I just updated Firefox on my Mac to Firefox 86.0 and the app itself became named Firefox 2. When it is running the name on dock is now Firefox 2.

I tried to change it back to plain Firefox (removing the space character and 2 from its name in the Application folder).

When I did that an relaunched it the display looked a bit weird and all of my bookmarks were gone!

Changing it back to Firefox 2 made it well again. I have never, ever seen Firefox do this.

When I turned on my computer this morning a message said I needed to download Firefox Update, so I clicked on that link. About a half hour later after it had also updated Windows 10 a page popped up telling me I had been sent a code to my email that I would need to input. I have not received an email or junk mail with any code. However, it looks like I already have Version 86. Please help me with this issue. I am so overwhelmed with computer issues I'm on the verge of tears right now. My last Windows 10 update Did NOT install and I am not the only one with this issue, but NO help from Microsoft. Did Mozilla update Windows 10 to accept the new version of Firefox? I looked at your educated guess, clicked on Show Details, nothing came up. Then I clicked on Troubleshooting Information and Share Data. I don't know if you are able to see this list or not, I don't know what 99% of it means, but I did copy a few things that may be helpful. environmentVariables": {

I already have VERSION 86 according to the information on Firefox. But the message I had this morning specifically asked to download FIREFOX latest version. Please help. Rhonda

With concerns about supply chain security, I would like the ability to ensure that the file download matches a recognized checksum.

Downloading from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.6.1/releasenotes/ yields checksum SHA256 55249C4861FE521CB32D72785481A146B64812AF2ECE7341FAAA5C79ABC0F395

This does not match any of the checksums available at: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.6.1esr/

Best practice would be to publish the official checksum along with the release notes.

Is there another way to close the loop on this?

I've noticed after an update ( Win) that Firefox will not remove non of the existing maps( installed ver).

But however when I do a update in Win ( still have Win 7) I go to Control panel->Programs->Add/remove programs. And do an removal via win add/removal tool.

But as I assumes that Firefox will create a library in win registery. But my point is if I can manualy delete the exsisting maps( librarys). Or Do I have to make a complete formating of my HDD?

But when I install Firefox at my Pc I have a separate partition at my HDD,to wich I install Firefox. Just in case not to infect or get rid of my existing installed programs. For an ex at my C:/ I only have installed my OS (Win)+sometimes Office.
