When dowloading an AAX type file from Audible, Firefox changes it to MP4 (downloads as AAX with other browsers).

Note, changing the file type after the download fixes the problem. But, is there a way to prevent it from happening in the first place? Also, why changing file type in the first place?

Today using Firefox 93.0 on my Windows 10 home computer I opened the browser to my Audible library on Audible.com and selected a book to download. The browser download window opened with the book file name but the extension wasn't .AAX but had been changed to .MP4. This did not happen when I used Microsoft Edge nor did this happen on my Windows 10 laptop which was still running Firefox 92.0. Once Firefox upgraded to 93.0 on my laptop I now get the same problem as I get on my home computer.

Audible technical support looked into the problem and found that this change wasn't caused by their servers.

I have discovered that if I change the file extension from MP4 to AAX I can load the audible book into iTunes and sync it over to my iPhone which is able to play the file as an audible book. This indicates to me that the actual AAX file was not converted to MP4. For some reason only the file extension was changed.

I wasn't able to find any setting in the Firefox browser that corrected this problem.

Every time I click on a link from any browser page, I get a page that says to try again, like couldn't connect error message to the effect. Once I click on the try again button it loads just fine. Is this a browser issue or have I possibly been hacked and the hacker is getting my info forwarded to him/her causing the browser to not recognize the command, and then once I click try again it goes on like normal?

Every time I shut down my computer, Firefox needs to download all over again when I power up my computer. I need to sign in and start the sync all over again. After I customize my bookmarks on Firefox, these do not remain stable once I power up the computer and open up the Firefox App again. It always seems like it's downloading the app for the first time. Syncing is a mess. Is there any way I can keep this application stable even after I shut off and power up the computer again?

The other day I downloaded SaveFrom.net Helper but then shortly after I deleted it. The program was deleted from the computer except that the green line with the program name shows as an extension on the bar at the top of the Firefox page.

I cannot delete it. If I delete it once it reappears next time I load Firefox. The extension does not show up in add ons and extensions in Tools Firefox.

I have read an earlier reply that suggests delete Firefox and reinstall Firefox and that will get rid of it.

However, I am not anxious to try that as over time I have already extensions ad add ons and other customisation of Firefox, including all my bookmarks and I don't want to lose these and start again.

So here is my question. As the program is deleted and as their extension does not show up in Tools and then adddons, can I assume that the existence of the program name as an extension on one of the title bars at the top of Firefox is just an irritation and that this SaveFrom program cannot in any way add or do anything to my computer?

I can then live with it rather than deleting Firefox and starting again.

I would be so grateful for your help.

Thank you.

I do not have bookmarks in other search engines, it seems the only help it for that type of problems. I read other help articles, I do not have the things that were advise from Application menu. I did not make any changes to this laptop either, I cannot understand why my bookmark had disappeared???!!! What I had was a windows soft reset, which did wipe the bookmarks. Today I had opened a couple of websites, and when I look for the bookmarks I am only shown these 5-6 bookmarks!!!! I had loads as crafts from You tube and others! Such an inconvenience!

I am having trouble getting the auto-complete function to work properly so I can just type the first few letters of a website I visited before.

I found the answer on the web. Here is what it said to do:

1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste URLB and pause while the list is filtered

(3) If the browser.urlbar.autoFill preference is bolded and "modified" or "user set" to false, double-click it to restore the default value of true

I did this and noticed that "true" is already selected. The auto-complete function should be working but its not working. Do I need to discard the browser and re-install it again?

I even tried changing to false, and closing the browser, then opening it up again and changing it back to true but that didn't work.

Regrettably I got locked out of my Sync account due to losing my 2FA and recovery. Giving that to err is human and data losses happen, I had hoped that there would be an alternate method of resolution, even if it means that the account is deleted so that the end user can use their primary e-mail account.

Given that my account login is my e-mail address and my e-mail address is the equivalent of a company holding my name and address I assumed it would be possible to use an official request for data removal.

Unfortunately Mozilla will only remove your e-mail address from mailing lists and not from sync account servers. So, it would appear that once you lose your 2FA, Mozilla can retain your personal details forever, and there's nothing you can do about it. Essentially what I got back after waiting for a month was being removed from any e-mail subscriptions and a 'get stuffed we can't help you, here's a link that we know can't help you'. Pretty bad after waiting a month.

It certainly makes it very secure, I'll say that, but also very weird to have an e-mail address that is unusable for the next few thousand years. Essentially on a blacklist. Having moved to Firefox after Netscape Navigator it's a shame to be locked out or to even be able to delete the account so I can start again. Anyway, my account sync with Edge and Chrome on both my Kubuntu and Windows install work fine so it's not like I don't have a browser that won't sync.

If anyone does have a solution, I'll take it, but after a month of trying various methods I think my e-mail address is now useless for Firefox Sync, and thus Firefox is now useless to me and I'll have to use Edge and Chrome instead.
