Hello to all, I work with Firefox 75.0 (64-bits) and I keep it always updated. My telecomprovider offers me regularly the invoice in pdf-format. When I download it, the filename is changed into 8 characters, not being a sensible or readable name (ie "7fH5Rsd3.pdf"). When I asked the the provider to change this, it was clear it already is. Other customers working with IE or Chrome etc. don't have this problem. It was suggested this could be Firefox itself. The strange thing is this happens only with this provider and apparantly only with me. Everywhere else pdf's or any other file downloads just fine with their respective names. So, what could be the cause? One obscure setting in Firefox? Or should I look elsewhere? BTW: this is happening with all previous versions of Firefox, but I don't know when it started.

FIREFOX 75 UPDATE: How to change internet address bar dropdown to display most visited sites?

How to change the browser.urlbar.maxRichResults in about:config to display more recently viewed websites in the drop-down list in the address bar after Firefox 75 update?… (read more)

How to change the browser.urlbar.maxRichResults in about:config to display more recently viewed websites in the drop-down list in the address bar after Firefox 75 update? I only see 6 results when I had it set to about 20 before.

I have gone to browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus and changed that setting to False thinking that would help but all that has done is eliminated the entire drop-down list altogether when the address bar is clicked.

I checked my browsing privacy options in the settings menu within Firefox and it appears everything remains exactly as before, prior to update. Maybe there is some special combo of settings and about:config options that can bring the drop-down menu back that I enjoyed so much prior to update version 75.

Any recommendations?

Hello,

Today, Mozilla for some unknown reason downloaded 160gb of data just today. This drained my internet package, and I do not have anymore internet in the package from the ISP. I have to buy a new one.

Can you please advise what I need to do to stop Mozilla Downloading data without me knowing? When I look at downloads tab, there is nothing. When I look at history, there is nothing. I need urgent help to stop my computer from downloading unnecessary data. On top of that, the computer doesn't have that much disk space.

Urgent assistance is appreciated.

I cannot export or backup bookmarks. When I try to, no file is created. I have refreshed Firefox, created a new profile and copied the sqlite file, and uninstalled/reinstalled. None of these actions solved the issue. Could there be a corrupt bookmark that is preventing these functions? Is there another way to export/backup?

In my Cookies and Site Data, under "last used" it says there's a whole bunch of cookies being accessed every time I launch Firefox. Even if I launch Firefox with no open tabs, cookies are still being accessed when I launch.

I find this deeply disturbing! Cookies surely should not be able to activate until you start visiting websites?

Can anyone please explain how and why are these cookies being accessed?

Hi guys. I tested this recently on notebook with Windows 10. I installed Firefox, sign in to my account, synced everything. Let's say, I need to delete all the data and this account from this particular device. I couldn't find such an option. When I deleted my account from Firefox, all the data left on the notebook! Even when I uninstall the browser, and then install it again - browser restored all the data!!!

Is it possible to delete my sync account and all the data related to it: history, bookmarks, sessions, extensions, add-ons, everything?

Let's say, I'm signed in on a friend's laptop and need to delete everything later.

The latest update of Firefox includes an incredibly annoying "feature". Clicking in the address bar brings up a drop-down list of sites: youtube, facebook, reddit, wikipedia, twitter. This is distracting and I don't like Firefox shilling for these other sites. How do I get rid of these?

When I enter text in the 'find in page' (cntrl-F) text box the screen goes into partial Dark Mode, sometimes full Dark Mode. The issue presents itself as soon as a word in the find box cannot be found - 'commu' is OK, 'commue' is ng. It happens in 'Safe Mode' also. I am using the 'light theme' but the problem occurs using any theme.
