I have it set in setting to open in Firefox. it is continuing to automatically download all PDFs and it is eating into my data! please help. I have to get this to stop or I will no longer be able to click on any PDFs with Firefox anymore. I have also tried setting it to always ask, but if I do that and then tell it to open, then it STILL DOWNLOADS THE FILE! I cannot understand why anyone would ever want files they just wanted to read to just randomly download. I am a genealogy researcher and used to click on dozens of PDFs a day to read, now I can't with Firefox or I won't have internet for half the month after I use up my data. There has to be someway to stop this, I don't like other browsers, but right now, if it involves a PDF I have to use a different browser. (also quite annoying to have to delete multiple files that I never wanted to download - I was using Firefox to pay a bill and downloaded it SIX times) Please help!

Hi there. I am an online student, and platform used for my course is SIMnet by McGraw Hill. I contacted their support team today as the SIMnet course will not even load on my computer. Their answer, switch to Chrome - Mozzilla creates too many problems. I am NOT switching, and am wondering if there is a setting I can change for it to work for me? Please help - I do not like Google!! Thank you

When I am using a web application; ie office365, bank app, etc. If i hit "command p" to print or go to "file-print"....it makes me save as PDF...then i need to go to finder and locate the pdf and print from there.....it has been doing this for many months.....I am saving all kinds of files unnecessarily and a lot of time is lost with all theses extra steps.....any suggestions?

Note: if i use other web browsers it doesn't do this......or if I open office365 documents on the desktop version, it doesn't do this...they will print correctly.

Hi there!

I'm curious about what happened to the 120Hz (and above) support? Disabling addons don't seem to change anything, Edge works without a problem on the UFO test etc. but firefox seems completely broken on 105.0.1 (64-bit) for now.

Anybody else with the same experience?

For years I've set the background display color in about:config to a medium gray, #CCCCCC. Main purpose was to change the background color of the about:blank page, which is my home page and my new tab page.

Note I am not overriding colors; #CCCCCC only showed up as the bgcolor for about:blank. Occasionally websites which forgot to specify a background color would show up with a medium gray background, a minor inconvenience and a hint their coding was not so great.

Just realized my background color selection for about:blank isn't working anymore. The background color of the about:blank page is white. Not sure when it changed. I failed to notice when the medium gray disappeared because I have been reflexively pressing the dim screen button. I have vision issues and need to avoid a white screen.

There was a question in 2021 about the about:blank page bgcolor turning white which was archived but does not look resolved.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344438

Does about:blank now specify a bgcolor, overriding my about:config setting? I still have browser.display.background_color set to #CCCCCC. Do I need to change another value for about:blank now? Thanks for your help.

Delete my account immediately.

I am appalled that your account deletion process is so bug ridden for a group that touts privacy so much.

No matter what I do, I get an 'Incorrect Password' error when I attempt to delete my account. I've tried changing my password. I've used the rest password link. I've changed it about 4 times now and the error persists.

Delete my account manually.

Someone logged into my account this morning around 0732 ET. My account was compromised. There are virtually no tools to see if I had any logged passwords or bookmarks that leave me vulnerable to further damage. - I can’t view access logs to see if my account was legitimately accessed or if I just got a phishing email (it’s uncharacteristically good if it’s phishing: looks identical, spoofed source, real IP reported) - There’s no note of sent emails that can give me confidence in email links (they don’t look useful anyway) - I can’t see if any saved passwords have been removed with a timestamp - I can’t see if bookmarks have been removed - I cant even report the compromised account

The lack of support built into the application is a real security concern. I stopped using FF for the time being. I don’t know if I feel safe using it in the future. It took my a while to reset my password. I think I’m good now but some logs or some sort of fraud response would go a long way.

I run several versions of Firefox concurrently and recent added 102.3.0 ESR with no issues.

Backed Up bookmarks from a previous stable version to a .json file and imported to v102.3.0#

All the favicons were missing, replaced with a globe.

Visited a dozen sites to see if reloaded them but only 1 loaded icon. These are my own https sites with similar coding an NO code to hide icons - included google. No change.

Read all the posts I could. Verified databases, checked about:config BUT nothing changed, all bookmarks just show the globe icon. Even re-installed that version of Firefox, but same result. Started Firefox with an older profile from earlier version, for a rebuild. Same again.

Is this a bad feature of 102.3.0, an error or something else? Run 78.15ESR with same bookmarks and all are correct.

Any clues above all those published which do not work

p.s. anyone found a work around for THIS version to get green padlock back?

Hi, Since the latest update of my Firefox browser to 105.0.1 (64 bit) on my Mac with operating system 10.13.6 I'm getting messages as the enclosed picture. It appears on upper right corner when I open Firefox. It comes with a sound signal. It appears many times in one hour. How to get rid of that problem? I have another application, from Sophos, to protect from viruses and other attacs. Sophos say that there are no problems. My Mac is clean. Possible to sort out the problem, please?

The message in Swedish translated to English: "McAfee: Firewall crashes via musicinmysoul.biz TROJAN-virus detected. Click here..." McAfee is not installed in my Mac...
