Hi

I use Firefox developer edition. During the latest update Mozilla removed my most loved feature that asked you what you wanted to do with a file before downloading it. I tried to fix this by going into the settings and changing it to always ask for every file type, but many file types are just missing and I am unable to get them to appear. I looked on my other computers and all file types are present there but not on my desktop for some reason. Is there any way to fix this or to get Firefox to ask before downloading again?

Thanks

(I added an img of what the settings look like)

I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

I have been a happy Firefox and Thunderbird used for many years, but the constant unnecessary tweaking and fiddling with the GUI has begun to spoil my user experience. Each update seemed to change something that was working fine and didn't need changing... the last straw was making the on-screen font so small that it was nearly impossible to read.

It took me quite a while to find a way to change the font size and appearance back to something usable. That was when I decided to disable automatic updates. Now, every time I open FF or TB I get a nag screen and this is beyond annoying. There does not appear to be any way to stop this happening outside of doing complicated stuff in the registry that I am not prepared to do.

So basically, I am looking for a recommendation on the best alternative browser and mail app that I can use when I delete FF and TB. Chrome seems to work OK for a browser and although I don't like the GUI, Gmail is probably the logical choice as I use Gmail addresses. I don't need apps that work on phones as I work on a PC, so a simple clear GUI is more important to me than all kinds of clever features that I will never use :)

Cheers... John D

Anyone know why I can't upload a simple small JPEG image to a Mozilla Support forum post?

I click the "Browse..." button under "Add images (optional)" under the box where the post is typed, select the file and click the "Upload" button and it just sits there saying "Uploading Image.jpg" but the image never uploads or attaches to my post.

I have tried from both Firefox (version 96.0) and Safari (version 15.2), but I have the same problem. I can't find any info about accepted file formats and sizes for these forums, but the image is only 478KB, and is a JPEG, so I can't imagine it's too big or an unaccepted format...

I am on macOS version 11.6.2. The image file is NOT locked.

Any info or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I have been trying for hours to get Firefox to allow me to use my webcam in the browser but I have uninstalled my browser, factory reset my laptop, removed my antivirus, gone in the website to allow, tried to find a suss certificate (which I don't want to go deleting anyway because I don't want to delete the wrong thing).

If someone can help me it will be appreciated. If you are going to go into registry keys etc please be clear in your instructions how to get there and fix it because whilst I'm not novice I have autism so my understanding might not be the same as an it person. Thanks

HELLO, Web page seems un-secure. Once open hamburg menu allows drop down and anyone can get my info. I ahd to also remove check mark for master password since annoying. Followed steps to remove and reset master PW but still keep asking every time logged on. References to my ESET that may be the cause. This was never a problem once registered few years back. So why cant I use Firefox to search without it having access to my private info. I should only need to access this when I need. So in the drop down hamburg menu if I go to Privacy and security that is where you should ask for PW or security question. So that you must have a PW to go into security would make sense to me. Other wise you are allowing anyone that may be using my computer and your web page to access my account, SO PLEASE DO NOT REPLY THAT the master password is the way to set this since it does not work properly. Even if I did use master this site is open to anyone. So it seems to be insecure and the web master should change the drop down to offer a PW when in the security and password tab, so that way it a second level pf protection. HOPE TO HEAR BACK and not just get a reply to see the Help section.Thanks Joseph Jan 26 ,2022

In my settings I have enabled that FF asks me where to save files whenever I click on a download or choose 'save as'. This works... until it doesn't. For no reason and at random times Firefox stops asking me where I want to save downloads. It also doesn't download them automatically. It basically ignores any commands to 'save as' or download files like PDFs. The only thing that fixes the problem is restarting FF.

I'm on the latest macOS with the latest FF version, but this has also occurred on previous versions of FF.

Any suggestions?

Hello. Recently I had to reset my Windows 10 because of non-stop "Not reponding" errors both offline and online. That went okay and I was able to re-connect to Firefox 96. But I was unable to find firefox.exe anywhere. My work-around was to copy my Win Apps icon to the taskbar in order to click on it.

The most relevant file I found was this one, which I guess means that FF crashed in the process of being reinstalled: firefox.exe.6892.dmp C:\Windows\old\Users\MyName\AppData\Local\CrashDumps I’m attaching an image that shows the details.

Despite not having a visible firefox.exe, FF works, except that it intermittently fails to fill in forms. When I search for Autofill Forms on the Security page, it is missing. I am a US user and via config tried pasting the autofill forms command and clicked +, but after closing FF, that function was still missing on Security.

So my question is what to do about the hidden firefox.exe and does that have anything to do with the missing autofill functionality?

In advance, thanks very much for your help.

After creating a new Windows User account and switching back to original account, I lost ALL of my Quick Access Bookmarks! Then I did a Bookmark Restore using the most recent saved Bookmark file and I lost around 64,050 bookmarks!!! Now, the latest saved Bookmark file lists 5 items. This is a ridiculous and a very serious issue!!!

What is going on? I spend a lot of time getting important Bookmarks for research, and etc. How can I get all of my Bookmarks back? Apparently, I cannot get them all back. See attached file.
