Hello, recently I've been having issues where if misclick anywhere on the title bar (even in the small space between bookmarks) firefox will minimize/restore when I didn't want it too. How do I disable this in about:config?

https://newtab.firefoxchina.cn/newtab/as/activity-stream.html

As shown in the picture, users should be able to change tabs freely on this page. But this caused some problems on my browser. These white tabs cannot be edited, moved or removed by me.

My first two tabs are always blank (even if I try to change it and add a valid URL to it) and other tabs can be changed normally.

When I tried to move a changed normal tab to the first one, I found that my changed tabs became blank and they could not be changed back to normal.

This is very annoying for me. Please help me fix this problem

This is super frustrating. How to use Firefox for development purposes? There should be an option to add exceptions. I even went to settings and added an exception manually to no avail.

I'm going often through pain to use firefox for everything but then there must be a reasonable way to achieve the goals.

Please tell me there is a way to workaround this easily without compromising security of other sites that are being visited.

P.S. I can open same site with adding an exception on chrome.

Hello,

I have checked the box "Always ask you where to save files". It works well most of the time, however, I have faced a case in which it does not. Opening a link to a pdf file directly from google search results, somehow bypasses this option, and starts downloading the pdf automatically, and opens it after download finished. I believe you are aware how dangerous it is to open pdf files directly.

If there is a solution to this, I will be glad to hear from you, as it is very important issue. Thank you beforehand.
