I get an error when I try to download a video by right clicking and selecting "save video as". The error reads "the download cannot be saved because an unknown error occurred please try again"

This has started after the firefox 81 update and it effects both a personal and work computer. I have already tried disabling add-ons and extensions as well as resetting the download folder settings via about:config page.

Firefox insists on opening files from local temp dir, discarding URLs

My question is a blend of these two previous questions:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1303566 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1277388

I have a bunch of open tabs which used to simply contain pdf documents, opened in the Firefor pdf viewer, with the file URL in the address bar rather than a local temp dir address. This behaviour however changed with a recent update (I'm on 82.0b5), and now when I reload those old tabs, I get prompted for a download, and a new tab is opened following the download with a local temp dir replacing the URL. As all these files previously opened just fine in the FF preview with the URL present, this is unlikely to be related to whether the server sends files as "application/pdf" or otherwise, as the same files have changed behaviour, and it is unlikely that a bunch of servers changed the way they send files at the same time.

Further, the answer to the second question above proposed to select "Preview in Firefox" to get around this, however this option doesn't seem to exist anymore.

Is this a known behaviour change in FF82? If so, is there a way to get the old behaviour back?

My Firefox account has only one email address. I want to change it. When I access the "Change Primnary Email Address on Firefox Accounts" I'm advised I need to have a secondary email address. I don't have one. The process then says I have to add one. When I go to add an address it directs me to the Firefox Icon in upper right where I'm supposed to get a drop down menu that will do the addition. When I access the icon, I get a SYNC option and nothing else. Would someone be able to help me out please.

In last couple of the most recent versions of both Firefox and Firefox Enterprise, Access files with ACCDB extensions will not open from a link on an html page. Basically, it will show an error in firefox. It can be saved to the local desktop if we set the option to do so, but we would like to be able to open it only. The file is on a network. We've also tried opening the file in several other browsers (chrome, edge, etc.) and get the same results in all of them except IE. That remains the only browser we can open an Access file in with a link. Microsoft Word and Excel files appear to still be opening fine.

I cannot find a way to permanently increase the size of the fonts in the bookmarks toolbar. the fonts are so small I cannot read them. Why has firefox never addressed this issue? There has to be a reasonable way to do this and if not, why not?

And how about being able to change font size throughout the application?

I make use of pinned tabs for things like Outlook online and Microsoft Teams. It would be very helpful to have links from these "applications" opened in a new, distinct, window, so that they don't hide the app on me when I'm switching between virtual desktops.

I'm happy to install an extension for this purpose if that's the best answer.

Thanks!

Bookmarks overwritten by Firefox Sync

A couple months ago, I got my mom to switch from Chrome to Firefox. She ordered a new computer from a computer exchange company recently, so she asked me to sync her browser data from her old computer to her new computer.

I signed her up for a Firefox account, and when turning Sync on, it asked me to set up a second device. Since the new computer hadn't arrived yet, I decided to use Firefox Sync with another computer in the house. I installed Firefox on the device (it had never been installed before on that device) and hooked up her Firefox account. As expected, everything synced perfectly. The page telling me to connect another device still appeared, but I assumed that was because she hadn't connected a phone yet.

When the new computer arrived the next morning, the old computer had already been shut down and sent to the company, and the other computer in the house was still running but didn't have Firefox open to the best of my knowledge. I installed Firefox on it (again, didn't come pre-installed and had never been installed before) and hooked up her Firefox account. This time, everything synced perfectly... except for the bookmarks.

Only about 2-3 dozen of them transferred, along with one folder with a dozen more. (There were quite a few, potentially around 1-2 thousand.) The only bookmarks on the toolbar were the Getting Started page and a blank-titled bookmark leading to a "compose email" page. The rest were nowhere to be found. When I opened up Firefox on the other computer in the house, Firefox Sync had conveniently overwritten all of the bookmarks with what was on the new computer!

Everything else, including the history, passwords, and add-ons, were preserved perfectly. I tried everything on Recover lost or missing Bookmarks and Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer to no avail, since the other computer in the house didn't auto-backup the bookmarks after Sync transferred them. I even gave it a couple of days like the article suggested, and still nothing. There's no chance that the computer exchange company had anything to do with it, since they have a no-touch policy of 30 days in case there's problems with the new computer.

Is there any chance that the bookmarks still exist somewhere? It's not a huge problem, since my mom told me that she's fine with the bookmarks being gone, and she would have ordered the old computer back if they were that important to her. I'm just unsure what might happen to the data in the future, or even what might happen to my own Firefox data, and hope that an answer might be helpful to others with the same problem but greater stakes.

The browser data provided along with this article is that of my mom's new computer, and should be true for the other browsers involved as well -- except for the old computer, which was Windows 7.
