Suppose I'm reviewing financial documents in PDF from my broken in Firefox. They include highly sensitive personal information and when I'm done looking at them I want to close that PDF view tab and know the data's not hanging around in some temporary file store.

Other than purging my browsing history every time I do this, is there a setting for this?

So, I was trying to head to Bing for reasons I will not disclose due to embarrassment. So I went to open it from google and was given the Error:

 ''''''''The page isn’t redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.''''''''

So I cleared cookies and site data, nothing still got the error. I tried checking my PC for malware as stupid as it sounds, I just didn't wanna be asked to do it. Spic and Span. I even checked my protection settings which FOR SOME REASON turned themselves back on. I turned those off and still, no dice.

Any help would be appreciated

When I visit "elofootball.com" with Firefox, "Atlético" is shown as "Atl�tico". When the page is not yet completely loaded Atlético is shown correctly for a brief moment (first screenshot without country flags). After the flags are displayed "Atlético" becomes "Atl�tico" (second screenshot with country flags). So it doesn't seem like the characters themselves aren't supported by the browser because Firefox can display them, just not once the flags are displayed as well.

Edge and Chrome do not have this problem, they just show the page like you'd expect without the � in the place of characters with accents. Any idea what might be causing this and can it be fixed?

I am older and use the zoom function on many web pages. After this last update the Zoom function seems to be broken. I Zoom to 133% for a more comfortable read on a news site (Guardian)... go into the article and have to zoom again. Go back to the home page and it is fine until it finishes reloading and it snaps back to original size. Have to zoom again. None of these zoom setting remain consistantly. This has only become an issue since I restarted Firefox to install the last update.

Hi. Yesterday, I browsed thru my Firefox and/or GMail settings, and removed headers and footers from my printed copies of emails and web pages. Which is fine. However, at the same time I must have mistakenly changed a setting so that my print-ready version of an email or web page always displays in B & W, not in color. Although it will print in color, depending on how I have my HP printer set. How can I change that back so the print-ready Print Preview copy displays pics, etc. in color? I forgot what I did. Aarrgh! Please help! Thanks. John Darin

Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

I cannot suddenly download my bank statements I am getting this message within the bank website:

"We're sorry, there was an issue when trying to retrieve your documents." this has only happened recently there reply to the question is as follows: Thank you for your email.

We understand experiencing issues with the website can be frustrating. This error is normally received when there is a browser compatibility issue. If the current browser does not allow you to access the documents, we would suggest using one of our other supported browsers: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari or Chrome.

Also I am having problems getting into my messages an Error comes up around 3 times before I actually get into them.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated....thank you

Using an online accounting website, data entry is done through a data grid with a data control.

The accounting software allows for the option to use their own date selection control or to use the Firefox date selection control. I don't like the software's date selection control, I prefer Firefox's. However, when set to the Firefox date selection control AND if the fields in the data entry grid get wider than the screen, Firefox shrinks the date selection control to practically nothingness and the value in the control cannot be seen.

Is there something I can do stop Firefox from doing this?

I've attached an image containing 1. the data entry grid 2. the Firefox date selection control when the data entry grid is wider than the screen 3. the software date selection control when the data entry grid is wider than the screen
