I have an iMac that is a decade old. Running macOS High Sierra version 10.13.6 That is as updated as I can get on this processor.

I had a normal "there is a newer version of Firefox available" update alert, so relaunched Firefox to update. So on Monday 4th April NZ time i got the update. As usual I got the message [in a dialogue box]: Close Firefox. A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time.

So far, normal. I closed Firefox, then relaunched. Same message. Did a logoff on my computer - same thing Did a full shutdown, login - same message. I got a bit radical - I dumped Firefox, deleted Trash. New installation (version 99.0.1) Same message;Close "Firefox. A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time."

Currently using (newly installed) Edge for Mac, until this problem can be sorted; I hope it is brief, I have used Firefox for most of the years I have had a computer.

Firefox failed to update after compatibility.ini modification

Hi!

When Firefox 96.0 rolled out on my machine, I was surprised to see my old Firefox Quantum theme default to dark. I did not enjoy this new behavior, so I tried to downgrade to 95.0.2. After installing it, Firefox told me it couldn't load the user profile, as it was used on a newer version of Firefox.

I have no idea where exactly I read this, but some website contained an instruction to erase compatibility.ini and that would allow me to use the profile on older versions. Tried that and it actually worked. I did notice that, when Firefox tried to update, it would say it failed. I was hoping that, once I find a solution to the forced dark mode and I update Firefox, the problem would go away.

Fast forward a few weeks, I found AutoConfig and browser.theme.toolbar-theme option in about:config. So I updated Firefox manually and applied AutoConfig and my original problem was gone.

Fast forward more weeks, there is another update for Firefox. And Firefox was still unable to automatically update. So I tried reconstructing compatibility.ini, which I did fully. But Firefox still won't update.

At this point, it's been like 3 months with a crippled user profile and I must say I'm tired of updating Firefox manually.

Is there any way I can fix this profile? If not, what exactly should I copy over so all my preferences, cookies, addons and themes get carried over to a new one?

We just bought a new HP computer with Windows 11 and I'm trying to install Firefox. I d/l the file from the Mozilla website, clicked on the file that d/l and the installation begins. The installation progresses until the bar indicates it's over 1/2 way done. Then all of a sudden the screen changes to show a blank tab name and the file area says something about a Google search. What am I supposed to do with this page since I don't know what I'm supposed to search for. I don't see a way to get back to the installation page. I just want to install Firefox so why all this runaround without an installation?

I had two Firefox windows open, one private and one not, and a lot of tabs open on both, and while I was browsing the internet on the non-private tab, suddenly both of them close. I reopen Firefox (or it reopens itself, I don't quite remember) and it shows me a message telling me about how I can save articles on pocket to read them later instead of keeping lots of tabs open. I restore my session, and most (but, bizarrely, not all) of my tabs come back, but then, I try to log into gmail, and I never get past the stage where it asks me my email adress, I keep re-entering my email and clicking on the next button and it just loads the same page again, and when I try to log into crunchyroll it brings me to a page that just keeps loading and stays black without ever being truly loaded, and when I try to log into twitter everything stays black too except with a twitter logo in the center. I can still go to some other sites on Firefox, and I can still go to twitter, gmail, youtube and crunchyroll on Google Chrome, but twitter, gmail, YouTube and Crunchyroll don't seem to work on FireFox and I don't understand why!

Downloaded the latest version of firefox. When it was opened and it went through the verification process then to move firefox folder into applications for use we received a notice where the firefox logo had a circle with a line through it (indicating to us that is would not function) then an arrow pointing to the application folder. The firefox version downloaded and opened Firefox 91.8 Oesr.dmg

Any suggestions as to what safe version I could use on a mac mini late2012 operating OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 Which I am told is the latest version that can be used on this machine with the following characteristics: processor 2.3 GHzIntel Corei7 memory 4GB 1600 MHz DDR3 Start up disk el capitan 10.11.4 this is strange since 4 lines above it states OS X El Capitan Version 10.11.6 graphics Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536MB

Your suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks

Hello,

after installing 98.01 recently a tab was opened that informed about a feature for Firefox installations on smartphones: the site said that it is possible to continue my work where I stopped before, including open tabs, bookmarks etc.

I don't have a smartphone - I only use firefox on my notebook. Since I'm considering to buy a new notebook in the upcoming weeks I ask myself how it is possible to migrate my current firefox installastion to a new notebook. Especially I'd like to have all my open tabs, bookmarks and cookies back after having installed firefox on the new notebook.

How can I do this? GreetZ and thanks a lot in advance!

Yesterday when I installed the 96.0 update it has forced my background color into a dark grey and ignores the background color setting. I would like to know if there is a setting, add on or update that can return this to normal. The theme I am using has not been updated in 2 years so I am fairly sure the update has caused this.
