How do I make Firefox download my files to the correct location?

Firefox has begun showing multiple password options when I am trying to log into a site. Several errors (and yes, I consider them ERRORS) are occurring:

1) Firefox presents passwords for EVERY account I have on the current website, not just the one I have entered in the UserID field;

and

2) Firefox presents multiple, previous versions of the password for the correct UserID.

I want this to stop, mainly because, before these errors were introduced, only the correct version of the correct UserID's password was auto-populated, and pressing the LOGIN button was all that was required.

I have returned to Firefox after a long hiatus. I imported my bookmarks from Chrome and recreated the bookmarks toolbar. After clicking on each one, most of them populate with their favicon, but a few do not. Any idea why? The icons do appear on the tab. This is a brand new installation so I can't imagine that clearing the cache would help.

I used to have two profiles. I deleted one. But I still got profile manager first when starting FF. So I clicked the box to load the default without asking. I'm almost sure that it was immediately after that, when clicking on links elsewhere (e.g. shortcuts I've created, links in pdfs) I get the "FF is already running message." So I manually opened profile manager and unclicked the "use selected profile without asking" button (and I've gone back and confirmed its unchecked) and I'm still getting the message.

For whatever reason, my NOAA radar website refuses to loop while checking with local Weather Bureau Office finds that their system works fine. They told me that there probably some flash app that was used that has been dropped by Firefox. How do I get it back?

At Firefox' recommendation, I added an extension/addon called 'single pane extension' where I think the idea was that Firefox could be save better. But since the install Firefox has become unusable. I can only use it in safe mode. Here is a screenshot. Sorry, but I can't figure out how to fix this.

Hi,

we have a website that runs without any issues on Chrome/IE/Firefox (private mode only). When we browse the website in Firefox (normal mode) it logs in fine but subseqent HTTP GET/POST are automatically redirect to our login page without any errors in the network/console developer tools.

If we disable the cache in Developer tools then the website works without any issues in Normal mode. This has started happening from last 2 months (hopefully due to the chagnes in Firefox)

Any advice on how to diagnose the problem will be helpful

Thanks in advance.

'Hi, is this a known issue? Ebay will not render inside my Firefow browser.

Still looks like some parts of the page don't load, tried all the individual line items in 'page info' without success.

Seems to forget that the security was overwritten.

I have thoroughly searched and researched, but cannot get LinkedIn to load in Firefox. It will load in all other browsers from this computer (Opera, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Edge - but I prefer Firefox).

What happens: I go to https://www.linkedin.com/ and I get the LinkedIn logo (a blue box with the word 'In' in the center and a progress bar that reminds me of the old KIT car from Knight Rider.

The only exception to this is if I clear the history/cookies/cache. In this case I get the LinkedIn login screen. Once I log in I am prompted to enter the code texted to my phone, then I am back to KIT.

I have tried all of the suggestions posted on this site - from changing the MTU on my router (actually even replaced the router), changed prefetch options in about:config as well as the IPv6 settings.

I have also disabled all ForeFox extensions and plug-ins as well as switching Themes. I use AVG Internet Security, so I have disabled the firewalls, turned off my VPN (Tunnelbear) and run a deep system scan.

Through all of this the ONLY site I cannot seem to get into is LinkedIn.

Any other ideas? Thanks for your time and prompt replies.

The crashes are very frequent; often when I download something it freezes, and it has to be closed with CTRL+ALT+CANC (not with just "close windows"). Also very often it starts to visualize its content flashing or partially (or both ways) so it has to be closed. Also very often the window grows by itself and hide the Windows lower bar; other times the window is very small and cannot be resized in any way.

For example, when I search for the text "sabre/xml" I land on https://www.sabre.com/xml which is a 404 page, but I did not want to go to any website other than my default search engine. Why does Firefox sometimes redirect my searches like that? How do I turn it off?

Edit I updated to version 75 from 74 and also tried on Ubuntu, same issue there.

Whenever I maximize (not fullscreen) my Firefox a white border surrounds my windows expect on the top. It even hides my taskbar. I already reinstalled it and tried to delete the remaining files in C:\Program Files but without any success. My Windows is 1909 and Firefox 74.0.
