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!

I use a lot of excel files with ETM and when I pull a report, I need it to open with excel in a CSV file. That open no longer appears in the setting list.

When I try to open the report, it just takes me to a folder to download the report and then I have to manually open it with excel.

Can that please be fixed. It was working fine and then I noticed my firefox was updated last night, and this morning I can no longer use it correctly.

changes to file download locations in version 98

Re: Changes to how file downloads are handled in Firefox version 98: Personally I don't consider this an enhancement. Since I upgraded to v98, every file I open online, even if I'm not saving it, is saving a copy of itself onto my desktop. (To be precise, D:\OneDrive\Desktop). And I look at up to 20 files per day, so this is getting pretty annoying.

My regular downloads directory still exists, and that should be where temporary copies of files are being stored prior to my closing or saving them (right?). But it's empty.

Note that under Settings > General > Downloads, the default is set to Always Ask rather than one specific directory. However I believe that is for the "permanent" version of the files, not the temporary version.

How do I get Firefox to revert back to the pre-98 defaults for the temporary versions of files? I was hoping this change was a mistake but I see that 98.01 did not fix it and from the article referenced above, it looks like changes were made deliberately. And the desktop is clearly not a place where temporary files should be being placed.

Thanks.

I want to just open a PDF attachment and not have it download. FIrefox would contstantly reset a setting to where it saved it and I would change it back to open with Adobe. Now I just noticed even though the settings have not changed it is saving the attachment in addition to opening it. It is very annoying. I do not want to save the attachment, I just want to view it. I do not see any other setting to check or change.

When I click on a WAV file or try to open an Excel attachment, I only get the download window. I went to settings and tried to change the default program to open them, but I don't have WAV or Excel in my list and when I try to search for it, nothing comes up. What am I doing wrong? It was all fine before the update from Tuesday, 3/8/22. After that update I had to go in and change all the programs back to the ones I had set up for pdfs, word docs, mail, jpegs, etc, so it clearly reset everything back to Firefox defaults, but why are those file types missing from my list and not coming up in the search window so that I can assign a program to open them?

Does anyone else have an issue opening documents? All of a sudden Firefox no longer allows me to open certain files. When I go to the settings, the only applications that I have options for are PDF, AV1F, XML, SVG and WebP Image. I seem to have lost the ability to selection "open", "save" or "always ask" for all other documents such as Word, Excel, etc. Screenshot included.

This seems to have happened out of nowhere.

I just switched to Windows 11 and Firefox have a strange behaviour. Maybe also just firefox updates the behaviour like removing back action when clicking backspace some time ago. When a download of a PDF starts it is configured that it will ask me what to do. So in general I use open with Adobe PDF Viewer. This also works. But the file is anyway in my Download-Folder. I was used that it will be saved in the temp folder %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Temp and then also deleted after a while. If I want a file saved for a longer time I save it explicitly to a location I want to have it.

Any idea what is wrong in the Windows 11 or Firefox (currently 98.0.1)

Thanks a lot!

Hey Mozilla!

I'm a big fan of your product, and I use it on my Windows 10x64 PC and my Note10+ Android 12 smartphone.

Since your last update, there is a problem (on the PC mozillla browser): when a click a link to download a file, automaticly is open a new window that OPEN the file. Before the last update, when I was click-ing the link, I remember that the browser was open a small window and promt me to OPEN or to SAVE the file. Now, that function is missing. (I have checked different web sites, including whatsapp for desktop, the problem is persisting).

I haven't changed any settings, the box is checked for "Always ask you where to save files".

Thank you!

Best regards, Bogdan

Since the latest update of Firefox, I now notice that each time I download anything the downloads icon in the toolbar expands the download history and remains in front of the browsing window until I click out of it. This behavior is reminiscent of the Chrome browser opening a pop-up bar every time I download anything which had to be manually closed — a regular irritant. I can see where some may prefer to have the pop ups, but I don't appreciate it becoming the default. Is there any way to disable this behavior so that it downloads in the background as it used to?

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

I have selected the following settings to no avail:

"Choose how Firefox handles the files you download form the web or the applications you use while browsing:" I have set every file type to "always ask", yet when I click on a .kmz, it always prompts me to save it when I want to open it with Google Earth instead. I also tried the setting to default to opening with Google Earth, yet it still prompted me to save the file. I have rebooted to try to make this setting kick in and still no luck. Perhaps this is because the option on the Firefox list is .kml, not .kmz? How do I get it to give me a choice or default to opening with Google Earth?
