I upgraded to v 47.0.2. Verified that I was now on the correct version. Later, It says that there is an update available, and it is v 47.0.2. I check and I'm on v 45.0.1.

This has happened a few times now. At first I thought, I thought I did that, must have been confused. Then, must have been on the other machine.

Now, I'm very sure that I was on v 47.0.2 yesterday. Today It says I'm on v 45.0.1 again. This time it was immediately after FF crashed. I can't verify that was true the other times.

I want to return to version 28. Version 29's interface is hideous. I installed the add-on which supposedly makes it look like version 28, but it doesn't.

I have downloaded version 28. All I need to know is: Do I uninstall version 29 before installing version 28, or can I install version 28 over version 29 without uninstalling it first? I want to keep all my bookmarks.

I have already turned off automatic updates.

For the last few days my Firefox does not display the downloads window. I have tried to follow the suggestion set out in Firefox Help ie Tools --> Options --> General

But my General Tab doesn't show under Downloads the option to check the box "Show the Downloads window when downloading a file". Under Downloads, the only option shows "save files to Downloads" and "Always ask me where to save files".

Any suggestions on how I can get to --> Downloads the option to check the box "Show the Downloads window when downloading a file".

Thank you in anticipation

1. the current default one

2. and the old profile that has been transferred into the new profile

old profile is firefox dev edition if that matters

I've installed flash player multiple times, to no avail. I keep getting the message, I need to install flash player, even though I installed it, and adobe said it was installed successively. What in the world gives??? Can you help? Thank you.

After updating to 61.0 (64 bit) my Home Content options disappeared, leaving a blank page when opening new tabs. From research, I see there should be a Firefox Home Content section in about:preferences#home . Mine has no Firefox Home Content options listed, just options for New Windows and Tabs (see screenshot). I have tried disabling all addons and closing/reopening Firefox but it made no difference.

How do I get my Home Content options back?

I would like to be able to have web search in the home page (not the address bar) and my top sites pinnable there, like it was before the 61.0 update, instead of the blank home page I am now seeing when opening new tabs.

I never trust, download or install anything related to Russia or China, I don't want those spies get control of my PC. After many years of using FF, I just found something that shocked me: Baidu Search Update Extension What's this installed with FF installation? Note: I never run Firefox.setup.exe but just extract it using winrar, from "core\browser" remove "features" folder completely then install it. Where can I remove it from install source? Anything related to those Chinese search engines?

I have Windows 10, version 1903. I recently backed up my Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles to an external drive before replacing the hard drive in my laptop.

After replacing my hard drive with a new one, I restored an earlier image file of my computer in order to put back all my data onto the new drive.

Then I did a Fresh Start, effectively doing a new install of Windows 10 (v.1903).

(As far as I can tell, my old Firefox data was deleted during the Fresh Start reinstall.)

I now did a new install of Firefox onto my computer. After I opened it I synced. Because my favicons were not restored (a generic globe icon shows in their place instead), I'd like to load in my old saved profile and make that my default profile.

The problem: So I tried copying and pasting the saved profile ("bxfz7tby.default" ) back into the new Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles (e.g, into "C:\Users\,username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\", but I can't get Firefox to access them. Instead, it only accesses the new profile it created.

I did an uninstall and tried it again, but all I ended up doing is creating another new profile. Now when I go to About:Profiles (see image), the default-release and default profiles listed don't seem to exist anymore (they aren't loadable, and they can't be found using the filepath noted there), and the actual backup profiles that I copied from my portable drive into Mozilla and that I actually see in File Explorer, doesn't show up as a profile choice.

How can I restore my old backed up profile? And if I do restore it successfully, will that also restore my missing favicons?

I have had this issue since version 43. I am now running version 46.01 on a Mac OS Yosemite and when I reinstall version 46.01 after a few days I get a message that a a newer version already exists. Firefox reports 46.01 and at the time of this comment June-3-2016 there is no newer version. If I reinstall say the next day I don't get the newer version message.

What is changing in Firefox that makes reinstalling the same version believe it is installing over a newer version?

Just got a new computer, really excited, but heard that firefox changed and I don't like the firefoxes that I see in recent computers.

I'm still using an old windows xp computer, with firefox 28 I believe.

My new computer is a windows 8.1, and it has all the new bells and whistles. My current version of firefox on XP looks like this:

http://i.imgur.com/nnRjFFk.png

Basic, very simple, just the way I like it. I just want my add-ons and my bookmarks, with everything placed in exactly the same way as it is in that picture (a friend of mine's firefox actually has the home/refresh/stop buttons on the right, what the heck?)

Want to know what's the step by step actions I need to undertake to transfer my firefox as soon as possible and start using my new computer. Would appreciate the help thank you.
