I just did a reinstall of Windows and Linux and installed Firefox 67.0.1 fresh. I've noticed that the default behavior of the download dialog is to have the "Open with..." radio button always selected by default. Previously, I know I had this defaulted to the "Save File" option (which honestly seems the safer default action). Also, the checkbox for "Do this automatically..." is always greyed out no matter which selection is active.

Seeing this behavior on both Windows 10 and Arch Linux. The only difference from previously installed environments is that the OSes are now on an NVMe solid state drive vs the SATA solid state drive before.

I've made sure that Google search is selected as default; AND Bing is not even listed anywhere (I've removed it from the list of search engines).

YET, typing a search term displays ".... search in Google", then displays Google's results, then just redirects to Bing for that search.

How do I stop Firefox from doing this?

Hi folks,

Just had the last update. Like last time, starting Firefox after installing I get a new tab instead of the login page of gmail. The setting in Options is still correct for gmail. With the previous update it took 2 days before it remembered suddenly... It's not the end of the world, of course... but kind of irritating :-)

Anybody an idea what is going wrong there?

Hi,

1# Firefox often loads a blank "New Tab" in staid of my set homepage, about 50/50 chance. homepage = https://google.com/ncr

Things i tried: - fresh install (including appdata removal) - with and without addons - waited asking till an update to see if it would help

2# Sometimes when scrolling via mousewheelclick/middlemouse at about reading speed, the page turns blank till i scroll back up a bit and continue.

thanks in advance, Aapjuh
