With "print on both sides" checked, the "backside" of each page is printed inverted top to bottom. I believe this began after the latest update. I'd like to revert to the old, more conventional, and (for me, at least) easier-to-use older system.

Hi, The alternate search shortcuts are an excellent feature. Prior to a recent Firefox update, I was able to enter a search term and click once on one of the alternate search engine icons to perform the search with that engine.

Currently, I need to click the icon, e.g. Wikipedia, and confirm the request by pressing Enter or clicking the new item in the entry in the address bar drop-down, "Search with Wikipedia" (screenshot attached).

Is there an item in the about:config settings to revert this change and perform this search with a single click on the icon?

Thank you.

I had some e-mails sent to junk by mistake but when I click "it's not junk" then open the e-mail and click on "add to safe senders list" this command is ignored as the next time I receive an e-mail from that sender it is again sent to junk. Microsoft tell me it's a browser (i.e. Firefox) issue. Can anyone please help ?

I'm using a Surface Pro 7, running Win10H. Firefox had a brief period when I first installed it where the on screen keyboard would appear and work, that stopped after a few hours and has not worked since. I fiddled with the settings on both Firefox and my surface, though nothing has changed. Un/re-installing did not help, thought it could reset something. Any fixes or advice would be greatly appreciated.

For clarification, the Accessibility Menu on-screen keyboard does work, but the tablet-specific larger keyboard does not function. It does open and type in other applications.

Hello, I recently purchased a SSD and I am using it. I was shocked to see that my SSD's TBW was 800GB in just 2 months whereas I never write any big files and then I realize that Firefox was eating my TBW and I have disabled some features in "about:config".

Those features are: browser.cache.disk.enable = false browser.cache.disk_cache_ssl = false browser.cache.memory.enable = true


But disabling those things did not helped me. I am trying to save my TBW. I want Firefox to never write anything in my SSD. I want to disable cache forever. I want Firefox to store all cache in Memory. I know it will take more internet bandwidth but no problem for me.

Can I tweak these settings in about:config?

browser.cache.disk.capacity = 0 or 1 (Not use if 0 means unlimited or disable in Firefox so I am using 1 and please tell me how what does 0 does) browser.cache.disk.content_type_media_limit = 0 or 1 (Not sure what this is) browser.cache.disk.enable = false browser.cache.disk.free_space_hard_limit = 0 or 1 browser.cache.disk.free_space_soft_limit = 0 or 1 browser.cache.disk.max_chunks_memory_usage = 0 or 1 browser.cache.disk.max_entry_size = 0 or 1 browser.cache.disk.max_priority_chunks_memory_usage = 0 or 1 (Not sure what this is) browser.cache.disk.metadata_memory_limit = 0 or 1 (Not sure what this is) browser.cache.disk.preload_chunk_count = 0 or 1 browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled = false browser.cache.disk_cache_ssl = false browser.cache.offline.capacity = 1 browser.cache.offline.enable = false browser.cache.offline.storage.enable = false

Can I create a new setting like browser.cache.disk.disable = true?

Hello Firefox Community, I updated Firefox yesterday. I am using windows 10 and the directions to pin the tool and title bars is not working. When the cursor is near the top of the screen a tool bar pops up, yet the title and bookmark bars are still missing. I would like all three bar visible at all times. What do I change to pin the bars to the top of my screen? Thank you, Scottie

I put Firefox on 500% zoom one day and since that day its defaulted to 500% zoom when clicking on a video or just clicking into the tab from a different one. I managed to find an add-on that kept the zoom the same when going to new videos but the zoom still defaults to 500% when clicking into the tab. I've tried changing the default zoom to something else then changing it back to 100% and I've tried deleting cookies. It still does it in a private window with no add-ons enabled.

Thanks
