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!

I think the latest update, Firefox 105.01, screwed up my bookmarks. The Star on the address bar is blue for any site. Clicking on it does nothing. Will not edit, three bar menu will not edit, Control D will not edit.

There is now a bar underneath the address bar for a toolbar which was not there previously. I have never used or needed the bookmarks toolbar.

The Release notes for 105.01 (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/105.0.1/releasenotes/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-desktop&utm_campaign=about-dialog) appears as a bookmark in an unrelated folder. It will not delete.

I did look at the release notes right after the update. I closed that tab and did not bookmark it.

Cannot add new bookmarks.

I just discovered on the three bar menu under the Bookmarks menu that 105 shows as the last recent bookmark. Prior recent bookmarks will open up the "edit this bookmark." Only the save button is highlighted & clicking on that does nothing & the menu disappears.

Please fix. Thank you

Hi, The spacebar does not produce a space between words, when typing text. I'm using an iMac on macOS Monterey (V 12.6), and a Mac Magic Keyboard. Tapping the spacebar also causes the entire window I'm writing in to expand and contract in size. This happens when typing emails also. What do you recommend?

This morning after no noticeable change to my computer, the bookmarks are missing from Firefox. I thought it might be after last update, but that was a week ago (I think) and I didn't have this issue until after the weekend (computer on but not used, system did not restart). The bookmark backups are listed but i get the following error when trying to load them:

"Unable to process the backup file."

I have found the file location, but even trying to do it manually gives the same error.

Is this a bug from the new update?

Since Firefox for Windows upgraded to 105 the Wordle web site fails to work - it displays the grid at the bottom of the window with no scroll possibility & it displays that even when a correctly working browser displays my statistics.

The website works correctly on other browser (Chrome & Edge), on Firefox for Android and on Firefox for Windows 104 (luckily I had a machine which hadn't been on for a few weeks and therefore was no up to date).

The attached images show the website as it should be (on Chrome) and as it appears on Firefox 105

Since around Sep. 15 2022 cannot log in Home Depot credit account (Citibank) online and receive a 404 page not found error. Since I have paperless billing I need to go online.

Today September 30 around 5:15 PM PDT I called Home Depot customer service number 800-677-0232 as imprinted on the back of the card. (Consumer financial services are provided & processed by Citibank.)

Long story short: I was told that they do not support Firefox since about three years that I have to use either Safari or Chrome or Edge. When I told them that it worked until September 15 the answer was ignorantly repeated.

The culprit is Citibank who manages the financial services i.e. credit card for Home Depot. Citibank blocks Firefox users from accessing their account information with out any kind of notice. Only information one gets is a false and misleading error message: 404, page not found.

So Citibank decided Firefox browser will not be any longer supported, apparently since 2019 yet I experience it for the first time two weeks ago. Not the basic courtesy of any kind or form of professionalism and announcement or notice. Just a blank white page and the browser tab "404: page not found" unless [Sh]Citibank changes that you will no longer can use Firefox to log into your Citibank account. You might have well noticed that all the search result links you find listed (" Home Depot credit card") result in 404 error pages when using Firefox.

It is this proverbial arrogant "we show you the middle finger" attitude I have had enough with. Be it either constant "enforced" updates or every other year yet another browser that's not supported or another gimmick.

No word about from Home Depot or Citibank about this, despite all the communication channels, no email, text message, automated phone call or USPS letter. But junk, unrequested advertising, that works all the time on all channels.

When I drag my cursor to the left side of any webpage, click and drag upwards, firefox acts like i've pressed the back button! I've been trying to get some work done, which includes clicking and dragging things, so this is incredibly frustrating! I've already turned off browser.gestures in about:config, and now I'm not sure what to do! Please help me! ): This also happens when I click and drag from the left side of the page, to the right side of the page.

Edit: Turns out it was my mouse ): got a new one and it fixed the issue.
