I've just tried to save something from firefox on linux(Manjaro KDE) and was baffled that there doesn't seem to be a way to manually enter the path and navigate to it in the save dialog. In addition to that, there are many locations missing and I can't seem to find a way to add new custom or favorites ones either.

All that combined means it was impossible to save my file directly to a network location, which is something I very often need to do. It just seems insane for such a basic feature to be missing and I've found a 4 years old thread about it meaning nothing has been done to fix this since? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1279125

The only way I can see would be to mount the network path(not a good solution for one offs) and navigate to it(a symlink can make it closer to one of the existing shortcut but still annoyingly require more clicks) every time but that's very tedious since most of my saving is on a specific server drive.

Often, when I go to a website with a store, a website called "coupon2deal" (coupontodeal.com) will pop up. It will be at the beginning of my list of tabs, and it will have a miniature tab with no exit button (I need to right-click it to exit). I believe this may have started after I installed the Honey extension, a similar service, but it has not gone away after uninstalling Honey. I tried blocking the site, but the tab still pops up, just with the website blocked.

Dear Firefox Support Team,

I hope this message finds you well. I'm Dr. Sobya owner of the sobya's skincare website. I'm seeking clarification on Firefox's password management security, considering the prevalent practice of users saving passwords for convenience. I'm keen to know if Firefox has robust measures in place to safeguard sensitive information, addressing potential risks similar to those raised about other browsers like Chrome. Given our skincare focus and the trust our users place in us, assuring the safety of their credentials is paramount. A detailed response on Firefox's security protocols would not only alleviate user concerns but also enhance trust and credibility for our platform. I appreciate your prompt attention to this matter and look forward to your insights.

Best regards, Dr. Sobya

I want everything on my drive only. Not on cloud thru One Drive. I have tried searching but everything I find in incorrect. For example PC settings one drive etc. I can't find anything that is correct for instructions. I don't even see anything that says as a one drive option. My next question is then what happens to everything that has one drive in the path where do they go? I don't want my local information saved anywhere other than my computer not a cloud somewhere. Is this something you can direct me to where I can solve this? Thanks

If I right click on an iframe when browsing in a container tab, and select "This Frame -> Open in New Tab", the new tab is not in the same container as the source tab. In fact it is not in any container.

Whereas when middle-clicking on a normal link to open it in a new tab, the new tab is in the same container as the source tab.

Is this a bug? Seems like a bug to me. Surely we would want the new tab to use the same container as the source tab?

Hi , I often download photos from Firefox by topic to make videos. Is there any software or application on Firefox that can help me pre-name the image ?

For example: I'm looking for pictures of Trees and Sea

when I click to save image as for Sea images, it often gives random names and I end up having to rename the images to Sea-0001, Sea-0002

if a photo named Thailandbay-34636734-45747457

Therefore, my usual way is to write Sea- and copy the text

and when I save a photo when click to save image as, I will change the name in Hud , I paste it and it becomes

Sea-Thailandbay-34636734-45747457

and in my work file I'll sort the photos by name

So , is there any application on Firefox that allows me to preset the word Sea- ? That means every time I click save image as, the system will automatically name it Sea-Thailandbay-34636734-45747457

Thank you

I have had no trouble using Firefox for many years and am able to access all/any websites excepting for one which upto a few months ago I had no trouble with. The one that I am unable to access is

  https://www.scc-online.org 

and all I get is the "The connection has timed out.." comment on an otherwise blank screen. I have contacted the webmaster who says that I am the only one with this problem. My neighbour who uses MS Edge has no trouble in displaying the website. He uses the same ISP as I do but uses Windows 11.

The webmaster says that it might be that I am using Windows 7 64bit and that Firefox cannot handle this particular website. Alternatively he suggested that my ISP was the cause of the problem although I have been using the current ISP for over 20 years and have never had this type of problem.

I have three computers all with Windows 7 and Firefox and they all have the same problem.

Is there any help available for me as the information on the "website" is important and I do not wish to have to go to my neighbour to view the website?

I'm trying Firefox again after many years in the Edgy wilderness. In Firefox in Windows, you used to be able to specify where your bookmarks were located. I store all my files (documents, spreadsheets, etc) in a complex structure on my C drive and, ideally, I should be able to store my Firefox bookmarks in the same structure. It just doesn't make sense to store the bookmarks in a separate location. I'm pretty sure you used to be able to do this by specifying the root of the bookmarks structure as c:/Documents, but I can't see how to do it in the current version.

https://Website.com/P/-this-site-doesnt-exist--68290.html or https://Website.com/P/-this-is-also-an-example--34846.html


I want Firefox to automatically delete "-this-site-doesnt-exist-" or "-this-is-also-an-example-" whenever i open any of them. So opening them would instead open:

I had to Restart/Refresh Firefox because I lost my dropdown menus and then the Google Search bar in the right-hand corner disappeared. Somehow I got it to reappear but it's too small. I followed steps in several different posts and can't get Google Search Bar to widen. 1. I placed the mouse pointer between the search bar and the address bar and nothing happened. 2. The following didn't work for me because I can't find the “Use Small Icons” box: "Click the “View” tab on the program menu and choose “Toolbars.” Select “Customize” from the fly-out menu and a “Customize” toolbar screen loads. Deselect the “Use Small Icons” box and click “Done” to enlarge the icons on the Firefox toolbar." I attached a screenshot of what FF Browser looks like.

I recently purchased a new laptop and am now using Windows 11 instead of 10. Every time (2 months now) I sign into my online banking, I am required to do 2 step authentication as I get a message from Firefox saying I am signing in from a new device. I tried signing in from Microsoft Edge and after getting the 2 step authentication the first time, it recognized the device the 2nd time. I also deleted all the cookies and cache and that did not resolve the issue either. It's apparent it's an issue with Firefox. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Just downloaded Firefox a day ago; since a friend told me that its better than Edge. It seemed fine at first and then went and looked at task manager. It's using way more memory than Edge. Firefox has 19 separate tasks running totaling to ~1,500 MB. I need to know what I can do to lower it. My friend made it sound like Firefox was way less memory intensive. I don't even keep 10 tabs open at a time. Any help would be appreciated.
