Firefox just updated, without my permission, which is another problem. But now when i try to open pdf files, firefox always ask what to do. In Options > General > Appliacations i set pdf files to open with firefox, but firefox still asks what to do. In the window where it asks what to do, there is a tick box saying "Do this automatically from now on", even if i choose that option it still ends up asking what to do the next time i open a pdf file.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I like to install Firefox with the online stub setup, because it installs the latest version automatically. But in the first installation english is predefined and has to be changed later in settings manually (for every user account).

Is there the possibillity for a stub-setup (not the offline-version!) that installs Firefox in german language directly and if yes, can you tell me where I find the download for it?

With kind regards.

Several days ago I got a message indicating that a firefox update could speed up my computer browsing, so I eventually gave permission for it, though changing my systerm makes me nervous. Now, after my computer was not letting me do anything for an extended period, today, I restarted it, and Avast vpn had been installed. Are you partnering with avast? Did this come with the Firefox update? I had a difficult time getting rid of their antivirus software before I could install the software I actually paid for from Eset. I don't want anything interfering with my antivirus software. Please advise. How can I make it go away? I've liked using Firefox and don't want to have to give it up, but am suspicious of this intrusion.

I recently installed an SSD with a new install of Windows and Firefox. I still have the old hard drive with Windows and Firefox installed on it in the same computer. I am trying to transfer the data (like passwords, bookmarks and other stuff like that) from the old versions to the new versions, but am having troubles finding how.

How do I get the new Firefox to look at the old hard drive to find the data?

Used to be able to download files from anywhere I chose. Now, cannot download from www.bluesound.com. ISP and I ran test that shows download and upload work, and AT&T e-mails are arriving into MS Outlook (although very much slower than in the past).

When download request sent to Bluesound, the wait cursor spins indefinitely. Once left it running overnight, still spinning the next morning.

Perhaps this has to do with security settings. Advice, anyone?

I'm trying to import my saved logins and passwords from Chrome to Firefox. When to try to do this I get prompted to create a Primary Password. Whenever I try to do this, I get a message saying, "Unable to set Primary Password." I also can't cancel out of this or switch to another tab--I have to ctrl-alt-del and close Firefox to get out of it. I also can't create a Primary Password through the options menu. Anytime I try to set a primary password it just says "Unable to change Primary Password."

I selected the setting "Always ask you where to save files". However, when I download files, Firefox automatically dumped the files into the Windows Temp folder. It never asked me where to save the files. I think this is a bug in this most recent version of Firefox (It used to ask me where to save the files in previous versions.) I suggest the Firefox team to correct this issue. It may seem a minor inconvenience, but it is distracting as I have to try to "dig out" the downloaded file among the sea of files in the Windows Temp folder.

I recently upgraded to Windows 10 and MS Office 2019 Professional Plus and need to re-install a lot of stuff. I want to download Firefox to use as my default web browser. When I download and install, the icon shows up on my desktop all right, but when I click the icon to open the browser, the tab says "Problem loading page" and displays "File not found" error message (screenshot attached here).

Does this have anything to do with the "Sync" option that keeps popping up? I don't know what that means, except it looks like it wants to "sync" my computer with my phone or any other devices, which I don't have any interest in.

Please help! Thank you!
