My current pdf behaviour is set to always open in firefox.

When clicking a link to a pdf, firefox will open it in browser (desired behavior) but when I click a pdf download link (even the one in the default firefox pdf viewer) it gives me a prompt asking if I want to save or download. In other cases like downloading a pdf from google drive, it will give me a prompt asking if I want to save open or open with firefox. My desired behavior for a download link is to just always download.

Since they are prompting me even though I've set it to open in firefox, the browser must be able to see a difference in the links but if I select download and select "do this automatically from now on" then it overrides my default behavior for normal pdf links and everything auto-downloads. Is there a way to set what happens in these cases? The extra prompt is just annoying and the last annoyance after switching from chrome recently

I am in the USA. Every time, on any page or website that I need to provide credit card info, when I click in the box to type in the CC numbers/expiration date/CCV, a window pops up as it should (for auto-fill) with my credit card information. In that window, I can scroll over the different credit cards, click on the one I want to use, and it SHOULD auto-fill into the box where the numbers would normally be typed in. Now, the window still pops up and I can scroll over the credit cards and choose one, but when I click on any of the particular credit cards, the auto-fill doesn't work. The boxes in "settings" are checked to allow auto-fill. It worked for months, then just stopped. Thanks for your assistance!

I use a Firefox account on two different machines- one is a Mac and the other is a Windows machine. I have some programs installed on the Windows machine that installed an extension for Firefox. Those programs are not Mac compatible but because of the same account, those extensions were copied to the Firefox installation on Mac. I was wondering if there is a way to isolate the extensions to just the windows installation? Thanks!

I'm trying to make a bunch of donations online. I have a different credit card to do this. Some sites don't list it.

Also this credit card is expiring so I have a new expiry date and CCV, but other sites just give me an error message, no way to update.

Can you give me a link to where I can change my autofill info?

When I select a tab I would like to see and hear only that tab. One single mouse click should select a tab, unmute that tab and mute all the other tabs, all at the same time.

Selecting a tab would be equivalent to selecting a channel on a tv.

Then when (with a single click) I select a different tab, it would be equivalent to selecting a different tv channel

New Tab Shortcut Thumbnails Are Replaced by Useless Icons

In the most recent FireFox updates (94), the New Tab page seems to have replaced my recent site Shortcuts graphics. Whereas this screen was previously displaying miniature images of the various web pages, they are now displaying only the web site favicon.

While I understand that this eliminates a potential security hole, my shortcut list contains a number of commonly-used pages from my own web site -- and now every single one of them has the same fav icon, instead of the mini thumbnail of the actual page. This makes it difficult and darn-near impossible to discern between the various icons, especially since every one has the exact same text -- the START of the URL (including the web site name), and not the END of the URL, which would actually allow me to know which icon is for which page.

I have already disabled the "newnewtabexperience" config option (which fixed this in the past), but it doesn't appear to be working any more. Is there a newnewnewnewnewtabexperience setting that I should look for?

Hello You Lovely People,

I am so frustrated...for years, my Firefox Browser has worked flawlessly. I love all the feature and hate to switch to the dark side.

The two primary frustrations are as follows:

1. I have placed my settings to "Auto Populate" my email address line and password fields. The password auto populates w/o problem but the email field will not. I have reloaded the Firefox and checked and double checked the settings and since one half works and the 2nd does not, I feel the error is not mine.

I'd would love any suggestions

2. When entering text on the "Subject Line" for an email, let's suppose I enter: "Good" , hit the space bar to add "Morning"...the cursor moves back to the beginning of the line and inserts "Morning" in front of "Good". Then I am forced to add spaces and redo the Subject I had intended.

This is clearly nothing to do with me...it's just broken.

I have this problem across all my devices, excluding the iPhone as it's not Firefox, it's an Apple App. The Chrome, and Safari browsers do not have either of these issues.

I am a dedicated Apple user so all my laptops and desktops are Apple.

I thank you all and look forward to any ideas!!

Happy Holidays

Firefox used to have an 'email link' menu option, which would open the email program defined in the Firefox preferences. In my case Gmail. This option has been replaced by the 'Share' menu options, where choosing 'Mail' opens Apple's mail program, not the Gmail which is my preferred e-mail client. I'm using MacOS 11.6. The 'Share' menu options are Apple system extensions and I can't see a way to add Gmail to those. Does anybody have a solution?
