Hi Firefox support

I am using Nuance Dragon Professional and trying to install the Dragon extension into Firefox. This is because I am disabled and my hands do not work well See this link https://dnsriacontent.nuance.com/13/setup/ffinstall.html?lang=ENX&browser=firefox

When I hit the install the extension button on the screen nothing happens

I did check to see if this extension was in the Mozilla Firefox extension library and no success

I can make this work with Google Chrome but I would prefer to stick with Firefox Chris Gullett - cg@printstar.biz

I got a new computer so I created an acct and set all my open tabs and history to sync. It wasn't intuitive to my not techie brain, but found out how to open all the tabs on the new computer. However, they don't open in the same order (makes it almost useless when you have a lot of tabs), and the tabs don't have their associated history.

Is there some way to have Firefox open tabs and history in the same state on the new device?

Previously with chrome I had 5 links pinned to the homepage, and that was all that was there. With Firefox, I can't figure out how to disable the history mixed in with the pinned links, or change the number of links displayed. All I can find is changing the number of rows, not columns per row which would at least be good, because I could just set the grid to fill to 1x5, instead of having the current minimum count of 1x8 links.

I recently switched to linux and I cannot find a way to link profiles from my windows install. In an older version I could make a symbolic link in ~/.mozilla/firefox/Profiles to the profiles in /run/media but now profiles are stored in ~/.mozilla/firefox and it doesn't understand my symbolic links, how can I do this?

I got my new Dell laptop and downloaded and installed Firefox on the windows 11 platform. I ran the F secure virus scan and it detected30 Malware files in one of the hidden files. F secure could not remove them so I had to delete the file manually. I like the browser but concerned of receiving malware in a brand new install. I am sending this from my old computer while the new one is downloading other programs.

Hi, I had to recover my computer so I was re-downloading firefox and it looked as though I was missing some bookmarks so I clicked import -> restore and restored from today, only now I only have 11 bookmarks left out of thousands and I can't figure out how or where to restore them. I don't have any backup info on this computer since I had to wipe it completely but now it seems as though whatever sync I used has been overwritten or disrupted. My bookmarks are really important to me and I really need them back, is there anything I can do to restore them?

I am honestly in chock with Firefox's terrible decision of not providing any option for the user to delete downloaded files.

It is honestly amazing that they came up with such a terrible decision. My downloads folder is a complete mess now and there seems to be no way to fix this.

I don't understand why not just provide an option for the user to only open files. People should be able to choose their settings.

I refereed to this previous post and the solution there didn't work: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370409. By setting browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to false.

Is there actually no way to only open files now?

A few weeks ago, every time I downloaded an attachment from Gmail, I would tell Firefox where to put the file, but I would always get an extra copy in my Downloads folder that I would have to delete.

About 4 weeks after that (after a Firefox update, I think), Firefox stopped doing this unwanted behavior.

Now (after a recent update, I think), it started doing it again.

Why is it doing this? How do I get it to stop this unwanted behavior?

Just wanted to say thank you for ruining my day, and my life all together with the new update (which installed itself without me asking) and now everything is gone and i have to memorize what tabs i was working with and open them one by one - moreover, I've disabled all the add-ons that block the ads so it's a very nice experience BESIDE firefox is still crashing. And on a side note, all my settings are gone and I'm trying to get it back to what it was before the update. Thank you.

How to prevent 'opened files' (temporary files) saved in the Downloads folder

The latest version of Firefox is giving me a nightmare. Previously, when I downloaded something, an alert would automatically pop-up asking me whether I want to save the file or just open it. For those files which I only want to open them once, I would click Open. Then, I would either save the file into another format or copy the content to somewhere else and be done with it. Those 'Opened' file were just temp files which would be deleted automatically after some time. But since the previous update of Firefox, the option to 'open downloaded files as temp files' seems to have been completely gone. I've already manually change the settings for all types of files back to 'Always ask' but the files I 'opened once' are no longer just temp files but permanently saved in the Downloads folder. I personally seldom save things in C drive. Today I occasionally opened the Downloads folder and was astonished to see that all the 'temp files' I opened last month are all saved in there. It's very annoying. Why should I even be wasting my time to clear these temp files manually? The only reason I've been using Firefox over Chrome for these many years is because Chrome always forces me to save all the downloaded files to my local drive and doesn't provide me the option to open them as temp files. If Firefox has become just like Chrome, forcing me to save all unwanted files to my local drive, what's the point for me to continue using Firefox?
