This seems to be a new "feature" in a recent upgrade (90+?). It is a pain, particularly on a media PC as it requires using a keyboard.

How to turn this off and go back to the old behavior?

Thanks

Is there anyway to set my own zoom levels, like we used to be able to, you know, like 10 years ago?

I used to have my own zoom levels that went up 10% all the way to 300%, then started 25% intervals.

For example, my levels from 100% to 200% looked like this: 100%, 110%, 120%, 130%, 140%, 150%, 160%, 170%, 180%, 190%, 200%.

So, is there any way to do this now?

Previously inspecting the page info (Ctrl + I) and going to the media tab, I could select an image and download it in its original file size. This has changed to where the image is now downsized, even when opening the direct link in a new tab. The image comes out squished and distorted.

Is there a fix for this? I've tried clearing all cookies & cache which has worked in the past but not anymore.

Okay, so just as I have stated in the subject, this is my direct experience at this time. I've found on the forum people having trouble saving .html, but those were other issues unrelated to Firefox. I cannot find specific reports relating to my issue. To those, if you see this, who saved your web pages to .html (only or complete), did you open those files to check that you could read them? The unreliability of browsers in the past leads me to distrust this expectation that saved data is done and preserved without checking/validating.

Here is what I did. I saved a page (and for sake of accuracy and precision, it was search results from duckduckgo.com) to an .htm file. (Again, for sake of accuracy, I'll insert here that Windows Save As dialog box provides the "Save as type:" options list, which are: "Text Files", "Web Page, complete", and "Web Page, HTML only".) I chose "Web Page, HTML only"; now, while it says "HTML", Firefox creates the default extension of ".htm", so this is the extension used; and I simply used the default filename, no changes. Then, I simply went to my "Recent Items" menu in Start menu and opened the just saved file. It opens to a blank page, except for a very small text box with my search query in it and two little tiny buttons next to it; the content of the page is not displayed. (And, after post analysis, the file size was 7kb, which indicates that it did not really save all the data of the page content.) I then tried opening the file on a different computer with Firefox - same result. I also opened the same file with Chrome - same result. At least there is consistency here. Therefore, the conclusion must be that Firefox is not saving correctly.

There is no help to be given in this case, as I have done nothing wrong. I have done exactly as instructed by and to others in other forum posts and as described in other help pages on how to save web pages to a file. Everyone talks about the actions of how to do; but not about the results of reading saved output.

So, I make the post in hopes that this get to the developers to fix this problem. If this does not happen on all computers or in all situations (for all web pages) ... well, I think it still lies with Mozilla to fix it, because here is one case where it positively does not work! If my situation is unique, I do not know why ... and if it works for others (to save from duckduckgo) then I don't know why ... again, not for me to figure out; just take it as fact, this action of saving web pages in Firefox does not always work.

Thanks.

PS - I'm using SingleFile as an alternative work around (but I don't see why the "Save As" should not have worked perfectly for all of web browser history).

I have two problems with Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit).

1. Sometimes the program stops responding; sometimes it restarts on its own but sometimes I have to close it.

2. Sometimes when I switch from Firefox to another open program Firefox closes on its own.

Thanks.

Since yesterday's update on my Windows 7, today I first got error messages on pages I usually visit, my home page and the Google signin page among my Favorites. The browser crashed when I tried to bring up Settings. Subsequently I could not open it again. I just shut down that computer in case repowering it solves the problem later. This is Mac Catalina. Firefox just updated here. I hope on this computer the problem does not surface.

Firefox for Windows make major change in Toolbar in version 89 upgrade: New in version 89: Say hello to a fresh new Firefox, designed to get you where you want to go even faster. We’ve redesigned and modernized the core experience to be cleaner, more inviting, and easier to use. Beginning in 89, you’ll notice a number of changes, including: Simplified browser chrome and toolbar: Less frequently used items removed to focus on the most important navigation items. How do I avoid Firefox deleting lesser used links in my Toolbar? They are there for a reason.
