I'm NOT a computer geek. All I know is that Flashplayer is no longer supported, and I can't figure out how to upgrade HTML5.3, or how to download it, and everything I have read is so technical that I can't understand it. Can someone PLEASE make it simple to understand for the average elderly person just wanting to enjoy using groups and marketplace on Facebook? I'm sick of not being able to see the images that other people upload. Yeah, you probably think I'm stupid. I am not stupid, but I never learned computer programing...I only learned how to pull up a browser and work in Microsoft Word! Why does everyone have to explain everything in such technical terms, and why can't somebody just provide a link to download HTML5.3? Why is that so hard? I'm on Windows 10 (which I hate!) and I finally removed Google Chrome, and I am currently using Mozilla Firefox and I'm afraid if I upgrade/update it, nothing will work. It seems 2020 not only killed millions of people, it's screwing with people trying to use the internet too!

New post overwrites older post in Wordpress (problem FF 80 i 81, no problem FF 79 and orher browsers)

After updating Firefox to 80 and 81, I have a problem adding entries in Wordpress. I add entry No. 1 - it's OK. I add another No. 2 - there is a PROBLEM. New entry No. 2 overwrites entry No. 1 for me. Firefox 79 did not have this problem. To be able to add a new entry, I have to restart the browser (I have in the settings delete cookies and browser history) and then I can add another entry. In other browsers this problem does not exist, so it's a Firefox 80 error, which also appears in 81. I checked only one of my installed wordpress. This looks like a problem with cookies or temporary files.

Po aktualizacji Firefoxa na 80 i 81 mam problem z dodawaniem wpisów w Wordpress. Dodaję wpis nr 1 - jest OK. Dodaję kolejny nr 2 - jest problem. Nowy wpis nr 2 nadpisuje wpis nr 1. W Firefoxie 79 tego problemu nie było. Żeby móc dodać nowy wpis, muszę ponownie uruchomić przeglądarkę (mam w ustawieniach usuwanie plików cookies i historii przeglądarki) i wtedy mogę dodawać kolejny wpis. W innych przeglądarkach tego problemu nie ma, więc to błąd Firefoxa 80, który pojawia się też w 81. Sprawdzałem tylko na jednym moim zainstalowanym wordpressie. To wygląda na problem z cookies lub plikami tymczasowymi.

I used to be able to print any web page/document by pressing "CTRL + P" and then pressing "ENTER". I print about 40-50 documents a day at work. Firefox decided to make an update where the "Print" button is no longer selected by default, so pressing ENTER doesn't do anything. You have to manually drag the mouse down and click it. Does anyone know a hotkey to print without using the mouse?

I know it sounds silly, but dragging the mouse 50 times a day to the print button when it used to be instant is making me want to switch to Chrome again, since they're pretty much the same thing now.

PDFs are always downloaded and local copy opened instead of in-browser

Hello, at some point in the recent updates (with FF 80? I can't say as I have skipped a few updates over summer and only recently updated again to the most recent Beta), the way in which my Firefox browser handles PDFs has changed. After quite a bit of research and scouring through other threads I haven't been able to find a way to reverse it. I do hope there is...

-PREVIOUS BEHAVIOUR- 1) When I clicked on a link to randomsite.com/example.pdf, FF would open the PDF within the browser, either in the same tab or (if I requested it) in a new tab or window. The URL line would show "randomsite.com/example.pdf 2) The only exception was where a website had forced the PDF to be downloaded, in which case the dialogue asking me how I wanted to open the file would appear. In earlier days, in that case I had to pick Adobe or Preview or similar, more recently the dialogue also allowed me to open the file in Firefox. In that case, the URL line would show the local URL, i.e. "file:///Users/Michael/Downloads/example.pdf"

-CURRENT BEHAVIOUR- 1) What now happens is for any PDF I click on whatsoever, Firefox forces me to download it. Depending on what I put in about:preferences, I either get the dialog window asking me to make a choice, or it directly opens a new Firefox tab, but crucially it still downloads the file and shows me the local URL of it.

-WHAT I WOULD LIKE- A way to revert to the previous behavior where for 90% of PDFs, I never downloaded them but just viewed them in-browser. I look at a large number of different PDF files online every day for my work and I certainly don't want to download all of them and having to de-clutter my download folder all the time.

-WHAT I HAVE TRIED- - I went to "Applications" in about:preferences. I can set the relevant entries for PDF files to "Always ask" or to "Open in Firefox" but even with the latter set, it still downloads them and opens the local copy, rather than not saving a local copy in /Downloads/ at all. - I have checked in about:config and "pdfjs.disabled" is set to "false" as it should be

I don't think I have any extensions or add-ons related to PDFs, in any case I haven't installed any new ones recently.

Any clues appreciated, my overflowing Downloads folder is grateful.

I think adding a pdf editing tool [like the one built into microsoft edge] to firefox would be a very nice introduction because it will make it easier to manage this type of documents without having to look for dodgy add-ons or sketchy websites, or even it will make unnecesary download specific apps to edit the file, and generally that is a paid option (i'm looking at you adobe). So please devs, if you make it possible, i´m sure the community will love this feature

I have always used ebay and paypal with firefox until last week when it changed during checkout having purchased an item

It allows me to select payment method of paypal then asks for user name and password, then it re-directs me to a screen which asks if I want to save the details for future use, I select not now and it goes off via another link to paypal and then puts up a blank text free screen with a green circle spinner in it and theire it remains forever ????????????

If I log in to paypal seperately all works fine as does checking out in the exact same way in internet explorer so it looks like a broken or blocked link within firefox ?

I have spoken to Paypal who inform me that it is a Firefox issue..................

Can anyone help please ?
