>> "Opening xvideos"."com ###.mp4". >> which is: MP4 Video (16.4MB) >> from https://cdn77-vid.xvideos-cdn"."com >> >> What should Firefox do with this file?

My only choice is: Open with Windows Media Player x86 (default)

After today's update to version 98 Firefox keeps saving files to the Downloads folder when I don't want it to, I just want to open them, but not keep them, with this new behaviour the Downloads folder keeps filing up with useless clutter.

For example, before the update, when I downloaded a .zip file, a pop-up would show up asking if I wanted to save the file or open it with an application. If I chose to save it it would be saved to the Downloads folder, and if I chose to open it nothing would be saved to the Downloads folder.

After the update, when I download a .zip file, Firefox always saves the file to the Downloads folder, even if I choose to open it.

Can you please tell me if there is a way to make Firefox behave like in the previous version?

I have open half a dozen or so tabs related to one subject. I would like to put them all into one "super tab", such that only the super tab shows as an open tab. Then, by clicking on that tab, it would show the tabs within it, any one or more of which could be selected. Is this possible, and if so how is it done? Perhaps there's an add-on or extension that would do this.

I have already created a multi-tab bookmark that sorta, maybe accomplishes the same thing. But it's not as convenient as what I envision as described above.

Thanks for any advice or words of wisdom.

I was cleaning out my hard drive and deleting old installs of Microsoft Visual Studio Redistributable packages, and I almost certainly deleted the one that Firefox relies on.

I then attempted to start Firefox, getting the error, "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem."

I uninstalled, following the clean install directions, and deleting the "Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/" directory.

Then, I ran the Firefox Installer, newly downloaded, and when running it, it gives the same error, "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem." Selecting "Restore Defaults" has no effect either way. The installer then appears to complete in the background, and the Firefox directory is created, along with the executable.

When I run Firefox.exe, it seems to load the program, but any address I type in fails to begin loading. This includes websites (www.google.com) and help/utility pages (about:config). I'm therefore unable to change any settings within Firefox.

I then tried re-installing the "Visual C++ 2008" and "Visual C++ 2015-2019" packages in an attempt to restore that DLL, but that had no effect after repeating the same steps above (clean uninstall, re-install). Which VC++ Redist Package should I be re-installing? Ideally, I should be able to just get a copy of VCRUNTIME140_1.dll and place it where Firefox is looking for it.

For unfortunate reasons too tedious and mundane to discuss here, I am stuck with Mac/OS 10.11.6. I am looking for a version of Firefox that will run under that version of Mac/OS. I did the basic research and was directed Firefox version 78. After that, I was directed to the Extended Support Release. When I downloaded and ran that, I was directed to the Apple App Store where no version of Firefox could be found. Where to next?

Can someone offer me a link to a version of Firefox that I can download and run on Mac/OS 10.11.6? Please.

Reviewed "Sheribee" earlier issue which apparently involved a VPN. I do not have a VPN but have tried several times in the past week to access IRS refund status site without success. I can get into irs.gov, but am unsuccessful in accessing the refund status site after entering required input data. The issue has occurred only this past week.

I'm unaware of IRS issues causing this problem.

Have not had this issue on any other sites; and I have successful retrieved data in prior years.

I am not saving any sign on protocols with the irs or any other sites.

Running Windows 10. Thanks for any help. BTW I did get refund information using the telephone, but I want to ensure there's not a hidden conflict of some sort with FireFox. Thanks for any help.

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

Normal Password

All the settings are retried by Thunderbird once I enter the IMAP and SMTP details.

However upon clicking done, there will be a message saying "Unable to log in at server. Probably wrong configuration, username or password"

I have verified the username and password is correct, and also IMAP enabled for this account, but keep getting password wrong message.

I am facing the problem to open the sites. When I used the network, it show the following error:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.google.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Please let me know your suggestion and comments.

I am running "Firefox Browser 93.0", and I have Windows 10 Pro Version 21H1, OS Build 19043.1288. I am unable to watch certain video's, as an example, the video in this link: [https://www.wandtv.com/news/illinois-.../article_24b92a86-32c4-11ec-a487-3bb3f17fa133.html] won't play. It use to work, but something has changed, not by me. It will play that same video using the "Edge Browser" so there is nothing wrong with the website. However, I can play this "YouTube Video": [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAJSYk5wMiA] I also tried another link in their website, this is the weather link: [https://www.wandtv.com/weather] it starts to play, but then stops and nothing ever plays.

But they all play in the "Edge Browser!" Any ideas on what changed and how do I change it back, so they will play? I prefer Firefox Browser to any other browser! Do you know what the issue could be?

So I was having some trouble a few days ago with a website that automatically re-directed as soon as I landed on it to another page. So I happily went off in the settings and disable the automatic redirect. Now a week or two later I'm sitting here going I can't find the setting anymore? I can't even search for it and have absolutely no results you would think searching for "redirect" in the settings pain would bring it up. it's probably something that got buried in developer tools that I would never be able to turn off/toggle again unless I get lucky with the right extremely memorable and easily accessible incantation in the about : config because that's just all so well documented. Is it a "1" is it a "0" is it a "5" which one disabled / enabled what is the other options do?
