Why I can not open firefox when it have a new update.

Posted

More than 3 years I start firefox with a command line, "rm -rf /Users/mr.suradetc./Library/Caches/Mozilla/updates/Applications/Firefox/updates/;/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox". I have been updated mac os x from Sierra , High Sierra,Mojave and now Catalina but every os, I still got the same problem.

Thank you for your advice. I have installed a Firefox 73.0 (64-bit). I will wait for a new Firefox update that Is it made me a problem or not.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Thank you for your advice. I try to both methods, but the problem still there. My step are, 1.I start Firefox with a command line and force Firefox to get an update, show in the first picture. 2.I restart Firefox in safe mode, show in the second picture. In this step, I found a new error message as shown in the third picture.

Sincerely, Mr.Suradet C.
