I chose the option to open pdf files (for example) on Firefox. But Firefox first downloads them to my "download" directory and only than opens it with Acrobat. My "download" directory now is full with garbage files that I need to delete manually. Is there any good option how to disable this "feature"? I would prefer not to see all the garbage files at all.

I changed "browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel" to false. Doesn't work.

Hi Mozilla,

Yes I did try in Safe mode and that worked until logging off and then restarting FireFox.

Since the most recent FireFox update Safe Mode no longer works.

I can still login to the site and perform some rudimentary tasks but when I want to edit/view a payment I get the error message as posted.

If I use my Tablet to login I have no problem although the Tablet uses Chrome and not Firefox.

I can try the tablet with FireFox and report back.

Is their a log file or setting list that I can send that will help.

Regards, Greg

[Windows] Can't disable displaying "media control" on lock screen even if turned off via advanced settings

Procedure is written on this article: [[Tip] Enable Firefox to Show Media Controls on Windows 10 Lock Screen – AskVG](https://www.askvg.com/tip-enable-firefox-to-show-media-controls-on-windows-10-lock-screen/#:~:text=If%20you%20are%20using%20Windows,enabled%20preference%2Fflag%20to%20False)

Windows has feature that displaying media control popup on its lock screen. Firefox has an option to turn this off via advanced setting, but turn "media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled" to "false" doesn't stop showing it up.

Also, on certain website (in my case tweetdeck), control screen of previously viewed and closed video is keep showing up and can't erase it unless restarting browser.

I asked this question on Microsoft forum but suggested it's Firefox issue. Does anyone have same problem? How can I fix this?

In Chrome I can browse my bookmark tree, right click on a folder and "Add Page", which directly adds the current URL to that folder. Firefox shows only "Add (a blank) Bookmark", "Add Folder", etc. No way to add the current page. Is there a way to add that I'm not seeing, other than dragging the URL physically?

Hi:

I tried to set cookie preferences for different websites. For reasons that I do not understand, I cannot move the "slider". I even turned of the existing protection for the websites, but nothing changed. I tried the same with Safari using the same computer and mouse, and I had no problems.

Is this a known bug?

I attached a screen capture. Thanks.

I am not too good with the computer and have just starting using Firefox. I will do my best to describe my question so please bar with me. I have 2 rows of websites that I frequent...actually only using the first row and 5 spaces in the second row. When I go to a different website Firefox is automatically adding that website to one of the boxes in the second row which I do not want. How do I stop this? Question 2...using Ebay as an example...if I keep searching on Ebay and have looked at lets say 5 different pages how do I go back to the home screen without having to hit the back button 6 times? Thanks for the help. Chuck

I cannot seem to reach https://community.esri.com/ via Firefox but can reach it fine with Chrome and Edge.

Firefox says "The page isn’t redirecting properly. An error occurred during a connection to community.esri.com. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

So I even added the page to list of Exceptions, but still cannot reach site.

Hello there! So, I've just installed Firefox in a notebook I have and now there's a website where I can't see some pictures. https://i.imgur.com/E86dhVB.png There should be a picture there instead of (IMG:link) https://i.imgur.com/7lzrbfU.png There should also be a picture there, behind "Redvirux". Some pictures are shown, though, but most aren't. It's an http website, but it had been working fine on my Windows 8 instalation. Do I need some codecs? Is it a Windows 10 problem?

Hi there,

i'd like to copy my Firefox profile from PC1 to a new PC2;

Last time i tried this, i ended up with PC2 having the same "name" as PC1 in "Sync". This caused weird sync issues, as the system thought my PC2 was PC1 as vice versa.

So, is it possible to copy my entire profile with all addons/settings, BUT, make "Sync" recognize it as a NEW pc ?


Thank you in advance :-)

Web site: https://www.resortcams.com/webcams/king-street-boone/ On cell phones, web site is: www.resortcams.com/webcams/king-street-boone/


Error only happens on Foxfire Windows 11. Only began to happen recently. Bitdefender Total Security installed. Removed VPN because it was blocking valid secure sites. Bitdefender is installed on iPhone and Android cell phones. Cell phones are not a problem going to site.

On Windows, "https://" is added to the beginning of web address, but not on cell phones.

Tried removing security site, but does not load and "https://" is added back on the Windows page with error message above. Used to be able to go from one resortcams site to another, but error message appears after about 30 seconds.

Hello - there are add-ons for Amazon, Google, Facebook, EBay and Twitter - none of which I added - showing up on the Firefox browser as running during browser start. I can see them when I use CC Cleaner. They are browser plugins set to run upon start up. I can disable them but need to do it every time, as there is no way to delete them that I can see. I would like to find out why these plugins are there and how I can delete them.


Thanks

Because of my work I have to use a specific car rental company but recently I am unable to log in to my account on their website via Firefox. Safari, which I prefer not to use, is no problem but if I try to log in using Firefox it gets stalled on the spinning wheel. I have an ad blocked but I had already turned it off for accessing that particular site, I think I just got a browser update, it just doesn't want to log in. Anyone have any ideas? I'm on a Macbook, OS 12.4. Firefox says it's up to date, version 102.0.1
