I regularly use the PrintFriendly website to create and download PDFs. In the past, I have always been able to choose where I download the files to on my Windows 10 PC. Recently, I have been unable to do so -- the files are always downloaded to the Downloads folder. I have set my browser to "Always ask" (see picture), but that doesn't make any difference. Is there something else that I need to do? Thank you!

Hi I subscribe to Campanies like Ancestry, MyHeritage and Find My Past to help with my research. They send "hints" to the RootsMagic software I have on my computer. Clicking the relevant button then normally takes me to online information about the people I am researching. However clicking on the Find My Past button always results in an error meassge: statusCode 400 error "Bad Request" message "Invalid cookie header"

On contacting Find My Past they just say it is probably a browser problem. I have tried deleting Firefox and re-installing it but I continue to get the same error messages.

Any help would be much appreciated please. Regards Peter

I use Firefox to read books in pdf format. I want to record the location everytime I close the pdf file so that I can easily go back to where I leave last time. But I notice no matter where I am in the file, the url does't change. I think it's the reason why everytime I click the bookmarked file and the Firefox just open the file on the first page, not the location I leave last time. Is there any way to record the location I leave?

Firefox browser opens minimized - about half size. Support article suggests a refresh, tried that and it works for the first time the browser is opened after the refresh and then reverts to the same size.

Another suggestion was to delete the xulstore.json file as it may be corrupt. Done that several times. Each time, that solution works for the first time the browser is opened. Beginning with the second time, the behavior returns.

I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. Same result. Works for the first time the browser is opened.

I have no extensions or plug-ins installed other then what exists from the default browser. I am running the current version of Firefox, Windows 11, fully updated system with plenty of RAM and disk space.

Thanks!

This is clearely skooky behavior in my opinion and I really don't want this extension

I hope migration is what I am seeking. I've not used my Desktop for a couple of years. I used my iPhone during that time. I installed my desktop today. I sent myself, on my phone, a number of messages during the past two days and want to view/manipulate/edit them on my desktop.

I have tried everything I can think of, but cannot see those messages. All the messages I see beging with one week ago. Any ideas? I hope I hope. Many thanks.
