Hi Mozilla community,

I just finished a new PC (Win10 Pro) some days ago and setup Firefox mailto. After I changed e-mail program to Outlook (Office 2019) and clicked on send link via e-mail it automatically opens endless e-mail windows and blank tabs until the PC crashes. The process cannot be stopped. Reinstallation could not solve the problem.

Does anyone has an idea? I could only find a similar problem some years ago but it is no solution for my problem https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1212933#answer-1098427

Default setting was google mail. Is this how it should be or did Chrome installation caused that?

Thanks

I started using Firefox on a Windows 10 laptop. I checked Task Manager as the computer is slow. It shows 6 instances of Firefox, all 6 using memory, with one of them showing CPU usage.

Is this "normal"? Is this how Firefox works? Thanks.

Why are there Chrome .idb files in my Firefox 85 browser? I've never used Chrome browser and don't have Chrome installed. These idb files take up a large amount of space. Also when first downloaded 85 seemed pretty fast. Now, after a few days it is back to being pretty slow. Could this Chrome stuff be effecting my browser in an adverse way?

My [- 100% +] zoom buttons have disappeared. I use them all the time, and now they are not there, just a big white space between the Home icon and the Show Bookmarks icon. Zooming still functions with the menu or hotkeys (Command + and Command -), but the menu bar buttons are gone, and clicking in the sopace where they should be does nothing.

I've tried safe mode, restarting Firefox, and rebooting. Nothing seems to restore them.

Any suggestions?

The Network tab in the Developer Tools can be activated only when a page is already open. We have an application that opens a document in a new window. I can enable network logging on the main page, but when I click to open the document nothing is displayed. To see the very start of the log for the document page, I'm too late, the Network tab is empty. I can reload the page, but that wouldn't be the real situation.

My questions: Is there an option to activate the Network log right from the start of a page? -or- Is there a way to have ONE big Network log, with all pages combined??

Thank you for an excellent browser!

I wanted to print a pdf that I opened/loaded in Firefox. Using the firefox print dialogue, I printed the file with 'Colour Mode' set to 'Black and white'. The document, however, was printed using colours.

Im using Firefox 85.0 on Mac OS 10.14.6.

Any ideas why this happened? Must I just use the system print dialogue?

Firefox Developer Edition 85.0b4, macOS 10.15

If I Google for a PDF and click a link, I get the Firefox download dialog. If I select "Open with Firefox [Developer Edition]", the following things happen:

  • The PDF is downloaded to ~/Downloads
  • The PDF is opened in a new tab, with that new tab's location bar holding a file:///... URL to the downloaded PDF

What I would instead like to happen is:

  • The PDF is downloaded to some temporary directory where I won't have to worry about deleting it manually
  • In whatever tab the PDF is displayed in, the location bar contains the URL where the PDF was (temporarily!) downloaded from

How can I achieve this?

Not having the URL where a PDF was opened from is very annoying when, for example, I open a bunch of PDF search results to read and review, and I later want to share links to some of those PDFs. Best I can do to find their URLs to give to others is then to try and remember which tab corresponds to which search result, or do mine the downloads tab.

Contrast this with Chrome: I click a Google result for a PDF and the PDF just opens in the current tab with the URL to the PDF in the location bar. No dialogs, no PDF files hanging around in my home directory, and I can just copy the URL to the PDF the same way I'd copy the URL to any web page.

Thank you!

Im working for my government posting applies to this certain website: https://voucher.gov.gr/ui/project/37/personal

When an apply is completed i printed on pdf to save locally.

This was fine till Firefox update 85.00 ( i jumped from 83.00 to 85.00, i don't know why. but i can reproduce it even on 84.00.

) When i tried to save as pdf, the character encoding of upper part of page (i think its header) you should defently see the exact same page to found out why ( https://voucher.gov.gr/ui/project/37/personal ) is appear with squares and the characters is losted, and unavailable. ( you can see here: https://imgur.com/a/W3g0Tz6 )

Also After the updated version for PRINT DIALOG (the new one) the new dialog, is not showed up, (see image)

if you are updating from old version with old profile. 

I had to delete the old profile to appear the new dialog, and there is no setting to get the new one, from old one.

On Firefox prior to 84.00: ( on 83.00 for example) this issue is not there ( and the page has not change at all), the save to pdf was working perfectly, and the characters as shown on the image, is perfectly grabbed and saved. I could not find any other website to replicate this issue so please, invest it here..

thank you.

When Firefox asks if I want to download an update and I agree, soon after that but not right away it stops working - on every new page it says "we need to restart to finish updating" <- this last bit is VERY annoying. Is there a way to keep FF working in such situation? I usually have 3 FF profiles running, about 10-20 tabs each and when it suddenly does this - I can restart them all but when it is suitable for me.

The only solution I can see so far is disabling updates via group policies (which is not well documented, where do i put this policies.json on fedora? need to google that).

Any other ways to keep updates and FF running until I decide when to restart? Thanks.

Hello, We run a website that uses a bookmarklet button which allows us to capture the current URL location and save it. This is placed on the Tool Bar where its easy for a user to use. Until now, its been working perfectly but with this latest update to FireFox we are seeing the pop-up blocking being activated with the yellow message bar at the top. Now this would be ok if we only had to allow the pop up once (by clicking allow site), but unfortunately the bookmarket button has to be able to work on all sites, which is the whole point of the button. So its impractical to keep allowing it every time its used. Disabling the pop-up blocker completely then works, but then the browser is open to other pop-ups. Is there any way to allow bookmarklets to display a pop up and not display a pop-up message? Without having to disable the entire pop-up functionality. Can the FF developers allow for user placed bookmarklets to not be pop-up blocked. Maybe an exception added for that. They are placed manually by the user so are allowed by the user only.

Thanks for reading. Paul.

Hello dear support! I would like to immediately warn you that I used Yandex translator to write the text, so there may be grammatical errors :) I've been using Firefox for a very long time and I'm happy with everything. But recently I have encountered the" problem " of opening tabs, it has always been there, but I am not comfortable using it.When you search for material intensively by links, when you open any link on the search page by clicking the left mouse button or using the right mouse button "open link in a new tab", in both cases a new tab opens, it throws there and you have to move back to the search page from the opened tab and open another link that I also need, which is inconvenient. In this regard, a question. Is there a setting in the browser so that by clicking on the right button I do not go to an open tab, but it opens itself, and I immediately open new links without going to them initially and I would decide which one to go to first. This feature is implemented in Opera, but I want to stay with Firefox.

Sincerely, Mr. Mozdor
