Automatically open downloaded csv files with Excel

I have for many years tried to have excel automatically open downloaded .csv files as I do this every day many times. Until today I have not been able to understand why, despite having asked for Firefox to automatically open .csv files with Excel, and therefore finding "Microsoft Excel Comma Separated Values File" associated to "Use Excel (Default)" in the application association list in the General settings, Firefox continues to ask what to do with the .csv file type when downloading.

What I have discovered is that when using a search for associations in the General tab, csv gives no results! However searching for cel does for some reason list the "Microsoft Excel Comma Separated Values File".

It seems to me that the file type three letter code for the Microsoft excel csv file is wrongly stated in the association list. Is my assumption right? If so how can I correct this please?

For information I have had this problem on more than one computer! I have just set this up on a brand new laptop when discovering this.

Images attached... Thank you.

I have an iMac that is a decade old. Running macOS High Sierra version 10.13.6 That is as updated as I can get on this processor.

I had a normal "there is a newer version of Firefox available" update alert, so relaunched Firefox to update. So on Monday 4th April NZ time i got the update. As usual I got the message [in a dialogue box]: Close Firefox. A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time.

So far, normal. I closed Firefox, then relaunched. Same message. Did a logoff on my computer - same thing Did a full shutdown, login - same message. I got a bit radical - I dumped Firefox, deleted Trash. New installation (version 99.0.1) Same message;Close "Firefox. A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time."

Currently using (newly installed) Edge for Mac, until this problem can be sorted; I hope it is brief, I have used Firefox for most of the years I have had a computer.

Installed flatpak and repositories but when I try to use flatpak to install firefox I get "No remote refs found similar to ‘firefox’".

I have tried following a few other ways to get it installed, such as using sudo and using sudo su but that has not worked at all.

I followed to flatpak quick setup on Chromebook guide that is linked in the above help article and created the nested containers in crosh as well.

below is what happens if I go to flathub and copy-paste their recommended command to install firefox.

Hello. Have only 1 version open, yet get error msg can't open more than 1.

Macbook Pro Monterrey 12.3.1 updated today. When restarted after update, got notice that I now had newest version of Firefox.

Have gone through Apps folder, Trash, searched Finder, task bar, every place. Deleted Firefox and downloaded again. Still get that error msg, even though there is only 1 on my machine.

Desperate, have to file taxes tonight. Don't want to resort to Chrome and have my privacy violated.

Please help.

Thanks so much,

Lynne

When newest FF version opens, it cannot see any of the data that is in each of my three older profiles. I've switched to each one and each one appears empty with the new version. Is there some new step to take in this version when switching profiles? How to bring an older version of Firefox and older profiles from Backup to replace what's now unworkable... and regain my important data? Thank you for your timely, much needed help.

Addon Settings, Preferences, and Data Erased and Syncing Disabled After Updating to 99.0.1

Hello,

So my Firefox literally just updated to 99.0.1 and once it re-opened all of my immediate interface preferences were cleared/messed up (Addon Placement, User CSS, Toolbar, etc.) and upon further inspection my various preferences, data, and settings in my individual addons appeared to be erased or missing as well. (OneTab links, Sidebery configuration, etc.).

Syncing also appears to be disabled, as while my account is logged in I get no response whenever I hit the "Turn On Sync" button.

My next go-to move would be to refresh the browser and turn sync on to pull everything back. But while I can re-do most of the interface preferences and such, I had a great deal of links saved in OneTab for various projects, browsing etc. so I am really worried about whether I'd lose that data permanently if it isn't gone already so I'm not sure what to do.

Any help would be most appreciated, thanks!

I realize that you all don't support the older version. Yet it's also the case that Apple won't update this El Capitan on my 2008 model (terrible, a crying shame, I know).

I've also tried to install your Extended Support Release. Will that work? I'm an independent research scholar, not currently associated with either Oxford or Stanford.

So I really need to have your Firefox back — I had it until this morning, when I needed to trash it (b/c of a bug), and then re-install. Yet I've not been able to re-install so far.

Hence, I'm seeking your help!

Thank you, Davy
