I recently had to restore my computer. Doing that I have to get the new firefox which I now have version 102. Updates disabled instantly. I was on version 88. On version 88 this feature was not on it and version 102 now has this feature and I do not like it.

The feature I am talking about is if you open the downloads panel and view the downloads list and right click on one of the downloaded files in list there is now an option to Delete. I accidentlly hit this and thought it was just deleting it from downloads panel. Nope it deletes it from computer permanently, not even to recycle bin. Click Delete its gone for good until download it again.

And this delete option is right above the option remove from history, which I use a lot.

So I want to know how to disable this delete option? Thanks

Evening, all.

It's very rare I ask for help on ANY fora, if I'm honest. I can almost always sort out my own issues, especially with browsers. However, this one has stumped me.

I've noticed that, on any website where user interaction requires use of a microphone, the Linux build of Firefox only ever offers "source_default_name" for choice of microphone. Well, OK; I can see this being fine for the vast majority of folks who use a laptop; the built-in microphone WILL be the "default" microphone, no questions.

My question is this; what do those of us running desktop PCs do about microphone selection, hmm? A desktop PC doesn't HAVE a "built-in, default microphone", does it? By their very nature, any microphone you're going to use with a desktop is going to be an externally plugged-in device. I have three of these; a USB microphone.....a wireless headset, and the twin stereo mikes on a Logitech c920 webcam.

Do I get anything resembling a drop-down list to choose what I want to use? Uh-uh. Firefox - apparently! - doesn't "see" any of them. Not individually. All I ever see is "source_default_name".....

Grrrr...!!

C'mon, guys! Frankly, this is about as much use as a chocolate teapot. Linux, to the best of my knowledge - unlike Windoze - doesn't make 'global' device settings, which every application then uses. It's always been far more fine-grained than that, allowing individual device use on a per-app basis. But that only works if the 'app' in question allows those choices to be made.

Any Chromium-based "clone" - and I use several of these, as I package portable versions for the Puppy Linux community - will give a full drop-down list of every available device it can find. Why can't the Linux builds of Firefox do the same?

I shall be interested to see what, if any, replies I get to this question. It's been bugging me for years...!

Mike.

Lately, when I try to create a desktop shortcut from the Github website, it instead create a folder, with the correct title of the page, and what looks like a link inside, with an abbreviated website name, but is not a shortcut at all.

Example: Try dragging the address bar padlock from this page to your desktop

Welcome to Refined GitHub!

Same thing happens when I try to drag its bookmark to the desktop.

Creating the shortcut from Chrome works properly, so I assume this is a Firefox problem.

I have read all of the other threads about why Gmail will not work in Firefox and I have tried the solutions (although I could not find where to adjust SSL settings in firefox and the link does not take me to the original thread)

I just reinstalled my windows OS and firefox because of other issues. But this means both are in the default state. When I try to load Gmail in firefox it just clocks or does nothing. When I do the same in Microsoft's browser it loads up fine. I have security set to "Standard" I removed HTTPS only mode just in case that was this issue. I have the latest Windows 10 OS and the latest to date Firefox (102.0)

All other sites seem to load fine.

I noticed during a firmware download with the file extension .DAT that Firefox removed the extension. The file was not recognizable during an attempted firmware upgrade afterward. This is a new issue occurring sometime in the past several months, since last firmware update. Firefox preferences are set to download .DAT files. No other settings are listed for that file extension. I verified the issue points toward Firefox by checking the download with another web browser which completed the download with the extension.

So, I've migrated from Chrome to Firefox, and it's great, but I have a couple of issues now. One of them is with web push notifications from Google. First, I had an issue with notifications not showing up at all (or maybe they do show up, but the timeout is short and I miss them), but I've solved that with this in about:config set to tru:

dom.webnotifications.requireinteraction.enabled

Now, notifications do stay on until I click them, but when I click them, all they do is close, disappear. And I'm talking only about YouTube notifications, when I get them from other websites, they work fine, I click on them and the proper link opens.

Any ideas how to solve this?

FF v102.0 MacOS 12.4

Been FF user since the very beginning & user on Mac for 15 years. I installed new FF only days ago on my new iMac 27" Intel i7 machine, runs fine except when I click on an external link like in an email or PDF I expect FF to open up 1 page of that link only as in the past, what I get is 2 pages opening up at the same time, one of the home page & the other of the clicked link. Launching FF direct from app dock is fine & it will launch into my home web URL.

Why is this happening ? Previous version of FF 101.01 on my old iMac i7 runs perfectly.

FF has never done this in the past, it's VERY annoying & can't find an answer for it. Seems like FF has done this before in the past on other versions, but I've never encountered it.

I know FF are usually quick to fix things pear shaped, hoping someone out there has an answer for this now or I simply stop using FF, Safari works fine ;)

hi

I get messages to install new updates that assure me that my open windows will be restored but that is not true. I have done installs and my windows were not restored. I have been careful to make sure that I do it when I get the message assuring me that my windows will be restored and yet again. They are not. I have done what the help section recommends and try to restore them from Settings and History and was not able to. This really sucks. I do lots of research and need to switch back and forth. Mozilla can you do it better? Forcing the update when I am not ready sucks. There has got to be a better way! It just happened again tell me how to fix this please!
