Not sure what happened. But after the upgrade to 74.0 while trying to login to Sync it popped a message up that I did not quite understand, but followed the instructions. Before 74.0 when I wanted to login LastPass would show with a 2 on it because I have a password for the main Firefox account and another for Support. That 2 was gone and when I right clicked where the password enter space is on login LastPass was there but when I moved my point to it it no longer extends to show the 2 possible passwords to fill in the entry space.

Hi,

When using the chrome browser, I can play, pause, skip etc directly from the Beats headphone themselves.

However, in Firefox the only thing that I can control with the headphones is the volume. The connection is always there, but I don't know why Firefox does not have the control options available that chrome does. Is there any fix or this?

I should add that I'm using Windows 10.

Thanks

firefox inresponsive after dragging link to file browser

hello, i have an exotic, but easily reproducable hang-up (no crash, process and window still exist, but UI gets inresponsive, also the close-window-x in top right window corner stops working and active downloads don't continue) when dragging a link from firefox 74.0 (64-bit) on windows 10 to my favourite file browser "total commander". i use this link dragging almost everyday, dragging the lock symbol from the url entry line to a folder in my file browser. this always worked and stopped since updating firefox to 74.0.

now the really weird stuff: when i drag the link to a explorer window (i mean the windows file browser), it works. when i drag a link first to explorer and then the same link from firefox to total commander it works. when i drag a link that i never dragged to explorer to total commander, firefox UI becomes inresponsive, downloads hang, i can't change tabs or even click the close-windows-x. i can only quit firefox by right-clicking its icon in the windows task bar and select quit firefox there. even more interesting: when firefox is then quit, the .url file has been successfully created in the folder where i dragged it. also on resuming firefox, all tabs are successfully restored to where i just left it.

summary: my work flow: i drag a link using the lock icon in firefox to my file browser to store the url in a ".url" file. explorer works. total command not. this bug probably got introduced in firefox 74 (i didn't update total commander recently).

i hope you can reproduce this bug (total commander is free for testing at https://www.ghisler.com/index.htm ). it might not hit many users, but it hits me several times per day.

A PDF file is always instantly downloaded to my downloads directory, without asking anything. I've set it to this behaviour at some point, long long ago. Now I want Firefox to use its built-in viewer, but I can't get it to work.

See the attached image for how it's set in the options panel.

I'm a bit confused as to why there's both "Portable document Format (PDF)" and "PDF file". The latter one does NOT have an option "Preview in Firefox". So I've set that one to "Always Ask", but even that won't work. It seems whatever I set these two to, makes absolutely no difference to how Firefox behaves when I click a link to a PDF.

I've tried a couple of plugins, but none work correctly. I use ssh to set up a local SOCKS proxy for support tasks, but also use Firefox for other things. I'm frequently going into Hamburger -> Settings -> scroll scroll scroll scroll Network Settings -> Proxy: None or SOCKS

It would be super nice to bring up the proxy settings, or toggle on or off, from a single button.

It's stuck in safe mode. I opened it in Safe Mode, tried to Refresh, but it hung up. Nonetheless, when I reopened it initially, it opened normally but then stopped opening tabs. So I rebooted and now it won't open in normal mode. None of the posted articles seem to address this.
