I noticed during a firmware download with the file extension .DAT that Firefox removed the extension. The file was not recognizable during an attempted firmware upgrade afterward. This is a new issue occurring sometime in the past several months, since last firmware update. Firefox preferences are set to download .DAT files. No other settings are listed for that file extension. I verified the issue points toward Firefox by checking the download with another web browser which completed the download with the extension.

I've noticed that with Firefox 102 when I download an exe file, in this case Thunderbird Setup 102.0.exe it is renaming it to Thunderbird Setup 102.0.exe.bin.

Why is that happening now? I know the "potential risk" or downloading an .exe file but shouldn't it ask or at least warn you instead of just deciding to rename it

I didn't see a setting to disable this "feature". Is there one?

Thanks

Whenever I press space to scroll one page down the cursor dissapears. The same thing happens when I press `. As soon as I move the mouse it reappears but this is unwanted and annoying behavior which didn't happen in the past. I'm not sure when it started happening but it hasn't been long since that. I tried restarting with all the plugins turned off but that didn't help. I'm using the latest version of FF on Win 7 x64.`

"Delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" setting not remembered - I have this ticked but when I restart Firefox, it is UNticked. I created a new clean profile, and the same thing happens with that. This started I think once I updated to version 102.0 64bit recently, and seems to have broken Twitter login - each time I have to go to settings, and clear history - after doing some experiments as to what bit of History needed clearing, it was the setting "offline site data" that was the critical one. Why won't Firefox, even in a brand new profile with no addons, REMEMBER that I have ticked ""Delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" setting not remembered"? Firefox desktop, 102.0 64 bit, Windows 7. Thank you.

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 :)

I imported my bookmarks from a windows 8.1 computer to Parrot Linux Debian desktop (2 different computers). I am missing the everything from 'Other Bookmarks' after I imported it into the Linux computer, I can see all everything from 'Bookmarks Menu' though. The windows machine is not working anymore. But I have a saved copy of all the bookmarks from the windows 8.1 computer.

Is there a reason my import left out the Other Bookmarks but imported the Bookmarks Menu? How do get them into the linux firefox browser.

Hi, I'm using version 101.0.1 (64 bit) for Ubuntu 22.04. When I open a link of a pdf file, the file is displayed in the built-in viewer, since I chose "Open in Firefox" in my settings. But then if I click the download icon nothing happens. If I click the print icon and choose "print to pdf" in the popup, then clicking on "save" does nothing and I have to click "cancel" to dismiss the popup.

Actually there is no way to save a pdf file but setting PDF app to "Ask always" and then open it with "System handler", but then the file is saved into the default download folder, even though I selected the checkbox "Always ask me where to save files" in my settings.

EDIT: the issue was solved by installing the following packages, as shown in this question :

xdg-desktop-portal xdg-desktop-portal-gtk

I am using the latest Firefox version 102.0 and I have igHome set as my home page. Yesterday the Google Calendar Gadget would no longer display the calendar but would display this message:

Firefox Can’t Open This Page To protect your security, accountsgooglecom will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window.

If I click on the “Open Site in New Window” button it does open the calendar. (See attached screenshot.) I have tried login out and back into igHome and my Google account but it doesn’t fix the issue. This is happening on both my laptop and desktop computers running Windows 10 Home. All Windows updates are up to date. I opened Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode and the calendar still does not show. When I use the Google Chrome browser with the same igHome home page the Calendar works fine. Is this something Firefox can fix, or do I need to contact Google?

Hello,

The issue is as follows: unless I use 'alerts.useSystemBackend = true' (which I don't want to do), I'm not getting any push notifications.

Using this test site: https://www.bennish.net/web-notifications.html - the logs goes as follows: Notification #1 queued for display Notification #1 closed

What I've tried: troubleshooting mode, reinstalling firefox, using a completely fresh&clean installation, and even reinstalling windows. Even after reinstalling windows and immediately installing firefox, the problem persists. However, it doesn't happen on another machine I've tested on, everything works perfectly there.

What could possibly be the problem? Please help!
