We have a WordPress website that has a direct menu link to a PDF file. The PDF has links at the top that transport the user to a particular section in the document. On Chrome it looks fine, but on FireFox, there are thick, ugly borders around each link. I've tried to change the border with CSS using .linkAnnotation, but it never works. I have found that for an individual browser, you can change the userContent.css, but we'd like to change the appear of the PDF for all users. How do we do this?

I've attached an image of the PDF but I've whited-out the text.

Missing device in synchonized device list to transfer tabs

I have two computers: one personal (HP), one from my work (MBP). I quit my job a few weeks back but still had my MBP in case they needed something. I continued to use it and I had to return it back yesterday.

I synchronized my tabs using Firefox Sync on the MBP and could see them well on my HP. I formatted the MBP and returned it, without disconnecting my Firefox account. I got back home and tried this morning to load on my HP the tabs I had on my MBP, but it is not listed anymore. (Surprisingly, some other device I didn't touch for 2 or 3 weeks is still listed, even though it's not connected.) I tried on another device to connect my Firefo account, thinking it would propose me to open a session have somewhere else, but the MBP session isn't listed there either.

I can't lose all the researches I made during the last few weeks :S I turned my side project into a full time job, I need them.

Is there any way to retrieve somehow the tabs I had open on the MBP? Is there a way to get from the Sync server any copy they have for my devices? Does Firefox writes to disk what it gets when listing the data of synchronized devices, so I could try to look into the deleted files on my disk?

Help or ideas much appreciated!

I am currently using two separate profiles for Firefox browser - one personal and one for work. I have both open at all times on one machine. When I click on a link from Slack (for work), it always opens in my personal Firefox browser which it usually cannot open since I need to be logged into my work account.

How do I set it up so that the link will open in the profile that was most recently used vs the default profile?

I've gone through the steps to save logins and passwords (settings, privacy, remember logins is checked) and I've made sure that Form History, Cookies & active logins, Cache, and Site Settings are not cleared on exit. Firefox will still not remember logins or passwords. I would also like it to ask if it should be saved or not. Is this possible. I'm running Firefox on an Android Samsung A20.

After a full review of all Mozilla's addon troubleshooting pages, the addons I use everyday either don't appear upon my use of a mouse right click or don't work when clicking on them in the browser's header bar, and I haven't downloaded the new Firefox version for GREAT fear of AGAIN loosing ALL of my addons for the second time. And not being able to use my lost addons have crippled my production, because their replacement have not been nearly as good.

To remove an addon was easy, but reinstalling it won't fully engage even when the page popped up and gave me the option to install it. It's just spinning.

I imagine we're not talking about a sudden incompatability without an upgrade. Your help is welcome.

I just started getting a lot of A2HS notifications today (29/05/2020) on my Firefox Nightly on Android, in a few websites a get one per page I visit, it is too much! Is there any way to block A2HS notifications from certain website (or even all of them)? I feel this overuse of A2HS will definitely lead to people deeply disliking the feature, specially due to websites that blast them every page you load, there should be a limitation or a way to block new requests from the same website.

As the subject says, my print dialog shows on the wrong monitor. Usually with other apps you can bring the program to the correct monitor and close it there then it opens there as well. I move FF around from time to time but my main monitor gets the most use. To test this weird issue, I moved FF to the second monitor and tried printing there, the dialog shows up on my main LOL. What causes the print dialog to show up on the wrong screen, or even why does it always choose another screen other than the one FF is being displayed on? Is there a setting or option to correct this? The reason this is problematic is I don't always turn on the second on, so if i want to print a receipt or something I have to turn on the second monitor(which for me takes a bit, first the main blanks out then second turns on then first "catches up"). I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

Greetings everyone,

I was using Firefox for iOS for my iPad earlier and I accidentally clicked on a link on a website that asked me if it was okay for me to accept cookies. I was feeling so fatigued that I clicked "yes" without thinking. I'm 99% sure it was a question about cookies on a website.

How can I undo this?

I'm just worried that the website now has access to my iPad and can extract personal information from my iPad.

Thank you for any advice!

Like any privacy-conscious person, I do not want websites gaining access to my clipboard. I thought I had taken the necessary precautions, by setting the following preferences:

dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled => FALSE

clipboard.plainTextOnly => TRUE

Today, however, while writing in an online text box, I hit Ctrl+V and was horrified to see a very personal image inserted into the text box! (The image just happened to be in the clipboard.)

What is going on here? How could this possibly happen? Can sites still access my clipboard?

Thunderbird hangs up every few seconds. It seems it hands up when it opens a folder, when it send an email, when it logins to an account and probably during numerous other actions.

Why has no one fixed this? It is not logical to hang whenever it does something in the background.

I don't even remember what password I used back then and the account is deleted, so I can't log in anymore. Is there anything I should be concerned about?

Since moving to Ubuntu 20.04 and Thunderbird 68.7.0 I am encountering a problem where the selected email loses focus.

The problem is thus:

  • I select an email within a list of emails displayed (inbox etc.).
  • It briefly changes colour showing it has been inspected.
  • Within a second or so it changes to grey showing that it is no longer selected.
  • If I then reselect the email in question, it now remains selected.

Whilst this is not the end of the world it is incredibly irritating when going through emails. Selecting an email to take an action upon (e.g. to delete it via the delete key) only to find it deselected and the action not implemented.

When I signed onto my e-mail account I've lost all my folders, in excess of 50 with items in each, from the last 6 years and all my e-mails older than April 2020. It has also put all my old deleted e-mails back into my deleted folder from the last 6 years totalling in excess of 7,000. Can anyone let me know how to restore the account, it was okay one day, then the next had completely changed. I'm not computor literate so would need quite basic detailed instructions if you could help.
