I am looking for the exact site we need to access to perform auto updates to Firefox DE on Windows 10 64-bit v. 1909. We have numerous security precautions in place and we currently can't access the auto updates area. Our security does not allow us to open the entire downloads area, so we are looking for the exact URL that is required for auto updates to function. We are also wondering if it is possible to have the auto updates point to a local server. This would allow us to bypass giving the full access to the website URL and just point customers locally within our own environment.

Thanks.

I had to get a new hard drive on my laptop, so I'm sure you can imagine how stressed I already am.

Plus I'm in Spain, and the computer guy who fitted the new hard drive has set my computer language to Spanish, which so far I'm unable to change!

Anyway... I'm hoping someone can help me reinstall my firefox settings and tabs etc.

I did this once before and recalled it being very easy, however I've just followed the instructions and I'm not getting anywhere.

I've got a windows tablet, where the original firefox settings were copied to years ago. It's all up to date.

Since my hard drive on my laptop was trashed, and I have a new one fitted, I'm hoping I can now copy all of the firefox settings from my tablet, onto the reborn laptop.

I've typed in %appdata%\Mozilla\firefox\profiles\ and 2 files are listed.

pjdchlcd.default-release

And

xiwodwfv.default-1561288394972

The instructions tell me to right click, and copy,however on my tablet I have no mouse, so can't right click. (I'm not great using the tablet becauseit has no mouse, and as such, have barely used it)

So here I'm already stuck!

I had the option to copy full path, but could not paste anything to the usb when I did that.

Any help at this time would be much appreciated!

I deleted every Firefox and Mozilla file and folder I could find on my Mac. This was a scorched-Earth deletion (or so I thought). The Firefox application, my profile folder, any user Library files I could find, even caches - I deleted everything. The hope was I could reinstall a pristine version of Firefox (Firefox has been going zombie on me since May). I installed the latest download, signed into my Firefox account - and suddenly, it knew all my previous-used passwords and bookmarks. I thought these were stored in your Profiles folder (and not in the cloud somewhere) -- which I had deleted? How did Firefox find them if they were no longer on my Mac?

hi, i am using Firefox 78.5.0esr (32-bit) on my Raspberry Pi 4 (with 4GB). since the December 2020 update, Raspberry Pi OS is using PulseAudio as top overlay for ALSA, and Firefox 78.5.0esr does not play audio for some videos anymore.

the maintainers of Raspberry Pi OS told me that it is not an issue of them, it must be an issue of Firefox. they told, it is maybe an issue related to bug #1422073: no audio unless pulseaudio is already running but none of the suggestions there helped me.

here a link to a video that does not play audio in firefox, but play audio in chromium browser. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Wrc4fHSCpw

i, tried to clean cache, reset preferences, removed add-ons, made a new clean installation on a new clean system, but nothing helped. all the time the same behavior - some videos does not play with audio in firefox, others do.

Raspberry Pi OS is an 32-bit opperating system for Raspberry Pi that has an ARM cpu, for those who don't know, what i am talking from. https://www.raspberrypi.org https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=293746

One year ago I switched from Thunderbird to Outlook (I was forced to do it by the IT-department at my work office). When I migrated I took a backup of all my e-mails from 2009 to 2019 by putting them in a map in Explorer - they are saved as .elm-files. Today I would like to import my elm-files to Outlook, which is easy (copy and paste). The problem is that Outlook doesn´t know how to sort my elm-files according to their original date. The original date is written in each of my elm-files, but Outlook dates them according to the day when I imported them to Outlook, which means that I can´t see my Thunderbird mails in Outlook in chronological order. Anybody who knows a good solution to this? I have Windows 10.

So I tried to download the latest on my TV (I've never done this before) and it keeps saying Your download was interrupted. But all is not lost.

Firefox won't stay downloaded to my computer. I am having to download it multiple times, especially if my computer has updates.

On a separate note, when it does actually stay on my computer over night, it never keeps me signed in to my Firefox account. I have to log in to it daily to have my bookmarks and passwords.

Also, it never remembers the theme I have picked for it. I would love some advice on how to fix this.

I've read through a ton of articles, and I can't seem to find a fix.

YouTube and YouTube TV will frequently not open in Firefox but will usually open with Chrome. I have tried the Firefox refresh feature and have even reinstalled Firefox 83.0. I have also tried safe mode but none of these have solved the problem. This problem started around December 1, 2020 and it worked fine before that. I have a Dell Inspiron 15 with Windows 10.

Thanks.
