Before the new update whenever I downloaded a file it would ask where to save the file to every time, now it just asks once then automatically saves any new files I download to the same folder as the previous ones, forcing me to then go to that folder and manually move it to the correct folders. Is there any way to change it back to the right way it was done before they decided to remove our choice? My setting is set to "Always ask you where to save files", with the emphasis on "Always".

Hi

Running Firefox 71.0 (64 bit)

Well seems Firefox has been messing this up again.

Anyone have the new work around solution to get my tabs back on the bottom again. They were fine this morning then shut down and went out to lunch and when I came back they were back on the top again after months of being where I wanted them below my bookmark bar.

Thoughts on this?

Thanks Dave

I have noticed recently that every week or so my Firefox browser will randomly change my homepage directory to the landing page / search for MSN, which is baffling, since it is obtrusive and anti-Mozilla to me.

If y'all are sneaking it in for that sweet ad revenue, I understand, but I would donate to avoid this issue.

Otherwise Firefox / Thunderbird are awesome, and I appreciate all that you do!

Cheers, Elliot

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 98.0.1. And there doesn't seem to be an option to add Pocket suggestions to the homepage, as there used to be.

You can add Pocket articles that you've saved, but not suggestions from Pocket.

It used to be under settings - home - recommended by Pocket.

Has this been removed from the options?

Thanks, Taylor

I don't know if it is a wrong manipulation or an update feature, but since today when i select a link in the history library, it is now highlighted with big yellow dotted borders instead of the usual subtle black/white single pixel sized dots. How to revert back to the small borders?

With the new v85 of Firefox... for Microsoft Print to PDF...

the defaults for print headers & footers has changed and is no longer available to edit or even view. It seems as though my settings remain in place for other printing options like my physical printer but even there the options are not editable or viewable.

There used to be a "page setup" option but I have not be able to find this anywhere anymore.

I'm assuming that it has to do with the bug fix for pdf printing but doesn't seem that it should be an intended outcome of the fix.

Any work arounds anyone knows about or has found?

I live with Firefix always in full screen. I Don't like seeing any bars or buttons of any kind.

Befor the latest update, when I moved my mouse to the top of the screen my tabs popped down and in the top right corner was the standard icons for "minimize" "maximize" and "exit".

With the latest update the tabs are there but the 3 buttons have gone.

If I exit full screen (F11) then they are there again, but I dont want to have to exit full screen every time I change between programes which I do every few mins. I'd be popping pages in and out of full screen every few mins!

How do I get the buttons back all the time?

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 . . . I was doing this (below), to customize my header and footer, but in this version of FF, I no longer see this in Options - only in: about:config . . . keyword "footer" . . . there, I would have to change it for 5 different ways of printing (to printers or to PDF)

I need to get rid of printing the URL in the footer - many times, it's too long, and I don't need it.

Where did the Page Setup option go?

I see in the current Print Options, you have to go to - More Settings / Margin / Custom - to see those. Why would they put this so many levels down?

It used to be: File / Page Setup / Margins & Header/Footer . . . "Customize" Headers & Footers:

Option 1 (left) . . . there are two leading spaces:

 > > &T
 > > &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Option 2 (left) . . . get rid of the ">"s, and just have the two leading spaces:

 &T
 &U . . . &D . . . &PT

Updating to version 98.0 onwards Firefox has started saving a copy of every pdf file I view (open) in my downloads folder.

My settings have not changed:

Tools->Settings->General->Applications: - pdf (application/download): Always ask - pdf (application/force-download): Always ask - pdf (application/pdf): Use Adobe Acrobat DC - pdf (application/x-download): Always ask

And when the "ask" dialog pops up, I choose "open".

I have tried all standard methods/troubleshooting, including resetting the handlers.json file.

The only way to avoid getting a copy in the downloads folder is if I choose "Open in Firefox" (application/pdf) instead of "Use Adobe Acrobat DC".

Any solution to this?

Thanks Michael

You have very practical option for the address bar to separate it for the search bar. See the attached screen shot.

We have many local url addresses to the local web server, which the Firefox does not recognize as URL addresses and redirects to the search engine.

So I said in the option, that for the search purposes a separate bar should be used. But the address bar still redirects to the search engine although I said that that the address bar should be used only for the navigation.

Please make the address bar working for the navigation only if the option "Add search bar in toolbar" is selected. Otherwise there is no sense in the separate search bar.

Every solution which I have found for Firefox 89 "Proton" so far which moves the Tabs Bar below the Navigation Bar (AKA "address bar"), with the Menu Bar above it, does NOT move the Tabs Bar below the Bookmarks Bar. The Bookmarks Bar appears to be overwritten and blank, and occupies space below the Menu Bar, Navigation Bar, and Tabs Bar. This empty space separates the three bars which are implemented and the content of the currently-selected tab below it.

Currently, my userChrome.css file is a copy posted by Cor-el (?):


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

/* TABS: below nav-bar - fixed for 108+,113+ */

Evidently, the text editor for this website does several things to the above original text that, frankly, seem unnecessary and undesirable. The .CSS file is just an unformatted text file, so what is the problem with simply copying its contents and pasting it in to the body of this post?

Which is also to say that I do NOT have a clue as to what any line in the file is meant to do, what effect it has, why it is even in the file at all, or why it is written in the way that it is. So DO NOT tell me that I "CAN" create a Cascading Style Sheet on my own when I cannot even modify one that has been provided.

On the face of it, something is missing from the above CSS text. What change needs to be made to the above content so that the Bookmark Bar will appear between the Navigation Bar and the Tabs Bar??

Thank-you very much for your time and attention to this request for assistance.

Mozila VPN on Android sometimes appear to automatically turn itself off.

The explanation could be in your settings on Android: Go to settings, - select Apps, - - choose Mozilla VPN in the list, - - - go to Battery and select background Use,

go back to Mozilla VPN in the list, - - - go to Mobile Data, - - - - turn On "Allow Background Data Usage" - - - - turn On "Allow App while Data saver is On"

now your VPN shouldn't turn off any longer.

When restarting your phone the explanation why the Mozilla VPN is OFF is that to keep your security, the app requires re-authenticating with their servers (new encryption key).

Not exactly sure when this started, but I recently updated to FF 97.0.1.

I previously made the about:config changes about a year ago when this happened. "Double-click the print.tab_modal.enabled preference to switch between the new experience (true) and the classic experience (false)".

But it's not working now. I even toggled back & forth (false - true - false) but to no avail.

How do I get the Print Preview option showing up in the drop down File menu like it used to be?
