Hello,

I have a question about updating Firefox on Windows. Is there a command that tells the MozillaMaintenance Service (or Updater.exe) to check for updates and if there is a new update, to install it?

When Firefox is started, Firefox also checks for updates automatically or when the user goes to Help -> About Firefox. And that's exactly what I want to start with just one command. Is that possible?

Thanks a lot.

How will I be able to keep v68-based Firefox ESR during the Jul-Sep 2020 "overlap period"?

Just planning ahead here...

I have Firefox 68.9.0esr (the latest esr version). I have Firefox set to “check for updates but let me decide whether to install them.” I have read that a new version of esr based on Firefox 78 will be released on June 30, 2020, but that there will be an approx 3-month overlap period during which one can alternatively choose to use additional 68.xx esr updates.

If I want to take advantage of this overlap period and keep using an up-to-date 68esr as long as possible, how would I do so? After June 30, will I be offered only 78esr versions, or will I be offered the “overlap” 68.xx? If the answer is that I will be offered 78esr as of June 30, how can I obtain the overlap 68 esr updates instead?

Thanks.

This has happened twice by now. I have recently enabled 2FA on my account using Aegis, and the next time I logged on, it didn't ask me for a code and it seems as if I never activated it. Set it up again and the same issue pops up. Is anyone having this issue as well?

Using the browser ver. 77.0.1 (64-bit) on a Windows 10 laptop.

Hi,

I am trying to access oracle apps URL from firefox. Getting follwing error.

In order to access this application, you must install the J2SE Plugin version 1.5.0_10. To install this plugin, click here to download the oaj2se.exe executable. Once the download is complete, double-click the oaj2se.exe file to install the plugin. You will be prompted to restart your browser when the installation is complete.

I have installed j2se but still getting the same issue. Please help me on resolving the issue.

Regards, CG

Google Meet sticks on the Getting Ready screen in Firefox 77.0.1, on Mac OS 10.14.6 (Mojave) but works normally on Chrome. I also have trouble with some parts of Google Docs. For example, spreadsheets will download normally but will not display, where .doc or .docx files will display normally. Likewise, everything fine in Chrome.

Any suggestions for how to remedy this much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I would like to make a bookmark file with all the tabs in all the open windows, organised by window. The final goal is to be able to open all Firefox windows with all their respective tabs in another browser, like Vivaldi; alternatively, to time stamp various such bookmark files, and open all the window with all their tabs I had open in Firefox, say, 8 months ago. Please have a look at the screenshot attached: it seems that the menu button Bookmarks → Bookmarks All Tabs makes bookmarks only of the tabs of the upper-most window. Thank you for any help.

esr 68.9.0 Since May 26, synchronization of cloud tabs and plugins has stopped in Crimea region.

It was determined that synchronization works fine through vpn, which means that the problem is in sanctions. I think mozilla sync using some hosting that, following sanctions, bans Crimean ip-addresses.

But there is a very important point about sanctions, they apply only to the services from which you can make a profit. For example, google search engine works, but AdSense is not.

So maybe open-source browser can be able to configure the synchronization service, which does not receive profit, to work normally with users from the Crimea?

Just started yesterday. Unable to login to AOL webmail. Get "bad message 431 reason: request header fields too large"

Appears to be specific to Firefox, as I am able to login successfully with Brave.

FF68.9 esr. Mac 10.13.6 High Sierra

Nothing has changed on my end. No idea how to fix or if it's just something at the AOL end suddenly objecting to Firefox.

Dear audience

I have troubles that when I copy Firefox profile to another computer, the web extensions does not work.

Sometimes helps to restart Firefox to safe-mode and then back to normal. But always works when on a new computer I disable extensions and enabled them back on.

If I remember correctly, this behavior started with Firefox 68.

OS: Windows 10 Firefox: 77.0.1, 64bit, English

Do anyone know why this is happening, and hot to correct it? Is there any preference that should be modified?

Thank you and cheers

As of Firefox 77.x on macOS 10.14.6 I cannot access or see any of my add-ons in the browser page interface.

• I've 'reset' Firefox. • I've trashed the .plist file for Firefox. • I've gone through the traditional routine of trashing favicons.sqlite, favicons.sqlite-wal, places.sqlite, places.sqlite-shm, and places.sqlite-wal. • I've verified that all my add-ons are currently valid ON and valid. • I've turned off and on extensions to see if one of them is causing the problem. • I've Quit and rebooted Firefox between each of these steps.

Nothing is helping. This apparently is an entirely new situation from when I was seeing this problem in previous versions of Firefox when I was always successful at solving this specific problem.

What changed and what do I do now? This severely hobbles my ability and willingness to use Firefox browser. Please end this madness. I'm to the point of irate, after all this trouble with add-ons.

I have locked xpinstall.enabled to false.

I wonder if this will prevent extension updates?

I hope not, because if it does, it will result in old extension versions which might have security issues.

Many users lock this property to avoid inexperienced users installing extensions.

In the example at enabled it seems that it blocks the function startSoftwareUpdate. And it's plain to see, that the function contains the word "update".

Many times lately, when i get a reply to an email I've sent, i can't read the reply. I'm on a mac book pro. I just tried clearing history for the last hour but that didn't help.

I can only read it if i go to Google Chrome .

And on GC, after being there a few minutes, all of a sudden i see it has changed to " site not secure". 

Thought it was because i was on wifi but it happens even NOT on wifi.
