When I print the resulting web page in Chrome, it maintains the scroll position of the inner div. But when I do the same in Firefox, it always scrolls the inner div to the top.

Is this an issue with Firefox? Is there a way for me to maintain the scroll position?

I updated a sound file on a web server I have access to. When I reloaded a page with a player to play that file, the old sound file still is the one presented by the browser.

Go into Preferences, Privacy, manage data, select the domain involved, delete all the data. Reload the page again. Old sound file still is the one presented by the browser.

Reload again, this time using CMD-R, the hard reload key combo for MacOS. Old sound file still is the one presented by the browser.

Delete sound file from webserver, CMD-R. Old sound file still is the one presented by the browser.

Click play button. Old sound file plays.

Right click on sound control, select Save Audio As... Saving file to my computer appears to happen. However, the file saved is only 281 bytes. When I try playing it, audio player yells at me and says that is not a sound file.

Reload the page in another browser, it reports sound file missing.

Sound from old file still plays in FireFox.

First, I went into settings and deleted the data for the domain where this sound comes from.

Reloaded the page,

All I really want is to get firefox to play the new sound file, but its belief in the old file won't let it see the new one. Firefox has stashed the old sound file somewhere on my system and it keeps insisting that is the file I should have.

Well, there is one other thing I want. I would like acknowledgement that this is a bitchable situation. I hate it that tech world always says every problem is my fault. Maybe if the techworld would stop blaming users for problems they might start figuring out how to handle the news they filter more honestly as well.

which takes you to https://idmsa.apple.com/appleauth/auth/signin?widgetKey=92f19b477c5c9be6ab17f3ec2b1b2b7db4d00a9a8c973e3d6c90dac08b91de71&language=GB-EN&iframeId=daw-73c470e4-b981-4226-ba0b-64a0627e5217&appId=632

All I get is a blank page.

Hi all,

MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019) macOS Big Sur - 20A5374i Firefox 82.0b3

This is a rather weird one to try and explain.

Ever since macOS Big Sur Public Beta's -- and a mix of Firefox Stable and most recently, a few Beta versions the following happens:

When streaming any form of video/audio via Firefox -- YouTube comes to mind especially -- and swapping between tabs or other Windows or hitting screen resize, pausing/resume.. or just general usage while a stream is happening -- an incredibly weird "scratching" noise is experienced over the sound output. I mainly use the built-in MacBook Pro Sound.

Incredibly difficult to reproduce this, but I am not under high usage/load at the time that it occurs and sometimes am.

Will keep this thread updated if I find a way to reproduce -- but hoping someone else is experiencing this too to assist.

New PDF reader always uses the same name "document.pdf" when saving via keyboard shortcut (cmd+S on macOS)

With the previous version of Firefox (with the old PDF reader) I used to open PDF article from physics journals (e.g. https://journals.aps.org/prl/pdf/10.1103/PhysRevLett.125.131101 ) and save them using cmd+C (on a Mac). The default name of the file used to be "PhysRevLett.125.131101.pdf" while now it's always "document.pdf", which is very inconvenient, since I have to manually rename the files before downloading. If I save the file by clicking on the download icon in the reader, I still get the same more informative filename (but I don't get to choose the location for the download). I'm wondering why the name of the file is not consistent between the two ways of saving documents. Is there a way to go back to the old behaviour (unlikely, I guess)? Anyway I'd like to suggest the developers to go back the old way of handling the file name, if there are no strong reasons for the change.

I teach classes that use Adobe Connect and Flash. In trying to login this week, the window is zoomed in and I can't zoom out. When I try, only the pane with text and attendee list shrinks. I don't have the problem with Safari but I like Firefox better. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, Adobe Connect and Adobe Flash. The problem continues even after doing this.

In my last version of FF, my Mac was able to speak selected text in FF. Speaking text works in all other applications, but not in my updated FF 80.0.1. Although... if I select text on a FF page to speak, I can only hear the spoken FF text when I click over to another open application. When I click back to the FF page, speaking the text stops. If I click back to the other app like TextEdit... then my Apple Speech continues to read the text selected on the FF page. The only way to hear any selected text on a FF page, is to select the text, use my Apple speech command button and then click over to another open application, until the spoken text in FF is finished speaking. This is not convenient. This issue only started with FF 80.0.1.

How can this be fixed, so my Mac's speech commend will read selected text on a FF page? I use Apple Speech command to read back my longer posts I’m getting ready to post on a webpage to make sure it makes sense.

In short... I can no longer use Apple's speech command to read selected text on a FF 80.0.1 page. This only started happening in this new 80.0.1 Firefox.

I just started using Firefox on iMac (10.15.6), and the media control keyboard shortcuts are not working at all. I found information that space bar is to play and stop, and arrows for rewind and fast forward, but none of them works. The play/rewind/fast forward/ keys on iMac seem to work only on safari or Music App. Can someone tell me what may be the problem or what are the correct keyboard shortcuts in control video streaming?

Thank you.

Since update to version 81. a few days ago, my flash player ( adobe ) is not working properly on Facebook Farmville game. Page loads and prompts me for flash - but when page loads up it is way way oversized and unable to get it to normal size. Unable to play the game at all on Firefox browser.

I have spent a few days trying everything I could think of ( including re-installing adobe flash player). I have found no fix.  I now have to use my google chrome browser to play my daily game, of which I am not happy..  don't personally like google. 
Do you have any suggestions ..  or can I go back to the previous version of firefox, where I had no problem with flash player?

Hello,

J'aime utiliser Firefox pour le développement de mes sites internet. Mais un point m'exaspère et me fait perdre beaucoup de temps. Je m'explique.

Lorsque j'apporte des modifications CSS, parfois ceux-ci ne s'actualisent pas lorsque je refresh la page. Il me faut régulièrement aller vider le cache. Et même parfois cela ne suffit pas et je dois systématiquement continuer à travailler sur chrome car je ne trouve pas la solution pour refresh mes modifs sur firefox. Volontiers un petit tips qui pourrait résoudre mon problème.. ? Merci et bonne journée.
