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

And suddenly.. there was Google translate asking me to translate a certain website. For the life f me (and I googled myself silly) I CANNOT get it to stop. even when I tell it I do not need it.

I've tried every trick I could find, yet to no avail.

I've NOT installed any add ons that would enable this. And it only happens with one website (hannants.co.uk) and no other (as far as I can see now). This is really ticking me off.

Like I said I googled to no avail and no extension within Firefox that I can see that are enabling. Can any one please help me is turning this piece of crap translation off?

Thanks

I have been having problems with my sign-in on a particular web site lately. I have been in contact with them and finally found the problem. Firefox will not allow me to fully log in to my XXXXXX account. It will only allow me to get to the "Security Challenge" page then stops. I assume that it is because of some pop-up problem. Can someone please help?

I have ran three antivirus said PC is clean, scan disk defrag done. I went through all settings nothing I saw looked wrong. I don't know what is going on I just know these last 5 days have been pure hell. I cleared cookies and site information, and reset passwords and I even went to sites to see what they suggested. Nothing worked. I tried Private Mode too. and a different browser. I know a few sites do work password wise. But sites like the bank and the credit cards don't no matter what i do. I am so fed up I am about to order this windows 10 pro disk and reformat. This is a Dell computer and i wish I never bought this thing. It is a little over a year old. If I decide to buy another PC it's gonna be from scratch. I hate Dell as soon as all the perks expired I have done nothing but fix this thing.

After your latest update you broke the bookmark star function. This is key to my role in my job and if it is not fixed in a reasonable amount of time then I will have to switch back to Chrome. The instructions say to right click the 3 dots but it does not offer up anything when done. Add to address bar is the only thing that shows up when you do right click on the 3 dots instead of add to address bar like the article says. Please fix this ASAP!!!!

Firefox is working fine, except it won't load gmail, and gmail works fine in other browsers. I get a tab crash message but no opportunity to submit a report. I copied and pasted the url of the working page from another browser and as before it just crashed while loading.

I have tried clearing history, refreshing firefox without add ons etc., and running a scan for malware.

None of this worked. Any suggestions appreciated.

FF frequently fails to restore tabs losing all my previous work before I've finished. It's very annoying and frustrating. In search help the answer is not simple to understand. Please tell me, what is sessionstore and where can it be found? Why is there not a button to fix this problem? If sessionstore gets corrupted frequently as mine seems to (according to the answer) why not have a sessionstore back-up and a routine to correct the problem or at least easily recover from the corruption?

I thought the crashes might have been due to the uBlock origin and Facebook container extensions using up too much memory. However, Firefox continued to experience crashes after I tested it in safe mode. When I open up Task Manager, Firefox seems to be using up a lot more CPU resources and memory than it did before a couple of days ago. I've since uninstalled my extensions but the problems still persist.

The report ID's for the crashes are: bp-94cefb01-7fa6-4b62-93bb-c14c50210320 bp-eaf60c05-af53-47f8-8bfd-b06060210320 bp-22306d71-0eed-4134-95be-b176d0210320 bp-79f8c944-27e3-41a7-bee0-1aca40210320 bp-91728ef4-3206-45d3-8c3d-2ebd00210320 bp-0f95dfcf-5e07-4a8a-b77a-ecb580210320

A downloaded file (VMware-workstation-full-16.1.0-17198959.exe), Dwnlded on 19/Mar/21, ended up with a file size of 0 KB (SEE Image $20210320-mar~1-Download_Final_File_Size=0KB.jpg).

The file size should have been 622 MB (SEE Image $20210320-mar~2-Download_Save-File_Size.jpg).

I was wondering if the file ending in ".exe.part" may have been mistakenly accepted as the real file & renamed to ".exe".
