Tried uninstall, update, troubleshoot mode, restart, clear cache, malware detect, task mgr, etc. Windows 10 software, drivers, firewall, hardware, memory, etc are ok.

Firefox hangs, no rhyme or reason, random pages, every hour or so.

Am I the only one having issue?

Hello,

I'm using Firefox 102.0 (64-bit) on Win 10. When I click on the download icon of email attachments or Whatsapp files, firefox opens the pdf files in a new tab instead of downloading them. All other file formats are downloaded correctly instead. How can I correct this problem, please?

Best regards, Giovanni

I recently upgraded to Firefox 102 on my machine running OS X 10.15.7 and started facing issues with improperly rendered text. See a screenshot of the Google search page for "малина" affected by this issue (screenshot 1). Moreover, other alphabets like Armenian get completely messed up, as opposed to Russian where only spaces and punctuation marks seem to be affected (screenshot 2).

I asked my peers running on OS X 12.4 to try and see if they experience the same problem but they saw no issues whatsoever.

I temporarily downgraded to Firefox 101 but would appreciate a solution.

On occasion with mulitple pages open on firefox it then stops opening up to any new page. I can be watching a YouTube video on page 1 while reading on page 2 or more, and then page 2 will no longer bring up new pages. Page one also stops going to any new site requested at that point. Although the curent page will still work. At that point I have to shut down the browser to regain control. What is happening here?

I use tabs within windows to keep track of to-do items/wish lists etc. I had about 5 windows open with anywhere from 10-30 tabs each, my firefox closed unexpectedly and did not give me the option to recover the windows and tabs as it has before. Any way I can recover these or am I screwed? Thanks.

Firefox created a second Downloads folder/library when it opens a PDF to view in the browser.

file:///C:/Users/Name/Documents/Downloads/NightSkyNotesJan2022OrionDetail.pdf

I seem to remember finding lots of temp pdfs and other files in a temp folder under user/appdata/local or roaming and having to delete this files manually from time to time. Putting the files in an easy to find folder is a good step but my Downloads Library/folder had previously been moved to D:\Downloads via choose new target from the library properties. D drive is an internal HD, C drive is an SSD. Why didn't Firefox just use the existing Downloads library instead of creating a new one on the C drive?

Ideally, if you are viewing a pdf in a Firefox tab it would delete the file if you did not download it so it does not clog up your drives. If I know i want to keep a pdf I would save to my chosen folder and view in Acrobat instead of reading in a browser tab.

I agree with a previous post i saw requesting an option for the user to specify a temp file folder on another drive when viewing pdfs to preserve some life on the SSD boot drive.

Windows 10, Firefox 101.0.1
