So the issue started happening after firefox updated to version 91. Now every time i restart the browser, all site settings are reset. That includes acknowledging new machine sign-ins into gmail (every single time even after choosing to remember the device), entering verification codes sent to my email to sign into other websites that I never signed out of before closing the browser. Some websites like youtube and twitch I have to set up over and over again. This is extremely annoying and I've never had these issues before the update. I checked all the settings for clearing data upon closing the browser and none are enabled just like they have never been. I do not want to reinstall firefox as I have a load of personalized tweaks done that I cant even remember. Any suggestions?

After change the network connection to cable, or to a different Wi-Fi network, Firefox will lose connection and will be unable to access any website unless its is restated, closing all Firefox windows.

The problem happens when:

1. I have the Firefox opened, I disconnect from wife A, Firefox lost connection, then I connect to Wi-Fi B, all other browsers can connect, but Firefox does not. (if Wi-Fi A and B are from different router)

2. A start the computer disconnected, I open the Firefox, I connect to internet, any other browser that was previously opened can connect, but Firefox does not.

OS: openSUSE Tumbleweed 20210912 Firefox version (91.0.2. It occurs in the last two years, it is so annoying)

On some sites (e.g. Nottinghampost.com) left click does not open links/ pages. It shows that ti is a link (hand mouse pointer) but will only open with centre click in a new tab. I see that this is a problem that others have had in the past.

I have run Firefox in troubleshooting/ safe mode and problem still happens, so not an extension/ theme issue. I have rebooted the computer and I also always clear cookies/browsing history etc when I exit Firefox, that has not helped. The page links work properly in Chrome. I have also done a virus scan (Panda AV)

I am using current Firefox 91 on Win 10 Pro 64, recently updated but I believe the Firefox issue existed before update.

The issue has existed all this week and possibly longer.

I have most recent release of Firefox and also just updated MacOS to 11.5.2. After updates the histograms on the Wordpress blog stats page do not display. They display fine on Opera. I did clear cache — that didn't help. I quit Firefox and restarted — that didn't help. Firefox version for Mac version 91.0.1 (64-bit).

I assume this must be a Firefox bug, but am open to suggestions on how to fix the problem.

Also, when I click the checkbox for "Email me when someone answers the thread" it will not accept the check. Irritating.

After some research, the suggested solution is to use Chrome; the point is, that it works that way ! Is this a FF bug ? Regards Pascal

How to select PDF viewer to use when a PDF is saved locally and accessed with "file://" URL

Greetings, and thank you for taking the time to read my request for help. I use Firefox to view the electronic evidence folders of my Social Security disability clients, which are made available in a web-page-based format with relative links to the documents that are saved in PDF format in the downloaded electronic folder. Each of the exhibits on the exhibit list or case documents with a URL that begins with "file://".

My problem is that Firefox now insists on opening the PDF files in my clients' electronic folders using its internal viewer and not Adobe Acrobat EVEN THOUGH I have gone to Settings->Applications and configured all PDF and TIFF file types to open in Adobe Acrobat DC (Please see screenshot below). This is annoying to say the least because I frequently need to run Adobe Acrobat's OCR on the medical records in my clients' electronic folders so that I can copy text to paste into notes or documents and because I need Adobe Acrobat's ability to take snapshots of portions of the exhibits to paste into documents or notes.

What is odd about this issue is that if I download a PDF from a website with a "http://" or "https://" URL, Firefox _WILL_ open up that PDF in Adobe Acrobat DC per the configurations in the Settings->Applications section.

The first uploaded image shows the settings in the Applications section of Settings. The second uploaded image is an example if Firefox opening a PDF document using its internal viewer in spite of the settings in the Settings->Applications section.

Any help in rectifying this issue would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks, Will Snyder

I have a text on a webpage on 2 lines, which are separated by (invisible) instruction to go to the next line (a so-called "cr/lf").

I copy this text (including the cr/lf) from the web page to the clipboard. I activate the search function with "control-f", and I paste this text in the search box, then Firefox finds 0 matches.

for example:

line1 line2

Between line1 and line2 is a CRLF.

So, in above example, on the clipboard there is "line1CRLFline2"

I have the following questions:

1. Is there a way to overcome this? To find correct search result? (1 match) 2. Is there a plugin/extension available that can handle the above scenario?
