The latest update placed Close Tabs to the Right and Close Other Tabs in a submenu. To me this is a confusing change as I now need more clicks to achieve the same thing.

Also I feel that the context menus are too crowded in Firefox. I suggest a padding between the items.

Firefox version: 78.0.1

Firefox recently changed the behaviour when clicking on downloaded PDFs in the Firefox Downloads panel. While all other downloaded files are opened with the system default program when clicking on them, PDFs are opened with the built-in Firefox viewer.

This is counter intuitive. If Firefox is the system default PDF viewer, this separate treatment of PDFs is not necessary (the system default redirects back to Firefox). If Firefox is not the system default PDF viewer, users need to take extra steps to open a PDF in the system viewer (open the folder, click on the file; also documented [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/view-pdf-files-firefox-or-choose-ano...]). Therefore, this change creates no benefit for those who use Firefox as the system default PDF viewer, while reducing usability for those who use a different system PDF viewer (e.g., Acrobat).

Example use case:

  • Browse to a PDF URL: use the Firefox built-in viewer, because it is fast and convenient. A more sophisticated viewer is not necessary because the document is only viewed, not edited.
  • Download a PDF: use the system default viewer (e.g., Acrobat), for example for annotation.

It seems clear that this change has reduced usability for no functional improvement, while the common combined use case of Firefox for PDF URLs and professional readers (e.g., Acrobat) for downloaded PDFs has become more difficult.

Any advice?

I have a Dell Lattitude E5570 running Windows 64 Professional. I use Firefox to connect to the web. Recently I had fibre broadband fitted to the house by BT and with it a BT Smart Hub 2.

On initial setup everything was fine, my QNAP NAS was picked up and I could access it and I could access the BT Hub. However, after only a couple of days I can no longer access the BT Hub using the IP address or my NAS. Firefox simply says 'Unable to connect to server' whenever I put in the IP address. For the NAS I get a message saying 'cannot connect to device, check that the device and your computer are on the same subnet'.

My iPhone however, which is also connected to the internet via my BT hub can access both my NAS and BT Smart Hub 2 .

Strange thing is Firefox would never connect to my Asus router before either. I've even tried connecting my computer directly to both the BT router and the NAS with an ethernet cable but still no joy.

I have checked my windows firewall and Firefox is on there as an allowed app. I have no trouble connecting to any other website via Firefox just my BT router and my NAS. I have removed Firefox and re-installed it as advised but still no joy.

When accessing the NAS via my iPhone on the BT app it says the NAS is connected to my wi-fi as are my Hive, Sonos, Amazon Firestick and laptop.

I have no idea what the 'subnet' message means not knowing what that is or where to look to see if this is the issue. Oh, and I have tried accessing the BT Hub and the NAS using Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer but to no avail.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Paul.

I have a dual screen windows 10 system. I use both Firefox and Chrome. Chrome is set as my default browser because I use many Google apps. However, when I search the internet and open non-google programs I use Firefox. I would like to have Firefox always open on a designated screen. Is there a way I can set Firefox to always default to a designated screen.

I look forward to your answer.

This is going to be difficult to explain, so I'll do my best;

Recently, Firefox has been exhibiting a problem where, upon maximizing a window, the window extends up by a few pixels more than any other maximized window. Now, normally this wouldn't be a problem as the top of the screen would cut off any extra padding. However, using a program that reserves the screen edge shows that a maximized Firefox window indeed extends past the regular window border by exactly 8 pixels.

What's more, when using Windows Snap on two separate Firefox windows, one of the windows respects the screen edge while the other does not! This leads to the window control buttons at the top right of both windows to be in different vertical positions, which is difficult to use.

No other programs I have exhibit this behavior, which is why I'm turning to Mozilla support. I don't know if the issue has to do with the browser or how Windows 10 renders the desktop, but it throws off the design of the desktop as I intend to display it.

In the provided example picture, the left window demonstrates predicted behavior where the upper border of the window is at the position I intend (40 pixels from the true screen edge), while the right window can be seen extending past the left one by exactly 8 pixels. I have tried this with extensions disabled, in safe mode, and every other way I can think of and the problem persists. No other programs exhibit this issue. This is utterly baffling to me and I hope someone might understand and be able to suggest any solutions.

Thank you!

Hello. I'm using a brand-new installation of Firefox 78.0.1 on a freshly installed copy of Windows 10 Pro. The only way I can get Firefox to display any notifications is by having alerts.useSystemBackend set to true. While this is set to false, notifications will not work. If I use this site to test them, it just says, 'queued for display', followed immediately by 'closed'. I've also tried creating a new profile and testing it again with no success. All sites were granted notification permissions in each case.

Thanks for any help.
