For several reasons, mostly add-on compatibility, I need to use V41 I have gone to the Options area and then to Advanced and have checked "Never check for updates " so it should NOT automatically update itself. However, it IS updating itself to V43 - and of course some of my Add-ons are not compatible.

Am I missing something??

Any help would be appreciated.

After my husband logs in and Firefox starts up, he continues to get window to Restart Firefox To Update. When I click on About Firefox it also indicates that we have to Restart Firefox To Update. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox from Mozilla.org 3 times now and this problem continues. Refresh also does not eliminate the problem. Clicking on Firefox in Applications file identifies version as 49.0.2. Operating system is OS X El Capitan 10.11.6

When I log in to Firefox under my user, I do not have any problems.

Firefox hangs when I open a new tab or new webpage. It's really annoying!

Everytime I do the automatic updates this shit happens. I used to go to one of the articles where it gave me instructions on how to reset my preferences, but that thread has since been modified, it now says to delete my pref.js, but that doesn't fix the issue anymore.

So i'm resorting to actually making a god damn account and asking why this shit keeps happening. I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed aswell, but it saved some of my data which I kinda need (bookmarks). That doesn't help.

I know that resetting my preferences back to default every update used to fix it, but I forget how now. Thanks...

Can someone just tell me how to fix it so I can update without having to do all this shit again.

I have only one extension and that is adblockerplus. Not likely the cause as it does this aswell without.

UPDATE: Saturday 16 May 2015

Same problems as below now exist on THREE machines -- one Windows 7 64bit desktop, and two laptops Windows 7 64bit, all Win 7 SP1, updated with latest MS Updates.

Updated to Firefox 38.0.1 Windows 7 64bit...previous version of FF was working fine and was meticulously crafted by experienced tech user.

Now, we have two major troubles immediately happened with update to 38.0.1:

1. Will NOT close Firefox (have to use Task manager). Nothing we do within FF closes it

2. Firefox will NOT open New Private Window, only after we located a New Private Window toolbar icon will item #2 work.

Again, this is the fifth straight time after Updating FF that it suddenly creates new and not-seen-before problems.

This is NOT due to Add-Ons, it's not due to Plug-In's... it's due to a sudden new problem(s) introduced by the Updated FF 38.0.1, now on three different machines.

Starting FF in Safe Mode is tacitly useless and time-consuming, and proves nothing, allows nothing to be checked or changed, the problems remain.

When having to use Task Manager to close FF 38.0.1, restarting FF again calls in the Crashed Session Manager and we have to recover from what FF insists is a crashed session.

Why oh why are these new problems suddenly introduced each time we users update ?

Now what's been changed or altered, all without our knowledge, and not mention in ANY of the new FF notes, etc.

EVERY time we update, it's essentially introducing inferior performance and problems in an otherwise finely tuned previously working FF.

Saturday 16 May 2015: Have received no replies, no assistance or ideas from Mozilla troubleshooting or programming staff. There must be many Windows 7 64bit users seeing the same problem(s) ??

Hi,

When I try download and install mozilla firefox it gives a prompt "This version of Firefox requires Microsoft Windows 7 x64 or newer". But the fact is that I'm installing it on a Win 7 64-bit environment and the firefox installer file is also 64-bit. I have verified the minimum system requirements for firefox installation and it meets the criteria. But still it doesn't allow me to install and gives the said prompt.

Tried various install files and no luck. When I try download it is the stub installer file that is available for latest versions. Refer the screenshot of the error.

I have noticed for the past 3 or 4 updates Firefox refuses to update via Help |About. It tells me there is an update I click on the button on the about page to restart the browser yet the update never installs. The only way to update Firefox is to download the installer from Firefox website.

I have cleared cache and cookies and that has done nothing to solve this issue

The question isn't even an exaggeration. I was browsing like normal, doing nothing that I don't always do anyway. There were no updates to any of my extensions or add ons (though I don't know when firefox last updated itself) I close the browser and go do something else. Come back and when I try to load anything in firefox it says it isn't connected to the internet.

Thing is... I'm typing from that same computer. My internet is completely fine. It's not blocked by any firewall or proxy - it never has been. Firefox decided it just doesn't want to work anymore and this is incredibly annoying. Though I prefer using SeaMonkey (Which works) I need Lightbeam for a site I often go to and that's only in firefox.

I've started it in safe mode as well as refreshed it.

I've selected in the update tab under the advanced options to never check for updates, none of which I will ever want to download, never had the Maintenance Service installed, and also confirmed that the values of such preferences of "app.update.auto, app.update.enabled, app.update.silent" are set to false in about:config as I was told they should be. Yet, EVERY time I open Firefox, Firefox automatically tries to update itself, prompting User Account Control to ask my permission for Firefox to make changes (the upgrade) to my computer. I do not want to have to click no every time I'm asked this because Firefox tries to update itself WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. What can I do to stop this?

I am using WIN XP SP3 32 bit on a desktop computer. Firefox prompted me to update Silverlight, which involved uninstalling the existing version of Silverlight, which I did. But when I tried to install the latest version, it wouldn't let me. It actually got to the Installer, then this was the message I got.

"Message ID: generic You reached this page since you encountered problems with the installation of Microsoft Silverlight. In many cases these problems are due to incompatible browser and operating system or due to an old pre-release version of Silverlight. Please follow the Uninstall Instructions to remove any previous versions from your system and then visit the Silverlight Web site and install the latest version. "

What does all this mean, please? I'm not stupid & can manage most basic things, but am not a techie by any means...please, can someone please help me & tell me what I should do next? I am an aged pensioner, thus cannot upgrade my computer, as I haven't the budget to save up for a new one (or a re-con one either!).

I am under the impression that I need Silverlight if I want to watch most videos, and I do daily. (Meditations, mainly).

Thanks in advance Peace and Love Sylvia
