Firefox notifies that there is an update available when on the latest version

I am using Firefox 50.0 on OSX El Capitan. I was experiencing the same issue on 49, so I upgraded to 50 beta to see if it would help, but it does not. Every time that I start Firefox, I get a notification to update to the latest version, even though I am on the latest version. If I select "Restart Firefox" from the notification, Firefox restarts and shows the notification again. When I choose "Restart Later" I can browse normally.

I was trying to get help on this thread started by someone else (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1141443), but no solution was found.

I do have a clue that may help. I use 2 user accounts on OSX, one for work and one for home. I'll refer to these as accounts A and B. OSX account B was the first to show the problem, running Firefox 49. I followed instructions here (http://osxdaily.com/2014/07/31/manual-complete-app-removal-mac-os-x-terminal/) to use mdfind to remove firefox files, but that did not seem to help. Finally, with account B, I upgraded to Firefox 50 and stopped getting the notifications. However, now I get the notification in account A. In account A, Firefox reports as version 50.0, but still asks to update. I imagine that there is something OSX account specific causing problems, but I don't know what that might be. Any help is appreciated.

locking as a duplicate of /questions/1152512

Hello, I have a problem: when I watch videos there are horizontal lines that appear on the black sidebars of the video and they flicker a lot. They only appear on full screen mode and when the video is not paused. They have the same colour as the pixel that is ajecant to the sidebar at that moment. I have tried multiple websites, they all have this problem.

Thank you for your help.

If Firefox could make their browser interface a little more professional -- hey maybe people would want to use it. Hint: GET RID OF THE PAGE THAT SAYS - WELL THIS IS EMBARRASSING! Your software design is embarrassing - don't you know what a professional web page is supposed to look like? - your graphics also need work; they're kind of amateurish.

locking as a duplicate of /questions/1152317

In my experience, the browser opens and plays the audio files on another tab instead of directly downloading. For a long time now, I've put up with this by right clicking and selecting "save audio as..." OR opening the page info and downloading the file from the list of medias; but there are some sites that doesn't allow this (like hive.co right now). Selecting "save ausio as..." again defaults to an .htm file, and selecting "all files" and downloading it as "file.mp3" only yields an unplayable file. As I've observed this problem occurs where the url doesn't end with the file format e.g. "site.com/file.mp3/lkjdflsjdflks" instead of "site.com/file.mp3". And no, removing that extra lkjdflsjdflks doesn't do anything.

There are similar problems posted here in the forums but all the solutions given didn't solve the problem. I've already set media.directshow.enabled, went to Applications and set all mp3 format sound files to "save file". Even restarted my pc.

I installed chrome and christ, the file downloaded with a single click (as it should always have been). There's got to be fix for this, I'm not switching to chrome as I've settle with firefox for a long time now, mind you. Also Third party addons is a big no.

About "Be Nice" .. not so nice below, BUT I AM SIMPLY FED UP WITH FIREFOX SCREWUPS ... YES, SWITCHING TO GOOGLE CHROME, BUT I NEED THIS FIXED TO GET MY DATA BACK AND EXPORT :

Once again ... Firefox has destroyed my bookmarks, add-ons etc. when I "updated" Firefox ... Macbook Pro OS X

in the past, I have cumulatively taken hours to fix this -- on 4-5 occasions of the SAME PROBLEM (read: unfixed by Mozilla/Firefox)

a) why cant Firefox get their stuff together? .. WHY DOESN'T MOZILLA/FIREFOX FIX THIS !!!!


b) do they think my time is free? how can they, getting paid for their software development, expect me to lose money away from my business every time I "upgrade" ... so presumptious, so offensive, so oblivious to its "clients"

c) I don't know of any ... any ... any .... any software developer that requires a user to fix it's software -- again sometimes taking hours, including trying to find Help like this Mozillla user "support" input -- after an "upgrade" ... simply unbelieveable, simply UNACCEPTABLE ... TO YOU FIREFOX PEOPLE OR ITS REPS ... WILL YOU PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE AND GET WITH THE 21ST CENTURY? ....

