I have always had PDFs set to "Always ask" is described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file This hasn't changed. The dialog which asks what to do with the file used to have "Save File" selected by default. This was convenient, because this is usually what I want. However, the default selection has recently changed to "Open with Firefox", which I hardly ever want. This requires me to perform an extra step when accessing PDFs from the Web, which I do quite often. I am not aware of having done anything which would affect this, nor have I found a corresponding option to change it back. How can I restore the previous behaviour?

What happened to the Arial Black font? It suddenly disappeared from the list of fonts that appear in Tools >> Options >> Language and Appearance.

Due to vision problems, I require a bold font. Mozilla has now made it almost impossible for me to use Firefox. Does anyone know of a workaround to this problem?

also, a FYI: Removal of this font violates the Americans With Disabilities law.

With Firefox 83, the following change occurred:

  • Selecting a search engine at the bottom of the search panel [in the address bar] now enters search mode for that engine, allowing you to see suggestions (if available) for your search terms. The old behavior (immediately performing a search) is available with a shift-click.

I don't find this very useful since I have disabled search suggestions and would much rather have the old behavior of immediately performing a search when clicking the icon of my designed engine or site. My question is how do I disable the new change, and how do I re-enable the immediate search as default behavior so as to not have to shift-click for this?

Thank you.

Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) in Ubuntu 18.04

I often load pages with many tabs. These tabs are NOT refreshed when loading, so data may be days old. It's easy to think data is fresh, since Firefox just started, but WRONG !

This wastes lots of time, both in errors and manually restarting each of many tabs.

I need to find how to set Firefox to NOT use old data when it starts. I don't need to refresh every few minutes or hours,, JUST when starting.

HOW do I accomplish this ?!?

Thanks!

I would very much like to adjust the text zoom of my (updated current firefox) browser (to 170%) and the normal zoom to something around 130-150%. That would allow me to read from distance and use the whole screen. However, firefox only allows "text-only" zoom OR "whole site" zoom (in "about:preferences"). Is there an addon or an "about:config" setting where I could globally adjust text zoom and website zoom to distinct values at once (without setting "website zoom" to 100% for example, when adjusting "text-only")

I would greatly appreciate a solution! Thanks, best regards Gregor

I should not have to ask this, but somehow this essential feature has been removed *again*. How in the world do we view the URLs of links in Windows 10 now? The status bar has been totally disappeared, and although there are a number of add-ons, so many of them are about other kinds of status, or only show the URL in limited circumstances, that I'm having trouble figuring out which ones offer the basic view-URL-on-hover. Does anyone have recommendations?

Even better, who can explain why it's a good idea to make it hard for users to see this absolutely vital information? If security is important then it's important to make it easy for users to see where links go before clicking on them. Full stop. And even if the web were somehow magically totally safe, people don't want to waste their time and bandwidth playing guessing games. We want to know what something is before we bother to open it up. Why is that so very hard to understand?????

Every time a link is clicked or the page is refreshed, the Reload/Stop button plays an animation of the reload arrow morphing into an X and then back into a reload arrow.

This is very distracting. How can the user disable this animation?

Help guides from 2017 say to change the following about:config prefs: browser.stopReloadAnimation.enabled toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled But these do not exist anymore.

I accidentally set a frequent website I use to always open in the wrong container. I do get the prompt about 'would you like to open this container in [wrong container]' and I click the option not to do so while also having checked the box that says to remember this decision, but the check box seems to do nothing. I've checked the box countless times to no effect. I seem to have permanently created this state which is highly frustrating. I don't want this site opened in any container. I have a lot of sites I've configured in what I'm terming here "wrong container" (though it's the correct for those other sites), so I don't want to have to delete the entire container to fix this problem.

I've had other problems with Multi-Account Containers (such as, tabs I've closed coming back like zombies after restarting Firefox; or Firefox seeming to forget that certain tabs were in containers and the act of clicking their tab to place them in the correct container causes them first to reload in the default of no container), but for now my biggest issue is not being able to remove a website from the "always open in wrong container" list. Where is the list of websites per container stored? Is this somewhere in the about:config or in a raw, human-readable file on my filesystem somewhere? How can I fix my problem without having to delete the container entirely?

I'm running FF 82.0.2 (64-bit) with Multi-Account Containers version 7.2.0 on Manjaro Linux version 20.2
