When dowloading an AAX type file from Audible, Firefox changes it to MP4 (downloads as AAX with other browsers).

Note, changing the file type after the download fixes the problem. But, is there a way to prevent it from happening in the first place? Also, why changing file type in the first place?

Today using Firefox 93.0 on my Windows 10 home computer I opened the browser to my Audible library on Audible.com and selected a book to download. The browser download window opened with the book file name but the extension wasn't .AAX but had been changed to .MP4. This did not happen when I used Microsoft Edge nor did this happen on my Windows 10 laptop which was still running Firefox 92.0. Once Firefox upgraded to 93.0 on my laptop I now get the same problem as I get on my home computer.

Audible technical support looked into the problem and found that this change wasn't caused by their servers.

I have discovered that if I change the file extension from MP4 to AAX I can load the audible book into iTunes and sync it over to my iPhone which is able to play the file as an audible book. This indicates to me that the actual AAX file was not converted to MP4. For some reason only the file extension was changed.

I wasn't able to find any setting in the Firefox browser that corrected this problem.

I have a local HTML file which executes some js functions to draw svg figure. The browser rendered the HTML well, and then I extracted the svg conent from console using console.log(document.getElementsByTagName('svg')[0].outerHTML) and save as "t.svg". I found there was a slight difference between figure in "t.svg" and the orignal HMTL rendered by browser. But when I redid these in chrome and ms edge, the "t.svg" and the HTML were exactly same.

It is a followup of a previous question and your suggestions did not work. May be I did not explained myself. The issue is that everytime I launch Firefox a "google page" pops up asking me either to accept or to personalize the use of cookies and whatever I choose it is not “memorized” so that the following time I launch firefox it asks again the same question.

For years my firefox browser has had msn as my homepage and it has never changed in how it looks and is layed out. Today it has changed and it is terrible. Using MS Edge it is still the same as always so Firefox must have somehow changed how msn homepage looks. I want the msn homepage on firefox that I am used to and like....NOT the one from today that changed. Please tell me how to get the msn homepage I want back on Firefox. Would it maybe be to install a former version such as v92 of firefox so the msn homepage is how I am used to? Please advise and thanks much.

Hello Firefox support team. When I open a window (application, data folder or whatever) in front of firefox, then the window doesn't disappear properly when I close it. Bits of it remain (see images) and I have to click on the menu bar or outside the firefox window to get rid of them. It's getting a bit annoying - doesn't happen al the time, but regularly on a seemingly random basis. The problem has existed for a while now, since two or three updates ago. Any clues as to what's going on? Thanks,

Using Firefox browser for iMac. Recently (10/10/2021) attempted to download .aax files from Audible.com. Files were unexpectedly converted to .mp4 files, making files unusable by iBooks. Conferred with Audible Tech support. Audible Tech confirmed that .aax files are the proper format and that they did not/do not make any format conversions on their end. Audible Tech then suggested trying download with Safari. Download (of .aax files with Safari) was successful and maintained proper (.aax) format. Audible Tech said that he had not encountered this issue before and that it seemed to him that the Firefox browser may be responsible for the unexpected conversion. In the past I have used Firefox many times to successfully download .aax files from Audible.com, most recent prior to this problem was on (9/11/2021). I am notifying you simply to advise that you may have a programing glitch within the download programing portion of the latest version of Firefox (ver. 93.0 - 64 bit) for iMac(s).

Can you make the address bar not add autocomplete suggestions in the address bar where you're typing, but still put the suggestions dropdown list right below the address bar?

I know you can do a workaround every time you use the address bar but I use address bars dozens or hundreds of times a day and I would like the address bar to work like I want without having to do dozens or hundreds of workarounds a day.

I was using Kesselberg's Conex add-on for years because it most closely approximated the functions of the old Tab Groups in Firefox. It worked great until the latest Firefox update, but now it's broken, and he hasn't updated it since 2019, so I think it's a dead project at this point.

I've tried Simple Tab Groups and found it pretty useless for my purposes. I've been experimenting with Tab Stash and it's a little better, but still really not what I want.

I want something at least similar to Conex: an icon up top that I click to get a dropdown menu of all of the groups that I've set up, maybe with a search box to find tabs that I've forgotten which group they're in.

Does anyone know of anything like this that still works?

Greetings,

I just updated to Firefox 78.15.Oesr and now am unable to reorder my open windows. As a student, I may have several projects open at a given time, and like to have the project I am currently working on, next to the open Firefox window, for quick navigation between the browser and project. This option seems to have been disabled with the update. It is enough of a deal breaker that I may pursue reverting to the previous version of Firefox.

Also, the inability to delete bookmarks, and to close the bookmark window after selecting "show all bookmarks," remains a persistent frustration that I am surprised has not been addressed. With so many browser options available, these subtle annoyances are enough to prompt me to again shop around for alternatives, after being a Firefox devotee for over 10 years.

Thank you for your help, Josh Baker
