How to save images to the downloads directory (that I chose in settings) without using right click -> save image as .. -> popup window .. then choose the location where I want to save it.

I tried alt+click, it didn't work, it saves the webpage url instead of the image. I prefer a solution that does not involve any add-ons.

OS: Pop!_OS 22.04 LTS Firefox version: 121.0.1 (64-bit)


Thank you.

Hi, Is there a possibility to delete the sync data without completely deleting the account? I used Firefox Sync to transfer some passwords and I understood that they are encrypted on the sync server. However, it might be that even the encryption might be broken and attackers could steal my passwords. That´s why I would like to delete the password data on the server (but keep the account).

Is this somehow possible? I didn´t find any article about exactly this topic.

Best regards, Sebastian

Hello all, first time poster here but long time FF user!

Lately, some of IMDB's functionality is broken for me. I can give many examples of odd behaviors but to keep this short, have pasted 2 screenshots of the same section of the homepage (www.imdb.com) to demonstrate the difference. Something is preventing the proper loading of all the elements.

Another odd thing is that i'm unable to click on elements that have properly loaded and are visible. Lastly, i'm unable to play videos!!

None of the above are reproducable when in private browsing mode. I have disabled all my extension in the hopes that one of them could be the culprit to no avail!

Any thoughts on how to approach this issue?

Since about 13:00 GMT yesterday, Firefox could not load or display the Hostinger h-panel. It sometimes partially and sometimes completely displays all the page content. But all the controls are dead. Firefox seems to be very busy doing something. I told Hostinger and they spent some time looking into the problem. They got Firefox to load the h-panel but said that it was vastly slower than other browsers in doing so. With me, Firefox still stops doing anything once the content is loaded and ALL controls on the page are still dead. When closing Firefox in this state, there is considerable delay before the window actually closes.

I thought that perhaps Hostinger had done an update that called in some proprietary JavaScript extensions that Firefox couldn't handle. I get the impression that in trying to display the h-panel pages, Firefox is trying to acquire some content from an external site, as requested somewhere within the HTML/JavaScript source code.

Any ideas? robert_john.morton@yahoo.com

Firefox doesn't seem to have a built-in feature for listing the contents of each container tab in Firefox one at a time. That is, I would like to have only the contents of one tab container shown on my browser at a time, and be able to switch from one container to another freely. What is the use of containers if all their contents are displayed at once on the tabs of my browser?

Firefox stopped working with my VPN on when I updated my OS to Sonoma, yesterday. I use PIA for my VPN.

I have done the following, so far, restarting my system several times between trying these things:

Checked that internet connection and modem are fine. All pages load in Safari, with VPN running, but I prefer Firefox.

Checked the Network settings for my Mac. Ensured that No Proxy was selected.

Cleared my Firefox cookies, cache and history.

Tried running in troubleshooting mode, turning off all extensions.

Tried turning off Advanced Tracking Protection, which I usually run on Custom.

Refreshed Firefox.

Finally, I turned off my VPN and, viola, all sites work. Turned it back on, and can’t navigate, again. For instance, I tried to open YouTube, and got a blank screen. Turned off VPN, and got to main YouTube page. Turned the VPN on and tried to log in…nope. Turned it off and logged in. Turned it back on and tried to open a video….nope. Turned it off and opened the video…etc., etc..

I very much wish to continue using both Firefox and my VPN. Can you suggest a course of action? Thank you for any advice you can give!!

I set up a website for my wife a while ago. Most recently we noticed that some (not all) of our pages are not shown correctly when we use Firefox as browser. Specifically, when you open a webpage and scroll down as far as you can, there is a certain white area at the very bottom visible, below the footer. Now, if you wait a small amount of time, then scroll a little up and down again, the white border is not longer there and the page appears as it should.

Example pages for this behavior are: https://praxis-weinhold-schattentherapie.eu/entspannung/ https://praxis-weinhold-schattentherapie.eu/praxis/ https://praxis-weinhold-schattentherapie.eu/ueber-mich/

It is not happening e.g. with: https://praxis-weinhold-schattentherapie.eu/unterkuenfte-und-impressionen/ https://praxis-weinhold-schattentherapie.eu/angebote-und-kontakt/ Example screenshots are attached.

This strange behavior cannot be recognized with other browsers, we tried Chrome as well as Edge. Many thanks in advance for any ideas on how to adress this! Best regards Carsten

A strange new requester appeared in Firefox today. I do not think that I clicked on anything without noticing. I was just watching a Youtube video and the requester appeared when I was moving the cursor down across the screen. The requester items would not respond, and the requester could not be closed. I had to quit Firefox and restart to get rid of it. See attached screen capture.

  1. 1 I set the Manage Data tab to 'Allow' for sites I want cookies saved for. This sets the http and https addresses for the sites I enter.
  2. 2 I set the same sites in the 'Manage Exceptions' tab so that these sites do not have their cookies deleted.
  3. 3 Save Settings
  4. 4 Close and re-open Firefox. All cookies are deleted.

I suspect this is a bug?

Hi, Folks. When I open "manage bookmarks" (Library), why does it always open at "other bookmarks"? This is at the very bottom of the alphabetical list (and empty) so I always have to scroll back up to the top. I've got a lot of bookmarks, so this is extremely irritating. How do I change this? I've searched for an answer. The only likely solutions suggest removing the "other bookmarks" folder, but the description of how to do that doesn't work. Nowhere can I find a "remove other bookmarks" option. And the delete option is greyed out.

I don't necessarily need to hide or remove it, as long as I can get the bookmarks manager/Library to open at the top, ie. "Bookmarks Menu".

Cheers, Ian

I am using Firefox on a new PC. Whenever I type something into the address bar, all results appear under a small Firefox Suggest header, even though Firefox Suggest is not available to me in the United Kingdom. I believe it is possible to remove this header through about:config, and I did so on my old PC shortly after FIrefox Suggest was released in 2021, although I have long forgotten how to do this for obvious reasons. Could somebody please explain how this header can once again be removed, or is it a permanent feature? Thank you in advance.

Is it possible to combine history/bookmark files? Firefox has truncated my "History" to 15 days and the only option I see to get elder entries is to combine a backupped history file with the current one. An easy-to-use tool for this task would be welcome. I did not change my config options after the update to 121.0.1 (64-Bit) (Windows 10pro) but I think I had the total history (from years) before the update. My current Options related to this topic are: browser.history_expire_days false places.history.expiration.max_pages false places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages 501234 privacy.clearOnShutdown.history false privacy.history.custom true history (*) Boolean Number String

I already sreened Help files of this Forum concerning lost history data but they all do not give sufficient answers or I do not understand them (as a German user). Thanks. Martin
