New "Feature" Interferes with Productivity

I apparently just received a new version of Firefox browser. Now, when it downloads a file for me, it no longer asks me whether to download it or open it (and with what application); it just downloads it, and shows me a list of my most recently downloaded files. I can then click on one to open it. I honestly am not sure if this is an improvement or not, but I can work with it. HOWEVER, unlike the previous versions of Firefox, when I open the file and close it (without modifying it), it adds it to my jumplist for the application that was used to open it (e.g., Excel). This is NOT good. My jumplists have little enough space available as it is, and when you add these to my jumplists, it pushes other, far more useful items off, and it is REALLY annoying. Who thought this was a good idea? This to me causes significant interference in my productivity, and therefore its usefulness. If you insist on keeping this "feature," can you please add some setting that I can then reset so that it does NOT do it for me?

Thanks, Rick

HI! I'm using Firefox 98 on Linux Ubuntu 20.04. after the last update I found several settings changed and I had to reset them, but there is one setting I can't manage. In the download preferences I set all the Microsoft Excel entries to "Always ask", but every time that I try to see an Excel file (no download, just open with ...), this is automatically downloaded. I definitively don't want to download it. How can I change this behavior? P.S.: I realized right now that there is the same problem with .docx files and I don't know how many others file types.

It seems after latest update the download management is broken.

I used to be able to download a jpeg or image and it would automatically download it to a pic folder I have set up. And if I download a pdf or some other file type it would download it to my dedicated Firefox download folder.

Now No matter what I do it treats all the file types the same as far as where they go when downloaded and it will not remember my last folder for that file type.

I know there is a section in the settings to tell FF what to do with each file type, but FF no longer will automatically download jpegs for example to the pics folder I set up, FF always just puts the jpegs in my FF download folder for all other file types.

It's been the same way for a long time and it worked fine, no it seems with last update functionality has been broken compared to how it used to be.

Is there any way to go back to previous behavior? Just like many FF updates lately, it seems to break things and make things more difficult than they used to be.

Until the recent update to v98, if/when I downloaded a kdbx file (from Google Drive, if that matters) - there was an association to Keypass to immediately open the file using Keypass. Since the update, this no longer happens - now, I can either select to automatically download the file ..or prompt where I want to download the file.

I'm unable to make additions to the Applications file types, and the only documented means of making that addition also does not happen for .kdbx files. I haven't tried other file types...

Oddly, my .nzb association was maintained, but the functionality now downloads the .nzb files to my specified download location rather than to temp files so I didn't have to bother with cleaning up.

Recently (probably after an update) Firefox starts showing my list of downloads automatically and unwanted after each download. So I want to download a few MP3's from a website. I click on one, select the download option, and when it is done downloading a drop down display comes down from the Menu bar showing my last downloads. Obviously, as I download more, this list gets longer. I know I can make the list disappear by clicking anywhere on the screen, but it is an extra click to get rid of a feature I don't want. How do I turn that off?

Firefox 98 just upgraded my installation and as usual Mozilla's made changes that screw up how I use it.

The download improvements they made specifically. I used to be able to have Firefox view a PDF so I could peruse it and decide if I want to keep it and if I did I just hit the download button in the viewer. Now the "improvements" will only either let me set it so it either downloads right away or if I change it to view in Firefox it won't let me download it via the viewer DL button. It acts like it's gonna download by opening the save window but then nothing happens when I hit the save button.

Can Mozilla please fix this? I don't want to save every PDF I want to see if I want to keep. I want to be able to view it in Firefox again and THEN download it if I want it.

Is there a way to turn this off? It's pretty annoying.

I see the thread was closed without a solutuion. The CIRCUMVENTION being 'fiddling' about with 'config'. Just to re-state.... Since Firefox 98, PDF files that are OPENED within Firefox are also automatically (and INCORRECTLY) downloaded. If the PDF file is subsequently requested to be downloaded (using the 'button' within the PDF display/window), Firefox will either: Prompt stating that the file already exists; or (if the user picks his/her own filename) a 2nd copy of the file will be downloaded. Sorry to be direct but THIS IS A BUG THAT NEEDS FIXING.
