We have our downloads set to a network location, and ask to save in location. We have needed to apply the fix I found in a forum by going to about:config, browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel and change value from true to false.

However, when even going to a PDF on the internet, it is automatically saving to the network location. Can this be changed?

Thank you! Nicole

I want to install an older version of WaterFox. (I have my reasons for doing so). I can download and install an older version, but investigating the version after the install on Windows 7 reveals that it is NOT the version I downloaded. But is instead the newest version available. I have tried several uninstallers and deleted profiles and strings in the registry but nothing seems to help installing an older version. Can anyone offer some advice?

Firefox 109 is horrible and I am trying to revert to 108. I have the "Old Firefox Data" file, but have no idea how to get ALL that info back into 108. I am so very upset and frustrated right now! So much wasted time. I cannot believe Mozilla did this to us with no warning!!!!!!!! I have seen some articles on how to get the info back, but I don't really understand them. I am relatively computer-savvy, but I definitely do not understand how all this works. Some "Firefox for Dummies" at this point would be greatly appreciated. I am on a PC using Windows 10 professional 64-bit with automatic updates so it's current.

Pretty much the title. On the first launch after update, the firefox logo on my taskbar turns into a blank page icon (with the top right corner folded down) and then after I close the program there is no icon for it on my taskbar.

It only takes a few seconds to add it back to the taskbar, but it's been happening for a few months now, and with these frequent updates it's gotten pretty frustrating.

Hi. Today I reinstalled the system on my computer. I redownloaded Mozilla and wanted to log in to restore my bookmarks. I forgot my password. I used the button that I forgot my password. I used my email and activation link for a new password. After logging back into Mozilla, my bookmarks are gone. Nothing like creating a new account. It is very important for me to recover my data.

Recently Firefox is randomly closing automatically after downloading a file from Yahoo business mail. This happens only with Yahoo business mail and not with other websites. So, when downloading a file from other websites (gmail, etc.) everything is O.K. This happened recently when Yahoo updated its software. Also, happens only with Firefox

I'm searching for a method to download video files that are formatted as a .mov files without changing the file format. Firefox browser 109.0 running on a Windows 10 PC modifies the files from .mov to .mp4 when saving the files on the PC from a cloud file storage website. Other browsers such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge handle the file download without changing the file extension from .mov to .mp4. How to I alter the settings within FireFox to maintain the original .mov file extension?

I just downloaded the new Mac Ventura update, and when I opened Firefox all my previous tabs opened up, but my Toolbar completely disappeared, as in there is an empty space for it, and they show when I click on Bookmarks, but not on the actual browser window. The same thing happened with my Add-on extensions, all disappeared, and they're not even showing in my library. When I tried to download them again online, every single one gave me a red error message "An unexpected error occurred during installation." Please advise what's going on and/or how I can fix this to get my normal browser back. Thanks

Hello everyone, Does someone know how to install Firefox on Ubuntu Touch phone?

I did install "Ubuntu touch" on my smartphone few weeks ago.

But without my favorite Firefox Navigator, this is useless for me !

Even a older version of Firefox will be fine. All i need for now, is a Sync of my configuration (bookmarks and Passwords Manager). Firefox should have app in Openstore for Ubuntu touch phones as its opensource and promotes security.

For the last week or two I have had an issue with Firefox closing my email (yahoo business mail) tab automatically, every time I download a file from an email.

After opening emial I click to download the file, i have the settings set to ask where I want it saved, and then either while I'm selecting the destination and labeling it, or right after the tab automatically closes. It happens both ways which suggests to me it's occurring after a specified amount of time, not based on completion of an action. And it's happening every time.

Any idea how to stop this?

How does one migrate Firefox bookmarks and passwords from an old computer to a new computer?

There are four computers involved in this shuffle. Two new, one being retired, and one being repurposed. The only thing we haven't been able to figure out, is how to migrate Firefox's information from one computer to another one.

And, we've been working on this since Christmas. Edge, Brave, and Chrome took minutes. Combined.

But, transferring the information on Firefox has been impossible. Yes, I've read the help topics. No, they were not helpful. Firefox will not accept either the backup or export files from the old Firefox across multiple computers.

Yes, I have Sync. And, no, that hasn't worked either.

So, what is the next step?
