I'm on Mac. When I open a PDF in Firefox I get a print button and a download button. The download button does not offer a Save As option. It simply uses the name used in the browser - often this is a number or day or some other appellation that is less useful than allowing me to rename the PDF myself. Chrome offer to rename the file before saving but I hate Chrome.

Maybe I'm overlooking something?

When, I try to connect the wifi, wifi will connected after few hour automatically. It show the following error:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at mnit.ac.in. If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

Try again later.
 Check your network connection.
 If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Please give your valuable suggestion.

Since there is no longer a way to disable ctrl+b for bookmarks sidebar and ctrl+h for history sidebar, how does one completely disable the sidebar where nothing comes up no matter what is pressed? I want to completely trash the sidebar.

I am seeing problems identical to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1273349

When I click a menu it briefly appears and then immediately disappears.

Turning on "Disable popup auto-hide" solves the issue, but this is a work around not a solution.

Restarting Firefox with a clean brand new profile resolves the problem. So it seems nothing to do with any of my plugins.

But after I click on a link from within emacs, the first time I open a menu it is fine. Then the 2nd time I try to open a menu it disappears immediately. There might be other conditions that do this also, but this is the most reliable way I have found to date.

I believe emacs is calling firefox, by default, using "xdg-open". If I manually use this command from a command prompt to open a web page. It works fine. Huh???

I changed emacs to explicitly invoke Firefox. At first this seemed to have solved this problem. But now it has come back again.

This has been ongoing for some time, over a large range of Firefox versions. Currently I can reproduce with 68.11.0 ESR and 80.0.1

Sometimes I have done something and I think I have magically resolved the issue, but then it comes back again.

This is currently Debian/buster and Debian/bullseye using the i3 window manager. In the past I have also had the same issue with Debian/stretch. I have multiple monitors. I doubt any of this is relevant, but just in case.

Unlike the previous referenced post I have not been able to reproduce this under OSX. Although I don't often click links from emacs either. So wonder if that is significant.

I am attempting to perform a 2 steps verification.

Firefox is asking me: "Open your authentication app and enter the security code it provides." What "Authentication app"?? On my Mac? On my iPhone? I have been unable to figure out what Firefox means.

I have tried a number of those apps, but none of the codes was accepted (Authenticator, Google's Authenticator, iDnow).

Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. /Boris D.

I recently copied my Old Firefox profile to another folder and refreshed my Firefox Dev Edition browser. After refreshing, I copied all of the content of my old Firefox profile to the new default profile and then started the browser. Upon starting it, the browser was working with all of my previous add-ons. But whenever I close the browser and open it again, the icons of the add-ons at the overflow menu are not showing though there is space for the add-ons. Whenever I click at the add-ons, the error that 'Access to file was denied' - `The file at moz-extension://b408b31d-945f-43cb-881e-b1f4071942b6/index.html is not readable` shows up. I tried it with creating other profile folders and then copying my old profile data but it still always happens.

Any help?

Trying to use Google Hangouts, but cannot share camera mic. Not prompted to, and FF settings wont allow adding web address to [permissions as per help in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-manage-your-camera-and-microphone-permissions.

What other options are there? Works fine in Opera, Chrome. Big disappointment that you guys have shut it out.

Hi all, Recently Firefox started to open the Browser Console window whenever I start Firefox. Why would it do this? FYI I'm running Firefox Beta on Windows 10 1803. I already tried the suggested fix elsewhere to reset the browser homepage to about:home (it was that already) and I am talking about the browser console not the developer tools. Cheers :)

Have been using a script (.uc.js) in my profile/chrome folder to enable new-tab homepages via local files. After updating firefox ( 68.0b6, but I believe it appeared on b5) this functionality is gone. Instead it simply loads about:blank, seemingly showing that the script is not running at all.

Edit: upon further searching this seems to be to a change in Firefox 68 as a whole. Is there absolutely any way to regain this functionality?

I have 2 add ons installed-adblock plus and Roboform. Both show in add ons and show no error. I can disable or remove them. I can re-download and add them without error. But-neither show the icon on top, nor do they work. This does not appear to be the issue that occurred on 4 May. I'm stumped. When I check browser integration in Roboform, there are none listed, meaning that Roboform has not been integrated with FF, but add ons in FF show that it is and it is enabled. Nothing to check on add block plus, but there is no icon, so it is not doing anything. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Straightforward issue I just noticed.

For some reason I cannot delete some of my bookmarks. Whenever through bookmark icon/manager. With right click context menu delete, delete keyboard button, or "bookmark remove" from shortcut.. etc.

It just doesn't function. I can move those "frozen" bookmarks around in folders and such, but I simply cannot delete them.

Also happens when Alt + tab to Firefox from other window.

Text is not typing in URL(address) bar of currently opened tab

Creating new tab button summons tabs, can drag tabs, but can't switch to any except one on which Firefox hanged.
