Hi, I have the latest adobe reader. When i check the firefox plugins, It says that it needs to be updated. But when installed , it closes as showing that the latest adobe reader is already in use and the only thing i could do is to exit this message with FINISH button. Now, if again checked, the firefox plugin shows that it is not updated. Some of the web page photos are not correctly captured. How to get rid of this problem. Is it a problem with FF or AR

An earlier auto-upgrade of 45.0.2 this month wouldn't run, just briefly blinked the icon, then nothing! Uninstalled 45.0.2 and loaded 43.0.1 which was the version available for Windows 32. Now another auto-update of 45.0.2 is ready, so can I remove it and stop auto-upgrades?

Yesterday I've got a report from one company about Firefox update being blocked by their firewall. Once it's on, the update fails. Turning it off fixes the update problem, but also open their network, which is not desired. I advised to whitelist domains mentioned in article https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Setting_up_an_update_server (aus2.mozilla.org and download.mozilla.org), but seems it did not help. Firefox update still failed with "Update failed" message. So what servers Firefox needs access to during the update process so they can whitelist them?

EDIT: Just to add, before whitelisting the mentioned domain, Firefox won't be able to even find the update. Now the update if found, but fails when downloading.

Running Firefox 63.0.3 (64-bit) on Windows 10 ver 1803, I click on "Restart to update Firefox" and get "Firefox is installing your updates and will start in a few moments." But when it does start, nothing has changed: I am still running 63.0.3 and it still says "Restart to update Firefox." I have been round this loop a half dozen times. What next?

Hi Folks, First of all I wish to say that Mozilla's Firefox and Thunderbird have been my Internet Communications apps for the past 8 years and that I will use no other apps because of your consistently excellent work on keeping up with both features and function! Lately I've been by the fact that plugins (namely Acrobat and Flash plugins) have not registered as having been installed! I ALWAYS restart Firefox after ANY plugin update installs, but this problem seems to be happening with the more recent updates after the most Recent updates to Firefox itself. Should I do a computer restart?? As I said this seems to be a very recent problem. And again, MANY thanks to everyone for 2 "don't-leave-home-without-it" apps!!!!

Using 68.0.2 in Debian 9.4 Stretch. Originally FF 68.0.2 was installed in my Downloads directory but I moved it to /opt and is still working fine. Since the release of version 69 it has been pestering me asking for an update, even that the automatic update option is checked on. Downloaded 69.0 and again moved to it to /opt. Renamed the 68.0.2 from firefox to firefox 68 and tried to run 69 but it will not respond. Any ideas on how to solve this issue? Thanks.

Hi, I've been having an issue for quite some versions now (two at least): autoupdate never finds newer versions. When I first noticed this issue, I also noticed auto updates were disables in the prefs. Re-activating them would bring them back off after I checked for updates (About Firefox).

So i went on and: - restarted with add-ons disables - refreshed Firefox - trashed active-update.xml and updates.xml

What's wrong?

I apologize if this is the wrong place to ask this, but I've recently been dealing with something weird with regard to the update feature in Nightly.

Yesterday, I decided to check for an update on Nightly, and it started downloading. Once finished, I was prompted to restart to let the update take affect.

After waiting for a minute, I noticed nothing opening up again. I opened up Task Manager (I'm on Windows 10 Pro) and saw that both Nightly and the Nightly update service were both in the Backgrounds Processes section.

After a bit of waiting, the update process vanished, but Nightly remained no matter how much time passed.

I had to end up killing/ending the process/task. I did this twice more and it wasn't until the third attempt when I realized I was already running the latest version of nightly. Yet, Nightly, for whatever reason still attempted to receive/install an update.

I'm sure there are already similar questions like this, but I may not have come across them.

It is worth mentioning that I have both Firefox 54.0 Release (32-bit) AND Nightly 56.0a1 release installed on my system.

I'm currently running two profiles: the default is stuck with just Firefox release, and I created a separate profile for nightly.

Annoyingly, Nightly installs and initially runs with the default profile in use. I find this extremely annoying and prone to give errors.

That aside, I followed a guide on the Stack Exchange that addressed how to get Ngihtly to run with a predefined profile.

I edited the shortcut properties (in start menu folder/directory) and added to the Target field a "-p profile_name".

This was done after initial installation and it's been working since then.

All of the sudden, it stopped working. Not sure why.

Clicking on Nightly now only opens the standard/stab;e Firefox application.

What I'm most upset about is that I actually uninstalled Nightly after noticing the weird update inconsistency, and later reinstalled it.

The issue persisted and I'm about to try again.

Why did Nightly think it needed to be updated in the first place?

I can only imagine that some kind of corruption occurred and now it's getting worse.

Another last testament:

I tried refreshing the profile for nightly, and it didn't do anything.

When I uninstalled Nightly the first time, a folder was created in my Desktop which related to an old profile.

Sine I was given no instructions as to what to with that, and noticed no performance conflict when running Nightly after reinstalling, I deleted the folder.

What bug am I suffering from?

We have an Add-On that will no longer work with FireFox once it updates version 60.2. It will heavily impact our stores ability to use certain functions/integration with our website until we get either a new add-on released or make a change to the site. We had planned on disabling updates for FireFox temporarily on each PC at each store but I am hoping for a workaround. I am curious if there is a list somewhere of the server IP’s/URLs that FireFox would use to update. This way I can just blacklist those IP’s for the time being until we get a new add-on released or an update to our website. This way they would not be able to download the latest update. It would prevent me from having to alter settings on each PC at each store (we have close to 70 locations and 4 computers at each). Is there such a list? And if so can someone point me there? Thanks!
