ADBLOCK CUSTOM FILTERS not working on this site WHAT THE HECK IS THAT AHAH WHAT??? ALSO THIS. After "Refresh"ing Firefox, it now by default saves a file with the page title, not the filename. I can no longer find out how to change this default behaviour (presumably I'd used an addon that has been deleted). This is extremely inconvenient - many archives have large numbers of filenames like "<number>.txt", e.g. "234567.txt", but all with the same title. I don't understand why keeping the old Firefox default was not made an option when you changed to saving by title!

What kind of problem are you having? Load the web page. After the page is loaded, click the AdBlock icon. Now select Disable on <website>. After, reload the page.

What are you trying to download? Files, programs . . . .

Have you tried using Right-Click > Save As ?


Start Firefox using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?
