Hello,

Windows 10 Desktop Computer Updated, Firefox 92.0

The folder I need yo go to in Documents, it goes to Downloads Instead Automatically!

When I try to get an attachment, for an email I'm sending out, it goes to the wrong folder. It just sits there doing nothing, with the hour glass on. I wait and wait, so I can change the location. Most times it doesn't stop. A very few times, when that stops, I located which folder I need, and it just goes into the hour glass mode again!

If I click on the screen, an error message comes up with something like, program not responding, do you want to close the program? or wait until it stops? With thus, I think it's dealing with the Folder that isn't responding! BUT no, when I click to close the program, LO And Behold, Firefox Closes!

I have a lot of attachments, I need to deal with. It doesn't ask me, which folder I want to get the attachment from?

Any Help Here?

Thank You!! Take Care!! Everyone Stay Healthy and Safe (Pets Also)!!!

Im on a mac running 10.13.6 and my personalized fonts (papyrus) aren't completely working since last update. I didnt get a response to my search so thought I'd say something. I tried changing to a different font but it didn't take either after I restarted firefox. I don't have the allow sites to use their fonts checked, so I'm clueless... thanks

Is there a way to change the location of the default storage directory? I'm talking about ~/.mozilla/firefox/tjdaag57.default-release/storage/default which gradually fills with files from all the websites I've visited. That directory slowly increases in size and I don't want that, so I'm looking for a way to change the location where these files go.

I'm using Firefox on a desktop (OSX Catalina 10.15.7) with multiple monitors. If I go into full screen mode on any youtube video , e.g., Welcome to Firefox (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRlmP6xWdw0), not only do I lose access to the menubar on the fullscreen monitor, I lose it on the other two monitors I have open Firefox windows.

The browser.fullscreen.autohide setting does not make a difference. I would expect that the only monitor that the menubar is hidden on is the one displaying the fullscreen content.

The attached Monitor1, Monitor2 images show the missing menubar on the respective monitors where a Firefox browser window is open.

When I print PDF with Firefox, it prints at an really low resolution. but, print with Safari can print as usual.

How can I print normally? Do you have any knowledge on the matter.

Many thanks,

Apparently I created created a Mozilla Support using my personal email address as some point in time (probably a long time ago). To clarify, it's not the email attached to this account. I had to create this as a temp account due to the issues with my primary account.

Best I can piece it together, I then later created an account for "Firefox Sync" under a different email address, then changed my Firefox Sync account email to my previous email address. Here's the chronology:

2015? Created Mozilla Support account with personal_email@outlook.com 2016? Created Firefox Sync account with work_email@mywork.com 2020? Firefox Sync, Mozilla Support all merge into "Firefox Account" 2021: Before leaving my employer, I switch my "Firefox Account" email from work_email@mywork.com => personal_email@outlook.com. Firefox Account doesn't complain, all goes well and personal email works fine as my primary Firefox Account identity. 2021: I attempt to log into Mozilla Support using my newly merged "Firefox Account" and receive the following red toast error messages: Error 1: "The email used with this Firefox Account is already linked to another profile" Error 2: "This account is not active. Please contact an administrator if you believe this is an error"

Hopefully that all makes sense, any ideas who to fix this? Assuming it's impossible to log in with my old/original Mozilla Support account, so I appear to be at an impasse.

I read that Firefox will using the Snap version by default on Ubuntu 21.10 and beyond. Will the non-Snap version still be available in lets say Ubuntu 22.04 and beyond? The reason I ask is because I use Firejail to sandbox Firefox and Firejail doesn't work with Snaps and yes I know that Snaps and Flatpacks both sandbox apps but I prefer Firejail because of the Private Home profile (nothing is saved in this profile settings, bookmarks, add-ons etc) its way more secure than the sandbox offered by a Snap.

In the attached image, the code is indented with 4 spaces, but it displays as if it's 2 spaces because the spaces are thinner than the other characters. In the second image, I've highlighted a single space, which is half the width of the character above it. I also downloaded the latest nightly and this still happens with it.

Github's current `font-family` rule: `ui-monospace,SFMono-Regular,SF Mono,Menlo,Consolas,Liberation Mono,monospace`

In devtools, firefox underlines `Liberation Mono` as the active font-family, but I uninstalled that from my system and it switched to `monospace` (Noto Sans Mono) with the same issue. If I change it to remove the `Consolas,Liberation Mono,` it gets fixed, but when `Liberation Mono` is installed+highlighted and I only remove `Consolas,` it doesn't work til I remove `Liberation Mono,` as well. Note that both `Consolas` and `Liberation Mono` resolve to "Noto Sans Mono" "Regular" in fc-match, which is my default monospace font.

When I start up firefox I usually select restore previous session to get back all my tabs, but sometimes I click on the wrong button and accidentally close out firefox. When I open firefox back up and try to restore the previous session, it restores to the session where I misclicked and only brings up the homepage. Is there a way to restore to the session before that with all my tabs, without having to go into browser history and bringing them up one by one manually?

Some of the answers to similar questions involve going to "%appdata%\mozilla\firefox\profiles\sessionstore-backups", but all of the files in that folder are either from several months ago or from after I messed up and lost my session.

Why did Mozilla change the "Clear Recent History" dialogue window so that it NO LONGER has the "hotspot" that the cursor automatically goes to to make it quicker and easier to "Clear All History" after SETTING the choices to "Everything" and choose all of the options? The cursor USED TO be able to be set to go to the "OK" button automatically, now it does not. Why and why not? AND the dialogue window has been ENLARGED and SET in a CENTERED LOCATION onscreen. Why? Is it POSSIBLE to correct this oversight and allow for the cursor to go to the "OK" button automatically again? It seems that Windows 10 has presented additional challenges in maintaining a pleasant experience for MOST services/apps, and I hate that MS does that at every "update".

If there is NO way to correct/re-establish these functions to Firefox, Thank You for your time and efforts to keep Mozilla users/friends safe and happy, and stay safe and well,
