Hello, in last few days I notice that when you try to save web page that has title ending with .com or anything like that saved file has .com extension instead of htm. I often use this option and I'm sure it must be one of the latest updates that started to cause that. Any chance it gonna get fixed and Firefox start adding .htm after .com?

For example try saving page https://www.naturalnews.com/ its title is "Natural Health News and Scientific Discoveries - NaturalNews.com" and saved file has .com extension. I need to fix it everytime and add .htm manually.

I do freelance work for a nonprofit that uses Constant Contact for its bulk fundraising emails. I've been doing this for at least 3 years using Firefox, but suddenly, something weird is happening: in any text block I insert, all the words run together as if I'm not hitting the spacebar. I'm communicating regularly with Constant Contact support, and they've even escalated the issue...but nothing seems to work. (It often looks fine on their end, but not on mine.) Unfortunately this ONLY happens with Firefox; using Edge and Chrome, the words come out fine. CC is still trying to solve the problem, but thought I'd bring it here to see if anyone else has any ideas.

Thanks in advance!

Session Restore is once again greyed-out/unclickable, and I had a huge amount of tabs open. It will take forever to figure out what even a fraction of them were, is it possible to try to restore them some other way.

Any way to try to restore or at least get a list of what my suddenly unrestorable tabs were? I mean, aside from looking through every single item in my entire history and then trying to figure out whether I had already finished that project or not?

(I'll get old and die before I complete that.)

I had many many tabs open, in many many windows, and I discovered long ago (this is not necessarily a good thing:) that if you have the internet on your device shut off while you start firefox up, and while you session restore, though all the urls and the tabs and the windows reappear, none of the are actually loaded, they are just sitting there, and you need to reload each page/tab before the computer seems to use any ram (if that's the word) to run the page. This unfortunately allows a distractable procrastinator like me to accumulate literally thousands of unfinished tabs, which I was of course going through one by one and closing, but I had tons and tons of them open still.

When session restore suddenly no longer is an option, (it is greyed out, and not for the first time,) are there any other options?

I hear mumblings from the web that imply there may be.

such as this?

https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html?fbclid=IwAR172UESrZ1OHwugYV0KB-4lP0etZG7IyIx1IUCNn3kFLTWgN6EuL8RWLOc

anything else? or do I have to just give up and start over? (and ON that note, how can I avoid this in the future, there must be some way in lieu of me actually finishing one thing before starting 100 more,) to avoid this?

p.s. getting them back, somehow, would be what I desire, first.

I know the first page has no redirect at webhost so I don't know why this happens. Same problem in Chrome and Edge. Malware is unlikely as Plusnet have thousands if not millions of customers.

I've downloaded a couple of add-ons this week that did not do what they claim to do, so I wanted to leave reviews so other users won't waste their time. Except when i got to do so, i am surprised to see that therte is no clear way to write a review for an add-on. I am logged into the add-ons page, i can view the previous reviews for the add-on, but nowhere does it inticate how I can leave a review. Google led me to the Mozilla add-ons wiki which states "You can complete most of the review using the reviewer tools at addons.mozilla.org" except there is no indication to where one can locate these "reviewer tools." Seems a bit funny to me that Mozilla would choose to hide the functionality and make it so difficult to use.

Any help is appreciated.

Since earlier this week my Firefox browser has been turning .jar files from GitLab into .jar.zip files, which prevents them from being used properly until renamed. Attempting to download the same files on Edge or Chrome works correctly, and attempting to download any jar files from other websites (even GitHub) also works correctly. It seems that GitLab is the only website that is affected by this.

Examples of files being affected (they should be downloaded as normal .jar files): 1. https://gitlab.com/Trafalcraft/antiRedstoneClock/uploads/3b3c84814d76810f826c3803eaca1e66/antiRedstoneClock-1.4.1.jar 2. https://gitlab.com/Aristois/ui-installer/-/jobs/2505715157/artifacts/raw/packager/Aristois-Free.jar 3. https://gitlab.com/Aristois/Installer/-/jobs/2495195255/artifacts/raw/packager/free/Installer-2.0.3.jar

I'm using Firefox developer edition (102.0b3), and already tried using private mode, resetting Firefox, and reinstalling. Since I use GitLab as a main source to upload files, many users have also complained the same problem to me, in which all of the users were running Firefox. After they downloaded with a different browser, it worked for them as well.

Every time I try to sign into my Google account (including related sites like YouTube), I'm rerouted to the Microsoft sign in page for my old university, and can't log in. This only happens on Firefox, if I switch to another browser then there's no problem.

So far I've tried:

  • Deleting all of my history including my cache and cookies.
  • Once I'm at the site I'm rerouted to, going into History, right-clicking on the url, and clicking "Forget this site."

Neither have worked. Any suggestions appreciated!

My installation of 32-bit Firefox 102 had been repeatedly crashing, sometimes for no apparent reason. I decided to download the 64-bit version of Firefox 102, uninstalled the 32-bit version, carried out a standard installed and all this appeared successful. I noticed that I was getting a lot of advertisements and remembered that I had had Ghostery installed as an extension in my 32-bit Firefox. I went to the extensions page, selected Ghostery and asked for it to be added. Shortly after that, I got a message that the installation had been aborted because the extension might be corrupt. I tried again and got the same message. I tried another ad blocker, and got the same message with that one; and tried a third with the same result. What is going on? I haven't changed any settings in Firefox since the standard installation, and the extensions were from the Firefox source, so how can the extensions be corrupt? If it isn't corrupt, why isn't Firefox installing it?

I've been through a rough patch with Firefox the past couple of weeks.

Cutting to the chase: I exported all my bookmarks and imported them in a new profile.

But the icons that used to be there aren't.

Not *end of the world*, but just something I noticed.

(I just about shot myself in the foot) Ok, after using one to open a tab and the icon returned. So is that how they get their icons?

I have used Firefox for years. I am computer literate and do not like the newer approach Firefox has taken to save all downloads to my downloads folder. I have to continually go in and manually delete the files.

For instance, I have a lot of pdf forms that I have to open directly in Acrobat, those files are then duplicated and saved in my downloads. This is causing a mess for me.

This was NOT an improvement in my opinion. Is there a way to stop this???

So i began teaching a UX design course on an institution and we are used to work with google slides to make a presentation. In terms of evaluation, every student need to present the resolution of the challenges we make to assest their performance through the course. I noticed that my students that do not use firefox see their slides on a different way that i see them.

For example: i notice that, when the font placing is right for them, for me it's off (i view the placing as if it is apart from the slide, or maybe i see the font not being well distributed in its text field) The same thing happens with every element they put on each slide: i see them differently. This does not happen when i open the file in other browsers.

I add an image to clarify.

I would like to know if there is a solution for this, because i would not like to correct my students using other browser, honestly.
