I use to click on PDF files and they would open and not download to my download folder. Well now every time i click on a PDF file it downloads it. I have tried every option in settings/general/apps and they still download in a folder. So I thought I would try MS edge and it does the same thing. Is it not the browser and was it in a MS update? It has never done this before. I don't want all these PDF files downloaded!

'Use autoscrolling' and 'Enable DRM' settings keep being unset

Lately, Firefox unchecks the 'use autoscrolling' and 'play DRM-controlled content' options sometimes (but not every time) when it starts. Other settings don't seem to be affected. It does seem to unset both at once, never one or the other at a time.

I have begun using Firefox routinely on two computers, both signed into the same sync profile. My best guess is that maybe one profile is overwriting the other? Both of these options are set on the second system, but maybe there's something going wrong with the sync?

Thanks, Patrick

I've been using Firefox for over 10 years. Slows down to a halt. It happens when opening a new tab or googling. I hit enter and it stops working. I've reinstalled FF3 times and it keeps failing.

I have virus protection and I'm running it without firewall. I'm on windows 10.

Thanks for any help.

Hi. I've been having this problem with my iMac for sometime, but now it's affecting my Macbook Pro, as well. Both machines are 2015, running OS 10.15.7.

They have problems loading webfonts (I get the annoying question marks). I tried creating a new test user, and the issue persisted. Any ideas on what I should do?

Thanks!

In the past week or so, Firefox has unexpectedly "frozen" and does not respond. I have not loaded any new programs during this period. The only way I can get Firefox to run is to end all the Firefox processes in Task Manager and restart it. I also noticed that there are usually 9 firefox processes running in Task Manager.

Video, including TV-channels is always choppy in Firefox due to disk swapping. I have just refreshed the browser and it did not help to any extent.

However, if I open the same video in Chrome, it is smooth, always (!) And I do not close Firefox - it is still running in parallel to Google's browser, increasing swapping needs of the system (but it is not a problem for Chrome at all).

Please let me know what I can try here. The problem is probably in the method of data caching on disk in Firefox.

Thank you!

Recent issue, last few days. Unable to access Microsoft One Drive online without first having to Refresh Firefox each time. It is then accessible for a short period of time before the address link again breaks down into an incomplete address that does not open One Drive. I've repeated this process a number of times and each and every time the only means of access to One Drive is by Refreshing Firefox. Access to One Drive is fine on other browsers. I've cleared the cache, and run Firefox in Troubleshoot mode, but the only thing that works, and does so consistently, is to first Refresh Firefox. It will then go to the correct address for One Drive for a short period of time, before again breaking down into an incomplete forwarding address. I prefer using Firefox, but regular access to One Drive, without all these unnecessary steps, is a requirement
