After updating to FF 114, I noticed that my history and cookies were no longer being cleared according to my settings. Also, a particular page is now being opened as a pinned tab.

I reverted to FF 113, hoping that this would be fixed in 115. Today I tried 115.0.3, and history is still not being cleared. I have again reverted to FF 113.

I am on Windows 10. My history settings are to use Custom settings and clear history when Firefox closes. Cookie settings are to delete cookies and site data when FF closes.

Is there any intention to fix, or is this some new behavior that I am stuck with? Also, is there a way to clear the pinned tab behavior?

Thanks.

A webpage has 1,200 rows.

I do Select All or drag the cursor from the first row to the last row to highlight all of the rows.

I then do Copy.

When I do Paste (using Match Destination Formatting) to paste the copied rows into an empty Excel spreadsheet, only about 65 rows get posted.

What am I doing wrong?

Infinite number of duplicate download windows

I just spent 15 minutes browsing and downloading a lot of images. When I was done I looked at my downloads folder and saw only half of them there. I checked the download history in firefox, and couldn't see some files. They were not queued or in progress. They weren't in the download list at all.

I reproduced this. I downloaded an image again. Right click, save as, click save. Then that image doesn't appear in the download history.

I tried some variations. Hitting enter instead of clicking save. Opening the image in a new tab and using ctrl-s.

Still, no image in the download history or on disk.

I quit firefox and re-openned. Still the file didn't appear on disk or in the download history.

Then I kept trying, and I got a second issue, which I think is related.

Often when I save an image, instead of one window popping up asking me where to save it, I get a second window popping up ontop of that, then a third, then a fourth. All ontop of each other. All asking the same thing. They take the focus, so it's not possible to interact with the main firefox window to continue browsing.

Sometimes if I hit enter literally 50 times then it will save the same image repeatedly, and eventually I can go back to browsing.

Sometimes there's more than 50 popup windows (my hunch is more than 100). My only solution then is to quit firefox forcefully. Which is annoying if I have state in other tabs that I don't want to lose.

This has happened many times over many weeks. It only happens on some file saves. I can't figure out why it happens on some, not others. (Right click > save, and also ctrl-s, they both do the same thing.)

This form won't let me attach a screen recording. Only screenshots. That's annoying because you can't really see the behavior from the screenshot. But I'll try. See the dark black border outside the download dialogue? That's normally a very faint transparent shadow. But because there's so many duplicate windows all exactly ontop of each other, those multiple transparent shadows have become opaque.

What you can't see from a static screenshot is that I could see each window appear ontop of the other. If I try to select the filename text and edit it, very quickly another window appears ontop with the default filename again. I can see the Firefox icon in the Gnome bar on the left shaking every time a new window pops up.

(Hmm, it looks like I can't *upload* screenshots either. I click browse, select a file, and then it doesn't get uploaded.)

I'm on Ubuntu 22.10 with Wayland.

I don't know if this issue is a bug in Firefox, or in Gnome. I've only seen this behavior with Firefox in Gnome. Not Firefox on another DE/OS. And not any other application in Gnome. This behavior has been intermittent since I bought this laptop and installed Ubuntu about a month ago.

All 3 Deceptive Content and Dangerous Software Protection check boxes are light blue and can not be changed in my Firefox browser settings. I want to be able to uncheck these settings. How do I do that?

It appears that Deceptive Content and Dangerous Software Protection is connecting with google based on what I have researched and this https://www.makeuseof.com/ways-fortify-firefox-browser/ and I view this as a privacy problem.

OS: Mac OS 10.14.5 Firefox Version: 113.0.2

Settings gives me multiple options for handling a .pdf file. The first three are (1) Open in Firefox; (2) Always ask; and (3) Save File.

If I select "Open in Firefox," the file will open in my existing window. If I select "Save File," the file downloads to my desktop.

The problem arises when I select "Always ask." If I then select "Open in Firefox," the file opens (in a new tab!) and simultaneously downloads to my desktop!

Is this a system glitch, or am I somehow doing something wrong?

I am extremely angry that I decided to move from Chrome to Firefox for a safer browser just for Firefox to lose all my login information I accumulated after some years of use. I am not sure when or how this occurred but I never received any notification that nothing was syncing or I had been logged out. I want all my login information restored. On top of that, I've always had issues with Twitch.tv and any video site crashing. My only concern is my logins being restored.

Was working yesterday. I didn't change anything. Calendar loads but can't open or create items. Mail loads, but cannot open or delete emails. Looks like it will open email, but doesn't. Tried restarting computer, clearing site data and checking version of Firefox. Erroneously states updates disabled by site administrator. This is in Linux. Linux says current version of Firefox.

If I use Chrome, this does not happen.

When I use Firefox, Every. Single. Time. I log into gmail, all the instructions are in Chinese. If I just log out, default is Chinese. Do I need to change my email address? Gmail is my work email, also, and it doesn't happen with that account at work, but the default browser is Chrome.

Yes, I've repeatedly changed the language back to English. I have 2-step verification for logging in. I just changed my password, closed all browsers, reset trusted devices. Did not help. If I use Mozilla Firefox, when I type in gmail.com, my email addresses are in English; everything else is Chinese.
