IDs: 8DDA62A6-188D-4B38-94D6-2E6D7F8B21DD 10/29/15 10:44 AM bp-b4052594-ef92-4ef7-8afb-166142151029 10/29/15 10:42 AM bp-be4561ad-a5e1-47b6-9213-e29ef2151028 10/28/15 11:02 AM bp-b86d621d-7ce8-4d34-89ed-354252151028 10/28/15 7:48 AM

Within the past two days, my browser has started failing to search. I did a search on this through another browser and found a suggestion to clear history. I did that and it seemed to fix the problem. However, the next time I tried a search and every time since,I have to again clear history, close the browser, and then initiate the search again.

If instead of a search, I select one of my "favorites", there is no problem.

I have many times set Firefox to remember history, close Firefox and reopen later only to find it has reverted to using custom settings. The setting to clear history upon closing is unchecked and should not affect. But again, the "Firefox will", resets itself when I close Firefox. Firefox acts this way on both my desktop and my laptop, so should not be a problem with a particular PC.

I recently switched to Firefox from Internet Explorer. Since then, I'm not able to print a selection from a webpage or an email, etc. I followed all of the steps in the tutorial "Fix printing problems in Firefox" but it did not help. I also tried the suggestion to use cntrl-P, but that did not work either. On the print preview window, the selection is grayed out.

What do I need to do to fix this?

Thanks

A few days ago, I decided to try to use DashLane to help with my password management. Not that Firefox was doing a bad job or anything, but I just though..."what the heck." After about 2 days of trying to get DashLane to quit trying to save every little thing I was working on, I had enough, and uninstalled it.

Since this time, my Firefox passwords have not been working correctly at all. They are there, but unless I input the first letter of the username, the password will not show up. Previously, I have not had to do this at all. I've tried multiple methods that were suggested to others on the forum, but without any success. I'm at a point where I just want to uninstall Firefox altogether, and start over again.

Any thoughts? I appreciate anyone's help in this matter.
