Hi,

I looking to get Firefox to open up a PDF in the browser WITHOUT downloading the file. The reason for this is because I want to bookmark the PDF allowing access to an up-to-date version of a document.

I have selected the option to ask where to the save file in the settings. I have also set the application settings for PDF to 'always ask'. So, when I open the link, I get a window prompt asking me to select 1 of 3 options: view in Firefox, view in selected application, or save. I select view in Firefox and it still downloads and opens the file.

I definitely know Firefox used to open up PDFs AS links because I have some bookmarked. Any suggestions on why this is and how to fix would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

To get search results you should not need to log in. There are a few reasons you may not be getting search results, but the most common reason I have found is that the browser you are using has pop-up/ad blocker enabled. This is especially true when using the Firefox browser. If possible, you may try either disabling the ad-blocker/pop-up blocker or switching browsers.? I am trying to research info in the NHHS ( New Hampshire-genealogy)

Thank You

Firefox 100

Have you noticed this? It's been annoying me for quite some time, so I finally googled for a possible solution to the problem, and found this thread

What's up with some YouTube videos not showing the date it was uploaded?

It turns out that the user must zoom out the page until the date emerges, right where it is supposed to be. Apparently, not necessarily the same for everybody. In my case, from 100% to 80%.

But I still don't think there is a consensus whether the cause it is the website, the browser, or both. Nor is there a suggested fix except for this workaround.

I have installed IBM Security Trusteer Rapport to my recent Lenova laptop..

But I cannot seem to be able to, or be allowed to, add IBM Security Trusteer Rapport to my Firefox browser (100.0.1 version) but it appears immediately in my Edge browser next to the address box. I have used Firefox for many years and it is my default browser.

My bank (Santander UK) strongly recommend this addon as it provides encryption protection.

Has Moxilla barred it from Firefox but if not, how can it be added? There is no way I can see to add Santander UK (or any other UK bank) manually to Rapports list of protected bank sites.

Any clarity on this would be most appreciated. Hector Currie

Google searches are occasionally freezing up Firefox and not processing. I'll type in my search, push enter and suddenly my entire desktop will hang, mouse will move slowly and jerk around before regaining full control. Once control is regained, Firefox will no longer respond and must be force closed and relaunched.

It's getting exhausting to the point I've used Edge for searches just to not be bothered.

Let me know what information I can provide to make diagnosis easier. I understand intermittent issues are rough to troubleshoot.

Hi, I browse exclusively full-screen, and I've had a recurring headache making the annoying full-screen animation go away since the inception of Firefox itself- it is the best browser by far and I am loathe to use anything else.

This question comes up time and time again, disabling animations through about:config is very much hit and miss and seems to work completely randomly, sometimes it does, sometimes it don't.

Well, now it don't. Again.

I have the following set:

full-screen-api.transition-duration.enter: 0 0 full-screen-api.transition-duration.leave: 0 0 full-screen-api.transition.timeout: 0 0 full-screen-api.warning.delay: 0 full-screen-api.warning.timeout: 0 dom.animations-api.core.enabled: false

Oddly enough, there used to be options for setting "cosmetic" animations too, but I have no option to change that since FF 100.

Can someone please let me know how to solve this because the annoyance is big enough for me to switch over to Opera or some other browser permanently for how consistently unreliable this function is.

Thank you.

I have 2-Step verification on Gmail. When I go to log in I get this: Insert your security Key into the USB. I cancel out of it and get this: Your phone can’t locate your device. Move your phone closer to the device where you’re signing in, and then try again. I "Try another way" and I try to get a "one-time security code" and it forwards me to a website where the cycle begins again. If I try "Auto-recovery" it sends me to google. I can access Gmail on the same machine via Chrome, but would rather not. I can also get it on Firefox on my phone.

I did recently turn on two-step and it asked if I wanted a key, and I thought it might mean Google Authentication, I think it meant a USB key.

Any thoughts? I rather not give up Firefox.

I have been having an issue, since just before the update to 100, where Google sites stop responding. Gmail will display banner at the top "OOPS - The system encountered a problem...", Google search from the search bar will do nothing, Google Maps will not load and any google web page will not load or refresh. Closing Firefox and restarting it will fix the issue, temporarily. At first I thought it was any web page, but I have tested other search engines and web pages, using Firefox while the Google pages are unresponsive, and it is limited to Google pages. I can open the affected Google pages with Edge, while Firefox is still "locked out".

Has anyone else noticed this issue?

Search doesn't work. I type in the address bar or open a new tab and type in the search box, which goes to the address bar, after I hit enter the google search shows in the address bar (https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=test) but nothing happens. no spinning, no error message just nothing. I've tried other search engines, same thing. It does work in troubleshoot mode and incognito. I do not have any extensions or add ins and use the default theme. No updates are available, I've cleared history (works very temporarily), & reinstalled.

Hello again......

Firefox has a search engine on the home page that when you enter information it converts to a small tab at the top of the Home Page...... In Microsoft Edge you put your information in the big square box in the center of the homepage and it does not convert to a tab at the top of the page... which makes it easier for people with slight vision problems to read.......

I am getting some advice on how to tweak this to get it to work ...but.... at the same time, it can cause instability in Fire Fox......

Solution: I want Firefox to correct this problem with an update to Firefox that will help anyone and everyone with this problem once and for all ..............

Thankyou for your help, .... Leonard C.

For about a month how I find that the Firefox download list opens by itself multiple times during the day. Most of the time I'm not even actively using firefox, it's just idling in the background. When it first happened I figured it'd be a quickly patched bug and so didn't ask around about it. But I've had a ff update since then and it still happens. Does anyone know why this is happening? I have not seen reports of this via search.

I'm on ff 9.0.1.
