I cannot find any way to report problems, this seems to be the only way. When I try to open any PDF file, I have to Browse to find my pdf viewer (Flexipdf 2022). I do that and also check your "Do this automatically" option. Every time I try to open a pdf after that I still have to go through all the same Browse steps. I also set up Flexipdf 2022 in the Applications section of General Settings (Portable Document Format (PDF) (application/pdf)) and it is just deleted or never saved. The next time I look or try to use it, it’s gone. This is obviously a bug in your system, please correct. Thank You.

Firefox 91

See screenshot.

I've been a Firefox user since the days of 2.0. I know what DuckDuckGo is, what search is, what it does and how to use it. I've set this search engine up myself! I don't need a tutorial.

How can I disable this misfeature?

Thanks, Alex

Hello! Something in my Firefox installation seems to be making several Google network (google.com / forcesafesearch.google.com / www.youtube-nocookie.com / m.youtube.com, and a couple of others) calls shortly after launch. I have a DNS sinkhole, so that is how I can see.

I have a few reputable extensions (or should be, from EFF, Firefox itself, or Ublock Origin), but it also happens in safe mode. I went through a good chunk of this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections and still the calls occur

I am on Windows 10, with FF v93.

Thanks very much!

I'm on a macboox pro (intel) with the built in camera and an external camera fuji (not connected).

When I start a google meeting or skype call firefox wants to use the external camera and I don't see any options to use the internal camera.

If I try the same thing in Safari browser it works perfectly.

How do I tell firefox which camera to use?

Hi, When I run Firefox and use YoutubeTV I get slowness from internet. When I run YoutubeTV on Edge no problems. I have tried running it on Firefox in safe mode and with Bitdefender disabled still have issue. Please see attached screen shots. The delays of up to 3 seconds cause browser slowness when I try to browse to get details of something I am watching like on IMBD etc. I have been a long time user of Firefox and really don't like having to use Edge as my YoutubeTV browser.

Hi, I have set my default application for .pdf to be Microsoft Edge. So for example, when I open a .pdf in the file explorer it opens up in the Edge browser. When I open a .pdf in the download menu in Firefox the file does open in a pdf-explorer version of Edge. That is Edge will kinda open a new application just to show the .pdf, with no options for tabs or in general work as a web browser, it will only be a .pdf viewer. I would prefer for Firefox to open the .pdf in the normal Edge browser. Is there any way I can fix that?

11.27.21

iMac - OS10.11.6 El Capitan - Firefox 78.15

I have spent hours searching internet and Mozilla support. Nothing. All I want to do is switch my sign in accounts. I have two. Firefox confirms this. When I go into Accounts, following existing procedures to establish a second sign in, I type in second email with response telling me this account already exists. I know that. I can even see it in the Passwords/Accounts section.

But nothing, nothing appears anywhere telling me how I can simply switch from existing sign in to the other. Nothing.

If anyone at Firefox would care to explain the secret, I would appreciate it so I can stop wasting time searching this solution.

Don't use euphemisms like some instructions do which only confuse simple answers. Please simply state Step 1, Step 2 etc

One such support page said something like select one account and click "Preferred" or the like. Saw nothing like this in my Account settings.

thanks Larry

As the subject describes, installing Bing Wallpaper causes the vanishment of icons of the six default search engines in my region (China Mainland), i.e. Baidu, Wikipedia (actually the icon of Wikipedia is still there), Bing, Google, Amazon and DuckDuckGo, but these search engines themselves are still usable though. It is probably caused because I chose the choice that setting Bing as my default search engine of all browsers and the application (Bing Wallpaper) reset all those engines. I have tried removing these engines from my settings list then adding them back, but the icons are still invisible. I have not tried to uninstall and reinstall my Firefox.

Hi there,

I have a Firefox account which was registered using an email associated with a company I no longer work for. Since I have left the company, that email is inactive and I can no longer access it. This means that when I attempt to log into Firefox with that account, I cannot enter the verification / 2FA code because I cannot access the email.

Is there anyway I can close that Firefox account anyway? I do have the Firefox recovery key for that account though. I just wish for all the data associated with said account to be deleted.

Thanks
