I cannot save credit card information. I never get a prompt for it so I decided to check the settings. I see that there is no option to add any credit cards anywhere. I reviewed previous questions asked about this saying to go into "Privacy & Security" but the credit card section isn't even there.

In earlier versions of Firefox, in the options area, there was a place to limit cache size to whatever you wanted. I no longer see this option and I would like to be able to do this. It makes Firefox run faster and limits the writes to my Hard Drive.

I have an old Thinkpad on which I have been running Windows XP to maintain access to Autocad. I have recently repaired the unit and it is running XP and Autocad but I need Internet access for which I need Firefox. How can I download a Firefox and Installer that will run on this system???? The Thinkpad is a R50p, 32 bit. I presently have access to the Internet through the Internet Explorer that comes with the Win XP disk via hard wire to the router but it will only handle 1 search before it crashes.

Hi there,

I'm unable to view PDFs in Firefox 60.1.0esr using either the built in viewer or Acrobat Reader. When I click on a link containing a PDF, I receive an Open/Save As dialog box to view the file external to Firefox or save it to a local drive.

I've read a few different threads similar to this that all seem to recommend changing the Application Action for PDF/Portable Document Format. Unfortunately, I don't have PDF, Portable Document Format or any other Adobe related Content Types listed in the Menu -> Options -> Applications section. Can somebody please help? I love Firefox, but this is a major drawback.

For info: Internet Explorer is able to open/view PDFs within the browser, so the issue seems to be tied to the Firefox installation.

Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure if this is my Firefox acting up, or just the aftermath of Utorrent installing Web Companion, restoring sessions in Firefox hasn't been possible. Firefox does remember my history, but it shows no options for restoring session or restoring tabs. I've already done a refresh, I've deleted web companion and run CCleaner and Malwarebytes Adwcleaner and they show my system is clean, but I still can't get restore sessions to work.

What's going on, and how can I fix this?

Firefox no longer seems to be syncing my bookmarks among devices. In particular, the bookmarks I add on my work iMac do not sync to my android phone or my home macbook pro. I have done the following things to attempt to get things working:

1. Turned off firefox sync on all devices and then back on. 2. Deleted my firefox sync account and recreated it. 3. Deleted and reinstalled firefox on both my android phone and my macbook pro

I have also gone to about:sync-log and see that I seem to have lots of sync errors. I've attached a screenshot of the sync-log screen. I can't seem to attach the txt file of the latest error log, so I'm attaching two screen shots of it as well.

If anyone can help me out, I'd certainly appreciate it!

Edit: Here's a pastebin link of the error log: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/9086433

Google Chrome has an option to save a web page as a .pdf file. With this option when you save the web page it preserves all of the embedded links. I can create a .pdf file using Firefox, but the embedded links are not preserved. There are numerous add-ons associated with .pdf files. Does anyone know if there is an add-on that will allow a web page to be saved or printed as a .pdf file and have the embedded links in the file?
