Hi Firefox users, is a pleasure contact with you.

The reason I write you, is because I have a weird situation:

In my work I develop web sites. Then, I have a certain pages that uses Crystal Reports. Recently, I use the Mozilla Firefox to use that web site.

All was fine, but weeks ago, a user tolds me, that when download a pdf file from the website, the extension of that file is not PDF.

I try to update the browser to the new version, but dosent´t work. Then I had to download again Mozilla Firefox, and then finally works.

Then the download works perfectly...but then the user told me again that the issue appears.

I check again, and I see when there is an update in the browser, tha file extension is changed.

My question is: Is there a form to avoid or solve that issue? The equipment is a MAC. That issue only appears in the MAC and in Firefox (in other browsers and in Windows works fine).

If it helps something, that PDF file is downloaded by Crystal Reports.

Thank you so much, have a nice day.

For the last few days, my Firefox browser has gone really slow. For example it takes about a minute to retweet something. I have refreshed it and ensured it is the latest version as well as updating my laptop/restarting Firefox. The rest of my laptop and other browsers works fine so it does just seem to be Firefox. Any ideas? Thanks

Hi, I noticed today that when I go to autofill registrations my browser there are other names suggested. This is a work computer so it is locked when I step away, turned off and locked in my office at night. The names that pop up in the autofill are the staff of my Managed Services Provider. How is it possible that their info is in my autofill? I'd be grateful for any insight. Thanks.

"Shrink page to fit paper size" does not work printing .pdf files ("Letter" 8-1/2 x 11 paper, or any other size). In the document I am trying to print, only the upper 3/4 of page is printed on full paper page (remainder does not carry over to next page). Width is correct. Full page will print if 80% reduction is chosen, but reduction is not in same proportion as paper page. Windows 7. Firefox 82.0.2. Read numerous articles and posts. Nothing works. Printer is Brother HL-2270DW connected via USB. Using about:config > print :

    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_paper_data    The value is "1"  
    print.printer_HL-2270DW_USB.print_shrink_to_fit     The value is "true"  
    scaling is .8  (tired 1.0 without success)

All other "print" keys are as described in numerous Google items on this topic. Right now I can only save the document as a .pdf, and then open in in Adobe DC that is installed on same computer. Document prints correctly. This is a pain. I read in one Google post that starting with version around 55 Firefox no longer uses Adobe plug-in for pdf files, but switched to its own plug-in - it is clumsy, and as in this situation it does not work. PLEASE go back to using Adobe plug-in.

So I've found that Firefox doesn't seem to detect my headset microphone if it's plugged in while Firefox is already running. Going into a Google Meet meeting, it asks me if I want to allow the use of my microphone, and only shows a device that was plugged in already (a Rift S headset microphone) - unplugging, replugging, and refreshing the page all have no effect.

If I close down and restart Firefox completely with the headset plugged in, it works.

After searching, apparently there was a similar bug that appeared around Firefox 36 (I think?) that was fixed soon after - In any case, it seems to have reared its head again.

On the new home page with all those web site icons, and also in Bookmarks, SOME but not most web sites require you to click, slowly, to open a web page. Otherwise nothing happens. The most common is Microsoft Outlook web mail, as used by our University as standard email (Illinois at Urbana-Champaign). This started a couple of Firefox updates ago.

I find nothing about it anywhere.

The delay between clicks needs to be quite long like a second or more. In some cases up to 30 seconds works. At a couple of seconds it always works. If I close outlook and then try again later, after a minute of so that usually but not alwas does not happen, but after an hour, always.

If I start up Web Developer Network before trying, it says it sends a "get" but a red "circle with line through it" icon (i.e. the usual "don't" one) appears with "blocked" written in red.

How do I fix this?

Hi, in the last few versions of Firefox, every time I open a private window, I get the private browser splash page and I can see that the main Address/Search bar is in focus and I even see the cursor blinking (and it says search with Google or enter an address as usual).

However if I try to type anything nothing happens. I have to click out of the search bar and click it again and only then can I type in the bar.

This only happens when I open a new private window. If I make a new private tab, the bar gets focus and I can type normally. It's only on the first open of a new window where I can't type anything in it initially.

Hi. I was a constant user of Firefox until a year or so ago. The bloat came in and I followed the hordes to Chrome. Chrome now has similar problems, (21 instances for 3 sites? Really?), so I looked into Firefox once more and found it has apparently been updated. I took the plunge and reinstalled looking forward to easier browsing again. Hmmm.

