(Image). For some reason tif files keep asking me if I want to open them in photos or save them, I *always* need them to be saved and having to manually select "download" each time can cause some files to be missed in the process and thus not downloaded. This is a bit of a problem for me since in one single day ill download some 30 images total.

Any tips on how to tell firefox to always download tif files?

After installing an update today the session restore for the latest version of FF did not restore all of the open windows and tabs. I have tried to restore the "Upgrade-js****" file in the sessionstore-backups folder but it too is incomplete and doesn't have all the windows or tabs. I do have a upgrade file from earlier but haven't tried it yet. What can I do? I have a college essay I am working on and now all my research tabs are gone.

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?

I was cleaning out my hard drive and deleting old installs of Microsoft Visual Studio Redistributable packages, and I almost certainly deleted the one that Firefox relies on.

I then attempted to start Firefox, getting the error, "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem."

I uninstalled, following the clean install directions, and deleting the "Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/" directory.

Then, I ran the Firefox Installer, newly downloaded, and when running it, it gives the same error, "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem." Selecting "Restore Defaults" has no effect either way. The installer then appears to complete in the background, and the Firefox directory is created, along with the executable.

When I run Firefox.exe, it seems to load the program, but any address I type in fails to begin loading. This includes websites (www.google.com) and help/utility pages (about:config). I'm therefore unable to change any settings within Firefox.

I then tried re-installing the "Visual C++ 2008" and "Visual C++ 2015-2019" packages in an attempt to restore that DLL, but that had no effect after repeating the same steps above (clean uninstall, re-install). Which VC++ Redist Package should I be re-installing? Ideally, I should be able to just get a copy of VCRUNTIME140_1.dll and place it where Firefox is looking for it.

Reading the several comments on this subject has not led to a solution. The Firefox Setup 81 and Installer are sitting in the downloads file, but when I click either "Open" or "Run as Administrator" I get a Windows "For security and performance Windows 10 in S mode...." followed by two options "Learn more" or "Switch out of S mode". When I choose the latter the "Switch out of S mode" page arrives. Now what? Thanks.

I have been getting notification to update Firefox but every time I try, it won't work. I have tried from the menu. I have tried updating from mozilla.org. I have tried downloading a new copy. Either the download doesn't work or the execution doesn't work. I temporarily disabled my virus protection and firewall just in case, but that didn't help. My next thought was to delete the Firefox copy I have. But what if I continue to not be able to install? Can anyone help with something other than what the website suggests? Thank you!

Today i opened mozilla, a troubleshooting message in english (my browser is set in italian) popped up, and then it asked me to Refresh Firefox (I had no idea it meant "back to factory settings")

Nothing difficult, i've re-installed mozilla last week after formatting HDD without a problem.

Now, instead, there's nothing.

Logged in, synced, nothing. Mozilla is brand new.

Tried to copy datas and paste them in the profile folder: nothing. Tried to copy the folder (the one inside the Old Firefox Data folder) into the profile folder: nothing.

Wouldn't be a huge mess, wasn't for the hundreds of password i've saved.

Thanks for the help! =)

Logins and passwords not imported in Version 81

To start off, I've never used the sync feature. Not that I think it won't work, I just haven't trusted the cloud enough yet. That being said, I know my logins and passwords are stored in the "profile" in the appdata of mozilla firefox, on this local computer. To my knowledge, this information is stored in the "logins.json" file located in my default profile. Up until now, I have had no issues retrieving the information I need. However, after this morning, when Version 81 was installed, I visited a website where I needed a particular login. I normally have Firefox automatically populate this information, on this particular site. However, since that did not happen this time, I checked my "logins and passwords" page, only to find "No logins found" on the sidebar, and "No synced logins found" in the main space, with instructions on how to sync from other devices or import from other browsers. Since I have not had a login before (for Firefox), I created an account to see if I could import the information from a previous version. However, only other browsers were listed, and I can't sync from another device, as the information is stored on this machine. Creating an account has also allowed me to post here...

I have opened the logins.json file with notepad, and the logins-backup.json file, and both are full of information. Of course it's not plain text, but the information is there. I can also open these files with Firefox, however, it doesn't recognize the file as the "logins and passwords" file, it just displays the encrypted information in a different (html?) format.

Any advice on how I can import these 55+ logins and passwords without re-creating or changing each one of them? Thanks.

I want to download/update to Firefox v.80.01 for Windows 64-bit, but every time I try to download anything at all, Firefox pushes 81.0 on me (just released today), which I do NOT want. I'm running the latest "Extended Support" release (79.0 64-bit). I'm 80 and do NOT want to test software. Do I have to keep running v.79 if I don't want v.81, or can I download the version I want?

How can I get Firefox v.80.01?

Thanx, Anne F.

I just got a new Mac. I've had Firefox on my old Mac for years.

During installation on the new machine, I must have made a mistake/been too hasty.

In the first instance, I dragged the Firefox icon into my Apps folder, but since it didn't appear in my list of applications, I tried to run it from the .dmg package directly.

Since then, I realised I'm not supposed to do this. So I've deleted everything Firefox from my computer and restarted it several times.

However, each time I now re-download the Firefox installer and go through the steps to instal it, the same thing happens: it only ever runs from the .dmg package. Whenever I delete the .dmg from my computer Firefox stops running.

Can someone help? Thank you!
