Firefox occasionally displays the digit 9 as a dash "-". On any particular website this can occur on all pages, only some pages or on one part of a page and not another part of the same page. This occurs in the same places on Chrome and Opera but it does not occur on Safari. I have seen it occur on text sent from a website as well as on text I type. In one example, the font-family is Helvetica and the problem occurs on larger font-sizes but not smaller sizes sent from the website. In another example, when typing a credit card number, the font-size is typically small and the problem does occur. I am using Firefox version 77.0.1 on Mac OS 10.11.

Use system viewer for downloaded PDFs, use Firefox's built-in viewer for all others

Firefox version: 78.0.1

Firefox recently changed the behaviour when clicking on downloaded PDFs in the Firefox Downloads panel. While all other downloaded files are opened with the system default program when clicking on them, PDFs are opened with the built-in Firefox viewer.

This is counter intuitive. If Firefox is the system default PDF viewer, this separate treatment of PDFs is not necessary (the system default redirects back to Firefox). If Firefox is not the system default PDF viewer, users need to take extra steps to open a PDF in the system viewer (open the folder, click on the file; also documented [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/view-pdf-files-firefox-or-choose-ano...]). Therefore, this change creates no benefit for those who use Firefox as the system default PDF viewer, while reducing usability for those who use a different system PDF viewer (e.g., Acrobat).

Example use case:

  • Browse to a PDF URL: use the Firefox built-in viewer, because it is fast and convenient. A more sophisticated viewer is not necessary because the document is only viewed, not edited.
  • Download a PDF: use the system default viewer (e.g., Acrobat), for example for annotation.

It seems clear that this change has reduced usability for no functional improvement, while the common combined use case of Firefox for PDF URLs and professional readers (e.g., Acrobat) for downloaded PDFs has become more difficult.

Hi,

I am developing a WYSIWYG site through Adobe Portfolio. When viewed in the editor, image elements are in the correct position.

However, when viewed in FF, they are a long way out of position. In Chrome and Edge, they are much better, but still out by a small amount.

Please see attached screen dumps.

Any ideas? I suspect it is a combination of coding generated by the editor and the way FF interprets the code.

Regards,

Steve

I've added 3 add-on buttons and 1 command-button to the navigation toolbar:

  1. Web of Trust
  2. Adblock Plus
  3. NoScript
  4. Full Screen toggle

When I toggle Firefox 6 to full screen these 4 buttons jump to the extreme right.

Why does Firefox 6 do that? It is somewhat annoying. This did not happen in Firefox 4.1 and earlier. Please compare the two screenshots on screenshot 1 screenshot 2
