This is a very recent issue for me. A couple of days ago "tel:" links stopped functioning. I click on a callable link and nothing happens. I checked default applications, and tel: isn't even listed there. The first time it happened there was a dialogue box asking me what application to use, but after that nothing opened at all. I build and monitor websites, so I'm constantly checking these links for functionality.

Please DO NOT remove the option to disable the FF98+ way of handling downloads

I was looking for a solution to the VERY ANNOYING problem of having Firefox download PDFs I simply wanted to read from Firefox but not keep. I found the solution to that problem created by the Firefox devs themselves (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370409#answer-1488645) and was going to leave it alone. It was just yet another obscure about:config setting to FIX a regression introduced by Firefox devs, no biggie, ALL firefox users are used to doing that by now since devs keep implementing solutions that look for problems instead of the other way around, but then someone said that you guys might get rid of the ability to disable this in the future. PLEASE DON'T. This "new way" of doing things is filling up MY HOME folder on Linux, not even my download folder. Instead of getting rid of this setting why don't you MAKE IT EXPLICIT in the downloads section. It's the least you can do since you created a problem that solves nothing. Most users who can't remember to download a pdf they were looking at won't remember how to look for it in the downloads folder either. You will just clutter people's download folder with JUNK for no reason and eat at their storage. I'll say it once and I'll say it again: the biggest advocates for Firefox's rival browsers are Firefox devs themselves smh.

It keeps asking me to UPDATE and I keep clicking DISMISS. I want to turn off update checking. I keep asking for this feature to be restored, and no one is listening. It seems to me that what we want as users no longer matters anymore. I DO NOT WANT Firefox TO CHECK FOR UPDATES. I don't like being nagged.

UI scale changing after Youtube fullscreen

(sorry for my english)

I recently uprgraded Firefox from 102.0.1 to 109.0.1. UI went bigger, but I already searched that I had to create ui.textScaleFactor and set to 100 in about:config and to change browser.display.os-zoom-behavior to 0.

After these changes UI went normal again. Except one case: when I go to youtube and go fullscreen, then when I go back from fullscreen, my UI is going to bigger again - despite ui.textScaleFactor is 100 and browser.display.os-zoom-behavior is 0.

I need to restart Firefox and after restarting everyhing is normal (UI is not big).

The problem is: UI is going to bigger after youtube fullscreen and I need to restart the browser to go back to normal.

Firefox version 109.0 (64 bit) I have 2 Laptops, A and B. Laptop A: about 2 years ago Adobe and Flash quit the business, Firefox was doing ok then after an Firefox update videos would not play, I have to use chrome to this day, Had Windows 8 then updated to 10, no difference Laptop B: Everything was good until a couple of weeks ago January ? 10-20?? 2023. Just after an Firefox update my Facebook would not fully load, I can only see a couple of post followed by 3 post that only show a outlined box with an error occurred and if I click on it or anywhere else it kinda of locks up and does nothing. I can use Facebook on my cell phone (no Firefox) and on Laptop A (chrome) so nothing wrong with Facebook. I tried turning on-off, all that stuff. Tried using MS Edge still would not load fully. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled, no help. I updated Windows 10 to 11, I can Run Facebook thru MS Edge but still cant thru Firefox. Just seems like Firefox doesn't like videos. Has my time expired with Mozilla Firefox?

You used to be able to "Paste and Match Style" by either right-clicking and selecting "Paste and Match Style" or by pressing cmd+shift+v. This seems to have gone away in recent versions. I don't use it too often, so I'm not 100% sure when this change was made, but it is not there in the latest version. This is essentially required when pasting from certain apps into a rich text editor on a website. OneNote, for example, requires this. Now if I want to copy something from OneNote into a rich text editor (like a GitHub issue or Stackoverflow answer) in Firefox, I have to first paste it into a text editor and then copy again to paste it in the browser.

I'm attaching two screenshots one of the context menu when pasting into the body of a GitHub issue in Firefox from OneNote and another of the context menu while doing the same thing in Chrome.

Is this expected? It seems odd to remove the feature when it makes working between other widely-used apps difficult.

I've been using firefox's built-in pdf editor and I know it's saved my edits in the past, but the file I'm working on right now never seems to save my annotations and I'm not sure why. I've saved it half a dozen times with the same name as before and changing it, and all I've managed to do is get more copies of the unchanged file on my computer. Does anyone know why this is happening?

I have a user that is unable to open Firefox. When she tries, she gets a popup that says Firefox is already running, but is not responding. I have followed the troubleshooting guide, but I am still having this same issue. I uninstalled, and reinstalled Firefox twice with fresh downloads from the Mozilla website. We are still having the same issue. Unless I close Firefox through task manager, the window will keep popping up.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Hi - Suddenly after using Firefox for many years I cannot open several of my financial-banking sites on my laptop. After entering the password, the browser goes back to the log-in screen. Starting again repeats this circle. I have tried turning off enhanced tracking but there is no effect. This problem occurs on these sites: new.alterna.ca, alternabank.ca and motivefinancial.com. Oddly enough, easyweb.td.com still works to access my account. On my android mobile, logging in with Firefox works fine on all these sites. Can you help me resolve this issue? I don't want to have to start relying on Edge or Chrome! Paul Thomson
