When I click the Google search result the left button, it looks like it it the new tab is opened and the one with google results is closed.

absolutely unexpected behavior. And it happens only with facebook site, other work as expected.

In Chrome this behavior is also not reproduced (so this is not Google).

What it could be?

Hello,

I really enjoy Firefox, but lately I've been having to go back to Chrome to get things done. The latest is that when I view a PDF in the browser the option to download the file does nothing. I then tried the same website on Google Chrome, the button worked and I was able to download the file.

I tried setting Firefox to open the PDF in Acrobat but there were no changes. I also tried using Firefox in Private mode in case an extension was causing a problem.

The website is the county records search site for Miami, Florida. Search for any name, view a record, the click on Document image. A PDF opens in the browser with a print option, and a download option. The download option does nothing when clicked on. Do the same on Google Chrome, then it does work.

Thanks for any help!

What can I do about Firefox is freezing for 3-15 secondsand displaying jumbled web pages showing random black rectangles and squares jumping around?

Since downloading 76.0.1 on my mac laptop Firefox freezes every few minutes and somtimes jumbles up web pages showing black boxes flickering and jumping around. It is quiet alarming. I've gone through the recommended fixes three times now but the problems persist. I've also reinstalled Adobe Flash Player and Duckduckgo as well as Firefox. I thought the problem could be flash because the freezing occurs most often when I am playing a word game. I tried taking a screen shot but the mouse is frozen while firefox is hung up. The jumbled pages can be anything but it seems that it's mostly pages with images. The problem occurs in safe mode, too. I am not having similar issue with Safari.

After years of Chrome, I'm giving up. I'm going back to Firefox but I see that in the latest version the tabs across the top prevent me from moving my window around (unless I go to the far upper right or left corner of the browser). WHY? I have a lot of tabs open, and I need to easily move the browser window around. I don't understand developing a browser that prevents it.

Please go back to letting us move the browser around more readily.

Hey thanks! Ivan

Stop message telling me to update firefox to a new version

I have seen similar requests but they all seem to go down some dirt road and leave the topic.

First the issue I am having is with Firefox v72 on the Windows 10 computer provided by work. This company has thousands of employees and the IT department is not responsive.

My issue: Every time I launch Firefox a pop-up window appears telling me that Firefox can't update to the latest version. This message reappears periodically throughout the day. I would like to prevent this or at least have it occur 1 time a week or month. I have tried adjusting the advanced settings but nothing seems to fix this issue and frankly I do not even see a change in the duration of the message.

Now before the folks concerned about security "recommend" that I should update to the latest version because it is the safest and best version, please understand that I do know. A large office with many users, OSes, computers, apps in use apparently does not have the flexibility needed to keep the Firefox browser happy. I certainly can't force the IT department to update Firefox (I have asked).

I'd love for Mozilla to give us control of this feature again, but I am not counting on it. So I am hoping that someone reading this has found a solution that will work for V72 of Firefox.

Each browser has issues, this one is minor, an annoyance for me. My continuing to use this browser depends on more than this issue. When I consider Pros and Cons of this browser this goes in the Cons column.

I've been editing userContent.css and userChrome.css for the last couple days and I've got a lot of stuff working. I can't however figure out how to change the logo on about:privatebrowsing to be a custom image. Here is my current code:

/*** PRIVATE BROWSING ***/

@-moz-document url(about:privatebrowsing) {

/* Changes the logo on the home screen*/
.logo {
  background: url("Firefox Halo with Paw.png") no-repeat center center !important;
}

.logo-and-wordmark {
  align-items: center !important;
  display: flex !important;
  justify-content: center !important;
  margin-bottom: 49px !important;
}

/* Changes the home screen color */
html.private {
    --in-content-page-background: #261010 !important;}
}

I've tried using a relative path to the image for the non-private browsing section, but since private browsing is a protected area, I can't load in the image from a link.

I've installed Firefox on my MacBook Air laptop, but every time I turn off my computer, the icon to access Firefox disappears from my shortcuts bar and I have to go back to my downloads folder, double click on the "Firefox 75.0.dmg" file and re-install Firefox. Meanwhile, all my bookmarks on Firefox are lost and have to start everything anew like a new customer each day. My membership email is the only thing that is retained therefore day-to-day. I've checked the settings and have even made Firefox my default browser but that hasn't helped. I should add that I also have Express VPN. When I add Firefox to the ExpressVPN's shortcuts, again it stays there only until I turn off the computer. Meanwhile, Google Chrome and my email icons remain on the VPN startup window and don't go away as does Firefox. Jacob
