I have noticed for the past 3 or 4 updates Firefox refuses to update via Help |About. It tells me there is an update I click on the button on the about page to restart the browser yet the update never installs. The only way to update Firefox is to download the installer from Firefox website.

I have cleared cache and cookies and that has done nothing to solve this issue

I sometimes receive notification that Fx can't update automatically and I need to download the update. Twice now, the update has deleted my profile on drive D, and replacing it with a new one on the default C: drive. Settings, options, addons all GONE! I finally had to restore my entire system from a backup. What's going on and how can I prevent it happening again?

On Win 10 / Firefox 91.0 I keep getting a popup saying I need to update FF with options to download or dismiss. When I go to "about FF" I am told I am current. This occurs about once a day no matter which option I choose. I have restarted FF several times for other reasons but the popup still occurs frequently.

The feedback page is useless and I don't see any way to contact Mozilla so this will probably go unviewed and be more of a rant but Firefox absolutely needs a much better profile management and back system. Particularly there should be a mandatory step to backup a current profile before updating. Today I updated Firefox not by choice, for some reason my PC decided that a single click was a double click. So the latest version created a brand new profile I assume because I already had Firefox open. I am beyond rage right now because I just spent the last half hour trying to find my correct profile in my user data because for some insane reason Firefox decided to create two new profiles.

I manually backed up my profile data but it's incredibly stupid that A) the profile naming is gibberish and B) I had to do that in the first place.8
