I'm currently on 73.0b5 (64-bit) on Windows 10. I'm trying to use the "Update to 73.0 Beta 11" button from the "About" screen to update the browser. This normally works but today, it's having problems and I suspect it's due to our corporate policies being changed around.

I'm going to submit a request to our enterprise idiot to have this fixed in their whitelists, etc. but before I can do that, I need to know what kinds of permissions to request. What's responsible for the update process and what folders need to have which permissions for this to work?

Because right now, pressing the "Update to 73.0 Beta 11" button results in Firefox downloading the update but when it tries to install it, it fails with the "Update failed. Download the latest version" message in the "About" screen (when it was working last week without a single hitch).

According to my about:support details, I'm seeing the following:

- Update Folder: C:\ProgramData\Mozilla\updates\<Long String> - Application Binary: C:\Program Files\Firefox Developer Edition\firefox.exe - Profile Folder: C:\Users\<my username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<string>.dev-edition-default - Antivirus, Antispyware, and Firewall are all governed by McAfee Endpoint Security (which hasn't been an issue in the past).

I suspect that all of this is due to our enterprise guys modifying the permissions that our "elevated permissions" has... So once I have a better understanding of what things need which permissions, I'll be able to request that the elevated permissions be modified accordingly.

Any insight into this would be appreciated. It's a shame we don't have logs that clearly explain what folders or files lack whatever permissions to better understand bottlenecks like this. Maybe we do have that and I'm just not aware of it?

After a recent update I noticed my firefox account stopped working and in the preferences page I started seeing the message that "Your browser is managed by you organization".

I did some research and found that these settings (identity.fxaccounts.enabled:false in about:config) are managed through a policies.json file found in /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Resources/distribution in Mac. But there is no distribution folder in the above path.

The problem persists even after uninstalling and reinstalling firefox and refreshing profiles.

PS: My computer is not managed by an organization.

I installed Nightly Firefox 74.0a1 and I am still able to sideload extension. But based on this article https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2019/10/31/firefox-to-discontinue-sideloaded-extensions/, sideloading will not be supported in Firefox 74. I tested both of sideloading methods (https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/publish/distribute-sideloading/?utm_source=blog.mozilla.org&utm_medium=post&utm_campaign=2019-sideloaded-discontinued) and the extension was able to be sideloaded successfully in both ways. Does anyone know the reason?

For many years now I have used the beta channel. At the end of last week I checked for updates and received 73.0b11. I was already on 73.0 beta, probably b10.

Since that update I am unable to edit the contents of the address bar unless I launch a Private Window, where the problem doesn't occur.

I have tried using the "Restart with Add-ons Disabled..." option from the Help menu but the problem remains.

I am running on Windows 10, 64-bit, [Version 10.0.18363.592], with all the latest Microsoft updates.

I have been a Linux and Firefox user for many years. Whenever I wanted to migrate my profile to a new Linux installation, all I had to do was copy the contents of the old Linux installation profile folder to the new Linux installation profile folder (No matter that they had different names). Now I am trying to do it from Kubuntu 18.04 (Firefox 73.0 from PPA) to Kubuntu 20.04 (Firefox 73.0). I am doing what is explained in this guide: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles

But after doing that when I start Firefox in Kubuntu 20.04, a message appears warning that my profile data may get corrupted and therefore to protect my data it gives me only two options, starting Firefox with a new empty profile or quit firefox. So I am not able to perform the migration. How can I migrate my old profile in ofline mode? I don't want anything that requires having an account or uploading my data to some cloud thing (which I think what that Sync thing is). That is, I want to do the migration in offline mode, locally, on my machine. Thank you.

I log into a secure site that grabs information from other secure sites which requires setting up passwords, authentication and ETC. Some these links need to be refreshed from time to time and requires an series of actions on my part to re-establish these automated links. The issue is when I try to re-establish the link, the first page will launch and then if I hit any key the link closes immediately. I think there is a security setting issue that is preventing me from making the appropriate re-linking procedures. Please note: This process work using Firefox at time however no longer works. I tried re-establish these links using Google and it worked.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

When I started Firefox on my laptop (Windows 10 1909) this morning, Firefox noted that it was not the default browser. I clicked Set as Default, was taken to Settings and there was no default browser listed. When I clicked the button to set the default, Firefox was not listed (only Chrome, IE and Edge were there). I installed 73.0 last week but have been using my desktop most of the time since so I'm not sure when this changed. Firefox does appear in the installed apps list and is working normally when I open it. Did Microsoft do something that prevents Firefox from being the default browser? Is there another mechanism I can use to make Firefox the default?

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

This is a direct question as to whether Firefox saves any user NON DELETEABLE information. It appears Chrome does. These are not cookies or history as I know it. Presumably after Chrome has uploaded to a server somewhere it is then deleted or perhaps there is a timed or storage limit delete. The Chrome explanation is that "it makes the user experience faster and better". More likely is that google is increasingly being denied cookie & tracking data because of privacy addons or public opinion, they have a new way to get most of the same information. They just call it a "profile" rather than a cookie.

Firefox did an automatic update and totalled my old Firefox, or so I thought. I deleted Old Firefox. I downloaded new Firefox. Old Firefox reappeared with bookmarks, but New Firefox also appeared without bookmarks. I am completely mystified as to what I should do. Delete new Firefox and continue to use old Firefox? Or is there some way to install new Firefox and keep my old bookmarks on which I rely? I find this unfortunate migration disturbing and am wondering what went wrong and what else is wrong with new Firefox and the migration process. Thanks to anyone who can help me on this.
