Disable automatic downloading of files without confirmation

Firefox starts downloading files immediately before confirming download dialog. In other words when you trigger a download firefox automatically starts the download process even if you do not select open or save from the pop-up dialog window. This behavior can be observed within Developer tools > network, or through system network statistics, or when you actually start the download it starts from a nonzero file size value.

Is it possible to disable this 'auto download in background' feature? Considering my connection speed & data cap I would rather prefer not to have this feature because it uses so much junk data for things I decided not to download. I tried searching about:config page but could not find a relevant parameter and did not want to break the browser by messing around.

If this has been discussed before could somebody point me to right direction? I am using version 61 by the way.

Thank you in advance for your help.

I am trying to turn off my cache settings.

The instructiuons given tell us to set 'network.http.use-cache in about:config.

I have tried that, and that Preference name no longer exists.

How is this achieved?

I need this for Automation Testing. Currently, cached data casuses tests to fail.

I switched to firefox because Chrome is clunky, Edge is Edge and Opera doesn't support Truekey. So far I've liked everything, but I've had one real bad problem. I always use icon only bookmarks, because I don't like the text there. I've had the problem of the site not getting thumbnails for many sites, and it doesn't seem like there is any way to upload them. I'd really like it if there was a way to do this. Thanks.

I have been looking at using MEGA as an alternative platform for cloud storage & sharing files. MEGA also offer a browser extension for Firefox which is available here: https://mega.nz/extensions

What I wanted to know is if this extension is available to download from Firefox Add-ons, if it is not can anyone tell me if it is safe to install from mega.nz

I would much sooner install it from Firefox Add-ons if possible.

Many thanks for listening and for any advice that anyone can offer.

I have been using Firefox as my default application to open PDF files and everything worked correctly until recently. Now when I open a PDF, the file opens a blank browser tab and continues to open more blank tabs until I close Firefox to stop more tabs from opening.

I have restarted Firefox in safe mode and get the same results.

What can I do to fix this?

Attempting to access certain features on the site of a bank in another country, I downloaded a shady program the bank said was required to perform transactions. The program installed a some suspicious drivers that appeared to monitor Internet communications, and modified my Firefox certificates.

Luckily I had a recent restore point that appears to have removed the application and drivers from the system. But my Firefox installation still contains a certificate authority with a name related to the application.

How can I reset all the certificate authorities in my Firefox installation to only those that Firefox provides in the official installer?

Are the certificate authorities stored at the Firefox level, or at the user profile level?

Finally if all else fails, if I uninstall and reinstall Firefox will this reset the certificate authorities, or are they stored with my user profile?

Will uninstalling Firefox remove my user profile? If I reinstall Firefox will it find my pre-existing user profile automatically?

I have updated the favicon on a client site and yet my Firefox bookmark still shows the old favicon and will not update to the new one. I've cleared history and cache, deleted and re-bookmarked - all to no avail. One forum suggested an add on but the one they suggested isn't compatible with the latest version of Firefox, which I have.

Any ideas?

Hello, today i noticed that when Firefox is stared it forms a connection to 72.21.91.29. The way i found this out was by running netstat -o, taking the process ID, and the comparing that number to task manger, its Firefox. The extensions installed are HTTPS everywhere and ublock orgin. The Firefox version is 61.0.2, as some background i noticed this problem when i had recently installed HTTPs everywhere on a new machine. Is this normal?, is anyone else seeing this connection with HTTPS everywhere?
