I really miss the ability to have a "Save As" choice when i download pdf's or pictures from the web I'm always on the latest version of Firefox but only gets 'Open', Open with' and 'Save'...

Often the downloaded files gets lost in the wrong folder or hide itself with a crazy name that 'the web page' has given it.

AS both Google Chrome and Windows Edge offers that possibility and has for long, please include that feature in the next update...??

Thank You

Hello. Had installed Mozilla awhile back, then uninstalled it but could not remember why. After re-installing, the issue has come back and think it best to ask. I use Free Download Manager and the add-on is active and downloads OK. Problem comes when handling streaming videos. When an object I intend to download has a download button, FDM automatically picks and handles the download; however, when I right-click a streaming video and "Save Video As", Mozilla does not pick the download via FDM but switches to the traditional download method. Interestingly, same scenario in Chrome and Edge, the "save video as" via FDM works picks perfectly. Please help. Thanks

Hello,

The sites of my bank and from the town administration made notes that my Firefox browser was old and should be updated. I downloaded from the Mozzilla site the new Firefox for Windows 10, uninstalled Firefox and installed the new one. Then again these sites noted that my browser was old. Again I uninstalled Firefox completely and then I found out that ALL the files were not deleted but some kind of hidden. In Windows Verkenner there were no files to be found but my firewall found them all, but they had no size, no date, no digital signature at all.

Then I deceded to do a test. In the firewall I switched all the rights of the "deleted" files into "forbidden access". Then again made a new installation with the new installation file. It proceded as normal. But then it apeared that again the same old version of Firefox was present again.

My question is: what is happening here.

Best wishes and thank you, Han Benes

Hi,

I am an old-timer and one update per one or two years is enough. Are automatic updates at last disabled in firefox 88 ? I tried about:config but it is too much complicated, I am nearly retired.

Perhaps could you deliver forefix, the nice-to-have version of firefox that don't bother with updates.

My CPU usage suddenly began topping out when I would launch a Firefox session. I followed advice on-line to remedy the problem and created a new profile then deleted the old profile. As described in the on-line process I was following, when deleting the profile the option came up: "delete files and profile" or "just delete profile". I selected "just delete profile". How can I link the files from the deleted profile to the new one? Also, deleting the profile didn't improve the excessive CPU usage. I'm not very technical.

Thanks for any guidance on either or both issues. RF

Hi all,

Is that a way to automatically upgrade Firefox without starting it? I've got GPOs in place to autoupdate it (set "application autoupdate" to 'enabled' and "disable update" to 'disabled'), but still not being able to upgrade if not using it.

I've got several users with other browsers and if they not use Firefox, it seems that the version is not upgrading and could be a lack of security.

What I am missing?

Thanks for your reply.

Firefox auto update has stopped working for me. Neither of the settings, see attached screenshot do anything, all I get is a popup saying a new version of firefox is available with a link to https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/ I recently did a clean install of Win 10 pro x64 and this problem may have started then. I have another PC on the same network where auto download of updates are still working. Hopefully someone can point me to a way to get this working again.

Hi,

Even though I live in Czech Republic, I set up Firefox to use English. After reading some help here I had to reinstall it using different (EN) installer. That's a bit odd but OK, it worked them.

But when Firefox installed an update, it was again in CZ. :/

Thanks for fixing that.
