I can't find any way to add to the list of document types and applications. I know I must have done (because they are different from my wife's options), but now she needs to add one, and there is no immediately obvious way to do this. How do I add a new entry in the list in Settings/General/Files and Applications/Applications?

Thanks,

Tony

Yesterday, 2/4/23, all of a sudden Firefox won't connect to any websites. I push a shortcut button, or type in a website and the address shows in the address bar and in the tab the dot bounces left and right showing it's trying to connect but it never connects. I have no idea what caused it. There were no updates of windows or anything else. Ice Dragon web browser, based on firefox, MS edge, chrome, Brave, all work. Anyone have any ideas where to start troubleshooting? Thanks, Darren

Several websites (not sure it's website-related) are displaying some (or a lot) of unreadable text. If I copy the text and then paste it into a page in a text program, it all reads fine. What could be causing this, and how do I fix it? (Screen shot is attached.)

I am not ultra-technical so please make response clear.

For several weeks now I have been unable to sign in or track packages on FedEx.com. I have had to use Microsoft Edge to access FedEx.com. I never used to have this problem. I don't know what Mozilla did, but I wished it could be undone! I use a VPN, ExpressVPN, and thought this was the problem at first, but it is not. I turned off ExpressVPN and still cannot access FedEx.com. Same with using AT&T Broadband. I have tried cleaning my history/cookies and it has no affect whether I use ExpressVPN or AT&T Broadband. I went to FedEx.com on Mozilla and clicked the 'shield' and turned off Mozilla's Enhanced Tracking Feature. I still can not use FedEx.com.

I see no solution to this issue unless I can find some way to completely turn off your Enhanced Tracking software that you have added. It is ridiculous that I have to use Microsoft Edge every time I want to access FedEx.

What is the solution?

I only have one window open of Firefox, but multiple tabs open in that window. The primary monitor properly displays that only one window is open, however the second monitor shows that there are multiple windows open. Although this COULD be a Windows issue, I haven't seen it with any other programs, which is why I'm reporting it here.

I like to use the touch keyboard on my Windows 10 PC to type but when I open a Google Doc and full screen it, the Firefox window will fight the keyboard and close it. I can tap any input field and the touch keyboard for Windows 10 pops up and immediately closes. This does not happen if the window is not maximised. The keyboard comes up and works fine but covers the lower half of the window which usually means I can't see what I'm typing. I don't get this problem with Chrome which resizes its windows even if they're maximised to accommodate the onscreen touch keyboard, which is frustrating because I don't want Chrome to guzzle my RAM. Is this a bug or am I missing something?

Leading Zero Suppressed in Firefox PDF v109.0.1 64 bit on Windows 10

Was filling out pdf version of 2022 IRS tax forms and discovered leading zero is suppressed in Firefox PDF v109.0.1 64 bit on Windows 10. "Before" image is after typing leading zero but before 'enter' or moving to next field. "After" image is after typing leading zero and after 'enter' or moving to next field. The leading zero disappears.

Saving pdf does not change leading zero suppression.

To see if the pdf document was configured by the IRS to suppress leading zero, I opened the same form in Microsoft Edge v109.0.1518.78 64 bit on Windows 10. It retained the leading zero after typing then 'enter' or moving to next field.

While using MS Edge to complete pdf forms fixes my immediate issues, there still seems to be a defect in Firefox pdf.

Firefox creates a duplicate of itself on the Default Apps section after it updates from a Fresh Install of Firefox and the only way i have found to "fix" this was to reinstall the browser completely but it simply reappears with a duplicate of itself again after it updates and as far as i know it only does it after a fresh install with subsequent updates not creating any more duplicates

both entries just act the same and update at the same time synced with eachother instead of having a separate duplicate entry when you try to change the default apps
