Every time I run browser it messages me that downloaded file contains a virus or malware, even I deleted the file long time ago. I tried Ctrl+J "Remove from history", "Clear downloads" and Organize/Delete that entry - Nothing helps. Its deleting, but when I run Firefox its appears again and again. This bug is terrible annoying, please fix it.

Firefox created a second Downloads folder/library when it opens a PDF to view in the browser.

file:///C:/Users/Name/Documents/Downloads/NightSkyNotesJan2022OrionDetail.pdf

I seem to remember finding lots of temp pdfs and other files in a temp folder under user/appdata/local or roaming and having to delete this files manually from time to time. Putting the files in an easy to find folder is a good step but my Downloads Library/folder had previously been moved to D:\Downloads via choose new target from the library properties. D drive is an internal HD, C drive is an SSD. Why didn't Firefox just use the existing Downloads library instead of creating a new one on the C drive?

Ideally, if you are viewing a pdf in a Firefox tab it would delete the file if you did not download it so it does not clog up your drives. If I know i want to keep a pdf I would save to my chosen folder and view in Acrobat instead of reading in a browser tab.

I agree with a previous post i saw requesting an option for the user to specify a temp file folder on another drive when viewing pdfs to preserve some life on the SSD boot drive.

My windows 10 pc is set to dark mode, my win 11 pc is set to dark mode, my firefox theme on both pc's is set to dark mode, my phone is on light mode. On my windows firefox which is updated on both devices the top bar will stay dark in dark mode (default firefox theme) but after certain pages it resets itself to light, is this because of my phone being on light mode and themes are syncing over? its extremley annoying and after using the debug: page to try and force darkmode i had to reset firefox due to debug causing issues, now im using an untouched firefox version and it keeps changing from dark mode to light mode!

The update Firefox 100.0.1 ( or 2 ) has a bug: Firefox doesn't "see" the Fritz!Powerline ( LAN over Powerline adaptors ) and thus I can't enter the Fritz!Box. Even typing the IP address of the Fritz!Box doesn't help, because there is "no connecting" beyond the PC. The hardware works, so I can send and receive emails, but I can't access the internet via the firfox browser. Stepping back to 99.0.1, I had to "create a new profile" and all my previous ( before the update to 100.0.1 ) settings were lost, all bookmarks vanished ... I am rather angry, you know? This mail I'm sending via my notebook, as I this connects via 100 Mbit Lan network from an other room and as I had to "register" just to be able to complain ...

I cannot find the answer to this issue in Norton, Windows, or Gmail, so I wondered if it's an issue with Firefox. Shortly after a Firefox upgrade, I started missing content in emails. One example is the verification code from Firefox was not showing on my computer screen when I opened the gmail from Firefox. I had to open the gmail on my iphone to view the verification code. Several emails do not show the message. Also, I am unable to just open an attachment to view now. All attachments are downloaded. This is not a problem on my other computer or iphone, but it started to be an issue on this computer recently.

Thank you

Hello. I just created a master password to protect my website passwords. However, this master password is required to start a session with Firefox. My suggestion is that you do not require the master password to start a Firefox session, only to access the passwords information, or to create and remember a login password for a new website. It is a hassle to enter the master password every time I want to use Firefox. Or should I keep firefox open the entire day?

Firefox 100 and OWA Drag and Drop Problem

Hello,

Before the release of Firefox 99, the drag and drop function of e-mail using OWA (Microsoft Outlook) stopped working. In the last version of 99, it started working again (and I was very happy). My browser just updated to 100 and it stopped working again (and, of course, Firefox recommends not downgrading).

This is getting very frustrating, as I use Firefox at work and it is actually a lot of time wasted, going in and attaching files without drag and drop. I am on the verge of abandoning Firefox as my browser, since these features work in both Safari and Chrome. However, I do like the usability and security of Firefox, so I am hoping you can fix this very soon.

