Download buttons (on any sites, or inside email attachments) DO NOT open download dialog or download file

Hello,

I have used EVERY proposed step in this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems#w_the-problem-does-not-occur-in-troubleshoot-mode

Problem GOES AWAY when FF is used in Troubleshoot mode BUT, when I open FF on normal mode and make sure I UNinstall all addons, extensions, dictionaries, language packs, use default theme and DONT allow hardware acceleration, then the problem STILL persists!!!

It seems that ONLY when in Troubleshoot mode the problem is resolved: NOT by removing all obvious addons or cotrols.

The problem is : ANY download button, does not work! (it is clickable, and yes, the browser seems to respond to it -rapid flickering of browser window- but a download dialogue is never opened -nor a download file is found in any corresponding folder) -then, once in Troubleshoot mode, the same button is normally functional again!

What is a proposed solution to that?

What could control could be behind the problem, that IS NOT USER switchable, but IS INDEED controlled (disabled) when Troubleshoot mode is selected???

Could there be a .json file (corrupted, etc.), that associates with buttons/elements (like the download buttons) and prevents the download to be triggered?, SO THAT maybe if I remove the .json corrupted file the new one will work fine, (maybe such a .json file is NOT loaded during Troubleshoot mode, but IS THERE whatever settings i choose through the settings of the FF)


Thank you.

PS: I have 14 installed plugins, about all same as on my FF93.0 on Win10 laptop, that the packet works just fine!

Hi, I need your help. After cleaning all cookies and caches in my Firefox, I can't access with login and password to a current website. I can navegate through general web site information; however, when I enter my login and password the web site says: "Please try another Internet Browser". I used to enter with Firefox until I cleaned up all the cookies and caches.

I've tried changing/ shutting off the "shield" thing in the address bar to no avail. Most of the functions on the pages no longer work (The Player popup, Playlist page. etc.) Everything works fine on Chrome or my computer at work (Windows 10). There must have been a recent update to FFox that has hosed this page.

This is the penalty I'm paying to let you automatically install updates instead of notifying me of available updates I guess. Anyway here's the link:

Thank you, hopefully you can help me!

Given the increasing number and sophistication of threats, I prefer to do most of my work on the Web with the browser sandboxed, using Sandboxie+ (latest version).

FF 92.x worked fine with Sandboxie+.

FF 93.0 does not.

FF 93.0 sandboxed will not open sites, including National Weather Service ones, local TV stations news sites, national news sites (e.g. Huffington Post), or will take 10+ minutes to open the sites that it will open.

Again, 92.x did not have these problems.

I've looked at the Settings values, and see no difference between the ones I had in 92.x and the ones in 93.0.

The latest Chrome (ugh) version works fine sandboxed - opens sites w.o. problems.

Is there a fix?

Thanks.

Why is Firefox IGNORING any Font Changes? oh yeah and it is actually making them smaller when i try to make them bigger???????????????? And how can i possibly be the first person EVER to have this problem?????????????? Oh yes since I know your "experts" Just Like Google, will ask me a bunch of pointless questions. i am on a Dell running Windows 7 and yes i am going into FIREFOX settings and changing the fonts. They have also already changed on my computer's Display and Appearance Settings. so no one left to blame.

Transferred Firefox and other programs to new computer; however, my Google toolbar (especially bookmarks of concern) did not transfer. I downloaded it again (more than once); it shows up on my Tools/Addo-ons as enabled but does not show up on the View/Toolbar section (never since new computer). I uninstalled and reinstalled, but no luck. What now?

It just started recently. I disabled all plugins but it still didn't fix it. I also tried reseting my preferences and using safe mode, but it still didn't fix it. I've opened firefox on other users on my computer and there's no problem with them. When i put my cursor over any icon on my toolbar, menu bar included, it used to just appear as rounded edge rectangle highlighting the icon. but now it's a white lined not rounded rectangle. I just like the way it used to look. now it just makes firefox seem like an older version

Windows 7, wide screen monitor, script overlap as well in some areas. Font size has no effect. As an example on the Netflix site the the box which allows a choice of DVD or Bluray overlaps the remove X line. As far a script its as if the line space between two lines is halved.

I use LeechBlock to limit my time usage for certain sites, but my self control is pathetic to the point where I automatically, and very quickly end up opening Firefox in safe mode (where LeechBlock is disabled, and all sites work). Thus I am wondering if there is a way to *permanently* disable the safe mode option in firefox. I know that in case something goes goofy with firefox, I will probably have to reinstall, but that isn't too big a deal because I backup my profile regularly.

Of course solving this won't 100% get me working, but it would definately make it a much bigger ordeal to bypass LeechBlock.

Thanks to anyone who can help me (except for hypnotists - I'm not at that point yet!)!
