Viewing a pdf document in the FireFox browser (other browsers the document is fine) shows white lines though the pictures. I have tried different ways to save the document (printing or save as) as a pdf and I either get white lines or missing content while viewing on Firefox.

In the latest Firefox version (July 18) links to other pages in the same site won't work, but other links do. Why not (they work in other browsers)?

Within that same web site the links to its associated PDFs and to other websites work in all browsers, still including Firefox in its latest version, so why the links to other pages within the same site no longer work in the latest version of Firefox when they always did in every other version is a mystery to me. Being non-technical, the obvious work-around of going back to a previous version is something equally mysterious and therefore inaccessible to me. I have never had to think of doing it before, having been a Firefox (default browser) user for eight years, opting always to have auto upgrades to the latest version because of a trouble-free experience of Firefox - until now.

Filling in an online ballot yesterday on a different website, while using Firefox, threw up a very similar problem. When I clicked on 'read candidates' statements', which had a PDF icon next to it, I wasn't taken to a PDF: nothing happened. So I suspect it was a link to a different page of that website, which comprised just a PDF. All very frustrating. I have reported this to the electoral body which provides the secure online ballot for the organisation staging the election, outlining what I describe above, and asking them too to report this to Mozilla.

My work-around, until Firefox fix this issue, which I have reported to them, is simply to use Internet Explorer or Chrome when necessary, resisting the temptation to make one of them my default browser and thus make even more megabucks for their rapacious owners.

Any help would be appreciated, but please don't assume when you kindly respond that I have technical knowledge! Plain English instructions, please. Thank you.

Hi, I'm currently running version 63.0.1 , something has changed with my browser, previously when I clicked on a pdf file it would automatically open within the firefox browser. It's rather frustrating to me as a user of this great browser when a pdf file attempts to open using something other than firefox. I feel sure there MUST be some method to correct this issue. Thanks, David
