My download library window used to display files well over a year old, everything I have saved since the last time I deleted all browser history. Recently, everything older than six months was no longer displayed. The files are still there, I just have to search for them. Now it no longer shows anything older than 4 months. "Show all history" does not work. Is there a way to restore that list?

In the past few weeks when I click in an Outlook email "click here to view it in a web browser", the page is opened by Internet Explorer. It used to be Firefox. How can I clear out IE? Firefox is listed as the default browser. Interestingly when I posted the question, the contents of this message was deleted and was not sent. Is that MS at work?

Whenever I look in my history and click on a website it immediately moves to the top because Firefox only remembers the most recent visit. I want a proper history that shows all visits with well structured time. How can I do this? Is there any good addon?

Hello good people, This is rather a request for advice than an issue report. I' ve learned about the facebook container add-on and wanted to know if there is a need for it if someone was making sure to exclusively open facebook.com in its own profile. Say you set up a profile(from about:profiles) namely "BIg Brothers" for notorious trackers like google, facebook , twitter etc so they can perpetually track each other with simple rules to observe like : - Never open an external(shared) link - Never access any other website through that profile.

Is there a particular feature the add-on is bringing up that the native interface is missing ? The other reason is add-ons are great but they tend to bloat the system impeding the browsing experience. I am the kind of guy who opens 7 concurrent tabs each running heavy js code so the lighter the better.

Thank you in advance,

Dom

In Options, I have C:\Downloads⁩ as the location that my internet files are downloaded. Instead, they go to a different location, specifically: C:/Users/**/AppData/Local/Temp.

How do I make Firefox download my files to the correct location?

Hello, I personally dislike the new address bar (also known as Megabar), mainly because it is enlarged without any user intervention, even if I only want to open a bookmark without typing anything in there.

Is there a setting in about:config to disable focus in the address bar for new tabs? Thanks.

i have tried every about:config option there is on google and i still can't disable the expanding URL bar (where once you've entered a asearch, heading back to the bar expands a menu on the right side with a privacy icon, a drop down menu, a pocket icon, and the bookmark icon). very irritating.

i have seen options regarding the userChrome file but i'm inexperienced and probably messing something up.

any help would be much appreciated.

I do not use the majority of keyboard controls in Firefox-- only Ctrl+F. Lately, I've noticed that using Ctrl+I in editor windows also pops up the Page Info window, which I have never used on purpose and am perfectly comfortable accessing via Firefox's menubar.

I have been searching for over an hour, and every Firefox add-on that I can find to fix this problem has been removed.

Ideally, I would like to be able to configure all of my keyboard shortcuts, but practically I will settle for being able to disable Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, and Ctrl-U.

Adding New Filetypes to Download List

I am following directions on this page, which is supposed to be applicable to my version Firefox 78.0.1 on my Windows 10 Pro 64 system:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file#w_adding-download-actions

But when I come to the subheading, "Adding Download Actions", it shows a dialog window which is unlike the one I get. Of the two images I've attached, the article shows the larger while I am offered the smaller. The article says the "Do this automatically" checkbox may be disabled, but doesn't mention it being absent: "Is Do this automatically for files like this from now on disabled? This can happen if the website's server incorrectly specifies the Internet Media type of the file. It also can happen if the server assigns "Content-Disposition: attachment" to the file. Could be the case here. Whether it is or not isn't important. What is important, is adding filetypes. I have no qualms with editing the registry if necessary. Can someone help me out with this?

I have two questions:

1st one:

Sadly I didn't know my browser had automatic updates on and now I got updated to 78.0.1. You added this nice feature that allows opening pdf files instead of downloading them or opening them in external software. very good, i needed that sooo many times already when pages forced me to download trash instead of letting me view in browser. My problem is, that I usually need to download files. Still I want to be asked everytime what to do

 -> I want that whenever a download request for pdf happens, the "download file" is selected by default (instead of the "open pdf in browser"). Also I want to be asked so I am afraid firefox won't ask me anymore if I check the "always do this" checkbox. Is there a way to be asked about what to do with the pdf with a different default option than "open in browser"? Or is the checkbox exactly what I need to check? I just don't want to break my browser...
2nd one:

Since personal meetings disappeared we are using WebEx. Until my browser updated whenever I joined the meeting-URL a popup opened that created a "bridge" to the webex app where I would be connected to the room I just opened in browser. Since my browser updated these popups don't come up anymore which makes joining a webex room a ... little bit complicated. The same goes for discord -> before the update discord in browser asked for permission to use my microphone. Now I am not asked anymore if I want to share my mic. Nothing happens and I am muted in discord. Please tell me how to solve this. Thx in advance!

As the title says, every time I press ctrl, the bookmarks sidebar opens. I've checked what my shortkeys are and it shows that the bookmark sidebar should be opened with ctrl+b, but it opens and closes every time I just press ctrl. This makes it impossible to use any other shortkeys and it's driving me insane. Why is it doing this and how do I change it?

Hi,

About 4 to 6 weeks ago I messed up my main/home/Whatever named file:///home/kline/.mozilla/local/hotlist.html <an html file with 2-deep links to other bookmarks>. Upon reboot I must have done *something* that messed up everything. The "3-dot", "pocket", "star" was either moved leftward or vanished ... Now that clever 4-icon { |||\ } that used to bring up whatever I had bookmark was gone.

Can anybody help me?
