Hi, Firefox is not opening 192.168.8.1 since 2 days ago. I have changed service providers, but now I cannot access my MIFI router's admin page. The little spinning wheel goes on forever, til I get an error message "The server at 192.168.8.1 is taking too long to respond and has timed out". No matter how many times I try, or in safe mode, I cannot connect. As I am changing service providers, I need to access the router to administrate the new simcard.

I hope someone can help? Thank you!

Hey, I want to make the UI slightly larger; I have found that modifying layout.css.devPixelsPerPx in about:config works the way I need it to. However, when using multiple screens with different resolutions, the scaling no longer appears consistent between those screens. That would make sense (since it's a per-pixel configuration), but I couldn't any configuration option that only acts as a modifier for the standard scaling mechanism. I'm using macOS (10.15.7), Firefox 88.0. Attaching a screenshot taken from both screens together (not sure how macOS handles the difference in resolution when handling screenshots, there's definitely some magic going on with macOS screenshots in general; either way, it shows the problem really well).

Ever since you last changed Preview, it takes FOREVER for the darn page to load (be seen in Preview) and then FOREVER more to print. Half the time my doc doesn't even show up the first time Preview loads and I have to repeat it. The only work-around I've found is to open my doc in Safari and then print - which is insane. What's wrong with Firefox??

Firefox has not been saving my passwords and every time I open it, it opens 2 tabs welcoming me to Firefox. This has been happening for about 2 months. I'll save something and then the next time I open the browser, it acts like it's the first time. I do have an "Old Firefox Data" folder but when I go to the profile section it shows a million profiles and I'm not sure how to sync my old stuff and have Firefox actually remember it.

Despite what all the articles say, I much prefer reading on my desktop to my phone, so I find it peculiar that the Firefox reading list I've got going on iOS is nowhere to be found on desktop. Seems like plenty of people have asked about this in the past. Would really love this feature to be added soon!

I just sent an e-mail to someone at a company that handles my finances and I immediately got an ad in my Yahoo mail from a company called BeenVerified asking if I wanted to know more information about the person I sent the e-mail to. This is very unsettling. I don't know if it is really related to Firefox, or Yahoo Mail, or the fact that I had an account with BeenVerified in the recent past which I cancelled sometime back.

Is there a possibility that the security settings within Firefox can be changed to stop such a thing?

Thank you for your time!!!

I keep seeing this question around and am wondering if anyone has had any luck? I tried an add-on, but that didn't work. All the other stuff (script, etc.) is beyond my comprehension. Will Firefox ever add this feature? Or, would someone be willing to do a step-by-step?

In recent times, after I've been browsing for about 20 or 30 minutes, Firefox becomes very very slow to respond. Simultaneously it coincides with a similar slowdown over the entire computer - in finder and with other open programs. If I close Firefox (which takes several minutes to complete) the slowness of finder and the open programs disappears. The slowness never happens unless Firefox is open. I've tried Chrome and haven't had the same issue.

What might be causing this delayed slowness and how do I solve it?

Hi, I have not been able to edit / add to my bookmarks for some time. When I go into the Restore section it contains several dates and various bookmark numbers (alot of bookmarks are missing). When I went to restore to a previous date that had all bookmarks I got a message that it was 'Unable to process the back up file' and I have lost all of my bookmarks. In addition, I am transferring from an old iMac to a new one possibly via a Time Capsule back up and have concerns the whatever the problem is with Firefox it will automatically replicate to the new computer?
