cmd+numbers on alphanumeric keys should switch to respective tab (cmd+1 to 1st tab, cmd+5 to fifth...). With CZ keyboard layout on MacOS, cmd+1 does NOT switch to first tab, it Zooms In instead. No other browser (Edge, Safari, Opera, Orion) exhibits this behaviour. Other numbers work as expected.

FF 98.0.2 on Monterey 12.2.1.

How do I fix this? Thanks.

Hi,

My wife & I have used Firefox for some considerable time now and like it a lot.

However, we have been having trouble with Firefox recently and wonder if you are aware of this. It manifests itself in a very subtle way with only some FEATURES of a particular website not operating, (but no ‘warning’ messages whatsoever).

To begin with, I was at a loss to understand why something didn’t work but, now that this has happened to me on THREE different websites (with features that work perfectly well under MS Edge!), I have come to the conclusion that Firefox is the only “common denominator”.

The first problem was with https://www.parcel2go.com. They have a “Live Help” (Chat) feature. It no longer works with Firefox!

The second was with https://account.patientaccess.com. Try to order “repeat prescriptions” and all is well – until you hit “send”. It no longer works with Firefox!

Today, I have discovered that with https://www.bt.com I am now longer able to access my BT email accounts. Furthermore, they also have a “chat” facility – except that is now also ‘invisible’ to Firefox!

I have seen mention that DuckDuckGo (which I also use) might be involved here?

What’s happened?!!

Why why why why is FF forcing download of pdf files? It is a horrible problem for me.

Especially because I am a university prof and, in the classroom, constantly display (my own!) files from the course management system on the classroom devices. I DO NOT WANT MY FILES SAVED ONTO THE (PUBLIC) CLASSROOM DEVICE. Never mind multiple copies as it will download EACH AND EVERY TIME I open it.

I have been looking everywhere for a solution or a way to disable this feature, there seems to be no such option but I am seeing a lot of posts from people who object to this as much as I do.

After many many years of loyally using FF and a paid subscriber to some Mozilla services, I am afraid I am going to have to give up using FF is this isn't fixed NOW.

Any site I go to such as my utility companies that have a link for me to open and view my bill while logged into my online account are prevented from opening by Firefox. Their help articles define the pop-up window as a window that opens automatically. That is not what I'm talking about. I am selecting the link. I am giving the site permission to open the window. It is not automatic. Google Chrome, Microsoft edge, no other browser has this problem. please help.

Friends:

Recently (in the last few days) Firefox has begun preventing me from using my AOL account citing privacy:

"Secure Connection Failed

"An error occurred during a connection to www.aol.com. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR

   "The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   "Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

Why did this start happening and what can I do about it? Curiously I can still access my AOL e-mail account on my Kindle.

Thanks.

Hello, I am using Firefox from like 10 years ago and it is my favorite browser all the time. I never have this problem before. However, recently after there was an update in Mozilla Firefox 100, I met some errors a few times. First, when I start the mozilla, it always say I need to update to the newest version which is I did a couple times and the error is still there when i restart the mozilla. It is same as this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1264949. i already try to solve it using the solution in that thread but no successful.

Second, when I am away like 10 minutes without using the browser, it got disconnected. I cannot using it like there is no connection (my internet is always on and I tried using other browser and it is on). I need to close the mozilla and start again and it become connect again.

Thank you.

Hi

Usually when I like an article and don't have time to read it, I'll save it for later to read it on my Kindle as plain text.

In FireFox, I'll use the F9 key to Toggle The Reader View to view it in the reader mode, then save the page as text by doing ctrl+s, as I don't need the html version or the images or extra stuff that comes with the article.

However, after the page is saved as text, getpocket.com dumps a lot of unnecessary garbage into the beginning(27 lines) & end(18 lines) of the page, even if I don't have a pocket account nor logged in as listed below.

Is there a way to prevent FF from saving the annoying Pocket self-promo garbage besides saving each page manually and tediously?

Thanks

Microsoft Edge does not have the issues that I have described in the subject line. Edge auto fills my username and password. When switching from Firefox to Edge the two white lines on each side of the screen disappear and the screen is full size. This is very annoying and a waste of time. Firefox also lists my Operating system as Windows 7. I have Windows 10 not Windows 7!

Hello! Since my last update (yesterday, I think?), the predictions that pop up in the Firefox Google homepage search (center of the page, not the toolbar one) are in unreadable very light colors on white. I use a dark theme, and I have some vision problems. I can't find anywhere to change that particular color setting. Aaaand searching for a fix is hard since I can't see any of the search predictions.

I'd love any info on either how to change that, and if not, perhaps to report a bug.

Cheers, Regina

This glitch randomly started happening this evening, and I'm not sure what's causing it?

What basically would happen is I would click the PIP button, and once I do that, fonts disappear (either certain letters would disappear, or they'd all turn into this weird blocky one), the toolbar flickers and changes color, and buttons also flicker. These graphical errors are confined to the window the video the PIP was playing, and stop once the window is closed.

I haven't seen graphical errors anywhere else on my system, so I don't think that's the problem. I haven't installed any new extensions in a while. So... yeah, a bit confused.
