Win 7 Home Premium Firefox Version 101.0.1

'Privacy & Security'->'Cookies and Site Data', 'Clear Data.'

When 'Clear Now,' Cached Web Content; is clicked, it does not zero out. (It used to clear completely).

The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset.

This issue started on the morning (Pacific time) of June 26-Is this a known glitch or am I missing a detail?

Hi, Downloading files to a system directory (Linux) such as /home/me/doc/here /home/me/doc/there Have Ask me where to save files checked.

But lastDir is not a real directory I can navigate, such as /run/user/1000/doc/3dcccd48

This causes the user needs to navigate sometimes very long system directory tree for each successive file download.

In about:config I set:

 browser.download.lastDir 
 browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite	false	
 browser.open.lastDir

But every time these are obfuscated to something like: /run/user/1000/doc/3dcccd48

This introduces about 10 user interactions with mouse/keyboard for each file I download in succession.

How do I get FF to stop obfuscating real system directories for "lastDir"

Really really appreciate the help :)

Firefox created a second Downloads folder/library when it opens a PDF to view in the browser.

file:///C:/Users/Name/Documents/Downloads/NightSkyNotesJan2022OrionDetail.pdf

I seem to remember finding lots of temp pdfs and other files in a temp folder under user/appdata/local or roaming and having to delete this files manually from time to time. Putting the files in an easy to find folder is a good step but my Downloads Library/folder had previously been moved to D:\Downloads via choose new target from the library properties. D drive is an internal HD, C drive is an SSD. Why didn't Firefox just use the existing Downloads library instead of creating a new one on the C drive?

Ideally, if you are viewing a pdf in a Firefox tab it would delete the file if you did not download it so it does not clog up your drives. If I know i want to keep a pdf I would save to my chosen folder and view in Acrobat instead of reading in a browser tab.

I agree with a previous post i saw requesting an option for the user to specify a temp file folder on another drive when viewing pdfs to preserve some life on the SSD boot drive.

When I join a Google Hangout and try to share my entire screen, Firefox always prompts me whether to share a window or the entire screen. I always want to share the entire screen. But when I enable the checkbox for "Remember this decision" I get this warning: Firefox can not allow permanent access to your screen.

Why does this happen? Is it because I'm on a unbuntu or is it specific to ubuntu Catalina?

When I start a private window on FireFox, that same private window still has all the browsing history attached to my "normal" FireFox windows.

Ideally, I'd like to start Private Mode and have FireFox start from "zero": No access to past browsing data.

Is there a setting that allows for this?

Hello! Hoping someone can help with this new (to me) issue. I've searched and can't seem to find any articles/threads.

When I open the wifi menu on my laptop, I also see a media player featuring a video I watched three days ago (image attached). I've used my computer several times since then and didn't notice it. It also doesn't appear to be functional, as when I click play, nothing happens.

Is there a setting I'm missing to get this to go away and to prevent it from coming back again?

Thanks in advance!

I have been using firefox on ubuntu 22 for more than a month and everything was working fine untill 4 days earlier when i first got error relating to security certificate issue and data hijacking. But i have been using same sites earlier too without any issue. Also those sites are just articles on site without any personal information. From last 2 days i am also getting redirecting issues. First site to redirect to during google search is bestbonusprize.life then if i disable adblocker it just keep redirecting. I don't have any issue accessing same site in google chrome. I just have firefox installed till 4 days earlier, but when i start getting issues i installed chrome to test if i am getting same issue but all work good in chrome. One of the main change from earlier is i was in different location using different wifi provider. It could be one of the issue but i am not sure as other people using same wifi don't have much issues. Plus things work fine in chrome. I tried using anti-malware but malwarebyte is only available for window and i don't know any thing about anti-virus and malware removal for ubuntu as never needed it. Please guide me for securing my firefox browser. Regards.

Got a tough one: First time I have seen this problem: FF portable has an executable out front up top, and an executable in a deeper 32-bit folder and a 64-bit folder. Any modifications to the browser, including themes and colors and appearance mods ...are displayed when you open the browser to surf, (32-bit,) but if I click from an email link - it opens the uppermost executable instead - with none of the mods I have made to the browser. (So the browser as it first appeared on install, with no/zero/nada customizations and extensions.) I cannot see how to make an email link refer to the deeper executable. Get it? Thanks for any assistance. (!)
