I use Firefox as my default browser and as the default browser for viewing PDF files. I noticed after Firefox 100 was released, the PDF icon changed from the Firefox icon to a different PDF icon. At first I thought the change was related to a Windows update but it appears to be from Firefox as I can see the Firefox logo in the background. I tried switching to a different browser but I can see they have their own version of the PDF icon. I like the original Firefox PDF icon and would prefer to use that as the default icon for PDF files. Is there a way I can switch the PDF icon back to the original one?

When using built in search (google default) -- browser stops responding. Shows Firefox new tab background when loading the search. Issue resolves on Firefox close and re-open. Paste and go, creating new tabs also fail with same 'new tab background' displayed. Issue is intermittent but appears often, at least 4-5 times a day.

Tested same sample search with google chrome in same time period, no issue.

Issue appeared around the V99 update. Fix would be greatly appreciated - exiting and re-opening browser, dropping all tabs to reload is a serious usability issue.

Hello, this did not happen in past. Tonight Gmail again says "not connected" with a countdown. When looking at the Network tool I can see that each POST request ends with NS_BINDING_ABORTED error code. It seems that those requests are aborted before a single packet is sent over network. Is there any permanent solution? Last time I got around the problem by restarting the browser. But I am not happy to do that over and over again because the Firefox is bugged.

No matter what I do in terms of refreshing Firefox, starting it in Safe mode, or changing performance settings, Google-related web sites such as mail.google.com and the Google search engine stop working after a few minutes. If I exit Firefox and restart it then Google will work for a little while again. All the solutions I have found on here don't work to solve this issue. It seems to have started with a recent update to Firefox (maybe 100.0.2?)

Hello,

When accessing my Old Navy account they require a 2 step process for Logging In. Once I click on the login button it takes me to a page where it asks for my email. Here's where I hit the issue: FireFox Password Manager does not fill this in for me; not even the auto-fill works here. After I enter my email it then takes me to a page where my password is filled in (yay!). I'm glad that it at least fills in the password but I'd like to not have to fill in my email on the previous page.

I tried to create a new entry in Password Manager but it won't take the entire url; it shortens it. This url changes each time I go thru the process which complicates everything. I was hoping to take one of those urls (https://secure-oldnavy.gap.com/my-account/sign-in?flowId=wJb1e) but it shortened it to just (https://secure-oldnavy.gap.com). I even tried creating a new entry without the last few characters (https://secure-oldnavy.gap.com/my-account/sign-in?flowId=) but again it shortened it.

Is there a way to get FF Password Manager to provide auto-fill of my email address?

Thanks, Andre'a

I manage two W10 PCs, each with FF installed and fully updated (v100.0). Firefox on Windows has the following bars at the top: 1) the title bar (Firefox…) in Windows style, 2) the edit bar (File Edit History…), 3) the tool bar (customised: eg. Home, Go back, Go forward, Reload, Show Sidebars, Download, Print…), 4) the browser tabs bar containing the open tabs containing a website page.

The problem is that on one PC, the browser tabs bar comes right after the edit bar.

I can't find how to change this, since the solutions are too old or unclear. Please, help.

Ever since Firefox updated to the new version I've been having constant crashes. I've tried restarting in Safe Mood which doesn't help. Pretty much Firefox will open, say it's not responding, and then by the time it looks like it's about to restore my tabs it crashes. I had to do a refresh and transferred the backup files from an older session which worked, but then it eventually crashed again. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and tried opening my older profile but it keeps happening. I really need to restore my previous session. There's nothing with my computer that seems to be causing it. I did have 2 windows open with about 8,000 tabs total which I'm sure could be part of the reason, but it never really had trouble before and only just started crashing since the update. Is there any way to fix this without starting over? I read that this is a bug that others have dealt with previously.

Some additional information. I'm on a 64-bit Windows 10 PC.

This worked before ver 100 and suddenly has stopped working with ver 100.

I even rebooted the computer (Win 10, 64-bit) and same behavior continues.

The problem is : Some of the time FF just records 0 bytes file and says nothing. I suspect that FF inspect the URL of the links and discard ( perhaps for security reason ) ones that do not begin with HTTP.

The bypass is : One has to copy the link and insert in in the new page of FF.

The solution would be to change FF code.

Thank you.

I am an a US citizen, living in Europe! How do I keep Mozilla from changing languages on me? I just connected my Laptop PC and everything is in the German language. Why? I'm sorry, but I must insist that Mozilla stop doing this. My mother tongue is American English, and when I keep getting your communications in a foreign language, there is a good possibility that I might misinterpret what has been written by Mozilla to me. Or is the problem with me living in Europe?
