I don't remember installing Firefox, I must have.

When I do the normal windows uninstall, it uninstalls, but then it reappears later as if by magic.

How can I get it to uninstall and stay away?

I am trying to move Firefox to my wife's new computer. I have pulled the HD out of the old computer and have linked it to the computer I'm typing on via a USB port. On it, I can navigate to the Profiles directory but when I attempt to copy it to my HD on this computer, I get this error:

    0X80004005: Unspecified error

I've reviewed pages by searching on the error code but nothing comes up that is relevant. I've cleared permissions on the Profiles directory and all its files ... to no avail.

I'm stumped. Any suggestions?

My Bookmarks did not transfer over from either my prior Firefox browser or my Safari Browser. I could not find the bookmarks.plist for Safari, and the upgrade did not ask if I wanted my Firefox bookmarks transferred over.

I just migrated from Mojave to Monterey on new MBP14 using TM. the old profile opened but Preferences/Settings will not open to a tab. The only way to open is to go about:preferences then it will open

It opened to old profile and that was fine but now I can't get Preferences to open and I don't want to lose all the extensions and setup I have done over the years.

I was having problems with my email and was looking more closely at those settings as well as firefox/ deleted cache, cookies , etc. 5 months ago my email was hacked so I am being extra cautious....

I just discovered there are many items listed that say to save the application. I do not recall adding these.... How did they get there? I recall whatever was listed I chose that I be asked what to do with it. Here is a screenprint so you can see what the items are. I use Linux. The only change I made after seeing this is to ask me about anything not listed. The answer had been to save. Should I change them all to ask me? Most of the items I do not use and or know what they are. Thanks ! [email-removed]

I started using Firefox ESR a while ago when I had an older version of Mac OS. Now I am running High Sierra (OS 10.13) and I think I could use the standard release of Firefox, which may have newer features supported. How do I switch to that?

Hello,

I need to export many profiles that are connected to my FFX account. these are the profiles found by going to "about:profiles". These do not restore on a new computer after signing in to a ffX account.

I have followed the steps outlined in this support article but it does not work, and I don't think applied to "about:profiles". https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles YouTube videos also do not appear to focus on importing the 'about:profiles'.

If someone knows how to do this, I would be very grateful.


Thank you Liam

My HP Omen has 2 hard drives. Originally, Firefox was installed on the C: drive and working perfectly. In order to clear up space, I tried to use the Windows Move feature to move the program from the C: drive to the secondary (and larger) E: drive. Since then, Firefox won't work aside from opening a Firefox window. It will load no pages, settings, etc.

I've tried uninstalling Firefox from both the C: and E: drives. Searched for any remaining files and deleted them. Deleted Old Firefox Data folders. I've reinstalled Firefox, without the option of where to install it, but it still fails to work at all. I get an error message regarding a missing file, VCRUNTIME140_1.dll. I've searched for the file and it's NOT missing. It is in both the Firefox folder and the Windows/Systems32 folder.

I've searched for data in the Users folders that might relate to Firefox but NOTHING seems to work that will allow Firefox to work again. I've tried putting Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode but it won't restart as it says it needs to. It just won't work!

If anyone can just tell me how to COMPLETELY remove Firefox from both hard drives so that I can just do a clean, new Firefox install, that would be preferable. I know how to import bookmarks from Chrome.

If anyone can offer some help for someone who isn't great with computers, I would greatly appreciate it. If you need any other information, please don't hesitate to ask.

My computer is OS X Yosemite version 10.10.5.

I have updated with the newest Firefox web browser today. Now I can't open Firefox because my computer is too old for this new version. Because I have totally replaced my old one with this new, I cannot go back..

And actually, I don't know what is the right version for my computer. I think I found some very long list of old versions(https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/), I don't know which one is right for me and how to install from there - I tried some of them..

If anyone can post the link of right one for my computer and inform me how to install it from there, I'd really appreciate it..

Than you.

I'm well aware that they made changes to Firefox 98 and removed the option to Download without saving. However, the documented "fix" to change the about.config to disable a specific command is blocked when using the browser in an Enterprise setting (probably due to a group policy so employees can't tamper their browsers to do something they shouldn't do, like login using their personal accounts).

Note that the reason why Download without saving is useful is because I work a lot on one-off reports. It saves me a click of not having to deal with cleaning out my downloads folder. I feel that the devs have catered too much on the novice users and ignored the power users. At least Edge still allows you to do it.

is there a way to download the Firefox version before this without automatically updating to the latest one? I honestly don't like this change. I have transitioned my work to Edge, but one frustrating thing about it is I can't open reports of the same name. I do 2 passes on one report and put it on a template to combine them. Firefox allows me to download these reports at the same time, but having to sift through your download folder to delete the files you don't want to keep. I would want to give Firefox a chance if this is reverted, else, I will have to uninstall it because it doesn't serve me a purpose anymore as a browser to run and open one-off reports.

Or if there is a way to change browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to false even if access to about.config is blocked by Enterprise?

If you're going to do a future update, please do have a switch for us to go back to the old way of doing things without having to go through tampering config settings.
