Hi !

PROBLEM: This is a recent problem. I didn't have this issue before. When I open a pdf in firefox and print it, it prints 1/4 size (top left corner).

ATTEMPTS AT TROUBLESHOOTING - I've tried adjusting the scaling options on my printer, but still get the same results. - I've confirmed "printer_paper_data" is set to "1" for both Adobe PDF as well as a my printer, "Brother_HL_2270DW" - Made sure printers were set to shrink to fit = true

My settings are configured to open pdf documents in firefox.

Hello, Sometime between Friday and today (Monday) Firefox has "hijacked" all of my pdf documents. I didn't ask for this and don't what this. I did find the setting that controls how Firefox handles downloads, it was set for open in Firefox, I switched to back always ask and restarted my laptop. All my existing files are still saved as Firefox HTML Documents. Additionally, when printing from the web files are still saving/printing as the Firefox HTML docs. How can I fix this?

Thank You, Kathy

Starter showed me that an Update to the flash player was going to be installed with RunOnce at my next reboot. This coincided with an automatic Firefox update. I have just uninstalled Flash player successfully from this Windows 10 machine. Google suggests that this version of the Flashplayer is that one used in Firefox?

1) I thought Flash was going away and I fully understand why. Is Mozilla still supporting or pushing it?

2) There are references on the web concerning an "Adobe Flash Player 32 NPAPI" virus !!

I was able to delete the referenced file associated with the player update as well, but there are many other references to flash still in my registry. I have enough experience to help myself here, but I really would like to know Mozilla's official position on the above Q.

Thanks in Advance, Lyle Allen, Durham NC LyleMAllenIII@gmail.com

Firefox Developer Edition 85.0b4, macOS 10.15

If I Google for a PDF and click a link, I get the Firefox download dialog. If I select "Open with Firefox [Developer Edition]", the following things happen:

  • The PDF is downloaded to ~/Downloads
  • The PDF is opened in a new tab, with that new tab's location bar holding a file:///... URL to the downloaded PDF

What I would instead like to happen is:

  • The PDF is downloaded to some temporary directory where I won't have to worry about deleting it manually
  • In whatever tab the PDF is displayed in, the location bar contains the URL where the PDF was (temporarily!) downloaded from

How can I achieve this?

Not having the URL where a PDF was opened from is very annoying when, for example, I open a bunch of PDF search results to read and review, and I later want to share links to some of those PDFs. Best I can do to find their URLs to give to others is then to try and remember which tab corresponds to which search result, or do mine the downloads tab.

Contrast this with Chrome: I click a Google result for a PDF and the PDF just opens in the current tab with the URL to the PDF in the location bar. No dialogs, no PDF files hanging around in my home directory, and I can just copy the URL to the PDF the same way I'd copy the URL to any web page.

Thank you!

Bulk web page Images Download via Tools > Page Info > Media > Select All > Save As - no longer works as it did in previous versions of Firefox. Now, when trying to download all images on a web page all at once via Tools > Page Info > Media > Select All > Save As - When clicking the Select All button a new window opens up but no images have been selected (highlighted in blue) so when Save As button is selected a new window opens asking which folder to save the images to and after selecting the folder nothing happens (no images are saved). This procedure for saving all images on a web page worked just fine in previous versions of Firefox, but now it no longer works. I don't know if this is a bug or coding error or if it has been done intentionally for some strange reason.

I've been familiar with how FF works on Win7 for years. I know how and where its profiles and configs are stored and have reinstalled FF and recovered settings from the previous profiles.

I'm new to Windows10 64, don't really like it but it's embedded in an Intel nuc box. I have trusted file cleaner apps I use to clean unwanted temp files (except important FF profiles which are whitelisted from cleaning). On Win 7 I know roughly what the cleaner will find and remove.

I cleaned Win10 64 with the latest FF update installed (I don't think it's the update) and found over 1000 temporary files. The file path is Users\username\Appdata\local\Mozilla Firefox\Profiles\profile number\ default-release\cache2\entries. They are all small files and not the main default or custom profile I'm used to seeing. But they keep growing in number!

I know Win10 has account and file security protection which gets in the way and wthout changing ownership of this temp folder and sub folders, there is no admin user access.

Can anybody help me understand what I'm seeing. Are these FF profiles in cache2 temporary and not being deleted on exit due to Win10 file protection, or some other reason?

Thanks

Hello

Before making a PC factory reset, I made a copy/backup of the Firefox profile I had. I have simply made a copy-paste of the folder.

Now I am hoping to apply it in a virtual machine, so I have 2 profiles, one on my host after reset, and the previous one on the VM which is before the reset.

So, in the VM I installed FF, and I copy-pasted the old profile inside the new FF profile folder..but just nothing happens.

At least I want it to read my bookmarks and extensions, but it is supposed to read or access it completely. What am I missing here ?

I am using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit)

I just installed it on a new laptop. It was working fine.

I then changed to the profile from my old laptop. It works fine but many images now have glitter; not all over, but as if the image creator has pained this on in odd areas. For example a winter scene has a landscape of a man climbing a mountain and the man is covered by glitter.

I can't work out why this has started happening or how to prevent it. It's intrusive and hurts my eyes.
