Why does FF forget 'always do this' settings from session to session?

whenever FF opens/saves a particular file type, i set the 'Do this from now on' button for that file type or when i download a link that passes to a handler application, i click the 'always do this' button on the little toast dropdown. i do this because, shocker, i ALWAYS WANT FIREFOX TO DO THAT. but when i close the session, either manually or via reboot, when i launch back into FF, it asks me all over again for the same things.

now this crap has been a problem since time immemorial (since FF 26, IIRC) and it's always broken. when the hell is this going to be fixed, now that we have ONE MORE dialog that stupidly asks us to set a pref it has no intention of keeping?

somebody is gong to say 'make a new profile' or 'refresh FF', but none of that has ever worked and it doesn't work now because i've literally just setup six brand new machines and ALL OF THEM have this behaviour, ranging from Firefox, Firefox Nightly, Firefox Focus, right to Firefox Developer Edition. all of them fresh, right out of the box.

if anyone knows how to make this bloody behaviour stick, please let me know, otherwise the dev team needs to just remove the ask... or fix it and make the blasted thing do its job. >:(

Hi There, Before I could sign up to a website I was directed to install a VPN service and they prescribed me to get NORD VPN and I thought but why not using the VPN service that I already have which is Mozilla VPN. So I tried to lock on to the site but I just could not now what do I do. I already pay for Mozilla VPN and if I do have to get Nord then I will have to cancel my Mozilla VPN. Please could you advice me what to do.

I have changed the settings in about:config, and also with options in the tools menu on Firefox, and I am still having problems, specifically with Fox News, but also other sites that allow a video to automatically play and blast audio. It is very disconcerting that there doesn't seem to be a way to stop this from happening. Can you help? I am using Firefox 86.

I can't find a way to enlarge the font size in menu or bookmarks toolbar, or the drop down menu and the bookmarks themselves. It is ridiculously miniscule and I have to use a magnifier to see it - I have Fuchs Dystrophy so my eyesight varies from day to day, but 16-18 size is usually ok. Can anyone point the way if any please?

Many thanks Teresa

I have allowed auto updates of FF to version 17 For all of the updates since I thin FF15 Kasp PM has failed to work with FF but works fine with IE (this is of course highly irritating). The Kasp website forum keeps issuing patches that it claims fix the problem but they don't. The add-on manager in FF always reports PM as incompatible and disabled. Has anyone had this problem and worked out a fix. The Kasp forum showed a bit of interest in my posts but now never seems to answer.

My McAfee SiteAdvisors is activated but doesnt show in the add-on bar. I double checked the situation under « Tool, Add-on, Extensions » and the add-on is enable. Also the « Add-on bar » is activated.The green McAfee SiteAdvisor button dissapeared after firefox update 16.02. I updated to 17 in case it would resolve the problem with no success. McAfee is still working by giving a warning page if I try to go on a suspiscious site. Also in google search result I no longer get the little McAfee evaluation icones.

FF17 Mouse wheel line scrolling too fast, alt+scroll missing

Upgraded to FF17 from FF16. Noticed that when I scroll w/ my mouse it jumps about 5 or 6 lines, versus 16's 3 or so. Also, the old mouse shortcut of alt+mousescroll to scroll line by line is gone. A google search netted me the Gecko wiki explaining all the new mouse scrolling options under about:config, but it was mostly over my head. One part I did understand is the loss of the old "mousewheel.withnokey.numlines" and "mousewheel.withnokey.sysnumlines" strings.

I figured it out by changing mousewheel.system_scroll_override_on_root_content.enabled to "false", and it is working at the same speed as it did under FF16, but the ability that alt+mousescroll provided is still missing. Having the ability to customize the mouse scroll speed (instead of turning off the system scroll override) is still outside of my grasp as well.

I love Firefox, but I have 2 distinctly different needs. I need 2 separate Firefox browsers with very different settings, consistent with very different uses:

1. This use of Firefox will be for visiting many different websites, a wide variety of interests.

2. I need this use of Firefox to be very limited and restricted, consistent with handling personal investments, banking, financial transactions. There will be very few websites, but with extremely secure, private, connections.

. I cant get Yahoo mail to appear as a default mail option for firefox:

because I cant proceed past the "scroll down to 'mailto' in the 'apps' step of the instructions provided by Support.   I'm stuck there because 'mailto' isn't on the list. 

Right clicking on Outlook(the current email default I cant get rid of)does nothing.

Ive since modified Micro Office and deleted Outlook entirely, but that didn't make Yahoo Mail magically appear as an option anywhere.

I cant get Yahoo mail to appear as an option for default email for Windows 7 either. I can get to the page where you may choose how Windows uses various defaults, but Yahoo isn't there.

I downloaded the latest Yahoo toolbar as I had in the past for IE and nothing changed (what I DID get stuck with is an irritating as hell, loud alert tone that sounds with every email I get--even when there's music playing or a movie on--and flashes me a constant reminder on lower left of screen that I have 785 unread messages)
