Firefox 64 bit default & shortcut conflicts

Windows 10 update: Existing FF shortcut is not default (that can not be changed) and new FF shortcut is required default but will not launch with open tabs and book marks… (tuilleadh eolais)

Windows 10 update: Existing FF shortcut is not default (that can not be changed) and new FF shortcut is required default but will not launch with open tabs and book marks as older shortcut.

Windows update mess: Totally confusing. I am on a 64 bit lap top.

Conflict: Two FF shortcuts launch the same 64 bit version of FF from two different start directories but only the old one retains my book marks or open research tabs. Launch that and I get error 'not the default browser" and that can not be changed. Launch FF from any web link or email and same 64 bit program launches with no open tabs or book marks. Can not set old (BEST) shortcut as the default it always previously was.

First: After a recent Windows 10 upgrade, when I now launch the Firefox from the icon shortcut pinned to my task bar, it now says “Firefox is not your default browser” and I am given the choice to use FF as my default browser. But no matter what I do I can not stop that default browser error AND Windows tells me the FF IS selected as the default.

The properties of the Original shortcut on my task bar short cut are”

Target: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" Start in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox"

Ths is puzzling for that appears to be correct for 32 bit and not 64 bit program. I have ALWAYS been using that shortcut for years not with no problem. I prefer to keep that because I currently have about 25 open tabs for a research project and dozens of favorites in my tool bar. That is what launched whenever I clicked a link in my email or in any web document. BUT not any more!

Second: Since the Win 10 upgrade, even if the original shortcut is open, if I click on a link in my email or any web site, FF does not launch in a new tab from with that launched shortcut and opened FF page but instead opens a new window. In that instance I do not get the message "Fire Fox is not your default browser” of in that instance it IS my default! But I am getting an entirely different FF page: no open tabs and no bookmarks.

As I sleuthed about I discover that from any emial or a web link FF is not launching from that original task bar shortcut but different a different shortcut new to my desk top which has the same properties as the FF in my list of programs . The properties of those shortcuts are:

NEW Shortcut: Target "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" Start in "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox"

It does not appear that I am running two versions of FF. No matter which shortcut I launch About FF tells me I am running FF version 85.0.2 (65 bit) so there even though it is launched from a different “Start” location.

So the new shortcut after Win 10 upgrade launches FF version 85.0.2 (65 bit) from Target "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" with no open tabs and no Book marks and appears to be the dafault

And the OLD preferred shortcut launches FF version 85.0.2 (65 bit) from Target: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" (which should have been reserve for 32 bit?) and that shortcut launch tells me FF is not my default browner however but it IS the default as launched from Target "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

This may explain why the original old shortcut tells me FF is not my default browser and I can not change it since that already is selected as the default in the new shortcut. It may also expiation why launching from the new shortcut does not me give me that error.

Maddening! What do I do? I dare not uninstall FF because there is apparently only one 64 bit version running.

If I change the NEW shortcut properties so the same as the old original shortcut properties that does not help. Widows still insists that FF Target "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" is/must the default and I can not modify that in path in programs and apps.

Windows seems to insist that FF can only be the default if lanced from "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe". A launch from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" will insostg it is not the default and I can not change that.

So how to I get FF version 85.0.2 (65 bit) to launch from Target "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" BUT with all the open tabs and book marks it launches from Target: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

I think this means Windows 10 will no longer allow FF to be the default if launched from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

As far as email or web links I can not make FF to launch from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe".

So, somehow we I must accept Target "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" as the default path. So how do I import all my open tabs and book marks into the FF that launches from Target "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

Hi all, seit Kurzem (leider weiß ich nicht genau seit wann) stelle ich fest, dass Youtube Videos (Wiedergabegeschwindigkeit Standard) unter Firefox (Windows 10) zu langsam abgespielt werden. Das ist sehr irritierend. Ich habe das Windows Media FeaturePack installiert und unter Chrome läuft auch alles normal. Ich hab mal ein Video von der Tagesschau von einem anderen Portal gestreamt und auch das scheint normal zu laufen. In Youtube habe ich das browser.sessionstore.interval angepasst. Ohne Effekt. Cache in Firefox gelöscht - ohne Effekt. Bin ratlos. Hat jemand eine Idee? Best regards. Joachim

My question: How do I disable "Download firefox update" nag?

More importantly; how do I stop your software -- running on MY computer -- from sending who knows what private information to your servers when it "checks for updates"?

