New PDF reader always uses the same name "document.pdf" when saving via keyboard shortcut (cmd+S on macOS)

With the previous version of Firefox (with the old PDF reader) I used to open PDF article from physics journals (e.g. https://journals.aps.org/prl/pdf/10.1103/PhysRevLett.125.131101 ) and save them using cmd+C (on a Mac). The default name of the file used to be "PhysRevLett.125.131101.pdf" while now it's always "document.pdf", which is very inconvenient, since I have to manually rename the files before downloading. If I save the file by clicking on the download icon in the reader, I still get the same more informative filename (but I don't get to choose the location for the download). I'm wondering why the name of the file is not consistent between the two ways of saving documents. Is there a way to go back to the old behaviour (unlikely, I guess)? Anyway I'd like to suggest the developers to go back the old way of handling the file name, if there are no strong reasons for the change.

I spend days cleaning out my bookmarks W10 HP laptop. then I saw the link on the top right to sign into my Firefox account..did not know I even had one. It had me verify with number sent to my email. I did not sync. When I signed out- my bookmarks were filled with old ones I had deleted and some duplicated, Why and how do I fix this from happening again other than never signing into this Firefox account again.

It's impossible to edit a URL in the new and terrible address bar. This is a problem, and just one tiny example among many, when a website shows a non English page because I am in some other country. I used to be able to change .../de/etc. to /en-us/etc. and get the correct page. Now I have to click dots, select to copy, paste into notepad, make the change and paste-and-go.

Can this completely idiotic behavior be changed? Who is this aimed at, anyway? Address bars have worked the same for decades at this point - and whilest enhancing it is fine, disabling something as basic to ALL Windows or Mac as editing is insane.

Any thoughts? I've cleared my cache and restarted. Still doesn't go to the site. There is no error message, I click the link or type in the website and it just flashes in the address bar and then nothing.

Thanks in advance.

Automate Browser actions: I am an individual. I am an end user. Looking for turnkey software that I could use to automate web tasks like log into a website and do things for example log into okcupid the dating website and open my likes and click the x on any with the country = Russia, as I can’t filter on country and get bombarded with likes from Russia. For example.

I would do it to train it then it would keep going. Little coding. thanks! This is one thing that could make Firefox really powerful, as many websites are too lazy to put in features that should be there.. as in my example.

I teach classes that use Adobe Connect and Flash. In trying to login this week, the window is zoomed in and I can't zoom out. When I try, only the pane with text and attendee list shrinks. I don't have the problem with Safari but I like Firefox better. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, Adobe Connect and Adobe Flash. The problem continues even after doing this.

Sorry, I am a lay, but this was the second time I got an award anouncement for the 1 Mil. search in Firefox. The link connects me to a page "utopia ...." presenting me 3 gifts for choice telling me a time limit of 5 minutes? This makes me unsure and I left the page.

Is this a real action of FIREFOX or is it a virus?

Hello,

The bookmarks in the sidebar are enlisted by date, the most recent being added at the bottom of the list.

Is it possibile to reverse this order to view the most recent bookmarks on top of the list? Having a long bookmark list, every time I open the sidebar I have to scroll all the way down to the bottom of it. The same applies to Firefox for Android.

Thank you.
