I noticed during a firmware download with the file extension .DAT that Firefox removed the extension. The file was not recognizable during an attempted firmware upgrade afterward. This is a new issue occurring sometime in the past several months, since last firmware update. Firefox preferences are set to download .DAT files. No other settings are listed for that file extension. I verified the issue points toward Firefox by checking the download with another web browser which completed the download with the extension.

Hi

1st off thanks for creating a web that is open and free and all the amazing and great work you guys do!!!! I appreciate your work and organization.

My suggestion is I like to have firefox able to have my banking details readily available. Meaning I like to add my banking info from my 3 banks and paypal acc directly into Firefox. I am always paying for items through firefox web browser, and have to keep adding in my details to the website that I am buying from. e.g I will have to get my wallet and take out my card add the 16 digit number and the cvv & I got to make sure those number are correct. This is a lot of work to keep on doing every time I need to buy something its ridiculous!! It be cool to directly access my funds from my firefox browser and have direct access to my banking portal. I sure there will be a lot of issues with privacy, but I'm sure you guys can make this happen in some way.

Hello! I've been having an issue ever since I downloaded firefox for my Mac where, no matter what the streaming service, I cant stream in full HD, 1080p quality. My monitor can display Full HD, and I just bought a 4K HDMI cable to try and fix this issue. Didn't work. I did download Crome to see if anything can help, but that had the same quality problem. However, it DOES stream Full HD on Safari, but I much prefer firefox.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Not sure what happened. I thought I clicked on an update and suddenly Firefox refused to open. I had to re-install Firefox and not sure how to get my preset tabs and history back. I could really use your help as I'm not the most computer literate person and also thanks in advance. Right now everything is in pink, not my fav, to differentiate from what I had before. I deleted my original firefox icon on my taskbar as It would not open or give me internet access.

I recently had to restore my computer. Doing that I have to get the new firefox which I now have version 102. Updates disabled instantly. I was on version 88. On version 88 this feature was not on it and version 102 now has this feature and I do not like it.

The feature I am talking about is if you open the downloads panel and view the downloads list and right click on one of the downloaded files in list there is now an option to Delete. I accidentlly hit this and thought it was just deleting it from downloads panel. Nope it deletes it from computer permanently, not even to recycle bin. Click Delete its gone for good until download it again.

And this delete option is right above the option remove from history, which I use a lot.

So I want to know how to disable this delete option? Thanks

Evening, all.

It's very rare I ask for help on ANY fora, if I'm honest. I can almost always sort out my own issues, especially with browsers. However, this one has stumped me.

I've noticed that, on any website where user interaction requires use of a microphone, the Linux build of Firefox only ever offers "source_default_name" for choice of microphone. Well, OK; I can see this being fine for the vast majority of folks who use a laptop; the built-in microphone WILL be the "default" microphone, no questions.

My question is this; what do those of us running desktop PCs do about microphone selection, hmm? A desktop PC doesn't HAVE a "built-in, default microphone", does it? By their very nature, any microphone you're going to use with a desktop is going to be an externally plugged-in device. I have three of these; a USB microphone.....a wireless headset, and the twin stereo mikes on a Logitech c920 webcam.

Do I get anything resembling a drop-down list to choose what I want to use? Uh-uh. Firefox - apparently! - doesn't "see" any of them. Not individually. All I ever see is "source_default_name".....

Grrrr...!!

C'mon, guys! Frankly, this is about as much use as a chocolate teapot. Linux, to the best of my knowledge - unlike Windoze - doesn't make 'global' device settings, which every application then uses. It's always been far more fine-grained than that, allowing individual device use on a per-app basis. But that only works if the 'app' in question allows those choices to be made.

Any Chromium-based "clone" - and I use several of these, as I package portable versions for the Puppy Linux community - will give a full drop-down list of every available device it can find. Why can't the Linux builds of Firefox do the same?

I shall be interested to see what, if any, replies I get to this question. It's been bugging me for years...!

Mike.
