Hi there, I have just had to upgrade and get a new Pc and it has windows 8.1 which is awful. I only like to use firefox as my browser. I have tried to install it but it won't work. I cannot find any up to date information on the web as to whether firefox can be installed with Windows 8.1 I have a 64 bit operating system. Is there a way to do this? Or if not does anyone know if it will be available soon, or i'll have to use chrome which i don't like as much. I don't have much technical knowledge to do complicated things. I wonder if it works well on Windows 8 if i try and downgrade..... Not sure i know how to do that/ Any help be appreciated. thanks

Hello there, Mozilla........)

I have just checked my add-ons and I have been told to update my Shockwave Flash. I clicked on 'update now' and it sent me to a page where it details potential problems with the version I have and to update to version 14.0.0175 which (I think and hope) it did update. However, when I restarted my computer, I checked again and it still is saying 'update now'. As I will honestly admit, I am not all that 'tech savvy' and am not sure what I should do next. I would be extremely grateful if someone could get back to me with some advice on what I should do.

Yours sincerely

How To Make mozilla.cfg, override.ini, all-companyname.js, Files To Work Once And For All For All Users

I'm currently trying to apply a fix to the firefox browser (version 23.0.1) on over 250 computers. Setting default webpages, disabling annoying prompts like the default browser and importing bookmarks, and erasing the history on shutdown, or startup. This is very easily done modifying the pref.js file, but I will not edit that file, it's out of the question. Another FF update will erase or overwrite all of my modifications.

I run a computer lab in the university that is locked down using a Net Support School console. You don't need to look that up. Basically all websites are restricted except the ones the ones I whitelist. The websites we use have extensive API's for JS, CSS, Java, PHP, etc... We utilize technology in order for students to use graphing calculators, video's, and taking module test from these white-listed websites, like Pearson, or Aleks. Now with that said, cookies, and stored profile history become a problem, and on some day's up to 25% of the students using the computers need their entire history deleted in order for a page to load. I think I fixed this problem permanently by whitelisting backend sites importing plugins, and API's etc, that I found from the developers console. Whatever. What I've learned from all of this is that Firefox can be very customizable utilizing the "...\Mozilla Firefox\mozilla.cfg" and the "...\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\prefs\all-companyname.js" (or custom.js) The problem, is no matter what I try I can't get these to work. The closest I got was here:

http://www.intrntpirate.com/?p=615

Again, even that ^^ didn't work. I followed these directions to a "T". What is wrong with the above information provided in the link? Why is firefox making harder and harder for us to optimize it for massive deployments across a corporation and a university? I'm not going to do any fancy hacks to avoid the main issue. I need mozilla.cfg, and the all-companyname.js, and the override.ini files to work, if and only if they are still relevant.

These are what my files look like so far:

name: all-lmc.js
location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\
pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");
pref("browser.startup.homepage", "https://(some url)");

name: override.ini
location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\
[XRE]
EnableProfileMigrator=false

name: mozilla.cfg
location: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\
//
lockPref("privacy.sanitize.sanitizeOnShutdown", true);
lockPref("privacy.sanitize.promptOnSanitize", false);
lockPref("browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser", false);
lockPref("toolkit.telemetry.enabled", false);
lockPref("toolkit.telemetry.prompted", 2);
lockPref("toolkit.telemetry.rejected", true);

I've tried using, and not using, the automatic mozilla configurator. I've tried changing lockPref to pref. Nothing works. Not the override.ini, not the all-lmc.js, and not the mozilla.cfg. I've wasted hours reading through blogs of experts telling us to modify files that don't exist, or beating around the bush. I'm done researching. If you have the answer or want to help me figure this out just remember to keep it simple. Please. I ultimately want to package all the config files, with a how to, in a zip folder onto our shared drive. To have FF customized and ready to deploy to different departments across campus.

Please can someone tell me why it's so hard to find an offline installer? I googled it and searched the forums and most of the links either don't work or send me to get online installers.

Also why don't they put 2 download links on the main page? 1 for download online installer and 1 for offline installer?

After about half an hour of searching i found a proper link to an offline installer that works. I wanted to thank brookspd who posted a question 2 years ago and one of the moderators responded. His hope was that his post would help and it helped immensly.

I understand that the forum is huge and there are many posts, is there any way of deleting all the posts of offline installers that don't actually help and put this one up? https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ , it's the only one that i've personally found that actually works. I'm sure i'm not the only fustrated one here.

