When I am in 1 window, I have multiple tabs open, but when I hover over the Firefox logo in my taskbar, the tabs appear in different windows that have each tab but not the other tabs from the window I am on. Like every individual tab has its own window. This has never happened to me before, only started happening today.

I had to clear History and Cookies on my desktop to get an online purchase done. I was able to add my passwords for every site bar one (afl.com.au). It just won't accept my password despite changing it. Works fine in Brave and Chrome. Also fine on my laptop (didn't clear anything there). Any help sincerely appreciated.

I used to have an APP that looked like a backward c to sign out. It gives you 3 different time lengths to use. Then it warns that all data will be lost. You press the key at the bottom and signs you out and then immediately right back in. This just disappeared.

Also where are all the apps that were grouped together I think they were under command? I could just click on one (like the printer) and drag it to my task bar. I can't find it either.

When on Firefox, I sometimes fill out a form on a website for a variety of reasons, i.e. requesting a document. After doing so, I can find no record that it was sent. My primary email is [edited email from public] @gmail.com. Is that what is used to send it? If so, I cannot find any record of it when I check "sent" items on that account. Please tell me where i can find that record? Steve C

Forcing FF to use http protocol instead of it using https

At work with work with test servers. Sometimes those are using just HTTP, sometimes HTTPS protocol. However, once Firefox sees HTTPS, it does not let to go back to HTTP protocol.

Not sure, why a browser should know better than a user (when typed the whole URL, including HTTP://) to use HTTPS. Also, when the error page ("Unable to connect") comes, there is no option to use HTTP instead.

Why on the address bar, when either Delete key or right-click-delete are used the autofil for that host / domain are not cleared? Why that error page doesn't have a well described (warning the user of the consequences) option to still use HTTP?

I've just had my browsing interrupted with this recommendation to install an extension: https://torrent-protection.com/download-now/

I was viewing this page: https://www.eurogamer.net/with-the-new-ps-plus-premium-and-extra-sony-opts-for-the-car-boot-sale-approach-to-catalogue-gaming

I was taken out of the page without pressing anything and taken to this recommendation. In particular, it appears like an official Firefox message and security recommendation, with Firefox suggesting I should install this extension for my security. Sadly I don't have a screenshot but it's happened twice this morning already.

Is this really Firefox endorsed? Or are they pushing their extension with fake credentials? How is the page viewing interrupted this way and diverted automatically to another webpage?

I chose the option to open pdf files (for example) on Firefox. But Firefox first downloads them to my "download" directory and only than opens it with Acrobat. My "download" directory now is full with garbage files that I need to delete manually. Is there any good option how to disable this "feature"? I would prefer not to see all the garbage files at all.

I changed "browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel" to false. Doesn't work.

Firefox 103.0 - 64bit; Windows 10. Since Monday, I have been unable to download anything. The download starts and after a couple of seconds reports "Failed". I have tried starting in safe mode and it still fails. I've done a refresh to no effect. I also have another machine which has the same Firefox version and a copy of the profile but still runs Windows 7. No problem with that one....

Anyone got any ideas?

I want to be able to open, say, pdf files and NOT have them saved in the downloads directory unless I mark them to be saved in the open dialogue. Firefox worked that way for years. I reported this as a bug, I think in V.101. After much palaver, some of it irrelevant, the bug was reported fixed, but it has not been.

The bug number — it changed frequently — I last noted down was 1738574.
