Using Windows 7. I have been running firefox for years. 3 weeks ago firefox wouldn't connect to the internet. Tab was saying 'forbinder...' in danish, that would translate into 'connecting...'. Nothing happened. No matter which website I tried to access, or which tab. Other browsers worked fine. I assumed an automatic update had gone wrong. I uninstalled, and got a fresh Firefox. It worked, and it had kept all my settings. Then some time after, I had the same issue. Could not connect. I used windows uninstall and installed a new copy. Worked. But then it happened again. Forth time around I decided to get rid of the mess. I used windows 'remove program'. I deleted the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox, the %APPDATA% roaming profile data also. And then did a fresh install. However, I am back to my old problem. I can't get thorugh to the internet. It is saying 'connecting', no matter which tab or website I use..

I found an issue related to an Nvidia firewall - I don't have that but other Nvidia software. I updated all to latest. Didn't work. I checked proxy settings, changed from system default to 'no proxy'. Checked if other browsers had different settings, which they didn't. So it didn't work. Then I tried messing with the Windows firewall, which is the only one running. When it didn't succeed I deleted firefox as recommended, to let it selfdefine at next startup. But windows firewall is apparantly not triggeded by firefox starting.

Help, please ;-)

Thank Flemming

Firefox is reporting (Help>About Firefox) that it is running v.43.0.1 and that "Firefox is up-to-date".

I'm not sure whether it is incorrectly reporting v.43.0.1 when it is in fact up-to-date, or thinks that v43.0.1 is the latest.

I could presumably download and install the latest version, but I am concerned why Firefox thinks it is up-to-date, when it clearly isn't.

I live in a remote and rural location. Dial-up internet is the only option. Broadband is not available.

The large Version 44.0 update file download will not remain on-line because of rural dial-up limitations.

I've tried a good quality Download Manager software. But the Firefox Update Version 44.0 webpage will not allow the RESUME command needed for a large file download using dial-up internet.

I cannot upgrade to Broadband. I cannot download the Version 44.0 file---it produces a corrupted file--or webpage refuses RESUME command.

A creative workaround from an open-minded Firefox savvy individual is requested.

Thank you in advance :)

...I upgraded my Firefox browser today to version 55.0, but when I restarted it, it wouldn't access any of the details of the Profile I use all the time... I have looked repeatedly, and there is never any History, either pre-existing, or newly created, and my Bookmarks and Fast Dial add-on aren't available... When I try to log into a site, however, it still remembers my Password data, and that is visible in the Options : Saved Logins popup... I had a similar experience with Firefox Developer Edition, and I finally gave up, and switched to regular Firefox, but I'm now running out of options!! I am running Windows 10, on a Laptop with a 6GHz processor

I have set my download on ask before downloading; however, I guess the program gets a little put off because it keeps asking and I keep saying "NO". Unfortunately, it takes it upon itself to download anyway. I love Firefox; however, I have been informed by my school where I teach online courses, that there are problems with Firefox 23 and our LMS. I DO NOT want to have to keep installing Firefox 22 throughout the semester. How can I get the damn browser to quit doing what it wants and pay attention to my settings? Thank you

Have used MF for years, liked it. Then today rec'd message to upgrade to new version. I did: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/ It sucks BIG TIME. There's no box to enter word/phrase search, and WAY too much product promotion. All I want is a simple to use search engine that has a box to enter in word/phrase searches. Wish now I wouldn't have "upgraded".

I recently updated FF to 30.0. Afterwards the browser would not work. It just comes up with a white blank page and no toolbar shortcuts that I have saved. I can type in an address but when I press enter or click Go it does nothing. None of the button seem to do anything so I can't even get into settings. I backed up my profile and uninstalled everything including user data but it still doesn't work. I installed an older version and it is working fine.

Hi

My PC is on Win9 and firefox. Reformatted 2 months ago.

Unable to save some webpages for the past couple of days, I did the usual "reset firefox" when I have these kinds of problems. But this time it would not reset. I get the msg:

"Well, this is embarrassing.

Firefox is having trouble recovering your windows and tabs. This is usually caused by a recently opened web page.

You can try:

   Removing one or more tabs that you think may be causing the problem
   Starting an entirely new browsing session"

No webpage was open at this time. Also unable to update firefox.

Please help.

Thanks

I cannot find any up to date information on the web as to whether firefox can be installed with Windows 8.1 I have a 64 bit operating system. Is there a way to do this? Or if not does anyone know if it will be available soon, or i'll have to use chrome which i don't like as much. I don't have much technical knowledge to do complicated things. I wonder if it works well on Windows 8 if i try and downgrade..... Not sure i know how to do that/ Any help be appreciated. thanks

I have got Nightly 49.0.2 build 1474711644.

Again & again I get all my settings reset, possibly even by a reinstall of Firefox. This seems to happen every day. It is bloody annoying because I have to correct my settings every time and I have my virus scanner rattling every time.

I have no clue what is happening. I have Update set to 'just check' or even 'never check', bu that does not make a difference. I do not even see new file dates, so it seems it is just the setting that get fucked up.

What is happening?!

What to do?!!
