That download progress icon on the upper right used to always work and lately it has stopped. I have version 84.0.2 for Ubuntu Linux. I click on it and nothing happens. I like to check the speed to see if maybe I should switch to a different VPN server or not.

Firefox recently - now seeing ver. 84.0.02 in Jan 2021 - when trying to print a page in Firefox Browser is really poor and very difficult to use. What stupid programmer or Mozilla exec decided to take away the option to easily re-size (or "simplify pages") and then easily select pages which pages to print? Stupid decision - very stupid. Makes me decide to change from Firefox and go elsewhere for a browser!!! NOW I have to, when I print, go through an extra step of selecting ":Print using the system dialog..." to easily select double sided printing and select only desired pages. AND I STILL CANNOT RECONFIGURE THE ZOOM TO REDUCE AMOUNT OF PAPER USED!. Really, really a bad decision. Change back...or tell me how to get rid if this new Print Option Menu and go back or I just quit Firefox....quit Mozilla. (OK - I just went exploring and fond 'size adjustment' and 'print on two sides' under the options. Still pretty shitty and I am so pissed off by now, I am changing my primary/default browser and taking Firefox off my desktop, iPhone, iPad and laptop. So no reply is needed. Just pass this on to Mozilla and let them see what such unannounced changes does to their customer base. Stay safe...2021 is not looking any better than the last shitty year.

I've been using new fonts to customize my firefox, but I found that the fonts I installed won't show up in the dropdown menu in preferences, I have to create a new profile to let the new ones do.

I don't want to change my profiles from time to time, so I turned to userContent.css, but I found it either cannot cover enough contents, or cover too much, causing some icons to break.

So the only way to change font for me is to find a way to let the newly installed fonts to show up properly in my current profile, but no matter I restart my browser or my computer they don't. The fonts I have must be read at the time I create a profile, and I guess the list is stored in either somewhere in my profile or under the firefox program folder.

I made every effort to search for it but failed, all I know now is it's not in any text file under profile folder, I wonder if anyone can help me with locating the list of fonts. My firefox version is 84.0.2 on MacOS Catalina 10.15.7.

I've posted the following in the MS Office Forum:

In the Word desktop app I used "-->", which Word autoconverts to a nice arrow. When viewing the document in the browser version of Word it gets mangled and shows up as a "à" symbol. Note: This happens on the same computer! My browser is Firefox (84.0.2). When using Edge or Chrome the arrows are displayed properly.

And got the following answer:

This appears to be a bug in Firefox. The two characters have the same Unicode value, 00E0, but the arrow is in the Wingdings font while the à is displayed in most non-symbol fonts. Although the font box on the ribbon in Word Online says the font of the character is Wingdings, Firefox fails to show it in that font.

Given that both Edge and Chrome seem to be able to display the document correctly, it seems to me that this is a Firefox bug?

I am running Firefox Version 84.0.1 on Windows 10 1909.

Whenever I attempt to use a camera in Firefox, it defaults to one and does not allow you to select any others in the list. I have two other camera devices on this computer, but neither of them are ever listed.

I use OBS as a video mixer and then Voicemeeter as an audio mixer. Firefox has no trouble selecting between the 8 audio input devices on this computer, so I'm not sure why video would be any different.

I need Firefox to use OBS's virtual camera for school and work, but it always defaults to Epoccam now. It used to default to my NDI Virtual Input, which I was able to use (but with some issues) to get video out of OBS, it just added an extra hop.

This is more of a note for developers rather than a question, but I don't where to send it.

Without any action from me, this web page appeared in a new tab in Firefox: https://technologyto.com/media-capture.html?v=0.3.7&p=0.3.6&type=update (I was away from the PC when it loaded.)

The extension called "Media Capture" is not intalled in my Firefox. It might have been, a few years ago, as I vaguely remember trying something like it. (It didn't work with encrypted streams, so was no use to me.)

Now "Media Capture" does not exist at addons.mozilla.org, and I didn't find "TechnologyTo" at github.

So it's very odd that something has the power to load that page.

Hello,

I am trying to figure out how to turn on the feature that when I reply to a message, the message is quoted in the reply. I hope that makes sense. This feature was working before but somehow I managed to turn it off and I cannot find a way to turn it back on.

Thank you,

I have hundreds of hours of work in creating filters and now I can’t seem to use them.

I recently change service providers and I now have two accounts under the same name that show up on my Thunderbird mail I edited the name of both of them sa as to differentiate but it appears to make no difference

The one is a Pop3 account which has all my old mai on it an the other is an iMap account which is the new one The new one is recieving mail as it should but I want all the old categories in the Pop3 account without having to recreate several hundred and the Filters that went along with it.

both accounts have the name [REMOVED BY MODERATOR]@shaw.ca but when I tried to change the pop3 to an imap account I could change the name but not the Server Type and the Server Port I changed to 993 but the Default port somehow changed to 995

Hi. Trying to get TB to work. Downloaded all my messages from ATT.net inbox, but only headers came in. Saw where you can tell it to download full message, but it only does it with new messages. This page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/999111 advises deleting all messages and redownloading. But I tried deleting a couple messages on TB, and they ended up permanently deleted on ATT.net. They're not even in the trash.

Also, I have my ATT.net webmail in subfolders. TB is only grabbing the inbox. Is there a way to get it to grab all the subfolders too?

Thanks.
