1. I had firefox in a 64bit win7 proff with relatively high specs desktop forever. Last week it started showing update notification every time i restart firefox and I choose to "remind me later" or something like that (I made the settings so that it won't auto install).

2. During that week i did restart firefox and the computer and everything was normal untill yesterday when I did something normal but I rarely do, that is i turned of the computer for more than a minute and then turned it back on. Then firefox started having trouble loading certain webpages. Things like youtube, google maps, google search, bing home page, were flawless, while things like some businesses (i remember craigslist and goodwill) and some famous podcast webpages and my wifi controlled devices struggle (take too long, then message that they were taking too long, but never show up)

3. I first "refreshed" my firefox, then reinstalled it, then when it wasn't fixed deleted the whole thing and tried installing a fresh downloaded version (I think it was 83). The downloaded installer tells me that i already had firefox and if i wish to reinstall it and after that it takes a long time to throw a message at me that starts with ("hmmmm" for "some" reason unknown reason, the installation failed to work) or very similar wording.

4. The only browser left in the computer is the microsoft one that comes with the computer and it does open the modzilla website but refuses to download the installed (obviously) so i have to download it from a windows tablet and transfer it to this computer.

any advice/insight is very much welcome

I just installed the esr version of Firefox. I did not think that I would lose all my bookmarks, add-on, etc. Is there a way to revert back to the standard version with all my old data? Or in looking at the profiles I see a default profile, a default-esr profile, and a default-release profile. This latter profile seems to have my old data when I open the folders and look around. However, when I try to open that profile in new window it says something about opening an old version and losing data and creating a new profile. When I do that, I still get a fresh browser with none of my data.

Dzień dobry, bardo proszę o udzielenie informacji czy znany jest Państwu problem eksportu sesji treningowej do pliku .tcx? Podczas eksportu sesji treningowej za pomocą przeglądarki Firefox v. 84.0.2 pliki .tcx automatycznie pobierają się do pliku .xml. W przypadku pobierania plików .tcx za pomocą przeglądarki Chrome v. 87.0.4280.141 problem nie występuje, również w przypadku pliku zipowanego pobierane dane są z rozszerzeniem .tcx w dwóch przeglądarkach.

AVG migrates my mozilla thunderbird from version 60.5.3 to 78.4.3 and I do not know how to avoid that. Version 60.5.3 is not compatible to 78.4.3 and I would have to start my thunderbird from new and would loose all my data (adresses, emails etc.). So I install version 60.5.3 from my downloads and all works fine again till AVG does it again. So either how can I tell AVG to leave my thunderbird in peace or how kann I migrate my data from 60.5.3 to 78.4.3 wich would of course be the better solution.

Is this a Firefox or Win 10 issue? I am administrator and did not disable this feature. Dashboard no longer has options for downloads. Flags, "your browser is being managed by your organisation". When did this happen? Again is this a Firefox or Win 10 issue?

Thanks

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?

Hi,

              I have problem with mi web browser (Mozilla). I start PC and browser before 10 minutes and i figured that deleted all my history, bookmarks, all remembered logins (names, passwords), and just everything. It looks like I have installed a brand new web browser. I think it will be some new update or something like that.

Thank you for your help.
