I can ignore Firefox experience being worst from all browsers out there, but when Firefox randomly (delete/crash/bug or whatever) cookies so I have to re-enter everything over and over again I loose my patience.. Enabled cookie and catche deletion. Whitelisted some sites. It work pretty okay. Time after time I open Firefox, boom, all my setings gone. I'd rather use keylogger on steroids Chrome, but don't have to care about every bug in this barely usable browser..

My installation of 32-bit Firefox 102 had been repeatedly crashing, sometimes for no apparent reason. I decided to download the 64-bit version of Firefox 102, uninstalled the 32-bit version, carried out a standard installed and all this appeared successful. I noticed that I was getting a lot of advertisements and remembered that I had had Ghostery installed as an extension in my 32-bit Firefox. I went to the extensions page, selected Ghostery and asked for it to be added. Shortly after that, I got a message that the installation had been aborted because the extension might be corrupt. I tried again and got the same message. I tried another ad blocker, and got the same message with that one; and tried a third with the same result. What is going on? I haven't changed any settings in Firefox since the standard installation, and the extensions were from the Firefox source, so how can the extensions be corrupt? If it isn't corrupt, why isn't Firefox installing it?

The title pretty much describes the problem. Whenever I open a website that plays videos on some page in it automatically, Firefox blocks autoplay only the first time the website is opened. If I navigate through the website to another page that contains videos which the site autoplay as well, Firefox doesn't block the video from being played automatically.

Hello

Is there a way to find previously viewed images somewhere? I was watching an image in the Firefox browser a few days ago and now that I went back to check it again the page had been removed by the user. I assume all images that I´ve viewed has been stored somewhere on my computer? Where can I see these?

The same question goes for webpages. The image was on a webpage that I would like to view again but it was removed along with the image. Can I see whole pages that I´ve previously browsed somewhere?

I know this has been posssible in the past but it was like 10 years ago I last checked.

Thanks!

Firefox created a second Downloads folder/library when it opens a PDF to view in the browser.

file:///C:/Users/Name/Documents/Downloads/NightSkyNotesJan2022OrionDetail.pdf

I seem to remember finding lots of temp pdfs and other files in a temp folder under user/appdata/local or roaming and having to delete this files manually from time to time. Putting the files in an easy to find folder is a good step but my Downloads Library/folder had previously been moved to D:\Downloads via choose new target from the library properties. D drive is an internal HD, C drive is an SSD. Why didn't Firefox just use the existing Downloads library instead of creating a new one on the C drive?

Ideally, if you are viewing a pdf in a Firefox tab it would delete the file if you did not download it so it does not clog up your drives. If I know i want to keep a pdf I would save to my chosen folder and view in Acrobat instead of reading in a browser tab.

I agree with a previous post i saw requesting an option for the user to specify a temp file folder on another drive when viewing pdfs to preserve some life on the SSD boot drive.

This annoying notification on the bottom right keeps popping up everytime I take a screenshot. I've been using computers for the past 17 years, I know how to paste things by now. Even worse, it overlays on other applications and pesters me there for about 10 seconds until I close it. Can this notification be hidden in about config or do I have to find a community add on that does the same thing, but without this stupid notification?

"Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.pinterest.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.pinterest.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the 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.
