Why does Firefox 3.6.12 truncate attachment file names containing blank spaces (Windows)?

Whenever someone sends me an attachment and I save it, Firefox truncates the file name if the file name contains blank spaces. I am running 3.6.12 under Windows 2000 SP4 right now. But this behavior has persisted for a long time, with earlier versions of Firefox and under Windows XP. Unfortunately, I cannot control the names of attachments people send me. As an example, if someone sends me a file named "file name.doc" (without quotes, of course), Firefox either displays it (via Micro$oft Word) or saves it as "file.doc". If I receive "filename.doc", that's how it gets saved.

There seems to be a javascript issue on youtube (+ other sites), as nothing happens when I click my username "tab" next to Sign Out, where a menu should expand. I've unintalled FF, reinstalled, removed most addons, and checked settings. Works in Chrome.

Also on youtube there's an issue with "James Blunt, live from London" bar at the top of the page not disappearing when I click the X.

Some bookmarks did not show up so I asked to restore (from the bookmark menu) - now all have disappeared. What files are the bookmarks stored in (in the system) So I can use the time machine to restore them from a previous date?

I do a lot of work on the web and I have a ton of bookmarks that I use to maintain various sites. I have lost them all!

I have tried to install a clean copy of the programme and restore the Mozilla file from the User Library (in time machine) but all I have is a white space where the bookmark toolbar was! I also have a problem in trying to enter all the bookmarks manually again. I can open the bookmark drop down but I cannot save any bookmarks. Firefox will not let me bookmark any new pages. I still have all the passwords in the preferences so I do not want to install a completely new copy of the programme and loose these.

Are there any other system files that Firefox uses that I can restore from the backup to solve the problem? I have a Mac Pro and I am running OSX 10.6.4 I have used Firefox for many years and never had a problem before. Can anybody help - please?

I cannot change my cookie settings because the Tools dropdown only contains a few of its normal options. And when I try to copy selected text, the right click menu pops up blank or else goes blank when I scroll over it to try and copy or paste. The other menus appear to be normal. I have been mysterily loosing some of the cookies I need for logins, etc. but I can't get to the advance options to modify my cookies.

I have done complete scans with both Norton and Microsoft Security Essentials and found no malware.

Firefox automatically inserts the sequence %E2%80%9D at the beginning and end of every hyperlink I enter in my blog, generating “Page not found” messages for the readers.

I publish a French-language blog hosted by canalblog.com. For the last few months, I keep finding a weird sequence in every link I put in:

%E2%80%9D

This appears at the very beginning and end of every hyperlink, (immediately after the opening quote mark and before the closing quote mark). I have determined that it is inserted automatically by Firefox when I leave the HTML mode, either to save my post or to preview it. Unless I remove the sequence manually, a “Page not found” error appears for anyone who clicks on my links.

I have also determined that the bug does not appear if I enter my posts through Safari.

I’m getting a little sick of re-editing every post to delete those sequences after the fact. Can someone do something about it?

I was looking for a trail map, and received a message that I should download ALOT first. I did so, without knowing what it was. I now want to get ride of it. I am using Windows 7 on my HP computer. I went in to the control panel and looked for ALOT on the uninstall programs list, but it wasn't there. Then I followed the instructions on ALOT help to uninstall. It told me goodbye and sorry I was leaving, but ALOT IS STILL ON MY SCREEN. How do I get rid of it?

I was forced to upgrade to the new 3.6.12 version. In the older version I had, if the program crashed or if I deliberately stopped Firefox by stopping it in Processes with End Task, when I restarted Firefox a box would come up asking me if I want to start a new session or go back to the old session. Well the default now seems to be with the new version it will take you back to where you were when it crashed or was stopped via processes and doesn't give you a choice. I have searched Tools multiple times and cannot find anything that will give me the option described above.

The thing is, I will stop Firefox by using End Task in processes when I come across a page/site that pops up a box asking me if i really want to navigate away from the page, rather than clicking on the pop up box or a site that starts popping up windows all over the place.

Can someone direct me to where I can tell my browser to ask me if I want to start a new session when this happens? And please tell me why .. any time a software is upgraded or new and improved, it always ends up taking away choices?

Hello Firefoxies,

Is there an "insert all links" type of feature or add-on for Firefox that works with Thunderbird or any email app? I want to be able to insert all the links from a Firefox bookmarks folder automatically in to an outgoing email and include the names that I have given to those saved links / bookmarks.

I searched for this add-on on the Firefox and the Thunderbird sites, but I don’t think the one that I found is for what I am thinking of.

What I would like to do is to be able to add all the links in a saved tabs folder, or any bookmarks folder, from Firefox in to the body of an outgoing email preferably in Thunderbird, or any email app... so I could just click and all the links and hopefully all the names that I have given to those links will then appear in the body of an outgoing email automatically, ready for me to then write what I want, plug in an address, and send.

When I did a search of add-ons on the Firefox and Thunderbird sites, I found something called “Open all links 0.3.1” on the Thunderbird site that I think is for the opposite of my description... I think this add-on is to automatically open all the links in an email that is received... which IS NOT what I want to do... I want to place all the links that I have in a Firefox bookmarks folder in to an outgoing email... the URL to the “Open all links 0.3.1” add-on is below for you to look at just in case I am reading this wrong...

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/2913/

Otherwise, I could not find any add-on that fits my description.

Thanks so much,

numetro

Recently, I have not been able to download any types of files using Firefox. When I try to, the download will instantly say its completed, regardless of the file size, but the the options to "open" and "open containing folder" are greyed out. The files do not appear in the folder in Windows explorer. I have the DownThemAll extension installed, and using that I am able to download files. I can also download files normally using Google Chrome.
