    Confused about Latest Firefox


    I have 77.0.1 64 bit installed and check now and again using About Firefox and update to latest version this way.So far, it still shows 77.0.1.

    If i install the latest version 78.0.1...will this be a complete fresh install ie your lose all bookmarks,add ons etc or will 77.0.1 be updated to 78.0.1 with everything intact...or shall i wait until About Firefox shows the new version 78.0.1 and update this way.

    Thank you.

    I just checked Help, About and got Version 78.0.1. After it restarted all the tabs I had open returned so I have to assume all my logins are still there. I don't download from Forums as it tends to be more for the BETA/Development/test versions but not properly identified as such in the Subject line.

    The Firefox program and settings, such as bookmarks and so on, are entirely separate. Program is installed in your boot disc, the profile is found in Users/[name on computer]/AppData/Mozilla/Firefox.

    Profile information should still be available at this site, but problems may have removed it:

    Personally I disable auto updates. I also always use 32bit Firefox which is not the default when auto updating on a 64bit machine.
