Why is firefox automatically downloading strange files I've never seen before? (MEUIVFJ-.htm and 3tHMwYhc) They look a little untrustworthy. My download dropdown suddenly showed me that one had been downloaded, and then a while later the other one was downloaded. Are these actual Mozilla files? Or are they some kind of scam/trojan/spyware? I just realized that two were downloaded last month as well.

Regarding PDF downloads in new web browser

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.

I was downloading a 3 GB file from Mega. Unfortunately this Mega file hosting web site downloads the file into a temporary location through the browser instead of downloading it like a normal download.

Anyways, while I was downloading, at 54% the download got interrupted saying transfer quota exceeded and I need to wait 4 hours to continue download again. and my girlfriend didn't know this so she thought my download already completed and deleted the file :( After 4 hours of waiting I was unable to continue the download since the file is no longer avaliable anymore :/

Now my question is, where this 1.5 GB file gone? I have already checked %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\myprofile\storage\default\https+++mega.co.nz but it's not there, the folder size is 102 KB. I checked %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\myprofile\storage\temporary too but that folder is completely empty. Also checked AppData\Local\Temp as well but it's not there either. The size of my Temp folder is just 10 MB.

While I was searching this, I saw some people saying (if I understood correct) the temporary download location of Mega isn't in hard drive, but in the RAM instead. I want to ask can anyone confirm is this actually true? and if so what happens to that space in RAM when download interrupts like this? Does it delete it from RAM automatically when I close Firefox?

Can anyone with knowledge in this regard please help me with this problem :( I am on SSD and already have a very few space left and I don't want to clutter my SSD with 1.5 GB unusuable file :(( Neither want 1.5 GB space got occupied in my RAM :((

Thank you so very much in advance.

Since somewhere last autumn, when I download any file from any website, the browser vanishes without any warning on the moment I navigate to the destination folder.

I maintain 2 websites (Joomla), and last week both required uploading a few files in Phoca Download to make them available to members. Now also on this upload the browser was completely gone when I navigated to the folder where I kept the fles.

I use Firefox since about 1995. I looked in about:Crash (first time ever), there were to reports, both unsubmitted: 69990c58-1a5c-40a3-9141-666607416103 6/22/2020, 1:23 AM e6f0688e-73e4-4c19-8e0a-01ec3c28e996 2/22/2019, 4:09 PM I have submitted them both now.

I would like to download .exe files to the TEMP folder and run them so they do not clutter up my downloads folder. Many of the programs that I use they require me to go to the website and download the new version, therefore I need to manually go in and delete the file. There was OpenDownloader² that is not supported anymore when Firefox was updated beyond version 57. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1TFcEXMcKrwoIAECIVyBU0GPoSmRqZ7A0VBvqeKYVSww/edit#gid=0

I have done a ton of research and have not found any solutions that will work yet. I know Firefox does not officially support this for security reasons, but I know that Edge supports this. An extension will work, but I have yet to find one.

Does anyone have a solution that will work on the latest version of Firefox?
