Previously, with older versions of Firefox, clicking on a wave file would open the wave file in the windows application that is registered for opening wave files. This was also the behavior with other audio files.

Now, it only offers to download the file which is incorrect behavior, the file just is needed for now and after now has passed, there is not reason to keep the file on the computer.

How do I restore the proper behavior.

Dear Community, (developers)

A question for concentration. For a long time now I have lacked, and I am sure I'm not alone, one important function. It is to support the mode (browser version) with just 2 tabs.

You can develop products based on marketing analysis or you can be humanly and make good design for people.

Be more human, browser and product developers. You need to help users today. Be one of the first to provide a reasonable palette of solutions to maintain focus. This is the future.

Either Mozilla will do it, or someone else will.

Respectfully to Mozilla, your faithful, patiently waiting for real solutions user.


PS. Needs official solutions that will be under the control of all the private settings, good graphics and that I will trust. No one wants little-known apps from the store.

Open links in tabs instead of new windows

Hi, I have set Firefox to "Open previous windows and tabs" and to "Open links in tabs instead of new windows". When the system opens Firefox for me because I've clicked a link in a document, I would like the link to open in a new tab of that previous window which Firefox opens at startup. For many years this was its behaviour. In Chrome for example, this was not and is still not the case.

Recent upgrades to Firefox have changed its behaviour to that of Chrome. When I click a link, Firefox now opens the link in a new window and then opens the previous window on top of that. The link I wanted to follow is behind and invisible.

Could someone check and see if this is related to my system (I'm running Monterey) or if it's reproducible? I can't think of a reason for this change so it feels like a bug, either on my system or in the app itself.

Thanks for any help!

I'm uploading changed webpages to the internet on a daily basis, using Firefox. I'm Using Firefox version 100.0 now and I have discoverd a problem with version 100.0 . From Firefox version 99.01 and downwards, this problem never existed before. The refresh button in Firefox 100.0 ( Ctrl+R ) no longer works good anymore! Sometimes it works good, the other time it's not working correct anymore, you will not see the latest uploaded webpage on the internet. The only solution to this problem is bij closing Firefox and restarting it. Only then you will see the latest uploaded webpage on the internet. Please have a serious look at this annoying problem in version 100.0. This problem can only be discoverd by people who are uploading new webpages to the internet, not bij the regular internet-users/visitors.

When I use Chrome and enter the same link it is much shorter and looks like :- https://www.facebook.com/JournalTimes/posts/10166569792420602 As I post a lot of links I prefer to use the shortest. How can I get Firefox to display the url the same as Chrome.

Thank You, Anne Lionnet

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/permission-request-messages-firefox-extensions?as=u&utm_source=inproduct The long list of permissions here seem incredibly excessive, completely irrelevant to the task and therefore an invasion of privacy. Some examples: ''Extend developer tools to access your data in open tabs "Download files and read and modify the browser’s download history" "Open files downloaded to your computer" "Read the text of all open tabs" "Access recently closed tabs" "Access your location" "Access browsing history" "Monitor extension usage and manage themes" "Exchange messages with programs other than Firefox" "Read and modify privacy settings" "Control browser proxy settings" "Store unlimited amount of client-side data" Seriously? All I want the browser to do is search for an image, not hand over all my personal information to you. You can't find an image without checking where I am, what else I've been doing, modifying my privacy and browser proxy settings, storing unlimited data, reading everything on my open and recently closed tabs? Is this to be used for commercial purposes? What's going on here? I think it's time to find a new browser. Please explain.

Hi All

I disabled the group-by option everywhere in my Win 11 home. Now I can open any folder and avoid that useless feature... except if I open the download folder from Firefox.

Details: - if I open my Downloads folder from the desktop shortcut I get it normal (no group-by) - if I click the folder icon close to the downloaded file in Firefox Library/Downloads window, then the windows folder is shown with Group-by enabled - the same happens if I click the folder icon close to the downloaded file in Firefox's download toolbar icon

Does this happen to others? Thank you Stefano

I wanted to print out an order placed online but could only print part of it.

The order took up about 1.5 pages when displayed in Firefox, but I could only print the upper 2/3 of it. That’s all the Print Preview displayed. It was cut off at the bottom. There was no option to print the missing lower third or a second page.

I can scroll Firefox to display the lower part but Print Preview still shows only the upper part.

I can change FF’s scale to 80% in order to show the whole order on the screen, but Print Preview still only shows the upper part.

I can scale Print Preview to 70%, but then it’s difficult to read.

I don’t recall having this problem with earlier versions of Firefox.

How can I print my order on 2 pages so that I can read it?

If I wanted to use the navbar for search I'd set it up that way. I don't, and I'm getting really sick of doing this...

    type in searchBar "about:config"
   Accept warning
   Search "browser.urlbar.suggest.searches" and change it to false (Do this Only if you want to disable suggesions)
   Search "keyword.enabled" and change it to false
   Search "browser.fixup.alternate.enabled" and change it to false 

every time I open Firefox or a new tab in Firefox.

I'd like the option of not having it search in the navbar, ever. I search using Google. I like Google. I've been a big fan and supporter of Firefox for years, but this constantly having to deal with the search in the navbar thing, which I don't want it to do, is really turning me off of Firefox. I hate the Microsoft junk, Explorer and Edge, and I don't like Chrome either, but I'm getting really sick of Firefox trying to shove this Search via the navbar thing down my throat.

How do I disable navbar search permanently, or am I just stuck with redoing it every time I open Firefox or a new tab, at least until I get completely fed up and decide to give another browser a try at replacing Firefox?

Hi Windows 10 21h2 Firefox 100.0 When pasting images from the clipboard into a website (atlassian confluence for example) firefox uses a generic image name (grafik.png) instead of the actual filename. This started to happend a few weeks ago. I was not able to find a demo page where this can be tested, other browsers don't have this issue.

Anyone having similiar issues or an idea how to fix it?

Thanks
