Old Bookmarks are Syncing coming from offline and Changing all my good configurations bookmarks on other computers. I would love to be able to synchronize across computers, that is update each other with new information instead of overwriting new Bookmark lists Withhold configurations . This is almost killed my business thankfully I found a copy of the old bookmarks. I'm going to restore the but I'm still going to experience the problem if I don't understand how to erase what's off-line and start from scratch.

Hello, when I print www page from Firefox using "Foxit PhantomPDF Printer", sometimes only first page of document is generated and then I get "Print preview error - An error occurred while printing." (Generated file opens in Foxit PhantomPDF and contains the first page of the printed www page.) If I try to print the same www page again (immediately after), it is always successful and all pages of the www page are printed. What is the reason of this strange behavior? It happens only sometimes and only on some www pages. I don't know if it is caused by Foxit or by Firefox because the error dialog box contains no information who threw the error.

When I go to one site, Firefox is now asking me microphone permission on every page on that site during the same session.

This did not happen until two days ago. It used to be when I granted permission for my microphone to be used on that site, it applied to every page on it throughout the session, as long as I did not close out, sign out or close the window. Now, every time I go to speak, when on a new page, it asks for permission. Since this is a language learning site, this has become a real pain.

There is no "remember this setting" dialog either when I first give permission to use the microphone. It is asking for permission for the general site, so it's not asking for each page. When I check the permissions box after moving to the next page, no permissions are granted.

Nothing that I can tell has changed. It's not doing this with other browsers, which is concerning.

I checked my settings site and nothing has changed. I also did Firefox refresh and that did not help. Signed off and signed in again, on both the laptop and website -- all did not change this.

Why does alternate search engine select ("This time, search with...") require extra action?

I constantly use the "This time, search with..." option in the search bar to switch between my default search engine and others on the fly. Since version 84.0, this now needlessly prepends the query with a search engine label and requires an additional action to complete (either a return or click of search arrow).

I feel as though the clicking of any of those alternate search engine options is enough to establish intent by the user and should act as a submit button for the request. The only "advantage" this new functionality allows for is a select-first, query-after approach, which I find uncommon.

My request:

1) Return previous behavior. 2) Implement hybrid -- Search-first, query-after produces label; query first, search after submits. 3) Provide an option in the settings to toggle behavior.

Hope someone can help/shed some light on the change,

Thanks

How do I configure Firefox to connect to my proxy server using HTTPS, not HTTP?

If I enter "tls.example.com" as my HTTP proxy, and 443 as the port number, Firefox sends an unencrypted "CONNECT" header on port 443. Of course, this is wrong, because my proxy server only speaks HTTPS, not HTTP.

If I enter "https://tls.example.com/" as my HTTP proxy, and 443 as the port number, Firefox says "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." but in fact, Wireshark confirms that Firefox never even tries to connect to anything! It never sends a single SYN packet at all.

According to: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=378637 Firefox does support the behavior described. That link doesn't explain how to configure it, though.

I really admire the Firefox browser for its many innovative and adaptive functions and applications that one can customize to their needs without sacrificing security and privacy. The one that I find extremely helpful the most is Dark Reader. As an individual who faces neurophysiological challenges from a traumatic brain injury from many years ago, Dark Reader has enabled me to enjoy working and reading on the internet without having to limit myself or wear super-dark lenses due to sensitivity. The app has worked for most other sites except this support site on the Firefox browser. Because I have to use Chrome for my job, I have tested your support page there with the same app and it seems to work there. Is there something that I am missing?

I cannot save my password for the Firefox account login page as there is no form information on the page. This is strange as there is a help article in Firefox Lockwise that describes this problem and suggests workarounds, but they do not work on the Firefox account.

Is there a way around this? If not, why does Mozilla block password managers when they are a the same time promoting their own password manager? I am quite frustrated about this as I think there is a flawed logic behind the decision to block password managers to "enable" security.

I have 2 monitors i one room and TV in another (as 3rd display). I have Firefox icon in the taskbar on all 3 monitors (in Windows 10). Sometimes I go to room to watch some YouTube video on TV, but my Firefox window in on another monitor. Also sometimes when I switch from Full Screen display to normal, my Firefox window can move to the wrong monitor. It would be great if I could right click on the taskbar Firefox icon and click some option like "move browser window to this monitor". Is is possible to do it with some AddOn or in some other way?

I recently installed my OS and backup the entire profile folder of Firefox. When I put the key4 and logins file in to the fresh install there was only one password in it, the remaining passwords were gone. I also noticed that a new file (logins.json.corrupt) is created along with file(logins.json). I tried to paste the files again to fix it but same issue. I think the files are corrupt. Is there any way to fix it?

Recently (the last week), my Firefox browser is randomly dropping characters from the text of a web page. I have the latest update (83.0 (64-bit)) and have also tried rebooting and uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. This problem is not happening with other programs, (text editors, spreadsheets) or in chrome. I have attached an image below to show the problem. If I refresh the page, usually all the characters appear. If I select the text, the characters also appear. Any suggestions? I haven't recently added any new plugins.

I have a new laptop (Lenovo Legion 7, Win10 install) which I've been using for about a week now. However, with watching videos (Youtube mainly) & streams (Twitch) I get stuttering video playback. The laptop has a NVidia RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics chip so I wouldn't think that is the issue. I've seen several different topics on the internet already about tweaking settings in the about:config page related to video stuttering (though most relate to clearing media.benchmark.vp9.fps and restarting FF). None of those things helped. The only thing I found was disabling hardware acceleration. If I disable that, everything is fine with both video & stream playback. I wonder if this is related to the NVidia driver, but I have the latest one installed on the system (457.51 as of writing). This issue also persisted with older drivers that came with the system.

The attached data is from when I have the hardware acceleration enabled, and thus have the stuttering video playback.

Just purchased a Windows Surface Pro and setting it up to be the same as my Windows 10 Laptop. I have synced my Laptop which I would understand to mean that my bookmarks, ID/passwords etc are copied to a master in their cloud. Signing in to Firefox on Surface Pro and turning on sync does not give me the same setup as the PC.

1st question: How does Sync know that a device should be updated to match the cloud version, or the cloud version should be updated to match the device? If two devices are made different by daily actions, and both have sync turned on, does that make duplicates on both devices?

2nd question: I was expecting to see my pinned tabs, and my bookmark folders with contents be synced as well but not sure that is included.  ?
