Morning, every time when I click on a link on a website which should open a pdf document, firefox start opening several (infinite) new tabs with the document. Even if I close Firefox completely the process will continue if i open Firefox again. This can only be stopped when I smash the Strg+W Puttons to close all the Tabs faster then they are opening.

I hope someone can help me with this. It is really annoying when it happens.

Thanks and best regards.

I've downloaded he Mozilla Containers add-on, however it's missing from the top right. It is enabled and I've tried reinstalling it, but nothing works. I will say that when I go to 'options' I see, "An extension, Firefox Multi-Account Containers, requires Container Tabs."

Edit: I did try pressing cntrl+. to use the shortcut, but that didn't work either.

The website https://www.finanznachrichten.de collects financial news from publishers all over the world. Some news are just a link to the publisher's website - this works still fine. Some news can be read directly on the webpage fully. But some articles are NOT displayed fully - only the beginning of the text is displayed followed by a link "Den vollständigenArtikel lesen...." (in english: "Read the full article..." ) This link leads to the full article on the publisher's website. My problem is: This link is NOT DISPLAYED anymore in firefox in all news of this kind on this website. But is was normally displayed in older versions of firefox. By the way: the webmaster of finanznachrichten.de wrote that THEY didn't apply any changes!!!

I just update firefox each time a new release comes up and I always keep all settings as they were before. In other browsers (IE for example) it is ALSO still displayed!!! So my idea is that a setting in firefox prevents those links from being displayed(?) Is that possible and if yes: Which settings do affect the displaying of web-links? (ad block is not the reason by the way - I verfified that) Here an example news: https://www.finanznachrichten.de/nachrichten-2020-04/49525168-nestle-aktie-ein-klarer-gewinner-503.htm Below the text other browsers display the mentioned full-article-link but firefox doesn't anymore. Any idea in the community?

Hello,

Following the Firefox 76.1 update, all my folders are no longer displayed, the Fishing folder is missing.

Between each folder, I inserted separators for a better readability.

I can add it by dragging and dropping via the bookmarks to the personal bar, but it disappears after restarting Firefox.

Thank you for your support Greetings

I think my Firefox updated, and now there is a feature where any "insecure" sites now have all the media blocked on it. When I click "Disable protection for now," it does nothing and I have no way to unblock any of it. I am literally just trying to read the TF2 comics, which I know are on a safe website (and even if they weren't, I have antivirus software that protects my computer just fine), but because of this "mixed content" block I literally can't see anything but a white page. I've searched settings for a way to permanently disable this protection, but I haven't found anything.

Hello- Please clarify the article "Multi-Account Containers" https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/containers#w_open-links-in-new-tabs-and-containers . Number 4 in the section "What you can do with Multi-Account Containers" says that you can "Assign a website to a container, so that a specific website will always open in a specific container." The article doesn't describe how, and it's not obvious to me. Please describe specifically how to do this. Thanks!

I'm a paid subscriber of ActiveInbox and had been using the Firefox plugin. Unfortunately it has been out of commission for over a year. On their support forums they've commented that after a substantial rewrite of the plugin, things got bogged down within Mozilla's review process. It has been stalled ever since. I just asked for a status update on that thread and was told "there is no change in the way Firefox process updates" and nothing is happening right now. As a paid subscriber, I'm just trying to get something more definitive as to the status of their plugin as I need to decide whether or not to continue to pay for the service. I greatly appreciate any information.

Hello,

I would like to allow a select set of websites to save cookies. It would be nice if the data for these sites is saved when history is cleared when I close the browser. After browsing a number of help articles, it is not clear to me that Firefox supports the capability.

Am I missing something? Any help to configure my browser to selectively save data (cookies) and clear all other junk is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance for all your help.

In my Windows 10 Version of Firefox, when ever I set my HISTORY to 'Never Remember', the option to 'Ask to save logins and passwords for websites' is greyed out.

I do not think this combination is correct, as I want set my Firefox to 'Never' remember History but at the same I do want the option that If I do setup my user-id & Password on a new website, I want Firefox to prompt me to Save or Remember Password.

On the same token, If a password is changed Firefox must prompt that password is updated in Firefox. This will not be prompted if I set my HISTORY to 'Never Remember'.

The Image I am sharing is my current settings, I did not want reset it, as I then have to reload Firefox, re-do a lot of thinks, like Booksmarks etc.

My installed Firefox version is 76.0.1 (64-bit).

If there is work around let me know the solution. Hope to hear soon.
