Getting URL of latest version of an extension

Greetings,

I am a sysadmin working on an enterprise deployment of a Firefox extension, specifically this one: https://addons.mozilla.org/hr/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/

It's a password manager called BitWarden.

I am deploying the extension using the official Firefox ADMX templates, so far I configured most settings correctly. When I am deploying the extension to my users (I am using Microsoft Intune), I need to provide an URL from where the extension will be downloaded. I found that URL by copying the link from the 'Add to Firefox' button from the https://addons.mozilla.org/hr/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/ link.

I found the link to be: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/3843699

What I want to know is the following: 1. Will this link stay the same for all future BitWarden extension versions? 2. Is this something that changes when a new Bitwarden extension gets released or is this link static? 3. Is there perhaps a link which automatically redirects the download to the latest available version?

Some online guides say that a 'latest.xpi' string needs to be appended to the add-on's page (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/ in this case), but I found that not to work. If I go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/latest.xpi, it throws an "page not found" error.

Thank you in advance!

Best regards, Nemanja Simpraga

We have around 1000 Firefox installations on our government organization, all installed via the Firefox MSI installer. Unfortunately, we came late to realize that the Firefox ESR would be a much more suitable product, compared to the normal Firefox branch.

Now, some years ago we would simply mass uninstall the normal Firefox and mass install the (latest) ESR version and all would be well. Problem is that we have to keep existing profiles (including passwords/bookmarks etc), something that is not supported in the latest Firefox builds.

Can anyone offer some advice/"hacks" to accomplish this? Note that whatever we'll do, we'll have to do it automatically, we lack the man-power to do this manually on a system by system basis...

Thanks in advance for any information provided.

On the release notes of 78.15 is states: This is the final planned ESR78 release. Eligible users will be automatically updated to the ESR91 release on November 2.

Never saw this kind of text from mozilla before. Does this mean that unlike previous versions, 78.15 will no longer give you the option to decline automatic updates?

I get this message when I try to logged into my Yahoo Email.


The latest version of AT&T Yahoo Mail is not supported on your browser. Please use a supported browser below or use basic Mail, it keeps coming up no matter how many times I try to reinstall Firefox.

   Open now
   Microsoft Edge
   Requires Edge 15 or newer
   Download
   Google Chrome
   Download
   Firefox
   Continue
   Continue with basic Mail
   This version has fewer features but supports older browsers.

Does anybody know the meaning of this error code? Is there a resource out there that I could find which lists the meanings of other error codes? Or am I going about this the wrong way entirely, and there is some better solution for automating firefox updates? Any help is appreciated.

Using Firefox browser for iMac. Recently (10/10/2021) attempted to download .aax files from Audible.com. Files were unexpectedly converted to .mp4 files, making files unusable by iBooks. Conferred with Audible Tech support. Audible Tech confirmed that .aax files are the proper format and that they did not/do not make any format conversions on their end. Audible Tech then suggested trying download with Safari. Download (of .aax files with Safari) was successful and maintained proper (.aax) format. Audible Tech said that he had not encountered this issue before and that it seemed to him that the Firefox browser may be responsible for the unexpected conversion. In the past I have used Firefox many times to successfully download .aax files from Audible.com, most recent prior to this problem was on (9/11/2021). I am notifying you simply to advise that you may have a programing glitch within the download programing portion of the latest version of Firefox (ver. 93.0 - 64 bit) for iMac(s).

I used to run Firefox 88.0.1 (64 bit) on a Windows 7 PC. With lots of help from this forum I wrote a userchrome.css file to make several changes to the appearance.

On a new Windows 10 machine I installed the same version of Firefox (since I don't care for the latest one). I added my old profle to the new installation and selected it as the default.

Unfortunately, when I opened the program I was prompted to create a new profile; there didn't seem to be any way around this. So I let it happen and tried simply copying my old chrome folder into it - I thought at least I could make the visual changes even if I couldn't import my bookmarks and so on.

But this didn't work either: when I run the program, none of the expected changes are there.

Presumably I've done something wrong, but what, exactly? I'd be grateful for any thoughts. Ideally, I'd like to use the whole of the old Win7 profile but if that's not possible at least changing the appearance would be pleasant.

Many thanks.

I purchase audiobooks on Audible.com using my Mac (OS Catalina). When I download a purchase Firefox sends it as an MP4 file which is incompatible with the apps to play the audiobook. Safari and other browsers do no do this - the files come as an .aax file. Even after I have an .aax file I cannot play it using Firefox because Audible.com does not recognize my registered computer. I get an error message: Document "LicenseForCustomerToken" couldn't be opened. Incompatable with QuickTime Player. FYI: QuickTime Player is a video (MP4) player app on my computer. So, once again, Firefox makes the .aax file appear like an MP4 file to Audible. It's doing some kind of unrequested and unwanted conversion of .aax files to MP4.

I hope you can fix this in your next update. i've worked with Audible to solve this issue, but they cannot help and are telling me it is a "known issue" with Firefox and recommend I use a different browser.
