I chose the option to open pdf files (for example) on Firefox. But Firefox first downloads them to my "download" directory and only than opens it with Acrobat. My "download" directory now is full with garbage files that I need to delete manually. Is there any good option how to disable this "feature"? I would prefer not to see all the garbage files at all.

I changed "browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel" to false. Doesn't work.

Hi

This is on Ubuntu. I installed Firefox Developer edition to /opt/firefox and made a .desktop file I put in ~/.local/share/applications and this was working well. I added it to favourites so it appeared on the dock, and added some customizations.

But at some point Firefox started to create its own .desktop file at launch when it prompts to be default browser and you say yes, called stuff like "userapp-Firefox Developer Edition-N8YCQ1.desktop". These files fill up ~/.local/share/applications and break my existing file by making a second Firefox icon on the dock so I cannot click the first one. Also my own custom file had Desktop Actions so I could right-click the icon to open a new window or new private window, but the generated ones are barebones.

Every time I delete the "userapp" file, a new one is made the next time I open Firefox (which has now forgotten it is default browser) and the issue is back. Is there an option to disable this behaviour?

Thanks for your help

Lately when i am on Firefox and go to Facebook for some reason the post start out ok. Bu then jump to the next one some times more than on at a time. I have removed and disabled the add ons even went as far as to refresh Firefox. I am still getting the jumping to the next or next 2 or 3 posts. I have no idea what is causing it or why. I have some of the same extensions and more on Chrome and it does not do that. I am using the latest version of Firefox. I do sometimes use Glary and Cc-cleaner but have Firefox as excluded. The fact that it only happens in Firefox tells me that it is not a Facebook problem but a Firefox problem or perhaps both. Any suggestions would be appreciated , I do not want to go to Chrome i have used Firefox for years and like it but now it seems to be hard to stay with. What do i do here If you can help

When I updated to MacOS Monterey (ver. 12.4) all of the dialog boxes in Firefox changed to a non-Roman script. I don't have this problem with any other application. How do I change the dialogue boxes back to English?

I found one user who seems to have a similar problem (see text below) and have confirmed English is the only language selected under Preferences - General (see attached image). I have not downloaded any language packs in any language.


Copied from Mozilla Support <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1351647#question-reply> gizem.dorter 9/24/21, 6:31 AM

I use Firefox on mac OS 11.5.2 and the system language is English so is the main display language in Firefox (so I see File - Edit-View etc. on top in English) However whenever I try to print something or save a page the window that opens up is in Turkish. I tried to change this from preferences -> setting-> general -> language (which shows English US as default with Turkish as the second on the list) but the "remove" button is not active.

The info on Firefox Troubleshooting Information page is like this: (not sure if it is because of one of these)

Internationalization & Localization Application Settings Requested Locales ["en-US"] Available Locales ["en-US","tr"] App Locales ["en-US","tr"] Regional Preferences ["en-TR","tr-TR","el-TR"] Default Locale "tr" Operating System System Locales ["en-TR","tr-TR","el-TR"] Regional Preferences ["en-TR","tr-TR","el-TR"]

I also tried from Mac System Preferences -> Language&Region -> Apps I tried to add Firefox and select the language but language selection is not active (in gray "System Default-Turkish" is written and the message under that says Firefox doesn't support additional languages. For other apps like Word etc. system default language shows as English no problem.

I'm not sure which language you want to remove. Is Turkish the language you want to remove and you can't do this ?

If you can't remove a specific language then this means that you have installed this (Turkish) language as the Firefox locale and have added another (English) language by installing a language pack. You can only remove languages that are installed via a language pack, so if that is the language you want to keep then the need to install the English Firefox locale.

   https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/use-firefox-another-language
   https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/choose-display-languages-multilingual-web-pages 

If the Firefox user interface (toolbars) is in the wrong language or if you want to change the current language then download Firefox in the language of your choice.

You can find the full installer of the current Firefox release (92.0.1) in all languages and all operating systems here:

Hi,

Is there a way to create categories on Bookmarks Toolbar?

I have many bookmarks and I just want to organise them by naming the front of the row. I might need to add empty spacers too. For example, Banking - has about 8 bookmarks, then new row will be Crypto - 11 bookmarks, Social Media - 4 bookmarks, News - 6 bookmarks and so on.

I have searched for this everywhere but no answer as yet. Does anyone have trick they use to achieve something similar to above?

Thank you.

Please give me very simple instructions on getting Firefox not to display trash text. I am sending a screen shot. The trash text seems to be a problem when I open an email in Firefox only, not Safari or Chrome. Problem occurs in both of the two email clients I use: Yahoo or Apple Mail.

--What I Did With The Problem-- I went to the Mozilla Community for what to do about random text showing up and found a couple suggestions for command line “fixes" from a few years back. I don’t know if they would have worked for my problem, since the problem they were fixing didn’t sound exactly like mine. Also it has been 30 years or so since I used a command line interface. Not wanting to start with that now.

I tried reinstalling Firefox. No change.

I tried translating a line of text from Turkish to English (it looked to me of Turkish, and no, I don't know any Turkish) and it translated. But when I tried with Hmong and Spanish, the same line translated to English. I abandoned this “test.”

I tried looking for more help at mozilla.com on Facebook and found a Help page that seemed more concerned with Indian politics and Excel fixes than Firefox.

--Please Help-- This is my default browser and has been for years and years. Now I am using Safari as my default. Yeow! It hurts! I’ve been dealing with this for a couple weeks now. It is getting OLD.

After all these years I am giving up on Firefox and discontinuing my donation to Mozilla. Last year or so I have faced so many unsolvable heads. The latest is that every time I open Verizon (or refresh it) I not only asks me to sign in but asks the security question....sometimes 5 times in the same hour. I've clicked of the double security on the Verizon page. (but it's been turned off for a long time anyway). The point is there is absolutely not one person or place to turn to for help. So goodby Firefox, it's been fun.

I have Firefox running and have several tabs open. I have checked the proper boxes to save and re-open the tabs from the previous close. This works amazingly well; often for vastly extended periods of time, as in months or years. Then I accidentally close the main window holding the desired tabs while having a second window open with some temporary webpage I was using earlier in the day hidden behind another window. Yes, it's almost not too late to save the mistake but it is often late in the evening and I just don't have the time to remember or find the correct steps to restore the lost tabs. Like what just happened to me at the end of my last session. I try and fail, and then try sleeping! Also, if a tab sits for a few sessions without actually being activated by a mouse click, my experience suggests it is lost from history.

Pease for the love of gawd fix this!!!

There are several obvious choices for the programmers to consider. 1.) close the "main" and all other windows open with Firefox. On restarting Firefox open all the previously open windows. 2.) let the user assign or define a master opening page with the desired web pages set as tabs. Then until 100 thousand years have passed always open this page with the defined tabs as set by the user. :-) 3.) do something else even more magical.

Finally, if anyone can update the steps to restore session tabs for version ~102. I've viewed several Q/A on restoring TABS but they seem to no longer apply. I cannot restore from history, so I'll need to go a little deeper into the woods. Thank you so much!
