I have it set in setting to open in Firefox. it is continuing to automatically download all PDFs and it is eating into my data! please help. I have to get this to stop or I will no longer be able to click on any PDFs with Firefox anymore. I have also tried setting it to always ask, but if I do that and then tell it to open, then it STILL DOWNLOADS THE FILE! I cannot understand why anyone would ever want files they just wanted to read to just randomly download. I am a genealogy researcher and used to click on dozens of PDFs a day to read, now I can't with Firefox or I won't have internet for half the month after I use up my data. There has to be someway to stop this, I don't like other browsers, but right now, if it involves a PDF I have to use a different browser. (also quite annoying to have to delete multiple files that I never wanted to download - I was using Firefox to pay a bill and downloaded it SIX times) Please help!

I tested this on YouTube and another website's video player and was able to consistently replicate the issue.

Hello, I need help, it is not possible to open Firefox. After opening, the window closes itself again, a new profile was created, but the problem is still there. I am very unhappy about this. I didn't load a new extension, didn't use new antivirus software. Firefox has already been uninstalled and reinstalled. The problem is not solved. I've also cleaned Firefox a few times, but the problem still persists. There are no crash reports as Firefox just closes and doesn't crash. I can start safe mode. I am sending the Troubleshooting information.

Thanks for your help, Firefox is the best browser! Greetings Silke

I have autofill turned off, but whenever I go to a a particular page that has a contact form for a web-based software I use for my business, FF automatically puts my first and last names in the respective fields, in the place of existing names for my particular contacts.

How does FF have my name in the first place, since I have never knowingly provided it, how do I remove it from FF, and how do I stop this autofill from happening, since I have it turned off yet it's still working?

repost from there, here its probably more appropriate: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1391582 In the meantime I figured out that sent tabs apparently only remain on the server for 60 days and that there is probably no log, even offline. But no definitive answer. And my feature request still remains for a history of sent tabs.

Dear Mozilla Team,

during the recent weeks I was away from my main PC and primarily used my iphone to browse the web. Every now and then I sent a link to the PC using Safari's share and the integrated send to function of Firefox for iOS. This usually worked really well, even when my PC was powered off. When I got back home and started my PC, sync would take forever, but was then interupted and all further tries to sync (hoping to get those tabs eventually) failed.

My question is if there is a log file of all those links that are sent to different devices? I believe there has to be one given that Mozilla's servers are being used and tabs (usually) arrive on powered-off devices following a request to the server.

If there is, please tell me how to access it/send it to me. If there is not, please take this as a feature request (a sent links history being gathered locally as part of the wider Firefox profile maybe and as a viewable list of all shared tabs for all devices so that tabs can still be sent to single devices but also accessed from others, similar to how tabs can be accessed from all synced devices).

I appreciate the quick reply from your support staff yesterday. I followed instructions and was able to turn off the GIFs but FOR ONLY ONE TIME. As soon as I exited Firefox, or even the current page and returned to it they were back on. How do I keep them off permanently?

Hello,

i have a problem with Rightmove.co.uk webpages. On the webpage where you can see house plans, I zoom into the plan, and the plan just cannot be moved anymore and zoomed as well. I entered Firefox in troubleshooting mode without any extensions enabled and the same issue happened still. I tested the Brave and Chrome, no problems there. I tested Firefox latest version and also the ESR version, both had the same issue. One of the webpage links is below that just freezes, but the same issue happens with all sites when you want to see house plans. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/125021075#/floorplan?activePlan=1&channel=RES_BUY Please help me.

This morning after no noticeable change to my computer, the bookmarks are missing from Firefox. I thought it might be after last update, but that was a week ago (I think) and I didn't have this issue until after the weekend (computer on but not used, system did not restart). The bookmark backups are listed but i get the following error when trying to load them:

"Unable to process the backup file."

I have found the file location, but even trying to do it manually gives the same error.

Is this a bug from the new update?

Dear All:

Suddenly FF starts but shows only a new tab without any content. I can fill in a URL but no reaction. Settings doesn't open. Close tab through X Restart FF. no new tab but message: FF is already running but is not responding. The old FF process must be closed to open in a new window. Click to close. a new empty tab pops up without starting FF manually. Close through X Restart brings the same message as above - no window. Have to end FF in Task Manager.

Uninstalled and reinstalled three times - no change.

I'm using Windows 10 and Avast One, Firewall checked - is open for FF.

I appreciate your comments and help. Best wishes Henning

I think the latest update, Firefox 105.01, screwed up my bookmarks. The Star on the address bar is blue for any site. Clicking on it does nothing. Will not edit, three bar menu will not edit, Control D will not edit.

There is now a bar underneath the address bar for a toolbar which was not there previously. I have never used or needed the bookmarks toolbar.

The Release notes for 105.01 (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/105.0.1/releasenotes/?utm_source=firefox-browser&utm_medium=firefox-desktop&utm_campaign=about-dialog) appears as a bookmark in an unrelated folder. It will not delete.

I did look at the release notes right after the update. I closed that tab and did not bookmark it.

Cannot add new bookmarks.

I just discovered on the three bar menu under the Bookmarks menu that 105 shows as the last recent bookmark. Prior recent bookmarks will open up the "edit this bookmark." Only the save button is highlighted & clicking on that does nothing & the menu disappears.

Please fix. Thank you
