When downloading files, Firefox no longer remembers the directory path the file was previously saved to on a per-URL basis.

Previous Firefox behavior: #1. download file from website "aaaa.com" to a folder on your computer, "user/frank/companies/aaaa/". #2. download file from website "bbbb.com" to a folder on your computer, "user/frank/companies/bbbb/". #3. Now, go back to the website "aaaa.com" and attempt to download another file. Firefox used to present the previously used directory for this particular URL, in this case, "user/frank/companies/aaaa/" - but instead, now it presents the most recently used directory path, which was "user/frank/companies/bbbb/".

This issue has appeared before and the advice to fix it was to go about:config, search for browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite and make sure it is set at TRUE. I have done this, but the issue remains: Firefox no longer remembers saved file directory paths on a per-URL basis.

MacOS 11.6.6 (Big Sur); Latest Firefox (103.0.2) Attempts to fix: Safe Mode - issue still present; Refresh Firefox - issue still present

Is there any advice on how to fix this problem? - Thxs.

How do I set the new tab homepage and allow entering a new location safely?

The moderators and firefox devs keep suggesting "new tab override" add-on but there is a bug in the UI. When you use that add-on, then press control+T it does NOT highlight or remove the existing address. This means when I type a search, it sends my contents AND "moz-extension://....." which given the uniqueness of that URL is a privacy violation as it seems unique enough to identify me personally.

The behaviour I expect is the same as the default tab, i.e. I press Ctrl+T and then can type directly into the address bar without any existing content.

RANT: I've been using firefox almost 20 years and this is the 1 item that may make me move, not because it's an essential feature but because it shows the total disrespect shown by ignoring and fobbing off of users that obviously want this feature. Removing it was part of a slightly user hostile move to force them to see pocket or other social links.

I am running Windows 10 Enterprise Edition 21H2 (Build 19044.1889). When I use Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection and Firefox is currently running, version 103.0.2 (64-bit), Firefox freezes. None of the tabs respond. Other apps are working fine, except for Firefox. There are no crash reports to post here. Appreciate any advice to eliminate this issue.

Hi!

I'm using Firefox 103.0 on an enterprise managed Windows 10 PC. I installed Firefox myself - it wasn't pushed by any enterprise software management. Initially, saving, generating, and suggesting logins/passwords was working fine. But things have changed without my input, and now I get the following behaviour:

1. Firefox no longer asks to save passwords for websites I log into. I have to manually add login/password entries via Settings. 2. Firefox no longer suggests logins/passwords for websites that are already saved. 3. Firefox no longer offers to generate strong passwords for new websites. 4. I can sometimes right-click on a login or password field and choose "Used saved login".

See the attached image of the Logins and Passwords settings section.

Is this the result of some enterprise policies that have been pushed to my PC? Is it a hidden setting somewhere within Firefox that I can change? Is it a Windows policy that Firefox is obeying? Something else?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks, -Paul

Is there any way to clear the "Recently Closed Windows" list in Firefox? [I am running version 103.0.2 (32-bit) .]

If not, can one be added? (I'll have to submit that through the proper channels, of course. But if you have this same question, and do the same, the request will get likely more attention from the right people.)

I haven't found any extension, vetted by Mozilla or otherwise, that does so. (I see many for Recently Closed Tabs, but NOT for Recently Closed Windows.)

There's an option in the list to reopen all of the closed windows, but not to clear the list.

I have noted that windows with only an empty tab are not saved to the list, so that if I remove all tabs from a window and then close it, it is not saved in the list. As a corollary, if I restore a closed window, removing it from the list, and close all its tabs then close that window, it is no longer in the list. So restoring a window, clearing its tabs, and closing the window is a way to get rid of SOME entries, one by one.

BUT there are some pop-up windows that do not display the tab bar or the menu bar and provide no way to force display of those. I have not found any shortcuts or extensions that would let me do so. So there does not seem to be any way to get these windows out of the "Recently Closed Windows" list (without letting them be open windows instead).

