I recently installed an SSD with a new install of Windows and Firefox. I still have the old hard drive with Windows and Firefox installed on it in the same computer. I am trying to transfer the data (like passwords, bookmarks and other stuff like that) from the old versions to the new versions, but am having troubles finding how.

How do I get the new Firefox to look at the old hard drive to find the data?

Several days ago I got a message indicating that a firefox update could speed up my computer browsing, so I eventually gave permission for it, though changing my systerm makes me nervous. Now, after my computer was not letting me do anything for an extended period, today, I restarted it, and Avast vpn had been installed. Are you partnering with avast? Did this come with the Firefox update? I had a difficult time getting rid of their antivirus software before I could install the software I actually paid for from Eset. I don't want anything interfering with my antivirus software. Please advise. How can I make it go away? I've liked using Firefox and don't want to have to give it up, but am suspicious of this intrusion.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I like to install Firefox with the online stub setup, because it installs the latest version automatically. But in the first installation english is predefined and has to be changed later in settings manually (for every user account).

Is there the possibillity for a stub-setup (not the offline-version!) that installs Firefox in german language directly and if yes, can you tell me where I find the download for it?

With kind regards.

Firefox just updated, without my permission, which is another problem. But now when i try to open pdf files, firefox always ask what to do. In Options > General > Appliacations i set pdf files to open with firefox, but firefox still asks what to do. In the window where it asks what to do, there is a tick box saying "Do this automatically from now on", even if i choose that option it still ends up asking what to do the next time i open a pdf file.

I uninstalled Libre Office and it apparently uninstalled the VCRUNTIME140_1.dll file s part of its uninstall process. From this point Firefox would open but would not connect to the Internet, either by clicking one of the links in the toolbar or typing the address directly. I have tried all the solutions I can find on the support pages, ranging from attempting to copy the file from another location to re-installing Visual C++ from the Microsoft website, both the 64 bit and the x86 versions. Having found and installed the latest version of Visual C++ I now get the error message "The procedure entry point _CxxFramehandler4 could not be located in the dynamic link library C\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MSVCP140.dll" at the edn of the installation process, and of course Firefox has not installed. Any suggestions for a way forward?

I have tried repeatedly to add an Ad Blocker to Firefox (as I have in the past) but they do not work. I have looked for them after downloading but cannot find them on Firefox. Can anyone help me with this? Ad Blacker worked fine on my old iMac but not on the new one. I am not getting ads on my home page but I am getting two blocks of "code" where the ads would normally appear.

Thank you.

I cannot suddenly download my bank statements I am getting this message within the bank website:

"We're sorry, there was an issue when trying to retrieve your documents." this has only happened recently there reply to the question is as follows: Thank you for your email.

We understand experiencing issues with the website can be frustrating. This error is normally received when there is a browser compatibility issue. If the current browser does not allow you to access the documents, we would suggest using one of our other supported browsers: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari or Chrome.

Also I am having problems getting into my messages an Error comes up around 3 times before I actually get into them.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated....thank you

Read support article about importing username and password info direct from .CSV file. I see at the bottom of that article that if no such option presents (Import from file), I am to ensure that signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled is set to true. I don't see that operator within the listing of configuration options. I can create that operator and set it to true, but that doesn't make the 'import from file' option appear in the three dot drop down menu within the Logins and Passwords page. Has the title or location of the fileImport operator changed, been moved?

I got a bug, or a hack, or a virus that corrupted my FIREFOX so had to uninstall and re-install.

Have got most of it fixed except I can't get the BOOKMARK "BAR" to display [see pic attached].

If I select "Bookmark" on the top bar, it opens the bookmark window but I want it where it has been for over a decade, between HISTORY AND TOOLS.

I downloaded the current rel 86. My first FIREFOX copy was ~2004/2005 ver 1.0.
