How do I remove this crap tab list? I don't want that option, Firefox just updated and added it as a fixed function. Honestly it seems that the Firefox development team does not care about the interests of users, currently I need to use 2 browsers because one of them does not have an option to create shortcuts to the sites I frequent

Greetings all I am a long time Chrome user trying to make the switch to Firefox. Mostly I love it, but one of my biggest roadblocks is Google Drive and Google Docs.

I'm very much a don't-take-your-hands-off-the-keyboard kind of guy and so I am heavily invested in the Google Docs menus and I have all the common menu commands memorized. (e.g., Alt-F, R to rename the current Google Doc.)

The problem on Firefox is that when I press Alt-F, I get the Firefox menu, not the Google Docs menu. So I have to resort to clicking the menu with the mouse instead of using the keyboard shortcut. Not the end of the world, but annoying.

Is there anyway to configure Firefox or Google Docs so I can use the Google Docs menus? Is there any sort of Add-on that would help with this?

Thanks Calvin Powers

Some .MSI Files Downloaded as Garbled Plain/Text in Firefox v106.0.x

I am trying to download a .msi installer from the Dell servers at https://dl.dell.com/serviceability/catalog/SupportAssistx64-3.12.3.5.msi using Firefox v106.0.1 but when I click on that link it opens in a new tab as garbled plain/text (see attached image). If I right click that link and choose "Save Link As" then I am able to correctly download the .msi file.

I have no problem downloading this .msi installer using MS Edge v106.0.1370.52.

I don't think there is a universal problem downloading all .msi installers with Firefox since I can download the latest 64-bit .msi installer for Firefox (Firefox Setup 106.0.1.msi) from https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ without a problem.

I found a comment by jsche2000 in rkm's July 2017 thread clicking on msi link displays garbage rather than download msi file that "usually the problem is that the server is not set up with a specific content-type for .msi so it sends a default content type such as text/html or text/plain that Firefox dutifully displays in a tab... Unfortunately, there's no built-in way to tell Firefox 'when you see a .msi extension, ignore the content-type indicated by the server and just save it' ".

Before I contact Dell and ask them to fix this problem on their download server, is there any possibility that Firefox v106.0.x has introduced a bug in the way this browser recognizes the specific content-type of some .msi installers? I'm not sure, but there seems to be a change in way that Firefox downloads files in v106.0.x. For example, when I download the latest 64-bit .msi installer for Firefox from https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ my Firefox prompt now specifically declares that I'm downloading a Windows Installer Package (see attached image), which I don't recall seeing with previous versions of Firefox.

-----------

64-bit Win 10 Pro v21H2 build 19044.2130 * Firefox v106.0.1 * Microsoft Defender v4.18.2209.7-1.1.19700.3 * Malwarebytes Premium v4.5.16.217-1.0.1792 * Macrium Reflect Free v8.0.6979 * Dell SupportAssist v3.12.3.5 * Dell Update Windows Universal v4.6.0 Dell Inspiron 15 5584, Intel i5-8265U CPU, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB Toshiba KBG40ZNS256G NVMe SSD, Intel UHD Graphics 620

Firefox keeps asking to sign-in for the past few months, which gets me irritated each time. Why my Google accounts for mail, sheets, docs etc getting logged out each time I switch off my PC? When I switch it back on and open Firefox to access my Google tools like mail, sheets and other stuff, it asks for a log in every time. I have to sign in to my workspace every single time and also for my wordpress dashboard. Why does not this browser save my credential and show the dashboard directly just like in Chrome?

I want to save my login credentials forever so that I can jump into my stuff directly!

When I open certain websites (Zillow, Redfin and others) and when I click on a Mail To link in my IOS mail apps on my Mac I now get either a popup to use my Google account or Firefox opens the gmail website. I don't have a google account. Why is this now happening in Firefox. I don't want to login to Zillow, etc., every time I open the website and I have set my Mail app as the default app in "preferences" yet it persists.

Logo Corporate Firefox is no longer supported in private mode

The Firefox browser is no longer supported in private mode on our site. To continue, please take Firefox out of private mode or choose another browser. We recommend Chrome, Safari or Edge.

Do I have to compromise my privacy and security just to use the t-mobile.com website?

This happens only on the t-mobile.com website and only after I try to log in to my account. If I don't try to log-in to my account their website works just fine with Firefox.

Thanks for any help on this situation.

My email address is: abworldwide@icloud.com

I always use Firefox - last week opened Google Maps in Firefox- no problem - it worked fine - was in English - all good! This week - opened Google Maps - and all by itself there is an account of a person (not me) in Thai. I don't speak or understand Thai so I can't even try to get out of this persons account or eliminate it (not to mention - why is it there in the first place??? It just magically appeared???) By chance - I tried Google Maps in Safari (which I never use) - the account came up - NOT under this alien persons name - just regular Google Maps in English. I was able to utilize it - no problem.

This is extremely bizarre - I don't want to use Safari - but apparently Firefox has screwed up here (on it's own it has put this account into my machine - why?) - or possibly it's Google who screwed up which wouldn't be surprising. A person cannot contact Google - they are so arrogant they just have the attitude - we are Google - use our stuff - and the hell with you - nice!!! However - if Safari is just getting the regular Google Maps site - why is Firefox opening Google Maps in an alien account - like mentioned - I just went in like regularly and this alien account appeared.

I never use any of Googles services - I do have an OLD account there - but don’t even remember the user name or log-in. I don’t like their company - they are overbearing - dictatorial - and intrusive - so why bother with them. But no clue why this alien account would have been attached to my computer - not there one week - and then there the next out of the blue???

At any rate - is there any way to get rid of this alien account in my Firefox browser - I am not a computer wiz - but can follow instructions on how to do things easily. Maybe the Firefox cache needs to be cleared - I don’t know (?) - nor do I really know how to do that. Or why the cache would be storing information that shouldn’t be on my machine in the first place??? Thanks!

I just installed Firefox on a new computer and am having lots of issues w/set-up. I found the place in settings that lets you chose the home page and how new tabs are displayed, but the only options for new tabs seem to be Mozilla's default and blank page. For now I've set it to blank page but I'm trying to find a way that any new tab I open defaults to google. Thank you for your help.
