When I click the reload button or press CRTL+R, I expect firefox to return to the top of the current page and reload the current page.

But lately (a few months now) firefox does not return to the top of the page, it stays at the position that I'm currently viewing and reloads.

I tried starting firefox in safe mode by holding the shift key, and it still shows the same problem. I even tested this on another computer (not mine) with the same result.

If this is a new feature of firefox, can I turn it off?

thanks

Running Firefox 102.0 in Win 10. When I try to download a PDF file, I get (1) a dialog box saying the download failed, (2) two 0 byte files in the download directory with the name of the PDF file I'm trying to download, and sometimes (3) a PDF file with a filename of 8 random characters that appears to be the file I'm trying to download. How do I fix this?

I can't stand Microsoft Edge. It's a CPU and memory hog. However, I must resort to using it when I watch a video from VUDU on any of my workstations. According to the fine folks at VUDU, Firefox is not supported in HDX or 1080i mode when using the VUDU site. According to the info that shows when you launch VUDU on a Windows device (in this case, Windows 10 or Windows 11) using Firefox, you get a message that the video is only supported in SD or 720 dpi mode. To get anything above SD mode, you have to use Microsoft Edge. Is there a developmental issue preventing such use or is this a limitation forced on Firefox users because Microsoft does want you using anything but Edge?

It's just a bit frustrated to have to use MS Edge instead of my default browser, Firefox. For the record, I just checked to be sure. There's a marked difference in resolution between Firefox and Edge on the same video.

Attempted to login to Canada Revenue Agency and it told me that Java Script had to be activated in the browser. How do I determine if it is activated and how do I activate it if it is not. The strange thing is I was on the site an hour before without any issues so I am at a bit of a loss as to what has happened. It may be an issue with the CRA.

Thanks Doug

As of yesterday I cannot use Firefox on Amazon from my desktop. I can use it from both of my laptops and, on my desktop, I can use Amazon from Google Chrome.

When I try to search products on FF I get a black screen. When I try to access my wish list, I get multiple error messages.

I tried Re-installing FF but the same problem persists. I have not tried uninstalling/reinstalling yet.

I did a full virus scan overnight. No problems were found in the scan.

I noticed during a firmware download with the file extension .DAT that Firefox removed the extension. The file was not recognizable during an attempted firmware upgrade afterward. This is a new issue occurring sometime in the past several months, since last firmware update. Firefox preferences are set to download .DAT files. No other settings are listed for that file extension. I verified the issue points toward Firefox by checking the download with another web browser which completed the download with the extension.

Firefox 102 Renaming .exe files

I've noticed that with Firefox 102 when I download an exe file, in this case Thunderbird Setup 102.0.exe it is renaming it to Thunderbird Setup 102.0.exe.bin.

Why is that happening now? I know the "potential risk" or downloading an .exe file but shouldn't it ask or at least warn you instead of just deciding to rename it

I didn't see a setting to disable this "feature". Is there one?

Thanks

I had to get a new laptop last week and Zendesk is behaving irratically in the latest version of the Firefox browser. It worked fine in Firefox on my old laptop. After logging into Zendesk it does a flickering loop and the page never loads. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I have been working with Zendesk support and they had me create a HAR file to see what was hapening. I also have cleared the cach & cookis as well as removed extensions. And all cookies are enabled. Zendesk is working fine in Chrome but I'd rather have it in the FF browser where most of my cloud-based work applications are.

My laptop is a HP 445 G8 Notebook running Windows 10 Pro 19044.1806

Several FACEBOOK games show OVER MAGNIFIED when going into full screen. Some examples are SPADES PLUS and JUNE's JOURNEY. The problem started about 3 weeks ago. The only "workaround" I can find is to try to hit F11 and / or control - . It might take a dozen or so attempts to finally get it to show correctly. The problem does not exist in OPERA or CHROME. ( These browsers have their own unique problems, such as extreme slow response in Spades Plus ).. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox several times to no avail. I am using a LAPTOP with WIN 7 OS. All has worked well up until about 3 weeks ago.
