I'm using 107.0.1 vers. At this link it states: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/view-pdf-files-firefox-or-choose-another-viewer#w_use-a-different-pdf-viewer-for-downloaded-pdf-files

Disable the built-in PDF viewer and use another viewer

You can also set a different third-party PDF viewer to handle PDF files, instead of Firefox’s built-in PDF viewer. To switch from using the built-in PDF viewer to another viewer: 1. Click the menu button and select . 2. In the panel, go down to the Applications section. (SO WHERE IN THE HELL IS THIS SECTION???) YOU CAN'T DO I never selected Mozilla to open any pdf and there's no where to opt out or change based on what all the troubleshooting tips say... All these tips must be located on a much older version of Firefox cause they ain't in my version OR they are hid under some dubious section... Pretty frustrating....when you want to use Adobe and can't cause I'm locked in under Firefox....don't know how that has happened unless it was done automatically under one of the many current upgrades that have been coming down over the last month.

Hmmm! The page you're looking for must be here somewhere... error code: 404 ERR_004 Maybe you'd like to go back home

(See screenshot.)

This does not occur on any other browser.

What is this nonsense?

Any fix for this bug? The basic function of the web browser is to load a webpage and Firefox is failing that. This happens several times a day. This also happens in Troubleshooting mode so no add-ons are responsible. The Webroot anti-virus and Malwarebytes have Firefox.exe allowed.

I click on a link and the webpage never loads. I copy the web address and paste it into a new tab and it loads. I do not have this issue with Chrome or Vivaldi. I currently have Firefox version 106.0 and use Windows

I've seen nothing that specifically says this can or cannot be done. It makes sense to me, a non-tech person, though. Why -- or how if it's now possible -- can I sync certain files I select between 2 or more computers? For example, I'd like my "Documents" to be the same on my computers. But I see no reference to doing that. Sub-text: IF that were possible, will Firefox automatically sync so that the resulting file is the most recent version (assuming identical file names)? OR, will Firefox bring all individual files if they are different in any way even if they have the same file name?

Thank you.

Does anyone make an effort to survey users before making changes? Some changes are just a bother but others are really imposing costs.

I see the disappearing HOME icon is a recurring problem. So, fine, I've restored the button. But my complicated half-dozen links have also disappeared and I have to reconstruct my HOME pages. Mine are complicated since they are a series of graphs (from Yahoo Finance), each with specific different parameters. It will really take me time to reconstruct this and I really resent that.

Similarly, where on earth did my plug-ins/extensions go? Again, they haven't just disappeared from the toolbar. Once I locate the icon and restore it, I find that they've disappeared from TOOLS > ADD-ONS AND THEMES. I have to go download them again? Why?

Naturally, all of this just happens to land on my plate on a very bad morning. Lesson learned: I'll make a bookmark folder to duplicate what the HOME button should bring up.

What is the point of all this?

Thanks for listening,

I got a pop-up to download an upgraded firefox, with assurance none of my info would be lost. It took me a 2nd download to get one that would install. Did the install, and all 250+ of my bookmarks were gone!!!

I have spent a few hours in file manager, and can't find anything re: bookmarks. Where'd they go? Where are they kept in file mgr.? I'm dying here!

Very sorry now that I did the upgrade and trusted firefox.

Somebody please help................

Re your (partial email & apology) sent to me by mistake:

"Greetings, It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. You know what else was humbling? Sending out an email by mistake, full of out-of-context Sagan quotes being used as placeholder text (thank you, Sagan Ipsum)."

So I looked for the humor in it, but then remembered that since you "partner" with the cursed WEF, it's more likely an expression of a severe mental illness that characterizes all who "partner" with them, & thus only deranged types might find funny.

Not sure which update caused the issue, since I've been delaying updates for a little while (maybe 15 days or so). Immediately after starting Firefox, the Intel graphics driver stops working, which causes Firefox to hang on a white screen. The windows warning is something close to "Intel graphics driver stopped responding and has recovered". The only way I can start Firefox is in troubleshoot mode. I tried disabling hardware acceleration, which solves the problem but I'd like to keep using the GPU so it's not really a good solution. So I forced Firefox to use the NVIDIA GPU (gtx 960m) on the NVIDIA control panel. This worked, Firefox starts and works as normal again but within just a few hours has already caused the NVIDIA GPU drivers to stop responding once, prompting Firefox to stop responding too and hang on a white screen. Restarting Firefox fixed the problem. This might have been a fluke but I'd like to keep using the Intel integrated GPU, if possible.

I'm using Windows 8.1 and my laptop has an i7-4720HQ (Intel HD Graphics 4600) and a GTX 960m. I'm using the latest version of Firefox 106.0.2

Any idea what might be causing the problem? I haven't had any trouble with either GPU on any other occasion

It is hard to describe in nerd language what's happening, but I'll try in human language:

1. Firefox frequently takes forever to even begin loading websites! 2. After today's update (16-OCT-2022) search engine search fields won't accept any text! 3. Absolute slowness on Firefox, but when I try other browsers, the problem is not there.

For many years Firefox has been trouble. I keep on trying it and I end up dumping it.

Why can't Mozilla hire people who CAN do it?
