I wanted to move my FF profile from my old PC (Firefox ESR for Windows XP SP3 32 bit 52.9?) to my new PC where I installed Firefox ESR 91.11 64 bit.

Moving the profile was no problem. I simply copied it on an USB-Stick and moved it to the profile folder of the new installation.

Starting FF works and it remembers all old links, settings and usernames for the sites I visited - BUT it does not store any password I enter after having moved the profile.

I would like to download and install the older version of Firefox. This I believe that version is 93 for Mac OS.

Version 102 to is just released (28 June 2022). I do not want to install this new version until it was proven over the next few months.

Please advise how to get the Version 93

Cheers

Firefox has assigned my .cpp files as type "Git", but .cpp files should be type "Visual Studio 2019". How do I change the type "Git" to "Visual Studio 2019" for .cpp files, so when I want to save or open a .cpp file the Firefox Applications matrix assigns .cpp files to Visual Studio 2019?

I was updated to Version 102.0 and don't like it! can I go back to the previous version or should I uninstall it and go fully onto Chrome? I am an older person trying to use computers and find myself unable to use this version. I was able to open google apps easily, and there are too many changes. I am confused and frustrated, how do I go back?

I'm clicking on a list of links on a page, and the download-panel keeps popping up. This blocks the view of the page that I'm clicking on and I lose my position on the page as I'm clicking.

I like seeing the download-panel, so I don't want to turn it off. I'd just like it to show only the last clicked-on entry, not the last 10 or however many it's showing, which seems to include completed downloads.

I can see that it has a hard limit on how many entries it shows. Is there a way for me to adjust that limit?

I've been using Firefox for years but this morning it stopped working. the little firefox button just kept moving left-right and never found the page. Eventually I gave up and uninstalled firefox but when I tried to reinstall it, it states that firefox was previously installed and allows me to reinstall. when I do that it always gives an error message that it was unsuccessful.

Hi Team,

As a concern,we want to enquire that since our company has its own product which uses Flash technology but its been known now that firefox will not suppport adobe flash player after 2020. So if we save and continue to use an oder version of firefox(with autoupdate off),will it allow to continue usage of Adobe Flash Player after 2020? Please confirm the same or any other workaround so that adobe flash player can be used within firefox after 2020 as well.

Thanks

I had this problem 2 years ago and somebody helped me fix it as follows:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. (2) In the search box above the list, type or paste URLB and pause while the list is filtered (3) Double-click the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

HOWEVER --- I don't seem to have browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled in my new version 74.0. What happened to it? Does it have a new name now?

Note that I tried in Options / Preferences / Search

    I unchecked "Show search suggestions in location bar results

In Options / Preferences / Privacy

   I uncheck each of the boxes in the Location Bar section (History, Bookmarks, Open tabs).

After Firefox update, when opening an ebay item from the search list all photos & text go to the left side, layout not normal

A day ago I did the Firefox update to 75.0. Since then I have had trouble viewing ebay items. After you do a ebay search a list of items show up. When you open an item from a search list, you get a photo of the item usually on the left side and a description below the photo item. However, below and after the description everything including other seller photos and text are on the left side of the page. Normally they are across the page from the left side to right side. But now the layout is all on the left side. Everything is against the left side only and very hard to read. For many years I have never run into this problem before. I signed off and restarted Ebay with same problem. Looked at my son's computer and the ebay layout looked correct like like mine use to. I also opened up my google chrome browser and signed onto ebay. The ebay photos and text were correctly located on the page. So it appears that the recent update to firefox will not display the correct layout format in ebay. Can I download to the previous version of firefox? I 'm using latest Firefox browser 75.0 and running Windows 10. I attached a screen shot photo.

On my old computer, it seems I did not set up a Mozilla account. I have saved the logins.json and key3.db and saved them online. The most recent version of Firefox does not use the key3 file. Is there anyway to convert these files so they can be read by the current Firefox? Or failing that, plaintext?

My present iMac is failing rapidly and I will be replacing it with a new Mac very. I do not have a Time Machine backup. The only info I really need is how to copy off, to an external drive, all the bookmarks and bookmark structure), extensions, and add-ons I have added to Firefox, and then add them to Firefox on my future Mac.

Do I just copy the Firefox app to the external drive? I looked in the Macs' base system Library and Preferences, and in my User files, but I do not see anything related to Firefox.

My old (current) and failing Mac is running the latest version of Catalina,

Thanks for any info!

I was cleaning out my hard drive and deleting old installs of Microsoft Visual Studio Redistributable packages, and I almost certainly deleted the one that Firefox relies on.

I then attempted to start Firefox, getting the error, "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem."

I uninstalled, following the clean install directions, and deleting the "Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/" directory.

Then, I ran the Firefox Installer, newly downloaded, and when running it, it gives the same error, "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem." Selecting "Restore Defaults" has no effect either way. The installer then appears to complete in the background, and the Firefox directory is created, along with the executable.

When I run Firefox.exe, it seems to load the program, but any address I type in fails to begin loading. This includes websites (www.google.com) and help/utility pages (about:config). I'm therefore unable to change any settings within Firefox.

I then tried re-installing the "Visual C++ 2008" and "Visual C++ 2015-2019" packages in an attempt to restore that DLL, but that had no effect after repeating the same steps above (clean uninstall, re-install). Which VC++ Redist Package should I be re-installing? Ideally, I should be able to just get a copy of VCRUNTIME140_1.dll and place it where Firefox is looking for it.

I run Firefox on a number of systems and two of my work computers seem to be unable to check in with the Firefox update servers to get updates. See image for the exact error message.

"Firefox can't update to the latest version. Download a fresh copy of Firefox and we'll help you to install it."

My suspicion is my network team is blocking my browsers from getting to the Firefox update servers but I don't know how to test it. One of my browsers is 77.0, the other is 77.0.1. Both of them give me the error in the image. Both of them insist I'm on the latest version of Firefox when I use 'Help/About Firefox' to check.

If anyone knows what data I should collect to get this figured out I'd appreciate it.

Thanks
