Lately when I attempt to download any pdf file I get the 'file name'.pdf with 'failed' as the result (when I check the Download icon on the FF status bar). I looked in my download directory and I found these 'failed' .pdf files with 0 KB and also some files (same name).pdf.part. I changed the file extension (deleted .part) to .pdf and the files would open in Acrobat. Nobody likes inconsistent problems, but occasionally a pdf will download normally!! But it fails more than it works. Using FF 102.0 (64-bit)

I have a habit of keeping a number of pages open to return to under iPhone iOS Firefox. I also generally keep one “current” page open, usually a DuckDuckGo search page, when I close the app, expecting it to come up again immediately when I reopen it. For the past couple of weeks however, reopening Firefox blasts me about 10 miles up into one of my “saved” pages, instead of my “current” one. Why? Why won’t Firefox remember my current page after years of doing so just fine?

The message about the "Browser being managed by your organization" that shows up in Firefox settings, is new. I've been using Linux mint with Firefox for over a year on my own personal laptop and this message just showed up in my Firefox settings kind of out of the blue.. Can it be related to version 100? I was just trying to do something online. totally unrelated to the Firefox settings, and now I've spent a considerable amount of time trying to get rid of this policy. I tried to set the AppUpdate policy to true, but it still will not allow me to check for updates in the settings, or if I go under help, about. I do not use the laptop often, so this is the first time I've been unable to check for updates, and I would prefer not to have an enterprise security policy running on my personal laptop. I do not know how it came to be on the laptop but any help removing, or resetting the controls would be greatly appreciated.

- You updated and took my bookmarks away (something I needed and used all the time. How can you do that? Really? - also every time I go on line I get another stupid sign at the top right telling me to update again. I'm being pestered to do something that screwed me over. - I’ve tried the (old firefox date folder, thing) and it didn’t work. (so please don't suggest that) - I have to go looking for what bookmarks I have left (no more drop-down menu with all of them right there where over the years I've organized them)

I used to like this program, a lot. If I can’t get my Book marks back I’m done with FireFox. What the hell were you thinking?

firefox wrongly flags video as geoblocked

Hello Mozilla support

I wanted to view the video at this site -

https://www.daserste.de/information/reportage-dokumentation/dokus/videos/die-recyclingluege-video-102.html

(The site is German public TV)

Firefox (my default browser) says the video is geoblocked outside Germany, and my DNS proxy will not unblock it.

I tried again with Chrome browser, no problem, the video is not blocked, didn't need the DNS proxy.

Could this be a firefox problem? It seems bizarre - a small proportion of videos from the site are in fact geoblocked, most are available internationally. And always previously, whenever I encountered a blocked video, my DNS proxy would unblock it. But not for this video.

Any ideas as to what's going on?

Thanks, Fraidy . (Firefox 101.0.1 64 bit Windows 7)

I have a spare computer I don't use frequently, but which has a synced Firefox installation on it.

I am concerned that as I add and remove bookmarks, it will get further behind and, when it is reconnected, will cause deleted bookmarks to reappear or new bookmarks to disappear. Alternately I'm concerned that the change queue might exceed some size and cause sync to generally fail across my devices. My tablet got "stuck in the past" once and couldn't send or receive new bookmarks despite Sync seemingly working and connected, so I'm worried that perhaps that's what happened already.

On the other hand, if I were to remove that device from Sync, what happens if I were to add it back to Sync?

...If I deleted its bookmarks during or after disconnecting it? I feel like this might cause the bookmarks on my other devices to get deleted too.

...If I don't delete its bookmarks? I feel like this might cause any bookmarks I deleted in the interim to reappear.

Also, is there a maximum size to Sync? I have several thousand bookmarks.

I have been watching videos on paramountplus through firefox for over a year. Last week, they stopped playing at all. I can navigate the paramounplus website just fine and I am not getting any error messages, the videos simply don't start when i hit play. I spoke with support at paramountplus and they said it was because I wasn't using chrome as my browser. I did download chrome (reluctantly) with the agent on the phone and the videos played just fine. I have not made any adjustments to my computer or installed any new programing. Everything is exactly as it was when the videos were playing fine through firefox. Any ideas?

The Historic Houses Association (www.historichouses.org) site has an option to show a map of interesting places. When I view this map in Firefox on Android or Windows 11, the icons show up correctly. For instance in the example map, next to Lincoln. In Android/Windows the icon shows a small castle in a drop pin while here in a Linux desktop it just shows a cross hatched box. The link to the web page still works. The roads in the Android/Windows versions correctly show A1, A46 etc. But here in Linux, you can just make out the road numbers behind the vertical hatching. Over a long period I have seen this has occur on a number of sites but I think that the maps are probably (cannot prove it) Mapbox/OpenStreetMap. But when I look at OpenStreeMap it self, the Road Numbers are fine and when I add a layer involving tags, they show as normal.

I know I could address this inquiry HHA but they will simply say 'they do not support Linux'. The site works in other environments so why not Linux? Also, as I have said, it has occurred on other sites in the past (though I must admit I cannot remember which ones and when - I tried a few while writing this support request) Is it likely that the web pages are being downloaded with a catalogue of Icons but this fails in the Linux version of Firefox? Would this account for the road numbers being corrupted as well?

The PC is running a fairly new (last 10 days) installation of Linux Manjaro with Mate desktop. However, this has been happening for some time (a couple of years) during which time, I have used Linux Mint, Debian and Manjaro, with Mate and Gnome desktops. Firefox is used as provided by Linux Manjaro, including Noscript and Adblocker - I have tried viewing this page with both disabled. The only changes I have made to Firefox settings is to enable 'when you open a link .... switch to it immediately', 'search for text when you start typing' and set 'browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab' to false.

I have put up with the problem because it only affects me, however I am about to load Linux Manjaro on to computers for other less computer literate/tolerant people who will be using similar maps. It would help them if I could get a fix.

Thanks for your time
