Updating to version 98.0 onwards Firefox has started saving a copy of every pdf file I view (open) in my downloads folder.

My settings have not changed:

Tools->Settings->General->Applications: - pdf (application/download): Always ask - pdf (application/force-download): Always ask - pdf (application/pdf): Use Adobe Acrobat DC - pdf (application/x-download): Always ask

And when the "ask" dialog pops up, I choose "open".

I have tried all standard methods/troubleshooting, including resetting the handlers.json file.

The only way to avoid getting a copy in the downloads folder is if I choose "Open in Firefox" (application/pdf) instead of "Use Adobe Acrobat DC".

Any solution to this?

Thanks Michael

This is related to: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370409

I´ve found out, that this Workaround seems to no longer to work since Ver. 101.0.1 (last working Ver.)

This is especially regarding Downloads triggered out of the embedded PDF Viewer in Firefox, when You click on the "Download PDF" Symbol.

Until this Ver. You could still bring back the "Choose What you want to do with the file" Window if You set the mentioned about:config setting to false (linked thread above).

I see this actually as quite crucial and almost a bug, since You will have departments with Workflows build around this. - Thank You for any insight or help

I will post an image to show what is happening when I use the paste in the toolbar search item. I did a retore to defaults and it fixed the issue until the next day after a reboot of the pc and it is back. Anybody else see this behavior and know how to fix it? Thanks, Dave

p.s. I wrote up a larger version of this and tried to share data which didn't work automatically and wiped out my story. :(

Something is forcing closure of Firefox periodically (about once a week or so?). This happens whether I have Firefox open or not. If I have Firefox open at the time, the browser closes then reopens at a Microsoft Bing search page ("...goose...") and all the other pages I had open have disappeared. If it happened when the browser was not already open, the next time I open it the home page has been reset as above. As far as I can see, nothing else in my settings has been changed, but I have to go in and manually reenter my usual desired homepage. Are you doing this, is Microsoft doing this, or is some other interloper causing this? Do you know any way I can find out and stop it?

hello, is it conceivable to hide particular id's when accessing a site when it is registered in the id/password list ? example: when i access web address https://example.com on firefox browser it rolls down all my accounts on that site. In my example i have 8 accounts on that site. I would like an option in the id/password list section a toggle switch to hide/show in every account registered in that list so that the hidden accounts don't show up in the roll list when i access https://example.com . I hope i'm clear enough, if not don't shy away :-) . Thanks

No bookmark sync app. Actually there is. But because of the following problem. It's like nothing.

1 Firefox login bookmarks. Unable to load old bookmarks Or it can't be overwritten and you can't pick and choose to sync. I can't give the bookmark a name. For example, save the name win10 on 07/08/22. List. If a bookmark is broken, it cannot be fixed. Or, it may not be synchronized with Linux and Windows. then My bookmarks are blank. state of nothing This is the problem with Firefox default login bookmarks.

2 I Clear Browsing Data https://addons.mozilla.org/en/firefox/addon/clear-browsing-data/?utm_source=addons.mozilla.org&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=featured I use this bookmark. then.

3 Bookmarks created by individuals https://addons.mozilla.org/en/firefox/addon/syncmarx/?src=search syncmarx

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fvd-synchronizer/?utm_source=addons.mozilla.org&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=search EverSync Bookmarks This bookmark login will be canceled and all data will be lost. So I tried contacting the developer. No answers.

These were the problems I was facing right now.

I'm saving bookmarks manually so it's very dangerous and inconvenient. There are many cases where I forgot to save by my mistake.

thank you. I hope it improves.

Ah, Clear Browsing Data, other additional functions work normally even if you use this.


This story has nothing to do with Firefox. Because it is a problem caused by an add-on created by an individual I am aware of it too. But there is no place for me to complain.

A mouse click sometimes will not release and any subsequent movement results in a "drag" operation. For several months I had only experienced the problem on the https://radar.weather.gov/ website. I'd click on a map to zoom in, then as the mouse moves the map gets dragged all over the place. There was no work around (the Escape key or additional mouse clicks didn't change the situation). The only way out was to close the page. I raised holy he!! with the Weather Service several times.

Now, a second instance is occurring, this time in my Instagram account. In IG's interface, after uploading a photo and clicking to center the image, the click doesn't release and the pic moves all over the place. Again, Esc key or additional clicks don't cancel the situation. I can only upload to IG by using Msft Edge.

I am using an older Intuos3 Wacom tablet and mouse. But as I said, the problem only exists in the Firefox browser and no other apps, not Edge and certainly not in any of my photo apps.

I noticed a similar but not exact situation in the on Bugzilla but that issue was several years old.

Any advice? TY. FrankM

Hello

I am continuing to fail logging in to my Netspend.com account. I am logging in with the correct Username and Password recognized by NetSpend. I have removed the cache. I have investigated if cookies relative to this NetSpend address are blocked. None are. NetSpend support shows no error with my account, on their computers. And, they have no control of cookies.

Would you suggest what I can modify to be successful in logging into my account in NetSpend.com from my Desktop computer ?

NetSpend technical support suggested not to SAVE my Password or Username, having Firefox as my operating browser, proposing Firefox will revert to a former password, unseen by me; thereby not allowing me entry into my NetSpend account.

                   Respectfully

Firefox 102esr has almost every menu, popup and screen in dark mode - which I find extremely difficult to read, given I'm antique.

I've tried all the modes like light, system etc nothing seems to fix it.

Am I going to need a stack of css code to fix it - code for each and everything I want to set back to light, or is there a setting to achieve this?
