When opening pdf's attached to emails they used to automatically be opened by my pdf viewer software. Then they started opening in Firefox on another tab, which was fine. Now I first get an error message from firefox where I need to click on "open site in new window" it isn't a site but a pdf?? How do I get it to go back to opening with Adobe instead?

Thanks, Jeff

Hello, I regularly open pdf files and other documents with local readers/writers by selecting the option "open with". My big issue is that the files are yes opened with the local reader, but they are also automatically downloaded in the "Download" folder.

Before files were stored in a temporary folder, and I would like to continue like that because my "Download" folder is exploding and it's a mess!

Or, at least, there should be an option to select where to download automatically the files when I select the "open with" option. So I can chose a folder that I now is to be trashed.

Thank you!

Many of the websites I access ask if I want them to remember my login info--username and password. For those that I trust, I indicate that I want them to remember this information, and for most I get an e-mail confirming that my device is registered. However, the next time I log in, I still have to go through the entire login. Is this a Firefox issue, and if so, how can I correct this?

I am trying to add a secondary email address (a Zoho email address) to my Firefox account (my primary is a gmail address). I receive the verification code in zoho email. I enter the verification code into the required space for Firefox to verify and accept that I am me and that's my email, and I get an error message that the code is invalid.

    I did this twice.  I checked that I entered the info correctly.  I entered the code within the 5-minute timeframe.  Both times I got the same message - the code is invalid.  It will not verify my secondary email address.  
   Very frustrating.

On my Windows 10 desktop, I have used www.bostonglobe.com for years with no problem. Firefox keeps me logged in and if, for any reason, am not, I click on the login link and Firefox fills in my login. Lately this does not work. I just updated Firefox and it still does not work. Bostonglobe.com loads but when I click on the login link all I get is a blank page. This works in Chrome and in Firefox on my Samsung tablet. I deleted all the bostonglobe cookies but this does not help. I have rebooted the computer and this does not help either. Any solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I use Mendeley Web Extension to pull articles and other things from Firefox directly into my Mendeley library. I will usually rapidly read through the PDF file online before deciding to add it or not. For some unknown reason, Firefox blocks the use of Mendeley on PDF file, for security reasons, and I can no longer add them to my library. Most references are only available as PDF files making the add-on completely useless. Is there a security feature that I can disable to be able to use the extension again?

Kind regards,

Mathias

Firefox 101.0.1 no cursor and blinking cursor Caret is off

About two days ago the cursor started disappearing / flashing when browsing in Firefox. It does not mater where the cursor is placed on the screen either the arrow or the hand will flash when moving. My system is a windows pro 10 system with all updates, last updates for W10 were made a couple of weeks ago, on Firefox whenever it asks to upgrade I do it.

Specifically: 1. If the mouse is stationary there is no cursor, if I move it the cursor flashes. 2. When the system comes up and I launch Firefox all is OK for about 2 – 3 minutes then the flashing begins. 3. If I stop Firefox ie “X” it and restart it the flashing occurs within 0 – 30 seconds. 4. If I restart the PC steps 2 & 3 repeat.

I have two other PC’s Windows Home, and Windows 7, as well as a laptop with Windows Home all with Firefox 101.0.1 all up to date all do not have the above issue. This does not occur with any other programs. I have two monitors, tried Firefox on each makes no difference same problem.

I have tried searching the internet and all I find is about Caret which is off. I uninstalled Firefox and installed it. That made no difference.

Any assistance will be appreciated.

Thank You

Bob
