Cannot change home page to a url. ALL attempts result in Firefox ridiculoucly tyring to save a file called, "UpdateBrowser.rar"

After refresh to default, and home page is default Firefox. Home page opens to the defuult. Home page icon links to default. HOWEVER, it's iike the browser remembers the url that was attempted to be the home page, and the same ridiculous "UpdateBRowser.rar" keeps happening when that url is entered to go to! WTF is going on?

Please add an option to disable saving images as webP. This is useless. If this is not going to get addressed in the next update I will, among many others uninstall Firefox and use a different browser.

WebP is a garbage format. Maybe it's not, maybe it's great, but it still is not widely supported yet. So pull your heads out of your *** and fix this sh**.

Thanks

Firefox continues to indicate I am using Windows 8. I have NEVER used Windows 8 in my liftetime. I use Windows 10 and after locating the program compatibility location to change to Windows 10, Windows 10 isn't an option. I changed my OS to 10 in your box below. Why? I don't understand this.

I have Windows 11, ver 22H2, on laptop. I use Nord VPN and Webroot antivirus which I have been using several years. This event just started occurring a week ago, and I can't find any Google references to it. As soon as I open Firefox a pop-up appears that says: "Quit your browser app. For Threat Protection to start working with your browser, you need to quit it first. Quit Firefox and click Continue." Then there are two clickable choices, Continue and Cancel. I always click Cancel because I don't know what this Threat Protection is. Then the pop-up keeps reappearing. About every five minutes it pops up and two or three times in a row after I click Cancel. It does this as long as Firefox is open. I have tried disabling Nord VPN and it made no difference. I have run complete scans with Webroot and it found nothing. I have tried uninstalling Webroot antivirus & rebooting and it made no difference, the pop-up still appears. I have tried downloading Malwarebytes and running a complete scan while Webroot was uninstalled, and it found nothing. I am out of ideas. I fear it is malware, but Nord VPN did not stop it, and both Webroot antivirus and Malwarebytes scans find nothing. I would appreciate any help.

I recently had hard drive problems and during the ensuing melee, I discovered that Firefox has stored well over 100k files with the general name {xxx...}.final. Being the curious sort--and given that these boogers are taking up almost 1Gb--I looked at a few and they appear to be related to websites that I visited. I can see keeping some recent things around, but some of this goes back, literally, to the day I bought my PC. Um...that's a lot of files and a lot of space for places I visited once and will never go to again. Some of the websites no longer exist, so obviously those files are wasted space.

I am unable to find much about this on the web, either via Google or the help here. A few people have brought it up, but no one seems to know what to do. The help here goes nuts with the search term "final" and brings up a plethora of hits containing "finally" and so forth, but nothing useful. "}.final" isn't much help, either.

The path is C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile name>\storage\default

Questions: 1) Can some or all of this be deleted? 2) Is there a way to tell Firefox not to be so anal about keeping so many useless things?

Given the sheer quantity of these things, it would make future backup/restores easier if I could trim some of the fat, but I don't want to mess things up, either.

Thanks...

I am using Firefox 109 on my MacBook Pro (M1 chip), and after I upgraded to version 109, the application menu stopped working. When I click on the pancake icon in the upper right corner of the screen, the drop down menu becomes visible, but none of the items on the list are responsive. Fortunately, I can access passwords and the like by going to preferences under the Firefox menu on the left of the screen, but it's less convenient. Can I fix this on my own, or do I need to wait for the next upgrade?

I do my Firefox updates manually. I am currently using version 108.0.2. When I click on "about", it says I should "Update to Partner Removal". It usually tells me to update to the next version that is available. What is Partner Removal? Is it a legitimate update? I can't find anything on the website regarding this. Why does it not tell me to update to version 109?

Thank you for your help.

As mentioned Firefox, unlike Chrome, does not ask me where I want to download a file on my computer. I have it checked to "Always ask me where to download the file" and yet it still does not. Additionally when downloading PDFs it opens another tab as a preview for the document in question that I have just opened, but I do not want it to it is quite annoying. Thank you for your help.
