I use html pages on an internal hard drive that link to pdf documents. For some reason since Version 91.0.2 was installed I can not get the pdf documents to open with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.The new version insist on opening the pdf's in the Firefox web browser. When I click on a pdf link at an external website the files will open in Adobe Acrobat. I used the code below to test the open in Adobe Acrobat execution and it works on the w3School example. When I run it strait from my hard drive the document opens in the Firefox web browser.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Title of the document</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <h1>PDF Example</h1>
    <p>Open a PDF file <a href="datasheet_cube-model-715.pdf">example</a>.</p>
  </body>
</html>

Please let me know if there is a solution. Thank you,

I have had to re-install my o/s (win10) and reload all the applications. Effectively a virgin install. I have no options/preferences in the menu selection. In settings I can restore tabs that were open when I close Firefox but no option to open specific pages or use current pages.

Hello,

I am using Firefox version 92. The screenshot function is not working, both if I right click and request a screenshot from the slideout menu, and if I request a screenshot from the shortcuts/overflow menu (scissors icon). I have attached a screenshot (taken with ‘prntscr” through windows) png of the result that takes place on my screen. The screen will freeze with this image of a large X until I do a refresh of the page. Cntl-Shift-S also does not work. I have tried clearing the cache, running FF in safe mode, refreshing FF, reinstalling FF, and I have ensured that the extensions.screenshots.disabled setting in about:config is set to ‘false’ (also toggled it to ‘true’ and back to ‘false’). I have attached a screenshot of all the settings in about:config that pertain to screenshots.

Thank you for your help.

Pop up blocker bad change: disallowing a manual, hot key, new tab open

I thought my screen was locked. Then I checked another tab and finally realized it was the pop-up blocker on my current tab causing the problem. I was trying to manually hot key open a link (a news article) on the current tab (also a news article). The blocker was refusing this action. It would be absurd to have to unblock this action for each website when my intent is so obviously clear given a manual hot key open. Is there some setting I am missing? A change made to the code? I have never had this happen before.

Hi All. Recently went into the Firefox Preference Settings and there were no check marks on anything that I usually have them on, like: check to make sure Firefox is default browser, block deceptive sites, can't check mark any item in the Clear History window, nothing has a mark so I don't know if what I want on IS On or OFF. Hopefully someone of you can help me out with this. It will be so much apreciated. Thanks. Charlene

Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.

I'm currently in my vacation home and I don't have home internet here. I'm connecting through my mobile phone using limited mobile data. and I selected not to download updates because it keeps updating itself like twice in a week and every MB counts in limited data plans especially if it's just 4 GB total for each month.

But now every time I open the firefox it showing download latest update popup like an annoying virus on the top right corner where 3 horizontal lines are located.

I checked the internet and previously this was an option in it's settings. Then this option removed and only hidden behind the about:config . and now it's completely removed from about:config either.

The only reason I switched from chrome to firefox was because google became an absolute dictator lately and all it's changes was to limit down my accessibility. I switched to firefox becuse it doesn't backstab it's users and they give the choice to it's users rather than dictating it like dictators. So did I make a mistake switching to firefox? Is firefox becoming just like chrome now? or is there (hoping so much) and option given us to turn off the notifications as well?
