I used to be able to open a password protected pdf email attachment on my laptop without downloading it. Now when I enter the password, a file loading symbol appears but the file never opens. On other browsers and on my android I am able to open the pdf. How do I fix this situation?

I am using Firefox 108.0.2(32bit) on a Windows 7 computer. Within the last three weeks two sites Menards.com & aarp.org have become blocked by security rules: Menards by Incapsula & AARP by Imperva. All other websites I currently visit work fine as did these before. I've cleared cache and cookies and "forget these websites" in history. This solves the problem for the first page on Menards.com but any link-click and the problem returns. This also cleared the AARP website but I cannot log in to my account there nor access some of the other clickable links. I can access these websites fine on other computers on this network using Firefox. This computer will access those two sites using the portable chrome browser but not the installed Tor browser. This computer will not access these sites using a VPN or with AVG disabled. I've toggled a few DNS and HTTP settings with no effects. For a year, the only thing I noticed different from this computers and the others is that this one continues to allow Java to be updated whereas the others are unable to download its update. Could that be the problem? Why these are the only two websites that seem to be affected is the baffling part. Menards has thanked me but has not gotten back and AARP wants me to reinstall my operating system. Thanks for any help you may suggest.

The satellite imagery on google maps is mirrored diagonally, while the road map displays correctly over it. Win7, Firefox 108.0.2. started happening with Firefox 107.x.x and tried resetting Firefox, but no luck. Satellite imagery displays correctly in troubleshoot mode and private browsing. Cleaned out my cookies and cache, but no dice in regular browser.

Anyone have experience with that?

How do I find out if a Firefox add-on is causing "rendering error" on a website I'm trying to log in to

I have been fighting with Xfinity.com for too long now over a "rendering error occurred: invalid time value" message when I log in to their billing function for my account. I am using a Windows 7 PC with whatever Firefox version is the most current.

Among the responses from their "experts," I see something that has to do with "browser add-ons may be causing your problem."

I have looked at my Firefox settings > manage your extensions as well as settings > manage your plug-ins. Under Extensions enabled I have 2: Norton Safe Search and Norton Safe Web. Under Plug-Ins enabled I have OpenH264 Video Codec and Widevine Content Decryption Module. That's all. Could any of these be causing the problem?

Does this "rendering" error have anything to do with Javascript? (I thought Firefox did not support Java so never paid any attention). If it does relate to Javascript, how do I fix my Firefox browser settings to enable it for the Xfinity.com website to see if that fixes anything?

This is so incredibly discouraging.

Previously visited links of eBay items are not showing up in "purple". eBay has increased the length of those links beyond 255 characters which seems to have triggered this issue. I can click one item on a listing search page and it will be purple as long as I open a second tab when opening it. But when reloading the same list, the same item is not purple as they always used to be. Actually, a few still are, and those have the shorter URL. The links do show in the history record. This is very annoying, I can't imagine I am the only one who is finding this. It has persisted through the last two updates. This needs to be fixed.

After installing the new version 106.01, restoring recently closed windows in History doesn't work even though it is highlighted as being active, but nothing shows or happens when pointing at and clicking on "Recently Closed Tabs".

(I accidently closed one of my two windows and therefore lost all my tabs.) (I know I can restore the tabs one by one, but that will be a huge task.

So what can I do to restore my lost Firefox window?

Thanks in advance. Jens Giertsen Denmark

ONCE AGAIN, I am having Hotmail issues through Firefox, and ONLY through Firefox!!! I had to go to PALE MOON AGAIN to use Hotmail. This is getting REALLY irritating. I can go to ANY OTHER website through Firefox with no issue, but Hotmaill? Oh no, of course not. Your damn browser refuses to cooperate and Hotmail just sits there for the past TWENTY-FOUR HOURS with a waiting symbol and stalls out, refusing to do ANYTHING to refresh the page, and when I try and open an email, Hotmail says, "We're sorry, we can't display that message right now." But when I use Pale Moon, NO PROBLEMS WHATSOEVER!!!! FIx your damn browser to work with Hotmail CORRECTLY this is YOUR problem!!! Since it works FINE through Pale Moon the problem is OBVIOUSLY with YOU!!! I am so sick and tired of YOUR BROWSER stalling out and causing issues ALL THE TIME! DO SOMETHING!!!

