Hello,

I'm not sure when it started, maybe a week ago. When I open firefox, I'm logged out of "most" of my accounts sometimes. I'll log back in and it will last a few browser closing and reopenings. Some websites seem to log out quicker, or it's possibly just random.

I've been using Firefox for a very long time and I've never had an issue like this. It's frustrating because I have to go through 2-factor each time a website logs me out. And so far, it hasn't happened to Discord in browser. It affects Gmail, Hotmail, Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit.

I did not change any settings recently until after it started happening (I set "Enhanced Tracking Protection" to standard thinking it would help but it hasn't).

Thank you.

New change?? No longer different PDF handling for in-browser vs. Download panela

On FF v78.0.2 (Win 10/64-bit), it used to be that I could open PDF links within a website using FF's built-in PDF Viewer. However, after saving them to disk, when I opened the PDF from the Downloads panel, it would open in my preferred 3rd party app. This was desired and worked perfectly.

But this seems to have changed! I either have to commit to the built-in always, or an external app always, irrespective of whether I am opening from a browser link or the download panel.

This is a terrible behavior. FF should open PDFs in the download handler (like ALL other file types there) with the OS's preferred PDF handler, which, in my case, is not FF's built-in Viewer.

If open a PDF in the built-in Viewer and save it from there, why would I want to re-open it in the built-in PDF viewer when opening from the download panel?

FF's built-in Viewer is great for a quick view of a PDF, I quite like it. But if I take the time to save it, I typically want more advanced functionality, like highlighting, filling in forms, etc. It worked perfectly before, please revert and stop fixing things that aren't broken. Or at least differentiate between the download panel and website links. Is there any hope in submitting a bug report?

Viewing a national newspaper site today, Firefox popped up an odd message Continue to installation of Flash player. It then loads (tries) https://performintenselyquickapplication.icu and an ID string. I think I can run Flash already on my browser so why do I have to do this?

The URL worries me, it may be genuine but would like confirmation it is. As mentioned I can already see/use Flash so why the message?

Search for https://performintenselyquickapplication.icu returns nothing other than an Alexa position. Thanks in advance. McP/

Hello. I am having the same issue as another user, but they flagged their question as solved so I'm making a new one just in case.

I can't login properly to YouTube, only in Firefox, even after clearing cache and cookies and disabling add-ons/running safe mode. I can login to my Google account, view my playlists and recommended videos (although the main page with recommendations only shows 5 lines of videos and when scrolling further is not loading). I can't make any edits, for example add videos to the "Watch Later" playlist, that require a login. When I click login, Google shows the 405 error "The request method GET is inappropriate for the URL /youtubei/v1/browse/edit_playlist. That’s all we know." or with other URL, depending on the action taken.

What can I do? Thank you.

Please help me return to being able to print webpages from Firefox to a pdf.

I installed my cd copy of Adobe Standard X when I bought my Windows 10 Thinkpad in December, 2019. It printed webpages to pdf just fine until 4 days ago.

I've attached 4 screenshots:

1) The Firefox error message I now get when I try to print a webpage.

2) This may not be relevant, but this is the page I got saying the screenshot couldn't be saved as a pdf or Word Doc.

3) The printer list in my Windows 10 settings, showing pdf is the default. I don't know if all along Firefox was printing from the version of Adobe I installed or something that came on the laptop.

4) The error message when I experimented to see if I could print to a pdf in Chrome.

Adobe quit supporting Adobe Standard X years ago, so I don't think that's the issue. Oddly, this happened right around the time Microsoft withdrew support from Office 2010, but I can't guess how that might be involved.

When I try to get to Gmail and Facebook, I always have to log in, even though "Save this Browser" is always selected. This causes a problem as I have to have my phone with me for two-step log-ins. This problem started about a month ago, and inquiries to Gmail and Facebook have all gone unanswered. When I do log in, I get a message "We noticed an unusual login from a device or location you don't usually use. Was this you?" This isn't a device I don't normally use, it is one I use most of the time. I don't understand why this is happening and what I can do about it.

Many downloads I do that are big in size always just Fail. I try with other internet browsers and they work perfectly fine. I tried resetting Firefox already and that didn't do anything. I also tried safe mode to see if it was any my add-ons. All to keep failing my files. It only happens with Firefox.
