Firefox seems to forget edits made to text boxes. I was reading a large pdf and adding notes to previously made text boxes. I thought I must be going crazy as I saw there was no notes I thought I had already made multiple times so I tested it. I edited a text box, scrolled a bit and continued browsing on another monitor. Checked in a minute and boom edit gone. If anyone has a solution I'd appreciate it as I have been using Firefox PDF editor for a bit and quite liked it until now.

You can check pdfjs.annotationEditorMode in about:config.

  • about:config => pdfjs.annotationEditorMode = 0

You can open about:config via the location/address bar. On the warning page, click "Accept the Risk and Continue" to open about:config.

Thanks for the help! Sadly this was already set to 0.

Did Firefox reload the page ?

You can check the about:memory and about:processes pages for info about all processes. There are several toolkit.aboutProcesses prefs in about:config to show more info. Also check the about:unloads page for info about the tabs.
