As with others I can't find my old profile. I renamed it long ago as my primary profile and have updated firefox many times since. On Sat 8/14 I updated Sahara and my profile won't reload, instead I'm getting a window claiming the profile is too old. I've been through and through the FAQs and am not enough of a successful user to get to the right folder to find a usable profile with my data still in tact. about:profiles, where I usually go now had 43 profiles in it including my previously renamed profile but that doesn't help. I refreshed ff without success. I tried to find help in the many profiles help pages that said click on this, copy this, click on the profile tab, go up one level and turn left and you lost me. Can anybody help me find my usable profile and simply explain how do I re-initiate it? Thanks.

too many websites (as well as mozilla/firefox) were asking me to download a newer version of firefox on my macbook pro running safari. I downloaded the most recent Firefox version and keep getting an 'update now' message from mozilla/firefox and now I've got like 5 new installs of firefox (today) that apparently aren't the newest?

Open correct program on download with FF on Linux

I'm using FF on Linux FC 30. If I download a file, let's say it's an RPM file it gives I get a dialog that says "You have chosen to open: Someprogram-1.2.3.rpm. What should Firefox do with this file Open with Apper Installer (default)"

If I click OK, nothing seems to happen. The "Apper" program does not open. Similarly, if I download a PDF, a PDF viewer does not open either. I'm not sure why it offers to open with that if it does not actually do it."

Instead, I have to click on the Downloads arrow, open the containing folder, right click on the file in a file explorer and have it open that application. Or, find wherever FF decided to put the file, currently FF favors /tmp/mozilla_my_id_0 and execute the program in a terminal.

I'd like to have FF actually do what it offered to do. I like to have it ask first. That part is good. But I want it to actually run the program. Apper exists on my system, and I have PDF viewers as well.

Secondly, I want to have FF download files in the normal Downloads folder and not some place off /tmp.

How can both things be fixed?

Thanks, Ben

I have had the same stupid problem for 3 years. I lose power to my MAC and I have to redo all the stuff on Firefox. I lose homepage, BookmarksI really want to speak to a voice on the phone so I can explain it but that is not an option on the website. I WANT TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE WHO CAN HELP ME!!!!! I have tried a couple of the self solutions and I have the same problem. I am about to just delete this POS and go back to POS Safari. Firefox works wonderful when it is up and running but if my machine loses power or I reboot, Firefox gets wrapped around the axel and I can't get my Bookmarks/favorites back. Also, LASTPASS used to have a small icon in the upper right part of my homepage......now that is gone. I hope to here back from you.

When I restarted Firefox after a freeze, I did NOT get the familiar message that lets me choose to restore all windows. When opened, Firefox showed only ONE window (the one I was working in when it froze up). The Firefox menu (upper right corner) does NOT display a Restore Previous Session option. It's as if all the windows open in my last session never existed. Is there any way I can still reopen them now?
