My FF is set so that PDF files are downloaded automatically. In principle, this should remain that way. Now, however, I would like a few PDF files from my own disk to be opened directly instead. I have thought up a workaround for this - which unfortunately (STILL?) doesn't work properly:

1) The files in question (so far only one, as a test) are renamed *.PXX. 2) In Win I have defined that these *.PXX files should NOT be opened with my generally used PDF programme, but with Adobe Acrobat. This WORKS. 3) Now I had to define in FF that PXX should be treated differently from PDF. I haven't managed to do that yet - the files are still written to the download folder - RENAMED *.PDF 4) Meanwhile I found some (as far as I know) "unused" extensions in FF, amog them *.IRC. So, I renamed my *.PXX-file *.IRC and defined in FF that *.IRC-files should be opend by Adobe Acrobat. 5) NEVERTHELESS - disregarding this definition - the *.IRC-files are NOT opened but "downloaded" to the download-folder AND renamed *.PDF

Does anyone haven an idea?

While I appreciate the recent improvements to the Firefox Print interface and features, there are still lingering formatting issues that have existed for a very long time. The most common issue is that portions of content get cut off between pages. Here is one example:

https://www.nolas.com/home/#menus - click FOOD category near top - open Print (does not matter if "Save to PDF" or printer is selected) - default print settings

In the print preview (left side), printed page or saved PDF there are missing parts of text: - beginning of page 4 cuts off from "SHARE PLATES" to half-way through the first item's description. - top of page 8 (under "NOLA CLASSICS") one of the 6 items is missing entirely.

This issue remains even when using different scale factors.

Tested on current software: - Firefox 86.0.1 (new profile) - macOS 10.12 -through- 10.15

Showing all passwords in a list view as it was in the old password manager was really helpful. I tried to install this: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3062276

But unfortunately with the newest Firefox 84 it is not working anymore. I get an error message.

Is there any other possibility to reactivate the old password manager? There are countless of people and threads on the internet wanting this feature back. Mozilla made a step backwards here unfortunately.

Thank you for your help!

Hi,

Due to issues with a windows update, my computer went through 2 clean installs recently. After the first one, I was able to download Firefox, log in, and sync all my previous extensions and bookmarks. However, after the second clean install, I just logged into Firefox and it did not bring up any of my previous bookmarks or extensions. Where did they go? How can I get them back?

Please help. Thanks,

Hi

I’ve been trying to access some sites for a couple of weeks or more (from the last update) and an unsafe connection is identified to me. The page has no possibility to send Mozilla any feedback. The paradox is that even the forum Mozillaitalia.org results with an unsafe connection.

What to do in order to be able to enter the sites in which I have always entered and which are now unsafe?

A few days ago Microsoft Print to PDF stopped working properly in Firefox 87.0 (64 bit) running in Windows 10. Microsoft Print to PDF functions properly in Chrome, Internet Explorer, Excel/Word/Outlook, etc.

As attached, in Firefox after pressing CTL-P (or select File>Print) the print preview window is displayed. When I click Print a PDF file is created. When I open that file I receive the attached error message advising that the file cannot be opened, etc.

I have executed many of the recommended solutions; none of resolved the issue. I refreshed Firefox; that did not resolve the issue. I uninstalled Firefox, deleted the Mozilla folder in APPDATA rebooted and reinstalled Firefox; that did not resolve the issue.

No recent software installations or upgrades, etc.

Thanks in advance for your recommendations, Bill

Items in my Bookmarks toolbar (and the overflow bookmarks list) keep rearranging themselves. I put them back in order, then every time I open Firefox, they rearrange again. I've read through and tried everything suggested in the discussions and articles except the refresh, with I'd prefer not to do if it's not absolutely necessary. Nothing else suggested has worked. Any help will be appreciated. I believe this started after the last Firefox update. This is getting frustrating to the point I'm ready to stop using Firefox altogether. Thank you!

Hi!

Does WebRender gets disable by default in Firefox 87 Snap?

I use Firefox as an Ubuntu Snap. In Firefox 86 (snap version) I got WebRender enable by default, I check the about:support and run some benchmark to confirm that WebRender was enable and everything seems good! But now with this update I no longer have webrender enable by default, I test the apt package of firefox 87 and webrender is enable by default in Ubuntu 20.10.

Can someone please confirm that WebRender is disable by default on the snap version of FF 87 and why?

Starting about a week ago, Firefox has had periods where it would freeze for about 5 seconds, followed by working normally for about 10 seconds. In between cycles of freezing, there would also be periods where it functioned normally. The freezing doesn't seem to be triggered by anything specific. It happens when I'm scrolling, typing, or even sometimes when I'm doing nothing at all on a page. This also happens whether or not I have other programs open that could be slowing things down. According to task manager, I have plenty of spare CPU and RAM when it happens. I've tried turning off hardware acceleration, recreating the places file, and checking session restore as per this help article. It has also happened after restarting Firefox, so it shouldn't be a problem with that.

Trying to install/run Firefox on new iMac.

Downloaded the most recent version. Clicked on installer icon. Dragged the icon to app folder. Seemed to install. Ejected installer. App folder shows only a 2k alias,,,no "program". Click app icon. Installation icon reappears on desktop and process starts all over again!!!

On old iMac the app shows as a 375Mb application!

Any help would be appreciated as I have no hair left to pull out.

PS: the iMac won't let Chrome run either. Says it can't be opened because Apple can't check for malicious software, even though install process verified the disk image!!!

As the feedback option via help is unavailable at the moment, I'd like to give feedback on ways to improve the new Print Preview dialogue box. After using it for a while, I quite like the general concept, however the design has some flaws that could make it more user friendly. This is my wishlist. It would be great for others to add their ideas but please avoid the negative option of going back to the old dialogue, as that has been expressed in many other threads.

1. Add Simplify Page - I think this is in progress 2. Condense the dialogue box, there is too much white space. If it was more compact, every option could be visible removing the need for the "More settings.." extra click. 3. Rework/expand the Pages options. Currently there is only "all" or "custom". Bring it into line with the Windows dialogue and offer "Page 1" and "Selection". Maybe also a drop down list. In essence, having to type the specific pages should be the last resort. 4. The ability to choose the printer's "Tray" is missing (or hidden too well). 5. When the user is trying to choose a scaling option eg 80% or 90%, if the number is entered and then "enter" pressed, suddenly the document starts to print. Often scaling takes some trial and error, and pressing "enter" should not send the document to the printer. 6. The Scaling option should be higher in the box. It is more frequently used than Orientation etc. 7. I would prefer (others may disagree) that the dialogue default to the settings on the printer, regardless of what was changed last time. Instead of being confident that the page will default to my normal printing settings (eg tray 2, greyscale, one-sided etc), now I have to check the printer settings for every print, because it has probably remembered one small change made for the previous print session.

Please add to the list if you have constructive suggestions, or disagree with mine, and hopefully the feedback will be picked up...
