I'm on Mac. When I open a PDF in Firefox I get a print button and a download button. The download button does not offer a Save As option. It simply uses the name used in the browser - often this is a number or day or some other appellation that is less useful than allowing me to rename the PDF myself. Chrome offer to rename the file before saving but I hate Chrome.

Maybe I'm overlooking something?

Habe den Artikel zur Fehlerbehebung und bin alle Empfehlungen durchgegangen. Habe auch beim Website Betreiber angerufen, der meinte es sei ein browser Problem. Auch bereits firefox deinstalliert und neu installiert.

Alle anderen Seite laden, nur diese eine nicht.

Habe gestern mittels ccleaner nicht benötigte Sprachen und den Cache etc gelöscht. Kann es daran liegen?

Bitte um Hilfe. Die Seite ist wichtig für mich. Freue mich über jede Hilfe. Vielen Dank im voraus.

Beste Grüße Sebastian

eBay has a captcha to access the site. I do it and get a pop up asking to resend information already sent. If I hit resend if reverts back to the original captcha page, if I hit cancel the same thing. I'm in an endless do-loop and have to use another browser. Why? I have Ghostery but even when I paused it the same thing happened. I also turned off the Firefox tracking gizmo, no improvement. I'm using 84.0.2.

I was not able to check my bank account in Firefox browser because, there are two pages to login through, one is for username, the second for password, but after entering password, and clicking submit, it does not load the page, it just sits there doing nothing at all.... I then tried it in Chrome browser, but it did the same thing, so I thought maybe the site was having problems, but a quick Google search for isitdownnow showed that the site was up and running fine. Next, I tried it in Safari browser, and it worked. After that I opened Firefox again, and tried again, but it worked this time. Can anyone explain this to me?? Thanks in advance!!

Bonjour. Merci pour cet excellent navigateur, version 84.0.2 (64 bits). J'ai défini un mot de passe général pour accéder à tous les mots de passe enregistrés dans Firefox. Donc, je ferme Firefox et je le relance. La première fois j'entre le mot de passe principal et j’accède à tous mes mots de passes enregistrés. Très bien. Mais lorsque je ferme l'onglet "Identifiants et mots de passe" et que je retourne dans le menu "Identifiants et mots de passe", l'onglet s'ouvre à nouveau sans me redemander le mot de passe principal ! Donc en accès libre... Tant que Firefox n'a pas été fermé et ré-ouvert, les mots de passe restent en accès libre à quiconque... Il semble que cela soit anormal ? Voilà, bonne continuation à vous. Cordialement, B. COISSARD

I used to be abel to use Firefox, with all its problems, to access my Gmail accounts. Recently,since using Firefox ESR 78.6.1, all I see is gibberish. Other bookmarks work just fine.

Hi I recently switched to Firefox on my iMac and when I tried going to the Apple website to report issue with an App Store purchase, idmsa.apple.com, it just spins and spins. Works fine on Firefox on my iPhone. I've disabled add-ons and cleared history and set all security settings to allow everything, but the site won't load. Any suggestions what to do to get it working? thanks!

p.s. just tried with appleid.apple.com and it also spins and spins and doesn't let me login.

Wow... I just updated and am trying to use Firefox as my default browser yet again, however, yet again, it's RAM usage is ruining an otherwise good relationship. Why does this browser guzzle RAM so hungrily? I had to reboot it as I couldn't type any longer, without waiting every few letters before seeing them on the screen, and I've got 60 Gigs of RAM. But Firefox was using 22 of them!

This has obviously been an ongoing issue for years, both from my experience, and the 2,000 threads that come up in response to this issue. Come on guys, it can't be this impossible to create a functional browser that is more RAM efficient, what's the problem?

Oh, and it sure would be nice, given 2,000 results from my search, to be able to filter them by date. I'm using version 84, so threads dealing with version 50 or so, aren't going to be of much help...

Whenever I close and reopen Firefox now, my bookmarks do not come through and I can't restore the tabs that were open. Is this because Firefox now requires you to sign in? (I really don't want to do that.)
