Today using Firefox 93.0 on my Windows 10 home computer I opened the browser to my Audible library on Audible.com and selected a book to download. The browser download window opened with the book file name but the extension wasn't .AAX but had been changed to .MP4. This did not happen when I used Microsoft Edge nor did this happen on my Windows 10 laptop which was still running Firefox 92.0. Once Firefox upgraded to 93.0 on my laptop I now get the same problem as I get on my home computer.

Audible technical support looked into the problem and found that this change wasn't caused by their servers.

I have discovered that if I change the file extension from MP4 to AAX I can load the audible book into iTunes and sync it over to my iPhone which is able to play the file as an audible book. This indicates to me that the actual AAX file was not converted to MP4. For some reason only the file extension was changed.

I wasn't able to find any setting in the Firefox browser that corrected this problem.

I thought Pocket's articles were supposed to be non-commercial, if "Sponsored stories" is turned off in the settings?

And yet Pocket has just recommended a highly commercial link that's far removed from a genuine article, and reads exactly like an advert. (https://www.inverse.com/entertainment/leaving-netflix-september-2021-star-trek-enterprise)

This "article" basically just forcibly tells the reader "YOU NEED TO" sign up to the premium video website "Netflix", without any explanation of why. Patently, it was funded by whatever company owns Netflicks.

The article also makes the outrageous claim that the TV show in question is "the most controversial sci-fi show on Netflix", but completely fails to back this up with facts, or any explanation at all. It's clearly just marketing rhetoric to generate interest in the show, because the show in question (which is 20 years old) was notoriously bland, isn't even remotely controversial, no one is talking about it, and there is absolutely no logical reason to re-watch it right now.

The article also tries to give the impression that the only way to watch this 20-year-old TV show is to sign up to the premium website Netflicks and watch it on a computer screen - which is absurd given that the show is constantly syndicated on TV around the world, and readily available on all home formats including DVD and Blu-ray.

I would like to know how I can complain about this to Mozilla, because it isn't right at all. If by some chance, this article was non-commercial, it would be a truly terrible, dishonest, badly-written article which completely lacked a point or purpose. But it's so obviously commercial.

I found countless other disingenuous "articles" on that site, all doing a similar thing with other TV shows—driving commerce to Netflicks under the pretense of a false sense of urgency. Mozilla should have nothing to do with garbage like this.

When dowloading an AAX type file from Audible, Firefox changes it to MP4 (downloads as AAX with other browsers).

Note, changing the file type after the download fixes the problem. But, is there a way to prevent it from happening in the first place? Also, why changing file type in the first place?

Hi!

Since most content is in English and search engines always link to the English version, I usually browse the english version of mozilla pages. But here on support in particular I have to contend with the pathetic date format where you can't tell which is day or month or year. So why can't I find a way to set the date format. Even the majority of tiny websites/forums have an option to specify the date format.

Despite what all the articles say, I much prefer reading on my desktop to my phone, so I find it peculiar that the Firefox reading list I've got going on iOS is nowhere to be found on desktop. Seems like plenty of people have asked about this in the past. Would really love this feature to be added soon!

My download speed has been *very slow* lately and I cannot figure out why. My Internet speed is around 3.3 MB/s, but Firefox is downloading files at around 40-80KB/s. Nothing else on my system is downloading/uploading at all, and it's only Firefox that seems to have this issue. If anyone has potential solutions, I'd love to hear them.

I've used Firefox as my default browser for years. I'm now on a Win10 laptop I've been using for over a year. I have not knowingly made any recent changes to FF. I'm on FF version 88.0.1 (64 bit).

Suddenly, yesterday, I found that I was blocked from viewing many YT videos and comments. YT says I am in restricted mode. It is not due to a setting on my YT/Google account, because I'm not logged in.

Exact YT messages: "Video unavailable--This video is restricted. Please check the Google Workspace administrator and/or the network administrator restrictions." And "Restricted Mode has hidden comments for this video."

However, I have no problem viewing them in Chrome. So logically it's a FF problem.

Also, I discovered that other sites are affected. For example, if I run a "domain lookup" on the ICANN website, I get less detailed results than if I run the search on Chrome! https://lookup.icann.org/

Switching from Strict to Standard Tracking Protection didn't help. Then I did a FF refresh but that also didn't help.

Suggestions? Be aware I'm not a coder or any kind of super techhie.

I've been using Windows Quicken and Firefox for many years and have one ongoing annoyance... When I download a .qfx file of transactions from some financial institution, a window pops up asking what should Firefox do with this file.. (Firefox is my default browser)... There is a choice to open the file with Windows Quicken and I select that and things work fine. However, there is also an optional check box that supposedly gives you the choice to "Do this automatically for files like this from now on". I check that box but it never seems to work... I am always asked the question about what should Firefox use to open a qfx file. What can I do to get FIrefox to use Windows Quicken to automatically open the file?
