Firefox used to give the option to open a file without saving. Now it saves everything to my downloads folder with no option to just open. (I am aware Firefox used to save the opened files in temp). This causes major clutter in my downloads folder and big disruptions to my work flow. Sometimes I just want to view the file and not save it to my working folder (downloads).

Is there a workaround to save to opened files in temp and the saved files to download?

Does Firefox give 2 different "save to" options? One option for a location to save downloaded files and one option for a location to save opened files?

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.

Gmail "open message in new window" redirect fails since updating to FF 100.0.1

I have two Gmail Workspace accounts logged in to two different tabs in one FF browser window. Have used this set-up for years. However, ever since updating to FF 100.0.1, when I try to open an email thread in a new window (pops out the message into a separate window), there is a "cannot properly re-direct error" that appears.

Only way to resolve this appears to be clearing the cache for mail.google.com and signing in again to both accounts. However, this solution only appears to work for a day or two before the "redirect error in a new window" occurs again.

This error does not occur in Private Browsing mode, and Google Workspace support has confirmed it is not an issue with Gmail/ Workspace.

Any thoughts on how this can be fixed? I have disable all "enhanced tracking protection"

Thank you for your time and help,

Firefox is unable to load module

I've been trying to setup a smartcard reading device, and I've gotten stuck twice on the same place.

When it comes to configuring the Security Device on Firefox, I can't access the .so file. Firefox merely shows the error "Alert: Unable to add module", but I've noticed that when I try to browse my files manually, trying to access the /usr directory returns an error (sometimes, I seem to not be able to get it consistently).

It also happens that the software I installed for the digital certificate tried to open an html with Firefox, which is located in /usr/share/, and Firefox doesn't seem to be able to load that either. It returns a "Can't open file".

Steps followed

  1. Open Firefox
  2. Settings → Privacy and Security → Security Devices → Load
  3. Insert path /usr/lib/libpkcs11-dnie.so and try to load (yes, I've checked that the file does actually exist)
  4. Receive Alert: Unable to add module error

Relevant information

   Ubuntu 22.04
   I'm on the latest snap version of Firefox: 100.0.1-1
   Trying to setup the digital certificate for my Spanish ID (DNIe)

I can't no longer use "wetransfer.com" Their homepage does not load properly and no matter what I click on this page it starts using the CPU 100% and slows down everything and nothing happens anymore. I whitelisted this website in all privacy-extensions, and because in a flits I saw that "firefox essentials" was blocking something - despite the whitelist - I uninstalled it. To no avail. Firefox 100.0.1 (64 bits) under Windows 11 home 64 bits. How can I find out what is the problem ? Thanks for helping out.

I manage two W10 PCs, each with FF installed and fully updated (v100.0). Firefox on Windows has the following bars at the top: 1) the title bar (Firefox…) in Windows style, 2) the edit bar (File Edit History…), 3) the tool bar (customised: eg. Home, Go back, Go forward, Reload, Show Sidebars, Download, Print…), 4) the browser tabs bar containing the open tabs containing a website page.

The problem is that on one PC, the browser tabs bar comes right after the edit bar.

I can't find how to change this, since the solutions are too old or unclear. Please, help.

Greetings. I can't open most sites I usually visit (even google.com) via my Firefox 98.0a1. This happens since today. All error codes are SEC_ERROR_LIBRARY_FAILURE.

Tried to:

  • Disable DNS-over-HTTPS.
  • Disable HTTP/3.
  • Disable proxy (never had it enabled anyway).
  • Disable sending info to Firefox developers.
  • Change settings of DNS-over-HTTPS.
  • Restart the browser (after each action).

Nothing helps me... But I still can visit some websites, but most common resources are not working for me. Please help me because I can't use Microsoft Edge without getting mentally ill. :/
