About 2 weeks ago this problem began. It seems to coincide with a Firefox update. Prior to this, when I would download a file Firefox would open it with the correct program (Word, Excel, Adobe). Now Firefox tries to open all files with Adobe and I receive an error message from Adobe that the file type is either not supported or has been damaged. I happen to know these files are either Word or Excel sent to me by my work. I have been through the help to change the program used, reset it, etc. Nothing has worked. Please help! I cannot perform my work without these files. How do I tell Firefox what program to use to open these files?

Working with a City that uses the IDTplans website to have their engineers submit their different plans for review by City Staff.

Recently, I've had an issue where originally the program gave the option to "Import to Bluebeam" and the typical dialogue box would pop up asking if I wanted to save the program or if I wanted to open it using Bluebeam/Revu.

Now, through Firefox, the Import to Bluebeam only allows me to save the file as a .BFX file onto my PC, which I then have to click on to open. This is a bit of a hassle, as I now have to go and constantly delete the files off my PC when finished with them and some don't always end up on my desktop like intended.

I've tried contacting IDT for support on this issue, but they were unable to help. I have found through Firefox's settings that under the General tab, there is an Applications menu where you can choose how files are handled. Problem is .BFX is not included as one of the file types.

Does anyone know how I can add the .BFX file type or if there is another way that I can fix this issue?

When opening .pdf files, I have set 'Always ask' in Preferences > General > Applications so I can choose whether to browse a .pdf in Firefox or download it. However, when I then choose 'Open with Firefox' in the ask prompt, the file is downloaded as well. This does not happen if I choose 'Open with Firefox' as the default behavior in Preferences > General > Applications. Can anyone provide a fix for this?

Fixing the new way of opening files

Hello,

Starting Firefox 97, opening a file involves downloading it the same way as if I choose to save it. It results in both Download folder and downloads list in the browser being polluted with a million of files I only wanted to open once with a specific app (pdfs, xls, m3u etc.).

Previously Firefox was using a hidden internal folder for saving such files and deleting them later, so Open In App really meant "open, do not save locally". Now any option just means "Save the file to the Download folder and let it be there forever".

How can I fix this unsuccessful UX decision apart from downgrading to an older version?

Thank you.

P.S. "If you dislike new features in the latest version of Firefox, your first reaction might be to go back to the previous version. Rather than downgrading, try getting used to the new features..." is probably the worst suggestion you can possibly give to someone with their workflow broken by a sudden update they can't decline with a feature they never asked for.

Recently, the way downloads/files saved are shown has changed. Instead of the arrow turning blue, there's now a box that pops up and stays up until you click something else. That box and all previous saves are shown every time. (Versus previously, when you could hover over or click the gone-blue icon to see your downloads.)

Is there a way to turn this off? It's pretty annoying.

Hi,

I read a lot about the updates and etc etc..what I need is:

1. When I click on a link with PDF file it's open dialog box "Open with" - this is ok. I click open with Adobe Reader and it opened - this is also ok!

But I don't want that PDF file to be saved in my download folder!!! Or at least to be save in the Temp folder as before.

2. If 1. is not possible which version of Firefox I can use before that changes ? 97,96,95? In the older versions there was no such kind of problem

Thanks in advance

Hello,

In the latest update, the actions for applications was reset to save files. I was able to go to settings, applications to change action for MS Word and MS Powerpoint to "always ask". However, I did not see an entry for MS Excel. The only action I can take with MS Excel is to save file. I would like to have same option to "always ask". How can this be added to the Applications setting, were you choose how Firefox handles files?

Ever since I update my laptop yesterday, Firefox now opens and saves every word doc. I do NOT want to save every word doc, most of them I just want to view. How do I stop it from saving them. I have searched on Firefox, Word and Microsoft, but none of the "fixes" prevented the doc from being saved.

Hello

I need to download files from my email and text messaging application. I no longer get a pop up box asking if I want to save or open the file. It just send it to downloads. Then I have to go there and open the files. This is not convenience or efficient. How can I get the pop up box back?

I sometimes have clients take pictures of their documents and text me. For example to day someone sent me individual pictures of a 10 page document. I had to download and save each of those files. Then open them into the picture program then print them so I could put them all in one .pdf. Whereas before, the box would pop up. I would then chose to open file with the corresponding program. It would open the program then I could print the document.

I am desperate to get the box back. Thanks!

The new feature in which Firefox automatically downloads things seems to have a bug in it. Even after I figured out how to turn the pop-up (to allow you to choose whether you wanted to download or open that) back on, Firefox continues to automatically download EVERYTHING. Even if you chose "Open" instead. This is a serious flaw. Any time someone sends something as an e-mail attachment, trying to open it to look at it causes it to be downloaded, forcing you to go find it (what was it called again? Was that 10557648-6 or 10558748-6?) so you can manually delete something you never wanted to download in the first place. I didn't realize that was happening until my downloads folder was a very serious mess, with several dozen things in it that I never wanted to download in the first place

tl;dr: Choosing to open (rather than download) something does open it, but ALSO downloads it, forcing manual deletion. Please fix.

Also, it would be nice if we didn't have to dig into the "warning, messing with these settings can seriously mess up your Firefox" settings in order to do things like turn off the constant popping up of the download window and turn the pop up allowing choice about whether or not to download something back on. In other words - can those settings please be added to Preferences?

I've not changed any settings-see attached screen shot. So I don't know what changed. I don't know if this is a FF issue and/or a Adobe issue or what. I now have to go into File explorer and delete all the downloaded files. I would appreciate anyone's comments. Thanks

Hello! I updated the my browser to v 98.0 (64-bit) on my Manjaro Linux with 5.10.102-1-MANJARO kernel.

The browser works fine. However, there is one thing which is completely breaking my workflow is the new way Firefox handles its PDF downloads.

Previously: - if I used to click on PDF links such as (http://www.africau.edu/images/default/sample.pdf) see google-chrome img they opened in browser and if I downloaded the PDF it would ask me where to store the file. - Downloading PDF on WhatsApp, University website, LinkedIn like apps, it would prompt the "Always Ask" prompt

After the update the applications settings have changed

Now: It is either "always ask" (even in case of links like: http://www.africau.edu/images/default/sample.pdf which is annoying or if I change the setting to "Open in Firefox" on downloading material, when clicked without CTRL+Click (my previous workflow I simply used to click to download material) opens the downloaded PDF in-place so the loaded University website or whatsapp app is closed.

I am really annoyed and I've cycled through all the application settings and none of them seem to work like before.

How do I fix this?

Thank you so much for your help.

Best wishes.

Hello,

Just recently, PDF files are now automatically downloaded in my designated download location even though that in the Applications settings, I have chosen Use Adobe Acrobat Reader when a PDF file is to be opened.

A software I use for work generates a lot of PDF files and up to a few days ago, they would open in Adobe and then I would decide to save them if needed. Now they open in Adobe but save them on my desktop at the same time (chosen location for downloads).

Is this happening to anyone else? Is there a way to resolve this in the about:config menu?

Thanks for the help everyone.
