Firefox just updated, without my permission, which is another problem. But now when i try to open pdf files, firefox always ask what to do. In Options > General > Appliacations i set pdf files to open with firefox, but firefox still asks what to do. In the window where it asks what to do, there is a tick box saying "Do this automatically from now on", even if i choose that option it still ends up asking what to do the next time i open a pdf file.

In Options, the following selection item is included under General>>>Tabs:

"When you open a link in a new tab, switch to it immediately"

Although it has worked well in the past, selection of that option no longer seems to have an effect on new tab behavior. New tabs are thrust into the foreground regardless of whether or not the option is selected in Options.

Is this a flaw in the latest update to Firefox? Will it be corrected soon?

Hello everyone, I'm working on customizing the Firefox experience for users within my organization.

I have to really limit their access. One of those requests were to prevent users from minimizing their active Firefox window.

I've found articles like the one below that show how to hide all the buttons: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/906698

However it does not suit the purpose. since it removes all of them and only on full screen.

Is there a way I can just hide the minimize button so that the user can just hide the minimize button?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Mozilla, please implement an "Open-Tab-Next-To-Current"-functionality. A bit better than in the Addon "Open Tab Next To Current". Because the newly created tab opens at the end and "runs" back to the place i want it.

i really want that feature. since so many years, mozilla team has done a great job but didn't implement an option or enable and disable opening tabs next to current.

So if I try to open a .tg link to a Telegram group I want to join I get a message box asking me what application I want to open the link with. I want to change it from the current one and select Telegram as an app that I've installed from the Microsoft Store, but that doesn't appear on the list when you click browse because it's not a normally installed program in Windows. Is there a way to get access to apps installed through Microsoft Store in order to set them as default apps to open certain links/file extensions through Firefox?

I just installed Firefox and found that the browser looks washed out compared to other browsers - Safari, Chromium, Vivaldi, Opera and Brave. The whole things - the browser itself and the web content. Here is an example of my Adguard Home page. Firefox on the left, Chromium on the right. Im using an Apple Mac Mini M1 and the Firefox version is 86.0.1 running the ARM 64 (universal) version. Is there anything I can do? I have tried the old trick of diabling hardware acceleration and it makes no difference whatsoever.

We have a new add-on of our own that we were trying to add to the Firefox browser. This add-on was tested locally and worked fine. However, upon trying to install the official add-on to the browser, it is throwing the following error, "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt".

The add-on in question is, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/searchgiggle-search/

Any suggestions to address this issue would be appreciated.

I also noticed another post or two about the same topic. As per those posts, the issue got resolved automatically after some time. Can I expect the same?

Hello. In any firefox windows, the glitch (see attached images) is present, Any time i mouse over an interactive elelment, all of the speckles change position, and sometimes color. they look to be very random, sometimes being absent from a large part of the page, and other times being very thick throughout it's entirety. the only way i have found fix it is by downgrading version, however i still would like to know if there is a solution for fixing this version. in chromium browser, this glitch isn't present, it also only, in the past, displayed on pdfs, and some iframes (HTML term for embedded websites in windows), but now it covers the whole page, it isn't unusable but sometimes is hard to look at. This glitch has been present for at least a week (current date is march 1st) but definitely longer. Thanks.

My wife has both Firefox 86.0 NS Firefox 86.0.1 installed on her computer. She continues to experience tab crashes and other problems when playing casino games on Facebook. I don't know if the fact that 2 versions are installed is causing the problems, but I only have 86.0.1 on my computer and don't have any problems. The problem is, I tried to remove 86.0, but it will only allow me to refresh. The same is true for 86.0.1. Does she need to get rid of 86.0 and how can she do it? Thanks for any help you can give me.

Hello,

recently I moved a website to the "Block Popups from this site" list.

Now I only have the option to generally block all pop-ups or to allow them in general.

Is there any way to get that yellow bar back, telling me, that something has blocked and allows me to select which Popup is to be allowed and which is declined?

Thank you!

I have selected the option "Restore previous session". Normally, it works fine, but if the last Firefox window closed before was in private mode, it doesn't - instead I get the last sessions of this private window. I'm not quite sure, but I think this behavior was different (= Firefox restores always the tabs from the last non-private window) before one of the last updates.

When viewing gmail with my personal account, Firefox is crashing after it loads the conversations in the sidebar.

I have tried resetting, using a private window, and running in Safe Mode

Here is the crash report Id: bp-b36c8ee9-37cb-4dec-9380-2f6320210228

I can repeat this at will. I will try disabling the conversations bar using another browser and then update to see if that helps (it's not crashing when I view my work gmail).

Thanks for your help ;-)

This has been going for a couple of days.

I have tried starting in safe mode, didn't help.

I have tried disabling JavaScript, didn't help.

Two "main sites" affected, Feedly and Gmail. Feedly had this problem but it disappeared after a while. Now Gmail is having problems. I can move around and read mails but not respond to them.

Other sites affected "seems" to have in common that they are blog-type, perhaps like WordPress or similar.

I have a Windows 10 computer with the same browser setup and there have been no problems there so far.

The version is 86.0.1 (64-bit).

I'm not technically advanced so please be gentle with me.
