Firefox download location error

I have been facing this problem for quite sometimes. I have set the download location of Firefox browser to the Download folder of my laptop /home/inferni/Downloads. But sometimes when I download any file the file gets downloaded to a different location of my laptop /tmp/mozilla_inferni0/<filename> . This gets really annoying when I have to work on the file and it is nowhere to be found in the download location of my laptop and then I have to open the browser and track the file via the download section.

I tried to reset the download location and even reinstalled the browser but of no use. Earlier I used to work on ubuntu 18.04 LTS and then I switched to Fedora 32 but still the problem persists.

Thank you!

Whenever I go to a web page that has twitter or instagram content, I have to right click and open the specific link in a new tab in order to see it, which is a pain in the butt.

I've opened the same web pages in Opera or Vivaldi, and there I can see the embedded content. Why can't I see embedded content like this in Firefox?

I have tried to clear my cache from my computer multiple times by using the Mozilla instructions and the 670 cache is still there. It is not clearing. I feel that I should delete Mozilla and reinstall. Will this work or is there a better way to clear cache other than using the Mozilla worthless instructions that do not work? Can some one help me with this? Contacting Mozilla is impossible thus far. I cannot even add the images from my desktop.

My name is Dianne Andreotta. I got this message when I tried opening my e-mail: Firefox does not trust Xfinityconnect.email.comcast.net because its certificate issuer is unknown, the certificate is self-signed, or the server is not sending the correct intermediate certificates. Below that is the error code: SEC_ERROR-UNKNOWN-ISSUER. Can you please help me fix this so I can get into my e-mails? Thank you in advance. My e-mail is: [email]

I've recently encountered a problem that apparently appeared in the past for other users but not for me. It happens in youtube and not always. Back button plays the same video instead of previous one.

(Most but not all) steps to repro: 1. Open a video on youtube. 2. Play some of it then go to another video on that page. 3. Play a bit then depress browser back button.

Expected outcome: A. Browser displays previous address of video in the address bar. B. Browser displays the page (video) corresponding to previous address.

Actual outcome: A. Browser displays previous address of video in the address bar. B. Browser displays the same page (video), i.e. of current address. C. The "history" stack in the back button is updated as if it had worked.

I can no longer stream CBS All Access. They are saying that I have some kind of ad blocking problem in my software therefore they cannot play movies with their ads. Firefox recently did a download on Nov. 18. It was 78.5 Oesr. Could that be the problem? Does 78.5 Oesr have some kind of an ad blocker? If so, how can I uninstall it?

Firefox unexpectedly quit, open tabs lost when MacBook Pro's charge died. After charging, did restart since Menu button to access History was missing (only menu bar visible). It returned, but unable to restore closed tabs (as I've done in the past) - History shows it to be "empty." I've spent hours searching Mozilla Support...can anyone please help? These 8-10 tabs must be somewhere!
