I'm on Mac. When I open a PDF in Firefox I get a print button and a download button. The download button does not offer a Save As option. It simply uses the name used in the browser - often this is a number or day or some other appellation that is less useful than allowing me to rename the PDF myself. Chrome offer to rename the file before saving but I hate Chrome.

Maybe I'm overlooking something?

Edited to correct some history -- so the followng transcript may be a bit out of synch -- I will state my current question below.

Two things happened at the same time -- I uninstalled Adobe Flash, and a Windows Update ran. I didn't notice the Windows update, so I blamed the wrong thing, the Flash uninstall. It was WIndows.

The Windows update caused all my bookmarks and history (and most cookies) to disappear. I'm on Firefox 68.10.0esr

I found my Profiles at C:\Users\[me]\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles but I don't understand what's in there enough to fish the bookmarks out, and I don't see anything that looks like "15 backups" promised by the Mozilla help pages.

Where are my Bookmark backups?

I was wondering if their was a way to switch the find bar bar back to the old way of searching. The way it is now is annoying. When I use find it's usually the same search across multiple tabs. Now I have to open the find in each tab and if I change the find in one tab it doesn't change across the other find bars so I now have to change each individually. Thanks.

I'm buying a new win 10 laptop soon. Is it possible to copy the the settings from a virtual windows 10 64 bit I just set up. It is easy to export the bookmarks as html but could i set up the desktop/add ons etc. I have used classic shell and winaero tweak to make it look like win 7. I don't like 10 and would be buying 7 if i could.

Could i copy the profile onto the laptop. I think the laptop is 64 bit, would it matter if it wasn't

This PC is win 7 64 bit desktop and i know the firefox 77.01 is out of date. I don't like the changes

I work on computers without admin rights, and i can't install add-ons,

how to make a true portable Firefox without using registry at all

I really don't understand that a free software allows such a blocking, even if chrome doesn't pose any problem with add-ons.

is there a way to lanuch firefox with a option to not use registry or to redirect registry in file or in a not locked custom registry like

hkey_local_machine/software/policies/Mozilla_portable/Firefox

or something like that ?

when creating firefox account, i entered 0 as my age, because i saw no reason for ffox to ask for this private info. after that, firefox told me i am too young to have an account and there was no way to go back!

just another horrible act on ffox part that does not surprise me at all after seeing so many :(

if this happens to you, here is the solution: find the firefox cookies and delete them (see image)
