I use a lot of excel files with ETM and when I pull a report, I need it to open with excel in a CSV file. That open no longer appears in the setting list.

When I try to open the report, it just takes me to a folder to download the report and then I have to manually open it with excel.

Can that please be fixed. It was working fine and then I noticed my firefox was updated last night, and this morning I can no longer use it correctly.

I used to have prompt every time I would download something... I would like it back, how can I do this? I've already tried to ask Firefox to always ask me where I would like to open my download but when it does I removes the name of my PDF and acts like they are textedit files and now when I download JPGS it wont even give me an option to choose to have Firefox ask me for the file type "JPG". How can I get everything back to the way it used to be before the update version 98.0?

Hi, I have not changed any settings but since a few days ago, any PDF links or downloads are shown on the same tab instead of a new tab. Is there any way to go back to opening in new tabs?

To clarify, for example, I receive a pdf file from web whatsapp, and I open it. Previously, a new tab is created showing the pdf file I received. However, now, the pdf file is shown on the tab where web whatsapp was instead of opening a new tab. I have to click go back one page to navigate back web whatsapp.

Hi

I'm guessing this is because of the latest update to Firefox, but every time a download finishes, the pop-up box for the downloads keeps coming up. I guess this is considered intuitive to let you know a download has finished, but I could do without it. I find it a bit distracting and it gets in the way. Is there a specific option that can disable it in the config?

Thanks

The new Firefox 98 has broken some functionality my company users in our ERP. Instead of passing a file type off to the needed application, it is now downloading it so my users have to then click in the downloads area to execute the call for the report.

Per the release notes, there should be an option to ALWAYS OPEN SIMILAR FILES in the down loads section but its not there on any of our PC's.

Anyone run into this yet?

how could i disble the download bar showing itself automaticly...? it only waste the user time that if the user downloading 1000 up pictures by each click with using mouse....because when a user download 1 picture, he must click on a blank place to ensure not click the wrong place (downloading progress).

I hope if user downloading pictures, the download bar dont disturbing the user each times! It make me crazy

I use KOFAX PDF software as my default viewer and up until recently, when I viewed a PDF using FIREFOX and according to my personal settings, it would open using KOFAX and I could view and then download if i desired. As of recent, without me changing any of my settings, FIREFOX opens the PDF but will download the file every time. I want to be able to view and then download if I so wish, not, view and auto download. I have tried every combination under Settings / Applications. This is a big issue for me as I view multiple PDF's and have to empty my download folder. This was a major factor in me choosing and recommending FIREFOX to friends, family & business associates. As I stated before, this was never an issue until recently.

the new update Version 98.0 (64-bit) now downloads everything I print off. Settings are set to open PDF files in Foxit PhantomPDF 6.2 so I can print them out, I can print but the browser automatically saved files of each one. I print out over 200 pages a day, sure don't need 200 extra files on my computer!

Since the update to FF 98.0 I cannot click on a .zip file & have it open to Windows File Explorer. It only allows me to download & save the .zip file and then extract the files from there. I have to click on dozens of these files per day for my job & would rather not have to save each .zip file & then extract the file contents. In Settings > Applications, .zip files are not on the list of file types or applications. Is there a way to add them to the list? Is there some other work-around? Thank you!

Hi people.

Until yesterday, when I clicked on a .torrent link, it would open the dialog asking me if I want to "open/save", today, it's automatically opening the saving dialog.

Using Win10/FF 98.0.1 and haven't changed anything in either or clicked the "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" option.

I looked into Settings -> General -> Applications, but there's no torrent in the "content type" setting, so how to revert back this behavior?

Thanks in advance.
