How do I change my "saved" email Address in your browser? It currently has my very old email address: [edited email from public] @cox.net. Many websites display that old setting associated with my info/reply. In my canned responses, I can change/update my name, phone #, etc....but cannot repeat cannot change the email address. The block displays: [edited email from public] @cox.net. I have went to settings, privacy & security, etc in your application to search how I can update this Old Email Address. Your application always sends email to my correct address: [edited email from public] @gmail.com but when I reply to the site/request my response/page displays the old incorrect email. Please Please advise how I can correct this severe problem. It prevents me from donating to viable causes/programs because my reply lists my incorrect email address.....BTW I will be most most happy to donate to you guys if we can get this error corrected. Thank You in advance for our help. Wayne Bostic, [removed phone# from public], [removed email from public]

I don't want the pdf to save to disk without my will when I open a pdf file from any website. Fire Fox saves the file first, then opens it for reading. How to change it? I want to read the pdf first and then decide what to do with it. This works similarly in Edge. FF is my main browser, I wouldn't want to change that, but I have too much garbage on my disk. every pdf is saved first, completely unnecessary.

Firefox 100 Overrides Disable of "Open previous windows and tabs"

I recently installed Firefox 100 on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (a major leap from previously installed Firefox 56).

No major squawks initially, everything was more or less as expected, but then I started to notice anomalies in the designation of visited vs. unvisited links, and possibly with clearing of history in general (see my previous question at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1376052, still unresolved).

I'm now convinced something is definitely wrong with history clearing and/or session restores. One glaring example: Firefox 100 is overriding my choice to uncheck the "Open previous windows and tabs" box in Settings/General. The box will reset to checked after I close/relaunch Firefox, and indeed I've seen it become reset to checked in the same session, without even closing the program!

Moreover, after clearing the history prior to exiting Firefox (Shift-Ctrl-Delete, all history and data boxes checked) and then restarting Firefox, the most recently visited website will often (but not always) be restored. Remarkably, when this happens and I go to Menu/History, it shows (or claims) that history is empty!

I have tried opening About:config and setting browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash to false, it has no effect.

This is very peculiar and disturbing, thanks for any feedback/suggestions.

If I were to employ a VPN, and there for change computers IP address, would it mean I lose my log in's to various web sites that I was logged into before I employed the VPN? Being my computer is now a stranger so to speak to web sites that I visited before hand. Or, do I have it all wrong? Can someone help and explain? Thank you.

It appears that this question has been asked many, many, many times and yet a clear, concise answer hasn't been provided. How do I change my updates from the beat release channel to standard updates? There should be a simple procedure to do this without a lot of unnecessary information in the answer and ultimately no answer to the question.

Why is there now no option to close present tab only when clicking on X. The old (default) warning was excellent. With no warning, clicking the X kills Firefox - and all open tabs. This has lost me hours of work already. i certainly don't want to go down the route of restoring all tabs first. I can't rely on it, for instance, holding all comments made on a form. And for that matter, I wouldn't want that to reinstate a login.

Please can we return to the warning with 2 options Close all tabs and Close current tab only.

Until recently, I resisted allowing updates for Firefox because of the announcements of changes to prevent access to some technical kinds of website which I use. These include the public websites of the Paris Observatory which include useul informational ftp pages with important text, data and software files.

  I did recently allow a Firefox update, and now I find that I am cut off from access to these ftp pages. 
  How can I re-enable access to ftp? If it can't be done in the new version of Firefox, how can I return to an older Firefox version that does allow such access?
