Even though another application is selected under Options-Applications for "mailto", it still changes the mailto to FireFox in the registry under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\open\command and HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\DefaultIcon.

This only happens when FireFox updates itself. It does not happen when FireFox starts.

Firefox Nightly does not recognize any programs.

For example, when I download a configuration file from Zoom, it asks me what to do with that file.

Usually, My firefox recommends me some programs or I can browse through a few suggestions.

With Firefox Nightly, there is absolutely nothing suggested... I need to browse to the programs .exe file.

Why is that? Is that so because I got both browsers installed?? This is very annoying. I would like to use the nightly version. It seems not to have that "loading" issue of websites which my firefox always has.

I often view pictures on https://www.pixiv.net/ When I select one jpg image on pixiv.net, copy this picture and then paste it to somewhere else, It becomes completely blank. And the copied image file is broken due to unknown reasons. Here I added one picture. It shows the result when I paste a said jpg image from pixiv.net to somewhere else (like a word document page). This issue happens with firefox 83 and firefox beta 84. It never happens with firefox 82. I don't know what caused this issue.

I have been trying to install Firefox on a Windows computer running Windows 10 Pro. I have two users on the computer. I have installed Firefox successfully on the main user but every time I try to install for the second user, it does not install. it says it failed and leaves a strange icon on the desktop which, when I click, it deletes the file. I am not sure why. I have installed the same on 11 other computers with two users and no problem with those ones.

So Im trying to download a 1.19GB file and get 300mb/s ethernet speed using speedtest.net/ Now normally from my experience its never taken longer that 10 sec to Download such a file. Although since today, either Firefox or my pc has decided to limit download speed to 90kb/s which means this is going to take 3h or so to download. I use Windows 10, don't have a metered plan enabled or any other wifi/ethernet speed limiting things, and no third party security software. Anyone have any ideas why this could be happening? Many thanks in advance

I tried to change some things in about:config which resulted in websites not working properly and reverting the changes wouldn't fix it, so I had to do a refresh of Firefox. The sites work like they used to now.

I'm still confused about Firefox Sync's functionality because when I set it up to sync my tabs it never wants to do it, but immediately after the refresh it downloaded all of my Add-ons right away, which was nice to see. However, my settings/options from those Add-ons are missing, like my uBlock filter lists or various Tampermonkey user scripts.

Is there any way I could recover the Add-on settings from the profile backup which the refresh created on my Desktop? There's a folder called browser-extension-data with some other folders inside, but they're all empty. I tried looking for it myself but couldn't find solutions. I also have a complete profile backup I manually made just before I the Refresh as a safety measure if needed. Thank you very much..!

I'm trying to download Firefox on a Mac, Version 10.15.7. After I drag the Firefox icon to the App folder in the popup window, another window appears, "Preparing to copy to Applications." The process never gets beyond this point, however long I wait. A faded Firefox listing shows in my Applications folder, with a circle with line thru it.

I am looking for the exact site we need to access to perform auto updates to Firefox DE on Windows 10 64-bit v. 1909. We have numerous security precautions in place and we currently can't access the auto updates area. Our security does not allow us to open the entire downloads area, so we are looking for the exact URL that is required for auto updates to function. We are also wondering if it is possible to have the auto updates point to a local server. This would allow us to bypass giving the full access to the website URL and just point customers locally within our own environment.

Thanks.

I had to get a new hard drive on my laptop, so I'm sure you can imagine how stressed I already am.

Plus I'm in Spain, and the computer guy who fitted the new hard drive has set my computer language to Spanish, which so far I'm unable to change!

Anyway... I'm hoping someone can help me reinstall my firefox settings and tabs etc.

I did this once before and recalled it being very easy, however I've just followed the instructions and I'm not getting anywhere.

I've got a windows tablet, where the original firefox settings were copied to years ago. It's all up to date.

Since my hard drive on my laptop was trashed, and I have a new one fitted, I'm hoping I can now copy all of the firefox settings from my tablet, onto the reborn laptop.

I've typed in %appdata%\Mozilla\firefox\profiles\ and 2 files are listed.

pjdchlcd.default-release

And

xiwodwfv.default-1561288394972

The instructions tell me to right click, and copy,however on my tablet I have no mouse, so can't right click. (I'm not great using the tablet becauseit has no mouse, and as such, have barely used it)

So here I'm already stuck!

I had the option to copy full path, but could not paste anything to the usb when I did that.

Any help at this time would be much appreciated!

I deleted every Firefox and Mozilla file and folder I could find on my Mac. This was a scorched-Earth deletion (or so I thought). The Firefox application, my profile folder, any user Library files I could find, even caches - I deleted everything. The hope was I could reinstall a pristine version of Firefox (Firefox has been going zombie on me since May). I installed the latest download, signed into my Firefox account - and suddenly, it knew all my previous-used passwords and bookmarks. I thought these were stored in your Profiles folder (and not in the cloud somewhere) -- which I had deleted? How did Firefox find them if they were no longer on my Mac?
