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

Usually when I like an article and don't have time to read it, I'll save it for later to read it on my Kindle as plain text.

In FireFox, I'll use the F9 key to Toggle The Reader View to view it in the reader mode, then save the page as text by doing ctrl+s, as I don't need the html version or the images or extra stuff that comes with the article.

However, after the page is saved as text, getpocket.com dumps a lot of unnecessary garbage into the beginning(27 lines) & end(18 lines) of the page, even if I don't have a pocket account nor logged in as listed below.

Is there a way to prevent FF from saving the annoying Pocket self-promo garbage besides saving each page manually and tediously?

Thanks

This just started happening and I'm not sure why.

I access my email via a browser. When i compose an email If I have a .ZIP file that contains a bunch of files. If I want to attach say file # 6 and File # 7 to the email I am composing I would open windows explorer, traverse to the ZIP file location and click on it so it opens in windows Explorer. Then I'd highlight the one or two files I wanted and I'd drag them to the email.

This would typically attach the the files but it no long works - I have a feeling it may be due to windows 98 I hear you guys changed (fixed) how files are processed.

This is awful I now must extract those files to hard disk (of if there's another contained ZIP file within its even more extracting) - I'll this makes so much work and if I forget to delete all the files I execrated I'll run out of space.

Is there I setting that I can set to make it work the way it used to - I don't want to learn another browser but this change has killed my poductivity

cmd+numbers on alphanumeric keys should switch to respective tab (cmd+1 to 1st tab, cmd+5 to fifth...). With CZ keyboard layout on MacOS, cmd+1 does NOT switch to first tab, it Zooms In instead. No other browser (Edge, Safari, Opera, Orion) exhibits this behaviour. Other numbers work as expected.

FF 98.0.2 on Monterey 12.2.1.

How do I fix this? Thanks.

Microsoft Edge does not have the issues that I have described in the subject line. Edge auto fills my username and password. When switching from Firefox to Edge the two white lines on each side of the screen disappear and the screen is full size. This is very annoying and a waste of time. Firefox also lists my Operating system as Windows 7. I have Windows 10 not Windows 7!

Hello, Ever since a few updates ago, whenever I click on a .pdf, Firefox automatically saves a copy in my Downloads folder. I have changed the settings for opening a .pdf to "Always Ask," and when the pop-up opens that asks if I want to save or open with Adobe, I click "open with Adobe." This has the desired effect of opening the file in Adobe BUT ALSO the undesired effect of still downloading the file. I DO NOT want the file to download. I just want it to open in Adobe.

Cheers

My question concerns this Download Library that I found in version 98.

I do not like it now want it.

In doing a search to remedy this I came upon Download history window in support. It said to go to about:config page and change from True to False on browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel = false. I did this and this Download Library is still there.

How do I stop having a History of my Downloads?

I get the developers think the new features might be needed and good, and some are very beneficial. But, sometimes just leave things alone. At least have some setting in Privacy & Security to give those the option to turn it off. Was that not option? You all are coders, just add a few more lines of code. Easy for me to say.

Thank you Irv

Hello! Since my last update (yesterday, I think?), the predictions that pop up in the Firefox Google homepage search (center of the page, not the toolbar one) are in unreadable very light colors on white. I use a dark theme, and I have some vision problems. I can't find anywhere to change that particular color setting. Aaaand searching for a fix is hard since I can't see any of the search predictions.

I'd love any info on either how to change that, and if not, perhaps to report a bug.

Cheers, Regina
