So when i go to click log in on pandora (desktop website) nothing happens. I ran a diagnostic and it said it detected a "Flash Block" (first time ever hearing about this) and Ive tried both turning flash off (pandora cant play without it apparently) and allowing everything from the Firefox options menu and its still saying its detecting a flash block.

I am trying to change the text color and background color of the menus that drop-down from the bookmarks toolbar in Firefox. I have tried the user-Chrome.css suggestion but it doesn't work. I can't include a screenshot as the menus disappear as soon as I try. Themes don't seem to change that part of the display. Any help appreciated. Thanks

I want to vote by mail but the Elections Canada PDF has this message on top: "This PDF document contains forms. The filling of form fields is not supported." Googled this extensively but there is no Adobe PDF reader listed in Firefox "options" or "add-ons". Only Firefox default PDF reader is available. Adobe is not listed under Open with different viewer - Other..., either. The default Firefox reader won't allow me to fill in the form and print it. Needless to say, I'm very upset I won't be able to vote. I am a wheelchair user with very serious medical problems and cannot leave my home to go to a voting station. This must be a new thing FF is doing because I filled out and printed this form to vote in our election four years ago. What possible reason does Mozilla have for not allowing someone to fill out and/or print a form?

buenas tardes.

Os escribo porque firefox se me cierra inesperadamente. He probado a desinstalarlo y reinstalarlo, he revisado que tenga todas las actualizaciones y todo lo que mencionais en vuestra pàgina. El uso de memoria de firefox con 8-10 pestañas abiertas es de 1.149mb de ram lo que creo qu es excesivo.

Como puedo hacer para evitar que se me cierre firefox solo.

Muchas gracias

As said in the title. I am an everyday user, I download files often. Suddenly, the download window's OK button stopped working, staying grey. Everything else with the browser seems to work. Other browsers work fine. I tried restarting the computer and even reinstalling Firefox. Cannot download or open files anymore, which makes this browser unusable until the problem is solved.

On some sites, clicking on a PDF results in it being opened in Google Drive where it looks like gibberish. Firefox is ignoring the preference to open PDFs in Mac Preview. Opening in the Firefox PDF viewer also did not work.

The problem goes away if I disable "Google PDF Viewer" add-in.

Almost every time I open FF I have to sign in and sync, and start my browsing from scratch. My previous session does not open: I have tried several times to set my preferences to restore previous session. Sometimes the session is there but after opening and closing the browser a few times the session is lost.

I am only user of my lap top computer. I signed into my account and got and filled out all auth codes and set preferences. But when I finish my work at end of the day I always quit all apps and turn off my computer. So when I reopen the next day I have to sign in again to firefox which then generates another email saying "new sign in" and I have to start the whole process again. I have spent many hours reading all the documentation Firefox has provided but not solved problem. From all I've read once all auth is done it should be setup. At this time I can't put firefox on my mobile as I don't have any room left for new apps. I just want it on my laptop. I like the browser but to have to go thru all the sign ins each time is pushing me to use Safari. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

firefox 69.0.1 on a HP8000e SFF3 Ghz, Ice dragon works normally when I switch from a 'dead' fiirefox, but does not allow adblock plus. When I return to firefox, it usually works normally. Not sure if it's me or firefox. Have tried refreshing and lost themes and settings. It didn't seem to work for long. Thank you for any assistance. Will try with extensions disabled next time it occurs.

The "permissions" area of the settings doesn't let users input a site and manage it as it describes in the documentation.

I'm having an issue with google, I use google voice for making calls with my Mac using firefox version 69 (and 69.0.1) and until recently I was able to have firefox remember that I granted google permission to access my microphone. Now it asks every time I make a call and the microphone is accessed. The documentation says there should be a "remember this decision" box, but none exists. It also says I would be able to go into the permission settings and mark it as always allow, but that isn't an option either, just allow or block. The absence of the more permanent permissions is similar to other permission windows like for notifications and location sharing. There is a box to block future requests in the settings but that applies to all sites and it blocks instead of allows. What am I missing? I haven't made any recent changes to settings or extensions. Any information you can provide would be much appreciated. Thank you very much.
