Some weeks ago, I remember that opening certain documents after finding them in Firefox could be done by using it as a temporal file (or at least I deduce that because they were stored in a folder called temp somewhere in my computer's storage). I could do it with docx files, however it does not seem to be the case anymore. It just asks where to save it, which, although is fine, is not what I want. Given that it used to be different, I know it's possible to have it that way, so I'd like to ask: how do I customise Firefox so that I can open files as temporally stored instead of just downloading, as it used to be?

As an example, this is an document I'd like to open as a temporal file.

I hope I was clear, and thank in advance to the wonderful Mozilla community

Hi,

brief backstory: When I set up my new desktop, I copied over the nightly profile from my laptop. This however meant that Firefox Sync kept confusing my laptop and my desktop, only ever keeping the most recently synced state from either. This persisted even after I changed the devices names.

Searching on the internet, I found a suggestion to delete `services.sync.client.GUID` from about:config. I did that, and long story short, I cannot open any websites on my desktop anymore. It fails immediately with SEC_ERROR_LIBRARY_FAILURE.

This error persists even after

  • Refreshing Firefox
  • Reinstalling Firefox
  • Creating a new Firefox profile

whenever I log back into Sync. So I tried deleting and recreating my Firefox account to get rid of whatever corrupted data is presumably stuck in the sync data, but even then the error still occurs. It only disappears if I create a new profile and *never sign into sync*, but this is not a long term solution.

Does anyone have an idea how to identify and delete whatever setting is causing firefox to choke?

Hi

I use Firefox developer edition. During the latest update Mozilla removed my most loved feature that asked you what you wanted to do with a file before downloading it. I tried to fix this by going into the settings and changing it to always ask for every file type, but many file types are just missing and I am unable to get them to appear. I looked on my other computers and all file types are present there but not on my desktop for some reason. Is there any way to fix this or to get Firefox to ask before downloading again?

Thanks

(I added an img of what the settings look like)

I have a use-case: I moved tab to a new window for something special. Youtube player, messenger, etc. I moved it to a second monitor.

I want to continue to open new links in the old ('main') window, not in a new one. Everytime I try to detach tab into separate window, it almost instantly get clogged by new links, whilst I really want it to be 'as is' with selected tab (single tab) been visible all the time and not put to background by every new link I click in the external messenger.

How can I move tab into separate window and 'block' this window from been used for new links?

(FF 97, Ubuntu/Cinnamon).

The following message has come up every time I have started Firefox and it is now at the point of aggravation that I am considering using another browser. I was anticipating updates might fix, but to no avail.

Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back.

We are having trouble restoring your last browsing session. Select Restore Session to try again.

Still not able to restore your session? Sometimes a tab is causing the issue. View previous tabs, remove the checkmark from the tabs you don’t need to recover, and then restore.

Dear Community,

Within a document that I am writing (personal use), I have hyperlinks to YouTube content for study purposes. Clicking these links have always worked, but as of today I get this now. If I type the exact same link into the address bar manually, it goes straight to the content, but clicking the link does not.

I was going to upload a screen shot that is like 102 KB. 20 minutes, and the circle is still going around. I think it maybe time to ditch Firefox. People all over the internet are saying that it is slower than other browsers. So many sites break. An old version of microsoft explorer displays pages better sometimes.

I hope this link shows you what I experienced.

Hey there, My PC just automatically updated Firefox for me today, but now all of my bookmarks are completely gone. I've checked to make sure a new profile wasn't created, but I still have only the one default one. I've confirmed that all my credentials are still remembered when navigating manually to the same site... just zero bookmarks, and no options available to restore then via an older backup, as Firefox failed to make any too.

Any recommendations?

Hello. New clean install of Windows 10 and added all my programs. I've just installed Zemana antilogger and it says it has found adware in Firefox. Big red warning saying - Adware!

c:\windows\system32\tasks\mozilla/firefox background update 308046b0af4a39cb

Malwarebytes didn't find anything and Norton 360 didn't find anything. So I am just checking if this should be quarantined or marked as safe.

I have installed quite a few programs since my clean install of Windows, including Paint.Net from Major Geeks and Windows 7 games from Winaero. All other programs downloaded were from mainstream sites such as Adobe and Microsoft.

My feeling is that this is a false positive, but I just wanted to check please if the above is a genuine part of Firefox. I literally only did the clean install and program downloads yesterday and this morning.
