I know Firefox recently changed some settings regarding automatic downloading of files, but I need to know how to stop Firefox from automatically downloading .pdf files that I view. Sometimes I just want to view a pdf without downloading the file. Firefox keeps automatically downloading the file, then after viewing it, I have to manually delete. I don't to do this! I just want to view the file and if I want to keep it, I'll save a copy. This is extremely annoying! Can I change the settings so that the file won't automatically save to my computer? Thanks

I've just suddenly had this problem starting today: downloading files through the browser is now automatically sending them to my computer's Downloads folder, even though I have my download settings set to 'Always ask you where to save files'. I double-checked to see if my settings had been reset by the update (they had not), and I even unselected and reselected the option to see if that helped anything (it didn't).

Since a recent Firefox update, the download button/icon in the task bar now shows the files(s) every time a 'Take A Screenshot' is used. It is becoming very annoying and the icon usually lights up in blue and the arrow becomes a circle when downloading. Can the window which opens with a list of files and 'Show All Downloads', when not selected to do so, be disabled? Thanks.

Before the most recent update (version 98.0), my default setting for pdf files is to open in Firefox and a pdf website I use prompted a download window when I clicked 'Download'. It has 'popupDownload=true' in the link which I believe did the trick.

After this update, clicking the same button just opens the pdf file instead of showing the download window, ignoring the command in the link.

Can anyone help me out? Thanks in advance.

I have always had my browser set to ask me where to save anything I'm downloading, as you can see by the attached screenshot. However, every single file I have downloaded for the past 2-3 days has first gone into my Downloads folder instead, forcing me to re-download the file in order to get it into the correct folder. If this was for personal usage, I wouldn't care, but having to continually download business files is getting old very very quickly. Firefox has been my default browser for the better part of two decades. I really don't want to switch to Chrome or Safari just because Firefox won't let a power user customize their usage experience.

Quicken downloads suddenly saving instead of opening

Until the last upgrade a few days ago, when I went to download Quicken data from my bank (on Firefox at the bank's website, NOT inside the Quicken program), I was given the option of saving or opening the .qfx file. Now, since the upgrade, it goes straight to a file I have to save and then click on.

I have tried adding Quicken files to the Applications settings in the Firefox settings, but it won't recognize anything when I put "Quicken" or ".qfx" in the search box. I have no idea how to fix this.

Hello Friends,

I installed the new Firefox Update, but I'm very unhappy with that. Because the Download Panel disturbs when I do many little Downloads and it is Shows every time. Is there any Chance to change that?

The second Problem I have is that I Download "dlc" Files and I want to Open them automatically in jDownloader, but the Option with "Always Open Similar Files" don't exist in the Download Panel so I can't say it should be opened with jDownloader. Is there any trick to get unknown Filetypes opened with a Program? With the Version before this it works without any problem.

Greetings René

Does anyone else have an issue opening documents? All of a sudden Firefox no longer allows me to open certain files. When I go to the settings, the only applications that I have options for are PDF, AV1F, XML, SVG and WebP Image. I seem to have lost the ability to selection "open", "save" or "always ask" for all other documents such as Word, Excel, etc. Screenshot included.

This seems to have happened out of nowhere.

Firefox now saves files that I only wanted to open

After today's update to version 98 Firefox keeps saving files to the Downloads folder when I don't want it to, I just want to open them, but not keep them, with this new behaviour the Downloads folder keeps filing up with useless clutter.

For example, before the update, when I downloaded a .zip file, a pop-up would show up asking if I wanted to save the file or open it with an application. If I chose to save it it would be saved to the Downloads folder, and if I chose to open it nothing would be saved to the Downloads folder.

After the update, when I download a .zip file, Firefox always saves the file to the Downloads folder, even if I choose to open it.

Can you please tell me if there is a way to make Firefox behave like in the previous version?

Hello!

I used to be able to open a file (with a program) without it being saved. Ever since 98.0, the "open" option saves the file regardless. I even had to find a work around to get the "What should Firefox do with this file?" prompt.

Is this no longer possible?

Thanks.

Hey Mozilla!

I'm a big fan of your product, and I use it on my Windows 10x64 PC and my Note10+ Android 12 smartphone.

Since your last update, there is a problem (on the PC mozillla browser): when a click a link to download a file, automaticly is open a new window that OPEN the file. Before the last update, when I was click-ing the link, I remember that the browser was open a small window and promt me to OPEN or to SAVE the file. Now, that function is missing. (I have checked different web sites, including whatsapp for desktop, the problem is persisting).

I haven't changed any settings, the box is checked for "Always ask you where to save files".

Thank you!

Best regards, Bogdan

Hello, in the latest Firefox version at this time, files are simply downloaded automatically. Is there any way to turn this off. In a way this is a security risk. Or maybe it is just a bug. I can't change anything under the general settings either. The steps from the existing problem solution have brought nothing. Does anyone have any ideas?

After latest update, Firefox won't let Adobe Digital Editions open/read .ascm files directly as intended

Maybe this is a bug report?

Adobe Digital Editions software is used by Archive.org, Open Library, Kobo store, and many other entities to deliver DRM-ed material in the form of .ascm files all named the same "URLLink.acsm" In the past, the download dialog box asked if you wanted to open the file in Adobe Digital Editions or save it to a location.

After the latest update today March 11, Firefox does not allow you to open the files in Digital Editions. It goes directly to "Save to" download location. This is not how the .acsm files are supposed to be handles. They all have the same name and are supposed to be opened into Adobe Digital Editions directly.

In Firefox Settings there is a box for - "Applications

Choose how Firefox handles the files you download from the web or the applications you use while browsing."

However, .acsm files do not appear and typing ".acsm" or the filetype name "Adobe Content Server Message" yields nothing inside this box so I cannot get Firefox to open these files with Adobe Digital Editions.

This is beyond annoying. These files are meant to be opened straight by Adobe Digital Editions. I tested it on Chrome and Chrome lets you open them fine.

Either the "Applications Choose how Firefox handles the files you download from the web or the applications you use while browsing." box functionality needs to be fixed to recognize .acsm filetypes or the previous default functionality of allowing me to choose "Open with Adobe Digital Editions" or "Save to" for this filetype needs to be restored.

If there is some other way to get this functionality back in the most current Firefox version, please advise.

Thanks!
