See dialog box screen print below. The .cpp file is not a GIT file. A .cpp file is a C++ program source file from Microsoft Visual Studio, and I should be able to open the file with Visual Studio 2019 (current version of Visual Studio on my PC). But misclassifying the .ccp file as GIT does not give me the option of opening the file with Visual Studio 2019. How do I change the classification of .cpp files from GIT to C++ (I'm on the newest version of Firefox...all prior versions worked correctly) ?

Other than what i described above, i have submitted questions, and now FF is blinking ! This is a very unstable release!. Mozilla needs to retract this crap and work on a real browser update. I was prompted to update to 102, then after experiencing tons of problems, another update, to 102.1, which achieved....nothing at all.

What is going on with mozilla? this is crazy!

Hi, this is a minor problem and more a quality-of-life thing, as there is no hard crash or bug per se. Context: I need to print a LOT of things every month for the job, so I download a LOT of PDFs.

Problem: When downloading a PDF, if I open it via the dropdown menu in the menubar, it opens, but immediately unfocuses Firefox. That's it. Why the unfocusing? Lol.

Limits: If I mark PDFs to open automatically (in the options) instead of downloading, then it opens fine and no loss of focus. Same thing if I open from a folder, it's set to open in Firefox and it does so, with no loss of focus. As far as I can tell, the issue appears only when opening from the download button/icon/dropdown menu from the menubar.

Suggestion 1) Adding a "Download AND Open in Firefox" option in the settings would be my ultimate greatest option but.... maybe not the best for cluttering millions of people's browser options. It's just what "I" want to do ;)

Suggestion 2) Trace where it loses focus and re-focus / prevent loss of focus when opening from the menu.

Hello,

I have many and long lists of bookmarks saved in the "Bookmarks Toolbar". The problem is that when I hover my mouse within the lists and sublists, the new rectangular form of a certain list (within another list) places over the old one in a way that I cannot distinguish the beginning/end of each one.

Can that be fixed or is there another theme that will help me see clearly the boundaries of each bookmark list/sublist?

Thank you!

Hi,

I'm looking to sync my Firefox account between my desktop and a laptop. I went to the menu, clicked on the sign in button next to "sync and save data", and landed on the account sign in page. However, after I entered my email address for my account, the page hasn't moved on to ask for my password. The blue bar underneath it is currently doing the circling thing and I don't understand why. I can sign into Firefox on its own, but not to sync.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

  • I am including a screen shot to help you. [Note] Although, I'm technically capable, I do not know all things IT or computers. Sometimes one needs to ask for help.
  • Does Firefox not have a direct telephone number for Technical support? Sometimes it's much easier to talk to someone for help than doing all this texting / writing. I feel like major corporations (like Google) are unreachable, if you need to talk to a human being.

When I tried processing an NZB today, it just saved the file with no prompts...previously, I had it set up to ask what to use to open (Newsbin Pro or Forte Agent). When I went into the Settings for Applications, yes, it simply had "save file" selected. I changed it to "always ask" and tried again. So annoyance #1; it reset my preferences...WHY? That's happened before with updates, and really SHOULDN'T

This time, it asked, but there was no program listed as an option, and "Save File" button was selected. I clicked on "Open With" and "Browse" and selected Newsbin Pro. The next one I tried, it brought up the window, but, AGAIN, no program name was there...I had to browse to select Newsbin Pro AGAIN. Annoyance #2; it will NOT save the program.

I AM able to select either "use Forte Agent" or "use Newsbin Pro" and it will open the NZB automagically in the selected program, but I want the ability to choose, with the way it worked before, where the last program I used is the default. WHY did that change?

Separate but related question; even when I select "Open With", it STILL downloads the file and saves it in My Downloads, which it didn't used to do before; if I selected "Open With" it would simply open the attachment in the program, and not save it to the folder. Why did THAT change?

Running Windows 10, Firefox 102.0.1 (64 bit).

For no reason I can name, Firefox's window sizing has gone bonkers.

I'm using Firefox 101.0.1 with Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise. I have two Firefox windows open.

When I unlock the computer after a period of non-use, the Firefox task bar icon has two white bars at the edge, indicating that two windows are open, but the windows not visible. Quitting and restarting Firefox does not help.

To recover the first window I must float the mouse over the task bar icon, opening thumbnails of the windows, then right click the first thumbnail and select Maximize. This makes the maximized window appear. Then I can drag the window away from the edge of the screen, reducing its size. After that it behaves normally until the computer is locked and unlocked; then the process repeats.

I can't recover the second window at all. Its thumbnail is empty except for a tiny rectangle in the upper left corner, presumably representing a tiny window. When I right click the thumbnail it doesn't open a menu; it just displays a blue rectangle as high as a normal window's title bar and about four times wider than high. Presumably this is what's left of the window. It has no title, no minimize/maximize/close buttons, and no system menu icon. Trying to change its size by dragging its edges has no effect. Nor does trying to maximize it by pushing it up to the top edge of the desktop.

What can I do to make Firefox behave normally? How can I prevent this from happening again?

Hello, Every since the last 2 updates. When I drag and drop a web site from browser into a folder, the ico that is attached to the website are super super tiny now. They were not before. I have been forced to make Icon (ico) myself from the website Logo (if they can be found) I have attached a picture. The bottom Link is how it now comes out from Firefox (Mozilla browser) since the last 2 upgrades. The top one with the folder "new folder" is how it SHOULD be, but I had to make this ico myself and exchange it out. - this happens to EVERY file I drag and drop. The second photo - the one with family group etc. The top link one is how always use to be the bottom link is how it now comes out. - See how small it has become.

How can I put it back to the top one. - only way I have been to fix this is to exchange it with my own (made) icon - and with this FK (Familykin) one, I can not find a logo clipart to replace it. (which I have been using lots of , as I do my geneology of famous people). Please help me laurie O (Sweden), ps, I prefer english.

Get the error - "Wrong passcode; enter the passcode" again while trying to login to SAP SuccessFactors provisioning when I key in passcode generated by SAP 2 factor authenticator app on my phone. Do not face this problem with Chrome or Edge.

Interestingly, I do not get the same error when I use FireFox in a new In private window. It then allows me to login using same passcode. So I do not face the issue in FireFox using In Private Window.
