FF recently updated itself to 100.0.1 and since this time I have been unable to install any addons. Every time I try to install an addon, I receive the message 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt.' I have uploaded a screenshot which demonstrates this behaviour. This is just an example - all addon installations are affected. My existing addons are unaffected, but if I remove one and attempt to reinstall it, the same result occurs.

Opening pdfs via "system handler" won't work (but other file types work)

Hello

I want to open pdfs from firefox (snap 101.0.1) with the default application of the system (Xubuntu 22.04) and not open them in a new tab within forefox.

But it does not work, as if there was a problem with the system handler but only for pdfs and not for other file formats.

More details :

  • I changed Preferences/general/Applications for pdfs to use either "always ask" (and then chose "open" " With system handler" when asked) or "default system application". In both cases the pdf is downloaded but not opened. If I right click on the downloaded pdf in the list of downloaded files and then chose "open with system handler", nothing happens.
  • Opening the pdf inside Firefox works well and opening pdfs saved on my disk (outside firefox) as well.
  • Opening other file format by choosing to open them from firefox with the system handler works well too (tested eg with .torrent, .xls, .tif,...).
  • I tried to change the default system application for pdf (Atril) to other softwares without success (Okular, Evince).
  • If I try to open a .djvu file with the "system handler" it is opened correctly using Atril which is the also default for pdfs... So Atril works for .djvu files but not for pdfs...
  • I tried to replace the handlers.json file from my profile by a handler.json file from a brand new profile, without success (I still have a backup of my old profile file if needed). I did that because opening with the system application worked before and the bug appeared after I changed all applications preferences to "always ask" (and there were a lot of them in my rather old handlers.json file).

I'm lost...

Firefox automatically updated last night, and once again defaults to its own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job -- which wastes a lot of time every time I want to print.

I can't find a setting to choose my system printer dialog box as default. the solutions from last year no longer work (about:config, then tab_mo, then print.tab_modal.enabled, set to false.

Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser because the Firefox dialog box sucks.

On the opening splash page (when a new window has been opened) upper-center is the large firefox icon, then below that is the search dialog box, then below that is a series of icons (for me now, there are 8 of them). How do I add icons to this? I know how to remove, but I can't see a way to add the icons I use constantly.

For only the past 2 or 3 days when I open Firefox, there is NO taskbar shown at the bottom of the page. It's just disappeared and I haven't changed a thing! I checked the settings in windows and it's set to permanently show the taskbar. Why all of a sudden the change and how do I get it to restore on Firefox. This is NOT happening with other browsers I'm using!! This is beyond frustrating. I don't understand why things change from day to day without my intervention.

Hello,

I have had several problems with firefox add-on extension that keep disappearing, specifically metamask. I want to refrain from continuously re-adding this add on and have to setup up everything from scratch again.

Why does this keep happening? How to prevent this from happening in the future? Can I restore the add/extension?

Btw - there is a new folder on my desktop "old firefox data"

Please assist.

Thank you,

Hi to All.

Unfortunately, there are still pages where it is necessary for the diacritical marks of a given language to display correctly Niestety ciągle występują strony gdzie to jest potrzebne, żeby znaki diaktryczne danego języka wyświetlały się prawidłowo

well, most ad provider let you customize your ad preference I can allow virtual realitity devices ads and "turn off" android apps or food delivery apps however, they will completely ignore those settings if they can't show me an ad for my prefered topics specifically, I live in a very backwater rural town, I've paid a good sum to ship my VR equipment from another state, so it would be nice to see some games I can buy from their store, but of course, because I live in a backwater town and they don't sell vr equipment nearby, they will attempt to show an ad for something I can but locally, and you guessed it, they show me ads for ifood and uber eats, despite me telling them to not show me ads for android apps or food delivery I don't mind the ads per say, but between a major annoyance and no annoyance at all, the choice is obvious and no, I don't want white-list websites on ublock, if I could, I would left all websites show ads, if they were actually interesting to me instead of random junk I can find on the app store

I'm using and old operating system on my computer, and the latest version of Firefox seems to overtax my graphics card, even with the most mundane websites and functions. So, I had to downgrade versions to the one just previous to today's update to even get here. However, it makes you create a new profile instead of using an existing one. Is there some way to get around this?
