Expected behaviour of browser.download.panel.shown set to true in about:config: "When a download or multiple downloads are taking place, Firefox will not show the pop-out panel detailing the progress of each file transfer unless you proactively click on the Downloads button in the browser's toolbar. However, if you set the value of this preference to true that panel will automatically appear, overlaying a portion of your main browser window, as soon as a download begins."

Setting browser.download.panel.shown to true doesn't work as described. The download panel stays closed when the download begins. Setting browser.download.panel.shown to false automatically opens the download panel on the next download. But for all following downloads it will not open anymore. And oddly enough browser.download.panel.shown is automatically set to true after that.

I'm just wondering what you had to do with a working version to get this. Send this information to the developers to fix it. After all himself I this do not can, contacts the there is no, and if and there is forms, then of course all on them spat and no one looks that there send.

I am generating links in PHP from the database. A generated link is:

"<a target="_blank" href="events/pdf/oinlineRenwal.6.pdf">Online Renewal</a>"

When I click on the link, it opens the file explorer. It opens a new tab when using Chrome.

The website is https://rscds-sf.org, 'Beginner's Ball Flyer' and 'Truckee Workshop' link.

I have reset the user agent, restarted in safe mode and cleared cache and cookies.

When I right-click to get the "Save Image As" command the only file type available in the drop-down box is All Files - and pictures saved that way will not paste into other applications. How do I get Firefox to save the image in its native format (jpg, png, gif, tiff, etc.) so that it is usable?

It was fine with the add ons b4 the update - I do not understand why we need so many up dates. Multiple FireFox running were the cause last time. I stopped this now I see multi pages every now and again it goes stupid. This is not the fastest browser now it takes 20 to 35 secs to load up and be ready- uses 650mb to 1.2 gig of memory. Slows to react and the curers turns to an I beam. Warning message says FireFox is not responding. This last few up dates have been a let down and an annoyance. I check no update it does - I check to tell me when there is one let me choose to install - After a few days it up dates any way - Why is all this needed - I just want to play a game - it is not in flash- look info or buy a product - it is just bizarre. Anyway i thought you might want to know- the page that says memory problems are solved is not so true- about memory I tried it also - My memory is maxed out in my pc. also hardware is used or not used still acts up - Netscape was the Frontier and I and all who used it were amazed- this is tarnish. If there is a way you can help I will try anything to keep FireFox - I cant buy a new computer -So there I am - Here we are. Game = GoodGames - Bigfarm - Im Bjs. it is a nightmare on FireFox -

I am using Firefox Quantum and when I type something in the address bar Yahoo searches pop up. There are obviously many other people with the same problem as I have seen this same issue brought up multiple times when I have researched this problem. I have looked at the answers provided in the various forums etc. and none have provided an answer that works for me. I have done the "about:config", "about:preferences#search", gone in and deleted or inactivated all add ons, etc. and either the expected response such as looking for the "keyword.url" is not there or does not work. If this can't be fixed I am going to stop using Firefox all together as this Yahoo search thing is SO annoying. I would think that with this being a common problem the help sites for Mozilla/Firefox would have the answer readily available. Furthermore, just my two cents worth, but I think it stinks that either Yahoo or some other associated program hijacks the address bar and changes the search from Google, which is what I had set up, to Yahoo without a warning or even without asking if I would like this. The results that Yahoo search produces are very inadequate.

Opening a pdf file via "open in containing folder", I get the option to open or save. Choose open, I get the option to open or save... and so on ad infinitum.

If I save, then open, I get the above.

Worked two days ago, has worked for years.

I've re-installed FF, even though I was already up-to-date - same scenario as above.

Firefox has ceased being able to open a pdf file.

Hi There, Just today whenever I try and load Reddit it begins loading the webpage, and I can see briefly the page that should be there just before the tab becomes completely blank and not allowing me to view any pages on Reddit (see picture linked). I have tried refreshing, clearing all cookies, but the page still does the same thing and ends up a completely white blank page. I have tried searching for Reddit and loading it on Microsoft Edge, and it works fine. I have ublock origin, Ghostery and Enhancer for YouTube. I have disabled all to see if they are interfering with the loading of the page. Yet it still does not load.

When using Firefox 66.0.2 on MacOS Mojave 10.14.4, when i click links from applications, it opens it 2nd tab

When I open Firefox normally y the application, it just opens one tab (in this case depending on the option set)

But when i click on links in applications (Thunderbird, Apple mail etc). the browser opens: The firx tab is blank, while the second ta displays the page from the clicked link.

Disabling "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" under Preference "help" but doesn't solve the issue as it opens in a new window rather than a 2nd tab. Is there an about:config option i could set?
