Working with problems with TrueKey. Opens Chrome when Firefox is standard browser. Looking into the standard apps settings, Firefox has two entries. Is this a bug or residue form earlier versions? There is no difference in settings following this or that entry.

That download progress icon on the upper right used to always work and lately it has stopped. I have version 84.0.2 for Ubuntu Linux. I click on it and nothing happens. I like to check the speed to see if maybe I should switch to a different VPN server or not.

Is it possible to save anything Firefox already downloaded? Currently all the “save” buttons seem to mean “download”; even the “view source” button makes additional request which may fail or even redirect (so e.g. clicking that on http://a.b/c may led one to view-source:http://d.e/f if the former page became a redirect in the meantime)

I have set the Downloads preference to "Always ask you where to save files".

When I download a file (I usually download PDF files), Firefox presents the file picker dialog with some directory pre-selected.

I would expect Firefox to pre-select the directory where I saved my most recent file.

However, Firefox often switches between several of my recent directory, seemingly absolutely arbitrarily. It would present the most recent directory e.g. 5 times in a row then suddenly switch to some other directory on its own.

This is EXTREMELY annoying and bad, as it is easy to overlook the changed directory and save the file in an unintended directory. It happened several times to me.

This behavior so destructive and annoying that I would consider it a bug that should get fixed (other browsers do not do this!). However if it is for some strange reason considered to be a feature, how can it turned off and how can Firefox be made to ALWAYS present the most recent download directory?

I've noticed for about 2 weeks now, my google street view is not working like it used to. It some times will not respond and when it does respond it is very slow. I didn't used to have this problem, so maybe a new Firefox update or some other issue is causing then problem? How can I view my browser settings to see if some thing there is causing the problem? Hopefully, someone can help and cure the problem. Thanks,

I was including code in javascript for asking the user about the location and the prompt is coming for asking the location and if now I console log with navigator.permission.query({name:geolocation}) then in state i am getting "prompt" which is fine but after allowing or denying i am not getting "allowed" or "denied" its still "prompt" but this things work fine in chrome. so is there any other object which is storing this state? for Mozilla or just Mozilla doesn't support this?

I have my favorite applications set as defaults in the autoplay extensions options. I have "do this every time" checked in the dialog box that pops up every time I try to open a file. It doesn't matter what the file extension is. PDF, MP4, and JPG files don't automatically open.

I posted a similar question before when I thought this only applied to MP4 files. Since then, I've noticed it applies to all files.

I would really appreciate some help getting this to work again. Jim Birke

Firefox recently - now seeing ver. 84.0.02 in Jan 2021 - when trying to print a page in Firefox Browser is really poor and very difficult to use. What stupid programmer or Mozilla exec decided to take away the option to easily re-size (or "simplify pages") and then easily select pages which pages to print? Stupid decision - very stupid. Makes me decide to change from Firefox and go elsewhere for a browser!!! NOW I have to, when I print, go through an extra step of selecting ":Print using the system dialog..." to easily select double sided printing and select only desired pages. AND I STILL CANNOT RECONFIGURE THE ZOOM TO REDUCE AMOUNT OF PAPER USED!. Really, really a bad decision. Change back...or tell me how to get rid if this new Print Option Menu and go back or I just quit Firefox....quit Mozilla. (OK - I just went exploring and fond 'size adjustment' and 'print on two sides' under the options. Still pretty shitty and I am so pissed off by now, I am changing my primary/default browser and taking Firefox off my desktop, iPhone, iPad and laptop. So no reply is needed. Just pass this on to Mozilla and let them see what such unannounced changes does to their customer base. Stay safe...2021 is not looking any better than the last shitty year.

CPU's intermittently would rev high and cause shut down. I opened task manager processes and CPU usage was high in Firefox. I clicked on Firefox and seven other Firefox dropped down. Not sure what that meant but, I then opened programs and noticed two versions on my computer, 82.0 and 84.0. I uninstalled 82.0 and now everything is gone. I reinstalled 84,0,2 but, it is "watered down" from the version before the uninstall. Please let me know how I can recover Firefox to before the uninstall. I'm running Windows 10 Home.

Hello, I am just disappointed. My Firefox icon is missing from the Start menu and therefore from the taskbar when launching.

I tried to clear the icon cache (by deleting iconcache* in "C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer"), Reinstall firefox, delete %APPDATA% and %LOCALAPPDATA% firefox folders, but nothing changes.

Any clue? I don't have any idea.

PS: It's only for my profile. I just don't want to delprof, I have tons of apps with settings, etc

I've been having trouble for a couple of months with Firefox. It's on both my desktop and my laptop with both Firefox and Firefox Developer. It seems to happen at random, but instead of being able to see words, all I can see is symbols like these (attached). If I copy/paste it into a word doc or a text file, I can read it just fine. It's only in the browser that I experience these issues.

Has anyone else had these issues? Is there an easy fix that I'm just not seeing?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Hard to explain why I am asking here, but here goes:

I am a reseller and use different sources. One of our vendor's websites is showing me retail pricing after I login. Our special prices used to (and are supposed) be visible. If you don't log in, no prices are visible. My sales rep asked IT, who said to clear cache and cookies. And again today, he said it is on my end, not theirs.

Of course, that doesn't solve the problem. Do not even know where to begin.

Hello,

I have some trouble adding an e-mail address to the monitor service. It seems that the e-mail bounce back. My e-mail provider is asking me if I can provided them with the e-mail sent by firefox, and the received answer, so they could check what is causing it. How could I get those information? Thank you in advance. Best regards, Cyril
