I think I have a bug to report:

When I browse a website with an embedded PDF viewer (must be a Firefox default viewer because I haven't installed any other plug-ins), a notification bar on top of the website (right under the bookmark bar) pops up saying (translated from German): [Icon: ?] The PDF-document is not displayed correctly. [Button: "view with other app"] [Button: "x" for closing the bar].

The PDF viewer works, so the error seems unneccessary, but what really bothers me is that the bar can't be closed. Clicking the X-button on the very right doesn't work - the bar frozen until I restart the browser or close the tab. This problem exists already since summer, so at least for 2 or more updates.

Plainly speaking, I don't like the new address bar, how it auto completes my searches or the results it pulls. I didn't like it when it was defaulted to being on starting with version 75 but I was able to easily switch a few setting in about:config to fix it. Those settings no longer affect the address bar as of update 77.

The settings I had changed were:

browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus browser.urlbar.update1 browser.urlbar.update1.interventions browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips

which were all set to false. I saw that setting "browser.urlbar.disableExtendForTests" to "true" might be the solution but, while it does stop the address bar from expanding when using it, it also stops it from expanding at all so the websites that would come up from searching can no longer be seen either (they are still called and using the down arrow will let me scroll through the results, I just can't see any of them). It also doesn't fix the results issue which I would say is the most important.

I would like to know what I need to do so that: 1. The results it shows me are no longer based on frequent visit (basically, the pre-update search system, as is they are scattered and look messy, pulling many different sites in a seemingly random order and it's not particularly useful) 2. It no longer autocompletes results (IE. "F" autocompleting to "facebook.com", this is always something that has bothered me regardless is context) 3. It no longer pops out/expands when in use (admittedly this is mostly an aesthetic issue but I still don't like how it looks)

Hi, I have used Firefox on my desktop pc using Windows o/s many years with minimal problem. Last few weeks Firefox operating strangely. Starts off fine then after opening a few tabs will not open others. Seems to be searching for new url but no show. When I close it down to re-open fresh a pop-up box appears with option 'close firefox'. Only when selected will firefox re-open. That then works fine for a few tabs then will not open after that. I have tried Refresh, Restart without add-ins, Safe mode. None have removed the problem. I have thought about Uninstall then reinstall a 'clean' firefox, but worried about losing all my data. The problem seems to have started a few weeks back after a Windows 10 update but I am not sure about that. Any help gratefully received. Thanks.

Firefox today will not load any websites on laptop. For this question using a different browser on which no problem. Have been through the process clear cookies and cache, clicked 'OK' but when I go back into the 'clear history' window again it still shows the same 'All selected items will be cleared' as if the action has not happened and pages still not loading.

Wondering if I should just download Firefox again?? Help!

I mainly use Firefox. I worked offline on a couple of mails on yahoo webmail, intending to send them in the morning. On waking up, I went online to send wanted to send them, but they could not. Needless to say, the texts of those mails have been lost and were not saved as drafts. All my firefox pages, old and new, now open as bare pages, without links, formatting, pics or functionalities. I am not even able to upload here an image of my screen on a typical page. My email is [email]@yahoo.com.

I found out, that the getUserMedia Promise in Firefox only resolves, if the Tab is active or by clicking on the Tab Instance: (Firefox, 81.0)

navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia({ audio: true}).then(() => console.log("done"))

Otherwise, the Promise never resolves or rejects. Is this a bug or a feature, and where is this documented? Is there a media Config setting, to tell Firefox to allow getUserMedia Promise to resolve in non-active Tabs? Otherwise this looks like a bug for me...

I saw a post on this where they were instructed to go to safe mode and Viola! it works. That is fine, but it does not fix the problem.

My Firefox browser opens all links except what appears to be links from ads or forwarding links from a site to where something is being sold.

Whenever I click on one of these I get the, "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." They open fine on Edge. Is there a setting on Firefox that is blocking these?

There appears to be a bug in Firefox when I use this website, https://www.ourguide.com.au/tv_guide.php?r=melbourne&w=now

When you scroll down, the headings move right and show above the wrong information, see attached screen shots.

If you use this website on Chrome, you don't get the scroll issue so I think it is either a Firefox bug or something that needs changing in my Firefox settings.

I am running Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit).

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Howdy. Some pages won't open, although the URL is correct. Copying that URL will usually open in Edge. Also many pictures, and/or ads won't show, just the revolving circle, or broken picture icon, but again some wil show in the Edge. But I prefer to use FF if possible. I have tried disabling things like Duck Duck Go and FF security etc, etc, but maybe there is something I'm not aware of. At least one place (AlSears) said their pic is PDF, but other PDFs open. The following URL is Auckland Motorway cameras, and many of those do not open, but show the broken pic icon, but everything is fine in The Edge. https://www.aucklandmotorways.co.nz/

The following URL, the Upgrade link just has the circle running. https://store.alsearsmd.com/?s=LIFETIME#

New Zealand official Met Service weather, if I change from 7 Days to 48 hours, or vice versa, FF completely seizes up and I have to End Task in Task Manager. https://www.metservice.com/towns-cities/locations/auckland

I'm not aware of any AdBlockers Plugins and extensions shown below.

Any thoughts, anyone?

I hate the "This time, search with" in the URL bar. When I want to search, I use the Search bar for that. I don't need extra icons that I'm not going to use taking up space in the URL bar. I've seen it suggested that they can be removed in the Search options page. But when I've tried that, it also removes them from the Search bar.

Here's what I want: for the URL bar to only have space for a URL, no "This time, search with" nonsense, but the Search bar left completely intact, with all the search engines I use.

I need to know how to get the browser back to its normal functionality. I cannot right click on pretty much anything without it opening something in a new tab. It's infuriating and I can't find the answer on google. Does anyone have any solution? It breaks my workflow to the point where I am considering switching bowers. Have happily been using Firefox for 10 years without this problem. Reinstalling does nothing.

I think the real problem is that it opens the little context menu and then immediately clicks the first option. For example if I right-click a misspelled word it just fixes it automatically.
