I always relied on the "+" at the right end of tabs to get a New Tab, but it's disappeared, won't come back on reboot, doesn't seem available as a customization. It's not the greatest problem in the world but it is annoying when handy shortcuts disappear!

March 9, the progress of download status now comes on after each download, not when I simply ask to see the status. this is annoying as it continues to list all downloads during the session. I have to hit the icon to not see the status after each pop-up, this was never a problem until this morning.

Many file types are no longer listed under Settings > Applications>Content Type at about:preferences#general. I used to be able to click on a file in an email like a Word or Excel document, and it would come up on my screen. Now Firefox asks me to Save them. I don't want to automatically save files without first looking at them. How can I get those file types in the Application list again?

I have attached a pic of the file types I have left to chose from. There used to be a lot more. How can I get back all the missing choices I have had there for years?

When I am watching a TV stream on my PC; when I hover on (some) pictures or videos, a supremely annoying pop-up url appears at the bottom of my screen. I have some learning problems and can not figure out the 'userChrome.css' method. I can not work with long streams of multiple overlapping instruction. I am not tech savvy. I do not understand 'layers' and stuff like that. I can do the 'about:config' thing, if anyone knows whether or not if I can fix it from there, I would be eternally grateful. Thanks.

I've used gmail (with multiple email accounts) on Firefox for many, many years. I switch back and forth between my email accounts daily.

In the past few weeks, though, when I try to switch from my primary account to the others, it just defaults back to the primary. I've purged the cache, I've signed out and signed in. This does not happen on Chrome, just Firefox, which is why I've brought it here.

If I change the URL of the mailbox

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox

to

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/1/#inbox

It will take me to another mailbox. I can then change that number to get to the others. But it shouldn't be that way. So ... what is going on? How do I fix it?

I just had a Firefox update today and now when I save a pic or save a video it does a new really annoying drop-down notification at the top from the download icon area which stays there until I manually remove it. In the past I only saw an activity up there when I downloaded programs to my downloads folder, but not when I simply saved an image or video to my other locations. I do not want this stupid dropdown notification appearing, and it's getting bigger and bigger the more pics I save, how do I turn it off? It's ridiculous. I save videos from twitter and images like memes all the time and never have this happen, it just saves it and there is nothing more going on to worry about (which is what I want), it's only started today after the update so it's a new feature. I looked in about:config but I could not work out which setting it is so didn't touch anything. Thanks for your help.

Hello, I am trying to print an email in gmail and this message popped up. " Grrr a pop-up blocker may be preventing the application from opening the page." Is this a gmail or Firefox problem? Probably a dumb question from a not-so-tech-savy user. Thanks for any help. LF

The latest update has made it so Firefox opens the download panel every time I download something, a very obnoxious behavior when downloading a lot of files, and I can't find a way to stop that from happening.

[came across another question that brings up the same issue], but that one focuses more on a site presumably changing about:config rather than the issue of the download panel itself.

Since the last update to Firefox I have not been able to print using the system dialog. Only the new Firefox print screen comes up. How can I return to system printing dialog?

Also the ability to set print quality in the Firefox print screen does not exist. I can do copies, black or color, duplex printing, etc but not set the print quality like draft, text, photo, etc.

I also have many forms I've setup for printing and I can't access these.

Thanks, Pat

CORS error in Firefox incognito mode only

Hi there, I am working on a site with Segment API and need to load their JS on my site for it to work. Whats happening is, I get the following error: "Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://api.segment.io/v1/p. (Reason: CORS request did not succeed). Status code: (null)."

The weird part is, it happens only in Firefox incognito mode. It works on Chrome, Edge, Opera.

I am wondering if this is by design or if it is a bug.

Firefox version 98.0 (64-bit).

Hello,

Please can you tell me how I can click on a word document and for the document to automatically open without having to click the link in my downlaods? See screenshot of the download box that appears in the top right that I have to click to open the word document.

It does it for a PDF document but not for a word document.

I've posted this problem before and did receive replies attempting to help. Unfortunately, the problem has continued for a long time (I think at least a year). I frequently can't access websites (e.g. Yahoo Mail) using Firefox but can using Edge or Brave. With Firefox, I get the following error message:

"Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to login.yahoo.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

I had hoped that the problem would be solved by a Firefox update but that has not happened.

I also regularly get the message "No Internet Connection" while using Firefox but, when I use Edge or Brave while the error message is displayed, there is Internet connection.

I'm using the latest versions of Firefox and Windows 10 Pro.

I've used Firefox for many years and really don't want to have to switch to, say, Brave.

In the past, when ICS files were in a mail, I had been asked what to do, and could open them in OUTLOOK. This option has been apparently cancelled and it only asks where to save the file, without any option to open it directly. Furthermore, when I try to modify it in the "settings" and change it to "Always ask" I can't find no ICS files nor OUTLOOK SCHEDULE files. Please advice. Thanks
