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.

A website MultiSafepay.com has saved my CVV number in Firefox.

How do I edit the autofill data?

I can't get to the same payment page, to be in a position to delete it.

Most links on this matter refer to:

 Options => Privacy & Security => Forms and Autofill

However in my Version: Firefox 98.0.1 (64 bit) running on an up to date Windows 10 this feature is missing or deprecated.

Can anyone say how I could edit/delete this specific entry, or point me in the direction of where this data is stored?

In the mean time I can't recommend using Firefox for entering critical security data, where websites can allow the storage of CVV numbers.

Hi all, i have a Firefox 98.0.1 on Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon. It's been running perfect but since yesterday when i try to visit accounts.google.com to log in to Gmail or visit youtube.com the tab always crashes. The tab crashes as soon as the site is loading so i'm not even entering anything. I have Windows 10 running on the same machine, problem does not occur there. I also have Chromium on Linux, problem does not occur.

I have tried clearing cache, disabling all plugins, disabling hardware acceleration, creating new profile, refreshing Firefox, running Firefox in troubleshooting mode, completely removing Firefox including hidden files.

I yesterday had a problem with the file system or something. A black screen showed some error message, i quickly googled it, typed in something like sdfk or sfdk and it repaired something broken on the hard disk i guess...

All crash reports have the signature "_dl_relocate_object"

Can anyone help? I've submitted a crash report with the ID 1bb292d9-61e5-4af1-942d-b5bee0220318 Thanks

edit: I also ran a RAM test with memtest86, it ended with not a single error. After trying to revert to a previous system snapshot i ended up with a black screen and code lines telling me to install a kernel first and some spooky grub mode. In the end i re-installed the whole OS, now it works.

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.

Since the last update to Firefox I have not been able to print using the system dialog. Only the new Firefox print screen comes up. How can I return to system printing dialog?

Also the ability to set print quality in the Firefox print screen does not exist. I can do copies, black or color, duplex printing, etc but not set the print quality like draft, text, photo, etc.

I also have many forms I've setup for printing and I can't access these.

Just now, I tried to use "Email Link..." under the File Menu and got a pop-up asking me to "Choose an application to open the mailto link." I have seen this before, several times, usually after updating Firefox, IIRC.

This time, however, Gmail is not presented as an option, in this pop-up. Clicking "Choose..." just opens up a Windows Explorer file-picker window.

I tried to fix this in Tools > Settings, under General > Applications. There, "mailto" just shows "Use other..." and if I click that, the "Select Helper Application" pop-up window is basically blank, with a message at the bottom saying "No applications were found for this file type."

See attached images.

I am running v98.0.2 on Win 10 Pro.

I've just suddenly had this problem starting today: downloading files through the browser is now automatically sending them to my computer's Downloads folder, even though I have my download settings set to 'Always ask you where to save files'. I double-checked to see if my settings had been reset by the update (they had not), and I even unselected and reselected the option to see if that helped anything (it didn't).

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!

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.

I'm having a number of issues with my Firefox out of nowhere.

1. My mouse will no longer scroll, nor will my keyboard arrows. I must use my touchscreen. 2. I have "new tabs" instead of "new windows" selected, yet if I click anything, it goes to a new window. 3. I cannot close tabs without right clicking. 4. I cannot SWITCH tabs at all. 5. I cannot close Firefox without going to my start bar and right clicking. 6. Firefox seems to be aware something is wrong, opens up in a troubleshooting mode... and then doesn't troubleshoot.

(It is entirely possibly my infant slammed on the keyboard and changed a setting I can't find.)

You used to be able to show or hide the downloads list when you started a download. I had my browser set to not show the recent list. Either an update or something else changed that. Every time I click to save a download now, it shows a list of the last 5 downloads that cover a quarter of my screen. I have to click it off every time. Most annoying. I looked through all the settings menus and could not find the option. Where did it go please?

Since ca. few weeks such PDFs are now downloaded to Desktop - and not removed afterwards! It's quite annoying to clear them again and again. I've checked, my %TEMP% and %TMP% are set correctly and writeable.
