Hello, I want to open a PDF directly from Firefox - the university makes several uploads via the official website and in order not to waste time, I would like to click on it to open the PDF, it would already be opened.

If I, for example use Google as search engine, it always requires me to accept cookies. Then if I have accepted the cookies and go to one of the found pages, read it and go back to the search, Firefox tries to load the same popup window again, but fails. When I open a new tab and reenter the search phrase, the same window for accepting cookies appears. I think this problems have appeared after the latest update to version 82.0.3; not sure if I have changes some preference. My compter is an old MacBookPro with OS 10.13.6. In previous versions, I have been asked now and then to accept google's privacy rules. The similar problems appears for other sites, for example sanoma.com, where I have chosen to accept only the necessary cookies, not third party, analytics, etc. When I open a link and go back, the same question appears again, but for these sites it does not hang up, as in the google case. I mostly use private browsing window, and have better privacy and similar extensions activated.

Hi,

I tried to remote control firefox with the Selenium WebDriver and Java fio testing purposes. This ended in some instances of crashed or otherwise leftover running instances of the geckodriver.

I restarted my computer (Win 10) and started Firefox (no remote software started this time).

And now, whenever I start Firefox, it says it is remotely controlled (Robot icon / Orange bar).

How can I start Firefox in un-controlled mode again (so that ie: I can login into google again)?

(Addons = none) Thanks for help.

I've been having this issue for the past couple weeks, and I don't really know how to fix it. It seems to have come from nowhere, and my timezone is set to be 5 hours ahead of mine (I am in EST). My timezone is configured correctly on my system (Windows 10), and this is the only program I have an issue with timezones. How do I fix this?

In the plugin "facebook Container" I have made a new "tab category" called "social media" with a blue sign. The problem is that firefox continues to open FB in the old category even if I delete it, which is also very hard to do as I have to close all my FB-tabs to be able to delete it in the options tab. Next time I use firefox or a few days later firefox has again undeleted the old FB category and again opens my FB tabs in black tabs instead of my new blue tabs. I can´t use my own new tab category as long as the old one is there and it keeps comming back after I delete it. Very annoying to say the least! Please fix this error as soon as posible, thank you.

I use a particualr website almost every day. Up until recently I was able to navigate, via a navigation pane within the site, to any one of eight sub sites via the appropriate links. This no longer works and I am 'dumped' back to the base web page. This only happens with Firefox. If I use a competitor web browser (!) the internallinks work as programmed.

Firefox is my browser of choice,but is currently unusable for my needs- please help!

I am not sure if this is a hardware problem or Firefox problem but I only seem to see the behavior in Firefox. The browser screen will suddenly white out most of the text on screen and compress or distort the open tab labels. The screen captures below illustrate the problem better than I can explain it. I have updated, refreshed, uninstalled/reinstalled to no avail. Problem appeared suddenly and now happens consistently. It happened while typing this message. Top screen cap is normal browser window, middle is same page after error, bottom capture is the page I was writing this post on after another occurrence of the error.

I noticed that after Firefox is running for more then a few days it starts buffering my typing. Lags behind at least 10 - 20 seconds while I type and I am not that fast. I assume this is not normal. Any ideas on what may be causing this? If I close the app and reopen it goes away. Ver 82.0.3 on a Apple iMac.

Whenever I open Firefox it opens a new tab for a brief moment then closes it and opens my previous tabs from my last session. I have this setting unchecked in the settings. I think that it is crashing and trying to restore my pages because of that, but there are no crash reports when I visit about:crash. I am running the latest version of Firefox and windows 10.
