Late last week, something changed in Firefox browser. I used to download csv files and Firefox would open them with the option to save as an excel file. Now it does not. I have to save it as csv then convert it to excel. It also doesn't seem to save my settings on the website I'm downloading from - I always have to manipulate the settings before downloading. It is a huge headache and I have resorted to using Chrome instead.

Hello,

I've set up Firefox to ask before updating, so I was taken aback by the fact that today, an update was automatically installed without Firefox asking me... (I was updated from 97.x to 98.0)

It is especially frustrating, as the mandatory "Restart" screen is broken when using several profiles, at least under Debian.

Let me know if you need more information.

Best regards,

Adonis

Hi

I'm guessing this is because of the latest update to Firefox, but every time a download finishes, the pop-up box for the downloads keeps coming up. I guess this is considered intuitive to let you know a download has finished, but I could do without it. I find it a bit distracting and it gets in the way. Is there a specific option that can disable it in the config?

Thanks

Dear Volunteer :-) I have the latest Firefox version 98.0 and Windows 10. After every download from any website the complete download list pops up below the download symbol everytime. This can be quite annoying when I'm downloading many small things, like pics. Can I deactivate this function? Thanks in advance for your help! :-)

So, after this latest updatr.. I didn't like the settings or no how idea to change them. I thought I could just downgrade to the last version I had... I think it's 99 back to 99.0.2 from what I looked up.. Long story short I don't know how to recover anything and all my passwords and don't even know how to get into my Mozilla account now. Please have mercy as I'm not the most computer literate but im.not completely inadequate. I would really appreciate some help.

Since the update to FF 98.0 I cannot click on a .zip file & have it open to Windows File Explorer. It only allows me to download & save the .zip file and then extract the files from there. I have to click on dozens of these files per day for my job & would rather not have to save each .zip file & then extract the file contents. In Settings > Applications, .zip files are not on the list of file types or applications. Is there a way to add them to the list? Is there some other work-around? Thank you!

This is not a request for help but a comment on the new version of Firefox. Today a new version of FF was installed on my computer and it wiped out ALL my passwords for EVERY account I own - personal and business. I am extremely pissed off because I have to reset all my passwords (which will take days)! For now on when you offer a new version of FF, warn the individual to back up their passwords and user names.

The question is am I going to keep using FF or just start fresh with another browser to avoid this headache in the future.

You have to up your game.

Hello Fred McD,

Thanks for getting back to me. First, my computer screen froze (I suspect some interference of a hacker or something).

Anyway, I turned off my computer, waited several minutes, and turned it back on, again. A message came on the screen said I wasn't "signed in." Then, another smaller window came up saying I could "sign in" by clicking on a blue button. But, that didn't work after three tries, so I clicked on the "closed" button. That allowed me very limited access to the internet. A "black" label announcement said that I wasn't signed in - and that my files were inaccessible to me.

It looks like I need a technician, but I presently have no car and I don't know of any technicians who do "House Calls."

I'm also wary of contacting an online technician. One time a year or so ago, I looked up a phone number for Microsoft - and the guy I spoke with had an "Indian" accent. He sort of helped me for a stiff fee. In hindsight, I realized he couldn't possibly have worked for Microsoft - even though he assured me that he did...

Can you or someone on your staff possibly help me. I trust Mozilla Firefox and I'm prepared to pay a reasonable fee.


Thank You, Eric Vollmer

When visiting the page for an addon at https://addons.mozilla.org/ , the "Add to Firefox" button, which is normally a nice, dark blue, is a "greyed out" hue of the same blue (see attached image), and my mouse turns into the red circle with a line through indicative of a "Do not go" symbol.

This is thoroughly annoying.

I've gone into my preferences, checked to make sure Firefox is updated properly, I'm signed into the addons page, I even checked to make sure addons were synced in my account but I just cannot get it to work!

Any help would be appreciated.

This is the second time I've tried this, got sent back to sign in when I went to see what version of Firefox I'm using! I can't see the text of my mail in gmail inbox webpage using Firefox. I can see the whole message completely when I use the gmail inbox webpage using Edge. I have used gmail inbox with Firefox for years and this has only occurred today. I'm using windows 11, up to date and my Firefox is 97.0.1 (if I remember correctly, I'm not going to check again and have to start this process all over!) If I can't read my mail then is it Edge for me in the future?

I changed my email address in firefox settings a while ago, had no problems since. But recently wanted to use firefox portable. What happens is, i log in with my (new) email, I get sent an authentication code to the new email, i type it in, then it tries to login with my old email and obviously fails (Incorrect password)

I've also tried using a linux laptop, and i can't login with it either, but it works fine on android and windows. If i try it too many times my account locks, don't know what to do

I've been using Firefox ESR for some years. Now I would like to know the best way to use and try the "normal" version of Firefox. Can I install it without uninstall ESR? Or must I do a clean install of Firefox after getting rid of ESR? If this is the case, what must I do to keep my profile, bookmarks, etc?
