How can I disable the annoying function of automatic download of attachments every time I access one even though I used to be able to just open them or decide to download. Tired of deleting every blasted file into recycle when I don't want this. It doesn't matter if I select "ask where to download" box is checked.

i had a big problem with windows 10 action center (it won't open at all) only one solution was creating new Microsoft profile and move all files from one to another (including downloads documents desktop and whole appdata folder with firefox inside included)

and theoretically all works fine. I have my firefox account, history, tabs, favorites, theme and plugins, but they have blank icons and doesn't work.

is there any way to automatically redownload and reinstall plugins?

I would like to add that I have 3 browsers (profiles) and different plugins in each.

  • The attached image shows Firefox (on the right) not displaying Helvetica correctly. It appears jagged and not pleasant to look at. The browser on the left is Edge and all Chromium based web browsers seem to render it as it should.
  • I've tried to look into (about:preferences#general) and the option that says (Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above) is ticked.
  • I've also tried reinstalling the browser, clearing the website cache and also, removing my profile from it. None of these seemed to fix the issue.
  • It's been persistent for quite some time now, however I didn't really find any articles regarding this issue.
  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

Is there a way to remove the "delete" option when right clicking on items in the download history? It's unfortunately right above 'remove from history' and easy to mis-click. It has no confirmation and permanently deletes the file(s) without sending to the recycle bin which is quite annoying - especially as I'm not sure why you'd want to use this menu to delete something you just downloaded.

Thanks

My OS is Pop! OS. Using 'Tidal' as a web based music streaming service and I play vids on YouTube. Every time a new song or video starts, or when I skip, rewind or do anything like that, it auto resets the volume level output in my sound settings to about 75 to 80 % of the max possible level. So basically, I have to adjust each and every new song by hand, it is infuriating. I block facebooknet in Umatrix and firebaseinstallation googleapis as well as google tag manager but nothing else. That's on Tidal, similarly I do not block essential cookies on YouTube, so I don't think that is the problem. I have a hunch that the answer is somewhere in about:config. If this is intentional, then I'm giving up hope. Thank you.

I recently had to restore my computer. Doing that I have to get the new firefox which I now have version 102. Updates disabled instantly. I was on version 88. On version 88 this feature was not on it and version 102 now has this feature and I do not like it.

The feature I am talking about is if you open the downloads panel and view the downloads list and right click on one of the downloaded files in list there is now an option to Delete. I accidentlly hit this and thought it was just deleting it from downloads panel. Nope it deletes it from computer permanently, not even to recycle bin. Click Delete its gone for good until download it again.

And this delete option is right above the option remove from history, which I use a lot.

So I want to know how to disable this delete option? Thanks

Hello i've been having some problems on the latest software of yours i'm most of the time watching livestreams but from update v.100 of your software it became weird tab suspends after some in activity which is a problem for me

i found a solution through ABOUT:CONFIG and disabled these 3 for videos 1 - media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled 2 - media.resume-bkgnd-video-on-tabhover 3 - browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory

for videos and live streams it was good it didn't suspend but my problem now since update v.102 is that video plays but the CHAT stops and doesn't reload until i reopen firefox to the front of my programs

although it is runnning in the background and NOT MINIMIZED

even when the live stream has some lags and re-buffer it doesn't rebuffer or refresh the page to reconnect to the live stream until i force my firefox in front of my programs or games and again it was not minimized

if there is an option in the about:config to change this please tell me i'm already losing my mind as i missed one of my friends live stream because of that suspension

thank in advance

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???

When I click the reload button or press CRTL+R, I expect firefox to return to the top of the current page and reload the current page.

But lately (a few months now) firefox does not return to the top of the page, it stays at the position that I'm currently viewing and reloads.

I tried starting firefox in safe mode by holding the shift key, and it still shows the same problem. I even tested this on another computer (not mine) with the same result.

If this is a new feature of firefox, can I turn it off?

Hi,

I am testing v102esr of Firefox for a rollout in September.

One of this issues I have come across is the extremely high number of processes started when opening Firefox.

We have our own website run via Windows Server using IIS. The home page has no remote content - it's all local so I don't believe any remote content is being opened. There is only one tab open.

For each new tab I open I get at least one additional process. So with 10 tabs opened I ended up with 24 processes.

In FF91esr this was 3-5 processes. I also noticed under performance settings I can no longer specify the number of processes.

Is there any way to reduce this number to something more sane, like 3-5?

Also, why is there a Console Window Host running under Firefox?

Is the Node.js also new? I don't recall seeing it before

thanks

I used to be able to move my tabs around in Firefox, but now they've become "fixed" in position when I open them. I verified in the Help Files that one can "Change the order of tabs To move a tab to a different position on the tab strip, just drag it there using your mouse", but now I can't seem to do that. What do I need to do to restore ability to move the tabs around? Using Windows 10, , and recently in the last week Firefox updated itself while the laptop was "sleep"ing to Firefox Version 102.0.1 (64-bit). Thank you. ~ SR

I tried to access my Amazon Music account with Firefox v102. I received a message from Amazon that says "Update Firefox - We have upgraded and this browser version is no longer supported. Please update your browser or download our desktop player." when I try to access. I've deleted all cookies and history. I've tried with no add-ons (safe mode). Nothing seems to help. I'm running Windows 10 (64bit) build 19044 on a Thinkpad with 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD.

Amazon music works fine with any chromium browser. Is this another big-tech effort to clear out their competitors? I'm not going to download any application from these big-tech overloards!

It does not generate a crash report.

I am using the latest Firefox version 102.0 and I have igHome set as my home page. Yesterday the Google Calendar Gadget would no longer display the calendar but would display this message:

Firefox Can’t Open This Page To protect your security, accountsgooglecom will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window.

If I click on the “Open Site in New Window” button it does open the calendar. (See attached screenshot.) I have tried login out and back into igHome and my Google account but it doesn’t fix the issue. This is happening on both my laptop and desktop computers running Windows 10 Home. All Windows updates are up to date. I opened Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode and the calendar still does not show. When I use the Google Chrome browser with the same igHome home page the Calendar works fine. Is this something Firefox can fix, or do I need to contact Google?
