Have new mac with catalina & installed Firefox browser ok last week. Now it's suddenly missing from apps folder !. Trying to re-install but keeps failing....download 77.0.1.dmg ok. click & open creates small firefox icon & popup message instructing to drag the icon onto the Application folder icon in the dock. This causes the app store to open but with a message saying 'unable to connect to app store' when I close the message the app store is open but no sign of the firefox app. New download or reboot have no effect. What am I doing wrong? Regards Phil

When I open a PDF file in firefox, click the download button, and assign a filename with multiple consecutive spaces in the name, firefox changes the spaces to a single space.

"asdf asdf.pdf" becomes "asdf asdf.pdf"

How do I fix this?

incorrect checksums of downloaded Firefox

Every time I download a new release of Firefox (win64 german), I check the downloaded file at virustotal and check the hashes published under http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/<Version>, e.g. http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/78.0.1/SHA256SUMS Up until release 77.0 the hashes matched but for 77.0.1 and also the current release 78.0.1 the hashes do not match, neither SHA256 nor SHA512. For "win64/de/Firefox Setup 78.0.1.exe" the SHA256 hash should be 56cff68e3f0cb76a6404d675f7e1bacc40ebaba7bbb5cadcb4950378656ab0a6 but the calculated hash is 8e69755f257aba44b6bbe5079e17f3bff8b62ddc27de9e1c479686e9ad871dfb When checking at virustotal, the file is recognized as scanned before and the displayed hash is the one I calculated, so at least my downloaded file is equal to the file other persons downloaded. Could it be that since v77.0.1 the published hashes are incorrect?
