I want to transfer a Firefox profile from my old computer to a new computer. The online info has been distinctly unhelpful. I copied the profile from my old computer put it in the Profiles folder on my new computer but FIREFOX does not notice it. What is the problem?

i wish there was a "Comments" section on https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/mac/ so i could tell people "NEVER use this!!"

i tried last week, downloaded and installed. The installation process, after unpacking the download, tried to install a "helper application". Popped up a dialog box asking for an admin userid+passwd. (even though i was obviously already running as an admin user... because i was in the middle of doing the install.) This was not an iOS dialog box from Apple, and it didn't have an option for scanning my fingerprint; this was something the "helper app" was doing on its own. Well i gave it my userid+password, and it went on to say the installation failed, and bombed out with no Firefox installed on my machine. Now, for all i know, my credentials are out there, God only knows where. So i had to go change my passwd on all of my machines.  :(

Windows 10 - Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon This fall after an update attempt, Firefox started trying to update every time it was started. Deleted Update files in Program Data. FF would restart normally one time. Update data files were always replaced and the update on every startup continued - over and over and over. Tried refreshing FF- same thing. Uninstalled FF this AM and tried to reinstall when I get the following error:

XULRunner Error: Platform version "94.0.2" is not compatible with minVersion >= 94.0.1 maxVersion <= 94.0.1

No FF - HELP!

I naively tried to update my Firefox software, but then when I tried to open it, I got a message saying my system is too old. I have OS X El Capitan Version 10.11.6. I gather you can download an older version of Firefox, but the directory is rather confusing, I don't know which option I need. Any help would be gratefully received, thank you!

Firefox has just done an automatic update, but has installed 91.3.2(32bit) on my 64bit Windows 10.

I was wondering why it decided on 32 bit? Should I upgrade to 64bit and how would I do that?

It seems like the Language Packs aren't working in the Store Version. I switched from the normal App to the Store Version and since then I can't use another Language Pack, even if they are installed and activated as Addons. The only language correction I can use is the default US-English.

Hello. Before reinstalling windows i clicked sync on my firefox browser and closed it some moments after. After reinstalling windows i connected my account but my saved bookmarks, settings and passwords are gone. This is very annoying and it was the main reason i quit firefox (because it happened before). I have a backup on another drive but i can't boot into that drive and i tried with places.sqlite , key4.db , logins.json but i still can't get my settings. What can i do? I tried multiple sync and i even tried starting from that backup but all was for nothing because i don't have my settings anymore.

Few days ago, I was going to update my browser to 94.0.1 when I decided to check first "what's new".

To my shock and horror, I read: "On Windows, there will now be fewer interruptions because Firefox won’t prompt you for updates. Instead, a background agent will download and install updates even if Firefox is closed".

Seriously?... this is not an "improvement". This is just a nice way to say "we are taking over the control of Firefox updates and remove all user choice in this regard".

What is the rationale for this change?

I don't allow any programs to download and install to my PC without my knowledge and permission (including Windows Updates and even Wordpress and plugin updates on my website). I decide if and when anything gets updated to avoid crashes and other computer issues, as well as to prevent installation of something I simply don't want. This includes browser updates.

Secondly, I finally managed to reduce the space between bookmark lines in menus with a workaround in the about: settings after months of struggling with the settings created for iphone users which are unworkable on my PC (the only device I ever use the browser on).

Could someone in the know confirm please that (1) this workaround will continue to work in 94.0.1 (as the release notes are suspiciously silent on this) and (2) that this option will be permanently reinstated in the browser settings with the next update.

I am not updating my browser until I get more information about the issues I have raised, using Chrome in the meantime and...indefinitely.

thanks

I'm finally taking the plunge and setting up a new Lenovo desktop (going from windows 7 to 10). Am nervous about many things with this transfer but one of them being login , passwords for many places saved here on my firefox browser. So when I start up the new computer and add Firefox as my default browser again will my saved passwords be carried over from the old system?

I am helping somebody troubleshoot some issues with a new PC and they are using Firefox browser. They have some other PCs with Firefox as well, all running Windows 10 21H1 and up-to-date versions of Firefox. When they download files, the dialog asking to open or save is missing the option to "do this automatically for files like this from now on". It is present and works on the other PCs but not the new one. It doesn't matter what the file type is or where it comes from. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Great news about Firefox being added to the Microsoft Store. It seems to me that method of keeping Firefox up-to-date might be more effective than the traditional Mozilla background service. However, I use the Beta channel. Is there any chance that channel will be added to MS Store? Regardless of the version I assume that you have to completely uninstall the conventional Firefox install and lose all your about:config and other settings (anything not included in Sync).
