Hello,

I followed these install instructions (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos) to install Firefox on my new Chromebook but I got this Linux Terminal error message when I attempted the final step of installing Firefox:

flatpak install firefox Looking for matches… error: No remote refs found similar to ‘firefox’

I am a novice and thank you for your help.

Hi, The problem I have is that when i download a screenshot in Firefox, left click the download arrow in the top right corner, click on the file, I get a message that says "the app didn't start". Never had the problem in November but seems to have happened after a Firefox update. I have the most current updates for Windows 10 pro 64, Firefox has been removed and reinstalled, Comodo was disabled, Strong VPN was disabled, browser privacy was set to standard, I have set up a separate folder for Firefox downloads and get the same message. I should note that these are all .png files. What app do I need and is it a Windows or Firefox app? Thank you for any help.

Hi,

I am on a Mac Pro running High Sierra. Everytime I launch Firefox I get a error message that "this file may harm your computer" which is a .dmg in my downloads toolbar. I think I clicked on a bad link. I have cleared my cache and history and it still always pops up. I do not want this file nor do I want it to give me this warning everytime I launch Firefox.

Any advice is helpful.

Thanks

Download Temporary/Cache File Location

I have been trying to locate the temporary file of the failed download video file. I was downloading a huge video file (78 GB) and the system froze in the middle of it. So I was forced to cut the power and restart the laptop. After restarting, I saw that my system drive is still filled with the temporary file (part), but I couldn't locate it and delete the temp file. It has taken up about 40 GB of my system drive space because the download was more than half way through.

When I started the download, I selected an external drive as the destination. However, I have been observing Firefox download behavior and I am pretty sure Firefox would download as much of the file to system drive as possible, until the system drive is full, then moving onto the destination drive, which has been a huge inconvenience, because of the huge video files that I am dealing with.

I have already cleared the file and the .part in the destination drive, but failed to locate the rest of the temp file in my system drive. I have searched the internet and found no mention of such problem. So I am seeking professional help here.

Attached is a screenshot showing how much space is used by checking the system drive properties, against the properties of all files in system drive (including hidden). The number doesn't add up, and there are 52 GB of files unlocated.
