Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

I have been using Firefox's built-in screenshot taking capability for years now and love it. However, since I purchased a new macbook air a few months ago and installed Firefox on that device, I notice something strange. When I go into setting and change the default location for Firefox to save downloads, the screenshots I take still end up being saved to my desktop instead of the download folder. On my old Macbook pro that I had been using for >4yrs this was never an issue.

I have tried resetting this but it does not seem to work. Any idea what is the issue?

For some reason yesterday Firefox stopped opening PDF documents using Acrobat. I have checked the settings and Acrobat is set as the default application. I tried changing this to "always ask" it made no difference and forces saving the file.

I read various articles on this forum and have opened the profile folder and deleted/renamed files. It didn't work. I've cleared the cache. It didn't work. I've tuned up it didn't work.

It's becoming very cumbersome and annoying. I don't want to save every file before downloading it, I want PDF files to open in Acrobat

We upgraded to latest Firefox version and noticed that jnlp files that used to download and open automatically doesn't work as expected. We know there is a new logic about download/open files in this Firefox version, but why the jnlp files are automatically downloaded but the file downloaded doesn't have any extension, then it cannot be opened with the associated program (javaws)?

The file is named frmservlet.jnlp and Firefox warns about that file extension, however once is downloaded it's named as frmservlet (no extension).

Hi,

when I want to connect my phone via QR-Code, first, the WhatsApp-Web-Site reloads rapidly for some seconds and then the screen goes back to the inicial WA-Site, stating:

"A database error occurred on your browser. Please restart your computer and relink your device."

I did that, but no help. I also tried the debugging-mode, also without any positive effect.

I didn´t found much about this issue on the internet, but I know, that several people have the same problem, which occours since one week, about right after the new WhatsApp-Update and the last Firefox-Update. The only two topics I found are:

[https://www.reddit.com/r/whatsapp/com.../whatsapp_web_doesnt_work_on_my_ipad_with_ios_12/] https://www.reddit.com/r/whatsapp/comments/ttkkuv/whatsapp_web_doesnt_work_on_my_ipad_with_ios_12/

[https://community.brave.com/t/web-wha.../362249]

Please let me know if someone has a workaround.

Best regards,

Lutz

My debugging information is attached. Unfortunatly, its in German, but you can translate it with deepl.com:
