Greetings everyone,

I know this might be a strange question, but I'm completely serious as I've been feeling soooo much anxiety around it.

I need to download a couple hundred individual files.

My basic question is this: How can I verify that the files I download are 100% completed?

Is there any way for me to be 100% certain that the files I've downloaded have been successfully downloaded?

I'd really appreciate any advice.

My Top Sites works well if there is a short name under the tile or I recognize the thumbnail. In other cases I see something like "Websu..." as the title. Hover over that and I should see a tooltip with the long name completed.

Is it possible for Firefox to put tooltips for when the name ends in "...?"

Is there another work-around I can use -- create a thumbnail that better identifies the site is one that comes to mind. Rename the site with a shorter name?

Thank you.

I have been having major problems with Firefox. It constantly crashes when I open certain sites, when print from some non processing sources. It even crashed with I followed your instructions that I found online about crashing to go to the Menu & Help & About Firefox. It crashed when I clicked on About Firefox. I have the updated version & I have uninstalled & reinstalled numerous times, but nothing fixes the crashing problem. I am going to have change my default browser unless there is a solution to this problem. Please contact me & advise me how to fix this. It is very frustration. Thank you.

I set up Firefox in Options to "save" downloaded PDF files. I do not want to launch the Firefox internal PDF viewer or any other 3rd party PDF viewer. However, whenever I download a PDF file Firefox pops up an empty PDF viewer window. This window completely obscures the Firefox browser window and requires me either to closethe viewer or move it out of the way. This is an enormous pain, as my job requires me to download many PDFs throughout the day. M y question is: is there a way to disable Firefox from launching its PDF viewer window when I download and save a PDF file? If there isn't, I urge the Firefox development team to update Firefox to prevent its PDF viewer from launching when downloading PDFs.

When I open a tab and visit a website, the vertical slider on the right is sometimes black with a black background, or grey with a grey background. When it's grey, the slider bar is slightly darker than the line. When it's black on black, the color is exactly the same and I can't see the slider bar.

Is there an option to change the color of the slider line or the bar?

I had been reading the Firefox review on "Surveillance Capitalism" on 2/25/2020. Then I had installed the Firefox add on "Facebook Container", and shut down. On 2/26/2020 the links to privacy issues that had previously appeared at the bottom of the Firefox opening page disappeared. As an end user, not an IT expert, are these issues related?