But mostly, how did your once 32% market share fall to https://www.oberlo.com/statistics/browser-market-share|3%?

Maybe, because you stopped listening to your users and decided that "YOU KNOW BEST"!

The once champion of User rights now imposes itself on those few fools that continue to use it. You have to "sign up" to even ask a question. And woe betide that you want to enjoy a stable browser that doesn't force you to accept changes that break websites you rely upon, because some faceless, nameless do-gooder developer in Wisconsin decided ...

Engage me. I dare you to engage me. I won't swear at you. Nor accuse you *as an individual* of anything; but I will debunk your (the Mozilla collective) idea that "You know best".

Hello

Recently I bought Nordic VPN and since I connected to one of its servers abroad, Firefox still thinks I'm outside the UK, even if I've switched to UK servers and even if I turn it off. So now I can't watch BBC iplayer.

I looked at other simliar threads but none of the solutions I read there works. I've cleared cache, switched to offline mode and online mode again, etc. Nothing.

I'm on Windows 10, 64-bit, desktop browser. Any tips on how to solve this would be great.

I was googling fine, went to eat, and when I came back this security alert appeared when tried to google something, and it also appears if I try to enter Youtube, like if Google sites now are a security risk for Firefox?

Edge opens them, Chrome opens them, WTF?? I just went to eat, didn't update nothing, didn't add a cookie, didn't restart the computer, I didn't even close the browser, I JUST WENT TO EAT. This is for those that say "restart", "clean your cookies", "update Firefox", I've already tried the obvious, what the hell happened? Did Firefox get in a fight with Google or what?

Do developers read these topics or we're just "helping each other"? Well, thanks for any info on the matter...

I am having issues with a couple of sites I go to often. The first is https://cnrtl.fr/ and the second is https://gallica.bnf.fr Both of these sites are working in my other web browsers but Firefox continues to say they are not secure. The first is a dictionary and the second is a site with manuscripts and documents from the 19th century and earlier which are in PDF format mostly.

These sites just just stopped working after Firefox 85 update.

I can no longer sign into my Citi account using Firefox (85). Works on all other browsers. The only error message I get is:

Trouble signing on?Select "Forgot User ID or Password"

Started a few days ago. Contacted Citi, and they ran me through all the typical solutions (clearing cache, force refreshing, etc.) There final solution was to use another browser.

Checked on my laptop, which is still using Firefox (v84.0.2). I could login with no issue. Updated to v85.0 and I cannot login.

So, there is an issue with v85.0 and citi.com

Hello, I use a popular website hrca.net (Hornby Railways Collectors Association). Since about 12th February this year attempted access just times out saying the site is busy or down. I get the same problem using other browsers. Firefox flags a certificate/name/address error warning which can be bypassed but not very convenient and possibly unsafe. The owner of the website asked me to try the IP address as a test and it works perfectly. Why is Firefox suddenly flagging this problem after 6 years of using this site without any issues? The website owner says no other users have reported any problems. There are 2000+ users. I have tried clearing the cache, disabling add-ons and resetting Firefox. Using CMD tracert I have discovered the IP address called by hrca.net on my laptop is not the same as the one supplied by website owner. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I thought this should be kept open ... it has no solution at present, other than use another browser...

Im working for my government posting applies to this certain website: https://voucher.gov.gr/ui/project/37/personal

When an apply is completed i printed on pdf to save locally.

This was fine till Firefox update 85.00 ( i jumped from 83.00 to 85.00, i don't know why. but i can reproduce it even on 84.00.

) When i tried to save as pdf, the character encoding of upper part of page (i think its header) you should defently see the exact same page to found out why ( https://voucher.gov.gr/ui/project/37/personal ) is appear with squares and the characters is losted, and unavailable. ( you can see here: https://imgur.com/a/W3g0Tz6 )

Also After the updated version for PRINT DIALOG (the new one) the new dialog, is not showed up, (see image)

if you are updating from old version with old profile. 

I had to delete the old profile to appear the new dialog, and there is no setting to get the new one, from old one.

On Firefox prior to 84.00: ( on 83.00 for example) this issue is not there ( and the page has not change at all), the save to pdf was working perfectly, and the characters as shown on the image, is perfectly grabbed and saved. I could not find any other website to replicate this issue so please, invest it here..

https://voucher.gov.gr/ui/project/37/personal

thank you.
