My FF is set so that PDF files are downloaded automatically. In principle, this should remain that way. Now, however, I would like a few PDF files from my own disk to be opened directly instead. I have thought up a workaround for this - which unfortunately (STILL?) doesn't work properly:

1) The files in question (so far only one, as a test) are renamed *.PXX. 2) In Win I have defined that these *.PXX files should NOT be opened with my generally used PDF programme, but with Adobe Acrobat. This WORKS. 3) Now I had to define in FF that PXX should be treated differently from PDF. I haven't managed to do that yet - the files are still written to the download folder - RENAMED *.PDF 4) Meanwhile I found some (as far as I know) "unused" extensions in FF, amog them *.IRC. So, I renamed my *.PXX-file *.IRC and defined in FF that *.IRC-files should be opend by Adobe Acrobat. 5) NEVERTHELESS - disregarding this definition - the *.IRC-files are NOT opened but "downloaded" to the download-folder AND renamed *.PDF

Does anyone haven an idea?

Printing cuts off content in some pages

While I appreciate the recent improvements to the Firefox Print interface and features, there are still lingering formatting issues that have existed for a very long time. The most common issue is that portions of content get cut off between pages. Here is one example:

https://www.nolas.com/home/#menus - click FOOD category near top - open Print (does not matter if "Save to PDF" or printer is selected) - default print settings

In the print preview (left side), printed page or saved PDF there are missing parts of text: - beginning of page 4 cuts off from "SHARE PLATES" to half-way through the first item's description. - top of page 8 (under "NOLA CLASSICS") one of the 6 items is missing entirely.

This issue remains even when using different scale factors.

Tested on current software: - Firefox 86.0.1 (new profile) - macOS 10.12 -through- 10.15

Showing all passwords in a list view as it was in the old password manager was really helpful. I tried to install this: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3062276

But unfortunately with the newest Firefox 84 it is not working anymore. I get an error message.

Is there any other possibility to reactivate the old password manager? There are countless of people and threads on the internet wanting this feature back. Mozilla made a step backwards here unfortunately.

Thank you for your help!

Hi,

Due to issues with a windows update, my computer went through 2 clean installs recently. After the first one, I was able to download Firefox, log in, and sync all my previous extensions and bookmarks. However, after the second clean install, I just logged into Firefox and it did not bring up any of my previous bookmarks or extensions. Where did they go? How can I get them back?

Please help. Thanks,

Hi

I’ve been trying to access some sites for a couple of weeks or more (from the last update) and an unsafe connection is identified to me. The page has no possibility to send Mozilla any feedback. The paradox is that even the forum Mozillaitalia.org results with an unsafe connection.

What to do in order to be able to enter the sites in which I have always entered and which are now unsafe?

Items in my Bookmarks toolbar (and the overflow bookmarks list) keep rearranging themselves. I put them back in order, then every time I open Firefox, they rearrange again. I've read through and tried everything suggested in the discussions and articles except the refresh, with I'd prefer not to do if it's not absolutely necessary. Nothing else suggested has worked. Any help will be appreciated. I believe this started after the last Firefox update. This is getting frustrating to the point I'm ready to stop using Firefox altogether. Thank you!

Starting about a week ago, Firefox has had periods where it would freeze for about 5 seconds, followed by working normally for about 10 seconds. In between cycles of freezing, there would also be periods where it functioned normally. The freezing doesn't seem to be triggered by anything specific. It happens when I'm scrolling, typing, or even sometimes when I'm doing nothing at all on a page. This also happens whether or not I have other programs open that could be slowing things down. According to task manager, I have plenty of spare CPU and RAM when it happens. I've tried turning off hardware acceleration, recreating the places file, and checking session restore as per this help article. It has also happened after restarting Firefox, so it shouldn't be a problem with that.

Hallo,

I have two firefox profiles with which I wish to share bookmarks. An easy solution is to create a symbolic link replacing the one places.sqlite file with a link to the file in the other profile, thus we're always just using one set of bookmarks and all is happy. However, Firefox keeps overriding my link; labeling the file "corrupt" and replacing it with a cached version. I need to know how to stop firefox from overriding my input and respect the changes made in the profile folder. I need to disable whatever mechanism is going on that is checking the files and reconstituting them.

About FF sync-ing feature:

As a test I deleted one book mark from FF desktop. Then I did a sync. I was expecting for that bookmark to be restored from the data that had been previously uploaded to the FF account. But it did not.

So the question begs to be asked, Why doesnt FF account have backups of our bookmarks (and other data) that we can download onto our desktop when needed?

I don't lose any bookmarks or history. I've uninstalled, and re installed. Same thing happens. This never happened previously and would love nothing more than to solve this mystery.
