I recently reinstalled mozilla firefox on my PC and i noticed that in Option>General>Downloads there is no longer the option to disable the "Save File" pop up window whenever u click on a file to download. I searched around, even messed with about:config but i couldn't find a way to disable it. So the question is simple: Is there a way to disable this prompt?

I've noticed after an update ( Win) that Firefox will not remove non of the existing maps( installed ver).

But however when I do a update in Win ( still have Win 7) I go to Control panel->Programs->Add/remove programs. And do an removal via win add/removal tool.

But as I assumes that Firefox will create a library in win registery. But my point is if I can manualy delete the exsisting maps( librarys). Or Do I have to make a complete formating of my HDD?

But when I install Firefox at my Pc I have a separate partition at my HDD,to wich I install Firefox. Just in case not to infect or get rid of my existing installed programs. For an ex at my C:/ I only have installed my OS (Win)+sometimes Office.

When I turned on my computer this morning a message said I needed to download Firefox Update, so I clicked on that link. About a half hour later after it had also updated Windows 10 a page popped up telling me I had been sent a code to my email that I would need to input. I have not received an email or junk mail with any code. However, it looks like I already have Version 86. Please help me with this issue. I am so overwhelmed with computer issues I'm on the verge of tears right now. My last Windows 10 update Did NOT install and I am not the only one with this issue, but NO help from Microsoft. Did Mozilla update Windows 10 to accept the new version of Firefox? I looked at your educated guess, clicked on Show Details, nothing came up. Then I clicked on Troubleshooting Information and Share Data. I don't know if you are able to see this list or not, I don't know what 99% of it means, but I did copy a few things that may be helpful. environmentVariables": {

Today I tried to update Firefox through the Help/About Firefox dialog. The update from 85 to 86 appeared to go fine. I got the Click to Restart Firefox and complete Update button, and the application restarted when I clicked the button. However, opening the Help/About Firefox dialog again displays the message "Firefox is being updated by another instance". It is not, so it appears that this update has not completed correctly, and, in this state, I suspect that further updates won't work either. Has anyone else seen this issue?

I did NOT enroll in any FF studies. Yet, moderator Cor-el said the app.normandy preferences will install new features and 'shield studies' anyways. I stopped downloading FF updates after v.84. I wanted to avoid the disastrous change to the print function that showed up on another computer. I spent hours trying to figure out what happened and how to get rid of of it. Nevertheless, Firefox installed this unwanted print 'update.' So my question is whether it is safe to turn off or delete all the app.normandy preferences in about:config ? Or do I only need to change the settings on a few? If so, which ones. What happens if I change these?

Dear beautiful Firefox community,

I am using the add-ons DownThemAll! and Turbo Download Manager for Firefox. They work a charm if I right-click a link to a downloadable file and select them from the context menu (shell extension). Especially when I am in places with poor connectivity or slow wifi I depend on these add-ons to remain able to work. Please refer to the attached screenshot illustrating the process.

However, there are many websites where downloads are started automatically or where the link to the downloadable file is somewhere hidden behind a javascript, so when right-clicking on the download link to a file and selecting "save link", I am ending up downloading a html-file instead of the actual file.

Is there a way for me to have all downloads automatically run through either of these add-ons whenever I click on a download link?

Thank you for your help! Take care guys

I am having problems installing the Malwarebytes Browser Protection add-on. When trying to install from the add-on site I get a message "Download Failed, check your connection". I have managed to install this add-on previously but I accidentally deleted it by mistake, so I know that it is compatible Firefox version 86. Other add-ons that I use downloaded without problems. Two methods that I have tried to rectify the problem is refreshing Firefox and restarting Firefox with the add-ons disabled to see if there were any conflicts. This didn't help.

Does anyone have any suggestions

How can I trigger Firefox to check for updates via a command? We have FF installed on users' computers, but some users never use it. I would like to be able to trigger the FF updater to check for updates on a regular schedule. If FF is being used, then it would alert the user of the need to restart as usual. If not, then it will just update itself.

This would be for both Windows and Mac
