Hi, PDF File handling has recently changed - For the worse for me and it's become really frustrating.

When I right click a PDF file link and select "open link in new tab", why does Firefox then ask me how I want to treat the file? I just asked it to open the file in a new tab, so it should be obvious what I want to do - asking again is illogical.

Not only that, before the file handling dialog box, it opens a new tab next to the tab I'm in and then closes it when the dialog box appears - When I select the unnecessary "open in Firefox" (I just asked it to open in a new tab), it now creates a new tab at the END of my tabs and steals focus.

I also get the file handling dialog box when I ask to "save link as", when logically I should just get the save location dialog box.

How do I get the old behaviour back?

Thanks folks

I am unable to display my username when trying to log into 'Udemy' website. Under Logins & Passwords my Username and Password is saved for this site. When I click login button, the username appears momentarily and then disappears from the login screen. I have to manually type the username each time. However, the password is retained and no issues there.

Could not find any help articles on this particular problem. Tried unclicking hardware acceleration. Still no change.

Other websites appear to function properly except 'udemy'. Is this due to settings in FireFox or something not right with 'udemy' website?

FF75: Disable urlbar expansion

Is there a preference to disable the expansion of the urlbar (aka address bar, awesome bar, mega bar) without disabling its new features? When expanded, it covers part of my bookmarks bar and makes it harder to click the bookmarks. Also I dislike the chunky UI look.

Things I've tried that did not solve my problem:

  • browser.urlbar.megabar: This is gone in 75.0.
  • browser.urlbar.update1: This disables the expansion, but also disables the new icons, suggestions, etc.
  • browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus: I don't know what this does but it wasn't it.
  • ui.prefersReducedMotion: This disables the animation, but the bar is still expanded.
  • Search with the Firefox address bar: There is no information there about the expansion.

I'm hoping there is a browser.urlbar.update1.expand or similar that I can toggle off. If there definitely isn't, please confirm so I can submit a bug.

Hi all

I recently refreshed my Firebox browser and I can now no longer use McAfee WebAdvisor.

Really frustrated by this - I browse a lot for work and research. I find the WebAdvisor reassuring to have on-hand.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling WebAdvisor but it still does not show. I tried searching for it through the add-ons menu and it still does not appear.

I reached out to McAfee who told me that Mozilla no longer allows McAfee WebAdvisor on Firefox.

Is this actually, seriously the case? I'll be disappointed if so - Firefox is my preferred browser but I'll have to ditch it for Chrome if I cannot use a safe-search advisor. And it should be up to user which safe-search add-on they wish to use, not Mozilla.

Can anyone advise on this?

Many thanks!

Hey there, awesomes! I'd like to change my Firefox pdf viewer's background color (both sides of the pdf) to dark, currently it shows light gray (see `background_bg.png`). And here is effect I want it to look like (see screenshot from Chrome `wished_bg.png`). Thanks in advance (:

PS: I don't want to change my theme to dark. It seems I have to change my css, but I dunno which & how.

I have tried every suggestion for blocking videos from autoplaying. I have tried Firefox's suggestions, and everything I found on the web, and nothing works. Autoplay happens every time on Fox. Why can't Mozilla get me a straight answer. I cannot be the only person in the world using Firefox, latest version, who has this problem. And, by the way, the way it seems to work is if you leave the video screen visible it does not Autoplay, but as soon as you scroll down to read the article, and thus the video image scrolls up and off the screen, then it starts to play. This isn't just some fluke and I suspect there is some code in the page HTML that does this. So, how the hell do I get it to stop?

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?

I'm trying to browse Reverb.com, and when I click on an item I want to look at, firefox opens in a new tab. This just started today after updating the Facebook Container add-on, and even after disabling the add on, the problem persists. I completely exited out of firefox and got back on, and Reverb is doing the same thing still. I don't want new tabs to keep opening every time I click on a new item, but to just take me to that page like normal.

I can't find anything in the options for firefox like keybinding or anything, and none of the other settings seem like they would address this issue.

Thanks for any and all help.
