It is a folder in program files (x86)\common files\

When I mouse hover over any of the EXEs it says it is a Firefox program. Google tells me nothing.

The problem is, it (the update.exe) keeps causing games to minimize whilst I am playing. I know this, because I installed Windows Focus Logger. I ended up deleting it. So far I have had no issues with Firefox functionality.

What is it for ? And why is Update trying to phone home ? And why is it ignoring all Windows 10's settings to not grab focus ?

I have not been able to stop or limit multiple processes in Firefox usign the recommended actions. These include: browser.tabs.remote.autostart set to false Content Process Limit set to 1

These solutions have failed in Firefox 68.9.0esr (32-bit), Firefox 77.0.1 run under Windows 7 Professional 32bit, and now Firefox 78.0.1 (32-bit) running under Windows 7 Professional.

Why is there no updated solution? Why is Firefox unresponsive?

I recently switched from chrome to firefox. Normally I receive notifications of texts/imessages and calls in the top right corner of my screen even when I am watching videos in full screen; however, after switching to firefox I have noticed that sometimes I do not receive the notifications if I am in full screen video mode. This is causing me to miss some important messages. Is there a way to ensure that notifications such as imessages display even while watching videos in full screen?

I do not get the speed I should which is 150Mbs since mid April this year I was gettin the speed before Then i changed to chrome and when I test the speed is 185 Mbs everytime. Right now I have reinstalled the fire fox and tested with both Ookla and fast.com both are giving a reading of 37.6Mbs on the fire fox and 184 on the Chrome. I do like fire fox but if the speed is not there then i do not want to use it. I am not good at this computer stuff so if there are any instruction please use simple terms, also I am too old to learn . thanks stay safe

Did something change in Firefox today? I tried to let Firefox save a password and user name for Ask LibreOffice and when I tried to log in the password failed and I had to reset it.This happened again just now. (LibreOffice again). Firefox used to mess up in this way but that was ages ago. Everything has worked beautifully until today. Thank you!
