Hey I have the same problem but I'm using kali linux (download not more then 1 month& update/upgrade every day)and windows 8. Both firefox with same account.Whenever I input my new password. It's gives me update popup. But it's not update. I don't know about other account but I found in bugcrowd( I use a lot :D ).

kali firefox ESR version:- 52.9.0 (64-bit) windows 8 firefox version:- 61.0.2 (32-bit)

Another one problem is when I download something from internet it's open with visual studio code. But it should open with file manager. I checked everything works fine. If I download txt file from internet and it's open with code I will accept but unfortuanate it's working as a filemanager but it's not.

Hi, again. Not a lot to go on. For others that may follow and I have done a bunch of questions since so if you could please document the issue again or give the URL to the Previous Question. Need to do something about that..... Question if it is still open and is answered. I can not.

I gather a older system, low on ram and rural.

Linux & Windows .... See what works
