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.

When I go to https://squareup.com/login the entry fields do not appear in Firefox. It's impossible for me to access my Square account through Firefox currently, which I use for client invoicing. I have no trouble logging in through Chrome. Screenshot attached.

I have Privacy Badger and AdBlock installed for both browsers. I tried disabling them for Firefox just to see if that was the issue, but it made no difference. I am using an iMac running macOS Catalina version 10.15.7. My Firefox Browser is version 97.0.1, and currently shows that it's up to date. My Chrome browser is version 98.0.4758.109, also up to date.

Obviously people have asked this before, but those threads all seem to be closed now. The idea that a browser would not want to have a consistent UI with every other part of the operating system is absolutely nuts, so why is it not easier (or even automatic?!) to place the 'close tab' button on the left when running on a Mac operating system?

I have tried the solutions recommended here – https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1253751 – but without any success. Maybe someone could help me understand what I am doing wrong? Better yet, maybe Mozilla could remove the need for such workarounds and implement what ought to be a standard feature?

Hi,

Is it possible for Firefox to implement an easy and accessible profile manager just like Chrome rather than going through about:profiles?

I am using containers but need to separate work and personal workspace. Some of domains are overlapped like Google and Microsoft services. so separating by domains cannot work.

On Startup: - "Open previous windows and tabs." Yes, I have this checked, but it ain't actually doing it. What's the solution?

True or False? If this box is checked I can quit Firefox altogether which tabs still open, and those same tabs will automatically load again upon reopening Firefox.

(Upon writing back, please refrain from thanking me for anything.)

I hope this is the right category. I recently switched to Firefox, and while I love both the customization aspect and how privacy-centered it is, I have 1 small thing that is bugging me a lot: printing. I'm on an M1 Macbook Air, and when I do Command+P (which is the default printing command for OSX), it downloads the file I'm attempting to print instead of sending it to preview instead of printing. I have changed the "Applications" setting so it says "Open in Preview" where I can print it from. However, it still downloads the file along with printing it. I have tried doing "Open in Firefox", and it has the same affect where it both prints the document but also downloads this. What can I do to change this, if anything? Thank you!

I have three Firefox profiles: A, B, and C. I tried to give them all different themes. A has a red theme and keeps it consistently. B, my default profile, should have a green theme, and C should have a black theme. However, when I change B's theme to green, the theme on C also changes to green, and when I change the theme on C to black, the theme for B also changes to black. I don't know what I did differently for A! How can I make my profile themes stick for B and C?

Prior to FF97 a simply setting to "false" the about:config, print.tab_modal.enabled setting allowed FF to always use the system dialog box when printing. However, in FF97, this is no longer the case. How can I set FF97 to always use the system print dialog box??

I almost always use Preview printing on my Macs to avoid multiple pages of garbage so this is fairly important to me...and it might help to save a few trees...

Since the new Firefox browser print system dialog was introduced, replacing the system print dialog panel, the process takes an excessive amount of time to process a print to a device or other interface (especially Preview), compared to the previous version as well as when compared to other browsers, like Safari.

By excessive, I mean 10-30 seconds for anything in the browser; where previously the request was completed in 1-2 seconds.

Running Firefox on MacBook Pro iOS v 12.2.1. Recently updated Firefox, now while navigating through tabs, FF randomly selects multiple tabs. When this happens, I can only view the one tab, all others are selected, but I cannot then go to that tab to view. I'm not sure I'm explaining this well. Also, I cannot close the tabs with the X but must right click for drop-down menu to close. I can open new tabs, but that tab is becomes the anchoring selected tab, any other tab I try to go to then becomes selected, as well as every tab in between, none of which I can actually view, they are stuck. I have tried "select all" in hopes of then de-selecting, but deselecting is not an option.

This is really holding me up as I have work to do and cannot view the necessary tab. I'm extremely frustrated.

LOL, as randomly as it starts, it stops...I wanted to take a screen shot, but no, everything is fine now.
