In Options, I have C:\Downloads⁩ as the location that my internet files are downloaded. Instead, they go to a different location, specifically: C:/Users/**/AppData/Local/Temp.

How do I make Firefox download my files to the correct location?

Thanks.

I was cleaning out my hard drive and deleting old installs of Microsoft Visual Studio Redistributable packages, and I almost certainly deleted the one that Firefox relies on.

I then attempted to start Firefox, getting the error, "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem."

I uninstalled, following the clean install directions, and deleting the "Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/" directory.

Then, I ran the Firefox Installer, newly downloaded, and when running it, it gives the same error, "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem." Selecting "Restore Defaults" has no effect either way. The installer then appears to complete in the background, and the Firefox directory is created, along with the executable.

When I run Firefox.exe, it seems to load the program, but any address I type in fails to begin loading. This includes websites (www.google.com) and help/utility pages (about:config). I'm therefore unable to change any settings within Firefox.

I then tried re-installing the "Visual C++ 2008" and "Visual C++ 2015-2019" packages in an attempt to restore that DLL, but that had no effect after repeating the same steps above (clean uninstall, re-install). Which VC++ Redist Package should I be re-installing? Ideally, I should be able to just get a copy of VCRUNTIME140_1.dll and place it where Firefox is looking for it.

Hello! I have recently installed Xubuntu Focal Fossa, and noticed that Firefox became slow along the way. At first, I didn't know what was the reason, but now, after having purged it and reinstalled it again for the second time, I am pretty sure that it is disabling the title bar which is causing the problem. Enabling it again and restarting the browser makes everything smooth once more. Is there a solution to this? Thank you very much!

I would like to add the Firefox homepage to my favorites list, but when I am on the page (get to it by clicking on the "home" button to the left of the address bar), the "star" button in the address bar is not there (usually would click on that to mark the page I am on to be bookmarked). The address bar does not show an address, so I can not add it manually. What is that address, or are there any suggestions about how I might get this done? Thank you from Linda.

Facebook tab causes a lot of memory-related errors on Firefox 80

I use Firefox on a daily basis. It's open 24/7 on my PC and has 7 pinned tabs because I use them all almost everyday - they are mostly e-mail. It's set to auto-update and I think it recently updated to version 80. Ever since Facebook announced the removal of Facebook Classic and rolled out a Messenger update yesterday, I have been getting weird memory-related issues. Since I don't use Firefox exclusively, I just minimize it but it's always running. When I maximize it back to use it, the Facebook pinned tab does something crazy and all my other software start complaining that Windows ran out of memory and sometimes even crashing them though Firefox doesn't and the Facebook page looks garbled like its CSS gets corrupted. I am using the new Facebook - the one that looks like an app - in Dark Mode. The issue only happens when I use Facebook. The issue started happening yesterday.

Important note: this only started happening yesterday. The only thing that changed was the update to Firefox 80 and the roll out of the new Facebook Messenger update. This PC is rarely shut down. Also, when I am using the network (like downloading games from Steam or Epic Games or GOG Galaxy), the issue worsens and Explorer crashes and closes everything in my notification area.

Current workaround: I closed the Facebook pinned tab and everything seems to be working fine.

Specs: Firefox version 80 (no plugins) Windows 10 version 2004 Core-i7 4790K, 32Gb RAM, SSD + 19 Terabytes total HDD NVidia RTX 2070 Super with latest Game Ready drivers

When I view the blitzortung.org (live lightning map) website I do not hear any sounds associated with the lightning strikes. The normal sound is a very short duration "click". The sound is present when using other browsers but I really hate using Chromium (don't like Google). I am running Debian Linus 10 and I nominally use Firefox ESR. I have downloaded the regular Firefox and the problem occurs with Firefox 80 as well as with ESR 68.12.0.

By opening the PulseAudio mixer while the blitzortung site is opened I have observed that there is a brief flash of the AudioIPC server that coincides with the lightning strike "clicks". My guess is that the AudioIPC server response time is the issue.

Is there any way to get around this issue.

Sound works fine for every other web site.

Urdu words are broken on `Firefox` (`version 80`) and `ubuntu 20.04` on Facebook and main search window (They are alright in wikipedia). Chromium and Chrome are rendering them properly.

I changed the font settings in firefox and selected the same fonts as they were in Chrome but it didn't solved my issue. I've also installed and used Nafees font package as indicated [here](https://askubuntu.com/a/542683/864585). It corrected the shape of characters but words are still broken. Similar [thread](https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=222388) on `linuxmint` forum provided an answer. It uses same fonts as that of chromium but there's an extra option of `"Text encoding for legacy content"` and uses Arabic in that. I can't find this option in my version of mozilla (I'm attaching picture of option available in my mozilla?


Can someone please suggest a solution or can help me to find the option `"Text encoding for legacy content"`.

CSS caching with local websites

Has the behaviour of Firefox with regard to caching style sheets changed in the newest version?

I ask since I develop with Visual Studio and browse the development build with Firefox. Hence the URL will be similar to:

http://localhost:55223

If I modify a css file in the build and refresh the page in Firefox it does not change. It never changes even after a CTRL+F5, nor after starting a new session.

If I browse the site with Edge it does pick up the change instantly after tapping F5 to reload. To see the changes in Firefox it's necessary to rename the css file to force a reload of it.

This only seems to have started happening since the latest build and makes it impossible to use Firefox in the development environment. Is there a "hack" for the settings to force a reload?

I just got a new Mac. I've had Firefox on my old Mac for years.

During installation on the new machine, I must have made a mistake/been too hasty.

In the first instance, I dragged the Firefox icon into my Apps folder, but since it didn't appear in my list of applications, I tried to run it from the .dmg package directly.

Since then, I realised I'm not supposed to do this. So I've deleted everything Firefox from my computer and restarted it several times.

However, each time I now re-download the Firefox installer and go through the steps to instal it, the same thing happens: it only ever runs from the .dmg package. Whenever I delete the .dmg from my computer Firefox stops running.

Can someone help? Thank you!

Evidently when setting up Firefox and importing from Chrome my ID's and passwords, there were some pretty old ones in there. Now with Firefox when I go to a website to login it presents a popup offering a selection of saved ID/PWs for this site. On Chrome, and even Edge, I could just arrow down to an old one and when highlighted hit Delete to clean these out, without having to search for them in a different place to manage that.

How can I do this the easy way with Firefox - an extension or option somewhere?

I do web design. And my problem is that I used to click the refresh button in firefox and it would instantly load an updated version of the pages I was working on.

And the only way to view the updated websites is to go private mode which is very annoying. Is there an option to get around this? Or it's a software problem?
