After updating to Firefox 8, attachments on php boards (such mp3s or image files) are not recognized filetypes. When I click on them, or right click "save link as", the save window shows the attachment as "Index.php" and only offers to save it as a php file. I have to manually type in the file name and extension and select "All files" under file type to get it to save correctly. This has been happening only since Firefox updated itself to version 8.0. IE still works normally with attachments on php boards, so it's not site problems. Is there some setting, or configuration I can change to fix this? Thanks, Mark

Somehow with these newer versions of FF (I'm using the latest), every now and then I'll be in a tab, when suddenly the tab becomes a new window or instance of FF. This is very annoying, since now the tab and site are no longer loaded into one instance with all my other preferred tabs.

I have no idea what I am doing to produce this effect -- not accidentally hitting a key, it seems to happen when I am moving the cursor, but apart from that .... I don't know.

Anyone know why this is happening?

Is it possible to personalize the size or the Path to your cache, history, temporary files and others? If it is, how can I do it? I explain why. I am willing to create a RamDisk partition where I would place that kind of files with support to a bigger size, that way increasing my speed in Internet, and avoiding permanent writes in the SSD drive. I am in i7 920 CPU, with system and programs working in a SSD drive and have 24 GB of RAM memory.

I don't recall changing anything that would have caused this to happen suddenly. It is frustrating to me because I open a lot of tabs and sometimes can't finish reading or ordering or studying what I need, so I like to leave them open until I can get to them. This is especially disconcerting when, for example, an open tab is lost that contained a half-completed order form that took hours of decision making and note taking to decide what to order. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Hi, I just want to say, I'm done. For the past several years, I've put up with one detrimental change after another from the Firefox design team without any noticeable improvements. Firefox is more bloated than ever and extensions still require Firefox to be restarted. These two changes people have actually clamored for for years. Instead we get UI redesigns that do not enhance an already functional browser.

There are very few things that I actually want from a browser.

  1. '/' to search within page 
  2. drag tabs to create bookmarks 
  3. extensions that are not broken every six weeks by browser updates 

Up until about year ago, that's what Firefox gave me. Now the only one left is number 1. I refuse to switch to Chrome, because it does not support '/' to search. And at the rate Firefox is changing to be more like Chrome, I expect it to be gone in 6 months.

Firefox 8 does away with number 2, so I'm done with Firefox. It's been a good run. I've loyally supported Firefox since 2004. I've promoted it to family and friends and convinced people to convert. Other than Microsoft Word, there is no computer program I have used longer. I hate to change now, but I just can't put up with it any more.

It feels like the designers suffer from the same arrogance lots of businesses display. I feel like the Firefox designers care more about the customers they are trying to get than the customers they already have.

Firefox 8 gave me the impetus to see what other browsers fit my needs. Opera 11 does that, so I am switching. I just wanted you to know why you have driven one loyal user away.

Just updated to FF8. I am disappointed that the the bug that causes Save As to remember where the last file was saved from individual sites instead of just where the last file was saved to has not been fixed. Why is this? How hard can it be to fix it?

For example, suppose I save an image from Motifake to Folder A and an image from ihasahotdog to Folder C. Then I go back to Motifake and save an image. Instead of Folder C, Save As opens to Folder A instead of Folder C. I direct Save As to save the image to Folder A. The I go back to ihasahotdog, save an image and instead of Folder A, Save As opens to Folder C.

Also, this bug happens with all filetypes, not just images.

Normally Firefox would restore the previous session automatically after using and exiting Private Browsing mode. Now it no longer does so. Is there any way to have Firefox automatically reopen the previous session ONLY after using Private Browsing mode? I used this quite often as a way to remember what I was doing in the previous session. I would rather not have to manually restore the previous session (and I would probably forget as well), nor do I want Firefox to reopen my previous browsing session every time.

Hello, Few days ago I downloaded Firefox 8. Today I try google translate (http://translate.google.fr/): it translates without any problem but impossible to have a sound. I verified with Internet Explorer, and there I can listen to google translate, so the problem comes from Firefox. Thanks to solve this problem, because FF is very good and I need google translate too !
