Hi, Firefox desktop for win 10: Firefox works with this one exception... I downloaded two "self extracting" files from Nikon. When I double click on either or any file of this type using firefox, I get "some installation files are corrupt, please re-download" If I use Microsoft edge, the same files work, provided I select "unblock" in the files properties tab. (yes I do this for ff files too)

This did not happen months ago and I'm sure this is because Microsfot has changed something, which needs all browsers to adapt to. Thx

Hi,

I have reinstalled my Debian, keeping of course my `/home`. New Firefox version is `68.12.0esr`. A new profile has been created, but I need the old one which I can set as default in the profile manager at the url `about:profiles`, but Firefox tells me "Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history.....". So, it seems I need to install the same version of Firefox I had before, but I don't know which one it was, and I would like to avoid to make many trials.

Is there a mean to know which Firefox version is associated to a given profile?

There is no indication of progress while a webpage is downloading. I'm looking for something like the rotating hour glass, or a rotating circle of dots. Only when the process is done do we get the page's icon on the tab. As it is, I never know if my request to open a webpage is working or if the computer has locked up. It must have changed with the latest update because, although I can't remember exactly how Firefox previously indicated loading in progress, I instantly noticed the LACK of it as soon as I booted up the newest version.

Thank you.

Free YouTube to MP3 Converter starts Microsoft Edge although Firefox is defined as Browser. Only an Uninstall of Microsoft Edge ends that behaviour. But after next update Edge is again installed and again Edge is started, what I don't want. Have you the possibility to avoid that? I don't know, where that behaviour can be ended.

Just a suggestion on getting update content information.

I do not enable automatic updates in order to maintain personal update control and to generally wait a few days to allow any bugs in the update to shake out [e.g 81.0.2 to fix the Twitter bug in 81.0.1 -- No biggie, small bugs can crop-up in any update in spite of Mozilla's commendable quality control]. When manually checking Firefox "About" to look at update status, the pop-up shows the current installed version, with a link to "What's new?" [Great idea, thanks]. Unfortunately, there is not a "What's new?" link beside the box to download a new update, thus one must do an on-line search for the related Release Note to determine the urgency/relevancy of doing the update.

Adding an additional "What's new?" would be an appreciated change -- Thanks and be well.

Is there a pocket-free build of firefox available for download? Before you say, you can just disable it, I already have. In addition to that I've blocked the update/api url as well. I want it removed completely, I strong feel mozilla should make it opt-in or provide a pocket free build.

I was thinking perhaps there is a regulatory constraint on of the builds here that I could install, then change back to english?

Any help would be appreciated.
