Since a recent upgrade to Monterey 12.6 on my Mac I have found that Firefox updates won't download. I cannot even connect to Firefox Support to ask this question and am therefore having to do so using my work pc. Trying the download or trying to access support just ends up with the attempt at connection timing out. Any suggestions as to what I need to do to fix this would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I have been having troubles with Firefox for the last couple of months. Problem seems to have started when I downloaded a beta version of Thunderbird. My Firefox has been sporadic, sometimes loading, sometimes not. Today I was using Firefox without incident and suddenly it stopped working. I could not reopen Firefox. I restarted my computer numerous times. I could not get Firefox to reopen. I have now deleted Firefox from my computer and cannot reinstall Firefox from the Mozilla website. The Install box pops up and it says Firefox will open shortly.....nothing happens. The install just locks up. What is going on? I love Firefox, but this is really getting me frustrated. Used for years without issues until recently. I have McAfee running constantly on the computer, can't believe it is malware. I don't open anything unless I am certain of the source. As I mentioned above, the only app I have downloaded is Thunderbird. Maybe coincidence, but all the problems started at that time. Using Windows 10, Dell computer.

My firefox crashed. Everytime I tried to open it, it would open two websites in two different windows but it would not do anything else. I had never created a log in for it.

I downloaded a second version of Firefox today. It never asked to overwrite anything so I think everything from the "old" version should still be on my machine. I have now created a log in in the "new" version.

My question is how can I get my passwords and bookmarks moved into the "new". I have searched for answers but I have not been successful.

^topic, I can no longer download any extension outside of the official firefox site.

I noticed yesterday when I created a new firefox profile that I couldn't download 3rd party extensions. This also affects my main profile and creating a new profile have the same issue. This is the error I'm getting: https://puu.sh/JqAIh/0854801832.png

I'm running Firefox Nighlty 108.0a1 (2022-11-01) (64-bit), windows 10 64bit professional OS.

Manually saving the plugin and drag and drop still works, but directly clicking download doesn't.

Any idea on how to fix this?

It seams that when importing history from Chrome into Firefox its limited to the last 3 months, it not importing all the history

I tried to change the browser.migrate.chrome.history.limit to 1 million and browser.migrate.chrome.history.maxAgeInDays to 3650 setting in firefox but still i dont get all my chrome browser history

i used google to export chromes history to a json file using there cloud export data services and tried to import this into Firefox but didn't seam to work I'm guessing that's because the json is not in a format Firefox and recognise?

e.g. {

   "Browser History": [
       {
           "favicon_url": "https://www.google.com/favicon.ico",
           "page_transition": "LINK",
           "title": "Google Takeout",
           "url": "https://takeout.google.com/settings/takeout?hl=en-GB",
           "client_id": "dMHxim1XWjWSHQvlZzvYEw==",
           "time_usec": 1667503593885490

},

       {
           "favicon_url": "https://www.google.com/favicon.ico",
           "page_transition": "LINK",
           "title": "Google Takeout",

I have a new computer. When I tried signing into Mozilla on this new computer, I couldn’t remember the password so I reset the password for mozilla and signed in using the new password. Now I cannot find my books marks that I had in this same profile that I was using on my old computer. I also don’t currently have access to my old computer. How can I get my old bookmarks back.

Extra home page appears every time I click to open a .pdf from Microsoft NAV. It downloads the file (does not open it) but it opens a new home page to do this. I have to always delete this. The download is on the already open home page. How do I stop it from opening another home page every time I try to open one of these .pdf files from another application?
