Disable automatic downloading of files without confirmation

Firefox starts downloading files immediately before confirming download dialog. In other words when you trigger a download firefox automatically starts the download process even if you do not select open or save from the pop-up dialog window. This behavior can be observed within Developer tools > network, or through system network statistics, or when you actually start the download it starts from a nonzero file size value.

Is it possible to disable this 'auto download in background' feature? Considering my connection speed & data cap I would rather prefer not to have this feature because it uses so much junk data for things I decided not to download. I tried searching about:config page but could not find a relevant parameter and did not want to break the browser by messing around.

If this has been discussed before could somebody point me to right direction? I am using version 61 by the way.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Does the Network Monitoring component of the Firefox Developer Tools have a way to preserve its log upon navigation (which would otherwise be cleared), similar to the Chrome or Safari Developer Tools "Preserve log upon navigation" button?

I've tried checking the "Enable persistent logs" option for the Web Console in settings, but it does not appear to affect the Network Monitoring tab. I also didn't see any bugs filed for it, so I just wanted to make sure I wasn't overlooking something obvious.

Thanks, Kevin

So most updates stop the functionality of addons I REQUIRE DAILY! I would rather ONLY UPDATE AFTER MY NECESSARY ADDONS ARE COMPATIBLE. Other than that IE is as functional as Firefox. Without functioning addons Firefox is pointless. Please allow us(the end user) the ability to wait till addons are compatible before we(the end user) choose to update.

In contrast to the same os/firefox combination running on my (10 years old) laptop pc, no widevine Content Decryption Module (CDM) addon seems to be available. This means starting of videos from respective sources after proper login does not take place. (I am sorry for the English)

I'm using Firefox ESR 24.5.0 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 with GNOME 2.28.2.

It gives me that error when I try to view this image http://graphbench.org/images/hairball-header-cropped.jpg

It's only 1170x311 and 81.1kB so size shouldn't be a problem. When I ctrl-s to save the image, it opens fine in GIMP, Eye of Image viewer GNOME 2.28.2, and gThumb image viewer 2.10.11. Opening the image in Firefox from my hard drive fails with the same error. I have no extensions installed and it fails even in safe mode. The image loads fine in Firefox on a different (Windows) computer on the same network.

I've shift-refreshed to reload the image and that doesn't help. I yum uninstalled firefox, deleted my .mozilla folder, and yum installed firefox again but the problem remains. I went into about:config and there were no bold network.http.* prefs. The permissions for the domain are not restricted. I went to "Tools > Page Info > Media" and the image was not blocked. permissions.default.image is set to default. I "Allow pages to choose their own colors, instead of my selections above". When loading this page http://graphbench.org/ I get this error in the web console "[13:44:33.313] Image corrupt or truncated: http://graphbench.org/images/hairball-header-cropped.jpg @ http://graphbench.org/images/hairball-header-cropped.jpg" Four other images fail on that same page: images/nelson.jpg images/myers.jpg images/ceze.jpg and images/kahan.jpg .

Having the top tabs disappearing is very, very annoying. Besides, the top tabs let me know where I am at a glance. This constant appearing and disappearing depending on where my cursor is disorienting.

I understand the desire to maximize page content, but I am willing to sacrifice some space to know where I am and avoiding the constant jumping of the screen content.

I am working with Firefox 52.1.2 on Ubuntu 14.04 (x86). In general I can see characters correctly, but sometimes I see a Unicode replacement character (octal 357 277 275), for example on this page:

http://www.mathhelp.com/how_to/slope-intercept_form/using_slope-intercept_form_to_graph_a_line/

I see "equation of a line is y = 3/4 x (?) 2" and I suspect from context the replaced character is a dash or minus sign.

I have verified that I enabled the option for pages to download their own fonts.

I'm trying to find out exactly what was the replaced character so that I can try to find a font to install which contains it, but when I copy and paste the text, I get the Unicode replacement character, not the original character. How can I find out what's the original character?

I tried looking at the page source -- no luck, the replacement character appears there too.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hi Everyone. I'm experiencing the follow screen crash when I opening Firefox after turned on my laptop. To recover normal view I need to restore and maximize it again. It's curious, because just happen when I'm opening Firefox at first time after start up. I'm using ubuntu 18.04 LTS and Firefox 71.0 (64-bit) with this extensions: keep note (google), Adblocker Ultimate, Simple Translate, Ublock Origin, Google TM Translator and Dark Reader. Additionally, dialog box, like where to save files ever open in my second monitor (yes, I'm using 2).

I'm using the same version and extensions another Windows PC and all things looks like good. It's I'm not sure if the problem is OS or Firefox.

Thank you all

I'm a web developer that setup a local environment under Linux Mint.

For some reason, Firefox Developer Edition (59.0b7 64-bit) cannot access sites on my localhost. The interesting thing is that Firefox Quantum 58.0.1 (64-bit) is showing these local sites perfectly fine. I've tested other browsers, including Konqueror and Lynx, and these work fine also.

I've setup my environment so that apache2 can serve pages from a 'wildcard' virtual host. Using symlinks, I can link my project files to another directory that functions as the web root. Thus:

/home/me/business/projects/client/index.html => /home/me/business/www/client/index.html

Navigating to http://client.dev brings up the page perfectly in Firefox 58, Konqueror, and Lynx.

However, Firefox Developer Edition, AND Google Chrome, both fail to load the page. The URL changes from http://client.dev to https://client.dev and throws this message:

"Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at client.dev."

I've played around with the about:config settings for Network.dns.* but nothing seems to help. Also, the apache logs do not produce anything useful.

Your input will be greatly appreciated.

I have Ubuntu 10.1 and want to install a new version of Firefox. I have downloaded the tar bz2 file from their website. I have it in my Downloads folder along with an extracted file folder Firefox. I guess I can remove the old version in Terminal with: sudo apt-get remove firefox. My question is, what Terminal command string do I use to install the new tar file? I guess it will have to point to the extracted folder or the tar file in my download folder.

I can run the new Firefox from the download firefox folder but it will not save any of my bookmarks when closed.

btw none of the older links work for install.

There used to be a button in the toolbar which let you see the RSS feed for a site, then it got removed but you could add it back through the customization menu. Now I can't seem to even do that.

I guess that Firefox used the RSS button for its live bookmarks feature, and since they removed the live bookmarks they seem to have also removed the button? I only ever used the button to get the feed addresses though, so I could paste them into my RSS reader. So... if I could get the button back it would be great. Otherwise, maybe there's a plugin which does the same thing?
