Firefox Nightly does not recognize any programs.

For example, when I download a configuration file from Zoom, it asks me what to do with that file.

Usually, My firefox recommends me some programs or I can browse through a few suggestions.

With Firefox Nightly, there is absolutely nothing suggested... I need to browse to the programs .exe file.

Why is that? Is that so because I got both browsers installed?? This is very annoying. I would like to use the nightly version. It seems not to have that "loading" issue of websites which my firefox always has.

Hello, is this the standard behavior for downloading the FF by using some different web browsers? I am talking still about the same version of 64bit FF for Win10 offline installer US but downloading this in different web browsers... The (final) downloaded file has exactly the same size of file but "slightly" different content - this is happening only when downloading FF. If I download different browser in various browsers then the size and content is exactly the same - but not in case of FF. Is it OK (some adjustemnt..) please or could it be virus? Thank you in advance for your respond. Jiri

Hello. I downloaded a Netgear driver update utility zip file (??) and for some reason I got confused when it said it would open it with Windows Explorer... and I decided to have it opened with Firefox instead. To add dumb insult to dumb injury, I checked the box to have downloads do that with ALL files like that going forward. If i click on that downloaded file, more than 175 tabs open up before i can make it stop. How do I undo this? Thank you kindly in advance

Hello!

I'm getting an error message from Firefox whenever I try to open it that my profile is missing or cannot be accessed (see attached image).

I have tried everything from the help articles so far, and nothing worked. I deleted the profiles.ini file, I deleted the entire Firefox folder under Application Support, I have deleted Firefox and reinstalled it. None of that worked.

Even when I try to create/delete/save my profile over the Terminal, I get the attached error message.

I love using Firefox, but I simply cannot use it this way. No matter if I use the default, developers or nightly version.

If anyone has an idea how I could fix the issue I would be incredibly thankful.

Thank you already in advance for your help!

Is there a way to permanently disable checking for updates? I don't want to update (and I don't care what people think about that), but every 5 minutes an update notification pops up that needs to be closed, and it is getting really annoying. Again i don't want to update and there is no option to disable checking for updates, only to automatically update whenever firefox wants to ruin my day or to bother me until I allow them to ruin it.

On my MacBook pro running macOS Catalina 10.15.7 (most recent version) Firefox crashed after an update around one hour ago. I've uninstalled Firefox in the end and downloaded a new one from the site. I get 'error code - 36' over and over, see attached screen shot. I've downloaded Firefox on various different browsers, bat always this same error code. Always enjoyed Firefox without any hiccup up to now! Suggestions anyone? Thanks. Chris

I have the download setting to "Always ask you where to save files". Unfortunately, Firefox keeps changing the setting back to the default. I understand that, unfortunately, whenever Firefox does an update it changes all my settings back to the defaults (but that's a different issue).

I have 'Firefox updates' set to only install when I okay the install. Unfortunately something is changing even when I have not run an update.

Why might my download settings be reverting back to the default setting?

I often view pictures on https://www.pixiv.net/ When I select one jpg image on pixiv.net, copy this picture and then paste it to somewhere else, It becomes completely blank. And the copied image file is broken due to unknown reasons. Here I added one picture. It shows the result when I paste a said jpg image from pixiv.net to somewhere else (like a word document page). This issue happens with firefox 83 and firefox beta 84. It never happens with firefox 82. I don't know what caused this issue.