I am a 25 year user of firefox and this is the worst it has been 100.0 On more and more sites Firefox fails to work on forms and certain web pages.

forms dont show up forms dont execute once complete certain website actions dont work

my belief is these are special scripts and not the basic website display, but I am having to switch to chrome more and more to acomplish my daily activities.

I have updated recently to 100 and I find it hard to believe I have these problems.

Hi All,

I'm trying to modify various userChrome.css attributes of Tabs in Firefox 109.

However, code that worked in FF 88 is seemingly no longer working.

Is the below code outdated?

I would also like to change the appearance of #TabsToolbar from translucent to either a solid color or a background image. Is that possible? Right now, you can see icons from the desktop through the Tab bar, and there appears to be a strange curved, black overlay colorizing it. See attached screenshot.

Thanks for any input!

/* MISCELLANEOUS TAB ATTRIBUTES */

  1. TabsToolbar { /* tab bar */
 -moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important;
 padding-top: 0 !important;
 padding-bottom: 0 !important;

 border-top: 1px solid #afc0d2 !important;
 border-bottom: 1px solid #8698aa !important;

}

/* Change the color of selected tab */

   .tab-background[selected="true"] {
       background-attachment: none!important;
       background-image: none!important;

background-color: #eef5fc !important; /* background color only, not border */ }

/* Change text attributes of selected tab #8698aa to match bottom tabstoolbar line color */

  1. TabsToolbar .tabbrowser-tab[selected] {

font-weight: 800 !important; color: #000 !important;

       border-top: 1px solid #8698aa !important;
       border-left: 1px solid #8698aa !important;
       border-right: 1px solid #8698aa !important;

}

  1. TabsToolbar .tabbrowser-tab:not([selected]) {

font-weight: 600 !important; color: #000 !important; /* non-selected tab text color */

       border-top: 1px solid #afc0d2 !important;
       border-left: 1px solid #afc0d2 !important;
       border-right: 1px solid #afc0d2 !important;

The above website will display a "No Internet Connection" message every 2-3 hours. When I close Firefox ESR 102.7.0, I get a " Firefox still running message" and when I click on "Stop the process" it closes and Firefox will re-start with internet access, will run for 2-4 hours then happens again. I am running Win 7 Ultimate with all updates on an HP DV-7 laptop with an I-5 processor. Also it seems that the longer Firefox runs the more Processor time it takes. It will start with about 20%, then in an hour or 2 will be at 95%.

Hello all, I was wondering if any one else is getting these old file virus alerts "Trojan Horse Full Path: c:\program files\mozilla firefox\00029458.tmp" I have been getting alerts every two or three days from Norton "NIS" with different temporary file numbers that end up in this folder/directory. These are some type of Media file that are 7 years old with lots of users. They seam to popup when I read my yahoo news feed. I browse in private mode, so I don't save cash or searches, I don't use a VPN either so maybe someone is trying to track me or Norton is being over protective because these don't look to be harmful because of so many users but I am no expert.

Firefox incorrectly formats 7 digit phone numbers for no reason by adding a "+1" and stripping out the "-"s (dashes). It is not up to Firefox to arbitrarily decide how I want phone numbers entered. This can be seen when you go to "Privacy & Security", "Forms and Autofill", and "Saved Addresses". Edit any of your saved addresses or add one if you don't have any addresses saved. Enter a phone number "456-789-1234", save the entry, and open that entry again. The phone number will now be "+14567891234". If Firefox wants to make the reformatting an option, I'm OK with that so that I can turn the intrusion off. version 109.0
