I'm using Firefox 78.0.2 on Windows 10 Pro build 19041.388 Bootcamped on a MacBook Pro. Every time there is a Firefox upgrade available, it downloads but then gives an error message "Update Failed", requiring a manual download and install. What can I do to automate the update installs? Thank you.

Checked with Autoruns - and it shows nothing related to mozilla except maintenance service, which is already disabled. No shortcuts in start menu, registry clean, startup tab in task manager is clean... HOW does firefox still manage to start after boot? How is this done? Please note I am NOT looking for a way to disable this behavior (already know how).

Using Little Snitch to block unwanted internet traffic, I need to know ALL of the websites Firefox uses to do updates & "maintenance". Does list exist?

I'm running Firefox on a MacBook Pro, OS X 10.14. Little Snitch intercepts all web traffic and "allows" or :"blocks" each connection. Firefox is now unable to do routing updates, and I do not know which wesites it needs access to. I am hoping that there will be a lost of all of the websites it accesses. Thanks.

You used to be able to add a new folder by picking "new folder" and then add the name of the folder. Now when I want a new folder, that choice is not there. When I want to move a new folder, all I had to do was hit move to and a menu would appear of previous folders. And you had a chance to save a new folder if that was your wish, or scroll down and find a folder is already there. Now I do not have that choice to start a new folder.

Download files directly without showing the Opening window

Hi, whenever I want to download something, Firefox shows me a Opening window. If I mistakenly select the "Open with" button, a file is downloaded to my /tmp/ directory and then opened with an application, which takes a huge amount of RAM for stuff like iso.

The another thing is that it's very annoying and takes a lot of time if you want to download many files from many websites. You have to manually choose save file for all the files you download, and the "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" option is greyed out.

Is there a way disable the "Opening" window and just download the files I wish to download?
