I am using Hotdocs portal, which is an in-house document assembly tool. Firefox is the recommended browser, but it is recently handling 2016 docx files incorrectly. When we choose a file on the portal site (internal site), we go through the interview and are presented with a link to "download" the assembled file. When you click that link, a pop-up appears showing the file name as abc.docx but then says it is a Word 97 - 2003 document, even though it is not. The original template is not. If I choose to open the file, it ends up opening and showing as abc.docx.doc If I save the file, instead of opening it, it saves as abc.docx.

If we run this same process in IE/Edge, the file opens as abc.docx as it should. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Is there anything that could be causing this? I've tried a bunch of troubleshooting steps and nothing seems to change this outcome.

Thank you.

When I use Firefox on the external monitor, I set the zoom level to 150%. When I leave home a take my laptop with me, I set the zoom level to 100% to use with a smaller screen.

I want to automate setting the zoom level.

Is there a way to programmatically set the zoom level from a script? Does Firefox expose such an API / command-line tool?

Thanks!

"question: says it all. I have gone to "Options' and checked all the boxes and still I get only an abbreviated list of sites that I visit or have visited and this does not change with time. I have been using Firefox for years and this has never happened after an upgrade. For instance every time i want to go to my Hotmail account, I have to type in the URL in the address bar where as I used to be able to hit the drop down arrow in the address bar, a menu would drop down and i could click on Hotmail or Bank of America, etc and be taken to the site.

I have read every article on this I can find, including everything in Firefox. I cannot get videos to stop automatically play. I can get them to not play sound. I have changed every single setting in about:config, media.autoplay. Nothing stops them from playing. I have used numbers from 0 to 5 in media.autoplay.default. Attached is a screenshot of my settings.

I do not have any plug-ins at this point, as I just installed Windows 10 and am configuring my computer.

I am extremely sensitive to these moving videos; they make me feel sick. So I really need them disabled. PCMag is a good example of a site with a million different (types?) of videos playing.

Widevine will revoke Widevine Content Decryption Module which is earlier than ver 4.10.2209.0. https://www.widevine.com/news

Google has already released new version of CDM. However, the version on Firefox 88.0b7 is still 4.10.1582.2. You can check on the following menu: [Add-ons and Themes]>[Plugin]>[Widevine Content Decryption Module]

My questions are: 1. When is new Widevine CDM coming to Firefox? 1. Can Add-on Manger provide this update to older Firefox?

Hello, Each time I try to download the new version of Firefox (70.0.1) it is redirecting to download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net however the link displayed from the right click of the mouse is https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-latest-ssl&os=osx&lang=en-US

I am also trying to find out the file size of the dmg (mine says 72.5Mb) and the Firefox app which seems to be very bloaty in excess of 203.9 Mb

When I drag the Firefox folder to the Applications folder.

However I have gatekeeper set to Allow Apps downloaded from the App Store. YET Firefox opens without having to go into gatekeeper and make changes.

eg. "Open anyway" or "App Store and Identified developers"

Can someone confirm the following i) Current version of Firefox for Max OS X ii) The current size of the dmg iii) The size of the app iv) whether download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net is a a valid Mozilla.org affiliated website

I downloaded and installed the firefox app and nothing happens. No menu. No tabs. The word "firefox" appears in the upper left corner of my screen and a "." appears under the app, indicating that it is open. The screen "blinked" momentarily when I opened the app. I am a longtime user of Firefox and this same thing happened this morning when I opened the app, which I uninstalled, and then downloaded and installed this new app. Same problem.

Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!