I am a user of ebay and pay via Paypal. (Just saying that, I guess some of you know what is coming now.) I use Eset Internet Security which has always been very secure, easy to manage and has never given a problem with ebay or Paypal in any way with Chrome. I have it set to open a separate secure browser for Paypal transactions. Using Firefox I cannot get any Paypal transaction to complete.

It has a variety of issues which I seem to meet at random on the way. Sometimes it just refuses to start, the circling icon sits in the small secure browser screen which is empty white and spins ad infinitum. Sometimes it gets to an authentication screen with a picture of a code to type in, except the code is missing and the box is empty white. If I refresh, it shows the code but the first entry is always incorrect then the second entry, if I am offered it, is accepted and I continue to login. Once the login details have been entered and I see the message confirming the data has been sent to www.paypal.com, sometimes it stalls here again and never gets beyond that. Very occasionally I get past this and see a yellow pling with the message "Looks like this action is not supported. Please return and report this error so that we can support it in the future. (invalid client_ID or redirect_uri)". Well I am reporting it but I'm not holding my breath as this problem has been around for months if other people are to be believed.

I have cleared all cookies and caches and restarted Firefox. Nothing. I found a thread here where someone advised turning off location blocking for Paypal. No difference. Payments go through fine with Chrome so it can't be my security settings external to the browser, (Eset), and it can't be a Paypal issue. What is wrong with Firefox that such a necessary piece of functionality is either broken or is so unusual to set up that so many people, (I've searched so I have seen them), cannot make it work?

Any advice on this will be warmly welcomed.

Problem: viewing radar at weatherunderground.com using Firefox only works in Safe Mode. This problem started about 3 weeks ago. The radar also works correctly using Edge. Advice? It has to be a Firefox setting that I have wrong. I have already tried "refreshing Firefox". That caused me a lot of grief trying to get bookmarks back.

Reproduce: I enabled Arabic as default language for Firefox in MacOS.

Issue: Now, I have a mixture or Digits format between Arabic Numbers & Hindu-Arabic Numbers. As you can see even with Firefox version from About window: 81.0.2 ‏(٦٤ بتة)

and Developer Tools too, see attached screenshot.

Note for Translators, Arab Countries don't use same digits formats.

- Eastern Arab countries are using Hindu-Arabic Numbers (٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩) - Western Arab countries are using the Arabic Numbers (0123456789 which are universal in this era)

References:

- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_numerals - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Arabic_numerals

Workaround: I switch back to English when needed. And usually keep another browser for development.

How It should be: I am from Algeria (a Western Arabic country) & an developer (hobby). I expect to set Arabic language with Arabic Numbers format (and It is already set in MacOS preferences)

Possible Correction: - Split Arabic Language locale into 2 (East & West) or Have a special settings for locale formats - I thing most programmer are using dev tool in English even Firefox in mother language. Not sure how to fix this. It is similar to CLI that are not translated to cursive and RTL scripts.

Long time bug and annoyance for me. Firefox is my default browser for 10+ years.

When concentrating on reading a page, and slowly scrolling at the same time, the mouse cursor can drift off the scrollbar even though I have the mouse button held down. It is because I am focused on the page, the mouse can lose perfect vertical sliding action, so the cursor drifts into the page. Soon it can no longer hang on to the scrollbar and the page jumps back to the top.

Is there any fix that can stop this from happening ? The mouse cursor should stay on the scrollbar as long as I have the mouse button held down.

Can anyone advise me why I can't see the Evernote extension on my tool bar? or anywhere for that matter.

When I look at the add ons/ extensuons list, it is there but it no longer appears and therefore I can't clip to Evernote which is my standard go-to way of keeping things quickly.

I have tried removing and reinstalling several times but it makes no difference.

Help please?

When viewing a PDF document in firefox using PDF.js, I hit Ctrl+F to open a search dialog. Firefox's own search bar appears at the bottom of my screen. However, I want not Firefox's native search bar, but the PDF.js search tool. Firefox's search bar cannot search the entire PDF document. Instead, it searches only the currently viewed page or two.

I think this is a bug, and I would welcome any ideas or workarounds. Please let me know if I should post a bug report somewhere else. A cursory internet search didn't reveal any others reporting the same problem.
