Lately when I attempt to download any pdf file I get the 'file name'.pdf with 'failed' as the result (when I check the Download icon on the FF status bar). I looked in my download directory and I found these 'failed' .pdf files with 0 KB and also some files (same name).pdf.part. I changed the file extension (deleted .part) to .pdf and the files would open in Acrobat. Nobody likes inconsistent problems, but occasionally a pdf will download normally!! But it fails more than it works. Using FF 102.0 (64-bit)

The message about the "Browser being managed by your organization" that shows up in Firefox settings, is new. I've been using Linux mint with Firefox for over a year on my own personal laptop and this message just showed up in my Firefox settings kind of out of the blue.. Can it be related to version 100? I was just trying to do something online. totally unrelated to the Firefox settings, and now I've spent a considerable amount of time trying to get rid of this policy. I tried to set the AppUpdate policy to true, but it still will not allow me to check for updates in the settings, or if I go under help, about. I do not use the laptop often, so this is the first time I've been unable to check for updates, and I would prefer not to have an enterprise security policy running on my personal laptop. I do not know how it came to be on the laptop but any help removing, or resetting the controls would be greatly appreciated.

firefox wrongly flags video as geoblocked

Hello Mozilla support

I wanted to view the video at this site -

https://www.daserste.de/information/reportage-dokumentation/dokus/videos/die-recyclingluege-video-102.html

(The site is German public TV)

Firefox (my default browser) says the video is geoblocked outside Germany, and my DNS proxy will not unblock it.

I tried again with Chrome browser, no problem, the video is not blocked, didn't need the DNS proxy.

Could this be a firefox problem? It seems bizarre - a small proportion of videos from the site are in fact geoblocked, most are available internationally. And always previously, whenever I encountered a blocked video, my DNS proxy would unblock it. But not for this video.

Any ideas as to what's going on?

Thanks, Fraidy . (Firefox 101.0.1 64 bit Windows 7)

I've been noticing this more and more recently. I'm using Firefox 102.0 on a Mac running Monterey (12.4) with 64GB RAM. Firefox will suddenly zoom up on a screen between 400% up to 800% (I'm guessing; no way to verify this): see screenshot. This happens on random pages without my hitting any keys or clicking on anything, and I cannot replicate it. Note that I do not have screen zoom engaged, nor do I have any sort of zoom mechanism turned on in the OS. Hitting "undo" does nothing, as the browser thinks I'm trying to undo an action on the page, not a zoom. Resetting Firefox or restarting makes no difference.

Note that the screenshot is at actual size, but I have no way to control the resolution at which it shows up for you.

I have been watching videos on paramountplus through firefox for over a year. Last week, they stopped playing at all. I can navigate the paramounplus website just fine and I am not getting any error messages, the videos simply don't start when i hit play. I spoke with support at paramountplus and they said it was because I wasn't using chrome as my browser. I did download chrome (reluctantly) with the agent on the phone and the videos played just fine. I have not made any adjustments to my computer or installed any new programing. Everything is exactly as it was when the videos were playing fine through firefox. Any ideas?

Hi,

When I type a search query into the address bar on any Facebook Group and press enter nothing happens. I need to try 2-3 times (sometimes more).

I've tried clearing cache, removing all data, program files, re-installed, but this didn't make any difference. Same on Firefox Developer. Microsoft Edge works.

The Historic Houses Association (www.historichouses.org) site has an option to show a map of interesting places. When I view this map in Firefox on Android or Windows 11, the icons show up correctly. For instance in the example map, next to Lincoln. In Android/Windows the icon shows a small castle in a drop pin while here in a Linux desktop it just shows a cross hatched box. The link to the web page still works. The roads in the Android/Windows versions correctly show A1, A46 etc. But here in Linux, you can just make out the road numbers behind the vertical hatching. Over a long period I have seen this has occur on a number of sites but I think that the maps are probably (cannot prove it) Mapbox/OpenStreetMap. But when I look at OpenStreeMap it self, the Road Numbers are fine and when I add a layer involving tags, they show as normal.

I know I could address this inquiry HHA but they will simply say 'they do not support Linux'. The site works in other environments so why not Linux? Also, as I have said, it has occurred on other sites in the past (though I must admit I cannot remember which ones and when - I tried a few while writing this support request) Is it likely that the web pages are being downloaded with a catalogue of Icons but this fails in the Linux version of Firefox? Would this account for the road numbers being corrupted as well?

The PC is running a fairly new (last 10 days) installation of Linux Manjaro with Mate desktop. However, this has been happening for some time (a couple of years) during which time, I have used Linux Mint, Debian and Manjaro, with Mate and Gnome desktops. Firefox is used as provided by Linux Manjaro, including Noscript and Adblocker - I have tried viewing this page with both disabled. The only changes I have made to Firefox settings is to enable 'when you open a link .... switch to it immediately', 'search for text when you start typing' and set 'browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab' to false.

I have put up with the problem because it only affects me, however I am about to load Linux Manjaro on to computers for other less computer literate/tolerant people who will be using similar maps. It would help them if I could get a fix.

Thanks for your time

I have discovered a problem with Firefox updates when opening a Kaspersky Safe Money browser session.

In Firefox, Tools - Settings, Firefox Updates, it shows Firefox is being updated by another instance and the option to Check for Updates has been greyed out (screenshot attached).

When you use the Help, About Firefox option it also says that Firefox is being updated by another instance (see screenshot attached).

When you check the same Settings in the Safe Money 2nd session, it shows exactly the same information and you cannot update Firefox in any session.

In previous versions of Firefox, when you opened a 2nd session it said that Firefox was being updated by another instance and the option to Check for Updates was greyed out but you could still update Firefox in the main session.

This is not a problem when using Chrome or Edge so it must be related to Firefox so can anyone suggest anything to fix this or does it need Tech Support to look into it for fixing?

Thanks.
