When I create a tab by clicking on a link, normally the tab will open to that link after a small delay. But some tabs just sit there, seemingly dead to the world. I've tried refreshing by hitting enter, or when possible (which it usually isn't) the refresh button on the taskbar, but nothing happens.

If I create a new tab, and cut and paste the link from the old one to the new one, usually the new one will open right away (after the usual delay). Meanwhile, the old one just sits there.

This has happened before (in much earlier versions of Firefox) in a small percentage of cases, but it is now happening with some frequency. I am currently using version 78.0.1 (64-bit).

As the title says, every time I press ctrl, the bookmarks sidebar opens. I've checked what my shortkeys are and it shows that the bookmark sidebar should be opened with ctrl+b, but it opens and closes every time I just press ctrl. This makes it impossible to use any other shortkeys and it's driving me insane. Why is it doing this and how do I change it?

Firefox usually works great, but starting last night it has been messing with my computer like crazy.

I have a wireless mouse, and a Wacom tablet/pen. Everything has worked fine, but starting last night I had to Restore Down the Firefox window with the Wacom because nothing happens when I try with my mouse. Once the window is has been Restored Down, my mouse freezes, and I have to go into Task Manager with the keyboard to get it to work again. I then have to use my Wacom as a mouse if I want to click something in the taskbar, the mouse for the start menu and any non-Firefox programs, and Firefox will just not work at all. I can't switch/open new tabs, I can't click the address bar, or the search bar, I can't go to a different site, or anything.

I have to open Task Manager to close out Firefox, then everything works fine. I reopen Firefox and it works fine except not being able to use the Minimize, Rrestore down, and Close buttons without using my Wacom, and then when I do, the cycle repeats.

I have tried unplugging things, putting in new batteries, nothing has worked and I don't know what could be causing this issue when Firefox has worked great for me all these years. I'm currently running a virus scan on my PC, but I don't see why it would ONLY be effecting Firefox.

Hello

PDFs open inside browser even after uninstalling Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Any idea how to stop this? I have not been able to identify any PDF plugin/addon and the options for PDF files in Firefox are all to 'Ask'.

Thanks!

Firefox now forces PDFs, even downloaded ones, to be opened in-browser. Frustrating is this setting has been introduced and right away replaced previous behaviour without any preceding notice, perfectly fine settings, now requiring to go to file explorer to open a PDF as if it was a file. How to disable this bloat?

Saving Web pages as PDF - add-ins do not work properly - can we please have a native option like Chrome |?

Have tried a ton of add-ins to be able to save a web page with searchable text as a searchable PDF, complete with the images displayed on the page, and the links shown. So far I have not found a single add-in that creates searchable text from all the (searchable) text that is displayed on the web page, and all the images, and all the links. Some give a pdf output that includes all the text but not all of it is selectable or searchable. Some do give searchable text but do not display the images. I have even tried the option of using several different print to pdf virtual drivers, and all of them behave similarly, with one issue or the other.

This is a basic requirement, and it needs to work. So far, the only thing that works is a chrome=based brpwser using the native save to pdf function. (The pdf print drivers do not work with the chrome browser either - they produce the same problems as using Firefox.) I am flagging this so some kind person on the forum can step up to the mark - for finding or creating something that works. (FF latest). The solution needs to work without any third party servers - just the good ol' browser !

Thanks

I used to have an extension. But after removing it I still see its setting in about:config. I don't want to clutter my Firefox's profile. Look at the screenshot.

1. Is it safe to remove all these setting manually? 2. How can I confirm that all the unnecessary data is removed? (including sqlite databases, etc...) 3. Isn't it a responsibility of an extension's developer to remove all the settings when a user removes it? 4. If I install hundreds of extensions and then I remove them, will they remain in my profile after deleting?

Hello

I downloaded the newest update and now pages are loading with only text or barely anything at all. Some sites work and others don't. I know this problem happened in previous versions and there was a fix for it. Do you know how to fix this problem? Thanks.

I have added a picture of how the pages are loading improperly with just text.

My system installed Firefox Browser Version 78.0.2 overnight. This morning my Firefox display is different. I am missing the header bar that contained a choice between opening a new window or a new tab, bookmarks, Firefox support ( question mark inside a circle), etc. Further all my bookmarks, logins & passwords, open tabs, history, add-on, and preferences ARE MISSING. Prior to this update I did not have a Firefox account so the SYNC procedure recommended in the open Firefox window DID NOT RECOVER ANYTHING. How do I get back my missing information and return my Firefox screen to its previous configuration?

When logging in to internet banking i have to enter a one time password and click on trust the computer . This should be a one time thing but I have to do it every time. This does not happen using Internet Explorer so why is Firefox not accepting the OTP ?

Hi there, I really struggle with Reddit when using Firefox Mozilla. Like, if I didn't enjoy reddit so much I'd not bother going on the site altogether because the user experience is so bad when I use Mozilla with it. What am I doing wrong? My speed is fine and every other site works fine with Mozilla Firefox....except Reddit - it's horrible.

Thanks for your help! Best, Christian

I have had a few problems ordering from sites (Adidas, Nike and another 1 or 2 I've forgotten) where I enter card details, get taken to the card verification page which then flips back to the basket page or the site's front page. I never get the order confirmation page or a confirmation email and the shops confirm no order has been made. I am really worried about this because I am putting in card info etc and it looks like it's going through but it doesn't. The pages are HTTPS. When I try on a different browser it works perfectly. It's quite frustrating because other sites are fine and I don't want to have to disable everything or use a different browser when I want to quickly buy something. The add ons I have installed are: Cookie Autodelete Facebook Container I Don't Care About Cookies UBlock Origin

I have standard tracking protection set in the options.

I understand the usual answer is to try disabling add ons one by one but to be honest I don't want to keep entering my card details to have to test it. Is there a better way to check what is causing the problem? Is this an issue with the sites or something to do with cookies/add ons?
