Firefox currently blocks port 10080 to protect against a presumed security threat. Linksys routers use port 10080 to allow users to log in to the guest network so Firefox has rendered Guest Network logins to be unaccessable forcing router owner to allow "guests" to log in to the the primary lan and potentially cause issues with the very network they are trying to protect from outside issues. Firefox needs to provide a way for guests to log into the guest network within their software... particularly in the ios and android versions of the Firefox apps. Please provide a reasonable workaround so that I don't put my network at risk by allowing guests to log in to my primary network.

I am honestly in chock with Firefox's terrible decision of not providing any option for the user to delete downloaded files.

It is honestly amazing that they came up with such a terrible decision. My downloads folder is a complete mess now and there seems to be no way to fix this.

I don't understand why not just provide an option for the user to only open files. People should be able to choose their settings.

I refereed to this previous post and the solution there didn't work: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370409. By setting browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to false.

Is there actually no way to only open files now?

When I download a file before I even have a chance to save or open the file Firefox downloads the file and puts it on my desktop. I have to look at lots of .pdf files and this a bit annoying as I have to keep deleting all the files I dont want. The dialog box opens and I always choose open rather than save but Firefox has already saved a copy to my desktop. How can I stop this autosave please ? Cheers.

For over a decade I've used FF, and when I download things (99% of the time from Yahoo) I set FF to "always ask" what to do with downloads. Suddenly that changed and it started downloading everything automatically to the Download Folder.

I went to options and changed everything back to "always ask."

FF does always ask... but... it ALSO still auto downloads to the Downloads Folder now.

And I can't figure out how to stop that.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi, I had to recover my computer so I was re-downloading firefox and it looked as though I was missing some bookmarks so I clicked import -> restore and restored from today, only now I only have 11 bookmarks left out of thousands and I can't figure out how or where to restore them. I don't have any backup info on this computer since I had to wipe it completely but now it seems as though whatever sync I used has been overwritten or disrupted. My bookmarks are really important to me and I really need them back, is there anything I can do to restore them?

This ridiculous update just deleted everything on my firefox. All my book marks are gone, passwords into sites and accounts etc. EVERYTHING I had is gone. i have tried going into the "profile" folder and it says its blank. I am not an IT guru so I do not know how to follow all these insane instructions to get back what should have never been deleted. i will be deleting firefox and never using it again because some idiot decided to update my system without my approval and then it deleted everything.

Recently updated to version 105.0.1 and I've started to have problems with Twitch. I'm unable to login and keep getting the message: "Something went wrong. Please try again." so I cleared the cookies/site data. Still unable to login. I know this isn't an error with my account as I can login via Chrome with no issues. Then I tried downgrading to the previous version 104.0.2 and had no issues with Twitch. Most likely, this new version is creating an error with the Twitch site. Hopefully new updates will address this issue - in the meantime, hoping someone has a solution.

When attempting to log into support.discord.com, I can't click sign in, as a cookie is blocking me. Discord have told me as it's a specific problem with Firefox, I needed to ask, it also appears to be something that I've setup in Firefox, as a fresh install worked fine.

In the popup for logging in, I get a banner message stating: "Cookies required to use Firefox

To continue signing in using Firefox, allow cookies to be stored on this device. You might see this screen more than once. " with a continue hyperlink at the bottom. This generates a popup asking me to accept a cookie. I accepted this, but it's still blocking me from logging in. I have tried disabling my extensions that might block the cookie, and they have also allowed the cookie that was requested.

On a brand new browser, it's fine. I have strict blocking enabled, with ublock and duckduckgo's extension (all were disabled when I was testing if they were blocking it) and I still can't log in. I'm not sure what else is being blocked (other than google analytics, but that shouldn't stop me logging in).

I do also get some console errors: Uncaught ReferenceError: $ is not defined
