I normally choose my download location and if they're zip I'll delete them after extract.

The problem is currently I can't find any way to get where did I put my downloaded files if it's not there.

BUT!!! In order to know the files aren't there, Firefox has to know where did I put them.

I searched the home folder but nothing named `download` is in the folder.

I asked a question for what should I do https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1312757 but doesn't get anything remotely useful.

When I opened Firefox this morning, I got a pop-up I've never seen before, that said something like "Firefox is slow. Refresh Firefox." So I did that. Then I added back the add-ons I want to use. The add-ons are installed and working. But there are no icons in the toolbar. There is no overflow arrow. Just a blank space where the icons used to be. I've searched for solutions for two hours now. Can't figure it out.

Hi, I have a weird issue if I scroll with my mouse down a webpage I'll get these jagged horizontal lines in the middle of the screen but go away when I stop. Also, when I watch a video where a lot of moving is happening like if it's a hockey game the middle of the screen just that jagged line across in just the middle. What causes this and how do I get rid of it I don't notice on Internet Explorer browser and I've tried disabling hardware and stuff but doesn't work.

Hello, I have had this problem for a while now and I am not sure when it happened but it's been like this for around a year now.

Some we websites (NOT ALL) appear to me like they have a thin, pixelated font and it's hard to read them sometimes. See screenshot.

I have already checked my Windows' ClearType settings and that seems to be fine. Is there another solution to this?

Hi, I just installed Kubuntu 20.10 on an USB flash drive. System's font size is fine. But, the font size of Firefox's interface is so tiny. The font size of webpages are fine and I am able to change it in the Preferences.

When I searched on Google, the other users having same problem recommended to add a 'userChrome.css' file with some code that specify the font size to the Firefox's folder. Then, I came to know that Mozilla has disabled the userChrome.css in recent Firefox versions. I also changed a setting in about:config to make the Firefox accept the userChrome.css. But, the font size is not changing yet.

Please, guide me how to change the font size of Firefox's interface. Thanks in advance :)

I am disabled and cannot type, and colleges 100% online this year because of CovId 19. When I tried to download the add-on for Dragon naturally speaking the program I use to write Foxfire says that it appears to be corrupted and will not allow me to download it. I know it's not corrupted because I have downloaded it from the same site for chrome. Can anybody tell me how to get around this problem? My sincerest thanks Kevin Arthur Cleveland

Firefox has a "list all tabs" button, which looks like a "v" in the tabs bar, next to the plus. It works great but when I maximize the window (not F11 full screen, but Windows OS Maximize Window), this button disappears. Seems like a bug; I can't think why you would want that button to be removed when the window is maximized.

Some time in the last month or so Firefox has started downloading .csv files as .json. I need the files in .csv format so I can work with them in Excel. These are large files I don't want to deal with the trouble of converting them every time. I've started using Chrome just so the files download correctly. I can't find any setting to change to make .csv the default again.

Hello, we have a CVS repository which can be browsed using viewvc. In this repository there are some .docx files which are MS Word documents. Until about one week ago, clicking on such a link brought up a dialog asking what Firefox should do with this file. One of the options is to open it with Word (see image 'ChooseWord').

But now this is no longer possible. I believe it vanished in the course of the automatic Firefox updates. Now the dialog looks like in the attached image 'NoWord'.

How can I restore the old behaviour?

Thanks, gernot
