Why is there a update alert whenever I run Firefox?

Whenever I run Firefox, I get the update available alert, and it's usually for the same version number. Installation does not help. Next time I run the application, the alert is displayed again. Running on Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 35.0.1.


If he has problems with the update or with the permissions then best is to download the full version and trash the version currently installed to do a fresh install of the new version.

Download a new copy of the Firefox application and save the file to disk on the desktop image

Your personal data are stored in the Firefox profile folder, so you will not lose your bookmarks and other data to personal when you uninstall and (re) install or update Firefox.

  • Whenever I run Firefox, it starts to download a huge file that I don't want. How to stop this.

    I had Firefox starts downloading a file yesterday and then changed my mind leave Firefox in the process. He asked if I wanted to cancel the download and I said yes. Now, whenever I run Firefox, it starts to download the same file 805 MB that I already have a copy from another source. I deleted everything I could find with Firefox or Mozilla in preferences and Caches as well as a few other places, but again, start Firefox and it starts downloading. Looked through the preferences of Firefox and see nothing that looks like it would fix this problem. It's Firefox OS x 35.0.1 10.10.1, in fact, it is the OS X ComboUpdate 10.10.2 it maintains keen to download, but it is already on my drive.

    I would like to give your more information, but I'm in Safari, Firefox now because I don't want to waste resources to have this file to download it again. I don't have a line T1 entering my house. Sorry, but this issue should be responsible without any of this info.

  • Very recently, whenever I run Firefox, an arrow appears, pointing down and disappears to the top of the screen

    Recently, whenever I run Firefox, an arrow appears, pointing down and quickly disappears to the top of the screen. I'm not trying to download something, it is whenever I run Firefox. At first I thought I was seeing things, but verified by concentrating just to catch, it appear and disappear. See no reason for this. I use Firefox for years and it's never happened before. Furthermore, it does not appear on my IE browser.

    Never mind. I found the problem and it was a program that was trying to download it, but couldn't all the time. I removed from the Firefox download page.

    Status: solved!

  • Whenever I run firefox, it tells me that the proxy parameter is incorrect.

    Sometimes after that I changed my proxy in a few days.
    Now, each time after I start Firefox, I have to click on option-> proxy setting then click OK without any change or changes of mirror, it works then.

    I can't save my setting in the option-> proxy page. Whenever I run firefox, the proxy parameter is selected as "manual" with nothing in the IP blanks, although I changed it to 'Auto' last before closing.

    The problem is not fixed under the 'Disabled add-ons' mode. The removal of caches, cookies or sth otherwise don't work or the other.

    What should I do? answer me, it's annoying.

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

    Why are there empty space at the top above the tabs and the address bar and minimize fullscreen and close the icons at the top right? Restored the default without impact theme, change seems to happen on FF 31 update.

    Try the negative margin top for the bar tab (#TabsToolbar) with the code to userChrome.css

    Add code to the file userChrome.css below default @namespace.

    @namespace url("https://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */
    #TabsToolbar {margin-top:-1px!important}

  • Whenever I run firefox I get "Sync has encountered an error during synchronization: Incorrect account name or password." Sync automatically retrying this action. "

    I am using the new firefox Sync since it is has been implemented without problem. I got this error after you perform the following steps:

    (1) old drive replaced with the new SSD drive and installed Windows 7 drivers etc + Firefox
    (2) deleted [email protected]***.com Firefox Sync account
    (3) [email protected]***.com Firefox Sync account created
    (4) imported my favorites last folder E:\Users\***\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\***.default\bookmarkbackups on the old drive.

    Since then, whenever I open Firefox I get the above error. If I enter the password 'Firefox Sync' sync works fine until the next time that I restart Firefox.

  • Why is there not a direct download link for Firefox?

    I searched the Firefox for Android paragraph of the Mozilla website and am disturbed to find that there is no way to download a .apk file directly, without going through the AppStore. Why is this? It should (theoretically) be no reason not to release a package for Firefox, it's free and open source.

    I just completely forgot the link, and it is in the flat view?

    The game store manages the control, selection of language and integrated update of compatibility. This ensures the best user experience.

    However, versions are available on the Mozilla servers for those who prefer (or need) sideload and are willing to manage their own updates:

    http://FTP.Mozilla. . org/pub/mozilla org/mobile/releases/later / android /.