How to switch from 64-bit to 32-bit Firefox on Windows 10 Home

I want to uninstall FF 64-bit and install FF 32-bit (because I want to use addons, like ADBlocker Plus, and they won't install - or worse install but not show up - in FF 64-bit).

1) I go to https://www.mozilla.org, which becomes https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/ . I click "Firefox" and I am at https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/new/ .

2) I click "Firefox for Other Platforms and Languages" and I get a dialog where I click "Windows 32-bit". I get "Firefox Installer.exe".

3) I close and uninstall FF 64-bit from Control Panel.

4) I run that exe and after the install process I do have FF again, but it's still the 64-bit version. It has even remembered my session and bookmarks and I am even still logged in to sites I was logged in to before uninstalling (those for which I had asked to be kept logged in of course).

I tried that same process many times, by downloading FF with FF itself and with other browsers. I have even unistalled a "Mozilla Maintenance Service" I found installed in Control Panel, in case it was it that was forcing the wrong version to be installed, but no.

I also tried to click "Available languages" in the dialog at point 2, clicked on "Download" at row "English (British)" and column "Windows" (NOT the "Windows 64-bit" at its right), that gave me "Firefox Setup 55.0.2.exe", but this installer too produces the same result (I end up with the 64-bit version again).

No error messages ever appear at any point.

I simply can't seem to be able to replace FF 64-bit with FF 32-bit. I really don't understand what I am doing wrong. Any ideas ?

My home connection is dial-up and to download a 40MB "upgrade" solution would take about 2 hours. I use a public computer with a high-speed connection to download install packages of all the software I use. I can save these packages to a flash drive to bring home to run on my computer. The Mozilla "upgade" solution tries to upgrade the public computer. I do not get a transportable install package. Of course this does me no good.

Also, if I have a standalone installation package, I can keep it incase I need to re-install, or if I want to share Firefox with someone else.

Please send me a link to a standalone, transportable installation package that I can download.

Thank you in advance.

I have seen this question already posed in the forums about updating the latest version of Firefox, however I am not trying to update the version, I am trying to download the latest version of Firefox to Windows through Chrome. I click the download button on the Mozilla website and I extract the file. At this point the computer asks me if I want to save the file or run the file. I have tried to just run the file and the computer shoots out this message "You may not have the necessary permissions to use all the features of the program you are about to run. You may run this program as a different user or continue to run the program as the currant user". The window gives me two options, "Run as currant user" (which closes everything when I choose it), and "Run as administrator" (which leaves me with a user name and password which are always wrong). I can't download Firefox and have tried alot of stuff. I feel like it is a security setting in my computer that needs to be adjusted but I don't know enough to start randomly tinkering around.

As in all Forums... PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!

Whenever I go to download a file, the 'do this automatically for files like this from now on' box is greyed out. I have scoured the internet looking for a solution and just about every one of them is either severely outdated or does not fix my problem. I have reset my Firefox more than I can count and yet it does not seem to fix my problem. It used to work just fine, but it no longer does and it is very annoying and frustrating. I have even tried to completely uninstall it and reinstall it to my computer and that doesn't fix anything.

Is there any sort of way to fix this problem? Firefox is my browser of choice and I'd prefer not to have to start using another one. I know it may seem trivial because it's just one extra step, but when you're doing it a bunch of times in a row like I do, it can get quite bothersome.

Thank you.

I got a new computer with Windows 10 and installed Firefox 40.0.2. Even with this fresh install, I've been experiencing a very frustrating number of crashes.

I can consistently trigger a crash by trying to inspect an element or by trying to install Firebug.

To resolve the issue I have tried:

- making sure that Adobe Flash/Shockwave is disabled - disabling the NoScript add-on - opening Firefox with a new, fresh profile (even though I did not import a profile from my old Windows 7 machine so the profile should have already been pretty "fresh")

Here are my crash reports for the last 1/2 hour: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-cc02b456-7a7a-4386-b30f-014422150823 https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-c25dbcb8-489a-4870-9a85-626c22150823 https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-ce261672-72f5-484b-a3e4-0380c2150823 https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-085e4118-2160-4f8e-9f2d-43e402150823 https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/bp-8cbef911-fb77-4c4f-b3a8-316d92150823
