Just after the most recent FF update I noticed , from time-to-time, that when I print FF is using the FF printer mode instead of the default Adobe Acrobat printer mode. It doesn't happen all the time, but it happens. My options screen still shows Adobe as the default printer mode. So, I don't understand why this is happening. I look forward to anyone's comments. Thanks

Every 20 minutes or so I get a notification from Bitdefender Online Threat Prevention module indicated it has blocked a suspicious connection. This has only started about 2-3 days ago. The only information the popup indicates is:

"firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to gitcdn.xyz. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one."

I performed a full system scan and found nothing harmful. Anyone know what this is or how I can fix it?

Always browsed in Private mode with Strict tracking controls. All sites worked, including videos. After update to 87.0, videos will not run on sites. I've added nothing else since the update and have not changed any settings. I would prefer to not go to "Standard" controls. Any help or advice out there for someone who is definitely not a computer guru??? Many Thanks!

1) I tried turning off Protection: no help. 2) I tried the about:config recommendation: sorry, no change. And if it takes more then that to solve it, it's way above my head! Thanks!

Why did Firefox developers simply disable "Backspace" instead of making it a selection in "Settings"? I understand why some users can't stay "focused" and lose typed data, but the rest of us really like the backspace function to go back a page.

Yes you can re-enable it (& I did so) using "About:Config" but that's akin to REGEDIT and not for the faint of heart...

Am I going to have to make this edit every time FF Updates? and on each of my PCs?

Hello,

If I open a PDF from the downloads section of this page: example pdf (all the way at the bottom) I get a popup asking "What should Nightly do with this file?". I always want to open the pdf in the browser, that's why I checked the box next to "Do this automatically for files like this from now on.", however I keep getting the same popup over and over again.

This only happens for some links (e.g. the one I provided).

Is there any way to open *all* PDFs by default in Firefox?

Thanks in advance.

Which version of Firefox do I have to revert to that will allow me to put tabs under the address bar and not have tabs the same colour as the menu bar? I had the current version of Firefox installed, but after doing a Windows reset to the 20H2 version of Windows 10, the even newer version seems to be less customisable.

Hello, please forgive my language since it's not my native one, I hope it will be understandible...

Since the last firefox update, I've got an issue with my tabs. I use a lot of them (3000+) and it wasn't a problem until now : when I started my computer, firefox launched all the tabs of my previous session, but they loaded only when I selected one of them. I could still launch other program, play games etc

Now when I launch my computer, my memory is sucked dry by firefox (50% to 80%), firefox take a massive amount of time to launch and load my previous session (5 secondes before update, 5-10 minutes now) and I can't use it without some serious lags. If I try to open new tabs it's getting worst and worst. I've try to restart it, repair it etc, but when I try to reload my tabs with a backup, the same issue happen again...

Does someone has an idea to fix this ? Or what the problem can be ?

Hi, folks. Firefox (87.0) has just started blocking my popups on gmail even though I have an exception for mail.google.com. (I can no longer compose/edit a message in a new window, for example.) - I can't choose to "allow popups for mail.google.com," as that option is grayed out (likely since I already have that exception in place), and if I choose to "show" the window, it isn't functional (just blank). - I tried starting in Firefox Safe Mode (extensions disabled) and have the same trouble. -If I edit my popup blocker settings so that I'm not blocking _any_ popups, this does resolve the problem: gmail functions as it should. But of course I'd prefer to have a popup blocker in place for other sites. I welcome any wisdom. Thanks!
