On another user's account, cannot go back to earlier FF version, profile files missing. Cannot start _any_ revision, old or current (using OSX Sierra on that user & different FF versions - the shared data you see her is NOT the same ) details here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1356226

I don't see the profiles.ini and installs.ini files within the Profiles folder. I see the general format from looking at good ones in my own Profile.

Don't understand why some are "locked."

How do I re-create them using the existing Profile names, and how do I denote which to startup using (the default folder?) Can't find any Help files to explain.

This is driving me mad, we are using the same physical computer because mine broke, so I start it up off an external drive containing my drive, then I have to shut down & restart on the internal drive to work on it, but then I don't have access to my saved files or to post on the forum.

I'd like to update my mac's firefox, but not to the latest version. I know about the directory of releases, but I can't seem to find advice on what to do once I download the file. I don't want to create a separate profile, or risk messing up the profile/settings I have currently. So, any thoughts? Thank you in advance for the help.

I didn't used to receive this,but I keep getting the Keep getting "firefox can't update to the latest version" message on a pretty regular basis. I have downloaded and installed the latest copy a few times, but then I still get this message.I haven't tried uninstalling the browser in control panel, but I thought I'd check this first. Current version: 82.0.2 This is happening on my work machine (Microsoft Surface) running Windows 10.

Apologies for asking this here, but I've done the Google and can't find an answer.

Background: I keep 2-3 Firefox versions and profiles on my computer. The software is in, for example, directories FFox82, FFox84, FFox86 The profiles are in, for example, directories Firefox82, Firefox84, Firefox86 (The software and profiles are on different drives.)

When I do an upgrade, I copy the newest software to a new directory and rename it (e.g., FFox92 - so now there are 4 sw directories) Then I copy the newest profile directory and give it a corresponding name (e.g., Firefox92 - so now there are 4 profile directories). I install the new version to its directory and thenlaunch with a -p option. Then I create a new profile and point it to the corresponding folder. Then I launch the new version with the -p option pointing to the new profile directory.

This has worked for decades.

But I just tried it with Firefox 90 and Firefox 92 and NO GO. It acts as if I've never used Firefox before. No apps, no toolbars, no bookmarks, nothing.

What is going on? Am I stuck on Firefox86 for the rest of the century?

And, please, don't tell me how wonderful these new versions are and I should simply accept the change. I have a virtual lifetime invested in the toolbars, extensions and bookmarks on my computer.

I simply want to know if there is a fix and, if so, what it is.

Download Temporary/Cache File Location

I have been trying to locate the temporary file of the failed download video file. I was downloading a huge video file (78 GB) and the system froze in the middle of it. So I was forced to cut the power and restart the laptop. After restarting, I saw that my system drive is still filled with the temporary file (part), but I couldn't locate it and delete the temp file. It has taken up about 40 GB of my system drive space because the download was more than half way through.

When I started the download, I selected an external drive as the destination. However, I have been observing Firefox download behavior and I am pretty sure Firefox would download as much of the file to system drive as possible, until the system drive is full, then moving onto the destination drive, which has been a huge inconvenience, because of the huge video files that I am dealing with.

I have already cleared the file and the .part in the destination drive, but failed to locate the rest of the temp file in my system drive. I have searched the internet and found no mention of such problem. So I am seeking professional help here.

Attached is a screenshot showing how much space is used by checking the system drive properties, against the properties of all files in system drive (including hidden). The number doesn't add up, and there are 52 GB of files unlocated.

It would seem that Mozilla has not yet created an official portable mode for Firefox(Seriously, after all these years?!?). It needs one in a bad way.

Now when I say portable mode what I mean is that the Firefox EXE runs from the folder it's in, using profiles that generated and exist in that same folder and NOT in the user profile. This functionality is needed not just for easy portability, but also for easy migrations from one system to another or one installation of OS to another.

While the portability mode should be exclusive to the platform FireFox is being used on(IE Windows vs Linux, etc), it should be seamless transition otherwise.

Before anyone chimes in and says this is not possible, please don't waste your time. Forks of FF have been doing so nearly effortlessly for more than a decade while maintaining perfectly functionally and security with the same usability.

So Devs, can you please make this happen? We the public would ever so grateful.

Additionally, can we get some fine grained controls over the appearance of UI elements?

This double spacing nonsense is irritating.

Then there is the Extension Icons labels. They've been gone for a while and they need to return, or at least an option to enable them if we wish.

