Just jumped from 91ESR to 102ESR, and am annoyed by some new "features". (That's why I use ESR, so this doesn't happen often.)

First, I noticed that the default for downloading changed from "ask" to "save". I eventually found how to fix that, but, in the process of searching, I typed "firefox download" in the urlbar, and suddenly up popped "Trying to fix a problem?", suggesting I reset Firefox.

I'm old enough to remember Clippy (look it up), and feel the same way as I did then. Call this new feature "Flippy".

I did some searches, found that this behavior has been called "intervention" (I prefer "Flippy"). I also found old sugesstions on how to disable it, but they don't seem to work.

Even Microsoft provided a way of disabling Clippy. How do I disable "Flippy"?
