When i try to look at an image on firefox in it's own tab so i can see it bigger, it instead opts to download it instead of just showing it in the tab itself. This is annoying as I don't want to have to make a whole folder just for images that i've seen once and then never look at again. is there an option i might have chosen at some point that enables this? i'm not too sure. please help if someone is able to.

I seem to have a 'bug' being introduced through firefox when I view youtube videos. it does not happen right away, it takes a few videos to happen. The partial solution I have found so far (having done this twice so far in almost as many days, and about to do it a second in one day.) is to do a complete uninstall of firefox, then do a windows defender offline scan (which seems to knock out whatever is left in the machine, it won't tell me what was found.) then to come back into win10 and doing a clean install which seems to work well enough (having multiple tabs open [I do miss being able to have large numbers of open tabs and not having my machine going nuts]) till I break down and check the youtube channels that I like to keep up with. main noticeable symptom is my machines cooling fan going into 'hyper' drive, then checking task manager and finding firefox using almost two gigs of memory and 40+% of cpu capacity. As I type this, with just one tab open, firefox is showing 563.3 MB and seven (7) sub? programs running. Before this latest flair up, for one tab open it would be under 400MB and five programs running?

Add-ons I run on Firefox: uBlock Origin, Adblock Plus, and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials

My system: AMD A9-9425 RadeonR5,5 Compute Cores 2C+3G 3,10GHz

                   8GB of ram 7.45 usable

Another problem, language switching doesn't work in new tabs as well. I have bound it on ctrl + shift, and when I press this combination, nothing happens.

I have three browsers on my Dell Latitude E 6320 Windows 10 operating system namely Edge, Firefox and Google Chrome. Firefox is my favorite browser among the three which has been working normally untill a fews ago I decided to make Firefox as my default browser.

Of recent when I click on the Firefox Icon to surf the internet, a small window appears making reference to drive C:\windows\system32\......... with something like .dll at the end of the path and some statements which disappear before I can completely read the contents of the small window. As the small window disappears, Firefox launches up and remained launched with nothing else happening. Even when I type Firefox address in the address bar and press the enter key, nothing happens. The text message "Hand shake" with any site address typed into the address bar that is usually displayed at the lower left handside of Firefox page before the required website is connected and displayed, is no longer been displayed. I have uninstalled the 79 version and reinstalled the same version which I have just downloaded for resolving the problem, thinking that the uninstalled one has been corrupted, but the problem still remains.

This is the problem I am experiencing with Firefox browser presently hence I am asking for assistance of how to solve this problem from the community.

Thank you and for looking forward to your response.

Not a big deal, but it's clearly new in the last week? or so: Here's a webpage with lots of forum links on it: https://www.bogleheads.org/index.php Clink a link, takes you to that post's thread. Then go back to first page (click left arrow, or type alt-<) and there are all the same links you first saw, BUT the one you just visited would normally have changed to indicated it's now a visited link (my default scheme is blue to purple). The "PROBLEM" is (like I said, not huge) that now the link is NOT changing to purple, it stays blue. If I click within a blank space within the the page, sometimes that makes the color change happen, but sometimes not. There's some sort of "refresh" that's not taking place (reliably) like it used to. Going to the same link a 2nd time and then back seems invariably to change that link's color.

Like I said, it's NOT a big issue, but it IS real, and it's NEW! That's all.

Is anyone else getting this sudden downloads of EDGE browser from Microsoft for Windows 10? I got some big July 2020 Cumulative Updates, Security Updates, etc. last week and installed them. They also installed something for EDGE which was a window that would not close and was forcing me to go through a bunch of windows and fill out "activation" info. I finally opened Windows Task Manager and ended the task to shut it down. I then tried to uninstall it but more installation was being forced onto my laptop. Finally after a few days the uninstall button was highlighted in the list of "apps" and I was able to uninstall it. Today I got an update on my malware protection software subscription from a different company. It restarted my laptop, which was fine, however it brought an install yet again of EDGE, but I use Mozilla Firefox faithfully and have for years. Big fan of Mozilla and I donate every year and try to participate in surveys and all that. I have Firefox in my Windows 10 settings as my default browser. Nonetheless it keeps being foisting on me. I don't know how to reach Mozilla but I suspicion I am not the only one highly annoyed by this aggressive repeat downloading stuff. What I thought I could do is start a thread in the Mozilla Community and see if enough other people are upset. Perhaps Mozilla can do something with Microsoft about this. I would think Google's Chrome users are also upset by this. It is annoying the hell out of me because it just takes over my laptop and I can't get into my Start Menu or anything else because it is forcing me to activate it. I will also be complaining to Microsoft for whatever good that does and looking at forums to see if there is any backlash from other users.

I have a dual monitor setup with one monitor above my laptop screen. After I play a fullscreen video in Firefox on the top display there will be a one pixel segment of the Firefox window showing at the top of the laptop display whenever the Firefox window has focus and is maximised on the top display.

The way to make it disappear is to close and relaunch Firefox.

Troubleshooting so far: 1) I have tried fullscreen with different video sites and had the same issue. 2) I have tried with another browser (Edge) and didn't have the same issue.
