Basically, I'm aware there's a quick option to transfer data between one browser to another as long as they are on the same device, but I wanna do the same for two different devices. I'd like to transfer my passwords, history, bookmarks, settings and themes. Is there a quick and easy way to do that?

hello, I cant find a way to limit the download speeds on the Firefox browser, any and all downloads instantly use all my bandwidth, making downloading large files a hassle and stop me from using the internet for anything else. I tried looking into extensions and add-ons but none of them could solve my problem. I wish to set a download speed limit on my browser so I may still use it while downloading large files.

This is not the first time this has happened, another idiot browser update: For whatever reason the checked box for "Always ask you where to save files" is out and instead defaults to "save file to" which over rules the checked box for "Always ask you where to save files" and then also auto opens attachments in pdf... PLEASE STOP IT MAKING GOD DAMN DECISIONS AND FIX IT

I cannot get firefox to update. It is set up for automatic updates but they don't happen. Even if I try manual installation of updates. Nothing works. I ran it in troubleshooting mode and the problem still exists. I restarted my computer and the problem still exists. I am using a mac running on Monterey.

So, I installed a new hard drive about a week ago and while re-installing things I also re-installed the Firefox Browser 64- bit. Strangely, it seems like the files did not install itself in the right areas or the files installed did not install themself in the right or normal places. It does work, but for some reason I don't see it's program files? Is this normal or something that happens?

Anyways, I've backed-up my bookmarks, and I am going to uninstall it, re-boot, and re-install it and see what happens I guess. Or should I uninstall Firefox and its Profile Folders also, etc, and than re-install it?

Firefox regularly forces me to restart the browser because of background updates being executed. When loading a new page I get: "Restart to Keep Using Firefox - An update to Firefox started in the background...". (see image below) Background updates of Firefox are disabled in the browsers preferences. (see image below) After restarting the browser, I actually noted, that the version is still the same as before (Noticed this the first time today, when taking the screenshot). (see image below) Anyway, it's a really annoying fact which made me and some colleagues almost leaf Firefox, even though I have been forever.

What is causing this issue and how can I stop it?

System:

  • Windows 10
  • Firefox 122.0.1 (and prior versions)
  • Reproducible on other machines
  • Machines are not managed remotely

For many years a happy user. (handicapped with shattered wrist, may be typos.)

My mac spontaneously crashed and rebooted overnight, a rare event. When I came up firefox wouldn't work.

Many, many times I clear out all vestiges of firefox from downloads, applications and every place I can think of.

I then empty trash and I use safari (ugh) to reinstall firefox. Everything proceeds well. When I activate the newly installed firefox application, nothing happens. Eventually in the "Force Quit Applications" it says Firefox "not responding"

I cannot think of anything else to try. Everything else on the Mac seems to be functioning well. The os is 12.7

The support archives do not have a case like this—0 responses
