I'm well aware that they made changes to Firefox 98 and removed the option to Download without saving. However, the documented "fix" to change the about.config to disable a specific command is blocked when using the browser in an Enterprise setting (probably due to a group policy so employees can't tamper their browsers to do something they shouldn't do, like login using their personal accounts).
Note that the reason why Download without saving is useful is because I work a lot on one-off reports. It saves me a click of not having to deal with cleaning out my downloads folder. I feel that the devs have catered too much on the novice users and ignored the power users. At least Edge still allows you to do it.
is there a way to download the Firefox version before this without automatically updating to the latest one? I honestly don't like this change. I have transitioned my work to Edge, but one frustrating thing about it is I can't open reports of the same name. I do 2 passes on one report and put it on a template to combine them. Firefox allows me to download these reports at the same time, but having to sift through your download folder to delete the files you don't want to keep. I would want to give Firefox a chance if this is reverted, else, I will have to uninstall it because it doesn't serve me a purpose anymore as a browser to run and open one-off reports.
Or if there is a way to change browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to false even if access to about.config is blocked by Enterprise?
If you're going to do a future update, please do have a switch for us to go back to the old way of doing things without having to go through tampering config settings.
