PDFs opened using, Windows Default application, Always Ask, fails to occur

The behavior of FireFox saving PDF files has changed. I am using WIN10, FireFox 98.0.1 and have it setup to use windows default application and always ask where to save for PDFs.

BEFORE the problem: The PDF opens in Acrobat Pro IX. After clicking save I would be asked, where to save. I select the location to save the PDF. Then after this, subsequent PDFs downloaded would be saved to the last saved location. This process would repeat for a new website PDF load and save. This is the behavior I want now.

NOW with the problem: The PDF opens in Acrobat Pro IX. 1. Immediately, after a reboot, the save icon on Adobe is grayed out. I select save as and point to the desired directory. 2. For any subsequent PDF opened, the Adobe save icon is available. Files are saved to the desktop.

Please note I believe I once did get a popup asking where to save and I know I selected desktop.  Since that selection I am no longer asked where to save.

Please note I have looked and tried some of the suggestions at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files#w_choose-a-different-download-folder

but some of this advice needs to be updated for the new FireFox version--ex no JSON file is found at the file location covered in the advice.

I believe this issue started after the last FireFox update. Please help me restore behavior listed above under “BEFORE the problem”. Thanks.

Firefox 98.0.1 will not load some web pages that other browsers will. I get a message about Network Protocol Error with the option to "Try Again" which hasn't worked. I've tried many of the fixes suggested here but nothing changes. If I copy the link Firefox won't open and paste it in Brave or Opera the link loads fine. I don't want to quit Firefox but I can't spend time every day trying to fix it either.

I was tracking a package on the UPS website. I decided to sign up for their My Choice program. After I did that I could no longer track packages I just get the error "We are unable to complete your tracking request at this time. Please try again later.". I contacted them, UPS, and they had me try several things and the only one that would work is to use Chrome. Fire Fox will work if I use a private window. Whew do I go to fix this?

How can I prevent websites from tracking my mouse cursor? I was searching for the question for a long time and couldn't find any answers.

Basically. I open a site, I want to click on Back or close the tab and it sends a pop up like "wait, don't go!" etc.

Any ideas? I think about extension or option in settings/configs.

I guess like my question is very unique or was skipped by search engines.

I hope for help.

I have some local services under a local domain name: example.lena

Every time I try to access any of those services that are not in my history, Firefox chooses to search google instead of load up the url, with an option appearing under the toolbar saying: "Did you mean to go to http://example.lena/?

How can I force Firefox to first try the url instead of the google search?

Please bring back the option to let the system print dialog be the default. There's no need to fix what's not broken. I dislike the new FireFox dialog. I like and am used to the system print dialog, it works, does what I want, and it should be brought back for consistency with other applications.

I could previously fix this in about:config, but that option is now ignored.

I understand the desire to try something new, but it makes no sense to improve on what already works. And, to remove the about:config option means your imposing your will on me. FireFox never felt like an imposition before, this is like something I'd expect from Apple, not Mozilla.

Please bring back my choice and make it an easy configuration checkbox, no about:config voodoo.

Thanks!

Hello - Can someone provide me a simple explanation of what Firefox considers "Connected Services"? The Connected Services screen says "Everything you are using and signed into" - which I can sort of understand - BUT, what is Firefox DOING with its access to my PC, for one thing? At the Connected Services screen there is no link or button which provides an explanation - as to what Firefox DOES with the Connected Services. Any positive, constructive information will be appreciated. JFC

Out of the blue while sorting my bookmarks, wierd thick yellow dotted lines appeared and surround now every active button i click on in my browser. I tried using a User Chrome.css which did exactly nothing. (Yes it is activated in the config and yes the chrome folders is spelled small and yes it also has the correct css ending). I have no clue why this suddenly appeared and also stayed that way after restarting. Is there any way to fix this ? I use windows10 64 bit and the latest firefox version

Something has changed in a Firefox upgrade. I previously could change the print preference through about:config by changing print.tab_modal.enabled from =True to =False.

An external partner is embedding one of our websites and has been experiencing the following strange behaviour since FF v97.0:

[See image attached] You can't click any buttons within the iframe when you place the mouse on the button itself. But if you move the mouse ~2cm below the button (red arrow) it acts like it's hovering over the button and you can click it.

There were no code changes on our side and for FF v96.0.3 everything still works as expected. I thought the issue would perhaps be solved in this bug (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1758664) but I tried with version 98.0.2 and it's not fixed there. I'm however hesitant to report a bug in Bugzilla since I can't provide clear reproduction steps (company data).

Thank you for your help!

Firefox no longer asks whether to open or save files.

Until about a month ago, every time I clicked on a download link to save a file, Firefox asked whether I want to save the file to my downloads folder, or to just open it, which would save it to a folder in my temp folder that would be deleted when I close Firefox.

Now, out of nowhere, it doesn't ask the question anymore, it automatically assumes I want to save it to a folder (instead of "opening" it).

Before anyone tells me to go to Settings -> General -> Applications, and set the file types to "Always ask", I have tried, and there are two problems with it:

  • There are only a few file types in that list. While I can set Firefox to ask when downloading those types of files, anything else (like text files or MP3 files) is saved to the downloads folder without asking. I want it to ask what to do with any file, not just the specific file types in that list.
  • Even for the file types that are available in the list, if I choose to open a file instead of downloading, it is still saved to my downloads folder instead of the temp folder, and is not deleted after I close Firefox.

Also, I'm using Manjaro Linux with KDE, and I also have the Plasma Integration extension installed on Firefox.

Is there a firefox addon or method that will either engage the download manager of your choice, or catch and direct the download to your preferred download, much like Flashgot used to do in pre-Quantum days?

I use Free Download Manager. I have two addons related to it, but they are not a perfect solution. FDM has an option to "intercept downloads in your browser", but it's a kinda clumsy process.

I recently deleted the file with firefox settings (can't remember the name) cause i was unable to what netflix/hbo. now however, whenever i open firefox my pinned tabs (16 tabs) does not reload the pages as in does not refresh the content of the page. it use to refresh the page inside these pinned tabs when i open firefox but now the pages are still the old version. i have to refresh these pinned tabs manually.

so is there any settings to make these pinned tabs to actually refresh the page when i open firefox? i'm confuse why firefox it still shows that its loading the page cause it actually show the same page content that was a day before.
