Firefox is adding +1 before 7-digit phone numbers. There are two things wrong with this. The + sign is only appropriate for cell phones and some websites will not accept phone numbers with the prefix as valid. When will this be fixed?

When I download a file before I even have a chance to save or open the file Firefox downloads the file and puts it on my desktop. I have to look at lots of .pdf files and this a bit annoying as I have to keep deleting all the files I dont want. The dialog box opens and I always choose open rather than save but Firefox has already saved a copy to my desktop. How can I stop this autosave please ? Cheers.

This bug occurs very randomly, but it seems there have few things in common.

- Occurring on domain level, one domain at once. For example, if Youtube.com stuck, any sub address including each video page is not loaded. Other website and whole browser works fine. - Other program on same PC is not affected, too. - Which page is stop loading is completely random. It might be happen only on a popular, feature-rich site like amazon, google, but not sure. - The timing is also random. Maybe after waking PC up from sleep, but not sure. Frequency of occurrence is once every 1~5 days. - The workaround without restarting browser is 1.)switching to other container tabs(strangely), 2.)opening website on private window. Disabling all the addon manually didn't help.

Since it's randomness, I didn't have any logs about this issue.

When I use Firefox on my Mac, no matter what I have tried it keeps defaulting to the dreaded Bing Search Engine. I understand it has to do with Microsoft, but I don't use any of their products because I don't like them. In settings/search I can restore the default search engines & delete Bing, but it always reverts back to insisting on using Bing again. I have followed several threads about this issue without permanent resolution. Help??

Unable to access the WEB Manager of my ARRIS SGB6782-AC Wireless Cable Modem Gateway (Error code: SSL_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED_VERSION

I need a FireFox feature that allows me to access the typical Cable Modem Gateway Web Manager addresses (192.168.0.1, 192.168.100.1, etc.) even when they have no security certificate.

I have been using a Arris SURFboard SBG6782-AC Wireless Cable Modem Gateway (purchased at TARGET) for over five years without significant issues. About three weeks ago my MoCA network began having issues. I tried to login to the WEB Manager of the Gateway at (192.168.0.1) using FireFox. I got the following FireFox Msg:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to 192.168.0.1. Peer using unsupported version of security protocol.

Error code: SSL_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED_VERSION

   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.

This website might not support the TLS 1.2 protocol, which is the minimum version supported by Firefox.

I finally used an old version of "Internet Explorer" which allowed me to bypass the security warning and connect via a direct ethernet port of the gateway. Evidently someone (Spectrum claims they didn't) downloaded a different firmware version into my Gateway. (D30GW-EAGLE-1.5.4.0-GA-10-NOSH) i.e. not the factory original version. The WEB Manager interface is different, password requirements are enhanced, the MoCA feature can't be enabled, and it seems Arris no longer provides a security certificate for the 192.168.0.1 Gateway address.

Considering the complete lack of cooperation of Spectrum and Arris, I think it is unlikely that I will ever be able to recover the factory original firmware; So... How about adding an "exception" feature to FireFox settings to allow me to at least access my "unsecure" Gateway. I really don't want to go back to using IE. By the way, I wrote this on a WIN 8.1 HP laptop. My main machine is a Dell XPS8300 running WIN 10.

Thanks, Robert R. Hurley

I want to be able to preview pdfs in firefox in a new tab without first downloading the file like it used to. But this version (99) of firefox won't allow me to do that. I tried selecting the "action" for pdfs in the applications section of settings to "open in firefox". What it does is preview the pdfs without downloading indeed but it previews it in the SAME tab which makes browsing more difficult. If I select "always ask", and then select "open with firefox" in the dialogue box, it opens the pdf to a new tab alright but it downloads the file FIRST. Is there a way around this please?
