When I tried processing an NZB today, it just saved the file with no prompts...previously, I had it set up to ask what to use to open (Newsbin Pro or Forte Agent). When I went into the Settings for Applications, yes, it simply had "save file" selected. I changed it to "always ask" and tried again. So annoyance #1; it reset my preferences...WHY? That's happened before with updates, and really SHOULDN'T

This time, it asked, but there was no program listed as an option, and "Save File" button was selected. I clicked on "Open With" and "Browse" and selected Newsbin Pro. The next one I tried, it brought up the window, but, AGAIN, no program name was there...I had to browse to select Newsbin Pro AGAIN. Annoyance #2; it will NOT save the program.

I AM able to select either "use Forte Agent" or "use Newsbin Pro" and it will open the NZB automagically in the selected program, but I want the ability to choose, with the way it worked before, where the last program I used is the default. WHY did that change?

Separate but related question; even when I select "Open With", it STILL downloads the file and saves it in My Downloads, which it didn't used to do before; if I selected "Open With" it would simply open the attachment in the program, and not save it to the folder. Why did THAT change?

Running Windows 10, Firefox 102.0.1 (64 bit).

Hi,

I like to know if there wasn´t an update notification in Firefox that tells me that updates are ready to install. I set Updates in opitons to " Check for updates, but ask before installing". In Thunderbird i got a green notification icon next to the three dashes on the right side. I thought i could remember it was the same in Firefox too. But it doesent appear as it seems.

Or am i missing something?

Thanks fpr help

When typing in the search bar, recommendations start to appear (how I have my browser set-up). Default is to press the down arrow key to move down to the next suggestion. Is there a way to reverse this so pressing up rather than down will do the same action?

Is there a value that I can modify in about:config or write a line of CSS code to accomplish this?

How to disable the automatic display of the URL and Search DROPDOWN PANELS when clicking these fields?

Hello everyone,

are there equivalent options to 'browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel' (see https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370567#answer-1521671) that would allow to DISABLE the automatic display of the URL and Search fields' panel?

I find these panels visually too invasive, and I don't need them most of the time (while being happy of their existence, but I'd expect them to appear when I ask, not each and every time I click the URL or Search field!).

If no such options exist, would it be possible to add them?

Thank you :)

Hello,

I am trying to change the text highlighting color, the blue color when I select text to copy and paste. It used to be the same color as my accent color in Windows settings, but now it has changed back to blue despite me not changing anything. This same color was also showing in the extension SoundFixer, which has 2 sliders using the same color, which is now blue. How can I change the color back to using my Windows accent color?

For a while now, Firefox does not close the last instance's volume slider in the volume mixer screen (sndvol.exe)

I have researched extensively but have been unable to fix the issue. The last resolution came from Mozilla Help, suggestion I untick the "Use recommended performance settings" under Settings > Permormance.

I'm trying to watch Amazon Prime video on my PC, but the full screen viewing is pretty bad. (first image attached.)

I'm trying to use the included Picture-in-Picture feature to pop out the video and make it full screen, but after I drag it to my desired location, and release the mouse button, the video shifts down until the top of the popout video window is within the monitor if that makes any sense. I'll include a picture of that as well.

Any way to allow the popout video to sit partially outside the monitor?

Since upgrading to Firefox 103.0.1 on Linux Mint I am noticing that clicking on the URL bar or typing anything into it now adds "Search with Google" and "Search with Amazon" in the dropdown URL suggestions. This is unwanted behaviour since I have those search engines disabled.

In searching for an answer I found some old suggestions such as setting browser.urlbar.unifiedcomplete to false. However this no longer works.

I have read hours of Q&A about this problem here in this forum before posting, and cannot find a solution.

Until very recently, whenever I would click a link in a page, it would "Open in Firefox" in a new tab. Then after reading it or printing it or whatever I wanted to do, I could click the download [Fx98PDFviewer-DownloadButton] button if I wanted to save it, and an Explorer would open up allowing me to select where I want to put it and what I want to call it (if I wanted to change the name it comes with) before downloading/saving.

Now, when I click a link it just downloads (even though most of the time I don't want that). Despite all I've read, I've tried a dozen settings, and I CANNOT get that behavior back.

If I set the browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to False, and select "Open with Firefox" when it prompts me, I can't get it to STOP prompting me. It prompts me EVERY TIME, even though I have checked the box repeatedly for "Do this automatically for files like this from now on"

And yet it is STILL downloading automatically when it opens for viewing in the new tab, and I am forever now cleaning and deleting crap out of my downloads.

I have my default PDF reader set to the reader I like, and when I'm NOT in Firefox, I do NOT want to have to right-click and select my preferred reader each time.

But when I AM IN FIREFOX, what I need it to do is

- Open in Firefox, in a new tab, 
- DON'T prompt me, just do it, and 
- DON'T download it, unless if I then want to keep it I click the download [Fx98PDFviewer-DownloadButton] button.

HOW CAN I GET IT THIS BEHAVIOR BACK PLEASE?
