Hi

Ok so it use to be when I would select a file like say a PDF to download I would get a pop up (Still do and set that way to ask what I desire to do with the file) and there were 2 choices

Open with (Select program to open with) Save to

But I noticed this tonight now I have a 3rd option on top that is

Open in Firefox

No matter what I try it always reverts back now to OPEN IN FIREFOX for each file where as before it use to remember the last option I had selected which is what I prefer as usually I want to save the file rather then open it.

Is there any way to force firefox to remember the last choice I made rather then reverting all the time to open in firefox like it is doing right now?

At OS (Windows10) startup, Firefox launches several (3-5) blank, large windows then immediately close themselves. Then, when I launch Firefox intentionally, gives back an error screen saying it could not reproduce the previous session. I tried turning off (false) toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart and also is manually closing all tabs before shutting off. What else can I do?

When I open a new window (private or not) from taskbar right-click menu on firefox icon it opens but the window is inactive (when I try to write text or press a hotkey it just doesn't work until I click on the newly opened window and do it again). For me it looks like the active window is "taskbar" but I'm pretty sure it's a problem with firefox because I've never seen this happening to other apps. Maybe there is a hidden option or something that I have to enable?

I am using Outlook.com (aka Outlook webmail, Hotmail) and the spell-check option no longer works. I write in multiple languages and have always had the option to access the drop-down menu to choose the language from the dictionaries that I have downloaded and/or chose the correct spelling of the word. This drop-down menu no longer appears.

I have reset Firefox to default settings. I then reinstalled the dictionaries that I used. I have also used Fred McD's suggestion:

Type about:config<enter> in the address bar. If a warning screen comes up, press the I Accept the Risk button. At the top of the screen is a search bar.

Type: layout.spellcheckDefault Its values are; 0 Spell Checker Off 1 Check Only Multi-Line Input Boxes. 2 Check Multi And Single Line Input Boxes.

Nothing worked.

I went to send feedback from the Outlook.com feedback icon to the right of the e-mail page and spell-check was working there. It does not work, though, within the body of the e-mail. I spent two hours with Microsoft tech support by chat and they were not able to fix this problem.

The red squiggly line appears here now as I type (and most everywhere else except Outlook.com) and I am able to access the drop-down spelling menu.

It seems like there needs to be a technical resolution between Microsoft and Mozilla Firefox.

Thanks for any help.

I have Tweetdeck in a pinned tab. There are a lot of columns, which I navigate by swiping left/right on my Magic Mouse. When I swipe to the left, to return to the first column, it often swipes a little bit too far and Firefox interprets that as a request to "back arrow" to the previous page, which is my Firefox home screen.

Is there any way to disable this behavior, so that a long left swipe will move the screen all the way to the left edge and stop there, without going all the way back to the Firefox home screen?

Posted comments on a blog (specifically Mail Online Peter Hitchen' Blog) frequently, but not always, fail to appear. Moderation can be excluded on the evidence that repeating the same comment later will sometimes succeed. Other people are clearly affected since there are sometimes complaints. I have the impression that comments made during 'office hours' are more likely to get through, but this by no means guarantees success. The problem seems to have got worse lately, though it was occassionaly evident from the beginning (3 or 4 months ago when I started to contribute).

 This could of course be entirely the fault of the blog side of the intercourse, but is there anything I can do on the hither side, as a user of Firefox, to mitigate or solve this problem?

Hello, It's al in the subject. When I receive a link in a mail and click it, Firefox is lauched and the page opened (Firefox is my default browser). In this case, the page link is not recorded in history. The page links are only recorded in history if they are opened when navigating in Firefox.

This malfunction appeared about a week or two ago.

I've been using Firefox for years most recently on a Windows machine but I've just switched back to a Mac. I'm having issues with bookmarks and I'm doing what I've always done but now am having a couple issues so I don't know if it is due to switching systems or if I have an issue.

In any case... I like my bookmarks in the toolbar so that is where I aim to put them. I exported my bookmarks from my PC, imported the file and thought I was fine but now I see that not all of the bookmarks are there in the toolbar, most are but not all. Then when I check the recently bookmarked, the missing ones are listed among the others but do not appear where I can find them.

Then I exported from my work PC to a file as before, imported the file and can not find any of them anywhere, keep trying and can't find them.

And now while on a page I click the blue star as I always have, have it pointed to the toolbar folder, click done, check the toolbar and not there. Keep trying and during the process I see an option to remove 3 bookmarks next to option DONE, so I suspect it is something I'm not understanding but on my PC I've never had issues with this.

Hi,

I have come across this answer as to why youtube page gets randomly updated: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1246764#question-reply

After checking all my settings, I couldn't find any add on or extension containing "high-definition" words in it. My only extention in firefox is ublock origin.

Any idea why the updates continue to take place? Can ublock origin cause it? Or has there been a browser update that could cause it?

Many thanks in advance,

Hi,

so I love Firefox and the ability to use addons even on mobile, which Chrome couldn't (which also was the reason why I switched to Firefox in the first place), the only thing that really bothers me is Lockwise. It's really glitchy sometimes; either it doesn't show up at all, then I have to manually copy paste my login data, or it moves around on the page when I scroll down, open up the keyboard etc.

So I thought, why not use Google's autofill, the feature I've always loved, because it works just perfectly, on Firefox instead. Did that on my tablet and mobile phone, as luckily you can select your autofill provider on Android. Sadly there's no option on Firefox so far (or I missed it, I quickly went through about:config but couldn't find anything there as well)... Maybe there's some hidden option or a safe addon that lets me do that?

Any advice would be much appreciated! Thank you in advance, Maria
