I see that someone has changed the 'Print' feature. Previously, when I wanted to print something from a website, the print feature gave me the option of 'simplifying the page', which reduced the number of pages to be printed significantly. I have tried printing out 2 pieces of information recently and could not find the 'Simplify page' feature. Has this been removed; and, if so, why?

I have no idea how it started or why, but in the past couple days anytime I leave my cursor over a paragraph or chunk of text on a website, a black box appears where my cursor is with the text in it in white. If there is a lot of text, there's a sidebar to scroll down in the box. This disappears as soon as I move my cursor, but reappears as soon as I set it near some more text. I assume this is some kind of accessibility or reading feature, but I have no idea how I turned it or how to get rid of it. I've looked online and in my setting and had no luck getting rid of it. Any help would be appreciated!

Hello,

this knowledge base article (Remove the Other Bookmarks folder from the Bookmarks Toolbar) claims that you can display the Other Bookmarks folder on the toolbar since Firefox 85 but it seems to be a lie.

In the screenshots down below, you can see my current settings. The Other Bookmarks folder is missing although my settings are correct.

How can I display the Other Bookmarks folder on the toolbar in Firefox? Thanks for your help!

Suppose I'm reviewing financial documents in PDF from my broken in Firefox. They include highly sensitive personal information and when I'm done looking at them I want to close that PDF view tab and know the data's not hanging around in some temporary file store.

Other than purging my browsing history every time I do this, is there a setting for this?

So, I was trying to head to Bing for reasons I will not disclose due to embarrassment. So I went to open it from google and was given the Error:

 ''''''''The page isn’t redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.''''''''

So I cleared cookies and site data, nothing still got the error. I tried checking my PC for malware as stupid as it sounds, I just didn't wanna be asked to do it. Spic and Span. I even checked my protection settings which FOR SOME REASON turned themselves back on. I turned those off and still, no dice.

Any help would be appreciated

When I visit "elofootball.com" with Firefox, "Atlético" is shown as "Atl�tico". When the page is not yet completely loaded Atlético is shown correctly for a brief moment (first screenshot without country flags). After the flags are displayed "Atlético" becomes "Atl�tico" (second screenshot with country flags). So it doesn't seem like the characters themselves aren't supported by the browser because Firefox can display them, just not once the flags are displayed as well.

Edge and Chrome do not have this problem, they just show the page like you'd expect without the � in the place of characters with accents. Any idea what might be causing this and can it be fixed?

I am older and use the zoom function on many web pages. After this last update the Zoom function seems to be broken. I Zoom to 133% for a more comfortable read on a news site (Guardian)... go into the article and have to zoom again. Go back to the home page and it is fine until it finishes reloading and it snaps back to original size. Have to zoom again. None of these zoom setting remain consistantly. This has only become an issue since I restarted Firefox to install the last update.

Hi. Yesterday, I browsed thru my Firefox and/or GMail settings, and removed headers and footers from my printed copies of emails and web pages. Which is fine. However, at the same time I must have mistakenly changed a setting so that my print-ready version of an email or web page always displays in B & W, not in color. Although it will print in color, depending on how I have my HP printer set. How can I change that back so the print-ready Print Preview copy displays pics, etc. in color? I forgot what I did. Aarrgh! Please help! Thanks. John Darin
