Dropa;

I can download an E-Trade brokerage statement from my DELL LAPTOP, Windows 10 and Firefox ((identical to my Desktop) whereby I can view the pages of the statement , however, from my DESKTOP I cannot download an E=Trade brokerage statement for me to view the pages of the statement.

Below is the address or link for downloading an E=Trade brokerage statement, on my screen, from my DELL LAPTOP, whereby the pages of the statement appear, This is the identical link / address that I copied from my DESKTOP, however the statement does not appear: "Download failed"

https://edoc.etrade.com/e/t/onlinedocs/doc?docType=stmt&docId=0

How may I correct not being able to download and E-Trade statement, to view on the screen (after which downloading to a file) on my DESKTOP ???

I am honestly in chock with Firefox's terrible decision of not providing any option for the user to delete downloaded files.

It is honestly amazing that they came up with such a terrible decision. My downloads folder is a complete mess now and there seems to be no way to fix this.

I don't understand why not just provide an option for the user to only open files. People should be able to choose their settings.

I refereed to this previous post and the solution there didn't work: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370409. By setting browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to false.

Is there actually no way to only open files now?

I want to install a copy of the current version of Firefox on a Win 10 computer that already has an ESR copy of Firefox running on it, without overwriting any of the existing Firefox configurations, that can be run independently of the first install.

How do I do this?

New dual boot Linux configuration and all new install. Ubuntu 22.04 (all updates). Firefox 105.0.1. I am trying to create a new profile on a shared (ext4) partition that can be accessed from either boot side. I have tried over a dozen different configurations. I can create profiles anywhere on my local disk (also ext4). I cannot create a profile on the shared partition. Error msg: "Profile couldn’t be created. Probably the chosen folder isn’t writable." I have checked/verified permissions/directories/access/etc, checked for typos, tried using links or direct access. I tried copying a profile I created on the local disk onto the shared partition and just point to that. Notably when I choose the directory from the partition in the FF profile tool, FF switches the path to the /run/user/(...) tmpfs instead of using the actual directory as chosen. I verified access via this path as well. I even tried modifying the profiles.ini file to the "normal" location. Sorry for the long explanation. I have been configuring new Linux installs since the 90's. I'm stuck. Help??

Whenever i restart Firefox, my download history gets deleted, but the downloaded files in the file manager don't. I have tried creating new profiles and altering my settings, nothing really works, its the same for all the files, and for all the new profiles i create too. Is there a permanent solution?

For some reason my default PDF reader keeps being changed to MS Office instead of just opening them in the browser as I directed. I keep having to change the setting in Firefox every couple of weeks (general > applications > PDF). What's causing this?

Firefox Won't Open

I'm trying to download Firefox, but it simply refuses to open. I've only gotten it to open twice, when I downloaded it from the Microsoft Store (which still doesn't work unless I've absolutely cleared my computer of any trace of the Firefox I download from there), but when I tried to open it back up again after turning my laptop off/putting it to sleep, it didn't open.

  I install it from this website otherwise.  I'm on Windows 10 with a laptop, and I've already checked that my storage isn't the issue (I've had it bug apps out on me one too many times).  I've uninstalled everything my computer would tell me exists in relation to Firefox before reinstalling it, but it still doesn't open.
  And when I say it doesn't open, I don't mean it loads slowly or doesn't pull any website up.  I mean for half a second, I see the outline of a window (sometimes windowed, sometimes not, usually with the minimize, windowed, and x on it but not 100% of the time), occasionally a black inside, before it's gone.  I check my running apps and it's not there.  I've tried running it as Admin, making it my default browser, trying to find if there's a 'fix' option for it (as far as I'm tracking, there isn't), running compatibility troubleshooting, restarting my computer, refreshing when it asks me to try, reinstalling when that doesn't work, and properly more I'm forgetting about.
  I really like Firefox, genuinely, I do, I used to use it on an old computer, but I can't open it and therefore can't use it.
  When I opened it off the Microsoft Store, I did sync my Chrome information to it, but I believe I deleted that (I may be mistaken, though), and even if that did pose a problem it still didn't work when I originally tried to download it off of here.  Sorry for the long(?) question, I'm just trying to cover every detail I can think to cover.
  (Warning, I'm a little bad with following detailed instructions, so if any help could be simplified if possible that would help me a lot, thank you for any help anyone can provide!)

Hi, I had to recover my computer so I was re-downloading firefox and it looked as though I was missing some bookmarks so I clicked import -> restore and restored from today, only now I only have 11 bookmarks left out of thousands and I can't figure out how or where to restore them. I don't have any backup info on this computer since I had to wipe it completely but now it seems as though whatever sync I used has been overwritten or disrupted. My bookmarks are really important to me and I really need them back, is there anything I can do to restore them?
