I have been using Firefox and it used to ask me if I wanted to save a download or open it. Now, when it is a PDF it automatically downloads. I don't need all of these downloads on my computer. When I go to Options, I have checked the box that says "Always Ask Me Where to Save Files". I only want to open downloads, not save them.

Since my system was getting sluggish I've decided to format everything and reinstall Win 8.1 back with FF32.

I was normally logged in and have stored approx. 100 passwords and bookmarks in that FF32.

After reinstall I've logged in to FF Sync and found an unpleasant surprise: Even though all check boxes are ticked - everything is emply. Nothing is being fetched.

What the hell? I dislike losing everything. I do have backup but not completely up to date.

sigh

On a different computer with Windows 8.1, even going to Options and selecting another URL as home page, Firefox returns to Yahoo. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox from Mozilla website, theoretically not "optimized for Yahoo"... same results each time.

After I upgraded to the latest version of the Firefox the print on most sites I visit became virtually unreadable because the text is so faint. In same cases I have to block the text to be able to read it. It became impossible to use the "Reply" or Compose" in gmail (online) because the default type-size is so small and faint (grey? or light?). I literally have to go to a notepad to compose my message, then block and copy, and finally paste it into the reply window. I played with default colors, etc but nothing seems to fix it. I even used the classic-theme restorer add-on and still no improvement...

Anybody else have this problem? What is the solution?

I cannot restore previous session and tabs. When I use the Open Menu icon in the upper right and click History the option to restore previous session etc. is greyed out. If I open Tools, Options, General and click on When Firefox starts . . . , then select Show my windows and tabs from last time, and click OK, that does not stick.