All help or advice would be appreciated, so thanks in advance. ~FINIS~

Every time I launch Firefox a message appears on the top right corner asking to update with the following text: "Update available Download the latest version of Firefox"

I have never followed this message for I've suspected fake, but it keeps appearing, and every time more and more often along the day (at the beginning it was only once per launch). This keeps occurring in spite of updating to the latest Firefox update (103.0.2) through the "About Firefox" top left menu on my Mac.

Please advise how to get rid of this annoying message. Is this a potential hack or virus attack?

Firefox 103.0.2 is running but seems to be preventing the iMac screen saver from functioning and appears in the iMac Activity Monitor with a "Yes" notation in the Preventing Sleep column.

Running "Refresh Firefox" seems to briefly fix the problem but it soon returns.

Any suggestions on why this happens and how to restore reliability to the screen saver?

Firefox locking up -- one, two, or up to 8 tabs open doesn't matter!

I've only been having it issue since upgrading to Ubuntu 22.04. Firefox (103.0.2) will lock up (not the pc, it will keep working in other apps). It doesn't seem to matter about the number of tabs open, or what sites I'm accessing. It 'seems' random, and closing Firefox and reopening it seems to work for a short while before locking up again. I'm not a tech guru so I don't know exactly what to include here, like logs, or other info. The other issue associated with this issue is, when it locks, and I restart, Firefox does not start the first time I click on it. I have to click on it again and when I do, it will start, but usually (not every time) I get an error message along with the open home page of Firefox. I have to press the (not sure what to call it) windows key and switch to the error to close it. In the past, I've always had a great experience with Firefox, but this is starting to really be annoying! Especially when I have four of five tabs open and have to do a restart. Firefox doesn't seem to realize it's had a problem so the option to re-open tabs with a restart doesn't happen. So I have to use history, which can be troublesome and confusing, to get back to the pages I was reading. I only open multiple tabs most often when I'm researching an issue and want to 'order' the tabs so I read the ones that look like they apply the most to my research topic. So it really is an annoying issue. So much so, that I have been looking to switch browsers. But I really do not like the large commercial entities not to name names, but I may have to suck it up and install the Big G's browser, the Big C! )^: (note: if you respond requesting additional information, please be kind and offer how to obtain the info! Thanks!)

I am trying to allow push notifications only on certain sites using group policy. In other browsers I can use wildcards to include all subdomains, for example, adding [*.]azurewebsites.net to the allow list would also include https://webpushdemo.azurewebsites.net.

My company has hundreds of intranet sites that could possibly be using push notifications, but I have no way of knowing which ones. I need to be able to whitelist them all without having to specify the exact URL for each one since they are mostly on the same few domains, but so far I have not been able to get it to work using the group policy template.

https://github.com/mozilla/policy-templates/blob/3.10/README.md#permissions

In the README it says you can't use wildcards because the policy is expecting "origins" and not "domains", whatever that is suppose to means.

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

When I attempt to download a large file, for example this one, Firefox often:

  1. consumes my entire available Internet bandwidth, leaving other applications and devices unable to connect to the Internet, or even to other devices on my LAN.
  2. hangs, i.e. the download doesn't show any progress in the Firefox UI

When I attempt to cancel the download, Firefox does not react. Even if I close Firefox, the download continues to absorb the entire available network capacity. The PC (runniong Windows 10 21H2) can not be shut down normally; I can only stop the process by pressing and holding the PC's power button to effect a hard shutdown. When I restart the PC and restart Firefox, Firefox automatically attempts to resume the failed download, with the same results described above. How can I prevent Firefox from hogging all available network capacity for downloads? How can I terminate hung downloads in a more elegant manner? How can I prevent Firefox from attempting to resume failed downloads the next time I start it? I am currently using Firefox 103.0.2. AFAIK, this is also the latest version at this time.
