Hi, I read through another thread where someone was having this same issue and there was no resolve because no one seemed to understand the issue. My issue is that I can't clear the "Save Files to" setting under "Files and Applications\Downloads" and leave it at "Always Ask". What I wind up with is a lot of clutter in my Downloads folder. So my question is, How do I correct this setting so FireFox stops saving files in places that I don't want them saved?

As the title says Cloudflares Human Verification Captcha doesnt work on this browser forcing me to have to use 2 separate browser to circumvent the issue which is annoying. basically when I click on the verification it goes into a loop of trying to load the captcha then asking me to click it again for it to only repeat the process until it gets stuck on a several minute loading before telling me it failed to load with no error message. Eventually stops even trying to do the loop and does right into the minute long loading and failure to load message. I have found no help for this online and im not tech savvy enough to be able to fix this issue on my own. things ive tried 1. making sure firefox and all extensions are up to date 2. completely restarting the browser 2. disabling all extensions on the site 3. tried private window 4. tried other web browsers (it only effects firefox)

Hello there. Some months back Firefox decided to block my Dragon NaturallySpeaking extension. This extension is needed so that I can properly control my browser using speech as I have severe repetitive strain injury through typing. The explanation given is that the extension violates some privacy rules that Firefox have put into place.

Whilst I fully appreciate how Firefox is looking out for us, I am really puzzled as to why I do not have the option to say that I am not concerned about this issue and want to continue using the extension. The Dragon NaturallySpeaking software costs several hundred pounds, and it has now been rendered much less effective, which prevents me from working properly in my browser.

I have of course contacted Dragon NaturallySpeaking who just said that they were looking into it, but nothing has been done (presumably I am running a version that they no longer actively support).

Could you please explain to me why it is not possible to allow the users to make an informed decision about whether or not to continue to use an extension? I find it very hard to believe that an extension which is well established as the leading speech recognition software is a serious threat to me?

I have noticed that my browser saves certain data that was filled into forms on websites such as contact info, or 2FA codes. Of course, the all options for Logins and Passwords as well as Forms and Autofill are turned off. So I wonder, what causes this behavior? I would maybe think these are some cookies, but after clearing them and deleting all site data this still happens. For 2FA codes this is harmless. but I'm concerned Firefox may do this for passwords too. Anyway, why would I need to save info of TOTP?

Note: Example is for SimpleLogin.

I feel like I've been seeing people online complaining about this for a couple of years now, and it's shocking to me that I still couldn't find a solution in a thorough google search. Has anyone found a fix for the mandatory restart Firefox now pushes whenever there's an update available? Basically, out of nowhere, the program will refuse to open any new tabs or load any pages, instead giving the error message in the image. A restart is forced, and all private tabs are lost without warning. This is completely unacceptable browser behavior. As far as I know, there is no setting or about:config option that will fix this. Has anyone found a work-around?

I've been a loyal Firefox user for a couple of decades at this point, but this nonsense has me seriously considering switching to something else. Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

I was having some hard drive trouble so I formatted my pc. I did not think much of the browser favorites and tabs because they should have been synced.

This time, however, I seem to be unable to retrieve the data from my old computer, there is even a computer in my synced items (I'm hoping from the system before restoring, windows 11 on what used to be windows 10) but am unable to get anything from it, or see the history ect

My bookmarks have duplicated and I didn't do anything except try to sync with my laptop and desktop. I tried the only solution I could find, the "verify integrity - Places Database" and that did nothing. If this can't be fixed, it's time to move on to another browser.

When I want to go to the NY Times, and i type "nyt" the address bar automatically populated with the rest of the URL "nytimes.com". When I do the same thing with gmail and "gmail" it runs a search on a search engine instead of completing the rest of the URL.

Why would it do this for one website and not another? How do I fix this, I use gmail all the time so its a bit of a time waster.

Thank you in advance for your help!

I have followed various threads about importing my passwords without any success.

I recently swapped PCs so I exported passwords and bookmarks to disk to install on the new PC.

The bookmarks have imported ok but the passwords are in the CSV format created by Mozilla on export from the old PC and there is no option to import a CSV which seems a bit crazy.

I cannot find a way to import this data. I have tried syncing with my laptop to get the passwords but that doesn't work either.

If anyone could help me resolve this problem I would be very grateful.

Many thanks,

Mark.

This might just be a blind thing, I use the NVDA screen reader, but when I sign in to firefox, my password is 12 letters long, but when I look on my settings page, it's 18 characters long, is this normal?

I can log in using my 12 letter password and it's not a master password, I don't have one of those.

Any help would be apreciated.
