I want to download rather than play an .wmv file. I cannot find where the setting is that causes firefox to play the file rather than download it.

Additionally my firefox is apparently set to let my organization control my settings. I have not organization even though this appears to be limiting what I can do with some settings. how do I change this?

I'm not sure whether it happens at current version of Firefox or already happened previously, but if you close your Firefox main window without closing your Private window first, all your session tabs will be lost when we launch Firefox again. Is there any way to recover my previous tabs?

"Open previous windows and tabs on startup" doesn't seem to work for me - I check off the right box in Settings. (see attached file) but it doesn't work. I use Firefox as a dedicated app for one project, so would like it to open right at the four pages I always use.

Odd, because this USED to work, but has stopped doing so in the last week.

Laptop using Windows 11 64.

I downloaded the newest version, also signed in and out, but no help.

Thanks.

The option to restore tabs and windows is no longer working for me. I normally have a dozen tabs I work thru every day. Yesterday when I shutdown Firefox, all those tabs were there. Today when I open Firefox it only had to single Firefox default homepage. Checking under History there is no option to restore previous tabs, and the recently closed tabs was empty.

To test, I opened an IMDB page and pinned it. I then went to Wikipedia. This gave me a pinned and unpinned tab. I shutdown Firefox via the "X" to close the window. When I restarted Firefox there was only the default homepage. Neither IMDB nor Wikipedia showed up under recently closed tabs and no option to restore the previous session was available.

I have operated Firefox this way for several years. I don't know why this behavior is no longer being supported.

This problem just occurred for the first time. I contacted the website and they say I need to update the certificate in firefox. How do I do this?

Thank You

Dear Reader:

HELLLLLLLP!

I loaded Firefox yesterday using Firefox Installer.exe

The installer loaded to my laptop with Desktop Icon Target "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" This has my bookmarks and personalizations, and is synched with the Firefox on my Tower computer in another room

Now my laptop has another Destop Icon Target "C:\Users\FEDER\AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" This firefox browser is new and has none of my bookmarks and personalzations. It is not synched.

My Apps shows only 1 Firefox installed, and it will not uninstall.

How do I remove both of these firefox browsers, remove firefox from Installed apps, so I can load a clean version?

This is frustrating.

We have an intranet site that works fine in Chrome and Edge, but does not load at all in Firefox. In Firefox, an authentication dialog appears, but after entering correct credentials, it just re-shows the same authentication dialog after a few seconds. This repeats indefinitely. There is no useful info (and pretty much no info of any kind) in the dev tools. I have tried Firefox in safe mode, with no changes to the behavior.

What steps can I try to debug this problem?
