Hi, I have a Librem Mini running PureOS based on Linux Debian. I downloaded the binary package of Firefox from the Firefox download page, but may not have installed it properly. I can only run the browser by going to Files, Home, double click the Firefox folder and double clicking the file Firefox. Works perfect, but would like to have the shortcut in my Applications window like all of my other apps. Can anyone help? Thanks, Chris

I am attempting to automate firefox updates and I am attempting to follow the guide listed below: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Software_Update:Manually_Installing_a_MAR_file When I follow those steps the update.status file simply says "failed: 75". Does anybody know the meaning of this error code? Is there a resource out there that I could find which lists the meanings of other error codes? Or am I going about this the wrong way entirely, and there is some better solution for automating firefox updates? Any help is appreciated.

After loading the lastest Firefox software I get this message when selecting AT&T Yahoo Mail.

Specifically: https://mail.yahoo.com/ returns the following message... "The latest version of AT&T Yahoo Mail is not supported on your browser. Please use a supported browser below or use basic Mail."

It then lists: the Firefox download as an option (I have selected download many times, the download completes and still get this message). I have tried restarting my computer and same loop.

in an CMD it's also not working.

Has anyone an idea of ​​the reasons why?

Using Firefox browser for iMac. Recently (10/10/2021) attempted to download .aax files from Audible.com. Files were unexpectedly converted to .mp4 files, making files unusable by iBooks. Conferred with Audible Tech support. Audible Tech confirmed that .aax files are the proper format and that they did not/do not make any format conversions on their end. Audible Tech then suggested trying download with Safari. Download (of .aax files with Safari) was successful and maintained proper (.aax) format. Audible Tech said that he had not encountered this issue before and that it seemed to him that the Firefox browser may be responsible for the unexpected conversion. In the past I have used Firefox many times to successfully download .aax files from Audible.com, most recent prior to this problem was on (9/11/2021). I am notifying you simply to advise that you may have a programing glitch within the download programing portion of the latest version of Firefox (ver. 93.0 - 64 bit) for iMac(s).

I used to run Firefox 88.0.1 (64 bit) on a Windows 7 PC. With lots of help from this forum I wrote a userchrome.css file to make several changes to the appearance.

On a new Windows 10 machine I installed the same version of Firefox (since I don't care for the latest one). I added my old profle to the new installation and selected it as the default.

Unfortunately, when I opened the program I was prompted to create a new profile; there didn't seem to be any way around this. So I let it happen and tried simply copying my old chrome folder into it - I thought at least I could make the visual changes even if I couldn't import my bookmarks and so on.

But this didn't work either: when I run the program, none of the expected changes are there.

Presumably I've done something wrong, but what, exactly? I'd be grateful for any thoughts. Ideally, I'd like to use the whole of the old Win7 profile but if that's not possible at least changing the appearance would be pleasant.

Many thanks.

I purchase audiobooks on Audible.com using my Mac (OS Catalina). When I download a purchase Firefox sends it as an MP4 file which is incompatible with the apps to play the audiobook. Safari and other browsers do no do this - the files come as an .aax file. Even after I have an .aax file I cannot play it using Firefox because Audible.com does not recognize my registered computer. I get an error message: Document "LicenseForCustomerToken" couldn't be opened. Incompatable with QuickTime Player. FYI: QuickTime Player is a video (MP4) player app on my computer. So, once again, Firefox makes the .aax file appear like an MP4 file to Audible. It's doing some kind of unrequested and unwanted conversion of .aax files to MP4.

I hope you can fix this in your next update. i've worked with Audible to solve this issue, but they cannot help and are telling me it is a "known issue" with Firefox and recommend I use a different browser.

When dowloading an AAX type file from Audible, Firefox changes it to MP4 (downloads as AAX with other browsers).

Note, changing the file type after the download fixes the problem. But, is there a way to prevent it from happening in the first place? Also, why changing file type in the first place?

Today using Firefox 93.0 on my Windows 10 home computer I opened the browser to my Audible library on Audible.com and selected a book to download. The browser download window opened with the book file name but the extension wasn't .AAX but had been changed to .MP4. This did not happen when I used Microsoft Edge nor did this happen on my Windows 10 laptop which was still running Firefox 92.0. Once Firefox upgraded to 93.0 on my laptop I now get the same problem as I get on my home computer.

Audible technical support looked into the problem and found that this change wasn't caused by their servers.

I have discovered that if I change the file extension from MP4 to AAX I can load the audible book into iTunes and sync it over to my iPhone which is able to play the file as an audible book. This indicates to me that the actual AAX file was not converted to MP4. For some reason only the file extension was changed.

I wasn't able to find any setting in the Firefox browser that corrected this problem.

Firefox install fails because it cannot find VC Runtime140_1.dll I downloaded the dll but Firefox can't find it. Where should I put this .dll? The bulk of the program installs but it can't search on line.

This is a new Win 10 machine. I've updated and ran DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth then uninstalled Firefox, put the VCRuntime file in the Win Sys 32 drivers folder, restarted and reloaded Firefox. Still no love.

I'm at the end of the road...what next?
