Hello all,

Lately I received a report from some colleagues that a certain feature is not working in Firefox that appears to be working on any other browser.

When drag/dropping e-mails and/or attachments from Microsoft Outlook (Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise) to a drop-field in Firefox (88.0.1 - 64-bit) nothing happens.

When using Firefox we can drag/drop files from Windows Explorer, but not from Outlook.

The same fields do work flawlessly when drag/dropping e-mails and/or attachments from Microsoft Outlook in Google Chrome, Microsoft EDGE, Opera and Safari. So Firefox is the only browser - on several OS's - that does not allow e-mails/attachments to be dropped from Microsoft Outlook. We have tested multiple users on different workstation and we have tested drop-fields from several web applications.

Surprisingly I cannot find any solution to this. The only similar cases I was able to find are from a couple of years ago but are about the other way around (so drag/dropping files FROM Firefox to another application).

At this moment I am advising my colleagues to use another browser. But we really want this to work properly with any browser of choice. Hope this community can help us out.

The update to Firefox 89.0 did not fix this problem.

Note: UAC is enabled on the workstations. Disabling does not affect anything. Tested attachments: .pdf, .docx, .html & .xlsx

I have a HP office jet 6500 printer. It has been working fine from my Ubuntu Computer using Firefox . Since downloading the latest version of Firefox I cannot connect to the printer and there for cannot print or scan.

The printer is still working normally from a second computer using Windows10.

I have tried re installing the printer but that has made no difference.

I am wondering if the problem could be caused by the Firefox fire wall. Help please. Please note I don't even know enough to be dangerous so any help will need to be extremely basic. I know my name everything else will need to be explained step by step,

Thanks

John

Hi all, I'm having an annoying problem. A couple weeks ago, I was having major computer problems that required me to completely delete and recreate my user profile. I apparently hadn't logged into Google Voice since then, but decided to try and call a friend from that number today. When I tried to call her though, she couldn't hear me. Subsequent testing revealed that the problem is that Firefox isn't using my computer's microphone as the input, but rather it's taking the input from Stereo Mix, despite the default input device on my computer being the microphone. How do I change this within Firefox? I also have a wireless headset that I use sometimes, but when I plug that in, none of the audio switches to it. If desired, is there a way to get Firefox to use this device for audio output?

Good morning. I unsubscribed from all communication from Mozilla Firefox. I clicked the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email I received and yet, since this past Saturday, I am STILL getting email from Mozilla. I even changed my email address and unsubscribed again but since Saturday there are 3 more emails from Mozilla in my mailbox. I want it to stop but there appears nothing else I can do, I already unsubscribed from everything I could find. Not really a fan of unsolicited email and I don't give my email address out because of it. I don't expect it from Mozilla which is supposed to be all about security and privacy. I am not subscribed to firefox account tips. I posted a few images to show what I am talking about.

Thanks

Users send us their PDFs which we are made available from our website. One such PDF appears blank when displaying it with the built-in Firefox PDF viewer. If the same PDF is downloaded from Firefox, the PDF appears fine in Adobe Acrobat. The downloaded PDF shows a blank page if opened directly in Firefox. The same PDF renders properly in Chrome, Edge, and IE.

I'm using using the latest version of Windows 10 and the latest version of Firefox (which is 90.0.1). We've had other PDFs experiencing the same issue. I've tried different computers, cleared temporary Internet files, and restored Firefox settings to default. Nothing seems to help. We'd like to use the built-in Firefox PDF viewer if possible. Any suggestions?

I am wanting to deploy Firefox v90 on Mac at work. I need to have the proxy set as auto for all users as some of the machines are macbooks that are taken off site.

In windows you just need to edit the mozilla.cfg and set proxy type to 4

On the Mac there only seems to be a prefs.js in the user library

Something needs to be in the application content folder...

How to set location of temporarily download files Firefox linux

Under Ubuntu. If an application is set to be the default file handler for a certain type of file, Firefox will allow you to open such a download directly in the application. To do this, it saves the file in a temporary location, and then hands over to the application. The problem is that the location firefox uses under Linux is /tmp and modern snap and flatpak desktop apps are not allowed to see /tmp.

For instance, a .deb file is an installable software package. Ubuntu naturally uses the Software app to handle .deb files. But Software is a sandboxed snap app, and it won't open files in /tmp

The workaround of saving files and opening them from the app works, but it defeats the purpose of having registered file handlers.

And I do not know how to get firefox to save temporary download files somewhere else. I can't find any relevant configuration option.

I tried editing the firefox launcher:

env TMPDIR=/home/tim/tmp_firefox firefox

but it still uses /tmp

Hello, when I recently updated I was offered a choice of UI themes, including "System theme" which states: "Follow the operating system setting for buttons, menus, and windows." My question is, will this "System theme" option be removed in a future release?

As a visually-impaired user I use a high contrast theme with custom button sizes etc,in Windows, and so was greatly worried by talk of a new Firefox theme that uses its own UI / colour-scheme which might not meet my needs. So when updating I was delighted to see the above option. I chose it and FF continues to use my needed system colours etc. Phew, I thought, crisis averted.

But I am now panicking again at other things I have since read, about certain UI options gbeing disabled eventually. I am unclear as to whether it is the ability to disable specific elements within the new UI theme for those that use it that is under threat, or whether it is the ability to choose the alternative "System theme" that is under threat? Thanks.

I'd like to prevent these from showing each time I click in the address bar, but am unable to locate a setting which affects this.

Does anyone know how to keep these links from appearing when clicking in the address bar?

Thanks.
