Hi,

When I try download and install mozilla firefox it gives a prompt "This version of Firefox requires Microsoft Windows 7 x64 or newer". But the fact is that I'm installing it on a Win 7 64-bit environment and the firefox installer file is also 64-bit. I have verified the minimum system requirements for firefox installation and it meets the criteria. But still it doesn't allow me to install and gives the said prompt.

Tried various install files and no luck. When I try download it is the stub installer file that is available for latest versions. Refer the screenshot of the error.

I have a MacBookPro with OS 10.13.6. In System Preferences/Notifications I have unchecked everything regarding Firefox banners/alerts, etc. But I still get a 2" x 3" pop-up in the upper right-hand corner of my screen, with "A new Firefox update is available." I don't want this reminder--I will check for update at my convenience. This is a real nuisance--how do I stop it?

Firefox 63.0.3 Windows 7 Home Premium

When I opened Firefox this morning, it stated that there was a new version available so I clicked the box.

The browser closed, it went through the motions, and reopened the browser.

I checked the version and it still showed 63.0.3, with the option to update, so I rebooted the computer, reopened the browser, and it still shows 63.0.3 with the option to update.

I am sure that others have already posted about this but what is the fix?

Hi, I can’t install the latest Firefox update (63.0.3). For some reason, every time I launch the bowser it looks as though the update is installing, but when I check manually, it’s still not updated and the process repeats itself.

If it helps, I’m using Windows 10. (I’ve already tried clearing my cache.)

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?

By choosing to champion Privacy, and some Security features, Firefox has ticked off those corporations who believe my online activities should create an additional revenue stream for them by providing my online browsing to sell. AKA, many companies want to emulate Google, the information seller,.

Apparently Firefox responds to this by constantly trying to do Updates that are going to fail, which means my use of the Firefox Browser is constantly hanging, sticky and slowed.

Firefox developers need to understand the sequence of events, and not allow users of Firefox to be punished by a slow Firefox, because of Update failures.

This goes back to my other thing. If I log into the basic Firefox website, (They do not block the Firefox opening page, just the download link will not work) I expect to see by the download link the version of the latest Firefox, and its release date, as that is how I orientate how much difficulty I need to go through to get my Firefox updates.

If Firefox is going to support Privacy, Firefox should to expect to be hated, and blocked.

My computer is an Alienware 15 R2, I7, 16 GB RAM. Windows 10 Pro, which is fully updated, as McDS does not block M$ updates. (Microsoft also a company that also appears to have gone over to the dark side, and wants to spy on everything I do.

On this computer I'm using, every single time there's a new firefox update, it always seems to fail the auto installation process for the update and it prompts me to download a fresh copy of firefox. This bothers me a lot, because I can't just let it do it all for me for some reason and have it nice and updated the next time I want to use the browser. I always need to it manually. I don't need to do this on my other computer either, which bothers me even more, because I have no problems with firefox updates on my laptop, but on my main PC it'll keep going with these problems. This has been going on for quite a while and I don't know how to fix this.

I have mozilla set to notify me when an update is ready but I just watched it update with no input from me.

example: [no input] Double click on the Firefox icon on the desktop and it says wait while we install the latest update. Then the little updater box with the progress bar opens showing update in progress. I DID NOT OK AN UPDATE!

How can I rely on software that does not follow settings? I am using Win 10 and the most current {NOW) firefox thanks to it updating without my permission. This is also why I now use Chrome as my default browser.

Does the automatic update to Version 63.0 on a computer running Windows 10 ask for a password?

My mother had this update and it asked her for a password. But I've never seen a Firefox update do that. I'm worried that she got hacked.

Hello :-),

someone reported to me that they were prompted to update Firefox inside Firefox (somewhere in the top right corner), but they said they weren't redirected anywhere (like a page with a blue background for example). They also say that it wasn't a full width bar and that there was no heart icon.

When clicking on that 1 or more windows opened, and they put in the admin credentials (the user doesn't have admin privileges).

Then after what followed the start menu link to Firefox was broken, and in the list of installed programs there was only an x86 version of Firefox listed, but without an icon. It claims to have been there for at least 15 days though. There is also a "Mozilla Firefox" folder in "Programs (x86). This is 64bit Windows 10 though and to my knowledge I installed 64bit Firefox (using the standard download button), which I would expect to be in the "Programs" folder (and so it is on other machines).

When trying to uninstall Firefox via the list of installed programs, after entering the admin credentials nothing happened.

When downloading a fresh installer and trying to install Firefox with that, when entering the admin credentials and clicking "yes" a window with a typo in it pops up saying that Firefox already had been installed and asking if it should be reinstalled. When clicking "no" the same window pops up. So after clicking no, without having entered any admin credentials (assuming that it might not work), I confirmed that I wanted to reinstall Firefox in that window, and the installer actually finished.

