Lately, when I try to create a desktop shortcut from the Github website, it instead create a folder, with the correct title of the page, and what looks like a link inside, with an abbreviated website name, but is not a shortcut at all.

Example: Try dragging the address bar padlock from this page to your desktop

Welcome to Refined GitHub!

Same thing happens when I try to drag its bookmark to the desktop.

Creating the shortcut from Chrome works properly, so I assume this is a Firefox problem.

Hi guys. I'm on a Lenovo laptop, using Windows 11. Was NOT experiencing this issue (or any other issues) till today. That is, I've been able to download PDFs attached to Yahoo email for years, including recently (till today).

Trying to get Firefox to be DEFAULT instead of MS Edge, I changed some 'Apps associated with File Types', selecting Firefox as default for all file types that seemed appropriate, BUT, this issue then began.

Feeling I went too far, and should go step at a time, I reset All File Type settings back to default (MS recommended settings). Still can't open attached PDFs. I tried an Excel attachment and it opened fine.

Error I get is: "Firefox Can’t Open This Page To protect your security, dl-mail.ymail.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window."

The emails I used to recreate the error, were sending an email to myself, and attaching a PDF.

Other things I tried: I used Firefox with gmail email and the PDF attachment downloaded fine. I used MS Edge with Yahoo email and PDF attachment downloaded fine. Also, btw, CAN view a PDF attachment with Yahoo email. Just now download.

I CAN "open it in a new window" as the error suggests, than print to PDF, but don't want to live the rest of my life doing that.

Thanks in advance for any help that can be offered!!

Win 10, Developer Edition 103.0b2

This update caused everything to increase in size. Tabs & toolbars are much bigger now. Toolbar and bookmarks toolbar used to fit in the window with no overflow, now both have a lot of items in overflow.

Sites that used to fit at 100% zoom now have to be reduced to 80% or 67% to fit on-screen.

Just wondering what could cause this behavior? Settings?

Note: Browser window is fully maximized and no other program on my Win10 box has this issue.

I had set up a userContent.css file in the past to pull up and fetch an image on my computer to display as a background on the homepage. It worked and did it's job until recently, when I had recently relocated a lot of my files around on my computer. I have redirected everything to where I want it to look, including the userContent.css file to the new location for the image I want as the background. Firefox loads the .css file correctly, and recognizes the file existing, but it won't load the image itself for some odd reason. It states it "may not load or link the file" because of a security error, and thus, can't load the image. I never had to deal with this before. How can I get Firefox to be able to load my image like I want it to? I have screenshots that I can provide, but this site doesn't want to upload them at the moment.

This question has to do with logging into web sites with an email and a password. Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit). Windows 10.

On many sites, when I click in the email field, a drop down list of email addresses appears from which I can make a selection using the mouse or up/down arrow keys. Some web sites have as few as two email addresses in the drop down list, others have many more. I recall that one site has about fifteen email addresses in the drop down list.

How can I remove a non-applicable email address from the drop down list?

How can I clear the drop down list of all email addresses?

Thanks.

When logging into my financial institutions website it reports back that I have version 91... of the Firefox browser installed and that it isn't supported. I actually have version 101.0.1 as reported by the browser itself. I called them and they asked me to check my version of Firefox by using www.whatismybrowser.com and it reports back that I'm running version 91. Can you help?

I've just had my browsing interrupted with this recommendation to install an extension: https://torrent-protection.com/download-now/

I was viewing this page: https://www.eurogamer.net/with-the-new-ps-plus-premium-and-extra-sony-opts-for-the-car-boot-sale-approach-to-catalogue-gaming

I was taken out of the page without pressing anything and taken to this recommendation. In particular, it appears like an official Firefox message and security recommendation, with Firefox suggesting I should install this extension for my security. Sadly I don't have a screenshot but it's happened twice this morning already.

Is this really Firefox endorsed? Or are they pushing their extension with fake credentials? How is the page viewing interrupted this way and diverted automatically to another webpage?

Audio was working fine until recently. Now, firefox has no audio playing on any site.

Some sites show "PLAYING" in tab, but others like YouTube don't show that notification. Even with "PLAYING", there is no audio output.

I checked Windows settings and Firefox is set up correct (and the same as it was before it stopped working), see screenshot attached. Otherwise, I restarted Firefox, tried it in troubleshoot mode, and reinstalled Firefox. No changes.

Possible system changes include: Maybe a Firefox update occured and broke the program? I installed the game Civ5 from Steam which required some Windows VS redistributibles installed.

I have tried all of the suggested solutions here at Mozilla for how to delete a website URL from being autofilled: whenever I type 'pre', the autofill function fills in the rest of the website 'www.preply.com'. It was a horrible ESL teaching scam website, I only taught through it for a month last November then quit when they ripped me off. But now since last November, any time I type in 'pre'–I invariably see their annoying, shitty website :-( It is very annoying because it was a bad employer experience–and now I cannot ever remove them from Firefox :-(

I tried deleting it in the address bar with shift + delete, then also went into some obscure Firefox folder and deleted some file with Firefox closed (this was the supposed "solution"–it did NOT work).

Is there any way to solve this incredibly annoying issue? Or should I just switch to Chrome or Safari and give up? Very disappointed in how impossible Firefox makes deleting autofill URLS, really, REALLY BAD software programming. Any helpful or solution greatly appreciated thx :-)
