Starting around v98.x, every attempt to download a file (eg with "Save Link as") immediately result in a Failed message in the download list.

This happens despite the setting "Always ask where to save files", though it doesn't matter. The Failed message appears before I am asked where the file should be saved.

Downloads work if I log in as another user.

If I restart firefox with "-safe-mode", I can do downloads. But not if I then start in regular mode.

The problem started in late March or early April 2022.

Extensions: Facebook Container, GNOME Shell integration, Hide Private Mode, IP Address and Domain Information, NoScript, TreeStyle Tab, uBlock Origin

WHY do ALL "printscreens" come out black (until after new power-cycle) immediately after using ANY "private browser"?

Find the "switch" that gets "activated" (when using ANY private browser window) that prevents us from using "printscreen" AND...ALL other "printsreen apps" as well (such as "windows snipping tool"). After using ANY private browser, Printscreen just shows an all black screen! Once you've used a private browser window (on a Win 7 desktop)...you no longer have any printscreen ability until after you power-cycle...when it's too late!! Printscreen ALWAYS shows an all black screen!

Try it for yourself on YOUR desktop...regardless of your system!

In Firefox I set my download settings to "Always ask you where to save file", and for most of the websites that still works. Unfortunately, since a recent update, gmail does not do that anymore. It gets immediately saved in my downloads folder without any prompt of where to save it. Any solution how to fix this? Thanks!

I am an a US citizen, living in Europe! How do I keep Mozilla from changing languages on me? I just connected my Laptop PC and everything is in the German language. Why? I'm sorry, but I must insist that Mozilla stop doing this. My mother tongue is American English, and when I keep getting your communications in a foreign language, there is a good possibility that I might misinterpret what has been written by Mozilla to me. Or is the problem with me living in Europe?

Search by Image has a new update - the permissions seem offensively excessive & an invasion of privacy.

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.

Hello

Is there a way to find previously viewed images somewhere? I was watching an image in the Firefox browser a few days ago and now that I went back to check it again the page had been removed by the user. I assume all images that I´ve viewed has been stored somewhere on my computer? Where can I see these?

The same question goes for webpages. The image was on a webpage that I would like to view again but it was removed along with the image. Can I see whole pages that I´ve previously browsed somewhere?

I know this has been posssible in the past but it was like 10 years ago I last checked.

Thanks!

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.

I can no longer print from firefox. The final print always comes out 1/5 +- size and is unreadable. It doesnt matter what king of a document it is and if I go to chrome or edge it prints fine. This began occurring I believe after the last version.

After updating to V 100.0.1 I have discovered that I am unable to post to 2 different message boards that I had no issues with before. Is there some parameter that has changed that is prohibiting me from uploading text and/or images? I am having no problem if I use Microsoft Edge but I much prefer working with Firefox.

Up to today if I click on a link in Outlook email it would open in Firefox (both set as default) If I change browser default to Chrome, links work. I'm at latest update in Firefox. If I right click on email link, copy, paste into Firefox, links work OK. Mouse icon will spin for a few seconds and there are no error messages. Not aware of any changes. Restarts of PC, Outlook, and Firefox (even tried troubleshoot mode) = no help.
