Firefox is listed twice in my start up files area. It is only once in the uninstall area. It is installed in my program files and the maintenance files in my Program Files (x86). When I click on them they pull up different programs but when I look at the version they are both the same version. How do I get rid of that 2nd Firefox in my startup. It is driving me crazy with the duplication.

We updated the machine from Win 7 to Win 10. (Firefox worked before the update). After the update was complete, we tried to open Firefox and was prompted with the Windows 10 "User account control" permission prompt window. If we click YES on the UAC window, it closes and comes back (the User Account Control window).

I cannot get Firefox to open. the UAC window just keep re-appearing no matter how many times I click yes. I tried uninstalling re-installing. Same result. I tried uninstalling and installing Version 71 (the current version is 72). Version 71 opened 1 time. Then I closed it and re-opened it, The same UAC prompt appears and the issue repeats.

Here is what I would like to do. I have a new computer with W10 Pro. I have had two other laptops, one is a W7 machine the other is a W 8.1 machine. All Dell laptops. Each of the older laptops has a unique E-mail Account to the same ISP with years of history of saved e-mails in designated folders under Local Folders. And address books. So far I have migrated the W 8.1 profile and all things contained in the Roaming/Thunderbird folder from the old machine. Worked well and am up and running.

What I hope to do is now also migrate the W 7 E-mail account and its associated profile and local folders to the new W 10 machine. So far, all attempts have been unsuccessful. Depending on what is done, the W 7 Local Folders do not come through under that e-mail account or, they overwrite the Local Folders of the W 8.1 e-mail account. It appears you cannot have two e-mail accounts with their respective e-mail addresses with the ISP and have the local folders for that profile on one machine at the same time?

If this is possible, what are the steps for getting there? Any help is appreciated.

I configured Thunderbird for automated download and installation of updates. I think that the fully automated process needs important improvements before it ss trustworthy enough.

After the automated update from version 68.4.1 to 68.4.2 my important add-ons "enigmail" and "google calendar provider" does not works any more, because they are "not compatible" with 68.4.2. But this information comes AFTER the update, and theres no way to roll back. When Thunderbird knows that installed plugins are not compatible with the version to be updated, why does Thunderbird not request a confirmation for updates from the user and informs about the risk that add-ons should not work any more? For the issue log:

  • Thunderbird should check for incompatible add-ons before the update will be processed.
  • In this case Thunderbird should inform the user about the risk and ask for confirmation, even if the option is set to fully automated updates
  • Thunderbild should save the old profile before an update will be processed to offer the option for an roll-back if necessary.

For now I disabled the fully auto process of updates and sets to information only. Hopefully you regards my suggestions.

This may be a general problem related to the Google Play Store, but I have been able to install every app I need except FIrefox so I figured I would start here.

I have a brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab A6 tablet (model SM-7280). The tablet runs Android 5.1.1 and seems to meet all of the other system requirements for Firefox.

When I open the Google Play Store, I can search for Firefox and view the app. When I press "Install" the store prompts me to accept the app permissions required. Normally, pressing "accept" would then begin downloading the app, but nothing is happening. I have tried several times over the last two weeks without any success. This morning, I tried clearing the Google Play Store app data (including the cache), but I still get the same result.

I installed another app this morning to verify that the Google Play Store was still working otherwise. The problem seems to only be affecting Firefox.

How can I install FIrefox?

Have spent HRS searching your site and others for help!!! Trying to import contacts from WIndows Live Mail. All instructions I've tried to follow are WRONG INFO!!! It's disappointing that TB can't import contacts DIRECTLY from WLM's contact.edb file, but I've gone into WLM and exported the contacts into VCF form as recommended by TB. However, the directions then say to go to Thunderbird Address Book and go to Tools > MoreFunctionsForAddressBook > Actions for Contacts > Import vCard / VCF. NO SUCH OPTION EXISTS!!!! I've downloaded the latest version of TB, and under tools there is ONLY Address Book, IMPORT, EXPORT and OPTIONS. I've gone to import, and walked thru the steps, choosing to import VCF, then chose the folder location, but it opens the location folder showing ALL INDIVIDUAL CONTACTS, and there is NO WAY TO CHOOSE ALL, I can only click on ONE AT A TIME!!! ???? However, even when doing that, it places that contact in the address book list AS A NEW LIST/ADDRESS BOOK!!! There is NO WAY to force that vcf file to into the default existing "ADDRESS BOOK" there, I have gone in circles a hundred times, trying different things, but same result everytime. Then everytime I search for help on this issue, I come across different directions. SOME places say TB cannot directly import MESSAGES from WLM either, and those must be exported (DUMB in the case of a computer that is unable to boot and/or open WLM). Other places say TB CAN INDEED import messages directly from WLM's storage folders!!! Some places said press CTRL-A to select all vcf files in the export folder - NOPE!!! Still doesn't work. HOW DO I IMPORT CONTACTS???????

I'm currently on 73.0b5 (64-bit) on Windows 10. I'm trying to use the "Update to 73.0 Beta 11" button from the "About" screen to update the browser. This normally works but today, it's having problems and I suspect it's due to our corporate policies being changed around.

I'm going to submit a request to our enterprise idiot to have this fixed in their whitelists, etc. but before I can do that, I need to know what kinds of permissions to request. What's responsible for the update process and what folders need to have which permissions for this to work?

Because right now, pressing the "Update to 73.0 Beta 11" button results in Firefox downloading the update but when it tries to install it, it fails with the "Update failed. Download the latest version" message in the "About" screen (when it was working last week without a single hitch).

According to my about:support details, I'm seeing the following:

- Update Folder: C:\ProgramData\Mozilla\updates\<Long String> - Application Binary: C:\Program Files\Firefox Developer Edition\firefox.exe - Profile Folder: C:\Users\<my username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<string>.dev-edition-default - Antivirus, Antispyware, and Firewall are all governed by McAfee Endpoint Security (which hasn't been an issue in the past).

I suspect that all of this is due to our enterprise guys modifying the permissions that our "elevated permissions" has... So once I have a better understanding of what things need which permissions, I'll be able to request that the elevated permissions be modified accordingly.

Any insight into this would be appreciated. It's a shame we don't have logs that clearly explain what folders or files lack whatever permissions to better understand bottlenecks like this. Maybe we do have that and I'm just not aware of it?
