I want to reinstall firefox for mac after uninstalling, but now whenever I download there is no corresponding file in my computer. I want firefox, help!

I was having lots of problems with my firefox and the upgrades never worked on my mac, so I uninstalled. Now whenever I try to reinstall it through the homepage (and the more page that lists versions by language and OS--I am using Safari to download), the download "finishes" but there is absolutely NO file anywhere on my computer that represents a downloaded file. No .dmg pops up on my desktop; even when I search my computer there is virtually no file. I've tried this now about 20 times. I just want to use firefox!

Hello,
Certain Firefox problems can be solved by performing a ''Clean reinstall''. This means you remove Firefox program files and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps:
'''Note:''' You might want to print these steps or view them in another browser.
#Download the latest Desktop version of Firefox from http://www.mozilla.org and save the setup file to your computer.
#After the download finishes, close all Firefox windows (click Exit from the Firefox or File menu).
#Delete the Firefox installation folder, which is located in one of these locations, by default:
#*'''Windows:'''
#**C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
#**C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox
#*'''Mac:''' Delete Firefox from the Applications folder.
#*'''Linux:''' If you installed Firefox with the distro-based package manager, you should use the same way to uninstall it - see [[Installing Firefox on Linux]]. If you downloaded and installed the binary package from the [http://www.mozilla.org/firefox#desktop Firefox download page], simply remove the folder ''firefox'' in your home directory.
#Now, go ahead and reinstall Firefox:
##Double-click the downloaded installation file and go through the steps of the installation wizard.
##Once the wizard is finished, choose to directly open Firefox after clicking the Finish button.
More information about reinstalling Firefox can be found [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems?esab=a&s=troubleshooting&r=3&as=s#w_5-reinstall-firefox here].
<b>WARNING:</b> Do not run Firefox's uninstaller or use a third party remover as part of this process, because that could permanently delete your Firefox data, including but not limited to, extensions, cache, cookies, bookmarks, personal settings and saved passwords. <u>These cannot be recovered unless they have been backed up to an external device!</u>
Please report back to see if this helped you!
Thank you.

  • Installed MS Office for Mac, after uninstalling test drive, still reg to TD

    I installed MS Office for Mac 2004 this morning, after being very careful to uninstall the test drive version, after reading about problems it causes not to do so. I followed the instructions to uninstall, emptied the trash after, did the installation, updates, etc. But when I look at the "about" section of word, etc, it shows that the product is licensed to "Office 2004 Test Drive User". I did fill in the info on name, address, etc, and the "test version" watermarks that I was seeing on excel spreadsheets pre-installation are gone now. I have rebooted the machine. Do I need to register each application separately? Did I miss something in the uninstall?
    Also, after installing the new Office, I had problems accessing the internet from accounts other than the one from which I'd done the installation. I asked about that in the internet related subforum here, thought I had it fixed, but it's been inconsistent, seems to work on-and-off in the different accounts. Did the accessing of the net during the course of the install knock something out of place?

    I installed office after deleting test drive. Registration is fine. Microsoft creates a user pref folder for each user account. This will be activated with your individual pref. the first time you open one of the office programs. It will be different/reset for each user on the computer. So it is possible that different users would experience different problems connecting to the internet. I copied my users pref and library folder over from my powerbook to the imac and all of my settings seem to work just fine on the new imac.
    My suggestion would be to uninstall all versions of office on your imac and then reinstall office 2004. Be sure to do this in an administrator account and to repair permissions before and after install.
    Good luck!

  • Do I need to reinstall java for mac after maverick upgrade

    I just updated to maverick on my macbook pro and everything works fine. When i went to the preferecne the java option wasnt there so I searched it in finder and saw all the folder for it still there. I still have the download too. When i went to play minecraft it said I didnt have it. So I was wondering if I need to install java 7 agian. Also im only using it for the game should I do anything else in terms of security?

    The short answer is.. No.
    However, keep near by those SYSTEM and APPLICATIONS DVDs that came with your computer, just in case anything goes wrong.
    ... FYI... make sure to check SOFTWARE UPDATE after the install, for any updates to your iLife applications that will make them more compatible with Lion.

    I am in my last few months at university and want to buy windows for mac. After i graduate will it still work?
    Thanks.

    There is no such thing as Windows for Mac. Windows is Windows and you can install it on a Windows computer or on an Apple computer. Once installed it will work until you remove it.

