Hi,

Sorry if this is a stupid question - I just can't find anything online that works. I'm trying to move the entirety of Firefox from my C:\ drive to my D:\ drive in order to reduce writes to my SSD. I'm trying to use mklink with this command to move my profiles from appdata:

mklink /J "C:\Users\[name]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles" "D:\Programs\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles"

However, when I try and execute it I get the result "Cannot create a file when that file already exists." Does anyone know how to fix this?

Dies machte Ich mit dem gedanken , das evtl. ein Miniupdate sein könnte, ich installierte die gedownloadete Version Firefox 79. Aber wieder kann ich keine Addons installieren, als hätte ich kein Firefox...??? Bitte um Hilfe, Danke


.. I have the current Firefox 79 version, wanted to install an addon, there comes the message " for Firefox, download Firefox"...

I did this with the thought that it might be a mini update, I installed the downloaded version Firefox 79. But again, I can't install any addons as if I didn't have Firefox...??? Please help me, thanks

My windows 10 is forcing me to update windows. If i ignore the warnings. it just kills my unsaved work and restarts my computer. To make it worse. After I start Firefox again is starts to update too. And after the update all my Open tabs and session info is completely killed. The first time it was annoying. be now it is a reason to go back to an other browser. The last time i checked i was still the owner of my laptop. and not Microsoft and not Mozilla!

If this bug is not fixed I uninstall Firefox. I need a browser i can rely on. not just doing what it wants.

Firefox has been consistently misbehaving in that it will not launch but shows as being open. Quitting the app and trying to re-launch achieves nothing but frustration. I tried starting in Safe Mode but no response so deleted from apps, downloaded a new copy and tried re-installin..After several failed attempts all I can get is a dialog box that tells me it is 'preparing to copy to applications'. The process never completes. Please help. I need clear, step by step instructions, please, preferably with screenshots of critical steps. Do not assume that I have a great depth of knowledge about things Apple or their OS X or you may as well write the reply in Swahili. I shall not comprehend. With gratitude, JohnjackS
