Re: anyone wanna give this pdf file a shot

I'm sure we could speculate about a lot of things, but it might be easier if
you either send us the PDF, or else give us a link where we can download it
from, and then we can try to be helpful about this particular document.

I think the only times I may notice fire fox not responding is with web visum. There is a little check box now I ticked and have not noticed it saying that any more. I think it was saying something about a script not responding so just checked the box then hit continue and it seems to be ok since.


It may not be the same problem.

Cearbhall,

           Are you positive that Firefox has not gone into a brief "Not Responding" period?  I get these not infrequently and just got one when I clicked on the March 2006 journal, but after Firefox "came back to life" I got my usual dialog box asking if I wanted to open it with my PDF viewer or save it.  On my partner's machine, which still uses the in-browser plug-in to view PDFs, it loads and displays quite quickly.

           The "Not Responding" thing does not appear to be linked to your website in any way, as I get it at random.  Clicking through on other journal links gets an instant pop-up of my save versus view in PDF viewer dialog.

Brian,

 

You pronounce Cearbhall like “karool” with a very flat “a”. The first syllable is a bit like the gorl’s name Carol but the second one is the long “oo” sound.

I can view pdf’s in my firefox 49 with nvda 16.3 and I have no pdf reader installed but firefox can view pdf’s ok

Including your site pdf

I am running win 10 1607

I know this info doesn’t help you but all I can suggest is to create a clean firefox profile with no extensions and with default settings

And go from there

Re: Opening attached files in Firefox

 

Cearbhall,

             The issue of where something is read, in-browser versus externally in your chosen PDF Reader/Viewer/Editor, is an issue of its own.

             Take a look at  https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/display-pdf-in-browser.html, and see if somehow one of your settings in Firefox related to this has somehow gotten changed.

Re: got locked out of my gmail account in firefox

 

It is not possible to change one's username for a Google account once it is established.  See either one of these help pages at Google:  one  two

You can set up a new Google account and forward all your existing e-mail messages there if you really want to delete an existing account and have an entirely new username under the Google Account structure, but you can't change an established username.  If you have anything else associated with a Google account you delete, say items on Google Drive, those all go to the great bit bucket in the sky if you delete that account as well.  Once deleted an account cannot be recovered.

I've actually got three different Google accounts, one of which has the same username that I have here.

I manage a site called www.brayarts.net and I would invite everyone to try out this problem which I am having with firefox49.01 in Windows 10 with NVDA 2016.3.

 

The site contains an archive of Arts Journals as PDF files arranged in a table in date order. When I go to open a file in Firefox, the link will not open. When I switch over to Internet Explorer Version: 11.187.14393.0 the file opens in Adobe perfectly!

 

Anyone know what has happened in Firefox?

Also. If you don’t remember your security question. It’s something like who was your first teacher? It’s happened to me. I had an old recovery e-mail address that does not exist.  You can have your recovery password or info to a new recovery e-mail. Also like Apple Google now has 2 step verification so you wont have to remember your security question.  If you use e-mail on your iphone You have to use it to allow the app if you want the mail coming to your inbox. Gmail is getting secure like apple.

I honestly can't remember if Gmail does, or ever did, a "timed lock out" but if it does you will still need to activate the "Forgot password?" link on whatever page it is you hit that requires password entry since it appears you've forgotten your password.  There are a number of ways "in" to Gmail and where you get asked for your password can vary. 

If you have not done so already, once you have this ironed out you really should set up your Google Account recovery options where you can have an e-mail sent to an alternate address or a text sent to a specific phone number if you get locked out of your account that will help you verify ownership and get back in.

Remember that if you reset your password you will need to update your account information with that password for any and all e-mail clients that you're using that currently access your Gmail account.

I can't say whether this is the cause of the problem, but I do notice that the very first character of the HTML source code should be a less-than symbol and is in fact a lower-case f.

Whether that's sufficient to cause Firefox 49.01 to be unhappy about the entire page, I don't know, but it would be worth fixing anyway.
