Screenshot of error attached. Happens when I'm in Sharepoint and click on Conversations for Sharepoint group (screenshot attached) When I copy the url to another browser it works fine. When I copy and paste into Firefox it still fails. I reset Firefox and it sometimes helps and allows me to click once, yet when I come back and click the link again I get the same error. Error details: TypeError: NetworkError when attempting to fetch resource. Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. Correlation ID: 12f77a9f-300c-b000-22aa-a5e92ccf8eaa Date and Time: 9/17/2020 11:12:12 AM

I chose to add troubleshooting info or whatever yet I don't know if it added the version... I'm using 78.2.0esr (64-bit) and MacOS 10.14.6

Login credential saving and prefill has been working great and synching across devices extremely well for quite awhile now. Very impressive.

Unfortunately, I have encountered a website where credentials appear not savable. I verified the domain is not listed as one that should be excluded from this process. I also tried the solution described at this link which involves saving a javascript as a bookmark, then using that bookmark in the course of logging into a site where credentials are not being saved.

I am wondering if you can verify for me that this domain cannot have its login credentials saved by Firefox and if possible, explain why this is the case. The domain is washingtontimes.com, the signin link is in the upper right corner of the page if you go there.

I recognize this hard to check if you do not have an account with the site in question. My hope is you can see something to explain what I am seeing. This is a big ask, so I want to express special appreciation for any assistance or information you might be able to provide.

Thank you.

When I click Bookmarks in the menu bar, and let up on Bookmark this page, nothing happens. When I check my bookmarks nothing has been added. I am used to a popup window that allows me to choose which folder to put the new bookmark in. It no longer appears. I tried reinstalling Firefox and this did not help. What do I do to restore Bookmarking capability?

Hi All -

I have been using Firefox for a while now. I have customizations using userchrome.css file. But after recent upgrade of my Firefox to Firefox 78.2.0esr few of the userchrome.css changes are not working. Especially changes to do with the URL dropdown box for customizing background color for bookmarks.

Attached is userchrome.css file from my side.

I already have legal style flag enabled from about:config. But still the issue happens.

Can somebody help me fix this issue?

thanks!

I have quite a few tabs open in Firefox on an old iMac that I keep open for research purposes. I do this instead of bookmark to save having to reopen them every time. When I migrate the old iMac to a new one, will Firefox remember those tabs and reopen them upon launch?

Firefox just upgraded to 80.0.1 . . . on Mac OS High Sierra . . .

  1. 1 Open new browser window
  2. 2 Go to : http://www.Google.com/maps/
  3. 3 paste or key an address into the "Where?" field, and
  4. 4 BOOM Firefox immediately closes the Google window.

On a Macbook Pro, running Mac OS High Sierra, 10.13.6 FireFox version 75.0 works perfectly, and Google Maps works perfectly.

(Except for the annoying notices to upgrade, which is what was done, finally got tired of getting the upgrade notice so she upgraded and BOOM Firefox doesn't work on Google Maps. So now she's using Safari for Google Maps)

-(

Tip : If the upgrade doesn't work, then don't send the upgrade notices!

I'm having trouble switching tabs. I'll try to click on a tab to switch to it and nothing will happen. I'll wait a while and nothing will continue to happen. It tends to be the tab next to the one I'm currently on. If I switch to a different tab further away from the one I want to go to, it sometimes let's me go to whatever one I go to.

I first reported this problem in February 2020 and still have no solution. I am now using Firefox version 80.0. When I click on an external link, like a link embedded in the body of an email, two browser windows open. One window is the homepage and the second is the URL of the external link. This only happens if the Firefox browser is not already opened. If the browser is already opened, the external link URL opens in a second tab as expected. I've already followed directions to change the action for a content type and reset actions for all content types in article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-repeatedly-opens-empty-tabs-or-windows but it did not fix the issue.

I'm on Mac. When I open a PDF in Firefox I get a print button and a download button. The download button does not offer a Save As option. It simply uses the name used in the browser - often this is a number or day or some other appellation that is less useful than allowing me to rename the PDF myself. Chrome offer to rename the file before saving but I hate Chrome.

Maybe I'm overlooking something?

PDFs are always downloaded and local copy opened instead of in-browser

Hello, at some point in the recent updates (with FF 80? I can't say as I have skipped a few updates over summer and only recently updated again to the most recent Beta), the way in which my Firefox browser handles PDFs has changed. After quite a bit of research and scouring through other threads I haven't been able to find a way to reverse it. I do hope there is...

-PREVIOUS BEHAVIOUR- 1) When I clicked on a link to randomsite.com/example.pdf, FF would open the PDF within the browser, either in the same tab or (if I requested it) in a new tab or window. The URL line would show "randomsite.com/example.pdf 2) The only exception was where a website had forced the PDF to be downloaded, in which case the dialogue asking me how I wanted to open the file would appear. In earlier days, in that case I had to pick Adobe or Preview or similar, more recently the dialogue also allowed me to open the file in Firefox. In that case, the URL line would show the local URL, i.e. "file:///Users/Michael/Downloads/example.pdf"

-CURRENT BEHAVIOUR- 1) What now happens is for any PDF I click on whatsoever, Firefox forces me to download it. Depending on what I put in about:preferences, I either get the dialog window asking me to make a choice, or it directly opens a new Firefox tab, but crucially it still downloads the file and shows me the local URL of it.

-WHAT I WOULD LIKE- A way to revert to the previous behavior where for 90% of PDFs, I never downloaded them but just viewed them in-browser. I look at a large number of different PDF files online every day for my work and I certainly don't want to download all of them and having to de-clutter my download folder all the time.

-WHAT I HAVE TRIED- - I went to "Applications" in about:preferences. I can set the relevant entries for PDF files to "Always ask" or to "Open in Firefox" but even with the latter set, it still downloads them and opens the local copy, rather than not saving a local copy in /Downloads/ at all. - I have checked in about:config and "pdfjs.disabled" is set to "false" as it should be

I don't think I have any extensions or add-ons related to PDFs, in any case I haven't installed any new ones recently.

Any clues appreciated, my overflowing Downloads folder is grateful.
