I want to transfer a Firefox profile from my old computer to a new computer. The online info has been distinctly unhelpful. I copied the profile from my old computer put it in the Profiles folder on my new computer but FIREFOX does not notice it. What is the problem?

Mac 12.0.1 User here. While attempting to upgrade from 94.01 to 94.02(and now seriously wondering why) I clicked on the downloaded .dmg file to open it and I was informed that there was no app capable of doing so. Then just to be mean, the file name was changed from awholebunchofletters&#s.dmg to awholebunchofletters&#s.dmg.part

...and not by me.

i wish there was a "Comments" section on https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/mac/ so i could tell people "NEVER use this!!"

i tried last week, downloaded and installed. The installation process, after unpacking the download, tried to install a "helper application". Popped up a dialog box asking for an admin userid+passwd. (even though i was obviously already running as an admin user... because i was in the middle of doing the install.) This was not an iOS dialog box from Apple, and it didn't have an option for scanning my fingerprint; this was something the "helper app" was doing on its own. Well i gave it my userid+password, and it went on to say the installation failed, and bombed out with no Firefox installed on my machine. Now, for all i know, my credentials are out there, God only knows where. So i had to go change my passwd on all of my machines.  :(

Windows 10 - Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon This fall after an update attempt, Firefox started trying to update every time it was started. Deleted Update files in Program Data. FF would restart normally one time. Update data files were always replaced and the update on every startup continued - over and over and over. Tried refreshing FF- same thing. Uninstalled FF this AM and tried to reinstall when I get the following error:

XULRunner Error: Platform version "94.0.2" is not compatible with minVersion >= 94.0.1 maxVersion <= 94.0.1

No FF - HELP!

As the subject says, my download speeds are painfully slow (~200KB/s) and they have been for a while. My download speed is ~85Mbps and I use Ubuntu 20.04.

Installing a download manager extension only improved the speed to ~300KB/s (I tried Multithreaded Download Manager. I also tried increasing the number of threads in preferences to no effect).

The problem has persisted over time and across multiple restarts. This problem does not persist in other applications (Steam, for example).Neither disabling my VPN or running sudo UFW disable affected the speed (didn't restart because UFW disable doesn't require a restart [I think] and due to the above paragraph).

All solutions I have found have been related only to Windows users, hence why I am asking this even though there is a plethora of threads on this same issue. Any responses and help is appreciated!

Hello,

I've been having problems downloading the firefox browser, as it seems that I have to do it multiple times before it can be installed properly. I tend to get the disk image, which populates on my screen as an image icon. This usually occurs several times before I see the actual application file within my download files. Tonight I am having this problem again, as I noticed that the browser was no longer on my computer, which prompted me to download again from Mozilla's own site. However, I keep getting the disk image, with a circle and cross through the circle over the actual firefox icon which is supposed to be dragged into the folder and then installed. Not sure why it keeps showing up as an image (disk), and not the actual application? Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Today I was forced to erase my hard disk and reinstate / reinstall the entire operating system on my MacBook Pro [from my back-up] ... in doing so I was upgraded to Firefox v94 [from Firefox v92] and all my bookmarks and folders and my reading list were lost ... btw I had no option, no alternative was offered ...

Is there some way of salvaging the bookmarks, folders and reading list from v92 and importing them to v94?

I thank you kindly in advance for your advice

I have used Firefox for a number of years. Something has changed on Windows 10 or Firefox. I am no longer able to download bank statements (multiple banks) to PDF for viewing and saving statements. I can do it on Microsoft Edge, so maybe Microsoft is trying to force move to Edge. I can't use Firefox if i cannot download files from internet to PDF documents. Tried looking at settings and can't figure out anything.

Help! After many, many, happy, trouble-free years with FF (thanks folks) I just updated to FF 94.0. FF 94 is failing to use my saved logins, is silently failing to save new logins, seems to have forgotten my master password and won't let me set a new master password (which is probably a good thing!).

I see from searches here and elsewhere that the failure to migrate master password and login has been a serious issue, for a lot of people, for a long time, when upgrading FF. What I am still not clear on, despite reading many posts, is how to recover from this situation and seek your guidance on this.

In my profile I see:

  • key3.db (last updated by old version of FF)
  • key4.db (updated/created by new FF 94)
  • logins.json (Seems still full of all my login entries and salted passwords, not touched by FF 94)

Thanks

(O/S Linux Mint 20.2 Cinnamon. Daily backups of ~ available if needed)
