Restore the "Open in Firefox" WITHOUT asking, and WITHOUT downloading

I have read hours of Q&A about this problem here in this forum before posting, and cannot find a solution.

Until very recently, whenever I would click a link in a page, it would "Open in Firefox" in a new tab. Then after reading it or printing it or whatever I wanted to do, I could click the download [Fx98PDFviewer-DownloadButton] button if I wanted to save it, and an Explorer would open up allowing me to select where I want to put it and what I want to call it (if I wanted to change the name it comes with) before downloading/saving.

Now, when I click a link it just downloads (even though most of the time I don't want that). Despite all I've read, I've tried a dozen settings, and I CANNOT get that behavior back.

If I set the browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to False, and select "Open with Firefox" when it prompts me, I can't get it to STOP prompting me. It prompts me EVERY TIME, even though I have checked the box repeatedly for "Do this automatically for files like this from now on"

And yet it is STILL downloading automatically when it opens for viewing in the new tab, and I am forever now cleaning and deleting crap out of my downloads.

I have my default PDF reader set to the reader I like, and when I'm NOT in Firefox, I do NOT want to have to right-click and select my preferred reader each time.

But when I AM IN FIREFOX, what I need it to do is

- Open in Firefox, in a new tab, 
- DON'T prompt me, just do it, and 
- DON'T download it, unless if I then want to keep it I click the download [Fx98PDFviewer-DownloadButton] button.

HOW CAN I GET IT THIS BEHAVIOR BACK PLEASE?

Firefox will not download anything from any website. Any time I try to access pdf, jpeg or what ever all I get is "download failed". I always need to resort to Edge to get it, ready to be done with Firefox. Any suggestions for someone who is only mildly technical? I have tried opening in Firefox and Adobe, tried saving instead, nothing works

Draftkings uses Geocomply to verify location in Oregon. A few days ago all attempted logins began to fail due to firefox not recognizing this app when Draftkings website initiated location verification. It has not worked since in Firefox. Just tried Edge browser and it works fine there. I have checked all settings, been thru multiple tutorials and still, Draftkings website asks me to download and install this app, which is obviously installed and working already since Edge used it. I can see the app in my list but its become obvious firefox can't. Help

Problem with a website using Windows 11

Hello. I have just installed Windows 11 and have a problem with the Firefox browser that I didn't have with Windows 10.

On the Talk Radio website: (https://talkradio.co.uk/), there is a "Listen Live" button which, when clicked creates a popup window for their Radio Player application. Under Windows 11, the window pops up, but is empty (this was fine under Windows 10). I tried this with Edge and it works fine.

Could someone look into this please? I don't want to have to use Edge.

Many thanks,

Kevin

Just booted up a new laptop with Win11 and installed Firefox - had been working normally, but now I can't get back into the browser menu or anything else on that menu/url bar. On opening a new window, I can click and view the menu, but within a few seconds it vanishes, but the button remains highlighted as though it's still open, so I can't re-open it.

I'm running v95.02 (64bit) on a Dell G5-5500 with 16GB RAM and an NVIDIA RTX 2070 with 6GB RAM with Windows 11 (v10.0.22000)

On many occasions (several times a day) Firefox simply goes away without warning... sometimes after several minutes on a page. Sometimes in GMail, sometimes Facebook, sometimes other sites... there does not seem to be a particular pattern.

Is there a hidden log somewhere that I can send to you to help resolve this issue?

Thx!

This is kind of a weird problem...I recently upgraded to Windows 11, and I started using multiple desktops. I then opened up Firefox on each desktop, and I think that's where the problem began.

I have different tabs opened on each iteration of Firefox, but when I closed down Firefox on Desktop 1, it didn't save any of my tabs when I opened it up again. I tried to repeat the problem on Desktop 2, but instead Firefox behaved normally and saved the session. I've tried looking online for an answer to this, and i have no idea what's going on.

Has anyone encountered a similar issue? If so, how do you fix this?

Thanks!
