I have cleared cache, disabled extensions, restarted Firefox, all to no avail. This happens consistently with dailykos web pages, but they work perfectly well in Chrome.

There are no error messages.

Thank you for any help.

I have Firefox set to ask me whether to open or save a file, and then when saving to ask me where to save every time. I have noticed that Firefox tends to remember what folder I last saved something in from a specific site (aka, when I download something from dafont.com, it remembers that I saved previous downloads in the "Free fonts" folder and automatically loads that folder). That's convenient and I like this feature.

However, sometimes I need to save to lots of different folders from a site. (For example, if I download images from a stock image site, I want to save the image in the project folder of whichever project I'm working on.) The problem is that Firefox spits out a random folder I may have saved to before, with no rhyme or reason, even if I have just recently saved a bunch of files to one specific folder. For example, I am downloading ten images to save to Project Folder A. Downloading the first image brings up Project Folder B. I navigate to Project Folder A and save. I download the second image and it brings up Project Folder C. I navigate to Project Folder A and save. I download the second image and it brings up Project Folder D. Etc. etc.

Sometimes it does remember the current folder I'm using, but then it will randomly switch in the middle, which is incredibly annoying because I might not notice the switch and then later I can't find what I downloaded, only to eventually find it in a completely unrelated folder. (So for example, I download the first image to Project Folder A. I download the second image, and it brings up Project Folder A. I download the third and fourth images and it brings up Project Folder A. I download the fifth image and it brings up Project Folder E. I save without noticing, or I navigate back to Project Folder A.)

Is there a way to set Firefox to remember download locations for some sites, but to default to the last used for others? Or do I need to just turn the feature off entirely? And if so, how do I do that? (From googling, it does seem other people have had this problem, in 2012 and in 2017. Both were told to update to the latest version of Firefox, which is not helpful for me in 2022, or to modify the Boolean rules for the config setting browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite. I have no idea how to modify a Boolean rule.)

Here's the problem: over the past few days, every time I try to play a Youtube Short, it plays the wrong video, if it plays at all. As best I can tell, what's happening is that it's skipping to the end of the video I'm trying to play and cycling on to the next one.

Frankly, I dislike YT's Shorts format anyway, but some of my favorite content creators use them, so what you gonna do?

I tested it out on Edge, and there doesn't seem to be a problem there.

It doesn't seem to matter whether I try to play the video on YT itself or click an external link. The same results: I can't actually play the video I'm trying to see.

It's only been happening for a couple of days.

Hello,

i have a problem with Rightmove.co.uk webpages. On the webpage where you can see house plans, I zoom into the plan, and the plan just cannot be moved anymore and zoomed as well. I entered Firefox in troubleshooting mode without any extensions enabled and the same issue happened still. I tested the Brave and Chrome, no problems there. I tested Firefox latest version and also the ESR version, both had the same issue. One of the webpage links is below that just freezes, but the same issue happens with all sites when you want to see house plans. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/125021075#/floorplan?activePlan=1&channel=RES_BUY Please help me.

Thank you. itaavo

Recently there have updates to AT&T Yahoo Mail and Facebook

In the latest version of Firefox Browser 105.0.2 the AT&T Yahoo email page is very slow to load on the browser. Also emails cannot be deleted nor can attachments be downloaded or uploaded. None of the tools in the upper toolbar for the email page will function. Emails cannot be replied to forwarded or moved to folders.

In Facebook new Facebook posts cannot be shared with other FB Pages.

All of these functionalities do operate properly on the Google Chrome Browser.

Firefox has been my default browser since maybe version 10. Recently I cannot sign in to a frequently used site. It is https://www.kroger.com/signin?redirectUrl=/rx/dashboard . I get the message "We're sorry, an unexpected error occurred. Please try signing in again." I can sign in on Edge and Chrome, both of which I hate. I suspect it has to do with privacy but can't pin down what.

I am still trying to get Firefox to download and install ESR updates with users that never use Firefox. I have GPOs in place and if I open Firefox it will update obviously. If I open Firefox for 5 seconds and close it I do see that the update downloads and eventually installs. I saw an article that states the "Requirements to Run" and wanted to clarify. See below "Firefox must have a default profile, and it must run using that profile at least once after the feature is enabled." Does this requirement mean that Firefox will never update unless it is opened at least once? Why is this a requirement if so. I have Chrome and Edge updating with ease without ever opening it. If I am missing something please help me. Thank you! I can provide anything else you need for clarification.
