I am using Firefox Browser V81.0 (64-bit) on MacOS Catalina and I'm experiencing issues with downloading files specifically from Google Drive. I can download other files using Firefox, but it doesn't work when using GDrive. I know it's an issue with Firefox because I've tried downloading the GDrive files using Safari and it's fine.

What happens is I'll click download and then there is no prompt that asks me if I'd like to download the file.

I also looked at this thread and followed the troubleshooting measures (including clearing the browser cache and starting Firefox in Safe Mode), but it did not solve the problem: [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1157677]

I've also tried un-installing/re-installing Firefox. And I have my adblocker disabled for Google Drive.

Any suggestions for how to resolve the problem?

Firefox is persistently putting downloads in the wrong location (1-16-21)

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.

Hello,

I just installed Firefox Sync, and now I see that all my previously saved bookmarks and passwords have been deleted. I do see a folder in which these should be, but when I try to import the bookmarks it shows me an error (photo 1). Also trying to restore to previous dates shows errors (same result as photo 1).

So instead of importing them I try to do the long work around of putting them all back in place. However, when I try to bookmark webpages again, they are not shown in the bookmarks at the top of my browser (photo 2) or in the bookmarks when I open the menu (photo 3)

My question: How do I restore my old passwords and bookmarks? And how can I get bookmarks at the top of my screen again?

Thanks.

I recently reinstalled mozilla firefox on my PC and i noticed that in Option>General>Downloads there is no longer the option to disable the "Save File" pop up window whenever u click on a file to download. I searched around, even messed with about:config but i couldn't find a way to disable it. So the question is simple: Is there a way to disable this prompt?

Download Firefox adds another file extension

I got a new computer (Windows 10; my old one still had Windows 7), I have the same Firefox Version 85.0.2 (64 bit), and the same options (transferred with my account) yet firefox behaves differently when downloading. In this case when I download a .dlc file (a text file) firefox ADDS the file extension .txt, in consequence jdownloader2 doesn't open it automatically. Under Windows 7 firefox does no such thing. How can I change this behavior in firefox (under Windows 10 only?)?

Hi. I am on a brand new MacBook Pro with no access to my old one, and am unable to access my old Firefox boomarks. I didn't make a back up of my Firefox bookmarks and no matter what profile I try to recreate on Firefox, can't access them.

Do you know if I have any options for recovering my old bookmarks? Firefox says it automatically creates backups of profiles, but I don't understand how to activate or access these.

I cannot tell anything about my old Firefox profile from loading about:profiles page.

Thank you, Anna

I set this up Firefox up first on about the 14th -- no problem with e-mail. My mail and other shortcuts have disappeared and don't want to re-import from Edge or the older program. I don't want to sync it, just get the e-mail and find time to install a software that doesn't want to install, but has nothing to do with Firefox. I have been trying all afternoon and don't have any recourse but to go back to Windows if I can't get this resolved.

I have an existing problem because this computer was new a year ago and came with a free Office Max 1 year tech service. They remapped both the browser and this desktop and could not get it so I could access my files from both computers and save on this one. We were going thru my daughter's cancer, husband's stroke and my arm surgery and I couldn't come downstairs often. Finally called them one last time and seemed to work, but next day was a mess and I couldn't even get on the internet. I did get that straightened out and moved to Firefox. Worked fine until we had a storm and Microsoft got in on the reset after the snow storm. Now Firefox won't let me have my mail on this computer without syncing -- has always worked fine. Actually if I send a file to myself that is too big, it just went into the sent box and when I could get downstairs I could open it, work on it and send back the same way.

I do have a friend who can help me reset the computer when this covid thing is over and he has time to get here as he is quite busy with Boeing computers and our church computers-- I'm afraid to reset the computer without being sure all my card and WP programs are saved and will work. In the meantime, if I can just get this darn e-mail set up, I'll be satisfied.

I've noticed after an update ( Win) that Firefox will not remove non of the existing maps( installed ver).

But however when I do a update in Win ( still have Win 7) I go to Control panel->Programs->Add/remove programs. And do an removal via win add/removal tool.

But as I assumes that Firefox will create a library in win registery. But my point is if I can manualy delete the exsisting maps( librarys). Or Do I have to make a complete formating of my HDD?

But when I install Firefox at my Pc I have a separate partition at my HDD,to wich I install Firefox. Just in case not to infect or get rid of my existing installed programs. For an ex at my C:/ I only have installed my OS (Win)+sometimes Office.
