I received a Firefox notice that an upgrade was available, so I clicked "not now" and triggered the update by Menu > Help > About. Firefox apparently downloaded its update, then asked me to restart Firefox. I did so and got a "ransomware" notice from my antivirus program, saying it fixed the problem (but not how). Trying to run Firefox repeats the notice. Does Firefox now have malware in it?

A Web search turns up nothing. I am posting this question from Google Chrome.

This morning FF advised me to update to a newer version. I did and got 78.0.1 (64-bit) for Windows 7. Later I was deleting a program - winpdfeditor - in the Windows control panel and, at completion, suddenly got a message that Firefox was updating (again), but this time with a big bold warning - as I recall - that this version was not synched with anything. This new Firefox opened. My regular version, the one I'd updated this morning -- let's call it FF-1 -- was also open. In the second version (FF-2) I immediately checked under Tools > Options > Logins and Passwords, and the passwords section was empty. I closed FF-2. FF-1 is still open and still has all my passwords. I checked my Mozilla > Firefox > Profiles folder and now have two profiles - one called jn******.default, where I can see all my regular FF files, including logins.json, and one called i6******.default-release, with all files created today and no logins.json. Windows control panel also tells me I have two FFs, but identifies them as v78.01 and v72.02, and says both were installed today. I just checked about:profiles and get this: "Another copy of Firefox has made changes to profiles. You must restart Firefox before making more changes." What to do now? Obviously, I want to save the one with the passwords and delete the other one. But, as this situation is new to me, I want to do it the right way.

Why is the 78.0.1 download for MacOS called "Firefox 78.0.1esr.dmg" and not "Firefox 78.0.1.dmg"?

I got the pop-up about FF 78.0.1 so went to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.0.1/releasenotes/ and clicked on "Download Firefox" (https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/… (читать ещё)

I got the pop-up about FF 78.0.1 so went to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.0.1/releasenotes/ and clicked on "Download Firefox" (https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/download/thanks/). The download dialogue (image attached) that appeared said that it wanted to download "Firefox 78.0.1esr.dmg". The "esr" in the filename surprised me, as I'm not on any ESR release train. Why is it named that and not "Firefox 78.0.1.dmg", similar to its predecessors?

I have an older PC that I have been using with Win 7 as its OS. It's still there on one of the three HDDs that's in the PC. I have since added a fourth drive, which is a WD Blue SSD which is 560 MB/s big, and has Windows 10 installed and running on it, when I start up this PC.

How do I go about replacing the Microsoft software with Firefox and Thunderbird? The Win 10 software is different than Win 7 so I don't know how to use very well. And the Win 10 instructions don't exactly match up with the Win 10 that is installed on my PC, so if some-body could list some of the steps that are more accurate than what MS has given, I would appreciate it.

I should have mentioned that the uneducated answer provided could not even be replied to. A good way for the uneducated robot to hide, you get one try and that’s it. Then as I said they moved on to something easy and that does not require any brain power. Mozilla might be around for a while longer, however if this is the way they want to treat clients they may not last too long.

I have just upgraded to Firefox 17 and found that Norton 360 "Login Assistant" (formally named Identity Safe) no longer works. It does not fill in the username and password fields. It worked very well and did all the right things when I was using Firefox 16. There is probably a quick fix but in the meantime I have had to revert to version 16. Looking forward to the problem being resolved.

Hello- I am new to Firefox. I have it set to update automatically. I noticed it was updating to the latest version today, so I stayed and watched. I had version 3.5.2 (I am pretty sure) but the latest version it just updated to is version 17. Is this right? I am used to version going in order but from version 3.5.2 to 17? did something go wrong?

I have tried to up-date firefox on my system which is a 32-bit but with no success any help would be appreciated.

It appears that it is downloading but when it is completed it does not update my old version. There is probably a step or two that i am not completing.

My 64-bit Windows 7 HP SP1 based notebook was under repair for the past couple of months. So, recently when I got it back, I upgraded Firefox manually to the latest version, i.e. 17. However, noticed that both Version 15 and 17 are listed in the Windows Programs list (Add/Remove Programs list). Can I remove / uninstall Version 15 and leave Version 17 alone, or do I need to remove both and reinstall Firefox 17 afresh ? Is this some sort of a bug in the Firefox installation process ?

For unknown reason Firefox 17.0.1 has stopped downloading pdf's. This was happening before upgrading to 17.0.1, and before upgrading to Mac OS 10.8.3 from 10.7.4. In order to get pdf's printed, I have to copy the links and download them on another browser, such as Safari. On the other hand, browsing with Safari alone won't work because it messes up the various websites' formats, and becomes unreadable. Firefox will also have this problem occasionally, but usually not.

    To overcome the problems I down loaded Chrome and Camino, but they only allow new pages as tabs, instead of fresh windows, so they have just added to the frustration! Since I never had these types of problems before, I can't figure out if it is the browsers, or my OS, but I suspect the latter. Have you had similar reports, and if so, where you able to offer assistance?  Thank you.

I am running Windows 7 64-bit OS, and I currently have version 12 of Firefox installed (updated in May). I am building an OS vs Browser compatibility matrix, so I have been doing a bit of 'Googling' today to see what versions of Firefox are currently being supported. When I opened Firefox to see if I was running the latest version, I received a prompt to update to 14.0.1, yet the latest version is 17. This is causing me some confusion. Also, some websites are suggesting the Firefox 64-bit is not supported in WIndows and others are saying that it is in deed supported. Could someone please either confirm or deny this?
