Downloading and Opening docx Firefox appends doc onto file

I am using Hotdocs portal, which is an in-house document assembly tool. Firefox is the recommended browser, but it is recently handling 2016 docx files incorrectly. When we choose a file on the portal site (internal site), we go through the interview and are presented with a link to "download" the assembled file. When you click that link, a pop-up appears showing the file name as abc.docx but then says it is a Word 97 - 2003 document, even though it is not. The original template is not. If I choose to open the file, it ends up opening and showing as abc.docx.doc If I save the file, instead of opening it, it saves as abc.docx.

If we run this same process in IE/Edge, the file opens as abc.docx as it should. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Is there anything that could be causing this? I've tried a bunch of troubleshooting steps and nothing seems to change this outcome.

Thank you.

I use Firefox Developer Edition (84.0b4) on macOS and pretty much never restart Firefox. Because of this I frequently miss updates. Chrome shows an update badge on the menu icon in the toolbar.

Is this built into Firefox aswell? I couldn't find anything like this and there doesn't seem to be an addon for this either.

I'm trying to use a custom start page on new tabs opening (not happy that I have to use an extension for such basic functionality btw) but my service worker does not seem to activate or used when opening. Opening a new tab takes multiple seconds.

Navigating to the site (I have my start page hosted on AWS) on an existing tab is instantaneous, as is refreshing this page once the tab is loaded. So what gives? As far as I can tell Firefox doesn't install service workers on a per-tab basis, so there should be no issue here.

MS has begun 'grabbing' my FF browser - does this about once a week. It closes my tabs, kills my search engine and substitutes bing. This, I assume, is malware from MS and may have come in with the new Windows 10:

First - I want to make Mozilla aware this is happening.

Second - how can I prevent those bastards from grabbing the browser and making me re-install my tabs - all this takes about a half hour?

Thanks,

said differently, I don't want to cancel it definitly because I use it on another computer and I want to recover it after my PC repair.

If you can help me I will really appreciate

I am using Firefox Nightly on Linux.

I have two M171 Logitech mouses. Their scroll wheel works fine everywhere except firefox (chrome works fine, for instance). In firefox, I need to press the scroll wheel down, keep it down and scroll. Then, it scrolls. But just freely scrolling with the mouse does not scroll the page, it does nothing. This happens in every web page. Interestingly, if I use the scroll wheel in the popup of an addon (for instance in the tab listing of a group in Simple Tab Groups), it works there. But not in web pages or the sidebar. I have also tried entering safe mode, but it didn't help.

Did anyone have this issue too?

How can I solve this problem?

I managed to compile firefox on linux ubuntu but did not generate the executables for windows.

Then I started configuring on windows, but I believe the problem is with the Visual Studio version, I installed the latest version of VS 2019, then I found that it doesn't work, because VS 2019 now requires the "C" compiler version 10, and mozbuild uses version 9.

I ended up discovering in other documentation that I have to use visual studio 2017, but I installed VS 2017 version 15.9.29, however it gives error in the compilation.

I found in other documentation that I must use VS 2017 version 15.8, but this version is not available for download.

Can anyone help me what I have to do to be able to compile it?

As the title says, a couple of days ago I noticed that all progress bars in YouTube thumbnails have disappeared. The "Watched" text is also gone. I tried clean reinstall, removing all add-ons, but it did not help. Just to check, I installed Chrome - everything visible (see image - FF left, Chrome right), which would suggest that something is up with Firefox. I also check the history settings on YouTube, everything is turned on, and I see viewing progress in thumbnails when I'm on the history settings page, but not on "normal" YouTube.

I would appreciate any sort of help or advice. My life doe snot depend on this feature, but I really like it and it helps navigate YouTube more efficiently.
