Upon trying to download a .story file (Articulate Storyline 360) from a server, the .story file is automatically converted by Firefox to .zip.

In essence a .story file is a .zip file but I don't want this conversion to happen as it is annoying, confusing and adds additional work to my flow.

Does anyone know of a way to turn this conversion off? I assume it is a security feature. This does not happen in Chrome/Safari or FF for Windows

Here is a sample file: https://youtrack.articulate.com/api/files/55-36851?sign=MTYwODQ4NzUwMDAwMHwyMC0yODV8NTUtMzY4NTF8TnVnZjFLRFdMWmFDazRQaGxQa1RtNUJpekhI%0D%0ARU1KWWxWM1Z1OXRPVzMtbw0K%0D%0A&updated=1573143765061

Thanks

If I log into gitlab and look at a merge request, all I see is the initial description, but not any comments. Additionally if I click on the "changes" tab on the site, I get nothing. I also see spinning circles next to "Assignee" and "Reviewer" etc. I'm running v84.0 on a mac. Any suggestions for how I can debug this further? Everything works in safari.

Firefox recently changed how search engine keywords work in the address bar. From the "What's New" tab in my browser:

"Now, when you type a search engine or specific site into the address bar, a blue shortcut will appear in the search selections beneath. Select that shortcut to complete your search directly from the address bar."

Is there any way to undo this and go back to how this worked before, without those blue shortcuts?

I get quite a few errors like these when I use Firefox, and I couldn't find anything about them on the web. If anyone knows what this means and if it can be fixed by me, or if it is a developer issue, please let me know.

Hi All,

I am planning to get a new computer and I am wondering if I can use Sync to migrate all my numerous bookmarks and passwords over to the new PC?

Or do I need to export all this info into a file or files and then load that on my computer?

Also if I can use Sync to move all my bookmarks and passwords over... can I store this information on the hard drive of the new pc or is it stored on the cloud?

Hello!

After updating to the most recent version the shortcut (CTRL+SHIFT+B) for the bookmark manager has changed to CTRL+SHIFT+O . WHY?!? after years and years now that? the old one you could manage with one hand...especially annoying if you use the bookmark manager often and used to open it with one hand while not having to let go off the mouse with the other hand. and second... is there a way to customize shortcuts etc? in the old firefox there was apparently, but that is now gone?!? or is there a way with the help of about:config?

with regards

Hello I have been a Firefoxan since the year 2004. I really admired what Mozilla did to compete in the browser market. Recently, Firefox not longer accepted to "Submit feedback" via the browser menu. I wanted to complain about a couple of things but it took a lot of time for me to reach here. Believe me Mozilla, this is not a good time to stop listening to users and refuse to receive complains.

It is high time for me to move to another browser after 16 years.

All of a sudden pressing Ctrl-Shift-B no longer opens my Bookmarks window (Library), but instead closes my bookmarks toolbar!

Is there a way to revert this shortcut back to what it's been for the longest time?

I know the "new" combination is Ctrl-Shift-O but I've used the old one so often (maybe 50 times a day), that this change is nerve-racking.

Thanks.

When my Firefox restarted after a Windows reboot it only restored the tabs in one window, but when I shut it down I had 2 windows open. I can't see how to restore the second window, other than going through my history. Having restored 1 window, restore session is not in the drop down menu.
