Mozilla Firefox ver. 50 not prompting user to install Java plug-in for legacy website

I have a user who runs SRS/Crystal Reports on their Windows 11 Lenovo laptop, but every time we go to the website where a Java-enabled pop-up window for viewing spreadsheets is supposed to load we keep getting a "A plugin is required to play this content" error message, but no option to install/approve the running of Javascript.

I have downloaded and installed the JRE and JDK on the endpoint device, but still no luck getting Firefox to load it. I am running the 32-bit version of the web browser, not 64-bit, so I am kind of stumped about how to proceed from here.

Is there a place I can manually download/install these Java plug-ins?

Thanks.

After a forced update, firefox stopped giving the popup that lets you choose what to do with the file.

A temporary fix is to go into options and set "Always ask you where to save files", however this is clunky, and much much slower, so is there any way to get this popup back?

If not, then i will have to migrate to a different browser for safety, since this new "Feature" can be easily abused by hackers and malicious websites.

The menu in selected websites do not show typical icons. I only see words and they are in large font; the words run over each other. (Please see attached screenshot for one website.) This issue renders functionality of the website inoperable. This issue happens to about 40-50% of the websites I interact with.

For the same website in Chrome, this issue does not occur.

How to fix this in Firefox? Thank you.

Up until today, PDF files would open automatically in Adobe where I could look at the file and print it. Today, Firefox will only allow the file to be downloaded. This causes me grief, an extra step. One of the main reasons I use Firefox is for this feature. Is there a way to change settings so that PDF files will always open in Adobe?

Amazon.com works on Firefox on my second desktop computer and on my iPhone. It does not work properly on my primary desktop, this one It does work on my desktop using Edge. Everything in Amazon.com works on this desktop except I cannot view my previous orders, the link in the upper right corner ""returns and orders." It begins to load but the orders do not load. I cannot see any of them.

I uninstalled Firefox, ran Ccleaner to clean the registry, then it's Health feature, I probably should have restarted after doing that.

I installed a new download of Firefox twice; it fails.

I have at least one extension that has had a later version than what I have for days and firefox is not updating it even though everything is set to auto-update. i hate to have to uninstall/reinstall it since I will lose all the settings I have in place. Any ideas?

The developer says firefox is just waaay behind on extension updates and it isn't their fault.

Like the title says, whenever I try to zoom out of an image to make it smaller, it causes the image to zoom out very far in just one scroll "tick".

To be more specific, I'm talking about just scrolling (not using ctrl+scroll). An example would be with Piskel.com where you simply use the scroll wheel to zoom the canvas.

Zooming in is perfectly fine, but when I try to zoom out it seems to zoom out by 3 or 4 ticks. On some websites, such as Piskel, it even it zooms the image out all the way making it very small and impossible to see (It does it with just one scroll tick).

My question is if there is a way to change or fix the zooming, making things zoom out more incrementally. (I recently switched from Chrome which didn't have this problem)

Due to a rebuild, I just reinstalled Firefox and sync'd up to regain my bookmarks. In doing so, I ensured that the Bookmarks Toolbar is always present. But as you can see from the attached image, while the bar is there, there are no icons. When I move my cursor over the bar, nothing appears, nor can I click on anything. When I click on my Bookmarks icon and toggle to the Bookmarks Toolbar folder, I see all of my prior settings there.

I have subsequently uninstalled and reinstalled. Same result.

Any ideas?

I had the same problem like the link below when I use firefox.

https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/tjxh7s/videos_freeze_when_window_isnt_in_focus/

So, did what the instruction says and it solved the problem regarding discord.

But, since I changed that setting, firefox doesn't remember my google login or dark skin settings of other websites (it was always automatically logged in when I use YouTube. Not like it remembers the password).

How can I solve it? I resetted firefox multiple times.

In the last few days Firefox has become blurry on YouTube videos and also when displaying "regular" TV channels on YouTube TV.

I have attached one screen capture of a YouTube video with Firefox in troubleshoot mode and one screen shot from Chrome at practically the same second of the video. Both represent the quality of the entire video in each browser. In the case of Firefox, the same blurry image occurs on YouTube TV.

Also in the case of Firefox, the image is the same (i.e., blurry) regardless of troubleshoot or regular mode. In the attachment, troubleshoot mode was enabled.

Thanks

I had two Firefox windows open, one private and one not, and a lot of tabs open on both, and while I was browsing the internet on the non-private tab, suddenly both of them close. I reopen Firefox (or it reopens itself, I don't quite remember) and it shows me a message telling me about how I can save articles on pocket to read them later instead of keeping lots of tabs open. I restore my session, and most (but, bizarrely, not all) of my tabs come back, but then, I try to log into gmail, and I never get past the stage where it asks me my email adress, I keep re-entering my email and clicking on the next button and it just loads the same page again, and when I try to log into crunchyroll it brings me to a page that just keeps loading and stays black without ever being truly loaded, and when I try to log into twitter everything stays black too except with a twitter logo in the center. I can still go to some other sites on Firefox, and I can still go to twitter, gmail, youtube and crunchyroll on Google Chrome, but twitter, gmail, YouTube and Crunchyroll don't seem to work on FireFox and I don't understand why!
