Preview is opened as default when printing. I prefer to use the system printing. How can I discard Preview? The printing task now takes more than a minute to access the printer. It all started since Preview was introduced as default! Meanwhile Firefox i locked and I can't do anything in Firefox.

I still have v88 of Firefox. I was automatically upgraded a few months back to v90 I think and there was no "file edit view history bookmarks tools and help" at the TOP of my screen like it has been forever! I use my bookmarks from the top of my screen all the time, that's how i get to all my websites. I found it in the side bar (right hand side I think, which is a horrible place for that)

Before I decide to upgrade to v94 (which says is the newest version) is there a way to put the "file edit view history bookmarks tools and help" buttons back at the TOP of the page and not in the stupid hamburger menu thing.

If memory serves me correctly the startup page also didnt have the "most viewed" sites or only have 5/6 and no ability to have 16 options, is that a thing still?

I'm a basic user who hates change when nothing was wrong with how it was before for the past 20 years lol

Thanks for any assistance!

I downloaded the new version, 89.0.2, not realizing how really horrible it is. Since, trying to return to the old version (88.0.1), I've managed to delete my entire firefox directory, and have to reinstall FF from scratch. I've lost all history and bookmarks for the past 10 years. I can get by that. But, how do I set a photo from my pictures library to my FF homepage? Thanks for any relevant responses.

hi. i was debugging my Django_React project in inspect element mode of firefox and that was my first time doing that so i was confused and clicking on some buttons to get to know what to do and outta no where that page crashed. i did rerun my whole project and tried again to connect to it but doesnt work. i checked, the firefox is up to date. i ran firefox in troubleshoot mode and reran the project but still doesnt work and crashes. i think it is not about my hardware or firewall options.

the FIRST REPORT ID that i got is: "bp-cd41341c-37e7-4c5d-9494-f85340211026"

the LAST REPORT ID that i got after the whole project rerun and in troubleshoot mode is: "bp-228837ce-f0d5-4767-981c-46f240211026"

YouTube TV Buffering Problem with Firefox

I have hit what appears to be a "YouTube TV" (vs YouTube) buffering problem. It happens only with Firefox on my PCs. After a few seconds to a minute of playing a TV program or movie, the video/audio stops with a spinning arrow. If I previously had turned on "stats for nerds" to monitor this, I can see when network activity stops and the buffer then eventually gets exhausted.

This does NOT happen when running YouTube TV on my TVs or on my iPhone. Probably more significant, it does NOT happen with YouTube TV under either Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome on these PCs. If I run Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode, i.e., no add-ons, extensions, etc., the problem still exists, so it is not just some rogue add-on, but is related to Firefox itself. The problem appears to be only for "YouTube TV" on Firefox since, for example, videos played from YouTube (vs "YouTube TV") do not have the problem under Firefox.

I tried rebooting my router as well as the PCs. The problem still existed. The PCs are high speed and the internet connection is fiber optic. One of the PCs is connected by Ethernet; the other is wireless. Download/upload speeds are over 900 Mbps on the Ethernet PC. I have not seen slow network indications on anything except this "YouTube TV" with Firefox mixture. Hardware does not seem to be the issue.

Apparently the problem is software. I also tried temporarily disabling my antivirus/firewall software. No change. I'm running Windows 10 version 21H1 and Firefox 88.0.1. I'm new to YouTube TV; although most of my viewing with it has been done on TVs, I don't recall seeing this problem in my PC tests a month or so ago.

Hi,

I'd like to use keyboard media keys (play/pause, prev, next) to control Spotify web player and Youtube but they don't work. The option is enabled. I'm using Firefox 88.0 on Windows 8.1, so according to this article it should be supported. The keys work on other apps. I've tried in troubleshooting mode as well, no luck. Any ideas?

Massive cellphone hacks, root level, allows hacked FF download

Two Oct 2017 microprocessor chipset vulnerabilities have been used on phones manufactured through July 2019, that allow Foreign Bad Actor APT groups to develop cofe, based on reverse engineered Open Source code, to download multiple apps, including browsets, GBoard and other alternative keyboards, and communications apps (Gmail, text and messaging, phone ) applications.

These copy apps run in the OS at startup (using a thumbnail hackede Opera version - but not the expected Opera Mini version for Android), and are oberved as duplicates when clearing app cache, as repeating application responses to a command. They also appear as phantom duplicate app notifications, in Rent Apps List toggles, and hidden apps in hacked desktop Launchers)

The malware payload launcher may also be appended to poorly written apps, from third party app stores, but also from malware originating from Chinese made inexpensive phones with continued 2017 chipset vulnerabilities, eg older chipsets not soft patched or replaced eith hardcoded newer code.

Therefore, we suspect tens of millions of compromised phones are in use. These phones leak small communication pack streams of scavenged user information while the phone is on, regardless of hacked Launcher UI status indicator (off) and through hacked BlueTooth and Nearby Share applications using javascript and Lineux remote toggles, that can activate and use camera and microphones to record user calls and environment.

Perhaps authenticator checks buried in code, could alert users of duplicated browsers, as all other FF privacy protections are nulled by these hijacks.

Firefox 88 - very slow to create print preview

When I try to print from Firefox 88 on my Mac Laptop running OSX 10.12.6 the new print preview window takes a very long time to load the preview before I can print. I could not find a work around.

I tried switching to the Classic print system via (print.tab_modal.enabled - False) Now I don't have the preview to deal with so I can print immediately like I used to. However, if I try to open a PDF in Preview from the Print Dialog window, it takes a very long time to load the preview which it did not do in earlier versions of Firefox.

I am surmising that one of the Firefox updates added the print preview function which doesn't work quite right on my Mac.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Andy

So after 13 years, Mozilla has changed the shortcut for "Copy link" from A to L.

This is an INSANE move! Copying links isn't some obscure power command, it's a basic, everyday function that everyone needs to use. Who doesn't have to copy URL links from time to time?

Moving the key to L makes the shortcut so much more difficult to use now. You're required to move your left hand a long way, and look down at the keys. It takes forever and interrupts the flow of browsing the web. It's stupid. Why not change the key to C? Isn't that logical?

I wish I could give Mozilla feedback about this, but sadly I can't.

Can someone please tell me how to change this back WITHOUT installing an extension. If Mozilla have just suddenly changed this key without even giving users an option to change it back, that is terrible.

Hey there,

for a while now we have problems loading our page https://risofort.press/ in firefox: the header will always load, the body of the main page and sub pages will infrequently load, and after having loaded once it will not reload for a long time (like, weeks). all of this works in other browsers. After contacting our host and trying some stuff like deactivating plugins to see if one them is causing it, I am realizing that perhaps it is the way our theme is loaded by firefox - a similiar issue was resolved here: https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1320526#answer-1381654

However I can't figure out what part of our website is the one that is keeping the main area to be loaded, or become visible, rather.

Any thoughts on this very welcome, thank you! Will also pass this question on to the theme authors.

Thanks in advance, L.

I was trying to re-discover my facebook password. Currently I am automatically logged in on my Firefox browser, and can use my facebook normally. However when I go to Privacy & Security > Saved Logins I cannot see it. I can see several other saved logins that all check out, but not my facebook one.

Running Firefox 88.0, on Ubuntu. Any help is much appreciated.
