On the desktop version of Firefox, when I open "Show All Downloads" and there "Clear Downloads", the history of downloads is cleared, but the downloaded files are present in the folder still. This is the desired behavior.

However, on Android Firefox, if I open Tools->Downloads, I only get the option "Delete All Downloads" and when I press it, the list gets cleared, along with the files from the folder. How do I avoid this and get the behavior similar to that in the desktop? Basically, I wish to clear Firefox download history in Android without deleting/renaming the downloaded files.

An error popup has started in Thunderbird. I have my Google calendar synced to Thunderbird on my Win10 computer. Says "this item has recently been changed on the server"-----see attached image. If I click "Discard my changes and reload" it does nothing. If I click "Delete anyway" the error popup remains. I have to go to Task Manager to close Thunderbird and restart where the error pops up again. The calendar item it describes is no longer on my calendar. Ideas on making the popup stop?

I apologize if this has already been brought up.

It seems that the browser has access to a list of my media devices, without needing any special permissions. On Am I Unique, they can grab the unique ID of my builtin macbook camera & microphone. I believe the culprit is MediaDevices.enumerateDevices(). I do have privacy.resistFingerprinting set to True.

Perhaps you could put it behind a permission request, like MediaDevices.getUserMedia()?

Thank you for your time.

I have 2 windows 10 systems which I thought I might try sync to manage logins and bookmarks.

Initially it all worked smoothly then duplicate bookmarks started appearing, folders also duplicated and the only way to restore things was to revert to a saved version. I turned off sync for bookmarks but still changes appear almost every time I log into either device.

I am tempted to remove sync unless someone can suggest a solution.

While using multiple (desktop) workspaces on Ubuntu, Firefox used to open right on the current workspace. However, since some update during the course of this year, it unfortunately started opening on the workspace it was last opened on. More than a nuisance, this is a productivity issue: you expect Firefox to open right where you start it only to find it somewhere else.

Unchecking the "Restore previous session" option makes this work i.e. Firefox opens right on the current workspace, but that comes at the price of losing (at least) the opened tabs next time Firefox is started.

Is there a way not to store the workspace in Firefox's session?

Links from Gmail open a tab in Gmail (https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/.), rather than the relevant website page. If I click this tab, then my Gmail account opens (duplicates) in the tab. On repeating the click (and doing so deliberately) on the hyperlink in the Gmail body, a tab does open with the relevant website page. This occurs haphazardly.

I had to delete this browser due to a problem with a crash. When I tried to relaunch FireFox stated that it was already open even though it had crashed. I had to go into the system and find the user info and delete it and then I uninstalled and deleted Firefox.

Is there an EASIER way to fix this problem? I like the browser but the crash took a lot of time from my work day trying to figure it out.

thank you! I appreciate the work you all do.

I am using Firefox 76.0 on a Linux Mint 19.3 cinnamon desktop. For some reason I can no longer send a newspaper item by email. Until recently I simply ticked the email symbol in the sidebar, and up popped an email form to which I needed only to put in an address. Now when I tick on the box, there is no result, although there is a line at the bottom of the page, saying 'mail to, and name of article'. I have disabled all add-ons, and the result is the same. It is the same when I have tried on other browsers. However, on another computer in a different room with the same setup, there is no problem. I have torn out my hair for three days and would be very grateful for help.

Hi, I don't want videos and sounds to start playing automatically on my Android phone when I open any webpages. I enabled the Firefox parameter to block videos from playing, but it doesn't work.

More, using our phones anywhere can cause medias playback to be annoying for users and/or people around. Thanks
