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.

Sometime within the last couple of weeks I have noticed that elements of YouTube's UI have vanished. Things like the red bar along the bottom of video thumbnails that indicate a video already watched, the video duration on the bottom right of the thumbnails, as well as the 'vertical three dots' ••• menu button underneath thumbnails that contained the "not interested" option no longer appear on the YouTube main page. The three dots menu still exists in the side bar list of recommended videos while actually watching a video, so it's only affecting the main page.

I have confirmed that those UI elements work in a different browser and, bizarrely, they seem to work when I use a Firefox private window. This led me to believe that one of my extensions was causing the issue, but even disabling all of them did not bring the missing UI element back in normal browser windows. I have also tried clearing all of my cache, cookies, and site data to no avail.

I am on Windows 10 Pro (Version 20H2 OS Build 19042.746) with an up-to-date Firefox (Version 84.0.2 64-bit). Current extensions: BetterTTV, FrankerFaceZ, uBlock Origin, and Facebook Container.

Attached image shows the lack of the three dots button on the top normal Firefox window and the presence of that button on the bottom private window.

I would appreciate any suggestions as to what may be causing this and possible solutions. Thanks for your time.

I decided to install firefox nightly on my windows 10 pro / 64-bit edition laptop early this morning because I already have it installed on two different computers with the exact same operating system installed. On those computers when I pin a desired site they remain there until I decide to manually unpin them. That's not the case with my installation here on my laptop, after having pinned a site the proper way & then going to a different site and upon returning to the original new tab page where I had previously pinned a desired site it no longer appears...why ? Thanks, David

Hello,

After the latest updates, whenever I attempt to navigate to someone's instagram account from a hyperlink or even typing it directly into the browser bar, I get the picture below 9 out of 10 times. I imagine it has something to do with cookies and how Firefox has changed their default settings or something, but I'd rather not have to delete my browing history, data and specific Instagram cookies every time I want to search instagram pages. Is this happening to anyone else?

Hi,

I want to save a website that featured our dog on a page. The website is a help-site for veterinary expense that will probably close the page featuring our animal, as our pet didn't make it. If it matters, the website is Waggle.com.

I used File > Save Page As to open the dialog box with the option to save to the desktop. I note it did so with the extension .html. At the bottom of the dialog box was Format, I choose the default save as Website complete. I tried to open it and saw a instant of the webpage picture. On the bottom left-hand corner several pieces of dialog were running in rapid succession, one of them contained the words "Hand shake", but most were probably computerize gibberish, at least to me. The bottom left hand corner went blank and the entire tab was left blank--empty, the brief picture disappeared. Google didn't offer any help with this.

Can I save this page to view as a memory, or is this essentially gone to a novice like me?

Firefox 84.0.1, OS X 10.13.6, 2009 iMac desktop.

Thanks,

John Roehling

youtube presents errors during loading, leaving the left side panel and the youtube login menu empty, strangely when opening firefox for the first time after turning on the computer it seems to load normally but when browsing or updating the problem is present.

I don't use third-party antivirus, only the one that comes in windows 10. I suspect the firewall and windows defender itself.

I've been like this for two months. I tried updating windows 10, no changes. update firefox, no changes. reset firefox, no changes. disable firefox add-ons, no changes. reinstall firefox, no changes. private window, unchanged.

any ideas?

Hello, I have a problem with the screen share pop up that appears when a website tries to access the screen. When I try to share the entire screen on Google Meet, as soon as I click Share screen > Full screen, the button grays out and nothing is shared. The pop up that allows you to select the screen to share never opens.

The only way to reset Meet's "Share screen" button is by exiting and joining the Google Meet room again. I've checked that meet.google.com's screen permission is set to "Always ask" and not "Blocked". How can I fix this problem?

I have been invited to renew the Norton protection on my desktop computer in 5 days. The increase in the cost is approximately 20% on last year's subscription with the advice that it will treble at the following renewal. This has made me wonder whether, or to what degree, the protection provided by Norton Lifelock may be unnecessary due to my using Firefox for my browsing.

I have Ublock, Enhancer For Youtube, Facebook Container & Ghoshtery icons on my toolbar.

I am not very computer literate, so if anyone is able to suggest an alternative way of protecting my computer, please take this into consideration.

I accept that due to my limited knowledge of computers some people may on balance think that it is best that I renew with Norton rather than risk compromising my computer security due to my lack of computer expertise - and if that is what people think it would still be good to receive the reassurance that I am probably already using the best product for me.

Last year I let the subsription lapse rather than pay at the invited amount that I think was over £60. A few days later I received another email inviting me to subscribe at circa £20.

Thank you.

I am continuing to have issues going to this web site. www.goldtonemusicgroup.com/goldtone. Works great on chrome but firefox fails miserably. The page needs to be downsized and when you click on a link it may open it but it may be behind it but I am never able to get to it. I think possibly the last update something must have messed up. I used to be able to load it but not anymore. I have to use another browser to work with this web site. Other web sites seem to be ok. Thanks for any info.

OS: Windows 10-64 Home or Windows 10-64 Pro Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.685) with all current updates Firefox: 84.0.2 (64-bit)


For about a week now a few websites are taking a long time to load on my 4 PCs (examples: ebay.com, walmart.com, pch.com). If I click the link on the search page it takes almost 30 sec to load, right click and open in a new tab same time, and open a new tab and type or paste address the same amount of time. Most other website open almost immediately.

The issue does not resolve in safe-mode or if I manually disable add-ons. I'm using the default theme.

All websites load without issue on Chrome and Edge.
