Whenever I try to download anything, it automatically fails. The problem just started recently and I don't know what could have caused it because I haven't done anything that could affect downloads to my knowledge. Things I've already tried are

  • Reinstalling firefox (including full uninstall via "Revo Uninstaller"
  • Updating firefox to the latest version (127)
  • Disabled all firewalls
  • Chose the save location
  • Disabled all parental controls in windows
  • Chose the "don't enable HTTPS mode" (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1414064)
  • Tried firefox & windows safe mode (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1442742)
  • Chose a different save location inside my computer (a folder other than downloads)
  • Cleared download history
  • Ran a chkdsk on windows

The thing is that everthing else of firefox works (browsing the web, watching videos, etc), it's only the downloads. It's also not a computer problem I think because I can download on other browsers (such as chrome and pale moon). Any help asap is appreciated.

Development: Very specific problem with getting the caret position in a contenteditable div

Hello, I'm a web developer. I'm using the Firefox Developer Edition and currently working on a project that requires caret manipulation. I have this function right here that fetches the caret's client rect: ``` function getCaretRect(): DOMRect | null {

 const sel = window.getSelection()
 if (!sel || sel.rangeCount === 0) return null
 const range = sel.getRangeAt(0)
 const rects = range.getClientRects()
 if (rects.length === 0) return null
 return rects[0]

} ``` Here is where the issue arises. Suppose I have a contenteditable div with two line breaks (no new lines), and the second line is smaller than the first one. If the caret is positioned somewhere that is further than the end of the second line, and I press the down arrow key, then left, for some reason the caret rect I get has all values set to zero, like this: `{ x: 0, y: 0, width: 0, height: 0, top: 0, right: 0, bottom: 0, left: 0 }` I will add an image to explain further.

I don't have this issue on Chromium based browsers, but cross browser support is important for me.

There is one more issue to do with caret manipulation which is how contenteditable divs are handled. On a Chromium based browser, if I have a parent div that's contenteditable, then another div that's not contenteditable (contenteditable="false" explicitly), then two children divs which are both contenteditable (or more), I can navigate through the divs freely using the arrow keys and focus is managed better alongside event handlers. This is not present on Firefox, however.

If this is not the right place to ask for help then please guide me where is more suitable.

Hi,

my firefox does not load any webpage no matter what Firefox profile I am using (created a new one for tests). I have a Win10 pc with Avast and Comodo installed, the system with the mentioned software and multiple different Firefox profiles was running since several years without problems.

A month ago I had the same issue with Firefox 126, which I guess was caused by a windows update, where I had trouble getting it installed. But after this (I had to increase the system reserved partition) Firefox was running without any problmes like before ...

Now no pages kan be load and always the crash monitor pops up.

Several months ago, I couldn't log in to my Yahoo email accounts. For reasons yet to be explained, the two step verification ended up with a message saying they were having trouble, and try again later. No amount of waiting for later worked.

Maybe what I'm asking about now is unrelated, but yesterday I tried again. When I go here Yahoo | Mail, Weather, Search, Politics, News, Finance, Sports , and select either of the links

link text

I am directed here link text

link text

Instead of here (these came from Chrome)

Welcome to Yahoo Mail

https://i.postimg.cc/c45Qp77L/yahoo5.jpg

When I use that url in Firefox, I am taken here

link text

If I try to add a Yahoo account in that situation, it becomes clear that IS only for adding other other AT&T accounts.

I tried using about:support - Troubleshooting Information to clear the startup cache, and in safe mode, but it did not help.

I talked to ATT&T. They have been having these sorts of Firefox related problems for months now, which they have reported to Mozilla month ago (which confirms my past troubles as well), but for whatever reason Mozilla hasn't acted on it.

But here is the weird part for me. Aside from my main profile, I have a Firefox "basic" profile. It has no addons, but It has basically the same settings with my main profile, and, because it hasn't been updated in a while, I believe it has most of the same about:config tweaks as well.

In that profile, It 'Yahoo works '. What could constitute a difference between this starter profile and one that's running in safe mode to create this problem. Can you think of an about:config tweak that could be responsible for all this?

Do we have any idea whats causing this.

Good day!

After the last firefox update, there was a change in the way screenshots are saved. Specifically, the file names are the same, only for some pages they create them uniquely as it was before. I am sending an example of a name (Screenshot 2024-06-17 a[...]) that is the same for different screenshots and therefore I always have to rename it. Before the update, this never happened, each screenshot had a unique file name, so it was saved without the need to enter a file name.

I use this feature very often and i find it very annoying to create file name and it is very impractical and time consuming. Can it be set somewhere? Or what should I do. I really like this function of firefox and I don't use another browser because of it. I don't even plan to, because I think it's the best browser and has a lot of great features. This is one of them and I'm really disappointed that it got worse with the update.

Hello,

I was editing a fillable PDF document in Firefox, which I had saved repeatedly (saved over existing file) as I was making changes.

After a crash, I selected "recover session" and the document was open but was now empty. Another document I was editing, which was not open in Firefox but was being saved to a separate file, did not experience the loss of data entries.

Would anyone happen to know the reason for this issue and whether there is any way to recover the data?

Thank you.

I using an ASIS Latop model X756U running the Windows 10 Operating System. Firefox is my default browser.

I installed the Opt-Out Google Analytics Extension on 9 June 2024. The intent was identify which of my applications are using Google Analytics by testing them and seeing which ones were broken.

Having done that I removed the Opt-Out Google Analytics Extension from the Firefox Extension list.

Unfortunately the extension remains active and continues to disrupt my browsing experience.

How do I remove this extension permanently?
