I am able to find the mailto setting easily. However, there are no clients listed to choose from, no gmail, yahoo, nothing. If I click "choose other" I'm expected to choose an application from my computer. I just want to be able to click a mailto link and have it go out through a new tab via my existing, free, yahoo mail account.

My boss uses Firefox and said he is having a repeat issue with his browser. The issue is that every few weeks Firefox undoes a setting that he has and we cannot figure out why. It could be when you update to a new version.


What happens is that he has file extensions for PDF and ICS files set to automatically open and instead they change to download instead. He then has to download one of each file type and manually change the setting back to auto-open. Again every 3-4 weeks this resets to download.

After I updated my ff browser to the current version, certain websites have had their text all messed up. I first tried restarting the browser and then my computer. Next I tried to purge all cookies. I then tried to remove all add-ons and then purged cookies again, but the issue still persisted.

Firefox version: 105.0.1 (64bit)

OS: Mac Big Sur 11.6

Any ideas on why this is happening or how to fix?

Firefox is hanging on to an ancient dead email address, which it uses automatically when replying in on line forms where I don't have the option of filling one in (form won't send because account is dead), or trying to get into dropbox, etc. (identifies me as not having access under the old email address because access was set up for my current email address).

 I have looked here but don't find the places to go as described at all:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-primary-email-address-firefox-accounts.

Where do I find Firefox's stored email address that it uses for functions as described above?

FYI, I use Thunderbird for email, but not Firefox. I have my proper email address identified as primary in Thunderbird, and the dead address and all emails completely deleted as far as I can find them. Am on Win 7; Firefox 105.0.1 at present, but this has been a problem for a long time. Thank you. Dave

Recently, files that I download from online have been going into Microsoft's very convenient little folder called, "Downloads."  ::: rolls eyes :::

At first, I chalked this up to being distracted and having not chosen the location to where I wanted something downloaded - I have always preferred downloading to a specific location of my choosing. However today, when I went to download a receipt, and thinking about where the best place was to put it, progress for the download was immediately displayed - I was never presented with a window allowing me to navigate to a location.

When it happened the second time, and finding another file I had downloaded a week ago in the "Downloads" folder, I went into settings. I discovered that under DOWNLOADS, in the box, "Save files to:" it has "Downloads." But below that, I have a checkmark beside, "Always ask you where to save files," as I have always done.

I cannot remove "Downloads" from the box. If I clik the "Browse" button next to that box, my only option would be to pick another location, which of course, will simply become another *permanent* download location.

Shouldn't my checkmark by "Always ask" over-ride what's in the "Save files to" box?

How do I fix this?

using thin clients to RDP to a server running Firefox (Windows) The thin client sessions need to update a file (document, PDF, spreadsheet, etc.) Need to be able to open a document (not download it), modify it and save it back to the server. Have tried under Applications changing what application is used to open it and also used Always Ask. Firefox still downloads the document and, therefore any changes are made to the copy the thin client's Downloads folder instead of the original on the server. We have multiple thin clients at the locations in question and users accessing the documents on the shared server need to see the most recent version. Currently I can make changes to a document and save it, go back to the server and open the same file and the changes I just made are not there. They are on the copy in my downloads file. Short version. I need to be able to use thin clients (running Windows) that are connecting to a server (Running Windows) to be able to open say a PDF file without it being copied to the Downloads folder on the thin client. Edit the file (if needed) and when that modified file is saved, the changes go the the original file on the server and not the copy in the thin client's downloads folder. Using the same hardware and IE there is no problem with downloads happening and so any updates made are on the server file.

Hi there, so now a days in the company that I work, there are multiple accounts of the same website, like microsoft or whatever, which is a pain to deal and usually I went using multiple browsers.

For each browser I usually setup the initial pages to be the 3 main used ones like mail + chat + files.

Recently I found out about Firefox multiple-account containers, which is super nice to have all those accounts open at the same time in just one browser with different sessions on each container.

The question is, is it possible to have the startup of firefox, to open multiple tabs in different containers? So, when I open firefox, it opens all main tabs for all containers

I saw that you can have multiple start page with "|" symbol, but that does not play nice together with the containers.

If anyone has a tip on how to make this happen (multiple extensions or changing some config file) that would be very useful.

I'm wondering where the buttons for extensions/add-ons have their locations stored? I.e. I might have a tab-renamer extension button on one row, and firefox relay, privacy mode, and adblocker on another row. Obviously what row and what positions in the row the buttons occupy(relative index perhaps) are stored, but where?

I was trying to customize the toolbar and I can't recall how, but I lost access to my extension shortcuts through the menu list button on the toolbar. I've been since trying to get the button back or replace it, to access my extensions that way but I'm not finding any options to get the button back which I find ridiculous because the button is very helpful on the toolbar in utilizing your extensions. I'm kind of a newbie so I'm looking for help in how to get the button back on my toolbar so I can utilize my extensions that way, please. Thanks.

I designed a "kiosk" for work, that opens multiple tabs automatically and rotates through them. Sometimes the browser will automatically open a tab that goes to mozilla.org, which is frustrating, since it messes with the automatic rotation that I've designed for the kiosk. For example, the latest one opens to "The Tech Talk" article. As much as I don't mind those opening on my personal machine, how can I disable them for this machine? I can't use command line arguments, it has to be done through configuration / extension. I've already disabled all of the session restoring features, among a few other things, that way it can be as simple as possible, without involving human interaction at all. The machine doesn't even have a mouse or keyboard, as we remote into it to work on it.

For example, if a webside had selectable options of answers in a drop down menu, and answer A already was selected, it's fillcolor/highlight would be red - ensuring the same options wouldn't be chosen multiple times.

Hello, I'm trying to install firefox extension on selenium headless browser but I need to configure the extension to use an API key. The documentation of the extension says that I need to download the xpi file, extract the contents and to overwrite one of the js files and to hardcode the API key inside and compress it back to xpi but when I do that I'm getting error that the file is corrupt because when I change the file I'm breaking the add-on signing. I also tried to navigate to about:addons and put the code there in the preferences tab of the extension but I can't interact with input field for the API key. Is there a workaround for this? I went trough the code of the extension and I see that this key is saved in the extension local storage is there a way I can interact with this storage outside of the extension when I set up the browser driver? Any help will be appreciated. I'm using python-selenium 3.141.0
