I am the webmaster for a church website. As you will see about the collected data on my computer, I work on a Linux computer. Because of the pandemic, the church has been worshipping using livestream video run from the church's website. To aid parishioners with the service, we post pdfs of the Service Bulletin, Readings for the Day, and other aids to participate in the service.

Up until, I think, Firefox 87, in testing the webpage before publishing, I was able to open the pdf links in a new tab. Now, when I try to test the pdf links, Firefox prompts me to save the pdf and I cannot view it online. Given that the pdfs were generated on my computer and exist in my files, It is somewhat ridiculous that I'm being prompted to save the pages.

However, because I also have a Windows machine, I know that this is not happening on all of Firefox, just on the Linux version,

How can I alert Firefox to get this fixed. When I'm not acting as a webmaster, I have occasion to click on a pdf link and it is annoying that it will not display in the browser and and opens up a "save" box.

There are only a few things that I need on right click. Open in New Tab, save image as, copy link, copy link location. Only rarely do I use the developer functions, so that over time I am accustomed to accessing the Developer Tools from the Tools tab on the main menu. The fact that many of these tools that I do not use are now on the right-click menu are causing me to make errors. I subscribe to an online newspaper that is the first item I read in the day. I go through the front page of the newspaper, I right click on articles I want to read in a new tab. I am so used to doing this efficiently from older versions of Firefox in which the right-click menu always opened where I right-clicked and therefore at the "open link in new tab" selection. Now, what happen is that I react by instinct and find myself clicking the middle of the menu and not the top. This results in errors that waste my time and cost me time and frustration.

Having read a few other problems that other people have had with updates of Firefox, I have to add my voice here. I realize that there are legitimate reasons to change some things - but these things are technical and deal with internet security - not style. It seems to me that constantly moving things around (like menu bars and the like) interrupts a user's accustomed work flows and therefore not a benefit.

It seems to me that there are two possible solutions: One is to make every aspect of user preferences editable by the user. For me, that means the main menu bar is on the top, followed by the tabs, and the right-click or context menus are editable by the user. The other solution is to create two Firefox browsers - one for the traditionalist (I'm 82) and a new browser called "Firefox Superuser".

For now, I'd just appreciate it if someone could tell me how I can get the stuff I don't use off the right-click menu.

I apologize for my grumpiness, I realize you're all volunteers. But, first thing in the morning, having to try to remember that the right click menu might not be opening with "open link in new tab" right next to my cursor is more than I can manage. I automatically click and at least 80% of the time, I'm clicking the wrong thing.

Firefox worked fine for many months on my Dell laptop. Then, in April, I suddenly could no longer open it. I spent many hours "chatting" with Microsoft tech, and doing what she said, reloading Windows, etc. She seemed to think that Windows was interfering somehow with Firefox function, but finally, she gave up and said she didn't know how to help.

Once in a while, I can open Firefox and see its home page, but then in less than five seconds, it disappears again.

I use Windows 10 pro, version 2004. I have 64 bit system with 3.61 gb ram useable.

I have "anywhere" selected in the Windows menu that controls source of downloads.

Can anyone help?

I'll try to keep this concise as I am completely out of ideas to resolve this. I have been using Firefox without issue on my PC with Firefox sync. I have installed Firefox on my new Mac(2020 model, 32GB RAM, i7) and the performance within the browser is abysmal. Below I've tried my best to explain the symptoms. Pages are extremely slow to load(can take over 20 seconds) while I'm waiting for the page to load it stays on a blank page like about:blank for the entire time and then all of the sudden loads the page. sometimes it says "transferring data from [URL]".

Active add-ons

  • Bitwarden
  • BlockTube
  • Clickbait Remover for YouTube
  • Grammarly
  • HTTPS Everywhere
  • RES
  • SponsorBlock
  • uBlock Origin
  • Ultrawidify

Troubleshooting steps

  • Disabled all add-ons. This seems to somewhat resolve the issue.
  • Disabled all add-ons except uBlock Origin. The issue is there
  • Disabled just uBlock Origin. The issue is there
  • Refresh Firefox. Issue comes back once I sync my account(bring back settings and add ons)
  • Installed Firefox Nightly. Issue comes back once I sync my account
  • Created new profile, added only 3 add-ons(uBlock, Bitwarden, SponsorBlock), did not sync. Issue comes back after a little while of using the browser.

At this point the only way it seems I'm able to use Firefox without issue is to have no extensions. For me, this isn't a viable option. I'd love any and all advice as i am out.

Thanks!

Okay so last year I built myself a new desktop PC around August 2020. I was using an Android smartphone prior to that and had some bookmarks on it I wanted to transfer to the desktop. I mistakenly thought it would simply 'absorb' those Android bookmarks into the bookmark collection I already had on this new desktop, but after using sync, it straight up removed the desktop bookmarks that were there and replaced them with the android ones exclusively. Another neat little 'feature' is how the bookmarks were also completely erased from the Android device after this.

So once that happened, I restored my old desktop bookmarks, but then the bookmarks that were imported from the Sync from the android were now gone. My question is this: are those sync'd android bookmarks actually anywhere at all, like did Firefox automatically archive them somewhere just in case, or are they just lost completely? Thanks.

So, i have the following interesting problem. I have a new laptop, brand and model mentioned above. Which is part of a domain in a small company. Other devices in the same domain don't have any issues and they use the same software on them, so i doubt it is a software based problem.

Now to the juicy bits: 1. Firefox 32Bit works fine. Absolutely fine. Was pre-installed by Fujitsu and then removed by me. 2. Installed the 64Bit Firefox 88.0.1, same version that was just uninstalled. 3. Firefox starts rather slow, does not open any websites, struggles to open the top menu bar, does not open settings at all. 4. Doesn't matter if i used a profile from my previous machine, or a fresh profile created on install or through the profile manager of Firefox.

Even manually deleted the whole Mozilla folder from %appdata% to see if any lingering data was the cause. Still, only the 32Bit version wants to work properly.

Any advice on how to troubleshoot the cause?

I am currently running Windows 10 and Firefox 88.0.1 (64-bit) and Kaspersky Internet Security 21.3.10.391(b).

I have discovered an anomaly unique to Firefox which causes issues when using the Kaspersky Safe Money function for more than one website.

If you do not add the Kaspersky Protection add-on to both the Firefox normal browser window that you use for all browsing AND also to the Protected Browser window, when you try to open 2 or more websites that should have protected browers, you get a Run error when you try to open the 2nd website!

If you do add the Kaspersky Protection add-on to only the Firefox normal browser window, you still get a Run error when you try to open the 2nd website!

The reason this is unique to Firefox is that you do NOT need to add the Kaspersky Protection add-on/extension to either Chrome or Edge to make the Safe Money function work correctly for more than 1 website.

If you do add the Kaspersky Protection add-on/extension to Edge or Chrome, you only need to add it once, to the normal browser window, you do NOT need to add it to the protected browser window.

Surely this is a fault in Firefox and should be investigated and corrected or can someone explain why this happens with Firefox but not the other browsers.

I look forward to any information, advice etc that will help.
