Unfortunately, allowing Firefox to update means we are now stuck with the new print dialogue, which is now as un-customizeable as all other browsers. The worst element of this from my point of view as a teacher who frequently prints from the internet is the newly imposed loss of the capacity to customize headers and footers. The two-pages-per-sheet option is obviously a good thing, but in order to number the pages, one is required to splay the URL across the entire top of the page. This is yet worse if you attempt to use the two-page-per-sheet format; you will now have the URL displayed TWICE across the top of the entire page. It's ugly and unnecessary, as is the date and time that I prepped the material. The title is at the top of any article; now it also have to be on every sheet multiple times, alongside the URL, the date and time, and only one possible numbering format. What is sad is that it appears not to be understood that the desired form for much printing from the internet is something approximating the appearance of a book or journal page; whether it is two on one page, or single pages per sheet. If anyone knows how to preserve BOTH the customizable headers and footers AND select one OR two pages per sheet, we'd be very well-helped.

Hi, In Chrome, I can assign a shortcut key to launch any extension. In Firefox I cannot. There are one or two that I use constantly when form-filling, so this absense is a major productivity loss and means people like me won't switch.

In Firefox's Manage Your Extensions --> Manage Extension Shortcuts page, there's a message: "The following extensions do not have shortcuts [extensions are listed]". Chrome doesn't have such a limitation; any extension can be launched by a shortcut key.

Furthermore, I can't submit a feature suggestion because Help --> Submit Feedback takes you to a dead page. "Please check back soon - we've paused submissions". Not a good impression upon returning to Firefox having spent the last seven years away using Chrome.

Please match your competitor!

Cheers.

When I try to share one of my monitor's via WebRTC (e.g. https://www.webrtc-experiment.com/Pluginfree-Screen-Sharing) the options are the open windows and "share full screen", which is a combination of both my monitors. (1280x1024 and 1920x1080) I tested this with firefox 86.0 and firefox-nightly 88.0a1.20210301. To ensure it aren't addon's or a weird setting that I made that stop the screen sharing I used the command "firefox-nightly --profile /tmp/firefox-test" I use Arch-Linux with i3 as window manager with the X11 Server. I would except to be able to select the individual monitor's instead of the combination of all.

This message is from a concerned life long Firefox user and a life long staunch Firefox advocate. I have resisted IE, Chrome, Safari and all the big tech browsers for well over a decade. Now, sadly, I had to dump Firefox and switch to a Brave clone.

It appears that Firefox has joined the cancel culture mob.... The censorhip cheerleaders.

If the filth in this article is indeed the company view, I cannot in good concience use firefox: https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2021/01/08/we-need-more-than-deplatforming/.

Dump Mitchell Baker. Retract the blog. Have her put it on her personal wordpress. Anything. Please. I want to use Firefox again, but with this sick world-view at the helm, I cannot support it.

I have attempted multiple fresh installations of Firefox Nightly, including previous versions. Upon start-up, Nightly opens the profile selection screen, and promptly hangs. Only response is the Windows error sound upon clicking anywhere within the profile selection window.

I frequently have problems with Developer Edition and Nightly every time Windows forces a system update. To solve issues with Developer Edition, I usually have to roll back to version 79, then walk the versions forward.

Similar techniques have worked with Nightly in the past, however current attempts are failing at the profile window.

Since I am unable to get past profile creation, crash reports and dump files are not being generated.

I recently switch from Chrome to firefox for my main browser, I really like it! However, I like to use a music bot to listen to music with my friends over a discord call. The audio I'm getting from the call is low quality (not choppy or anything but like, grainy? like you're using half broke old headphones) and I don't have a history of this happening. A refresh of the page didn't do anything. I'm assuming it's a firefox issue because this is the first time it's happened. Are there settings I can use to improve this?

I have a Macbook laptop and I'm using a secondary screen. I use Firefox on my secondary screen, and anytime I hover over a bookmark or a button that has a tooltip, the tooltip shows on my primary monitor, instead of showing on the secondary monitor. Steps to reproduce: 1. Setup a Mac with a secondary monitor 2. Launch Firefox on the second monitor 3. Enable the Bookmark Bar and make sure you have some bookmark set in a folder structure 4. Open one of the folder so it drops down 5. Hover over one of the items in the folder SEE: The tooltip appears on the primary monitor floating over empty space, instead of hovering over the proper menu entry in the secondary monitor

I have attached a screen capture (obscuring some personal items).

Note: Some tooltips show in the right place, but all bookmark tooltips,
