When I try to download music I have purchased from Bandcamp (www.bandcamp.com) the file that downloads (regardless of if i choose AAC fomat or FLAC) downloads as a TextEdit file which I can usually expand with StuffItExpander. However this no longer works, yet it works fine on Safari.

URL of such a file is download URL of such a purchase

Bandcamp support are unaware of any issues - I updated to Firefox 75.0.1 with no difference in the outcome.

I have also downloaded and tried a Firefox recommended "Clear Cache" toolbar add-on, to no avail.

If my computer collects more than 4.4 MB of cached data, the overage will clear. It's the 4.4 MB that won't disappear.

I am a long-time Firefox user who always clears cached content and site data prior to closing my browser, and I have never noticed this issue until two or three days ago.

My computer has only one installed plugin, i.e., Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0.

The attached images show my Privacy & Security settings.

Any suggestions? Thanks, in advance.

This mini menu often appears when clicking with the trackpad when I am in middle of editing a video or something. It often interferes with my other operations and if I accidentally choose one of the items in the menus the consequences are bad. Is there an option to disable this very annoying feature?

I am running with ubuntu 18.04.3 and firefox 75

This is strange and i can't figure it out. I will be browsing along and, suddenly, I am in a new window. When this happens the current tab becomes a new window. As an interesting aside I also notice that the firefox icon does not show me that I now have two windows open. My suspicion is that I am pressing a wrong key but I can't seem to be able to do it on purpose so I have no idea what I am doing to cause this, or how to stop it.

thank you...........

With two tabs in use, my fully updated Firefox uses 350 MB of memory or more, about 36% of available memory on this 2013 Windows 10 Pro Dell.

Is this level of memory usage typical, or possibly indicative of a problem?

[Background: My only problem is some web pages taking a long time to load, which could have many possible causes of course. I do employ most of the available security protection in Firefox Options/Privacy and Security, judt use Windows security software for monitoring, show no viruses on Malwarebytes.... I have never before now looked at Task Manager Processes with just a browser running, nothing else. I have checked out the online recommendations.]

Hi,

How can I disable this feature?

I want Firefox to show me suggestions based in my bookmarks or history, instead of websites I've never visited.

For example, in the image attached, I typed "dis" and Firefox suggested me "discordapp.com". I have Discord in my bookmarks, but the URL is "discord.com/login". In this way I can access directly to the login page of Discord. However Firefox is always showing me "discord.com" as first result and it's very annoying.

How can I disable this?

Thank you.

I'm pretty sure I have a Firefox configuration problem. I'm running Firefox version 75.0 64 bit on Windows 10. If I try to watch a 360 degree video on Youtube I see a split screen video (top part is a "front view" and bottom section is a "top view"). The video card is a AMD Radeon 5900. Microsoft Edge displays the video correctly. Chrome also displays the video correctly.

So it seems like the video card and driver are up to the task based on what I see in Edge and Chrome.

Can someone suggest what Firefox config parameters I might look at to solve the issue?

Thanks, Don

When I try to view my synched Android tabs on Firefox desktop, it only lets me "add device," even though my phone is already connected.

I have Firefox 75.0 for my Windows 10 laptop, and Firefox 68.7.0 for my Android phone. Both are synched to my account, and both devices list each other as being synched.

And yet, when I click on "synched tabs" on the desktop, it only ever gives me the "send text so you can install and synch Firefox" option. Out of interest I tried this, and all it did was confirm that I am indeed already synched.

Now I have seen reference on the help pages to Firefox 69 (nice) for Android, but the Play Store doesn't list an upgrade option; aside from that possible issue I've no idea why it isn't working.

Thanks in advance for your help.

It seems the "people" of mozilla have deleted my previous question since the Moderator came out to brow beat and insult me because jscher2000 withheld the data needed and start investigating my use of the browser rather than answer question.

The one and only website that I want as my new tab is a bit laggy and takes a while to load, probably because of CloudFlare.

And I'd like to have a huge page to see all of my bookmarks in, to make it easier to organize my bookmarks. Instead of using the bookmarks sidebar or the Library window.

So I thought why not combine the two things that I want? Make my new tab open up to the Chrome bookmarks page, and then if I want that laggy website it can be one of the top bookmarks listed. Or if I want to organize and see my other bookmarks instead, I can just ignore that top bookmark and focus on the other bookmarks.

Well my New Tab URL won't let me and it is a Firefox restriction so he couldn't add the feature even if he wanted to.

But surely there is a trick or workaround that might not involve extensions?

If so, please let me know.

I want chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml as my new tab page.

The extension was changing it to http://chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xhtml which broke it.
