Hi,

Till now, in the settings for pdf files i had opted to save files.

So when downloading a PDF file I will be asked where to save the file. If I was opening a URL that ends with .pdf it would simply open in firefox.

However recently this has changed. If I choose save file for a pdf it does not open any URLs that end with .pdf and ask where to save the files.

If I choose open with firefox - the URLs ending with .pdf opens in firefox, but if I want to download a pdf, I am not asked where to save it, it automatically downloads the file and then opens it in a new tab in firefox. My download settings are set to "always ask where to save files."

Earlier I could open URLs in firefox and download files to my preferred destination. Now I can only do one of these.

In other browsers, .pdf links still open and if I want to download pdf I am asked where to save the file. But in firefox this issue has come up in the last few weeks.

I had trouble opening the browser because a window kept popping up whenever i clicked on the icon saying that the browser crashed and i could either restart firefox or exit it. When i pressed either of those buttons for about 3 hours with no results, I decided to uninstall firefox and install it again. I tried it from chrome but it kept saying my connection was not private and therefore i couldn't download firefox. I tried installing opera and trying downloading firefox from there with the same results. I don't know what to do anymore. Please help as I would really like access to my firefox account again

I updated version 106 to 106.1 which wiped out 106 and left a message saying 106.1 was not compatible. There was now indication that this was likely to happen. Fortunately I had a second version of 106 on my desktop (running W10). When I tried to install a second Firefox, all that happened was that it upgraded my 106 to 106.1, completely wiping out all my contacts on the old site. If this is irredeemable, I think it best to give up using Firefox asmy main web browser and use something more reliable, such as protomail

As of this morning, I can't open my normal Outlook email account in Firefox. After clearing my cookies in Privacy and Security settings this morning, it made me re-log in to Microsoft. After logging in, it went to an Outlook site that had no emails in my inbox (see image). When I click on the Mail tab on the side bar, Microsoft login pops back up and says my account no longer exists (see 2nd image). How do I get Outlook back through Firefox? I can click on the side link to get it on Google, but I don't want to access my account that way. Thank you!
