Open .pdf rather than save

Hello, Ever since a few updates ago, whenever I click on a .pdf, Firefox automatically saves a copy in my Downloads folder. I have changed the settings for opening a .pdf to "Always Ask," and when the pop-up opens that asks if I want to save or open with Adobe, I click "open with Adobe." This has the desired effect of opening the file in Adobe BUT ALSO the undesired effect of still downloading the file. I DO NOT want the file to download. I just want it to open in Adobe.

Cheers

My question concerns this Download Library that I found in version 98.

I do not like it now want it.

In doing a search to remedy this I came upon Download history window in support. It said to go to about:config page and change from True to False on browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel = false. I did this and this Download Library is still there.

How do I stop having a History of my Downloads?

I get the developers think the new features might be needed and good, and some are very beneficial. But, sometimes just leave things alone. At least have some setting in Privacy & Security to give those the option to turn it off. Was that not option? You all are coders, just add a few more lines of code. Easy for me to say.

Thank you Irv

Hello! Since my last update (yesterday, I think?), the predictions that pop up in the Firefox Google homepage search (center of the page, not the toolbar one) are in unreadable very light colors on white. I use a dark theme, and I have some vision problems. I can't find anywhere to change that particular color setting. Aaaand searching for a fix is hard since I can't see any of the search predictions.

I'd love any info on either how to change that, and if not, perhaps to report a bug.

Cheers, Regina

I have one particular PDF file that is very difficult to upload to Google Drive, using Firefox 98.02 on my Mac Book Air 2017 laptop, running OS 11.6. The upload says that it started, but never finishes. This particular PDF file uploads fine using the Safari web browser. It uploads fine using the Google Drive on the Desktop software. I've read the troubleshooting advice, cleared all history, cleared the cache, tried safe mode, refreshed the browser, reinstalled the browser, etc. etc. I might get this file to successfully upload once after doing all that, but after that it won't upload again. This behavior bothers me greatly. I seek advice here. Numerous other PDF files don't have this problem.

I have some serious doubts about Firefox that said here are three issue that are creating these doubts. 1 I have continued to see Japanese character in the DuckDuckGo Search Text Box. I gave up and and have now tried to use Google as the search engine seems to fix the issue. Very SAD Fix Not sure who is responsible Firefox or DuckDuckGo

2 When I open Firefox I would like the cursor to be placed in the Search Text Box.

   I see a lot of answers none of which work This makes the support help for Firefox close to   useless Sorry I am kind of tired of out of date answers

3 I find the pocket less than useful and would like to hide it. Once again out of date answers.

So If I can get an answer to number 2 and 3 I might continue to use Firefox but as of now I am spending too much time looking for answers to what should be easy fixes To BE CLEAR I am NOT talking abut the Search Bar at the top of the Page.

Many file types are no longer listed under Settings > Applications>Content Type at about:preferences#general. I used to be able to click on a file in an email like a Word or Excel document, and it would come up on my screen. Now Firefox asks me to Save them. I don't want to automatically save files without first looking at them. How can I get those file types in the Application list again?

I have attached a pic of the file types I have left to chose from. There used to be a lot more. How can I get back all the missing choices I have had there for years?

Add an option to load presets for Firefox settings. I have poor eye site. In order to read the text I am writing I have the zoom set to 170. Add to that the size and color of the icons it is difficult to tell what the icons represent. by a preset I mean when first installed give options to set toolbar height and width, select the color used or simply select black and white. Colors are pretty and icons look cool but are useless until you know what they represent.

 This support page is black and white. Other than the fact that many of your users will need to set a high zoom it looks pretty good.
