Hello Mozilla Support Team,

Since one of the last updates firefox Download Setting seems not work properly...

Into Settings > Files and Applications > Downlods > Save files to option is ALWAYS on, even when "Aways ask you where to save files" option box is checked. When I open a PDF in view mode with Firefox, it automatically download it to the location described into "Save Files to"..in my case Desktop. It seems that the "Save Files to" option doesn't gray out when "Always ask..." option box is checked.

Do you have any idea why I can't chose just one of the two options?

Thanks for you help...

Alex

I'm running Mac OS 12.6.6 and Firefox 114.0.1. When I try to log into my Google account, I get the message, "This browser or app may not be secure." I'm running the current version. Javascript is enabled. I've cleared my caches and data. I can log in to Google on other browsers, such as Safari. • This happened after I set up my browser to use Bing Chat, which required that I clear my cache and data.

What Search popup taskbar in Firefox? Like Clrt+F “find in page” is appear!. It’s a virus spam. Or what is it problem Bug?

Now Version 114 on Windows 11 64

When I print the keyboard to find in a box or typing wrong, then search popup taskbar in Firefox is appear! Why? it's like click the menu bar F10 button "edit" followed by "find in page".? What is it? According to the sample image. Sometimes there is a lot of code for writing a website! It is a virus spam. Or what is it?

There was a user asking this problem. Which is like my problem as follows

“Whenever using Firefox, I keep getting a pop-up box on the left side of the bottom of the browser which seems to search the webpage for whatever is in the box. This happens if the cursor is not exactly in a specific search box or designated area on the screen. I can reproduce the problem by clicking on the page (just the page, not a box or input area) then typing. It may be a function but has become so overwhelmingly annoying that I find it necessary to find a way to deactivate it. If I click something else like another window and don't click the mouse exactly on a specific search box or input area when I go back to the page, it inputs the text I am typing down in this box. I don't like this; I don't want this. Please help me rid the browser of this menace. I put an image of the problem below and circled the offensive box. Thanks for any help given. I did try to search for this issue to see if there was already a solution but could not find one, hence posting this question. I just found out this is the same box that pops up when you click the menu bar button "edit" followed by "find in page". Don't know why in the world this thing is popping up by itself when it is neither needed or desired.”

I use firefox More than 100 versions and no problem But my problem would be like above. Thank you for helping each other.

Hi, The DM has an annoying popup that only appears on the sports page ( which is basically the only page I actually read, the rest of the comic I just skim ). I've searched the web for a solution but to no avail, hence my asking here. I have the popup blocker ticked, but this annoyance just keeps on.

How can this be allowed to happen? This goes against everything private browsing is supposed to be.

I open a private window' log in to gmail, reddit, amazon, any site, etc; i close private browsing window entirely - removed from taskbar; i reopen private browsing and all my sessions are still signed in.

The fact that this is happening is negligent to the point of criminality. WHAT is the solution and why is this being allowed to occur?

I have tried updating Firefox a number of times to 115.0.3 and each time I have had to roll my PC back to a pre-update state because I get a warning from MS Defender that I have a Trojan. What do I do in order to update the program without this very disconcerting warning?

Thanks in advance.

DIRECTLY after 114.0.1 update, I get a CONSTANT UNENDING PROMPT telling me all about firefox , ON EACH AND EVERY SEARCH, I am here to find out how to remove this intentionally annoying, "thing" from MY PC(of course Mozilla couldn't be bothered to tell us they were installing a continuous advertisement for google, and FORCE installing it as search engine). I want this endless advertisement removed, post haste.

I created an account today and let Firefox generate a password, clicked save and everything seemed normal. but when i went to login on another devise and pulled up the password i find is my SSN.

I am baffled how this happened. Why is it not designed it automatically save the created password when creating the password? Why and How did it find and save my SSN? I don't understand how the computer messed that up, I created and saved the password then I gave my information including my SSN to finish creating my account. Then the last step to create the account was to download the app and login on my phone. So I go to my Logins and passwords and find the password it saved was my SSN not the random password it created the account with.

I don't know what to do, probably have to start over if it cannot be recovered. But I want to complain about about Firefox picking out my SSN. Failing to save the password is one thing, But replacing it with my SSN is wrong. And i do not think I made a mistake here when all I did was click two buttons, create password and save password. they popped up one after the other I clicked them both in seconds from one another. My SSN was not on the page at the time, I created and saved the password and gave my SSN in different steps one before the other. I cannot rationalize how this happened.

my email works just fine using Safari so I am at a loss.

I have tried running FF (Firefox) in safe mode, ensuring outlook.live.com is an exception to the pop up window blocker, changed default protections on outlook dot com to none from standard.... Turned off ABP, clearing cache and cookies from within FF.

it may be worth mentioning that I can still browse/access other websites while outlook produces this error, and my network settings within FF are set to use default system settings (no proxy).

I've seen in many places that cmd+` should allow me to switch between windows within an app on Mac. For me, it only works in Safari and other native Mac apps. It does not work in Firefox. I have the latest Mac OS and the latest version of Firefox. Is there a solution to this? I would LOVE for this shortcut to work, since I'm also a Windows user and it's the closest thing to the Windows window-switching shortcut.

I am running Windows 7 (and will not downgrade to one of the newer versions). Firefox has stopped supporting Windows 7 with version 115, which I am currently running. However, I get a pop-up message each time I launch Firefox asking if I want to download the latest version (which cannot be installed).

Is there some way to stop this annoying message from appearing?

Call me old-fashioned, but I miss Netscape...
