now i'm writing the download pdf file function to support ios device. But for iPhone/iPad, after I click download and call the download function, the page will be directed to a messey code page. I will attach the screenshot in attachment.

But for desktop and android, all browsers works fine. Only the ios firefox is having this issue.

some of the javascript code are here:

     const blob = new Blob([downloadFileBolb], { type: 'application/octet-stream' });
     if (window.navigator.msSaveBlob) { // For IE only
       window.navigator.msSaveOrOpenBlob(blob, 'file name')
     } else {
       const url = (window.URL || window.webkitURL).createObjectURL(blob);
       const tempLink = document.createElement('a');
       tempLink.style.display = 'none';
       tempLink.href = url;
       tempLink.download = 'file name';
       tempLink.target = '_blank';
       document.body.appendChild(tempLink);
       tempLink.click();
       setTimeout(() => {
         (window.URL || window.webkitURL).revokeObjectURL(url);

Hi there,

I'm currently running macOS 10.15.6 and Firefox 80.0.1.

I've not been able to get the Home and End keys on my keyboard to jump to the beginning and end of the URL inside the address bar for a while now. I know on macOS I can hit command+left and command+right to achieve the same behaviour. But so many sites (not this one; but Google Docs, reddit, etc) support the Home and End key behaviours.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to report bugs / feature requests, but maybe the community knows how I can even mimic this behaviour with extensions.

Thanks for reading!

Last night I had to re-install Firefox because I couldn't connect with internet

Since last night and up to now I've tried multiple solutions, however, the re-installed Firefox is not working as previously (just yesterday afternoon) - for example, on the left all my screens are partly hidden - also desktop doesn't show up, then search is not responding correctly and adding to the taskbar is practically as good as out of order. Unfortunately I've also detected that the re-installment come with demand of using - bing - which I do not use, as I'm very familiar with Firefox & Google which I've been using at least for over a decade an are very Happy with. However - bing - kept popping up, until finally today/afternoon the facility to dismiss - bing - suddenly & fanally was available so it got by-passed, although as much as possible, as it rears its presence still somehow every now & then. On top of all this, I also don't have Desktop

TB 68.12.0 (64-bit), Win 10 build 18362

After, say, an hour of inactivity on my PC, when I go back to TB (which was open all the time) I want to click on a new email. But all clicks have no effect.

Solution: Move the TB window. After that, mouse clicks work as normal again.

I have never seen this behavior with any other program.

This has happened already some 10 times.

With Firefox 80.0.1 on macOS 10.13.6 attempting to use Firefox->Services->New TextEdit Window Containing Selection on a bit of selected text in a web page consistently returns the error: "Service failed. Couldn’t open the selection. There might be an internal error or a performance problem, or the source application may be providing text of invalid type in the service request. Please try the operation a second time. If that doesn’t work, copy/paste the selection into TextEdit."

This works in Safari and Chrome, so I am confused and frustrated that it does not seem to work in Firefox.

Could this be a bug in Firefox? Unfortunately, I don't know how to read or wrote computer code. All I know is that this doesn't work for me.

You can see in the picture that it gets cut off.

As an aside: How do I keep the local links (that are in the webpage) in the PDF that Firefox generates?

I am seeing problems identical to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1273349

When I click a menu it briefly appears and then immediately disappears.

Turning on "Disable popup auto-hide" solves the issue, but this is a work around not a solution.

Restarting Firefox with a clean brand new profile resolves the problem. So it seems nothing to do with any of my plugins.

But after I click on a link from within emacs, the first time I open a menu it is fine. Then the 2nd time I try to open a menu it disappears immediately. There might be other conditions that do this also, but this is the most reliable way I have found to date.

I believe emacs is calling firefox, by default, using "xdg-open". If I manually use this command from a command prompt to open a web page. It works fine. Huh???

I changed emacs to explicitly invoke Firefox. At first this seemed to have solved this problem. But now it has come back again.

This has been ongoing for some time, over a large range of Firefox versions. Currently I can reproduce with 68.11.0 ESR and 80.0.1

Sometimes I have done something and I think I have magically resolved the issue, but then it comes back again.

This is currently Debian/buster and Debian/bullseye using the i3 window manager. In the past I have also had the same issue with Debian/stretch. I have multiple monitors. I doubt any of this is relevant, but just in case.

Unlike the previous referenced post I have not been able to reproduce this under OSX. Although I don't often click links from emacs either. So wonder if that is significant.

Hi all. Mozilla Firefox is very slow on my Linux Laptop with the Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565/AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter (with open-source driver ath9k). It takes a lot of time to resolve hosts and to load the webpages.

I am reporting the issue here because Chromium and the rest of web explorers work good and they are as fast as one may expect. When using Windows 10 with the same laptop, Firefox also has no issues and works perfectly well. It appears to be an issue of the combination of Firefox + this specific driver & network adapter.

Used Manjaro, Ubuntu 16, Ubuntu 20 with a lot of kernels ranging from 4.15 to 5.8 and the issue persists and does not seem to be tied to any specific distribution.

I can do some tests if you require so.
