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

-Restart PC done -Cache cleared -Safe mode used -Works on IE, Edge, Chrome

I read about a different Firefox issue and I am able to visit this page FYSA: https://ir.ebaystatic.com/rs/v/4ups3vxocu2mherdhxh5b2kdxml.css

Is this something that Mozilla would be able to fix in the next update?

Hi there,

Firefox suddenly crashed on my laptop earlier today, I sent an error report and tried to reopen Firefox but it crashed again straight away. When I try to open the Start menu it does not respond, same with when I try to open Microsoft Edge. If I try to open Settings the box will open but then immediately crash. I can open Documents, File Explorer, Word and Acrobat, they seem to be unaffected. I have tried turning off and on and restarting with no success. I can open Firefox in safe mode but if I then try to open a new page it crashes. I've run a Norton check and no viruses were detected.

I followed the instructions for finding submitted Crash Reports and the Crash ID is bp-a4997142-2eba-4cbd-ba43-b64f80200907.

I was just using the laptop for work using sites I commonly use. I did download a new version of iTunes and iCloud this morning, not sure if this would have affected it.

I'd be grateful if anyone can help me or provide any advice.

Thanks

Just ran a search in the address bar and was taken to this "Firefox search contest 2020" page. Never happened before and I assume it's a scam, have checked my add-ons and plugins but I don't see anything suspicious. Is this something to be concerned about?

Hello,

I have been running Firefox for a good long while, but as of little over a month ago it started crashing randomly on my Windows machine (MacOS seems perfectly stable). The crashes occur anywhere between few seconds after starting and hour+ after starting. They don't appear to be linked to any specific activity, and also occur while I'm not actively using the browser, or even using the computer.

I've gone through every "guide" I can find, disabling/removing add-ons, extensions, resetting configuration, deleting stuff incl whole profile folder, disabling hardware acceleration, using Default theme etc. Currently using it with add-ons disabled, and everything reset, but logged in as me and sync'ing Bookmarks, Tabs and Logins.

Only thing that seems to work is to run it in Safe Mode, but mimicking Safe Mode by disabling everything doesn't result in the same stability.

Windows is the latest build, drivers are the latest versions, Firefox is the latest version, currently 80.0.1 64-bit.

Hope someone might have a suggestion as to what to do,

Cheers, NC.

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!
