Suddenly last week my PDFs started printing much smaller than normal. A letter size page prints about 6x9 instead of 8.5 x 11. Today I discovered that the same pages print fine in Chrome. Is there a known issue printing PDF files in Firefox? Is it being worked on? I love the browser and I refuse to use Chrome, but this is a big problem.

I made a mistake and broke my FireFox profile. I made a new profile, then copied 11 files from a backup of my profile into my new profile folder, following these instructions https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile

Most things came right back, that is very nice.

I am not certain if browser cache is disabled, which is necessary to avoid insanity while making changes to websites, which is what I do all the time. My mental defects did not prevent me finding thousands of web pages explaining how to complete this task. However, my mental defects prevented me finding any explanation created since the formation of the internet (I am estimating the internet first formed in 2008, because the dates of the answers I found indicated as such (anything before 2013 is basically the same as 2008 for internet purposes). And so, I am here to beg a moment of your time to help me resolve this risk to my mental health which will be extremely serious if caching does not discontinue its anti-social activities.

LEST YOU THINK I AM HELPLESS I found my way to about:config, entered cache into the search and up came about eighty various cache, assundry and other forms of affiliated/associated items. The list is diverse, but every item on the list has one very special thing in common with all the others, and as a group, they achieve an astonishing feat.

WHAT THESE configs HAVE IN COMMON All eighty configs produce by the procedures above have the letters c-a-c-h-e somewhere within them in that precise sequence, with no intervening or otherwise contrary letterizations.

THEIR COLLECTIVE FEAT They manage to organize themselves to perfection, including among them every single config containing the letters c-a-c-h-e in that exact order. No slackers calling in with covid or excuses of dogs eating their homework, all do their part in the roll call when its taken this way. This kind of character is exemplary and inspiring.

THE PROBLEM I attempted to calculate how many combinations of values these eighty configs can have. I got as far as determining a penny for each combination would amount to more than 400 times the gross product of economic activity since the dawn of recorded history.

STRATEGY Since trying every combination is too time consuming, my goal is to go straight to the correct config adjustment to send the cache away.

HYPOTHESIS Changing the last item on the list, marked 'cache' from TRUE to FALSE will produce the cacheless experience I must achieve in order to not impersonate a Molotov Cocktail.

The attached image shows what I have in mind. I am going ahead with experiements, but my hope is someone with knowledge will help click this thing in the way it should go.

I need to install Firefox NEW on an XP laptop. I need the (newest) old version that will install on the XP downloaded to THIS (Windows 10) computer and "Sneaker-netted" to the XP. Then I presume I will be able to download the NEWEST version that will run under XP and do the upgrade. What I received was indistinguishable from the most current version, when I tried to get 43.0.1. Help?

Hi! Netflix used to work great in Firefox on my Mac OS X 10.11.6 macbook. Now I've been getting an error message saying "Looks like your browser is no longer supported" when trying to play video on Netflix and it won't play. I noticed that it self-updated a couple times over the last few days but these updates did not solve the problem. I'm hoping that this problem can be fixed so that I can keep watching Netflix on Firefox, as I find Chrome and other browsers are very slow and laggy compared to Firefox. Thanks :)

Can Firefox Save As PDF like Chrome? The problem is Firefox uses Microsoft Print to PDF. This doesn't allow the document to be saved in the original size.

Example:

There are thousands of online retailers and their employees that have to print labels every day. Sometimes the label needs to be saved as a PDF instead of physically printing.

  • Microsoft Print to PDF saves it based on the default paper sizes, A4, etc.
  • Shipping labels are generally 4x6
  • Microsoft Print to PDF will save the 4x6 label on Legal Paper size which renders the document useless if it needs to be printed

It would be nice if Firefox has a default Print > Save as PDF feature similar to Chrome instead of relying on Microsoft PDF. The general user doesn't have time to tinker with the settings to add a new paper size.

Curious if anyone else has seen this. Within the last few days I have encountered a problem with images not being displayed. The most recent incident is an HTML-formatted e-mail being displayed in the Comcast web mail interface. If I right-click on the space for the image and select View Image Info, the pop-up also fails to display the image, but if I copy the image location into the address bar of an empty Firefox window and hit Enter, the image displays correctly.

This happens infrequently, and I haven't been able to find anything that connects the occurrences. Nothing that appears related in the web console.

Running Firefox 77.0.1 on Ubuntu 18.04.

FF Browser won't reflect changes made in html file

I am running a web site and just ran into a very disturbing problem. My code won't refresh in firefox browser, but do refresh in Google Chrome.

The thing is, I have added
tags in <body>tag and also added <script>tag in <head> tag.

When I load my page, it still displays the old html. I checked the source file in Chrome and yes, the source file is correct. However, the source file in Firefox still displays the old file(i.e. with no additional divs and script tags). The weird thing is that Network Monitor in Firefox developer tools shows status 200 for the html file, and headers in the details pane shows old info for "last modified file" in response Headers section.

I know refreshing browse setting, clearing cashes, openning the website with private browsing window, or newly reinstalling firefox browser, would solve the problem, but that is not what I want to know.

The difference between Firefox and Google Chrome:

Google Chrome instantly reflects the revised html file just after uploading a molified html file.

Firefox doesn't do that even if I close all tabs and quit firefox then reopen firefox and visit the webpage and repeat this processes multiple times.

My question is, how can I make it refresh the latest html file in users Firefox browsers, without asking users to refresh browser settings. I mean, how can I modify html code, htaccess code or anything to solve that issue?

Any ideas?

I would like to preload / edit saved payment methods in Firefox. I checked the box to save them. I tried to import them from Chrome.

I'm spoiled by Chrome making it so easy to do online payments. All I need is the CVC, Chrome remembers the 16 digit card number and expiration date.

I've been using Firefox a lot more because Chrome is such a memory hog. But when I want to make an online payment, I open Chrome.

If I could just do a work session and load all of my cards into Firefox. I would be happy.
