Failure to install extensions

My installation of 32-bit Firefox 102 had been repeatedly crashing, sometimes for no apparent reason. I decided to download the 64-bit version of Firefox 102, uninstalled the 32-bit version, carried out a standard installed and all this appeared successful. I noticed that I was getting a lot of advertisements and remembered that I had had Ghostery installed as an extension in my 32-bit Firefox. I went to the extensions page, selected Ghostery and asked for it to be added. Shortly after that, I got a message that the installation had been aborted because the extension might be corrupt. I tried again and got the same message. I tried another ad blocker, and got the same message with that one; and tried a third with the same result. What is going on? I haven't changed any settings in Firefox since the standard installation, and the extensions were from the Firefox source, so how can the extensions be corrupt? If it isn't corrupt, why isn't Firefox installing it?

Tried uninstall, update, troubleshoot mode, restart, clear cache, malware detect, task mgr, etc. Windows 10 software, drivers, firewall, hardware, memory, etc are ok.

Firefox hangs, no rhyme or reason, random pages, every hour or so.

Am I the only one having issue?

Hello, I upgraded my windows 8.1 system with firefox on it to windows 10. The windows 10 upgrade saved my windows 8.1 files. I installed firefox on windows 10. I deleted the files created by the install in the folder 'profiles'. When I copy my old firefox profile contents into that firefox profile folder, firefox does not pickup my bookmarks and extensions as I had hoped. Is it possible to get firefox to recognize my old profile contents? Thanks, Doug

Your updates should be consolidated every 2 or 3 months, and not ask us for updates every few days or weeks. It might seem important to you, but it's super annoying, especially when your automatic updates don't work well anymore. I keep getting a "updates are available" pop-up at the menu bar, and then clicking on it brings me to the download page. I have to download and install every time you bring in a minor update! Also, the school I work in works behind a firewall. Your descriptions and updates always fail their safety precautions, and I have to get the administrator to unlock every time for minor updates! Please organize your updates a little more better.

Other than what i described above, i have submitted questions, and now FF is blinking ! This is a very unstable release!. Mozilla needs to retract this crap and work on a real browser update. I was prompted to update to 102, then after experiencing tons of problems, another update, to 102.1, which achieved....nothing at all.

What is going on with mozilla? this is crazy!

This has really affected my productivity. I need someone from support to answer this question, and I see I'm not the only one with issues.

Hi there,

I have a problem. I had two windows with aprox 30 really important tabs each open at all times. Somehow firefox closed those two windows when I opened a third window (I don't know why and it doesn't matter tbh) and I didn't notice. I opened other temp windows and because of that the previous two with the important tabs were deleted from the chronic.

Is there any way at all to restore those two?

In my sessionstore-backups directory there are six files. previous.jsonlz4, recovery.baklz4 and recovery.jsonlz4. The other two are upgrade.jsonlz4 with a date at the end. The last one is from 20220630. Could this possibly be some older backup from my chronic with my old two windows? If so, is there a way to restore those? Just renaming them didn't seem to work...

I'd be glad for any help anybody could give me. :)

The Bookmark menu used to open with ONE click. Now it assumes you're using the same bookmark, and if you want a different one, you have to click twice. I have many bookmark categories, and I usually have to click twice to get to the menu to choose a folder/location.

I looked for but couldn't find an OPTION for it to work as it used to, open with one click. I'm disappointed that I couldn't find this option. I hope the option to return to the way it used to work will be available in the next Firefox update.

For at least a year, the Healthline site stopped working in FireFox. This was finally corrected a few weeks ago. Now, for the last couple of weeks Reddit no longer works. Both of the above sites have always worked in Brave and Opera. A work around for Healthline was to run it in a private window but this does not work for Reddit. This has become very annoying to the point I am ready to give up on FF. Any suggestions?

See dialog box screen print below. The .cpp file is not a GIT file. A .cpp file is a C++ program source file from Microsoft Visual Studio, and I should be able to open the file with Visual Studio 2019 (current version of Visual Studio on my PC). But misclassifying the .ccp file as GIT does not give me the option of opening the file with Visual Studio 2019. How do I change the classification of .cpp files from GIT to C++ (I'm on the newest version of Firefox...all prior versions worked correctly) ?
