As it says in the title, I can't seem to download anything in Firefox anymore, aside from photos apparently. Zips files, videos, and program files always fail without even attempting to download. The download arrow pops up and that's about it. Add-ons just say that there was an error downloading and nothing else, except try again. Refresh Firefox doesn't work and neither does safe mode. Clean installs work, but only during the initial opening of the browser. If you close it and open it back up, it goes back to failing again.

Where can I find offline installations for Firefox? Please don't say "https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/" like the previous 20 or so answers to this question. It simply doesn't work. All you get are Stub installers with no option to download only. I have gone as far as completely trying this and the only thing that I could achieve was to upgrade Firefox on the download computer. Why has this Full install thing been a never ending issue with Mozilla? Is it so hard to list these as well as the Installer version? Many people don't like installers.

I'm unable to launch Firefox at all, I've scanned for viruses, cleaned regeristry, reinstalled, restarted PC several times. Looked online for hours, nothing helped. Frankly I'm at a loss at this point.

Error message is: ""Windows cannot find 'C:\ Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" - I checked and the file is there, clicking on it directly bring up the same message because...fuck logic I guess? Anyway like I said I'm at a loss, any help would be immensely appreciated.

I am trying to resolve the issue of a very slow, to almost non-existant download of the firefox browser. Internet is fine and PC is fine. I know this as I have downloaded other programs with absolutely no issue. But when I try to download and install firefox it either runs extremely slow during the install which prompts me to kill it after 10 minutes and no promising results. Either that or it does not download at all. Any ideas?

Flash Player Plugin 16.0.0.235 won't uninstall from firefox at all ! I tried the download uninstaller and it says it successfully uninstalled it. But when I go to look in the plugin section in firefox it shows it's still there. and firefox had me updated it so now theres two version of flash player plugin ! you guys really need to redo firefox from scratch.. cause this browser really has loads of bugs and errors for small plugins like flash player to screw up from. and this happened more then once to me in the past few months. your people have firefox set to block a version of flash player and then we can't uninstall it ! cause your browser program has errors. instead of blocking the flash player bad version just have us update it and uninstall it . so there won't be any more uninstall errors. if this keeps up with firefox having all these problems I really can't wait till a newer browser comes along and boots firefox off the market for good. and I am glad that firefox is free, cause I really would of hated to spend money on something so crappy. and crashes that firefox does some times is pathetic ! and it freezes up too. and by the way I also tried to uninstall firefox in safe mode and re-install it after rebooting the pc. and every thing was back on firefox even my favorites and "YES" the Flash Player Plugin 16.0.0.235 which was supposed to been uninstalled already. you guys should have so when we do uninstall of firefox it uninstalled all folders and registry as well of firefox. so a fresh clean install of firefox can be done. I even deleted in the registry of Flash Player Plugin 16.0.0.235 ! but it still shows up in firefox plugin section.

cause of firefox's errors and stuff I downloaded cyberfox which works better then your new version.

its the only way I could be able to post my question on the board here, cause firefox version froze up on me cause your Flash Player Plugin 16.0.0.235 Error. so like I said if I was you firefox programers I would start the entire program from scratch ! and watch your coding errors too. cause thats were its all coming from.
