After installing the beta FF 98.0b3 in order to work around the Webroot problem currently going on with v97, I've noticed that whenever I download something, the download popup window stays active until I click on something. I don't want to remove the download button because I want to monitor download progress, and at times, I DO want to look at specific downloads from time to time. But the fact that the window automatically pops up and stays there until I click on something is annoying.

I saw similar posts several years old about older versions which don't apply now.

So, is there a way to disable this thing without completely removing the download progress indicator from my toolbar?

Thanks again for the help!

In the latest Firefox update a very annoying new "feature" arrived. When you download something, an automatic drop down menu appears in the top toolbar and stays there until the file is being downloaded and closed after some seconds after the download is finished. You can click of course somewhere to make it vanish.

This is TOO ANNOYING. It also covers a portion of the main page. How can i disable this behavior and return to the old one where nothing appears automatically?

Background: I am on the Beta track, currently running 98.0b4 on Mac OSX 11.6.1, until kinks are worked out of Monterey.

Issue: One of the latest FF upgrades has killed my ability to login to Netflix. I get an orange popup field stating "Incorrect password. Please try again or you can reset your password." The password is fine, as I'm able to login using my backup browsers, Safari and Vivaldi. The issue persists when I try to log in using a private window that doesn't allow any add-ons, so I don't see that as the issue.

Firefox is still my preferred and default browser, so I'd like to see this resolved before.

Sometimes when starting Firefox ("developer edition", running on Ubuntu 20.04, Gnome shell, X11 windowing system) it appears 80% full screen -ish, but actually the window is full screen size - you just can't see it. It flashes really fast, and doesn't repaint correctly. It's very hard to get rid of it as you're never sure what you're clicking on.

Restarting it a few times and I get lucky and it works. I think this problem has gotten worse over the last few months.

I believe it might be something to do with the anti fingerprinting, but I'm not sure. It's making it unusable for several friends, but I'm a bit more stubborn so I'm looking for a fix.

How do I change the font size of Firefox's headers elements: menu, tabs, bookmark toolbar, bookmark manager without changing the font across Mac iOS or otherwise messing up the other settings?

I've searched this question and found one answer archived that did not really fix the problem. I'm looking for an extension or a setting integrated in FF, not a font size change in Mac iOS (Monterey) or one that changes the font in the browser pages.

Love FF and Mozilla and all the volunteers who make my entire work day so easy with great, secure, handsome products! I'm a devoted fan. Thank you!

Hello Mozilla Support!

I just installed Firefox 98.0 this morning. I was very surprised to discover that I can no longer view an attachment in Firefox or open an attachment without also downloading it.

If you can, please ask the developers to reinstate the Download Attachment options to "Open with Firefox" and "Open with [select the program]" without automatically downloading every attachment.

Thank you!

-Steve

I was extremely disappointed to be forced to view a full-page advertisement for Disney when I started Firefox this morning. How can I ensure that this NEVER happens again?

I have been a dedicated Mozilla user for over 15 years, tolerating Firefox's many bugs and rapid decline in overall quality the last several years, but if I get another ad like this I have absolutely no reason to continue using Firefox and will start using Chrome immediately. I might as well just give all my info to Google if the alternative is to be forced to not only view ads, but view ads from companies such as Disney. This crosses a line and is not acceptable.

Thanks

In the new version, the Downloads panel automatically opens whenever I save/download a file.

The problem... it STAYS open.

How can I turn it off? I already know where and how to check on my downloaded files. I do not need to see the downloads panel pop up every time I save a file. And I definitely do not need or want it to stay open, causing yet another need for a mouse click to make it go away.

I've just suddenly had this problem starting today: downloading files through the browser is now automatically sending them to my computer's Downloads folder, even though I have my download settings set to 'Always ask you where to save files'. I double-checked to see if my settings had been reset by the update (they had not), and I even unselected and reselected the option to see if that helped anything (it didn't).

Hello there,

I am trying to better myself in terms of security do's and don'ts and one thing I don't understand

The primary password is for encrypting/guarding the files which store my logins, correct?

After unlocking with my primary password the files are no longer encrypted/guarded and I can use my logins but another party could snatch them as well?

Now here is the thing, I thought there was a setting in about:config as default so the password timeouts after 15 minutes, I looked and it was there and I didnt touch it and I dont use any extensions which tamper with sessions or passwords

But I don't have to retype my primary password the whole day normally, only when I close and reopen Firefox? How can it still have access to my logins all day? And is that bad like are all my logins unencrypted in my RAM or something?

Thank you for your time and for reading

Greetings- I was using my browser (single window, three open tabs) and I checked task manager - Firefox has several concurrent processes running and I don't understand. I understand the sandbox and one process having several child processes, but this I believe is suspect.

I also noticed that in the "Security at a glance" window in Win11, my icons have changed - there's a weird white box on most of the security icons. I'm thinking I may be under some sort of virus/trojan, etc., yet I've ran antivirus even in prior to boot and got nothing
