Whenever I click on Print Edit WE button the edit page opens but all the buttons are inactive and the PE button in the toolbar shows SUS for suspend. Nothing I do fixes it. I've removed and reinstalled the lastest version of PE from the add-on web page 3 or 4 times. A right click on the PE button drops down a menu but the one I need, Edit, puts PE into suspend mode. What could be causing this? I'm running FF 83.0, 64 bit, Windows 10 Pro. Print Edit has always worked before. Does the latest version have a bug? Or does FF maybe have a bug?

I'm trying to run Firefox on headless mode through Selenium in AWS Lambda. Since Lambda marks the root file system as read-only except /tmp/. I pointed the geckodriver to write the logs to /tmp but still Firefox is not starting up and it's failing with the following error.

Any guidance on how to get it working?

firefox_driver = webdriver.Firefox(firefox_profile=ff_profile, firefox_binary='/opt/firefox/firefox', options=firefox_options, service_log_path='/tmp/geckodriver.log')

I recall that when entering full screen for YouTube videos and whatnot, the address bar would instantly hide, much like how it does in Edge and Chrome. This no longer seems to occur with FireFox. I have ensured that auto-hide is enabled in about:config, and the problem persists in private windows with all add-ons disabled. The address bar only actually hides after interacting with it, such as right clicking on it and back onto the video.

See top of attached image.

Any help is appreciated.

Hello, We use gContactSync and Gmail account to sync our mailing lists (address book) to all our computers. That way we can write "To: mailinglistname" and easily send the email to our colleagues in that group. Unfortunately, gContactSync do not work with the latest thunderbird version. We tried similar addons, but they download everything in one address book, without separating the mailing lists. Also we tried with @yahoo and @outlook contacts, still no luck.

Can anyone suggest a way to sync thunderbird address book mailing lists on multiple PCs?

Thank you. If there are difficulties understanding my english, please ask and I will try to elaborate.

Hi

I have an issue.

I have used Firefox browser for over a year now and this had never happened.

When I zoomed with the touchpad it would always only zoom text and not the whole page. That's my preferred setting. From a few days now it has changed and now it is zooming the whole thing and not text only. I need to only zoom text for my work, as it is more convenient and comfortable. I tried uninstalling and installing the browser again and it hasn't helped. I checked this article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/font-size-and-zoom-increase-size-of-web-pages and did what it suggested but nothing changes.

"How to only change the size of the text

Instead of changing the size of everything, you can just change the size of the text.

   Press the Alt key to temporarily bring up the traditional Firefox menus. On the menu at the top, click View, then go to Zoom.
   Select Zoom Text Only. This makes the controls only change the size of text; not images. "

That didn't do. My "Zoom Text Only" is already selected but then again, it is zooming the whole thing. I also tried it under the options to choose "Zoom Text Only" and it's still the same.

Can anyone please help me? Is this an issue with the browser or my computer?

Thank you so much in advance. I really need to get it back to how it was a few days ago.

With the new v85 of Firefox... for Microsoft Print to PDF...

the defaults for print headers & footers has changed and is no longer available to edit or even view. It seems as though my settings remain in place for other printing options like my physical printer but even there the options are not editable or viewable.

There used to be a "page setup" option but I have not be able to find this anywhere anymore.

I'm assuming that it has to do with the bug fix for pdf printing but doesn't seem that it should be an intended outcome of the fix.

Any work arounds anyone knows about or has found?

Ever since I downloaded Firefox, I have been having an issue where when i click on a link from a search engine, it automatically opens the link in a new tab. I've looked around in the settings menu, but I couldn't find any way to alter it. The closest option would be to open link in new window, but I just want to open the link in the tab that I am currently in. I have tried going into about:config although I couldn't find any setting that successfully fixed the issue. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated!
