The install was apparently successful, I got a restart prompt and said OK. Firefox 17 shut down, but there was no restart. Attempts to launch Firefox from icons or the Start menu get no reaction.

The Firefox.exe in Program Files is version 17.0.1.4715. It will not execute.

Anti-virus Avast (but I've done plenty of Firefox updates before with this installed, and no conflict).

Since we are using mandatory profiles for all users, after firefox gets updated the user is forced to see "Hooray! Your Firefox is up to date." message every time the log in and start the browser. It is not easy or possible to update user profiles each time the firefox gets updated. Besides lately it happens very often. Where can I globally in server side disable this annoying message? Or at least how can I manually edit preferences file stored in the mandatory profile folder to disable this annoying message?

I am trying to implement a suggested solution to Search on home page does not work. To do this I am advised to reset the key - browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone.

I do this and check the value in pref.js and via trouble shooting information. The value has been removed.
I exit FF. Checking pref.js shows value not present in file.
I restart FF and the line has been restored to pref.js (confirmed by troubleshooting info) .

How do I stop this value from being reinstated ?

I have purchased a new Windows 7 64 bit computer. My old computer was a 32 bit Windows XP. I cannot get the new computer's Firefox version 18 to read the profile data from my old XP computer. I have renamed the old profile file to the correct name for the new computer but none of the bookmarks, passwords, add-ons etc. appear in my new computers Firefox. The correct profile file is being accessed by the new computer as I can see the modification time etc is changing when using windows explorer. Is the new computer being a 64 bit the problem or is there some way that I can get the old profile migration to work or do I just have to start again from scratch?

Will I have a similar problem with Thunderbird?

I can't believe this problem is STILL not solves with FF18.

Whenever I'm saving a bunch of images it will constantly change from where I last saved it. Eg. I save "pic 1" in "Cool pics" folder. I then go to save "pic 2" it won't remember that I saved "pic 1" in "cool pics" and it will bring up a completely different directly. Very annoying.

I found this thread from a couple years ago with the same problem http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/882443

I can't believe this hasn't been fixed yet!

Is there something I can do to work around this? Otherwise I'm going to have to switch to a different browser because this doesn't happen in IE.

Thanks

Using the step by step instructions from the above article - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/import-bookmarks-internet-explorer - I am still unable to import ALL my favorites from IE; only those beginning with the alphabets A to E (so just over 50%) are imported to a file at the bottom of Bookmarks entitled 'From Internet Explorer) - I tried unsuccessfully three times; A to N only were imported three times. Nor did the suggestions to import manually from IE (same computer) work either. Any more suggestions?

Hi,

running Firefox 17.0.1 on my SuSE Linux 11.2 works fine.

As I updated to Firefox 18.0 in Windows, I also downloaded the US-english version for Linux (firefox-18.0.tar.bz2) and unpacked it. The big disappointment: IT DOES NOT WORK!

XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /root/test/firefox/libxpcom.so: libxul.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Couldn't load XPCOM.

I removed the installation, restarted the system, installed again. No change. I tried the German package - the same problem.

What am I doing wrong? Is this a known issue? Any remedy?
