I use html pages on an internal hard drive that link to pdf documents. For some reason since Version 91.0.2 was installed I can not get the pdf documents to open with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.The new version insist on opening the pdf's in the Firefox web browser. When I click on a pdf link at an external website the files will open in Adobe Acrobat. I used the code below to test the open in Adobe Acrobat execution and it works on the w3School example. When I run it strait from my hard drive the document opens in the Firefox web browser.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Title of the document</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <h1>PDF Example</h1>
    <p>Open a PDF file <a href="datasheet_cube-model-715.pdf">example</a>.</p>
  </body>
</html>

Please let me know if there is a solution. Thank you,

When they updated to 89, large spaces were created in between the bookmarked web sites when the window unfolds. So the bookmarks at the bottom don't fit in the window, and to get to the ones I can't see, I have to click the arrow at the bottom. But making it worse, is that if I do go to the bottom, the next time I open the bookmark tab, the list will open at the bottom (it doesn't revert to the top). So I'd have to scroll up to get to the ones at the top.

I list my bookmarks in the order they're in so I can get to the ones I go to most often as fast as possible. So they're at the top - I don't have to scroll far to get to them. I also use the "Other Bookmarks" tab since that's at the top. But sometimes that's hidden and I have to scroll up to get to access that as well.

Also, this update changed the size of the command windows - the copy/paste window, the "open in new tab" window, and the window to get the correct spelling of the word. They're so big, they run from the top of the screen to bottom, instead of a small square. So you'll have to scroll way up to get to the command or word you want.

I can't stand this.

There was a simple work-around. Changing the proton preferences to false. But they removed them with 90. I posted a message on these boards a few weeks ago asking for them not to be removed. Of course it didn't do any good.

There supposedly is a "fix" to this, but it has to do with CSS - whatever the heck that is and I'm not even going to attempt to figure it out. Fixing this should NOT be complicated at all (like the proton preferences). And besides, even that CSS thing won't bring everything back to what is was. So why bother?

More scrolling, bigger command windows, etc., are not that big of a deal, but that's not the point. Why can't they leave well enough alone? What part of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," do they not understand? If I wanted a tedious way to access my bookmarks, I'd use Chrome!

I know it won't happen, but how can we get them to reset the bookmarks and command windows back to the way they were? Is that asking too much? Ask a silly question...

If their objective is to lose Firefox users, congratulations. It just might work.

I am trying to restore the take screenshot icon. The suggested remedies do not work. Take screen shot does not come up as an option, no matter on which part of the page I right press. Also, control + shift + s does not work. Finally, the screenshot icon does not show up in my list of icons to be transferred to the toolbar, so I can't do that either. How do I fix this? I use screenshot a lot, especially the option to take a shot of part of a screen.

The tab under Inspect Element -> Inspector -> The column right beneath filter styles column has this feature that suggests you some css properties. On my browser they get filled in more than once, endlessly I might say (without me pressing any button). This makes it very hard to add any css styles and I'd like to know how to stop this behaviour.

Capital One virtual account "eno" add-on does not work. There have been several complaints on the web about this. Will it be fixed??? I prefer to use Firefox as a browser and I am wondering if Capital One is intentionally forcing people to use another web browser. The Google Chrome extension I added to Firefox does not work. I want to use Firefox and may need to find a new virtual credit card provider if Capital One is not compatible with Firefox. It used to work wonderfully until they obviously changed something.

Thank you

I don't know why FF decided that the tabs should be on the bottom of the page away from everything else in FF 93 but I don't like it. Is there a way to put the tabs back at the top of the page so it's up there with the menu bar and address window? Where it's easy to see and work with. You know like it was before FF fixed things...

Hello Firefox support team. When I open a window (application, data folder or whatever) in front of firefox, then the window doesn't disappear properly when I close it. Bits of it remain (see images) and I have to click on the menu bar or outside the firefox window to get rid of them. It's getting a bit annoying - doesn't happen al the time, but regularly on a seemingly random basis. The problem has existed for a while now, since two or three updates ago. Any clues as to what's going on? Thanks,

Fraidy.
