I know Firefox recently changed some settings regarding automatic downloading of files, but I need to know how to stop Firefox from automatically downloading .pdf files that I view. Sometimes I just want to view a pdf without downloading the file. Firefox keeps automatically downloading the file, then after viewing it, I have to manually delete. I don't to do this! I just want to view the file and if I want to keep it, I'll save a copy. This is extremely annoying! Can I change the settings so that the file won't automatically save to my computer? Thanks

Hello,

i recently want to check something in Firefox and noticed that in about:third-party where some modules were installed. I have no knowledge about these kind of stuff. There were like up to 10 modules with the sign that there were not signed.

So I wanted to check it on the next day. But these modules disappeared now.

The questions are: Is it normal that these modules disappear? Is it normal that some module are unsigned?

I notices that the modules come and go, depands on the Websites. Is it a common behaviour?

The most important one: Is there a way to trace die non-listed modules? Maybe in the Firefox Data or something?

Thanks for help!

I have been successfully using FireFox for many years, recently we downsized into a Condo,now 81 years young. I have FireFox as my default browser choice, but it only lists Google on the search bar, when I type in my search in the box under the Firefox name it immediately jumps up to the top of the page Google browser.

How do I get back my screen to use FireFox as my search engine ?? I have tried to change it but will only give me two options Google or Google ?? Is it possible to go back to the screen and try and start again??

Many thanks to anyone who will give me info as to how to rectify my problem, be gentle with me as I am efficient in using the computer but less so trying to solve my problems. Robin

I don't have the Use the address bar for search and navigation checked, though I do have the Add a search bar to toolbar enabled, when I am on the Firefox Homepage I have the Web Search turned on, when I try to type something in the homepage search, it automatically redirects the text to the address bar area which is where I want the address bar stuff, not the omnibus search that everyone explodes all over their pants over, so the search area is rendered useless.

Hi,

is there a config option to prevent the showing of user/pw proposals when opening a website for which user account data is saved? When i'm logging into a website with already saved user data, i get account proposals (as ff saves the data "per domain", say if you have 3 accounts to one website, e.g. a test user, an administrator and a cms administrator, they are all presented where needed content may be...) see pict. I would like to opt out this behavior, as i have more than one website with 2 or more accounts.

Is there a way to unbind `Ctrl+K` in Firefox?

I am currently creating a website in WordPress. It has many embedded YouTube videos.

On pages with embedded YouTube videos, in order to go back to the previous page, I have to click the Back button multiple times. If I right-click on the back button, I see that the page I am currently on has been listed multiple times.

Many other support questions list this issue. I have found that if I disable "Site Isolation" (URL about:config -> set fission.autostart to false -> restart Firefox), the issue goes away.

I am interested, however, in the user experience for those who will go to my site. Is there anything I can do so that "Site Isolation" does not cause this problem?

Thanks, Jeff

The Firefox desktop browser default font is replacing all fonts on some websites, only title fonts on some others, and then leaving others unchanged. It seems random, and I can't stop the default font from taking over randomly on most websites no matter what I do. This was not happening until today, and no browsers or general MacBook Air preferences were changed between today and yesterday when I last used the browser on desktop.

Under Firefox Preferences » Fonts » Advanced, I've made sure to check the box to "Allow pages to choose their own fonts instead of your selections above", and I've unchecked it, and I've re-checked it, and the default is still overriding fonts on most websites.

I've quit and restarted Firefox 3 times.

Help!

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1710933

If i want to open files into an application i do not want the files to clutter up my downloads folder.

this used to work perfectly pre-v91.

i understand that some users were confused where their files went when they opened them incorrectly within firefox.

currently i'm using a python script to clear my downloads folder from the useless files, but i'd rather just not have to bother with it.

is there a way to get the old behavior back? im comfortable going into about:config and/or using a plugin if i have to.

My CSS has always been directed to two effects:

- tabs on bottom - general transparency of the bars

The latest update luckily spared the former, but not the latter! Anyway, this time I haven't been able to solve it on my own, unfortunately...

My current userChrome is:

https://pastebin.com/96BJRyUt

And my "special" about:config settings, which I've customized over the years to set everything back to how it looked before the progressive updates, are:

accessibility.typeaheadfind.manual - FALSE

toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets - TRUE

print.save_print_settings - FALSE

browser.download.autohideButton - FALSE

browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled - FALSE

browser.proton.enabled - FALSE

extensions.pocket.enabled - FALSE

browser.theme.content-theme - 1

browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel - FALSE

Can anyone please suggest a solution? Thanks for your attention!

It seems since Firefox 100 the address bar has taken to being white-on-white, making it nearly impossible to read. There isn't any issues with light themes. It doesn't matter if I change the Windows 10 default app mode to light or dark. Light themes have black text on white background, but dark themes have white text on white background. Any ideas?

Firefox 100.0 Ubuntu 22.04 Mozilla VPN 2.8.0

As the title says, Multi-Account containers doesn't detect the VPN, which means that it's not setting the VPN for specific containers.

I suspect this is actually a problem with the "Allow extension to exchange messages with programs other than Firefox" permission. Could be a VPN issue, but gut feeling that it's a Firefox issue, TBH

Anyone else seeing this?
