Firefox downloads the update, "Installs", and after that it says that I need to restart the firefox. I restart firefox, but it says that the partial update was not applied, and will download the complete file in order to update. After that, it restarts, and says there were problems to perform the update.

When I try to perform a fresh install it says extracting and then the program disappears and does nothing.

Please help.

Firefox has stopped inserting my password since version 23 (only on this computer). When i'm trying to sign in, it inserts my login only, without a password. "Remember passwords for sites" option is enabled. Also I can see all of my password in the "Saved Passwords" window. I have another computer with Firefox (Firefox Sync enabled, same extensions and plugins, same settings), and it works fine there.

Hello when I minimize my firefox 25 window by clicking on the icon in the taskbar, it vanishes into a background process. this has only happened since i updated to win 8.1. with win 8.0, i did not observe this behavior. I do not find the missing window under "recently closed tabs" or in the history. I cannot access it by clicking the icon in the taskbar again. If, however, I click a bookmark of one of the tabs which are open in the vanished window, it opens again with all the tabs active. This behavior makes it nearly impossible to reasonably work with firefox. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I don't even know if there is any interaction between Firefox and gmail. I just know it's a pain every time I want to use mail, I have to log in. I don't have to log in with Internet Explorer. My purpose here is to take advantage of Firefox not being infected with SPAM etc. Where and how do I set Firefox as my default browser, and what are the other advantages? Keep it simple, guys, I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Mozilla crashed about 15 mins into a timed online assessment for my university course which i cannot repeat. On attempting to get info on the crash, so that my university could see that i wasn't lying about the time of the crash and the website i was on, the time stamp changed to when i clicked on the link for more detailed info.

I was wondering if there was anywhere i could get the original time stamp as the time seems to have changed on my about:crashes page as well.

Urgent help would be most appreciated.

How do I make adjustments in PASSWORD MGR on sites that require that I update my password frequently?

Some websites (banks, pharmacies, etc) require periodic and frequent updates of passwords for security reasons. If a password is stored in Password Manager and such an occasion arises, how is this handled? For example, when this password is changed on the bank from simonsays1 to simonsays2 does this affect the password for ALL accounts using the simonsays1 or will that change the account only for the bank while leaving all other accounts the same at simonsays1 ? As you can imagine, this would make Password Manager not as convenient as it might seem. Or, is it possible to include the passwords that never change in Password Manager and exclude those-like the one in this example-that will change frequently? Thank you.

I knew from years ago that you could have multiple profiles in Firefox, and since Chrome is really choking handling games like Farmville 2 lately (not sure why, but Firefox is Zynga's recommended browser anyway), I decided to set up profiles and profile shortcuts. But there's a BIG problem. With Chrome, when I set up shortcuts to profiles, which Chrome lets you do with one click, by the way, if I have one profile already open, I can open windows in all the separate profiles just by using their shortcuts. In Firefox, I cannot. If I have one profile open, the other shortcuts merely open windows in the same profile already open. This is not acceptable. It's not like the profiles are in the same directory. They're in separate directories and there should be no issue opening two or more profiles at the same time.

Firefox.exe -p or firefox -ProfileManager opens a new window with the home page. Does anyone know how and why this should be happening?

Now I've changed (several) dozens of options in about:config over the years and everything works exactly as expected apart from this thing. Is there something that could be reverted to get the desired result, or is there another way to get to the profile manager?

Details of my OS, settings and addons are available ---------------->>>
