How/why did file index open in a browser window?

I saved an image (JPEG) appearing in a Firefox browser tab onto my Mac. Maybe I clicked something because the saved list of files on the left side of my Finder window briefly highlighted, but the only thing to "undo" was renaming the file, something I'd intentionally done.

When I went back to the first tab in Firefox which originally displayed the item I'd saved (also open in a second tab), the tab displayed the contents of what was stored in a file on my Mac. The address reads "file:///Users/. . ." It also shows that the last modified file is the ".ds_store" file at around the same time this happened. The folder from my local drive which appeared in the browser tab was not even the folder with which I'd been working.

What occurred? Why and how are my local files being displayed in a Firefox tab, and has anything been altered or gone missing on my local drive? Thank you for any help!

Since the download of 89.01, my drop down menus on some features will not stay visible. They flicker on, and off.... gone. This happens on my search engine toolbar, plus on other sites that have a drop down menu fields for saved information. It works for for the main FF menu's drop down options across the top (i.e. File, Edit, View, History< bookmarks, Tools, Help).

I can occasionally cheat it by holding the left mouse button down and dragging it to where the drop down menu flickered for a brief nanosecond, but it often takes 3-4 times to get it to stay visible and select an option.

Additionally it seems to affect a few other features, such as when I hit the hold down the CTRL button, the window zooms/resizes larger. huh? That's a real pain in the butt when using copy/paste short cuts.

I've tried refreshing FF, checked settings. I have no add ons. Standard theme. Note: Windows 10, Version 10.0.19041 Building 19041, FF version 89.01 64bit, HP Desktop computer, Model 510-p020.

FF 88 is still on my HP laptop, and I don't have an issue with that computer or FF version. You won't find me updating that until this is sorted out. This all showed up with FF 89. At this point I'm wanting to find FF 88 to reinstall, but can't find a download for that except for 3rd party sites, and I'm not going there.

Anyone else experiencing this? And is there a solution I'm missing, or a fix on the horizon? Thank you so much for your assistance.

The Firefox is portable and I was able to install add-ons in the past.

Hello, The accordion element we use in application has aria-label and aria-expanded set as per spec but during voice over in Mac Firefox does not say "Expanded" or "Collapsed". It works as expected in Chrome and Safari.

Please see the screen shots. Chrome and Firefox on the same Google site - https://workspace.google.com/marketplace?pann=ogb.

Chrome identifies the Expanded and Collapsed state but Firefox does not and no event changes are captured on click.

The Google search box below the Firefox logo on the Firefox homepage is no longer working. The cursor sits in the box, but as soon as I type anything, it appears in the address bar at the top of the screen, not in the 'G' box. I have tried Refreshing Firefox, and Clearing Startup Cache, changed the Search Bar in Search Settings, to no avail.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm running Windows 10 and have experienced multiple, repeated stopcode violations resulting in the blue screen and reboot (or sometimes requiring hard shutdown and reboot). I've kept close records of programs and peripherals, and the only constant I can find is Firefox. Typically I see it with I'm exploring something in Firefox (ironically it just occurred while typing this). I've taken the computer to the shop a couple of times, and they've stressed it over multiple days and can't duplicate it. I wonder about the interaction of internet fluctuations and Firefox. I'm wondering if my motherboard is failing, though it's fairly new. Any help I can get on this would be very welcome! Thank you!

Hi,

Just got version 89.0 installed. And I totally don't like what happened to the tabs. They are visually disconnected from the page they belong to and transformed to some kind of buttons (at least when selected. When not slected only the caption is visible) . I cannot even imagine why such a useless change is done, but in terms of UI design this is not a good step. It makes things less clear.

I would like to have to old tabs back, but cannot find a theme which can do this.

Is there a setting with which I can set to old tabstyle back?

Thnx

Hi all,

Little issue with Firefox that isn't a glitch, but it's something that annoys me and I am curious if I can fix it!

I have two monitors....a 22" monitor and a 7" mini-monitor. The large monitor is my main for everything and I use the little one for chat windows and watching Youtube as I work, etc.

I usually have a chat window from a certain website open on my mini monitor and all my other tabs open on my main monitor in Firefox, but I've noticed that if I click a link in Discord, or in an email in Thunderbird, etc, the link opens in the window on my second mini monitor and I then have to move it to my main monitor....is there any way to make a open window the 'default' window in Firefox so that clicking a link would open that link in a tab on my main monitor instead...?

Thanks!

Sometimes my computer crashes after starting Firefox for the first time each day. Once the restart completes I don't have problems for the rest of the day.

In Facebook I find I suddenly can't attach image or links to a post. I remove them and the post button becomes active again but even if I try to edit the post after with an attachment the button is blue but is not clickable. When I go to another browser everything works just fine.

One dashboard I use for my business now loads without any content on the page but it loads perfectly fine in another browser. All of these problems started with this newer version of Firefox.

Is there some setting I need to adjust, should I roll back or is it time to move on?
