Ubuntu 20.04 Firefox 79

When I open a new webpage and move my mouse to the right to the scrollbar to use scrollbar to move down the webpage, the scrollbar rushes to the bottom of the page. I find this awfully annoying. Is this a feature? Can I turn if off or stop it doing that. J

Starting yesterday, I can no longer download .pdf datasheets from the regular firms that I have been dealing with. When I click on the datasheet link, the page that I was on is returned, instead of the datasheet. I am using Windoz 7. Is this caused by changes in Firefox? Can this be fixed?

Thank you for your assistance in this matter. Johnski

Meetup.com site login will not work with latest versions of Firefox. Does anybody know why, or have a workaround. It works on other browsers like Chrome. In latest Firefox, I enter my valid username & Pwd, do the Capcha, and hit logon button - it just takes me back to the logon screen. In chrome, it enters the site as expected. I have cleared the cache & all cookies. Help.

When I try to load the sleepiq web site I get this: https://sleepiq.sleepnumber.com/#/ and a blue screen. When I load the same website from Chrome I get this: https://sleepiq.sleepnumber.com/#/dashboard/sleep, and the page loads. Safari is the same as Chrome, I get the information I'm looking for. As Firefox is my default browser I'd like to be able to fix this problem.

Hi, Why does firefox not restore sessions any more? I'm always either having updates or restarts that when I come back, there is no session restore. This has been going on for a few versions. Then it opens up with multiple pages, and straight away updates my session backups so I can't manually do it and my link is greyed out. I'm so sick and tired of firefox losing all my tabs.

Neither using Firefox options nor settings in Windows 10 lets me select Firefox as my default browser. Firefox does not appear as an option when picking a default browser. Is there a workaround for this? Firefox is on my computer and I always use it. I just can't make it the default. I keep being prompted to make it my default, but attempts are unsuccessful.

Just installed the update to v79 (64 bit) on Win 10 v2004 (64 bit). I when Firefox reopened, I went to YouTube to watch a video and play would not work. You get the "thumbnail" pic of video and then the screen goes black and an error message appears saying the video cannot be played. I turned off the Hardware Accelerator, rebooted, same issue. Restarted in Safe Mode, same issue. Updated all Plug-Ins and Extensions, same problem. I can play YouTube videos in Chrome and Edge without issues.

The new Android update has taken away the ability to auto complete forms on webpages that are filled in regularly.

The data is saved on the desktop version, I am logged into the same account and yet it will not complete or suggest a item to auto complete like it used to.

How do I get that feature back?

I am trying to have two accounts open in two different tabs for the same account (it's an investing account and a TFSA account from the same bank) but when I log into one account it logs me out of the other. Are there ways to keep account specific tabs somewhere in the user settings?

Thank you.

When I open Firefox it automatically opens Yahoo. On many occasions it opens up into a foreign language which is usually Spanish. All may settings are set for English everywhere! So why does this happen? If that is not bad enough, sometimes there is some kind of verification message that must be clicked on (choice of 2 boxes) Since I cannot read it I am not clicking on anything. I have to totally restart my computer to hopefully get things to work normally. I rarely have this problem with the the other browser...the one that comes with the computer. It did happen once.. Thanks..

Firefox has been good to me and i love it. Been using it as my primary web dev browser but it has increasingly been brought to my attention the need for better CSS Print media implementations. I would love to know how I can set the page to be printed in landscape orientation via CSS. Also is it possible to set page sizes via CSS?
