I just bought an HP Officejet 9018. I tried printing a receipt that was sent as an attachment to my gmail. It only prints very small in the upper left hand corner even though the print preview looks normal. I tried to print a return label that Amazon sent me a link to. It printed the same way. I called HP & after connecting with my laptop & trying many different settings unsuccessfully, they had me try to print from Chrome. The attached receipt in gmail & the return label printed fine from Chrome. It also printed fine from my gmail in my Android phone & my iPad, so the issue is only when in Firefox on my Windows 10 computer. My saved documents print fine. I just updated to the latest Firefox today, but the issue started when I got the HP printer & tried to print while using Firefox 2 days ago.

I saw instructions in here on checking the paper_data. It shows letter. I changed from "fit to page width" to Scale 100. I still have the same issue. There was one other instructions given to someone in Mozilla Support to click "file" & then something else, but I have nothing on my page that says "file". I assume the person answering the question thought the person asking was trying to print a saved document, but that wasn't the case.

I tried to attach screen prints, but my laptop is having issues & isn't saving them for some odd reason, yet I can see them in the "recents" in Microsoft Word. I save them again, but the same thing. It isn't in the folder when I click "browse" on "Add images" below.

What else can I do? it's such a pain to have to go to Chrome every time I want to print something. Thanks

I have checked and I am running the latest version of Firefox Something has changed. When I go to a website I regularly use to view information a pop up window has to open. For a long using this site opening pop up windows has not been a problem after I allowed the site to open pop up windows. Now when I use the site to view this information Firefox blocks the pop up and in the options presented to me I have to choose show the requested pop up window. The choice to allow pop ups from this site is shown but I cannot click on it. When I check the list of allowed sites for pop ups this site is shown

I like using the address bar to search, but when I start typing an address I don't want the first thing between what I'm typing and the actual url that I can quick select to be 6 "search suggestions". Going into about:config and setting keyword.enabled false removes those search suggestions but it also stops the address bar search from working. Is there a setting that I can use to set the number of displayed suggestions to 0?

Hi,

I want to backup my profile, so I followed the instructions on [Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles]

It says that I should copy the xxxxxxxx.default folder, but I can see 2 folders in the mentioned location.

  1. bxx3v8u9.default-release
  2. yfefhd4p.default

The first folder, bxx3v8u9.default-release, contains many files and sub folders, while the second folder, yfefhd4p.default, contains only 1 file - times.json

According to the article, I should backup xxxxxxxx.default folder, which is the yfefhd4p.default in my case. But, in the same article, under Restoring to a different location, it says Copy the entire contents of the profile folder backup, such as the handlers.json file, prefs.js file, bookmarkbackups folder, etc.

So, do I need to backup/restore both folders?

Hello, I am a keyboard user. I am wondering if there is a way to prevent the bookmarks menu from auto-closing after I open a bookmark in a new tab?

I have already tried setting "browser.bookmarks.openInTabClosesMenu" to FALSE, but this seems to only work for mouse-users, who can then ctrl+click a bookmark and it will open in a new tab while leaving the menu open where it was.

Is there an equivalent setting for keyboard users? So you can press ctrl+enter on a bookmark with similar results? Or perhaps a different key combination other than ctrl+enter, for which the bookmarks menu won't auto-close?

Thanks.

Using this PDF as an example, open it in FF and search for regional development (one space). It finds no hits when I do this.

If I search for regional development (two spaces), it finds one hit.

If I search for regional development (three spaces), it finds one hit.

If I open the PDF in Chrome or in Adobe Reader and search for regional development (one space), it finds two hits, treating the intervening spaces as one space.

I think FF should work like Adobe Reader and Chrome in this regard.

Every time we start the controller Firefox throws a warning the site is dangerous and should be visited even though it's pointing to an internal address and port. We have to go to advanced and select ignore to gain access. Is there any way to disable this warning so it doesn't pop up every time?

Hello,

When I try to play a 4K Video on YouTube on Firefox 88.0, it's choppy while the same video on YouTube on Microsoft Edge is smooth. From my understanding is doesn't seem to be related to my internet connection (Optic Fiber Orange / 300 Mbps) otherwise it wouldn't be smooth on Microsoft Edge nor to my hardware.

