Possible Fake Firefox update reviews?

I recently received a notice that I have to put my browser. However when I go to help on Firefox in my menu. The pop up says I have the latest version of Firefox.

I was wondering if it might be a virus, or a scam, someone tried to shoot.

The URL for the update is:

http://www.updating-your-browser.com/Firefox/

and to incriminate more site the fine print bed

    Firefox should have updated to Firefox 28.0 today so now you are on the correct version.

    Unless you were on the beta channel you should already have been on Fx27.x

  • A Web site poses as location of Firefox update, requires you to download a fake probably malicious firefox - update.exe

    The site

    There was a certain sites like this one recently. They report either Firefox or Flash should be updated in order to get people to install malicious software.

    You can report these sites by using the 'Report web forgery' option in the Help menu.

  • Firefox updated "bookmark backups" folder is empty, change profile.ini to circumvent the problem of 'missing or inaccessible profile', no manual backup, pls help.

    Firefox updated "bookmark backups" folder is empty. Had to change profile.ini to profile.iniOLD to work around the problem "profile is missing or inaccessible. I tried jscher2000 suggested the procedure to return to the old profile but did not include 'semi random name' in the folder of old data from Firefox, which seems to be incomplete, as said "favorite backups" folder is empty and stupid I'm not manually save my favorites (years of research). I thought when I ran the time machine they saved automatically. is it possible to recover bookmarks?


  • after firefox updated to version 6.02, bookmarks, history and settings were missing. It looks like my old profile was replaced by a new vacuum.

    Windows 7 on a Dell desktop computer. Firefox updated to version 6.02 yeaterday. When I then opened it, I found nothing, nor the software let me restore backup bookmarks.

    One possible cause is a problem with the places.sqlite file that stores the bookmarks and history.

  • Firefox update prevents access to the NAS web page

    Firefox is the likely cause of the web administration of a Buffalo Linkstation Live 1 TB network attached page being inaccessible storage device.

    This has happened

    Each time Firefox opened

    is every attempt to open the NAS web administration page after that Firefox updated to level to 3.6.6

    With some effort, this has been resolved. and it is the browser of the cause.

    Test with configuration as a result of security changes made no difference to the outcome of the error reported. It took uninstalling internet security suite to expose Firefox as being the cause. The default settings have been the "use system settings" option in the tools/options/advanced/network Panel. I never had the opportunity to change something in this space, because I started using Firefox, and when I installed the Sep 09 NAS, access via FF using the ip_address was the norm.

    However, when you attempt to connect using FF to the security suite 'not there' a proxy not responding error occurred, which was the point on the cause. The FF network Commission review, a manual selection of the proxy server and if no proxy for local connections was the required patch. He continued to work after security suite has been reinstalled. A jpg of this working configuration image is attached.

    In the last 6 months FF suffered a number of updates. One of those - most likely 3.6.4 or 3.6.6 - changed something in FF mode of local network connection management. In which case the same ip addresses in the address bar previously authorized were no longer allowed - all without talking to the user in the update until the condition occurred in operations.

    This is the second time a mozilla product did that for me, on the automatic update, and I'm upset that a good product may be contaminated by defects of design and testing in this way. Updates automatic for FF and TBird are off my calendar. If the effects of the end of a change are not complete and explained in detail - I don't use it. the pain of the errors that it is caused is considerable.

  • How can I activate my disabled firefox update yahoo.toolbar?

    Firefox updated today and has disabled my yahoo.toolbar. When I re - install, it is again disabled when I restart Firefox.

    https://support.Mozilla.org/en-us/KB/add-on-signing-in-Firefox#w_what-can-i-do-if-Firefox-disables-an-installed-unsigned-add-on

    Replace the module signature (advanced users):
    You can override this setting by changing the preference xpinstall.signatures.required to false in the Editor of Configuration of Firefox (topic: config typed in the URL bar). Support is not available for all changes made to the Configuration then editor please do so at your own risk.

    Note: This pref will be gone in Firefox 44 (expected release for 26 Jan 2016) for extensions currently unsigned user should contact the developers of these extensions and their prod in get their act together & get their extensions signed by Mozilla. Otherwise the users of these extensions will be GROUND come out of Firefox 44. Mozilla has already made back the version in which this new security feature should be activated from Firefox 40 to 44. I doubt if there will be a further reprieve.

  • Images are the scale is no longer with (img {max-width: 100% ;}) css from the 34.0.5 in firefox update, it still works fine in IE and chrome.})

    My site was working fine up until firefox updated 34.0.5. Now the images will not scale to fit the box more. I use flexbox so that the site is changing to adapt to the size of the browser. In css, I set img {max-width: 100% ;} and this would make the jpg file size automatically to fit the area they were in, but no more than Mozilla really screwed up this with updated 34.0.5.} My site still works fine with IE and Chrome, but 70% of my web traffic using firefox so I would really like this to work in firefox.
    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    I work by setting a special parameter in CSS for the images that I needed to scale and then I have it referenced by SPAN for each img in HTML, not quite how I wanted it to work since now images filling the box even with monitors really big format, which means that they could now be blurred on a 4 k monitor but firefox left me no choice. Looks like I have going to aid in future chrome like firefox really shit the bed on this 34.0.5 updated

  • My windows 8.1 does not work with the new Firefox update. It worked before the upgrade. How can I fix it?

    After Firefox updated itself automatically, Firefox would not work. I couldn't go online on Firefox because it doesn't open at all. The old Firefox worked.

    You may have seen this article during the process to submit your question, but just in case:

    Are you familiar with Windows Task Manager? It allows to determine whether Firefox is present in memory and to cease so that you can try to start again.

    To access the Task Manager, press Ctrl + Shift + Esc. You will need to approve the program to make changes to your system. The 'Applications' tab usually has an entry for every visible window. I guess that Firefox will not be there, but if it is and you do not see the window, it's a different problem.

    The "Process" tab will list firefox.exe if Firefox is running in memory, or if it has started and stalled. If it is just sitting there, click it, and then use it button end process to kill him.

    Then, try to start Firefox in Safe Mode. It is a standard diagnostic tool to disable some advanced features of Firefox and extensions. More info: questions to troubleshoot Firefox in Safe Mode.

    Hold down the SHIFT key when you start Firefox.

    A small dialog box should appear. In the dialog box, click on 'Start mode safe' (not reset).

    Does it work?

  • For the last week or three Firefox updated two or three times for each update and sometimes for no apparent reason...

    For the last week or three Firefox updates two or three times for each update. Sometimes it refreshes without obvious reason. For example, I'll be in the middle of typing in the message forum block & it refreshes. Or by filling out an online form. Or simply viewing a page.

    You can check for problems caused by an extension that is not working properly.

    Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).

    • Do NOT click on the reset button on the startup window Mode without failure.
  • After the 24 Firefox update, Windows 7 64-bit breaks on reboot. The network in the taskbar icon is not ready (blue circle stopped).

    After 24 of Firefox update, Windows 7 breaks after the reboot. The network in the taskbar icon is not ready (blue circle on the wireless network icon). But I can't do much. I can't open the network and sharing Center (never opened). Even the Task Manager hangs when I click to show processes from all users. I have to do a system restore for a network working again. I never even launched Firefox.

    Wow... I finally have the solution. Windows updates have been applied at the same time I updated Firefox. Bluetooth driver is what broke (which is part of the Centrino wireless). I ended up installing the latest driver from Intel, Windows Update, and then update Firefox... and all is well.

    I thank very you much for all your help. Take care.
