BarTender Software No Longer Shows Printer Status

I know this is a longshot. I used Firefox for the last couple of years with Seagull Scientific's BarTender software on my Windows 7 pc. Now my PC was wiped out and Windows 10 as part of my company's initiative to get everyone up to Windows 10. BarTender uses a driver to talk to your print drivers and provide a status back to the BarTender server and webpage that we use. After the move to Windows 10 Firefox will not work with BarTender. It works in MS Edge and Chrome.

 I've got a ticket into Seagull Scientific and I can foresee how this will go.  They will point me back to Firefox and then I'll get pointed back to the vendor.   I know it will be hard to find someone with a similar issue.  But maybe someone had some issue with another driver, etc that stopped talking to Firefox.   
I've tried to turn off all of Firefox's protection stuff that might be interfering and still not working. 
I have used Firefox and prefer it over any others.   But I also don't like the idea of having to change browsers depending on what I'm doing.   Besides, this software I have to regularly use.   So if I can't find a solution I may have to abandon use of Firefox.

we have installed Firefox 85.0.2 (esr). we are working in home office with a vpn connection (citrix gateway). the system is set to use proxy settings with a script - every time I start firefox new, it is set to "auto-detect proxy setting for this network" and I have no internet. Also with disabled vpn connection - i have to set the proxy setting to "no proxy" or "use system proxy settings" who sets the setting default to "auto-detect ..."? why is this not working in home-office

Is it possible to have a default container? When I open a site in a container, if I then use the open window to go to a URL that I have not assigned a container to, i would like this new site to open in a "default" container. I believe the Facebook container works like this, it only allows Facebook related sites to be opened in that container any other sites are open in a new window/tab. An example, if i open a bank URL in a "Banking" container, log off and click on another unrelated bookmark (say Mozilla help), It would be nice if it opened in a separate container I had assigned to be the default container.

Hi, FF Community,

It seems that almost every time I change to another screen, I get the "FF is not your current browser, would you like to make FF your ...."

I suspect that Microsoft Edge s the culprit, but but what ever I try to remove Edge from my computer, nothing works.

Does anyone have a fix for this maddening problem?

Please note, that I am not a computer whiz, so esoteric terminology leaves me scratching my head with a hind foot.

I have triple checked my computer for a virus, and it is clean.

Thank you, Nick M.

I have my Instagram tab pinned, as well as my Facebook Messenger tab, and every time I start Firefox, the Instagram tab is not pinned anymore. Yet, the Messenger tab is still pinned.

Is this a bug or a feature of the Facebook Container? I assume a bug since it only happens to my Instagram Tab.

I am not able to see live Streaming MJPEG video from both of my cameras on my new Samsung S21 Ultra. I had an S10 Plus and Firefox played both cameras video stream just fine. Odd thing is FireFox Focus plays both video streams like I experienced on my S10. But I have to login manually every time. I want to have the convenience of reg FireFox remembering user names etc. Any help is appreciated.

Hey There, since I installed Win10 I do have the problem, that Firefox (updated) has big problems with just one Webside: www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de. It loads veeeery slowly, pictures need next to one minute to load and a yello top banner says allways: "Eine Webseite verlangsamt Ihren Browser". Which means: A webside is slowing down Your browser. All Tips and Tricks from Google are tried already. No success. Other websides and photos are loaded normally. Anybody from here can help?

It seems Mozilla has removed the SSB option from firefox. I used that all the time and without it, I have had to revert to using chrome, which I don't want to do. Wny remove a feature? Its buggy? So what. A buggy hidden beta feature is better than no feature at all. It has users, including me. So just leave it as unsupported. Don't just axe it.

As to it having "no benefit". Absolutely the opposite - in a world where every app is now a cloud web app, we need to be able to separate different apps within windows, not just have multiple indistinguishable windows or tabs for each of the apps. So yes this was a seriously retrograde decision, and one which is sending firefox in a backward direction. SSB was the future. It's just few people were aware.

So when are mozilla going to reverse this decision? Does anyone know any other clever way to achieve the same thing - i.e. a separate fixed app for each webpage.

I've just received an email on my - previously - main email address (let's say: e1), about a data breach on another (e2) email address of mine.

When I log in to Firefox Monitor, with my main email address (e3), only that email address is displayed as monitored. The whole list (I don't know, 10+ addresses) that should be monitored, is gone.

Can someone explain to me a. why is the mail not send to the main email address and b. where is my list of monitored email addresses?
