For over a year now I have had boxes popping up in my apple macbook air saying i need to update to the latest version of firefox but then two things happen, one is i go through the whole process only to get to the end and be told that it could not update due to a problem with the system administrator, but i have checked with apple and with my husband, whose name the accounts are in, and we have all of the passwords correct, so we don't know what the problem is. Also the firefox (or mozilla? it's orange) disk drive icon is showing up on my desktop, but it's still not updated to my system. So now i'm starting to have problems in a lot of websites because my version is not up to date and therefore not providing adequate security. Please help!

Hello. Some time ago I installed a program on my PC and either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox started having problems when trying to access some websites (eg: I go to https://www.google.pt and all is good, but if I remove the "s" from https it don't work; Also I am here posting using Mozilla Firefox because this websits is https). I tried a fix I found on youtube, that was changing the chrome.exe name to something like chrome1.exe, worked, but only for a few days. Tried to reinstall Google Chrome and nothing. Later I installed Google Chrome 64 bits and since then I am not having problems with Chrome, but Firefox is still with problem. Microsoft Edge (I've Windows 10) works perfectly. Now talking a bit more about the problem. Trying to access http://www.tecmundo.com.br/ , http://www.google.pt/ , http://agar.io/ , and lots of other webpages, the uploaded message shows (in portuguese, and I dont know how to change language to english quickly). I think it is maybe some adware or so that I installed with that program that is causing the problem, as it's not affecting Edge, didn't affected Chrome when I changed the exe file name and don't affect 64bit Chrome. What would I do? I tried many fixes that I found in this site and nothing is working, so I thank you for help to fix it. Thanks.

It use to be that clearing browser cache really was a one click operation. Since the last update this is no longer the case. Now it can take up to 50 clicks to clear. And when cache total gets below 100MB it goes down by tenths! I have arthritis in my hands and this is very painful!

I have JUST installed Mozilla Firefox as Youtube is a lot slower on Chrome and so far Youtube is a lot faster, I haven't installed ANY add-ons/extensions but I am unable to watch streams on twitch.tv. I have attached screenshots with what is coming up. All the solutions I have found online just say to disable any extensions or startup in safe mode which doesn't apply to me as I haven't even downloaded anything extra for firefox yet.

screenshot isn't loading, The problem is that, at the top left of my screen it says the webpage isn't secure and information can be accessed.

Administrator on 64-bit Windows 7 Professional unable to open existing Firefox (45.0.1) or install 46.0.1 (with save or run) -- ALL ATTEMPTS produce this pop-up: "A required privilege is not held by the client."

Version 45.0.1 was working. As I usually do and have done for many versions of Firefox, I downloaded Firefox Setup Stub 46.0.1 with Save rather than Run. However, I could not run it from the download. Firefox was still working. Then I used the Update from inside Firefox (which I presume was the same download), and Firefox has not worked since. I cannot open it with the icon on my taskbar, by using the Start menu, or by clicking on firefox.exe in C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox.

I have spent HOURS searching and reading and trying possible solutions to other problems (not Firefox) where the users had that, or a similar, message. Nothing has worked.

The Securities tab of the Properties of the firefox.exe file shows three "Group or user names" -- SYSTEM, Administrators (with-my-name-here), and Users (with-my-name-again). SYSTEM and Administrators have all "Permissions for Users" allowed (except for "Special permissions" for which neither Allow nor Deny is ticked). Users has ticks to Allow only for "Read & execute" and "Read".

The Advanced Security Settings show me as Administrator as the Owner. I have "Full control" in Permissions (not inherited), and a second entry with me as Administrator also indicates "Full control" (inherited from C:\Program Files (x86)\ for this entry). The SYSTEM entry also has "Full control" (inherited from C:\Program Files (x86)\ . The Users (with-my-name) has a "Read & execute" Permission (inherited from C:\Program Files (x86)\ .

So, I have "Full control".

What does "A required privilege is not held by the client" mean?

Who is the client?

What is the "required privilege"?

And where does one get it?

For a few days I have been receiving pop-ups about updating to a newer version of Thunderbird. Normally I would do so without hesitation (as I have done in the past with Firefox). However, I am now afraid to attempt this in case the same thing happens with Thunderbird and I can't access my emails. At least I can use another browser (as I am obviously doing to post this).

Years ago I used Netscape Navigator (preferred) and Internet Explorer. The first time I used Firefox was at an Internet café on a holiday. I had to learn to use it because it was the only browser on the machines. When I got home, I downloaded Firefox and have been using it ever since. I loved the multiple tabs (which IE did not have at the time). I have IE and Chromodo on my machine, but I only use them for sites that don't work with Firefox (fewer and fewer as the years have gone by).

Can someone help me so that I can return to Firefox? Please?

Previously, when I center clicked a link etc, my screen switched to the new tab. Since installing recent update, I believe v46, the screen no longer switches to new tab until I click the new tab.

Similar questions have been answered, but if they included the solution to this problem, I have not understood. I gather there is a solution in an Accounts page in Options, but I have not ben able to find it.

Mozilla's Recent Implementation of Control of Firefox's Website Add-Ons/Permissions <"Page Info window"> @ Address Bar . . . (GASP!)

I've read, reread, printed out, perused ad infinitum the Mozilla article concerning the content of the above-mentioned, all to no avail. To state that the control over website "permissions" is a frustration, heartache, and dismal failure for the end user, is an understatement!

Adobe Flash Player (v.21.0.0.197) crashes continuously! Firefox (v.45.0.1) crashes continuously! Shockwave Player application crashes also. My online experience has become intolerable and, because the predominate use of my PC is used online, this misery is of paramount importance that relief be sought and applied ASAP! This issue has gone on long enough, for over a year plus! HELP!

The article explaining all related is of no value whatsoever. One cannot permanently set options; once a website is given permission, a function should be available to make it permanent! I the entire program is a nightmare!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(GASP . . . H-E-L-P???

I've been away for a few days and have just checked Google Calendar on my PC but find it's totally unresponsive. Having searched the Google forum it looks as if folk are saying it's a Firefox issue. Don't know if this is correct, all I know is, I can access Calendar on Android but not using Firefox browser on my PC.

I am regularly getting a blue screen shut down and the error "bad pool caller". The common thread I can tell is it happens when Firefox is running. I am going to use a different browser for a few days to confirm. Also seems to have started occurring after moving to Windows 10. Would having a older video card be a contributing cause? If there are any suggestions or questions please let me know. Thanks Gus50310

It's accusing I know but I can prove it, if I give you permission to walk thru my account you will see for yourself. Every site go to I either receive an error or some information that just isn't true. They won't let me sign into my own account. When I try to go elsewhere I am followed with the same antics, because every time, these other sites are partners with at&t etc etc etc. I know this site is it's own boss therefore I want to become a full time all out member. I will pay my dues of course . Now what do I do!??
