Hello

There are a number of PDF documents on my computer that unfortunately won't open in Firefox. Firefox is my default for opening PDF documents but I also tried Microsoft edge and they didn't open on that either. Some of them are from 2 1/2 years ago, some say 4-6 years ago. These files used to open on my computer without problems but alas not anymore! :( When I try to open them in Firefox I get a completely blank document with no error message. When I try instead to open them with microsoft edge I get the following error "We can't open this file. Something went wrong"

Thanks!

I love Firefox (FF), I use it on my home PC, work laptop, and my smartphone. I use a FF account for synchronization which is quite handy. But why, WHY every time I log into my account I'm getting an email: "Last reminder to sync devices! bla bla bla" Can not FF learn that my account uses sync? I don't have more devices for extra synchronization :) Is that really hard?

I was able to change the font in Ctrl J by changing my system font (windows 10, Firefox font used to automatically follow it). However after the latest Firefox update, that no longer works for Firefox (my system font is still OK). Please help me change the Libabry font again! The default font (probably SegoeUI) is very hard to read on my computer, it's blurry and comes in light gray.

Note: I'm not talking about the website font (it's fine and can be changed in Firefox settings). The library font size is fine too, only the font itself is too hard to read.

Note2: I tried changing my system font to other random fonts (using the registry), restarting my computer in between etc. That still works, but Firefox won't follow.

I will give this one more try and then I will delete this program.

I want to save some specific login information. I get it to work right and then a week or so later it erases all of the information.

Reset it so often is worse than it not saving.

Why does it delete the information when I don't want it to.

When I launch Firefox, if I press anything or wait for a bit, the program stops responding and I have to force close it. Firefox was working just fine until recently. I have not updated Windows or made changes to Firefox prior to these issues occurring either.

I have tried following this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-keeps-crashing-startup#w_try-a-clean-install_2

I am not able to start in Troubleshoot mode as I cannot interact with Firefox in any way.

I also have trouble with doing a clean install. When I run the uninstaller, it eventually gets stuck and I have to force close the uninstaller. After closing the uninstaller, I deleted the Mozilla folder under C:\Program Files and the Firefox folder under the %appdata% directory.

I then tried both the stub installer for Firefox and the full installer located here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-CA/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

Both installers get stuck. I have attached an image of where the full installer gets stuck. After force closing the installers, I am still able to open Firefox, but it has the same issue of not responding.

I have also tried creating a new profile with the profile manager, but the issue persists.

If anyone has any ideas or knows of a solution, please let me know.

Thanks.

I have encountered one web site that has several pages that display as graphics instead of text. I have visited this site before several months ago and the display was accurate then. The first image is how it looks now. The second image is how it looked several months ago. I am running Ubuntu 20.04.2 and Firefox 89.0.2. It's very strange that this is the only page that displays this way. I checked the page in Chromium and it displays correctly in that browser. Is this Firefox or quirky html?

Hallo, ich hoffe, es kann mir auch auf deutsch geantwortet werden. Ich habe zwei Probleme: Ich wollte Lesezeichen und angelegte Ordner löschen. Diese sind dann auch für sehr kurze Zeit verschwunden, tauchen aber dann wieder wie aus dem nichts auf. > Wie kann ich Lesezeichen und Ordner dauerhaft löschen? Ein weiteres Problem ist die Sortierung der Lesezeichen und Ordner. Nach jedem Öffenen von Firefox ist alles unsortiert geordnet. > Wie kann ich das einstellen? Alle beiden Probleme tauchen erst seit kurzer Zeit auf. Vorher lief das reibungslos. Vielen Dank, Dirk Baltes

When I go to websites i.e. PayPal, Facebook, eBay, amazon, etc I get emails saying that I used an unknown browser that I have not used before. This started with your new update 90.0.2 64 bit. I am not technically savvy what do I do to stop these emails and let them know it is fire fox mozilla browser. Fire fox is my main browser and has been for years but, unless there is some way to let websites know this is a new update to fire fox Mozilla I will be forced to remove this browser from my computer. Please advise me what I can do. Thank you. Katisam3@cox.net

I'm using Firefox 90 on Linux (Fedora 33) and MATE Desktop. Before I upgraded to Firefox 90, I set widget.non-native-theme.enabled to false to revert the scrollbar appearance to the system theme, as per this question: Scrollbar appearance changed after Firefox upgrade. It worked on Firefox 89, but as soon as I upgraded to Firefox 90, the scrollbars went back to the non-native appearance.

After the upgrade, the widget.non-native-theme.enabled is still set to false, but apparently ignored. However, I noticed that the other widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.* settings that allow scrollbar appearance customization inside Firefox are ignored as well. If I set widget.non-native-theme.enabled back to true, then the other scrollbar settings work as expected. This tells me that widget.non-native-theme.enabled does work, but the system scrollbar theme is not picked up as expected. This looks like a bug to me.

I really dislike the look of the tabs in the newest version. A floating bubble, not connected to the page, for the active tab? And the inactive tabs are connected, but there is no separation between the tabs? Aside from uninstalling the latest version and installing a previous version, is there a way to restore the look of the previous version? Maybe an add-on? If I have to reinstall an old version I'll probably just switch over to a different browser.
