I would like to have two copies of firefox installed on one Windows computer. They are in two different languages, one in English and one in Japanese. Is it possible?

Alternatively Japanese with one Window user account and English in all other user accounts on the same computer. Is it possible too?

i don't know is it just me? i have used forums all over the web and to post a new question, you just click on the "New Post" button or something similar.

why is it here in Firefox, that button is not there? you have to jump thru several layers of questions and answers before being able to post a question like this one!!

To the firefox forum maintainers, please create a "New Post" button instead of forcing us thru several layers of questions.

Google safe browsing is using a poor quality engine or fault algorithm and is false flagging sites as containing malware and false flagging download files as containing malware/viruses.

Here is one example:

Google flagged AutoHotkey_104805.zip as containing malware or a virus.

Analysis of AutoHotkey_104805.zip in June of 2018 by virustotal.com (https://www.virustotal.com/ro/file/c8bf1c3dc4622559963b6626316ba1d083bb8a8af605f78382e371e5294d435a/analysis/) shows that out of 59 engines used to test the file only Cylance detected a problem with the file. Cylance is not a top rated engine and that detection is almost certain to be a false positive.

The follow engines passed AutoHotkey_1.1.28.00.zip as CLEAN:

Ad-Aware, AegisLab, AhnLab-V3, Alibaba, ALYac, Arcabit, Avast, Avast Mobile, AVG, Avira, AVware, Babable, Baidu, BitDefender, Bkav, CAT-QuickHeal, ClamAV, CMC, Comodo, DrWeb, Emsisoft, ESET-NOD32, F-Prot, Fortinet, GData, Ikarus, Sophos ML, Jiangmin, K7AntiVirus, K7GW, Kaspersky, Kingsoft, Malwarebytes, MAX, McAfee, McAfee-GW-Edition, Microsoft, eScan, NANO-Antivirus, Panda, Qihoo-360, Rising, SUPERAntiSpyware, Symantec, TACHYON, Tencent, TheHacker, TotalDefense, TrendMicro, TrendMicro-HouseCall, VBA32, VIPRE, ViRobot, Webroot, Yandex, Zoner

NOTE: 9 of the these engines are in the top 10 anitvirus/malware engines (UNDERLINED). All reported that AutHotkey_1.1.28.00.zip is CLEAN. F-Secure was not run on this file.

Google safe browsing claims that this file is INFECTED.

Similar analysis of multiple other Google Safe Browsing "infected" files from this site show similar CLEAN results when tested by virustotal.com.

Mozilla should report this issue to Google and demand that Google employ only quality engines to screen files. Google should employ better quality algorithms to prevent false flagging of files and web sties.

If Firefox is going to block web access to sites and to downloads based upon bad data from Google, then I am going to be forced to switch to another browser.

Mozilla. Stand up, take action, and provide the quality service you have provided IN THE PAST.

THERE IS A SECOND MAJOR ISSUE. Once a download file is flagged as containing malware there is a bug in Firefox. The only options offered by Firefox are "REMOVE FILE" or "OPEN". "OPEN" should not be an option at this point. The options should be "DOWNLOAD ANYWAY" or "REMOVE FILE". With the current options and an .exe file (if downloaded) will be immediately executed resulting in infection if the file is tainted. With my suggested options, If a user chooses to "DOWNLOAD ANYWAY" then Firefox should remind the user the file may be infected and should recommend that the file be scanned by the user's antivirus/malware software before opening.

In the admin account and all user accoutns, I had Firefox > Options > Advanced > NO UPDATES and turned OFF "Use a background service to install updates."

I created a new account on this computer. The VERY FIRST THING I did was go to Firefox > Options > Advanced > NO UPDATES and turned OFF "Use a background service to install updates."

Guess what. It updated. It updated for all accounts.

I've easily lost four work days of time in the first 8 months of 2019 because of FIrefox updates. I need a way to stop updates. ALL updates. FOREVER. ALL UPDATES UNCONDITIONALLY BLOCKED. No leakage. I do not want them with a goat. I do not want them on a boat. I do not want them here or there. I do not want them anywhere. Is there any remaining ambiguity?

