pdf files fail to download in Firefox, but not other browsers. In particular these sites:

https://heinonline-org.ezproxy.socialaw.com/ https://1.next.westlaw.com/ https://www.medicare.gov/my/eMSN https://fc7.fastcase.com https://www.mlb.com/

However, I can download from non-password protected sites like:

https://www.irs.gov/ https://www.ssa.gov/ https://www.sec.state.ma.us/

Downloads work in other browsers. I've checked various items in the settings and none of them help.

I like Firefox, but if it won't, I will go elsewhere.

Hello, I'm looking to stopping **ALL** website Pop Up Notifications--NOT just selected ones. I've already gone to Privacy & Security-->Notificatications. This is feature is totally pointless. This feature assumes you repeadily go to the same singular site that causes pop ups --not random site you visit. I did check off the button at the bottom "Block new requests asking to allow notifications." My issue is NOT, NOT seeking to block "permissions" (I have never seen or been asked by Firefox to 'allow permission for website notifications')--I'm seeking to stop ALL website pop ups notifications that intrusively just appear at the lower right corner. I don't understand why there isn't a single button to stop these intrusive and annoying pop up pushes??? It's a no brainer. I hope you can help with a solution. Thank you in advanced.

Hello there. I'm used to pressing Super(Win key) + Grave(`) to type "`" because the Grave key itself is a global shortcut for opening the terminal window. It works as expected in the other applications, but not in Firefox input fields. If the site is capturing the key presses, it will handle the super + key as usual. For example, GitHub will surround the selected word with ` symbols on grave key press. This problem is not limited to super + grave, but any other letter. For example, Super + q is expected to produce the letter "q", but in Firefox it produces nothing.

I'm trying to identify why the Super + key behavior in Firefox is different from other systems and if I should open a bug or not. Maybe this is the same bug as https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1626609. Thunderbird has the same problem.

I have enclosed a screenshot showing what happens when I want to go to a new tab on the two computers I use most often. One is my desktop which has Windows 10 Home. The other is my laptop which has Windows 10 Pro. The Windows 10 Home was installed most recently and is the latest version of Windows 10, my tech guy told me; and also the latest version of Firefox 123.0.1. The laptop version of Windows 10 is older. The Firefox version is also 123.0.1.

My hope is that there is a setting I have not uncovered that lets me put some kind of mark on a new tab, as my laptop has had for a few years. This makes it very easy to open. The newer, later Windows version but same Firefox 123.0.1 on the desktop must be right-clicked in the space to the right of any open site, and then the user must scroll down to the "New Tab" line and click on it. Obviously this requires my user clicks and more time, simply to get a new tab that gives me a blank site that I prefer.

I appreciate whatever guidance or suggestions anyone can give.

I just want to stop a piece of my own history from being shown on "Firefox Suggestion", which was made with a firefox browser on my previous device and is relatively private.(I know I can do this by modifying "Search Suggestions->Show search suggestions ahead of browsing history in address bar results", but I would like to preserve the function itself). That device is permanently unapproachable, and so is that browser. I tried "Clear recent history -> Everything", but it didn't work as expected and that is still shown. I think clear all my history(not only those made on this currently used device) may help, how can I do it?

Hi all, I've been having this issue for a while. I am unable to view streams on YouTube or Twitch (Twitch will show streams as offline, whereas YouTube will not even show streams), and I have encountered a new issue where YouTube allows only 360p on videos. I have used the HTML5 Video Capability Test and seem to have an issue in that department (images attached). Even in troubleshooting mode, the issue persists. Any help is appreciated.

Is there a setting to avoid firefox swapping to new tabs, when ctrl-clicking search results in address bar?

Sometimes I want to search on multiple things through the address bar, but usually I search on google instead because every time I ctrl-click to open the searches, firefox automatically switches to that tab which means I have to swap back to the other tab, every time I open a new tab through the address bar.

It's only a problem in the search bar. Bookmarks and links on webpages open in new tabs, without swapping to those tabs.

I keep getting this message from Network Solutions when I try t read my webmail. We’ve determined that you are connecting to your email using an unencrypted client connection and your data is not safe. Where in Firefox can I make the changes?


