After updating tо Firefox 81.0 the browser stopped saving files and pages. For example, when I click file > save, nothing happens, the files also are not saved when using "save link as" or clicking on a link. The browser seems to perform all other functions flawlessly. If anyone knows what the problem is, pls share any relevant experience.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window
