When a sender (Chase.Com) sends me a PDF named "List" something (mysterious) decides to delete the extension!

I can fix it by copying the file elsewhere & then renaming it by adding the missing ".PDF" - so I DO have a work-around.

However, what's the underlying cause?

The problem started occurring about 2 months ago.

Hi Everyone, I took out a subscription with the British Film Institute (https://player.bfi.org.uk/subscription)

After registering without difficulty, I found I could only play the "Free" films and not those available on subscription.

BFI Support seem to think it is something to do with a conflict of privacy/security settings and I wondered if anyone had come across anything similar -- or had any good ideas for resolving it?

I am running F/F Quantum 65.0.2 as my main browser, with DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials, AdBlock and AdBlock Plus.

I have "whitelisted" the BFI site in DuckDuckGo but it has made no difference.

Thanks,

Ian

The Error message "Firefox has stopped working" pops up 5 times as soon as a youtube starts in the background. After i clicked on "ok" the error message disappeares and the video starts playing. sometimes it even happens when the video starts in the foreground. But then only 1 time. I reinstalled firefox. Deleted all Mozilla folders, no add-ons, i deactived the flash protected mode, i updated my Graficcard driver. No Crashreport available.

It takes 2, 3, sometimes 4 times to click in an input text box to type. Restarted to safe mode didn't work. I tried in normal mode with all extensions and add-ons disabled or off. Changed theme to normal. Disabled hardware acceleration. Uninstalled/reinstalled FF. None were successful. It works in Chrome and IE. I look at my keyboard to type cos I'm retarded. So when I click once and the page animates like it wants to select but it doesn't, I usually have typed an invisible paragraph before I realize I have been duped. It is not a huge thing, just annoying.

I am wondering if anyone else is having this problem in Synology Disk Manager.

If I open Package Center > Installed and then click on any app, the Icon image that is normally displayed on the top left of the window is missing.

This only affects FireFox. Chrome, Edge and Internet Explorer have no issue displaying that icon image.

I tried creating a completely fresh profile by starting with this firefox.exe -p, but I still have the same issue with a fresh profile, FireFox simply will not display those icon images.

I have attached an image below. The red box shows where the icon image should appear.

If anyone has any ideas on what the problem may be, I would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks.

Firefox always hangs for a few seconds after moving a tab or downloading something.

This only happens once per session and it's an either/or situation. Meaning, if I move a tab first, it will hang, but my 1st download will be fine. If I download something before moving a tab it will hang but then moving tabs will be fine.

After doing either one once, all subsequent downloads or tab moves are fine.

I would suspect it has something to do with the drawing of the interface because in both cases something new is happening at the top of the browser. This is just my uneducated guess based on similarities between the two issues.

Recently I began having trouble with goclio.com logging out every time I close firefox. I did the suggested:

Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address bar.

The button next to History, select Use Custom Settings.

Turn off Always Use Private Browsing Mode Turn on Remember My Browsing And Download History At the bottom of the page, turn on Clear History When Firefox Closes. At the far right, press the Settings button. Turn on ONLY Cache and Form And Search History leaving the others off.

with no luck. This doesn't happen in Chrome. I've cleared the cache, etc. but still same issue.

Frequently Firefox does not shut down when I shut it down. I often find the browser open when I start my PC. Other times I shut it down, and then need to open it again and find it is still open (even though I just closed it). Also, when I searched for help, the 300+ articles resulting had nothing remotely related to my search terms.

Firefox completely freezes up whenever I visit a page that uses geolocation services and I Allow Location Access. An example URL is:

https://www.guitarcenter.com/Used/Fender/Vintage-Reissue-1959-Bassman-LTD-4x10-Tube-Guitar-Combo-Amp.gc

Another example is FedEx.com.

I've tried troubleshooting this by running Firefox in Safe Mode but that does not help. The only way I can get those pages to work again without freezing up Firefox is to clear out or disallow location permissions.

I noticed that version 65.0.2 supposedly fixed a bug related to geolocation services affecting Windows users. Well, for me at least, this bug fix has introduced a bug that I didn't have before.

How can I get this looked into and fixed?
