Hi, Yesterday I installed a new version of Firefox. And after that I can't run Netflix, Spotify and Viaplay. I can log in but when I want to start a movie or play some music it says that Firefox is installing components to play sound and video - but nothing happens. I have been using Firefox for many years and the programs have always worked - until yesterday after I installed the new version. I'm on a PC using windows. Any tips on how to proceed?

I recently transitioned from windows 10 to elementary os. My preferred download option is to ask me where to save each file. And so when I download something, the file manager opens. BUT when I hover my mouse over the navigation bar (to quickly get out of nested windows or make a new folder), the file manager automatically closes.

what gives? this does not happen in chrome.

I am regularly using the latest version of Firefox but after doing some research online I decided to reinstall an older version of firefox by clicking Firefox 50.1.0.dmg, a file I found in my downloads as well as well as in the applications folders on my mac.

I was amazed to find when I started this older version of firefox fresh off the reinstall that all my tabs from the last time I used it (perhaps as long as three years ago) popped open and all my bookmarks and history were there as well. However this was short-lived because when i closed it and sought to restore the tabs I was unsuccessful and the bookmarks and history were gone too.

I then thought it would be possible to recreate this by using Time Machine and restore Firefox 50.1.0.dmg file from a recent backup but this did not bring back the tabs.

So I was wondering if this was simply a fluke and if not (is there such a thing as a fluke event when it comes to computers?!), why can I not recreate the event using Time Machine?

My daughter installed my computer and everything started as normal 4 days ago. Today when I press the Firefox icon I get told by Google 'server can not be found'. The Firefox Get Started is in the toolbar so I got in that way and went to 'Refresh Firefox' which seemed to work okay but I am still getting the Google 'server can not be found' page. What do I do now?

Okay, so, quick question - I just got a new computer and installed the entire OS (MacOS) directly from my physical backup on . However, Firefox is working quite poorly. It's not loading sites properly, e.g. Facebook, and it won't load pictures on a Danish sales platform - and quite a few other places - most importantly it won't load Tinder profiles to swipe in desktop version. Damn it all to hell!

Also, several of the tabs have a weird, white line under them, and it started blinking with this weird red line in the very top of the browser.

However, if I were to reinstall Firefox altogether, would that delete all my open tabs (of which I have a couple of hundreds)? As per advice from a few geeks, I cleared my entire history to see if it made a difference - alas, the problems continued and multiplied.

If reinstalling and/or refreshing the browser will delete all my tabs - what are my options?

I have a whole slew of tabs I use daily and Firefox is set to reload them whenever I restart Firefox. Now with version 78 it tells me it has to reinstall and won't keep my tabs, in other words I have to waste time setting all 200 of them up again. Several times a day it nags me to update and there is no option to tell it to Shut Up. If Firefox can't be bothered to provide smoother upgrades, I can't be bothered to upgrade.

I downloaded Firefox installer (for version 79.0) on Windows via Edge from here https://www.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/new/ Checksums of the downloaded installer are (calculated by `certutil -hashfile "Path_to_Firefox_installer" SHA256` and `certutil -hashfile "Path_to_Firefox_installer" SHA512` in Windows command line):

SHA256 caceeacec49a4d4cac94bb48266adb28bc53515345619e336c26488846717a56

SHA512 0c1ffcd219c0c788ac01064bfbb800a95990111539e7ed20c7e9b279c7502e59cef1c7b0274f57cba71bd3bf2493d579b9f7157346ad9a0821913ecba6558e02

they do not match any from https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA256SUMS and https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA512SUMS

When I downloaded the same installer on Windows via Firefox checksums were different than before (calculated by the same command)

SHA256 bc4dd6ce1b53b194bc95ef908278f670494dd5fb782eea2da563098e58a2db3d

they match "win32/pl/Firefox Installer.exe" on "https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA256SUMS" and "https://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/SHA512SUMS".

What is strange the signatures of the files are identical. I downloaded installer two more times (with restarting computer in between, why not) and it gave me exact same hashes depending only on what browser i used for downloading them. Is it a known problem when downloading firefox via Edge? Is it known why this happens? Does this problem occur to you? Is Firefox downloaded via Edge safe to install?

Thanks

Hello all!

I recently logged in to Firefox so I could have access to all of my bookmarks and log in credentials that I had on another computer - but when I logged in, it said it was synced, but nothing has populated. I've had to swap out computers a couple times in the past and never had this issue. I logged in and shortly after my bookmarks and passwords populated to my account. Any idea how I can get my bookmarks and passwords? I'm hopelessly lost without them! 

I appreciate your help!

Today was about the 3rd or 4th time in the last few months that I boot up the PC and find that the Firefox exe has disappeared. So frustrating. Yes I can and do re-install, but it's 30-45 mins each time. Does anyone know what might be causing this. I am very careful with downloads and use only licensed software. Could it be the VIPRE anti-virus/firewall? Running on Windows 10 - everything is up to date and usually very stable.
