Failure to install extensions

My installation of 32-bit Firefox 102 had been repeatedly crashing, sometimes for no apparent reason. I decided to download the 64-bit version of Firefox 102, uninstalled the 32-bit version, carried out a standard installed and all this appeared successful. I noticed that I was getting a lot of advertisements and remembered that I had had Ghostery installed as an extension in my 32-bit Firefox. I went to the extensions page, selected Ghostery and asked for it to be added. Shortly after that, I got a message that the installation had been aborted because the extension might be corrupt. I tried again and got the same message. I tried another ad blocker, and got the same message with that one; and tried a third with the same result. What is going on? I haven't changed any settings in Firefox since the standard installation, and the extensions were from the Firefox source, so how can the extensions be corrupt? If it isn't corrupt, why isn't Firefox installing it?

I'm using freshly-downloaded Firefox version 102.2 on a brand new laptop (Windows 11 Pro version 21H2), and every single extension is showing a "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt" message when I try to install. I have tried checking for updates, quitting and reopening firefox, restarting my computer, refreshing firefox, uninstalling and reinstalling firefox, as well as any and all combinations of those. I've scoured these message boards and nothing is working for me. Please help!

Hello,

I'm using Firefox 102.0 (64-bit) on Win 10. When I click on the download icon of email attachments or Whatsapp files, firefox opens the pdf files in a new tab instead of downloading them. All other file formats are downloaded correctly instead. How can I correct this problem, please?

Best regards, Giovanni

Gmail freezes & keeps trying to connect. All other sites work & there is no problem with internet connection or speed. Refreshing the tab does not help. I have to close and restart Firefox. I've tried disabling all extensions but as this only happens once every day or so it is difficult to troubleshoot. I have these extensions: AdBlocker Ultimate; Copy Page Address; Copy PlainText; DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials; Enhancer for YouTube; Google Page Translate; Reverse Google Image Search; Tab Mix - Links; Wikipedia-En; YouTube search engine. Thanks.

I believe my IP address has been tagged as a bot. The issue listed below happens when using both Mozilla and Google Chrome browsers. Here's my story... I'm not very savvy at purchasing tickets through second-party websites. My troubles may have begun when I forwarded the initial email to my daughter to claim the ticket barcodes; she's the person I purchased the tickets for as a gift.

  • She did try to collect the tickets through my forwarded email and was directed to the original seller's website. I did list her email address as the owner of the tickets. She did receive an email asking if she would like to finish the purchase.
  • As my daughter was reading this email, I was trying to pay for the tickets through PayPal, but the transaction did not go through as I had expected.
  • I then went back to TicketNetwork.com and canceled the tickets. This time, I used my email address as the address to send the ticketing information.
  • Then, I returned to TicketNetwork.com and repurchased the same group of tickets using my PayPal account. This time after checking PayPal, the transaction did go through.

While trying to purchase concert tickets through TicketNetwork.com and then being directed to Ticketmaster.com, and somewhere while trying to retrieve three tickets at Ticketmaster.com, this is what pops up on the screen: "Pardon the Interruption As you were browsing, something about your browser made us think you were a bot. There are a few reasons this might happen:

    You're a power user moving through this website with super-human speed.     You've disabled JavaScript in your web browser     A third-party browser plugin, such as Ghostery or NoScript is preventing JavaScript from running."

After looking into the JavaScript running on my laptop, the program is stilled installed. I did not find Ghostery or NoScript installed within the system.

A friend suggested that my IP address has been tagged as a bot because of the several attempts to retrieve the concert tickets through my daughter's and my email address. Another red flag may have been that both of us attempted to claim the tickets at TicketNetwork.com and followed Ticketmaster.com within a relatively short period.

My tale has ended, to the best of my recollection. Can you help me eliminate this IP bot with the above information? Many thanks, Mary

Hi there,

I have a problem. I had two windows with aprox 30 really important tabs each open at all times. Somehow firefox closed those two windows when I opened a third window (I don't know why and it doesn't matter tbh) and I didn't notice. I opened other temp windows and because of that the previous two with the important tabs were deleted from the chronic.

Is there any way at all to restore those two?

In my sessionstore-backups directory there are six files. previous.jsonlz4, recovery.baklz4 and recovery.jsonlz4. The other two are upgrade.jsonlz4 with a date at the end. The last one is from 20220630. Could this possibly be some older backup from my chronic with my old two windows? If so, is there a way to restore those? Just renaming them didn't seem to work...

I'd be glad for any help anybody could give me. :)

'Why am I still seeing blinking ads on firefox pages? I thought you totally solved this problem ? I have been using firefox ad blockers for months with great success; but suddenly they stopped functioning efficiently. Since firefox took them OUT OF MY UPPER TOOLBAR SEVERAL WEEKS AGO . 'Thus I have no idea if they are working or not.' There was no announcement of changers or any update that I know of.

Otherwise with no help from firefox, the last resort will be switching to an independent vpn to resolve firefox ad issues... For years I had no issues with firefox or even ad blocking problems; but now ads and firefox's constant need to take TOTAL control of everything has become a major issue.

If all fails, the last hope will be turning to Express VPN...Thanx for any help you can give...rjk
