I'm trying to migrate my Firefox from a very old 42.0 version (where I was stuck due to valuable plugins discontinuity) to some actual version (Mac OS). Attempt to just install the latest version doesn't work because it cannot properly convert stored passwords and the places database.

From the support article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/lockwise-losing-login-information-firefox-update, I know that for passwords I should at least visit the intermediate version 68, which should be able to convert older passwords database.

What other upgrade points should I visit to successfully overcome the gap?

Firefox has been doing this to me for the past couple months, but Ill get an annoying notification saying I havent updated firefox, even though firefox is updated. This used to happen on the "nightly" version of firefox everyday, which is expected, but on a normal release, this is not supposed to happen.

How can I fix? This seems to be a bug - one location says its "up to date" the other is a notification telling me to "update".

See attached screenshot with update icon in the menu, while the "About" menu says its up-to-date.

If I go into about:config, app.update.url.manual is set to: https://www.mozilla.org/%LOCALE%/firefox/

I am trying to downgrade to ver.68.10.0 but after installing ff is updating automatically. I've tried the following advice, but it is still updating. Any ideas?

"Important: By default, Firefox is set for automatic updates. To prevent Firefox from automatically updating itself after you install an older version, you'll need to change your Firefox update settings: Click the menu button Fx57Menu and select Options. In the General panel, go to the Firefox Updates section."

FF updated to 88.0.1 and I don't get any pocket articles on start up or new page.

I check about:config and both pocket setting are set to true. I disabled it and enables it a few times and still issue persists.

My other PC did the same update and no issue on that one. Settings are the same in about:config.

in this answer [to Firefox 67 broke my profile] , Moderator cor-el has answered - - 5/22/19, 8:52 PM Try to remove compatibility.ini in this profile. You may have to edit prefs.js as well. -

Though he/ she has not elaborated what changes are required to be made in prefs.js to make it work smoothly without corrupting the profile.

Please tell what changes are to be made in prefs.js?

Thanks.

I appreciate the team at Mozilla regularly updating Firefox. What I am frustrated with is that the update will stop me in the middle of my working through Firefox, to shut down and update immediately. Is there any way to change it so that it will update when I choose, when I shut down Firefox (which I do every time I finish using it) instead of in the middle of what I am doing?

Thanks for your help.

Hi. I'm having problems downloading files from my Google Drive account. I tried doing it on Google Chrome and it'll download. But I'm use to downloading them on Firefox since it's my main source of being on the internet. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox and it's still the same. I've even checked my settings and it's the same as before. What do I need to do to be able to download files from my Google Drive again/ Please help me ASAP. Thanks.
