FF has stopped being able to open pdf files. Up-to-date FF. Re-installed anyway. Won't open pdf - loops through open-open-open - try save, then open same result

Opening a pdf file via "open in containing folder", I get the option to open or save. Choose open, I get the option to open or save... and so on ad infinitum.

If I save, then open, I get the above.

Worked two days ago, has worked for years.

I've re-installed FF, even though I was already up-to-date - same scenario as above.

Firefox has ceased being able to open a pdf file.

Can load website and other pages on site, but not rewards page. Works with Google Chrome, but not firefox. Assume it some setting and have talked w/ golfnow.com support at length...tried clearing history and undoing various cookies and stuff in settings, to no avail. Using Windows 10 on a Dell computer. Thoughts? Would rather get Firefox to work than have to open Chrome each time want to see that page. thx

1. The search bar is now suddenly MISSING in the middle of opening a new page/ Firefox window:

     IT WAS THERE BEFORE!


2. I don't remember there being a Private Browsing button on the left top of the page: I want it gone: prefer to use the lower task bar option in bottom left corner of entire Windows screen when RIGHT-clicking Firefox icon in Windows taskbar

I upgraded to the the Firefox version 66.0.2 64 bit on windows 10. Now the top sites line has only blank icons, and will not show recent sites visited. As a test, I added a site manually, expecting it would show up.

After that, I went into about:config and searched for "newtabpage" and found the line with the information for the sites I just added, and I saw them, displayed below. So it knew I had manually pinned some top sites, but they still do not show.

browser.newtabpage.pinned;[{"url":"https://www.alternet.org/","label":"Alternet"},null,null,{"url":"https://www.huffingtonpost.com","label":"Huffington"}]

Although the passwords are saved in "Saved Login", I need to refresh Firefox every day to enable that. The other settings like language has been saves without any problems.

So I tried those ways from the link, but none of them worked. "How to fix preferences that won't save" https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save The only way to fix this situation at the moment is to refresh it every day. That means I have to redo other settings every day.

Is there any way to fix it?

Expected behaviour of browser.download.panel.shown set to true in about:config: "When a download or multiple downloads are taking place, Firefox will not show the pop-out panel detailing the progress of each file transfer unless you proactively click on the Downloads button in the browser's toolbar. However, if you set the value of this preference to true that panel will automatically appear, overlaying a portion of your main browser window, as soon as a download begins."

Setting browser.download.panel.shown to true doesn't work as described. The download panel stays closed when the download begins. Setting browser.download.panel.shown to false automatically opens the download panel on the next download. But for all following downloads it will not open anymore. And oddly enough browser.download.panel.shown is automatically set to true after that.

After all himself I this do not can, contacts the there is no, and if and there is forms, then of course all on them spat and no one looks that there send.

I've done everything suggested and this is HUGELY annoying and hello = a bandwidth user?? (Yikes what about people who are limited on data?? HELLO Mozilla!)

STUPID stupid changes need to be fixed.

PLEASE give us the ability to STOP videos from autoplaying, NOT Just sound but ALSO the videos! It's RIDICULOUS.

Yes, I'm very frustrated. It makes pages take longer to load... it's annoying.... it adds to our cache... people DO have data limits.... and some of us just DO NOT want to see videos automatically start, whether sound is on or not.

Here's my settings:

media.autoplay.default;1 media.autoplay.enabled;false media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed;false media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground;true

And yes, in my settings: Block websites from automatically playing sound is CHECKED

But that does NOT stop the autoplay of the videos themselves.

This is an urgent and annoying issue. Google it - people are looking all over the place for this fix.

(and someone suggested in another post to change it to 2 - that doesn't work).

PLEASE either FIX this bug, or let us stop it in autoconfig, or - better - give people an open and up front HONEST OPTION to NOT autoplay videos, just like you have the ability to block from auto playing sound.

Videos MUST be in there too.

Sending laptop in for warranty, question about backing up Firefox

Hello,

I have an Acer laptop that I'm about to send in for a warranty repair for several different issues. I was told by Acer that it will likely be reset/reformatted upon arrival. Also, I was informed that the laptop may be replaced with a completely different unit at their discretion.

I would like to obviously keep all of my Firefox info, history, bookmarks, etc. and be able to restore them to the computer when it is returned to me, be it the same laptop or a new one.

Can someone please instruct me on the proper way to do this?

Is it as simple as copying my Profile folder to another drive, and then reinstalling it after I reinstall Firefox back on the laptop (be it my original one or a new one) when it has been returned to me?

Do I need to use the Profile Manager?

I bought a used Lenovo to use while my Acer is in for repairs. Today, I think that I successfully synced the two of them. (I have a Windows phone and thus no Firefox app for my phone, and could not enter a phone number to "complete" the sync as instructed) but it seems to have worked.

Will the bookmarks, history, tabs, etc from my Acer disappear from showing up on the Lenovo when the Acer laptop is reset by the factory?

(Or should I even delete Firefox from that Acer that I am sending in just out of privacy/security concerns?)

Thank to any and all who can assist me with doing this correctly. I apologize for any ignorance on my part, I've just never had to send in a unit for repair before.

Thanks, Chris

When I start to type an address in the URL bar, I get a drop down box directly below the url/address bar. The dropdown, which is as wide as my firefox window, contains a little magnifying glass icon and the text "Search with Yahoo" where Yahoo is my default, and only, search engine. I don't want this drop down box at all but I can't seem to disable it.
