Downloading and Opening docx Firefox appends doc onto file

I am using Hotdocs portal, which is an in-house document assembly tool. Firefox is the recommended browser, but it is recently handling 2016 docx files incorrectly. When we choose a file on the portal site (internal site), we go through the interview and are presented with a link to "download" the assembled file. When you click that link, a pop-up appears showing the file name as abc.docx but then says it is a Word 97 - 2003 document, even though it is not. The original template is not. If I choose to open the file, it ends up opening and showing as abc.docx.doc If I save the file, instead of opening it, it saves as abc.docx.

If we run this same process in IE/Edge, the file opens as abc.docx as it should. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Is there anything that could be causing this? I've tried a bunch of troubleshooting steps and nothing seems to change this outcome.

Thank you.

I cannot get Firefox to go completely into full screen on Mac OS Catalina. When going full screen it will hide the Mac system menu bar at the top, but it will not hide the Firefox address bar. I've researched a bit and found some suggestions about settings in about:config pertaining to full screen access, and I've exhausted all of those suggestions. Is this a known issue on Mac with Firefox?

Hi! Can't connect to my router panel in 192.168.1.1, probably due to bad cache. But there is no cache for 192.168.1.1 in firefox "data manager", but I sure it exist. I don't want to clear all cache and data. Incognito mode without addons doesn't work. I can establish connection in other browsers, includes another firefox browser. How could I clear cache for 192.168.1.1, if firefox show there is none?

Hello Firefox community

I use Firefox as my primary browser on 5 devices - personal desktop, work laptop, spouse desktop, spouse laptop, and personal laptop. On only my personal laptop, I frequently encounter SSL cert errors warning me of invalid issuer. I don't encounter the same error on any other device (including also my phones). Is there some way I can force an update of the Firefox certificate repository? I assume these are being caused by out of date cert repositories or the like. The cert I get on the other devices is the same cert presented to this laptop; only the laptop issues the error.

The new version of Firefox has removed the drop-down arrow from the address bar, a feature I use several times a day.

Previously, there was a way to restore this by setting a number of "browser.urlbar" options to "False." However, these are currently set at False.

Please advise. Without the drop-down arrow, Firefox is not useful at all.

Dear Mozilla community, I was re-ordering the main tabs for daily use. The little blue line that indicates a move-change was about to show up when my finger slipped from the Apple Magic trackpad. The TAB that I use for dissertation work (PHD) disappeared. Thinking that it simply was transferred to the my Bookmarks, I checked there. No joy. I also checked to the bookmark menu TAB for my university teaching work. Not there either? Hmm. I searched for the Bookmark (PHD) and I am not able to locate it.

Any suggestions?

I would be most grateful.

Sincerely, AM

My present iMac is failing rapidly and I will be replacing it with a new Mac very. I do not have a Time Machine backup. The only info I really need is how to copy off, to an external drive, all the bookmarks and bookmark structure), extensions, and add-ons I have added to Firefox, and then add them to Firefox on my future Mac.

Do I just copy the Firefox app to the external drive? I looked in the Macs' base system Library and Preferences, and in my User files, but I do not see anything related to Firefox.

My old (current) and failing Mac is running the latest version of Catalina,

Thanks for any info!

I am currently using Firefox version 77.0 in windows 10. I noticed few things that when I try to open some of the PDFs it shows "This PDF document might not be displayed correctly" and just blank white page shows up (image included).

I use few extensions which I disabled them completely when I read PDF but still I am unable to access PDF. While same PDFs are easily readable by other browsers like Chrome or Edge.

Please let me know is it a bug or there is some settings to tweak. Thanks in advance.

I find it a real distraction, and it's really putting me off using firefox as a broswer. I really don't think this sort of eye candy is needed in order to browse the internet.
