I cannot update to the latest version. After the downlaod is complete, the browser does not respond and I cannot do anything. How can I fix this?

I am using a MacBook Pro and updated to Sierra. I need to use FireFox for a school I am attending, but when I download to the latest version, nothing happens. The browser opens, but when I enter a web address there is no action.

I also use Norton antivirus, but I think I have added Firefox to the list of allowed devices on the firewall. The older version of Firefox works, but is slow.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Firefox 18 suddenly now renders webpage improperly in Quirks mode while in other versions of firefox and other browsers webpage loads correctly in standard mode

On desktop I have version 18 Firefox which I don't want to upgrade because not all add-ons I need are available in higher versions. This Version 18 Firefox *used to load a webpage properly* but I've noticed it no longer does (missing graphics and text) and that it is being rendered in Quirks mode. However, on a laptop running version 32 of Firefox, or using Chrome on the same desktop, the webpage loads properly and is rendered in standard compliance mode. How can I force this version of Firefox 18 to once again render the subject webpage in standard mode so that it displays properly like it used to?? Since it formerly worked, and since the page also renders correctly in other browsers and versions of firefox, it doesn't appear that the subject webpage needs editing, only that something happened in this version of Firefox 18 to make it suddenly render the page incorrectly in quirks mode. Can you help me force Firefox to render the page in standard mode WITHOUT editing the webpage? THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!!

When there was a version 3.5 I liked firefox because it had easy tabbed browsing and there where a lot of extensions made by others (not by mozilla itself).

Now I am using Firefox 18 and it crashes all the time, so you are going to remind me to update firefox to version 38 or is it upgraded already to version 120.

What I mean is this, firefox updates more in one week then Microsoft updates in a year and still keeps on crashing some 5 times a day.

So if I where a mozilla developer(?) I should get the hell out of this internet browsers business and find a new developing area where i could work on.

In other words firefox is just CRASHING CRAP THAT NEEDS TO BE DISCONTINUED FOREVER.

A BUNCH OF CRAP DEVELOPERS THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE OVER THERE, YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THE MEANING IS OF

BEING STABLE!!!!!!!!!

Not much to add. Purchased a Lenovo Twist, Windows 8; installed Firefox after the 30 sec or so that was required to become annoyed with Windows Explorer. Jump is proceeded by message, too quick to read, in the lower left corner of the screen. The only entity at that location is the Adblock icon; however, I've been running this plug in almost from the beginning and have changed none of it's settings.

For days now, a "Reminder" box pops up on my screen every few minutes. It's followed by whatever the date is. It always says that a Web page cannot be opened and to try various things, even though I'm not online or trying to open any page. I can get rid of it by opening the task manager (control, alt, delete), but it comes back in a few minutes. I tried "System Restore" but that's not working, for an unrelated reason. I'd like to stop this annoying reminder. Thanks.
