Can I keep Firefox DevEd and Firefox isolated?

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen!

Please read my post completely before answering! Thank you!

I'm using

  • Firefox DevEd (manually installed) as my primary driver and
  • the standard Firefox (installed from the package manager) for leisure/hobby related browsing

each with its own Mozilla account and profile, on Manjaro KDE. Sadly, either Firefox sees all the profiles. They have usually different versions. If I mistakenly start one of the Foxes in the other Fox's profile, the newer version of Firefox (usually Firefox DevEd) autostarts migrating that profile. Which it renders the profile "corrupted" for its intended Firefox.

I'd like to have Firefox DevEd unable to see profiles (or anything else) intended for the standard Firefox and vice versa. Or at least unable to botch profiles. I do not want to disable migration or use no. Given that Firefox configuration location is hard-coded, I'm not having high hopes for my wish.

I'm wondering if there is a way to keep two Firefox installations completely isolated, other than running them in containers.

Thank you for your time!

Firefox Dev doesn't launch with profile imported from Nightly

I've copied the root profile folder from my old machine, created a new profile running Nightly, put the contents of old profile into just created one, and it just worked. Doing the exact same steps with Dev version doesn't work - app refuses to launch after picking imported profile as default one. Could it be because Dev has a lower app version?

Unable to auto-update firefox for few versions in a row (have to download installer every time)

I am not sure when exactly problem started but for few months I have problem with automatic update of firefox. It properly detects update and downloads it but when I click to restart browser and apply update (this should close browser and display update install bar) nothing happens - browser simply closes. When I launch it again and go into "about firefox" again I see spinning circle next to "installing update". Of course this update never installs. When I close it for 2nd time and go into "about firefox" it goes back to "update ready to install, click to restart" - and again, when I click it browser simply closes without restarting and installing update. I tried removing my profile, using safe mode, disabling antivirus. Issue seems to be related to firefox itself. I also tried removing mozilla maintenance service but it did not help. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this? For now only way for me to update firefox is manually download full installer from website and then it installs latest version without any problems - until next month comes and I have to update it again.

duplicate of /questions/1443841 thread.

I cannot get firefox to update. It is set up for automatic updates but they don't happen. Even if I try manual installation of updates it says the update fails. I ran it in troubleshooting mode and the problem still exists. I restarted my computer and the problem still exists. I am using a mac running on Monterey. How can I get it to auto update again? (and even though it says failed to check for or install updates, it looks like I do have the latest version of firefox)

How do I download language data for translating on a machine that is not connected to the internet?

I already followed the instructions here to download an offline firefox installer: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

and I downloaded the language packs I want here: https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/124.0/win64/xpi/

and I followed the instructions here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/deploying-firefox-language-packs

But translation still doesn't work. I even manually installed the "*.xpi" packs into the browser. I can see in Firefox's settings that it thinks the packs are installed, and it offers to translate pages it detects are in a different language, but translation fails. I noticed that the language packs are smaller than I would have expected - smaller than 1MB. Is there a way to download the language data that is needed for offline translations?

Thank you!
