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 used Apple Migration Assistant to move the entirety of my wife's old iMac (the old computer won't accept updates, so her machine was not secure) to a new one. The migration operation appeared smooth and essentially perfect.

Somehow my Bookmarks have overwritten my wife's (years ago, I turned Synch = ON, was that it? Synch is OFF now). The bookmarks are still OK on the old computer, so how do I locate and move that info to the new machine "AND BE SURE TO GET IT RIGHT"? My wife is the family business manager, so her bookmarks are Insurance, Banking, Healthcare, etc.

I've done some searching, but there are thousands of posts, I can't wade through all of that.

Recently I upgraded my Windows 10 to Windows 11 and since doing so, I've had consistent errors while browsing the web on Firefox. Most notably the "Humm. We're having trouble finding that site." error message.

For example, when visiting, say Verizon.com, the tab will display the aforementioned error to which I press Try Again and the website loads correctly every-time. No hiccups on the refresh.

I've tried the following:

  1. I've performed a completely clean uninstall of Firefox and then reinstall
  2. Cleared all browser history/cache
  3. Removed all extensions
  4. Disabled IPv6, HTTPS Over DNS, No Proxy
  5. Ran through Firefox's troubleshooting
  6. Used Firefox Troubleshooting Mode in the Browser
  7. Tested that the problem does not happen while using Edge

I've never had a single problem on Windows 10 with Firefox. Curious if others are experiencing the same issues and if there are any fixes. Nothing else on the PC has changed.

  • Windows 11 21H2 2200.348
  • Network driver is the latest Win11 edition
  • Firefox 95

I have two (so far) websites, e.g. yahoo mail and Intuit, that tell me I need to update FireFox. (Can ignore only Yahoo.) However, I did one update, which blew away all of my add-ons, and I found that I was using latest version.

Does anyone have a solution? Are sites not accepting tracking and ad blocking now? I also use DuckDuckGo for search engine.

Would appreciate some words of wisdom on this.

Thank you, Bonsaibill

I almost exclusively browse privately using Duckduckgo/Firefox. I have a few news subscriptions, and other sites which require login each time I open them, which is a bit of a nuisance. Some of them have a "remember me" checkbox, but it doesn't seem to work-I have to log in each time. Is there a way around this? By the way, the "Add Images" button on this page will not let me add a screenshot of the message I am getting.

thanks
