Hello, I have just received the usual message after installation of an update on my Windows computer. There you can read the following sentence : "Quel que soit votre système d’exploitation, il existe un navigateur mobile soutenu par une organisation sans but lucratif et plus performant que jamais à y installer." I should just want to know how that functions with a Windowsphone? Thank you in advance, Erling

I cannot suddenly download my bank statements I am getting this message within the bank website:

"We're sorry, there was an issue when trying to retrieve your documents." this has only happened recently there reply to the question is as follows: Thank you for your email.

We understand experiencing issues with the website can be frustrating. This error is normally received when there is a browser compatibility issue. If the current browser does not allow you to access the documents, we would suggest using one of our other supported browsers: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari or Chrome.

Also I am having problems getting into my messages an Error comes up around 3 times before I actually get into them.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated....thank you

What is causing the browser to revert back to previous version? The previous version was 85.02. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled v86.0. Eventually, the browser reverts back to the previous version. When I tried to open the browser, the following message appears:

You've launched an older version of Firefox Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for the installation of Firefox.

                                                                               Exit              Create New Profile

Read support article about importing username and password info direct from .CSV file. I see at the bottom of that article that if no such option presents (Import from file), I am to ensure that signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled is set to true. I don't see that operator within the listing of configuration options. I can create that operator and set it to true, but that doesn't make the 'import from file' option appear in the three dot drop down menu within the Logins and Passwords page. Has the title or location of the fileImport operator changed, been moved?

Dear all Maybe, someone is able to help me out here:

We're supporting several companies with the following setup: User's are working with an office computer. However, they are also able to work from home via VPN and RDP. Folder redirection is enabled and directs to a network drive.

Since Firefox usually only updates while the application is running, we regularly face the issue where the Firefox profile wasn't able to load on the office PC because it was opened with a more actual version (the one from the Remote Desktop server) earlier.

Is there a way to update Firefox without launching the application first? Preferably from command line so it could become part of the logon script? All I found which looks helpful is the section "Service Command Line Parameters" in https://wiki.mozilla.org/Windows_Service_Silent_Update. However, I wasn't able to get it working so far.

I did NOT enroll in any FF studies. Yet, moderator Cor-el said the app.normandy preferences will install new features and 'shield studies' anyways. I stopped downloading FF updates after v.84. I wanted to avoid the disastrous change to the print function that showed up on another computer. I spent hours trying to figure out what happened and how to get rid of of it. Nevertheless, Firefox installed this unwanted print 'update.' So my question is whether it is safe to turn off or delete all the app.normandy preferences in about:config ? Or do I only need to change the settings on a few? If so, which ones. What happens if I change these?

app.normandy.api_url https://normandy.cdn.mozilla.net/api/v1 app.normandy.dev_mode false app.normandy.enabled true app.normandy.first_run false app.normandy.last_seen_buildid app.normandy.logging.level 50 app.normandy.migrationsApplied 10 app.normandy.onsync_skew_sec 600 app.normandy.run_interval_seconds 21600 app.normandy.shieldLearnMoreUrl https://support.mozilla.org/1/firefox/%VERSION%/%OS%/%LOCALE%/shield app.normandy.startupRolloutPrefs.browser.partnerlink.useAttributionURL true app.normandy.startupRolloutPrefs.browser.toolbars.bookmarks.2h2020 true app.normandy.startupRolloutPrefs.browser.topsites.experiment.ebay-2020-1 true app.normandy.startupRolloutPrefs.browser.topsites.useRemoteSetting true app.normandy.startupRolloutPrefs.doh-rollout.enabled true app.normandy.startupRolloutPrefs.doh-rollout.profileCreationThreshold 1896163212345 app.normandy.startupRolloutPrefs.doh-rollout.provider-steering.enabled true app.normandy.startupRolloutPrefs.doh-rollout.provider-steering.provider-list [{ "name": "comcast", "canonicalName": "doh-discovery.xfinity.com", "uri": "https://doh.xfinity.com/dns-query" }] app.normandy.startupRolloutPrefs.network.preload true app.normandy.startupRolloutPrefs.print.tab_modal.enabled false app.normandy.user_id 9893538f-07be-4513-8265-9124f1f967ff

Hello,I have Windows XP 32 bit with service pack 3 and Firefox 52.9.1 ESR browser. Now that adobe flash player is history I can't play videos online that are not on youtube. I can still watch youtube videos.

Is there a HTML5 video player or something else I can install on this old system that will work or is that not possible? I know it's an old system but it still does the job.

Thanks.

If I try to run firefox from terminal I get: (Running in safe mode (firefox --safe-mode) makes no difference.)

I haven't made any config or extension changes since it stopped working, and not sure what could be causing this. I don't mind starting from scratch, just need Firefox back. :)

I got a bug, or a hack, or a virus that corrupted my FIREFOX so had to uninstall and re-install.

Have got most of it fixed except I can't get the BOOKMARK "BAR" to display [see pic attached].

If I select "Bookmark" on the top bar, it opens the bookmark window but I want it where it has been for over a decade, between HISTORY AND TOOLS.

I downloaded the current rel 86. My first FIREFOX copy was ~2004/2005 ver 1.0.
