Since updating to 78.0 I cannot download pdf files from magazinelib.com. I can do so on Microsoft Edge and on Android, but not Firefox. I get the save/open/etc. popup; no matter which I click the file simply cycles and never downloads. Other sites seem unaffected. Example: https://psv4.userapi.com/c856436/u527052285/docs/d8/30d700e258ef/Classic_Boat_-_August_2020.pdf?extra=Yvnbe7eap0_wHynxixT-awIpguuucjYxj3XdvQ5_GicbCMyhb5V3RwSqD635Igkv6zb8Vxj1nYOfhKccAX8b-DwtFKKQ-GmSoYMEpu1-Afroli1umCG4JAcT5T8t5u5T_cp8Vo-vRbwhYQ

A while back a change occurred where, when I use my top sites, whether it be through the drop down address bar, or a new tab, Amazon.com has been replaced with Search with Amazon.com. This does nothing for me.

I usually visit Amazon.com without the intention of searching for anything immediately, so now , when selecting this choice, instead of taking me to Amazon.com, i get sent to an address bar with @amazon on it. Which wouldn't be terrible, if hitting enter would at least take me to amazon.com, but no, hitting enter does nothing.

It has made this shortcut useless to me, and often infuriating.

I have yet to ind a way to change this.

I find Pocket quite creepy. Despite your attempts to reassure users about the privacy of the system, the relevance of the suggested articles with respect to my recent searches does make me feel like I'm being followed. That's not the experience I expect from a browser like Firefox.

So I unticked the "Recommended by Pocket" in the Preferences. But it's not clear to me what that does exactly. Q1. Does it just hide the suggestions or does it disabled the Pocket system entirely? Would it be possible to make the purpose of that tickbox clearer for the users?

Q2. If it does disable it, why can I still see "extensions.pocket.enabled true" under about:config? Why can't that be turned to false from the Preferences?

Q3. That config key indicates that it is a browser extension. If indeed it is, why isn't it listed under "about:addons"? Why can't Pocket be disabled or removed like any other extension?

When using Surface Go without physical keyboard attached, tapping on the Firefox address bar or text fields in web pages should trigger on-screen keyboard to appear. Works in other browsers on the same device, but not Firefox 77.

Annoying workaround is: long-press to force context menu to appear, screen keyboard also appears, cancel context menu, start typing.

Hello,

I have recently started having an issue where my PC's TCP/IP stack stops working shortly after starting Firefox Browser.

Windows reports that the ethernet connection still has internet connectivity and pings to a WAN IP address return responses but it seems all TCP/IP functions higher than Layer 3 are not available.

No browsers can find web pages, Outlook cannot connect to our web based mail server etc.

The stack comes back up after rebooting the OS and stays up for all internet use with other browsers. It just fails a few seconds after starting Firefox.

I have run system file checker - no problems found. I have run Windows Memory diagnostic - no problems found. I have run SeaTools for DOS on the HDD and the Long Test Passed. I have run a full anti-virus and malware scan - no problems found.

I have not sent a crash report since Firefox itself hasn't actually crashed!

I have been a long time user of the browser and would rather not have to change to a different browser.

Any help in getting this resolved would be greatly appreciated...

Best regards,

Simon.

I'm used to Chrome's ability to automatically open a history item I click on in a new tab. Firefox instead opens that history item in the tab I'm currently in, which is really inconvenient. I don't want to have to remember to open a new tab BEFORE I look in history for a specific item. I can't find any way to do this in Firefox - it may be there, but not to my eyes.

OK guys, here is the question.

Lets say I installed some extension, it seemed harmless, did it job just fine. I tried functionality and then just removed extension from Firefox.

two questions here: 1) Is it possible that extension was spyware? (I suppose the answer is always "could be"). 2) Can it do any harm after you removed the extension even if it was malicious software?

Thanks for your help everyone.

Hi,

I am unable to login to any Apple websites (Apple Music, Apple Support and the Apple Beta program page), it just spins trying to load the login form.

Tested on Chrome and it brought the login page up instantly, then tried a Firefox Nightly install and this too was able to bring the login page up.

Then decided must be an add-on so restarted in Safe mode, deleted all Cookies & Cache and disabled hardware acceleration but still no luck with getting through; has anyone experienced this before and can point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance!

Up until a few months ago I was able to read and leave my own comments on a local news website. Not sure what changed, but that option is gone. I had read that it was a Facebook social plug-in which allowed the comments to work so I assume that's where my problem is. It does work when I use IE, and I did find a site that lets me comment using a workaround: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/comments/ (I'm not a developer so I can't figure out how to fix things from the info given here). The news site I am trying to make comments on is: https://www.channel3000.com/ At the bottom of the page with the news article where I'd normally see comments I now just see the word COMMENTS twice (see attached image). I did clear my cache, delete cookies for the news site and for Facebook (and then pressed the "accept all cookies" button), and disabled plug-ins one at at time to see if they were the issue. No luck.

Can anyone help please?
