I seem to be encountering various problems since the update to 73, the main one is the profile folder, I dislike the default location so have previously just put my preferred location in appdata\roaming\mozila\profiles.ini but 73 regularly ignores this and puts a basic profile in the default location and alters profile.ini. Using the profile manager does not get any better results. I am also having problems with the home page, I have set a custom page but 73 often resets this to a blank page or sometimes the default home page. I have had to resort to a 'portable' version as 73 constantly resetting things was getting so annoying but the portable does not work well as a default browser.

Am trying to take an online assessment for a job. I’m getting - Error: Firefox can not see the cpu or ram on this PC. I’m running win 10 64bit and have the latest version of Firefox installed. I’ve turned off thumbprints, added the site as a trusted site and pretty much killed all security for this site. How can I let FF see the cpu/ram?

Hi,

I want the users to be able to update Firefox themselves. right now it says "Update failed. download the latest version" but when I do that that doesn't work either.

I already unblocked https://aus3.mozilla.org and ^.*mozilla.*$, but that doesn't work. From where do the updates come from? Can I get the update.xml myself?

The web filter we use is Websense Triton.

https://aus3.mozilla.org/update/3/Firefox/33.0.2/20141027150301/WINNT_x86-msvc/en-US/release/Windows_NT/update.xml this URL doesn't work.

Still running Mac OS 10.9.5. Firefox has asked multiple times to upgrade to Firefox verson 39. But each time I check to download it, it does, and then when I restart, as instructed, it has remained on 37.0.2. It does not ever go ahead and install the new version. ???? This is on a laptop without great excess memory, could this be the problem? (Also this last time, just before it requested to upgrade, I was in the middle of an action and all of the tabs closed, and did not allow me to reopen anything. I had to quit and restart, but lost what I was working on.
