Hi! Since a few months I can't open the opening folder after downloading a file.

Normally, I download a file, then click on the button "open containing folder" on the right of the download file. the default file manager opens up then at the level just above the file downloaded. But, a few months ago, this stopped working: Clicking on "open containing folder" launches the file manager but directly at the level of the file: And this makes the file manager launches the file by the way with the default program.

Settings: Arch Linux, Firefox 79

Hi there,

I recently upgraded to a MacBook Pro 16, and installed the Firefox browser as usual. Every time I launch Firefox now, I must "Sign in to sync," and input my Firefox Account password (not my Master Password) in order to access my homepage, saved logins, etc. This was not the case with my older MacBook Pro, where I was automatically signed in on launching the browser.

What do you recommend?

Thanks in advance.

This started when Firefox updated to 79. Now, after I open Gmail, a minute or so later, usually after reading or replying to an email, Gmail disconnects from the internet connection. I get a message at the top of the screen,

When I exit Gmail. it asks if I am sure I want to leave the page. This indicates to me that there is an action pending in Firefox or Gmail. When I restart Gmail, the messages that I deleted are still available, marked as read. These may be the pending actions that generated the "Are you sure" message. Once Gmail exits, nothing else works in Firefox, The only way I can continue is to close and restart Firefox. I do not have the problem in other browsers.

Duh, it's probably a simple procedure.

I tried setting webpage through the method I knew, i.e Go to Menu->Preferences->Home and set the Homepage and new windows settings to the URL you want.

But the bug is that, when I close Firefox and then open it fresh, it starts a blank page and does not load my required homepage. I have to click the home button.

When I already have Ff window open and I start a new window then it loads up my home page but, that redundant, since I could have opened the page I want in the first place.

Is there a solution to this?

Please help. Thank You.

Мной в очередной раз обнаружена замена главной страницы и поискового сервиса по умолчанию, сделанная без предварительного уведомления и запроса согласия на эти изменения. Изменения произошли после обновления браузера. Я возмущен и намерен не стесняться в выражениях своего возмущения. За каким хреном собачьим в свою пользу и какой кретин додумался мне навязывать в качестве главного иной поисковый сервис и иную главную страницу, чем те, которые были назначены мной и использовались до автоматического обновления браузера? Каким образом и почему вместо сделанного мной выбора в качестве поиска по умолчанию и в качестве домашней страницы установлен продукт Yandex LLC, который в той реализации, в какой он мне поставлен, по моему субъективному мнению является грязной помойкой новостей, нерелевантных моим интересам, без спроса шпионящим ресурсом, пропагандонским сервисом, трусливо замалчивающим главные с моей точки зрения события, но зато напичканный баннерами с третьесортной рекламой и такого же сорта новостями, заодно с кучей активных ссылок на bloatware, устанавливающихся точно таким же образом, как и этот поисковый по недоразумению сервис и эта ненужная мне домашняя страница браузера по умолчанию? Меня очень интересует, кто с больной головы на здоровую решил, что это можно делать, не спрашивая меня и моего разрешения, исходя даже из самых лучших побуждений облегчить мне задачу выбора поставщика информационных услуг? Кто, каким образом и на каком основании осуществил эту замену настроек? Повторю описание ситуации особо одаренным альтернативно. Устанавливая браузер, я выбрал язык английский и поисковый сервис Google. И он тоже не идеален, но это мой выбор. Я разберусь, чем мне пользоваться - не разработчики сервиса и ПО, не поставщики сервиса должны в этом разбираться и тем более что-то предпринимать слабо приспособленными для этого органами деятельности и даже не господь Б-г, а я. Спрашивается: на основании чего и каким образом поставка обновления браузера оказывается устроенной таким интересным способом, что я, однажды прекрасным утром открывая свой браузер, снова обнаруживаю абсолютно не устраивающие меня предварительные настройки обновленного программного продукта, которые не делал ни я, ни кто либо вместо меня со стороны пользовательского интерфейса? Это что - моль от соседей залетела и занесла? Это тараканы с помойки приползли и притащили инфекцию? Если в доме подметено, то почему бы однажды не отказать себе в привычке заходить, не переобувась в чистое. Тем более - в чужом доме. Почему бы однажды не перестать влезать без спросу, как это бывает в обыкновении определенной категории людей, и взять за хорошее правило ничего не менять в моих настройках приобретенной мной системы, включая настройки приложения, установленные мной, до получения такой просьбы и делать только по получении согласия на действия, после предварительного полного информирования о результатах тех действий, которые будут произведены? Как эта простота вмешательства стала возможной и как оградить себя от девиантного поведения? И третий раз. Кто, каким образом и на основании чего бесцеремонно навязывает мне то, что я не делал и не собирался делать? И, наконец, основной вопрос - как эти девиации исключить в дальнейшем, не затрачивая личное время на перенастройки того что уже один раз настроено мной по моему выбору, не тратя время на скандальные публикации, и не прибегая к отказу от Firefox?

Hi, My Firefox and Thundebird internet download / upload speed is slow. I I try with Chrome download speed, it is 7-10Mb up and down. If do same with Firefox, then it is different. Many times it is 0,2Mb, but some time also 5-6Mb Usually upload are faster and it is 5Mb. (Use Chrome, then always faster) It seems to me as random, because many times speed OK and many times not OK. If compare test result with Chrome, then always slow.

I use ESET virus control and try to test it without virus control, but same result.

Also in Thundebird HTML load are slow. Small picture in e-mail can reach 30 sec.

I try to change different things in options, but no result.

Can anyone help me with this?

Since the update 79.0, I'm having problems with downloads not starting, if they are directed to a different server via the download button. Before, the extra window would briefly open and close and then the download dialogue would pop up as to where to save the file. This is no longer happening, the window briefly pops open, but it doesnt let me save the file anymore. Instead i found out, that its creating a bunch of .part files in the Appdata/Temp folder for each download that didnt start that way. What still works is rightclick-> save as, however, that's not very comfortable. Any idea as to what change may have caused this behaviour and how I can fix it?

salve, Sono uno sviluppatore web. Ho notato che dopo gli ultimi aggiornamenti Firefox si è allineato alla linea di Chrome e Opera, creando un problema non da poco. Il problema è che non rispetta le impostazioni header per NON memorizzare la pagina in cache. Più in particolare le pagine da me create impostano il Cache-Control a "private,no-cache, no-store, must-revalidate,max-age=0" ed in più imposto l'header PHP (tramite .htaccess) per non memorizzare i file tipo php, js,css,html. Aggiornando la pagina tramite l'apposito comando "Ricarica" il browser mantiene in memoria i file obsoleti (js e css) non aggiornando la cache come richiesto. L'unico modo per aggiornare i file è "eliminare la cronologia del browser". La stessa cosa accade ricaricando gli iframe.

In prevalenza facciamo delle applicazioni WEB per cui è necessario che i file siano sempre aggiornati in base alle ultime modifiche, da cui la necessità di NON memorizzare in cache. Questa pecca ci ha spinto a SCONSIGLIARE ai nostri Clienti l'utilizzo di Chrome e Opera in favore di Firefox. Spero prendiate in esame il problema. Attendo un Vostro riscontro.

Tried it with and without these running and FF fails to save my tabs, regardless of shutting down the browser or the OS. This does not occur on Win10 or my Linux distros. I've been trawling forums and help pages and the Interweb casually for weeks now, without success, but getting quite frustrated now; so posting this as a last resort.
