Firefox will not update, but continuaaly load unstoppable popups suggesting I download and install a new copy. This is "Firefox for Acer". One other question about this was answered "I assume that you can ask this at the Acer support forum as they should know this best." wgich means, I suppose, that the responder doesn't knowm but likes answering questions.

Does anyone know? Is this why Firefox fails to update? Will re-installing eliminate the problem? Is there any way to stop the popups?

I download Endnote .ris reference files every day, and have done for decades. Endnote supplies a parsing tool that imports the data into the database. But it has just stopped working. In the import dialog box, the message that comes up on downloading a ris file is: "what should Firefox do with this file?

  Open with Notebook (default)"

Well down the dropdown option list I can choose to open with Endnote, so I clicked on "Do this automatically for files .." then chose the Endnote option. Which works, but it doesn't stick. If I go to the Options page>Applications>ris, nothing comes up. If I choose >Endnote, the suggested option is to open every Text file with Endnote - not a good idea.

Has something gone wrong with Firefox or with Endnote settings? Thank you

I've been a long time Firefox user since around 2005 and have always enjoyed Firefox until now. This issue has been ongoing for over a year though. I never would have thought that a simple task as entering a web address in the address bar and hitting enter would become so difficult, though for a while now this seems to be the case and to the point to where I'm considering not bothering with the Firefox browser anymore. I do enjoy where Firefox is now in current development and the way it looks as well the great performance. However, when basic functionality such as typing in a web address and hitting enter becomes difficult all the aforementioned positives become less and less relevant. It seemed to all start when development came to redesign the appearance of the UI, not sure what version. Basically, what I come to experience now roughly 90 percent of the time I type a web address in the address bar and hit enter is the browser does nothing. Sometimes it takes 5 to 6 tries with having to put the mouse courser back into the address bar and hitting enter multiple times before the browser decides it want's to go the website. Same issue occurs when opening a bookmark in another tab, switch to the tab and the site isn't loaded, have to hit enter multiple times before the web address will begin to load. Seems also that any setting regarding tabs background loading isn't present anymore in the settings either. Same issue will occur when selecting a favorite that comes up while typing in the address bar.

Recently I had reinstalled my entire operating system and was hopeful that this issue would be resolved by doing so with a fresh install of Firefox too, though the issue is still present.

I have no add-ons or themes that modify the address bar, nor any search add-ons. In fact, this issue occurs with no add-ons installed at all. The only thing I can think currently is that it is an issue and or bug of some kind within the search and or address bar settings current design.

My settings here are attached as images.

This happens far too often, in the course of 9 months or more frequently. What is going on Firefox? v88.0.1 Windows 10

Constant script errors that freeze whatever program I am in, regardless of the option I choose - the popup no longer gives me a WAIT or STOP IT. The box comes up that says DON'T ask me about this again.

I do not want to copy passwords, more than anything, should I create a new profile. I do not want to deal with replacing or losing the file. When I attempted to load two other profiles over the last two days, both times FF crashed. I gave up.

I am NOW in Safe Mode and without errors, and it's hard to know which app is causing the problem.

Is there a new addon that will back up Firefox these days?

Suggestions? Seriously, FF seems to be a whole lot more trouble these days than she is worth.

Thank you.

I am trying to update the primary email associated with my Firefox account. My primary email is listed as <primary@domain.name>, for example. My secondary email is not assigned. When I try to add <preferred.email@domain.name> to my secondary email, I get the message: "Secondary email must be different than your account email"

I do not see this "account email" listed anywhere. Where do I find it, and how can I change it?

Many thanks, bd89

I have noticed that recently a lot of well-known and trusted sites(eg- youtube) are showing connection not secure (Parts of page are not secure such as images and any information that you share may be leaked -passwords etc) . Sometimes when I reload the site, it again shows connection secure.

Is this a glitch or something to be worried about and is there a solution?
