I’m clicking on a link that links to a markdown file ending in the extension .md. As I know that this is just a plain text file, I would like to open it in a new tab as plain text. However, Firefox opens a download prompt. How can I teach Firefox to display the file as text?

I want to change the location of the temporary files corresponding to the web pages I visit. It seems to be called the cache.

Right now those files are saved in

   C:\Users\userid\AppData\Local\Temp\

but my C drive is a SSD and I don't want them to be there.

Note: In about:config, I created a string

   browser.cache.disk.parent_directory

and set its value to

   D:\Temp\Firefox_temp\

but to no avail: the temporary HTML pages are still created in C:\Users\userid\AppData\Local\Temp\.

Hi all -

Instead of firing up FF and then clicking on the toolbar icon - "Open a Private Browsing Window" every time, is there a way to create a Desktop Shortcut to click on which brings up FF in Private Browsing mode?

Perhaps I can place it in my quick launch toolbar.

Also -

Is it possible to set a default "homepage" for Private Browsing mode?

Any help always appreciated. Thanks.

Hi All

Question for you. When I try and download some types of files I get a pop up that asks me if I want to open the file or save the file. Most the time I want to save the file but it gets rather annoying having to then go into my downloads folder and move the file where I wanted to download it to.

Is there a way to manually set the download option to let me select the download location? Not talking a permanent change like this folder to that as each download is different and I might want the file stored elsewhere. So is there a way to set it so it asks me where I want the file saved rather then defaulted to the download folder in Win 10?

Thanks Dave

Does the Network Monitoring component of the Firefox Developer Tools have a way to preserve its log upon navigation (which would otherwise be cleared), similar to the Chrome or Safari Developer Tools "Preserve log upon navigation" button?

I've tried checking the "Enable persistent logs" option for the Web Console in settings, but it does not appear to affect the Network Monitoring tab. I also didn't see any bugs filed for it, so I just wanted to make sure I wasn't overlooking something obvious.

Thanks, Kevin

I'd like it if Firefox would automatically convert webp images to jpg or png files instead of the opposite... stop trying to save png or jpg files as webp... and stop serving me webp images when it is optional. I understand there are websites that ONLY display webp format images, but I am also aware that jpg and png files exist on many of these websites as well. I do not want to disable the ability to display webp in the browser, but I want to turn off whatever option is currently turned on.

I'd like to go back to being able to right click, Save Image As > and end up saving a png or jpg. There have been several websites over the last few weeks that I have visited, and even if the image in the URL is named jpg or png, Firefox tries to save it as a webp. This is complicating my image saving process. I am using the Add-on named "Save webP as PNG or JPEG" which works, but slows down my saving process considerably. The Add-on does not remember the last folder I saved an image to, and adds several additional clicks to what used to be a simple process.

Is there a way in about:config to prevent Firefox from putting webp as the default file format in the Save Image As dialog box?

Suggesting that I use Internet Explorer or Edge is crazy. I'm not changing browsers.

You can demo this annoyance by trying to save this image, which is obviously supposed to be a jpg: https://media.entertainmentearth.com/assets/images/7c23e8c9a6014c57aa8f5d3e281b3834lg.jpg

Hi all,

(Firefox 56.0 64-bit, MacOS 10.11.6)

Keyboard shortcuts do not work in Firefox on my Mac, whereas they do in all other apps.

For instance, I can copy with command-c then paste with command-v in every app... except Firefox, which makes me use the mouse instead.

This is incredibly annoying, and is the same on my work machine and the one at home (both the same versions of FF and MacOS).

Any idea what's happening, and how I can make shortcuts work in FF?

Thanks,

Miche

I've gotten so used to the "Press Tab to Search" functionality of Chrome that it always seems like an additional step in Firefox to go to the actual website and begin searching from that page's search box.

For example, whether it's YouTube, Amazon, Wikipedia, or any other site with its own search function, all I have to do is start typing "yout," Chrome will automatically fill it out to youtube.com with an option to press Tab to automatically start searching youtube from the address bar. (See attached screenshots).

Is there any way to replicate this functionality in Firefox?

Thanks.

Given that v. 47.0.1 is the last one to be supported on 10.6.8, the answer given here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-osx#firefox:mac:fx45

doesn't make it clear whether if it is preferable, IN TERMS OF BEST POSSIBLE FUNCTIONALITY (not necessarily security), to use v. 48 and later ones, or v. 45.x.x.ESR until it runs out in 2017.

This in particular: "Note: Some Firefox features might not be available on ESR." has caught my attention. Is there a way to know which are those features that are not available?

Thanks,
