When I download almost any type of file, Firefox nicely asks whether I would like to always save the file, or always open it with some program. But for .jpg files, it makes a blanket, hard-coded assumption that I do not want to preserve my choice. I cannot add .jpg to the list of actions in the preferences. The authors of the browser forcibly mandate that a .jpg download must go to a popup, and the user's preferred action cannot be maintained internally.

This is a mistake. I realize someone thought it was a very rational idea. it is not. This is a bug.

How can I work around this mistake in the Firefox design?

Hello, this appears to be a Firefox-exclusive problem as any other browser used will fix the issues listed below. However, when I am using Firefox, the following happens:

  • I am unable to like or retweet anything, and cannot follow any accounts. Attempting to do so resets them if I refresh or click off the tab.
  • Notifications do not go away even when I view them
  • Any tweets I have cannot be deleted
  • Any info on my profile cannot be changed
  • I cannot log out

I've tried multiple ways to fix this, including clearing my cache, running in Safe Mode, and removing my saved login. None of these have worked, unfortunately. I've reached out to Twitter Support, but soon realized I wouldn't hear back about specific problems at all. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?

I have version 75.0 of firefox. I was browsing as normal and it suddenly locked up. If I type in the address bar then search suggestions appear but nothing loads in the main window. Non of my favourites load. Clicking the new tab button doesn't load a new tab. The menu button opens but the options don't load. I have tried uninstalling. I have removed any sign of mozilla / firefox from my program files and program files x86. If I right click on the main window, the menu that appears has pretty much every option you could imagine. theirs so many option that it scrolls off the screen. on one occasion my laptop blue screened (which it doesn't normally do) but when it came back on firefox worked again until I turned the laptop back on again the next day and it was broke again

I already upgraded my home's internet speed up to 1Gb. It included a router's change. The fact i, when i do a speed test on Firefox, it does reach only 600 Mb download speed and 100 upload. If i do the same speed test with another browser, i get 900 MB download and 100 Mb upload. So , how do i configure Firefox in order to get same values than Edge and Chrome browsers? I understand it might has to be with some parameters in about:config . Could you give me some light on this? Thanks

Google Maps Crashes

Firefox just upgraded to 80.0.1 . . . on Mac OS High Sierra . . .

  1. 1 Open new browser window
  2. 2 Go to : http://www.Google.com/maps/
  3. 3 paste or key an address into the "Where?" field, and
  4. 4 BOOM Firefox immediately closes the Google window.

On a Macbook Pro, running Mac OS High Sierra, 10.13.6 FireFox version 75.0 works perfectly, and Google Maps works perfectly.

(Except for the annoying notices to upgrade, which is what was done, finally got tired of getting the upgrade notice so she upgraded and BOOM Firefox doesn't work on Google Maps. So now she's using Safari for Google Maps)

-(

Tip : If the upgrade doesn't work, then don't send the upgrade notices!

New versions of Firefox are very slow for download speeds. 50% of what is available from my provider. Safari is at 100%. Is this from security and filters ?

Recently updated to the latest 2 versions and Firefox is failing download speed wise. Upload speeds are what they should be. I have ran speed tests from multiple sources and all return a similar range - 40-60Mbps. My provider speed is 100Mbps. I have run the same tests with Safari and it is operating at 100% speed wise. Are new security features and / or tracking filters responsible for this slow down ?

Whenever I open a youtube video, go to other tabs, come back after some time and unpause it, it either takes 1-2 seconds for it to start, or the video unpauses without sound, which comes back after 1-2 seconds. Is this normal? If it is, is there a setting I can change?

Well, I don't know what changed! My antivir tells me that I got a tracking cookie but they want money to delete it. So I searched and found an add on called "NoScript" who could maybe do the job for me.

But my problem is: I am (always) online with Firefox. If I want to download/install ANY add on, the site always tells me "Only in Firefox - Download and install now". As I am online with the newest version (79.0) , I absolutely don't understand this message. Okay, so I gave it a chance, hit the button and "installed" what's allready on my computer. But after that there is no change! If I want the add on, I still get the same message: "Only in Firefox - Download and install now"

What can you do for me or is there (really?) anything I have to change to be able to install AddOns again?


Nun, ich weiß nicht, was sich geändert hat! Mein Antivirus sagt mir, ich hätte einen Tracking Cookie, aber die wollen Geld für die Löschung. Also have ich gesucht und ein AddOn namens "NoScript" gefunden, das diesen Job möglicherweise erledigen kann.

Doch habe ich ein Problem: Ich bin (immer) mit Firefox online. Und wenn ich IRGENDEIN AddOn herunterladen/installieren will, erklärt mir die Seite stets "Nur mit Firefox - Laden Sie Firefox jetzt herunter". Da ich immer mit der neuesten Version (79.0) online bin, kann ich diese Nachricht nicht absolut nicht verstehen. Okay, also versuchte ich es einmal, klickte den Button und "installierte", was bereits auf meinem Computer ist. Doch danach hat sich nichts geändert! Wenn ich das AddOn will, bekomme ich nach wie vor die selbe Nachricht: "Nur mit Firefox - Laden Sie Firefox jetzt herunter"

Was könnt Ihr für mich tun oder gibt es da (tatsächlich?) etwas, das ich ändern muß, um wieder AddOns installieren zu können?

When I key www.<website>.com in location bar and hit enter, Firefox uses http://www.<website>.com, not httpS://www.<website>.com, to find the website. Most of the time the http:// version does not resolve to a website. It just hunts and hunts and hunts. This same thing happens many times when I click on a link in gmail which I open in Firefox.

Since we are all supposed to be using httpS:// these days, why doesn't Firefox default to https://?

Is there some setting that I'm missing?

Thanks, Caitlin

Hi,

Help me disable your new method of always sending a promo popup to my screen whenever I go to the internet. My work with information requires intense concentration and your unnecessary popups are very disruptive. When I want to update to a newer ver of FF after I check it out thoroughly as I ran into lots of work as one of your updates caused me to loose hundreds of passwords, EOS.

I look forward to hearing positively from you soon.

For the last at least 25 releases, FF has gotten continually more hostile to someone like me who is visually impaired. I had read that FF was going to stop using the hamburger for menus because screen readers couldn't process it. That has not happened. Hamburgers, paper airplanes, icons instead of text, triple dots, and selector switches to turn settings on and off are all anti-accessibility. I don't like any of those features anyway. What is wrong with words like, "Menu," "Submit," or "Send"? This has been getting worse and worse over time. I don't know if the developers for FF are simply oblivious to the problems that they are causing or if they know but don't care. Gmail is worse but it seems like FF is following Google. What a horrible thing to do for accessibility, among other things. At least, though, Gmail on my phone can use the pinch technique to make the text larger. Firefox on my Android phone will not allow that. I cannot enlarge text in any window in the native FF phone app. This anti-accessibility is to pervasive it seems deliberate. Why is this being done????

Hello to all, I work with Firefox 75.0 (64-bits) and I keep it always updated. My telecomprovider offers me regularly the invoice in pdf-format. When I download it, the filename is changed into 8 characters, not being a sensible or readable name (ie "7fH5Rsd3.pdf"). When I asked the the provider to change this, it was clear it already is. Other customers working with IE or Chrome etc. don't have this problem. It was suggested this could be Firefox itself. The strange thing is this happens only with this provider and apparantly only with me. Everywhere else pdf's or any other file downloads just fine with their respective names. So, what could be the cause? One obscure setting in Firefox? Or should I look elsewhere? BTW: this is happening with all previous versions of Firefox, but I don't know when it started.
