Is Firefox aware that when authoring e-mail in Microsoft Word, then copying them into the BT e-mail, all the control characters are transferred with it the ASCII text. I have checked with other people, and it is not just my machine. I now have to copy the e-mail into notepad first then copy to email, to just get the ASCII characters in the email.

Some .exe setup files won't open when downloaded by Firefox but work fine when grabbed by Edge

Hello! I'm on Windows 11 and when trying to update QBittorrent, if I download the last setup.exe from it's official source with Firefox, the file won't open. No error message, no crash, nothing. No amount of double click or "run as admin" will get it to budge. I've had the problem with the last three versions of QBittorrent.

However, when I download the same .exe from the same website with Microsoft Edge, it runs like a charm and I'm able to update QBittorent.

What's weird is that it's not even consistent; I always get that bug with QBittorrent but the other .exe files I downloaded run just fine. I only use Windows Defender for malware protection and it doesn't see the QBittorrent file as a menace. I tried downloading the file to another location than my desktop but the issue persists.

Is there something I can do to fix this?

Have a nice day!

Hello, every once in a while Firefox on my Win 10 PC resets bookmarks, logins and saved tabs to ones that I used several weeks/months ago. I also remember that it once switched back to a newer instance a few days after switching to and older one. When I try to open the app, it also creates a new icon on my taskbar. This has happened around 4-5 times in the last year. Does any one have an idea what the problem might be? Thanks in advance!

How can I disable it? I can't take a screen shot because if I place my mouse on it, it skips to another place on my screen.

Greetings. Lately, I am unable to log-in to some websites. This has started recently, about a few short weeks ago. The Social Security Administration and Electronic Design (magazine) are just a couple of example. I don't get much information from either of the sites. Electronic Design just replies with unable to log-in The SSA site replies with:

"Bad Request Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit."

I cleared the cache, and reinstalled the latest version, Firefox 120.0.1, 64 I am on Windows 10 Pro 64, latest update AMD Ryzen 7 8-core 16GB RAM 1TB Samsung m.2 2280 system disk

Note: I have no issue logging in to the SSA website using MS Edge, but I'd rather use Firefox, which has been my default browser since Adam & Eve hit the earth! Your assistance would be appreciated. Thank you. Sam H. Electrical Engineer (248)677-1039
