I’m trying to run a program that requires silverlight and newer versions of Firefox don’t allow plug ins from silverlight. I have found a list of older versions of Firefox on Mozilla’s website but Once I click on a specific version several downloadable links pop up. Do I need to only download one link or several? Once I download the link do I have to move it to my applications or somewhere else to gain access to it?

I have a new computer and I had previously saved a backup of the files of my Firefox profile. I followed the steps in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles but it didn't work, none of my settings or bookmarks are in place. The backup profile had a different name so I copied the contents and I used the default profile that was created instead of creating a new one. Why didn't it work? Does it matter that I'm using the same profile from the backup on a different new computer as well?

Restore old version of Firefox and profile

I was running just "regular" Firefox on my Windows laptop. Yesterday my help desk had me upgrade to Firefox Extended Support Release to install a corporate email security certificate. I did not know when I installed this version of Firefox that it would overwrite my existing browser, and when it did, I lost all of my add-ins, extensions, bookmarks, etc. I'm hoping to be able to restore my old profile with all of the existing data I had. If I have to "downgrade" to regular Firefox I think that's fine since I just needed the ESR to install the security cert and that's complete now.

I looked on the about:profiles page and I have two other profiles, default and june19 (I presume the latter is from June 2019?), but I don't know how to determine which one is the preferred one. When I clicked Launch profile in new browser, it instructed me to create a new profile to protect my information and I hesitated to do that because I'm trying to restore an old profile, not create a new one. In case you can't tell, I'm not an advanced software user, so give instructions like you would to a 5-year-old or your grandma... lol. Thanks in advance!

I am using Firefox Nightly. It receives updates every day, but most of the time I cannot restart Firefox as soon as update is available. I want to delay it till next natural restart (ex.: night), however, Firefox shows notification about the available update. It's a minor issue, but seeing notification every day and having it to close every time gets annoying very quickly. I want to disable update notification but keep automatic updates. How can I do this?

There is a web page on my visited log I can not get rid of. Deleting the history causes the web page to be access again, dismissing it also brings it right back. I can verify with wireshark that the access is being triggered by deleting the history (clicking "Delete History" for that web page causes a flurry of internet activity on the ipaddress of the page in question).

I tried to uninstall and do a fresh reinstall (check mark for removing old plugins and such checked), but the old web pages still show up on the fresh reinstall.

Short of reformatting my hard drive and starting from scratch, or giving up and going to Chrome, how can I get a clean install?

Thanks, bt

I am using Firefox Browser V81.0 (64-bit) on MacOS Catalina and I'm experiencing issues with downloading files specifically from Google Drive. I can download other files using Firefox, but it doesn't work when using GDrive. I know it's an issue with Firefox because I've tried downloading the GDrive files using Safari and it's fine.

What happens is I'll click download and then there is no prompt that asks me if I'd like to download the file.

I also looked at this thread and followed the troubleshooting measures (including clearing the browser cache and starting Firefox in Safe Mode), but it did not solve the problem: [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1157677]

I've also tried un-installing/re-installing Firefox. And I have my adblocker disabled for Google Drive.

Any suggestions for how to resolve the problem?
