The page at https://www.meetup.com/Silicon-Drinkabout-Cambridge/ looks normal except that all the events say "needs a location" although they have a location assigned. If I click on any of them it just says "502 bad gateway". The site works fine in Microsoft Edge.

I had to add Javascript because one of my accounts need Javascript to open. After installing Javascript and allowing for all to be 'true', I still get this message when I try to open a 'show blocked content' in my email.

"The address wasn’t understood

Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (javascript) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

   You might need to install other software to open this address."

I never had any problem before installing Javascript. Thanks for any solutions.

My firefox is hijacked by bing, once I search something with google, it automatically jumps to bing and I have no idea how to remove it. Tried different solutions, anti virus, clean extension, reset...you name it. However, it is never fixed.

I need to know how to stop firefox from automatically downloading every PDF file I look at. I’ve tried all of the suggested fixes on Mozilla and various other sites to no avail. None of them work. I’ve tried the following:

Going into settings, downloads, and checking “Always ask you where to save files.” Didn’t work.

Going into settings, applications, and under PDF, choosing “always ask.” Didn’t work.

Going into settings, applications, and under PDF, choosing “open in firefox.” Didn’t work.

Going into about:config and changing browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel from true to false. Didn’t work

None of these fixes stopped firefox from automatically downloading pdf files. I can’t just click on a pdf file to look at it without firefox downloading it.

I’m at wit’s end. My recylcle bin is full of unwanted pdf files.

Please give me a solution that actually works. My version is 105.0.3.

Firefox will not download anything from any website. Any time I try to access pdf, jpeg or what ever all I get is "download failed". I always need to resort to Edge to get it, ready to be done with Firefox. Any suggestions for someone who is only mildly technical? I have tried opening in Firefox and Adobe, tried saving instead, nothing works

The problem is that I ve seen many times a word being mispelled due to original's author mistake. Especially in other languages. Is there any base that feedback can be given and taken care in the next update? Many dictionaries work on that base, like WordPress Plugin translation tool.

Firefox 105.0b2

I suppose the other question is why did you add them? There are already three places I can get at that information.

Hello, I'm currently running firefox developer edition and i'm facing a weird bug: When firefox is started, opening a web url from outside of firefox window does'nt work and display error message: "Firefox is already running but is not responding...". It expects that i close all instance of firefox instead of just opening url in a new tab.

Do you have any idea?

I'm working on version 105.0b2 with two profiles on an ubuntu 22

[See uploaded image]

I don't know what this is, what it's called, or why the someone in your UI/UX team continues to think that it's a good idea to change the keyboard navigation in the browser with all these new, special, or whatever controls that are ultimately useless.

How do I turn this off?

When I go into Firefox & I bring up my bank for example if I go to another tab to bring up something else most times it won't do it. So then I have to shut it down & open it up again which is intensly annoying. This never used to happen say a year ago.
