Every time I start Firefox, it tells me it is installing updates and will restart shortly. Why is this happening to version 88.0, which is supposed to be the latest version. It is an endless cycle.

I also use Ninite to maintain application updates. It tells me Firefox is running (although is definitely NOT) and refuses to update it.

Hi, how can I open a local html file with firefox 86 on android 9? It's like firefox no longer registers itself as a valid program/association to open html files.

What I've tried so far: 1) If I type file:/// in the URL bar, nothing happens. It works on Opera. 2) If I go to a file manager, select an html file, and click "Open with", firefox doesn't show up; Chrome and Opera do. 3) If I go to the android settings > applications > firefox > associations, firefox shows no associated file types at all.

The HTML language isn't only used on the Internet, it's also used for local documents, please allow us to use firefox to view our local html files.

Unable to make Firefox the default browser via GPO on Windows 10

I'm using these instructions for making the FireFox browser the default browser via GPO: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/make-firefox-enterprise-default-browser#fire… (funda kabanzi)

I'm using these instructions for making the FireFox browser the default browser via GPO: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/make-firefox-enterprise-default-browser#firefox-enterprise:win10: and I'm unable to do so successfully.

When I perform the steps what happens is that no browser becomes the default. Trying to open an html document causes Windows 10 to ask the user to pick which browser they would like to be the default web browser. I can choose Firefox at that point but if I reboot or do a gpupdate /force, the default app for browser goes back to not having one selected.

I can use the same steps to a file at the same network location to make Google Chrome the default browser without issue, but when I switch back to trying to make Firefox the default the same problem returns. I've tried the rapid release version and the ESR version. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox.

I feel like the issue is related to the default associations xml file from the instructions which states ProgId="FirefoxHTML . If you look in the windows registry, "FirefoxHTML" is not listed as an option for either of these keys: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\.html\OpenWithProgIds Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\.htm\OpenWithProgIds

If you go here: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\Firefox-308046B0AF4A39CB\Capabilities\URLAssociations

Instead of "FirefoxHTML" it lists "FirefoxURL-308046B0AF4A39CB" for the http and https url associations.

Does anyone have a solution to this problem or another way to make Firefox the default browser for multiple machines remotely?

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Whenever I play a video on amazon prime thru FF 88 it is SD. When I go to the options for video it says HD is unavailable even if best is selected. When the video first plays the HD icon will come up for about a second, but faded, than go away right after. Usually when it does that it becomes solid white and shows HD at 1080. I'm using Win 10 64-bit Pro 20H2.

When I try watching the same videos in Chrome I have no issues and the content plays fine in HD 1080p.

I tried removing all history, refreshing FF, uninstalling and re-installing my NVIDIA drivers but same issue. I am on 88.0. No add ons or themes. Just default FF after refresh. Nothing helps.

I have seen other reports of widevine crashing but I dont have that issue. FF just wont play Amazon video in HD anymore.

Edit:

After trying some things and completely uninstalling firefox from system and all folders I finally got Amazon to play HD 1080p content again, but only a short while.

For some reason on refreshed or completely new installs of FF 88 amazon would have issues and only play SD. Even if all folders were deleted before install. When I installed the previous version of FF to 87 content was once again playing back at HD 1080p. I than updated to 88 and it was ok but only for a bit.

Even though FF 87 installed and updated widevine, FF version 88 would update it again a short while later but the version numbers of widevine (4.10.2209.1) stayed the same. Whatever version 88 is doing to widevine it seems to cause a conflict preventing Amazon from playing videos in HD content.

Edit 2:

From my other computer which had not updated to 88 yet had widevine version 4.10.1582. I took all those files and replaced the ones in the folder for 4.10.2209.1. I have updates disabled for widevine now and Amazon is playing HD 1080p once again with no issues. So whatever the update did with widevine it is definitely causing a conflict with playing back HD 1080p content on Amazon Prime video.

I have a problem with enabling two-step authentication for my Mozilla account. There have been several questions regarding issues with two-step authentication, but none of them applies to my case, so I started another one.

When I try to enable 2SA, there are seemingly no problems. When I scan the QR code and enter the 6-digit security code, I don't get the "invalid two-step authentication code" message. I do get the 8 10-digit recovery codes. After I enter one of them I get a prompt saying "Two-step authentication enabled" (see attachment), but nothing else happens. It seems like the process is stuck here and isn't completed.

I have tried setting 2SA from my profile settings (https://accounts.firefox.com/settings) too, but when I logout and login again, it says Not Set.

I wouldn't normally use 2SA at all if it hasn't been made mandatory for logging into Add-ons (addons.mozilla.org). Now, I'm locked out of my Add-ons account and can't access my extensions!
