Hello,


I apologize in advance for my low level in English, I am a French internet user who has encountered a problem since this morning. I have Mozilla Firefox on Windows 10. So far, it has worked perfectly. However, I could see today, by turning on my computer that I could no longer access Mozilla Firefox. Indeed, when I click on it, I encounter this error message:

Windows did not find c: \ program files \ mozilla firefox \ firefox.exe. verify that you entered the correct name and try again


I do not understand why I have this message. When I go to C: \ Program files \ mozilla firefox I do have a "firefox" icon (exe application). but I clicked on it and it doesn't work. I would like to inform that by using avast, avast updated me mozilla firefox ... I repeatedly uninstall and reinstall mozilla firefox; I even turned off, turn on, and turn on the computer several times but nothing to do, it does not work.

Can you help me see more clearly please?

Thanks in advance.

Ao execuatr o firefox.exe mesmo como administrador o erro ocorre: O Windows não pode encontrar "C:\Program Files\Mozila Firefox\firefox.exe. Certifique-se que o nome foi digitado corretamente e tente novamente". Já utilizei o AVAST, o Malwarebytes, já desinstalei e reinstalei novamente e o erro continua.

Hello- ever since computer was updated to Firefox 60.2.0 esr, I have not been able to find but about 5-total add-ons and extensions. I had about 15- or so before updating Firefox. Where would I find them?

 I just received a message from my Avast Free Anti-Virus that said I should remove a bad reputation add-on I never heard of & I surely could not find it using the 4- horizontal bars at the top right of the Browser.  

Thanks!

While accessing Amazon via an email link, I received a notice saying that the browser I was using does not support modern security standards that Amazon and others use to protect customers. I was asked to update my browser to protect my payment information. I went to the Mozilla site and it tells me I am using the latest version of Firefox. What else should I do?

Trying to get my mom's Mac back online. The Safari browser on her OSX 10.7 machine would not work with Google Mail last year after they made some upgrades. We installed Firefox and she could get her mail. It has been offline for several months due to unrelated issues. Today it accessed Gmail. I then downloaded Avast free edition for Mac. After that Firefox gives an invalid certificate error on every page - Google.com, even Mozilla.com. I have closed Avast but the problem seems to be in Mozilla. I thought it might need updating so I attempted to download the update. Still giving this error. I disabled the Avast add-on to Firefox. Still does it. The current version is 43.0.3 now, after restarting it. It was updated from ver 39.0.

At wit's end. Is this thing just too old?

Yesterday I upgraded to the newest version of Firefox (66.0, 64-bit). I use Avast Antivirus for virus protection, and I noticed after I upgraded to the new version of Firefox and went to go online, the Avast Online Security Browser Extension showed that the automatic blocking of trackers was disabled, so I clicked More Settings and re-checked the things that were previously unchecked (the do not track boxes), afterwhich I clicked Save, and everything was A-OK.

After I was finished, I closed the page I was on.

When I went back in awhile later, the same thing occurred, and I had to do the same thing all over again.

I'm not sure what to do so I don't have to keep repeating the same process over & over again. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I'm unsure whether this is Firefox-related or Avast-related. I did post over at Avast's forums, too.

Thanks in advance.

I am running Firefox 66.0.2 (64-bit) on a Windows 10 machine, up to date at 1 April 2019. (No this is not an April Fool's joke!)

Some time ago, Firefox (and Thunderbird) stopped saving logins and passwords and as I had better things to do, I just put up with it. Now I would like to sort the problem out, but can find nothing specific on this problem. The closest advice is at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/password-manager-remember-delete-change-and-import#w_make-firefox-remember-usernames-and-passwords

On this page the advice is all about clicking an a key icon. Problem is: the latest version of Firefox has no key icon.

When I check under Options-> Privacy & Security->Logins & Passwords the box to tick for "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" is faded out and does not work.

I have tried to attach screen shots of the instructions described, but they will not load.

I have looked all over Firefox Help but all the answers direct you back to the about instruction about clicking the key icon which is simply not present on my screen.

Other thoughts:-

Could Avast Free Antivirus have given me a 'free trial' that has upset the system?

Could Duckduckgo be in conflict with Firefox about privacy, i.e. password management?

Any suggestions?

This is a mixed site that you do not "sign-in" to. I can't find a way to make sure it will load everything.

"Windows cannot find 'C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again."

As advised in an earlier post, I ran Malwarebytes and re-installed Firefox. But I'm still getting the same message.

Thank you in advance.

Firefox just did an automatic update to version 65.0 (Firefox Quantum, 32 bit) and ALL of my websites are blocked with the message, "Your connection is not secure".

This is what I get back when I try to access Google: "The owner of www.google.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website."

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox may only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.


Even your own website is stopped with this message: "The owner of qsurvey.mozilla.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website."

...and Firefox will NOT allow me to bypass this warning, making the browser useless. I'm using Chrome to send you this message.

Since today (6/10/2020) I can't run Firefox on Windows 10. Windows says it can't find the route to access, but even if I go to the path and double-click the .exe file, it still says it can't find it. I'm using Windows 10 in spanish, so there's some sort of alias for C:\Program Files\, but it should still work when executing the .exe directly. I've tried reinstalling, uninstalling and reinstalling and uninstalling, deleting my profiles and reinstalling, all to no avail.

Hi

I am running the latest version of Firefox 66.0.4 etc with the add-ons mostly back after running studies, but Firefox now won't open pages (it endlessly boots on a new pages tab) and when I click on the add-ons (such as Zotero) they don't work. The first one to not work after they reappeared was Avast Online Security - so I have disabled it. Anyone know how to make it all work properly again? I am using Windows 7 Home Edition ( but, apparently not for long) and have had to ask this question via Waterfox - as Firefox doesn't work at all

Thanks
