I just switched back to Firefox and found that now when you download a file, you have to click on the little arrow next to the status bar to see the downloaded files.

I much prefer the way Chrome handles this. Whenever you download a file, it automatically shows a bar at the bottom of the screen showing the file progress, so you can immediately take actions like cancelling, or navigating to the file directory.

Is it possible to have Firefox display the downloads window automatically whenever you download a file?

Thanks! -Alterius

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/welcome/11/

Which looks like Mozilla, which in a way is even worse. And this is not my home page it's supposed to open with, I assure you. Seems to be plugging VPN for the holidays. Yeah, right.

Why does Firefox keep telling me to update every time I log on, and several times while I'm logged on? These messages are very annoying and unnecessary! I don't need your updates! I don't want any update that removes the "back" button! I like using the "back" button. I allowed Firefox to update a while back, and it removed the "back" button, so I had to do a big system restore to get the back button returned! Please stop sending the update messages! Firefox works fine without the stupid updates. Allow the "Back" button to be used. NO MORE UPDATES! The update messages are so annoying, I'm about to quit using Firefox.

Hi, I'm new to Linux, just one week on Manjaro.. It's great so far and Firefix works well. I only seem to have issues with one website (https://www.crateandbarrel.ca/quebec/customer-service) but it's an important one for me.

The error message tells me to enable cookies and JavaScript, which I've done but the error persists. The message is as follows. Any ideas on what else I could do resolve this error? Thank you

I raised the problem and had a response kindly trying to assist but after following all the steps advised I still can't access any bookmarks or history.

I have located the places.sqlite file as advised and renamed it but when I restart Firefox nothing changes and it makes no attempt to recover bookmarks from the backup files.

I would welcome any assistance as I have saved details I need.

Thank you.

SSL not working when redirecting from non-www to www

Hello, im a web developer and have come accross a problem which only occurs in the firefox browser.

When i design a website, i use the www version of it always, and have redircts for all other instances, eg; mydomain.co.uk > https://www.mydomain.co.uk http://www.mydomain.co.uk > https://www.mydomain.co.uk https://mydomain.co.uk > https://www.mydomain.co.uk

So they all end up at the secure www version of the website. This is done in the .htaccess file and works great in Chrome, Edge, Explorer etc just not firefox.

In firefox i get the error

Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to boothandco.com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.

What can you do about it?

The issue is most likely with the web site, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the web site’s administrator about the problem.

Ignoring it then procceeds to the full https://www. but that warning screen will be enough to put potential visitors off no doubt.

Is there an "easy fix" for this or is the only way to solve the problem to use up more SAN's and double up on www and non-www versions of each website?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks Chris

Hi Guys 'n Gals, As of today, I am unable to log into the Australian Tax office Business Portal or Business Services (BETA) through MyGov using Firefox browser. I can log in through Edge, no problem to both. I've cleared histories, cache etc on Firefox, and it is up to date. I've logged out, and logged back in. When I attempt to enter the email address to log on to ATO using Firefox, I can type the address as far as ".com". The moment I type ".", I lose the entire address, except for the ".". I don't get to the "com.au" part at all. I've contacted the ATO, they have no updates at all regarding issues with Firefox. We are getting close to Plan C (Sledge Hammer LOL). Any and all help gratefully accepted, I do not like edge....... Thank you Trina

I am constantly frustrated by unresponsive pages / script warnings etc using Firefox. This never used to happen on previous builds -- I am using the latest 86.0 -- but these occur so often that I am about to say goodbye to Firefox. This does not happen when I am using Chrome and other browsers.

I have been through all of the suggested steps to deal with these unresponsive script/page issues, and none has worked.

Would appreciate any help on this, but as I say I am about to leave Firefox at this point for Chrome and other browsers.

Thanks in advance...

Print Preview 86.0 too small to see. Also other print features now very difficult

My print preview is no longer available, and the new one is too small to see what's on the page. It's useless! Also, simplify page is gone (I understand "Reader View") is the work-around. Also, it's many extra clicks to get to my system print controls to print properly.

Solving the print preview too small would go a long way towards keeping Firefox usable. The other things could certainly use fixing, however.

Thanks in advance! L.

(I have restored the old functionality temporarily with print.tab_modal.enabled preference set to false. Thanks community for showing me to do so! See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1322623 if you want to know how.  However, usually Firefox takes these options away soon.  )

Hi, I have a weird issue with firefox upon the initial launch. When I turn on the computer and click on the firefox icon, it shows microsoft bing then I close that tab and I'm back to the firefox homepage on the next tab. It's like somehow it's merged with firefox and I tried adjusting the settings and nothing works.
