I am trying to make Mozilla Firefox open all pdfs from Firefox in Adobe without prompting the users about whether they want to save or open. I have Adobe Reader set as the default app for pdf files, and I've disabled pdfjs in Group Policy both for the user and the computer side. I just can't seem to stop that prompt from popping up. Any ideas? I don't want to have to set the application handler manually for 1500+ computers. Thanks!

This page https://www.nacocanada.com/cpages/common-docs is broken and has a newsletter sign up overlay that can't be closed. So i hide the element with uBlock origin but the underlying page still doesn't scroll. If i make the window taller more content appears, so it is there.

How do I force enable the scroll bar for all websites or at least this one?

Hi, I can't play any videos with Firefox browser (facebook, youtube, email attachments..). I can play all these videos using other browsers (microsoft edge, chrome..) on the same laptop (Windows 10). I have tried several 'solutions' on the Firefox help forum such as deleting cookies, history etc but running out of patience and thinking of switching default browser. Any easy solutions would be appreciated.

My old computer became incredibly slow and almost unusable. I managed to find my firefox profile folder using the %APPDATA% search and copy it to an external hard drive and connect it to my new computer. I wanted to keep my bookmarks, extensions, and logins, so I followed this:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile#w_copying-files-between-profile-folders

But nothing changed on Firefox on the new computer. Going back to my old PC will be incredibly tedious, so I am hoping having moved my old profile folder to my new PC I have done everything I need to. Any help would be appreciated.

PS I am at work and don't have immediate access to my computer.

TB has worked well for the last 10 years, but sometime in Nov or Dec we can't send emails through Comcast. They say it is a Thunderbird problem because the ports and security are configured right according to them. Lately it will work okay in the morning but not in the afternoon or evening. Today it won't send at all. I get a message as follows:

"An error occurred while sending mail: The mail server sent an incorrect greeting:  resomta-ch2-13v.sys.comcast.net resomta-ch2-13v.sys.comcast.net Excessive failed authentication, ESMTP server temporarily not available."

Why does it work sometimes and then not at all? I have had to revert to a gmail address or send comcast emails using the web. Wading through the mechanical twit that answers the phone at Comcast and then explaining repeatedly on every call to the agent is getting old, and I don't have the 2 to 3 hours it takes to converse with them. If the call gets escalated, it results in a determination that they will have to call me back, and they never do. Then, when I call again they say the case has been closed. Anybody experience this nonsense? What can be done to get the outgoing mail to work again?

Yesterday I updated Big Sur (11.2.2). When I started up Firefox I got a message indicating that I had to update my version of Firefox. I clicked on the link and it sent me to Apple and Apple said it was only supporting IOS. I never could find a link to get the latest version for MACOSX as it seemed that the three places I tried were for IOS. What/where is the URL for MACOSX ? According to FIREFOX I am up to date (86.0) 64 bit

Please Help! Why am I all of a sudden getting this error message? I have been using Firefox for years and Gmail.

Do you really want to use HTML Gmail?

You're about to use a version of Gmail designed for slower connections and legacy browsers. To get all of Gmail's features, including inbox categories, images and quick actions, please use the latest version of Gmail (recommended).

Take me to latest Gmail

So I love Firefox but recently have a serious issue. my homepage is google.com. it goes there but when i type in my search it redirects to yahoo. I looked up the problem on my phone and it gave me instructions to go into the firefox add-ons and delete the add-ons. However when i click add on it doesn't come up. I cannot get into my add ons. To sum it up, my google is redirected to yahoo even though my default search engine is google, and i cannot get into my add-on tab to delete a possible malicious add-on.

Everything was fine till today. Smarkets website looks like crap and only this one. What's interesting, it looks all right when I untick allow pages to use their own fonts button. That's strange. Unfortunately, the rest of website do not look good. I cannot use Smarkets anymore as this is just unreadable. Please compare the same website open i FF and Chrome.

Yesterday Firefox, which I've used for years, suggested that I refresh. So I did. It created an "Old Firefox Data" folder. The newly refreshed Firefox had none of my bookmarks, etc., so I tried to add them by calling up the site and pressing Control+D, clicking on the star, etc. Nothing worked. Then I tried to add "Top Sites" to the opening page of the browser, putting in the name and URL. That didn't work either. Then I went to look at the suggestions on the Mozilla site as to what to do, either to allow the current version of Firefox to accept Top Sites & Bookmarks, or to reinsert the Old Firefox Data. I found the relevant pages but could make no sense of them. The recommendations are infinitely beyond my computer capacities, but even the simplest suggestions, like 'open the Old Firefox Data folder, highlight the items contained therein, right click, and press Copy' were unhelpful, since when I right-clicked, the menu that came up didn't include "Copy." Should I uninstall Firefox and download anew? I'm using Windows 7 and Firefox of approximately the same vintage. (Alas) I am also of a generation that remembers when electric typewriters were the big new thing, so I'm going to need very very simple instructions. . . . Many thanks, DKS

Hello. I hope someone can help me. For the last 3 or 4 weeks the Walmart grocery site is not working right. For anyone familiar you know that there is a little heart you click on for your favorites, and on the right side of the page is your items currently in your shopping cart. Ok, neither of those is working in Firefox right now. It is working fine in Opera but not Firefox which is my preferred browser. (I was using Opera for a while and one of their updates caused the same issue, they saw it about a week later and it works there now.) I have attempted several restarts with addons disabled. As far as I can remember the only thing that I have changed in about:config was "browser.urlbar.update1" (that has been changed for a long time) ...I went in and changed it back but that made no difference. Does anyone have any ideas? I really dislike having to open a separate browser for 1 site. I have attached a picture showing what I am referring to. Thank you in advance Kathy
