Open Link In New Tab - PDF Files

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

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!

I've been using U block origin for quite a while and have been pleased with it's performance until today. For some reason it's not blocking an ad that it previously blocked in AOL in box screen. I tried to add the element but it didn't work, although, I'm not sure if I was doing it correctly. I was able to block the ad content but not the blank ad space bar. See attached screen shot.I would appreciate it if someone would would review the procedure to block an ad. Thanks

I love having OneTab, but suddenly both the icon that creates a list from my open tab (usually on the R side of the toolbar) and the icon that opens my lists (usually on the L) are both gone. OneTab is still listed as an enabled add-on, and I've deleted and re-installed it multiple times, but the icons don't show up. I was once able to find "OneTab" on my add-ons list via the "hamburger" (not sure what to call it -- the three horizontal lines at the end of the toolbar), but it was the word only, no icon, and when I dragged it to the toolbar, nothing showed up. I LOVED using OneTab, and I miss it! How can I get it to show up?

The scroll bar on the right of my screen disappears when I sign in to "The Guardian". This started within the last week. It works OK when I sign in to my other on line subscriptions (NY Times and Washington Post) and all other places I access. It works OK when I do a "Safe Mode" load of Firefox. I have explored the few Add-ons and Custom Settings but have not been able to determine the cause. I am having this problem on any of 4 different computers currently running Firefox 81.0 and Windows 10. Microsoft Edge is working OK if I use it.

Any help would be appreciated.

New to FireFox and have a quick question. In Safari, there is an option to have a new window or tab open to the same page you are currently in. I see in the preferences how to make a new window or tab open to a specific URL or a blank page, but I want neither. I want a new window/tab to mimic exactly what I have in the current window when I open that new tab/window. How can I do this?

Thanks!

I think adding a pdf editing tool [like the one built into microsoft edge] to firefox would be a very nice introduction because it will make it easier to manage this type of documents without having to look for dodgy add-ons or sketchy websites, or even it will make unnecesary download specific apps to edit the file, and generally that is a paid option (i'm looking at you adobe). So please devs, if you make it possible, i´m sure the community will love this feature

I am having a problem with Dark Mode in Firefox, in particular Google Search Images. I am using Windows 10 version 2004 and Firefox 81.0 using Default Add-on. I have also enabled the Dark and Light Add-ons; same problem.

If I run a Google Search for <Images>, the thumbnail images may not show depending on the setting. I cannot get the thumbnails to show with a dark background. They are downloaded because if I switch to Windows App Light setting they do show. If I select one of the 'blank' images in Google Search, the image appears to the right. The problem only appears to be affecting Google Search Images. Other web sites seem ok at this stage.

The Windows App Dark/Light Mode setting has no effect on the Google Search page. It seems to be fully controlled by Firefox. I attach three images from Google Search with a summary of the Options\Colours tab for each:

Image 1. White text on black; override Always Image 2. Use System Colours; override Always Image 3. Use System Colours or not; override Never

If you need any more information, please ask.

Thanks

Graham

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?
