Without my doing anything, firefox has decided to download pdf files in its own html. I have changed the default to adobe rather than ask. When I open the downloaded file in adobe it comes down as an adobe file, I tell it to save as an adobe pdf, but it appears in file manager and then opens in firefox html. Worse, it, whatever it is, has gone into file manager and changed adobe pdf files, some of which have been sitting on my hard drive for some years, into firefox html files. How do I rectify this please?

I had created a number of new container categories (ie: news, financial, internet). This morning they are all gone, only the four that are in the add-on are left (personal, work, banking, shopping). I have sync turned on, even clicked the sync button again. I had a lot of sites set to open in particular containers, now they all ope in personal. If this is going to continue, is there a way to back up my list of containers? Using Firefox 103.0 (64-bit) on a windows 10 pc.

FIREFOX v 103.00 - MAC OS v10.15.7 - printing PDF directly from Vendor website, the HEADER is messed up

I installed the update for version 103.00. I already followed all the suggested steps of clearing CACHE and cookies and rebooting the system. Did not fix the problem.

I have several Vendors that I connect to their site, login, and print out my Invoice from them. It directly calls the Firefox printer dialogue box and when it is printing directly to any of my HP Printers (as I tried 3 here officejet 8600, Offuce /het Pro 8025e, and HPLaserJet P3100, all did the same thing after applying the 103.00 update.

The 1st page of the document has a different HEADER the remaining pages. It appears that Firefox is not reading interpreting the information about the 1st PAGE Header FONT size or something else correctly on this 1st page, but ONLY on the HEADER. If there is a logo that would normally print, it is completely unrecognizable and not the right size, like it cuts part of it off.

As a workaround, I have had to choose SAVE TO PDF from the Printer Dialog box, and once it is saved as a PDF on my desktop and opened in either Adobe or Preview, it prints correctly.

I have attached a Picture of just the part that is messed up, sorry the rest of the page has account numbers and personal information, and this is more than enough information for you to work with.

This just started happening since I applied the version 103.00. This is definitely a BUG.

Firefox version 103.0 causes Windows (intel HD) graphics driver to crash and restart repeatedly. Temporary fix = disable hardware acceleration in firefox. I had to force a shutdown by holding down the power button on my laptop to get out of this infinate loop. Mouse becomes unresponsive and does not appear or move after a few crash and restarts of graphics driver. One way to stop it early on is to close firefox by keep clicking the tab close x or top right firefox page close x. Problem only on one website that i listed below.

here is the windows events entry(i edited out my computer name)... Log Name: System Source: Display Date: 26/07/2022 18:14:11 Event ID: 4101 Task Category: None Level: Warning Keywords: Classic User: N/A Computer: edited out Description: Display driver igfx stopped responding and has successfully recovered.

I have 5 of these events but the crash and restart happened many more times than that. I believe the first happened yesterday.

System details... Laptop Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit - many updates installed but not the last years worth before EOL Kaspersky Total Security 21.3.10.391(j) Database release date 26/07/2022 15:02 Firefox version 103.0 (64 bit) Microsoft Internet Explorer 11.0.9600/18163. update versions 11.0.27 (kb3124275). Wifi internet via netgear dongle Intel HD graphics (this is either 2000 or 3000 or inbetween). Driver version: 9.17.10.4229. Driver date: 26/05/2015. Driver provider: Intel Corporation. Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows Hardware Compatibility Publisher. Processor Intel Pentium B960 Ram 16GB HDD 750GB around 15GB free

website i loaded in firefox that gives me this problem... cams.omexxx.com (note it is a pron site). I did not even click aree to terms.

To troubleshoot i did the following... 1) opened command prompt with admin priveledges and ran sfc /scannow it found no errors. 2) i reset all kaspersky settings back to default. 3) I refreshed firefox back to default settings. my addons were deleted after doing so and i did not add them back. 4) i uninstalled the intel hd graphics driver from device manager 5) i reinstalled the intel hd graphics driver downloaded and hash checked today same version as old driver. 6) even after the above problem remains 7) I tried loading the website that gives me this problem in microsoft internet explorer and i did NOT get the problem. 8) Done some google research online and then i went to... firefox menu - tools - settings - general - Performance - this was selected so i unselected it = Use recommended performance settings i unselected this option = Use hardware acceleration when available 9) I went to the problem website and i no longer got the problem/bug so now i have a temporary workaround/solution.

Please investigate and fix this at your end if you can or find out what is going on. Think about turning off hardware acceleration by default in firefox as it is obviously bug prone. This problem only started in the last couple/few days. Did the website in question change something in the last days? before that i accessed it with no problems. Did firefox update recently? I had not changed my intel driver until i got this bug. I have other event viewer errors here is an example of one that may or may not be relevant that has appeared a lot lately (it states atal error)...

I am trying to log on to a website in order to register a guarantee for a product I have purchased. However, when I try to log in to this website, I am booted off by their security system with the following error messages:

Block ID: IPB17 Block reason: Your request was not allowed due to IP blocking (not white listed).

I have been trying to find out how to whitelist this site. However, if I enter the question "how do I whitelist a site?" all I get are lists of people who are trying to resolve whitelisting problems which don't seem even vaguely similar to what I need.

Where can I find instructions on how to whitelist a site?
