duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/983862 - locking

I download this addon "Magic Player" but did not install it:

http://magicplayer.torrentstream.org/index.php?lang=en#

How can I find the folder where the install package was down loaded so I can delete it.

I have looked every where "history" "library" "cache" and "download" folders but do not find it.

Where does the addon file download if I did not click install after it downloaded

Yours sincerely, Christophe Smith

Edited for language etc. Sorry you are unhappy with recent changes. If you change your mind and need help with using Firefox please post again. I will close this thread as it is not a request for support.

Most of the time, when I hit a link, it opens but tabs with ads or pages that I didn't ask for are opening also and they come up on top. I have to dump them to get to the link I originally hit. How can I stop this from happening? It's so irritating and they take a while to come up before I can close them. Note: I use Firefox for Mac OS

I'm making myself a site, when i click to to open what will be the navigation area there is another scrolling area. when i scroll down a greyed out reflection of the top of the website appears.

at one point i even managed to get the toolbar to appear down there.

Have tested in Safari, Android and iPhone and it works perfectly. i recognize it's probably somethign in the code or js plugins im using.. but it only appears in firefox.

The add-on titled "Mozilla Archive Format" will CREATE .maff archives, but will not OPEN them. In this thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1059827 I was advised to find a separate Plug In to read them. I searched the Addons for "maf" and ".maf" and ".maff" and "maff" and THERE ARE NO PLUG INS TO READ THE DAMN FILES !!! Searching the net in general yields spam - articles about what the format is, and references mostly to items that run on a PC.

Why after being signed in, am I asked to sign in, and then told I'm using an incorrect password, when I just used it to sign in the first time??? I'm just trying to respond to, or ask a question in the forum, and now I can't sign in .... again. What's up with that?

I see on the Add-ons Manager page, this:

"Add-ons is switching to Firefox Accounts for login. Sign in now to transfer your account."

Yet when I go to sign in (again), I'm told it's incorrect. Then if I'm about to hit the "reset my password" button, it warns me that: "When you reset your password, you will lose any Sync data that is not on one of your devices. Learn how Sync works."

Why is this such a confusing mess? Why must I sign in, when I'm already signed in, etc.???

I had asked a question of the forum about the calendar in the "new and improved" AT&T/Yahoo browser/Email system. I received two replies with suggestions for a possible fix. I notified the sender that the first one did not work and do not remember if I told the sender that the second one, also, did not work and that I was going to forgo any further discussion or attempts at remediation. I cannot find the information within the forum that I sent and what was replied.

One would hope that the CEO of a major technology organization could properly implement security. Brendan has proven yet again that he is not the right CEO to lead Mozilla.
