A piece of software I need to use for work requires an older version of Firefox (Firefox 68.4.2 ESR) to run, so in the past, I've had to delete Firefox and re-download the older version which has worked fine. However, I recently got a new Mac and now when I try the same thing it's not working. Whenever I first open Firefox after downloading it, it opens as the correct (older) version, however it does not seem to be able to connect to the internet and I get the spinning wheel that never ends, and then whenever I close out of Firefox and reopen it, it automatically updates to the newest version. I have multiple times gone into the settings on Firefox and changed my preferences to check with me before installing updates and I've gone into the settings of the App Store to make sure it's not automatically updating any apps or programs. My computer is currently running OS version 11.1 (Big Sur) and I'm wondering if maybe this version is too new to be compatible with Firefox 68 ESR? Any help, ideas, or advice is greatly appreciated!

When i look into resource monitor, i get sick by seeing how much firefox is writing to my C: SSD. Some time ago i tried fixing it by doing folder linking and stuff i already forgot. It seems like everything got reverted after an update or something. (You can tell im not a Pro) But why is this such a hassle in the first place? Why cant we just get the option to completely deny the use of SSD? I dont care how slow it would be, i dont want to bu a new SSD every 2 years.

AVG migrates my mozilla thunderbird from version 60.5.3 to 78.4.3 and I do not know how to avoid that. Version 60.5.3 is not compatible to 78.4.3 and I would have to start my thunderbird from new and would loose all my data (adresses, emails etc.). So I install version 60.5.3 from my downloads and all works fine again till AVG does it again. So either how can I tell AVG to leave my thunderbird in peace or how kann I migrate my data from 60.5.3 to 78.4.3 wich would of course be the better solution.

Firefox Updates regularily break SAP Employee Self-Service functionality on all company laptops - how to prevent firefox to update or rollback updates?

Firefox Updates regularily break the complete SAP Employee Self-Service (ESS) functionality on all company laptops - how to prevent Firefox to update or rollback updates? Best solution would be one that each employee can do without admin rights! Thanks & Kind regards!

Background Info: Since Firefox does not support SAP apps eg. Employee Self Service (ESS) we need to use IE for that. But unfortunately Firefox Updates even destroy IE functionality for SAP ESS. What happen is, that IE crashes and Firefox is opened! (Eventhough firefox is not standard browser! It's chrome!) Only solution is to completely remove all firefox installations company wide from all employee laptops! Until then, we have after each (enforced) firefox update enormous traffic on our first level support hotline.

Thus: How can Firefox Updates be permanently prevented? Or how can Firefox Updates be reversed (without Admin rights) by enduser without IT Support!?

With concerns about supply chain security, I would like the ability to ensure that the file download matches a recognized checksum.

Downloading from: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/78.6.1/releasenotes/ yields checksum SHA256 55249C4861FE521CB32D72785481A146B64812AF2ECE7341FAAA5C79ABC0F395

This does not match any of the checksums available at: https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.6.1esr/

Best practice would be to publish the official checksum along with the release notes.

Is there another way to close the loop on this?

Podczas eksportu sesji treningowej za pomocą przeglądarki Firefox v. 84.0.2 pliki .tcx automatycznie pobierają się do pliku .xml. W przypadku pobierania plików .tcx za pomocą przeglądarki Chrome v. 87.0.4280.141 problem nie występuje, również w przypadku pliku zipowanego pobierane dane są z rozszerzeniem .tcx w dwóch przeglądarkach.

I run Firefox in portable mode in Windows 10. It works wonderfully. However, when i click on web links outside of FF, it loads Chrome. So in FF I go to options and set it as a default. In "default apps" it shows up there. But Because I am running FF portable, by setting it as default browser, it creates a new profile on c:\users\username . And loads a whole new instance of FF. That is not what I would like to happen.

Is there a way to set it up so that when I click a link in an email, it will load the FF from the portable instance? using the profile within the portable directory. Usually I always have FF open. It is never closed.

I do not want to use Safari any longer. I downloaded Firefox yesterday on my Mac. I set up my preferences. Then when I went to open it it had disappeared. Gone. Not in my Application or Download folders. I tried again to install it and the Download on your site shows a pop up with a FF icon and an arrow to the App store. It is to in the App store anymore. It was there yesterday!

I just installed the esr version of Firefox. I did not think that I would lose all my bookmarks, add-on, etc. Is there a way to revert back to the standard version with all my old data? Or in looking at the profiles I see a default profile, a default-esr profile, and a default-release profile. This latter profile seems to have my old data when I open the folders and look around. However, when I try to open that profile in new window it says something about opening an old version and losing data and creating a new profile. When I do that, I still get a fresh browser with none of my data.

1. I had firefox in a 64bit win7 proff with relatively high specs desktop forever. Last week it started showing update notification every time i restart firefox and I choose to "remind me later" or something like that (I made the settings so that it won't auto install).

2. During that week i did restart firefox and the computer and everything was normal untill yesterday when I did something normal but I rarely do, that is i turned of the computer for more than a minute and then turned it back on. Then firefox started having trouble loading certain webpages. Things like youtube, google maps, google search, bing home page, were flawless, while things like some businesses (i remember craigslist and goodwill) and some famous podcast webpages and my wifi controlled devices struggle (take too long, then message that they were taking too long, but never show up)

3. I first "refreshed" my firefox, then reinstalled it, then when it wasn't fixed deleted the whole thing and tried installing a fresh downloaded version (I think it was 83). The downloaded installer tells me that i already had firefox and if i wish to reinstall it and after that it takes a long time to throw a message at me that starts with ("hmmmm" for "some" reason unknown reason, the installation failed to work) or very similar wording.

4. The only browser left in the computer is the microsoft one that comes with the computer and it does open the modzilla website but refuses to download the installed (obviously) so i have to download it from a windows tablet and transfer it to this computer.

any advice/insight is very much welcome

Everytime I update to a new Firefox, I lose my auto logins on sites. I have to get out my Password list and manually login to every frikkin' site. I keep putting off updating, hoping that maybe the problem has been fixed, but like Lucy pulling the football from Charlie Brown, I give in and update and WHAM!

If this can't be fixed, is there a way to disable auto Firefox updates or even that nagging box in the upper right hand corner.

I don't do a lot of surfing on my PC any more, so to have this continually happen over and over again is extremely aggravating!
