I have it set in setting to open in Firefox. it is continuing to automatically download all PDFs and it is eating into my data! please help. I have to get this to stop or I will no longer be able to click on any PDFs with Firefox anymore. I have also tried setting it to always ask, but if I do that and then tell it to open, then it STILL DOWNLOADS THE FILE! I cannot understand why anyone would ever want files they just wanted to read to just randomly download. I am a genealogy researcher and used to click on dozens of PDFs a day to read, now I can't with Firefox or I won't have internet for half the month after I use up my data. There has to be someway to stop this, I don't like other browsers, but right now, if it involves a PDF I have to use a different browser. (also quite annoying to have to delete multiple files that I never wanted to download - I was using Firefox to pay a bill and downloaded it SIX times) Please help!

Hi there. I am an online student, and platform used for my course is SIMnet by McGraw Hill. I contacted their support team today as the SIMnet course will not even load on my computer. Their answer, switch to Chrome - Mozzilla creates too many problems. I am NOT switching, and am wondering if there is a setting I can change for it to work for me? Please help - I do not like Google!! Thank you

Hi there!

I'm curious about what happened to the 120Hz (and above) support? Disabling addons don't seem to change anything, Edge works without a problem on the UFO test etc. but firefox seems completely broken on 105.0.1 (64-bit) for now.

Anybody else with the same experience?

I am having trouble saving the correct website address for a specific login. The correct address I am trying to save is: https://bcbsfepvision.com/portal/ The address is automatically shortened to: https://bcbsfepvision.com when I save the login info. The problem is that when I navigate to "https://bcbsfepvision.com/portal/," the login/password info is not available, and I must type it in myself.

Is there a fix or workaround?

Thanx

Hi,

I recently had to switch computers. I have had a Firefox account for years and utilize the Firefox sync. However, I am unable to login to my Firefox account on my new computer. There is a "working" banner at the top but it never loads. I can access my account on Chrome but there is not an option to sync my data back. In the Firefox browser, it does not give me the option to sync.

I have had this with various versions of Firefox. Currently on 105.0.1 on W10 laptop. Todays example, I've logged into Ancestry, and clicked the link to get to my family tree. As soon as the page opens, it then looks like it goes behind sunglasses, (just the window, not the toolbar) and none of the links on the page are accesible on mouse hover. It looks like Firefox has protected the page. Not sure whether it is something I have done, it doesn't seem to affect many other sites that I can remember.. I use 'Strict' tracking protection - I've tried turning this off for the site, but no change.

So something off has been happening to firefox with me recently, I am having like visual errors and firefox has been acting weird lately, I remember yesterday when I was going to bed I noticed one of my tabs in firefox was flickering pink and what not, And I kinda thought it was a bug and closed itt off then closed firefox off and went to bed, Cue today same thing happened expect the effect was much more bigger, The screen was flickering alot with pink, Some display errors, And I am noticing pink lines that are still there ontop of my tabs and browser entirely, The other windows are not affected by it, Something is off, The screen was flickering in a way like I can see my desktop entirely along with the browser page and so on

I actually do not know the reason but I do feel like its firefox related, Yes I disabeled hardware acceleration and so far I still see the pink lines, Yet nothing is happening aside from the pink lines and I still don't trust it

I don't know what to do need help, Thank you very much

Hello,

This might be pretty niche, but I want to customize my bookmarks and save them to distribute across multiple virtual machines. These VMs run on non-networked hardware devices, that are accessed through non-networked local machines. The idea is to make the bookmarks how I need, so that they can be put on a dev stack and copied to new systems when imaged.

I can't use sync, due to not having internet connections locally or on the VMs. And I can't backup/restore configurations made locally because the changes have to be made through a domain controller (that's a VM, and also doesn't have Firefox installed) which will push configurations to all other VMs, including the local machine.

I've tried customizing through GPO, editing the registry, editing bookmarks.html, creating my own .json file; nothing seems to stick. I've also learned that renaming or deleting places.sqlite doesn't really help because it gets regenerated when Firefox opens a new window. Even tried a DB Browser for places.sqlite, in hopes to edit the file, which didn't help. Unsure where to go next, ideas or assistance would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Just wondering if any of the developers could add a domain exclusion option within the browser history settings where users could exclude the domains which they don't want the browser to record the history of.

Now many of you would argue that why don't you use private mode. Blah blah blah. But it's not the same thing. I gotta use my GMail, Google-drive, Outlook, or Facebook, etc everyday, so the private mode is not an option.

These domain URLs are not necessarily required to be stored and synced every day after day when nobody or at least 99% of people are not gonna use them ever.

Would be better, if users get the option where they can control which domains they want to keep the history of. This would offset millions and billions bytes of the data from Mozilla and also speed up and improve the history management.

Please share your thoughts.

I CAN'T ACCESS MY GMAIL OR ANY OTHER SEARCH ENGINE, CAN SOMEONE HELP WITH THIS

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Hi

I wonder whether you could help me

The OS is Windows 10

By the way, I’ve scanned over and over again, with different software, the computer for any malware, virus, etc, and it’s all clean.

I’ve used Firefox and bookmarks for years.

Lately, when I try to place (sometimes even when I’ve already placed it) the cursor on a bookmark (any bookmark) all the bookmarks (including the selected, “highlighted”, bookmark) roll away, upwards or downwards.

As for the selected bookmark, it disappears from view, even though, when I find it, I can see that the bookmark itself remains selected.

Weird.

What am I doing wrong??

In advance, thanks for your kind help

For example PHPMyadmin is rendered wrong - see pictures below: 1. FF (left) rendering in comparison with edge 2. and 3. PHPMyadmin after pressing CSS in the filter-field of the developpers tools. Then the rendering gets partly better but not yet good.

I tried the suggested changes in settings, refreshed Firefox and did even a complete new install. No changes. What can I try/do next? Problem exists since one or two days without changing anything at the server or client.

Firefox 102esr has almost every menu, popup and screen in dark mode - which I find extremely difficult to read, given I'm antique.
