Hi All

I disabled the group-by option everywhere in my Win 11 home. Now I can open any folder and avoid that useless feature... except if I open the download folder from Firefox.

Details: - if I open my Downloads folder from the desktop shortcut I get it normal (no group-by) - if I click the folder icon close to the downloaded file in Firefox Library/Downloads window, then the windows folder is shown with Group-by enabled - the same happens if I click the folder icon close to the downloaded file in Firefox's download toolbar icon

Does this happen to others? Thank you Stefano

I think this question is best if you posted this in a Windows 11 forum and those using it can give better reply as to why this is set and why what Windows 11 does affects all other software on its system.
