I don't know whether is was the the 87 update or the 88 update, but the Linux version of Firefox does *not* permit the viewing of a pdf in the browser

I am the webmaster for a church website. As you will see about the collected data on my computer, I work on a Linux computer. Because of the pandemic, the church has been worshipping using livestream video run from the church's website. To aid parishioners with the service, we post pdfs of the Service Bulletin, Readings for the Day, and other aids to participate in the service.

Up until, I think, Firefox 87, in testing the webpage before publishing, I was able to open the pdf links in a new tab. Now, when I try to test the pdf links, Firefox prompts me to save the pdf and I cannot view it online. Given that the pdfs were generated on my computer and exist in my files, It is somewhat ridiculous that I'm being prompted to save the pages.

However, because I also have a Windows machine, I know that this is not happening on all of Firefox, just on the Linux version,

How can I alert Firefox to get this fixed. When I'm not acting as a webmaster, I have occasion to click on a pdf link and it is annoying that it will not display in the browser and and opens up a "save" box.

Good morning,

We have a problem on several machines with Firefox and RAM consumption. We use Outlook WebApp and when we open some mail in a new window with attachment, the memory consumption starts to be very high consuming space on the hard disk and leaving it empty. We do not know why or what is the process that causes this situation. It only happens with outllok webApp. (OWA) It doesn't happen all the time, it's a random problem. I hope someone can help me.

Thank you very much for your help.

Dear Firefox,

Will there ever be an option to quickly skim through parts of a webpage using "option+down" or "option+up" like there is in Chrome? It helps scrolling through long websites.

Thanks a lot, R

Hi.

Why would you remove FTP? It's not obsolete, I use it for work, and a good one third of my browsing is easily ftp sites such as NetBSD.org, ftp.gnu.org and others. FTP is still used heavily.

I really really dislike that it's gone. I'd gladly spend 30-40$ a year for a paid version.

I've been using you guys back to Mozilla, Firebird, Netscape and even earlier ..possibly related was NCSA Mosaic. C'mon guys.. which Millenial decided FTP was obsolete and uncool because it was old? It's how most of the Open Source projects and distributions still move data around. :~( This is the first time since I started using Netscape/Mozilla/etc that you've ever done something I don't like. The last thing I want to do is be forced to use Chrome or some other garbage. Please.. bring it back or some sort of external module we can pay for to get browsing back. Please! I beg you. (Trying hard to be really civil and nice here ..truely baffled that it'd be removed).

A.

I can use other browsers without images being blocked in yahoo mail but when I try and send an attachment as an image in the body of email instead of showing image it just shows text "inline image".

When I use other browsers and send an attachment as a image in the body of the email it shows the image without any problems.

When I receive an email with scanned images instead of seeing the image it shows text "scanned image".

The problem started in version 88.0 and continues in 88.0.1

I am unable to open my Firefox on my computer because I receive a message saying that my computer cannot find the following file: vcruntime140_1.dll. I have tried uninstalling Firefox, and the reinstalling Firefox. This did not solve the missing file problem. I have tried re-installing Firefox. This did not solve the problem. The file is still missing. When I click on my Firefox App, all I get is a blank screen. I am unable to use Firefox. This computer uses Windows 10 with a 64 bit. I have several other computers, with Firefox installed, and I do not have this problem on any other computers using either Windows 10, Windows XP, or with a recent version of Linux. What procedure can I follow to restore this missing file to this computer? Your help would be greatly appreciated. I have some knowledge of computers, but I lack technical knowledge. Any help you can give will be deeply appreciated. Thank you

I had an account with my primary email, and wanted to change that email while also maintaining all the info I already had in it. So I added a secondary email, changed it to be my primary, and the deleted the secondary (ex-primary). The problem is: while trying to create a new account with my old primary email, it says that I need a valid primary email to login, but won't let me create a new account with it. ¿Can I actually do this, or will I need support from Mozilla?

Thanks.

I've recently switched over from Google Chrome to Mozilla and I've noticed that the home page on Mozilla looks like doodoo. I have a nice theme, but the dark gray of the home page does not mesh well with it at all. Is there any way for me to change the background? I've looked around in the settings and at extensions but no dice. I've included a screenshot of the homepage so you can see how not good it looks.
