I run Firefox in portable mode in Windows 10. It works wonderfully. However, when i click on web links outside of FF, it loads Chrome. So in FF I go to options and set it as a default. In "default apps" it shows up there. But Because I am running FF portable, by setting it as default browser, it creates a new profile on c:\users\username . And loads a whole new instance of FF. That is not what I would like to happen.

Is there a way to set it up so that when I click a link in an email, it will load the FF from the portable instance? using the profile within the portable directory. Usually I always have FF open. It is never closed.

I do not want to use Safari any longer. I downloaded Firefox yesterday on my Mac. I set up my preferences. Then when I went to open it it had disappeared. Gone. Not in my Application or Download folders. I tried again to install it and the Download on your site shows a pop up with a FF icon and an arrow to the App store. It is to in the App store anymore. It was there yesterday!

Firefox keeps automatically updating, even when I've clicked in settings to check with me before updating

A piece of software I need to use for work requires an older version of Firefox (Firefox 68.4.2 ESR) to run, so in the past, I've had to delete Firefox and re-download the older version which has worked fine. However, I recently got a new Mac and now when I try the same thing it's not working. Whenever I first open Firefox after downloading it, it opens as the correct (older) version, however it does not seem to be able to connect to the internet and I get the spinning wheel that never ends, and then whenever I close out of Firefox and reopen it, it automatically updates to the newest version. I have multiple times gone into the settings on Firefox and changed my preferences to check with me before installing updates and I've gone into the settings of the App Store to make sure it's not automatically updating any apps or programs. My computer is currently running OS version 11.1 (Big Sur) and I'm wondering if maybe this version is too new to be compatible with Firefox 68 ESR? Any help, ideas, or advice is greatly appreciated!

This is super annoying. Apologies in advance. Brand New computer. Do not have access to old desktop presently. Did not export. Not an ideal situation. Downloaded & signed into my FireFox account & can not find my former computers' Bookmarks. Anywhere. Everything else (add-ons) loaded fine & am able to continue but for some reason FF erased everything. I've spent 4 hours reading through countless suggestions to no avail. Why a major company like this doesn't have 24 hour support is beyond me. Ha.

If anyone can help me locate yesterdays (literally) Bookmarks & everything else I'm missing from my FF profile, I would be grateful. Sounds like this is an ongoing issue. Been running FF since 2016. They have to exist somewhere.

Silently uninstalling Firefox ESR 78.7.0 and 78.6.1 with helper.exe /S shows an Installer Dialog page instead of running fully silent. In german the heading in the Installer Dialog Window is "Stattdessen Firefox bereinigen?" (see screenshot). Dont't know the exact translation to the english version. Technically it asks for starting a cleaning assistant.

Any chance to deactivate this with another silent switch? Is it a bug?

Official docs tell me that the /S switch alone should be enough: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/silently-install-uninstall-firefox-enterprise

Using MSI Package is no option.
