Extra home page appears every time I click to open a .pdf from Microsoft NAV. It downloads the file (does not open it) but it opens a new home page to do this. I have to always delete this. The download is on the already open home page. How do I stop it from opening another home page every time I try to open one of these .pdf files from another application?

I want all downloads and files to save to a specific folder on an external hard drive. It used to go there. But now, even when I change the location in "settings" and "about:config", when I save it goes to "Documents". Right now, but say it's set to my desired location, but when I do a "save as" it goes right to "Documents", as if "settings" isn't even there.

How to I get the save location to stay where I want it to be every time?

I am currently having problems with my Firefox browser. For example often if I type something into the google search box at the right of the address bar and hit return nothing happens until I go down and select Bing instead of the google setting. Also in hotmail (I am on a desktop) if I go to reply, the original is now ether twice. This does not happen if I use Google browser. But I prefer Firefox as I have used it for years.

My concern is if I delete Firefox and reinstall it, I may lose some of the settings or bookmarks that I have set over the years.

Any suggestions? Please simple as i am old and not computer savvy.

Your help would be so appreciated. I am currently on Firefox 107.0 (64 bit)

Thanks, Anthony

bold text Hello,

        no more Firefox since yesterday :-(
        
        Strange Problem. Suddenly no link functioned (Sound "pupup") Firefox freezes :-( Close and ... Firefox 
        didn't start :-( Boot ... same reaction!
        
        Saving Firefox-Profile and deinstall/install with newest install from Mozilla! And what happened?
        
        Install creates "c:\program files\mozilla firefox", ignoring my system 64-bit!? No profile under 
       "c:\users\&user\appdata\roaming\mozilla"! Icon on desktop.
        
        How can I install Firefox again? Installing without virusscanner and firewall, all tested!
        
        In the moment on the way with Chrome ...
        
        All the best from Dortmund and stay healthy!

I am a computer user. Don't try to be able to be a power user, as I have better things to do with my time. I downloaded Firefox to be able to take some FEMA courses required for my Search and Rescue volunteering. I download it and installed. Launch the program and followed instructions to set up an account. OK that seemed a bit much for a free browser but I assumed like all internet based companies it was a data collection exercise that would test my dedication to blocking all email spam.

After the account set-up, I was met with the concept that I needed a browser on a second machine to be linked to the account. Some lame excuse that you couldn't sync with only on computer with the browser. Funny thing why would you want to sync if you only had one machine with the browser. Have a simple backup system would take care of any of that. Oh well I was stuck because the browser would not function and I followed through with downloading the program onto my iPhone and scanning the code. It seemed to work. The only acknowledgments is a continuing barrage of emails telling me "someone is trying to log into my account." Yea that's me because I got asked a second time to set-up this bloody link. Some something is not working.

I would just delete everything (account and Firefox) but I am scared that my email address will be tarred and feathered and not allowed to be used again ever!!

Help please. What I hoped to be a quiet morning completing 2 need courses has ended up costs me hours of frustration.

Thanks

Mike

After a reboot, clicked to open firefox. Message said it already open. Tried another computer reboot. Tried uninstall and was stopped by message saying firefox open and must be closed to uninstall. Downloaded both install packages and neither worked. The small package was stopped with a message, "Humm, ...did not work... try again...". the Big package just hung at about 90% saying "A little housekeeping".

Am baffled, and hope someone can help.

Thanks,

Bill BAne

I just installed Firefox for the first time and I downloaded a pdf and when I went to access it, Firefox shortened the name of the file to two letters. When I tried to rename it to the full name, it only gave me so many letters. That never happened to me with Chrome.

In short, I am looking for the Firefox 68 armhf deb? package installation file for Raspberry Pi OS (Raspbian) 10.

---

I use Raspbian 10 (Raspberry Pi OS). I used to keep a Firefox ESR 68 on hold (apt-mark hold) on 1 of my 2 Raspberry Pi machines. I offered this machine to a friend.

Now on my only left Raspberry Pi, Firefox ESR 68 is no longer provided by apt.

But I still need Firefox 68 on it, in order to remotely debug my userscripts on Firefox for Android 68.11.0 (latest version to support add-ons like Violentmonkey, thus userscripts) through adb.

Anyone knows how to install it back? I think I need an armhf.deb file, right?

I found: http://legacy.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/f/firefox-esr/ https://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/f/firefox-esr/ https://github.com/jdonald/firefox-armhf/releases

But no trace of a version 68 deb file.

I then found some firefox-68.11.0esr.tar.bz2 in https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/68.11.0esr/linux-x86_64/ Is x86_64 same as armhf? How do we install .tar.bz2 files in Linux?

I also see a firefox-68.11.0esr.snap in https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/68.11.0esr/snap/ I would like to avoid installing snap but maybe I should try this instead, does it include armhf?

Why does Firefox keep screwing up my computer? I converted to version 88, and this morning Firefox has changed things again!! It is 89.0, again, even though I said "do not upgrade without my permission". The colors of the tabs are white again this morning, but at least I can see which tabs are playing. And my "Show Side Bars" and "View History" icons are back. It appears the visual problems in the web pages that I use are fixed; I can see that I have "Liked" comments in Facebook, and I can see likes in Rumble. I am grateful for those things.

But I hate the white Tabs bar at the top of the screen. And in this mess I lost all my previously open tabs. How do I get my previously open tabs back?
