I have used Firefox for many years now and love it and keep telling my friends and colleagues to switch to this browser rather than Google Chrome.. There is something that happens irregularly with my 'pinned tabs', every now and again when I close Firefox the next time I open it up, they are all gone. I go through history and replace them and 'Pin' them and its all fine for a while then it happens again. Most recently - in the last two days it has happened twice, it takes some time for me to restore the tabs and pin them, then I have gone into 'Options' and I have set the box (ticked it) for 'Restore previous session' but its not happening. Also when I go to the 'three bars' up on the top ribbon on the far right the option to 'Restore previous session' simply isn't there! I have no idea what is happening but its very frustrating and I would really appreciate some answer as to what might possibly be going on? Many thanks for your time, much appreciate and love your work everyone.

Привет! Раньше в Firefox был простой редактор JavaScripts, который запускался по нажатию Shift+F4. Сейчас его нет, возможно ли как-то вернуть?

В "Инструментах веб-разработчика" присутствовал простой редактор JavaScript, а теперь его нет.

Whenever I open a youtube video, go to other tabs, come back after some time and unpause it, it either takes 1-2 seconds for it to start, or the video unpauses without sound, which comes back after 1-2 seconds. Is this normal? If it is, is there a setting I can change?

Since 1-2 weeks, whenever I want to look for anything via Firefox-Google, Google asks me every time again to check my privacy settings - this was not the case before. Even when I log in to my Google account, next time I start the Firefoc browser again, the sam question from Google pops up. As I do not want to share data with Google, I need to change the settings ( YouTube, advertising... ) to off again.

Hello, at some point in the recent updates (with FF 80? I can't say as I have skipped a few updates over summer and only recently updated again to the most recent Beta), the way in which my Firefox browser handles PDFs has changed. After quite a bit of research and scouring through other threads I haven't been able to find a way to reverse it. I do hope there is...

-PREVIOUS BEHAVIOUR- 1) When I clicked on a link to randomsite.com/example.pdf, FF would open the PDF within the browser, either in the same tab or (if I requested it) in a new tab or window. The URL line would show "randomsite.com/example.pdf 2) The only exception was where a website had forced the PDF to be downloaded, in which case the dialogue asking me how I wanted to open the file would appear. In earlier days, in that case I had to pick Adobe or Preview or similar, more recently the dialogue also allowed me to open the file in Firefox. In that case, the URL line would show the local URL, i.e. "file:///Users/Michael/Downloads/example.pdf"

-CURRENT BEHAVIOUR- 1) What now happens is for any PDF I click on whatsoever, Firefox forces me to download it. Depending on what I put in about:preferences, I either get the dialog window asking me to make a choice, or it directly opens a new Firefox tab, but crucially it still downloads the file and shows me the local URL of it.

-WHAT I WOULD LIKE- A way to revert to the previous behavior where for 90% of PDFs, I never downloaded them but just viewed them in-browser. I look at a large number of different PDF files online every day for my work and I certainly don't want to download all of them and having to de-clutter my download folder all the time.

-WHAT I HAVE TRIED- - I went to "Applications" in about:preferences. I can set the relevant entries for PDF files to "Always ask" or to "Open in Firefox" but even with the latter set, it still downloads them and opens the local copy, rather than not saving a local copy in /Downloads/ at all. - I have checked in about:config and "pdfjs.disabled" is set to "false" as it should be

I don't think I have any extensions or add-ons related to PDFs, in any case I haven't installed any new ones recently.

Any clues appreciated, my overflowing Downloads folder is grateful.

I finally updated firefox after months of it popping up. Now my printer settings are stuck in the last setting i used(brother printer), I can change it to my DYMO printer, but it defaults back to the Brother printer on every new print I do. This is eating up a lot of time changing 3 settings on every print, 50 prints a day. Taking me 5x longer on each label.

How can i make firefox keep my current/last used settings. I'd rather not have to use Chrome browser.

TIA

Hi community,

I found I cannot open any local directory, like "file:///home/". Firefox keeps loading but shows a blank page. Actually I found I cannot open PDFs by Firefox first, and then I found I cannot open any directory. I think these two issues are related.

Does anyone have some idea about this issue? OS: Manjaro Linux Firefox: 80.0.1

Thanks.
