Installed latest Firefox update. When desktop shortcut icon is selected get this message "Windows can not find 'C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe'. Make sure you typed in the name correctly, and try again.' The program extension is there and when I click on that location get same message. I think my laptop has been hacked and I need to wipe the hard drive and reinstall windows. I have other desktop shortcut icons linking to apps that get same message, yet those applications are installed and worked in the past. Also when I opened Chrome it came up in Chinese language. The VPN app was not working yet it was yesterday. I have Avast virus protection, yet the scan showed no virus present. Do I have to wipe drive and reinstall Windows?

when i tried to open firefox today, it said that it could not find c:/program files/mozilla firefox/firefox.exe. when i go to the file location it is there, but is listed as a .sig file? is that right? i have tried registry editor, uninstalling and reinstalling, etc. i have not done windows update 1909 because i did it before and things went all wonky so i went back to 1809. i don't know if that could have anything to do with it? is there a difference between just downloading firefox and i keep seeing "full version"...i am very confused. and fairly tech savvy. help, please. thank you.

Ever since a random point in the middle of the afternoon today, Windows 10 has become completely incapable of running firefox.exe. I have done a complete reinstall multiple times, wiping any and all traces of Mozilla from my system before running the installer again. I have run antivirus scans, and attempted to start Firefox with my antivirus (Avast!) completely disabled. I even tried starting firefox.exe from the command line, using tab completion to ensure that the file existed. No matter what I do, I get an error message from Windows claiming that it can't find firefox.exe, even when this is the result of double-clicking that exact file. This does not happen for any other software, including the portable version of Firefox (which is useless, since nothing is saved and I need my addons). I'm beginning to think that this is the result of either an absurd mistake or deliberate action from Microsoft, as there has been more than one Windows update within the day, and I have noticed other weird issues like my desktop background occasionally just being removed from existence for no reason.

Hi,

i have many crashes of firefox tabs and the whole browser lately. The same happen in my chrome browser. The crash happens while watching a video or while surfing the internet. All of the time i do nothing active on a website or a video an the tab or browser crashes. I checked my system for new drivers and installed it. Perhaps it is something with my anti virus programm (avast)?

This are the last crash-ids i sended:

After updating from 58.0.1 to 58.0.2 (both 64 bit) this morning, pages are painfully slow to load, as are searches. If I can find a copy of 58.0.1, can I safely removed 58.0.2 and then install 58.0.1. Or does anyone have a fix for this slowness? By slow I mean 10 or more seconds for pages to load that were almost instantaneous before.

Hello- ever since computer was updated to Firefox 60.2.0 esr, I have not been able to find but about 5-total add-ons and extensions. I had about 15- or so before updating Firefox. Where would I find them?

 I just received a message from my Avast Free Anti-Virus that said I should remove a bad reputation add-on I never heard of & I surely could not find it using the 4- horizontal bars at the top right of the Browser.  

Thanks!

Trying to get my mom's Mac back online. The Safari browser on her OSX 10.7 machine would not work with Google Mail last year after they made some upgrades. We installed Firefox and she could get her mail. It has been offline for several months due to unrelated issues. Today it accessed Gmail. I then downloaded Avast free edition for Mac. After that Firefox gives an invalid certificate error on every page - Google.com, even Mozilla.com. I have closed Avast but the problem seems to be in Mozilla. I thought it might need updating so I attempted to download the update. Still giving this error. I disabled the Avast add-on to Firefox. Still does it. The current version is 43.0.3 now, after restarting it. It was updated from ver 39.0.

At wit's end. Is this thing just too old?

Yesterday I upgraded to the newest version of Firefox (66.0, 64-bit). I use Avast Antivirus for virus protection, and I noticed after I upgraded to the new version of Firefox and went to go online, the Avast Online Security Browser Extension showed that the automatic blocking of trackers was disabled, so I clicked More Settings and re-checked the things that were previously unchecked (the do not track boxes), afterwhich I clicked Save, and everything was A-OK.

After I was finished, I closed the page I was on.

When I went back in awhile later, the same thing occurred, and I had to do the same thing all over again.

I'm not sure what to do so I don't have to keep repeating the same process over & over again. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I'm unsure whether this is Firefox-related or Avast-related. I did post over at Avast's forums, too.

Thanks in advance.

I am running Firefox 66.0.2 (64-bit) on a Windows 10 machine, up to date at 1 April 2019. (No this is not an April Fool's joke!)

Some time ago, Firefox (and Thunderbird) stopped saving logins and passwords and as I had better things to do, I just put up with it. Now I would like to sort the problem out, but can find nothing specific on this problem. The closest advice is at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/password-manager-remember-delete-change-and-import#w_make-firefox-remember-usernames-and-passwords

On this page the advice is all about clicking an a key icon. Problem is: the latest version of Firefox has no key icon.

When I check under Options-> Privacy & Security->Logins & Passwords the box to tick for "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" is faded out and does not work.

I have tried to attach screen shots of the instructions described, but they will not load.

I have looked all over Firefox Help but all the answers direct you back to the about instruction about clicking the key icon which is simply not present on my screen.

Other thoughts:-

Could Avast Free Antivirus have given me a 'free trial' that has upset the system?

Could Duckduckgo be in conflict with Firefox about privacy, i.e. password management?

Any suggestions?

This is a mixed site that you do not "sign-in" to. I can't find a way to make sure it will load everything.

I have uninstalled Firefox 40, deleted the profiles folder, reinstalled Firefox, restored Firefox 40 and profiles from a backup and I am still getting this message. I even downgraded to a previous version and restored the profiles for that version and still this nasty error crops up on anything I try to do. I cannot find any info on where other files files are stored that I am not restoring or changing that are still lingering. I have never seen anything like this.This is after spending 3 weeks completely updating and changing Firefox to suit my needs and dumping Chrome,this is what I get. It appears I will have to move back to chrome as I need a browser that works. I have tried everything I can find regarding this to no avail. I am really upset over this especially after all the time spent moving from Chrome to Firefox. I really need an answer or I will have to delete Firefox and move back to Chrome as much as I hate to do that. It still works!! Anyone have an answer for this? Is their no one at Mozilla to help with this? Help!
