Before the new update whenever I downloaded a file it would ask where to save the file to every time, now it just asks once then automatically saves any new files I download to the same folder as the previous ones, forcing me to then go to that folder and manually move it to the correct folders. Is there any way to change it back to the right way it was done before they decided to remove our choice? My setting is set to "Always ask you where to save files", with the emphasis on "Always".

I am in the process of moving all of our passwords into 1Password. However, I discovered that my wife has her Firefox set to auto login, but can't remember her user name and password. So, although she can use it, she can't change update the password. The fact that on setup, auto login is the default makes this doubly frustrating. So, is there any way to get to the password?

Why can't I delete the 32bit Firefox off of my 64bit computer with Windows 10 Programs and feathers? I have been using Firefox for many years and have loved it, but now it it looks like it is moving into this far left stupidity and am thinking of dropping it and it makes me sad. I sure hope that this slide into this socialist evil stops soon! Their are so many good people that have helped develop this program for all of the world and what is happening now would be such a disservice to them. God bless you all that have helped to develop FireFox! Don USMC Retired.

I imagine this belongs in the customize controls area as it's part of settings that we are supposed to have control over and after messing around and changing everything to ask first I am still unhappy. At least I found the reason for my displeasure after reading about the new release of FF98.

Why did you change the protocol for saving files? Not having that dialog box pop up is very inconvenient. I haven't tried to play any files since FF 98 downloaded to my pc but I bet it's equally as annoying. Please go back to the old way in your next release. Some of us are in the camp of Who Moved My Cheese and we don't like this new change. It's bad enough that I have to deal with black background on menus etc due to the background I chose but this is nuts. Thank you.

Firefox is steadily being unusable for me. On numerous occasions websites fail to show log in pop ups etc which work without issue in Chrome. Latest example : https://www.gog.com/en/games Clicking "Sign in" should show a pop up to allow me to sign in. In Firefox this does not show. I thought it may be a "pop-up" issue, so deselected "Block pop-up windows" in settings. Still the same. I added the website as an exception and still the same. Anyone have any ideas what is going on ? TIA, ZTB

running Firefox 98.0.1 on windows 10

I recently started using Firefox again and all my themes started zooming out/moving to the right hand side and some even duplicated multiple times across my top bar. It's most noticeable on themes that arent meant to be looped like that (see japan rain in attached photo)

is there anyway to fix this/work out what is causing it? None of my extensions modify my taskbar in anyway (photo attached) and i never changed any display settings in windows.

Thank you in advance

In the past, when ICS files were in a mail, I had been asked what to do, and could open them in OUTLOOK. This option has been apparently cancelled and it only asks where to save the file, without any option to open it directly. Furthermore, when I try to modify it in the "settings" and change it to "Always ask" I can't find no ICS files nor OUTLOOK SCHEDULE files. Please advice. Thanks

Fixing the new way of opening files

Hello,

Starting Firefox 97, opening a file involves downloading it the same way as if I choose to save it. It results in both Download folder and downloads list in the browser being polluted with a million of files I only wanted to open once with a specific app (pdfs, xls, m3u etc.).

Previously Firefox was using a hidden internal folder for saving such files and deleting them later, so Open In App really meant "open, do not save locally". Now any option just means "Save the file to the Download folder and let it be there forever".

How can I fix this unsuccessful UX decision apart from downgrading to an older version?

Thank you.

P.S. "If you dislike new features in the latest version of Firefox, your first reaction might be to go back to the previous version. Rather than downgrading, try getting used to the new features..." is probably the worst suggestion you can possibly give to someone with their workflow broken by a sudden update they can't decline with a feature they never asked for.
