Not a serious bug, but firefox warns about cancelling downloads when trying to switch profiles without actually exiting the browser. Please take a look at the attached image.

If I somehow click on "Cancel 1 Download", it does nothing, just launches the profile I am launching. So the warning actually means nothing, and should be removed.

Thanks.

I've got multiple clients set up to sync via FF sync. Some are older, some are newer.

However, looking at the newest client (set up ~2 weeks ago), I noticed something: It only shows a browser history up to approx. one year in the past. I've checked other clients. My oldes client goes back to ~2016, which is 4 years form now. I know my oldes client is older than 2016, so there has to be more.

Does FF Sync skip older entries? IMHO I'd have to see the exact same history on my older client than on my newer client. That is not the case. Any ideas?

PDFs are always downloaded and local copy opened instead of in-browser

Hello, at some point in the recent updates (with FF 80? I can't say as I have skipped a few updates over summer and only recently updated again to the most recent Beta), the way in which my Firefox browser handles PDFs has changed. After quite a bit of research and scouring through other threads I haven't been able to find a way to reverse it. I do hope there is...

-PREVIOUS BEHAVIOUR- 1) When I clicked on a link to randomsite.com/example.pdf, FF would open the PDF within the browser, either in the same tab or (if I requested it) in a new tab or window. The URL line would show "randomsite.com/example.pdf 2) The only exception was where a website had forced the PDF to be downloaded, in which case the dialogue asking me how I wanted to open the file would appear. In earlier days, in that case I had to pick Adobe or Preview or similar, more recently the dialogue also allowed me to open the file in Firefox. In that case, the URL line would show the local URL, i.e. "file:///Users/Michael/Downloads/example.pdf"

-CURRENT BEHAVIOUR- 1) What now happens is for any PDF I click on whatsoever, Firefox forces me to download it. Depending on what I put in about:preferences, I either get the dialog window asking me to make a choice, or it directly opens a new Firefox tab, but crucially it still downloads the file and shows me the local URL of it.

-WHAT I WOULD LIKE- A way to revert to the previous behavior where for 90% of PDFs, I never downloaded them but just viewed them in-browser. I look at a large number of different PDF files online every day for my work and I certainly don't want to download all of them and having to de-clutter my download folder all the time.

-WHAT I HAVE TRIED- - I went to "Applications" in about:preferences. I can set the relevant entries for PDF files to "Always ask" or to "Open in Firefox" but even with the latter set, it still downloads them and opens the local copy, rather than not saving a local copy in /Downloads/ at all. - I have checked in about:config and "pdfjs.disabled" is set to "false" as it should be

I don't think I have any extensions or add-ons related to PDFs, in any case I haven't installed any new ones recently.

Any clues appreciated, my overflowing Downloads folder is grateful.

Since installing Big Sur on my iMac I, when I click on a url in a Apple Mail email I get the "profile not accessible" message. If Firefox happens to be running when I click on the link it will work.

I've tried all of the suggestions for fixing this issue to no avail.

Just wondering if anyone else is having the same problem with Big Sur?

Just updated to 82.0 and all of a sudden I am unable to print legal size. All settings, including both Windows and Firefox shows legal paper size. Firefox prints in letter size only. All other apps/programs print in legal size. Any thoughts on this. Only started this morning after the update. Checked on another computer with Firefox prior to update and it prints legal, then updated that computer's Firefox to 82.0 on windows 10 pro and same issue. Thank you

Don't you think that if browsers rehabilitate a native "RSS one click subscribe" feature, with better UX (RSS actions/reader nicely integrated to the browser) it could revolutionize the way we subscribe to content updates, removing the need to rely on emails/newsletters in a lot of cases (then being more eco-friendly)? Users would receive content updates notifications directly in the browser, their feeds being synchronized through their browser account, etc.

Web developpers would just have to place subscription buttons: <input type="subscribe">

And a W3C Standard would unify how browsers should implement the "Subscription" feature, focusing on UX (I feel this is the point influencing usage data for the most part, RSS still being a tech-savvy thing).

Feeds handling was removed in 2018 in Firefox.

I've had major stability issues since this update on my Mac (version 10.13.2). Tabs will become unresponsive and show the spinner icon and sometimes the whole browser become unresponsive. I've tried disabling add-ons, refresh, and even creating new profiles. Sometimes I see a process in activity monitor like Firefox Developer EditionCP Web Content or Firefox Developer EditionCP Privileged Content not responding and can force quit a single tab. Sometimes doing that crashes the browser.

I'd really prefer to keep this as my default browser, but it's not looking likely anymore.
