Can You Automatically Revert To DEFAULT Printer Settings Each Print Attempt?

Firefox used to revert to default printer settings every time we make an attempt to print. This was ideal for us since we are a business that prints the same style of documents frequently throughout the day, only requiring us to change the settings as needed for one-offs that had different requirements. It was very efficient.

Since the latest update, Firefox "remembers" any changes in printer settings for the next time it prints. So, when we make changes for those one-offs, the next batch of prints are coming out wrong. It is wasting a lot of paper and time.

Is there an option somewhere in Firefox's about:config that turns off Firefox's print settings memory, and forces it to revert to the default printer settings?

Hello all and I hope everyone is safe in this pandemic world! In my Applications and in my profile directory, I have Mibbit as the default irc and it comes up everytime I reinstall firefox. I think that this is strange, mibbit is for old crooners isn't it? I would think that FF has advanced! I would like to not see it when I reinstall firefox, is this possible

I also have an installed plugin Shock wave Flash...did I install this or does it come from FF?

thank you,

Now that Microsoft has moved to a Chrome based browser with the newest release of Edge, automatic, and fully functional website translations are now standard in both Edge and Chrome. I am a US Citizen, living in Mexico, that is not yet fully fluent in Spanish. This has severely limited my ability to use Firefox, which honestly, is a pretty big deal for me. I prefer Firefox for multiple reasons, but privacy is my major concern. Is Firefox working on a solution to this massive hole in Mozilla's browser product offering? Two major competitors are now offering automatic translation. What gives?

I am creating a policies.json file to block all Add ons except ones specified specifically.

I have figured out how to do this for normal extensions, but I have run into issues when applying the same principle to themes. What am I doing wrong? Here is my sample code that works to allow the ublock add on, no problem, but it is not working to allow the matte-black-red theme:

{

 "policies": {
   "ExtensionSettings": {
     "*": {
       "blocked_install_message": "Error message to display",
       "install_sources": [
         "https://addons.mozilla.org/"
       ],
       "installation_mode": "blocked"
     },
     "uBlock0@raymondhill.net": {
       "install_url": "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/latest/ublock-origin/latest.xpi",
       "installation_mode": "allowed"
     },
     "{a7589411-c5f6-41cf-8bdc-f66527d9d930}.xpi": {
       "install_url": "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/latest/matte-black-red/latest.xpi",
       "installation_mode": "allowed"
     }
   }
 }

}

Had a problem with an add-on that resulted in all add-ons being deleted. As I wasn't sure what caused the problem, I deleted Firefox and reinstalled it. After the reinstall no add-ons were present. I added back 1 that I could remember, but the second one is gone. I do not remember the name of the add-on but found it very useful in managing pop-ups, videos automatically playing, etc. Would really like to get it back. By any chance, does Firefox store add-on information so that I might be able to find the missing add-on?

Why does Firefox keep changing my default search engine to Yahoo? I only want to use Google. I go into the preferences, I delete "BrowserDefault," and have it so only Google is shown as a search engine (see screenshot) and everything works fine. But a day or two later--and this has happened a dozen times now--the "BrowserDefault" is back and Yahoo is once again my default search engine. This happens over and over and over again, and I just want Yahoo deleted and gone forever.

Why is Firefox making these changes without my permission?
