Adding New Filetypes to Download List

I am following directions on this page, which is supposed to be applicable to my version Firefox 78.0.1 on my Windows 10 Pro 64 system: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/… (read more)

I am following directions on this page, which is supposed to be applicable to my version Firefox 78.0.1 on my Windows 10 Pro 64 system:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file#w_adding-download-actions

But when I come to the subheading, "Adding Download Actions", it shows a dialog window which is unlike the one I get. Of the two images I've attached, the article shows the larger while I am offered the smaller. The article says the "Do this automatically" checkbox may be disabled, but doesn't mention it being absent: "Is Do this automatically for files like this from now on disabled? This can happen if the website's server incorrectly specifies the Internet Media type of the file. It also can happen if the server assigns "Content-Disposition: attachment" to the file. Could be the case here. Whether it is or not isn't important. What is important, is adding filetypes. I have no qualms with editing the registry if necessary. Can someone help me out with this?

Two things: 1. change default selected option in pdf tab, 2. permission requests not working with 78.0.1

I have two questions:

1st one:

Sadly I didn't know my browser had automatic updates on and now I got updated to 78.0.1. You added this nice feature that allows opening pdf files instead of downloading them or opening them in external software. very good, i needed that sooo many times already when pages forced me to download trash instead of letting me view in browser. My problem is, that I usually need to download files. Still I want to be asked everytime what to do

 -> I want that whenever a download request for pdf happens, the "download file" is selected by default (instead of the "open pdf in browser"). Also I want to be asked so I am afraid firefox won't ask me anymore if I check the "always do this" checkbox. Is there a way to be asked about what to do with the pdf with a different default option than "open in browser"? Or is the checkbox exactly what I need to check? I just don't want to break my browser...
2nd one:

Since personal meetings disappeared we are using WebEx. Until my browser updated whenever I joined the meeting-URL a popup opened that created a "bridge" to the webex app where I would be connected to the room I just opened in browser. Since my browser updated these popups don't come up anymore which makes joining a webex room a ... little bit complicated. The same goes for discord -> before the update discord in browser asked for permission to use my microphone. Now I am not asked anymore if I want to share my mic. Nothing happens and I am muted in discord. Please tell me how to solve this. Thx in advance!

Hi,

About 4 to 6 weeks ago I messed up my main/home/Whatever named file:///home/kline/.mozilla/local/hotlist.html <an html file with 2-deep links to other bookmarks>. Upon reboot I must have done *something* that messed up everything. The "3-dot", "pocket", "star" was either moved leftward or vanished ... Now that clever 4-icon { |||\ } that used to bring up whatever I had bookmark was gone.

Can anybody help me?

I recently reinstalled firefox and now my search suggestions won't work properly. They only seem to work when i check the box "Top sites" in the adress bar section of privacy and security. The suggested sites doesn't change when i check other boxes. It either shows a set selection of sites when i have "Top sites" checked or nothing when it isn't checked. The set of sites it shows when it's checked contains some popular sites and some sites from my browsing history. The list doesn't update and just stays the same.

I want to have "Top sites" turned off and have it so that my most visited sites are suggested first.

Please help, i really want that setting back!

I get a blank white page when I open Firefox. It loads my home page when I first turn on PC. It will not load my homepage once I've closed firefox and the re-open it. It loads my homepage if I disable add-ons. The only addons i have are OpenH264 and Wildvine Decryption. I disable those but that doesn't help. Restore previous session is un-checked. I've gone into config and made sure browser.startup.page was set to 1.

I want to make my secondary email address for my firefox account my primary email address. I searched for help, and found that I am supposed to just select my secondary email address and click on "make primary". But when I sign in to "manage account", my only option for secondary email address is to "add". I already have done that, and it definitely won't let me do it again, but also it doesn't show up so there is no way to change it. Please help. I'm new to Firefox and generally like it, but this is very frustrating as I keep getting caught in a circle.

How to launch firefox automatically in LOW PRIORITY? Before, it was not complicated with a single optimized process. But for a year now, Firefox has been configured in relation to Gaming PCs with 8-16GB of RAM, 4K video and Games which uses PNG of 4MB in animation. It is almost a luxury to be able to use several software at the same time (photoshop, windows, firefox ...). And I'm not talking about all the crap associated with protecting flouted data.

NOTA: Your single process option does not work: it already generates 6 which are not optimized. When you delete the biggest one, all the others close. So I don't see the point of this configuration.

Hi I noticed in a recent update when you right-click a tab, the 'Close tabs to the right' and 'Close other tabs' options are nested in 'Close Multiple Tabs' menu. As someone who deals with tabs a lot, this slows down my productivity. Is there a setting within Firefox where I can go back to the old design (where those options aren't nested within another menu)?
