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/… (read more)

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?

For years I have been using Firefox. If I clicked on a hyperlink in any of my programs, Outlook messages, websites etc, Firefox opened a new tab. That behaviour has suddenly stopped for websites including this one occasionally. It seems to still work for Outlook. Has Firefox changed its policy?

The advice on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295 is to edit browser.link.open_newwindow (3) 1:current tab; 2:new window; 3:new tab; But that is already set to 3.

What other settings might work? And why has this been changed?

Open links in new tab setting does not working, even in safe mode

'Open links in new tab' and 'When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately' settings do not work, even in safe mode. I'm on Version 96.0.2.

Changing these settings manually also does not solve the issue, tabs still open in the current window:

browser.search.openintab and make sure its value is set to true.

browser.urlbar.openintab and browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs set to true.

Only thing that works for this function is CTRL + Click. Shouldn't these settings work if applied?

Thanks.

I installed Nightly Firefox 74.0a1 and I am still able to sideload extension. But based on this article https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2019/10/31/firefox-to-discontinue-sideloaded-extensions/, sideloading will not be supported in Firefox 74. I tested both of sideloading methods (https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/publish/distribute-sideloading/?utm_source=blog.mozilla.org&utm_medium=post&utm_campaign=2019-sideloaded-discontinued) and the extension was able to be sideloaded successfully in both ways. Does anyone know the reason?

How to adjust the duration for displaying push-messages in Firefox?

So I'm trying to make Firefox's push-notifications be displayed for a longer duration than the usual; I'm hoping to get them to stay visible for several minutes, instead of a few seconds. Perhaps the is a solution that doesn't require us to mess with the responsible API by ourselves? Another matter, also concerning those push-notifications: may it be possible to force them to always appear for a specific website, independently of the status of the Firefox-window? In our current case, they only seem to appear if it's minimized. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I see that at some point, probably the latest Firefox update, nearly all addons are disabled, and have no ability to re enable. Just as an example, "Downthemall". The "..." menu only has remove or report. Same for Adblock plus, back is close, dozens of others. Go to the page, eg https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/downthemall/ and install turns into "enable" which does nothing as well.

I'm the one who said I would send you a copy of a problem, but it won't paste into your program. Sometimes I use the Snipping Tool hit copy and paste it wherever I want it to go, but it did not want to be pasted into your question box. I'll try this: "Applications" Choose how Firefox handles the files you download from the web or the applications you use while browsing. CONTENT TYPE Portable Document Format (PDF)PNG filemailtoJPG fileircsirciCalendar Filehpsupportassistantext+treestyletab" THEN I'M SUPPOSED TO TELL YOU UNDER THE HEADLINE: ACTION: Search file types or applications. Then a long list of file types are already listed, INTERNET EXPLORER or ALWAYS ASK or USE OUTLOOK, and on and on. I have no idea what I'm supposed to chose, there's options for photos, do I have to go to Options each time I have a photo or a document and change the action, since it only allows for one selection.
