Hi,

It was OK for me to download file from a link before, but since a while ago, when I single click on any link (ex., Firefox Installer) it showed nothing and nothing happened (Normally I think dialog about if open or save/when to save should pop up). I also try other way to open the link then: 1. If I try to open a new tab on link, then a empty tab was opened (as attached image). 2. If I right click the link and click "Save Link As..." then it will pop up the save folder selection dialog.

I hope to have any suggestion to fix this issue. Thanks in advance for any support.

The installation of Nightly caused major problems in Firefox. (Windows 10 PC) I want BOTH Nightly and Firefox on my computer; however my Firefox profile became corrupted in the process. Things like: the Bookmarks not appearing despite all the settings for them being correct; Firefox crashing when importing bookmarks. Fed up, I decided I wanted a completely new installation of Firefox. I could use my sync to my Firefox account to get most of what I needed back easily... I thought. I don't want to detail every step, they are too many. The important part, I think, is this. Installing Firefox, I need for it to create a new profile. Beause the old one had NUMEROUS corruptions, I got rid of it, thinking that Firefox can create a new profile when installing the software from scratch. But guess what? It will not do that. THE PROBLEM is that Nightly and Firefox share the same Roaming/Profiles folder, which means that the .ini files contain references to BOTH profiles in a single file. Profiles.ini contains both. Installs.ini contains references to both. If I delete - or try to alter the contents of - either .ini file, then Nightly loses its profile as well. I have restored those two files to where Nightly now starts up normally, thank god. But there is NOTHING I can do so far to get the new installation of Firefox to start up without trying to find the now missing profile which was corrputed to the point that it was more trouble than it was worth. It used to be possible to install Firefox and make whatever fixes were necessary before starting up the browser. Now it is not; it starts up automatically, or not at all. WHY is the setup designed this way? Really large error on the part of Mozilla developers to put the profiles info and installs info into the same file, so that upon uninstalling Firefox, you must either find the old corrupt profile again, or start from scratch with BOTH Nightly and Firefox. We waste SO MANY HOURS trying to work around the careless / thoughtless things that developers do! Please can someone help me? For now I have Nightly, but it looks like I will never have Firefox again after using it and its ancestors for 25 years. Thanks in advance!

Firefox asks me to download an update multiple times a day. When I click to initiate the update I am taken to a marketing page headed with the VPN and no download happens. It has become very irritating. How do I complete the download and stop the constant interruptions?

I added the Mozilla VPN but that wouldn't communicate with my printer. So out of frustration, I uninstalled firefox all together. I then went to the mozilla site (on Edge) and downloaded the app. It completed the installation but when the browser opens it doesn't do anything. I can't move around or open any sites. It's just frozen on New Tab and nothing works. I can't even sign in - I can click on the sign in button but it doesn't do anything.

When I tried downloading the app from chrome, I got the attached text box and the same general result. Firefox opened but didn't work.

I've spent hours today trying to just get the regular browser working (forget about the VPN) and I'm frustrated. I have yet to find a way to call a support desk who can help me in "real time".

Thank you to anyone who can solve this for me and get me back to working in Firefox again (and able to print). Katie

I use Scenesource to download items of interest, after scrolling down to find what I want, the settings do not allow me to get to the last page I started from and goes back to the first page. I know that I found the setting before but at my age I cant seem to get to it anymore. Can someone tell me how to get that back?
