I have tried previously listed fixes, like changing browser.search.openintab, browser.urlbar.openintab and browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs to true, and of course the checkbox is selected in my preference to open links in a new tab but none of those have worked. I already know about Cmd/ctrl+click but the point is I shouldn't have to do that when I've already stated the preference and it is a pain when you are sifting through long pages of search results. I am using Google search and there is no option in Google preferences to open in new tab, so I'm assuming this is on FF's end.

I have recently started getting the error message when trying to login to Facebook - "You entered an old password". It then gives me the opportunity to change the password, or "if you didn't make this change, click here"/ When I click, it says I will receive a text or e-mail message --- which I **'NEVER** receive. Also, I can login JUST FINE using Edge, or any other browser. I've been trying to research this now for months, to no avail. How do I resolve this???

The display currently has a side panel with wev site names/urls, but it only shows one site's login and password info. Previous versions of Firefox has a list of the web sites with each site's data: last login, create date, login name and optional display of the password (if I recall correctly). This display made it very easy to sort through all the data and edit it. The new display makes doing this kind of thing impossible. Is there (or will there be) an option to display as list

Amazon does it. Google does it. Yahoo does it. Virtually every newspaper in the Western World does it. Why does Mozilla fail to do it? I'm referring to your help page navigation system. At the bottom of just about every help page, Mozilla has a little menu to aid in our browsing through their help system page by page (e.g., < 1 2 3 4 ... >). And of course, once a number or arrow is clicked we're more or less quickly navigated to our selected page. BUT THEN WE'RE ABANDONED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TARGET PAGE! Literally DUMPED! Common sense alone, as well as reading newspapers for your entire lives, studying Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese pictographs (yes, this principle has been around that long!), and many more examples, would/should tell the programers that the smart thing, if not the considerate thing, to do would be to automagically position us at the top of the new page. Can you please fix this "little oversight" ASAP? Please?

When I launch Firefox (Firefox 75.0 (20200403170909 version)) I keep getting "lebowskilebowski" displayed on the upper right of screen for one second then it disappears as I try to log onto my banking website?

When typing in a text box, if I move the cursor to the beginning or middle of my text and then delete/type, sometimes text will be overwritten somewhere else

I've had this problem for weeks now. At first I thought it was just on Twitter, but recently I noticed it on another website.

When I'm typing in a text box on a web page, if I just type left-to-right and don't move the cursor back or use backspace or anything, it's fine. But if I click back to the beginning/middle of the text to edit it, sometimes my edits will show up somewhere else (not under the cursor), overwriting some other part of my text.

Also, when this happens, I'll often try to select all of the text, copy it, and paste it to another program so I can edit it there, refresh the page, and copy-paste my edited text into the refreshed page, but the first copy-paste never works. When I paste after trying to copy the mangled text, I just get whatever I had copied to the clipboard before that.

Please help, this bug is so disruptive!!

This problem came out of no where.

I always open online PDF file in the firefox browser, and I have the sync function turned on for everything, so I would expect the firefox should work exactly the same at home and in the office.

However, the firefox at home is not displaying online PDF properly, and the same online PDF is displayed just fine in my office.

I tested with disabling all add-on, theme and so on, and they didn't fix my PDF displaying problem at home.

I can't figure out what happened, please help.

Btw, I'm posting this in the office.

Firefox thinks the default application for viewing pdfs should be mac's TextEdit (which just produces jumbled garbage). I can manually change the application when the download window appears, but how do you change the default for future downloads? I can download the pdfs correctly from Safari and they open in my pdf viewer (Preview).

When downloading (saving) an HTML page currently there is no reference to a source URL, where the page originally resides. It is often important to have this URL. IE and Chrome add comment somewhere at the top of the saved HTML document. Currently Firefox does not. It would be nice to have this feature in Firefox.

I have a dual boot windows/linux with firefox installed on both of them. I use the same firefox account with sync. Linux is fine and I just had to log in once to sync it, but on windows, firefox continually desyncs. Like, practically every time (but not always) I use this partition and open firefox, it's desynced and I have to re-sync it manually (and it is a lenghty process because I have to log into firefox sync, then go to my email address and retrieve a code to confirm it's me).

Ps: I have linux mint and windows 7.

Hi there! In my Firefox setting selected option is restoring of previous session. But sometimes (NOT EVERYtime) it open on seperate windows the two ordinary bookmarks - each time they are the same two sites (let's call them "problem sites"). These sites have never been chosed for my starting page or something like that. I tried to understand the system files in "Mozilla \ Firefox \ Profiles", but I could not understand the syntax. I find my "problem sites" along with other bookmarks in session's and recovery's files - that's all with my knowledge =( I tried to reinstall Firefox with full clean of user's files, but after I restored my setting with profile synchronization and restoring bookmarks via "speed dial" extension, and my problem was restored too.

I'm sorry for my English, it's my first try to explain a complex technical trouble. In case with russian speaking users I write original text: Иногда (но не всегда!) при запуске Firefox у меня открывается два отдельных окна, в каждом из которых по одному сайту из моих закладок. При этом окно с восстановленной сессией открывается тоже, с ним всё нормально. Характерно, что каждый раз, когда это всё таки происходит - это одна и та же пара сайтов. По-английски не смог сформулировать, но это самые обычные сайты, с ними не связаны какие-то расширения браузера, у них нет особых разрешений или чего-то в таком роде; они никогда не были стартовыми. Это началось довольно давно, и я не помню, чем я мог вызвать эту проблему. Иногда этой фигни не происходит неделями =\ Я пытался переустановить браузер с полной очисткой пользовательских файлов, но потом отсинхронил настройки через аккаунт Firefox и закладки через расширение "speed dial" - вместе с какой-то из синхронизаций вернулась и проблема. Я даже Винду за это время менял (с 7ой до 10 версии).
