This is my Mac Monterey. My Windows 10 is in Safe Mode With Networking. The last update will not download. That version is 125.0.3. What's available under Windows updates does not download either. Now I am running my antivirus on my Windows to see if it runs clean. I do not know why I cannot apply these updates.

Hi there. I wiped my C Drive and reinstalled windows 11 on my PC. Completely from scratch.

The first few thing I did is download firefox. I believe in the first boot of firefox, I can download things fine, I installed Ublock Origin add-on and a few installers for the app that I need to use. I can't recall when, but after a few reboot, I noticed that Firefox can't download anything, every download link I click on, the download fail instantly, I can't install add-ons as well.

I tried reinstall firefox, changing download folder target, nothing helped.

Can you take a look please? Thank you!

Tēnā koutou (Hello everyone),

I deleted Firefox to re-install it after playing with profiles and that not working how I wanted it to (yet). I uninstalled the app from the applications and the library on my Mac and reinstalled Firefox. Now when I open Firefox it says that it's up and running but no windows actually open up for me. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it again and it still won't open windows. I have to force quit Firefox as nothing shows up in my top tool bar to even show Firefox as open.

How can I get Firefox to actually install and be functioning on my computer again?

Running (as of an hour ago) macOS 14.5 (was using previous up to date OS when I installed Firefox again.

TIA

After the 115.11.0 ESR Update All My Settings Are Gone, No Way Back

I've just updated from 115.04esr to 115.11esr for macOS to the heap of unwelcome troubles. This experience is extremely unfriendly and annoyingly brazen on part of the Firefox developers.

Every time I launch the browser it starts up from its default profile, not mine. I lost access to all my themes, extensions, history, devices and settings as a consequence, and cannot regain it.

All efforts to launch FF from another profile upon opening of a new instance resulted in a dialog nagging me to move the app to /Applications even though I always kept it in a subfolder of my choosing, and intend on continuing to do so. Refusing to submit opens the default new Firefox profile in every instance.

Closing Firefox instances is impeded by a Chrome-like first-after-installation closure prompt asking to have the browser warn me every time I'm closing the browser. Repeatedly rejecting the prompt makes no difference.

The flatly blunt and pervasively arrogant manner, in which the new Firefox forces its way, is off the charts and is unacceptable.

Is there a straightforward way of restoring the old behaviour and telling it to honour my settings?

How can I sign in to Netaddress with the new Firefox update?

I'm afraid that as I am old and female I haven't a clue how all the information below can help. What can I do with it? As I can't access my only email address, I'm not sure how I can follow instructions.

Fingers crossed for some information. At the moment all I get is 'bad request'.
