As stated, my edition of Firefox on my iMac is cut off from access to Moz://a server. So any offered upgrades, reloads, fixes, are not able to be accessed. All I can get are these offers from Firefox via email. To access Moz://a server, I'm writing this on my dependable "Opera" browser. Safari browser is also badly skewed; displays huge letters so that a word covers more than my display screen.

Doing OK with Opera browser the last year. Would be nice to download a new, functional Firefox browser but am shut out from access to Moz://a server if attempted through Firefox.

Suggestions are welcome.

Thanks, Richard

Downloading Mozilla Firefox using Windows Edge on Windows 10: digital certificate-unknown publisher & Mozilla Maintenance Serv auto install

I downloaded Mozilla Firefox a few days ago using Windows Edge on Windows 10. The system notification at the time of installation asking me if I wanted the app to make changes on my PC did state the publisher was Mozilla Corporation. However when I went into MS App list in settings, I noticed Mozilla Maintenance Service had also been installed without asking me for my permission.

Even more concerning when I tried to uninstall Mozilla Maintenance Service a system notification asking me if I wanted the app to make changes to my PC stated the digital certificate for that app had an unknown publisher. I also checked the newly installed Mozilla Firefox browser app and the system notification again stated its digital certificate had an unknown publisher.

I left both apps installed and today I tried to view the certificates via the MS Management Console, the certificate store (accessed by pressing the windows key and R and typing certmgr.msc into the pop up search box). MMS could not find the certificates for either the Mozilla Firefox browser or Mozilla Maintenance Service apps. I've now managed to find copies of the digital certificates for both apps in my C drive under Program Files and Program Files (x86) but I am still concerned that the apps could be trojans. If anyone can answer some or all of the below questions I would be very grateful.

Has anyone had similar problems with Mozilla Firefox browser and Mozilla Maintenance Maintenance: 1) Not being able to find their digital certificate using the MS Management Console? 2) The apps list in settings stating publisher unknown when you try to uninstall either app? 3) Mozilla Maintenance Service automatically being installed when I only selected to download the Mozilla Firefox browser app? And lastly, is the C drive on the PC the correct place to view digital certificates for these apps?

How to better CONTROL the 'AUTOMATED' Firefox Update/s notifications ...?

Is it possible to more specifically control the FIREFOX AUTOMATIC 'UPDATES' notifications than just to select 'NOT NOW' which is offered by the Firefox BUT THEN - this Update Notification/s are being sent 100-1000 (or more times!) again every FEW MINUTES after REQUESTING IT from Firefox ...? This is such an UNNECESSARY and completely AVOIDABLE NUISANCE, which is strongly interfering with many PC-users work and their productivity efforts - for instance during frequent music-recordings, and perhaps many other similar and PC-System-critical applications being interfered by these 'AUTOMATIC UPDATES' ... Any effective advice and help would be greatly appreciated ...! Tony H.

My Mac is using OS X El Capitan version 10.11.6 and I dowloaded the latest Firefox Browser version 34.0 However, the home page is obviously different from my existing Firefox page, but all my previous links in my toolbar are missing. Is there a way to migrate my old links across to the new, or should I abandon the latest version and stick with existing Firefox Browser? Thank you. rtsp@btinternet.com

I tried using firefox's 'import from browser', and also the import from html bookmarks file. Neither have worked. When I uninstall firefox, it leaves folders which I then deleted. When I reinstalled firefox, again there were two user profile files, and again, when I tried to import my bookmarks from chrome, both options failed again. It's a shame that firefox was such a nice browser, but from my search, I see that lots of other people are having this problem, so I suppose it's just that the browser code has gotten so complicated that perhaps no one really knows why it's stopped working? (kind of like windows, where stuff just stops working after a while; but at least it works when it's first installed!). Let me know what you can suggest, but I've been going through this for a while, and am about to kiss firefox goodbye forever if there's no fix for this.
