Open Link In New Tab - PDF Files

Hi, PDF File handling has recently changed - For the worse for me and it's become really frustrating.

When I right click a PDF file link and select "open link in new tab", why does Firefox then ask me how I want to treat the file? I just asked it to open the file in a new tab, so it should be obvious what I want to do - asking again is illogical.

Not only that, before the file handling dialog box, it opens a new tab next to the tab I'm in and then closes it when the dialog box appears - When I select the unnecessary "open in Firefox" (I just asked it to open in a new tab), it now creates a new tab at the END of my tabs and steals focus.

I also get the file handling dialog box when I ask to "save link as", when logically I should just get the save location dialog box.

How do I get the old behaviour back?

Thanks folks

Turning it on again and restarting the browser makes it run smoothly again. I am using Xubuntu Focal Fossa LTS.

Anyone has any idea as to why this is happening?

Same problem with Manjaro on Raspberry Pi 4 - when "Title bar" is disabled video performance gets quite sluggish - I tested a lot to find out which one of my settings was problematic ... I don't know why this little modification behaves that strange, but it is quite a big deal for slow or energy efficient hardware ...

Why does opening in a new background tab work less and less?

It seems so simple. You're reading a page and run into a link you want to read later. You use the standard Control+Click to load it in a background tab leaving your present reading uninterrupted. But more and more often you're taken to the new tab immediately which means you are not only interrupted from your present reading but have to remember to go back to where you were (not a habit when you're used to opening in background tabs and closing them cleanly when finished) and find where you where on what may be a multi-page document. Often tens of pages. Wasted time.

Is there any way of making Control+Click work properly? One sure fire but more long winded way is to right click and hit T. That seems foolproof.

My Scroll-To-Top is not working anymore since the last update was installed. STT is 4.9.1 and I am using FF56.0.2 64 bit. I configure STT and it says saved at the top, but when FF reopens nothing was saved. Can anyone point me to the xpi download of a previous version please.

My desktop was upgraded from Windows 8.1 to 10 (now I wish I hadn't done it due to a host of problems and lost features) and now have lost my Firefox backdrop. The screen top above the tabs is now plain black. Did Firefox discontinue the backdrops? I had a white tiger backdrop which I loved. Now it is gone.

Hi All,

Our client has an issue since upgrading to the latest FF version. He’s running a few extensions: cookies/proxies/browser agents and having deactivated one by one determined the issues was the browser agent.

At one point it was only showing the error when accessing YouTube / studio but now it happens when trying to login to his Gmail meaning no access is given at all.


Note - Client has installed different extensions but faces the same issue

Any advice regarding this will be much appreciated

Thanks

The scroll bar on the right of my screen disappears when I sign in to "The Guardian". This started within the last week. It works OK when I sign in to my other on line subscriptions (NY Times and Washington Post) and all other places I access. It works OK when I do a "Safe Mode" load of Firefox. I have explored the few Add-ons and Custom Settings but have not been able to determine the cause. I am having this problem on any of 4 different computers currently running Firefox 81.0 and Windows 10. Microsoft Edge is working OK if I use it.

Any help would be appreciated.

First I have to say that I absolutely HATE HATE HATE how Mozilla breaks everything with every upgrade now. Hate it. It feels like getting bent over by IE all over again.

I upgraded from 68.something to 78.3 esr and now my tabs are teeny tiny and the one that is selected gets bigger and leaks into the web page (see pic). I already fixed the "tabs on top of everything" issue that the upgrade introduced, but now this.

How do I make my regular tabs and pinned tabs bigger like they were before? And stop the current tab from leaking over the bottom boundary into the web page?
