Print Preview 86.0 too small to see. Also other print features now very difficult

My print preview is no longer available, and the new one is too small to see what's on the page. It's useless! Also, simplify page is gone (I understand "Reader View") is the work-around. Also, it's many extra clicks to get to my system print controls to print properly.

Solving the print preview too small would go a long way towards keeping Firefox usable. The other things could certainly use fixing, however.

Thanks in advance! L.

(I have restored the old functionality temporarily with print.tab_modal.enabled preference set to false. Thanks community for showing me to do so! See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1322623 if you want to know how.  However, usually Firefox takes these options away soon.  )

Recently i was watching a long video and i needed screenshots for future notes but whenever i press (Ctrl+Shift+S) a prompt appears all the time asking whether to save 'visible' or 'full page' . Can i somehow make 'visible' default ,so that i don't have to select again and again as i have to take a lot of screenshots and also take the screenshots while the video still running ; i don't want to pause it every time and save a snap ?

So I bought a new computer. Installed Firefox and Thunderbird. Thunderbird will not open links properly in the Firefox browser. I get the following message: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window." However, other links open fine. The browser that is open is working fine. I have gone to the point of refreshing firefox and opening with no extensions, and the same thing happens. I seem to have checked every setting that I have found information online and nothing changes the behavior. One idea was to reinstall Windows but I just bought the computer so that is a silly option as everything else is working just fine and running at a blistering rate.

I updated my iOS to Big Sur, and now many emails on Yahoo are displaying content as gobbledygook. Sometimes it's the subject lines, signatures, and email addresses in emails and the threads of forwarded emails. Other times it's the text on home listings or job ads. This isn't happening on my gmail account, or when I access Yahoo through Safari, nor is it happening on my mobile devices. It's specific to the combination of Yahoo/Firefox/Big Sur. Any idea how to fix or when Mozilla might address this bug in an update?

Many thanks, Erika

Hello,

I am looking at the reason why every time Firefox updates this link opens in a new tab https://www.grabber.website/

No other browser does this. Wondering if I can block that tab from opening when Firefox updates. Considering deleting Firefox altogether if this keeps happening.

How do I edit non address autofill data? When I autofill a form, my 1st name comes up correct but last name is all lower case, when I clear the field the Capitalized version is shown. Next time I use the autofill again the small case version appears. A similar thing happens with email address. An old email address (from a prior account) is displayed, but I cannot find any way to get rid of the old email address nor correct it. Everywhere I look on all your instructions, I cannot find any discussion/instructions on how to change Non Address Autofill data. Pleas help as I am getting tired of having to constantly manually change these fileds every time I use autofill. THANKS!!!

Having a problem with printing since moving to FF 86.0. Print is automatically set up for my Brother MFC-J895W (LAN connection) to print 2-sided and back-to-front, but is printing the 2nd page upside down. I've tried going into about:config and deleting the entry for "print.print", as well as editing the prefs.js and deleting everything that has "print_", but no help.

Does anybody know what app these controls belong to?

| 1.00 | << | - | + | >> | X |

Before I had to reinstall my Win 10 O/S and all my apps these controls appeared in the upper left corner of most of my streaming videos and most YT and saved videos. They allow me to go back or forward 10 seconds and adjust view speed.

After my SSD hard crash I had to reinstall everything, and FireFox was first up, followed by Video Download Helper. Sync restored FF almost completely. But now those controls do not appear in any streaming mode, and only on some YT videos.

I cannot find any reference to those controls in FF or DLH.

I really need to get them working like before so that I can zero in on the best screenshot for my project.

I'm using Mail Merge, but don't want to save copies of all the sent emails in the Sent folder. I uncheck the "Place Copy In:" box under Copies and Folders. When I do this, individual emails I write are not copied to the Sent folder, which is to be expected. However, when I run Mail Merge, it places all the created messages in the Outbox of Local folder, (as expected) and when I select "Send unsent Messages", it sends the messages and copies each to the Sent box of the account used to create them. How do I prevent them from being copied to the Sent box?

Today i turned on firefox running the latest ubuntu platform and had colored squares and dots all over the web pages. If I move the mouse or type the squares colored black, blue, aqua and green move with the mouse or typing all over the display like snow. I have gone over the troubleshooting steps, I have uninstalled and reloaded mozilla firefox. The only way I can stop this is to go to safe mode. I have downloaded two other browsers today and do not have this problem with the other two browsers, or with any of the software programs on the computer. Any ideas?
