Recently firefox has started printing everything in duplex (double sided). The print dialog that pops up when printing has the duplex box unchecked, so should print single sided.

In about:config print.printer_HP_LaserJet_4050_Series_PCL_5.print_duplex is set to 2. If I change this to 0 I get single sided printing for a random small amount of time, but at some point it reverts to 2 and duplex printing.

This does not occur in other browsers.

I screwed up firefox profiles and had to reset everything. Now when I go to Options (about:preferences) the font is so large that it cuts off part of the right-hand side of the pages. I can do ctrl- to decrease the font, but ff doesn't remember it, and since I go to options several times a day, it's a nuisance. Any suggestions?

I recently did a fresh install of Windows. I'm back to Firefox and using Version 81.0.1 (64-bit). I've noticed that my browser will sometimes lag or freeze, and it does it mostly when switching between two tabs - sometimes with just one tab open it will lock up for about 5-10 seconds then go back to working fine. Is there anything I can check to see if something is causing this issue? It's becoming very annoying. I only have three extensions installed, and it was doing it before I added them back.

When I go to that page, what should be the map showing the radar display is blank. I searched online and tried some things, but nothing fixed it. It does work with other browsers.

Hi,

For few days I'm having this overlay on firefox and I can't get rid off it. It annoys me to see it but on top of that the play/pause keys of my keyboard and mouse interfere with firefox. Therefore if I pause Spotify a video on Firefox will play.

Any idea ? =/

Hi. Since the beginning of September, I hit into this strange incident. Eventually, I reinstall my computer in hope to get this fixed. Unfortunately, it didn't. It pops up again after 1 day.

This issue is quite strange, as I've said. When I get into YouTube, the user menu on the upper right corner will go on loading. The menu will never popped up at all. When I refresh the Firefox, this may get fixed in the first hour (it's much less, but I don't have any timing on this), and this will return. Other "interesting loading" may happen, say the "Kaspersky 2021" Add-on.

Other interesting thing is the user menu in YouTube won't complete, even it popped up. Half of it was shown. Normally, we may be able to swap accounts or logoff the account, but that entry wasn't in the menu.

Has everyone hit into this situation before, or is it just me? Any solution? Pls advise, thanks in advance.

I've been using Firefox on all my computers for a long time (Windows 10,) great browser.

However, starting today, specifically on my laptop, it's painfully slow (60 seconds to load Google) and very high CPU usage (over 20%.) It regularly stops responding to mouse and keyboard input. I have to kill it with Task Manager. Everything else on the laptop seems fine. I haven't made any changes I'm aware of that could cause this.

As an example, it took over 2 minutes to load this particular page, then at least another 90 seconds before I could type anything into it. My network connection is fine. IE and Edge work OK.

I've tried a Firefox refresh, no change.

An uninstall and reinstall, no change. I've tried a reinstall with also deleting all the appdata folders (so a clean install, no extensions,) no luck.

I've tried disabling antivirus (Symantec, always suspect) no change.

Unless there's something I can remove in the registry I'm at a loss.

I'm really hoping I don't need to switch to Chrome, or God forbid, Edge.
