I have been running Firefox for a number of years but uninstalled the programme last week as there seemed to be some problems with the system. I then tried to down load the current version. Every time I press the green download tab on the Firefox page a small pop up box at the bottom of the page asks if I want to save the file and when I say yes it then tries to download but then advises that the file can't be downloaded. This has happened about twelve times over the last three days. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium and am having to use Internet Explorer to access the Fire Fox Web Page

I've had a lot of crashes, some just firefox, some the whole computer. In process of migrating to new machine so wasn't overly concerned. But after a restart today, I found I could not get firefox to open at all. After finding the system searching for firefox.com, I checked program files\mozilla firefox and firefox.exe is not there. A search showed it not to be anywhere. Not ready to stop using this machine just yet. Any way to get firefox.exe reloaded without losing all my related stuff??

I was having trouble with AOL and clicked the AOL specific update for Firefox. Now I have the AOL version of Firefox. I do not want this version of Firefox but I don't know how to restore the previous version without losing all of my stored data, i.e. bookmarks. My biggest problem with this version is that every time I open a new tab the AOL homepage appears. I have changed my default homepage back to google but AOL still opens with every new tab. Any help is greatly appreciated.

How many times do I have to download and install Firefox 34.0 Beta 7? Software update asks me to do this (and I do) at least once a day. Yes, I have restarted.

Using MacBook Pro, 15", early 2008, 2.4G Intel core 2 duo, 4G ram. Software update asks to update Firefox 34.0 beta7 every day. If I update, it just asks me to do it again. It has done this through the last several Beta updates. It's a bit disconcerting, since the updates are supposedly for security and stability. Let me put the question in another way: how many times do I have to ignore the update request before it quits asking? This is all causing me to regret making Firefox my default browser, especially since Safari has been improved so much.

I initially installed FireFox because supposedly it allows me to run Sky Go which sadly Chrome no longer does. When I did so, I thought it would be wise to allow it to import my bookmarks etc. However, since I was not able to run Sky Go, they suggested that I unistall FireFox and reinstall it without any imports, this I have now tried twice without success to do; hence this question. All help gratefully received and greatly appreciated.

We'll soon be using a core program in are organization that works better on Firefox than in IE. However, We are at a point where Java 7u67 is the supported version of Java. Having installed Mozilla Firefox v.33.1.1 I find that it is rejecting Java 7u67 for security reasons. Is there a way to allow the use of 7.67 with our core application?

These problems started when upgraded to version 36. Each time there were newer upgrades while still in version 36, for example; when I check for a newer version in Help/About/check for updates, there have been 4 sub-upgrades 36.0.1, 36.0.2, 36.0.3, 36.0.4.

When I was asked to restart after it downloaded the upgrades, it closes my browser and then about 30 seconds later, the crash reporter comes up. This never happened before and is getting to be a concern at this point.

Today I upgraded my Firefox to the new version.... of course I lost all the "Theme", display style etc. etc. ... most of all I even lost the bookmarks. Now that is very inconvenient and time consuming to re do . Maybe some bookmarks needed some input which I may not have available now...

So is it possible to get those back....

Thanks Anil

After every update I have to re setup my setting/homepage/how it works & Visual shopper popups I can not remove = me done with Firefox. Most time my add ons do not work with new version. All this + the large memory allocation Firefox needs does not make it worth my time. I was going to use Firefox on my phone & laptop OS, not now!

Hello Firefox team,

I'ts not a big thing, but more unhandy, Ff use to be work easy for me but this is quit odd..

Please advice, many Thanks..

I clicked on "add to firefox." Then a box in the left top corner of my laptop comes up and asks me to allow mozilla to get this going. I click allow. Then another box comes up asking if I still want to install LeechBlock and I do so I click install. Then another box that says Firefox needs to restart and LeechBlock will start downloading after Firefox has been restarted with the option of "restart now" which I choose. It restarts and then ... nothing. What am I doing wrong?
