Somewhere, I clicked a box and I deeply regret it. Every since then every time I turn the computer off or it goes to sleep I have to login to Google and Microsoft apps. Logging in to the computer is fine, but any time I use google search I have to log into my google account. All day long I'm logging into my google account. the same with online microsoft apps; onedrive, word, onenote, etc. I used to have to log in to these things only after turning the computer off. Now it's a constant state of affairs. Help.

Unfortunately I just did a refresh to Firefox and even more unfortunately I had no idea that fixing a slow opening of Firefox would erase all my very valuable bookmarks that I really need! There should be warnings posted as to what a refresh will really do before being allowed to click on the refresh button.

I have tried following videos on you tube to restore my bookmarks, but they are hard to follow and I have had no luck with them. I need a step by step video process with audio instructions so I can retrieve said bookmarks!

Please, any help will be greatly appreciated !!! Thanks, D.

Since updating to 78.0 I cannot download pdf files from magazinelib.com. I can do so on Microsoft Edge and on Android, but not Firefox. I get the save/open/etc. popup; no matter which I click the file simply cycles and never downloads. Other sites seem unaffected. Example: https://psv4.userapi.com/c856436/u527052285/docs/d8/30d700e258ef/Classic_Boat_-_August_2020.pdf?extra=Yvnbe7eap0_wHynxixT-awIpguuucjYxj3XdvQ5_GicbCMyhb5V3RwSqD635Igkv6zb8Vxj1nYOfhKccAX8b-DwtFKKQ-GmSoYMEpu1-Afroli1umCG4JAcT5T8t5u5T_cp8Vo-vRbwhYQ

I'm using Firefox 78.0.2 on Manjaro Linux and on Windows 10. The same happens for both OS.

A few days ago (not at the latest update, but maybe the one before that?), the behaviour regarding PDF files changed.

Before: When clicking on a link to a PDF file, it was opened in Firefox. When I downloaded it and then clicked on the file in the "Downloads" section, the local, downloaded file was opened in my system's PDF viewer. After: After downloading, when I click on the file in the "Downloads" section, the local, downloaded file is opened in Firefox again.

The system default for opening PDF files has not changed, i.e., when I open a PDF file locally from the file system, it opens in the PDF viewer, and not in Firefox.

Changing how PDF files should be opened in "Settings - Content" does change the behaviour for both cases simultaneously. Is there any way to change this back to the old behaviour?

So let's say that I have a bookmark in my Firefox bookmarks sidebar with this as the 'Location': file:///E:/Name%20Of%20File.txt

If I were to click that bookmark, the contents of that text file will appear in the browser which allows me to read the contents of the file.

I want to be able to left-click that bookmark from the Firefox bookmarks sidebar or right-click it and select from a context menu and have that .txt file launch in a separate Notepad window, as in launching Notepad as an external application separate from Firefox.

Is that possible with some tweaking and hacking or whatever?

2 related problems. 1) Lately having difficulty playing vids on Twitter. Sometimes fine, other times they start, then reboot, repeatedly and won't play.

2) I used to see prompts on explore.org for 'pop cam', to create a new window of just the live-cam. This prompt no longer appears in FF. When I open the site in Vivaldi, it appears, as you can see in the screenshot I've attached. Eg., https://explore.org/livecams/africam/olifants-river

I have read through a number of FF articles, tried changing audio/visual permissions, cleared cache. No difference. I have way too many tabs open, though not loaded. I sincerely hope this isn't creating the problem, as my brain is very slow, it takes me a long time to complete things I've been researching. And until very recently, there were still many tabs, without my current problems.

Thanks for your help.

As of about a week ago I have been unable to connect to https://weather.com using Firefox 78.0.1 64bit on Windows 10 Pro. As far as I have found in my regular browsing this is the only website with this problem; other websites open properly. The problem with https://weather.com occurs no matter how I try to connect - selecting a bookmark that worked in the past or typing directly in the address bar. If I am using an empty blank window what I see is a window that remains blank. The name that I typed in shows in the address bar but there is no padlock icon and no trackers shield. I am attaching a screen shot.

If I open Firefox in a private window I AM able to connect to https://weather.com as I could before in the ordinary window. I am also able to connect to https://weather.com using other browsers.

Any suggestions as to what has happened and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated!

Hello,

Last night I went to bed and all my bookmarks were there. Today I woke up and all the bookmarks are gone on my laptop and the open tabs, add-ons etc. I am signed in. Restoration does not help (last backup is with today date). But on my smartphone I see them in bookmarks-> desktop bookmarks. How do I save them? I really don´t want to lose them.

Thanks a lot for any advice,
