Hello Mozilla Support!

I just installed Firefox 98.0 this morning. I was very surprised to discover that I can no longer view an attachment in Firefox or open an attachment without also downloading it.

If you can, please ask the developers to reinstate the Download Attachment options to "Open with Firefox" and "Open with [select the program]" without automatically downloading every attachment.

Thank you!

In the new version, the Downloads panel automatically opens whenever I save/download a file.

The problem... it STAYS open.

How can I turn it off? I already know where and how to check on my downloaded files. I do not need to see the downloads panel pop up every time I save a file. And I definitely do not need or want it to stay open, causing yet another need for a mouse click to make it go away.

I've just suddenly had this problem starting today: downloading files through the browser is now automatically sending them to my computer's Downloads folder, even though I have my download settings set to 'Always ask you where to save files'. I double-checked to see if my settings had been reset by the update (they had not), and I even unselected and reselected the option to see if that helped anything (it didn't).

Greetings- I was using my browser (single window, three open tabs) and I checked task manager - Firefox has several concurrent processes running and I don't understand. I understand the sandbox and one process having several child processes, but this I believe is suspect.

I also noticed that in the "Security at a glance" window in Win11, my icons have changed - there's a weird white box on most of the security icons. I'm thinking I may be under some sort of virus/trojan, etc., yet I've ran antivirus even in prior to boot and got nothing

I just had a Firefox update today and now when I save a pic or save a video it does a new really annoying drop-down notification at the top from the download icon area which stays there until I manually remove it. In the past I only saw an activity up there when I downloaded programs to my downloads folder, but not when I simply saved an image or video to my other locations. I do not want this stupid dropdown notification appearing, and it's getting bigger and bigger the more pics I save, how do I turn it off? It's ridiculous. I save videos from twitter and images like memes all the time and never have this happen, it just saves it and there is nothing more going on to worry about (which is what I want), it's only started today after the update so it's a new feature. I looked in about:config but I could not work out which setting it is so didn't touch anything. Thanks for your help.

I have read on different sites that other people over the years have had issues with Firefox causing router/modem problems. One case was related to Amazon, another case to Home Depot, but in my case it is caused on the initial start of Firefox after a boot. Once the router/modem is reset, we can restart Firefox multiple times each day and it never causes a problem again. In our case, it is caused by the home page (aolmail.com). I have read all the solutions that I have found and the only thing that appears to work for us is to start Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode. Then we are fine with no further modem/router hang ups. Any suggestions as to what to try to resolve this issue. It's on my Wife's computer and if she ain't happy, no one else is. Thanks.

With the new version (98.0), a new behavior emerges. I do many image downloads individually (save image as), and now, when I download an image, the download panel comes up, a new feature, but it is an annoying behavior. I prefer the old way: when I want to open the downloads panel I click on the download icon on the menubar. This page apparently describes this new behavior: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/manage-downloads-preferences-using-downloads-menu How do I prevent the downloads panel from automatically opening when I don't want it to open? Unfortunately it's tough to get a picture of this. I tried for a movie on my phone so maybe you can see what it looks like, though right now it looks like it won't upload.

Hello,

I've set up Firefox to ask before updating, so I was taken aback by the fact that today, an update was automatically installed without Firefox asking me... (I was updated from 97.x to 98.0)

It is especially frustrating, as the mandatory "Restart" screen is broken when using several profiles, at least under Debian.

Let me know if you need more information.

Best regards,

Adonis

Ive tried disabling every extension, Ive tried the about:config solution I found on this page, setting it to "false" and I havent been able to find anything in tools or settings.. but nothing disables it and its getting annoying. Ive had Firefox for years and this has never happened before.

Lately when I download an image, from Google expanded images on the right side for example, the download drops down a menu. If I have made multiple downloads the list gets longer and now blocks the area of the page I am working on. I don't need this downloads drop down menu and cannot find a way to stop it. I would prefer if it didn't display unless I clicked on it.

I have searched the net but can't find any answers. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Tom.

Hello,

Since last Firefox update, the download window popup is displayed everytime I download something (red box in the screenshot).

I tried looking in the settings but there is only two lines for where to download or to ask me at each download.

In the personnalization menu there is only the option to display or not the download icon (blue box in the screenshot), and I want the icon to always be seen like I used to.

Tried to look into about:config but I don't know which setting to set on true/false.

I would appreciate some help to not have the red box popup appear when I download. Thank you.
