My Firefox is v102, 64-bit, on W10 Enterprise. ESR channel. It keeps telling me I need to update.

Under HELP, it fails to download whatever it is trying to update. Even though I got v102, I tried the online installer (mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new). Thinking about it now, I did not try an offline installer.

I been searching online and tried this policies.json file (github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/master/README.md#backgroundappupdate) with these entries:

{

 "policies": {
   "AppAutoUpdate": false
 }

} {

 "policies": {
   "BackgroundAppUpdate": false
 }

}

But still not help.

Is there anything else I can try? There seems to be no simple option to click to not check for updates temporarily.

Thank you.

Hi there,

I have a problem. I had two windows with aprox 30 really important tabs each open at all times. Somehow firefox closed those two windows when I opened a third window (I don't know why and it doesn't matter tbh) and I didn't notice. I opened other temp windows and because of that the previous two with the important tabs were deleted from the chronic.

Is there any way at all to restore those two?

In my sessionstore-backups directory there are six files. previous.jsonlz4, recovery.baklz4 and recovery.jsonlz4. The other two are upgrade.jsonlz4 with a date at the end. The last one is from 20220630. Could this possibly be some older backup from my chronic with my old two windows? If so, is there a way to restore those? Just renaming them didn't seem to work...

I'd be glad for any help anybody could give me. :)

Hello,

I have many and long lists of bookmarks saved in the "Bookmarks Toolbar". The problem is that when I hover my mouse within the lists and sublists, the new rectangular form of a certain list (within another list) places over the old one in a way that I cannot distinguish the beginning/end of each one.

Can that be fixed or is there another theme that will help me see clearly the boundaries of each bookmark list/sublist?

Thank you!

Unable to use PayPal to buy "Unlimited Relay"

I have been trying for over 2 hours off and on over the past several days to pay for your unlimited relay service to no avail, using my paypal account. I login to my PP account popup window and am taken to the next window where I can - theoretically - choose which means of payment I want to use. Most often I don't have the time to check the banner for Agree and Pay as the app immediately takes me to the page where it tries to connect to register the payment. Then I get the message to the effect of the app is too busy and 'Try again later', so I hit the 'try again' button and am taken back to the login page. Usually, at this point I login, am taken to the Agree and Pay screen but which no longer displays the button to agree and pay, so now the app will no longer register anything and comes to a -- Full Stop. Sometimes for variety I am taken back to the opening page where I again choose PayPal which begins the whole procedure all over again.

All I'm trying to do is pay Firefox $0.99@month for this "unlimited" service. It shouldn't be this hard. I have also tried to pay using MS Edge; same thing: 'Server busy, try again later' Any suggestions to rectify this annoying time sink would be welcomed.

I am running FF 102.0 64bit on Windows 10 Pro Version 21H2 Installed on ‎6/‎18/‎2021 OS build 19044.1766 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.4180.0

I used the same account with two computers. I always keep my account in sync. Actually, they do not. My previous notebook has a series of bookmarks, but the bookmarks in the latter one is exactly different. It seems like two accounts, but I log in with the same account. Miracly, when I log the same account with my phone, the bookmarks in my phone is sync with my previous notebook I don't know how to solve it and appreciate your answer.

我有两台笔记本,登录同一个账户时是不同步的。两个笔记本的书签页完全各顾各,但我登录的是一个账户且一直保持着同步。当我用手机登录同一个账户的时候,手机会有第一个笔记本同步;第二个笔记本就好像完全是新的账户。 我不知道怎么解决这个问题,希望专业的你的回复。

Whenever I try to open google or search anything, It shows this error and only button to Go Back

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection. What can you do about it?

www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Someone could be trying to impersonate the site and you should not continue.

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust www.google.com because its certificate issuer is unknown, the certificate is self-signed, or the server is not sending the correct intermediate certificates.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

Since latest version update of Fire Fox, I'm unable to sign into OUTLOOK. I get to the Sign-in Screen, but when I toggle to enter password, page starts to reload login name/password, but page never loads. Tried multiple times in Fire Fox, but launching MS - EDGE I can get logged in and going immediately. Please advise.

My installation of 32-bit Firefox 102 had been repeatedly crashing, sometimes for no apparent reason. I decided to download the 64-bit version of Firefox 102, uninstalled the 32-bit version, carried out a standard installed and all this appeared successful. I noticed that I was getting a lot of advertisements and remembered that I had had Ghostery installed as an extension in my 32-bit Firefox. I went to the extensions page, selected Ghostery and asked for it to be added. Shortly after that, I got a message that the installation had been aborted because the extension might be corrupt. I tried again and got the same message. I tried another ad blocker, and got the same message with that one; and tried a third with the same result. What is going on? I haven't changed any settings in Firefox since the standard installation, and the extensions were from the Firefox source, so how can the extensions be corrupt? If it isn't corrupt, why isn't Firefox installing it?

Hello, I upgraded my windows 8.1 system with firefox on it to windows 10. The windows 10 upgrade saved my windows 8.1 files. I installed firefox on windows 10. I deleted the files created by the install in the folder 'profiles'. When I copy my old firefox profile contents into that firefox profile folder, firefox does not pickup my bookmarks and extensions as I had hoped. Is it possible to get firefox to recognize my old profile contents? Thanks, Doug

Problem/possibly relevant info:

  • yesterday evening, auto-fill for logins/passwords was working
  • when I opened my laptop (from standby) this morning, my welcome screen was frozen at last night's day/time when I lowered the lid so I restarted (press and hold power button; this happens all the time as of the past 6 months or so)
  • logins/passwords have now disappeared
  • Windows 10, Firefox v.102.0 (updated July 1st)

After 2 hours of trying to find answers, I've done/discovered the following:

  • followed steps here: https://lifehacker.com/how-to-recover-your-missing-firefox-passwords-1835616191 -- didn't work
  • I don't have other profiles and am not synced to another device
  • I've had no luck finding an "Old Firefox" folder
  • logins.json, logins.json-2.corrupt, and logins-backup.json all have the same timestamp (this morning) and file size
  • when I open logins.json and logins-back-up.json in Firefox, I get the following message: SyntaxError: JSON.parse: unexpected character at line 1 column 1 of the JSON data (I suspect this is where I'm in big trouble...)

I am very non-techy so any straightforward suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise, I guess I'll have to decide if I want to pay to get it fixed or go to the hassle of re-setting all my passwords. ;)

Thanks!

Thanks to Robert for a quick reply. The problem is that when using FIREFOX, images that are on my website do not appear. However, when using Chrome or any of the others (including my phone), they do appear.

I also think that Firefox is preventing some of the links I receive from connecting.

In short, I am not very happy with Firefox!
