For 3 days I have been trying to install Firefox. Firefox dowloads and starts installing. I have set Firefox as my default browser and turned off antivirus to not interfere with the install. It appears to install and then gives an error message that the address of the download file is incorrect (see attached JPG). I sometimes get a message about a file being corrupted (roughly one time in each five tries) also shown in the JPG. I have tried clean installs at least a dozen times (delete the programfiles/mozilla node and then do a fresh download. After clicking download have selected both run and save multiple times. I always get the error message about a bad address. Any help would be greatly apprediated. Thanks.

Please help to put FireFox back into shape?

I was using it without problem. But I had a glitch that could be cured only by temporarily making Internet Explorer my default browser. Problem now is that both are present despite my efforts to use only one, and both are now defective!

FIREFOX, on clicking always gives me the message below. Luckily I ignore it and I can use it, BUT, it appears without the toolbars and without the little Search window in the middle of its body:

<<The address isn't valid The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded.

   Web addresses are usually written like http://www.example.com/
   Make sure that you're using forward slashes (i.e. /).>>

INTERNET EXPRESS, I could never get the genuine one, but it said “Babylon.com”, then later it changed to “MSN.com” on the real IE logo! How do you get the real one? It’s a puzzle!

I’ll just have to forget for now about utilizing IE to fix that glitch, and hope someone could help me get FireFox in perfect condition as when I was using it before please?)

Thanks ever so much!  :) Adela

P.S. what does it mean "migration"? thanks.

On my home System, I am [still] running Windows XP. When I go to "Help -> About", I get the message that my version of Firefox (22, I think) is up to date. However, periodically, I keep getting pop-up pages that are blank except for a small square in the middle that states that my browser is out of date and I should "click here" to download the current version. Is this malware? How can I stop this from happening? I have run a couple of anti malware programs that indicate that everything is "clean" but I *still* periodically get these annoying pop-up pages. [Specifically, I have used Malwarebytes Anti Malware and run the full scan and that is in addition to using Norton 360 which also "runs clean".] At the same time, nothing else appears to be affected and currently I just cancel these pages. Any ideas? Note that I went to the "about:configure" exercise to look at the "useragent" and there was nothing there to reset (the "reset option" was "greyed out"). PLEASE NOTE: THE "PROBLEM" HAPPENS ON A DIFFERENT WEB BROWSER FROM THE ONE WHERE I AM POSTING THE QUESTION!!! THANK YOU!!

Since Ubuntu Mozilla Daily ppa is no longer regularly updated (see https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-daily/+archive/ppa ), I want to build my own self-signed Firefox packages similar to the ones created by Ubuntu Mozilla Daily; but I can't find anywhere the way they are built.

Actually I successfully compile Firefox, so I need just the necessary informations in order to build a deb package with it.

Thank you

Been having trouble w/Chrome would play audio only of Vimeo videos, fixed that but now will not display photos on Pinterest, only the links behind them. So I thought I'd try Firefox again, used to use it for several years. Downloaded and then thought I should sign up for your newsletters. But (using Chrome right now) I could not get the page to accept my subscription. Tried several times, refreshed, etc. Not sure why, seems strange.

I cannot access *.services.mozilla.com. The message displayed is 'Server not found'. I checked the status.mozilla.com and account.services.mozilla.com is said to be operating normally. I cannot even access it through mobile. Because of this, I cannot try to log in, or reset my password when I am trying to sync my laptop to my desktop. I was previously successful in syncing them a couple of months ago before I reformatted my laptop.

Thanks for any help!

This should be a simple process, as I have done it before on other computers - but the icon is only in my dock as a "?", which I click on , and then it opens up to the Fox/World icon. As soon as I shut down the computer - the Firefox icon disappears.

The virus affects the restore program. when the user tries to restore an earlier version the virus deletes the stub and the html files. what is needed is a federal agency that can prosecute microsoft. as i said before the best defense is to have a dvd containing all the firefox executables so that we can reinstall without having to connect through internet explorer. I am willing to buy this dvd - i think this is better than making a donation. The laptops are now programmed to have a return to factory installed condition. the dvd would come in handy then. it does mean losing several hours of work but that is the price of an insecure internet.

I run Ubuntu 10.10 LTSP server/client network and DO NOT want to upgrade Ubuntu... too much trouble, nobody can guarantee it will not hammer my LTSP install and besides, Unity is awful. I need newer Firefox due to some frequently used web pages, so I need an install procedure that will not hammer anything. It's a mission critical user environment. If anybody has positive experience with Firefox upgrade in similar environment please advise.

I was happily using Firefox & though it bombproof. Yesterday I tried to update, the update went through the process right until the end and then said something along these lines: *****installation interrupted****

So far I have tried these things: Offline installer, it just extracts then does nothing. Safe mode, then try the installer, same thing. Tried to uninstall firefox and delete anything on the computer that was firefox related. Tried rebooting of course. Kept trying the installer several times, also tried version 26. Run glaries & Iobit registry and system cleaners. Tried some solutions mentioned on this forum such as the "temp" folder tweeks. Still no progress.

I really really like Firefox and do not want to have to use IE.

Please help :)

I get no images or graphics in my Comcast email. I need to 'enable download pictures/graphics' I believe to fix this. Text within a blank graphics box stated this. I'm using Firefox version 27. Windows XP. Comcast email server. Graphics quite showing in my email several months back all of a sudden. I've cleared the cache and cookies. I believe I tried resetting Firefox to default settings. I could try this again. Don't remember if I did this before or after email graphic problems. Comcast tech support could not help me. Thank you.
