Hello!

I usually create a private window by right clicking the pinned Firefox icon on my Windows 10 taskbar. Recently, I've noticed that when I do this, I am no longer able to immediately type into the search/URL bar. I've dug through the settings - I did find some items that sounded relevant, but they did not change the correct behavior. When bringing up all my windows I see that the previous tab is still has my cursor despite the private window being in front of the previous tab. I now have to click on the private window before I'm able to type.

Any idea what changed?

Update to the most recent Firefox Browser Version unsuccessful. 'Automatic update' option is active, but I receive a failure message like "... could not be updated to the newest version". I'm stuck at version 69 or so. Manual update equally unsuccessful - I tried the commonly known tips already. Windows 8 PC, active user profile is not 'administrator' (this was not a problem in the past). P.S.: I'm sending thsi message from a different PC (... wher updating Firefox no problem) - so educated guesses below may be misleading

When I upgraded to Windows 10, my default browser was reset. I've followed the simple Firefox instructions to reset my default browser to Firefox, but have been unsuccessful. That is because Firefox does not appear on the list of browser options that the Firefox instructions show will appear when I click on Microsoft Edge. Internet Explorer is there, and one other besides MS Edge, but no Firefox. How can I set Firefox as my default browser? This is getting aggravating. Thanks!

I went to use Firefox. A message pops up wanting to know if I want to make Firefox my default browser. I thought I all ready had. ( This problem started after Firefox did an update ). Anyway, I clicked "yes". I am taken to a page on my computer that lists all the Aps I have. Firefox was listed but when I clicked on the Apt nothing happened. I tried again and now Firefox is not even listed. How can I make Firefox my default browser if it is not even listed? I am using Firefox to contact you now. The only thing listed is Google Chrome.

Starting yesterday, I can no longer download .pdf datasheets from the regular firms that I have been dealing with. When I click on the datasheet link, the page that I was on is returned, instead of the datasheet. I am using Windoz 7. Is this caused by changes in Firefox? Can this be fixed?

Thank you for your assistance in this matter. Johnski

I'm on a Mac, and Safari is my default browser. But for a few years, I've used Firefox several times a week as needed. When I'm not using Firefox, I typically quit it.

For the last 2-3 days, Firefox has started launching spontaneously. I'll be doing something else on my computer, and suddenly Firefox appears in my dock (but it doesn't come to the forefront). The first time I saw this, I quit it immediately, but it immediately restarted. After 3 or 4 tries, it stayed quit. But a few hours later, it launched spontaneously again, and this has now happened half a dozen times.

I've run two anti-malware scans (by two, different developers), and both came up squeaky clean. I do have Firefox set to auto-update, but I've never seen this behavior before. In the past, updates were performed in the background, then when I launched Firefox, I'd be notified that it had been updated.

This auto-launch behavior is disturbing. Does anyone have any idea what's going on?

I'm running macOS Catalina 10.15.6.

Meetup.com site login will not work with latest versions of Firefox. Does anybody know why, or have a workaround. It works on other browsers like Chrome. In latest Firefox, I enter my valid username & Pwd, do the Capcha, and hit logon button - it just takes me back to the logon screen. In chrome, it enters the site as expected. I have cleared the cache & all cookies. Help.
