Hi community,

I have a problem I couldn't find any answers for. My settings are set to "always ask where to save files". (Screenshot 1)

If I save a file I get the Save As dialog (Screenshot 2). I select a folder and click on Save. The file always ends up in my download folder (Screenshot 3). In some cases even if I change the file name it gets ignored as you can see in the third screenshot with the second file from the top.

The setting in options is totally ignore, files are always saved into the download folder under my profile.

Firefox Version 82.0 (64-bit) on Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.19041 Build 19041

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank s

Peter

Firefox version 82.0.2 (64-bit) I can no longer use Firefox to view Facebook. Within minutes Firefox slows down and no longer responds. I had a similar problem previously with some builds of Firefox but not this bad. Seems like the problem is fixed in one build and then re broken in a newer build. I even get a warning from Firefox that the page is slowing down Firefox. Never seen this before 82.0.2 (64-bit). I can use Chrome, Edge or Opera just fine. The trouble is I'm a Firefox user and have been since the beta builds back in the stone age. Anyone else have this problem.

Thanks

i have tried every about:config option there is on google and i still can't disable the expanding URL bar (where once you've entered a asearch, heading back to the bar expands a menu on the right side with a privacy icon, a drop down menu, a pocket icon, and the bookmark icon). very irritating.

i have seen options regarding the userChrome file but i'm inexperienced and probably messing something up.

any help would be much appreciated.

Hello

I'd like to ask you to help me disable a keyboard shortcut. I have CoolerMaster masterkeys keyboard and it has Play/Pause key that can be used by clicking Fn + Insert. Before the last update the function worked as it should - when I was listening to music using either Spotify or Foobar and used the play/pause key, it only had effect on those applications (even though I had Firefox open).

Now, since last update, the shortcut also has effect on Firefox - for example I'm listening to music with Foobar and have a Youtube tab in Firefox with a video stopped and when I use the shortcut - play/pause is done on both of the applications - Foobar and Firefox. It is really annoying and unwanted behavior.

I'm not sure if it has something to do with Firefox. But maybe there is some kind of configuration that can be applied to mitigate this behavior?

I'm using Windows 10, just so you know.

Thank you,

When signing in to Spotify, Firefox asked me if I wanted to log in using info from my Chrome browser. I use them separately as Firefox is personal and Chrome is for school. After doing this I accepted a few popups that I didn't read (because I'm stupid) and now all my Firefox bookmarks are gone and have been replaced with bookmarks that I have on Chrome. This is a massive inconvenience as I need the bookmarks I have lost. I'm also concerned about what else has changed. I went into settings to try and figure out if I could find anything there but I didn't except for turning off sync, but I'm pretty sure that's only for Firefox internally. If there is any way to end whatever the linkup is between Chrome and Firefox and recover my old bookmarks (and whatever else may have changed)?

I'm using 83.0b6 (64-bit) with both an address bar and search bar. Recently, if I type a g into the address bar the second suggestion is "search with google directly from the address bar. Typing an a does the same thing for amazon. Search suggestions are turned off. Top sites are unchecked in the address bar settings. All Firefox home content is unchecked in settings.

Is it possible to remove these "search with" suggestions from the address bar drop down? Thanks.

I did a browser refresh, and when it was done, almost everything it was supposed to save was gone. "Firefox will save these items:

   Bookmarks
   Browsing and download history
   Passwords
   Cookies
   Web form auto-fill information
   Personal dictionary "

Bookmarks, gone. Home tabs, gone. Browsing and download history, gone. Cookies: spotty. Autofill; partly missing.

And a new tab is now completely blank (see attached image). I thought it might repopulate itself, but nope. Just blank.

All my home tabs were wiped, and I was able to put them back. But this outcome was unexpected. Some places I had to log back into; some I did not.

So I feel like I am now dealing with a broken browser, and not sure what to do about it. At least the buggy hangups and crashes seem to be fixed. Maybe.

edit: Also noticed I cannot make new bookmarks. Halp....

I saw under 'what's new' a item about media controls. Unfortunately for me, it is full of jargon, initials, and not much in the way of plain English. As an unsophisticated user, I can not understand the explanation. Is there some source of clear explanation of what it does and how it does it, and what you might have to do to use it or not?

I have a windows 10 pc, using Firefox, with both a wired and wireless printer. When I go to print from various web sites, I get a print window pop up. It shows a full size page output. Depending upon the site, the actual print output size varies from about 30 percent of the paper size to more than 100%, leaving some of the page overflowing. For example, when I go to print a Washington post crossword puzzle, it properly fills the page, without changing any setting, if I go to print the Wall Street Journal puzzle, it appears to be reduced in size by more than half.

If I close the pop up, and open the Firefox menu and click on the print icon, I get a page which shows the item to be printed, and I note that the scale option is set to 70%. This apparently works fine for the WAPO puzzle, but renders the puzzle too small for the WSJ. To get the WSJ puzzle full size, I have to change the scale option to 150%, which, of course, renders the output much to large. Another site requires a 100% scale option to produce the proper size output.

I can find no way on the pop up print control to change the scale option or any way to make all of these sites print the proper size without changing the scale option.
