Windows 10 - Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon This fall after an update attempt, Firefox started trying to update every time it was started. Deleted Update files in Program Data. FF would restart normally one time. Update data files were always replaced and the update on every startup continued - over and over and over. Tried refreshing FF- same thing. Uninstalled FF this AM and tried to reinstall when I get the following error:

XULRunner Error: Platform version "94.0.2" is not compatible with minVersion >= 94.0.1 maxVersion <= 94.0.1

No FF - HELP!

All of a sudden Firefox has ceased to react when I'm trying to download a file/save a page. When I click Cmd+S or File → Save page as…, nothing happens. When I try to open an upload dialogue, a solid gray window appears, and that's it. Uploading files through drag&drop interface works fine.

The problem seemingly appeared after migrating from a Mac Mini to a Macbook Air (both M1). I've already tried to restart the laptop and refresh Firefox — to no avail.

Is there anything else I could try to do?

I work on computers without admin rights, and i can't install add-ons,

how to make a true portable Firefox without using registry at all

I really don't understand that a free software allows such a blocking, even if chrome doesn't pose any problem with add-ons.

is there a way to lanuch firefox with a option to not use registry or to redirect registry in file or in a not locked custom registry like

hkey_local_machine/software/policies/Mozilla_portable/Firefox

or something like that ?

I have a 2013 MacBook Pro Retina running Big Sur 11.6. Every time I install Firefox 92.0 my computer just shuts down turning off. I have tried disabling hardware acceleration, safe mode to no avail. Even after I get Firefox installed and open it, it may run for a couple of seconds then immediately shut off.

I am testing FF91esr for deployment later this year. Having a lot of grief with it.

For context; On most of our PCs the profile folder is NOT in the %APPDATA% folder. It lives on a different drive, typically drive F:\

This allows us a lot of freedom to restore a users C:\ drive without messing up the Firefox profile, or losing recent information, for example. We do the same for Thunderbird and several other applications.

The profile.ini file does live in its default location and points to the relavant folder path=F:\Users\<username>\profiles\<profilename> IsRelative=0

We backup a users PC with a comprehensive script which copies the profile.ini and Profiles folder. The group policy is also backed up, and in that policy we have set to use legacy profiles.

When we build a new PC for a user we restore those backups in the hope that the user will take up where they left off. For example, their browser history will be at the point is was when they left the PC.

The whole process is pretty automated. However, with FF91esr I cannot get it to use the folder we backed up. It ignores what's in the profiles.ini file and creates a new profile in the default location, set's it as default and of course sets IsRelative=1.

I tried several combinations of things to try to stop this, but in the end the ONLY way I could get it to use the restored profile was to go to about:profiles, create a new profile, point it to the folder where the restored profile is located, restart using the new browser, then via about:profiles, delete the bogus profile (of course having set the restored profile as default).

I'm not going to sit at 250 PCs doing that. It's crazy.

How can I get FF to use the restored profile folder and stop it endlessly creating new profile folders?

So far I've only tested with clean installs of FF91esr, so this is not an issue with different versions of profiles. But I am concerned over what's going to happen when I update Firefox on a PC...

I just recently updated my Macbook Air to Big Sur and downloaded Firefox to use as my default browser. Installation went smoothly and I am able to use the program as intended. When I click on an external link, an window pops up and tells I do not have permission to open the app and to contact my computer or network administrator for support.

I am not computer savvy when it comes to programming and would love any help anyone has to offer.

Most appreciative.

Hi there, I'm having trouble opening firefox that suddenly didn't open after I've used it as usual. When I've closed it, I've put the macbook on sleep mode and then reopen it after 10 minutes and tried to open firefox as always. It didn't. I'm trying to figure it out and I've followed all the possible paths on Mozzilla's support and others blogs, but none of them worked out. I've tried also to uninstall and re install firefox from scratch, but nothing happens: I still get the message. At this point I don't care if I need a fresh start, I have a bookmark's backups so, how can I really uninstall Firefox and install it from the beginning? Is there a hidden folder I'm missing? Thank you in advance

I was switching my browser from Brave, a chrome based browser, back to Firefox because Brave doesn't can't run some of the stuff my uni learning management system (LMS). I tried importing my browser bookmarks and passwords to Firefox but the importing feature on Firefox doesn't show Brave as one of the browsers it can take the data from. I want to know if there's anyway I can fix this or if there's no hope for importing data from chromium browsers to Firefox.

I am using Linux Mint 6.0.3.1 , and my Mozilla Firefox version is 77.0.1 . My Firefox will not update, neither automatically nor when prompted. When I go to all the pages for downloading and installing the newest Firefox, I am always able to download a package, which appears as a folder labeled " firefox-89.0.2.tar.bz2 " but then I cannot install it, it just appears as a folder full of files that will not run. I have tried following the command lines in the terminal that these pages claim will make the new version run, but I always just get a response like "no such command" or "no file exists." Shouldn't there be some relatively simple and reliable path to just get firefox 89 onto my computer?

I am using Firefox-ESR on my Kali linux distro. I am unable to load any webpages on Firefox but other browsers can load. I tried all the steps like clearing every history, cache, etc. I have even reinstalled several times but it is only loads for 2-3 seconds and shows a white blank page and nothing else. I have gone through your tutorial of "Firefox can't load but other browsers can" but it is not helping. There is no problem of proxy either.

Edit Update : I need the Firefox-ESR installed as default. I downloaded new version Firefox-ESR=78.11.0esr from Firefox download page and it loads webpages. But the latest Firefox downloaded from apt is Firefox-ESR=78.10.0esr. I cannot update Firefox as new downloaded version has executable file name as 'firefox' but default has executable file as 'firefox-esr' in '/usr/lib'. I have two different versions of Firefox-ESR installed now because of the installation procedure given in Firefox install tutorial page. I am also not able to find the new version browser in 'x-www-browser' in 'update-alternatives' to set it as default. I want the Firefox installed with all features as default one. I think I have not installed new version of Firefox-ESR correctly. I just want to update Firefox but not to install another version of it. Thank you.

I've had Firefox running on this PC for a couple of years and started running into problems with it. I've tried refreshing, reinstalling, restoring the machine back to prior system restore points, nothing seems to work. It all seems to revolve around the ntdll.dll. I've included some event viewer info and the content of Report.wer.

It seems Firefox has been banned from this machine.

Let me know if there is anything else I should provide.

Thanks.
