I have my favorite applications set as defaults in the autoplay extensions options. I have "do this every time" checked in the dialog box that pops up every time I try to open a file. It doesn't matter what the file extension is. PDF, MP4, and JPG files don't automatically open.

I posted a similar question before when I thought this only applied to MP4 files. Since then, I've noticed it applies to all files.

I would really appreciate some help getting this to work again. Jim Birke

I was including code in javascript for asking the user about the location and the prompt is coming for asking the location and if now I console log with navigator.permission.query({name:geolocation}) then in state i am getting "prompt" which is fine but after allowing or denying i am not getting "allowed" or "denied" its still "prompt" but this things work fine in chrome. so is there any other object which is storing this state? for Mozilla or just Mozilla doesn't support this?

I've noticed for about 2 weeks now, my google street view is not working like it used to. It some times will not respond and when it does respond it is very slow. I didn't used to have this problem, so maybe a new Firefox update or some other issue is causing then problem? How can I view my browser settings to see if some thing there is causing the problem? Hopefully, someone can help and cure the problem. Thanks,

I have set the Downloads preference to "Always ask you where to save files".

When I download a file (I usually download PDF files), Firefox presents the file picker dialog with some directory pre-selected.

I would expect Firefox to pre-select the directory where I saved my most recent file.

However, Firefox often switches between several of my recent directory, seemingly absolutely arbitrarily. It would present the most recent directory e.g. 5 times in a row then suddenly switch to some other directory on its own.

This is EXTREMELY annoying and bad, as it is easy to overlook the changed directory and save the file in an unintended directory. It happened several times to me.

This behavior so destructive and annoying that I would consider it a bug that should get fixed (other browsers do not do this!). However if it is for some strange reason considered to be a feature, how can it turned off and how can Firefox be made to ALWAYS present the most recent download directory?

Is it possible to save anything Firefox already downloaded? Currently all the “save” buttons seem to mean “download”; even the “view source” button makes additional request which may fail or even redirect (so e.g. clicking that on http://a.b/c may led one to view-source:http://d.e/f if the former page became a redirect in the meantime)

Within the last few weeks, sometimes when I try to use Firefox, I'm told to reconnect to Firefox. I reconnect by entering my account password, etc., but after I've thus reconnected, my previously saved passwords are gone. I've tried to import them from another browser, but it doesn't import them. The only way that I can proceed is to manually enter my passwords to other sites. Everything is good for a few days, but eventually, I'm asked to reconnect to Firefox, and when I do, my saved passwords are gone. This is so frustrating that I'm about to stop using Firefox. Is there a way to fix this problem?

Thanks.

I have Mozilla VPN installed on my PC. I just began new home internet service with T-Mobile. The internet connection is great with the VPN off. As soon as I turn the VPN on, all internet functionality is lost until I turn the VPN off again. I want to use the VPN.

Are there settings in my computer I need to change? Or with the VPN?

How do I setup WebVR in Firefox for Oculus Rift with a Radeon Graphics card?

Only info I can find about this is where they explain how to make it work for Oculus Rift with Nvidia's Graphics card. I can't find any mention of AMD's stuff. I have AMD RX 5700.

One of those setup instructions says to download and install Firefox, allow unknown sources in Oculus Home (which I have done). And then it says this: "For PCs (especially laptops) using Nvidia chipsets, there are several methods of enabling the discrete GPU. One way is from the NVIDIA Control Panel: Load 3D Settings > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings tab, and select Mozilla Firefox (firefox.exe) as the program to customize, and select “High-performance NVIDIA processor" as the preferred graphics processor. "

What if I have AMD Graphics? Am I unable to use a VR browser until I get an nvidia graphics card? Why is there no info about this anywhere????

Dear All

Sorry to pose this question once more but the provided solutions in the FAQ will not fix my problem. I am working on a Mac. Since yesterday I have troubles with most pages on firefox as they all come in a black background/white (or different color) font design.

I have already checked the preferences - these are as they should be (white background). I have also gone to "customize" and chosen "light". No change.

What else could I try? It started yesterday without a concious attempt on my side to change something. I could have hitten some wrong buttom but I would not know.

Many thx already for whovever kind soul is going to help me.

Kind regards Antoinette
