Hi! Since a few months I can't open the opening folder after downloading a file.

Normally, I download a file, then click on the button "open containing folder" on the right of the download file. the default file manager opens up then at the level just above the file downloaded. But, a few months ago, this stopped working: Clicking on "open containing folder" launches the file manager but directly at the level of the file: And this makes the file manager launches the file by the way with the default program.

How can I do a search on the Mozilla and Firefox web sites (in help or community) using AND search terms instead of the default OR searches.

Specifically, I am trying to search for "PDF" AND "Search" -- for problems with finding things in PDF files. But the search, as performed, finds hundreds of pages with "PDF" OR "Search", so mostly irrelevant.

Hello, Good day. I am using firefox in windows 10.

I have a peculiar issue of menu language automatically changing to arabic. I manually changed it many times but it changes back to Arabic often more than 10 time in the last 3 months.

Wondering if this is a bug or act of any malware or virus... or automatically changing based on region of use... but there is no option to choose / enable/ disable regional changing configuration.

Kindly advise how to prevent Firefox changing automatically to Arabic.

Thank you.

I have alot of open tabs on mobile phone and want to view - and then delete - each of the tabs on my desktop because it's massively slowing down my mobile. I am able to open on my desktop the synced tabs - although I can only open them either one-by-one, or the entire lot of 1,000 of them - but cannot seem to delete singular ones or a few tabs at a time when are no longer needed. Is there a way to delete a synced tab individually from a connected device that's NOT the device where the tab is currently open/ originally saved? Thanks!

Hi. I'm a user of OpenVPN which uses TAP (a virtual network adapter) to establish VPN connections. Sometimes I need to switch VPN on/off when browsing websites, but I didn't find options like "select a network adapter to use" within Firefox. Currently the only solution is to connect/disconnect OpenVPN to switch VPN on/off, but it's quite inconvenient for me.

I've tried searching for add-ons about this, but a possible one named "FoxyProxy" has dropped this feature recently because of the changes about Firefox API, so I think my problem can be no longer solved by add-ons.

Any solutions to this? Can I have this feature provided by Firefox with updates if there isn't any workaround for now?

Is there a way to change this? It drives me up the wall, especially when having to restart multiple times -which happens a lot due to several factors. I have vision problems and need the thumbs to show to find my way around quickly.

Hi,

I'm getting bored with firefox...

Spent 2 hours trying to find on internet or compare the about:config of my laptop/desktop to try to see what the problem.


on desktop on some website: when i click on a link, lets say an ssd deal for instance, i cannot reach the page and a small notification appears on right bottom corner (not below bookmarks like a popup) saying : "redirection canceled" and bring me back to the original page. on laptop same version of firefox (and same general settings) but no such problem, i started to compare each value in about:config but i stoped before becoming crazier.

whatever option i disable (website tracking) its still there, if i open in new private tab, the same.

So bored of spending so much time on some stupid option it seem i cannot have control over it, as i'm sure its just a simple value i have to change somewhere but cant find the info.

So please, if i was clear enough it my description, tell wich command i should change to get rid of it. Alternatively: is there a way to copy the config from one firefox to another? (like this i might copy config from laptop to desktop.

thx in advance for your eventual help
