This is a pretty weird problem. When I go to download a PDF from our company's website, Firefox is asking if I want to open it or download it, and here is what happens with both options:

  • Open -- It identifies the document as HTML and presents the raw PDF data (it becomes file.pdf.html)
  • Download -- It downloads the file correctly as a pdf, and calls it file.pdf. The file can then be opened and correctly rendered as a PDF.

I'm assuming it is an issue with the response header-- either it is malformed or non-standard, or maybe it is just Firefox being wonky. IE, Edge, and Chrome have no problem with it.

The mime type is application/pdf, and we are using a Content-disposition: attachment; filename="file.pdf".

Hopefully this is an easy issue to fix, but this is out of my normal realm of programming. The Firefox users where I work know to download the offending files instead of immediately opening them, it would just be nice to actually fix the issue.

Oh, in case it helps, part of the HTTP response header that we are sending is telling the browser to treat the file like an attachment, so the other browsers just save it.

Thanks for any insight and help!

Hi,

So the default paper size for the printer keeps on defaulting to letter. When we require A4.

In previous versions this could be fixed by changing paper_data to 9.

However on the latest version of Firefox this option is no longer there. Instead it is replaced with print_paper_id. I have tried different values and this will not work.

Any ideas on how we can get this to default to A4 as the paper size?

Thanks.

Hi! I recently reset Firefox on my iMac, which restored it to default settings. But now, although I'm signed in to Firefox on my Macbook laptop and my Android phone, logins and passwords aren't syncing to the iMac. They're all on the same network, inches apart, and the two computers are otherwise synced (both running Catalina 10.15.7). I've tried the "Sync Now" button in Firefox, but it's not helping. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I BELIEVE, but am not certain, the above described subject and topic are instrumental to the issue I am having. I like to stream a Canadian sports site called Sporstnet Now. Up until a few weeks / months ago every time I clicked to open that site the streaming started automatically. Now that is not happening on a regular basis. Typically when I click on the website it now does not start automatically. To resolve this I can "sign out" and then sign in using my login credentials. This is obviously a time waster. Once I am signed in again, I might be able to stop the streaming and log back in automatically for the next few hours, but certainly by the next morning the streaming does not start automatically and I need to go through the login process described above. There must be a setting somewhere to allow the automatic streaming to start even if I have not visited that website in the last 2 - 3 days. Any help? suggestions? thoughts? Thank you.

The identity of this web site or the integrity of this connection cannot be verified

Popups appears many times and can be eliminated by clicking X (close) on the message. Usually about 10-20 of these appear behind the browser page. I do not see the message until I close the browser. I have tried every suggestion from many sources and can not rid the problem.

One suggestion was to change the wording on Firefox Certificate Manager deleting BUILTIN OBJECT TOKEN. I can not find access to try this method.

I have tried to delete certificates that look suspicious and they reload when you open the Fire Fox Browser.

All of the certificate popups are from sites I do not visit.

Hi, i recently have a issue, where most of the addons don't show the content of their defined popup.

I do the following sequence.

- open firefox - add a addon - add it to the toolbar - click on the icon to access its popup

The popup is then opened and the outline of it's size is most likely correctly calculated, but the content is missing.

The reference Addons are passff, with no Content SakaKey, with an partial rendering HTTPSEverywhere, with the full content and the expected behaviour.

I tried to reset the browser via the about:support page, no change. I restarted in safe mode. That was kind of pointless, because without addons, there are no icons to click at^^.

I created a fresh profile, also no change. So i downloaded the latest nightly, started with a fresh profile, and installed one addon, still not working.

I fickled with the browser-style property in the manifest.json of passff, and set it to true, but again it still shows no content.

What is most likely missing on the shared data, i run Ubuntu 20.04 with i3 as a window manager.

Has anyone a idea what i am missing?

Hello,

I can't order the add-on icons on the toolbar.

1) I have more add-ons than I can fit on the toolbar, and 2) the overflow menu does not display all the icons for all the add-ons that I have installed.

So, in the toolbar customization menu, I can not place the icons where I want them on the toolbar because I can't drag them there when they are not shown. See the picture I took of the screen. The first picture shows the customization menu. The overflow menu is visible, but does not show all the icons that should be there (see the second picture). The second picture from the normal screen (not the toolbar customization screen) and shows the all the icons of all the add-ons I have installed that appear when I click on "More tools" in the top right hand part of the screen. Part of the icons is on the toolbar, part is in the overflow menu.

So, the problem is that I can't re-order the icons by dragging them from the overflow menu to the place on the toolbar where I would like them to be (e.g. to group related add-ons).

Is this an error made by me or an error in the program.

If possible, I would like to have all my icons visible, not partially hidden away in the overflow menu. Is it possible to have two or more rows of icons visible?

Please, help. Thank you.

I use MyYahoo as a start page and Firefox as my default browser. Have done this for years. Today, my bookmarks at this page started loading differently in the afternoon with errors in the names and taking up a lot more screen real estate. Also, the punctuation for names of bookmarks is now defiled. The page doesn't allow me to edit them either. I thought it was a Yahoo problem, but apparently not, since everything loads normally using Chrome.

I'm trying to log in from a different machine than my usual one. Firefox says I am using the incorrect password. I have quadruple checked the spelling of my user name (email address) and my primary password. I am definitely entering them correctly on the new machine yet firefox insists it is wrong. I checked the password in the account settings of my usual machine, under "accounts.firefox" on Firefox's Lockwise (aka logins & passwords) page and indeed I am using the correct email & password. I also searched my email to make sure that I did not change my password and forgot that I had done so. So how can this be?
