When I try to download music I have purchased from Bandcamp (www.bandcamp.com) the file that downloads (regardless of if i choose AAC fomat or FLAC) downloads as a TextEdit file which I can usually expand with StuffItExpander. However this no longer works, yet it works fine on Safari.

URL of such a file is download URL of such a purchase

Bandcamp support are unaware of any issues - I updated to Firefox 75.0.1 with no difference in the outcome.

For about three weeks now, after restarting Firefox on my notebook, the bookmarks have always been displayed twice in the sidebar, although no changes have been made on my PC. Every time I have to delete the duplicate bookmarks. But then they appear twice on my PC. It just annoys me !!!

Firefox 75 on MacBook Air 10.15.4 | Why won't all of my Cached Web Content clear, manually or on close, despite all relevant settings activated (4.4 MB remain)?

I have also downloaded and tried a Firefox recommended "Clear Cache" toolbar add-on, to no avail.

If my computer collects more than 4.4 MB of cached data, the overage will clear. It's the 4.4 MB that won't disappear.

I am a long-time Firefox user who always clears cached content and site data prior to closing my browser, and I have never noticed this issue until two or three days ago.

My computer has only one installed plugin, i.e., Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0.

The attached images show my Privacy & Security settings.

Any suggestions? Thanks, in advance.

This mini menu often appears when clicking with the trackpad when I am in middle of editing a video or something. It often interferes with my other operations and if I accidentally choose one of the items in the menus the consequences are bad. Is there an option to disable this very annoying feature?

In FF 75, why doesn't awsum box have icon to identify tabs already open?

In the past, when I wanted to go to a tab I'd opened previously, I'd type a keyword in the awesome box in the taskbar. A drop-down box with possibilities appears. I'd get 10 search results, 5 new, some historic and one or 2 the ones I might be wanting to switch to. For these last ones, there'd be a grey icon on the left, so that I'd know which to click on. With FF75, the format has changed. For existing tabs, there is no icon, but the option 'switch to tab' is indicated to the right of the tab address. That is OK for a short tab address, but when it is long, like the one for this page, viz: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/desktop/tabs/form?search=In+FF+75%2C+why+doesn%27t+awsum+box+have+icon+to+identify+tabs+already+open%3F&step=aaq-question the option 'switch to tab' is way to the right and can't be seen as the drop-down box is fixed, can't be dragged wider, text in box can't be moved. To take the guesswork out of which to select and to avoid opening a new tab, PLEASE can we have teh indicative grey icon back again!

With two tabs in use, my fully updated Firefox uses 350 MB of memory or more, about 36% of available memory on this 2013 Windows 10 Pro Dell.

Is this level of memory usage typical, or possibly indicative of a problem?

[Background: My only problem is some web pages taking a long time to load, which could have many possible causes of course. I do employ most of the available security protection in Firefox Options/Privacy and Security, judt use Windows security software for monitoring, show no viruses on Malwarebytes.... I have never before now looked at Task Manager Processes with just a browser running, nothing else. I have checked out the online recommendations.]

Just downloaded Ff on new W10 laptop. No add-ons, but Ff hamburger icon options and Right-click options never worked:

(This is from my Desktop computer, so can't Share Data.) New laptop computer, with pre-installed W10, obviously trying to ram Edge down my throat. I knew from a previous computer that that is rubbish, and it actually has the same problem. Surely that must throw some light. And MS Edge won't even accept bloody MS's own Japanese IME email input, or probably any of the other languages I use (the even more execrable Windows Mail being unusable), which my newly installed latest version of Ff does. I can't bear to look yet, but I know Edge will have been reset as default browser behind my back.

Returning faulty ebay laptop with my Firefox data on it - I bought a new laptop on ebay and had already downloaded Firefox when I discovered the machine was faulty. The seller has agreed to take it back and refund, but I am worried that the laptop now has all my passwords, bookmarks etc. Is there a way I can un-sync the faulty machine but keep all the Firefox data I need on my old machine? I am not at all tech-savvy, so need help in very basic terms, please! Thank you, namaste.

I am unable to log in to ANY page requiring my password when using Firefox. Chrome works fine for me. I don't want to reset passwords as I just went thru and did those as a regular update. What has happened to Firefox that it won't let me use any of my sites I need to log in to?
