"Firefox needs to download font…" sudden request that didn‘t let me skip

Hi, I‘m not sure if I selected the right topic for my question but I can‘t find an answer to my query anywhere, so here goes:

When I opened Firefox on my Mac today (all up-to-date), a pop-up request by Firefox (cf. attached picture) showed up: "Firefox needs to download the font "Weibei SC". "Weibei SC" is 17,4 MB." with the options "Skip" and "Download".

Puzzled by this odd request, I wanted to skip it, but anytime I clicked skip the window would pop up again. I never clicked on download and I actually closed and reopened the browser, without having it show up again. I even restarted my device and reopened Firefox but it didn‘t show up again.

Now, I want ro believe that there is nothing to worry about, that it was a software blunder of some sort and that maybe normally it just installs fonts in the background without me knowing. But for the sake of my own peace of mind, I‘d feel more comfortable if someone who knows the software better than I do, explain to me what this was or might have been, and hopefully that it was nothing harmful.

Thank you!

How to downgrade a Firefox install on old iMac (late 2009) when I can't open browser?

Hi, the turbotax website forced me to update Firefox and since I did, I am no longer able to open the browser at all. The error message reads, "You can't use this version of the application "Firefox" with this version of OS X. You have OS X 10.11.6. The application requires OS X 10.12 or later." Unfortunately, from what I have read, I can't get that update that on my iMac (21.5inch, late 2009) OS X El Capitan Version 10.11.6. Is there any way to downgrade the Firefox install? I can't even see what previous version of Firefox I had before because I can't open the browser anymore. If anyone can help I would be super grateful. Thanks in advance!

Hi,

My computer was on during the week-end and when I came back home I noticed we had a couple of power outages. Computer restarted automatically (Win 10 22h2) and when I launched Firefox, it started as brand new with all my addons gone and none of the previous session restored (I had 4 Firefox browsers opened with each 20+ tabs opened).

I have tried looking at C:\Users\MYUSER\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles but found nothing of interest. Where is everything and how can I restore everything I had ?

I even tried Troubleshooting mode and downgrading to a former version of Firefox (126.0.1 64 bits).

Thanks,

Hi everyone,

I run an online barber supply store called Magnus Supply (https://magnussupply.com/) where we offer a variety of products including clippers, trimmers, shavers, grooming products, accessories, and sanitation supplies. I'm always looking for ways to improve the user experience on our website and streamline our e-commerce operations.

Can anyone recommend browser extensions that could help with:

Enhancing website performance and speed. Improving user engagement and retention. Simplifying the checkout process. Better tracking and analyzing customer behavior. Ensuring data security and privacy for our customers. I’m particularly interested in extensions that work well with Firefox, but suggestions for other browsers are also welcome. Your insights and experiences would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance!

Firefox won't update to version 127 on macOS 10.15.7

I am running macOS 10.15.7 and Firefox won't upgrade past ESR v. 115 to the "regular" version 127.

Alternately, downloading the Firefox v. 127 installer and running won't update ESR v. 115 nor will it import bookmarks or data from the previous version ESR 115. Firefox v. 127 installs and starts as if I am a new user without any update or import option so that all previous settings, passwords, and data from ESR v. 115 are lost.

Is there a work-around for the upgrade to keep continuity, settings, bookmarks, and data when migrating to v. 127? Thanks!

I have chosen to not auto-update the browser because it interferes with my work. The precise setting is called "Allow Firefox to" "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" (screenshot attached). However, this setting is not honoured. Every month, the browser auto-updates and forces a browser restart for me to continue working (screenshot attached). For 126->127, there was in fact no notification to update and the update happened automatically in the background with a restart forced upon me. What's the point of having this setting if it's not going to be honoured?

Dear fellows,

I did lost all history data after a previous update, my user got corrupted data and somehow I did manage to import the info into Edge browser. To my surprise after I reinstalled a clean Firefox, it only imported back 3 months of browsing history. Topically, average user keep a computer 3-4 years.. I don't know from where developers came with the idea of limiting to such a shot interval. I have thousands of browsing history links from more that 10 years kept and I need them all.

Tried to increase the number from about:config, but there is an option only for Chrome which I never used and always hate :)

I did installed Chrome to convince myself about it's ingenuity, even if it was not necessary. It does have import option only from Microsoft Explorer, no Edge.

If there is a solution for importing a longer period and high number of entries, please share it.

I'm not an IT expert, but I can manage consoles if there is an even deeper option to modify config files.

Thank you in advance!
