Firefox came preinstalled as snap package on ubuntu 18.04, but has been giving trouble since

I'm running through problems when downloading files:


   The open with dialog application does not see most applications, in particular it doesn't see evince nor libreoffice. The dropdown defaults to "Url Handler Script (default)", which does nothing with my files.
If I choose to open the file with firefox (say a pdf file) a blank page appears

All these options work with chrome though..

The only way I can view a downloadable file is by saving it somewhere in my home directory and then open it which is a pain!


Obviously snap firefox doesn't access anything beyond thatI've successfully installed Firefox as a snap package (done by default by installing it through Ubuntu's "software center"). It does work, and give me a more recent version of Firefox than the one available through APT.

I'm running through problems when downloading files, though:

   Saving them in /tmp/ does not work, since the snap version of Firefox uses a different filesystem than the one of the host computer, hence Firefox and non-snap applications see different content in /tmp/.
   The open with dialog application does not see most applications, in particular it doesn't see evince nor libreoffice, which I've installed through APT. The dropdown defaults to "Url Handler Script (default)", which apparently does nothing with my files.
   If I save a downloaded file, the open containing folder button in the downloads list does not work. I'm guessing that it tries to open nautilus, but fails to do so because nautilus is a non-snap application.I've successfully installed Firefox as a snap package (done by default by installing it through Ubuntu's "software center").

To start, I am using Windows 10 and Firefox 75.0. I have recently reinstalled Firefox and have run into a problem that makes the program unusable. When launching the browser after installation, it will never open and instead get stuck endlessly closing and opening a process in task manager. It is also not possible to terminate the process without either restarting my computer or uninstalling, as it will give an error saying the process does not exist anymore. This also seems to open and close consent.exe in the system32 files endlessly. I've tried multiple previous versions of Firefox in order to try and mitigate this problem, but all of them encounter the same result. I've uninstalled, deleted all of my profiles, cleared all files in appdata, and even tried deleting registry files related to the browser, but the problem persists. A similar problem seems to have been encountered by another user, but their problem seemed to fix itself (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1589424). Firefox also doesn't seem to produce any errors with this issue, so I am unsure of what to do.

EDIT: As of this writing I figured out the problem. It turns out my user account control panel had been disabled and was trying to launch itself to verify permissions. My user account did not have full control over the application, hence UAC trying to activate. Changing my account permissions solved this problem.

I really like Mozilla, but getting help is impossible. I had to restore my computer by to factory settings. I had all my bookmarks plus a lot of addons and plugins from Mozilla. Is there anyone I can get help from by directly corresponding thru email. I could wait days for an answer thru the forum if I could even find it once I have submitted my question. For me this is urgent.

Every upgrade has resulted in only running the updater.exe file. The only way around this that I have found is to do a full install directly from the new version instead of doing an update. This problem has been evident for about 3 updates so far including the update to version 21.0 I am running windows 7, 64bit with norton internet security.

I tried the suggestion to download Firefox and upgrade Symantec Endpoint Protection. It does not work. The Symantec Endpoint Protection is disabled when I try to use Firefox. Is there a way to get the old Firefox back? (PS: I do not know if I am posting correctly. This is the first time that I have asked questions on this site.)

I sent a screen shot of firefox as a response to yesterdays email through gmail. I have not received a response back yet. My screen still looks like the old version. I have none of the new attributes for being on the most current version of firefox.

Also, as I was trying to resolve my issue with not being able to open the itunes store I noticed that my firewall is not allowing the following: Plugin Container for Firefox. Should this be allowed?

Also, I am not able to download the itunes software through Firefox. I have to use either Google Chrome or Internet Explorer. Why would this be happening?

Please help. I'm not sure what is going on.

Hi cgb0006, backbuttonsucks has posted an answer to your question on support.mozilla.org: How to I rollback after update erased bookmarks and new version cannot access web? backbuttonsucks wrote: Your firefox profile is (most likely) located at the following location:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ it sounds like you have multiple profiles as you say old bookmarks are appearing. Otherwise, you would have to restore this directory from backup. If you have previous versions turned on in windows OS, then you could right click on the folder and go to "previous versions" tab for the automatic backup. Its possible the other profile is there somewhere in that directory. If you have multiple user profiles, take a look a the boomarks.html file to find the correct one. The commands in this article should list all your profiles: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=Managing+profiles

THIS UNFORTUNATELY DOES NOT SOLVE THE APPARENT NETWORKING PROBLEM (NOR WAS I ABLE TO FIND THE OLD BOOKMARKS), AND HAVING CHECKED MY NETWORK PARAMETERS, I SUSPECT THAT THE NEW VERSION IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH MY OPERATING SYSTEM. I WISH TO BE WALKED THROUGH A ROLLBACK TO MY PREVIOUS VERSION, PREFERABLY WITHOUT HAVING TO PERFORM A SYSTEM RESTORE.

I got an answer and I replied with a question about the answer, does no show in unanswered questions. I guess replying was not the way to get another anwer, How do I do that?

He said - Certain Firefox problems can be solved by performing a Clean reinstall. This means you remove Firefox program files and then reinstall Firefox. I want to know - Will I still have my bookmarks, history, addons, plugins, etc.? I do not know what plugins and such that I had. What about my pinned tabs and my tabs that where open.

More information - When I try to start Firefox I keep getting the message that I need to restart my computer in order to complete a previous update attempt. I had Sweetpacks on my PC and I do not know where it came from, it took over my home page in Internet Explorer and Ithink caused the issue with Firefox.

Should I do the clean install or try starting Firefox now.

24 has downloaded without my approval. How do I keep 22.0, and prevent the 24.0 upgrade? I do not want to lose the Javascript toggle since I use it continually. I prefer having Javascript off, but need it on random pages, and do not want to restart my browser every time i change it, since I don't have the bandwidth to waste or constant restarts.
