Why does the current version of firefox have a download manager window open very time a new download is initiated? This is a nuisance. It is typical for me to download many small files in a session and having that window open every time, and having to click it away is a nuisance. Is there a way to disable this feature I haven't found?

Some websites load greyed out. I've just bought a Mac Mini running Monterey (12.3.1) and downloaded Firefox, which says it is up to date with version 91.9. Soem websites, when accessed therough Google search, grey out as if wanting me to accept or reject cookies, but no such buttons show. Examples - Search gresham, offered gresham college in dropdown, click onit and it's greyed out and inactive. Example - search canon support, offered Canon Product Support in Google listing, click on this main heading, and webpage comes up greyed out. Both sites work satisfactorily in Safari. (I've resolved my problem with Canon). I'll be glad if you can help - I'd prefer to go back to Firefox by default.

I saw where this was a problem with Netflix, Amazon Video and other sites with Fire Fox and that one person even used professional version and still had the same problem.

What I cannot see is where he got the video codex that allow Netflix to work on Fire Fox version 88, let alone this newest version that Mozilla has created.

How can I stop Firefox from asking for the master password for bookmarks on start up? Often I don't need to use a password. It is very annoying and I think it is dangerous because then if I step away anyone has the use of my passwords. Firefox used to only ask when you needed to use a password to login to a site. I think this change is dangerous.

I'm running Firefox 100.0 (64 bit) on windows 10 pro 21H2. I've been using Firefox to access Flightradar24 to view real time flight across the globe. All of a sudden today the map doesn't appear any more . I think they use Google maps and overlay their info.

The maps show properly in MS EDGE and Google Chrome.

So, for a few months now, the preview panel in Firefox has been popping up with every successful download of a file from online. Its a bit inconvenient because anytime it pops up, it basically tabs me off a page and interrupts my writing or the like. This wasn't an issue last year when after successful downloads, the downloads icon in the toolbar just lights up blue to signify a successful download. The preview panel popping up every time Firefox successfully downloads something (due to reasons, I download files in bulk from multiple sources) is incredibly irritating. The problem goes away when I just remove the download icon/panel from the toolbar entirely. I just wanna know WHY this bizarre phenomenon happens.

Hello!

I always use private browsing so I thought that my history was totally not being saved, but discovered recently that when I started to type within the search field, that many of my past searches were listed in the search field with the type highlighted in purple. I had to manually go in and delete all of these past searches. I don't want any search history to be saved. Is there a setting in preferences that I'm somehow missing? Why is Firefox saving these past searches if I have it set to Always Use Private Browsing?

Thank you!

Hi. On dictionary.com when I type in a word in the search bar and press enter, it works fine, but when I am on a definition page on dictionary.com (not the homepage) and I type a word in the search bar and press enter, it does not work. The page does not respond.

Also when I am on biblehub.com and I type in a reference (like Genesis 1:1) in the search bar at the top and press enter, I get directed to a blank page: https://biblemenus.com/topmain/send.php?q=undefined

In the search bar at the top of biblehub.com I must click the magnifying glass icon in order for it to work, which is annoying.

Note that a while ago (I don´t know how long ago) these things used to work correctly. I don´t know whether a Firefox update caused the problem or whether it was a change to the coding on the webpages. I am on the latest version of Firefox. Neither of these problems happen on Chrome.

Let me know what can be done to fix it. Thank you.
