Today using Firefox 93.0 on my Windows 10 home computer I opened the browser to my Audible library on Audible.com and selected a book to download. The browser download window opened with the book file name but the extension wasn't .AAX but had been changed to .MP4. This did not happen when I used Microsoft Edge nor did this happen on my Windows 10 laptop which was still running Firefox 92.0. Once Firefox upgraded to 93.0 on my laptop I now get the same problem as I get on my home computer.

Audible technical support looked into the problem and found that this change wasn't caused by their servers.

I have discovered that if I change the file extension from MP4 to AAX I can load the audible book into iTunes and sync it over to my iPhone which is able to play the file as an audible book. This indicates to me that the actual AAX file was not converted to MP4. For some reason only the file extension was changed.

I wasn't able to find any setting in the Firefox browser that corrected this problem.

When dowloading an AAX type file from Audible, Firefox changes it to MP4 (downloads as AAX with other browsers).

Note, changing the file type after the download fixes the problem. But, is there a way to prevent it from happening in the first place? Also, why changing file type in the first place?

this is the 2nd time I asked this question. I downloaded firefox browser onto my chrome book then I clicked on the box saying "download complete." Then another box pops up saying "this file is not supported. Please go to chrome web store and find one there that can open this app." So which app/file in chrome web store will help me get firefox on this chromebook laptop computer permanently. I've already downloaded firefox on this computer at least a dozen times and I get the same result. NOTHING in return from this support team.

Please tell me how I can regain control over my own computer, and block companies hijacking or derailing it. I'm very tired of incessant reminders of unwanted updates, as well as their arbitrary limitations, and apparently will somehow have to remove layers of them to regain flash player stolen away by Adobe. If only they had left well enough alone...

The Firefox 78 ESR is the last version of Firefox that supports Flash - how can I reinstate it? Do I have to roll back browser versions to regain control of my own computer? If I had a problem with Flash, I would have dealt with it myself!

Does Open Office respect customers' rights better? I hope so!

Have update from 89.0.2 to 93.0 today, and like many others it seems been caught out by the assurance that passwords & logons would automatically be transferred. I've found the advice about copying key4.db & logins.json from the Old Firefox data folder that has appeared on my desktop. The problem is I can see key4.db but there is no trace of logins.json. I have show hidden files enabled. Have tried searching the folder and still got no trace. NB there was also no logins.json in new profile folder until I created an account for this support posting, although I realise it may not create until a log on is saved.

The issue is the missing passwords are computer generated and only saved in my firefox browser, and there were definitely some saved with usernames etc.

I noticed a comment that logons.json is a text document. I only have 4 of those - AlternateServices, pkcs11, SecurityPreloadState & SiteSecurityService State. I assume none of these could be logins under a different name?

Hi, I have a Librem Mini running PureOS based on Linux Debian. I downloaded the binary package of Firefox from the Firefox download page, but may not have installed it properly. I can only run the browser by going to Files, Home, double click the Firefox folder and double clicking the file Firefox. Works perfect, but would like to have the shortcut in my Applications window like all of my other apps. Can anyone help? Thanks, Chris
