Hello!

I was just wondering if there was a way to disable the pop-up that appears to confirm the cancellation of an ongoing download ?

I tried searching in the about:config page but didn't find any parameter that looked like it could help me on that.

Thanks in advance!

Where do I go to find the current updates? I have followed instructions on the support page, but it doesn't take me to anything but more questions. I get a dialog box on my screen saying there is an update and to download and restart. I did that, but it did nothing and I keep getting that dialog box. Where can I go to see if I have the most current version? I have been all over the FF pages and can't find anywhere that says anything refering to "current update available".

Hello,

I use a 2019 Macbook Pro. While I was out of the country for a few months last winter, I left my computer behind and used my work laptop only. When I returned and performed a few updates to my Macbook, I noticed that each time I want to use Firefox (when restarting my computer), I have to download it and sign in (which also prompts a new sign-in email from Firefox). I never had this issue before on my computer or any prior computer, so I'm wondering if it's a basic fix to where I could use it each time I restart my computer without having to go through the process of downloading and signing in. It doesn't take much time, just an additional minute or so each time I want to sign in, which gets a bit annoying. Please let me know.

Thanks,

Dan

All of the sudden I cannot download mp3 files under the "save audio as" . It automatically tries to save it as a htm file. I have never had this issue before. I have downloaded many mp3s with no issues. Am I missing something here? It gives me no option to save it as a mp3, only as a htm

Hi!

I found from internet that updates should be stored in: C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Mozilla Firefox\updates

But I dont even have that folder but somehow firefox tells me to restart to install updates.

Since internet documentation seems to be outdated on this aspect I decided to ask here.

Firefox wasn't working well on a seldom-used laptop, and the update to 100.0.1 didn't go quite right, so I deleted the old version and (using the odious Edge) tried downloading a fresh copy of the software.

But then I get a message from "7-ZIP" that reads "Can not create temp folder archive"

I'm stuck. Advice?

Hi guys,

My Firefox Nightly keeps asking me to download empty files with random names, e.g. ABC1234567.htm, they always have random letters and digits but the .htm extension is always the same. The files are always empty, 0 bytes. As far as I noticed, it happens when I navigate through pages, e.g. clicking on various buttons on sites or using the Back/Forward buttons on my mouse. I tried to lookup of what's the source of the files via F12->Network, but it did not show me anything related to this problem.

It happens on different websites even on the site coded by me, so that's definitely a browser/extension issue. I saw some posts mentioning this problem on Reddit but there were no solution/explanation.

Just now it asked me to download 3 different files in a row. I made a screenshot of this issue.

Firefox 103 Nightly, Win 10.

Suddenly, as of this morning, downloading is behaving differently-in a bad way.

• The first problem is that downloads are no longer showing their bit rate; I cannot tell how fast or slow a given download is progressing. I have different available servers and need to select the best for the situation.

• The second is that, upon completion of an mp4 download, my media player (VLC) opens the file and starts playing it, which didn't happen before. It's extremely distracting.

I can't find anything in Firefox preferences which might alter these behaviors.

I don't know enough about these particular events to know whether to attribute them to Firefox or to the website that is providing the files.

Hoping for assistance getting things back to where they were, with thanks…

My desktop computer had a meltdown requiring a new hard drive and re-installation of Firefox. Upon installation I was asked for an authentication code but I have never put the two step process in place.

I'm then asked for a 10 digit number provided when setting up my account. I set my account up multiple years ago and have an alpha numeric code which does not work.

I can still access my account on my laptop - just cant reinstall on my desktop.

OS - Windows 10 - up to date, downloaded yesterday. Same with Firefox.

Suggestions?

Is there any clear way to prevent Firefox from automatically downloading and installing updates? I had checked the setting to prevent it being done without my choosing to do so: "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" but Firefox did not comply. What can a user do if Firefox will not comply with its own settings?

In government it's called autocracy, elitism and the only ones who like it are the ones in charge. Is that what's going on with Firefox?
