When I go to a web page which is a PDF, the web page used to load as a PDF. Now there are 2 tabs, one is blank and has an address which refers to the PDF location, and the other is a PDF saved to the Temp folder (eg. file:///C:/Users/USER/AppData/Local/Temp/some_PDF.pdf)

My preference is: www.some_website/some_PDF.pdf

This is because I save the tabs, and the next time I use Firefox, the temporary PDF is not loaded anymore. As well, I prefer 1 tab instead of 2.

Where is the setting to adjust?

Hi everyone,

After the 85.0.0 update and still now with 85.0.1 and 85.0.2 firefox crashes. It's usually happened with clicking a link that'll take action outside of firefox (not a url link but a download attachment link in gmail or a print link). I've also had it happen with placing links from the search bar to the bookmark bar, and just recently opening up the 'show all bookmarks' window.

It'll hang, i won't be able to click anything, and then it'll give me the 'close window' screen. It's never fully crashed and given me an error message. I start up firefox again, restore the session and everything is back to where it was.

I've tried refreshing. I've tried creating a new profile. I've tried uninstalling and downloading 85 direct from mozilla. Nothing seems to be working. I'm going to see how it does for a bit in safe mode, but all the add-ons I have I've had way before the 85 update and all of them are recommended by mozilla.

I'm all ears (eyes?) for solutions!

I do not want and never requested "automatic upgrades". I want them stopped and if possible the last several "upgrades" reversed. How can I get this accomplished. It's bad enough that "google" has it's fingers in everything as it is without "upgrades" I don't want and didn't ask for, and have done nothing to make things work any better. In fact it's gotten worse. If anyone knows how I can contact firefox directly it would be most appreciated.

I set the colors of visited links and unvisited links in [Options]-[General]-[Language and Appearance]-[Color].

If you want to take effect, you need to select [All] in [Use the color you selected above to overwrite the color specified on the page]

In this way, all styles of all website pages: text color and background color are all changed.

Is there a way to only change the color of the link, while the text and background colors still use the web page's own; or specify that only the domain name pages in the list list use the specified color, and the website's own default color is used for those that are not explicitly specified?

I have a multiple page email or document and I only want to print one single page. On the standard print dialog box there was an option to click "current page". This was fast as it only involved one single click and then hit print. After an updated a few months ago the option to print the current page is not longer highlighted and cannot be clicked. I have to chose "pages" then type in the page number then click the print button. Can the print current page radio button be engaged again in the config somewhere?

I was having some issues with my bookmark button in the url/address bar working improperly, which wasn't the first time. However I've forgotten the fix I've used a few times in the past. I don't mean the button that exists in the gray border outside the bar, I mean the one that sat inside the bar next to the three dot option button. Specifically the one that would light up to indicate that a page was bookmarked and, when clicked, would show what it was saved as in your bookmarks and in which bookmark folder location.

The button was no longer allowing me to edit a bookmark I had recently saved when I had clicked on it, simply lighting up to show it had been saved. When I right clicked it, it gave an option to hide it and I clicked it in a rush thinking I could toggle it back on and now it's gone. Again, this is not the first time I've had this issue but it happens far apart enough I've forgotten how to fix it.

For now I have an extension that somewhat imitates this specific bookmark feature, whereas it will light up to indicate a page I'm viewing is currently saved to my bookmarks and I am able to quick save via clicking it, but it's a cheap imitation of the real thing. It gives me no option to edit the bookmark from there nor does it tell me in what location a currently viewed page I have bookmarked is located.

If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know. All guides, tips, and help listed on Firefox's forums, help pages, and web searches are several updates behind or years old and absolutely worthless. Please and thanks.

During one of the update downloads, an annoying boxed query was added offering the option of automatically emptying the email trash folder. I do not want that option and have repeatedly clicked on either cancel or the red x. Nothing seems to work and this is very annoying.

I like to keep my inbox as clear as possible, but there have been a number of times when I've had to go back into the trash file to review a past email. I DO NOT want the auto delete function for my trash. PLEASE tell me how to get rid of the option.
