Today is Sept. 5, 2020 and I've noticed for the past few days when I download images, It comes up as canceled in the download manager. If It's an .exe file there's not a problem. With an image I have to click on the semi circle arrow and click re download. The second time it's fine and It downloads no problem. Can anyone help me?

Thank you,

Google Sheets is not functioning correctly in FF 80.0.1. I have two Macs; iMac and Macbook Pro both running OSX High Sierra and displaying the same issue. Google Sheets appears 'sticky' e.g. when clicking from one cell to another a whole section of the sheet will suddenly be highlighted. Clicking away simply moves the selection. It takes repeated clicking to finally select the desired cell. Tabs for different workbooks at the bottom can't be selected without the tab being 'grabbed' and dragged following the mouse cursor. Again, repeated clicking is required to release the tab.

I'm seeing no similar issues when viewing the same spreadsheets in Chrome. Has anyone else experienced this?

Firefox/Mac gets stuck when asking it to send Outlook mail/share Google Drive items

Hi, I'm using a Macbook pro (OS Mojave) & Firefox (80.0.1). I'm having issues when I'm in Outlook365 (web version) and I click the People icon at bottom left to send an email to my Contact Lists. I select a list, and Send E-mail, and the pop up window for Outlook Office 365 opens but there is nowhere to write the email. Just says "Loading" with a spinning wheel. Works with Safari, though.

Same for sharing with Google Drive. When I click Share, it says "Sorry, Sharing is unavailable at this time. Try again later." But it too works with Safari.

This just started happening a couple of weeks ago. I stopped all the extensions. I even threw out the Cookies and Cache, restarted, and refreshed/reinstalled Firefox.

Any help would be appreciated.

When I am using gmail I have the calandar application on the right. It has a link to open the full calandar in a new tab. However, firefox throws a warning about the page doing a redirect and I have to click allow. How do I turn that off for gmail / calandar only? I've looked at the exceptions but that doesn't seem to work or I'm not looking at the right settings.

When switching to "tablet mode" (on MS Surface) FF window i scaled small - not fitting the screen. To make it working I have to switch bach to "desktop mode", enlarge window to fit screen (click icon on the bar) and switch back to tablet. No a big deal, but a bit annoying. Recent FF, but it was the same on few last versions.

My Firefox web browser is configured to request pages in European Portuguese, namely by sending the HTTP Header: Accept-Language: pt,en;q=0.7,en-US;q=0.3

However, whenever accessing Mozilla web sites, the web server always choose to redirect to the page with the content in Brazilian Portuguese as can be confirmed looking also to the response HTTP header: localization: /pt-BR/

There are two errors, first the browser do not allow to add the Accept-Language as pt-PT so the server would make the correct judgement of the localization as a workaround since now W3C decided that pt stands for Portuguese from Portugal and all the other Portuguese speaking countries will have to add the capital letters of the respective country, meaning a Brazilian user should and currently can add the language Brazilian Portuguese as preferred language.

Please kindly correct both the browser and the web site so the pages in European Portuguese can be seen at all.

Even though I am signed into YouTube normally, I cannot subscribe to channels. I get "Want to subscribe to this channel? Sign in" and "Your session has expired" every time. Clicking "Sign In" (even though I am already signed in) does not help--the page refreshes and I get the same error.

Additionally, I am missing the entire channel maintenance section when I click on my account (Your Channel, Switch Account, etc. Screenshot attached where you can see it missing), so I can't even sign out and sign back in without clearing site data in Firefox settings.

Refreshing and uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox did not help. This is only happening in Firefox.

Running Ubuntu Linux in version 80.01.

Problem: Since Updating to Firefox 76, a strange problem occurs. All dark colors and context menu backgrounds become transparent. When having a window open behind the Firefox window, it will show through in all areas with dark colors (through images, text, menu's). This problem proves an issue, as I had to change my main desktop background to a solid black one to make Firefox usable, even so, I cannot use the context menus while on a website with a white background.

Solutions I have attempted: Changing browser themes/system themes Reverting all cosmetic changes Disabling all privacy add-ons Reverting all modified settings Even a fresh install using a different (default) profile did not work

What semi-works Booting in safe mode does fix the issue but the fresh install did not.

My question is: Does safe mode do additional modification to the browser other than reverting user modified settings? Basically, does safe mode mimic a fresh installation and if it does do additional changes, is it possible mimic the cosmetic changes that it does for normal browsing?

Hello! I'm trying to figure out how to export the site data of a specific website from my browser so I can import it on another domain or a different browser profile.

I have some quite important data that an application stored locally in my browser, but now the website went down. I want to copy the existing data to my own instance of the application running on another domain so I can continue where I left off.

This seems like it would be a very basic task to be able to backup and migrate your own data like you can with any native application. But as far as I can tell the developer tools offer no such option and all the add-ons that were able to do this stopped working or vanished.

Any help would be appreciated.

Since several version of Firefox, I'm unable to use the menu of Firefox when in full screen as it shows itself outside of screen. As I understand it, the origin of the windows seems not correct, as the arrow on the top, which should be under the mouse pointer, is at the opposite. (See the picture attached, it's probably best explained that way).

I've tried to launch Firefox in safe mode, but It didn't change anything.
