I recently upgraded to Firefox 24.0. I use Windows 7

It used to be that any time I clicked on a link to download anything, I would be given the chance to choose where I wanted to save whatever I was downloading. The item would also be saved in the download file or directory.

But now, when I click a link to download anything, it just automatically saves to the download directory without giving me the chance to save it somewhere else. So if I want the file somewhere else, I have to open the download directory and move it where to where I want it.

How do I set Firefox so it is like it was before, so that it gives me a choice of where I want to save a download before it starts downloading it? Thanks.

The support topic on this question says to look for a "pin" icon in the upper left corner of the browser. I do not show one. Firefox used to just automatically populate my new tabs page with the thumbnails, but it is no longer doing that, and I don't know how to fix it. I downloaded some freeware that changed a number of browsing options (default browser, added Bing bar without my full knowledge, etc.). Got that all removed but then Firefox wasn't working well, so I had to uninstall/reinstall the program. Now my thumbnails are gone and I can neither get them back nor create new ones. Help! Cheers, Dolly

Recently, the "save as" dialog box quit appearing when I attempt to download email attachments. I have the "always ask me where to save files" box checked in the tools/options/general/downloads area. The box still appears when I use Chrome, but not when I use Firefox.

Ok, so I have lost out on some downloads, that were rather large, because I closed firefox.

When I used to close firefox, my download would still keep going. The firefox icon at the bottom of the screen on the taskbar, would show a translucent green download indicator. I could even click on it to check the progress with more detail.

Why on earth would this be changed, to totally cancel downloads when shutting firefox? Is there a way to stop this? I want the behavior of.. Close firefox, download is still going.

Okay - for YEARS now I've used ONLY Firefox - it had the best extensions and add-ons of any other browser out there. Add to it, it was safe and very quick. So it was my default browser.

This week I logged into my DeviantArt site and odd advertisements started showing up in the lower left and right corners of the browser, unlike anything I'd ever seen before. Add to it, they were very inappropriate! So I assumed that something was wrong, and went through three, as in 3, programs to find out if I had any 'bugs' causing the problems. And of course, there was some kind of nasty bug in Firefox causing all kinds of issues.

So, following the suggestions of the fixer, plus the suggestions here, I deinstalled Firefox (21) then reinstalled the newer version, 23. At first, I thought, "Wow, that is really fast!". When I opened Firefox it didn't go to my home page, it went to the Firefox startup page, along with opening tabs for EVERY add-on and extension!

So, opened Tools, Options and reset the home page to my home page, https://www.google.com

Simple, and something I've done before. I'm a computer geek and have worked on my own additions. So, set up my home page, was working in Firefox, went to youtube to download a video and it wouldn't! So went to DLhelper, read their comments, changed one of the strings, and voila! No problems!

So I thought it was fixed and I was happy. That was last night. This morning I boot the puter and the first thing I do is open Firefox . And what happens? Oh, yes, that's right, NOTHING THAT I WOULD HAVE WANTED! It's back to the Firefox startup page, and it opens tabs for EVERY SINGLE ADD-ON!

Holy carp, getting tired now. So I research from 8 this morning until about an hour ago, so just over 5 hours I keep trying to fix it based on Firefox instructions. Go into about:config, work on the strings, change the home page info, etc. Save it. Go back to Tools, Options and there's my home page. Close Firefox and open it, and what the heck? Again, back to where it was, opening as if I just uploaded this browser. Now I've spent literally HOURS trying to fix this and I'm so frustrated that I'm just about ready to de-install it! My one complaint is that I searched all over to try and find this same problem and cannot find it. Is that true, I'm the only one with this bizarre problem???
