It appears firefox just rolled out an update that allows you to fill-out/edit PDFs, which is great except for the fact that there seems to be no way to go back to the standard viewer.

The editor broke my PDFs, text is missing in fields, some other text is overlaid on top of other and overall its quite a terrible experience. I am certain that this will be fixed over time, but is there any way to go back on the meantime?

No images attached since all the PDF documents I edit have some degree of private/confidential information.

... nor does middle clicking on a tab cause it to close. i had this problem a few years ago and cannot remember how I fixed it ( unless it was to toggle about.config

browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick=true to false and back to true again) That did not work this time around.

Problem arose on my Win10 machine when left on overnight for Win upgrade, though the mouse driver seems to be a generic MS one from 2006. Have tried loading Logitech Options and selecting the required radio button for middle click/new tab but no luck.

I just updated my iMac 27" 2017 from catalina to big sur and now firefox ( 83.0) constantly crashes the OS and forces reboot. I have confirmed it is Firefox issue by using Safari and Chrome for multiple days now and had no issues. I did a firefox refresh, reinstalled fresh add-ins (flag fox, no script) and still crashes. I disabled and then removed all add-ins and still have the issue. Just having firefox open results in reboot over night.

Как насчёт добавления возможности пополнять список блокируемых трекеров и фингерпринтов своими списками? Или-же такая возможность есть? Тут скорее просьба к mozilla, добавьте это пожалуйста. Мне нравится статистика сбора трекеров, и я считаю её полезной. При включении privacy possum/badger статистика с них не будет собираться, то-есть вся эта панель состояния защиты становится бесполезной, ибо количество трекеров в списках этих расширений больше раза в два. Хотелось-бы получить большую безопасность и удобность, особенно если в теории это является одной из целей нынешнего Firefox, и если это возможно.

I use FireFox portable 82.0.3 . When I select it as the default browser it sets the .pdf reader for the whole Windows OS as Firefox reader. I have the .pdf reader set in Windows as Adobe Reader. I also use Opera browser & some of the time I set it as the default browser. Opera doesn't change the .pdf reader when set to default browser. I know how to change it back to Adobe Reader in Windows but this is inconvenient every time I select FireFox browser as the default. I even set the Options/Applications to Portable Document Format (PDF) Use Adobe Reader in FireFox. If using FireFox & looking at a .pdf online FireFox uses Adobe Reader. When I click a .pdf in Windows the Windows uses the FireFox reader until I change Windows back to Adobe Reader. I would like to stop FireFox from setting the .pdf reader to FireFox reader everytime I choose FireFox as the default browser.

However, that doesn't happen.

Steps to Reproduce: 1. Launch Firefox (Windows or Ubuntu) 2. Type "sennheiser" in the address bar 3. Click a custom search provider's icon (e.g. Wikipedia)

Expected Result: A list of search results on Wikipedia or the Sennheiser Wikipedia page.

I want to stop hackers from making changes to my browser settings that shuts off my firewall and anit-virus. i want to know what they are changing to accomplish this. A simple refresh of Firefox (it would be a reset of any other browser) alleviates the problem, so I know it is in here. I don't think sharing my data will offer anything as the browser has been 'refreshed' but will if someone thinks it will help.

Hello. I downloaded a Netgear driver update utility zip file (??) and for some reason I got confused when it said it would open it with Windows Explorer... and I decided to have it opened with Firefox instead. To add dumb insult to dumb injury, I checked the box to have downloads do that with ALL files like that going forward. If i click on that downloaded file, more than 175 tabs open up before i can make it stop. How do I undo this? Thank you kindly in advance

Windows 7.

Firefox and only he is seen in the active use of the lsass process. If you open an empty firefox browser with no tabs or only settings tabs, then the lsass process does not consume anything. However, if you open any tab with the Internet, the lsass process begins to consume from 1 to 6 percent of the processor, for a while. On some pages there is more, on others less, it happens that it constantly consumes 4+, sometimes it sags a little to 1-2. However, any tab opening and internet manipulation leads to this result - lsass consumes CPU resources. Does not depend on the presence of add-ons, I put the regular and portable versions 81 82 83.

This behavior of the lsass process does not occur in any other browser that I have been able to install. Be it chrome, opera, avant, waterfox tor browser, vivaldi, and others. On another computer completely zero, this process is also used, although a little faster, but also every time the page is opened, there is a load on the processor from lsass.

I posted this problem back when v.80.0 was out. It was later fixed, but now it's back.

Loading an external bookmark as the default start page in v.83.0 and using it as the default bookmark (file:///C:/Mine/Testing/BOOKMARK.HTM) creates an error.

The error is that clicking on any url in the bookmark to visit and then clicking the top left arrow to return will always bring you to the top of the bookmark. It used to bring you back to the same location on the bookmark. Now, it brings you back to the top of the bookmark. Thus making it necessary to scroll back down to the location (url) you just visited. Really annoying to have to keep do this in order to return to your original location in the bookmark.

Hope someone can help again.

I recently changed from Ubuntu Gnome to KDE Plasma. Now, when I'm running Firefox (v83) and click "Save as" to save a file from a web page, Firefox gives me a file list with directories mixed in alphabetically, rather than at the top. This is new behavior to me; I don't know if it's new with v83 (I was previously running v82), or if it's a KDE implementation issue.

Either way, I HATE having to scroll down through page after page of files and folders to find my destination folder. Since the dialog box also incorporates full-row select, I can't even click in the file list and type the first letter of my destination folder.

Please tell me there is a way to change this behavior and have Firefox's "Save as" dialog sort the files with directories at the top!

Thanks.

Hi, every time I'm on Youtube, Firefox loads the page 2 times and when I try to go back o the previous page it reloads the current: For example I play video #1, then I click in another video it opens the video #2 page, if I click the back page button even without playing video #2 it reloads video #2 page.

The second problem with Youtube is the audio: sometimes when playing a video suddenly on background it restart the audio of the video and it plays together, and if I pause the video the "first audio" stop but the second keeps going.

Already tried the fix audio solution but nothing changed, also cleared cache etc....
