duplicate of /questions/1376925 thread.

I am trying to address a STIG V-251569 I already downloaded the firefox template policy v3.9 and moved adml and admx files to the proper place here: C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions and here: en-US then after running gpupdate /force from command prompt i navigate here from gpupdate.msc: Local Computer Policies => Administrative Templates => Mozilla => Firefox => Preferences (Deprecated)

Question: Why is "browser.contentblocking.category" missing in the policy for Firefox enterprise?

Can someone explain to me why I sometimes need to verify a countless number of images before I can use the Firefox browser. I did not have to do that when using Google Chrome. I'm using NordVPN. I have the NordVPN addon installed.

Is that the reason?

I am willing to consider paying for Better Web with Scroll, but while Firefox says that it has partnered with "dozens" of organizations, it does not list most of them. I do not use any of the services it does list, so my subscription would not go to any organizations at all if this is a comprehensive list. Is there any list of all the organizations it has partnered with? Will this list be available on an ongoing basis to ensure transparency? Will organizations be able to sign up freely?

This is really just a paid version of Brave, and Better Web would need to demonstrate that it has distinct advantages over that browser to make it truly worthwhile. So far, they have not done a great job of demonstrating that they have those advantages. I am ready to be convinced, because I trust and respect Mozilla, but have not been yet.

Hello. I'm using a brand-new installation of Firefox 78.0.1 on a freshly installed copy of Windows 10 Pro. The only way I can get Firefox to display any notifications is by having alerts.useSystemBackend set to true. While this is set to false, notifications will not work. If I use this site to test them, it just says, 'queued for display', followed immediately by 'closed'. I've also tried creating a new profile and testing it again with no success. All sites were granted notification permissions in each case.

Thanks for any help.

Firefox version: 78.0.1

Firefox recently changed the behaviour when clicking on downloaded PDFs in the Firefox Downloads panel. While all other downloaded files are opened with the system default program when clicking on them, PDFs are opened with the built-in Firefox viewer.

This is counter intuitive. If Firefox is the system default PDF viewer, this separate treatment of PDFs is not necessary (the system default redirects back to Firefox). If Firefox is not the system default PDF viewer, users need to take extra steps to open a PDF in the system viewer (open the folder, click on the file; also documented [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/view-pdf-files-firefox-or-choose-ano...]). Therefore, this change creates no benefit for those who use Firefox as the system default PDF viewer, while reducing usability for those who use a different system PDF viewer (e.g., Acrobat).

Example use case:

  • Browse to a PDF URL: use the Firefox built-in viewer, because it is fast and convenient. A more sophisticated viewer is not necessary because the document is only viewed, not edited.
  • Download a PDF: use the system default viewer (e.g., Acrobat), for example for annotation.

It seems clear that this change has reduced usability for no functional improvement, while the common combined use case of Firefox for PDF URLs and professional readers (e.g., Acrobat) for downloaded PDFs has become more difficult.

jscher2000,

"Do you mean search engines appear even before you start typing anything to search?"

Yes, as soon as i bring the cursor to the Search box. the drop down box appears.

I opened my Home page and all of the boxes under Firefox Home Content I had unclicked during set up.

My home page is set to blank page and New Tabs the same.

I turned them back on to do as you described but the three dots never appeared in the corner and everything remained the same so i turned them off again.

Thanks for trying to help.
