Hi All,

My web pages have 4 basic sections, Header, Menu, Content and Footer. In the print media query position static is used. I understand that should make them print in order. All browser had this messed up for many years but I'm sure Firefox had this fixed for awhile. In version 82.0.3 this is messed up again, footer prints at the top of 1st page.

Is this a printing bug? Or, do I misunderstand position static?

Why can't it print as shown on screen, What you see is what you get?


Thank you for any help,

Charles

Hi

I have set Enhanced Tracking Protection to Strict. Some sites may throw you out if you select "I do not accept" (cookies). Some sites make a statement along the lines "By using our service you are deemed to have accepted cookies". If in the former case I select "accept" or in the latter continue to use the site, would that override the Firefox "Strict" setting or would the Firefox Strict setting still block cookies etc?

My apologies if this is already answered elsewhere. I have looked at the help pages but much of this stuff is over my head.

I recently purchased a new laptop. Wanting to have the same tabs, history and saved logins as my desktop, I wanted to sync my desktop Firefox account with the new laptop. Both are windows 10 and up to date version of Firefox. When attempt to sign in to Firefox on the laptop, I get an "Incorrect password" message. I'm using the same email on both computers (only have 1 email anyway) and have had the account and used Firefox for years. Anyone have an idea of what is going on? TIA!

browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick=true to false and back to true again) That did not work this time around.

Problem arose on my Win10 machine when left on overnight for Win upgrade, though the mouse driver seems to be a generic MS one from 2006. Have tried loading Logitech Options and selecting the required radio button for middle click/new tab but no luck.

Firefox takes over 30 seconds to load a tab that I've already opened and seen before.

I mean tabs that have already displayed some content, I switch to a tab, then go back to the tab I was previously on, and it takes over 30 seconds to load, sometimes over 3 minutes. This is making firefox unusable.

And because it doesn't happen all the time, it's not very reproducible for me, but it happens often. Is there a way to fix this?

I created a 2nd profile for use at work. Initially my new profile came up with my personal bookmarks toolbar - which I use a lot. I assumed (bad idea) this was a copy and that I could edit it and modify it for work. It turned out that I was changing bookmarks toolbar for both profiles. I was hoping to use two different bookmarks toolbars one for each profile.

If my assumption was correct and I should be able to have independent profiles where did I go wrong?

Hi, I recently updated to FF 83.0 and if I open Youtube then play a video my RAM usage sits around 900mb.

If I minimize Firefox or open a new tab, the tab with YouTube playing will start climbing in RAM usage. It will go up to 7.5 GB RAM used and it won't free it up.

I downgraded to FF 82.0.2 and it goes away with same addons. It will sit around the 900mb in this version like it always used to. This only started with the release of FF 83.0

I want to use the new FF version for security, but not being able to play any YouTube videos is bad.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Dear folks-- I am working on several large, complicated research projects with a lot of moving parts and many technical aspects that I barely understand. When I raise a question, I normally open a bunch of tabs to papers, stackexchange sites, etc. I usually don’t end up with an unambiguous answer in a single session. I close the tabs that appear not to be useful, and leave the others open. So open tabs represent unfinished tasks to which I expect to return. Every time I try to close a bunch of tabs, I find unfinished tasks that still require research. I pretty much always end up creating more tabs than I close. And at some point it becomes easier to just search again than to find the open tabs I remember. I have tried to use open windows as sort of like thematic groups, with a little success. I work with three big monitors, and it is normal for me to have four or five Firefox windows open, each with its own tab set (all this under MS-Windows 10).

I just accidentally hit close and was asked if I was sure I wanted to close 4643 tabs. Yikes!

This isn’t getting out of hand, it's already out of hand. However, my tabs represent a summary and history of about six years of research. I want to keep them. But I don’t want to keep them like this.

I see that there are tab management capabilities built into Firefox that I have not been using. I also see that there are multiple extensions that offer additional capabilities. However I am more afraid than probably makes sense of adopting a solution that I do not fully understand, and either losing my tabs through inadvertence, or spending weeks organizing them under a new system only to discover that it lacks some crucial capability that I didn’t think to check for.

So I throw myself on the mercy of you, the wonderful Firefox help team, both volunteer and professional. I have tried to imagine a system that would let me organize my 4000+tabs with a sane amount of time and effort. I have produced a list of features that I think would let me do that. I would like to know if I can do all these things, either with native Firefox, or with Firefox and at most one additional add-on extension. Please forgive me if I am not using the proper terminology. I’ll try to be as clear as I can about the capabilities I am looking for.

1. Select multiple tabs at once and assign them to a new or existing tab group. 2. Name a group, have the name be visible in the tab bar, and assign a distinctive appearance to all the tabs in that group (maybe by color). 3. Collapse a group to one tab and reopen the tab to the group quickly and easily. 4. Save and close a tab group, and reopen it from some menu of saved tab groups. Save and close should eliminate the resource demand of the closed tab group. Collapse need not.

I could live with (4) without (3), provided the menu of saved groups has good visual design to remind me of what is there.

5. Convert an open window to a single tab group (if it is not already subdivided into groups). 6A. Name and save a window containing multiple tab groups. Close a single window. Open a closed named window, recreating the tab groups it contained. 6B. Alternatively, allow grouping tab groups into supergroups, name and save the supergroup, close and open supergroups, and convert a window containing tab groups into a supergroup. 7. Open any saved group in any open window. 8. All the instances of saving previously described should survive computer crashes, closure of an individual window, and closure of Firefox. Maybe sync to some cloud location? It is OK if closure of Firefox or a Firefox window throws away the tabs provided you get a warning and an opportunity to save, or provided that tab groups are periodically autosaved by default.

I really want something like all the capabilities described above, though I would accept equivalent functionality arranged in different categories than I have used. Here are three more that I regard as nice-to-have rather than must-have: 9. Sync my tabs with my back-up computer, another MS-Windows box with a lot of RAM. 10. Sync my tabs with my Android phone and tablet. 11. Multiple supergroup grouping layers.

I know I’m asking for a lot, but I really do think this is roughly the feature set required to maintain a large collection of tabs and tab groups across multiple Firefox windows. So I hope and believe that time invested in answering this question would be helpful to others similarly (if less extremely) situated, and perhaps to tab management extension designers as well.

Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi. I recently reinstalled Windows 10, and so, reinstalled Firefox. I had a HTML bookmark file which I had exported from my Firefox before. It is a 3MB file containing over 200 bookmarks organized into folders. When I import it, nothing happens! Only about 10 of the bookmarks (last added bookmarks I guess) are added to the bookmarks menu. So there is two major problems: 1. I want all of my bookmarks imported. 2. I want them in the "folders" the way I categorized them before, NOT just a few links scattered in the bookmarks menu! that's absolutely useless.

This will be a huge time-consuming task to add and organize 200 bookmarks again manually. If Firefox can't solve this, I will definitely migrate to Chrome.

I posted this problem back when v.80.0 was out. It was later fixed, but now it's back.

Loading an external bookmark as the default start page in v.83.0 and using it as the default bookmark (file:///C:/Mine/Testing/BOOKMARK.HTM) creates an error.

The error is that clicking on any url in the bookmark to visit and then clicking the top left arrow to return will always bring you to the top of the bookmark. It used to bring you back to the same location on the bookmark. Now, it brings you back to the top of the bookmark. Thus making it necessary to scroll back down to the location (url) you just visited. Really annoying to have to keep do this in order to return to your original location in the bookmark.

Hope someone can help again.
