Hello, in last few days I notice that when you try to save web page that has title ending with .com or anything like that saved file has .com extension instead of htm. I often use this option and I'm sure it must be one of the latest updates that started to cause that. Any chance it gonna get fixed and Firefox start adding .htm after .com?

For example try saving page https://www.naturalnews.com/ its title is "Natural Health News and Scientific Discoveries - NaturalNews.com" and saved file has .com extension. I need to fix it everytime and add .htm manually.

This morning, I needed to join a Teams meeting. After I'd clicked the link, I was asked if I would allow Microsoft to use my audio and video; I ticked "Allow". But, when I joined the meeting, I found that I could hear and be heard but I couldn't be seen; my video icon refused to react when I tried to get it open. It was only when I came in through Edge that I could be both heard and seen. Is there any way I can get into a Teams meeting through Firefox? (I have downloaded Teams on to my desk top.) Steve

Hello, there is the note for FF 102 Release:While Bug 1771084 does not represent a specific vulnerability that was fixed, we recommend anyone rebasing patches to include it. 102 branch

Patch 1 and 2. 91 Branch: Patch 1 and 2 (Despite saying Parts 2 and 3, there is no Part 1). To clarify, so the current 102 release of FF does not 'contain any patch for that bug 1771084, and it's recommended manually to install these patches? Or they are already incorporated in the release?

Hi, I use Verizon Fios and a Windows 10 PC. Firefox is my default browser. I don't experience any of the problems described below when using Chrome, which I only do now that Firefox is not working optimally.

In many, many years I've never had trouble with Firefox until about a month ago. When I opened the browser, I received messages -- about five times -- that it had crashed. After that, many websites now load very slowly, or not at all. And now, I'm unable to see product images on Amazon.

Would you please help me? I'm 84 and not all that computer savvy and I don't want to delete my browsing history, etc. Many thanks, Valerie

Hi all, I'm having a lot of problems with Firefox crashing pretty often. Sometimes once or twice a day.

I most often see crashes in the middle of a Webex video conference for work. But Firefox sometimes goes down in other situations that I see no pattern in.

This is Ubuntu 20.04, Firefox 102.0. Unfortunately, it's a complex environment to debug.

First, when firefox goes down, it rarely leaves a crash report behind. So I'm not getting any direct evidence as to what is happening. Second, I run with uBlock active and it is very difficult to function in the browser without long enough for the crash to happen. Third, I typically have several hundred tabs open. I have a lot of memory (64G) in my machine, and the machine doesn't act like it's swapping, so I don't think I'm running out of memory.

Any help getting to the bottom of what's going on is welcome.

On my linux laptop I have a lot of saved userids in Firefox that do not have the password saved - which is exactly what I want for some sites (like bank sites and credit card sites) that I want it easy for me to log into but impossible for anybody else. On my Windows desktop now, however (apparently I inadvertently deleted my saved logins), I can't seem to figure out how to duplicate this functionality again, i.e., save the userids but not the passwords. Firefox seems to want to save both, or neither. How do I get my desktop to do exactly what my laptop is doing, save the userid but not the password? Thanks.

The issue seems restricted to Firefox and PDFs.

I'm animating a SVG by dragging the mouse that changes the <path d=""> attribute. When mouseUp I'm setting the <animate values="" > to animate from that dragging point and start the animation. This works fine. But if I want to drag it for a second time it looks like the animation has been set to <animate fill="freeze"> although it has been set to "remove". In other words, it looks like the attribute fill="remove" doenst work. I can drag the object (and alter the <path d=""> ) but it doenst show after the animation has been completed for the first time. It only plays the animation.

Starting today, with firefox 102 (on Ubuntu 20.04), I cannot open a url using the address bar. If I enter a url and then hit Enter, it brings up my selected search engine looking for that url, not opening the url itself. This has not happened before today. Is there a way to use the address bar only for opening addresses, and use the search bar for searching?
