I just recently updated my Macbook Air to Big Sur and downloaded Firefox to use as my default browser. Installation went smoothly and I am able to use the program as intended. When I click on an external link, an window pops up and tells I do not have permission to open the app and to contact my computer or network administrator for support.

I am not computer savvy when it comes to programming and would love any help anyone has to offer.

Most appreciative.

Hello, I need help. Unlike my Dell Laptop that opens when clicking "Flaming Fox" icon in Tray, my iMac version of Firefox forces me to 're-create/register' my account, 're-syncing/re-registering' each time. Very frustrating. Assistance would be much appreciated. There must be a simple solution that alludes me.

Over the last couple of days we are seeing instances of Firefox just disappearing from Windows 10 and just today from a Windows 7 pc. When I say disappears, the desktop shortcut becomes dead, click on it and a prompt to search for firefox.exe comes up. Checking Add / Remove programs shows Firefox to be installed. Checking C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox reveals empty folders with the exception of a couple of text files. Trying to reinstall the Firefox app, we are prompted with a message that Firefox.exe can't be found, and there is a button to browse for it. The only solution we have found for this is to copy the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox folder from a working pc, and we just received a call from a user we did this for telling us that it is gone again. Any ideas?

Thanks.....

We have checked for viruses.

All of a sudden Firefox has ceased to react when I'm trying to download a file/save a page. When I click Cmd+S or File → Save page as…, nothing happens. When I try to open an upload dialogue, a solid gray window appears, and that's it. Uploading files through drag&drop interface works fine.

The problem seemingly appeared after migrating from a Mac Mini to a Macbook Air (both M1). I've already tried to restart the laptop and refresh Firefox — to no avail.

Is there anything else I could try to do?

latest version 88.0b6 still gives "can't load xpcom" message why is this still happening after 3 years of the problem in the history of upgrades. Don't tell me to check profile as I can't even start FF. I have done all the deletions as instructed by various experts but still get the message "can't load xpcom". Samuel Santos said download "83" to see if that fixes it I don't know if it did cause I then got "CAN'T FIND ENTRY POINT"

After having installed the latest Firefox update Firefox starts but it does not react to any link inserted for display.

If have tried all three help solutions provided but it does not react, also a new installation changed nothing

The error message is: Starter process deactivated after error.

Could someone please help to make run it again

P.S. It was not possible to get the Troubleshooting information as I could not write this request on Firefox but had to use another browser

I work on computers without admin rights, and i can't install add-ons,

how to make a true portable Firefox without using registry at all

I really don't understand that a free software allows such a blocking, even if chrome doesn't pose any problem with add-ons.

is there a way to lanuch firefox with a option to not use registry or to redirect registry in file or in a not locked custom registry like

hkey_local_machine/software/policies/Mozilla_portable/Firefox

or something like that ?

Hi there,

I have a brand new Win 10 MS Surface 4 Laptop, and have tried downloading and installing various versions of Firefox:

From the the Windows Store Direct downloads (via MS Edge): Mozilla FF Win 64 Mozilla FF Win 64 MSI Mozilla FF Win 32

I have completely uninstalled and attempted to re-install each in turn. Attempts to open FF through desktop shortcut, Start Menu and Win-R FF.exe all seem to start but only ever get the briefest flash of a blue line along the Taskbar then nothing. Same happens starting Shift-Shortcut.

Nothing shows in Task Manager either after any start method. I'm pretty sure I'm not in 'S Mode' as I've been able to download, install and run WhatsApp Web, but I'm not wholly convinced I've cleared that up fully.

Thanks! E

Firefox Not Saving Imported Data from Chrome - MacOS Catalina

Hi All! Need some help for a client please :) iMac 27in (late 2013) Processor = 3.2Ghz Quad Core Intel Core i5 Memory = 8GB DDR3 MacOS Catalina = 10.15.7 1TB HDD Not sure if this is a MacOS thing or a Firefox thing. My client would prefer to use Firefox, currently using Chrome. However - whenever they close Chrome or shutdown / restart the computer, Firefox looses everything and they have to re-import all the data from Chrome. This is happening on a continual basis. It's simply not saving any data / settings that are imported from Chrome.

Thanks!
