I have a clean basic install of Windows 7 64 bit Pro. It is completely up to date. New install of Firefox 49.

When going to Netflix I get the message

"Firefox is installing components needed to play audio or video..."

but never completes. If I try to run a netflix video my pc crashes, won't reboot until I do a power off.

The desired videos play on Netflix in IE fine.

I have NO antivirus running, FF is set to auto update.

Any ideas ?

I was forced to stop updating Firefox at version 46 because my processor and RAM couldn't handle the extra load. It just kept crashing. I rarely used Firefox, preferring something much smaller and faster -- K-Meleon.

Now I've acquired a newer machine running Windows 7 Pro. I thought I could install vs. 46 onto it, copy the "dbsjc2i1.default" file into the profile folder and get all my bookmarks and customizations back. After that I would tackle the business of upgrading to a newer version (although I don't plan on updating to Quantum (vs. 59) until the add-on authors have had a chance to rewrite their add-ons).

Only problem is, the name of the file in the Firefox profile folder has changed to something completely different. So how can I migrate my vs. 46 profile to vs. 56 on a Windows 7 machine??

History doesn't appear after downgrading Firefox

For a really long time I've been using an older version of Firefox (47.0b9, to be precise) because I didn't like the following updates. A week ago I noticed some problems with one website I was using and so thought that maybe it's because I was using outdated browser or something like that. To check this out I updated Firefox to newest (in that moment) version of it, but it wasn't the case, and because I didn't like the changes made to interface and other things I immediately downgraded it back to the version I was using earlier. But then I realized that all my browser history was gone.

I spent last week trying to undo or repair it, and so I found out that my browser history was still there, untouched, but for some reason older Firefox could not "see" it. After updating again to the newest version browser history was back and it showed again.

I tried many things, like System Restore or Firefox Sync, to somehow get the history back in the older version, but it just didn't work.

The thing is, while the history doesn't appear in version 47.0b9, the last session - tabs that I had opened - still showed, and when clicking on "History" button, before going into History window, there was a list of recently visited websites, and the last sites I visited before that whole situation were truly there, so I presume it has to have access to files that contain my browser history.

I am aware that there are supposedly some safety risks that come with using older version of Firefox, but I didn't experience any problems during my long usage of it so I don't see an issue.

I really need my browser history to work again in older version of Firefox, and not only because I don't like how newest version looks, but because of how search bar was changed (that is most crucial to me when it comes to this topic) and the fact that after upgrading the browser it started to work slower than before for some reason, which is quite jarring. Some other applications also started working slower, but it isn't as important as the browser.

I also tried slightly newer version of Firefox, but it seems that anything below 55 doesn't work. I think I've read somewhere that in version 55 any downgrade below started to not be supported anymore.

I'm sure there were some changes made to files that contain browser history and things related to it over the course of time. I think that "places.sqlite" file was actually five times bigger after updating to newest version, but I don't know why is that, I'm not really knowledgeable in that field.

But I wonder if there is anything I can do to make it work again in older version, specifically 47.0b9.

Thank you in advance for any help.

“Thunderbird (or Firefox) is already running but is not responding. The old Thunderbird process must be closed to open a new window.”

I also get “Thunderbird (or Firefoc) cannot be loaded. The profile may be missing or inaccessible.” I used control panel and uninstalled both programs. I also deleted the previous downloads of the program. I rebooted and went to the web site and downloaded the installation program and installed it. I keep getting the same response. Any help?

I have an application at work for which I need Java 7. The newer versions of Java do not work with it. I've been using Firefox 41.0.2 just fine with Java 7R17 (32 bit), but now that I have upgraded to Firefox 43.0.1, Java 7R17 no longer works. Even if I just go to the "verify java" page (https://www.java.com/verify/), the Java plugin in Firefox locks up and after a few seconds I get the following pop up window:

Warning: Unresponsive plugin

may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the plugin now, or you can continue to see if the plugin will complete.

Don't ask me again Continue Stop Plugin

I encountered this in Firefox 42 also, and was forced to roll back to 41, which I will be doing now as well. Please let me know if there is a way to fix this.

When you look at the KEY (all caps) like https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/52.5.3esr/ Other than showing you a signing key ID(s) & an email addy to search for public keys, what is the purpose of the KEY on the download pages?

Entering: $ gpg KEY, where the KEY file is in the current location shown in the terminal, gives info like:

D98F0353 2015-07-17 Mozilla Software Releases <release@mozilla.com> sub 4096R/5E9905DB 2015-07-17 [expires: 2017-07-16]

Only thing I can figure is the "KEY" file is to tell users which public key ID or email addy to search for, if you don't already have the devs' correct public signing key stored on your keyring?

That still doesn't help to verify the authenticity of any downloads, unless there are *.asc signature files for each specific file. Like here: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/52.5.3esr/update/linux-x86_64/en-US/

There's a firefox update file that was signed by the devs, using one or more of their PGP signature keys. And a 2nd "signature file" - with .asc extension, that's used with GPG to verify the downloaded file's **authenticity.** NOTE: This has NOTHING to do with checksums!

Checksums don't verify that the file you're downloading wasn't tampered with after it was loaded on the server. Only that there were no read / write errors during download process.

The two files below were together. You need both to verify authenticity using gpg. firefox-52.5.2esr-52.5.3esr.partial.mar firefox-52.5.2esr-52.5.3esr.partial.mar.asc

If I've already downloaded the mozilla devs' public keys & stored them on a keyring app, then I can verify the downloaded file. If you change dir to where the update file & the signature file (.asc) are stored, then you enter:

 $ gpg --verify firefox-52.5.2esr-52.5.3esr.partial.mar.asc firefox-52.5.2esr-52.5.3esr.partial.mar

If the signed downloaded file's signature matches the .asc file & also the correct, stored public key for the authors, it will say:

gpg: Signature made Tue 03 Oct 2017 05:22:45 PM CDT using RSA key ID 24C6F355 gpg: Good signature from "Mozilla Software Releases <release@mozilla.com>"

The FULL installer packages like firefox-52.5.3esr.linux-x86_64.sdk.tar.bz2 don't seem to have signature files available (with .asc). There's no way for users to manually verify full installer packages. Maybe they somehow do "self verification." It seems like firefox would have to contact a server - at some point to compare signature of the package being installed against a known good signature key.

I have been unable to use Firefox for several days because I either forgot or never had a password for Firefox. I already have the latest version of Firefox installed since I recently upgraded my iMac to MAC OS High Sierra and downloaded the latest Firefox at that time. I don't want to lose any of my bookmarks or other information, so I have not used the "reset" function. I have read all of the workarounds to not being able to log in, but if I do the one that works, I WILL lose my bookmarks or other info.

Will I need to use a password if I uninstall Firefox and reinstall it? OR, will I have the same problem I have now (not being able to login)? Please help! Thank you!

We need to use Firefox 33.0.1 for testing, but every time my tools use Firefox, the next time I find it has upgraded to 45.

In preferences I have set to never update, turned off search engine updates, and in the config page, have made sure the app.update.auto/enabled/silent are all false.

I am running on a Mac 10.11, I have renamed my original latest Firefox installation, and install the oldest in the default path for our tools to detect.

I see the maintenance service only exists for Windows computers, and I do not see any update folders in Firefox's application or Application Support directories.

This update will happen even when I don't restart my computer, or open Firefox manually in between test runs.
