ZIP Files Downloading as PDFs

Background: I'm currently tutoring full-time, and the site I use allows tutors to download the session afterward as a .zip folder. In the past this has been incredibly helpful, because it allows me to review my lessons and improve my planning.

Current Issue: For some reason Firefox now appears to be misinterpreting these ZIP files as PDFs. When I begin the download, Firefox gives me the option to either open (as PDF) in Firefox, or to download. At this point (before any download occurs) Firefox has already labeled the file as a PDF. If I open it in Firefox, obviously it doesn't work (being a .zip folder.) If I download it, Windows Explorer usually lets me explore it as a .zip folder, but recently, about 10% of the files I download (even if I never open them as a PDF) still download as a PDF and are therefore inaccessible.

Fixes: I've tried downloading instead of opening with Firefox. This works about 90-95% of the time; not sure what the issue is. I've tried re-assigning the file type in Windows Explorer, to no avail. I've adjusted Firefox preferences (from "always ask" to "use Windows Explorer.") I'm not sure this will help, but will try.

Any advice? I hate to sound fussy, but I'm pretty meticulous about saving my lessons and hate losing that much data on my students. While I can save each file independently, it takes much longer. Thank you!

I am setting up Firefox on a new PC... I am running the latest version of Firefox (I think) version 84.0. I exported my logins on my old PC to a .csv file with no problem. Now, I'm trying get Firefox to load that file. I've seen help responses that talk about getting to a submenu in the Login/Password section, but those responses indicate that one of the choices should be "Import from a file". But I'm not seeing that choice. I see "Import from another browser" in that menu, but I don't see "Import from a file"... any suggestions?

I'm getting Profile Missing: Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.

I don't have a caches folder I can remove the contents of the application support folder and nothing changes.

When I go to open the profile manager I get:

MyName$ /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P Error: Access was denied while trying to open files in your profile directory.

      1. !!! [Parent][RunMessage] Error: Channel closing: too late to send/recv, messages will be lost

I tried running Disk Utility but it froze the machine as it's a time machine disk and that slows it down immeasurably.

What's my next option?

Dear community, for some days my Firefox 80 on Windows 10 has shown the message "your system administrator has deactivated updates", when I look under "Help" -> "about Firefox". This is strange, because the admin is me myself, and I didn´t change anything in Firefox or in the Win 10 registry. Has anyone of you had this experience, and how can I possibly fix it? Thanks in advance! Pete

Lately, every time I download a photoshop file, it now opens Photoshop and opens the file. How do I disable that from happening? I just want the file. I don't need to see it open. This has just been happening recently and I don't always need to open the files right away. It just slows my progress down and it's annoying! Thank you in advance!

So I recently installed Firefox beta. It installed on top of main firefox. Now I am in beta version 84 but if i try to open regular firefox release version 83 it says running an old version will corrupt profile data. It just has an option to create a new profile, so i am asking if there is a way to import my settings from my original profile or make my original profile run on version 83 or should I just wait for version 84 to be released in main firefox.

How can I get my settings and bookmarks from a cloned image of my old HDD. This is pretty annoying and making me think about leaving Mozilla. I've done what a support page advised and copied my data from one 'profile folder' (from the image) to another (internal drive). Not helping and displaying a 'The bookmarks and settings will not function properly' error message. I did not unfortunately create a proper backup prior to transferring drives so can't restore that way, assumed that things would more or less be a seamless sync through my Firefox account.

Would appreciate help here thanks.

My profile folder is C:\Users\hseib\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\pftm4b0j.Default User. It is the only profile under "Profiles". When I open the file "pftm4b0j.Default User" it looks like all my data successfully migrated from my old PC. But when I launch Firefox, no bookmarks, no passwords, no add-ins, no nothing. Any help welcome.
