Whenever I see the "restart required" screen (either because I entered about:restartrequired or because Firefix just pops it up) and I click the "Restart" button which promises to restore Firefox and all my tabs, Firefox never, ever restarts.

Hasn't from day one over 3 years ago.

I've waited for an hour, and nothing happens. Eventually I have to click the icon to start it manually.

Not a great bug in the scale of things, but I really don't like software that lies to me. Maybe someone could fix the message ? Or the bug ?

Recently updated to FF 80. Now when I try to right click and "save as" on an image or file, FF shows the download as canceled in the progress section and I have to manually click the 'retry' button to restart and complete the download. I never had this problem before the recent update. Any help is appreciated.

I have a Firefox account but now it is requiring me to sync to other devices in order to update Firefox. I have zero Other Devices, no smartphone or personal computer, just my office computer on campus. Does having no additional devices mean that I will never be able to Update Firefox anymore? When I try to install Update it says it needs to install Helper but when I enter Password it says NO, except that that IS the Password that signs me into my Firefox account, but that account sign-in then wants me to Sync Other Devices which I can't do since I have no other device. So it's kind of a hopeless circle...

Last school year I could Update no problem, but then in March our buildings were all closed for Covid and only now am I getting around to trying to Update again.

(I'm a Senior Citizen visually impaired musical accompanist for Theatre and Dance, not computer-oriented in general, just when I'm on campus)

And although I posted this Q at 1:09 pm Eastern Time here where I live, it says I posted it at 10:09 am? Why would it show Pacific Time?

The latest MS Edge browser, forced onto my Win10 Pro pc this week, has hijacked some protocols or file types (?). Firefox is no longer my default app for these.

I can disassociate Edge from these (so at least Edge does not open automatically).

But I cannot register Firefox to open http/https links.

For example, typing "http://mozilla.org" into the Win10 start menu produces the dialog in the attached screenshot - Only option is to select an app from the MS Store to open a "microsoft-edge link".

I cannot choose Firefox, which is already registered to open http, https protocols.

Anyone able to recover from this latest Edge hijacking?

As of the last update to Firefox for android Firefox is now intercepting all file download links and not allowing me to select the location to save the file previously these links would display an intend asking if I wanted to download with Firefox or use an external download manager app. This is no longer occurs and I am unable to save downloads to my external SD card. Is this a flaw in the new version or did a config setting get reset during the update I have forgotten about,

Got email from Mozilla about what I thought was an update. I ended up, after trying to follow the instructions and now have 2 Firefox apps on my screen. I can't tell which is my original because both screens look totally identical other than locations on the top bar that shows icons for my added apps - they are not identical in order. I don't want to use whatever this new version is because it is too confusing for me to follow so how do I get rid of it when I don't know which is my original????? Please help!!!

This is just me or Firefox doesn't support drag and drop images to the desktop and download them, and I also can't drag and drop to Adobe Illustrator to edit images and what only comes out is a link, if in Chrome it's not like that

Anyway, my OS is Mac, is it because I'm a Mac so I can't?

I've installed two versions of Firefox in one Mac, 68.8 esr and 80.0.1. Though I want 68.8 to work as default browser, when I clicked URL on other apps, new 80.0.1 opened it always. One preference screen, both installations say that "Firefox is currently your default browser". No UI to set one as default.

Anyway to specify it?

Running current updated WIN10. After updating Firefox, it will not launch. I get multiple messages, saying that Firefox is already running, close the current Firefox. I have removed all mozilla apps for a fresh install. Yet it continues to do the same. I am forced to use Edge.

Anyone experiencing the same, and any answers?

So, I have been looking for lots of solutions but none of them worked. I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 and want to install and update Firefox Dev automatically. I tried some ways:

  • By package manager:

First, I uninstalled the default Firefox, removed its ppa repo then added Firefox Dev ppa and installed. Opened up and it was still normal Firefox.

  • By downloading .deb file from Mozilla:

I could install by this way but every time has an update, Firefox will notify me "Firefox can't udpate to the latest version. Download a fresh copy of Firefox". I also have Chrome to be installed via .deb, it can update automatically. Why Firefox can't? It's very annoying that every time I open Firefox, it pops the notification up. It's impossible that every time Firefox has an update (which occurs regularly!) I have to go to homepage, download then install it manually. I can write a script to update Firefox but I want an official support from Mozilla.

While downloading applications and such through mozilla, the files downloaded are simply named "download" and the type of file is "file" instead of "application" as it was supposed to be. Changing the format of the file manually does solve the problem but I want to know why is this happening as I didn't face this problem before.
