Hello! I followed these directions from the Mozilla team (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos) for downloading Firefox on a chrome OS using the terminal. I successfully installed it, but I can't figure out how to actually make it my default browser- it doesn't show up as an option in my browser settings. Could anyone help me? Thank you. :)

How can I restore FF to the previous version that I had as the update carried nothing over? I did manage to find my previous bookmarks json file in a folder in my Mac but I couldn't load them into Bookmarks but I can access them all, from an odd location. I had it set up perfectly for my needs which I did over time, but it's all gone. All the add ons disappeared and most not available on 95.0. I've been using FF since the beginning of FF and never had this problem. In the past there was a notification to upgrade which I could accept or decline but that seems to be gone. In those instances I'd keep my old profile and make a new one and could revert back to the old one if needed which 99% of the time I didn't need to. But this time it just updated when I opened it so I couldn't back up the old profile. Web Security is not an issue for me as I have the best app for that plus VPN on all the time. Even when I lived in Communist China I never had any security issues.

It happens all the time after Microsoft's update or upgrade, when I have many tabs open in Mozilla browser, after the update all tabs I can not restore. WHY??? In dumb google search engine it does not happen. Why does it happen in Firefox??? All opened pages should be stored in computer somewhere ? Please explain, why I loose all tabs that has been opened previous to any dumb microsoft updates? And I can not restore them because the restore of the previous session is grayed out. Total crap, isn't it??? Please explain why. I have just downloaded another browser. If this one is going to work better than Firefox then I will stick to it. I am waiting for your prompt reply as your browser user. Regards, John

Tried to update to 95.0.1 today, running Win 10Pro v21H2, but this problem existed with prior Win 10 builds and with prior FF updates.

I click Help>About, and it checks for updates, as expected. When it finds an update, it attempts to download it but doesn't appear to download anything (0 bytes of 6.9 MB) even though the circle continues spinning, or it says 'update failed'.

If I exit FF and reopen, it immediately goes back to that same download screen with the spinning circle but it's stuck showing 0 bytes of 6.9 MB.

But, when I Restart Win 10, open FF again and click Help>About, it immediately shows the button to Restart to Update Firefox. So it seems the download actually succeeded, but isn't being properly detected or properly queued for installation...

Once I click Restart to Update Firefox, it closed, launches the update and FF reopens, so the update had been downloaded and worked.

Thanks!

Drag and drop from firefox to Windows desktop stopped working on w7 after installing current version(Firefox 95) still works on W10. AND OTHER PROBLEMS

I think the title says it all, but to repeat, drag and drop, (either URLs or images), from Firefox 95 to Windows desktop stopped working on the current version after I installed it fresh in W7pro. It still works on my W10 machine. That functionality is literally on all other browsers, including yours on Win10. I will NOT turn Windows UAC back on, as has been suggested by many. It was and still is a P.I.T.A. and I don't need user accounts, as I am the only user. UAC sets all kinds of traps on the computer, and spreads like a cancer, and interrupts everything with popup security messages constantly that are totally unnecessary.

What this does to me the user:

It makes me have to do a bunch of additional steps to do what I used to do with a mouse movement and still do on Firefox in Windows 10. So it creates an operational difference between my older laptop with w7 and my PC with W10. I might add that I was using Vivaldi on my w7 machine, and will go back to doing so because of these issues.

Now, to save an image on just the W7 machine, I have to right click, choose "Save As" from the drop down context menu, then click on an okay button, and Firefox puts it wherever it wants on the desktop, and I have to go looking for it, then drag it to where I want it. I used to simply drag it to where I wanted with a single mouse operation.

On a URL, now I have to highlight and copy the URL, Right click the desktop, and using windows shortcut creator, create a new shortcut then paste the URL into it and name it, whereas I used to be able to simply drag the URL onto the desktop.

This is the age old battle of making something new just for the sake of doing so, and eliminating functionality that everyone wanted and was using, and providing no means for users to give input on what they want.

I've seen some of the other responses to people asking about this same problem, and no offense to some of you who are volunteers and trying your best, but some of them are ridiculously complicated workarounds. I build my own PC's and your instructions were more than I wanted to mess with. Particularly when the issue I'm having is one of functionality that is no longer there but was, and which every other modern browser has.

I find myself wondering why companies like Mozilla are so intent on making "the community" (the users) answer questions that the staff should be addressing. Passing that task off onto unpaid volunteers, many who have no clue how the designers designed something that now doesn't work, is in my opinion just the cheap new corporate model of "we don't want to be bothered." Make changes, screw things up, defer complaints and questions to other users, who have no answers (and can't sometimes do anything because gee, they aren't the developers).

Overall I like the browser, was one of the first promoters of Firefox to everyone, and have used it now for decades. Off and on. Off when the developers screwed it up, which was often, on again when they finally got it working again. But the whole time, the attitude has been that we the users are somehow always the problem or add-ons or extensions are always the problem, and so we need to reinstall a new "clean" version and see if the problem is still there." That has been the pat solution from Mozilla for those decades. The add-ons and extensions are because features are needed that are not included in the browser. Hint. Hint.

Other problems? No password import other than from IE or Chrome. Why should I have to go install and set up IE or Chrome, just to migrate my passwords? Vivaldi is a chromium based browser. Why does your importer not work on those? Why no ability to do it using an .xls or .csv file???

I'm using the current version of Firefox, which is 95.0.0.2. However, from time to time I get a message saying FF "... could not update itself, so I should manually download and install a newer version". After that, there is a message in the hamburger menu saying "update available - download now".

Has anybody an idea why Firefox thinks there is a newer version than the one I have installed?

Cheers,

Hello

When I try to access a document file from a link on a webpage, Firefox is requiring that I first save the file to my iMac. I do not want to do this, I only want to see the file (word document). This has only just started to occur since I recently upgraded my iMac to MacOS Monterey (12.1).

Can anyone let me know how to stop this happening?

Hi,

I've tried to install the desktop version of Firefox on my brother's new Chromebook, using the instructions here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos I enabled Linux, installed Flatpak, and installed Firefox. But when clicking the Firefox button nothing happens, a circle on the program icon just keeps rotating endlessly. When in the terminal, using the command flatpak run org.mozilla.firefox (which I got from https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.mozilla.firefox ) I get the following error message: bwrap: Can't mount proc on /newroot/proc: Operation not permitted error: ldconfig failed, exit status 256

I also followed the guide here: https://techpp.com/2021/12/02/install-firefox-on-chromebook/ which is a slight variation of the same procedure, but the same thing happens (circle on icon, error message in terminal).

Did I do something wrong? Is this an error with Flatpak?

I was trying to disable GMX email add-on which seems to be embedded permanently. I have found about every place on my desktop and on Firefox to no avail. Their page keeps coming up as the browser window. In the process, I have lost access to my Firefox browser window. I have followed all the instructions given (btw: Microsoft no longer has the "install any" notation shown on your sample App setting screen). Still no browser screen appearing even though the Firefox is on the preference list both on your site and MS app site. All the browswer files seem to be located under Setting: Applications: Firefox. So I have browser search ability right now without reloading Edge or ???. Your thoughts please. Carolyn Tompkins [email removed from public]
