Hi,

I looking to get Firefox to open up a PDF in the browser WITHOUT downloading the file. The reason for this is because I want to bookmark the PDF allowing access to an up-to-date version of a document.

I have selected the option to ask where to the save file in the settings. I have also set the application settings for PDF to 'always ask'. So, when I open the link, I get a window prompt asking me to select 1 of 3 options: view in Firefox, view in selected application, or save. I select view in Firefox and it still downloads and opens the file.

I definitely know Firefox used to open up PDFs AS links because I have some bookmarked. Any suggestions on why this is and how to fix would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I've been seeing suspicious .htm files appear in "downloads" when I hadn't requested any downloads. When I try to open the file, it always appears blank. Once I rebooted without deleting the file, and my system acted like it had a virus. I rebooted in Safe Mode and reverted to a restore point, then everything was fine. But I'm still seeing those suspicious files appearing, at least once per day. How do I stop them?

I use to click on PDF files and they would open and not download to my download folder. Well now every time i click on a PDF file it downloads it. I have tried every option in settings/general/apps and they still download in a folder. So I thought I would try MS edge and it does the same thing. Is it not the browser and was it in a MS update? It has never done this before. I don't want all these PDF files downloaded!

Will it be OK to upgrade my Firefox browser from Rel 72 to latest Rel 100 in one step ? OS is Mac OS X Monterrey 12.3..1 Or should I do 1 or more intermediate upgrades to be safe ?

FWIW, I've had enough problems upgrading from OSx Mojave to Monterrey. I am leery of the huge jump from FF 72 to 100.

All advice most welcome.

I am currently encountering a deeply frustrating issue with Firefox. I develop video games; I am attempting to download a zip file from Steam Workshop containing a player-created mod. I have this file on my other computer--it is not malicious. It contains nothing more than XML files and a jpg. Every time I attempt to download this file using Firefox, Firefox blocks the download as a potential security risk. I then click the download manager and tell it to download anyway; Firefox then pretends to complete the download, but in actuality the file remains at 0 bytes and a "part" file is created containing what I can only assume is the actual data.

Its not really a migration question but can be helpful to those who wish to mange their stuff without the use of other people's computers(the cloud).

I would like to turn all my addons into a text or html file of links or names. Why? The addons are going wonky again a few folders seem to be walmare but not reporting to be malware, its a huge pita to , manually write down each one. Basically, I need to nuke my install and reinstall it all fresh then reinstall all my addons. This is no easy feat when you use 20+ addons. And yes this seems to happen regularly after a couple of years.

Another question, If I sync'd just the addons would it let give me the addons fresh from the file repository without anything extra folders/files or will it just save my current addon folder corrupt files and all?

Also if I just synced addons it won't mess with my bookmarks or settings, will it?

PLEASE help me find a way around this 'so called' improvement of auto downloading any attachment or file to my Downloads folder without any choice from me. I have checked the 'always ask' in General settings - this functionality DOES NOT WORK - IT IS A waste of time. When prompt asks what you want to do, it auto downloads IN THE BACKGROUND even if you say open and do NOT check save option. This is a MAJOR frustration, makes extra work for me to have to remember to go back to Downloads to delete all these files that just pile up, where I separately saved-off the file as usual to my other, separate intended directory. We should have the right to make that decision on whether or not we want to save it to our computers and take up space. PLEASE REVERSE THAT FUNCTIONALITY TO WHAT IS WAS BEFORE. THANK YOU>
