After today's update to version 98 Firefox keeps saving files to the Downloads folder when I don't want it to, I just want to open them, but not keep them, with this new behaviour the Downloads folder keeps filing up with useless clutter.

For example, before the update, when I downloaded a .zip file, a pop-up would show up asking if I wanted to save the file or open it with an application. If I chose to save it it would be saved to the Downloads folder, and if I chose to open it nothing would be saved to the Downloads folder.

After the update, when I download a .zip file, Firefox always saves the file to the Downloads folder, even if I choose to open it.

Can you please tell me if there is a way to make Firefox behave like in the previous version?

I know I am not the first person to complain about this. The spacing/padding between menu items, in particular the Bookmark menu is just ridiculously large. It got even bigger in 92.0!

I rely on Bookmarks heavily and use hundreds. I guess this was done for touch screens? The main interface is still currently the mouse for computers.

I see the only current fix is a using a stylesheet and it seems a bit involved. I have to give it a try. I am pleading with the designers, please give us the option to use compact padding once again. I am not sure why this is being forced on us. I really like Firefox, please don't make me look for another option. Thanks!

Hi

to ALL Firefox admins and programmers.....

I think Im speaking for most people when I say this......

PUT THE DAMN TABS !!!!!BELOW!!!! the address bar already!!

People have been begging you to do this for ******* years!!!

Stop being such a**holes and make it like this BY DEFAULT FOREVER! And add a simple option in the setting that always allows the user to put the tabs above or below....but I know most people want this always BELOW!!!

Fix this issue PLEASE it pisses soooo many people off having the tabs above the address bar. ...Also when I double click on the empty space beside the tabs it just shrink the open window.....change this so double clicking on the empty area OPENS A NEW TAB...

Signed a VERY pissed off user!

Hello Support, I notice today when I updated Thunderbird program to new version 78.0.1 it started acting strangely, slowing down, not retrieving emails for specified folders, all folders change color to light gray, filters that were created are not responding I surely don't want go back and create them all over again. It has crashed on me several times so far, emails going straight to inbox when it works and not to their folders. Again, very, very slow... I'm using Lenova Computer with windows 10.

Thanks for your time,

I would like to set the tabs to display below the address bar in Firefox 89 64bit. I believe the setting is in about:config but I can't find it. Firefox does this every so often and I wish they would just have a button to say tabs on top, or tabs below address bar.

I have been using FVD Speed dial for several years. A couple weeks ago, I upgraded my EverHelper/Nimbus web account to paid so that I could sync and keep all my bookmarks since I lost them when my laptop crashed two weeks ago.

Today, I get a message from Firefox that FVD Speedial has been permanently disabled. I need my Speed dials back, and I need refund from somebody if I can't use the add-on anymore. It would be nice if Firefox would notify users ahead of time before unceremoniously blocking something as critical as this. I need to be able to access my speed dials so I can at least import them to some other app/add-on if necessary. I'd also like to know how to contact Nimbus if I need a refund.

The latest version has been loaded onto my PC. The list of bookmarks, in the drop down menu, has increased in the spacing between the lines. Now my bookmarks list goes off the bottom of the screen, whereas before my bookmarks were all visible. Is there a simple way of reducing the gap between the lines, the font size is OK.

I've been using Thunderbird for years, but today when I started it, I got a predominantly blank screen. I finally uninstalled it, downloaded the latest version, and reinstalled it. I still get a more-or-less blank screen as shown.

If I click File > Get new messages for... it shows the accounts I have set up with Thunderbird, but clicking on "All accounts" or any individual account does nothing.

I had my Profile and my emails stored in folders other than the default ones, so I thought clicking on Tools > Options or Tools > Account settings would allow me to specify those folders, but once again nothing happens when I click the links.

Yet I get popups saying that I've received new mail, but it doesn't show up.

I've tried running Thunderbird in Safe Mode but this doesn't help.

What's wrong and how can I fix it?
