Firefox insists on opening files from local temp dir, discarding URLs

My question is a blend of these two previous questions:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1303566 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1277388

I have a bunch of open tabs which used to simply contain pdf documents, opened in the Firefor pdf viewer, with the file URL in the address bar rather than a local temp dir address. This behaviour however changed with a recent update (I'm on 82.0b5), and now when I reload those old tabs, I get prompted for a download, and a new tab is opened following the download with a local temp dir replacing the URL. As all these files previously opened just fine in the FF preview with the URL present, this is unlikely to be related to whether the server sends files as "application/pdf" or otherwise, as the same files have changed behaviour, and it is unlikely that a bunch of servers changed the way they send files at the same time.

Further, the answer to the second question above proposed to select "Preview in Firefox" to get around this, however this option doesn't seem to exist anymore.

Is this a known behaviour change in FF82? If so, is there a way to get the old behaviour back?

Hello. I am having the same issue as another user, but they flagged their question as solved so I'm making a new one just in case.

I can't login properly to YouTube, only in Firefox, even after clearing cache and cookies and disabling add-ons/running safe mode. I can login to my Google account, view my playlists and recommended videos (although the main page with recommendations only shows 5 lines of videos and when scrolling further is not loading). I can't make any edits, for example add videos to the "Watch Later" playlist, that require a login. When I click login, Google shows the 405 error "The request method GET is inappropriate for the URL /youtubei/v1/browse/edit_playlist. That’s all we know." or with other URL, depending on the action taken.

What can I do? Thank you.

When I chose Inspect Element on an item, a reference to javascript is highlighted, and javascript in enabled in the config. This is the case on both my Windows 10 and Windows 8.1 machines. So I'm wondering what it could be.

My linux mint OS periodically updates me to latest versions of FF. I notice system changes that I'm not sophisticated enough to correct myself. One such change is that new tabs don't always open when I click links, I have to open the new tabs manually. Recently I noticed that website links I used to visit are being redirected through a website called www.smartredirect.de/ ...that take me elsewhere (usually sex dating sites) than the desired webpage I wish to go. How do I disable this www.smartredirect/de action and recover ability to visit those websites I'd like to visit via their links?

the offending website is:
