Firefox 5 is apparently not compatible with F-Secure Anti-virus; F-Secure repeatedly appears message "Changed the Application"; How to restore my previous version of Firefox?

I just installed Firefox 5. Unfortunately, F-Secure "Application Control" now repeatedly appears "Change the Application" messages in an endless chain. It will not accept my attempts to 'Allow' the new version of Firefox. Since Firefox 5 is not compatible with F-Secure, I want to go back to my previous version of Firefox. I am very disappointed that you put me for all this trouble. How can I remove Firefox 5 and revert to the previous version of Firefox?

good new update for firefox 5 was released today

  • security of Norton says that my google toolbar is infected with a virus and I can't move to a newer version, because it is not compatible with firefox 5 or newer, what should I do?

    In the menu tasks of my norton Security window, there is a place to check protection against vulnerabilities. One of the concerns that he has an infection in my toolbar on firefox. He suggests that the best way to resolve was made to upgrade to a new version og. google, because as the still there is apparently no problem for it. When I tried to upgrade to a new version of google to cancel the former an open window and told firefox or most recent is not compatible with it. They said that I should either download something from firefox to fix or connect with firefox. Ido know even where to start, not very informed on the problems of this kind. / your help would be very appreciated. What should I do?

    You can use firefox 3.6, which is old, but always taken in charge and course. However, the best solution is to renounce the use of Google Toolbar because Google no longer support this with firefox, mainly because he has little to offer.

    You can always google bookmark by copying in Firefox. Please take a look at

    I hope that the Norton report, you make reference to simply says that your system has vulnerabilities, rather that he suffers from a real infection (or that he has treated or quarantined malware).

  • Old favorites are not compatible with the version 20 + Firefox

    General information:
    I use the old client version 3.6 given that an old utility addon author stopped update and will not work with the new revisions. Despite disabling the update featured on: config and in preferences, the browser refreshes still finished (initially I was using 3.4 and would prefer to use that, but no matter how I try I can is no longer cancel 3.6 to 3.4 even if I reinstall using an Installer 3.4). Accordingly, I had the habit of keeping a copy of my directory of firefox where it updates again without asking, she has. This could help the guy out to meet countless people who have lost their favorites because of the upgrade released this year and I hope that someone to investigate and release a patch/utility to fix the problem.

    I checked that the most recent customer since at least version 20 and leave, are not compatible with the old bookmark JSON files. Those who have been upgraded to the latest revision not only lose their favorites, but cannot restore them either, as Firefox only returns the error message: "unable to process the Backup File.

    I confirmed that the files themselves are perfectly intact with no sign of corruption and are as expected. Restore ok old revisions of browser (in my case specifically 3.6), they will not restore the most recent customer reviews. This isn't a fault with bookmark backups, but with new clients (I guess they changed the way they store information in the JSONs at some point. I note in the code for the JSONs GUID has never been used in old revisions, but it is in the most recent revision. Maybe it's causing an incompatibility problem? You just need to adjust the client so that it looks for the GUID and if none can be found to ignore it rather than decide that the file is corrupted.

    In my case, I had a copy backup of the old directory for review. To restore I opened the copy and export bookmarks as an HTML, that I restored in the most recent client. If you don't have a copy of the former client, the best thing would be to try and re-install an older revision of the customer and either make a copy of the program folder and use another copy of that you can use the new and old customers and you worry about the loss of an older revision, since you'll always have 2 copies of the former client (the one you use the one that you use to restore in the case of at level). Or export bookmarks to an HTML element, and then upgrade the client to the newest and import the HTML instead of JSON files.

    Please review and create a more simple solution to a problem of stupid incompatibility. ^_^

    There are a number of operations in the file places.sqlite which are obsolete.
    For example,.

    setItemGUID (aItemId, aGUID) obsolete since Gecko 14.0 - returns a unique global identifier for the element. This is mainly for use by extensions that synchronize data between different profiles bookmark.

    Former id snippit:
    "title": "','id': 1,"dateAdded": 1306666129870000,"
    New snippit
    {"title": "","guid": "5rkFafJ6AnRZ",""id ": 1, 'index': 0, 'dateAdded': 1396387525168000"}

    There are other identifier here has changed, I think in version 14
    «Note: the importHTMLFromFileToFolder() method has been removed in Gecko 14.0 (14.0 Firefox / Thunderbird 14.0 / SeaMonkey 2.11).»

    But more likely the former is Netscape format:

    I tried this however: I installed the old version (3.5) and updated to the current version. All my favorites were there. I had to check the updates and could not skip certain steps of 3.5 to 3.6 for example. He then went from 3.6 to 12, then with todays update went straight to 30. They're all here. However nothing is perfect, backup is recommended as well.

    Back to your question, makes it easier for backward compatibility, my hypothesis is that they changed with the updates and ignored some versions. Saved profiles or places.sqlite files may be missing this change because the format changes in the update?

    My suggestion would be filing a bug at this request, providing a few cases where this would be necessary. Currently only the current version of Firefox is supported, which can leave us to the work around that you are currently using.

  • I continue to receive requests to upgrade to Firefox 25, but then he said that it is not compatible with Kapersky. Other issues. How can I talk with a real person?

    I keep getting windows pop up on my screen to update, but it still says that it is not compatible with Kapersky, I just update. Makes me nervous. In addition, belongs to Adobe of Mozilla? I can't seem to update that. However, it seems like if I can't download the videos at all and a large number of photos. I'm not computer savvy, and it's frustrating trying to navigate through it all.

    You need to update Firefox 25.0.1. The real Kapersky Antivirus does not work in Firefox so it will still work, the only thing that will be disabled will be especially useless Firefox Add-on e kapersky. Remaining on older versions of Firefox actually leave you vulnerable to security problems.

    Adobe is not a part of Mozilla. You can go to to install Flash (don't include other software)

  • Firefox worked, today has not started with the error the version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you are using.

    Computer is Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Firefox has work fine for over a year on this computer. Nothing has been changed or updated updated except Windows update indicates that it installed updates on August 19. I had computer week before because only out of town, back entrance and began August 18, but Firefox has worked that day. Does not use FF again until today. Today August 22, firefox does not start, shortcut icon changed program not there. Exe in the folder when you click Poster error message says the version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows, I am running. Exe of Firefox shows created on 20 August. I suspect the update, Windows or FF but lean towards windows, which was spent, who broke things. I noticed that IE 10 updates, updates of .NET framework and the malicious software removal tool have been installed. I tried to restart the computer, has not set. Tried to run as administrator, did not work. I don't want to uninstall FF, at least have to because of all the things I have here, bookmarks, last past passwords, etc..


    Some Firefox problems can be solved by performing a clean reinstall. This means that you remove Firefox program files (not the profile folder, where the bookmarks are stored) and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps:

    Note: You can print these steps or consult them in another browser.

    1. Download the latest version of Firefox from office and save the installer to your computer.
    2. Once the download is complete, close all Firefox Windows (click on quit in the file menu or Firefox).
    3. Remove the Firefox installation folder, which is located in one of these locations, by default:
      • Windows:

        • C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
        • C:\Program Files (x 86) \Mozilla Firefox
      • Mac: Delete Firefox in the Applications folder.
      • Linux: If you have installed Firefox with the distribution-based package manager, you must use the same way to uninstall: see Install Firefox on Linux. If you have downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder firefox in your home directory.
    4. Now, go ahead and reinstall Firefox:
      1. Double-click on the downloaded Setup file and go through the steps in the installation wizard.
      2. Once the wizard is completed, click to open Firefox directly after clicking the Finish button.
