When I download something, how to I save it directly to my external hard drive instead of having it saved to my computer first and then to my external hard drive? My computer has little space left and my hard drive has 463 GB left. That's why I want to save all of my files to my external hard drive instead of my computer.

I keep getting this unable to update box. Says I don't have system permissions on my own computer. I tried downloading the latest update manually, I have file in my downloads folder, firefox-51.0.1.tar.bz2, but I don't know what to do with it. I click on it and it just shows me the files and folders inside.

Please explain in detail what to do to cause this "Unable to Update" dialog box go away.

Yes, I looked at the support pages for updating for Linux. Too complicated. It doesn't tell me exactly step by step what to do.

Please help me by telling me step by step what to do. E.g. click on terminal window, type xxxx, press enter ...

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Joe

I've tried several search engines and they have at the top a multitude of options: WEB, IMAGES, VIDEO,PLACES; therefore I assume that those choices are coming from FireFox, the only common denominator in the equation:

HOW DO I GET RID OF ALL EXCEPT `WEB'?

thank you,

I recently had to completely remove and reinstall Firefox to my PC. I had problems with the browser constantly freezing.

However when I accessed the synced tabs (after reinstalling) I realised, I had two lots of synced tabs coming from the same PC. One lot is from what was on my PC, before I removed Firefox and the other is the current tabs (on the same PC after reinstalling Firefox).

When I went to https://accounts.firefox.com/settings I saw that I had duplicate devices for my PC. I deleted all of them and then had to sign in to Firefox using my PC. I renamed my PC so as not to cause confusion with the old synced tabs. Problem is my synced tabs from before, are still showing even though I removed the device from Firefox Accounts.

I have tried syncing all my devices again but the old synced tabs won't budge even though I deleted that device. I even went to the Synced Tab Sidebar to tap on "Synchronise Now" for the "deleted" device but that also did not help.

Is there a way to remove it? Could it be something to do with my Firefox profiles?

Any help would be appreciated.

Running Firefox browser v.50.1.0 on Windows 7. In the last week or two, using the mouse to open a tab or web page often results in one or more multiples opening as well. This issue seems to be limited to Firefox, as I have no problems with Chrome on the same machine. Anyone else having this issue?

I'm running 64-bit Windows 10 (Ver. 1607, build 14393-693) on a Toshiba Portege R835 (8-GB RAM). I've had no previous problems with any Firefox updates and have made no hardware or software changes (adding, deleting, etc.) - outside of whatever automatic updates Microsoft has forced onto my system.

Beginning a week ago (+/-), the familiar "Update Firefox" dialog box has appeared four times. Except for the first occurrence (during which I was involved in a project), I selected 'Update' - each of the next three successive appearances of the same dialog box (all three of which were prompting the Ver. 51.0.1 upgrade). On each of those three occasions, I selected "Update, after which the progress bar completed its left-to-right fill normally and the usual "Restart Firefox" prompt appeared (with no error message or any other indication suggesting an unsuccessful update). Selecting "Restart," did eliminate the 'restart' prompt (ergo shutting down Firefox?), but Firefox did not restart as usual - there was, again, no error message or other indication of an unsuccessful update. Attempting a manual start at that point still did not open an active Firefox window, however, when Task Manager was opened, it showed two 'running' instances of Firefox within the list of active processes. After ending both active processes via Task Manager and starting Firefox manually (again), an active Firefox window did appear. Sometime later, however, the same 'Update Firefox' dialog box appeared (again prompting upgrading - to Ver. 51.0.1).

This has now occurred on three separate occasions - each one yielding the described results. The same 'Update Firefox' dialog box (to Ver 51.0.1 yet again) appeared once again (the fifth time thus far) a short time ago (~5:00p.m. est; 30 January 2017). I have searched your Web site - as well as the Web - for any reports of the same/similar problems, with neither source proving helpful - ergo I am submitting this question. Should you need/want additional information, please advise. Thanks.

Whenever I open Firefox, there are two firefox.exe running the background whenever I open the browser. Whenever I try to close the second one, it crashes all of the tabs that are on the browser, and whenever I reload the tabs, it pops up again.

I've scanned my computer multiple times with multiple anti-viruses, but there was no viruses to be found. I've also disabled the plugins that I thought were the issue, and refreshed Firefox, but it was still there. I restarted my computer, no luck in doing that. Uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox didn't even do the trick either.

The double processes sky-rockets my RAM and CPU, and it's starting to get annoying. Please help! I appreciate any cooperation!

It started with Facebook. When I go to facebook.com I get a screen with a jumble of characters. Now it is happening with Amazon.com. All I can find from google searches is a solution if I use Kaspersky, but I do not. I use Avast. This isn't happening on my Chrome browser - it is specific to Firefox. I've tried using Avast and Malwarebytes to remove any viruses and malware, but the problem persists. What could be happening?

This same page, with nothing but the FF logo on an orange background 'pops up' frequently - usually when I'm changing pages. I guess the logo is the link to the "update" it promises. I haven't tried it, don't wanna bet my anti-V can handle a clever bug. Thanks for any light you can shed on it! (chas)

For some reason today, when I want to upload a photo to facebook, ancestry or wherever and I am using firefox as my engine, the upload photo file pane opens huge, covering my entire screen. There is no minimize option and if I hover over the edges it won't let me pull it in smaller either. I do not have this problem if I use explorer engine, the photo upload pane opens the correct size so that I can still see the site I am logged on to and working on. I have no idea why this happened just today or why. I have already done a restart of my computer and also cleared my history cache. I am attaching one showing too big screen that opens when I want to upload a photo

I had to reset my computer to factory settings. Prior to this when I clicked on the email address box on the Google sign in page, I was offered my google email address and my hotmail address to select. Then I just entered my password. After the reset, it no longer does this forcing me to type the email address each time. How do I get back to having the email addresses offered when clicking on the email address box? Thanks.