d) WHERE IS THE “SUPPORT"? .. where is the IN PERSON support that is going to fix my computer after screwing up my long input data gathering with their so-called "upgrade" ???? Two things are for sure: 1) it's gonna get fixed and 2) I'm certainly not going to spend any more of my own time and lose money from my business to fix Firefox's programming screwups. DON’T KNOW OF ANY … ANY … ANY … ANY company that does not have IN-PERSON SUPPORT … software and its functions are complex .. they need to be supported through interpersonal interaction … every other company in the world knows this … why not Mozilla???? I just don’t get it.

e) For past and present, even this "help" note, where do I invoice Mozilla for my time lost? ... where headquarters? .. accounts payable?/ I assume one of the non-Mozilla, non-person reps knows the answer to this ... surely they don't expect me to lose money by way of their "upgraded" product.

f) As one of you reps sugggested last time this happened : "well you chose Firefox, ... if u don't like problems, go use another browser" ... gee, that's good customer support ... our product sucks so use another -- geez.

g) Indeed I now intend to use another, but I will first be satisfied by Mozilla/Firefox's restoration of my computer, cumulative time lost and literal restoration of data exactly as was before the "update", and the payment by Mozilla for all my time in trying to remediate this and if any data lost, the historical time used to cumulate and enter such data.

If anyone out there in the GREAT MOZILLA/FIREFOX ABYSS knows anything about their products and their continuing failures, please respond to my questions above.

I expect someone at Mozilla or a rep thereof to, for once, BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR FAULTY PRODUCTS AND CUMULATIVE STRESS BURDEN AND MONEY LOST BY CUSTOMERS.

I AM LOSING MONEY AS I SPEAK, AS I DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO MY BOOKMARKS WHICH I NEED AT-THE-READY WHEN WORKING ... SO … SOMEBODY, SOMEWHERE, FIX THIS NOW!! _________ Again, not so nice, but perhaps a reader can understand my ongoing frustrations. NOTHING PERSONAL TO ANY INDIVIDUAL PERSON. I AM ADDRESSING ORGANIZATIONAL ISSUES.

Over the last week or so my Firefox seems to be dying about once per day. It just slows to a crawl, and then stops responding entirely and I have to use task manager to kill it. When I look in task manager it's taking up as much as 30% of my system resources, despite only having 4 tabs open at any given time. I've tried both refreshing and uninstalling Firefox, and neither has solved the problem. When I looked at the health report, I noticed something that's confusing me, namely the amount of add-ons and extensions it claims I have running. It claims that there are 7 extensions running, but there are only 3 listed on my add-ons manager, all of which I installed manually, which is making me wonder if there are 4 somehow hidden extensions that are causing me problems, and don't go away when I remove or refresh Firefox. Is there any way that I could figure out what these might be or get someone from Mozilla to take a look and see if they can figure out what's going on?

So I have looked this up several times and not found an answer anywhere. And I've just been dealing with the issue, but there has to be a way to turn off this feature, and I want to know where it is.

The situation is this; Let's say I am doing an google search for images. I find an image I like and I click on it. A box opens up giving me 3 options; "Visit Page", "View Image", and "Share". What I would like to do it "View Image" so I click the button and it opens in a new tab. What I would like it to do is open in the same tab. Not open a new one. Does anyone have a solution for this?

Locking duplicate thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/1149746]

I went to use FireFTP and discovered it had been disabled sometime after a recent Firefox update. I'm using Firefox 50.0.2 on a Mac with OS X 10.11.6. I checked one of my other Macs and it exhibits the same issue with FireFTP disabled.

Is there a new version of FireFTP that is compatible? I haven't found it. Or is there another way to restore FireFTP?

Thanks.

I am trying to visit the Wiley CPA website but I get the error message saying "Your connection is not secure". So I tried to look into the certificate by typing in the location field of the window type or paste the URL of the website with the https:// protocol prefix (https://wileycpa.com).

However, I just wanted to bypass the error message but I forgot to delete the https:// protocol prefix, and then when I clicked on the add exception, it now just completely messed it up, because of having the https:// protocol prefix before the websites address and now I get this message.

Could someone please help me with this problem I would greatly appreciated it, Thank You.
