September 22, 2020 Firefox, I recently allow an update of the Firefox browser. It was the worst decision I have ever made regarding my computer. Will you PLEASE give directions to reverse it back to the way it was? The thought has occurred to me that maybe I got a fake Firefox update. That surprises me if I did. I all ways check for another confirmation before do anything. I have considered going to a previous date but I my lose even more data doing that. Has Firefox had any recent updates? Please respond to this email and advise me what I can do if it indeed a fake update. Is it possible to delete the update? I feel that I lost the computer I was so satisfied with while I was using Firefox. A long time Firefox fan, Charles Shaw

I have kept FF v. 56.0.2 because of certain add-ons that I have come to rely upon. That version is shared by all users. However, I would like to add the newest version for a second user. How can I install the current version for only the second user without affecting v 56.0.2 for the primary user?

Every day I get a Firefox popup that says, "Firefox cannot download the latest version. Download the latest version and we will help you install it". Sometimes the popup appears immediately after I open my browesr, and sometimes it appears after I've been using the browser for several hours.

I've been doing the daily download and install, but I want to know what's causing this. I'm using a Late 2015 21.5" iMac running macOS Catalina Version 10.15.7. Firefox is Version 82.0b4, set as default browser with automatic updates turned on. I've been running Beta versions of Firefox for >2 years and have not had problems with updates before this. Thanks for any suggestions and solutions!

Firefox download location error

I have been facing this problem for quite sometimes. I have set the download location of Firefox browser to the Download folder of my laptop /home/inferni/Downloads. But sometimes when I download any file the file gets downloaded to a different location of my laptop /tmp/mozilla_inferni0/<filename> . This gets really annoying when I have to work on the file and it is nowhere to be found in the download location of my laptop and then I have to open the browser and track the file via the download section.

I tried to reset the download location and even reinstalled the browser but of no use. Earlier I used to work on ubuntu 18.04 LTS and then I switched to Fedora 32 but still the problem persists.

Thank you!

I've exported/imported firefox settings before (bookmarks, etc) but this time I didn't get a chance to export before my computer blew up. So when I logged on to Firefox on my new computer, I didn't have my password. It forced me to reset my password....but then none of my bookmarks transferred over. I thought they would be tied to my login and I could still recover them without the files from my old hard drive. That doesn't seem right to me, what am I missing? How do I recover the bookmarks saved on my Firefox login? I had soooo many....

thanks in advance!

Hi

I've just uninstalled Firefox as I somehow managed to have the beta version and the constant upgrades were driving me nuts. I now have 81.0 main version for Windows 10 64-bit. For many years I have kept my Profile folder on the D: drive for backup purposes. Having downgraded (by one version?) it won't let me use the old profile. Normally if I rebuild a PC or migrate, I edit %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles.ini and point it to the profile on the D: drive but now I just get told to either create a new profile or exit.

How can I retrieve all my bookmarks, passwords and other preferences from my old profile?

Thanks John

Reading the several comments on this subject has not led to a solution. The Firefox Setup 81 and Installer are sitting in the downloads file, but when I click either "Open" or "Run as Administrator" I get a Windows "For security and performance Windows 10 in S mode...." followed by two options "Learn more" or "Switch out of S mode". When I choose the latter the "Switch out of S mode" page arrives. Now what? Thanks.
