Whenever I try and use any google website I get the PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. Occasionally the pages load up properly but 95% of the time "PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR" will occur. This is getting frustrating as other webpages are loading normally e.g. duckduckgo, amazon. As I use google primarily for browsing and work this is making firefox unusable for me at the moment. I have temporarily switch to Edge which also seems to work fine.

Firefox behavior with virtual desktops in Windows 10

Hello dear Firefox experts,

I have been using Firefox for years and of course I would like to continue doing so. :-)

I work with Windows 10 and have learned to appreciate the virtual desktops, which can be set up via the key combination "Windows + Tab". About the desktops can then be distinguished, for example, in "Office" and "Private".

In total, I have actively set up 4 different desktops.

FF I have set up as the "default app" in the Windows settings.

Now it is the case that I have a Firefox window open in the "private desktop", for example.

But when I work in the "office desktop" and click on a URL, the office desktop automatically switches to the private desktop and opens the URL in the FF already opened there in a new tab! :-(

So I have to remember before to open a new Firefox window in the office desktop to display the desired page also on this desktop.

Unfortunately, this doesn't always work.

If I work in the meantime in another of the 4 active desktops and use Firefox there and return to the office desktop and want to open a URL there again, the desktop jumps back to where I last used the already opened FF. This is quite annoying in the long run.

That's why I ran a test today with Google Chrome and MS Edge and defined each of them as the default app for testing.

Stupidly, these two browsers work exactly as I want them to. If I have already opened one of these browsers in another desktop, the URL will still open in the current desktop and any additional URL as another tab will correctly open in the current desktop.

If I now switch to the private desktop and open a URL there, it will correctly open in a new tab in this desktop.

I hope I was able to illustrate my "problem" so far?

Now my question? How can I change the behavior in FF? This seems to be a standard of FF in contrast to both other browser programs. Disabling in the FF settings "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" seems to be only a rudimentary solution;

but then a new window is opened every time, which is also not useful.


Can something be adjusted in the "deeper" settings?

Many thanks in advance for your tips.

Best regards, Georg

When I attempt to download a large file, for example this one, Firefox often:

  1. consumes my entire available Internet bandwidth, leaving other applications and devices unable to connect to the Internet, or even to other devices on my LAN.
  2. hangs, i.e. the download doesn't show any progress in the Firefox UI

When I attempt to cancel the download, Firefox does not react. Even if I close Firefox, the download continues to absorb the entire available network capacity. The PC (runniong Windows 10 21H2) can not be shut down normally; I can only stop the process by pressing and holding the PC's power button to effect a hard shutdown. When I restart the PC and restart Firefox, Firefox automatically attempts to resume the failed download, with the same results described above. How can I prevent Firefox from hogging all available network capacity for downloads? How can I terminate hung downloads in a more elegant manner? How can I prevent Firefox from attempting to resume failed downloads the next time I start it? I am currently using Firefox 103.0.2. AFAIK, this is also the latest version at this time.

Hello,

When I open my application in Firefox, form elements dissapear, I see onlu blank page, but I have found that at the end of the <div> which displays form elements, I found the attribute <div *my_form_goes_here* style="visibility: hidden !important;"</div> at DOM. I wonder why this is happening and is it the fault of Mozilla or a bug on the frontend side of my application. But at the other browsers this problem do not appear. I tried to open the form in safe mode, incognito, no add-ons, tried to create a new Firefox account, tried without logging in, but none of these options gave the expected result - the tab disappears after I refresh the page. I am asking for help.

Every time I launch Firefox a message appears on the top right corner asking to update with the following text: "Update available Download the latest version of Firefox"

I have never followed this message for I've suspected fake, but it keeps appearing, and every time more and more often along the day (at the beginning it was only once per launch). This keeps occurring in spite of updating to the latest Firefox update (103.0.2) through the "About Firefox" top left menu on my Mac.

Please advise how to get rid of this annoying message. Is this a potential hack or virus attack?

I've only been having it issue since upgrading to Ubuntu 22.04. Firefox (103.0.2) will lock up (not the pc, it will keep working in other apps). It doesn't seem to matter about the number of tabs open, or what sites I'm accessing. It 'seems' random, and closing Firefox and reopening it seems to work for a short while before locking up again. I'm not a tech guru so I don't know exactly what to include here, like logs, or other info. The other issue associated with this issue is, when it locks, and I restart, Firefox does not start the first time I click on it. I have to click on it again and when I do, it will start, but usually (not every time) I get an error message along with the open home page of Firefox. I have to press the (not sure what to call it) windows key and switch to the error to close it. In the past, I've always had a great experience with Firefox, but this is starting to really be annoying! Especially when I have four of five tabs open and have to do a restart. Firefox doesn't seem to realize it's had a problem so the option to re-open tabs with a restart doesn't happen. So I have to use history, which can be troublesome and confusing, to get back to the pages I was reading. I only open multiple tabs most often when I'm researching an issue and want to 'order' the tabs so I read the ones that look like they apply the most to my research topic. So it really is an annoying issue. So much so, that I have been looking to switch browsers. But I really do not like the large commercial entities not to name names, but I may have to suck it up and install the Big G's browser, the Big C! )^: (note: if you respond requesting additional information, please be kind and offer how to obtain the info! Thanks!)

Recently I have noticed that my Firefox browsing keeps disappearing.

In my settings, I have configured Firefox to "Remember history" (see attached screen shot).

The history for my other browsers, e.g., Chrome are *not* disappearing, only for Firefox.

I have seen solution references to index.dat files, but I have found no *relevant* index.dat files on my computer's disk drives.

What steps can I carry out to retain my Firefox history?

But when I shutdown, or restart the operating system, Firefox Sync gives an error that it has been disconnected, forcing me to log in again.

I have tried uninstalling, deleting all profiles in the %appdata% folder of the operating system and reinstalling but still the same error.

The last time I downloaded your update, I think it was in May, 2022, you apparently downloaded the version for Windows 10. It would not work with my windows 7. By the time I got it fixed I had lost ALL my bookmarks, history, etc. Now you are offering the latest download, I believe it is July. I am afraid to download it for fear I might lose all my bookmarks again. Can I just ignore the download. I DO NOT want to go to Windows 10 or 11. I am 95 years old and I like to stick to what I know. What is the situation with you and Windows 7 at this time? Are you no longer offering it? Thanks for your help. You may e-mail me at [removed email from public] PS Even though I supposedly had backed up my bookmarks they would not download to the newest Firefox. I have had Firefox since Firefox 1.0 (October 2004). In fact I still have the original instruction manual and the disk. If you have any need for that for your library I would be happy to send it to you. (In case you couldn't figure it out, I am a string saver). Marjorie Rogers

When I enter YouTube and I try to see comments written to me, it says "'content filtering' has hidden the discussions on this channel". When I try to click on the button to cancel the filtering, it tells me that it cannot be canceled because the filtering is from the network administrator. "Content filtering Enabled by the network administrator to help filter videos that may contain adult content only." It blocks me from any discussion even if it doesn't contain adult content. I switch browsers, open Chrome, and there is no content filtering by the network administrator, but it does show me the discussion that Firefox blocked. Which means the ISP doesn't block me and neither does any other manager except the Firefox browser. I don't have another network administrator, I surf on a private network at home. You need to report the problem to Firefox and they will take care of it.

Thanks.