A strange behavior of Firefox is that when I enter the address of the 4K Video, YouTube on Firefox doesn't automaticaly detect the 4K quality. Its auto-detection don't go above HD (1080p or 1440p) I have to manually change the quality and when I choose 4K it's choppy. The red playing bar is always closed to the grey "download" bar. If after selecting manually 4K quality, I select Auto quality again, YouTube on Firefox downgrade the video quality to 1440p. For the same video on YouTube on Microsoft Edge, when I enter the address of the video, auto-detection automatically goes to 4K and everything is ok. (The grey download bar is always far away the red playing bar)

I don't think my hardware is faulty in term of power.

CPU : Ryzen 5900 GPU : RTX 3080 Screen : Dual Screen with 4K Monitor (XV273K and XB271HK) Windows Version : 19042.928 (20H2) Firefox : 88.0 Graphic Drivers : Geforce Game Ready Driver 466.11

Could you help me to fix this, please?

Thanks,

The website I'm currently having the issue with is https://sandbox.eth.build/ , but I've had the issue with other sites too, and it's often debilitating to some extremity

Unless it's something strange that's unique to me, and if you are using the most recent Firefox Desktop version (88.0 (64-bit)) for Windows 10, you should see the issue that I'm having with the subject website:

Currently, the website uses the scrolling input to zoom in and out of the workspace, and would not be needed to scroll up and down the webpage, except for an extremely long, blank, vertical abyss beneath the workspace that has no reason to exist. That in itself is a problem, but it wouldn't be worth it to me to bother with visiting this forum and creating a post about it, if that was to be the only problem. You would only accidentally scroll down instead of out if your cursor was hovering over some part of the page or workspace that would otherwise give a null response to scrollwheel input, so it's not really too frustrating if you can just make a habit of being conscious of where your mouse is while scrolling.

The problem, as I hope you'll be able to see from my uploaded images, is the scrollbar, which overlaps the text from the dropdown menu on the right, in addition to causing half of the text at the bottom to be covered due to pushing the workspace's vertical toolbar further out than it's meant to be.

Hello!

Every so often I accidentally trigger what looks like an input field of some kind.

I have managed to reproduce this ( WinKey + / ) but still have no idea what it is.

Can anyone tell me what this is, or what it's used for? I've attached a couple of image files; one of them is a closeup.

Perhaps it's an add-on that's doing this...

Thanks and have a great day!

For about..hmm... I'm not sure how long. At least a couple months, Firefox has been acting very strange. Before christmas I did a reset on firefox to clear up some issues. I don't run very many add-ons. I use moderator toolbox for reddit, ublock origin, and a "view image" add-on to add the "view image" option back into google images.

That's it.

I've had all of those for much longer than this problem has existed.

I checked browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory and it's set to false.

I have 32 gb of ram and my ram is nowhere near being fully used.

What I'm seeing is that if I have 4 or 5 tabs open, going back to a reddit or youtube tab that I always have open results in that tab being unloaded and having to wait while it reloads the tab.

I also notice from time to time that middle clicking something to open a link in a new tab results in the browser jamming up from anywhere from 1-3 seconds.

Used Firefox for years and never seen any kind of issue like this before. I used to be able to easily open 20-30 tabs if I was going through google search results to try and find some information and never had any problem.

Hello all. Why has FireFox been degrading lately? What's going on? What happens to the only browser on the planet? Why has the new design lost icons and does not allow you to use the thin strip of the bar? Where did the page view button go and why you should follow it into the general menu under the headline of the window or open it on hot keys? Especially what happens with DoH, where did the set-up network.trr.bootstrapAddress in about:config disappear? I kept hoping that the white lights would be fixed when I started and opened the new tab, but it still remains, do I still have WaterFox to continue using or what? Which by the way for some reason is further optimized under the various instructions of the processor unlike the original, which gives a great performance when using a decent set of extensions with a large blocklist of the ad blocker.
