Hello Everyone,

Last Friday (10/16/20) I opened a pdf file from a link that expired at the end of the day. I believe I clicked "open" instead of "save" and was able to view the pdf from the browser with a URL destination leading to a directory in my computer. No sweat, its on the computer... I figured I can access it later on. Today I look in my temp folder (URL destination) and my downloads, and can't find the file. I go to my firefox Library and see that the file is in the "downloads" section. However, it says that the file is moved or missing, and I don't remember moving or deleting this file...

Any idea what firefox did with this file? Is there any way i can restore it or restore firefox history containing the file data? Appreciate any help. Thank You.

Just updated to 82.0 and all of a sudden I am unable to print legal size. All settings, including both Windows and Firefox shows legal paper size. Firefox prints in letter size only. All other apps/programs print in legal size. Any thoughts on this. Only started this morning after the update. Checked on another computer with Firefox prior to update and it prints legal, then updated that computer's Firefox to 82.0 on windows 10 pro and same issue. Thank you

Hi,

When I go to Facebook on Mozilla and try to use the messenger app to run a video call (using microsoft surface running windows 10), the default camera is my rear facing camera. There is no toggle i can see to switch it to the front camera. I cannot do so in window settings and have spoken with Microsoft support which tells me to call mozilla support. I cannot do it in any of the facebook settings either. I cannot do it with camera settings in mozilla either. I can use the front camera successfully from chrome! I can from Edge! I can from Zoom. I like mozilla and want to keep using it but if I can't resolve this I will likely just switch to chrome permanently. Please let me know how to select the default camera in mozilla. Thank you.

Why can't i delete my browsing history manually anymore? The only thing i can do is delete pages one by one, not a few at a time, as i used to. I don't want to delete all of my browsing history of the last days or want to delete pages completely from my history. Just would like to, for example, delete a few pages i visited while searching for a product and now getting drowned in ads about them... For me clearing the browsing history manually worked fine. Is there any way to do it like this now?

I have read the reason for this as explained by you but when you visit these sites with another browser you do not see this error.

Also checking the SSL which is what would throw this error (NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY) it is clear that the SSL cert is not the issue. Site checked at ssllabs.com. Please be honest with me and tell me this is not censorship, this seems a little Orwellian and is disappointing!!

Once upon a time when trying to create a blank tab, I accidentally typed "about:blank/" and this command doesn't work if the backslash is there.

Now anytime I want to create a blank tab and I type "about:blank" it automatically includes the backslash.

Because this phrase/command doesn't show up in my search history, even after clearing all of my data, Firefox keeps "helpfully" popping that backslash into the field whenever I start to type the command.

How can I make Firefox forget I ever made this stupid typo?! (Would clearing "Site Preferences" and/or "Offline Web Site Data" work? I admit I haven't cleared those two things.)
