Hi Firefox users, is a pleasure contact with you.

The reason I write you, is because I have a weird situation:

In my work I develop web sites. Then, I have a certain pages that uses Crystal Reports. Recently, I use the Mozilla Firefox to use that web site.

All was fine, but weeks ago, a user tolds me, that when download a pdf file from the website, the extension of that file is not PDF.

I try to update the browser to the new version, but dosent´t work. Then I had to download again Mozilla Firefox, and then finally works.

Then the download works perfectly...but then the user told me again that the issue appears.

I check again, and I see when there is an update in the browser, tha file extension is changed.

My question is: Is there a form to avoid or solve that issue? The equipment is a MAC. That issue only appears in the MAC and in Firefox (in other browsers and in Windows works fine).

If it helps something, that PDF file is downloaded by Crystal Reports.

Thank you so much, have a nice day.

If I upload a file for an email attachment, google drive upload, etc when I first select "browse" for the file it opens File Explorer in the Desktop directory.

How do I change that to default to the directory I always work from, say for example C:\tmp.

I've seen numerous questions about this with answers that it opens the last directory used, which is true if I do it multiple times, but if I close Firefox and restart it, when I select "browse" it again defaults to the Desktop.

I've also seen answers saying it is controlled by the site being uploaded true. Again this is absolutely not true. I do everything from C:\tmp. Downloads, uploads, editing, searching, etc. And every time I upload a file after starting Firefox fresh after a reboot, again, it defaults to the Desktop even though I'm on the same site (gmail) I was when I last uploaded a file.

As far as the answers saying that was the last directory used, that is false. I do not use the desktop for anything. Not storing icons, not downloading files, not uploading files. I have never uploaded a file from Desktop in my life.

So can anyone answer this without saying 'last directory used' or 'controlled by the website'?

I have recently noticed when I copied web address which was in Japanese after copying on a note pad or even in the MS outlook email it turned like this %E3%82%B9%E3%.

What could be the cause? Is it normal. Any guidance/help will be much appreciated.

Is there a problem with the forum software? Last answers are mentioned in the bottom line of the questions but they are not displayed and they are not counted in the top line. This is inconsistent information. Example the question "embedded grafics are not displayed" which counts 0 answers in the topline but mentions a last answer 18 minutes ago. But this last answer is not displayed, if one opens the question.

Now iOS let’s you set different default browsers I was hoping it would be possible to then open links in the gmail app with Firefox. However when you try to select a default browse within the gmail app Firefox doesn’t even appear on the list, even if you have it installed and set as the system default - the only options it presents are chrome or safari...am I missing something or is this just an issue with the gmail app either awaiting an update or trying to force me to use chrome?

Firefox, latest version, keeps logging me out of sites. I have tried all troubleshooting suggestions offered on the web that I could find, short of starting all over by resetting profile, which I do NOT want to do.

Anyone have any suggestions other than the standard ones about cookies, preference settings having to do with cookies, private browsing, deleting all cookies, deleting cookies files in profile folder, extension issues, etc?

Thank you!
