Am running FF 91.0 64-bit on Windows 10. Until not very long ago, the pop-up notification of a new release included an option to see what was in it before taking action. Now my only choices are Download or Dismiss. I like to know what I'm getting into before I get into it; how do I do that? Presently I can edit info on my present version (for example) https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/91.0/releasenotes/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-desktop&utm_campaign=about-dialog by changing 91.0 to 91.0.1 - when I know the new version number - but there must be a better way to avoid flying blind.

I'm stuck using microsoft edge and I feel so icky and out of place. All I did was download a video a name brand video editing program from their site, then uninstall it, then use a register cleaner (cc cleaner) to fix registry problems. Now Firefox will open but none of the buttons will work! All functionality gone! Even after cold reboot and reinstall of Firefox!

I used to have an APP that looked like a backward c to sign out. It gives you 3 different time lengths to use. Then it warns that all data will be lost. You press the key at the bottom and signs you out and then immediately right back in. This just disappeared.

Also where are all the apps that were grouped together I think they were under command? I could just click on one (like the printer) and drag it to my task bar. I can't find it either.

Hi,

I often search with the adress bar without thinking, and when searching 'maps' I accidentally hit 'yes' on the little drop down that says 'did you mean...' with the url. Now every time I try to search 'maps' in the address bar unless I specifically press the down key or use @g (or @ddg etc) I am taken to a url I have no use for. How do I disable this default? I spent ages trawling through settings to try to find where to turn this off.

Thank you so much!

Hello, I regularly open pdf files and other documents with local readers/writers by selecting the option "open with". My big issue is that the files are yes opened with the local reader, but they are also automatically downloaded in the "Download" folder.

Before files were stored in a temporary folder, and I would like to continue like that because my "Download" folder is exploding and it's a mess!

Or, at least, there should be an option to select where to download automatically the files when I select the "open with" option. So I can chose a folder that I now is to be trashed.

Thank you!

At work with work with test servers. Sometimes those are using just HTTP, sometimes HTTPS protocol. However, once Firefox sees HTTPS, it does not let to go back to HTTP protocol.

Not sure, why a browser should know better than a user (when typed the whole URL, including HTTP://) to use HTTPS. Also, when the error page ("Unable to connect") comes, there is no option to use HTTP instead.

Why on the address bar, when either Delete key or right-click-delete are used the autofil for that host / domain are not cleared? Why that error page doesn't have a well described (warning the user of the consequences) option to still use HTTP?

Hi,

We use a cloud-based ERP system. To access it, we use a bookmark for users to get to the initial login screen in Firefox. There has been a change in the login screen that will require us to use a different URL. We have about 75 PCs with many having multiple user profiles for Firefox that need the new URL.

I know how to quickly copy and paste the bookmark by remoting into a PC and then doing a copy/paste from the bookmarks toolbar on my PC to the bookmark toolbar on the remote PC.

I could also create a procedure for users to create their own bookmark but I think some users would find that a challenge.

I'd like to make this process more of a silent install but haven't figured out how to manage it.

We're currently all Windows 10 Pro using Firefox v101.0.1 64-bit.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I recall recently discovering an option that allowed me to designate websites that I no longer wanted to see in my search results. I thought this was x-useful as it seems there are a few websites that frequently appeared near the top of the search results that were "come-ons"; that is when you click on the link in the search results, they only offered an option to "sign up" for access. I don't want to see this junk, and I did add one website to the list.

I've got another one I want to add, but I can't find the interface to add this website to the list. I thought it was a DuckDuckGo feature, but I don't see it anywhere! Is this a Firefox feature ? ... or have I lost my mind  :P

Hello. For the past few days, I am unable to access the content of some websites. For example, Reddit seem to load but the page remains blank. This happens on other websites, where I am unable to login although the page displays correctly (an error message appears on one of them: "Please check the consistency of your URL").

This is quite annoying, especially because I cannot find anything related on the web. I use Firefox on POP OS 22.04.

Thanks. Cheers.
