While doing some virus discovery tests with Windows Defender and other AV products I realized that with Firefox files are not scanned when download finishes. With Chrome and Edge the Windows Defender immediately checks and blocks malicious files. Not so with Firefox. Then the file is only checked and blocked when opened.

After some research I found that in the past there was an Option `browser.download.manager.scanWhenDone` but this seems no longer available. Under Security software in about:support Windows Defender seems to be correctly set.

Is there a way to have files immediately checked by the AV after download in Firefox completes?

he method for updating manual proxy settings is new to me, admittedly, but with even a tiny bit of research it seems super accessible and straightforward. I am a Ipvanish user who is a little disenchanted with their extension on Firefox, and simply want to use a manual proxy to browse instead.

When updating my proxy settings, I do what every YouTube or WikiHow article would tell you, and I search for the best available Ipvanish server for my region, copy the link directly, apply it to the manual proxy setting, set all proxies to this same link, and set the port to 80.

However, instead of prompting me for a login/password after closing and reopening the browser, every single page instead goes through a connection timeout and ultimately fails to load altogether.

Has anyone else experienced this and discovered a fix? Or can you perhaps guide me through a mistake I am making, perhaps in my process or a setting which I overlooked?

Disable the built-in PDF viewer and use another viewer

You can also set a different third-party PDF viewer to handle PDF files, instead of Firefox’s built-in PDF viewer. To switch from using the built-in PDF viewer to another viewer: 1. Click the menu button and select . 2. In the panel, go down to the Applications section. (SO WHERE IN THE HELL IS THIS SECTION???) YOU CAN'T DO I never selected Mozilla to open any pdf and there's no where to opt out or change based on what all the troubleshooting tips say... All these tips must be located on a much older version of Firefox cause they ain't in my version OR they are hid under some dubious section... Pretty frustrating....when you want to use Adobe and can't cause I'm locked in under Firefox....don't know how that has happened unless it was done automatically under one of the many current upgrades that have been coming down over the last month.

Sorry as I Don't know how to Write the Problem. But Still Trying for it and save the World with Big Problem of Firefox Password manager.

I wanted to state that firefox Password Manager is still not secured on windows PC,

My Clarification.

When you Open the Firefox and Press the Application Menu, Passwords. It Open all the Passwords.

Ii I wanted to Steal any Passwords of my Known Person, it's very easy on PC. If any User Keep his Account Sync Open with Mozilla Server, I just Sit on My known Person user PC. Open the Firefox and Press the Application Menu, Passwords. and All Password i can See and Copy

Here is what i Think Mozilla Team to Have - Password Manger Opening Key or can see Secret Password / Other encryption & Decryption Method which only the Actual User will see All saved Passwords by Password / Other encryption & Decryption Method.

Hi, I’ve been using Firefox as my default browser for some time now. And lately I’ve been noticing a style tag added in each and all randomly visited URL. This style tag contains loads of links, mostly ad references, and seems JavaScript based, as shown in attachment. I don’t have extensions anywhere and I ran defender, some malaware software and antivirus but there was nothing to report. I’m intrigued and trying to find out from where is coming from and how the style tag gets attached inside the body of the HTML page automatically and randomly to any visited URL. This happens with all mainstream browsers. I mean … what the hack?
