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.

I use Firefox to read books in pdf format. I want to record the location everytime I close the pdf file so that I can easily go back to where I leave last time. But I notice no matter where I am in the file, the url does't change. I think it's the reason why everytime I click the bookmarked file and the Firefox just open the file on the first page, not the location I leave last time. Is there any way to record the location I leave?

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!

I used to be able to open a file (with a program) without it being saved. Ever since 98.0, the "open" option saves the file regardless. I even had to find a work around to get the "What should Firefox do with this file?" prompt.

Is this no longer possible?

Thanks.

As the solution in that thread was a full format I'm reopening this to find a more precise solution.

I tried everything on that thread without success. Deactivated every plug-in and the problem persist. Running in safe-mode corrects the problem.

I attach an image of the profiler (I can send the full profile if needed)

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

Many file types are no longer listed under Settings > Applications>Content Type at about:preferences#general. I used to be able to click on a file in an email like a Word or Excel document, and it would come up on my screen. Now Firefox asks me to Save them. I don't want to automatically save files without first looking at them. How can I get those file types in the Application list again?

I have attached a pic of the file types I have left to chose from. There used to be a lot more. How can I get back all the missing choices I have had there for years?

Click the Settings icon in the top right of your browser window and choose "Preferences" 2.From the left hand side of the page, choose "Content" 3. Under Notifications, press "Choose

There is no Preferences category under my settings icon. There is no Content on the left side of the page when I go to Settings There is no Notifications label from which to select Choose.

Hi there, I am working on a site with Segment API and need to load their JS on my site for it to work. Whats happening is, I get the following error: "Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://api.segment.io/v1/p. (Reason: CORS request did not succeed). Status code: (null)."

The weird part is, it happens only in Firefox incognito mode. It works on Chrome, Edge, Opera.

I am wondering if this is by design or if it is a bug.

Firefox version 98.0 (64-bit).

Having just upgraded my Debian 9 machine to Mint 20, this has updated my firefox browser.

Everything was going fine until I came across the problem where by all image downloads are saved as webp images, a format that my favourite image editing software cannot handle.

This is a bit of a pain and has made me start looking at alternative web browsers.

Just thought you should know how simple things can cause a loss of support.