After that Firefox opened on its own. The start menu link is still broken, Firefox is still only in "Programs (x68)", but at least in the list of installed programs it's listed as x64 now, with an icon.

When typing "Firefox" in the search and examining the location of that program, it says it's in AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe. I currently only have a Developer Edition to compare it to but abstracting from that I would expect it to be in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe.

What is going on?

I don't recall ever being prompted to update Firefox inside Firefox. Of course though since the user doesn't have admin privileges that might be interfering with the normal process. I've experienced updates failing due to a lack of admin privileges before though on other computers, and I had to start Firefox as admin and search for updates via the "Help -> About" menu to get them to install.

Is the behaviour described above legitimate? Aside from all that being kinda weird everything seems to be working now (with Firefox running from AppData\Local though). We don't wanna take any risks.

Thanks!

Firefox hangs when I open a new tab or new webpage. It's really annoying!

Everytime I do the automatic updates this shit happens. I used to go to one of the articles where it gave me instructions on how to reset my preferences, but that thread has since been modified, it now says to delete my pref.js, but that doesn't fix the issue anymore.

So i'm resorting to actually making a god damn account and asking why this shit keeps happening. I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed aswell, but it saved some of my data which I kinda need (bookmarks). That doesn't help.

I know that resetting my preferences back to default every update used to fix it, but I forget how now. Thanks...

Can someone just tell me how to fix it so I can update without having to do all this shit again.

I have only one extension and that is adblockerplus. Not likely the cause as it does this aswell without.

Has bookmark file compression changed in Firefox quantum?

In Linux Mint 18.1, Firefox 62.0.2_64, I installed (extracted) Fx to /opt, in its own new directory (/opt/firefox). Earlier, I created a new profile using profile manager, for an earlier Quantum version Fx 60.x esr..

Then copied several of MOST recent days of bookmark backups (.jsonlz4 files) from the PRE-Quantum profile into the new Quantum profile above, that has only been used with Fx Quantum versions. Note: Some of the jsonlz4 files were copy & pasted from old legacy to new quantum profile; after that, Quantum backups were automatically created (so should be compressed?).

Are there easier ways than I know about, to quickly tell if 2 bookmarks files contain *approximately* the same number of non-corrupted bookmarks - in a human readable way, or file comparison (in Linux) that creates a list of elements found only in one file?

Is there a way (say, convert to a spreadsheet or CSV, etc, to find all differences in specific column, or something  similar?

I'm not so sure something didn't go wrong, moving bookmarks from a Legacy profile to Quantum profile.

The places.sqlite files are IDENTICAL size in both the old legacy profile vs. new Quantum profile. That's a little odd, as exporting to html - the most recent bookmark files of legacy & quantum profiles and comparing them, the legacy bookmarks.html files have a LOT more lines (~ 3000 more lines- "line numbers", in text a editor ). Graphics / icons count as one line, so larger icons or higher resolution doesn't explain a much larger # of LINES in the legacy html file . Maybe that's if bookmarks in places.sqlite don't contain descriptions - ever.

The automatically backed up Legacy bookmarks*.jsonlz4 are considerably larger than the equivalent Quantum automatic backups. The files I'm comparing should have nearly the same bookmarks. No significant additions or deletions of bookmarks were made to either Legacy or Quantum bookmarks, so that's probably not the size difference.

Mozilla said? they wouldn't SHOW bookmark descriptions starting in Fx 62 (that's now), BUT WOULDN'T REMOVE the descriptions DATA from bookmark files until a LATER Fx version, so Ghacks.net says.

Comparing the exported bookmarks from Legacy & Quanum profiles, seems clear the Quantum HTML files do not contain any descriptions. Quantum bookmarks*.jsonlz4 files are ~ *35% smaller than Legacy files (that should contain the same set of bookmarks.

I'd guess that either Mozilla removed descriptions sooner than promised, or moving Legacy bookmark files to Quantum profiles removes descriptions, intended or not.

I absolutely *must* use an older version of FF, and regardless of how many times I install 52.9.0 and click off the auto update feature, it auto updates! Seriously annoying. If you turn off the auto update, it should do just that. I have tried every troubleshooting trick in the book, yet this continues to be a hassle.

Why firefox force updates itself without the consent of the user from version 42 to 62. It has been a long time between 42 and 62. Yet, firefox is so clumsy not to ask the user of updates. A user cannot keep track of his changes for 2.5 years. In this case firefox should have the courtesy to ask the customer to ins tall updates but it does not. Slyness. Including google.
