I frequently download excel worksheet files in the format of .xlsx The extension is not found in the Firefox options-files and applications-applications content type. It is not an option to choose this to save the file in a particular location--see attached screen shot. If it is under another name please let me know. There is an option to download excel worksheet files--only 97-2003, xlsx is an Excel 2016 worksheet. Why isnt this updated with the latest version of Firefox: 85.0.2 which I am using? Even if I select 'use excel 2016 (default)'--screen shot 2/ it does not have the option to remember where to save the file--only to open with or save, like the option for other files.--screenshot 3.

I just want it to always save to desktop.

firefox on windows - disable "visit this site" as (first) option in urlbar

Is there a way to customize the urlbar and disable the annoying "visit this site" and "search with"? Everytime when typing for an address, the incomplete "visit this site… (read more)

Is there a way to customize the urlbar and disable the annoying "visit this site" and "search with"? Everytime when typing for an address, the incomplete "visit this site" leads to a problem. May any expert from Mozilla Firefox explain that? Any modification like those should be user-selectable. The use must be as much professional as possible, even though this browser is intended for all targets. This way, you're only annoying users and leading them to use other browsers like Chrome (crap) and Explorer (crap). Keep in mind that many others are developing new browsers, live Avast, and when people leaves, it will be difficult for you for them to come back. Use common sense. Thanks.

Hello dear Nerds

With the last update the Bookmarks have a wide distance when listed. Too wide! I have to scroll down endlessly to find things. Before they were neatly narrow and you could see twice as much. Kindly repair this next time please. Or can I do this? Best Ursula Zürich

Since sometime in August 2021, I suspect after an update, occasionally when I launch Firefox it reports that it was unable to restore a previous session. I do not have the option to open previous sessions selected. On other occasions it starts properly with a blank page as it is configured to do.

Am I missing a setting?

It is not a major problem, I can simply enter a URL or search string in the address bar and it works properly for the rest of the session.

It is happening both on my Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows 10 Pro PCs running the 64-bit version of Firefox.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.

On Friday,30th. i've installed "MajorAV". They promise within 24 hrs u'll get the Installation Key but no 4 days later there is still no key been sended. Next problem: "MajorAV" can not be reached, there is no possibility to write a (short) message: what's happening with my key I payed for ! It would be helpfully if i could send just this short msg and askin "What's on with my keyI've been paying for !" Always if I try to open "MajorAV" a page will open with "Invalid Page" or "Page cannot be opened" or others. I tried the so called "Support@majorav.com.com." Do you think this "MajorAV" could be a fake ?? (Question by Rüdiger Dresler, <syasgaard@gmx.de>)

After your latest update you broke the bookmark star function. This is key to my role in my job and if it is not fixed in a reasonable amount of time then I will have to switch back to Chrome. The instructions say to right click the 3 dots but it does not offer up anything when done. Add to address bar is the only thing that shows up when you do right click on the 3 dots instead of add to address bar like the article says. Please fix this ASAP!!!!

I can't find anything about a compromised Firefox update while using the browser when you go to help and let the browser update itself. It seems you've been hacked because I can't otherwise explain the firefox background update 308046BoAF4A39CB, which is been detected by my systems. I obviously have more information about this if you like, but I see nowhere how to report this properly. This is the first time this has happened to me, at least as far as I know and so far I've only detected the Tr.Gen threat on my Windows computers. I would like an adequate response from Mozilla on how this could happen and what the repercussions are plus how to avoid this in the future. I've been using the Firefox browser on all my systems with various operating systems and would prefer to keep using it, but not if your own updating process is comprimised. I also think it's idiotic that I can't upload a bigger screenshot than 1024 kb because my very relevant picture is 3084 kb in size.

Sincerely,


J.L
