I am using Hotdocs portal, which is an in-house document assembly tool. Firefox is the recommended browser, but it is recently handling 2016 docx files incorrectly. When we choose a file on the portal site (internal site), we go through the interview and are presented with a link to "download" the assembled file. When you click that link, a pop-up appears showing the file name as abc.docx but then says it is a Word 97 - 2003 document, even though it is not. The original template is not. If I choose to open the file, it ends up opening and showing as abc.docx.doc If I save the file, instead of opening it, it saves as abc.docx.

If we run this same process in IE/Edge, the file opens as abc.docx as it should. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Is there anything that could be causing this? I've tried a bunch of troubleshooting steps and nothing seems to change this outcome.

Thank you.

I found a folder in my trash bin named "Recovery files" with files titled "(A Document Being Saved By FirefoxCP 120)".

I did not move this file in the trash. It's 09.14.18 today; looking into the folder, I noticed that it began saving files starting at 09.09.18.

Can someone explain what's happening?

I just installed Firefox 63.0 and discovered that the leading (inter-line space) between Bookmarks items has been increased.

Was this intentional? I find it an annoyance because I now have to scroll down more to see lists that easily fit on the screen vertically before. And the change adds nothing to readability.

Hey Guys and Gals,

I have a website problem with Firefox in Windows 10 Home 64bit oem.

I am trying to get to Cyberlink.com and I get error . I also get error if I try using Chrome. Attached at 2 screenshots, 1 FF and 1 Chrome.

I cant access the site using either browser in wiindows 10.

Microsoft Edge accesses it fine thou. Also I have a Linux virtual OS on my system and I can access Cyberlink.com using firefox in it.

I thought maybe it was my system but it also happened on 2 other computer running Windows 7. But to be on safeside I ran Windows 10 troubleshooter and no problems were found. I ran SFC /scannow from Elevated CMD prompt and it found no errors. I than ran a DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth and it found no problems.

Anyone else have an issue accessing Cyberlink.com (cyberlink dot com) just in case links are blocked?

And how would I fix the issue if it is only my system?

Please let me know. Thanks in advance Gren

Firefox hangs when I open a new tab or new webpage. It's really annoying!

Everytime I do the automatic updates this shit happens. I used to go to one of the articles where it gave me instructions on how to reset my preferences, but that thread has since been modified, it now says to delete my pref.js, but that doesn't fix the issue anymore.

So i'm resorting to actually making a god damn account and asking why this shit keeps happening. I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed aswell, but it saved some of my data which I kinda need (bookmarks). That doesn't help.

I know that resetting my preferences back to default every update used to fix it, but I forget how now. Thanks...

Can someone just tell me how to fix it so I can update without having to do all this shit again.

I have only one extension and that is adblockerplus. Not likely the cause as it does this aswell without.

Dear Firefox,

Since the most recent update I am experiencing problems in being able to save pictures. I find an image in Google Image Search, click on it and go to save .... however it does not save. The process even prompts me to select the folder I want it saved in, the name I want to give the file and so on. I do all of these things - but there is no picture there when I go to the folder. I have tried saving to different folders but no luck. This does not happen in all cases, only on some pictures.

I find the only way i can save the picture is to click on View Image and then prompt it to save. However as my work involves finding lots of images online, this is adding several steps to the process. It is also annoying when I have to save 50+ pictures and then go back and find that maybe half-a-dozen or so are not there

Dear Community,

I recently switched back to FF from chrome and I really love it. There is one thing I cannot get to work though: I would like to have google as default search engine but without country redirect. In Chrome this is done by using https://www.google.com/search?q=%s&pws=0&gl=us&gws_rd=cr as search engine. What is the equivalent in FF?

Thanks in advance!

I'm experiencing a long-lived bug, or more possibly file corruption, that became important very recently. Due to another bug in Firefox 65 (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1249037), I need to change cookie permissions. In the preference panel under "Cookies and Site Data", the "Manage Permissions" button doesn't work, although being not gray. After clicking this button, the expected window is not shown visibly. However invisible window still blocks keyboard and mouse input to the original firefox window. Clicking away from the center of the screen or Esc would disengage and possibly close the invisible window. The consequence is that I can't see or change permissions from this window. I have been having this problem for several firefox updates so it's more like a corrupted file. Despite that, cookie permissions still function properly and can be updated through the icon on the address bar.

Although there are workarounds such as through the icon on the address bar, this is really inconvenient and makes it hardly possible to edit cross site or cross subdomain cookie permissions. How do I figure out what is wrong and correct it please? I'm using Ubuntu 18.04.

I use Firefox v66.0.2 on Windows 10 Pro and on my weather website that has Flash links to external sites to display the Moon's phase and World City Times the placeholders to populate that info has become very slow indeed. It can take well over 40 seconds to show the times.

Using the same version of Firefox on a Windows 7 64-bit PC the data displays in seconds. Using Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 it's also very quick. Only Firefox / Windows 10 seems to be the problem.

I have tried resetting things but to no avail. It's been like this for a couple of months now. My website has been unchanged in years. http://www.cheadlehulmeweather.co.uk