  • After being hassled just about to death, I downloaded the new Firefox for Macs (3.6.13). Now I cannot download anything. Not a thing.

    After being hassled just about to death, I downloaded the new Firefox for Macs (3.6.13). Now I cannot download anything. Not a thing. The help files suggested resetting the download folder (didn't work), clearing the download menu (didn't work as there was nothing to clear)

    Firefox 4 requires at least OS X 10.5 and an Intel Mac. There is a third party version of Firefox 4 that runs on OS X 10.4/10.5 and PPC Macs, for details see http://www.floodgap.com/software/tenfourfox
    If you prefer, you can get the latest version of Firefox 3.6 from http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html
    Mozilla are working to prevent Mac users with non-compatible systems from getting the notification about Firefox 4, and also not displaying the "Download Firefox 4" button on http://www.mozilla.com

  • How do I capture streaming video on firefox for mac?

    Is there a way to save or capture streaming video being watched on Firefox for Mac?

    it's possible. i did it myself, after a few tryouts.
    i still can't get the best result, but i got something.
    first of all you have to save the streaming file(thru the save as qt movie, from CTRL-click). when you get a stream it gets cached on your computer. you might playback it even when offline. so if all that you need is a simple playback, that's ok. but it's a cache, sometime the system will erase it from your HD.
    if you want to keep it as a qt file(or any other format) thats this is the deal. when you save the stream file, it saves a reference file(4kb) that reads the cache. you cannot recover them from the cache, not even by changing the termination, because the qt player won't recognize the .qtch files transformed into .mov.
    open the file(reference you saved before), choose export from the file menu, and choose the setting that you want. i still don't get a good quality(i know it's incredible that a stream file has a better quality...) and i still have to export the video separated from the audio. but if you need only the moving image to edit a homevideo, and your only source is a stream, it's a start.
    so if anyone feel like growing the knowledge tree, let's go ahead.

  • I wanted to install windows for Mac and I had vista so I put I the disk and installed it then it  loses my  computer wen I turned it on it went straight to windows and it asked me to install it and put in the windows box code I found out I didn't have Ma.

    I wanted to install windows for Mac and I had vista so I put I the disk and installed  followed the steps it then it  closed my  computer wen I turned it on it went straight to windows and it asked me to install it and put in the windows box code I found out I didn't have it so I wanted to go back to Mac I shut it off and it just goes back to windows and asks me to put the box code how do I get rid of it and go back to Mac because no buttons work at the start and i can't take out the disk !! Help

    The two other posts are correct... so I'll just clarify.  What's happening right now is your system is trying to boot into Windows in order to finish the installation.  What you want to do is make it boot into OS X.  As mende1 indicated, with your system off, hold down the Option key and continue to hold it while you turn the system on.  You will eventually be presented with an option to select which partition you would like to boot from.  Choose OS X.  After you get into OS X, again, as mende1 indicated, change the Startup Disk to OS X.  What this will do is cause your system to automatically boot into OS X when you restart it instead of you having to use the Option key when booting each time.
    Relaunching BootCamp Assistant will allow you to remove your Windows installation and partition. 

  • Firefox for Mac preferences shows .qif file format for quicken as "quicktime image format"-wrong application and won't let me select anything else

    Post to Firefox forum; Oct.2011
    Re: Quicken 2007; Mac OS 10.5
    Problem: can’t import or download Qif format files into quicken from bofa or Chase. Mac can’t recognize; how do I set preferences in Firefox (or Safari).
    https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions/new?product=desktop&category=d1&search=Firefox+for+Mac+preferences+shows+.qif+file+format+for+quicken+as+%22quicktime+image+format%22-wrong+application+and+won%27t+let+me+select+anything+else&showform=1
    Hello,
    I previously used Firefox on my old Mac G4 with OS 10.3.9; the above issue existed with that system and Firefox 2.00.2 (or similar). I then "tried" to move to a G5 Mac with OS 10.5, hoping that an updated Mac Operating system and updating Firefox would solve that problem.
    I'm now working on my son's MacBook Pro, OS 10.5.8, 2.4 ghz Intel Core 2 Duo; 2gb Memory; 2 gb 667 Mhz DDR2 SDRAM.
    I still have a problem in Firefox Preferences trying to download .qif files. BofA Mortgage accounts only allow downloading of .qif files. My .qfx download works fine, but the error message is as follows:
    The error message is that this is a corrupted file or one that Preview doesn't recognize.
    and it is still a problem when trying to download Quicken .qif format files for our B of A mortgage.
    The preferences for Firefox under File Helpers won't let me name the extension I want; instead, it CONFUSES .qif (Quicken Interchange Format) with .qtif (Quicktime Image Format) for Mac.
    Therefore, when I download .qif files and try to import them to Quicken, I get a message that this is a corrupted file:
    thanks for any help.

