Regarding PDF downloads in new web browser

Hello! I updated the my browser to v 98.0 (64-bit) on my Manjaro Linux with 5.10.102-1-MANJARO kernel.

The browser works fine. However, there is one thing which is completely breaking my workflow is the new way Firefox handles its PDF downloads.

Previously: - if I used to click on PDF links such as (http://www.africau.edu/images/default/sample.pdf) see google-chrome img they opened in browser and if I downloaded the PDF it would ask me where to store the file. - Downloading PDF on WhatsApp, University website, LinkedIn like apps, it would prompt the "Always Ask" prompt

After the update the applications settings have changed

Now: It is either "always ask" (even in case of links like: http://www.africau.edu/images/default/sample.pdf which is annoying or if I change the setting to "Open in Firefox" on downloading material, when clicked without CTRL+Click (my previous workflow I simply used to click to download material) opens the downloaded PDF in-place so the loaded University website or whatsapp app is closed.

I am really annoyed and I've cycled through all the application settings and none of them seem to work like before.

How do I fix this?

Thank you so much for your help.

Best wishes.

Hello, I am having problems with the download popup. Normally fire fox would give me a menu "what should firefox do with this file". Starting 3/11/2022 that popup does not show up anymore. I found that feature pretty helpful. Does anyone know how to put it back up? I already have the setting Always ask you where to save files checked.

I want to open online PDFs in Acrobat. I've modified the setting is in Firefox to "Always ask," yet when I click on a PDF it opens as it should AND Firefox automatically downloads the file to the Downloads folder even though that destination is greyed out in settings and the radial button for "Always Ask" is selected. How can I block this activity in either Firefox or in the registry.

NOTE: ALL OF THE SETTINGS IN FIREFOX SAY "ALWAYS ASK." This a software bug in Firefox, not a user switch setting. This activity began today (March 11, 2022) after months of normal, expected activity. I've reset Firefox and I've done a complete uninstall and clean install and this still happens.

Yesterday, this suddenly started to happen.

When I download something, the list of Ongoing Downloads stayed open. It never did that before.

Until the recent update to v98, if/when I downloaded a kdbx file (from Google Drive, if that matters) - there was an association to Keypass to immediately open the file using Keypass. Since the update, this no longer happens - now, I can either select to automatically download the file ..or prompt where I want to download the file.

I'm unable to make additions to the Applications file types, and the only documented means of making that addition also does not happen for .kdbx files. I haven't tried other file types...

Oddly, my .nzb association was maintained, but the functionality now downloads the .nzb files to my specified download location rather than to temp files so I didn't have to bother with cleaning up.

I just noticed, this AM, that when I'm viewing PDF files using Adobe DC it is now automatically downloading the files, where as, before I could just view them. I've not changed any settings-see attached screen shot. So I don't know what changed. I don't know if this is a FF issue and/or a Adobe issue or what. I now have to go into File explorer and delete all the downloaded files. I would appreciate anyone's comments. Thanks

Hi

I don't know what's happened to cause this, but for the last few days if I grab a torrent file online, I only get the option to save the file, no option to automatically open in my torrent client.

I have been to Firefox general settings, and Applications - "Choose how Firefox handles the files you download from the web or the applications you use while browsing" but .torrent is not listed. When I search "torrent" in the Applications search box, I get only "magnet" as a result, nothing for "torrent" files (see image).

Any advice on how to automatically open .torrent files from the web in my torrent client would be appreciated.

This is more of a convenience issue but the new download panel pop-up from the download arrow is very distracting. I couldn't find an option to turn it off so I had to go into the config and turn the true flag false for this "improvement". Is there a better way of disabling this pop-up and if not will there be in future versions of firefox?

Thank you for your help.

Lately, within the last 60 days, when ever I download something a notification banner listing my downloads appears at the top of the screen. The banner DOES NOT go away on it's own. I have to click on the page somewhere to get rid of it.

My question is: how do I turn this off?

I did not turn it on or even want such a banner. I used to only see this banner when I right clicked on the download icon, what changed?

Thank you for your help.

Every time I do a new (first) save to a firefox item, I get an annoying brief display showing files which were opened.

I don't need such a display and would like to turn it off: It is distracting and might cause me to miss a REAL error message.

I am attaching a gif photo of this display, which is new to the latest firefox.

How can I turn off this feature?

I use a lot of excel files with ETM and when I pull a report, I need it to open with excel in a CSV file. That open no longer appears in the setting list.

When I try to open the report, it just takes me to a folder to download the report and then I have to manually open it with excel.

Can that please be fixed. It was working fine and then I noticed my firefox was updated last night, and this morning I can no longer use it correctly.

Now with this new update, pdf files always open in browser. In the previous version, even when configured in the settings, the file was downloaded from some websites when this was the case. In other words, the browser is not respecting the rule defined by the website itself of downloading the file and not opening it within the browser. Now, the files always opens in-browser, it's very annoying. It looks like it's a bug. Please fix it.
