I installed firefox, after the first start it asks to create profile, I choose to create new one, use default folder, but it says that profile cannot be created as this folder isn't writable. Why is that? I opened that folder and I can write files into it and create subfolders. It means that folder is writable. What's the browser that I can't even start after installation?

hi,

i'm on osx, 10.15.3, catalina...

current browser version is 60.0.3

have been suggested by turbo tax to update the browser, so i clicked update from the firefox browser. then a dialog box pops up asking to restart/install now, and i've said yes many times, but each time, it restarts and the same dialog box pops up.

I restarted the browser manually as well.

the browser is not updated. still running 60.0.3

Nach dem Start von Firefox öffnet sich das Fenster aber: ohne Inhalt, ohne Adresszeile, ohne Menüleiste - es ist nichts vorhanden. Nur ein weißes Rechteck. So dass nicht einmal der Reparatur-Modus von Firefox gestartet werden kann. Man kann zwar irgendwo intuitiv herumklicken, aber man kann mit dem neuen popup nichts anfangen, s. Beispiele, da beim Klick auf einen Parameter nichts kommt.

Virenprüfung (Kaspersky in der akt. Version): keine Verbesserung Firefox-Start abgesichert: dto.

Deinstallation und Neuinstallation der aktuellen Version 78.02. : gleiches Ergebnis

In Edge ist das Problem nicht vorhanden.

Hello, this is getting annoying, i already reinstalled Firefox and again i get this message in top right corner: "Firefox can't update". I have checked in setting: automatically install updates. However i disabled background service. I don't want to use it. And automatic updates are still enabled, so there shouldn't be reason for it - to not work. Thanks for answer.
