I recently downloaded Firefox in order to try to install it on a Windows VM. When I download the regular (online) installer and checked it with VirusTotal, one of the VirusTotal "engines" detected it as malicious. Therefore, I located the "offline" installer file on your website and ran it inside the VM.

A few minutes after I performed the installation, I got a "setup.exe" alert box saying "The system detected an overrun of a stack-based buffer in this application. This overrun could potentially allow a malicious user to gain control of this application."

Note: I cannot be sure this error actually pertains to Firefox (as it's a remote desktop connection to a shared VM so maybe somebody else was trying to install something). But the error did pop up shortly after I ran the Firefox installer. Also, this only happened once.

VM information: 4 CPUs; 16GB memory (1.28 GB active); hard disk 150 GB. Compatibility: ESXi 6.5 an later (VM version 13)

OS information: Windows 2019 Datacenter; Processor: Intel Xeon CPU ES-2697 v3 @ 2.60GHz 2.59GHz (4 processors) Installed RAM: 16.0 GB; 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor.

Hi, there. I've been using FF ESR as my primary browser for over 3 years. However, I keep encountering update problem, which by clicking menu button and the pop-up update option. Then, the browser will update my 64-bit ESR into 32-bit ESR. I feel so confused and upset I have to update manually by downloading the whole new 64-bit version from official site even though a minor update. The latest version was 78.5 ESR 64-bit reinstalled along the OS on DEC. 2020, Now using 78.10 ESR 64-bit. Is there any solution for me to use pop-up update on menu option? Environment: Windows 7 ultimate SP1 64-bit Thanks!

We R dinosasauers with some things and asking the right question is everything. We want to transfer g mail to Firefox or eliminate G mail spam altogether. Is this possible?

We use the Guest User to login to checked out iPads to students. We are using Macbook Airs with the M1 chip. When trying to use Firefox I received the error message "you don't have permission to open the application". I received this message for Google also. So I uninstalled both apps under my admin login and reinstalled with the latest versions. I also updated the MB Air to the latest Big Sur version. Google was able to load without a problem. Firefox on the other hand will not load. It bounces once in the dock and then doesn't continue to load. I logged back in with my Admin user and changed the permissions to see if that worked and Firefox still won't load. So I tried to lower the Security setting for the MB Air and that also did not work for Firefox.

Any suggestions on what else to try?

Thanks in advance.
