March 9, the progress of download status now comes on after each download, not when I simply ask to see the status. this is annoying as it continues to list all downloads during the session. I have to hit the icon to not see the status after each pop-up, this was never a problem until this morning.

When I go to download a ZIP file, it will always attempt to download the file directly rather than letting me open it with WinRAR. When I go into the browser settings I see that some other file types have options to choose how they're handled, but there's no entry for ZIP files. I've tried refreshing my Firefox install and yet the issue still persists.

I used to have this option before I reinstalled Windows a while back (where I kept my files but not programs). I don't know for sure that that's what caused this to start, but the timing would line up.

Starting yesterday, the button next to the address bar for download progress will randomly open as if I clicked on it. Happens whether or not something is downloading and whether or not there's anything in the download history or not. I haven't changed anything with Firefox. No new addons or settings changes. I didn't change anything on my system, either. Same day as any other. Just started happening.

changes to file download locations in version 98

Re: Changes to how file downloads are handled in Firefox version 98: Personally I don't consider this an enhancement. Since I upgraded to v98, every file I open online, even if I'm not saving it, is saving a copy of itself onto my desktop. (To be precise, D:\OneDrive\Desktop). And I look at up to 20 files per day, so this is getting pretty annoying.

My regular downloads directory still exists, and that should be where temporary copies of files are being stored prior to my closing or saving them (right?). But it's empty.

Note that under Settings > General > Downloads, the default is set to Always Ask rather than one specific directory. However I believe that is for the "permanent" version of the files, not the temporary version.

How do I get Firefox to revert back to the pre-98 defaults for the temporary versions of files? I was hoping this change was a mistake but I see that 98.01 did not fix it and from the article referenced above, it looks like changes were made deliberately. And the desktop is clearly not a place where temporary files should be being placed.

Thanks.

Hi!

I am a businessman from Greytown, South Africa and need help with my Firefox Downloads setting.

I have my Downloads set to "Always ask you where to save files." Up until this morning, this brought up a Downloads dialogue that, among other things, gave me the option to either open an attachment or save it to a folder of my choice.

However, as of this morning, this setting no long works. Firefox automatically saves clicked attachments to my Downloads folder. I have checked the Downloads setting and can confirm that it is set correctly to "Always ask you where to save files." I am using Firefox Version 98.0 (64-Bit). Can anyone help? I'd really be grateful as automatic downloads is going to cause me a lot of headaches.

Regards....

I want to revert to the previous behaviour but cannot find how to do it. Can you please advise?

Hi,

Up until very recently, I've been able to download files without issue. Every time it'd ask "do you want to open or save?". It's no longer doing that, and instead saves them by default. How do I revert this back to asking what I want to do?

I save a lot of images from certain sites, and prior to me finally installing the latest update because your stupid system notifies me every few hours of an update and I dismiss 20 times a day for weeks on in.... I found that this latest update ruined firefox even further because now every single time I download an image, it pops the stupid download list on top of everything till I click somewhere instead of silently downloading like it used to do. I found no options at all for disabling this new terrible feature that you for some reason forced on us against our will yet again.

I just had a Firefox update today and now when I save a pic or save a video it does a new really annoying drop-down notification at the top from the download icon area which stays there until I manually remove it. In the past I only saw an activity up there when I downloaded programs to my downloads folder, but not when I simply saved an image or video to my other locations. I do not want this stupid dropdown notification appearing, and it's getting bigger and bigger the more pics I save, how do I turn it off? It's ridiculous. I save videos from twitter and images like memes all the time and never have this happen, it just saves it and there is nothing more going on to worry about (which is what I want), it's only started today after the update so it's a new feature. I looked in about:config but I could not work out which setting it is so didn't touch anything. Thanks for your help.

Hey Mozilla!

I'm a big fan of your product, and I use it on my Windows 10x64 PC and my Note10+ Android 12 smartphone.

Since your last update, there is a problem (on the PC mozillla browser): when a click a link to download a file, automaticly is open a new window that OPEN the file. Before the last update, when I was click-ing the link, I remember that the browser was open a small window and promt me to OPEN or to SAVE the file. Now, that function is missing. (I have checked different web sites, including whatsapp for desktop, the problem is persisting).

I haven't changed any settings, the box is checked for "Always ask you where to save files".

Thank you!

Best regards, Bogdan

Since a recent Firefox update, the download button/icon in the task bar now shows the files(s) every time a 'Take A Screenshot' is used. It is becoming very annoying and the icon usually lights up in blue and the arrow becomes a circle when downloading. Can the window which opens with a list of files and 'Show All Downloads', when not selected to do so, be disabled? Thanks.

Lately when I download an image, from Google expanded images on the right side for example, the download drops down a menu. If I have made multiple downloads the list gets longer and now blocks the area of the page I am working on. I don't need this downloads drop down menu and cannot find a way to stop it. I would prefer if it didn't display unless I clicked on it.

I have searched the net but can't find any answers. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Tom.

Does anyone else have an issue opening documents? All of a sudden Firefox no longer allows me to open certain files. When I go to the settings, the only applications that I have options for are PDF, AV1F, XML, SVG and WebP Image. I seem to have lost the ability to selection "open", "save" or "always ask" for all other documents such as Word, Excel, etc. Screenshot included.

This seems to have happened out of nowhere.
