Lately, when I try to create a desktop shortcut from the Github website, it instead create a folder, with the correct title of the page, and what looks like a link inside, with an abbreviated website name, but is not a shortcut at all.

Example: Try dragging the address bar padlock from this page to your desktop

Welcome to Refined GitHub!

Same thing happens when I try to drag its bookmark to the desktop.

Creating the shortcut from Chrome works properly, so I assume this is a Firefox problem.

While using Firefox I am unable to access two of my online accounts, one for my VPN and one for my Credit Union. So I use Microsoft Edge to access these two websites with no issue. I get this security warning using Firefox: "Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to www.ftwccu.org.

Firefox created a second Downloads folder/library when it opens a PDF to view in the browser.

file:///C:/Users/Name/Documents/Downloads/NightSkyNotesJan2022OrionDetail.pdf

I seem to remember finding lots of temp pdfs and other files in a temp folder under user/appdata/local or roaming and having to delete this files manually from time to time. Putting the files in an easy to find folder is a good step but my Downloads Library/folder had previously been moved to D:\Downloads via choose new target from the library properties. D drive is an internal HD, C drive is an SSD. Why didn't Firefox just use the existing Downloads library instead of creating a new one on the C drive?

Ideally, if you are viewing a pdf in a Firefox tab it would delete the file if you did not download it so it does not clog up your drives. If I know i want to keep a pdf I would save to my chosen folder and view in Acrobat instead of reading in a browser tab.

I agree with a previous post i saw requesting an option for the user to specify a temp file folder on another drive when viewing pdfs to preserve some life on the SSD boot drive.

Windows 10, Firefox 101.0.1

"Delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" setting not remembered - I have this ticked but when I restart Firefox, it is UNticked. I created a new clean profile, and the same thing happens with that. This started I think once I updated to version 102.0 64bit recently, and seems to have broken Twitter login - each time I have to go to settings, and clear history - after doing some experiments as to what bit of History needed clearing, it was the setting "offline site data" that was the critical one. Why won't Firefox, even in a brand new profile with no addons, REMEMBER that I have ticked ""Delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" setting not remembered"? Firefox desktop, 102.0 64 bit, Windows 7. Thank you.

Hello,

The issue is as follows: unless I use 'alerts.useSystemBackend = true' (which I don't want to do), I'm not getting any push notifications.

Using this test site: https://www.bennish.net/web-notifications.html - the logs goes as follows: Notification #1 queued for display Notification #1 closed

What I've tried: troubleshooting mode, reinstalling firefox, using a completely fresh&clean installation, and even reinstalling windows. Even after reinstalling windows and immediately installing firefox, the problem persists. However, it doesn't happen on another machine I've tested on, everything works perfectly there.

What could possibly be the problem? Please help!

I noticed during a firmware download with the file extension .DAT that Firefox removed the extension. The file was not recognizable during an attempted firmware upgrade afterward. This is a new issue occurring sometime in the past several months, since last firmware update. Firefox preferences are set to download .DAT files. No other settings are listed for that file extension. I verified the issue points toward Firefox by checking the download with another web browser which completed the download with the extension.

So, I've migrated from Chrome to Firefox, and it's great, but I have a couple of issues now. One of them is with web push notifications from Google. First, I had an issue with notifications not showing up at all (or maybe they do show up, but the timeout is short and I miss them), but I've solved that with this in about:config set to tru:

dom.webnotifications.requireinteraction.enabled

Now, notifications do stay on until I click them, but when I click them, all they do is close, disappear. And I'm talking only about YouTube notifications, when I get them from other websites, they work fine, I click on them and the proper link opens.

Any ideas how to solve this?

Two days ago I tried to log into my account at addons.mozilla.org, but the page would not take the codes from my Google authenticator, or any of the saved recovery codes. I was able to change the password via email reset, but no way getting in to disable the 2-factor thing. I can't even seek support from that account, and this is why I'm using a different account to post here.

I want to add that this behavior started suddenly without my having changed anything on my account. The support page that instructs users to reset the clock on Google Authenticator is incorrect, too, since this app does not provide that function (maybe it did in the past, I guess).

Bottom line: I'm stuck and my addons are not getting updated. I'm sure Mozilla wants me to update them, but they have to provide a way for me to log in. Regrettably, it seems to be impossible to talk to a person.

Any help will be appreciated. The account with the problems is fruiz500@gmail.com Thanks!

I have read all of the other threads about why Gmail will not work in Firefox and I have tried the solutions (although I could not find where to adjust SSL settings in firefox and the link does not take me to the original thread)

I just reinstalled my windows OS and firefox because of other issues. But this means both are in the default state. When I try to load Gmail in firefox it just clocks or does nothing. When I do the same in Microsoft's browser it loads up fine. I have security set to "Standard" I removed HTTPS only mode just in case that was this issue. I have the latest Windows 10 OS and the latest to date Firefox (102.0)

All other sites seem to load fine.

An automatic update of Firefox which resulted in a "quit/create new profile" choice has removed all my bookmarks

Of the four profiles stored in "about:profile" three are identical (ie. have only the default bookmarks stored) and one, generates a "quit/create new profile" message.

The "bookmarksbackup" folder (in /home/user/.Mozilla/Firefox/zs1jki8t.default) is empty.

The "import/backup" option (in Manage Bookmarks) offers nothing to choose. There is no 'list of dated automatic backups.'

Firefox did not create an "Old Firefox Data" folder on the desktop.

Browser privacy "strict". "Never remember history" was selected.

Hi,

so for 2 versions now (since 101.0.1, while 101.0 was still ok) everytime when I'm in the Library/Bookmark Manager and expand any folder on the left, in the main window with the bookmarks, it jumps to the very top.

That is especionally annoying when you've selected some bookmarks to sort into folders which you first need to expand.

Why was that change? That behaviour wasn't there in earlier versions; and also makes no sense.
