Greetings- I was using my browser (single window, three open tabs) and I checked task manager - Firefox has several concurrent processes running and I don't understand. I understand the sandbox and one process having several child processes, but this I believe is suspect.

I also noticed that in the "Security at a glance" window in Win11, my icons have changed - there's a weird white box on most of the security icons. I'm thinking I may be under some sort of virus/trojan, etc., yet I've ran antivirus even in prior to boot and got nothing

Since the latest version of Firefox I cannot simply open attachments to Yahoo emails. I have to waste time to download and save the attachments before I can view them. How can this be fixed? Or, how can I download a previous version of Firefox and not have any updates?

Since the update to FF 98.0 I cannot click on a .zip file & have it open to Windows File Explorer. It only allows me to download & save the .zip file and then extract the files from there. I have to click on dozens of these files per day for my job & would rather not have to save each .zip file & then extract the file contents. In Settings > Applications, .zip files are not on the list of file types or applications. Is there a way to add them to the list? Is there some other work-around? Thank you!

I use a lot of excel files with ETM and when I pull a report, I need it to open with excel in a CSV file. That open no longer appears in the setting list.

When I try to open the report, it just takes me to a folder to download the report and then I have to manually open it with excel.

Can that please be fixed. It was working fine and then I noticed my firefox was updated last night, and this morning I can no longer use it correctly.

Hi

I'm guessing this is because of the latest update to Firefox, but every time a download finishes, the pop-up box for the downloads keeps coming up. I guess this is considered intuitive to let you know a download has finished, but I could do without it. I find it a bit distracting and it gets in the way. Is there a specific option that can disable it in the config?

Thanks

After the last update, every time i download something the download display pops open and shows all of my downloads. This used to only happen when i actually clicked on it, not every time i downloaded something. It's annoying to have to either close it after every download or have it take up a good part of the screen. how do i stop this from happening?

To clarify, the download library window doesn't open, just that menu that drops down when you click the download button.

I have selected the following settings to no avail:

"Choose how Firefox handles the files you download form the web or the applications you use while browsing:" I have set every file type to "always ask", yet when I click on a .kmz, it always prompts me to save it when I want to open it with Google Earth instead. I also tried the setting to default to opening with Google Earth, yet it still prompted me to save the file. I have rebooted to try to make this setting kick in and still no luck. Perhaps this is because the option on the Firefox list is .kml, not .kmz? How do I get it to give me a choice or default to opening with Google Earth?
