Firefox is downloading all PDFs that I open rather than opening them and then downloading/saving only the ones I need to save. I've adjusted my settings to "open with Adobe Acrobat DC" and don't see any further settings. I'm on a MacBookPro. TIA!!

I am trying to install Video DownloadHelper on Firefox on a MacBook Pro 10.15.7 Catalina. Clicking on 'Download,' I get 'video_downloadhelper-4-9-22-fx-sm.xpi' And a message saying 'There is no application set up to open the document...' It says to search the App Store - but there is nothing. I have changed .xpi to .zip - but no luck. How do I install Video DownloadHelper on my MacBook Pro running Firefox?

Whenever I try to download something off my google drive, text pops up in the bottom left corner, but then nothing happens. It works just fine on microsoft edge, so I think its a firefox issue and not a google drive issue. I tried refreshing my browser, deleting my cookies, updating my browser, turning off enhanced tracking protection, and anything else I could think of. Please help.

Automatically open downloaded csv files with Excel

I have for many years tried to have excel automatically open downloaded .csv files as I do this every day many times. Until today I have not been able to understand why, despite having asked for Firefox to automatically open .csv files with Excel, and therefore finding "Microsoft Excel Comma Separated Values File" associated to "Use Excel (Default)" in the application association list in the General settings, Firefox continues to ask what to do with the .csv file type when downloading.

What I have discovered is that when using a search for associations in the General tab, csv gives no results! However searching for cel does for some reason list the "Microsoft Excel Comma Separated Values File".

It seems to me that the file type three letter code for the Microsoft excel csv file is wrongly stated in the association list. Is my assumption right? If so how can I correct this please?

For information I have had this problem on more than one computer! I have just set this up on a brand new laptop when discovering this.

Images attached... Thank you.

I frequently download excel worksheet files in the format of .xlsx The extension is not found in the Firefox options-files and applications-applications content type. It is not an option to choose this to save the file in a particular location--see attached screen shot. If it is under another name please let me know. There is an option to download excel worksheet files--only 97-2003, xlsx is an Excel 2016 worksheet. Why isnt this updated with the latest version of Firefox: 85.0.2 which I am using? Even if I select 'use excel 2016 (default)'--screen shot 2/ it does not have the option to remember where to save the file--only to open with or save, like the option for other files.--screenshot 3.

I just want it to always save to desktop.
