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.

It display everything ok, but when I want to download any image from facebook it saves to disk BUT THE IMAGE WONT open, not in win explorer not even in photoshop.

This is extremely weird because this problem only happens on FB, in every other social media or webpage I can download images as I please and everything runs ok, but in FB DONT!! This problem start in late november 2020, until now. I've tried every single advice you offer in the help menu whit no success, I even reset windows and still happen.

I'm thinking that Facebook have introduce some sort of new code that protect images from been downloaded. Do you guys know why FB IMAGES DOWNLOAD AS CORRUPT FILES  ?


My config Windows 10 desktop latest update Firefox 84.0.61 (64-bit) No drivers conflict.

Every time there is a new release of firefox, i go through the same process... I install the release, all is well. i download a file and firefox does it, however it is not to where i want it. it downloads to the download folder.

It is then that I realize that the release changed my options of asking me where to download the file. If a USER has specified to be asked where to download the file, this should not be changed with every release change.

How would you like it if every release asked you what language you would like???

Once the settings are made in options, the new release should not modify it to what firefox thinks it should be.

Thanks

I have downloaded Firefox recently and have signed in my Firefox account. After dowwnloading, I was asked to install updates, which I did. After the second installation although at my programs menu I have one Firefox installed at the start page there are two icons of Firefox. Also, at the recently added programs there are there are two firefox icons. If I will press the one it opens the Firefox browser showing me signing in. If i will press the other icon it does not show me signing in. Is it a normal state. Can you figure out the two Firefox icons created. How can I delete the one? It does not let me delete them by pressing delete. Thank you for reading.

'i bought a new mac air. The Genius Bar did not transfer firefox from my old mac air to my new one. i was on chat for an hour with apple support last night and they could not get it down. Right now, safari is working ok on the new mac air but my wife wants firefox because i guess she has a bunch of bookmarks and other things stored there. plus a history, i guess. The message from firefox on the new mac air reads "we're having trouble getting your pages back". Firefox seems go be working well on the old mac air.

also since we took her mac air to the Genius Bar, she has not been able to receive emails. they are locked down on the Monday Genius so-called worked on the migration/
