Why, whenever there is an update, do you insist on changing one of the PDF actions to "SAVE" instead of my set preference of "Open in Adobe PDF reader" This happens every time you do an update causing me to reset it. Stop messing with my set preferences. Thanks.

I deal with a couple organizations that use CRES for external emails. The sender sends an HTML attachment via regular email. Opening the attachment goes to a login screen and displays the message after the user enters credentials.

I can open the attachment using Edge or Chrome but not Firefox. After I enter credentials in Firefox, I just get a screen showing the word "Error".

Has Mozilla looked at this problem and is there a solution, or should I just use the other browsers for these messages?

Thanks, Ken.

Having a problem getting Firefox to open. When you try to click on it it looks like it wants to open, but the homepage is blank. When I try to log in the page stays blank. I can see the menu bar but none of the choices will open. I have uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times, each time removing any and all Firefox folders. Still will not open. Followed the steps for a clean install, no change. The last time I was downloading Firefox I received my first error message: c:\windows\system32\msvcp140.dll error message I get no other error messages, the home page stays blank. Any suggestions on what to try?

Not sure if this was after an update or not. It has worked until a few days ago. Chrome and IE works, but not FF.

ADP gives no errors, just comes back to the same login screen.

When I open all my bookmarks (I have over 200 tabs), the articles from getpocket tend to fail.

In previous versions of Firefox, when I opened a huge number of tabs, the CPU would max out even after waiting several hours.

I installed Peter Simonyi's addon which opens tabs slowly and it works, but this addon is not actively monitored by Firefox.

When the latest version of Firefox came out, I was really happy because the 100% CPU problem went away, but to my dismay most of the getpocket articles failed to load.

I was trying to download Android-x86, which, apparently, nowadays, has become a little shady (too many ads, etc.); so, I chose to download from the "osdn.net" mirror, as the FossHub one just gave me "403 forbidden" errors. So I chose the file and clicked to download it; then the confirmation popup appeared, and it said the file was coming from "xtom.com" (I'm looking at it now from the Firefox Library, but I don't think that was the website... It was something else, I think...). A little while after the download started, the whole computer drastically slowed down, and I couldn't open the download tab in Firefox, I could open everything else, for example, the Bookmarks menu or the Overflow Menu, but, specifically, not the Downloads tab. It then finished, and I promptly deleted the downloaded file on Explorer. The Download tab still wouldn't open; then I restarted Firefox. When I opened the download library, lots of items are shuffled in position.

Could I be infected by a Malware just from downloading a file? I didn't even open it. But the behavior is so strange...

Now that i have v. 81.0.2 64-Bit, the first time I opened it today i saw one of those yellow bars at the top that said that there was a script on the page. Since my email program SeaMonkey was opened too, that seemed to run busy as well as Firefox. When am I going to be able to open these programs without this business of scripts running. Neither program pays any attention to the option to stop scripts.

10/20/20

I clicked on the update button last night - running 81.0, and the update was for 81.0.2. When I went to open the browser all that I got was a line at the top - FF would not open. I backed up the profile, and did a clean install. When I finally got the backed up profile installed, it opened properly once and everything was there. When I opened it again, no book marks, and none of the buttons worked. FF didn't close properly, and I had to use Task Manager to shut down.

I ended up downloading the beta version, and it's worked just fine. The original profile works, so all bookmarks are there.

I see that FF released 82.0 this morning. Is it safe to try to install it, or is the beta version that I installed last night really 82, just hours before it was officially released?

Hi! I'm posting this in hopes of getting help with a UI responsiveness problem that seems specific to Linux when GPU usage is very high. I use distributed computing through BOINC when weather is cold enough to allow it, but I've noticed that when my GPU is working on a task, Firefox is very unresponsive in most regards; scrolling lags behind my actual inputs, it takes longer to render new pages, and videos have issues like video/audio desync and audio stuttering.

That would seem normal to me considering my system resources are in heavy use, except for two things: these issues do not occur in Blink-based browsers (I've temporarily switched to Brave because of this issue), and more relevantly, they only occur in Firefox in Linux, not Windows Firefox.

I have already checked if this is because of settings or extensions by creating a new blank profile (which I am using right now), and that's not it - turning off hardware acceleration doesn't help either.

I see the Troubleshooting Information dump has a lot of system and hardware data in it, but I'd be happy to provide more details if needed. Thanks!

I was wanting to create a collection under general heading like " Accounts" then have sub collections like gas, electric each in the same collection. Kind of like having an accounts folder then inside that folder have separate folders each for a different Utility. Can I do that with firefox browser collections. Sorry if my question is not clear or silly. Thank you in advance for reading this and replying.

When Firefox has been running for some time it becomes very unresponsive. This is a very well known and very longstanding problem. The only solution is to simply restart Firefox. Unfortunately, if one has multiple tabs open, restarting Firefox will not reload those opened tabs. This is a gigantic PITA as this user usually has more than ten tabs open, many with various and sundry search results. Which I then have to laboriously open new tabs for and re-enter all the different search terms.

Is there any way to restart Firefox WITH those tabs ?!?!??!?!

After more than ten very satisfactory years of Firefox use do I really have to switch to another browser that doesn't require constant restarts and pray that I can find equivalent privacy and ad-blocking extensions ?

I'm guessing at the problem: it seems that firefox wants to GIVE ME A SECURE PASSWORD that is different than the one that is written down and remembered by my iphone and since I'm going blind I do not want all of these computer generated passwords. This PC that I am on now seems to have the correct password but firefox is insisting that I put firefox on different device. I THINK my android phone is synced but the older computer also a window 10 laptop refuses to allow me to sign in with my original password. I have no idea if Im suppose to have a different password on each device or what is wrong that I can not sync everything
