Hello, I am unable to download files from Google Drive. On clicking the download button for a file or right-clicking a file and select the download option, a new blank page opens in the same tab and no popup window appears to save the file or view it.

Actually I did a little bit of a research and tried downloading different types of files and there I noticed this strange thing - 1. Whenever I try to download a file that was uploaded to the drive at some time, it is not downloading and instead a blank page opens and no download popup window appears. 2. Well, here is the strange part: When I tried downloading a file that was created using Google services (say Google docs), and not uploaded, the download popup window appears without opening a blank page. In this case, the file is downloading.

On the other hand when I tried downloading the files from Google Drive using Google Chrome, there is no such problem.

Currently I am using the latest version of Firefox, i.e, Version 61.0.2 (64-bit). I tried different solutions listed for this problem but none of them worked. I created a new profile and using this profile checked whether the problem still persists and yes it has not resolved. Also I tried deleting the handlers.json file in my profile, but it also didn't work.

continuation of this thread - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1223137

I've followed the https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/use-firefox-interface-other-languages-language-pack. However it doesn't change the interface language. They are still all in English.

I've just updated it to the latest version in order to use the language pack.

I do this instead of using an edition of the language I want because I suppose I could change the language on the fly, instead of installing two editions of different languages on the same system.

Opening next to the previous-in-sequence tab absolutely does not work (I'm a stack type) so I end up dragging URLs to the far right of the tab bar -- which is a pain. This wasn't a problem with older Firefox versions e.g. 54, but it's broken now (61) and none of the available extensions address tab location.

I took a Netflix account today, but I get a error when clicking on play. On their site it gives optoins on what can be causing this and the only thing I didn't do yet, is update the Widevine Content Decryption Module. But when I got to the plug-in, right-mouse click on Widevine Content Decryption Module and the choose 'find updates', nothing happens at all. There's also no message that the last update may already be installed. Hopefully you can help. In case this helps, the Nexflix error code is: Foutcode: F7701-1003

I find video autoplay very irritating on news sites and had this disabled in previous versions of Firefox but find this no longer works in Firefox 61.0.1. I would welcome any advice as to how I can prevent video autoplay once more. I have media.webm.enabled, media.ogg.enabled and media.wave.enabled all set to false, as is media.autoplay in about:config.

Many thanks in anticipation.

Firefox help says "When you enter a username and password that you haven't already saved for a website, Firefox will ask if you want to save it. "

But it doesn't always. I want it to remember username/password for a particular website, but Firefox doesn't ask. I have "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" checked, and the website is not on my saved logons list. Is there a way to force Firefox to remember the username/password for a particular site, perhaps by manually editing the saved logons list (where is it?)? Thanks.

Some time this week [?] things went wrong. Last Firefox update was to 61.0+linuxmint1+sylvia on 13/07/18 and included update of the flash-plugin.

Elsewhere I have found mention of... https://www.youtube.com/html5/ which informs me under "What does this browser support?" that my browser supports all of the six items listed.

I also have the Chromium Browser installed which reports the same but has no problems playing media on Twitter. Last update was 17/07/18 and at the same time chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra was updated.

I run NoScript uBlockOrigin and PrivacyBadger in Firefox but switching them off has no effect.

What else might I try?

Thanks.

FF will not save my password for at least one site. The issue is not related to the site. All other Browsers are able to save the user and name and password to this site.

I am using FF 61.0.1. I have noticed that "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" is greyed out. I have FF set to remember history. I have already read about how some people who has this problem in earlier versions were able to fix the problem by not using Private Browsing (which I am not) and by launching FF as an Administrator, which also doesn't take care of my problem.

I have even imported the saved logins from Chrome where this works, and even that did not address the issue. If someone can tell me what is causing this to be greyed out, I think that will be the answer to the problem.

I have been using Firefox as my default application to open PDF files and everything worked correctly until recently. Now when I open a PDF, the file opens a blank browser tab and continues to open more blank tabs until I close Firefox to stop more tabs from opening.

I have restarted Firefox in safe mode and get the same results.
