Update to the most recent Firefox Browser Version unsuccessful. 'Automatic update' option is active, but I receive a failure message like "... could not be updated to the newest version". I'm stuck at version 69 or so. Manual update equally unsuccessful - I tried the commonly known tips already. Windows 8 PC, active user profile is not 'administrator' (this was not a problem in the past). P.S.: I'm sending thsi message from a different PC (... wher updating Firefox no problem) - so educated guesses below may be misleading

I went to use Firefox. A message pops up wanting to know if I want to make Firefox my default browser. I thought I all ready had. ( This problem started after Firefox did an update ). Anyway, I clicked "yes". I am taken to a page on my computer that lists all the Aps I have. Firefox was listed but when I clicked on the Apt nothing happened. I tried again and now Firefox is not even listed. How can I make Firefox my default browser if it is not even listed? I am using Firefox to contact you now. The only thing listed is Google Chrome.

When I open Firefox a tab for gmail opens every time, but cannot be closed (there is no "X" on the right side of the tab). Therefore, when browsing in other tabs, gmail is always open. How can I close it, or better yet, remove from my computer? It does not show up in the list of programs on my computer within the Control Panel.

Every time I open the browser a page says: "Sorry. We're having trouble getting your pages back". There are two buttons, restore session or start new session. It is annoying to have to do this every time. I have done everything suggested in the help section, from refreshing the browser, exiting browser properly and change the browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes in the about:config. Nothing works.

Background -- I have a Synology Disk Station. When setting it up, in order to make a secure connection I registered the Domain I planned to use with Synology and received a registered Domain Name. I then applied for and received a certificate from “Lets Encrypt. It worked fine for a few years. I was able to login to the Disk Station Locally using the Local Network IP I had assigned to it, and also able log in via the registered Domain through Synology with a Secure Connection using either method when logging in. Everything worked perfectly. Over a year ago I had some issues with my network (it has been too long ago for me to remember what it was). I could not resolve it, so when I called Netgear Tech Support they had me reset my router to factory settings. This did fix the issue I was having, but I later noticed resetting had changed my IP address. I thought this was not a problem at the time. It was then I also noticed I was no longer getting a Secure Connection on through my Disk Station. Have been trying to resolve this on my own, but I am not having any luck. But I am learning as I go. Present Day – I am still having issues logging in. The message I get when I log into the Synology registered Domain with Firefox is "Unable to Connect". I tried Chrome and get a similar message. When I log in locally using the assigned IP address I get "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead".

I click on the "Advanced" button where Firefox displays the Error Message:  SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN.  I continue with the exception and able to log into the Disk Station. 

My Goal is to get it working with a secure connection as it did before the Router Reset. -- I have checked all the appropriate ports are open. 5000 and 5001. -- Have checked for any firewall restrictions. -- I have tried replacing the previous certificate with a new one. -- Synology Tech Support does not seem to know, so I figure the problem lies within Windows 10 or Firefox. -- The Certificate in my Windows mmc Console says the Certificate is OK. Weather that is the one that is used for this connection I am speaking of, I do not know. -- The Certificate is current and has not expired. My apologies for this description being lengthy, I just want to make sure I state everything I can think of in order to get this fixed. I do not know a lot about this topic, but am learning as I go. Any help is very much appreciated.

Hello everyone,

 I just bought a Macbook Air and want to use Firefox. Pardon my ignorance, I am not tech savvy, for I've a basic question. I started to install Firefox by clicking on the download button but the following message popped up: 

"Do you want to allow downloads on 'www.mozilla.org'? You can change which websites can download files in website preferences."

 I do not know what is right: to click on "cancel" or "allow" to proceed? I haven't a clue what is the right choice. I am not going to do anything beyond the basic, everyday stuff on my laptop, just want to make the smart choice to begin with, keepin' it simple. Thanks everyone!

Hello,

A few days ago I reinstalled win10. I backed up my firefox profile to keep all the data I had. After reinstall everything works except youtube. I can log in as usual, I can access my youtube settings, subscriptions etc. but I can not post comments, subscribe/unsubscribe to a channel or get notifications. When I try to subscribe/unsubscribe youtube gives the error "your session has expired, please login" and when I press the login button in the window it forwards me directly to the homepage of the channel I was trying to subscribe.

What I have tried: Delete cookies and data: nothing Uninstall firefox completely and delete all the data in user appdata folders and reinstall clean with a new profie: nothing

Any ideas? The same youtube account works perfectly on Chrome. I can post, subscribe, and get notifications.

This has become very frustrating since I use firefox since 2007 and I do not want to switch to another browser.

Thanks in advance.

I am running with firefox 79.0 and am using ubuntu 18.04

I have been using google hangouts for some time with no problems but, now, it will no longer work. It tells me that I have a problem with my camera/video and to check my network. My network is dandy. The only thing I could think of is that its a firefox problem. To check that I brought up google chrome and tried hangouts there and it worked just fine.

I have searched for a solution and found none although there has been an ongoing problem with hangouts for some time.. I suspect that some of the stuff that has been added to firefox to be the culprit but am not sure - hence this.

If anybody has a clue please let me know - thank you!
