Whenever I go to a web page that has twitter or instagram content, I have to right click and open the specific link in a new tab in order to see it, which is a pain in the butt.

I've opened the same web pages in Opera or Vivaldi, and there I can see the embedded content. Why can't I see embedded content like this in Firefox?

Please, can someone advise about this? I do not see any known bug with this code. I did not have this problem before this upgrade.

Thank you, Martin

Some sites are missing favicons making the toolbar useless if I have to use text to identify them. I quit using FF because of this about a year ago as all the solutions on here did not work. Seems as though FF could fix this internally as it is not a problem on Chrome, IE, Edge or any other browser I have used. Why can't FF fix what seems to be very simple problem? Came back and it is still a problem. Again all the listed fixes that I have to initiate, have not worked. Why can't FF fix this through an update. I am not the only one who has this issue and it is exclusively a FF problem. Not a computer expert but this seems to be a VERY easy fix via updates especially since it has been an issue for literally years. Don't want to go back to Chrome as I like all that FF stands for, but... Thanks for reading

I have been facing this problem for quite sometimes. I have set the download location of Firefox browser to the Download folder of my laptop /home/inferni/Downloads. But sometimes when I download any file the file gets downloaded to a different location of my laptop /tmp/mozilla_inferni0/<filename> . This gets really annoying when I have to work on the file and it is nowhere to be found in the download location of my laptop and then I have to open the browser and track the file via the download section.

I tried to reset the download location and even reinstalled the browser but of no use. Earlier I used to work on ubuntu 18.04 LTS and then I switched to Fedora 32 but still the problem persists.

Thank you!

I keep getting a Microsoft Edge download banner when I visit websites using Firefox as my browser. I have selected Firefox as my default browser in the Default Apps settings. I have installed an ad blocker, and turned off every notification switch I can find in Windows settings. I have taken ownership and changed permissions on every Microsoft Edge folder and file on my laptop. Then I deleted them all. I edited the registry to prevent Microsoft Edge from being downloaded or running at start up. I installed Winaero Tweaker and selected the "stop all ads in Windows 10." I still get the banner. Is there any way to turn this off?

New change?? No longer different PDF handling for in-browser vs. Download panela

On FF v78.0.2 (Win 10/64-bit), it used to be that I could open PDF links within a website using FF's built-in PDF Viewer. However, after saving them to disk, when I opened the PDF from the Downloads panel, it would open in my preferred 3rd party app. This was desired and worked perfectly.

But this seems to have changed! I either have to commit to the built-in always, or an external app always, irrespective of whether I am opening from a browser link or the download panel.

This is a terrible behavior. FF should open PDFs in the download handler (like ALL other file types there) with the OS's preferred PDF handler, which, in my case, is not FF's built-in Viewer.

If open a PDF in the built-in Viewer and save it from there, why would I want to re-open it in the built-in PDF viewer when opening from the download panel?

FF's built-in Viewer is great for a quick view of a PDF, I quite like it. But if I take the time to save it, I typically want more advanced functionality, like highlighting, filling in forms, etc. It worked perfectly before, please revert and stop fixing things that aren't broken. Or at least differentiate between the download panel and website links. Is there any hope in submitting a bug report?

The browsing history works fine, with one exception: once you click on an older link to reuse it or even to simply look at it, the older link is removed an replaced by the new one.

This is very disturbing whenever you need the older link's timestamp as a proof you accessed the corresponding page at a given time.

Is there any possibility for the user to avoid this behavior?

Over the last few weeks Firefox is not printing statements correctly from my online bank. Other browsers e.g. Safari, Microsoft Edge are working fine. I have Firefox on a MacBookPro (El Capitan) and a PC (Windows 10) and both have exactly the same problem. The image is far too large for the page and much text is lost. Switching to landscape doesn't help. It appears that something has changed in Firefox recently which is causing this. Thanks

If extension gather some private data about my activity, like for example https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/clipboardhelper/ which gather my clipboard history.

"This add-on needs to:

   Get data from the clipboard
   Input data to the clipboard
   Store unlimited amount of client-side data
   Access your data for all websites"

How to assess the resulting privacy risks?

1. Isn't there insignificant chance these data leak out thru other extensions? For example on Andorid (i am on Windows) i think that i heard that the apps has some common storage and it was/is possible one app read data of other app. Maybe it is not true and likely does not apply on Firefox on Windows.

2. or this extension send my data out to author or such? Btw. is there(why not) setting which would by default disallow extension to send data it gathered away via internet? And user would have to allow it on prompt.

I need to make the Tabs and Bookmarks Toolbar taller, and increase font size and embolden the font in these for someone with very poor vision. I am using a 32" monitor with large font, and 150% on Display scaling, but still need these areas larger and with more prominent font for easy visibility.

The version of Firefox is 78, and all the options I have seen do not work on this version. Does the Mozilla organization not care about assistance for people who need extra assistance?

Hi everyone, i have a website where i have to delete a certain element in order for the website to display correctly. I am doing this by right-clicking on the element, selecting "Inspect Element" and then i simply click delete node and close the object browser. Since i visit that website regularly i wonder if there is any way to make the object browser to remember that i want that element to be deleted on every visit to this website? Or do i need an Addon for that?

Thank you in advance and best regards!
