Is it a bug or a design decision. I mean if I have a lot of opened tabs and I intend to close just one tab, then a slight delay in releasing the key combination would result in closing rest of the tabs. Shouldn't it be like Press and Release key combination to perform the corresponding action which would ensure the action is performed just once. That is what it was like on Chrome and Edge.

Try the following public url to open with Acrobat Reader or set the download option in FireFox options: https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docLocale=en_US&docId=c04203920 It will open always in the built-in PDF Viewer of FireFox. pdfjs.disabled is set to true. Any idea how to change this?

Firefox is allowing a pop-up to open for one site https://www.roomkey.com

When I go to https://www.wyndhamhotels.com/#, search for hotels, and then click on a hotel, a pop-up opens to https://www.roomkey.com/hotels (usually to a specific hotel).

I usually use Chrome for accessing https://www.wyndhamhotels.com/# because I do not get a pop-up when doing the same thing in Chrome.

I have pop-ups disabled in Firefox.

wysiwyg – when attempting to print online WSJ article, text at right margin gets cut off, despite what appears on the screen. In Chrome, the article prints correctly, except for the fact that (unlike in Firefox) if there is an ad block in the middle of the article Chrome will print a white space (say, about 3 inches in height) where ad appeared. Suggested fix – to delete print_printer – did not work. Second suggested fix – to edit prefs.js file did not work. My HP laptop’s resolution is 3840 x 2160 which may be part of the problem. Nevertheless in Chrome text prints correctly.

I am notified an update is ready to download and I click. Firefox than goes unstable. Hour glass blinking and jumping around. To stop it I must restart the computer. After restarting, I must go to test compatibility. After running that it will run fine with the new update. This started after 72.0 came out.

Hello, I created a Firefox account yesterday, but decided today that I would not need it. So, I logged into my account, clicked on 'Edit my profile', scrolled down to the bottom of the page where it is written (in red) 'Close account and delete all profile information'. I clicked on it to open a dialog box entitled: "Are you sure?". I entered my user name to confirm, and then clicked on "Delete my Account" (red thumbnail). Guess what: nothing happens when I click on "Delete my account"! (The dialog box remains there, as if I haven't yet clicked on "Delete my account") Your assistance will be much appreciated! Thanks.

For years one of the most useful features of firefox especially over chrome has been it's standalone functionality. Once unzipped ff directory could be copied onto a usb and used on any computer ! This allows user to bring customized ff with them to use on any similar os. portable apps is the standalone ver for windows, luckily mozilla made linux version so the whole ff folder is portable. Thank you mozilla for maintaining this useful functionality.

On debian 9.12 Got the error: [ error while loading shared libraries: libatomic.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory ]

searched around and seems the problem likely is where ff looks for libatomic.so.1 normally libatomic.so.1 lives in usr/ or urs/bin .

where does ff search for libatomic? has anyone had experience with resolving libatomic shared object issue? solved?

Every day I search for something or other and discover mid-search that I'm using that loathsome stupid brain dead Yahoo search engine. I keep trying to set my preferences and they keep reverting. Don't give me a long complicated procedure to fix the problem, fix it yourself. Get rid of Yahoo or get rid of me. I'll start using Chrome or Safari or Opera. Lots of competition. Incompetence doesn't last long. Goodbye stupid Firefox.

Ich sende Ihnen gern einen langen Bericht mit allen Informationen. Allerdings nur wenn mich jemand dazu persönlich auffordert, zum Beispiel mit einer email oder SMS . Warum erst dann ? - Weil auch ich meine Zeit nicht gestohlen habe. Weil ich mir die Arbeit nur dann mache , wenn ich daran glaube oder vermuten kann , daß meine Informationen auch gelesen werden.

Hey all,

Firefox is blocking images in my Gmail (Screenshot 1). Red is where images usually are. This isn't happening in Chrome and it's happening on Firefox on another computer when I log in to my Gmail account. I think the culprit is Enhanced Content Blocking, as you can see in the second screnshot where it says it's blocking 3 images. I have white listed Gmail from Enhanced Content Blocking but it still will not stop blocking those images. I have:

- cleared cache - updated firefox to newest version - uninstalled and reinstalled - restarted computer - refreshed firefox - turned off uBlock Origin and all other add-ons - tried in private mode

A coworker that usually uses Chrome downloaded a fresh install of Firefox and it worked fine for him.

after the panic subsided, I contacted all 8 of the sites listed which of course I could not remember a single PW, and only 1 Site Admin was ready and willing to help me - thank you Cafe Press ! Part of my situation is that two of my three former email addresses were dropped when AOL bought Verizon's EMail Division and only let us bring 1 suitcase per person. Trouble is, the other two addys were sub accounts, one was a Business Account so much of the info was quite detailed but the same. But these days, data breaches are so comon (yawn?) it's almost not shocking. But 8 ? Yikes. Here's the thing, I thank you for the alerts, but you scare me to death then leave me hanging. I have no idea which 5 sites had the same PW (huh ?). I supposed over 20 years online and at 2500 logins, at some point my brain ran out of creative unique login's. I use a Password Program but it doesn't catch 3 email addresses that may share a common PW. Any suggestions how to "Resolve" those breaches which I can barely remember where I've left my britches ? Thanks. 5/2500 = .002 % P.W.s repeated , not the worst odds in the world. Spread that % over a 22 year span, the equation is so low there is an "e" in the final outcome !

After making a new account, I did not get past threads into this account.

distinction would be OK - but bright blue - at least give the option to change the color. It hurts my eyes. I don't really understand anymore why everytime there is an update, more and more customizations are eliviated. Maybe it's finally time to leave Mozilla. Nothing but pain since a long time.

This may not mean much to the mozilla crew - but it is utter annoyance to me and time consuming to "fix" after every update.I look at that screen all day, every day, and - yes, I dare to customize it so it is easier for me to work. Just one example, and I am not alone at this: every time after an update the tab bar is moved up, which does not make sense to people that use it all day long. The 71. update was even worse, not even a space left for it anymore. Resulting again, as always go back to chrome css, trying to get the stuff back one works with all the time.

It just by now is too cumbersome to already know that something will again brake or be eliminated with the next update. I have weathered mozilla since it's inception. But am just tired of always having to adjust the same things, yet needing a different css line again.
