When I click on a .pdf link, Firefox downloads the file to my desktop. This is fine.

Sometimes, however, I would prefer that Firefox simply open the .pdf document in a new window. I know it used to work this way, but it stopped some time ago. How can I control this behavior?

I looked in Preferences > Applications and selected on "pdf". Two entries showed up under "Content Type":

 "Preview.app Document (application/po..." 

and

 "Portable Document Format (PDF)".  

Both entries have the same "Action": "Use PDF Browser Plugin 2.4.4 (in Firefox)"

Oops. I just figured it out. The PDF entry (only) has an extra pulldown option under Action: "Preview in Firefox". I tried it and it works!

I guess the old PDF Browser Plugin 2.4.4 must've quit working some time ago.

Can one safely block 4.2.2.1, 4.2.2.2, &c . . . 8.8.8.8

I use Little Snitch which shows Firefox allowing connections to 8 IP addresses that, for not seeing a reason, I blocked in LS. Nevertheless, LS lets about 10% of those connections through, so I police and disconnect. On the net, I found that those IPs belong to Level3 Communications which has a bad rep among some. I contacted the Little Snitch people who advised that I was wrong & the real owner is google (not really an answer to why their program lets through even after I've blocked). But here's the thing -- I use google ONLY for e-mail; I don't want to place my computer at their disposal for anything else. SO, should I continue my blocking campaign, or let the eight IPs through. My concern is Privacy and Security.


Thanks,

I want to use FireFox 16.0.2 instead of 46.0.1, which had been running on my Mac. How can I downgrade?

Dear Administrator,

I am a Safari user on Mac OS X 10.6.8. Some of the website I had to visit every month has updated their site. So, Safari 5.1.0 does not work for these sites. I downloaded FireFox 44.0.2 and find myself wishing to run FireFox 16.0.2 since this version of FireFox does not work with 1Password 3.0. This is a deal breaker for me. Is it possible for me reset the sync data? so that I can use FireFox 16.0.2.

Thank you very much for your time and effort in this matter.

Sincerely yours, Zigang Pan

I use IE-Favorites not only for internet url shortcuts, but also as a normal folder (which it is actually). I work with Firefox on a Windows PC with plugin "PlainOldFavorites" for the bookmarks.

On my Mac , I would like the equivalent function (IE folder for bookmarks in Firefox) but the same plugin does not work on Mac. Which plugin would have that functionality ? To have access to the same folder (or a synchronized copy of Favorites) ?

Thank you

Firefox doesn't open half the time. I get an invisible window, as indicated in the window pulldown menu, there are several no-name pages listed there (just a blank entry where a page name would be) and no window will open when I click the dock icon Mac OSX 10.6.8. I can't open Firefox from the dock until I completely quit and relaunch it.

I have Reset Firefox, tried with and without addons, COMPLETELY deleted all firefox files from my system (searched for all files hidden or otherwise for firefox) several times and reinstalled fresh, and the problem persists. I have repeatedly deleted sessionstore.js. I have repeatedly cleared cookies and cache. This has started within the last 3 or 4 updates to Firefox.

In a nutshell: Click dock icon when Firefox is running but no windows are open. Nothing. Check Window menu, I see a no-name page, or several no-name pages in the menu. Clicking them only puts a checkmark next to the blank item and no window shows. Only quitting and relaunching Firefox completely solves the issue.
