Hello!

I used to be able to open a file (with a program) without it being saved. Ever since 98.0, the "open" option saves the file regardless. I even had to find a work around to get the "What should Firefox do with this file?" prompt.

Is this no longer possible?

Thanks.

While playing one of those free poker games there seems to be excessive RAM memory usage. Nothing else running which can account for it. Also, it shows several Firefox processes while, again, there's only one tab open.

The reason I noticed is that the game which usually runs smoothly began to be choppy/jerky, so I opened Task Manager to have a look. Note: Didn't investigate internet connection speed.

Why is Firefox using so much memory and slowing things down?

I am building a website and, for the last couple of days, when I make changes to the CSS file they are no longer being picked up by the browser by which I mean they aren't displayed in the web page nor in the developer tools inspector.

They are visible in Chromium browser and dev tools.

I have cleared the cache and refreshed the page to no avail. It is only when I restart the browser that the new style rules take effect in the browser and show up in the dev tools.

A recent Firefox update has totally disrupted our ability to print from browser windows. There used to be a "Print Preview" button that allowed us to set things up the way we wanted them. That's now missing. As a result, stuff that used to cost us for ten pages now costs us for twenty pages. Also, when we print double-sided, the second side prints upside down.

This strikes me and my wife as a horrible development, and we would like to go back to the old version ASAP!

I need to know when a visitor to my site is clicking the back or forward button. The reason is I have a "tabstrip" that hilites the currently selected tab and the target document is displayed in an iframe. If I click the back or forward buttons the page is updated with the last or next document in the iframe, but the tabstrip is not updated to reflect the change. Part of this is due to me not knowing how to update the tabstrip, but also because I don't know how to detect the back or forward buttons being clicked.

So I need to know how to detect those button clicks. Also, in researching this, I noticed that there seems to be an idea that you can't distinguish between the forward and back button, only that a button was clicked. That doesn't make sense given that each button has a specific action that is opposite of the other. I need to know the truth about this.

Finally, as much as I use only Firefox myself, I know there will be others who use other browsers. Is there any difference between detecting the back and forward buttons on other browsers compared to Firefox?

One of the pages I need this for is here

Edit 15 March 2022:

I had to fix the link because I had renamed the page when I finished the work on its layout. Also, since I asked this question I have realized another similar and sort-of related issue on a different page: https://wayneca.neocities.org/WebDesi.../TagList.html. The relation is that the back and forward buttons don't correctly reload the page. The difference is that this one is concerning named links.

When you click a link in the table on the left it correctly moves the document in the right table to the point where the matching id anchor is. But when you click the back or forward button the tables do not shift back to where they were on the page as reloaded. The back and forward buttons work fine if the link anchors and id anchors are not in tables.

I have been told about the history functions, but I have found no examples of using it to correct the issue in either of the above cases. Is someone here able to point me to examples of using the history to make a selected link reset back to where it was or reload a page with the last jump point being reset correctly?

Also, why does the named link thing work without tables but not with tables?

Hello,

It's been a while since the release date of chromecast on browsers.. Today, year 2020, all the chromium based browsers add chromecast (Edge, brave, chrome, etc..). My favorite browser is firefox, and i am forced to use a chromium based browser to cast to my androidTV's. Sometimes i think to leave this browser and use a chromium based all the time.

I searched and installed chromecast extension to firefox and nothing works to me, and they are not user frindly as chromecast extension on chrome.

Can you tell me if you even think in add a chromecast extension in firefox by default?

Thanks,

Hi

I don't know what's happened to cause this, but for the last few days if I grab a torrent file online, I only get the option to save the file, no option to automatically open in my torrent client.

I have been to Firefox general settings, and Applications - "Choose how Firefox handles the files you download from the web or the applications you use while browsing" but .torrent is not listed. When I search "torrent" in the Applications search box, I get only "magnet" as a result, nothing for "torrent" files (see image).

Any advice on how to automatically open .torrent files from the web in my torrent client would be appreciated.

Hello, since some time Firefox does't download updates. On HELP/ABOUT there is the installed version and below Updates Deactivated by your system administrator ... . I don't have a system administratot, it's a netbook. Sometimes before FF would download updates for installation. Now now more. Updates are only available by dowloading and reinstallations. After reading some help articles, I tried to get rid of registry entries, no success. I tried to cleanly uninstall FF, clearing the registry and reinstalling. The problem remains. Mind you, this has been created by FF itself. Any ideas how to get rid of this nuisance? Many thanks for a reply.

I cannot get Firefox to go completely into full screen on Mac OS Catalina. When going full screen it will hide the Mac system menu bar at the top, but it will not hide the Firefox address bar. I've researched a bit and found some suggestions about settings in about:config pertaining to full screen access, and I've exhausted all of those suggestions. Is this a known issue on Mac with Firefox?

About 3 weeks or so ago I started to have problems using Firefox to open my windows.live.com emails. I can open windows live (it is slow) and all my emails show but if I try to open an inbox email or even a junk email, Firefox tries for a minute or more the gives up and doesn't open the email. I have tried to re-fresh Firefox but that doesn't change anything.

If I use Google Chrome everything works fine.

As the subject says. I can still search for the firefox app and open it that way or I can start it from the START page that comes up when I hit the windows key on the keyboard. But I am not allowed to drag and drop it onto the taskbar as it says it's already there. It's sorta there I guess because FF is open right now while I type this and this open tab is indicated on the taskbar. If I were to close the FF window there would be no FF logo on the taskbar.

Right clicking the firefox app in the start list that comes up when I left click on the windows icon in the lower left or hit the windows key on my keypad gives me options to unpin FF from the start page or unpin it from the taskbar. I don't want to do that.

I did something to mess this up and I can't fix it. I want the FF logo back on my taskbar so when I power up the machine I can click on the logo in the taskbar to get to the browser with all my previously open tabs back.

The latest Windows 10 a Lenovo yoga laptop if it matters.

Thanks

I know I am not the first person to complain about this. The spacing/padding between menu items, in particular the Bookmark menu is just ridiculously large. It got even bigger in 92.0!

I rely on Bookmarks heavily and use hundreds. I guess this was done for touch screens? The main interface is still currently the mouse for computers.

I see the only current fix is a using a stylesheet and it seems a bit involved. I have to give it a try. I am pleading with the designers, please give us the option to use compact padding once again. I am not sure why this is being forced on us. I really like Firefox, please don't make me look for another option. Thanks!
