I am currently on Firefox 84.0 on Windows 10.

Every time I download any type of file, Firefox puts the file inside of (C:) > Users > tmmor > AppData > Local > Temp. This is extremely frustrating because I have to manually move the files to my 'Downloads' folder every time I download a new file. I have changed my settings numerous times. In Options > General > Files and applications. I have selected the "Save files to" and I have changed it to many different locations and my files still end up in (C:) > Users > tmmor > AppData > Local >Temp. I have even resorted to selecting the setting "Always ask you where to save files." After closing and reopening the browser, I try to download something and Firefox never prompts me to select a download location (Contrary to my settings). Firefox just automatically downloads the file and puts it in (C:) > Users > tmmor > AppData > Local > Temp.

After looking for solutions online I have went into "about:config" and I found out that "browser.download.dir" was already set to "C:\Users\tmmor\Downloads" (My intended location) and "browser.download.lastDir" was already set to the same location. I have also set "browser.download.useDownloadsDir" from false to true. Firefox still puts my downloads into (C:) > Users > tmmor > AppData > Local > Temp.

I am also the administrator on my device. I am not aware of any windows settings that are blocking Firefox from putting my downloads into my "Downloads" folder. Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome put my downloads into my "Downloads" folder every single time I download something, why cant Firefox do the same?

I also do not believe that any of my extensions or plug-in's are causing this issue, I have very few extensions and plug-in's.

Firefox is persistent at saving my downloads to (C:) > Users > tmmor > AppData > Local > Temp. I have never gotten Firefox to save my downloads to my intended location (The downloads folder). Can anyone please instruct me how to resolve this issue. This is my last resort to solving this problem, nothing has worked for me. Thank you for your time, this experience has been stressful for me.

Everytime I update to a new Firefox, I lose my auto logins on sites. I have to get out my Password list and manually login to every frikkin' site. I keep putting off updating, hoping that maybe the problem has been fixed, but like Lucy pulling the football from Charlie Brown, I give in and update and WHAM!

If this can't be fixed, is there a way to disable auto Firefox updates or even that nagging box in the upper right hand corner.

I don't do a lot of surfing on my PC any more, so to have this continually happen over and over again is extremely aggravating!

I use multiple Firefox profiles. Normally, Profile Manager always appears at launch.

But lately, if I launch Firefox while a profile is already open, it just opens a new window in the current profile. The only way I can get Profile Manager is by typing firefox.exe --profilemanager.

For the record, I don't have this option enabled: Use the selected profile without asking at startup.

I just installed the esr version of Firefox. I did not think that I would lose all my bookmarks, add-on, etc. Is there a way to revert back to the standard version with all my old data? Or in looking at the profiles I see a default profile, a default-esr profile, and a default-release profile. This latter profile seems to have my old data when I open the folders and look around. However, when I try to open that profile in new window it says something about opening an old version and losing data and creating a new profile. When I do that, I still get a fresh browser with none of my data.

Dzień dobry, bardo proszę o udzielenie informacji czy znany jest Państwu problem eksportu sesji treningowej do pliku .tcx? Podczas eksportu sesji treningowej za pomocą przeglądarki Firefox v. 84.0.2 pliki .tcx automatycznie pobierają się do pliku .xml. W przypadku pobierania plików .tcx za pomocą przeglądarki Chrome v. 87.0.4280.141 problem nie występuje, również w przypadku pliku zipowanego pobierane dane są z rozszerzeniem .tcx w dwóch przeglądarkach.

AVG migrates my mozilla thunderbird from version 60.5.3 to 78.4.3 and I do not know how to avoid that. Version 60.5.3 is not compatible to 78.4.3 and I would have to start my thunderbird from new and would loose all my data (adresses, emails etc.). So I install version 60.5.3 from my downloads and all works fine again till AVG does it again. So either how can I tell AVG to leave my thunderbird in peace or how kann I migrate my data from 60.5.3 to 78.4.3 wich would of course be the better solution.

Is this a Firefox or Win 10 issue? I am administrator and did not disable this feature. Dashboard no longer has options for downloads. Flags, "your browser is being managed by your organisation". When did this happen? Again is this a Firefox or Win 10 issue?

I sometimes receive notification that Fx can't update automatically and I need to download the update. Twice now, the update has deleted my profile on drive D, and replacing it with a new one on the default C: drive. Settings, options, addons all GONE! I finally had to restore my entire system from a backup. What's going on and how can I prevent it happening again?

Hi,

              I have problem with mi web browser (Mozilla). I start PC and browser before 10 minutes and i figured that deleted all my history, bookmarks, all remembered logins (names, passwords), and just everything. It looks like I have installed a brand new web browser. I think it will be some new update or something like that.

Thank you for your help.
