When I download a file before I even have a chance to save or open the file Firefox downloads the file and puts it on my desktop. I have to look at lots of .pdf files and this a bit annoying as I have to keep deleting all the files I dont want. The dialog box opens and I always choose open rather than save but Firefox has already saved a copy to my desktop. How can I stop this autosave please ? Cheers.

When I start to type a reply to a Facebook post, the page scrolls down so that the line I am typing disappears one line below the bottom of the screen. I have to scroll down to see what I'm typing. Also, it jumps down the same way whenever I hit the backspace key to edit what I'm typing.

I discovered a previous (archived) post on this forum that suggested using "about.config" and making sure that the value setting for browser.backspace_action is equal to 2. But that didn't change the annoying behavior. Is there any other value I should try? It's not clear what the number means.

Nor did setting browser.backspace to true (or to false) seem to help with the unwanted jumping upon use of the backspace key.

This only seems to happen with Facebook, but it's quite annoying.

For over a decade I've used FF, and when I download things (99% of the time from Yahoo) I set FF to "always ask" what to do with downloads. Suddenly that changed and it started downloading everything automatically to the Download Folder.

I went to options and changed everything back to "always ask."

FF does always ask... but... it ALSO still auto downloads to the Downloads Folder now.

And I can't figure out how to stop that.

Any help is appreciated.

Yum SSL Connection Problem

I am attempting a yum EOL upgrade on a 5 year old Centos 6.5 server. I have performed the same upgrade procedure on 4 other Centos 6.5 servers without any problems. "yum" is the Centos utility used to download and install system packages from Centos repositories. This is a Catch 22. Since yum on this server is after End-Of-Life for the operating system, yum is not working on this server. Since the current yum installation on this server is not working, I am not able to use yum to download any Centos 6.5 system packages. There are yum servers that are made available to support yum after the operating system End-Of-Life. This requires manually modifying the yum configuration files in yum.repos.d to point to the Centos 6.5 End-Of-Life yum repositories. I have made this change on a number of Centos 6.5 servers without any problems, but one very important server is failing to connect to the Centos 6.5 End-Of-Life repository. Since yum is not working on this server, I can not upgrade Firefox. When I attempt to manually upgrade Firefox with a Firefox RPM, the upgrade fails because of a large number of library dependencies. This makes upgrading Firefox on the server manually almost impossible. A simple solution would be to perform a full operating system upgrade on the computer, but that would wipe out all the files on the computer. My only option is to fix the yum EOL SSL connection problem with the version of Firefox installed on this computer. The SSL error is:

https://vault.centos.org/6.10/os/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] problem making ssl connection Trying other mirror. Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: base. Please verify its path and try again

I have googled this error and attempted several suggested solutions, but none have worked. I went into about.config, and made the following changes:

In about:config, I tried setting:

security.tls.version.max;4

security.ssl3.rsa_aes_128_sha;false security.ssl3.rsa_aes_256_sha;false security.ssl3.rsa_des_ede3_sha;false

These changes are not helping. I did not make these changes on other Firefox installations for this yum EOL upgrade, and they are working fine.

I do not know what is unique about this particular server that is causing the SSL Connection problem with:

https://vault.centos.org/6.10/os/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml

On all other servers, I can successfully connect with that server.

Again the yum connection error is:

https://vault.centos.org/6.10/os/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] problem making ssl connection Trying other mirror. Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: base. Please verify its path and try again

If I attempt to connect to this server using Firefox on this server, the connection fails with the error:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to vault.centos.org. Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s). (Error code: ssl_error_no_cypher_overlap)

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem. Alternatively, use the command found in the help menu to report this broken site.

I would appreciate any suggestions that you could make to help with these connection problems. I do not know what is unique about this particular Centos 6.5 server configuration that could be causing this problem. Your help with this problem would be appreciated.

In the past week or so something seems to have changed with Firefox whereby any time I go to open a file Firefox is first saving the file to the Downloads folder on my computer before opening. This never used to happen before as I was always given the option to just open the file or save it.

I have tried adjusting the settings and I have got Firefox to ask about opening the files, but it is still saving them to the Downloads folder automatically.

Can someone help with what changed and how I can revert it back to the how it performed a few weeks ago?

Hello! Just installed Ubuntu 20.04.4 on my laptop and now find that I'm not able to watch some YouTube videos on Firefox 97. It seems mainly just live streams that I can't watch. When I go to one it shows "Your browser can't play this video...Learn more" in the video window. Clicking Learn More takes me to a page that doesn't explain what the problem is. Any idea what the fix might be? The same videos play just fine on other devices on my network. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Fission locks up my PC to the point where nothing works. Even keystrokes are simply ignored. Looking at the Task Manager, I find a huge number of Firefox processes running with 100% CPU usage. If I wait until CPU usage goes down, the PC starts working again. The number of processes shown is significantly more than the actual number of Firefox copies running. Note that these are individual copies because I do not use tabs.

With Fission disabled, PC lockup is no longer a problem. The number of processes shown more closely matches the actual number of Firefox copies running, and the CPU no longer gets smacked with 100% usage.
