I've had all settings in about:preferences#privacy turned off for years, but a new firewall is asking me to allow default-browser-agent.exe to send data.

I'd have thought the program should stop running altogether when all checkmarks in "Firefox Data Collection and Use" are turned off.

Can I view what data is being sent?

I've been using new fonts to customize my firefox, but I found that the fonts I installed won't show up in the dropdown menu in preferences, I have to create a new profile to let the new ones do.

I don't want to change my profiles from time to time, so I turned to userContent.css, but I found it either cannot cover enough contents, or cover too much, causing some icons to break.

So the only way to change font for me is to find a way to let the newly installed fonts to show up properly in my current profile, but no matter I restart my browser or my computer they don't. The fonts I have must be read at the time I create a profile, and I guess the list is stored in either somewhere in my profile or under the firefox program folder.

I made every effort to search for it but failed, all I know now is it's not in any text file under profile folder, I wonder if anyone can help me with locating the list of fonts. My firefox version is 84.0.2 on MacOS Catalina 10.15.7.

Firefox crashing frequently and unexpectedly. I can't discern any pattern to when it happens. I don't know what's triggering it.

I've tried refreshing it, reinstalling it, running under a newly created profile, running under safe mode. The crashing continues despite all of these things.

I need to do the simplest thing. I see a web page I want to get back to later. I bookmark it. Later today or tomorrow or whatever I try to find it. And that is borderline impossible. It's not something I categorize or file away in well defined folders for future reference. I just want to read it later. It it's go e, lost in no particular order in a cast list of bookmarks. All I want is to find these fairly recent bookmarks, read, and delete. Is that simplest of actions not possible?

Why does vers. 78.6.1 insist on double spacing, I have tried different settings and searched for solutions (It is not just when answering a mail) with no luck. More annoying than this is that when answering mail (and sometimes even when I start a new mail), it for some reason likes to change font size to medium, and I have configured it to large (I often have to keep doing this over and over) I have, like with the former problem, searched for solutions for this for hours, and I can see that this has been an ongoing problem, but I will ask again: why cant there be a simple solution to this so that one can choose ONE font, ONE size that are kept ALL the time. I don't need my font to adapt to other fonts that are in the mail that I am answering, quite opposite, I want what I write to always stand out from the font in the mail that I am answering. (I know that I can shift to plain text, as somebody suggested, but then it also changes mail i receive to plain text and removes pictures, layout etc.)

TB 78.6.1 Mac OS 10.11.6. I regularly get situations where TB says "The folder *** cannot be compacted because another operation is in progress. Please try again later." I press "OK", and it says the same thing for another folder. And another. And another. On and on. The only way I can get out of it is by quitting and restarting TB.

I have several accounts. Two POP and one IMAP.

What's going on? This is pretty annoying and also pretty silly. As far as I know, I don't have any other operations going on.

Hi, I found firefox beta the one and only bnowser on Android where I can change the viewport width and thus look at very wide webpages (e.g. scientific) that are designed for laptops. But how can I make a screenshot of such a webpage? That is, not only capture what is actually on the screen in the moment, but the entire webpage. But I really must do this in Firefox Beta, because if I cannot set the viewport width to somet0ing extrawide, then the website will open in a distorted way. I spent a lot of time going through not only the firefox beta menu, but also the settings and the config about page of firefox beta and I am lost. Googling for an hour, I saw that "firifox light" on Android does have a screenshot icon that provides exacly this functionality. Any ideas why this is not there in firefox beta for Android? Or any ideas for a workaround?

Thanks!!

Hi,

Due to some restrictions of features I’ve had to move from Chrome to Firefox at work. I often ship using the DHL Intraship portal. When trying to physically print the waybills they don’t print properly on the paper. They come out in different orientation and sizes than needed. I’m wondering if there’s a way to set the printer settings to the same configuration Chrome has?

Let me explain the differences.

On Chrome:

First off I will select the “Print Selected Documents” button. This opens what I assume is a PDF version of the documents in browser while giving me the option to print. The printer automatically sizes it and between the three pages detects which orientation and size needed. Please see screenshots below. I have censored some of the info.

