Up-to-date Firefox on Windows 10 laptop. Today, for the 2nd time in a week or so, the “mailto” function has disappeared; i.e., if I click a “Send email” link on a webpage, the Windows dialogue box to select a mail app pops up. When I check the applications setting, mailto doesn't appear in the list.

The first time this happened, I found online instructions to refresh Firefox and select Gmail as the mail client. I don’t mind doing it again, but I am concerned about the problem occurring so soon after the recent refresh.

For over a decade I've used FF, and when I download things (99% of the time from Yahoo) I set FF to "always ask" what to do with downloads. Suddenly that changed and it started downloading everything automatically to the Download Folder.

I went to options and changed everything back to "always ask."

FF does always ask... but... it ALSO still auto downloads to the Downloads Folder now.

And I can't figure out how to stop that.

Any help is appreciated.

When I download a file before I even have a chance to save or open the file Firefox downloads the file and puts it on my desktop. I have to look at lots of .pdf files and this a bit annoying as I have to keep deleting all the files I dont want. The dialog box opens and I always choose open rather than save but Firefox has already saved a copy to my desktop. How can I stop this autosave please ? Cheers.

If I choose "Continue to HTTP site", the address bar shows that the address is indeed HTTPS! Have I been hacked? Do I have a virus? I can find no help elsewhere. I have saved the error message but, using your "Browse" below will not show it in my documents.

Before COVID, I would travel about once a year. I would just copy the profile from my office email machine to my laptop, set the desktop computer to stop downloading emails (the laptop was always set to leave them on the server), and go traveling. When I returned and turned my regular email machine back on, turn the "leave on server" off, and download all the emails to it.

The COVID break from traveling meant that some file formats had changed. When I tried to load the v78 profile from my desktop to v68 on the laptop, I got a lot of errors, and went on to do other chores. Now I've come back to this issue and decided to just load v 102 to my laptop. I want to be able to load all those emails and the address book. Does v 102 read earlier versions of files, and which ones? I have a large volume of emails that I want to load, review, and then archive about 99% of them. I really need to retrieve the address books, get rid of duplicates and dead addresses, and then save about 85% of them a vcards before deleting them from the address book.

It would really help to have a list of the files that changed with each version, so that we can see what files we need to look for.

I'm hoping that 102 will convert all previous formats, and if not, I can have a list so I can migrate these v 68 files to 102 when it imports them.

Dear Support,

I am running FireFox v103.0.1 on Windows 10 64 bit system. I am using Windscribe VPN service. I never had any issue logging into Gmail using this extension prior to the latest FF update.

I was able to login to my Gmail account on 2 Aug 2022. When I updated to the latest version of FireFox I kept receiving the following message. (see attached screenshot).

I have tried all advice on the Help Forums. I have even tried restoring my system to a previous restore point. Nothing has helped.

Please let me know what else I can try to remedy this issue.

So I have a website that had SSL revoked, but I just got it reissued and installed/activated.

Since it's back I'm still having issues connecting to the website on Firefox/Safari still, but not chrome.

Even though if I personally fix the error issue it's probably happening to other people using the same browser (I think?)

So my question is will the error ever go away on itself over time or is my website inaccessible to anyone using firefox unless they fix the error themselves in their OWN browser settings?

Hello,

I am running FF v103.0.1 on a Windows 10 laptop (with latest OS update installed). I am using Windscribe VPN. I have never had an issue logging into Gmail until the latest FF update.

When I try to login to Gmail I keep getting Your browser is not secure when I try to login to Gmail using FF v103.0.1. I followed the advice given to another user with the same issue. I put FF into troubleshoot mode. Login issue was resolved. I know I can't run FF in this manner all the time.

Can anyone please tell me how to fix the Gmail login issue I'm experiencing? Please let me know. Thank you.

Currently @ Ver. 102.0.1 Problem remains. Since the update to 102.0 my Win10 PC has problems with the page update. When the scroll slider gets near the bottom the page, new images begin to load. This reload results in 3-15+ newly loaded Fb posts scrolling past so fast as to be invisible. I have to keep my cursor on the scroll slider and, when the loading begins, start scrolling up if I want to have any chance to easily find the last post I was reading. I have seen this behavior, grossly exaggerated, when I was viewing a video. The reload caused the viewing to pause and upwards of 15 newly loaded posts scrolled past in this rapid manner. My work requires that I am able to view pages of Facebook posts and this is now massively time-consuming and intolerable. I may have to change browsers in spite of my reluctance to do so.

Seriously Firefox, after last update yet another few websites stopped working for me, pCloud being critical but not the only one.

<rant> I've been using the browser since before version 1.0 days, but tell me honestly - why would I keep trying to use it any longer when most of sites are not working as expected (banking services, cloud services, stuff like that) and Firefox isn't looking nor behaving much different from any other browser anymore - except that it's constantly giving me headaches? The fact that I like your DevTools best is the only reason I haven't made the switch - yet, but you surely push me to.

It's supposed to be Internet Browser, not Internet Breaker. </rant>
