All of the files I try to download fail immediately. Even extensions will not download on firefox. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and checked the download location. Downloads work on other browsers such as Chrome fine but nothing will download on Firefox.

I recently downloaded the new version of Firefox and dragged it to the application folder. When it asked if I wanted to retain or replace the existing version I clicked replace. Then I found my computer is too old to run the new version. Can I still get and download the previous firefox browser version?

I updated firefox and when trying to open it received an "EntryPoint Not Found" error.

The procedure entry point sqlite3_backup_finish could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\xul.dll

Click okay then get the message

"couldn't load XPCOM."

It would appear I need to delete firefox and reinstall, unless a method exists to revert.

If I delete and reinstall how do I retain bookmarks, history and open tabs, etc.? I need to keep my tabs, history and bookmarks.

About a week ago I started getting these update error messages stating "Update available - Firefox couldn't update automatically. Download the new version". I've also tried clicking "learn more" on the error message but it's a dead link. Going into the settings for updates I am set to auto update, but when I manually check for updates it says "Failed to check for updates".

The help article on this issue simply tells you to download and manually reinstall Firefox, but I'm having to do this nearly every day. I work in IT myself so I know a "bandaid" workaround when I see one. Is there a solution to this issue?

Hello

since version 119 of Firefox a download behaves siometimes different. The directory and "Ask before save" are still valid. But sometimes Firefox start to save in the directory without asking. Why behaves version 119 sometimes different in comparison with previous versions like 118?

Kind regards

Sometimes, firefox will download the same file twice (or more) when I still have it.

I do NOT want to turn off automatic downloading.

I am asking, how to make firefox check if the file already exists before downloading.

I understand that sometimes you willl download multiple files from a website, but, even though they are all called "image.jpg" they are all in fact different pictures.

So, I think the solution to this is, when downloading a file, firefox should check if the file already exists.

If it does exist, start the download for file(1) as usual, but ask the user

"A file with this name already exists, are you sure you want to download it again ?"

And the choices should be

Yes (download continues) yes, and do not ask again for this filename (download continues) No (download is interrupted and partial file is deleted)

New to me Surface3 pro tablet. Have FF on my desktop, want it on the tablet and synced with the desktop. Download and install were fine up until i went to log in on the tablet. I mis spelled the email address and did not notice until the codes never arrived. I cant find a way to get FF to "forget" what i entered. I uninstalled hoping that would do it and deleted the FF old data file it saved on the screen, but no matter what i do it keeps coming back to the old misspelled entry and does not let me log out or change it. What to do! Tablet is running W10 Pro Send this from my desktop also running W10Pro

I have been desperately trying to get off Chrome and onto Firefox and I simply cannot. Over the past month I have tried at least a dozen times to install Firefox and migrate, to absolutely no avail whatsoever. Any time I "launch" Firefox, I simply get a flicker of a black (or sometimes white) window, and then nothing. Firefox immediately disappears off the taskbar after a mere flicker. It doesn't even show up in task manager during this process. The browser absolutely refuses to launch, period. I have tried uninstalling Chrome. I have tried reinstalling Firefox. I have tried restarting my PC. I have tried updating Windows. I have tried booting Firefox in Safe Mode. I have tried running Firefox as Administrator. There is no error message. There is no bug report. There is no Windows alert. I have scanned the PC for malware at least five times, it's completely clean. I've tried "refreshing" Firefox in the uninstall menu. I've looked through every existing support article known to man at least five times over. I've tried checking my antivirus software, and I've tried checking for files that can reportedly keep the browser from running, none of which I have on the PC. I have tried simply launching the damn browser more times than I can count. The result never changes or deviates from Firefox simply flickering for a nanosecond before crashing. Please help me find a way to just launch the browser.

Hi,

it seems to me that there are quite a few questions in the forum about the backgound update process. It has bugged me for a long time that my Firefox would every now and then just refuse to open a new page and force me to restart.

Only now did I learn that this changes when de-selecting the (recommended) "automatically install updates" option. The wording used does not make clear that automatically installing updates sometimes renders Firefox inoperable until a restart. I would love to see at least a "learn more" link there? I chose "automatically" but then was cursing every time Firefox refused to open a new page in the middle of my work. Then I failed to connect this to the choice I had made weeks or months back.

install and migration/Update Firefox to the latest release https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-release suggests that on Windows there is a way to have automatic updates without forcing a restart in the middle of the workflow? I assume this is through some little helper process, which perhaps is not popular on MacOS.

But: would it not be possible to at least point to these options from the message that says that Firefox needs to restart so people know they have a choice? Even better would be to have a "not now" button but I realize there might be technical reasons why we cannot have that.

Only with Firefox (default) and Norton 360 My Norton page, the page does not recognize that the Password Manager is already set up and active. The Password Manager button erroneously shows "Set Up", and when pressed the surrounding oval turns blue and nothing else happens - forever! That button should say "Access Vault". Also, he Feature Setup incorrectly shows Password Manager as not being setup when it already is on, active, and functioning in other areas of Norton 360, and surprisingly through the Firefox browser extension NPM button. This apparent MY Norton syncing problem only happens with Firefox, not when using Edge or Chrome.
