Howdy, fellow Firefox aficionados.

I'm running FF on a Windows 10 Home 64-bit desktop. Some time ago, I suddenly could no longer open Firefox because it couldn't find my Profile. So, I attempted to create a new one, but it would not allow me to do so.

"Changes Not Saved"

   "An unexpected Error has prevented your changes from being saved."

[See uploaded Image]

More than likely, either I, or one of my system maintenance programs wiped some data or folder. I have deleted Firefox and reinstalled it with the latest version, but this dilemma persists.

Thanks for reading my post and if you reply, a big Thanks!

Hi,

I have a fresh installation of my Macbook OS, and a fresh Mozilla Firefox installation. I would like to re-import my old passwords and log ins, but it seems that the new version of the browser doesn't have that option unfortunately. I can see only Import from Other Platforms options, but not import from file or similar.

I have .csv file, but no option of how to import in into my browser.

I would appreciate help on this one. Thank you in advance.

Sasha

When I try to open any PDF file, I have to Browse to find my pdf viewer (Flexipdf). I do that and also check your "Save this for future" option. Every time I try to open a pdf after that I still have to go through all the Browse steps. I also set up Flexipdf in your Settings and it just gets ignored.

Hi,

I am on a Mac Pro running High Sierra. Everytime I launch Firefox I get a error message that "this file may harm your computer" which is a .dmg in my downloads toolbar. I think I clicked on a bad link. I have cleared my cache and history and it still always pops up. I do not want this file nor do I want it to give me this warning everytime I launch Firefox.

Any advice is helpful.

Thanks

Download Temporary/Cache File Location

I have been trying to locate the temporary file of the failed download video file. I was downloading a huge video file (78 GB) and the system froze in the middle of it. So I was forced to cut the power and restart the laptop. After restarting, I saw that my system drive is still filled with the temporary file (part), but I couldn't locate it and delete the temp file. It has taken up about 40 GB of my system drive space because the download was more than half way through.

When I started the download, I selected an external drive as the destination. However, I have been observing Firefox download behavior and I am pretty sure Firefox would download as much of the file to system drive as possible, until the system drive is full, then moving onto the destination drive, which has been a huge inconvenience, because of the huge video files that I am dealing with.

I have already cleared the file and the .part in the destination drive, but failed to locate the rest of the temp file in my system drive. I have searched the internet and found no mention of such problem. So I am seeking professional help here.

Attached is a screenshot showing how much space is used by checking the system drive properties, against the properties of all files in system drive (including hidden). The number doesn't add up, and there are 52 GB of files unlocated.

What setting will stop the constant notice "Download the latest version of Firefox." I don't want 20 notices per day. It's like having a child in the backseat "are we there yet?" "are we there yet?" "are we there yet?" How many times do I have to click the "Dismiss" button before this stupid software understands that I do not want updates? I've noticed that this is a common complaint. Stop the bullying by making people choose automatic updates. Many times things get messed up on my computer with updates and it is not worth the aggravation. Candace M.

I updated my OS X to 10.11.6 recently. Firefox is dead. I attempting to install an update as instructed on Mozilla. Does not work. I tried the “enterprise” version, too. It doesn’t work. Tried to recover via Time Machine - since it was system update that didn’t work, either. I’ve lost all my bookmarks. WHAT can I do? Sending using Safari 11.2 since FF is dead.

As the subject says, my download speeds are painfully slow (~200KB/s) and they have been for a while. My download speed is ~85Mbps and I use Ubuntu 20.04.

Installing a download manager extension only improved the speed to ~300KB/s (I tried Multithreaded Download Manager. I also tried increasing the number of threads in preferences to no effect).

The problem has persisted over time and across multiple restarts. This problem does not persist in other applications (Steam, for example).Neither disabling my VPN or running sudo UFW disable affected the speed (didn't restart because UFW disable doesn't require a restart [I think] and due to the above paragraph).

All solutions I have found have been related only to Windows users, hence why I am asking this even though there is a plethora of threads on this same issue. Any responses and help is appreciated!
