FF 113.0.2 Win 7 64 Bit

When I read a pdf online it gets downloaded even though FF is set to always ask. When it asks I choose open with FF or open with Adobe Reader . Both downloads the file to my download folder. It doesn't ask what foder to download to even though I have FF set to ask where to download to in settings/general

I tried setting browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to false as here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370494 but it didn't help

Hello, as of the last week, my Firefox wont open any Excel 365 scripts, pop-up windows are enabled, I have tried with my Firefox account in multiple different Windows 10 PCs - none worked, there is no problem in other browsers.

What could be the reason?

Thank you

Since i have my new laptop, i do not get twitter videos, bbc news working. Youtube and vimeo does work! Guess its about html5? Have checked mediasource and javascript settings in about:config and they are okay. Do not have this problem in brave browser.

Anyone has an answer?

Thanks in advance!

In the past, going to Wikipedia in Firefox automatically opened a search box to type in a search term. However, with the recently updated Wikipedia interface, Firefox no long opens a search box, so the user must: (a) stop typing (b) grab a mouse (c) click on the magnifying glass icon just to enter a search term. To demonstrate this, please go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page and you will see there is no search box and you have to manually open the search box.

However, this works perfectly in Chrome. Going to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page automatically opens a search field to easily type into.

Will Firefox be updated to allow immediate access to search field in Wiki? Please see attached .png file and thank you for listening! CW

I opened a Teams meeting invite which opened a web browser page in Firefox. A drop down appeared asking if I wanted to allow Firefox to typically open the invite in the Teams app. Normally I click no, but clicked yes. Now when I open a teams link it will repeatedly open the Teams invite tab in Firefox. I can kill it by closing the browser, but sometimes I have to do that 2 or 3 times.

I have managed to remove permissions for teams by clicking on the dash button on the teams page but it continues to do it. And when it's spam opening the tabs I can't stay on any page long enough to do anything as it prioritizes the new tab.

other menus like the pop-up bookmark list menu is fine. i only have this problem with the download menu and the bookmarking menu. i only remember this happening after i started to tweak and customize my windows 11 os, so maybe something in that process happened to break the text now but i have no idea where to look. i have cleared the startup cache, refreshed firefox and even uninstall/reinstalled it completely fresh (this is also what made me believe this is an os problem).

I have just updated Firefox to 106.0.4 (64-bit), the latest version. The first issue was that all my add-ons and extensions were disabled, and I had to manually re-enable all of them.

The next issue is that I cannot now minimise Firefox. I have tried the published fix - Go to the menu, then "More Tools" then "Customise Toolbar" and finally untick the "Title bar" on the lower left side. This has no effect.

Can anyone suggest another fix? I am using Windows 11 (not yet updated to 2022 H2 - am waiting for this to become stable).

Firefox is my default browser. I clicked on a link in my email and it came up on Edge, and asked permission to open in Edge. I thought it was just for that link, but ever since, all my links are opening in Edge. I checked my computer settings and confirmed that Firefox is my default browser, but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

When I am typing in a search request in google, the type disappears frequently and I cannot even correct it because the whole line disappears. I thought this was happening when I misspelled a word but it seems to happen in other situations also. This is very annoying.

For over a week now I am receiving a popup from 'The Spruce' with the popup header being Mozilla Firefox (see Spruce.jpg). The popup has a facility to disable notifications from www.thespruce.com and I have selected this many times yet the popups keep coming several times a day. (see Spruce2.jpg). I have also visited the Spruce website and there is no unsubscribe link. I didn't subscribe in the first place and had never heard of The Spruce before this. Why is Firefox facilitating this spam that won't be disabled?

Mac Dock won't disappear when I put youtube video (or other things like google slides) in fullscreen

Hi, I am using the newest Mac Air 15" with M3 chip, with the latest version of firefox (123.0.1) I have found an issue where when I put YouTube videos in fullscreen mode, the dock will not disappear like it normally would. The only workaround I've found is to put firefox in actual fullscreen mode (which then makes the dock disappear entirely), but I would prefer not to do as I typically maximize my screen instead. I'm assuming this is a bug on firefox specifically as fullscreen mode for videos/other things works normally in Chrome and Safari (which I also maximize screen), with the dock disappearing as it should.

I don't know if anyone else has encountered this issue though (as everything works fine on my older Mac...) Hopefully this can be resolved soon? I hope this makes sense :")
