Downloaded PDF's don't always contain .PDF file extension and aren't able to be opened without manually adding extension. This isn't always the case, but is consistent with various different websites - e.g., downloading a w9 form from IRS website works fine, but downloading my bank statements or insurance bill leaves me with a generic (no extension file) in my downloads directory.

I come from using google chrome and have never had any issues printing a pdf from gmail preview. When trying to do the same thing on firefox a new tab opens normally and the pdf appears to load (as shown by the progress highlight in the taskbar icon) but all I get is a blank page in the new tab. Is there any way for the pdf to load in the page and print?

TIA

This was originally happening with the ESR version of Firefox (I can't remember the version number. I have since downloaded and installed the latest release, currently on 75.0 (64 bit).

The problem is that whenever my internet connect changes, such us unplugging Ethernet , disconnecting from a Wireless network or connecting to my organization's VPN, Firefox closes unexpectedly. There are no error messages, and it does not generate a crash report.

The problem was consistently replicable on the ESR, and then seemed to go away for a day or two after I installed 75.0 but now is back to being very consistent.

I have tried a refresh, and tried running in safe mode, and the problem persists.

Everytime I need to go file browser or terminal console and change the file name and extension to the correct one prior to open the file. I tried to reset the firefox browser but it doesn't solve the problem. Attachement below for your reference.

Sites that use WebGL fail for me on Firefox, and in the 'WebGL 1 Driver Renderer' field of about:support, I see the message:

WebGL creation failed:

  • Refused to create native OpenGL context because of blacklist entry: FEATURE_FAILURE_GLXTEST_FAILED
  • Exhausted GL driver options.

I haven't been able to find information about this error by searching on these forums or the web.

It should be noted that WebGL works fine in Chrome on the same machine.

I'm running Ubuntu 20.04 with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 card, running nvidia-driver-440 from the Ubuntu apt archive.

Version: Developer edition 76.0b4 (64-bit) Problems started recently, when FF is started it hangs. It shows 4 process in the Task manager. I have to sort it in the memory utilization way, such that top is the highest memory consumer. Then I kill the last 3 to get it working back. Also the 4 processes of FF do not indicate "not responding" which is strange.

The killing of last 3 ff process and keeping 1 seems to fix the issue but it has to be done manually every time. Not sure what is making the FF hung in first place.

My coworker and I have an issue with firefox where, at the beginning of a call, our mic doesn't transmit for about 5 seconds.

I have tried clearing cache and cookies, restarting my computer, updating firefox.

I have also tried both manually accepting microphone permissions, and having it remember my choices.

We are both running Win 10, on separate networks, and we don't have this issue on other browsers

I have a Windows OS with Firefox that works normally on my network. Inside the Windows OS, I also have a virtual machine running Ubuntu 18.04, with Firefox installed inside there as well (easier to keep things sandboxed as much as possible).

Whenever I connect to a VPN (used for work), the Firefox inside the Ubuntu VM works normally with no issues. The Firefox in the Windows environment won't load any new pages, but works fine with tabs that are already open so long as they don't attempt to change pages (so for example, a chat page continues to function normally).

I cannot seem to find any solutions online, however the things I have read suggest that Firefox (Windows) is not refreshing its internal settings based on the network change.

I've got workarounds that will get me by in the short term, but I'd like to get this solved anyway.

I'm currently using Firefox 76.0b7 and I noticed that Firefox seems do have problems when High Contrast Mode was enabled.

It's simple to reproduce: Windows-Key + L (Windows Lock Screen) At the right bottom corner enable switch on high contrast mode. Than switch off high contrast mode while still in lock screen. Logon again

My Firefox then shows only a blank window, altough it stills is responding. Actually my kid tends to mess with my computer while I'm AFK, this I how I noticed it.
