I recently had hard drive problems and during the ensuing melee, I discovered that Firefox has stored well over 100k files with the general name {xxx...}.final. Being the curious sort--and given that these boogers are taking up almost 1Gb--I looked at a few and they appear to be related to websites that I visited. I can see keeping some recent things around, but some of this goes back, literally, to the day I bought my PC. Um...that's a lot of files and a lot of space for places I visited once and will never go to again. Some of the websites no longer exist, so obviously those files are wasted space.

I am unable to find much about this on the web, either via Google or the help here. A few people have brought it up, but no one seems to know what to do. The help here goes nuts with the search term "final" and brings up a plethora of hits containing "finally" and so forth, but nothing useful. "}.final" isn't much help, either.

The path is C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile name>\storage\default

Questions: 1) Can some or all of this be deleted? 2) Is there a way to tell Firefox not to be so anal about keeping so many useless things?

Given the sheer quantity of these things, it would make future backup/restores easier if I could trim some of the fat, but I don't want to mess things up, either.

Thanks...

All New York Times Cooking recipes printed from Firefox 109.0 print with the error noted above (The "end of recipe bar" and "Private Note" heading, which usually print at the end of the recipe, over-print wrapped text at the top of the second page of the recipe obscuring underlying wrapped text.). This error had appeared occasionally in the past, but now is consistently present. I have refreshed my up to date version of Firefox and cleared old print settings. The error shows up on printing to two separate printers and it shows up when printing from a desk top and a lap top computer with synced Firefox, and from a separate lap top with Firefox that is not synced. The error DOES NOT show up on printing with either Chrome or Edge browsers.

NY Times Cooking customer Service has not received inquires about this error and suggested the error lay in a settings issue.

Have others reported this error?

All suggestions will be appreciated.

Thank you, Fred Pintz

Impossible to create a shortcut of a web-page on desktop or a folder by drag-&-drop on Mac

Hi, I'm having this very annoying problem with Firefox (v109.9) on my MAC (macBook Pro 2020 - macOS Monterey v12.6). I used to do this (and actually still successfully doing it, on another MAC machine) to create a web page shortcut on the desktop or in a folder, by drag and drop, but it's impossible for me to do it on this machine and I can't figure out what could be the problem.

After clicking on the padlock icon, to the left of the address bar, I can easily drag it to the destination I prefer (eg a folder) but when I release the mouse button the operation doesn't work. Unlike what happens in the other MAC machine, doing the same operation, the button does not turn into the green "+" icon and suddenly disappears, without doing anything and without giving me any warning.

I've tried reading suggestions on the web, but haven't found anything that really gives me a solution. Could it be one of my browser's security settings? Please, please, could you help me? I need this feature very often, so if I don't fix this soon I will be forced to switch browsers.

Thank you very much for you attention! Lu

When I play a video or audio, the audio stops abruptly if i add a new tab or switch between tab. This is of recent nature. There is no yellow marks on the device manager. When I click the sound is totally gone. I have not changed any settings. I tried a thread solution of making false in auto pref media in about:config. But that does notfix the problem. why this happens and how to fix it I was adding speakers to a pc after quite long time and the sound plays well. But i could not hear the audio if i change the tab or add a new tab

I have installed Strongbox; however, it will not add to the toolbar in the upper right of the browser where other extensions appear. Clicking on the puzzle piece just takes me to the page of installed extensions. Even though it indicates it is installed, I find no way to access this password manager.

I use the most current Firefox on Windows 10.

Hello,

A few weeks ago something changed in my Firefox browser where popup boxes do not show. For example, if I want to download a file, the pop-up box with the options for downloading do not show. If I want to attach or upload a file, the popup does not show. Even if I want to change a setting in my my Firefox account, I cannot if it requires a popup box.

If I restart my computer (not the browser), the problem goes away, but eventually it happens again.

It is really disruptive. Now I have to do about 60% of my work in another browser. All of my account info, bookmarks, and passwords are saved with my Firefox account, so I would prefer to be able to use Firefox. Any suggestions on how to fix? I should also not--this has persisted despite updating.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Since a few days ago I can no longer log in to my mail account using Firefox version 109.0.

It works perfect if I use Microsoft Edge but Firefox is my favourite.

The mail account I refer is: https://www.mail.com/ When I open mail.com the page opens normally but there is no login-boxes for user and password. Is this something Firex can fix? Or is it me who don't understand how it works?

Best regards Jan Danielsson

I recently updated my system (OpenSuse15.4) which included a Firefox update to version 109.0.

I regularly use my mic for google voice, however even though I can select my microphone in Google voice, It never shows any input.

I tested my mic in other apps and it works fine. When I pull up my systems pulse audio volume control (pavucontrol), it does not show firefox in the recording tab like it used to when using Google Voice.

To test to see if it was a Google Voice error, I also tried testing my mic at https://mictests.com/, and zoom.com, but after selecting my desired input device, mictests.com was also unable to record anything, and again, pavucontrol did not show anything being recorded.

I have attached an image of pavucontrol that shows audacity recording audio. Normally, I would also see Firefox in this window when using the mic.

My Firefox browse is frequently unable to log into many financial sites, most importantly my Scotia bank. this happens almost every week or 2 and I am forced to use Microsoft edge or Chrome which log in fine. This can sometimes happen as frequently as once a week or it will go 2-3 weeks without problems. Is this a Firefox issue or are 3 banks, 1 credit union, Credit Bureau, government and medical sites all to blame?

I run dual monitors with multi-tab Firefox on both--different sets of tabs. How can I--or can I--set my Home Page to all the tabs open on both monitors and have clicking the Home button put me back to those two sets of tabs? I can set Home on one monitor or the other, but there seems to only be one 'Home' slot and it evidently is whichever was more recently set using "set home to current open tabs" (I think that's close to the wording)

For the last couple of months I have had problems streaming some of the channels that come via Sling when I try to watch them on my Dell Latitude E5450 laptop. I can see them fine on my regular t.v. but now not on the laptop. That's a huge change in the last few months because for years I could stream every Sling channel to my laptop. Since my t.v. does not use Firefox, that suggests the problem is something Firefox has done. Not surprising, I guess. Probably happened when it was fixing some other something it screwed up. Nonetheless, any ideas for how to resolve this WITHIN Firefox capabilities? (And don't suggest it's Sling's fault. Sling streams just fine, thank you very much, in Edge.)

One: When I add a login in Firefox such as: https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/services/my-account/access.html#a4-2 (which is where I need to get my tax information)

It only saves: https://www.canada.ca (which is useless)

Two: When I add a login in Firefox such as: 192.168.0.1 (which is the address of my router)

I saves all the information but will not offer the actual password, only the login user.

Safari handles all this wonderfully but Firefox is terrible. I only use Firefox so I can use Ublock Original to get rid of the damn adverts from everywhere...

Is there something I'm doing wrong other than following the Firefox prompts to save a password?
