Hello,

Something was altered with the Firefox browser. My default page shows a Google Search bar. When I type something in the bar to do a search and hitting enter then brings up https://search.yahoo.com with my search. I didn't intentionally change anything within Firefox and if I go to the "Options" page under my Firefox page, it shows that my default search engine is Google.

How do I fix my searches to use Google and not use Yahoo?

If I use a different browser like Chrome, or Microsoft Edge, they both use Google search correctly.

This problem just started yesterday August 13, 2020.

I recently installed Firefox as my default browser on my laptop with windows 10. When I try to download an svg file to my computer, it comes in as a Microsoft Edge HTML Document that isn't compatible to my Silhouette Crafting Program. It doesn't give me an option to download from Firefox. I changed to Firefox to get away from Microsoft Edge. I don't know where to find any settings to correct this? What do I need to do? TIA

Print preview shows a single page, which is totally appropriate for the content. It says "1 of 1" at the bottom. Click the print button, and it prints 2 pages. (No changes done to formatting, selected printer or anything else.) The second page is completely unnecessary and consists only of a header line at the top, identical to the first page, and a footer at the bottom, which says "2 of 2" and the date and time.

'Print preview is NOT a preview' of what it actually is going to print and reformats the document without warning or permission.

In Network settings, I have "Use system proxy settings" but when I change these (after connecting to a VPN), firefox does not pick up the change and I have to manually go to Network changes and switch to a different option and back for FF to pick up the new system proxy settings. Chrome picks up the changes automatically.

Is this a bug? Is there any faster way to achieve this? (For instance some addon that does this with a single click?)

Thank you!

I cannot get any audio from my laptop speakers using Firefox. The behavior literally changed from one day to the next. It worked yesterday, it doesn't today. System sounds and other programs work fine, it's exclusively a Firefox issue. I changed the setting to allow video/audio in autoplay, and some other sites have suggested lowering the security.sandbox level to 2. I really don't want to do that unless it's my only option. Now, when I move my laptop from my "normal" external/USB sound card and use it somewhere else, I have no audio. I've also checked that the correct source is being used and is not muted. Absolutely confuzzled.

Several weeks ago Awesome screenshot stopped colorizing screenshots from one website only, earthnullschool. I save 22 different pics each day from this site and have been doing so for the last 6 years. On Facebook, earthnull admin said that nothing has changed on their end. I sent a report to Awesome, and now one to you as Firefox is superior to Edge for ease of use when saving the screenshots. I started using Edge as a result of Firefox no longer correctly taking the screenshot, but it takes around 9 extra steps to save each pic. Can anyone help me in getting Firefox to correctly fill the screenshots as it used to do?

FF79 x64 Win7 NoScript, Ublock Origin A financial website I use has suddenly stopped working for me. It will reject my logins as if I had entered them incorrectly. Sometimes it works after the 3rd try, but no longer. After multiple failures an authentication dialog will appear, but that also fails when proper codes are entered. I always use a private window for this site, and Noscript, Ublock Origin are not enabled for private windows. Explicitly disabling these addons does not fix the issue. I have no problem when I try the ancient IE I still have.

The institution has told me that FF users have been having issues. I tried clearing cache,cookies and history, and this allowed me to logon exactly one time. I am hoping the fix is a simple setting change. The suggestion to use FF safe mode is not a real solution. Are private windows not appropriate for these types of websites?

When I try to print articles from the internet I get the following message "An error occured while printing. I have a Brother printer and checking with their tech. dept. and they said the problem was not with them or my computer. The problem was with my browser. They came to that conclusion after they suggested I use another browser. I did that using Microsoft Explorer and the printer did print OK.

Hi there. I'm a blind web developer and I was wondering if there is some way to make the Firefox developer console more screen reader friendly. As it stands, I have no way of viewing JavaScript runtime errors or much of anything besides the element hierarchy when inspecting an element, and even this only provides very little information. I ask because there seems to be a big focus lately on testing for accessibility, but the tools to do so seem completely inaccessible themselves.

I would welcome any suggestions on how to use/improve the dev tools with a screen reader (I'm using NVDA) or an add-on I can down load that would be more friendly to me. I saw a mention of one called "Firebug", but that appears to be an outdated post.

Hi there,

I am new to Firefox. I have a link like this: href="~/LostStolen/Create/?step=new". In which the LostStolen is the controller, and Create is a method in the controller. When we use Chrome as a browser, the Create method gets the step as new, while we use Firefox, the Create method gets the step as null. So this makes the application doesn't work in Firefox at all if we can't fix this issue.

Please help!

Thanks,

Joseph Hua

There appears to be something completely broken in the latest Firefox UI for me. Its making me want to throw my laptop out the window.

When I have text selected in fields such as the address bar, or fields, sometimes rather than 'overwriting' the selection, it appends it. Or sometimes when I select all the text in a field and paste, I end up with the original selection appended by the pasted text, or vice-versa. It makes interacting with websites via the keyboard absolutely pointless in this browser.

Main affected site for me has been the amazon web services console, which is my main use-case for Firefox due to containers, however apparently Chrome now has a parallel function for that, so I'll spend the rest of the night looking that one up, since Chrome is not exhibiting this issue.
