Firefox 98.0.1 will not load some web pages that other browsers will. I get a message about Network Protocol Error with the option to "Try Again" which hasn't worked. I've tried many of the fixes suggested here but nothing changes. If I copy the link Firefox won't open and paste it in Brave or Opera the link loads fine. I don't want to quit Firefox but I can't spend time every day trying to fix it either.

I don't want the pdf to save to disk without my will when I open a pdf file from any website. Fire Fox saves the file first, then opens it for reading. How to change it? I want to read the pdf first and then decide what to do with it. This works similarly in Edge. FF is my main browser, I wouldn't want to change that, but I have too much garbage on my disk. every pdf is saved first, completely unnecessary.

The Send Tab/Link to Device feature only works in one direction, from iOS to MacOS. iOS to iOS never receives, although the popup says it sent. I'm using Firefox 98 on MacOS and iOS. I have a Windows 10 PC which can't receive or send tabs/links as well but I'll limit it to the Apple devices for the moment.

Sync and notifications are enabled on Laptop, iPhone, and iPad. I've de-synced and re-synced each device separately and together. I've attempted to send between each device separately and all together.

Neither iOS device can receive tabs/links from one another, nor send to each other. Laptop can receive tabs/links from both iPhone and iPad, but not send to either.

Each time I re-sync an iOS device I get a notification on the Laptop saying that "this computer is now connected with Firefox iOS". But still nothing works.

hi,

i'm using FF (version 98 at the moment) to print local files. It is key to me to edit header and footer for each print! the only solution i found so far to edit them at all, is to go to about:config and for example search for print.print_headerleft. Besides that is not usable at all, it simply doesn't work! The header and footer remain the same. Please tell me how can i change header and footer?

If you delete the, in my opinion much better "page setup", why don't you include all it's funktions in the new print dialog?

another problem is the size of the new print preview! it's much to small! make it resizeable please.

Or just give us back the "page setup". That would be a big advantage over chrome and edge, which suffer the same printing problems.

Thanks

I was tracking a package on the UPS website. I decided to sign up for their My Choice program. After I did that I could no longer track packages I just get the error "We are unable to complete your tracking request at this time. Please try again later.". I contacted them, UPS, and they had me try several things and the only one that would work is to use Chrome. Fire Fox will work if I use a private window. Whew do I go to fix this?

Firefox - laggy scrolling since 98.0.

OS: ArchLinux DE: i3wm, X11 GPU: GTX770, Kepler, proprietary nvidia driver Firefox version: 98.0(64-bit)

Hi! Since updating Firefox to 98.0 I've been experiencing sudden performance drops(lags/freezes/stutters) while scrolling. `about:support` page shows that compositing is `WebRender`. The issue occurs with fresh profile without any addons installed and also in `firefox-nightly`(100.0a1). However, scrolling is totally smooth in 97.0.2 and earlier versions of Firefox.

What changes in Firefox 98 could cause this, and are there any settings in `about:config` I can try to tune to solve the issue? These are the settings I've always used, and, as I mentioned, scrolling was smooth before 98.0:


gfx.webrender.all = true general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS = 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS = 200 mousewheel.min_line_scroll_amount = 40 mousewheel.system_scroll_override.enabled = false

Don't honestly how and why I am here...but a question has popped into my broken brain...recently been diagnosed , broken brain-multiple head trauma and vengeful Family,dead dad passed and I inherited womanly version of the male dominated Ankylosing spondylitis, no other charitable help. Just forever blessed, generational pain is real, women can inherit this ugly terminal autoimmune disease. I know this looks idk, phishing? I am not.My question, lead me here. So WTH, I'll ask. I lost a dear loving soul many years ago and want or add a meaningful song if his family still has the memorial page up. Just winging it, wanted to write not just for me(it's me of course). The song is about how much I love him and sorry, that I hurt him. Though Karma has played a rotten hand and hell happened to me. The song says beautifully, he is with me and well. Is that possible? Or I have to ask permission, it's impossible for me to pay, if I could, I would. If not can I cut/paste portion of lyric? Again, ask permission? Because I am poor, but the song might catch attention of his soul. Passing heaven and checking things, it's his 10years since he died. Ok that's all. If not, crayon to post saying, I am sorry and miss him daily. That yes, Karma has truly plagued and harassed my sorry broken brain. I hope that this question, made some sense. All I want is okay to play a song, and won't be noticed copyrighted? as I adbandoned mainland, caught a few plagues and pray Social security sees I am delusional. Ok, stop.my ramblings. Again, somehow the internet placed my quest. HERE. Thanks and sorry, I ramble and now deeply embarrassed. If someone got answer. Will delete and run out. Thanks Dannyell.

Maybe this is a bug report?

Adobe Digital Editions software is used by Archive.org, Open Library, Kobo store, and many other entities to deliver DRM-ed material in the form of .ascm files all named the same "URLLink.acsm" In the past, the download dialog box asked if you wanted to open the file in Adobe Digital Editions or save it to a location.

After the latest update today March 11, Firefox does not allow you to open the files in Digital Editions. It goes directly to "Save to" download location. This is not how the .acsm files are supposed to be handles. They all have the same name and are supposed to be opened into Adobe Digital Editions directly.

In Firefox Settings there is a box for - "Applications

Choose how Firefox handles the files you download from the web or the applications you use while browsing."

However, .acsm files do not appear and typing ".acsm" or the filetype name "Adobe Content Server Message" yields nothing inside this box so I cannot get Firefox to open these files with Adobe Digital Editions.

This is beyond annoying. These files are meant to be opened straight by Adobe Digital Editions. I tested it on Chrome and Chrome lets you open them fine.

Either the "Applications Choose how Firefox handles the files you download from the web or the applications you use while browsing." box functionality needs to be fixed to recognize .acsm filetypes or the previous default functionality of allowing me to choose "Open with Adobe Digital Editions" or "Save to" for this filetype needs to be restored.

If there is some other way to get this functionality back in the most current Firefox version, please advise.

Thanks!

Hello, I am using Firefox from like 10 years ago and it is my favorite browser all the time. I never have this problem before. However, recently after there was an update in Mozilla Firefox 100, I met some errors a few times. First, when I start the mozilla, it always say I need to update to the newest version which is I did a couple times and the error is still there when i restart the mozilla. It is same as this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1264949. i already try to solve it using the solution in that thread but no successful.

Second, when I am away like 10 minutes without using the browser, it got disconnected. I cannot using it like there is no connection (my internet is always on and I tried using other browser and it is on). I need to close the mozilla and start again and it become connect again.

Thank you.

Firefox used to give the option to open a file without saving. Now it saves everything to my downloads folder with no option to just open. (I am aware Firefox used to save the opened files in temp). This causes major clutter in my downloads folder and big disruptions to my work flow. Sometimes I just want to view the file and not save it to my working folder (downloads).

Is there a workaround to save to opened files in temp and the saved files to download?

Does Firefox give 2 different "save to" options? One option for a location to save downloaded files and one option for a location to save opened files?

I purchased an OlnyKey to use for two factor authorization (2fa) for social media and other sites. I set it up and tried to sign in to Facebook. Immediately a drop down window opened saying Windows indicated it had to be registered with Firefox. I clicked okay and followed the steps to create a PIN which I did. Then it said to touch my Security Key which I did and another drop down box opened stating the device failed to register.

I tried this three times, now what? Why do I need to register my Security Key? How can I see if it is registered with Firefox? What is keeping it from connecting to Facebook?

Everything I read and watch does not expose this kind of problem. I don't know how to see if the problem is Firefox, Windows, or Facebook! UGH
