Q: Does anyone know if Firefox has maybe re-instated pinch zoom functionality for Mac users?

Or if there is a decent work around available yet?

And if not, anyone have a good answer as to why Firefox overlooked it in their last major update? Seems rather shortsighted to me. Not being able to pinch zoom on my mac trackpad is highly frustrating. It's pretty much a deal breaker, making me want to migrate back to Chrome or elsewhere. Which is sad, because I thought I'd finally escaped Google for browsing.

I have the download setting to "Always ask you where to save files". Unfortunately, Firefox keeps changing the setting back to the default. I understand that, unfortunately, whenever Firefox does an update it changes all my settings back to the defaults (but that's a different issue).

I have 'Firefox updates' set to only install when I okay the install. Unfortunately something is changing even when I have not run an update.

Why might my download settings be reverting back to the default setting?

BLOCKING FILE SYSTEM ACCESS -- DANGEROUS ALLOWANCE -- IDEAS & SUGGESTIONS

Hello to all,

I was searching on Google how to block file:///C:/ or file:///D:/ because this is dangerous to allow!!! Shocking! And this is still not fixed after years of developments... Why? To keep this allowed makes it too easy for hackers, especially with multiple screens and a shadow/background screens available which can be running in the background, not seen, when hackers do that.. Kind of the way TeamViewer allows help to be provided remotely. Kind of screen sharing. Oh well...

Maybe need lots of complaints from you all to get this changed?..


Try yourselves to use file://C:/ with 2 // and file:///C:/ with 3 // and both are allowing access to the whole file system and any data file. BONKERS??? But why to use 3 /// if 2 // still works? Insider's job or programming conflict? Why would Firefox programmers allow that? I do not understand...

I tried to use selective website blocker, but for file:/// that addon says that the page is not supported... Maybe another type of addon could be developed for this to be blocked and secured once and for all, but not sure if Firefox would allow such an access or such a blocking. May cause issues with Downloads and accessing download folder from within Firefox. HOWEVER, they could block any system or file access from the ADDRESS BAR and SEARCH BAR and then do a work-around solution by developing a special warning 'dialog message' each time when any user (owner or remote user) tries to access forlder to see or use any file. That would be a lot like a guest account requiring password to access special folder or file, or wants to perform an action usually not allowed for a guest user. Password is required for that each time, or at leats a visual confirmation. That would help, I hope...

Would need to re-educate users after this! TOO DANGEROUS TO KEEP THIS IN SUCH A WAY AS IT IS NOW!!!!

DOES FIREFOX TEAM UNDERSTAND THIS? Maybe they forgot about this, maybe they did not figure out how to solve this, or maybe someone from an inside is helping hackers to have a very easy access? Not sure, but this "open doors to all system and data files for anyone" is shocking!


What about business or government people? What about online bullying and harrassment? What about privacy about which Firefox writes so much? Need more complaints to make this a serious issue. So, everyone, please write your own comments or complaints to Firefox and Chrome directly and maybe they will listen. This may take more work than we think, but my ideas may help. What about your ideas? Express them below and maybe they will help as well.


You all can ask them for this to be blocked or solved, so ask. Maybe my ideas will help to get this moving. Write your own to them as well. And Microsoft may need to get involved as well because Firefox, and from what I read, Chrome allows this too... Other browsers may be doing that as well...!!!!!! There are loads of various browsers available!!!! I read something about Windows Policies, but I do not understand what that is...


(( !!! )) If any of you will try any system changes in an attempt to try solving this issue, make sure you are okay to risk with crashed system requiring reinstall or recovery to be used, and then, write down all the changes you do in detail before carrying any further and applying them because that may ruin the system without a way to recover it.

Thank you in advance.

PDFs are always downloaded and local copy opened instead of in-browser

Hello, at some point in the recent updates (with FF 80? I can't say as I have skipped a few updates over summer and only recently updated again to the most recent Beta), the way in which my Firefox browser handles PDFs has changed. After quite a bit of research and scouring through other threads I haven't been able to find a way to reverse it. I do hope there is...

-PREVIOUS BEHAVIOUR- 1) When I clicked on a link to randomsite.com/example.pdf, FF would open the PDF within the browser, either in the same tab or (if I requested it) in a new tab or window. The URL line would show "randomsite.com/example.pdf 2) The only exception was where a website had forced the PDF to be downloaded, in which case the dialogue asking me how I wanted to open the file would appear. In earlier days, in that case I had to pick Adobe or Preview or similar, more recently the dialogue also allowed me to open the file in Firefox. In that case, the URL line would show the local URL, i.e. "file:///Users/Michael/Downloads/example.pdf"

-CURRENT BEHAVIOUR- 1) What now happens is for any PDF I click on whatsoever, Firefox forces me to download it. Depending on what I put in about:preferences, I either get the dialog window asking me to make a choice, or it directly opens a new Firefox tab, but crucially it still downloads the file and shows me the local URL of it.

-WHAT I WOULD LIKE- A way to revert to the previous behavior where for 90% of PDFs, I never downloaded them but just viewed them in-browser. I look at a large number of different PDF files online every day for my work and I certainly don't want to download all of them and having to de-clutter my download folder all the time.

-WHAT I HAVE TRIED- - I went to "Applications" in about:preferences. I can set the relevant entries for PDF files to "Always ask" or to "Open in Firefox" but even with the latter set, it still downloads them and opens the local copy, rather than not saving a local copy in /Downloads/ at all. - I have checked in about:config and "pdfjs.disabled" is set to "false" as it should be

I don't think I have any extensions or add-ons related to PDFs, in any case I haven't installed any new ones recently.

Any clues appreciated, my overflowing Downloads folder is grateful.

Since installing Big Sur on my iMac I, when I click on a url in a Apple Mail email I get the "profile not accessible" message. If Firefox happens to be running when I click on the link it will work.

I've tried all of the suggestions for fixing this issue to no avail.

Just wondering if anyone else is having the same problem with Big Sur?

I think adding a pdf editing tool [like the one built into microsoft edge] to firefox would be a very nice introduction because it will make it easier to manage this type of documents without having to look for dodgy add-ons or sketchy websites, or even it will make unnecesary download specific apps to edit the file, and generally that is a paid option (i'm looking at you adobe). So please devs, if you make it possible, i´m sure the community will love this feature
