Every single time I download a file, the download progress window opens itself. This is really distracting and annoying. It just started this afternoon. Closing and reopening Firefox does not fix the problem.

Firefox did an update today, so I assume this has something to do with it. Every time I do a download (and I do a lot) the drop down list showing the downloads I've done pops out. It didn't do this prior to the update. It used only to appear when I selected it. Now it comes out every blasted time. It's very annoying and distracting. To be clear, I still want to see the download arrow/indicator/whatever so I can see the download is happening, but I don't want to see the list each time. How do I make it STOP? Image attached. Thank you.

Hi there, I am working on a site with Segment API and need to load their JS on my site for it to work. Whats happening is, I get the following error: "Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://api.segment.io/v1/p. (Reason: CORS request did not succeed). Status code: (null)."

The weird part is, it happens only in Firefox incognito mode. It works on Chrome, Edge, Opera.

I am wondering if this is by design or if it is a bug.

Firefox version 98.0 (64-bit).

I have a persistent cookies 'Invisiblehand.com' that I can not get rid of. I am using an Imac running Monterey 12.2.1 I am running Firefox 98.0

In Enhanced Tracking Protection I have 'Strict' in use. In Cookies and Site Data I have 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' There are no sites listed in 'Exceptions'. In 'History' I have 'Clear history when Firefox closes'

But the above site is always listed once I open up Firefox after closing it.

How do I get rid of this? This is a new problem.

Thank you for your time and effort.

"And now, every time you start a download, Firefox will automatically bring up the Downloads panel by default. This means you’ll experience minimal interruptions and easily find your downloaded files. Plus, to avoid having to close it several times, the panel won't show if there are multiple downloads in progress."


in all actuality, this is not a minimal interruption, this is a massive interruption. if i want to see my download ill open the download toolbar button! how do you stop this annoying popup? do i have to go back to an older version? is there an option to turn this off? there are tons of articles all the way back to 2011 on how to turn this off, but they dont apply to the newest version.

After today's update to version 98 Firefox keeps saving files to the Downloads folder when I don't want it to, I just want to open them, but not keep them, with this new behaviour the Downloads folder keeps filing up with useless clutter.

For example, before the update, when I downloaded a .zip file, a pop-up would show up asking if I wanted to save the file or open it with an application. If I chose to save it it would be saved to the Downloads folder, and if I chose to open it nothing would be saved to the Downloads folder.

After the update, when I download a .zip file, Firefox always saves the file to the Downloads folder, even if I choose to open it.

Can you please tell me if there is a way to make Firefox behave like in the previous version?

Does anyone else have an issue opening documents? All of a sudden Firefox no longer allows me to open certain files. When I go to the settings, the only applications that I have options for are PDF, AV1F, XML, SVG and WebP Image. I seem to have lost the ability to selection "open", "save" or "always ask" for all other documents such as Word, Excel, etc. Screenshot included.

This seems to have happened out of nowhere.

I have always had my browser set to ask me where to save anything I'm downloading, as you can see by the attached screenshot. However, every single file I have downloaded for the past 2-3 days has first gone into my Downloads folder instead, forcing me to re-download the file in order to get it into the correct folder. If this was for personal usage, I wouldn't care, but having to continually download business files is getting old very very quickly. Firefox has been my default browser for the better part of two decades. I really don't want to switch to Chrome or Safari just because Firefox won't let a power user customize their usage experience.

Since a recent Firefox update, the download button/icon in the task bar now shows the files(s) every time a 'Take A Screenshot' is used. It is becoming very annoying and the icon usually lights up in blue and the arrow becomes a circle when downloading. Can the window which opens with a list of files and 'Show All Downloads', when not selected to do so, be disabled? Thanks.

I went to start my tax return at the IRS Free Fillable Forms site and was met with a bit of a mess. All the input and check boxes are offset up and to the left. Same happens with my Chrome folder renamed and in Troubleshoot Mode. It does not happen with a new profile, and adding my user.js to it doesn't make the problem happen.

Seems like it must be a config setting I made, but I can't find it looking at about:config/modified only. Any ideas what setting might be causing this? Interestingly, it also happens with beta and nightly, but the offset positions are different.

When i click on the log in page on Covered CA website, all i could see is a blank page; but, if i switch to Edge browser, i could see the log in page just fine. Anyone knows how to fix this? Thanks.

PS: i tried to restart in Troubleshoot mode to get rid of all extensions, but that still doesn't help to fix it.

Edit: the link to the website's home is: https://www.coveredca.com/ click "sign in" from there and the problem starts

When I'm on a web site and trying to add an item to the Shopping Cart it does not add. Also it doesn't show the hand icon when I click on something within the web page like it used to. Recently, there were several Firefox updates automatically added. Could one of them have created this problem? I have Windows 10, Firefox version 98.0 and the Firefox page shows I have the latest updates.