The ways described above don't cut it. So let's think unconventionally. Is there a file I can set the protections on, so Firefox's update balks and gives up? Can I create a file that has a name that Firefox update expects, and give that file some content or property so that Firefox update fails?

Dear Developers,

I'm using Firefox v60.0.1 on Debian Linux. I was wondering why on Earth is the Ctrl-Q shortcut is defined at all to immediately close all tabs and quit the browser? I think it is an extremely bad idea to have this shortcut, since it is very easy to accidentally hit it by mistyping Ctrl-W, which is in turn oftentimes used.

I suggest to remove Ctrl-Q from future versions, or at least give the user the option to turn it off. In the current version I have found no way to do it, if there is, please let me know.

Many thanks in advance!

I'm not sure if this is my Firefox acting up, or just the aftermath of Utorrent installing Web Companion, restoring sessions in Firefox hasn't been possible. Firefox does remember my history, but it shows no options for restoring session or restoring tabs. I've already done a refresh, I've deleted web companion and run CCleaner and Malwarebytes Adwcleaner and they show my system is clean, but I still can't get restore sessions to work.

What's going on, and how can I fix this?

Hi,

in pre Quantum versions, you could make your Firefox safe against malware with a simple trick. It was little known but very effective because it uses Windows tools to limit Firefox abilities to write or modify files. We use the Windows program icacls to limit write access to a selected set of subfolders. Here is how it worked:

icacls "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" /setintegritylevel low
icacls "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox" /setintegritylevel (oi)(ci)low
icacls "C:\Users\[...]\AppData\Local\Temp" /setintegritylevel (oi)(ci)low
icacls "C:\Users\[...]\AppData\Local\Mozilla\updates" /setintegritylevel (oi)(ci)low
icacls "C:\Users\[...]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox" /setintegritylevel (oi)(ci)low
icacls "C:\Users\[...]\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox" /setintegritylevel (oi)(ci)low
icacls "C:\Users\[...]\AppData\LocalLow\Mozilla" /setintegritylevel (oi)(ci)low
icacls "[...]\Downloads" /setintegritylevel (oi)(ci)low
icacls "[...]\Firefox Profile" /setintegritylevel (oi)(ci)low

Then I updated to Quantum and now this seems to not work anymore. After I secured Firefox in this way and started Firefox, Firefox then doesn't show any websites (just grey area), no popups etc. The whole Firefox UI seems to be broken.

Does anyone know how to fix this? For example, are there additional folders I need to give access to? Or is this not possible in post Quantum Firefox because of this new process architecture etc.?

Appalling Comments from Mozilla about tabs on bottom instead of top

"With the number of user complaints from inept users who can't seem to follow precise instructions about using userChrome that "we" support volunteers (and Mozilla) are seeing here, I fully expect some limits placed in Firefox as to what userChrome can modify in future Firefox versions. "We" are recommending too many "fixes" for "restoring" real old features like "tabs on the bottom" that Mozilla killed long ago."

Yes, unfortunately I'm one of those inept non-programmer users and if you leave out essential steps in the instructions (like where to find your profile file) I can't follow them either. And why ask me to learn programming and spend 15 minutes fixing this? A LOT of people have requested this preference. How arrogant to belittle it. With every Firefox update my tabs below fix disappears again and I am left with tabs on top where I don't like them, and have to google again for yet another fix.

Please, please add this option to Firefox preferences.

Using Mac OS X High Sierra with Firefox version 60.0 (64 bit). Firefox is loading homepage twice, in the same tab, at startup only. It works normally when going to homepage from another website and when opening another tab. Tried setting different homepages and they all load twice but only at startup. Also, Firefox used to close nearly instantly but now notice it closes a lot slower, usually after about 6 seconds.

The problem is that Firefox isn't listed as an option on the drop down menu. Maybe that's because I'm using Portable, rather than the installed version.

Resetting to Microsoft recommended defaults doesn't help.
