I use to click on PDF files and they would open and not download to my download folder. Well now every time i click on a PDF file it downloads it. I have tried every option in settings/general/apps and they still download in a folder. So I thought I would try MS edge and it does the same thing. Is it not the browser and was it in a MS update? It has never done this before. I don't want all these PDF files downloaded!

Is there a pocket-free build of firefox available for download? Before you say, you can just disable it, I already have. In addition to that I've blocked the update/api url as well. I want it removed completely, I strong feel mozilla should make it opt-in or provide a pocket free build.

I was thinking perhaps there is a regulatory constraint on of the builds here that I could install, then change back to english?

https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/79.0/linux-x86_64/

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I'm wanting to upgrade my Mac OS. Will all my Firefox data be retained including my saved sessions? Will opening Firefox have everything just like it was before the update, so that the last current session will open up with all the previously open tabs?

Firefox is ready to go.

Your add-ons and customisations have been removed and your browser settings have been restored to their defaults. If this didn't fix your issue, learn more about what you can do. Restore all windows & tabs Restore only the ones you want

It did this all by itself without me asking it or clicking anything

While cleaning up a family members computer they had several versions of .json files where they had exported their bookmarks out of Fire Fox. I saw a post that the only way to merge book marks is through importing .hml files. Is there a way to convert these .json files to .html so I can make a single merged bookmark list for them?

I recently got a new iMac running Catalina and moved the Firefox profile I had on a hard drive backup to the appropriate folder on the new iMac and assigned that profile to Firefox, which is not using the logins, extensions, or themes recorded in that profile. I had FF import the bookmarks from the backup folder that FF creates and so recovered those. The question is, why is the info in the assigned profile not being used?

FF v. 79 OSX Catalina

I have a problem with the download of updates for Firefox. Normally it worked properly, but I found recently this and have no idea how to change it (and what's the reason).

- The browser is managed by your organization - Very interesting! It's my private laptop. - The administrator has disabled the download of updates.

What's that? It's my laptop and I'm the aministrator. Quiet annoying...

Thanks in advance for advice and support Stephan

PS: of course I have a firewall and Avira Software

Can you please turn OFF the update window that happens every time I launch Firefox now? I do not have rights to update my machine and the updates are handled by corporate IT. It's extremely annoying.

The last Windows 10 update took out Firefox and replaced it with Edge. I went to Firefox's install page and followed the directions to get rid of Edge and replace it with Firefox. Directions wording was somewhat different in Firefox directions in finding things on Edge and bottom line, there was no place offered where I could replace Edge with Firefox.
