Hi, FF crashed yet again this month for no reason at all. And was unable to restart, said I can open a new profile. I tried signing in, but got "wrong password", so I tried reset. After password reset I lost all of my bookmarks, which I stored for 3 years for work. Thanks to this cr*p of a browser I am now unable to work! Can someone help restoring my profile settings and bookmarks or are they gone forever and I need to change a browser I use for work, because this bullsh*t is unacceptable?

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.

Hey all, I am having a problem where all downloads fail immediately. Doesn't matter what, they all fail. This started about a month ago. I saw someone else changed something in the About:Config (browser.cache.disk.parent_directory), but I don't even see that line in my config. Also, about the time this problem started I cannot print anything (printer stuck in spooling), and I cannot run any built in troubleshooter. Don't know if these are separate issues or if they are related.

The behavior of FireFox saving PDF files has changed. I am using WIN10, FireFox 98.0.1 and have it setup to use windows default application and always ask where to save for PDFs.

BEFORE the problem: The PDF opens in Acrobat Pro IX. After clicking save I would be asked, where to save. I select the location to save the PDF. Then after this, subsequent PDFs downloaded would be saved to the last saved location. This process would repeat for a new website PDF load and save. This is the behavior I want now.

NOW with the problem: The PDF opens in Acrobat Pro IX. 1. Immediately, after a reboot, the save icon on Adobe is grayed out. I select save as and point to the desired directory. 2. For any subsequent PDF opened, the Adobe save icon is available. Files are saved to the desktop.

Please note I believe I once did get a popup asking where to save and I know I selected desktop.  Since that selection I am no longer asked where to save.

Please note I have looked and tried some of the suggestions at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files#w_choose-a-different-download-folder

but some of this advice needs to be updated for the new FireFox version--ex no JSON file is found at the file location covered in the advice.

I believe this issue started after the last FireFox update. Please help me restore behavior listed above under “BEFORE the problem”. Thanks.

Hi there, I'm hoping someone can help with this. I recently signed into a shared computer with my personal Firefox account, and it automatically imported all my history, my browser extensions, and bookmarks, including personal/secure information that I wouldn't want on a shared computer. I tried signing out and deleting the sites and login information, even going so far as to completely delete all of my browsing history and cookies and signing in with another account, but all the supposedly deleted history and logins and extensions were then transferred to this second account. I have deleted all my data, even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, and all the data from my personal account keeps haunting me as suggestions when I type in the task bar or suggested usernames when I log in to websites. How can I actually delete this information so it's not on a shared computer? Thank you!

When I go to log into my Microsoft Account using their Edge browser, I get the proper login window. (see attachment-upper part) When I attempt to log in to my Microsoft Account using Firefox I get the garbage in the lower half of my attachment, and the page DOES NOT work. It always used to work, and I don't remember changing any settings. I want to use Firefox and Bing Rewards, but if it won't let me log into my Microsoft Account I can't access Bing Rewards! I don't want to use Edge, I have always preferred Firefox. What's going on?! Thanks for any help, Dave

I would love it if I was able to group tabs in Firefox. Many other browsers are able to do this, but I love using Firefox and don't want to switch. However, I will if this functionality isn't implemented. I understand that grouping used to be a feature, so I am assuming it wouldn't be that hard to implement. Thank you!

Recently before the new update I think, when I download something the download icon just turns blue which tells me that the download has finished.

But for some time now, when I download anything the download notification pops up like a window which I have to click something to make it disappear. I don't know why this is happening because I did not install any new add ons from before and after the thing happened. Is there a way to disable it? I don't know why it happened so suddenly but its so annoying because you have to close that notification before you can resume anything else.

Note: The pictures are what I see immediately after the download finished, I did not click anything for it to pop up.

My browser was working just fine this morning. About a half hour ago, I opened it, and the Loading icon just kept going back and forth but the home page does not load (it is still doing that now). A second tab had opened indicating a Mozilla security function but it also wouldn't load. That suggests to me that something Mozilla did resulted in the change. There is no longer a "home" icon showing, and when I looked at the settings, it shows an Acer page as the home page (instead of Google, which has been the home page). All of the extension icons I has are also now missing. What happened and how do I fix it? I would rather not uninstall and reinstall because I would lose all the bookmarks and log-ins. I tried restarting the computer and that did nothing.

Firefox no longer asks whether to open or save files.

Until about a month ago, every time I clicked on a download link to save a file, Firefox asked whether I want to save the file to my downloads folder, or to just open it, which would save it to a folder in my temp folder that would be deleted when I close Firefox.

Now, out of nowhere, it doesn't ask the question anymore, it automatically assumes I want to save it to a folder (instead of "opening" it).

Before anyone tells me to go to Settings -> General -> Applications, and set the file types to "Always ask", I have tried, and there are two problems with it:

  • There are only a few file types in that list. While I can set Firefox to ask when downloading those types of files, anything else (like text files or MP3 files) is saved to the downloads folder without asking. I want it to ask what to do with any file, not just the specific file types in that list.
  • Even for the file types that are available in the list, if I choose to open a file instead of downloading, it is still saved to my downloads folder instead of the temp folder, and is not deleted after I close Firefox.

Also, I'm using Manjaro Linux with KDE, and I also have the Plasma Integration extension installed on Firefox.

I can't login to Lastpass with the latest version of Firefox 98.0.1. Neither the Lastpass extension or attempting to Login to Lastpass via the website will open the password vault. I enter my Lastpass email and password login details then authenticate with 2FA and all I get is the spinning wheel of anticipation which times out after 7 or 8 seconds. MS Edge allows Login and I tried Firefox Ver 98.0 on another PC and Lastpass login works so there appears to be an issue with Ver 98.0.1. Running fully patched Win 10 laptop.
