i got a new browser, was trying to get it to recognize mailto commands. instead it opens a window to go to a profile (tried it in edge does the same thing).

originally it was finding an old profile i made ages ago, but it insists on making a brand new profile.

the thing is, i don't have a profile, all my files are listed in a custom directory i put into the thunderbird directory (to make it portable). and if i try to make a profile it blanks it all out - settings, structure etc. even if i copied the old files into a new directory and focused the new profile with the old files in it.

and now i'm starting to confuse myself.


basically i think what i need is - the ability to create a profile of my current settings, so i can give that to the browsers. i don't remember having this issue with waterfox. but i'm using something else now. is there a way to do this? take what i have, that isn't in an official profile, and just put it into a profile?

thanks.

Hi. Previously I installed Firefox on Ubuntu with command `sudo apt install firefox`. I'm using Firefox 88.0 for Ubuntu. I want to update it to the latest version. When I try following commands: `sudo apt update` `sudo apt install firefox`

It says "firefox is already the newest version (88.0+build2-0ubuntu0.20.04.1)." But I know version 89 and 90 are released.

I attached "About Firefox" window. There is no update button.

Attempting to patch a corporate template (reason why the version is so old) and when using any later ESR installer with the -ms parameters the old version remains.

The installer returns a 0 exit code when done through our scripting. However it never actually installs.

Being ESR there are no logs.

When you manually install everything goes fine. The scripting handles elevating permissions, we use the same functionality across the enterprise so we know this should not be the issue.

However, and this is the odd part, if we "inject" a new installer in our scripting it will install if done without any other actions. However, for production support we have many other third party app updates.

I was leaning towards app conflicts (maybe handle locks on required libs etc) but after much testing, there are no conflicts.

I am at a loss. Any thoughts?

I have an old PC desktop which I would like to replace with a newer model. I want to get a used one with Windows 7 on it. I know Windows 7 is no longer supported but I have a lot of old software that I use, some not often, and have no desire to purchase new software. I was told that I could not download Firefox onto a newer PC with Windows 7. Is this true? I do have a laptop with Windows 10 that I use for on line ordering, etc. I like the desktop as it has a decent keyboard and mouse.

On one computer I have deleted everything from Firefox including the folders within Apps Roaming except for one folder. There in one folder "41A66E7EE5E1" within Profiles which I cannot delete. It holds the files prefs.js and sessionCheckpoints.json which were created at 20/02/2021 and I cannot delete those.

My new installation is dated 24/07/2021.

There is nothing in the properties of those two files to suggest an issue. I do find however that when I seek to change the Property/Security to Administrator (I should be able to do that) I receive a dialog box that "the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable".

Please advise on how I address this.

When I was using version 88.x, Firefox had not crashed for years. Then all of a sudden, Firefox would crash several times a day. I looked and Firefox had updated me to ver 89.0. But I let it ride. Then Firefox about a month ago, Firefox stsrted to crash EVERY DAY. Then one day it crashed EIGHT TIMES IN A ROW and I mean when I hit RESTART, IT WOULD CRASH. I tried to revert to rel 88 but Mozilla WILL NOT ALLOW US TO REVERT BACK TO A PREVIOUS VERSION. When you do, the PROFILE gives you TWO OPTIONS: 'EXIT or CREATE A NEW PROFILE.' Certainly you do not want to CREATE A NEW PROFILE as you will LOSE, your history, add-ons, Bookmarks, EVERYTHING and you see a WHITE Firefox screen with nothing. So I choose EXIT and tried to put up with the CRAPPY ver 89. BUT FIREFOX KEPT CRASHING. TODAY IT CRASHED SIX TIMES IN A ROW......When I checked the VERSION, YOU HAD UPGRADED TO VER 91.0b6 (64-bit) AND IT IS NO BETTER.

WHAT IN THE HECK IS GOING ON. I DO NOT WANT TO LEARN CHROME OR EDGE AS I HAVE USED FIREFOX SINCE VERSION 1.0.

DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO GO BACK AND KEEP YOUR OLD PROFILE, FLACKY OR NOT AS THAT IS BETTER THAN 'RESTARTING' FIREFOX ALL THE TIME.

MY VERSION 88 NEVER FAILED.

I have just upgraded to Firefox 17 and found that Norton 360 "Login Assistant" (formally named Identity Safe) no longer works. It does not fill in the username and password fields. It worked very well and did all the right things when I was using Firefox 16. There is probably a quick fix but in the meantime I have had to revert to version 16. Looking forward to the problem being resolved.