-Chris

No matter how many articles I read on how to get my passwords to save, no matter how many times I check the settings yes they're still all correct, after an update (I think) firefox no longer asks to save passwords and doesn't volunteer any information about them.

I have been trying to load a particular website. https://metrobyt-mobile.com I can get it on other browsers. The funny thing about it is any other website comes in on Firefox. There is no problem with getting to any other website with Firefox. It is this specific website!! I can guess but I don't know that maybe that server is not responding when the translation from words to numbers is not working or is broken in some other way and does not respond.

So, back in the days when I installed Firefox, it would automatically pin it to the taskbar. When I opened Firefox, the newly-opened Firefox window appeared separated from the pinned icon in the taskbar. I liked this because it allowed me to open new windows faster. Now, I had to uninstall and re-install Firefox (the last version as of today) because of some problem. Now, this separation no longer occurs. If I open Firefox, the opened window and the pinned icon in the taskbar become the same thing. How can I fix this?

I am using Windows 8 Pro btw.

I attached a screenshot to show how it looks like.

Sometimes, if the computer is offline and Firefox is open, when the computer goes back online Firefox can't connect to any website, with the page "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.". The only fix is to close Firefox and open it again. Going offline doesn't always do this, and while I'm not sure of what exactly causes this to happen, a way to easily reproduce it is:

  • Turn off the Wi-Fi;
  • Reboot the computer;
  • Open Firefox;
  • Turn on the Wi-Fi;

After the computer is connected, refreshing the page sends you to "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.". You have to restart Firefox.

A way that doesn't 100% reproduce it, but works enough times, is to reboot the computer without turning off the Wi-Fi, and open Firefox as soon as possible (before the computer manages to connect to the router, which is the part that isn't always consistent). Rarely, it happens after suspending the computer, or after a disconnection due to an unstable connection. I can reproduce it in Firefox's safe mode. I have a hunch that maybe this is related to networking drivers.

I'm using a Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ARE05 (Network controller: Intel Corporation Wi-Fi 6 AX200 (rev 1a)), Linux NixOS 22.11 (I don't know about Windows).

Ask me for any log you might need.

This is kinda a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1078253, except that their solution does nothing to me.

Currently the fonts at the top of the page (tab headers, address bar, search bar, booksmarks) are all set to a larger font. I don't know how they got changed but they are too big now. If I try change font size and style in settings nothing happens. It is not how it looked on first install and using another browser has font sizes of a more practical size. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling Firebox and also doing a refresh and it doesn't change anything.

Its almost like a bug that has made Firefox set these fonts larger than they should and not able to modifying them again.

I cannot for the life of me work out how to fix this and its very off putting to the point, short of a full OS reinstall I'll have to start using another browser.

Hi,

I'm looking for a plugin or website that is able to convert voice to text capability on Firefox. For Chrome there are many solutions (VoiceNote II, Voice Recognition, Dictanote). And I need to use it on firefox.

In firefox, as I think, permissions settings/UI haven't yet been sorted out however, so permission can't be granted to use it by the user, so it can't be used.

Thank you!

Using new computer and Firefox settings synced from previous computer. Two major issues started when using the new computer: When opening links in new tab (manually by right-click link and chose option to open in new Tab) nothing happens. The URL appears in the tab address line but the web page doesn't load. Pressing enter doesn't fix it. Copying URL and opening new tab, and pasting URL, doesn't load the page either. This can occur when first open Firefox, or can be after some time.

The other issue is Gmail often showing "Not connected." and retrying. The computer is connected to the internet, and can access web pages in other windows in Firefox, or in Chrome. Google apps, such as Keep, also exhibit unable to connect to Google. Have to close Firefox to fix this and can often return shortly after signing into Gmail again.

Have tried disabling extensions and add-ons, resetting preferences and tab settings, clearing temp files and cookies, resetting Firefox, uninstalling Firefox and re-installing. All to no avail.

The previous computer doesn't have these issues.
