This is just me or Firefox doesn't support drag and drop images to the desktop and download them, and I also can't drag and drop to Adobe Illustrator to edit images and what only comes out is a link, if in Chrome it's not like that

Anyway, my OS is Mac, is it because I'm a Mac so I can't?

I've installed two versions of Firefox in one Mac, 68.8 esr and 80.0.1. Though I want 68.8 to work as default browser, when I clicked URL on other apps, new 80.0.1 opened it always. One preference screen, both installations say that "Firefox is currently your default browser". No UI to set one as default.

Anyway to specify it?

Running current updated WIN10. After updating Firefox, it will not launch. I get multiple messages, saying that Firefox is already running, close the current Firefox. I have removed all mozilla apps for a fresh install. Yet it continues to do the same. I am forced to use Edge.

Anyone experiencing the same, and any answers?

So, I have been looking for lots of solutions but none of them worked. I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 and want to install and update Firefox Dev automatically. I tried some ways:

  • By package manager:

First, I uninstalled the default Firefox, removed its ppa repo then added Firefox Dev ppa and installed. Opened up and it was still normal Firefox.

  • By downloading .deb file from Mozilla:

I could install by this way but every time has an update, Firefox will notify me "Firefox can't udpate to the latest version. Download a fresh copy of Firefox". I also have Chrome to be installed via .deb, it can update automatically. Why Firefox can't? It's very annoying that every time I open Firefox, it pops the notification up. It's impossible that every time Firefox has an update (which occurs regularly!) I have to go to homepage, download then install it manually. I can write a script to update Firefox but I want an official support from Mozilla.

While downloading applications and such through mozilla, the files downloaded are simply named "download" and the type of file is "file" instead of "application" as it was supposed to be. Changing the format of the file manually does solve the problem but I want to know why is this happening as I didn't face this problem before.

Hy, I've just instal firefox on my IMAC 27 Midd2011 on High Sierra after a re install of the system. Since I can't do anything. Firefox start after a long time and then nothing happen. Even if I click on a menu, nothing happens. I tried the different procedures with the help and reinstall it after reboot but nothing changes; I always have an "empty" window. If you have another idea, I am interested. Thank you so much

Sometimes when I click a link (in an email) to download a document, a completely unnecessary blank tab opens immediately before the save dialog. A new blank tab opens for each document I download. There used to be a preference to stop that happening. The closest I can find is dom.targetBlankNoOpener.enabled but I can't find any intelligible information about that.

- on my Macbook Air i've just changed from using Safari to Firefox. I synchronized Firefox on all my devices (IPhone, IPad). However, using firefox, passwords from ICloud (the server) are not automatically enetered if I visit a website. Since apple generated these passwords it's quite a challange to enter them all by hand. There must be a more efficient solution. In short: how can i allow Firefox to use the passwords stored in my account on ICloud? - how do I transfer my favorites from safari in Firefox (the import tool only gives the option to import bookmarks).

I do hope someone can help me; many thanx in advance, anyway.

Last night I had to re-install Firefox because I couldn't connect with internet

Since last night and up to now I've tried multiple solutions, however, the re-installed Firefox is not working as previously (just yesterday afternoon) - for example, on the left all my screens are partly hidden - also desktop doesn't show up, then search is not responding correctly and adding to the taskbar is practically as good as out of order. Unfortunately I've also detected that the re-installment come with demand of using - bing - which I do not use, as I'm very familiar with Firefox & Google which I've been using at least for over a decade an are very Happy with. However - bing - kept popping up, until finally today/afternoon the facility to dismiss - bing - suddenly & fanally was available so it got by-passed, although as much as possible, as it rears its presence still somehow every now & then. On top of all this, I also don't have Desktop

I just got a new Mac. I've had Firefox on my old Mac for years.

During installation on the new machine, I must have made a mistake/been too hasty.

In the first instance, I dragged the Firefox icon into my Apps folder, but since it didn't appear in my list of applications, I tried to run it from the .dmg package directly.

Since then, I realised I'm not supposed to do this. So I've deleted everything Firefox from my computer and restarted it several times.

However, each time I now re-download the Firefox installer and go through the steps to instal it, the same thing happens: it only ever runs from the .dmg package. Whenever I delete the .dmg from my computer Firefox stops running.

Can someone help? Thank you!
