I hope migration is what I am seeking. I've not used my Desktop for a couple of years. I used my iPhone during that time. I installed my desktop today. I sent myself, on my phone, a number of messages during the past two days and want to view/manipulate/edit them on my desktop.

I have tried everything I can think of, but cannot see those messages. All the messages I see beging with one week ago. Any ideas? I hope I hope. Many thanks.

I have been using Firefox for a long time. I can't even think of using another of those of the other browsers tht are so intrusive. I just noticed, and I think it is new,, that my history button shows my personal emails I have visited. Of course no one can go there and see the entire email massage without my login and pwd. But it is still awful - for example I just looked again and there is the security verification code - 3****2 - I just used to sign up for Firefox Accounts. So all my subjects of personal concern are right there for all the world to see what I am talking about with other people. I don't have anything to hide (right now) but I can imagine many ideas that I would rather not have snooping eyes able to see. I'm sure that many people with different lifestyles that me would be LIVID if they knew that their subjects of emails were available to be visible on an open page. - Here are some others in my history list: "Adrian-Your credit limit has increased--Chase..." "John L***** has joined your personal meeting room" "Lucky Brand Jeans + casual pants now buy one get 1 . . ." "Your Online Bill is available - Verizon Wireles . . ." - - - Like I said, I don't remember ever seeing history references to my personal emails before. I enjoy using the history button - it's much faster than going to bookmarks or typing in. I have looked at the subjects of help but it doesn't seem to cover this. I hope I don't have to go to the trouble of VPN or "Always delete history" - - hope you can help with a bug fix or simple setting. - - Jerme

Emails with .PDF attachments have the Firefox logo on them and are opened by the Firefox.PDF "app". I want it totally disabled. I don't want to ever see it again. I have wasted two hours trying to figure out how to just use Adobe .PDF.

For downloads I have made the selection to use Adobe.PDF. That works.

Any help would be appreciated.

I regularly use the PrintFriendly website to create and download PDFs. In the past, I have always been able to choose where I download the files to on my Windows 10 PC. Recently, I have been unable to do so -- the files are always downloaded to the Downloads folder. I have set my browser to "Always ask" (see picture), but that doesn't make any difference. Is there something else that I need to do? Thank you!

I have asked this before but got no reply. Running FireFox 98.0.2 andthe problemis logging into many websites (like my bank) on Windows 10. Generally the login info drop downs do not accept the data or don't even appear. I am ready to quit Firefox on windows. Oddly, Firefox on MacOS is ok. But it is really frustrating to have to use MS Edge to log into my bank or read the local paper and more. Really, if my main option to switch were something other than GOOGLE I would switch - have use Firefox for years - I am a data scientist with an MS in CS and have high expectations for interface design. This one is not working.
