Whenever I try to download anything, it automatically fails. The problem just started recently and I don't know what could have caused it because I haven't done anything that could affect downloads to my knowledge. Things I've already tried are

  • Reinstalling firefox (including full uninstall via "Revo Uninstaller"
  • Updating firefox to the latest version (127)
  • Disabled all firewalls
  • Chose the save location
  • Disabled all parental controls in windows
  • Chose the "don't enable HTTPS mode" (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1414064)
  • Tried firefox & windows safe mode (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1442742)
  • Chose a different save location inside my computer (a folder other than downloads)
  • Cleared download history
  • Ran a chkdsk on windows

The thing is that everthing else of firefox works (browsing the web, watching videos, etc), it's only the downloads. It's also not a computer problem I think because I can download on other browsers (such as chrome and pale moon). Any help asap is appreciated.

I was told eventually after clearing cookies and site data and refreshing the webpage that it doesn't work properly with Firefox and that I needed to use Google Chrome or Edge.

Can this be fixed or not?

Hi,

I have an issue with color profiles that I'd like some help with. For my setup, I'm using a thinkpad with a wide gamut display running in fedora.

The issue is that an image exported from Darktable looks overly saturated in Firefox. I found I was able to fix this by specifying the color profile using the flag `gfx.color_management.display_profile`. However that profile is the OS default, and according to Firefox it should've been picked up when querying the OS.

How can I see what icc/color profile Firefox is using? Alternatively, what method is Firefox using to query the OS for its default profile? Thank you.

Printing Double sided

I am extremely frustrated with Firefox and it’s printing. This has been going on for quite some time. You’ve been playing around with what was a good and functional printer interface to one that is now a pice of junk! I have been using Mozilla since it was Netscape 2.0

I am running firefox Ver 115.3.1 esr 64 bit on a Dell Desktop running Win 7. In the past I go to a print preview and see how the print out would look on the page. I could also control, my printer functions, like color or black and white, and the quality of the printout.

Today my wife (not real computer savy) started printing several PDF files for compilation into a book/user help package. After she had printed out several articles and well over 20 pages she mentioned to me that the printer wasn’t printing correctly. I asked her what she ment. She showed me. She was printing double sided (to conserve paper). After she went to the printer and looked at the printout they were all wrong. The front side was fine, but the back side was upside down. So when she would put them in a binder, should could the 1st page fine, then flip the page, and you’d have to turn the binder over to read the 2nd page, then turn the binder around again to read the 3rd page.

This isn’t my idea of double sided. It would be fine if I was using a flip chart but not in a binder. So now I’m sitting on over 20 pages of scrap, not to mention how much ink I wasted at about $50/Black cartridge.

I sit down and try to see what she’d done. So I bring up a document, and want to print ONLY page 1 & 2 doublesided so I limit my waste of paper and ink. Sure enough it prints the backside upside down. So I change from flipping long side to flipping short side and try again. Same problem, 2nd page is upside down. I also notice that there is NO print preview, and I can no longer have access to “Printing Preferences” which allow me to change from black & white to color and vise versa, set the quality of the printout. All I can control is Black & White vs. Color, what pages I want to print and portrait & landscape.

I go over to my other desktop running Win 11 and Firefox V 119.0 (64 bit) and try printing double sided. It gives me the same options as Ver 115.3.1 esr 64 bit, AND it gives me a preview screen. So I select double sided printing and it prints the 2nd page upside down. UNSAT!

I’m in this fix because sometime in the past I did an update and you had changed the printer interface. I don’t know when it was changed, maybe before COVID. But it sure hasn’t helped me. So far I’m out over 20 pages of paper, don’t know how much printer ink, and over 3 hours in trying to figure out what’s giong on, then trying to get help, and then having you web sit drop the page I was working on so I lost this posting. Then I got smart and did it in my word processor. All in all a really frustrating day!!

Hope someone has some ideas.

I tried waiting a couple of days and attempting a login again. I also tried turning off my VPN, using a new tab, refreshing the site and restarting my laptop. I do not get this message when I use Safari to login, but I want to use Firefox.

Thanks for your help in fixing this problem.

I have streamed TennisTV in the past no problem but now it stutters and task manager shows CPU 100%. It also shows Firefox running 2 processes which consume CPU and accounts for the 100%. So I closed one of the processes (the one using least memory) and it solved the problem. So how can I stop this second process from starting, it seems to consume CPU without actually doing anything?

I am running a dual monitor setup. My primary monitor's resolution is 3440x1440, and my secondary is 3840x2160.


The text on my Firefox toolbars and menus looks very clear on my secondary monitor (3840x2160), it looks as I would expect it to; however, on my primary monitor (3440x1440) it's smaller which makes it pixelated meaning it's much less clear. I've been using Firefox for about an hour and I'm already bugged enough to post here.


Due to the different resolutions I need to keep the layout.css.devPixelsPerPx in about:config to the default -1.0 so the windows scale as per my Windows 11 settings.

Sorry, not sure where to put it for the "topic".

Tried this link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recover-user-data-missing-after-firefox-update

I see TWO profiles listed.

As the current one isn't what I want I try the second one "launch in new browser" - as said in the notes.

All that does is throw me back to the "welcome to Firefox" page.

No, it isn't the end of the world, but I had a few open windows/tabs. (By comparison to this machine which has A LOT of windows and tabs open)

They were useful/used/needed stuff.

It is a DIFFERENT MACHINE to this one. I haven't logged in here from the OTHER machine - may in the future if required/asked.

I'll try to leave well enough alone for now, but I do need that machine and this is a huge bump in the usual smooth flow of things.

BTW - just mentioning. MANY sites showed/suggested how to restore previous sessions but they all point to the HISTORY menu and then show RESTORE OLD SESSIONS.

Doesn't exist on either of my machines.

No data shared as this is NOT the machine with the problem.

Hi!

I'm confused by the latest upgrade of Firefox (Version 127.0). It gave me the option to create a new profile or Exit when starting it. So eventually I went for creating a new profile and now my old one seems lost. This is not what I wanted.

When using my shortcut on the taskbar, which I've used for years, it suddenly complained I was using an old version of Firefox. This has not happened for me in decades. I've lived with the Firefox installation on this computer for a very long time and it has smoothly upgraded in the background until now. So what is going on now with this upgrade? Is it a major new version of Firefox that doesn't migrate a current profile?

Good day!

After the last firefox update, there was a change in the way screenshots are saved. Specifically, the file names are the same, only for some pages they create them uniquely as it was before. I am sending an example of a name (Screenshot 2024-06-17 a[...]) that is the same for different screenshots and therefore I always have to rename it. Before the update, this never happened, each screenshot had a unique file name, so it was saved without the need to enter a file name.

I use this feature very often and i find it very annoying to create file name and it is very impractical and time consuming. Can it be set somewhere? Or what should I do. I really like this function of firefox and I don't use another browser because of it. I don't even plan to, because I think it's the best browser and has a lot of great features. This is one of them and I'm really disappointed that it got worse with the update.

Hello! Since as of last update to 127.0 (64-bit, ARM-version) Firefox looks like the attatched photos. White spaces all over which makes Firefox impossible to use. This only occurs on my Surface pro X though so a problem with the ARM-version?

So far I've tried switching to light theme, a refresh, deleting the entire Mozilla folder in APPDATA and a reinstall (using Revo uninstaller first) of Firefox but it still looks the same...

Is there anything more I can try or is this just my life now?