    Well, in the end, I just gave up and deleted the photos, in the hope that it was something to do with them. Took some more photos and they seem to have imported without any problems at all.
    Given that the same irksome photos loaded on the wife's macbook without so much as a murmur, how weird is that?
    Still- all's well that ends well. Thanks for the suggestions- much appreciated.

  • How to import /export bookmarks in Firefox for Mac

    I wanted to export my bookmarks in Firefox for Mac, in htm or pdf format. Cant find any command for that. Nor any import from htm or pdf. Nor can I list all my bookmarks aplhabetically ; I have lots of bookmarks in different folders and I want to see all these bookmarks listed with no folders.

    In Firefox for OS X, you can export your Bookmarks to HTML via the Bookmarks dialouge window.
    Open your Bookmarks dialouge via the Menu bar: Bookmarks > Show All Bookmarks.
    When the new window has opened, this is what you can do to export your Bookmarks: https://support.mozilla.org/media/uploads/images/2012-09-16-05-44-02-10bc19.png (or view the image attachment).

  • What is the latest version and updates available of Firefox for Mac system 10.3.9? Can you provide a link of this for downloading.

    What is the latest version and updates available of Firefox for Mac system 10.3.9? Can you provide a link of this for downloading. I am currently using Firefox 2.0.0.20 but need to upgrade to use Bell.net email.
    == URL of affected sites ==
    http://

    Firefox 2.0.0.20 is the last version that works on OS X 10.3.9
    You may want to consider using another browser if 2.0.0.20 does not work for your email. You could try using Safari for your email. If that does not work or prefer an alternative, a couple of options are [http://www.icab.de/dl.php iCab 4.8] or [http://www.opera.com/download/?os=mac&ver=9.64&local=y Opera 9.64] (Opera 10 does not work on OS X 10.3.9)

  • Why is Firefox for Mac stalling on many sites recently?

    In the last couple of days, my Firefox for Mac (37.0.2) has been stalling on many sites, with the spinning wheel icon just rotating endlessly to show unsuccessful processing. This hanging action occurs on several sites where I'm going into inside pages, a problem I almost never have but now is frequent. Is this some kind of temporary or known issue? I don't want to have to go through Refresh, especially since i noticed someone else commented that it didn't resolve a similar issue. But something is definitely wrong, and is making use of Firefox extremely frustrating if not pointless.

    There's a known problem that affects some Acer Liquid phones, but I'm not sure if it affects the Liquid E. We are still investigating it and do not have a solution yet. For details, see: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=606194

  • Want to use Outlook for Mac 2011

    Hello!
    I want to use Outlook for Mac 2011 for my calendar, email, and contacts on my Macbook Air, iPhone 6, and iPad Air.  Is this possible to sync with all these devices with this program?  I am more organized with Outlook than using the different Apple programs.  It has more options. 
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you in advance.

    If you have outlook on all 3 devices, should be okay. However, I am suggesting you to probably try the Apple's and get used to it as you are using all notebook, phoneme and tab with Apple. Might save you some money with that.

  • How to install Firefox for Mac on an external USB 3.0 drive and run Firefox portable?

    I recently acquired a new MacBook Pro 10.9 Mavericks laptop and, I would like to to install Firefox for Mac on a Mac-compatible external USB 3.0 HD, and import my 16MB of legacy bookmarks from a PC-compatible USB 2.0 HD and, run Firefox as a portable application, as I did for years on my 7-year-old EOS'd Dell Inspiron XP laptop.
    Do-able?
    If so, I would like to do the same with Thunderbird...

    Hi,
    There are portable versions of Firefox and Thunderbird but Mozilla doesn't offer them directly. You can get them from PA.com. Links are below:
    *[http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable Firefox 28.0]
    *[http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/thunderbird_portable Thunderbird 24.4.0]
    All you have to do is open it, and point the installation directory to your USB Stick
