Dear audience

I have troubles that when I copy Firefox profile to another computer, the web extensions does not work.

Sometimes helps to restart Firefox to safe-mode and then back to normal. But always works when on a new computer I disable extensions and enabled them back on.

If I remember correctly, this behavior started with Firefox 68.

OS: Windows 10 Firefox: 77.0.1, 64bit, English

Do anyone know why this is happening, and hot to correct it? Is there any preference that should be modified?

Thank you and cheers

Finally the upgrader for Firefox works on user account for the Mac OS. I've always had to switch to my admin account to check for updates. Now, the latest update caused the OS to ask for the admin password, while in the user account, just like most other applications do. Very good. That was a frustration. Thanks.

Several times within the last few weeks, I've had a screen pop-up with the FireFox logo and an orange background suggesting I should download the latest update. I've discovered that this is coming from different URL's, the latest is from https://yeinejs88.com. A smaller window opens up when I click on the "Download Now" icon stating that the download is a JavaScript.

https://yeinejs88.com/6166547330911/1501259748677662/firefox-update.js

Are you aware of this? The screen originated from a different URL the last time it occurred. Gerard

Hello all,

Firefox notified me of an update via a popup. I've used this method in the past without problems and chose it again to update to Firefox 57. After restarting Firefox the Mozilla site appeared. All seems well except for the fact that this is the very first time I have not needed to agree to opening the download, open a .dmg, place Firefox in Utilities, etc. There is No Evidence of the download anywhere. Nothing, nada, zip in any folder. And, believe me, I have searched. Have I done something foolish or is this a new feature of the new Firefox Quantum? So far, everything is proceeding as usual. TIA