Print Selected Documents Screen on Chrome: https://ibb.co/gJ6DJdt

PDF open in browser with print option that shows the pages in different orientation: https://ibb.co/Kj9vfJ1 https://ibb.co/7jGNnBS

Next up are the windows and settings in Firefox:

Print Selected Documents screen in Firefox: https://ibb.co/25zVKTQ

After clicking the button I don’t receive any print preview of the PDF and the orientation defaults to portrait instead of a mixture of portrait and landscape: https://ibb.co/MDJCR0W

If anyone knows how I can fix it the advice and help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much!

I have configured FF to block all cookies under "Browser Privacy" the custom setting allows "Choose which trackers and scripts to block. and I selected "all cookies". Knowing that all cookies will be blocked I logged into office 365 and allowed manually cookies through "view page info" I then selected "set cookies" to allow expecting full access to office 365 mail, but this did not occur. What happened is I logged into office 365 and could see the icons and my login name but could not read the mail.

Office 365 gave the message "we couldn't sign you in please try again" yet I could see my log in name and the office 365 icons for mail, calendar etc.. just not the actual data. If I allow cookies in Browser privacy (which i take it allows cookies always) it woks.

I bring this up because it seems like something is missing in cookies that is not represented in FF.What is the difference between browser privacy cookies and allowing it through view page permissions? Can anyone offer an explanation?

Trouble re-installing TB 78.6.1 / 78.0.1 Profile / emails after system restore in Windows 10

Hello,

I have followed the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer, and also tried several variations thereof - all without success.

PROCEDURE:

After each failed attempt, I uninstalled TB. The TB profile folder under %APPDATA% was also removed, and a new clean copy of TB installed, once 78.6.1 and once 78.0.1.

The backup folder was copied

- once via opening TB -> Help -> Troubleshooting Information -> Up three levels to "Thunderbird". It was installed once in TB 78.6.1 via > Help -> Troubleshooting Information -> to the directory shown below, and - once via %APPDATA% > to the directory shown below.

Nothing of the below resulted in the Profile and emails coming up when opening TB:

"Thunderbird" folder:

1. Pasting the saved "Thunderbird" profile backup folder over the newly installed "Thunderbird" destination folder. 2. Emptying the newly installed "Thunderbird" destination folder first, then pasting the saved "Thunderbird" backup files/ folder into it. 3. Merging the contents of the newly installed "Thunderbird" destination folder with the contents from the saved "Thunderbird" backup files/ folder.

"Thunderbird"/ "Profiles" folder:

4. Pasting the saved backup "Profiles" folder over the newly installed destination "Profiles" folder. 5. Emptying the newly installed destination "Profiles" folder first, then pasting the saved "Profiles" backup files/ folder into it. 6. Merging the newly installed destination "Profiles" folder with the saved "Profiles" backup files/ folder.

"Thunderbird"/ "Profiles"/ "... default.release" folder:

7. Pasting the saved backup folder "hpaxv0u8.default-release" over the newly installed "…...default-release" folder (its name changed with each new TB install). 8. Emptying the newly installed destination folder "…..default-release" first, then pasting the saved backup files/ folders from "hpaxv0u8.default-release" into it. 9. Merging the newly installed destination folder "….default-release" with the contents with the "hpaxv0u8.default-release" backup folder.

RESULT:

Each time, the source profile files are copied and visible in the respective newly installed directory.

But on opening TB, the prompt comes back on asking to set up an email account.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1289124?utm_campaign=questions-reply&utm_medium=email&utm_source=notification#answer-1318119 advises to “copy everything from the backup profile folder ... , delete everything from the target profile folder that opened in the pevious steps then paste into the now empty target folder."

When I do that, TB is unable to start up. Error message: "Your Thunderbird profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."

NOTES:

- The two TB versions were downloaded from https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/78.6.1/win64/ and https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/releases/78.0.1/win64/.

- The two TB versions were each installed and removed nine (9) times (as per above). On the same PC as before, where TB had worked just fine: Windows 10, 64-bit.

Wot to do? Many thanks.

Hi,

Ever since a while ago, some images are not showing correctly in Firefox. I must have gotten this issue in the last update(84.0.2) or slightly earlier. I tried resetting it, and used safe mode, but I still get the same issue. I don't know how to fix it at this point, and the only solution I have at the moment is to switch over to Chrome for important times, such as for online exams, but this is not ideal. Does anyone have a clue about what could be wrong, or am I doomed to use alternatives to Firefox during important times/just for viewing certain pictures?

Current Version: 84.0.2 (Auto-Update/Help -> About Firefox) OS: Windows 10

Thank you.
