How can we get Firefox to roll back the recent, very unpopular updates? What was the greatest browser is now unusable. They took a great product and utterly destroyed it. At least give us the option of a Firefox Classic.

I use version 81 of firefox.

A new update of a website has disallow download of pdf. As the attachment I can only print pdf (or print to virtual printer) but I'd like normally save this pdf.

If I click with right key I can only save html (no pdf) and also use an external viewer I have same problem.

Any idea please?

thanks

Dark mode is a great feature and one of the reasons I love android. Especially with an OLED screen to conserve battery power but also save the eyes.

Firefox's dark mode is not for the following reasons.

- in between tabs/websites when the page data is loading a blaring white screen is displayed. This when contrasted to a website that is dark using DarkReader is quite blinding.

- It's dark but it as most reputable apps are offering a OLED dark mode to allow for the battery saving feature of having pixels being turned off. This should be enabled as a Firefox option or allow themes to do this for you.

PDFs are always downloaded and local copy opened instead of in-browser

Hello, at some point in the recent updates (with FF 80? I can't say as I have skipped a few updates over summer and only recently updated again to the most recent Beta), the way in which my Firefox browser handles PDFs has changed. After quite a bit of research and scouring through other threads I haven't been able to find a way to reverse it. I do hope there is...

-PREVIOUS BEHAVIOUR- 1) When I clicked on a link to randomsite.com/example.pdf, FF would open the PDF within the browser, either in the same tab or (if I requested it) in a new tab or window. The URL line would show "randomsite.com/example.pdf 2) The only exception was where a website had forced the PDF to be downloaded, in which case the dialogue asking me how I wanted to open the file would appear. In earlier days, in that case I had to pick Adobe or Preview or similar, more recently the dialogue also allowed me to open the file in Firefox. In that case, the URL line would show the local URL, i.e. "file:///Users/Michael/Downloads/example.pdf"

-CURRENT BEHAVIOUR- 1) What now happens is for any PDF I click on whatsoever, Firefox forces me to download it. Depending on what I put in about:preferences, I either get the dialog window asking me to make a choice, or it directly opens a new Firefox tab, but crucially it still downloads the file and shows me the local URL of it.

-WHAT I WOULD LIKE- A way to revert to the previous behavior where for 90% of PDFs, I never downloaded them but just viewed them in-browser. I look at a large number of different PDF files online every day for my work and I certainly don't want to download all of them and having to de-clutter my download folder all the time.

-WHAT I HAVE TRIED- - I went to "Applications" in about:preferences. I can set the relevant entries for PDF files to "Always ask" or to "Open in Firefox" but even with the latter set, it still downloads them and opens the local copy, rather than not saving a local copy in /Downloads/ at all. - I have checked in about:config and "pdfjs.disabled" is set to "false" as it should be

I don't think I have any extensions or add-ons related to PDFs, in any case I haven't installed any new ones recently.

Any clues appreciated, my overflowing Downloads folder is grateful.

Since installing Big Sur on my iMac I, when I click on a url in a Apple Mail email I get the "profile not accessible" message. If Firefox happens to be running when I click on the link it will work.

I've tried all of the suggestions for fixing this issue to no avail.

Just wondering if anyone else is having the same problem with Big Sur?

I think adding a pdf editing tool [like the one built into microsoft edge] to firefox would be a very nice introduction because it will make it easier to manage this type of documents without having to look for dodgy add-ons or sketchy websites, or even it will make unnecesary download specific apps to edit the file, and generally that is a paid option (i'm looking at you adobe). So please devs, if you make it possible, i´m sure the community will love this feature

I have always used ebay and paypal with firefox until last week when it changed during checkout having purchased an item

It allows me to select payment method of paypal then asks for user name and password, then it re-directs me to a screen which asks if I want to save the details for future use, I select not now and it goes off via another link to paypal and then puts up a blank text free screen with a green circle spinner in it and theire it remains forever ????????????

If I log in to paypal seperately all works fine as does checking out in the exact same way in internet explorer so it looks like a broken or blocked link within firefox ?

I have spoken to Paypal who inform me that it is a Firefox issue..................

Can anyone help please ?

After the updating to the last version of Firefox in Android, the browser started to save the downloaded gifs and videos to some different location, so they are not displayed in the phone gallery. With previous versions this was not happening. Due to this issue, it is being harder to share these contents as you have to locate them by manually searching through the file explorer, while before you could just get them easily through the messaging apps. I couldn't find any setting to fix it.