Next we have the "Home page and new windows" option in settings. Those two options should not be combined. When I open a new instance of FF, I would like to open a blank page. I don't want any navigation happening until I click something or type in an address. I expect FF to sit and wait for my input. Then when I click the "Home" icon button does it go to my define home page.

Next problem we have is the auto update feature. This seems to have become an incredibly nasty feature and behavior. For example, I recently updated to Windows 11. After migrating my previous install of FF to it, it swiftly and without ANY warning or user prompt at all updated itself from 78.15.0esr to 91.3. This was NOT desired So how about to folks show respect to us users by ASKING if we want to upgrade! Had a prompt appeared I would have swiftly canceled. Updates should ALWAYS be at the choice and involvement of the user, not at your whim. I had to spend 40minutes manually backtracking and recopying, which was unpleasant.

Please note that while my above statements have had some negativity to them, I am a ardent supporter of Mozilla and will continue to be. These above points are that of increasing frustration. I am of the school of thought that we the users should have complete and fine-grain controls over every aspect of how our browser operates, whether it be UI elements or nitty-gritty functionality.

I look forward to responses by members of the dev team.

Thank You, Lex

My install of Firefox was somehow corrupted. I was instructed by FF tech support to download the latest "Nightly" build, extract it to my "Downloads" folder, and launch it using the following command:

MOZ_ACCELERATED=0 MOZ_WEBRENDER=0 ~/Downloads/firefox/firefox

This opens a working install of "Nightly" (with purple & blue firefox icon), but as soon as I close it, the icon goes away. The program is not recognized as "installed" so it does not appear in a search for installed apps. And if I right-click on its icon while running, "Pin to taskbar" is not an option.

"Nighly" is working (I'm using it to type this) and I even have it Synced to my account, but the ONLY way to launch it is via the Terminal CLI. :(

My broken copy of "Firefox" is still listed as installed, but is unusable.

HELP! TIA

Win10 with what was Firefox 89. I had already disabled the Proton UI on this installation, because it is horrible. Today Firefox decided to update to version 91. All of the Proton UI junk is back. I tried disabling it again, but nothing worked. Doing a web search, it appears that Mozilla has disabled the ability to turn off Proton.

I then set about to rollback the installation back to version 89. I found a Mozilla link on this, went to their ftp server and downloaded the installation files for the last version of 89. The installation went normally, but when I opened Firefox afterwards, a little box popped up saying something to the effect of "To keep your History and Bookmarks from possibly being corrupted, Firefox must create new user profile." I exited out of this and Firefox didn't start. I attempted to restart Firefox again and the same box popped up again. The only way to get past it was to click the accept button.

I did so and Firefox started. This was clearly not version 89. As the UI is junk, it took several minutes to find out that this was now the latest version of 92!!!! I'm absolutely positive that I downloaded the correct file. When I look through the update history, it doesn't even show todays version 89 installation as happening. What a piece of junk.

I then spent 20 minutes figuring out how to revert back to my user profile, not the new one that it had created for me. I then did some research on what had happened. Well it turns out that you can't actually rollback Firefox, despite what Mozilla says. For a while they have added "downgrade protection" which automatically creates the new user profile and stops your old profile from being accessed by it. So unless you want to figure out how to spend a hundred hours reconstructing bookmarks, passwords, settings, etc. it actually isn't possible to rollback Firefox. Doesn't this violate some Microsoft rules about being able to uninstall versions of software from within Windows? If you try to do this with Firefox and go back to a previous version it blows everything up.

Does anyone know how to actually rollback Firefox to a previous version, so that Proton can be disabled?

Hi,

I'm trying to download xilinx vivado design suite and cannot. The download fails for both Chrome and Firefox and the web installer fails as well. I've tried using a single file download, removing myself from my family's account and also tried using a download manager. I also deleted

This issue has been happening for about half a year now- I've been able to finish downloads by simply retrying them, but I've never tried to download a file this large (the single file download is roughly 60 GB and I would rather solve this issue than retry the download for a 60gb file).

Any ideas or suggestions why my downloads keep failing? Is this maybe an issue with my ISP?

The 89.0 (64-bit) update to Firefox is a joke! When are fixes coming or is there any way for me to return to the previous edition. I cannot get used to this charade.

I think that Firefox is by far the most superior browser and this update is just so not Firefox. It hurts. It hurts really bad!
