About a week ago I started getting these update error messages stating "Update available - Firefox couldn't update automatically. Download the new version". I've also tried clicking "Learn more" on the error message but it's a dead link. Going into the settings for updates I am set to auto update, but when I manually check for updates it says "Failed to check for updates".

The help article on this issue simply tells you to download and manually reinstall Firefox, but I'm having to do this nearly every day. I work in IT myself so I know a "bandaid" workaround when I see one. Is there a solution to this issue?

I did an Upgrade to a version of Firefox that would bypass those "Your Browser Is Not Supported" messages that apparently come from "Cloud-flare." I figured [naievely!] that my addons would "port" to the upgrade. They didn't. Is there any way [e.g., a putative backup file, perhaps] that would allow this?

Thanks in advance...!

I have Firefox 124.0.2 running on Windows 11. For some reason, I can't update Firefox. When I manually down load the update file, it appears to run Ok, but the version doesn't change. If I go to settings and click on "Check for Updates" is comes back and says Failed to Check for Updates. How do I fix this?

It has been observed that when a user uses the Firefox browser and tries to download a DDD file, the file format is .pdf instead of .ddd. In the devtools, it was observed that the content-type is text/plain in the response to the request. I changed the content-type to application/octet-stream, but the error still persists

I have Windows 11 and Firefox 124.0.2. Firefox keeps asking to reinstall. I think it is because I keep getting the message that it fails to check for updates. I don't know if I have installed the Microsoft Firefox or the direct Mozilla Firefox downloaded. Maybe that is the problem, but I am not tech savvy. I have used Firefox for many years and like it. I am also too old (83) to deal with these problems. Help!

Hello, I've installed Firefox twice in the last couple of days (Windows 10 - I think) and I continue to receive messages that say I need to install the latest version.

Do you issue updates daily, or is there something wrong with my Firefox installation or is it something else?

Thank you.

Hello everyone,

I started using firefox actively a year back or something like that, last couple of months it started driving me nuts as it started updating every time I launch it, which is very annoying even if it takes only 10 15 seconds, I sometimes need to check something really quick and I have to wait for it to finish installing an update, even though I checked the setting for it to do so in the background, it seems to only do it after I launch it disrupting my workflow, which made me switch back to Chrome temporarily, is there a way to fix this?

I recently downloaded the new version of Firefox and dragged it to the application folder. When it asked if I wanted to retain or replace the existing version I clicked replace. Then I found my computer is too old to run the new version. Can I still get and download the previous firefox browser version?

After downloading latest version of Firefox my bookmarks where deleted, so I restored my laptop back to an earlier date and now just Dismiss it when it says an update is available. How will I know when this problem has been taken care of where I can update Firefox? Firefox is the only browser I have as I've did everything to block Microsoft from taking over my laptop. I'm fixing to delete my old Microsoft account to complete that procedure. I'd have to research Chrome to see if they attempt to control what I can do with my laptop like Microsoft does. My only problem with Firefox was they allowed Microsoft to do it's best to change my system to Edge, but I'm still fighting them.

Just noticed at bottom of this page under Troubleshooting information,

 "securitySoftware": {
   "registeredAntiVirus": "Microsoft Defender Antivirus"

Now I see I still have connections to Microsoft. Thank you Mozilla for showing me this. I've got to change my security for this. Hope Firefox has it's on.
