I save a lot of images from certain sites, and prior to me finally installing the latest update because your stupid system notifies me every few hours of an update and I dismiss 20 times a day for weeks on in.... I found that this latest update ruined firefox even further because now every single time I download an image, it pops the stupid download list on top of everything till I click somewhere instead of silently downloading like it used to do. I found no options at all for disabling this new terrible feature that you for some reason forced on us against our will yet again.

Hello,

Please can you tell me how I can click on a word document and for the document to automatically open without having to click the link in my downlaods? See screenshot of the download box that appears in the top right that I have to click to open the word document.

It does it for a PDF document but not for a word document.

Hi everyone,

Up until the latest FF release, opening an .ics (calendar file) link defaulted to the OS's preferred application; in my case Outlook. Now, every time I click on an .ics link FF asks where I want to save the file. I schedule ZOOM meetings all day and heavily rely on this feature.

I tried looking in FF's Files and Applications section in settings and .ics is not even listed as a file extension. I don't know how to add it.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Starting yesterday, the button next to the address bar for download progress will randomly open as if I clicked on it. Happens whether or not something is downloading and whether or not there's anything in the download history or not. I haven't changed anything with Firefox. No new addons or settings changes. I didn't change anything on my system, either. Same day as any other. Just started happening.

Hello. I noticed that Firefox (98.0.2) doesn't even ask if the file should be saved or opened with a program when downloading some file types. Unfortunately, these file types (e.g. GPX) are not listed under Settings --> General --> Files and Applications, so that I could assign them to a program or specify that they should always be asked. And I can't add these files somehow... I have also deleted the file "handler.json" in the profile folder, hoping to be asked then. But that doesn't happen. GPX files, for example, are assigned to the GSAK program in the system - but Firefox just wants to save them and doesn't offer the option to open them directly in GSAK. Does anyone know advice how I can get Firefox to give me the choice? Thanks a lot.

Late last week, something changed in Firefox browser. I used to download csv files and Firefox would open them with the option to save as an excel file. Now it does not. I have to save it as csv then convert it to excel. It also doesn't seem to save my settings on the website I'm downloading from - I always have to manipulate the settings before downloading. It is a huge headache and I have resorted to using Chrome instead.

Lately when I download an image, from Google expanded images on the right side for example, the download drops down a menu. If I have made multiple downloads the list gets longer and now blocks the area of the page I am working on. I don't need this downloads drop down menu and cannot find a way to stop it. I would prefer if it didn't display unless I clicked on it.

I have searched the net but can't find any answers. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Tom.

Since the update to FF 98.0 I cannot click on a .zip file & have it open to Windows File Explorer. It only allows me to download & save the .zip file and then extract the files from there. I have to click on dozens of these files per day for my job & would rather not have to save each .zip file & then extract the file contents. In Settings > Applications, .zip files are not on the list of file types or applications. Is there a way to add them to the list? Is there some other work-around? Thank you!

After a forced update, firefox stopped giving the popup that lets you choose what to do with the file.

A temporary fix is to go into options and set "Always ask you where to save files", however this is clunky, and much much slower, so is there any way to get this popup back?

If not, then i will have to migrate to a different browser for safety, since this new "Feature" can be easily abused by hackers and malicious websites.
