Hi all, For years, I have used Firefox to download audiobooks from Audible.com. I go to Audible.com, open my library, click download, and then a pop up shows the .aax file I'm going to download. The problem - In the past week, the pop up window now shows that I'm about to download a .mp4 file. That doesn't play nice with Apple Books or my iPhone. I've called Audible several times, but they haven't been able to help. If I use Safari, the .aax file is downloaded correctly. This is a Firefox issue. Any ideas here?

Thanks for your time and help! --Scott

How to disable First party cookie isolation for one site.

I have an exstention that talks with the site, but it cant talk to it unless I have first party cookie isolation disabled. How can I disable it for one site only?

Also, what is the difference between not having first party cookie isolation and having it on.

Constant Crashing on Mac OS – Little hope for solution

This is the 3rd time I've posted here about crashing in the last month or so. I really do apologize for having to post again but I simply haven’t gotten to a solution. I really need to continue using Firefox as all the other browsers are significantly slower in my experience and I'm in the browser around-the-clock. I’d be willing to pay for customer support from Mozilla but they do not provide any type of support directly as most of you probably know.

Please review this link here to see all the steps I have already taken to troubleshoot the crashes.

I really thought that the crash reports I had would help me pinpoint the issue but it appears as though they’re not very helpful for those who can interpret them. If that’s not the case, I greatly appreciate it if anybody can dig through them to uncover some insights related to why I may be having frequent crashes (I'm willing to pay).

Crash ID from a recent crash: bp-058c91cd-4b9c-46d1-bd12-640ba0210928

Thank you so much for any help.

HiDPI Screenshots Too Big

I regularly capture screenshots of pages at 1440 x 900 on a 5K iMac. When I paste these images somewhere they appear as 2880 x 1800.

I've tried messing around with the settings, but can't seem to find a way to make the final image 1440 x 900. Setting the DPR only seems to work if it's at 2. If it's at 1, the screen shot is the right dimension, but is missing 75% of the image.

Even though I'm on a HiDPI screen, I would love to be able to capture a 1440 x 900 screen and have the image actually end up being 1440 x 900. Is there a trick to this?

Every time I shut down my computer, Firefox needs to download all over again when I power up my computer. I need to sign in and start the sync all over again. After I customize my bookmarks on Firefox, these do not remain stable once I power up the computer and open up the Firefox App again. It always seems like it's downloading the app for the first time. Syncing is a mess. Is there any way I can keep this application stable even after I shut off and power up the computer again?

How to Advise Mozilla that Capricious Changes to FireFox Interface are Unwelcome!

Perhaps some like change for its own sake. Many just want to use a browser to get work done.

I am Reticent to Upgrade FireFox because I now expect something To Change, To Break, I don't want the look and feel to change when I want to get work done! I want security fixes but broken features and a rearranged interface hinders the use of a browser.

Continuity is key to smooth use of a Browser. Moving menus, changing tabs, rearranging features, dumbing down menu titles is most unwelcome.

I particularly don't want browser interface changes intended for a tablet or pad for use on a desktop or laptop computer.

Changes to the Appearance should be OPT IN not OPT OUT.

Got the "new & improved" version 93, and it doesn't seem so improved. I can barely write this, as it keeps stopping and starting, and acts like we're underwater! It's using about 15GBs of RAM, and while I still have plenty on-hand, it's barely functioning! Come one, what's going on, will this browser ever just work?

Hello, Firefox has begun refusing to connect to the server after I clear the cache and cookies. This is new as I usually clear everything several times while shopping or browsing commercial sites to prevent tracking. It has never been an issue until recently. I've also noticed that clearing cache/cookies no longer actually clears them - they remain visible as a number on the preferences page as well as listed in the about:cache list - even after I've cleared them using the drop down box from the menu bar History tab. This is definitely a bug.

I've had to clear everything, shut down Firefox, then RESTART! the entire computer to get Firefox to load once I manage to clear everything. Can anyone explain what is happening without telling me, "there's no need to clear the cache and cookies mid-sesh - it will clear when you close Firefox". I don't want, for example, youtube tracking my browsing after I watch a video then leave their site. I have a vpn/ghostery/adblock etc so it may not technically be necessary but I feel safer when I manually remove them. This used to be easily possible. What has changed? Thank you.

Hello,

in previous versions of firefox I could see the filename and the average download speed, but also the name of the download-websites in the download window.

Now I can see this names only after downloads have finished.

Is this my mistake in Firefox-preferences or do I need an add-on for firefox?

Or is this not longer possible? Yes, this will be pure luxury, but very helpful.

Now I use 69.0.3 with macOS 10.14.6

Greetings from Germany and thanks in advandce
