I have Set Foxit reader as my default app in the applications section of Firefox options. I have also set "allow" in the privacy and security section of options. When I click on a video file I received via email, a window pops up asking me "how do I want to handle this". It shows that Foxit reader is a default app and I, therefore, click on the box that says "always open files using this app". The next time I click on a different video file, doesn't automatically open. Instead, the how do you want to handle this window pops up again. Can somebody tell me how to correct this problem?

TIA James Birke.

If it makes any difference I am using yahoo mail. When I try to open attachments in my emails, a window pops up asking me - what should Firefox do with this file?. I click on the - do this automatically for all files of this type - and then click on the open with button. The file opens. The next time I try to open an attachment of a similar type the window pops up again instead of the attachment automatically opening. Why is this happening and what do I do to correct it?

I have my favorite applications set as defaults in the autoplay extensions options. I have "do this every time" checked in the dialog box that pops up every time I try to open a file. It doesn't matter what the file extension is. PDF, MP4, and JPG files don't automatically open.

I posted a similar question before when I thought this only applied to MP4 files. Since then, I've noticed it applies to all files.

I would really appreciate some help getting this to work again. Jim Birke

Hello.

Short cut keys need to have a activate/deactivate control.

IE. I do a lot of email writing. I am doing it right now in fact. There is some short cut key combination that "goes back one page" in the browser. Is this clear? It steps back a html page. Goes to the previous web page etc.

I do not want this. I do not want this short cut key. I do not want this functionality.

I do not want short cut keys AT ALL.

This subject has come up a few times, it's a pain in the neck. Can who ever is cooking up these short cut key things STOP. Just because YOU want it does not mean other people do. and if you hard boil this into the program ( firefox ) they you are essentially pushing it onto people without the ability to turn it off.

I do not want short cut keys, and ones on my mouse are EVEN WORSE. ( that stupid side key on the mouse that send you back on page... uff !!! )

I don't want some addon that I can edit. I don't want a long explination about how you can't change short cut keys etc. I am sick to death of getting changes pushed out by developers who have to justify their paycheck to the boss.

In short! I need to turn short cut keys OFF.

I want to be able to WRITE without fear of some RANDOM key mash fouling my writing up. Frankly I would be quite happy with ONLY typing keys working and all other keys and short cuts OFF.

I cannot believe this is STILL AND ISSUE.

Even CARS have a button for turning TRACTION CONTROL on or off !!!

Yes I am mad. You bet. This is still a thing! Are you listening Mozilla ???

Make it stop. I write a LOT. I never want to step in the short key land mine ever again!

Permanent Short cut keys? NO !!!! Check box to turn them off ? YES !!!!

WAKE UP !

My regards.

Aleksander.

How can I retrieve lost bookmarks? Syncing between two Firefox browsers replaced my newer bookmarks with the bookmarks of my less-often used browser. I expected the newer bookmarks to appear on the other browser. But instead the more-often used browser now has the same bookmarks as the less-oft used one.

Firefox Developer v80 Mac OS failes to render new css even after cache flush and reload

I've been using Firefox Developer version for some time now on Mac OS and have never had a problem like this before.

However, since version 80, Firefox Developer fails to render the new css after a change and save has been made to the style sheet even after multiple browser refreshes. Caching on the server end has been disabled so I'm really trying to find a solution to this issue as it has forced me to find alternative browsers to develop with like Safari since Firefox Developer has become unusable for me.

I've gone through and performed manual cache flushes on the browser from the settings/preferences panel. On occasion, by quitting Firefox Developer edition and relaunching it will then render the new changes but only after a quit and relaunch and sometimes using a private window as well. This is happening with multiple hosting services so it's not any particular provider.

This is most annoying. I've even reset Firefox Developer a number of times to default settings without any extensions etc. and still the problem exists.

Earlier version of Firefox Developer don't seem to be exhibiting this problem. I'm not running any proxy's or special configurations with the settings either.

Any assistance to finding a workaround would be greatly appreciated or I'm going to have to stop using Firefox Developer version altogether.

Thank you,

Last night, I noticed that the usual Dock icon for Firefox developer Edition had changed from Blue Fox to what looked like the App Store brush/pencil triangle. I restarted but it persisted. Removed the application and re-downloaded and re-installed, but same issue. I then noticed that all the Tools -> Web Developer tools had gone from the menu. Likewise, doing Firefox -> About inserted 'about:preferences' in the search bar, but nothing else happened. Tried launching the settings from the right side hamburger menu, again nothing happened.

Read around a bit, and deleted one of two profiles from ~/Library/ApplicationSupport/..., then tried re-install and restart the Developer Edition, but that complained that a profile was missing. Restored the profile I deleted, but same problem as before.

I'm stumped. Can anyone help with this one please? I'm on Mac, latest version of Mojave.

Thanks

Not a serious bug, but firefox warns about cancelling downloads when trying to switch profiles without actually exiting the browser. Please take a look at the attached image.

If I somehow click on "Cancel 1 Download", it does nothing, just launches the profile I am launching. So the warning actually means nothing, and should be removed.

Thanks.

I've got multiple clients set up to sync via FF sync. Some are older, some are newer.

However, looking at the newest client (set up ~2 weeks ago), I noticed something: It only shows a browser history up to approx. one year in the past. I've checked other clients. My oldes client goes back to ~2016, which is 4 years form now. I know my oldes client is older than 2016, so there has to be more.

Does FF Sync skip older entries? IMHO I'd have to see the exact same history on my older client than on my newer client. That is not the case. Any ideas?

Every time I open Firefox, a javascript from IcelandSue.com tries to connect to the internet. I've refreshed Firefox, cleared the cache, used NoScript to block this script, but it always remains. I've found the site listed as a Data Miner and would like to delete it from where ever it has installed itself inside of Firefox. Thank you, jason