This security update requires all email server connections to use an encrypted connection. We will make the switch to require encrypted connections on April 4th, 2024.

What does this mean for you? Read on to learn about the important actions you need to take to make sure your email stays safe and secure.

IMPORTANT! Actions that you need to take before April 4th, 2024:

   When setting up your email in a third-party client, you are now required to enable Outgoing Server (SMTP) authentication and SSL/TLS. This ensures a secure connection when you log in to your email. Learn more about these steps here.
   Set up or update your email account on your device using the server settings as shown below:
       Incoming Mail Server:
           POP3: netsol-pop-oxcs.hostingplatform.com
           Port: 995
           IMAP (Recommended): netsol-imap-oxcs.hostingplatform.com
           Port: 993
       Outgoing Mail Server:
           SMTP: netsol-smtp-oxcs.hostingplatform.com
           Port: 587
       Username - Your full email address, for instance, help@example.com
       Password - The password you set for your mailbox
   Review this list of mail clients that do not support TLS 1.2 (If you are using any of these mail clients, you will need to update to a newer version or use webmail to access your email)
       Outlook® 2007
       Outlook 2010
       MacMail on MacOS 10.8 or before
       Windows 7
   Review this list of Operating Systems that support TLS 1.2 (If you are using an older version, you will need to update to a newer version as listed below)

Operating System TLS 1.2 Supported OS versions Android Mobile Android 5 and newer iOS Mobile iOS 9 and newer Windows Phone Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 Windows Desktop Windows 8 and newer Mac OS Desktop Mac OS X 10.11 and newer


Please visit our Help Center for more detailed instructions.

Note: This security update requires action if you use an email client application to send and receive your email on an Apple, Windows-based PC, or Android device. Webmail Access will still be available.

The page isn't redirecting properly An error occurred during a connection to guce.yahoo.com. • This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

and this is the URL that I am redirected to: https://guce.yahoo.com/consent?brandType=nonEu&gcrumb=bWAMXTs&done=https%3A%2F%2Fmail.yahoo.com%2F

It works OK with Chrome, I just do not like Chrome! I made changes to allow cookies and that made no difference.

For example this page, https://yle.fi/a/3-11868513 , causes my Firefox to go unresponsive for maybe 10-20 seconds at a time, when scrolling up and down. Windows works fine. It's not the only one, I have found some other on that same news site, which use the same kind of construct for a page that contains both video and text.

When I open Firefox in troubleshooting mode, page works fine. But in normal mode, even if I disable all my extensions (except search engines), page still hangs.

On the other hand, I haven't encountered this kind of behaviour in normal mode in any other pages or sites. So it may be something very spesific that site uses on those particular pages. So it is a minor problem but because disabling all extensions did not help, I thought it might be worth bringing up.

Lately when opening multiple tabs in a folder on E-Bay, often this error msg occurs on the later opening tabs (folder of 60 tabs)

E-Bay says try Chrome browser, but that browser does not import the folders needed.

Years ago doing this solved slowness problems: Control panel/Internet Options/General/Browsing History/Settings/set disk space to use to 1024.

The browsing history would be deleted before the computer would be turned off.

E-Bay says try Chrome browser, but that browser does not import the specific folders needed.

Edge used to not allow folders with tabs.

I have divided the folder of 132 tabs, where this problem started, into two folders of 72 and 60 tabs, still happens about every fifth time the folder would be opened.

Any fix from Mozilla?

I saw a message that my Add-ons were disabled, and when I checked the Add-ons Manager , each of my many Add-ons had a message similar to: "1Password – Password Manager could not be verified for use in Firefox and has been disabled. "

Some searches in the forums suggest that that this can be caused my a certificate at Mozilla expiring, I seem to be the only one with this issue at the moment. All of my Add-ons came through the Mozilla store .

I am using version 123.0.1 (64-bit) on OpenSUSE Leap 15.5, and as far as I can see all of my updates are current (and from the official sources.)

What should I do next? I expect I need to wait for a certificate update or something at Mozilla, but if/when that happens how do I verify it did and re-enable my add-ons?
