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?

Hello,

I recently was having issues opening twitter. I went through the trouble shooting for error messages and it didn't work. To fix it I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox for android. When I logged back in I had lost my collections. Is there any way to get those pages back? I had a lot of trial recipes and stories to read. I've been looking but this question isn't answered anywhere.

Thanks and stay safe!

Apparently the last update lost my contacts. The address books are still there, but there are no contacts in them. They all seem to be empty address books.

Not sure if this part is relevant, but...

While searching the forum for an fix I noticed others had similar problems that were supposedly fixed in update version 78x. I checked my version, it said 68x on the updates page of the options menu. However, when I checked the update history, it said it was version 78x. I unchecked the automatic updates (may have been in safe mode as that was one of recommendations I found) and checked for updates and it said version 68x was available. Thinking this might bring back my contacts since 78x seemed to have borked the address book, I updated it. Didn't help, but now it says it's up to date with version 68x and version 78x doesn't seem to be available. The history shows it updated 68x on Oct 1 after 78x was updated on Sep 15.

I've used Thunderbird for over 10 years and never had a serious problem before. This is very frustrating as I had over 100 contacts, many with a charity that I help.

How can I get my contacts back without re-entering them manually?

Thanks.

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.

My web based email use to have a great function in that you can view all your email images as thumbnails so you could scan down and quickly pick out a treasured photo. Unfortunately, BT have now destroyed this option on their latest update.

Is there a way in Thunderbird that this action can be duplicated?

I do NOT want to go into every individual email, I have over 70,000! Just want a method to quickly skim my photo attachments...
